I googled for pagan forums, and this one came up. Then I started reading articles and stuff, and decided I liked the place.  Grin

Hello!

I'm a woman of 32, married with two kids, who started wandering the woods at an early age. I was looking for faeries, I think, but I never saw anything. I've studied astrology for the last 20 years, and am currently skittishly/proudly (depending on circumstance) able to call it my source of income (ok, not so much income as a source of reduced taxes for the family...). I got a Christian confirmation, but was back in the woods after a week or so.

I have a degree in IT (Norwegian Cand.Scient = 5 years univ.), and I found Starhawks 'Spiral Dance' at the library when I was 19. I've taken a beginners course with a local wiccan coven (mix of Alexandrian and Gardnerian, I think), circled with a few friends for some years, and mainly been a solitary for the last decade.

I'm an armchair qabalist and tarotist, both approached from the astrological angle, learning the former from Ellen Cannon Reeds 'The Witches' Qabala', and the latter partly from books and mostly from experience.

I usually focus on norse and hellenic deities, my main problem is getting off my butt and doing something.  Cheesy

Welcome to the forum.  Figures somebody from Norway would show up just after I threw away my Norge-English dictionary.

Where in Norway?

OK. I don't think I got that far south the times I've been there (not counting airport transits).

The Witches' Qabala is an excellent book -- I would recommend it to anyone interested in the Hermetic Qabala but is put over by the Christianity intertwined therein.

Thanks everyone, for the warm welcome. Just reading and being among other pagans has so far spurred a lot of thinking ("Don't ask what $DEITY can do for you, ask what you can do for $DEITY") - maybe it will end up in doing at some point too... I hope.  Wink

My wife and I are collectors of music from around the world.  We really love the Georgian polyphonic music, but also have found the Nordic music very interesting.  She has much by Hagalaz Runedance and (if I can spell it right) Djallerhorn.  Who are your favorites?

Welcome to the Cauldron, and good luck on following your path to deity.  I'm brand new here too and so cannot recommend anything specific to you, but I know the Cauldron has been around for a long time and has done a lot of good for a lot of pagans and wiccans along the way.  Be you blessed, you and yours!
