ROYCE3:Royce3> As you people know, Beverly Hill is supposed to be with us
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> where is she??
ROYCE3:Royce3> She said she might be a bit late.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Traffic and all.

JEFFLOVE999:jefflove> hello
ROYCE3:Royce3> Hello Jeff, welcome.
DORCASQ> We will put you on our prayer list, Sat, for good material.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Until Beverly arrives, lets talk about the prayer list.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> huh?
ROYCE3:Royce3> I think we are pretty much agreed that there should be one.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> hi jeff

that may be a record.
KOLTA:Kolta> Wow!
DORCASQ> Yes, from 1 cent to a quarter
ROYCE3:Royce3> 26, if we count Jeff's ICQ note.
JEFFLOVE999:jefflove> will we have a prayer before each chat?
ROYCE3:Royce3> I'm of the opinion that we should list people for the prayer
list each week, then delete the names after six days.
** SUNSHINE4ALL just joined "Ufotalk-Time" (6 members now) **
ROYCE3:Royce3> Hi sunshine, welcome.
KOLTA:Kolta> That is a good idea Royce

DORCASQ> You are a good booter, Sat.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Dorcasq, who would you like to put on the prayer list?

JEFFLOVE999:jefflove> no
KOLTA:Kolta> - signed off -
ROYCE3:Royce3> Well, we are underway with the list. That's good.
** KOLTA:Kolta just joined "Ufotalk-Time" (5 members now) **
ROYCE3:Royce3> I'm not quite sure what to say about Beverly. I think she is
now, officially, late.
DORCASQ> Kolta, did you go check out the UFO with sunshine?
KOLTA:Kolta> I remembered the umbrella
ROYCE3:Royce3> Since Beverly isn't here, I guess we can focus on anything we
DORCASQ> No one to put on the list, Kolta?
KOLTA:Kolta> Not at the moment
ROYCE3:Royce3> Oh, animals may be put on the list, too.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> -pray for Doxie
ROYCE3:Royce3> They, too, are Gods creatures.
KOLTA:Kolta> Then, Kaila, Gary's dog
ROYCE3:Royce3> Very good.
ROYCE3:Royce3> How is Kaila?
ROYCE3:Royce3> She is a nice dog.
KOLTA:Kolta> She has a limp from time to time. We see the vet tomorrow
KOLTA:Kolta> She is a wonderful dog
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> scrye> we could give our naive impressions of Wicca,
so Bev can see where we are starting from
ROYCE3:Royce3> Would anyone like to open a conversation concerning Wicca?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> it is an earth religion (emily)
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> emily is my 18 year old daughter
ROYCE3:Royce3> I do know it is a growing religion/philosophy. Some military
bases have Wicca groups.
DORCASQ> I don't know much about it.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Recently, George Bush was critical of military commanders that
allowed Wicca practices on their bases.
KOLTA:Kolta> I have a Wicca tarot deck and it leaves things out that have
aything to do with orthodox religion
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> they don't believe there is white or black magic
ROYCE3:Royce3> Clearly, he had little knowledge of Wicca.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> and ye harm none, do as thou will
ROYCE3:Royce3> As I understand it, most Wicca groups are relatively
autonomous and small. However, there are a lot of groups around the country.
DORCASQ> Do they have a leader?
ROYCE3:Royce3> I don't think there is any sort of a national leader, Dorcasq.
ROYCE3:Royce3> And many of the groups make up their own protocols.
ROYCE3:Royce3> It's a Goddess oriented religion.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> there is no universal leader of Wicca - scrye
ROYCE3:Royce3> One of the good magazines dedicated to Wicca was the Green
Egg, or so I have been told.
KOLTA:Kolta> Can you call it a religion?
ROYCE3:Royce3> Has anyone read that publication?
ROYCE3:Royce3> Yes, Kolta, I think it is a religion.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scyre> Wicca is called the Old Religion they believe
in God and Goddess
KOLTA:Kolta> Thanks
ROYCE3:Royce3> Scrye, do you have any idea of the total numbers here in the
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> no.
DORCASQ> Gee, I hope Pnerissa gets here soon.
ROYCE3:Royce3> I do know that they are oriented toward attending a lot of
conferences. In fact, according to some, the conferences are tending to
detract from individual covens.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Well, Dorcasq, I am not real optimistic.
ROYCE3:Royce3> It seems that the conferences are the sum total of the
activity for some pagans.
** PNERISSA just joined "Ufotalk-Time" (6 members now) **
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> I hope Beverly will correct our
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Did I hear my name?
DORCASQ> I got what I wished for!
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> and we didn't even pray for you!
ROYCE3:Royce3> Yes, we were afraid you might not be able to make it. Welcome.
ROYCE3:Royce3> I hope you didn't have to speed to get through the rush hour
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Well, I made it. Even through rush hour traffic. How late
am I?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I took the back way. : )
ROYCE3:Royce3> It doesn't matter; you are here now.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> Don't even ask!
ROYCE3:Royce3> How long have you been involved with Wicca?
ROYCE3:Royce3> And what sparked your interest?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> 6 going on 7 years.ROYCE3:Royce3> You are an experienced
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I found the path after my mother died back
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I like to think I am experienced. I found it while
