Honoring the Goddess Aphrodite on Her February Feast Day

Leave Crete, Come here, Come to the holy place Come to the sacred grove. Your altars are smoking with incense. Cold water sings through the fruited trees, Everything is shaded under the bower of roses And from the shimmering radiance of leaves, an enchanted sleep drops down. Here is a meadow of spring flowers where horses graze and a soft wind gently breaths. Come Aphrodite, pour your nectar into our golden cups In grace make […] Read more »

Brighid – Ancient Mother of Scotland {Jude Lally}

Even as a child I was aware of the presence of the old ones whose voices became clearer the deeper we moved into silence of the hilltops. The same voices still speak to me and now decades later I know their names and stories. To me Brighid is one of the ancient mothers of Scotland […] Read more »

Celebrating Imbolc and the Goddess Brigid on Her Day

“The Sun’s path has returned to where it was at Samhain. Take some time to notice the quality of the light, for it is the same now as that shimmering magical glow of late October.

We celebrate the first stirrings of Spring.” […] Read more »

Blessings of Vasant Panchami – Happy Birthday Saraswati – February 1!

Rivers of power flowing everywhere. Fields of magnetism relating everything. This is your origin. This is your lineage.
