    Default What kind of pagan are you?

    I was wondering what kind of pagans you guys are.
    I'm an eclectic pagan who believes in every pantheon, but with a focus on the Norse one specifically. I'm also pretty into Hinduism and am a pretty chaotic person so I favor the more chaotic gods like Set, Loki, and Eris.

    I am not a pagan by any stretch of the imagination. I was born in the East End of London and live in the county town of Essex. I do walk in the nearby woods and commons to commune with the genius loci, but other than that I am happy in the concrete jungle.
    I would however like to know what the preoccupation is with people thinking that all crafters have to be 'Pagan' this is not aimed at any particular person but I tend to think of the likes of occultists like John Dee who I doubt was much into the pagan thing. Most occult adepts that I know shop in super markets, don't drive tractors and most live in towns. The root of 'Pagan' comes from the Latin [extract from the 'Penguin English Dictionary world history; Pagan,Middle English via late Latin 'Paganus' country dweller, civilian, from pagus country district. In Christian Latin the sense 'civilian' was applied to somebody who did not belong to the army of Christ]

    Oh yeah well to me being a pagan means taking part in any non-Abrahamic religions (that is religions involving the god of Abraham like Judism, Islam, and Christianity). Lots of people who practice magic/ the occult aren't pagan its just that lots of pagans practice magic because its not taboo.

    I'm not a pagan any longer but I was raised in the ''traditional'' celtic ways of magick and belief. I eventually became a bard but later on my vampyrism became evident and many memories came forth... and my path changed.
    Those who Fall will find their Heaven
    and will always be adored.

    I have felt lacking lately in the spiritual realm and decided that I should find a religion that suits me and immediately I felt drawn the Greek Gods. I have been doing research on various Greek mythologies and the more I read, the more I become interested.

    I like to work with them as well. They are fascinating but don't just use the 12 olympians. Use the minor gods, some of the weaker titans, various spirits and, sometimes, the "monster" of greek myth. Hermes is a good allrounder and starting point!

    Primarily Daoist mysticism/sorcery/magick and Chinese folk magick, although I do have a great interest in the Luciferian path and hoodoo. But, I suppose it all comes from more of a Chaos magickal perspective of "whatever works", so to speak. My Stregone friend says that we're all sort of "Luciferian" in a sense if we choose not to adhere to the tenets Abrahamic religious traditions.

    I myself am a solitary Asatru, for the most part, I still look to other traditions but not of them speak to me as well as the old norse way.
