Dirty Money: Transactional Pagan Writings
Exploring Pagans and their relationship with that earthiest of earth symbols, money.
Pagan savings challenge, week fifteen: secrets
There's been a lot written about the culture secrecy lately. In the Pagan community, many people are questioning whether a culture of secrecy perpetuates bad behavior, and in the broader United States, the President is seeking to dismantle the culture of secrecy surrounding salaries.
In both of those cases, secrecy can lead to advantage being taken, but secrecy has its place. When it comes to money specifically, even if we develop a culture in which we all feel comfortable talking about money, we don't necessarily want people to know where we stash our cash. That's why I was delighted to discover a post on creating a money jar for the Pagan savings challenge, the image for this very post was nicked from Mistress of the Hearth to show what one might look like.
As someone who is saving this money in cash, and particularly since I make a habit of taking pictures of my savings for most of these posts, I appreciate this form of secrecy. My money is protected by the gods of my household generally, the gods of wealth and thievery specifically, and the best locks and methods of hiding that I can muster.
My week fifteen savings: $120, 12.5% ($15) of which I added today.
