Introducing: Capricious Symbols by S. Lynn Hunt

I did this thing a week or so ago, and it just now occurred to me that I could reblog it here. With the gift-giving holiday season approaching, consider purchasing Capricious Symbols for the avid reader on your gift list.

S. Lynn Hunt

I finally decided to put together a short anthology of a few short stories. I don’t have many right now (but I do have a virtual file cabinet of story ideas on my computer!), so I enhanced the anthology with a three chapter sneak-peek at Strange Magic 1: In Touch With Death.

It is also currently available in the Apple iBookstore, and for Barnes and Noble NOOK.

It will be available for Amazon Kindle and Kobo some time in the next week to three weeks, depending on the service. Keeping checking your favorite to see if it’s available!

(Update: It’s now available at both Kobo and Amazon Kindle!)

I hope some of you decide to purchase; I am a college student, and can use all…

Chaos Paganism’s Calendar: Samhain for a Modern Pagan

Samhain is next month, and I'm excited! It's my favorite holiday, both secularly and spiritually. I absolutely intend to wear a costume, even if only a simple one, that Monday evening to class! Traditionally--as much as anything can be traditional in such a young spiritual community--Samhain has a strong connection to the Ancestors and Death,… Continue reading Chaos Paganism’s Calendar: Samhain for a Modern Pagan

A Celestine by Any Other Name…

I wrote a while back about magical names and my relationship (or lack thereof) with them. Since then, I've changed my name (and thus the url for this blog) yet again. Thankfully, I don't see myself changing it again any time soon. Of course, I didn't expect to do so when I first started using… Continue reading A Celestine by Any Other Name…

Looking back, though,… Continue reading Because I could not stop for Death–

The Holy Days of One Modern Pagan

Part of trying to distinguish my path from Wicca--which is important to me not because I hate Wicca or Wiccans, but simply because I'm not Wiccan and feel my path should reflect this--is figuring out a set of holidays that actually celebrate things I, as a modern Pagan, find important and even holy. Also, that… Continue reading The Holy Days of One Modern Pagan

Polytheism is NOT a tradition

I’m just gonna leave this here.

Magick From Scratch

I’m going to keep this brief, because I have a life to live. But if someone tells you thatdiversity is “destroying polytheism” please show them this.

Dear Concerned Party,

You are being shown this blog post because you seem to think that diversity is contrary to Polytheism. You want to set up a Polytheist Community wherein only certain types of Polytheists count.

I’m just going to start by assuming that you have never taken an Anthropology 101 type course, and that your grasp of ancient human cultures is extremely limited. Forgive me. I can think of no other reason for your distress, or for your misguided notion that you can treat Polytheism like it is one community and one tradition.

I can think of no other reason why you would look at the ancient world, the Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Icelandic, German, Celtic, Slavic, Chinese, and Nigerian Polytheisms, and think that…
