Celebrating Eostara

This week on The Spiral Dance we celebrate Eostara; The Spring Equinox Astronomically, the Equinox occurs on Wednesday, March 20. We'll be talking about the history of Spring Equinox - the role that it has played in cultures down the ages: So, we'll talk about the Norse Goddess Eoster. Is she a bonefide Goddess, or just a fiction created by one author? Does it matter, really?

Thinking About Deism

Deism as an encompassing thought and philosophy had a major influence over those we in American call our Founding Fathers. Thus the shape of our Constitution is very much a product of Deism. But what's the connection between Deism and Paganism? Well, in the Eighteenth Century many Deists spoke of a Creator God, or The God of Nature. They connected to the Devine through Rational Thought Processes, and by connecting with Nature. Clearly the Deists of 1775 would scoff at the Pagans of today. But…See More

The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

This week we talk about The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was formally establihed on March 1, 1888. It's had a tremendous influence on Western Occult thought over the past century. Indeed, it's easy to say that without the Golden Dawn, Wicca - and therefore the whole Pagan revival - might never have seen the light of day. It's really too bad that today in Greece there is a neo-fascist group calling themselves Golden Dawn. So, I think for that reason…See More

Tales Told Out of School; Urban Myths

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 that the Urban Myth expresses a…See More

Animal Totems; Yay or Nay?

This week here on The Spiral Dance, we're discussing Animal Totems. In the general neoPagan community people - not everyone - who work with animal spirit guides talk about Animal Totems. Purists will tell you that that's kind of a misnomer. Totems are not really spirit guides and spirit guides are not really totems. Where do YOU stand on this immense question?? Well, I'm here to untangle the whole mess and by the time we're finished we'll all know what really is what. So we start of with a…See More

Love Notes for Valentines Day

Valentine's Day will be here on the 14th. 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…See More

February; Fire and Ice

They say that February was made the shortest month because everybody wants it to be OVER WITH from the start! 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 for Imbolc

Welcome to our celebration of 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!…See More

Happiness!

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! Happiness is amorphous. It's hard to define, and sometimes it's hard to know if we really have it. But when we DO have happiness in our lives it truly is a Shiny thing. So this week we're going to look at just what is meant by "happines", and we'll look at it from different perspectives - religious, or spiritual;…See More
