It's that time of week again, when we bring you science and Earth-related stories to read and consider. This week for Earthy Thursday we bring you a number of articles relating to the ongoing California drought, which continues to threaten the state's agricultural industry. Read where and how the drought is hitting hardest and what you might be doing to help aggravate it (and what you can do to stop). Additionally, we've gathered a few other stories, including one about how best to weather a heat wave (no pun intended). All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!
PaganSquare is a community blog space where Pagans can discuss topics relevant to the life and spiritual practice of all Pagans.
Exploring the wilds of our amazing, interconnected world, the Pagan News Beagle sniffs out and fetches stories for our communities of Pagans, Witches, Wiccans, Heathens, Polytheists, Gaians, and Goddess-worshippers. No story is too small or too large for the Beagle: share news of your community with the Beagle via Twitter @PaganNewsBeagle.
We're back for Watery Wednesday, when we bring you news about Pagan and interfaith communities around the world.

All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!
It's that time of week again: Fiery Tuesday, when we shine a light on the political issues of our time as they relate to religion generally and Paganism specifically.

Everything's local right? Well, maybe so, but that doesn't mean that in an increasingly interconnected world it isn't important to keep track of the rest of the world too. This week for Watery Wednesday we take a look at communal celebrations and festivities around the world, both within and outside of Paganism. Read about a Pagan festival in Ukraine, the celebration of the summer in Spain, and the enshrinement of a beloved feline in Japan. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!
