A photo of a magical place outdoors:

Our outdoor ritual space by Magical Musings

My coven has a few outdoor areas we work in, but the most magical is when whatever space we are in seems to lift out of place and time and we are surrounded by mist or darkness and all that is there is the magic.

Lugh

Lugh

A favorite God

Lugh/Luga/Llew is a pan-Celtic God.  He has the city of Lyons named for him, as well as a pan-Celtic holiday, Lughnasadh held is his honor or in honor of his foster mother Tailtu in August.   He is a god of many skills, granted to him by his mother and he is a god of light, he has a very bright aura like the sun.

Many of my favorite masculine Irish figures are not gods, but rather demi-gods or heroes: Fionn, Cuchulian, Ossian, and Angus.  However, Lugh is all God, so I call him one of my favorites.

We recently held Lughnasadh and we always have an excellent loaf of bread made by one of my coven mates and this year was no different.  It wasn’t long before we had eaten all of him except for the best share which was offered to Him for fertility in our crops.

I updated my page a bit and added a blogroll.  I read a lot of pagan blogs, but these are the ones that I get very excited to read when I see a new post is up.

19 Candles

19 Candles

Magical Muse: this blog is written by the priestess of my coven.  She always has interesting content about her art, our celebrations, and raising her family the country pagan way.  Magical Muse makes beautiful paintings, collages and photographs.  I love her children and every week when I go to coven they are a highlight of my visit.

Sea Priestess: writes from the UK about her traditional style of heathen witchcraft.  Her articles are scholarly and well researched.  I highly admire her opinions and devotion to education.  In addition she has a great youtube channel princessannikki that is updated almost everyday.  In addition she writes amazing poetry and has a soul for the craft.

Therioshamanism: one of my friends locally, Lupa, writes a blog about her experiences creating a new nature shamanism focused around working with animal spirits.  Lupa has a room full of animal pelts and skins she has collected through resale and she creates dance costumes for otherworld crossing and channelling animal spirits.

Wild Hunt: News relevant to pagans, witches and women’s spirituality with commentry.  Updated nearly everyday Jason watches out for news that is about witches and pagans or will affect witches and pagans.  Jason is also on the board of the Cherry Hill seminary for pagans and has an excellent radio podcast, a darker shade of pagan.

Witch of Forest Grove: Sarah writes from British Columbia, Canada–which is a few hours North of my home.  Sarah is a practicing traditional witch and her blog is very inspiring to me.  Sarah is an artist, wildcrafter, and mead maker.  The Pacific Northwest is a beautiful and spiritual place.  Sarah works closely with the land around her and it is encouraging to follow another practioner on a similar path’s journey through pictures and prose.

If you have a pagan, art, or witchcraft blog you want me to check out let me know.  I am always adding new stuff to my rss feeds on my google reader, and if I read your blog for a long time and get attached to it, I might add it to my blogroll.
