The Turning Of The Wheel - Year One

I was taken by surprise when I realized that this blog is already a year old! A YEAR!!! The wheel has completed an entire turning and this blog has covered some ground!

Time has flown because school had me so preoccupied. I have loved the way time has slowed this summer, and I'm feeling like a floating blossom in the slower time-stream, rather than a twig bobbing madly in the faster one I had been in!

So here we are! The Tangled Hedge in the light of a second summer! Have some berries, take a mushroom cap or two with you, and feel free to collect some dew for your potions. :) May a merry summer and fruitful second year ensue! Mother bless us, in the sun.

Magic on the Altiplano/Aramu Muru, Peru: Part Two

I hopped into a boat and left the shore far behind. Ahead suddenly loomed a Uros Island, in Lake Titicaca, on top of the world, Peru. When I got to the island the water drew me in and I immediately wanted to dive into these out of the ordinary waters. When I emerged into the water I felt purified, cleansed and peaceful. This gigantic lake on top of the world was clear, pristine and most sacred.

As I relaxed into the unique floating island ambiance feeling divine, I chewed on totora reed and played with the children. Potatoes and eggs were served for dinner, the potatoes cooked in the putu, which was a small oven created for cooking potatoes.

I spent most of the first night not in my four person totora reed hut, whose owners had quickly vacated so I could sleep there, but under a blanket of brilliant stars so close that I felt if I could just jump high enough I could touch them.

#PaganNewsBeagle #FieryTuesday

Are the divisive culture wars focusing on personal morality (contraception, LGBT marriage etc) pushing young people away from organized religion altogether? Some polling seems to suggest that the religious right is winning legal battles, but losing the "hearts & minds" war, especially among younger Americans.

Loads of reflection on the Supreme Court "contraception vs. religion" cases:

Yup, it's not over: next up for SCOTUS are dozens of religious non-profits eager to test the limits of the HobbyLobby case. http://bigstory.ap.org/article/nonprofits-contraceptive-cases-next-justices

Tired of #HobbyLobby? Get ready for Wheaton College, where filing the form to be exempt from ObamaCare contraception mandate is considered a sin. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/07/07/supreme-court-wheaton-college_n_5564125.html?&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000055

Sex magick used to be a popular part of the Craft. Now, it's rare and somewhat taboo. Sable Aradia explores why, in this Patheos Pagan article.

(Horner Park in Chicago)

Think about it for a minute: When was the last time you met up with local Pagans to do something that wasn't specifically wrapped around a ritual? Has it been a while? I'm not talking about traveling cross-country all caravan-style to attend a big festival with Big Name Pagans speaking; that doesn't count here. I'm talking about people in your own community, people who may live just a few miles away, who you may even chat with online regularly. Have you met up with some of them for coffee? Dinner? Fruit picking? A night at the show? Hanging out at someone's home? A not-specifically-Pagan drum circle even? For many of us, myself included, it's probably been a lot longer than we care to admit.
