When I joined the PBP, I came in on the 2nd week of C. I've been itching to do Computer. Why? Well, if you are reading this post, you are using one, whether it's a laptop, desktop, tablet, or smartphone. If it weren't for computers, I would still be struggling with finding Pagan info and communities. TechnoPagan FTW!! There are zillions of Pagan blogs, Facebook groups, Twitter accounts, podcasts, etc. There are virtual altars and covens. When I cast my circle, I typically include my computer in case I need to look up something or play music via iTunes.
I love the Computer Goddess!
TechnoWitches have eBooks of Shadows that they may share online at his/her website or save it via USB drive for personal use. Yes, I know our ancestors did not have access to the 'net and many traditions then and now are still oral. But I see no problem with using the technology that we have today to further our spirituality. Do you use a CD for circle music? Do you have an email list for your coven members? Do you drive a car to the local Pagan conference? I use an app to track the moon phase (Deluxe Moon) and one to track various earthly bodies (Google Sky). And for those of us who are really into magic, there is an app that tracks the planetary hours.
I have a degree in Applied Information Technology. The Goddess in me absolutely loves computers and electronics. I haven't quite come up with a mythology but the Goddess of Technology is my matron goddess. She is Unnamed at the moment but Her domain (heh heh!) is electronics, computers, technologically advanced ancient civilizations, and the Internet. Can't find your iPod? Did your hard drive crash? Mobile phone lose all contacts? Ask the Technology Goddess for assistance.
As much as I love computers/technology, there is a need to unplug every once in a while. After all, being pagan is about nature and connecting with the daily/monthly/yearly rhythms. Take some time away from all screens and read a book or go outside - or read a book outside :). Being a TechnoPagan means using technology for us and not letting technology use us.
What are some of the ways you use computers in your practice? Feel free to share your favorite apps, websites, eBooks, etc.
