Moonlight

    Clutching moonlight from blossoms of lost power, We veil our delicious quiver until we dissolve Into a marvelous, departing flow Pale cherry blossoms arrive in evanescent flight, Carried on beams of alabaster light Through stars, toward the earthly plane, Only to...

And the Wheel Turns Toward Yule

Time feels like it has sped up suddenly this year, with the holidays in full swing I find myself strapped for time more than usual- the home front is a bit topsy turvy right now-  for mostly good reasons, so that has added to the fervor of the season... With this in...

Wheel of The Year- Fall Equinox

The Wheel turns toward Foghar, the Autumnal Equinox, when once again, the day and night at are balanced, and Summer begins to fade toward the dark. The Goddess gives the earth the fruit of her loins, literally with the final ripening of berries, apples, grapes and...

Lammas or Lugnasadh- Is one better?

The First Harvest on the Wheel of the Year is just around the corner.  The beginning of August marks the beginning of the harvest season and the first of three harvest related sabbats for many a pagan.  I have hear most commonly Lammas and Lughnasadh used for the...

The Wheel Turns Toward Lammas

The Wheel turns toward Lammas, or Feast of Bread, when the first harvest begins. The God is transformed into the God of Grain, also known as John Barleycorn. He is now a willing sacrifice as the grain is cut so the people may live and new grain may grow again, for all...

Become Energized by The Solstice

Before I move on to the next Sabbat on the Wheel of the year, I want to share a few thoughts about Litha. Yes, the date has officially passed as of this last weekend. But, it is the start of a new season as our annual calendar reckons it. While I will admit I have...

And the Wheel Turns Toward Summer Solstice

So Beltaine was wonderful and amazing and magical!  Those that were there know of that which I speak, those that were not will hopefully join us another time!  But alas, the comings and goings of festival prep and then returning to mundania sure took a lot outta this...

Fires of Beltaine

Gerald Gardner, with his Bricket Wood Coven is cited as the creator of the Wheel of the Year Calendar. Whether or not one follows a specifically Gardenarian based path or Tradition of Wicca, we modern Pagans have been greatly influenced by the works of Gardner. The...

What I Learned From Chickens

I never thought about the cyclical events that happened each year when I was a new little Witch, burgeoning on the edge of self discovery.  It didn't dawn on me that through my personal studies, I was missing out on a larger sphere of knowledge.  It took the complex...

Ostara, What We Do

To wrap up the part of my blog on Ostara, I want to share with you what Spiral Grove as a coven focuses on within our Ostara ritual, what this time of year and our ritual means to us. As Spring celebrations are dedicated to growth and fertility, there are many rituals...

Seeds, Eggs & Hares…Oh My

When it comes to Ostara, there are three with which I connect with the most. Ostara for me is first and foremost about New Beginnings and Fertile Growth.  Seeds, Hares and Eggs represent all these things.  Seeds.  What is a seed, but a microcosm of the macrocosm of...

13 Things Not To Say To A Pagan

I took a look at Anonywitch’s Thirteen Things Not to Say to a Pagan and just had to give my snark answers to the questions as well.  So here goes: 1) “Do you really fly on a broom?” Like Anonywitch, I really cannot say anything nice to this question. People truly...

Harm None?

Following a Wiccan Based Path, I often think of the last eight words of the Wiccan Rede; An it harm none, do what ye will.  Of course, I have studied the Rede and learned how the rest of Spiral Grove Coven interprets the Rede.  While my definitions of passages may not...

Did you know…

His Holiness the Dalai Lama will be in the states and will be publicizing his talks via webcast?  Because they are live feeds some of the talk times may not be good for you, but they have been converted to Pacific Standard Time for this post. February 20th 6:00 am:...

Hunter vs Hunted

I was puttering around Facebook this morning when I stumbled upon this image that had been shared by a friend.  Mind you, I was a pescatarian for over eight years before my husband was diagnosed with food allergies.  Because we would not have enough nutrients after...

Not Another Brick In The Wall

I do not want to be another brick in the wall.  I don't want to be the kind of person who just walks on by.  I don't want to live my life in ignorant bliss.  I would rather live a life of knowledge, a life of uncompromising growth.  I would rather live a life of...

Dance…. by Seanachai Moonfyre

She Dances in the verdant wood waiting for Her Consort. Long tresses gleam with titian flames, Spiral curls pirouette in sunlight. Crimson lips hint at the flush of her mood, Seductive curves reveal a bounty in Her breasts. Singing in the Summer heat, ready to embrace...

And we’re live!

Whew! I feel like I have run a marathon. But really, I’ve just been sitting at my computer and racking my brain. Putting together this lovely website was not an easy feat even if templates were used as a base. This was surely a labor of love from me to the Community...
