An enlightening quote

“We believe in the Horned God and in the Goddess of the Moon.  Now this doesn’t mean that we’re silly enough to think that the Moon in the sky is a goddess.  I don’t think any educated pagan ever did think that.  What this means to us is that the masculine and feminine powers of nature were symbols; magical images, and by means of our imaginations, we can make a real contact with these cosmic forces: the forces of nature, the forces of life.”                    -Doreen Valiente

Listen to Auntie Doreen herself at about 4:00.
