I feel it is safe to say that many of the most important sagas and tales of Norse Cosmology revolve around Loki in one fashion or another. And I also feel it is very safe to say there are few in the world today that have not heard of Loki thanks to Marvel Comics and Tom Huddleston. However, as Loki is now being held up as the tragic hero, redeemed trickster, or heir apparent to the Marvel Universe Throne of approval his paramour, Angrboða is held as the epitome of evil by some and the mother of monsters by most. But I question: is that a fair assessment of the giantess? Loki and Angrboða had three offspring. I hesitate to say "children," because only one was a humanoid (more on ...

In my Wiccan culture, greetings often include a hug or even a kiss. But, with COVID-19 even blowing kisses and handshakes are often out of the question. In business culture, the elbow bump has arisen as the only thing sillier than "finger guns" to use to salute your friends and colleagues. Instead of resorting to awkward air hugs, let's resurrect some of the most ancient hand signals and gestures used between magical people.

Having just completed my third book on the Celtic Tree Ogham, I am thrilled that it will be out in November for you. It is titled Celtic Tree Ogham: Rituals and Teachings of the Aicme Ailim Vowels and the Forfeda. In this book I explore the last five ogham of the Aicme Ailim that make up the vowels and the last five ogham of the full twenty-five Ogham alphabet. These lase five were added later to the alphabet to accommodate Greek and Latin and are known as the Crane Bag gifted from the Sea God Manannán to add extra wisdom to the teachings. As always when I write about the tree's wisdom, I tune right into the tree spirits known as the dryads and feel close to the wisdom of nature. ...
