PaganNewsBeagle Airy Monday April 20

Happy Monday! In today's Airy Monday post we share stories of the ancient past -- hidden beneath our feet. Welcome to the wonderful world of cave cities! (And check out the bonus post on future caves -- off world!) Cave cities: Nottingham, Turkey, Rome, and .... the Moon?

Pagan News Beagle: Faithful Friday, April 17

Welcome back to Faithful Friday, faithful readers! This week we'll be looking at the intersection of religion and society as a whole, particularly in regards to how the law and morality comes into play.

PaganNewsBeagle Magical Monday April 6

Howdy Beagle fans! Today we've got an installment of our occasional Magickal Monday series, in which we bring you stories of witchcraft, conjure, and all kinds of magick! A new shrine for Marie Laveau; the link between Voudou and traditional Haitian foods; L Ron Hubbard: magician?; capitalist magic?; garden magic for spring.

In light of the recent restrictions on visiting her tomb, the unveiling of a new shrine dedicated to Marie Laveau in New Orleans is cause for celebration for many.

This post describes the links between Voudou and traditional Haitian foods, as well as commenting on the legacy of colonialism (past and present) and its affect on Voudon practice.
