30 Days of Paganism

I had forgotten that this meme even existed, but now that I remember it, I also remember wanting to do it back when it first went around. Of course, back then I didn’t know as much about myself as I do now, so the timing is rather appropriate.

My only modification is the list of Pantheon members. I don’t have a true pantheon, with a family of related deities (supposedly) belonging to a single culture. Like my heritage and history, I have a mix of beings I recognize and honor, a “personal pantheon” if you will. If you kept up with my blog here, you’ve already met 3 that occupy a special place in my customs: Grandmother Spider, Miraculous Doe and Turul. Since they already have their posts, I’ll only refer to them and focus on other people instead.

21. Other paths I’ve explored
22. Paganism and major life events
23. Ethics
24. Personal aesthetics with magic and ritual
25. Priest? Clergy? One or both? Neither?
26. Any “secular” pastimes with religious significance, and why
27. How your faith has helped you in difficult times
28. One misconception about Paganism you’d like to clear up
29. The future of Paganism
30. Places of spiritual significance

Some of these will more difficult to address than others though, since this meme came from a Neopagan perspective. But still good fodder for conversation nonetheless. I most likely will be taking more than 30 days to complete this meme, as much as I would like to complete it in a month. Reality likes to poke its nose into my business sometimes.
