PAGANISM

This page contains every post I’ve written that falls under the term Paganism. Obviously, that word can mean many different things to different people, but here is a list I always keep current. Feel free to scroll to a topic that interests you most.

No matter your background or religion, we all feel a connection to this earth we inhabit. This is a space to slow down and explore our spiritual bond to Nature and the Universe.

Esoteric Occultism

I’ve created this esoteric occultism guide as an introduction to all things magical. It covers all the basics from history and beliefs to practices and symbols associated with this fascinating spiritual topic.

Moon Magic

Every full moon has its own name based on the month or the season in which it appears. Creating a name for each full Moon allowed people to reflect on each season and to contemplate how it affects us AND the natural world around us.

There can be some variation on the full Moon names due to the origins from whence they came. You can find them rooted in European (Anglo-Saxon and Germanic) and Native American history. I created a guide to each Full Moon complete with their meanings and how you can celebrate.

Lots of love to you and remember as always…
