Pagan News Beagle: Watery Wednesday, October 7

Who are your ancestors and how should your honor them? Pagan organizations seek aid from the community in the form of fundraising. And a Pagan icon is mourned. It's Watery Wednesday, our weekly segment on news about the Pagan community. All this and more for the Pagan News Beagle!

Are your ancestors only those from whom you're directly descended? Or does it include other people? And should you honor all of your ancestors equally? These are the questions Valerie Fresemen attempts to tackle in this post for Patheos.

If you're interested in Tarot you might want to take a look at this new project by Wicked Tarot Cards. Crowdfunded on Kickstarter and featuring horror-themed art by Marshall Rossi the project promises a full deck with add-ons.

Our friends at The Wild Hunt mourn the loss of author and folklorist Michael Howard, who passed late last month. You can read a detailed biography and summary of his accomplishments here along with why he'll be missed.

Cherry Hill Seminary, which has done great work preparing Pagans for a career of leadership and ministry, is looking for help continuing their mission. You can learn more about the scholarship drive here.

Not every Pagan is a polytheist and the website Humanistic Paganism wants more people to know that. If you're interested in non-theist Paganism, be sure to check out their new mission statement.

Aryós Héngwis (or the more modest Héngwis for short) is a native of the Pontic-Caspian steppe, born some 5000 years ago, near the village of Dereivka. In his youth he stood out from the other snakes for his love of learning and culture, eventually coming into the service of the local reǵs before moving westward toward Europe. Most recently, Aryós Héngwis left his home to pursue a new life in America, where he has come under the employ of BBI Media as an internet watchdog (or watchsnake, if you will), ever poised to strike the unwary troll.
