Let me introduce myself. I discovered LT about a month agoish(?) it's great for cataloging my small library, finding others with similar interests and there-by learning of interesting books I haven't read.
I consider myself Pagan with Catholic leanings. I have a love of ritual (though I haven't done any in years) Shamanism/Spirit Guides, Celtic mythology, Goddesses and so on. I have a special affinity to the Celtic god and goddess Cernunnos and Danu as well as the goddesses Inanna, Guanyin and Mary.
My main Spirit animal is Bear, she is always with me, but I have been visited in dreams by Armadillo and Bat. I'm an introverted Virgo with an extroverted Sagittarius rising. Conflicted? Mmhmm.
Would you please shut the hell up? What?! Ah ain't said nothing but the truth! Have some fun for f***sake!
So...that's me. Tell me about yourself.
Oh, one more thing. My spelling and puctuation sucks (you wouldn't believe how many times I had to look up words to get the spelling right for this post) so please forgive me ahead of time.
I am an academic-eclectic. I like to keep an open mind and I'm always learning. I have been researching Inanna, Cybele, and Athena in specific. The inspiration that they give me I use for kitchen witch activities. My chocolate chips cookies are nothing short of magick ;)
I am an Aries but on the boarder of Taurus. I dont't really see any of it in me but it must show because I have been called out on it by friends. anyway... hi!
You have a few books that look interesting.
knosha I guess I would be about a level 1 or 2. I like to take it slow because once you reach the level cap at 80 you've pretty much seen it all.
Thanks be to the Gods, also to the LT staff.
Then again, maybe the "n00b" term gave off that impression? x)
I am Ariana. We share an affinity for the same Goddess! (Though, many will argue that Innana and Danu are the same ones...) Your spirit guide sounds charming. Bears are very protective symbols (assuming that's not just her name lol) and they look fluffy enough to hug.
Welcome aboard, I'm glad you found LT. It's a lovely place to store books and keep track of them.
Inanna: Queen of Heaven and Earth is a favorite of mine.
*grabs a beer and waits for more discussion*
*returns back to her weekend, excited about the upcoming Solstice*
I will argue that while Inanna and Danu have many similarities they are not the same, though I would love to see your arguement for such.
Bear is charming and protective, I call her Bear because she is a mama bear. I believe it is a sign of respect to capitalize your spirit guide, that is why I say my spirit guide is Bear as apposed to "bear"
If I were to give her a name it would be Fulaing.
Thank you for your welcome.
I believe I see where the issue is here... Based on the continued mentioning of "arguments" ("I will argue that while Inanna and Danu..") it is clear to me that I've set off a few hot heads who's focus is to argue despite my having mentioned (and I quote) "I just remarked on an observation of what I've seen and heard."
Some people believe it, some people don't.
If you think their belief is silly... then.... that's your opinion. You. Are. Entitled. To. That.
I never said I personally believe it. But I don't disrespect or challenge the views of those who do.
In my opinion, debating something like that is like debating the bible and which "denominator" is true and what "the good book" is really saying. It's a wild goose chase and ultimately, it's just a battle of beliefs.
Arguments on "beliefs" are flawed because it can even be argued that no deity exists & that they are merely a product of electrical impulses trying to figure out the world through myths & beliefs. So what difference would it make it a deity is interpreted as another or completely different. Yahweh from the Olde Testiment seems entirely different than Yahweh from the New Testament. (for example...) yet.. some people claim they are both the same deity.
We're all entitled to our musings. No debate here.
Something tells me I'm going to have to mention that making an observation has *nothing* to do with my own personal beliefs. Need I say it again?
