    Being that I am a Welsh Traditionalists Wytch, I am often questioned about what Deities we worship. So I will try to do a hub page for each of the major Welsh Gods and Goddesses and possibly a general listing of all of...

Dear cjcs,

Well my friend... it could very well mean that you have a broom hidden somewhere in your closet that you don't use for cleaning! LOL!

Raven, I am a new fan. I celebrated 'new years' with a New York coven a few years back. Please provide some links to some helpful pagan sites for my info and for others who find this hub. Use a link capsule. Cheers, Sligobay

I could see myself in some of these, especially having a conversation with my cats, although sometimes they don't deign to reply (you knw what cats are!). Have always thought the Sacred Feminine was much maligned. Great to hear there are some free spirits still out there. There also has to have been dragons around - they appear in every ancient culture so they must exisit. And although I do see unicorns I know that I no longer see their horns as I have two kids. I point them out to my boys though!

Blessed Be! I needed that laugh. And to 22 I would add "and unicorns because you served Lancelot ice cream when you were a maiden". How about... You already knew "The Secret" before there was a movie about it. You know what "drawing down the moon" means. The book "Modern Pagans" bares a striking resemblance to your personal photo album. You know what an athame and a challis represent and it turns you on. Because you describe females to your coven-mates as maiden, mother, or crone. You know what "skyclad" means because that's what you had on last time you cast a circle. You know the difference between an equinox and a solstice. You know what your sun, moon, and rising sign are and you have several synastry charts in your Book of Shadows. You know when Candlemas and Lammas are and what foods to serve. You refer to your culinary skills as alchemy. You know what "moon void of course" and "mercury retrograde" mean because you mark them in your calendar and plan accordingly. Thanxoxox ;-)

I had a hard time not laughing durring class when I read them. I have read the mists of avalon, and own the craft, so I can relate to them more than I would like to admit.
