  • I’m quite sorry Elefarya Rosamunda-chei. Sometimes I ramble. I guess what I am asking is would that kind of philosophy be appropriate for Chelouranya? I am also inquiring about Chelouranyan relationships and why people do not pair off.

    Petite Sorciere-chei, thank you very much! Your answer has helped me much!

  • らヤチ,

    My apologies for my late replies. I do have the link to the mascul in question, but I will not post it unless anyone wants it out of fear of being rude.

    I am only slightly familiar with this person. He did not seem to grasp female essentialism and if I remember correctly he attempted to add men to Deanism. Deanism is a beautiful relig…[Read more]

  • Rayati Miss Venus,

    I think the problem is that “Aphroditism” was something some people talked about for a while but very much a passing phase. I kind of remember reading the expression in old forums. I haven’t heard it for ages and am not entirely sure what it meant.

    I would think rather than being an old way of Aristasia it was probably more…[Read more]

  • Rayati Miss Venus,
    Oh dear. I don’t wish you to feel neglected, but I’m at a loss as to what exactly it is you are asking. The maidens best equipped to answer you are not exactly available right now, and I came aboard well after the Aphrodite Cocktail Bar. I do hope you get an answer eventually.
    In Amity,

  • Rayati!

    I hope this doesn’t offend anyone. I am new and I’ll delete it if it does.

    I was looking into old Aristasia (just because I find what they write so fascinating) and I came across the old Aphrodite Cocktail Bar and Aphroditism. I know some of the old ways of Aristasia were carried over into Chelouranya, even though they are very different…[Read more]

    Rayati, ah yes, Mie-chei and Miss Venus, I didn’t really expect you to be near enough to drop by but it is worth asking! I am sure we will meet if we are meant to, whatever the distances. Rayati and love, Clare Trent

    Rayati, Clare-chei! It’s very nice to meet you.

    I am unfortunately in Texas. I would have loved to do just that but I am planning a trip to Toronto for the next year. It does sound like a wonderful retreat. If things go awry with my trip to Canada I’ll be sure to swing by California if possible.

    In amity,
    Venus

    Rayati! Miss Trent, I have seen many of your posts on Shining World and have long wished to make your acquaintance. I currently reside in Western Canada, and am sadly quite far away, but I should quite love in the future to make the trip down.

    Such a project is a large undertaking, and I hope you are doing quite well.

  • Welcome Miss Venus, please give me your loving indulgence and please forgive my tardy greeting. I am often busy with my Retreat Center which is dedicated to the Mother and Her Daughter and is a sacred two acre space in the mountains outside of patriarchy. The Fairies have led me to a healing/recalibrating system, method? – I am not sure what to…[Read more]

    Unfortunately it has become a very patriarchal religion without realizing it. The masculi always complain about it having no men, but they don’t see how it’s been tainted by masculinity as is. If that makes any sense.

    I felt as if it were more a self worshiping religion rather than a divinely inspired one. It is quite sad. Diana/Artemis is never…[Read more]

  • Welcome Miss Venus,

    I don’t know much about Dianism (if that is the correct term). It seems rather sad that it should be – well masculinist. I am glad you are finding a gentler way!

    Which anime do you like?

    Please give me your loving indulgence.

    Rayati, honored Miss Venus! It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance, and I look forward to getting to know you better!

    Oh yes! Pardon me for not doing this last night. I’m quite new to Chelouranya. I came from a dianic pagan background and after a while I didn’t feel anything for it. It was a little too “radical” for my tastes. Believe it or not I was extremely short-haired and attempted to be masculine! I got tired of this though. I wished to be more feminine and…[Read more]

  • Rayati and welcome Honored Miss Venus,

    Please give me your loving indulgence.

    Your profile picture is quite lovely.

    If you would be so kind as to introduce yourself, and let us know a little more about you and your interest in Chelouranya, we would be very grateful.

    I hope you enjoy your stay here.

  • I just remembered this thread today –

    Normally, I keep a Rider-Waite deck downloaded on my phone. Something about having it is very calming.

    However, I found a new app that I’ve quite fallen in love with – it’s called KawaiiTarot (I have an Android phone), and the imagery is a sort of kawaii, minimalist Japanese art.

    I don’t know if any…[Read more]

  • Rosamunda-chei, I agree wholeheartedly. Part of my frustration with the situation was that… Well, why does a mascül feel the need to have a say about our culture, when it does not pertain to him?

    As for my friend, she has indeed been looking into Chelouranya – thank Dea, she has not been driven away from the beauty of our inherent femininity…[Read more]

  • Well, since you’ve happened to ask, here is a brunette perspective, and a married one, and a struggling in Telluria one all together.

    You’re choosing a hard road. But is it really harder than going against your nature?

    Telluria right now expects everyone who looks like a grown up to work, and the economy in the United States is certainly set up…[Read more]

  • Your mother may be thinking that it is a big risk to go into the world unqualified even if you think now that that is what you want to do. It is the sort of thing mothers think and the point of view is understandable up to a point – but..

    It seems to me that an even bigger risk is to take on a big burdensome debt in order to get a qualification…[Read more]
