Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Stand Up and Be Counted!

Everyone who identifies in any way with modern Pagan/Heathen spirituality is being urged to participate in this census. This is legitimate and has been endorsed by some of the most respected people in Craft and Pagan leadership. It takes some time to complete, but is very important.

PLEASE spread the word to everyone you know. The more respondents the census has, the more accurate the data. You can find it here:

Or if that longer link is too long for your screen, and breaks or wraps, you can use this shortened, tiny link:

These links should take you directly to the survey, not to an invitation to create a survey.

Background info:
Pagan scholar Helen Berger, co-author of “Voices from the Pagan Census: A National Survey of Witches and Neo-Pagans in the United States”, has announced that she and fellow researchers James R. Lewis and Henrik Bogdan are revisiting the Pagan Census project.

The Pagan Census was first initiated nearly twenty years ago, and compiled data from thousands of modern Pagans to give a fascinating snapshot of our communities during Paganism’s meteoric rise in the 1990s. Now, in an age of blogs and instant communications, an update is underway to compare and contrast just how much we’ve changed. The authors write:

“A number of scholars have noted that it would be helpful to have a follow-up of that survey to see if and how the community has changed or remained the same. The survey that follows uses many, although not all of the same questions that were in the original survey to provide that comparison. There are also new questions, for instance about the Internet, something that was of little interest 20 years ago but is now, and some from other studies, that again permit a comparison. This has resulted in the survey being somewhat long — we appreciate your taking the time to complete it.”

    There is a similar government survey taking place in the UK to see how many Pagans there are and if that should provide religious recognition or not.

    Thank you everyone. The disconnect between respectful sanity and outrageous crazy talk is widening, I fear. But maybe this might help, especially for folks understandably confused and caught in the cross-fire.
