Hello and thank you once again for joining us down at the crossroads for some music, magick, and Paganism. Where witches gather for the sabbath, offerings are made, pacts are signed for musical fame and we cross paths with today’s most influential Pagans, occultists, and deep thinkers. I am your bewitching, bald headed, host Chris Orapello and tonight Tara and I meet with blogger, teacher, and author Jason Mankey to discuss his book The Horned God of the Witches available from Llewellyn. Get ready for the lingering effects of the Satanic panic, Jesus with boobs, phalluses old and new, internalized homophobia, the history of witchcraft books, alcohol and community, the problem of evil, makeup and the shaving of one’s legs, Elen of the ways, authenticity, and more. This is a fun, long overdue, interview with Jason and we’re happy to finally be able to bring it to you.
Explore the deep spiritual roots of the Horned God and discover rituals and activities designed to help you get closer to him. Throughout history, horned deities have been honored as gods of nature, sex, fertility, passion, sacrifice, death, and rebirth. The Horned God of the Witches reveals the origins and features of their most common guises―Pan, Cernunnos, Herne, Elen of the Ways, the Green Man, and even the Devil.
Whether you are interested in the Wiccan Horned God―a more contemporary composite of several deities―or in one of his many other forms, these rituals for meeting the powerful deity will help you achieve your magical goals. With hands-on techniques for divination, creating an altar, working magick, spiritual lovemaking, and receiving the gifts of the Witchfather, this book supports a transformative deepening of your relationship to the divine.The Horned God of the Witches, Back Cover
