“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

 Pagan: The Voyager Connection – April 2009 – Captain’s Log

Paranormalby Captain Pick A Card (aka James Wanless)

Tarot Archetypes: Resources for Recession and Revitalization

In these times of challenge and stress, we need resources to survive and sustain. Because success is ultimately an inside job, by activating the powerful Archetypes of Tarot that exist within us and in the etheric force fields, we have tapped into a vast mine of resource energy and wisdom.

We explore the Archetypes of Fool through Fortune to gather strength and guidance. In so doing, we learn to embody the cards and understand them at the deepest level of knowing.

THE STRESS TEST

So, the federal government is going to administer a "stress test" to America's banks by putting hypothetical demands on them to see what kind of resources they possess to meet the posed challenges.

Synchronistically speaking, "as above, so below," and "I am thou," we are all undergoing stress tests. ...

 Pagan: Collapse and Elections: My Lessons from Katrina

OpinionBy Starhawk

I've been meaning to write this essay for three years, since I went down to New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina to volunteer with a grassroots organization called Common Ground Relief. I went to New Orleans because for decades I've been part of groups holding a few key beliefs, among them, that this current system is unsustainable and will eventually come crashing down, and the other-that small scale, directly democratic grassroots organizing is the most empowering and effective way to take action. I wanted to see what it was like in a place where the crash had come, and to see if our grassroots, do-it-yourself mode of organizing could work in that situation.

Now, with the Gulf Coast battered by a new round of storms, Wall Street deconstructing and capitalism in meltdown mode, that prediction is coming true. It seems a good time to review those lessons.

In New Orleans, the crash had come. Not just the devastation left by the storm-every major system that was supposed to offer protection, succor or relief had failed. Starting with the faulty levees built by the Army Corps of Engineers, moving on to an evacuation plan that was no plan at all for those without means, to completely inadequate shelter facilities for those who remained, to disorganized and punitive responses for those who survived, nothing official was working....

 Pagan: New Moon Ritual

SpiritualityBy Starhawk

[Aug. 31, 2008] This is how magic works:

We are gathered on sacred ground overlooking the Mississippi to celebrate the new moon and to begin this week of demonstrations and actions outside the Republican National Convention. We have an intention for the ritual, an intention the planners have been working with here in the Twin Cities for months: to court an upwelling of earth wisdom.

Magic, we say, is the art of changing consciousness at will—that’s Dion Fortune’s definition. Implicit in that is ‘art’, imagery, poetry, and we’ve been looking for the imagery that will embody our intention. The most powerful rituals are built around one clear image and one clear intention.

But we keep getting multiple images: webs, crystals, bedrock, surging water. The hurricane, roaring toward the Gulf, back toward New Orleans where many of us volunteered after Katrina. And dragons.

“Oh please Goddess not dragons!” I’m saying silently inside my own mind. “With or without dungeons—high wince factor. Overused. Disneyesque.” But dragons it is—protective Chinese dragons, ancient earth serpent powers, water dragons, fierce, fire-breathing guardians.

Many years ago, I had a friend who lived in a group house in San Francisco. He used to say that every collective needed a dragon who lived in the basement, someone really ill tempered who will emerge from time to time and drive off those people who come to visit for a night and end up staying for a month, eating up all your sweet pickle chips and losing your bicycle. ...

 Pagan: Republican National Convention—Convergence Center Raided

The NewsBy Starhawk

It’s Friday night. Our Pagan Cluster is sitting on the bluff of the Mississippi having our first real meeting, when Lisa gets a call. The cops are raiding the Convergence Center, where we’re organizing meetings and trainings for the protests against the Republican National Convention. It’s not a role play, the caller says. It’s real.

Instantly, we jump up and hurry back the six or eight blocks to the old theater we are using for meetings, trainings and social gatherings. I ‘ve spent the last two days doing magical activism trainings, teaching people how to stay calm and grounded in emergency situations and when things get chaotic. Now it’s time to put the training into practice. Aaron, a tall, red-headed young man who could be one of my nephews strides along beside me. “Are you grounded?” I ask him. He nods, and runs ahead.

Nobody can keep up with Lisa, who speeds ahead like an arrow, walking, not running, but still covering the ground quickly. Andy and I trail behind. We’re often street buddies, because we’re both big, slow, and supremely calm and stubborn, willing to wade into almost any situation and become the immovable object.

We’re stopped by a line of cops just before we reach the building. They refuse to let us through, or to move their van which is blocking Scarecrow’s car. There’s an investigation underway, they say, and won’t say more. ...

 Pagan: "Tarot As Therapy"

Paranormalby James Wanless

I'll never forget the time a participant in a Voyager workshop declared that as a result of seeing the Fool-Child as her "Life Card," she understood for the first time in her life who she is. And she stated quite dramatically that she could have saved 10 years of therapy and thousands of dollars! Wow.

How can tarot act as a therapeutic tool? Let me explain. These are changing times and "complexifying," so traditional solutions and words don't always work. As the complex Albert Einstein once said, "We cannot solve any problems by the same kind of thinking that got us into the them." That's why Einstein never did mathematics to derive his answers for his questions. He talked to a butterfly or imagined a surfer barreling down a ray of light. The point is that we all need to get "outside the box" and look for novel insights. That is why the mystical, symbolic and intuitive tarot works as an innovative tool.

By seeking different ways of looking at ourselves, we gain a whole new understanding. Indeed. I have one client who has been through all sorts of therapies and now finds that the cards work just fine. Though I have taken just one psychology class, so what? Experts often can't see the forest for the trees. Be on the watch out for "expertism" and complacency. If you stay true to the tarot's universal wholistic principles, you are on safe grounds as a counselor.

The beauty of contemporary tarot is that it's used as a wholistic mirror of ourselves and an empowering map for personal and professional results. ...

 Pagan: What Are the Runen?

History / CultureBy: Steve Anthonijsz

“Rune-magic is the great knowledge of cosmic energies, the recognition of hidden energies of nature, of the subtle heavenly, as well as earthly streams, waves, entities, and powers. All forms of higher wisdom, all secret knowledge of the world, are but fragments, and through the course of time have been for the most part distorted and corrupted; but at one time it had its origin in the divine, Aryan magic of the Runes.” ~~Siegfried Adolf Kummer, Runen=Magie 1933

“What is the meaning of a river? I don’t know. What I
Do know is that a river is a stream of flowing energy
That performs many important functions.
What is the meaning of electricity? I don't know. But it
is an energy that can be harnessed to perform many
important functions.
What are Runes? I do know. They are keys to the
Creative Energies of the Universe. They are small
packets of energy inside what the Quantum scientists
call the Quantum Ocean. This is what our ancestors
called the Mind of God, The Grand Architect of the
Universe, the Cosmic All, the Prime Mover.”

~~Ragnar Storyteller, Rune Meanings 2007

The Runen are the single most celebrated and frequently discussed aspect of our triuwa--yet the subject remains arguably the least understood facet of it. Pop-occultniks have marketed books, “stones,” jewellery, and other merchandise offering nothing for the consumer’s money except an opportunity to join what seems to be an underground fad. Thousands of websites on the subject of the Runen appear on the internet ranging from the academic to the infantile, and from the truly arcane to the simply bizarre. ...
