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

Transition and Transcend

The January Moon is known as the Cold Moon and the Wolf Moon. It is a time when shedding and cleansing takes place, the old year is released and the energy of the New Year is beginning. This is a time for letting go from the past and starting anew. So this week, here on the Spiral Dance, our theme is Transition and Transcend. Let's work together to make this New Years Transition work so that we could Transcend toward our goals for 2017.Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show! Some of the music you'll…See More

Stories for Solstice

Well, of course Spring will return, and the sun's gonna shine! We all know that! But, knowing is not always enough. We often need, or want, STORIES in order to believe it. So, this week is dedicated to Stories for the Winter Solstice. The mystery of darkness and divine light belongs to each of us and to the world. We are the world waiting in the darkness and we are the light waiting to be born. Winter is the time for telling stories in many traditions. Because the days were very short and the…See More

The Winter Moons

This week here on The Spiral Dance, we celebrate the Full Moons of Winter. All the full moons have names, as you know. But during the Winter, the Dark time of the year the moon has an ever stronger effect on us. Each of the Full Moons of December, January, February and March have different qualities. So we'll take a look at each moon's quality. This year's December full moon is on the 13th. Technically it's still Autumn, but so what? Also each of the moons have Goddesses associated with them.…See More

Reincarnation; Where Ya Been? Where Ya Goin?

Some believe, some don't. Some say that know if for a fact, that they've experienced their past lives. I don't make such claims myself, although I've experienced things that have given me pause for thought. So I've got a poem on Reincarnation from the pen of Aleister Crowley. And I've got some info on how why and where the concept of Reincarnation developed. We think of Reincarnation as an Eastern philosophy. But it can be found here in the West before the followers of the Abrahamic god decided…See More

Living the Dark

This week here on The Spiral Dance, we give the Dark of the Year a true Welcoming. We all know it's rediculous to be afraid of the Dark, but cultural associations with Darkness remain strong, and it seems almost natural to be uncomfortable with this time of the year.. So, we'll talk about the gifts that this time of the year bring us - such as much needed rest! And much needed introspection as well. And we'll take a look at the Dark Side of Your Moon. You know when the Dark of your Moon is…See More

Pagans and Ethics

This week, let's take a look at Pagan Ethics. I promise, we'll HARM NONE!. A good place to start is to examine just what do we mean by Ethics in the first place. When did we start thinking about Ethics? What does it mean for us personally, or as a society, or, really, what does it mean for us a satient beings? Is the consideration Ethics soley a condition of being human? The acedemic study of Ethics and its connected philosophies, has divided Ethics up into dozens of different Types, and we'll…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

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

Tales Told Out of School; Urban Myths

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 11:09am 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…

Love Notes for Valentine's Day

Posted on February 14, 2017 at 4:56pm 0 Comments

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…

February; Fire and Ice

Posted on February 7, 2017 at 11:49am 1 Comment

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…

A Celebration of Imbolc

Posted on January 31, 2017 at 4:21pm 0 Comments

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…
