Fruit in Myth and Magick

Have you ever thouthgt about the role that Fruit plays in myth and magick? Well, this week we'll compare apples to oranges. Fruit appears in myths from around the world. Often it is a symbol of abundance, associated with goddesses of fertility, plenty, and the harvest. And, as you may expect, many of the most significant fruits in world mythology, such as the apple, have different meanings to different cultures. We'll take a short look at many of these. Also, we'll learn how To Use Fruit…See More

Leprechauns and Other Wee Folk

It's springtime, and Fearies abound. Let's see if we can't catch us one! The Leprechaun is one of the major images that the Mainstream Culture has of what a Feary is, or what a Feary looks like. The other, of course, is Disney's Tinkerbell. Whatever Pagan path you may be following, I'm sure I don't have to tell you that neither of those images fullfills the whole tradition of the Fearie. But anyway, the Leprechaun has a pretty interesting story by itself (or Himself - come to think of it, I've…See More

Air Magick

This week here on The Spiral Dance, we listen to the Wind blow, as we talk about Air Magick. We'll start off finding out what the Ancient Greeks had to say about the Air - was it warm and dry, or cold and wet - or maybe even warm and wet! Plato, Aristotle and many others all had opinions. Each of the Four Winds - North, south, east and west have specific magickal properties and are all ruled by specific Gods. But they're not alone; all the minor winds from the northeast to the southwest have…See More

Mystery Cults

This week let's go way back in time to talk about Mystery Cults. Mystery religions were religious cults in Ancient Greece and Rome. Participation was reserved to initiates and secrecy was kept as to the particulars of the initiation and the cult practice in general. But how did these sects function within their societies? Were they accepted? Were there conflicts? Talking just about this one aspect of life in Ancient Greece and Rome can give great insight into how people back then lived their…See More

Music In Ritual

I think a lot about music and the power that music has. So this week, let's talk about the role that music plays in ritual! Music was important to the Chinese philosopher, Confucious, as it has been for shamans around the world and down the ages. In fact I have a little story that tell us just exactly how music came to the earth way back when. And central to music is Rythm, singing and Dance. So we'll talk about all that stuff. And finally, we'll look at ways to write and create effective…See More

Blessed Beltane

Blessed Beltane, one and all! Beltane is happening on Wednesday, the first of May!  It's a festival of Fertility and Love as we welcome the flowering of Nature's Return. In our mythology Beltane represents the Mating of the Goddess and the God. It's The Original White Wedding! So, we'll talk in more detail about the meaning and significance of May Day from our earliest history.  Plus we'll talk about the mythologies and customs that are traditionally associated with Beltane.  And, while we're…See More

The Language of Flowers

This week here on The Spiral Dance, it's all about "Floriography"- the Language of Flowers! Interest in floriography soared in Victorian England and in the United States during the 19th century, but Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years. And so, for springtime, lets look at the magick of 3 springtime flowers; the rose, the tulip, and the dandelion. Also, while the Snowdrop is more a HARBINGER of spring rather than a Spring Flower, I have a traditional story from Hans…See More

Spring Cleaning

It's time for Spring Cleaning! The idea of Spring Cleaning actually goes all the way back to ancient Egypt. We'll take a look at why Spring has become the time when we Clean House.And, while House Cleaning IS TERRIBLY, BORINGLY mundane, it does have magickal implications, and so we'll talk about some ways we can bring our Magick into our chores in some very powerful ways. While we're clearing out our attics, let's look for Crafty Ways to Rummage and Recycle. Afterall, "Repair, Re-fashion and…See More

Spring Visions

I'm dedicating this weeks show to one of the Five Cardinal Elements, the Element of Air. It's a good topic for April because, by many traditions, Air is associated with Springtime and Day's Beginning. Usually associated with Men's Mysteries, Air is most often thought of as on the Mental Plane. The Romans gave the month of April it's name, which they called, Aprilis. For the Romans, it signifies a time of unfolding leaves and flowers. So we'll take a look at the Season of Spring - from the…See More