searching for answers
ROYCE3:Royce3> yes?
ROYCE3:Royce3> Who introduced you to Wicca?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> give me a minute...I'm distracted since I just walked in
the door.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Take your time.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I basically found it myself while researching auras and
spirit guides
DORCASQ> Do you consider it a religion?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> then it naturally led to the rest (naturally for me anyway)
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I kinda consider it a religion, but to me (it's different
for everyone), I respect it.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Do you now have your own coven?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> It's not my coven, but yes, I belong to one.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> are you a solitary practicioner?
ROYCE3:Royce3> How did you come to join the coven?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I sometimes feel a little apart from them, because they
view it as a religion and they honor the goddess and the god. To me
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> my sense of the higher power is Mother Earth...and I
substitute her as a goddess
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> when I moved, I lucked out and found a coven here
ROYCE3:Royce3> How many are your present coven?
ROYCE3:Royce3> And how did you find them?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> sometimes I practice as a solitary just because it's more
personal that way
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I found them via the world wide web. : )
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> About 9 members in the present coven
KOLTA:Kolta> is Wicca closely associated with Nature?
DORCASQ> What do you do when you "practice"?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> is there a _perfect_ number for a coven?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> It is different for different people, but I honor the
goddess (Gaia) and then if there is a need, sometimes I will perform spells
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Yes, at least my path of Wicca. I walk very closely to
ROYCE3:Royce3> How often does the coven meet?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> are Wiccans related to the Druids in any way?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> No, I don't think there is a perfect number for a coven,
but I do believe there is such a thing as having too many people in a coven
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> It depends on the path. There are many different paths to
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> There are druidic/wiccans
DORCASQ> Can you tell us about your experiences in casting spells?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Coven meetings vary from group to group, but most usually
meet once every full moon or at least on the 8 major sabbats
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Yes Dorcasq, but give me a second. Someone is messaging me
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I generally only cast positive spells, mostly healings or
for positive change.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> For example, using a release spell to rid myself of
negative things from my past
DORCASQ> Have you had good results?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Yes. I have been careful. I think some people go off
ROYCE3:Royce3> Do you spend a lot of your time doing healings?
KOLTA:Kolta> I was told that spells need the appropriate energies to work.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> You have to remember in magick to not do things for
selfish reasons
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Yes, spells need proper focus.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> And yes, I guess I have done a lot of healing magick
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> give me a second...I'll brb
ROYCE3:Royce3> This is all very interesting.
ROYCE3:Royce3> We will have a good log.
KOLTA:Kolta> She is also beig bombarded with questions. She could use more
time to aswer them
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> hahah..bombarded and I am talking to a special someone I
haven't heard from in a while. : )
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> She seems to be answering them all.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> next question
ROYCE3:Royce3> How does your family feel about your being a witch?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> Does your coven believe there is black magic?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> my family is very supportive and they often stick up for
me. No my coven does not believe in the black arts
KOLTA:Kolta> - signed off -
ROYCE3:Royce3> Where do you hold your meetings?
** KOLTA:Kolta just joined "Ufotalk-Time" (6 members now) **
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> At one of the other member's house. Once I'm in my house I
will volunteer my place as well
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> brb
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> next question...I'm trying to juggle quickly here. ; )
ROYCE3:Royce3> Do any of your family members participate in these activities?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> is everyone in your coven strictly anonymous? (scrye)
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> no, but my brother-in-law is expressing interest
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> not all of them are anonymous. I'm not.
KOLTA:Kolta> How can there be too many in a coven?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> too many different personalities that don't mesh well
