Ancient moon priestesses were called virgins. ‘Virgin’ meant not married, not belonging to a man - a woman who was ‘one-in-herself’. The very word derives from a Latin root meaning strength, force, skill; and was later applied to men: virile. Ishtar, Diana, Astarte, Isis were all called virgin, which did not refer to sexual chastity, but sexual independence. And all great culture heroes of the past, mythic or historic, were said to be born of virgin mothers: Marduk, Gilgamesh, Buddha, Osiris, Dionysus, Genghis Khan, Jesus - they were all affirmed as sons of the Great Mother, of the Original One, their worldly power deriving from her. When the Hebrews used the word, and in the original Aramaic, it meant ‘maiden’ or ‘young woman’, with no connotations to sexual chastity. But later Christian translators could not conceive of the ‘Virgin Mary’ as a woman of independent sexuality, needless to say; they distorted the meaning into sexually pure, chaste, never touched.

Hey Woah get “Isis” and “Osiris” out of this post. Ancient Kemetics had no concept of virginity , it wasn’t even a thing, and even if we go by modern definitions along the lines of “never had sex”, Aset (Isis) clearly has sex with Wesir (Osiris) after his death. And Wesir wasn’t even truly born, there was no birth or anything of the sort with him, he was created by thought and word as many of the Netjer were. Keep this fluffy bunny shit away from my deities. Don’t even get me started on how sexist this is while under the guise of “empowering” women.

It is absolutely unnecessary, from a Polytheistic understanding, to negate the experience or belief of one person in order to affirm the experience or belief of another. Polytheism is capable of recognizing multiple simultaneous truths, experiences, and beliefs in a way that does not seek to order or rank them. Spiritual hierarchies are neither necessary nor, in my opinion, helpful within the context of Polytheism in general.

Honestly though. What the fuck makes people think Ouija boards are dangerous? What? Do you think Hasbro has spirits locked in a room somewhere that influenced the creation? Or they sandwich the spirits in between the paper and the cardboard?
ANY tool can be used to contact…
Hold on hold on, now, I agree with OP on the fundamental point that Ouija boards are no different than any other tool. This brings me to my other point: be wary of ALL such tools. Not don’t use them, just know what you’re doing. I like OPs post I just don’t want it turning into an excuse for fluffy bunnies to believe that Ouija boards can cause them no harm
