This is part 3 of a post about my own practice of Slavic polytheism. Here, we get into the nitty-gritty of how I set up my shrine, how I do my daily devotional, what I do with my offerings, and the like. At the moment, half my things are in hibernation for the summer, so […]Read more "Slavic Polytheism, Part 3: Spirits and Praxis"
This is part 2 of my series on my personal Rodnovery (Slavic paganism, Slavic polytheism, Slavic native faith) practice and my relationship with the Slavic gods. For part 1, see here. For my earlier post about ways to delve deeper into Slavic mythology, see here. In part 2, I will share more of my notes […]Read more "Slavic Polytheism, Part 2: A Wider Pantheon"

So I thought now would be an appropriate time to talk about two cards that I associate with […]Read more "The Empress and the Tower"
I’ve written a couple of times before about the devotional work I do with Tarot. One thing I haven’t much discussed, though, is the notion of myth-making as it factors into my personal Tarot practice. Religion involves myth. Before we have theology (and arguably before we have praxis) we have stories, which structure the things […]Read more "A Tarot Fairy Tale"
I miss Tarot. That’s a bit of a weird thing to say, considering that I’m a Tarot reader and a regular Tarot blogger. I have more Tarot decks than any reasonable person should (yet still, I covet more). It’s not like I have a dearth of Tarot in my life. But this summer, my Tarot […]Read more "Rediscovering Tarot"
