We have grappled with the concept of ‘spirituality.’ In this seminar we take on the concept of ‘P/pagan.’ What does the word mean to you? How do you define or explain being Pagan, or a Pagan? Is Pagan only one of the collection of modern, mostly Western European practices and belief systems included in a list such as: Wiccan, Asatru, Druid, Heathen, and so on? Is it more complex than that? More widespread? Then, what do we, at Ardantane mean when we use it in naming a school or a class? Join Moonbeam Mage as we delve into the concept of Pagan, its root meaning, its usage and finally, its coupling with our understanding of spirituality.
Moonbeam MageAstrologer and Ardantane Faculty
Moonbeam Mage caught a glimpse of the path that might be some twenty-five years ago. Fifteen years ago she heard herself asserting that she was on that path, and has solidly placed one foot after the other upon it since. In 2010 she found Ardantane and began her pursuit of all that formal training in the Craft could offer. In 2014, she received the Ardantane Level Three, Master of Magick and Witchcraft Certificate.
In 2010, a simultaneous inspiration brought her back to the study of Astrology. After having left the skills she developed in the 1970s unhoned, a synchronistic opportunity initiated a twofold intention: to be a Witch and an Astrologer. In 2013, she completed the Kepler College Certificate in the Fundamentals of Natal Astrology and in 2014, their Certificate: Moving the Chart in Time.
In 2013, Moonbeam Mage taught her first course for Ardantane: Astrology for Pagans One. Since then she has continued to teach a series of Astrology courses for Ardantane, including Astrology for Pagans Two and Evolutionary Astrology for Pagans. She has also taught Astrology classes for various local venues, as well as other Craft related topics such as Crystal Allies and Herbal Magick.
Moonbeam Mage is a first degree initiate in the Ladywood Tradition working within her Florida community to grow the Sacred Pentacle Coven of the Ladywood Tradition.
In her mundane life, Moonbeam Mage is a Certified Interpreter for the Deaf. She has two grown children who are a constant source of pride and amazement. Her spouse of 30 plus years is the quintessential loyal Leo and the light of her life.
She received her training as an Interpreter at Gallaudet University and later received her Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Linguistics as well as her Master’s degree in Communication from the University of Maine.
