Welcome to the Summer Goddess online Book of Shadows. This front page is just a little background information. The reason for having the Summer Goddess and how it is going to be used is also listed here for you. Please read on and if you are interested in contributing after you check thing out, don’t forget to register with WordPress for my blog.
For those of you that remember, I used to have the domain entitled the same in 2001-2004. I have used many screen names but the most popular is probably “Priestess” which I used when I first started The Summer Goddess. For those of you that are new to the Summer Goddess, my name is Sheila Wenninger and I have followed the path of Wicca since I was about 12 years old.
I have been studying for 35 years now and still feel that I am barely more than a novice myself. I feel that the whole idea of being a solitary Wicca is to STUDY and LEARN for your entire life. You must also be willing to SHARE what you have learned, and GROW in your spirituality so I have shared over the years by having an online Book of Shadows and grown by listening to the opinions of others on my B-O-S content. I have also added to and even changed some things this way.
I maintained the Summer Goddess domain for three years out of my own pocket. I enlisted the help of several friends by offering them space online to submit certain categories of that Book. After a while, I ran out of money and couldn’t get financial assistance to keep that Book going so we had to close up shop.
I have still kept much of the content that was on the original site. I also have added to my personal Book of Shadows during that time. Now, I feel the time is right to bring back the Summer Goddess on WordPress. With the blog settings that are available here, this Book of Shadows should be the best ever.
Because it is a blog, instead of giving everyone involved a way to log in to the admin pages; if you wish to add to an article or a ritual you can just post your suggestions or variations right to that page. The blog format also leaves you the option of asking questions and receiving answers to anything that may need clarification.
Since that is the specific purpose of this online Book of Shadows, I’m sure everyone will understand that it is necessary to require registration to post on this site. As much as I hate to do that, I feel it is the only way to keep the posts on topic and free from spam. Thank you for understanding that point and for following the rules of this site that will be posted on a separate page.
