I know there are a lot of traditionalists out there, and I am by no means one of them. When I first began on this path, there was very little online. Each website said you HAD to be in a Coven, which HAD to be Gardinarian or Alexandrian. As for finding books…I had no idea… Continue reading Finding your Local Quarters
I cannot organise a house warming party, let alone a major event. Organising my handfasting was stressful enough. I really just wanted to use this post to thank the Pagan Awareness Network (PAN Inc), in particular the wonderful Pete, for organising such a wonderful evening on Saturday night.

We all come from the Horned One And to Him we shall return Like a flash of light Shining from a fiery storm Hoof and Horn! Hoof and Horn! All that dies shall be reborn! Fire and rain! Fire and rain! All that dies shall live again! As we’re approaching Midwinter here in Australia, and Midsummer in… Continue reading Kings of Oak and Holly
