Buzz Coil: September

Happy Equinox all! As Summer ends in the Northern Hemisphere, perhaps in deference to the crickets’ leg-rubbing song, we should call this month's buzzing, chirping:

Radical Goddess Thealogy: Blogger Athana gives us a three-part series on Sept 15 and 16: "Want Utopia, Get the Goddess,"summarizing her weblog’s outlook:
Part I presents evidence, some of it science-based, pointing to a "causal relationship" between Goddess and "utopian" societies.
Part II discusses modern Goddess societies, plus backlash and counter-backlash about the "neolithic Goddess utopia."
Part III presents the "best evidence" of the relationship between Goddess-centered cultures and peaceful, egalitarian social systems.

Evoking the Goddess: In a Sept 18 post, blogger Paul tells how "Patriarchy will be the end of us all" as he connects the dots that lead from insufficient honouring of women and "the Mother" to current environmental catastrophes, rape, abuse of women, and other violence.

Pagan Godspell: Sara Sutterfield Winn continues her series with "Pagan Inquisition Part 4: Ritual" in an Aug. 29 post in which she explores ritual basics, and the role of "stories," healing, and possible dangers.

Branches Up, Roots Down: In her Sept 10 post, "a moral compass," Deborah Oak shares her thoughts on spiritual authority, ethics, and community from the perspective of a Reclaiming Feri Witch.

Doire Musings: In a Sept 1 post,"Dark Night of the Soul?" blogger mdiv94 questions the interpretation of some RC clergy that Mother Teresa’s "50 years of spiritual desert, absence of faith," somehow is further evidence of the presence of God in the nun's life, and of her sanctity.

Mother of Willows: In a Sept. 20 post, "Why Kuan Yin?" Peter Schogol tries to answer his own question:"Why do I return to Kuan Yin even when I’m not sure if she is a just a figment of my imagination?"

Hecate: In a Sept. 12 post, "We Shall Overcome, Someday," blogger Hecate tells of a magical working a few blocks from the U. S. Capitol on Sept. 11's Dark Moon, in preparation for the next weekend’s march to end the Iraq War.

Raihndrops: On Sept. 19, Blogger Lisa in Australia writes about "10.02 p.m. - Blessed Ostara."

The Wild Hunt: Jason Pitzl-Waters' Sept. 23 post, "Happy Autumnal Equinox" explains various observances of this holiday. His Sept. 15 post , "Susan Sarandon Out of Broom Closet?,"speculates about whether Sarandon is Wiccan? Pagan? "Goddess worshipper"?

At Brigid’s Forge: Lunaea Weatherstone writes about making Goddess rosaries in her Sept 9 post ,"Autumn Rosary Update Number One." With one pic and links to others.
