of the Lazy Butterfly - Only Official Site of DenElder's writings
Come one, Come all. Gather around for I have a treat for you on this
week's site review. Many sites on Pagan/Wicca/Witchcraft contain the
same basic information presented almost in the same way. Not so with
The Oracle of the Lazy Butterfly and DenElder, your host and teacher.
I shall give you just a smidgen of information to whet not only your
curiosity but your appetites for knowledge as well. For this is a
site well worth a visit and your time.
DenElder does present the basic information but in an entirely
different way.......a way which not only encourages you but demands
you to develop your own way of thinking. All the articles are
originals from DenElder and although others have taken things from
her site, she is well copyrighted.
That said, DenElder graciously gives one and all permission to make
one copy for their own personal use.
Her home page introduces you to 8 books which are actually
compilations of DenElder's teachings over the last 25 years grouped
into like areas. I will mention here that Books 5 & 6 are
currently under construction, and I for one, cannot wait until they
are finished. In all the available books, you are instructed to read
the articles in the order presented. I would also recommend reading
Books 1 and 2 first before any of the others.
Book 1 is a glossary of terms of paganism, Wicca and Witchcraft. This
glossary contains some of the usual words you would find but many
other words, group of words and names that I have not found anywhere
else and wondered exactly what that did mean. Be sure and read the
introduction first before exploring.
Book 2 is called Ramblings, but is actually a very comprehensive
source of information on basic wicca and touches on many things that
other sites do not. For example, "gaining sensitivity",
"finding your life partner" and "astral
projection". This is also the place where you find out who
DenElder is, what her background is and what she believes.
Book 3 is Crystal Magick and alas, I could not view it as my ISP does
not recognize prehttp format. However, that said, I have seen some of
the information contained within and I can assure you this are holds
some things that most folks don't seem to think of.
Book 4 is Astrology and is very well thought out in the way it is
presented. Not alot of mumbo jumbo but instead precise information
that even a beginner can understand easily.
Book 7 is Tarot Scrying and is actually on the Home Page itself.
DenElder is a Certified Tarot Grand Master and if you are in the
least interested in Tarot or even have been practicing for years like
myself, I recommend that you read every article. I will admit here
that being an Aquarian with my own brand of logic, I tried out of
order. Take it from me, stay in line.
Book 8 is about Rune Scrying. The information starts out basic but
ends up being advanced. Even those who have thrown the stones for
many a moon might learn something new here.
There is also a section on Witchcraft which is excellent and be sure
and read the Disclaimer as well. There is so much information here
that you might not be able to absorb it all in one visit or might
just want to refer to it as needed, so be sure and bookmark this
website. It's a keeper. Enjoy.
