The Metaphysical Properties of Stones – Attuning with Stones

I personally believe stones are a gift from the earth and have power and wisdom inside of them that reflect Goddess. They vibrate with the pulse of life that reflects Goddess - but the subtle little electric pulse really doesn't begin to explain why a piece of Labradorite is protective or why black Hematite can absorb negative energies. It is only when one accepts that we are all connected and that by becoming one with the reflection of Goddess...

Sabbats – The Wheel of the Year

The pagan Wheel of the Year is marked by eight Sabbats, spaced approximately every six weeks throughout the year. Four of these Sabbats represent the position of the solar calendar (either solstice or equinox), and four fall at what are called the “cross quarters.” These ancient dates mark the middle of each season, where the old begins to fade into new. Yule For many pagans, Samhain marks the first Sabbat. For me, however, the Wheel of the Year begins at Yule,...

Goddess Eos

I greet Thee, Eos Goddess of the Dawn, who brings the newborn day; the stars are gone, and fled before Thy face; both Sleep and Night are routed by Thy torch, and put to flight. The flowers are awakened by Thy dew, and turn toward the light, for You renew their life; so also may Thy dew revive my soul today with thanks to be alive. You care for all that's fresh and young, so care for me, to...

Goddess Diana

Diana,  the Roman Goddess, was known by many names including Queen of Heaven, the Great Goddess; Lunar Virgin; Mother of Animals; Lady of Wild Creatures; and the Huntress. Diana, as the Roman Moon-Goddess, was originally worshipped on the mountain Tifata near Capua and in sacred forests. Later she was given a temple in the working-class area on the Aventine Hill, where she was mainly worshipped by the lower class (plebeians) and the slaves, of whom she was the patroness....

History of Imbolc and an Imbolc Ritual

Imbolc is third of the Sabbats celebrated in the Wheel of the Year. Celebrated on the 1st or 2nd of February, this day marks astrologically the day directly between Yule, the Winter Solstice, and Ostara, the Spring Equinox. February is a harsh and bitter month. In old Scotland, the month fell in the middle of the period known the Wolf-month; it was also known as the Dead-month. This is the time of year when the season is still cold...

Goddess Demeter

The name Demeter means “Earth Mother” or “Grain Mother” and is deep-rooted in the mythology of Minoan Crete. The Latin title “Dia Mater” (Mother Goddess) was used to describe Her in Rome. To the Greeks, Goddess Demeter was Mother to all that lived on blessed Earth. Goddess Demeter was also called Goddess Ceres by the Romans. Who is Goddess Demeter? Goddess Demeter stands a tall, beautiful woman in a flowing white gown. Snakes are often imaged with Her, the snake being...

The Moon Phases – Using Moon Energy in your Spells

The diagram shows the Moon in different positions along its orbit around the Earth. The Sun is off in the distance, lighting the Earth-Moon system. At any position, half of the Moon is illuminated by the Sun (the light side of the Moon), and half is not (the dark side). Also, half of the Moon is visible to the Earth (the near side of the Moon), and half is not (the far side). As the Moon moves around the...

Understanding Chakras

There are many studies of energy, Goddess, and magick. There are books, covens, and teachers. There are methods taught, tools assigned, and rituals preformed. There are as many thoughts given as there are names for the different paths. What is real for one is not truth for another. It is endless. There is one very important thing to remember – do not get lost in the translation of others – Be true to yourself and seek within for what you...

Foundations of Magick

Magick has been defined as ‘ The Art of Causing Change in Accordance with Will”. We cannot reach out directly upon the material level and touch the things of tomorrow, for, upon this level, they are yet. We can, however, enter today, a subjective tomorrow in which we may touch the astral foreshadowing of those things, to bring them “nearer to desired will”. The mere naming of this mystery commands all reverence and circumspection; for, in this, we pierce...

What is Karma?

Although many people in the West are often heard to talk of ‘negative’ or ‘bad’ Karma, few people truly understand it. Deeds and Intentions Karma basically involves our own deeds and intent, and the condition of our Karma is a reflection of whether those deeds and intentions were either good or bad. It does, though, probably help to learn that the concept of Karma often concerns those who have beliefs that involve reincarnation. This is because we can have bad Karma,...
