Hi, thanks for the question! There are no dietary requirements for being pagan or a witch. Some parts of being a Wiccan initiate are very secret, but I have Initiated Wiccan friends and they always eat the same kind of foods as me and I haven’t any particular restrictions. I can understand why you ask though, many religions do have dietary rules, for Jewish folks they keep Kosher, and there are some meats Hindus aren’t supposed to eat, Muslims keep Hallal, and Catholics don’t eat meat on Friday. Some pagans make specific vows not to eat certain things as a devotional act. If you want to be vegetarian or vegan and be a pagan and/or witch you can, though certain gods of hunting, milk or honey might not suit a vegan or vegetarian in their devotions.

Hope this helps! :D
New Fairy Witchcraft Book coming out next month that I pre-ordered for my kindle (only $2.99). Morgan Daimler really knows her stuff, and I am sure this will be an excellent book.
Shauna Aura Knight recently made a post about creating your own tarot cards using collage. It’s an intriguing idea, and her methodology is useful as a way of doing some deep work with Tarot that nonetheless allows you to create a personal connection with a given card through not only the act of creation, but also meaningful pathworking done with the collage to get at the heart of the meaning of the Tarot card - See more at:http://www.magicalexperiments.com/collage-tarot-cards-as-enchantment-workings/
I expect to see lots of collaged tarot cards on my dash this coming week!!!
An ongoing project with detailed historical information about the more obscure Goddesses: this page is the main index. Articles by Thalia Took.
This is for my followers/readers who are researching deities. This is a list of lesser-known goddesses. The creator of the website did her own research because she was “sick of […] finding a single sentence from Wikipedia cut-and-pasted all over the interweb”. If you’re looking for a goddess that calls to you, don’t forget about these background-ish deities!
I’m getting all sorts of inspiration from this website to create my own religion!
I got into a discussion earlier today about transgender people that left my head spinning, and reminded me that some people can’t tolerate being questioned on the slightest particular of their beliefs. The individual in pink’s comments struck me as very odd. Is it just me?
-stare of scrutiny- As someone who once had similar opinions, maybe she’s just… not informed on the intricacies of gender enough? Which makes me wonder, since she has ‘tons’ o friends who identify this way and I had.. one. One who immediately corrected the thing that I’d said wrong.
I don’t know, I had several trans friends, who told me it wrong according to tumblr standards. Not every trans person is an expert on what terms are the most correct either. I wouldn’t get defensive if corrected, like this girl did, but I don’t blame her for it either. She is a kind open minded person, she just is using language that her inquirer thinks is incorrect. Well it probably is, and she probably didn’t get straight As in high school too because she didn’t get everything right in class all the time either. Not all people can get all these intricacies. But what is important is in their heart, and this girl clearly wants people to be able to be who they want to be and love who they want to love. It would be nice if the language was standardized and if no trans folks used language that is considered hate speech by many other trans folks about themselves.
Similarly, I have been variously told by gay men that they prefer a phrase about themselves that a dozen others tell me is hate speech. It would be hard for a person who isn’t educated in this to be accurate all the time. And even if you try to be educated about it, you can learn totally wrong. I don’t expect that to change or anything. I just am saying I can relate to her difficulty. I believe I have handled it well by just avoiding using any phrase that anyone doesn’t like.
Your welcome! I love having free books too, I must admit I have a book problem! I was spending way too much money on books. Now I spend a lot less and still have more books than I could ever need :)
