Paganism

The symbols shown here are a selection: there is no one symbol shared by all, just as we have no dogma. From top to bottom they are:

  • the Pentacle, from Witchcraft and Magic, pregnant with meaning
  • the Druidic Awen, or divine inspiration
  • Egyptian Ankh, symbol of life
  • Norse protective Algiz rune
  • the quartered circle, or encircled cross, which has meaning for diverse traditions.

All of these are encompassed by the New Moon, symbol of new beginnings.

We believe everyone has their own spiritual path to follow. Paganism is a name for those paths which are rooted in the Earth, born of the Stars, welling up from the Sacred Land. We have in common a respect for all life, honour various Goddesses and Gods, and recognise that spirit pervades the material world.

Paganism is very ethical, espousing freedom AND full responsibility for the consequences of our actions. We celebrate the Wheel of the Year, commonly marked by the festivals of Samhain (Hallowe’en), Yuletide, Imbolc, Spring Equinox, Beltane, Midsummer, Lammas and Autumn Equinox.

Pagan paths include Witchcraft, Wicca, Druidry, Northern Traditions, Egyptian, Shamanism, and elements of Hermeticism and Ceremonial Magic.
