In the ancient world, Oracular Priestesses were given different titles depending on the oracle temples they served, and the geographical location they served in. The most famous of these Oracles was the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi. The Delphic Priestesses were known as “Pythia” or “Pythoness” referring to the sacred serpent who was said to have lived in the cave nearby at the founding of the temple in the days before the Sun God Apollo overtook the Delphic Oracle, usurping it from the Python Goddess.

A priestess of Aphrodite was known as a “Melissa”, and their totem was the Bee. Their primary function had to do with fertility magic and also in the participation of sexual congress with men who came to the temple and paid for their services as a form of...

In 1962 a notable discovery was made at Baia in Southern Italy by a budding rebel archeologist named Robert Paget. Robert Paget was an American Naval officer who retired in Baia Italy in 1958. He took up archeology as a hobby. Paget partnered up with another man by the name of Keith Jones, who took an equally obsessive interest in ancient antiquities, and together the two of them set out on a quest to search for an ancient wonder. They set out to search for the entrance of the underworld, thought by orthodox scholars simply not to exist. Like Troy however which was equally laughed out of orthodox circles at first , the entrance to the underworld was found in 1962. But it never made the press. It's discovery remained a very little known fact for several years afterwards.

Astrology: Surviving Mercury Retrograde

astrology Jul 27, 2017

What exactly is a retrograde planet?   A planet is said to be in retrograde motion when it slows down in its orbit enough, that other planets are passing it by as they orbit.  It would be like you driving in the slow lane while other cars are passing you, "driving so fast it makes you look like you are in reverse".    This gives an illusion that a retrograde planet is moving backward for a short period of time.

If you've been around the block a few times then sadly, you know about the "witch wars".  Just recently I stopped by the Witchvox web site, only to discover, to my amazement, that the conversation thread they had started running TEN freaking years ago, about "witch wars" is still going strong.   I think we should spend our time on things that are so much more productive then this, which is why this will be the ONLY blog post I ever bring this up.   I once heard another priestess say to her students that "you are not a real witch until you've been blooded in a witch war".  I thought to myself, for my part, you are not a real witch until you can stay the hell out of one.  So here are five excellent items for  your consideration about this pet peeve of a topic of mine.  Ready?...