ROYCE3:Royce3> Can anyone who wants to attend your meetings?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Yes, we allow people to attend... usually not for the
main rituals until we get to know them better
ROYCE3:Royce3> What's the ratio of women to men?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I think the ratio is pretty equal...not that we planned
it. Just how it worked out
DORCASQ> Do you have to go through special training, or can anyone who wants
to call themselves a practictioner?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye? I had to break a circle at a ceremony once. I
felt bad about it. is there a right to do this?
DORCASQ> I hesitate to use the word witch, or is that OK?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> a right way to do this i mean?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> well, we try to help people catch up to where we are. We
are patient and try to ease them in. You can't rush training
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> witch is fine
ROYCE3:Royce3> I don't understand what you mean, Scrye, by breaking a circle.
** SIDSA just joined "Ufotalk-Time" (7 members now) **
SIDSA:Sidsa> hi every one
ROYCE3:Royce3> Hi sida, we are talking about witches and covens.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Everyone had formed a sacred circle and we were
supposed to stay until the end, but I had to leave. -- SCRYE
ROYCE3:Royce3> Pnerissa is a witch, so we are listening and asking questions.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I understand what he meant. Usually, it is not a good idea
to break the "energy" of a circle.
SIDSA:Sidsa> oh wrong room i guess
SIDSA:Sidsa> - signed off -
ROYCE3:Royce3> Is your coven linked to other covens?
ROYCE3:Royce3> Is there some sort of federation?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> hahah..Pnerissa the witch... although I do lean more
toward what I consider a nature path. I just happen to cast spells
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> No, we're not linked to any at this time.
DORCASQ> - signed off -
ROYCE3:Royce3> Does your group attend conferences--retreats?
** DORCASQ just joined "Ufotalk-Time" (6 members now) **
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> Aren't there loose confederations?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I hope I'm getting everyone's questions. I feel so rushed.
DORCASQ> That is the VERY FIRST TIME I ever got bumped, I'm serious.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Yes, we attend them sometimes as budgets allow. : )
KOLTA:Kolta> What happens if a circle is broken?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> loose confederations... I believe so if I understand your
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Seriously charmed. DORCASQ.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> It usually is not a big deal if a circle is broken. It's
mostly protocol.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> I mean this: Witches are great people!
ROYCE3:Royce3> Has your group ever been threatened by witch haters?
DORCASQ> Some people are great witches!
ROYCE3:Royce3> Are you ever afraid?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> No...I don't think anyone in my group has been threatened
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> afraid how?
ROYCE3:Royce3> Well, I have read that some people have been all but run out
of town on a rail for being witches.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> I am not afraid of using magick because I know I am only
using it for the positive.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Born again Christians are often very upset by Wicca.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> That is true. I'm not afraid. I hope that legalities will
protect me.
ROYCE3:Royce3> What is the average age of the people in your coven?
KOLTA:Kolta> It does not take much to upset born again Christians
ROYCE3:Royce3> Very true, Kolta.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> some born again christians. Most are open-minded.
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> ages in our group range from 16 to around 50
KOLTA:Kolta> Quite a range!!!!!
ROYCE3:Royce3> Do you have any special robes or clothing for the practice?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> It is. The younger ones belong to parents of our group.
But they are there by their own choice
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Our group has robes, but really it doesn't matter.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Are there any publications that your coven reads regularly?
There used to be one called the Green Egg.
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> SCRYE> I think that the preferred cloting for some
rituals is NONE, ROYCE. Nerissa?
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> We all read a lot of the books that I listed in my book
list on the website here
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> correct Sat, but it's a matter of choice.
ROYCE3:Royce3> Do you folks make up your own rituals?
** JOASHA just joined "Ufotalk-Time" (7 members now) **
ROYCE3:Royce3> Hi Joasha, welcome. We are talking about Wicca.
JOASHA:Joasha> heyla, at least I can say hi

JOASHA:Joasha> <grin>
ROYCE3:Royce3> Pnerissa, about your rituals?
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> Scrye> I want to take this opportunity to say that all
spelling errors were Sat's.
JOASHA:Joasha> hehehe
PNERISSA:Pnerissa> Yes, you can make up your own rituals
ROYCE3:Royce3> A likely story<smile>

Baptist. heheh.. I don't know about the majority of the others
SATELLITE8:Satellite8> scrye has entranced my dog
ROYCE3:Royce3> Someone suggested there were a lot of former Catholics.
ROYCE3:Royce3> I hope the dog has its clothes on????

in several religions.
