  • (Video) Serpentine Love Field by Dr Lila Moore
    [Author’s Note: The nature of the sound in this video, which is noise known as pink noise. It should be played as a low frequency in the background. This sound occurs widely in nature and natural systems. It binds things and systems together, so it is sound with auspicious vibes. It is integrated, as you can read, in a ritualistic networked performance and video, which is based on a powerful ancient tradition of the Mother and her healing serpents, which was passed on to a Christian […]
  • (Photo Essay 2) Goddess Pilgrimage 2017 by Kaalii Cargill
    [Author’s Note: In July 2017, I set out on a 4 month pilgrimage to the Unites States, Italy, France, Spain, Lebanon, Jordan, and Egypt. I name it a “pilgrimage” because my main focus is what I call “visiting with the Grandmothers”, although I also encountered many other wonderful people and places. This series of Photo Essays is an invitation for you to visit with the Grandmothers I met on my journey . . .] The Met, New York The Metropolitan Museum of Art began to acquire ancient art and artifacts from the […]
  • (Poem) Unappreciated Woman by Amina Rodriguez
    Unappreciated woman, Deep emotions never spoken are seen clearly in your eyes, Unappreciated woman, your power is burning and intense Smoldering your insides out till there’s nothing left of you Power that intense can only mean it’s been held back by ingratitude and neglect, Withheld by forced-fed beliefs They’re not yours, return them, leave them, You are more than just an unappreciated woman…. Like a sling shot, once let loose, your power triggers an evolutionary force, A force beyond […]
  • (Book Excerpt 2) For-Giving: A Feminist Criticism of Exchange by Genevieve Vaughan
    The Gift Paradigm There is a fundamental paradigm, with widespread and far reaching effects, which is not being noticed. It may seem strange, in the time of space travel, computers and genetic engineering, that anything really important could be ignored. However, we may remember the idea of the “elephant in the living room” talked about by Alcoholics Anonymous. People who are in denial of someone’s alcoholism do not mention it. In order to maintain the status quo, they turn their attention to […]
  • (Poem) Poem to a Plant Goddess by Sara Wright
    Her name is Datura. Delicate fluted deep-throated trumpets open to humming honey bees and summer rains. She communicates through scent.   In the fall I collect her sharp-needled pods. They rattle like dry bones. I chill them. In the spring I coax seeds to sprout wrapping each in papery white cloth, sing love songs  –  siren calls to rouse each root from winter’s sleep.   I am patient… a woman in waiting for the heat of the sun to unfurl the mystery of becoming that is re-acted in spring.   Only […]
  • (Poem) Cat Friend by Andrea Nicki
    Sick and feverish with the flu you cough and turn in your bed all night In your dreams people come and go though you try to root one firmly in your room a genie bearing hot tea, orange juice, tylenol, and love (you shouldn’t have asked for the love) Your cat curled at your leg never moves an inch gazes at you watchfully her silver face seems to float across the air bringing you the moon (Meet Mago Contributor) Andrea Nicki   Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on […]
  • (Prose) It is a Matter of Focus by Deanne Quarrie
    Many of the young women I meet tell me that they think feminism is not what they are about, that they prefer to work for the good of all. I understand that and certainly we can all choose where we wish to place our focus. However, it does make me wonder how effective we can be with our focus placed on so broad a scope. Certainly, we want equal rights for all and some call that feminism these days but is it? In my 75 years, I have lived through quite a few years of women working for equal rights. I have seen many […]

  • Lammas – the Sacred Consuming by Glenys Livingstone Ph.D.
    Lammas, the first seasonal transition after Summer Solstice, may be summarised as the Season that marks and celebrates the Sacred Consuming, the Harvest of Life. Many indigenous cultures recognised the grain itself as Mother … Corn Mother being one of those images – She who feeds the community, the world, with Her own body: the Corn, the grain, the food, the bread, is Her body. She the Corn Mother, or any other grain Mother, was/is the original sacrifice … no need for extraordinary heroics: it is the […]
