All Beliefs are Welcome Here!

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 Constellations in their minds.


Then I want to talk about the Real Stars of Autumn; The Great Square of Pegasus, Cassiopeia and Draco the Dragon.

Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show

Some of the music you'll hear on this weeks show include Nuit:"Unto Whom I Send This Kiss"; Incubus Succubus: "Enchantment"; Kay Gardner: "Invocation"; Wendy Rule: "Frost at Midnight"; Burning Sage: "Dragon" and more.



Maybe you've composed a new poem and would like to hear it on the radio. If you want to submit audio to The Spiral Dance, send me an email. There are basically no rules - just no harsh language, no commercial self-promotion and no Christian-bashing. Please let me know what you think about the show. I'm always open to suggestions; email spiraldance1@ or

Esoteric pagan Star Magick is almost forgotten.there are of course many pagan astronomical Myths but I am not referring to this.

I mean rather the use of star energy in ritual. For example Medieval and Early Modern Witches flew and powered their stangs by the power of the star Algol as us obvious from the iconography of witchcraft. The Welsh tradition contains encoded descriptions of "tantric" star magick rituals as does the Irish tradition

There are also numerous examples of esoteric "Star Gate" Indo-European Mythology. Such rituals are also known from Ancient egypt and Mesopotamian ritual, one of these Mesopotamian practices survived and survives still as the infamous (and highly effective) "fire broom" ritual in traditionalist Witchcraft circles.

There are parallels to early European Star ritual in the Taoist sources and a version of the Wiccan Five Fold Kiss was used for channeling star energy.

Then there is the survival of bronze age star Magick in European tradition along with the Tantric star magick of Breton tradition which is still practiced.

So when we look at the night sky we should realize that there is a whole world of untapped power out there.

I am doing some star gazing tonight. I was looking at the constellation Pegasus, the star that constitutes his right knee, Matar. Matar has a definition, to kill a large number of people indiscriminately, strange.
