    Sticky: Re: The Tower Card

    I've never had it come up except when poop was hitting the fan...I'm referring to readings being done for me.

    Addiction, relapse, divorce, suicidal feelings, ending friendship etc.

  2. Re: How do you feel about Tarot reading over the internet?

    Depends on the reader. I've had a few online readings that were totally fluffy bunnies and bore zero connection to anything in my life.

    And I've had a few great ones.

    The great ones were from...

    Re: Agnostic question to Pagan - The Afterlife

    This is how I see it...we follow different trads, we work with different deities or none at all. We have vastly different life experiences. I think it's the same with the afterlife, some will have...

    Re: Finding strength through religion

    My religion, Pantheism, is a means through which I explore and accept reality. When I start drifting into superstition, feeling sorry for myself, resenting what is...it sets me straight again.

    Re: Organ Donation and Paganism

    My faith absolutely has no reason not to. I'm a donor, and a Pantheist.

    I give blood. I know I was glad it was there when I needed it. One of my dear friends has a transplanted heart.

  6. Poll: Re: The biggest hindrance to spiritual development

    For some reason I couldn't see the poll..so I'm winging it. What used to get me hung up was the belief that being spiritual was a hard thing, always in contrast with real life and required a crazy...

    Re: Pagan Pet Peeves

    #1... people who claim to speak for Pagans in general in the media, and then puke up some pablum that sounds like the already mentioned "Ultra Spiritual" videos of YouTube fame.

    Or as if Paganism...

    Re: Are the gods/goddesses real or fantasy?

    If the gods are real, in and of themselves, and they have chosen to interact with humans, I think they would not expect things to remain static. They know that humanity, culture, and the perspective...

    I write my own most of the time. If I feel stuck or blocked then I hit google, or visit the world prayers site, or look into several prayer collection books I have. Sometimes I will take a prayer and...

    Re: Becoming or Discovering?

    For me it was a case of finding out that there was a name for what I believed and practiced and that other people did it too. It was like finding family I didn't know I had!
  14. Re: Responses to the "Paganism is Outdated" Argument

    I've never had anyone tell me my religion is outdated, but I've had lots of people say it's not valid because it's NOT old. They say that there are next to no real surviving pagan religions. They...
  15. Re: Is there such a thing as an incompetent pagan?

    And a couple thoughts of my own. I do think there is such a thing as an incompetent (fill in the blank). Flaky. Taking on something, being pretty sure you're not going...

    Re: Pagans and sex

    It's come to the point the when anyone claims to speak for "Pagans" my eyes roll. The idea that anyone can give any fact or opinion that speaks for thousands of faiths is ridiculous.

  18. Re: Establishment of a Pagan state akin to Israel for Judaism

    I wouldn't want to live in any Religion based state, so there's that. From what I've seen they tend not to work out well.

    Also, I have no more in common with many pagan faiths than I do with...
  19. Re: Candles - how often, what for, what type and why?

    Re: false gods

    Monotheists are bound to say that any god other than their own is a false god.
