So I got a cheep ass digital camera and love taking pictures with it...I feel like a child with a new toy ^_^. So I took some pictures of my hidden altar to show you all. I also wanted to talk about how things have been going. Come to find out my grandma knows that I am not Christian. We had a talk about it. I said somethings that she agrees with and some she did not. She said a lot of things that I did not agree with but I did not press the issue. Apparently witches are like nuns who a married to the Devil...who knew :P
Eh that does not suspire me that she would think stuff like that. As a child she would make me watch this movie on the evils of Halloween and how pagans would sacrifice babies. So when is the next sacrifice guys?
Anywho she leaves me alone on it most of the time, She'll do things like leave the 700 club on and I can swear she turns it up when that old man starts ranting the sinner's prayer. Like your T.V. is a great spiritual medium. Sigh. Sorry about the ranting myself but I am all on my own for the next two weeks and given my situation am not going to celebrate Yule. I just don't want to bring myself down you know...Soo pictures



This is the altar that sits on top of my computer hutch. I know the pictures are a little blurry but what can you expect from a 20.00 camera?



God and Goddess candles and my chalice. In the back is my sword, it is kind of hard to see clause I keep it in the sheath. My grandma gave me the candle holders. I feel a little bad for her giving them to me for my candles without knowing what they stood for, but it is better than explaining why not to use them.



I could not get a very good pic of the image I am using for my God but I could get one for my Goddess. Now, just hear me out before you throw me to the wolves, but this Wonder Woman figurer that is acting as my makeshift Goddess has been really working out for me. You see I am going thought a lot of changes in my life and most of them have to do with my own will power and want to be a healthier, stronger person. Well she kind of inspires me to be so. Out of all that heroic female icons of the modern era she stands out. Sure her costumes have been skimpy here and there but now once have I ever seen her as a sex object, unlike most of the heroines. She stands as tall as the men, can stand toe to toe with any of the boys, is diplomatic but not afraid to pick-up a sword (or a lasso), and can not understand why women of all shapes, sized, and race do not see themselves as anything less than amazing. Looking at her every day drives me to be strong, beautiful, and confident. No matter how much I might hurt or just want to be lazy. In the end isn't that what a Goddess or a God figure meant to do? Inspire.

as I have a brother that is a huge comic book geek, and a close friend that used to WORK in a comic shop, well, I can tell you I don't find you using wonderwoman as a goddess image all that odd at all.

I mean, when you look at the back story of wonder woman it fits. She's a member of an tribe of amazon women who follow the goddess Aphrodite (yeah, odd choice there, they got the goddesses kinda mixed up there lol). Her and her tribe were warriors of the goddess, trained much like the shao lin of china, to be able to focus their mind to improve their body. Not only that, but the original concept was that she was supposed to be a superhero that would win out over evil by the power of love, not the power of the first.

Not odd at all as a representative of the goddess.

On top of that, what are the stories of comics these days if not the modern era's legend and myth. Hell, if you look closely at the Pantheon of superheros, you can see so many similarities to the stories of the Gods, regardless of the Pantheon.

oh, and another thing. Wonder Woman's actual name is Diana, which links into the greek goddess of the same name. So, again, appropriate

Yeah, as a pre-teen / teenage girl I was in love with Artemis / Diana At the time I honestly did not know how appropriate it was for the forest hiking, wanting to hunt with dad, tom boyish girl I was. It was only after I married that I lost my connection to her energy and my eyes found her brother Apollo as my first God figure and Aphrodite replaced her

Oh, and as I have gotten older Apollo has faded from my life to be replaced by Cernunnos. My Goddess became almost nonexistent for a long while but it looks like that strong kick-ass warrior female is making a come back, we will see.

IMO, one could do a lot worse than Wonder Woman for a goddess figure :-). Besides, given that one of my "god" figures is this guy, I have no room to talk ;-).
