The Shepherd

The Shepherd Cover "How sweet is the shepherd’s sweet lot!
From the morn to the evening he strays;
He shall follow his sheep all the day,
And his tongue shall be filled with praise.

For he hears the lambs’ innocent call,
And he hears the ewes’ tender reply;
He is watchful while they are in peace,
For they know when their shepherd is nigh."

Petition To Hekate

Petition To Hekate Image
A petition for her patronage is recorded in the third century by Hippolytus in Philosphumena:

"Come infernal, terrestrial, and heavenly Bombo (Hecate),

goddess of the broad roadways, of the crossroad,

thou who goest to and fro at night,

torch in hand, enemy of the day.

Friend and lover of darkness,

thou who doest rejoice

when the bitches are howling

and warm blood is spilled,

thou who art walking amid the phantom

and the in place of the tombs,

thou whose thirst is blood,

thou who doest strike chill and fear in mortal hearts,

Gorgo, Mormo, Moon of a thousand forms,

cast a propitious eye on our sacrifice."

from The Gay Mage

What Would You Do

What Would You Do Cover if People were few
and contact was
far and Between?

Where would you be
if not one was free

if nothing were real
and nowhere on earth
was it green?

You would be here
and I would be near
for you and I both
play this scene.

The scene that we play
is with us Today,
an act we shall
never escape.

The Keepers Of Imbolc

The Keepers Of Imbolc Cover (by: Deva A.M. Bluewing)

In silence they gather
Black robed against the Blacker
Waning Winter night
Tapers aglow with Faerie FyreThey descend from the high forestsTo the gentle fields of farming folkBecause the time draws nigh

Clasping each the other's hands
They dance through the darkness
All to-ing-and-fro-ing
With upturned faces
(Common eye hath never seen)

Faint silver-blueShimmering grows about themThe air is electricFertile with Love, Pregnant with Life

Beneath the soft white Quilting
Within the womb of Earth
The shimmering penetrates
A seed's shell

Blue-silver fading
Hands thrown high
In the instant b'twixt night and light
Dancing shadows dissolve
And upon the Sun's first ray
A whispered, "So Mote It Be...

I Saw A Chapel All Of Gold

I Saw A Chapel All Of Gold Cover That none did dare to enter in,
And many weeping stood without,
Weeping, mourning, worshipping.

I saw a serpent rise between
The white pillars of the door,
And he forc’d and forc’d and forc’d,
Down the golden hinges tore.

And along the pavement sweet,
Set with pearls and rubies bright,
All his slimy length he drew
Till upon the altar white

Vomiting his poison out
On the bread and on the wine.
So I turn’d into a sty
And laid me down among the swine.

Religion Belief

Religion Belief Image
AP 10/28 1245 Inmate's Witch
ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) -- A prison
inmate and the superintendent are
awaiting advice on whether the
prisoner's minister -- a witch -- can
worship with him.
Prison Superintendent William McRae
said he asked the state attorney
general's office to determine if
witchcraft can be considered a religion.
Even if it is, he said, Robert Edwards'
request would violate a policy
recommending that inmates not convert to
another faith after they enter prison.
Edwards, 35, who listed himself as a
Protestant when he entered St. Cloud
Reformatory five years ago for a
16-year, nine-month sentence for
second-degree murder, says he's being
persecuted for his religious beliefs.
"Someone once said, What man does
not understand, he seeks to destroy,"'
he told the St. Cloud Daily Times in an
interview published Monday. "I think
that's what's happening to me in this
Edwards said he began corresponding
with Antiga, a practicing witch and
licensed minister, about six months ago
after he saw her on a TV program. He
said he thinks officials are stalling
because they misunderstand witchcraft,
which he said has nothing to do with
Satanism or the occult.
Witchcraft, Antiga said, is an
ancient Earth-honoring religion that
predates Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism
and Hinduism and takes its inspiration
from nature, the movement of the planets
and the cycle of the seasons.
McRae said witchcraft has evil
connotations for him.
"I don't rush out and embrace
witchcraft or Satanism or voodoo, or any
of those things. They seem more founded
on evil than good. Therefore, I don't
see any advantage to inmates or to
myself in having them in here,
" he said.
The rule against inmate conversions
is recommended by the state Chaplaincy
Advisory Committee to protect vulnerable
prisoners, McRae said. If the attorney
general says witchcraft is a religion,
he said, he may appeal to the Chaplaincy
Advisory Committee, which advises
prisons on religious matters.
If the attorney general's office
decides witchcraft is not a religion,
then McRae said, he would not allow
Edwards to have a ceremony.
AP 10/31 0244 Prison Witchcraft
By LAURA WILKINSON Associated Press
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A prison inmate
won a fight to have a witch perform a
ritual in his cell after corrections
officials decided he has a right to
worship as he chooses.
Robert Edwards, serving time at the
Minnesota Correctional Institution in
St. Cloud for a second-degree murder
conviction, was granted permission
Thursday to have a witch visit him.
"It seems to me appropriate that the
prison treat the request for religious
services... the way that it treats
requests for religious services by
inmates who profess more orthodox
religious beliefs,
" said Richard L.
Varco, counsel to the state Department
of Corrections.
"The witch seems to perform functions
parallel to those performed by priests
and ministers,
" Varco said.
Antiga, a 54-year-old priestess of
the Covenant of the Goddess who declined
to reveal her full name, said she didn't
know when she would visit Edwards at the
prison, but that it wouldn't be today,
She said she planned a private
ceremony today, by invitation only, "for
those in the craft.
" Edwards said he
would celebrate Halloween "very
