Hello. I became a Wiccan less than a year ago. I am reading everything I can get my hands on to learn about the Craft. There is so much to learn, that I have to say that I feel a little overwhelmed. But I also feel better about myself and life in general since I became a Wiccan.
I joined this site to commuicate with other Wiccans/Pagans. I am somewhat isolated from other Pagans where I live. I am deffinately still in the "broom closet" because my Christian family and friends would NOT understand why I changed religions. There is a Pagan group that meets regularly that I joined last year. Unfortunately, they meet about 85 miles from where I live, so I really can't go to many of their meetings. I am hoping to be able to learn from others on this site.
I am a middle aged woman who has really made a change in the way I see my life and spirituallity. I have always been different than my Christian friends and family, though. I have been a ovo-lacto vegetarian for over ten years now due to my empathy for animals. I have a live and let live attitude about what consenting adults choose to do as far as their sexual preferences. I am pro gay marriage.
Lastly, I chose Morgana for my online name because I love the "Merlin" series on BBC and the Sci-fi channal:D. And I read that in the early stories about King Arthur, Morgan Le Fay was a sorceress who was a healer. I guess in the early stories, it was Morgan that took Arthur to Avalon to be healed. I think that it was so sad that she was made a villian in later stories. I guess she was made a villian because Christian readers could never accept a witch as a good character. Blessed be.
