at the Pub: Archetypically Australian
venues for Pagan interaction and a schooner or two of Cooper's Old
Awareness Network: A very together Sydney-based Pagan organization
enchanting Sydney's Western Suburbs (which need it, believe me)
with open full moon Circles and other magical events.
Australis: Another particularly useful Pagan information site,
this one includes a substantial collection of relevant media reports.
Magick Happens: The home page for an
ongoing series of Witchy Fairs, thus far held in both Sydney and Melbourne but likely to burst across international boundaries ere long. Any organisation that can get the Craft into Sydney Town Hall is doing pretty nicely in our books.
Pagan Alliance - Australia:
It's got an nice Trekkie sort of sound to it to, dunnit? In any case, the PA is one of the oomphiest of Oz Pagan-ish Organisations and their hard copy Pagan Times
magazine's well worth the price of admission in itself.
Calendar of Events
- Ashley's wonderful Calendar of Events, Groups, Teaching, Newsletters,
People etc for Seattle Area and elsewhere on the planet - really,
wherever you go, there you are (as Buckaroo Bonsai would say).
OLOTEAS - Monthly rituals
on the third Saturday of the month, hosted by Our Lady of the
Earth and Sky
CoG - Monthly rituals and socials hosted by Great Cats of
the Serengeti & NW CoG.
Eye - A Zine of Feri Uprising:
Witch Eye is an occasional paper zine full of art, lore @ discussion
inspired and/or informed by the Feri/Faery/Faerie tradition of
witchcraft, meaning various permutations of the tradition passed
down by Victor @ Cora Anderson.
Egg: Just the most influential
and widely read Pagan magazine on the planet.
Toons on the Net: The print version of Shadowplay didn't ever
have a regular cartoon strip. This page showcases the work of
the people we should have put on the payroll.
Voice: We could have gotten away with making this the only
Wiccan link on the page, since WV has more links per megabyte
than any comparable place on the web. Allow yourself masses of
time for this un.
- An excellent leaping-off point for information on the results
of the head-on collision of Gardnerian Witchcraft and the North
No frills presentation but who gives slippery slap when there's
so much genuinely substantial reading? Take a large picnic lunch
and spend the whole day here.
This is Grimoire Central. Lemegeton, The Key of Solomon, Giordano
Bruno's Greatest Hits and a vast array of other early magical
writings online for your enjoyment, edification and illumination.
Probably the grandest esoteric archive online - with the added
merit of being utterly free of anything purporting to be the 'real
Necronomicon'. If you can just find a program to format the text
into several shelves full of ancient, leather-bound vellum tomes,
you'll be in business. In the immortal words of the great occultist,
Cole Porter (Shadowplay in-joke): "It's Dee-lightful, it's Dee-licious,
it's Dee-lovely, etc."
Witches League for Public Awareness:
The WLPA is a non-profit organization dedicated to dispelling all of the misinformation about Witchcraft put out in the media. We work with the media, government agencies,
schools, etc, to bring about awareness of Witchcraft/Wicca as a religion, with all of the legal protection entitiled to religions in the US and abroad.
Circle of Salgion, Church of Wicca, Inc:
The Circle of Salgion is legal church (state and federally recognized) that has been serving the community since 1996. The Salgion tradition began in 1987 and continues to this day. Our covens are centered in the New England region of the United States, but in keeping with our motto of 'Weaving the web of community.' we have networked with groups and individuals around the world.
Mythica: Possibly the best reference
book you'll never need shelf space for.
Tarot Page: Totally ace Tarot site.
You'll be decked by how much she deals with. Shuffle on over.
Valley Tarot: Suitable for Pagan Yuppies (Puppies?). Be very
Postman: The artist behind the astonishingly brilliant Cosmic
Tribe Tarot. All 78 (well, 80 actually) cards shown on the site
but, be warned, one rummage through the deck and you'll probably
feel compelled to buy a copy. Best Tarot deck ever? Well, definitely
it's in the top ten.
Main Menu: The Astrology Center of America's Tarot deck review
page. Masses of illustration so you don't have to take the reviewers'
word for anything. A great help in choosing a new deck.
Official Froud Faeries Website: Brian
and Wendy Froud, the Unseelie Court Portraitists.
Horne: One of Australia's most prominent ultra-multimedia, pop
techno rock chick witches ever to have written two bestsellers.
And certainly the only one ever to have sung about both union with
Shiva and feminine hygiene products.
Rule: A Melbourne-based, overtly Witchy and altogether spellbinding
singer and songwriter. Virtually unclassifiable talent - which is
generally the best sort.
Mediaeval Baebes / Miranda
Sex Garden: AKA the indecently talented Katharine Blake and
divers associates. On the menu: angelic harmonies; industrial grunge;
Latin sung hymns; metal psychosis; madgigals, sacred and cheerfully
profane; barrages of horror movie soundtrack spookiness; almost
lethal doses of nubile pulchritude; occasional collaborations with
John Cale, the Erotic Print Society, Nick Cave and Ken Russell;
and covers of songs from Eraserhead and The Wickerman.
Music to delight and (now and then) very seriously alarm.
Anton Wilson: Invariably an illuminating experience.
Valiente Tribute and Archive
- A very delightful tribute to the invaluable Ms Valiente. Not to
Side of the Net: The departure
lounge of the undead. This is not only the best link sites for
Goth culture but one of the best link sites - period. None more
Gardening: No, really.
Old Hippie's Groovy Site: If
you can remember the 60's, you probably weren't there but only
read about it on this site. More links than you could poke a daisy
and Nakedness: Less existentialist
than it sounds and assuredly the best link site for those who
don't believe in limiting the skyclad look to the Circle. It occurs
to us that Wiccans and Pagans are about the only culture imaginable
(sociologists aside) who might be equally interested in this site
and the Gothy Stuff.
Loxie and Zoot - Formerly
known as Nood Toons - which says it all. Sydneysider Stephen Crowley
(no relation to Al or Viv as far as we know) sets new standards
for alternative propagandists everywhere. And you have to like someone who's copyright notice reads: 'Artwork
and text may be downloaded or hardcopied for your personal use.
Further reproduction, especially for profit, would be rather unnice
don't you reckon?' Now with naturist pixies.
World Domination HQ
- The gloves are off (along with everything else presumably).
Barking. Like it.
The primo site for, amongst other things, Pagan underwear. Just
thought you should know.
Stitches: Witchy cross-stitch patterns. Try to avoid pricking
of Misheard Lyrics: For those who
related to Whoopie Goldberg trying to decipher Jagger-ese in Jumping
Jack Flash, this is utterly compulsive reading.
A Grave: Morbid? Not a bit. Well, all right, just a tiny bit.
But strangely compelling.
Does Your Phone Number Spell?: One of the few truly educational
web sites, this one taught me my telephone number - no mean feat
for someone who vagues out at three digits.
Pagan Name Generator:
I believe there's a rumour going around that some Llewellyn authors
don't use this site before bursting into print. Doubt it strenuously
Excuse Not To' Sites
Hunger Site: One of the few sites
you really need to stop by once every 24 hours. The only negative
thing about this site is what an utter git you feel if you miss
Rainforest Site: Same drill, different life form. Probably worth
owning a computer for.

Watch this space. (Well, not constantly, obviously, or you'll get really, really bored. Watching clouds, fireworks, kittens or Tim Burton films are all much more fun.)
