PaganNewsBeagle Airy Monday Dec 8

In today's Airy Monday post, we've got PaganStudies at the AAR; new classes at Cherry Hill; the New Alexandrian library; buzzards (tracked from space); and a look the Orion mission.

“The AAR annual meeting is a huge intellectual energy infusion, not to mention a social occasion with Pagan Studies scholars from around the world,” reports Chas Clifton, co-chair of AAR’s Contemporary Pagan Studies Group. The Wild Hunt has the rest of the story.

Cherry Hill Pagan seminary announced its slate of upcoming spring classes last week. They include offerings in subjects including Sacred Cycles; Ministering to Military Pagans; Paganism and the Body; and much more. Check the whole list out here.

PaganNewsBeagle: Fiery Tuesday Dec 2

Today's Fiery Tuesday posts are sure to stir a bit of controversy -- hopefully of a useful kind! Pagan Activism Conference, lowering police shootings; secularization of holidays; the (humanistic Pagan) case against spellwork; scary monsters in "pagan" festival.

First up, a report on last week's online Pagan Activism Conference. Which brings up the question: when and how should Paganism and political/environmental activism come together?

PaganNewsBeagle Airy Monday December 1

The PaganNewsBeagle took off last week (our internet went down!) but we are back in the saddle. In today's Airy Monday segment, we concentrate on academic issues of interest to Pagans and their allies. Magpie Wicca?; degrees of British traditional Wicca; Pagans and the land; Novo Religio (an academic magazine devoted to New Religious Movements); the World Religions and Spirituality Project.

Is Wicca inherently syncretic? Sable Aradia says "yes!" and offers ideas as to the difference Wicca's borrowing of ideas from many paths makes in inter-Pagan relations.

PaganNewsBeagle Airy Monday Nov 24

Today's Airy Monday (posted in advance on Sunday since the Beagle will be out of town Monday morning) focuses on something different: Sagittarius. (The Pagan News Beagle confesses that his writer has Sag rising, so he's got a particular liking for this sign.) And as we just entered this sign on Nov 22, let's celebrate our movement into the Sagittarius season! "Interstellar" Sag energy; E.T. the Sagittarian?; nebulas in Sagittarius; new chemicals in the deep space of Sagittarius; who is Chiron, the patron of Sagittarius?

At her "Gateway Goddess" blog, Cathy Nance opines that Christopher Nolan's new film "Interstellar" perfectly embodies the energy of Sagittarius.
