Art, Spirit, and Wonder

Greetings Pagan Blogosphere!

I am very happy and honored to be here on Pagan Square. For those of you who don’t know me, I am Helena Domenic, and I am a Pagan, an art historian, and an artist. I am one of the Elders of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel, and I am also the creator of the Fellowship of the Fool Tarot deck, as well as a Lenormand deck that I am still working on. Some of the questions I seek to find an answer for are “How does one talk about the Ineffable? How have humans tried to express their beliefs and feelings about the divine through Art? Where does art become ritual? Where does ritual become art?”

Pagan News Beagle: Faithful Friday, May 15

The world is a wonderful and diverse place. Today, in the Pagan News Beagle, we take a look at that diversity. How are Siberian shamans making a comeback? What does theology have to do with #BlackLivesMatter? And how do yesteryear's witches relate to modern women's health? These questions and more are discussed in today's articles from around the web.

Tarot Magick for Everyone

Tarot magick can be as simple as finding an appropriate card and leaving in on your altar.  You can also sleep with the card under your pillow, or hold the card to your chakras and breathe in its energy.

Tarot magick works with the idea that each tarot card holds a specific energy. Choose the card that holds the energy that you want in your life, and consciously bring the energy of that card into your life. Tarot is a simple, effective tool for this kind of magickal work.

Stags that Wear Torcs

One of the mysterious creatures that inhabit the dark forests of Arthurian lore is the stag with a crown around its neck.

This bizarre figure has entered heraldry and folklore as well. A stag gorged with a crown (French gorge = “throat”) appears on numerous coats of arms and pub signs.

The meaning is not far to find. The stag is the preeminently crowned animal—“crowned with antler”—and, as such, Lord of the Forest. Still: a crown around the neck? Weird.

Peeking from behind the High Medieval Dudgeon of much Arthurian lore one may sometimes see hints of something older and wilder: retroflections of the early Iron Age, post-Roman Keltic world that gave rise to the later material. And here, I suspect, we may find a key to understanding the stag gorged with a crown.

On The Edge of Divine Emergence

Come present in this moment. The edge of sacred emergence is right here, right here now. It’s present in anything you do. Find the edge by fully becoming present. Include whatever there is. Feel you are always, always being met. Maybe not by everyone in the way you would wish. But who’s always there, and always meeting , is earth. And space. Will you be the one who disappoints them? Or will you show up fully? If so, from this connection energy will start to shine. It will invite others to become more present too. Start moving from this connection, from this energy. It’s a place where you don’t know if the movement started in you or in the other. That’s emergence happening.

Pagan News Beagle: Earthy Thursday, May 14

It's that time of the week again: time for Earthy Thursday! For this week we've gathered a wide variety of stories that discuss environmentalism, nature, and wildlife. Read on to learn about prehistoric mammals, puffins' recolonization of the American northeast, and the urbanization of local food. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle.

Working with the energetic momentum of whatever it's your intention to shift - rather than against it - is almost always ideal. The Cauldron of Lilac Fire visualization is invaluable for doing just that. It naturally balances and powerfully purifies pretty much anything you'd like, including (but not limited to) people, objects, relationships, physical spaces, and situations. And the more you practice, the easier and quicker it becomes.
