I am a freelance illustrator and college student.
I am a solitary eclectic Christo-Pagan practitioner with a Judeo-Christian pantheon. My Patron God is Yahweh, my Matron Goddess is Asherah. Other deities in my personal pantheon include the demigods Yeshua, Mary Magdalene and Mother Mary, and the Holy Spirits. Some Deities I respect from other pantheons are: the Greek God Pan, the Egyptian Goddess Bast and the Celtic Goddess Brigid. I also have heavily shamanistic views on nature and have a strong spiritual connection and affinity with animals.
How did you hear about Pagan-Place
The colorist for my webcomic posted a link on her Facebook. :3
Who am I
My name is Sage. I am a college student, and relatively new to accepting my Pagan path. I grew up in a southern non-denominational Christian home. I have always loved nature and been fascinated by the paranormal and things most people around me were uncomfortable to talk about.
More About Me
I am a gender-fluid individual (my gender identity is both male and female) in a lesbian marriage with a wonderful woman named Lilly. She is male-to-female transgender, and an eclectic witch herself. I am very much in love with her, and we just got married on the full moon this June. We have a little blue betta fish named Mercutio; he is our tiny blue child and we love him.
I keep this quote close at heart, because I believe it to be true: 'No one ever decides to become Pagan, they simply wake up one day and realize that they have been Pagan all along.'
Hero's or Other Info
My hero is my wife, Lilly. I also revere people from history like Jesus of Nazareth, Hildegard of Bingen, Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr, Harvey Milk, Neil Patrick Harris, Henry David Thoreau, Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Richard Adams, Frida Kahlo, Vincent van Gogh, Leonard Nimoy, William Shatner, George Takei and Gene Roddenberry.
I like drawing, painting, sculpting, arts and crafts, witchcraft, taking care of animals, open-minded nice people, my friends, people who are nice to animals, trees, the ocean, playing video games, playing dungeons & dragons and other roleplaying games, people who support LGBT rights, reading, writing poetry, keeping the arts alive in public schools, cheese pizza, peaches, science, learning other languages, mongooses, chickens, deer, cows, cats, freshwater fish, traveling, and cuddling on the couch with my sweet lady after a long day.
I don't like homophobes or bigots of any kind, people who don't respect nature, spiders, people who are ignorant or rude, people who say rude things to my partner, crappy parents who don't care about their kids, stupid people who think that because you're pro-choice that you must hate all children or you're an evil baby killer, people who make fun of other religions (yes, including Pagans who make fun of Christians and other Pagans) just because a handful of people of that religion have slighted them and so they discriminate against the entire faith, people in my family who pressure me to have a baby even though they know I don't want children, people who throw around words like 'fluffybunny' in order to be condescending and bent on hurting another person's feelings, people who abuse animals or other living things, rape/sexual assault jokes, country music, people who spread false rumors/data about LGBT individuals, people who don't take their faith seriously, people who take their faith TOO seriously, little cars on giant wheels, people who compare transwomen to drag queens, drunk people, heights, people who say things like 'You're not really transgender, you're just a confused butch lesbian or a drag king,' people who cheat at card games, notice how most of these have to do with people...yeah, I guess I just don't like most people.
My hobbies include drawing, painting, sculpting, arts and crafts, witchcraft, taking care of animals, playing video games, playing dungeons & dragons and other roleplaying games, reading, writing poetry, studying history, theology, science, fine arts, graphic arts, and language, and spending time with my partner and friends.
