Recently I got a flurry of various tarot cards, oracle cards and electronic cards, several books, also both physical and electronic..(There will eventually be some reviews) so while I am busy reading playing and coveting my new shinnies, I will leave you with some interesting things I have read in my corner of the pagan interwebs. And a couple of interesting thoughts I have had, in lew of an actual post.. enjoy!
This from the Quaker Pagan blog, caught my interest this week as it speaks to the way I have been feeling of late about the Pagan community here in Wellington, especially the bit about old and new, as the people change in the group, new people come through, take leadership rolls, change is inevitable. So it is nice to know that this is somewhat normal.
Next up this week was the Wild Hunt an excellent blog/pagan news site that you should be visiting regularly anyway, mostly based in teh northern hemisphere but it has some excellent contributers, good articles, and good Pagan Reporters
This is of interest to me because I have after much deliberation and research gotten an Ipad mini.. which love, and with this I have started reading electronic books, and being that I am a Witch who is also an avid reader, I have spent some time searching the internets for good electronic books on a variety of Pagan subjects, from Ariadia to Voudou, from Traditional Witchcraft to Asatru, from Tarot to Seers there is quite a lot out there. And now apparently there will be more..
It is also of interest as my yet unfinished masters thesis is about modern pagan books and how they have developed, changed, been published and by whom so a most interesting read.
Some interesting conversations I had revolved around tarot cards, physical or electronic, and how people found electronic verse physical.. for reading and sacredness.. then I wondered, as I stared at my shine ipad mini, how would you go about cleansing them? Or making your electronic reading device sacred? So far I have a nice cover, and have filled it with pagan ebooks, and two card apps, as well as a moon app.. that should do it.. what do you reccon? Maybe I will put that on the list of blog post ideas..
And meanwhile in Canada, where my Canadian pagans resided the first Witches Sabbat Weekend has happened at Ravens Knoll , put together by several wonderful people, you can find out more about them here . So I will leave you with this wonderful picture of hold Horney.
