Love Notes for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is upon us. Let's pass a couple love notes! Some people believe that the Ancient Roman holiday of the Lupercalia was the forerunner to Valentine's Day. That's not actually true, but there are some associations so we'll take a look at what the Lupcalia was all about. Then we'll talk a bit about the Christian St. Valentine - or ValentineS, plural. There was actually more than one Valentine - but were they all lovers?? Which brings us to Romantic Love - as old as the human race,…See More

February; Fire and Ice

They say that February was made the shortest month because everybody wants it to be OVER WITH on the first day. February is one of the most primordial months. It's all about extremes. And, like the sabbat Imbolc, it's just as much about Fire as it is about Ice. Fire and Ice are the Primordial elements that, in the Norse Tradition that formed to create our world. So this is a good time to think a bit about the Nordic Tradition; just what is and what it means. The Heathens tell us that Polarities…See More

A Celebration of Imbolc

This week we celebrate Imbolc! We're at the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Perfectly natural to want to jump up and down and start acting like Spring is Here! Folly, pure folly! Watch out if the weather is fine on Imbolc - you might find yourself shoveling the driveway on Eostara! But before that, let's take some time to honor the Goddess Brigid, the Triple Goddess of Poetry, Healing and Smithcrafting. And we'll enjoy some Tres Leches cake as well!Be well! Do good!…See More

Sophia Lucifer commented on Radiohawthorne's blog post Happiness!
"As the goddess who is your mother I have become an old woman, even though I might still appear to be young, and my goddess body or anadamaya kosha is full of 365 kinds of pains. I am so tired after 30,000 years of battles against Yahweh and St.…"

Happiness!

So, are you among the Shiny Happy People? Or does the thought make you fear that you could be labled a fuzzy bunny Wiccan? Perhaps you are genuinely happy with your Dark Magicks! If you share my political outlook - if you marched this weekend - I just want to affirm that your discontent - even your malaise - is well founded. But now is the time for us to affirm our inner happiness while recognizing our frustration. Happiness is amorphous. It's hard to define, and sometimes it's hard to know if…See More

All Along the Watchtowers

This week, we welcome The Guardians of the Watchtowers. We've all done it; we've created Sacred Space by calling the Spirits of the Four Directions. We stand at each direction and draw the appropriate pentagram and we Invoke the Spirits that have the appropriate character. But where does all that mumbo jumbo come from? Some say Gerald Gardner, which is correct to a point. Others say that Witches have been doing that on their own and in secret, like, forever - which is really not at all true. So…See More

The Philosopher's Stone

This week here on The Spiral Dance, we're talking about the Philosopher's Stone. It's a part of alchemy, but just what IS the Philosopher's Stone? Where does it come from? Is it even a Stone? This question has been bothering people for generations. Some people just give up and say it's just a lot of poetic rhetoric. Others say, "No, look! I've done that! I've got it right here!" Some say it's all Devilry, others say it's all God stuff. Well, you can choose as we try to sort it all out.Be well.…See More

The Stars of Winter

Happy New Year, everyone! This week we gaze at the clear cold night sky as we honor The Stars of Winter. We'll look up to find The Winter Triangle. Stars that are part of the Winter Triangle teach us that their forces can aid in the service to those of us who are spiritually attuned. And we take it a step further as we honor two special "stars" of Winter; the Norse Goddess Skadi, and the Norse God, Ullr. Now, did you know that Scandinavia may have been named after the Goddess Skadi. Some…See More

Holy Grail, Holy Cauldron

This week we look at the so-called Holy Grail. What is this thing that people are so enamoured of? Did it even exist? People have been searching for it for hundreds of years, and it seems whenever they decide they can't find it, they create stories about it. So, let's travel back the the 12th century, where the myth of the Holy Grail seems to have it's beginnings. And we'll take a look at some of the embellishments that have been attached to it over time. There does seem to be a link between…See More

The Magick of Masking

The Magick of MaskingThis week here on The Spiral Dance, let's create Magick through Masking. If you went to a Halloween party, what would you "Go As"?We all wear masks, although the extent to which we layer ourselves or are aware of them varies greatly.Masks are a familiar and vivid element in many folk and traditional pageants, ceremonies, rituals and festivals, and are often of an ancient origin.One reason for wearing a mask is to pretend to be someone or something else. The mask can be a…See More

Water Magick for Autumn

This week here on The Spiral Dance, we continue our celebration of Autumn as we look at some of the season's important associations. Water is one of the elements in ancient Greek philosophy, and in Occult circles it's associated with the Western Quarter of the Circle, and with the season of Autumn. So we'll look at how and why Water got associated with the Autumn as we tie in some of their similar Magickal Properties.Then we'll take a walk into an Autumn Garden with Ellen Dugan, well known…See More

The Stars of Autumn

This week here on The Spiral Dance, let's look skyward and see what's up there. Every season brings different views of the Heavens, and Autumn is no different. And, the Stars of Autumn bring their own stories and myths. So to start this week, I have a poem written back in 1819 by the English Romantic poet, John Keats. In his poem, "To Autumn" he captures the feeling and spirit of this season. Then we'll talk a bit about Astronomy itself, and one view of how why people started making…See More

Tales Told Out of School; Urban Myths

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 11:05am 0 Comments

The Urban Myth is the subject of this week's show.

 

Why do we tell eachother such stories? They're always so extreme and fantastic that, really, the rational mind knows they can't be true. But not only do we tell them anyway; we, in fact listen to them as well. Maybe these fantastic set of circumstances just might be real afterall!

 

The Urban myth has alot in common with traditional myths and folklore, in the way they satisfy a need for storytelling. It may be…
