Let the Pagan Blog Project 2013 begin!!!!!
One of my favorite things to do all year, but especially at Mabon, is to cut an apple horizontally and see the Pentagram hidden inside.
When people criticize me for my spiritual beliefs, I have begun to ask them what they see when they cut an apple horizontally. When they say, “seeds,” I then ask what form/shape the seeds are in. Sometimes I’ll get a snarky response of “so it’s a star but that’s a devil-star” and those are the people who I disengage from. However to others I will smile and say, “Christians have natural representations of their beliefs- the sand dollar for instance. This is my natural representation: the five Elements arranged in Nature.”
