What is a Pagan?

Scribed by Chérie De Sues

Labels can be misleading, hurtful and unfair. The term Pagan is from the Latin word paganus, an adjective originally meaning "rural", "rustic" or "of the country." A Paganus was a country dweller or villager in the eyes of the three largest, organized faiths. Both pagan and heathen have historically been used as a label by those who follow Judaism, Christianity and Islam to indicate a disbeliever of their religion.

Today, Pagans enjoy freedom to follow and practice their faith in the manner most comfortable and meaningful to them. Being a Pagan is a blanket term for many faiths like Historical Polytheism (such as Celtic polytheism, Norse paganism, and Hellenic Polytheistic Reconstructionism also called Hellenismos), Folk/ethnic/Indigenous religions (such as Chinese folk religion and African traditional religion), and Neopaganism (such as Wicca and Germanic Neopaganism).

Yes, it IS confusing, but there are specific names for different faiths, just like Catholic and Protestants are Christian...then Wicca and Native Americans are considered Pagans. Labels, that's all the words are...Labels. It is the deeds, history and the people of a faith that should be considered, not a label.

If you ask any Pagan what the word means to them, you may be surprised to hear many different definitions. People will express themselves in unique ways and their faith is an expression of their inner soul. So leave the labels on the jar of peaches and try to reach out with your heart to understand what is new to you.

For centuries, Gypsies, Pagans, Wiccans and others have had to bear terrible repercussions as other developing faiths tried to strip the "villagers" from their personal beliefs. Now is a time of mending, to live side-by-side in the light and forget the past grievances. Each soul has a right to choose how to reach Summerland or wherever you desire to find peace. Blessed Be )O(

Tales of the Red Moon Clan

Scribed by Chérie De Sues

Tales of the Red Moon Clan is a paranormal suspense thrill ride and action packed. This novel was given excellent reviews by "You Gotta Read", "Two Lips" and "Book Junkie"! Find a hot excerpt at Noble Romance Publishing.

Neol Pallaton walks alone through the bowels of society as a bounty hunter, until he shifts into a cougar to save Assistant D.A. Sara Hughes from certain death. A relentless killer keeps them moving by day through the Oregon forest—and by night under the full moon, passion rules their hearts.

The rugged forest is no place for a beautiful and feisty city woman, but Neol’s determined to help Sara piece together why she's being hunted. Sara thought bounty hunters were brutal loners who stretched the law she’s sworn to uphold. But Neol proves that no one can hunt, track and protect her like a Navajo medicine man from the Red Moon Clan.

Neol is willing to anger the spirits to protect his one true mate. Sara will have to bend the law to keep Neol and her alive—and together forever.

The Séduction of Simone

Scribed by Chérie De Sues

EXCERPT

The Séduction of Simone

Most of the artifacts were behind the glass walls, arranged with cards and descriptions. As museums went, the place seemed amateur. She sighed. She hadn’t come for aesthetics and looked more closely at the pictures of the O’Malley men.

Patrick stood taller and more muscular then Sean. His younger brother had features that looked more delicate. Yet, no less masculine. Both men had dark shoulder length hair and light eyes. The black and white picture had long ago faded. Still, the pale skin and crystal blue eyes of the Irish were easy to discern.

Their smiles were devil-may-care as they raised glasses of what looked like Irish whiskey. Two ladies, on either side of the men, looked smitten and content to have the brothers holding them. As she moved on, a newspaper article condemned the O’Malley’s for being the ruin of women. They were fined by the city for lewd and ungentlemanly behavior and weren’t welcome to the pub any longer.

A list of habits and hobbies included horseback riding, cigars for Patrick and Sean liked black licorice. Both men were crack shots with a rifle and hunted regularly in the surrounding forest.

Simone crouched down to read a small article. The brothers were frequent visitors to the gypsy camp outside of town. Had they sought to have their fortunes read?

The brothers probably found the exotic women to their liking as well, but she couldn’t condemn them. They were no different from many of the men she'd met now, a hundred years later.

As she walked, Simone peeped at the men’s articles of clothing. Sean’s glasses, Patrick’s horsewhip and cigar cutter. She could see the downward spiral. The men didn’t have jobs, were too much in-demand by women to bother with wives and were a giant burr under the saddle of city officials. One little excuse to blame on the men and the powder keg had been ready to explode.

The next article spoke of the Governor issuing the O’Malley’s arrest warrants. The newspaper said nothing of the death penalty. Only the mention of the Governor’s accusation that the O’Malley brothers raped his daughter.
Yes, that would have sealed the men's fate. A father who had such a high position could have shot the men himself, sparing him from a charge of murder.

Welcome to Irish Gypsy's Parlor

Scribed by Chérie De Sues

Welcome to my Irish Gypsy's Parlor...

My name is Chérie Angélique de Sues and my family was cursed by my great, great, great, great grandmother who was dragged through the streets of Paris and burned at the stake as a practicing gypsy-witch.

As she succumbed to the flames, she cursed her daughter-in-law who betrayed her that no de Sues male who married a Catholic bride would bear sons. After many generations and barren, son-less Catholic brides, I am the last of the de Sues name. The curse held true and so began my interest in the Wiccan-Gypsy heritage that is mine.

Irish Gypsy's Parlor will introduce characters from my novels. Ghosts, werewolves, Wiccans and Gypsies who walk by night. A realm of dreams, fortunes and shapeshifters. No one is quite safe, even in the parlor.

So keep scrolling down into the abyss of sexy excerpts, spells, omens, my families Book of Shadows and be enchanted...

May truth shine on you,
Chérie Angélique de Sues

A fourth page to Irish Gypsy's Parlor

Scribed by Chérie De Sues

I'm thrilled with the wonderful comments on my newest blog & website, Irish Gypsy's Parlor. I used this blog name because I'm am a creature of tradition. I'm Irish/Gypsy and my grandmother would take me into her magickal "parlour" to teach me Wiccan Ways... I never thought years later I'd be at the computer and sharing the ancient Book of Shadows and family recipes for success with White Magick. The newest page is just that, Family Book of Shadows, recipes to help you with everyday stress and fix things that become less than ideal in your life. I am a firm believer that you can get what you want, have it your way and make everyone happy in the process with your decisions. A strong woman is no secret in Wicca, we were the chosen, the ones in tune with nature. I hope you enjoy the blessings of our world.
Blessed Be, Cherie

The Pagan & The Pen

Scribed by Chérie De Sues

CH Scarlett is a wonderful author and owner of The Pagan & The Pen. This blog is so much more, as authors, artists and other talented people have pooled their experience. I've joined them and will be writing a monthly, maybe bimonthly column and adding more as time permits. I'm half Wiccan and half Gypsy, this intriguing blog explains the pagan lifestyle, holidays and offers ways to be at peace with yourself and the planet. This appeals to me on so many levels. I'm drawn to talented people; musicians, artisans and writers for their ability to see outside the box. To be able to see the world in a different perspective and not belittle anyone else for their beliefs. I hope you'll join me on June 20th where I'll be talking about the Summer Solstice that will happen on June 21st this year. I plan to participate in a celebration on Summer Solstice so the day before worked for me. See you there!
