Joining local pagan groups

I wanted to share a few resources that might help you find groups you can join or events you can attend in your local areas:

witchvox01

Witchvox.com– This site provides groups and individuals a platform to post groups and/or events. You can look up by state to see what is in your area.

To find someplace local, look to the Left Side of the web site Home page and look under ‘YOUR town…” Once you’re on the next page, continue to look a the Left Side of the page to look up group specific to type. You can find teen, adult, college, etc.

CUUPSCUUPS (Covenant Unitarian Universalist Pagans) is affiliated with the UU churches. You can search for groups in your area, or check with your local UU church to see if you can form your own group. You can also look up chapters by the area you live in. Some groups provide ‘open circles’, so you can join a workshop or ritual without being a member.

meetupMeetup.com– This is not specific to pagan, but you can find pagan/wiccan/witch groups. Membership is free, but being an organizer costs $20 per month. Some groups also ask for membership fees, while others are free. You can search your local area for meetup groups specific to your interest such as ghost hunting, pagan, healing, or start your own group.

When I started my own groups, it was because, at the time, there were no local groups established. The Internet certainly helps now. If you can’t find any local groups, start your own, or consider joining groups through Facebook or Twitter.

Friday Fun: Making magical boxes

50595195785907942_CrbwlrOZ_c

I saw this on Pinterest and just fell in the love with the idea of making my own box. I haven’t decided yet, however, what box to start with. The craft stores have wooden and paper mache boxes you can easily use the same technique.

I also liked the idea of using Textured Paintable Wallpaper for décor. Also, imagine using various colors and even mica powders to the project.

This could be a box used for;

– Storing your magical tools such as athame, candles, or  incense.

– Storing your divination tools such as runes or tarot cards.

– Storing potions, herbs, or stones.

The possibilities are endless.

Magickal Pinterest Boards

I admit it; I’m a Pinterest addict. Its fun and interesting to peruse the ‘boards’ of pinned topics such as crafts, recipes, and funny things. On this site, I’ve also discovered some very cool ‘pins’ concerning magick and pagan topics as well.

A Woman’s Healing Herbs- includes a number of herbs for women issues during that time of the month.

 

I like this Wheel of the Year chart because it includes not just the cardinal points, but mentions astrological information as well as bits of information on that time of the year. Very good to print and add to a Book of Shadows.

The Samhain Veil is another potential Book of Shadows page that can be added that explains how the pagan new year recognizes when the Veil between the mortal and ‘other’ realm is thinnest. I might design my own in a better font (readable for old lady eyes like mine), but thought someone might appreciate the artwork on this page.

 

And lastly, a useful tip on the topic of ‘earthing’ and how we ground the energy we carry inside us, to touch Mother Earth, and connect with her.
