The Royalty of Basilisk and Regulus

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –  Always keep in perspective that what was deemed evil in the Patriarch by religion, was really Holy in the Goddess Cultures and Dragon is the best example of this. The Chinese and a few others honor the power of the Dragon but the Western, Euro and Indo Euro wanted all male power and thus killed woman’s (Goddess) Dragons. Basilisk were the same. Basilisk, its Latin name is Regulus, one of the four Royal Stars of Persia. Other names include Baselicoc, Basiliscus, Cocatris, Cockatrice, Kokatris, Sibilus. 


The basilisk is usually described as a crested celestial snake and sometimes as a rooster with a snake’s tail. It is called the Queen (Sibilus), the Queen of the Serpents because its Greek name means “royal and imperial” which is probably closer to the Persian Royal Star Regulus than any little king. The sibyls were oracles in Ancient Greece and the…

Druidry for the 21st Century: Plant-Based Spiritual Supplies and Global Demand

The Druid's Garden

Can you even imagine druidry without plants or trees?  Plants and trees are some of our strongest allies for the work that we do, and are often connected to almost everything that we do spiritually. Plant spirits are teachers, guides, and allies.  From before we had recorded history in any culture, the plant spirits were there, growing with us, guiding us, healing us, and supporting us on our journey. Today’s modern druid practice continues that tradition: we burn plants for smoke cleansing, clearing, and helping to energize spaces. We use trees as part of divination and sacred rites. We use plants as healers, for magical healing and physical healing, and to connect with on deep levels.  Plants have long been friends of humans–and have long walked beside us, hand in hand, as we do our sacred work.  And today, we’ll explore ways we can offer that same kind of honor…

Magic and it’s Wounded Soul – Goddess Melinoë

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming – I wanted to look up some Magic Gods and Goddesses to see if there are traces and clues to the ties of karma that real living magicians and sorcerers are connected to in the eras of our past history. Magical Tradition basically is a body of spell-casting techniques, or philosophical or religious alchemy beliefs pertaining to one particular view or method of magic or occultism. Alchemy can involve math and symbols and even the ancient demon bowls from long ago to attack women in power, by the rising Jewish men’s in their religions. 

Most magical endeavors today are from the Middle Ages, antiquity texts written and put into form, by Pagans, the Metaphysical or Esoteric traditions. Free magic and human magic are two completely different things, for free magic involves mother earth, energy and elements of nature, and human magic unfortunately involves past life…

Ice Ritual for Ostara

Wylde and Green

Wednesday is Ostara, Spring Equinox and Thursday is the full Lenten Moon (the last full moon of winter). You will hear a lot of talk about balance at this time of year, with light and dark being equal, but it never feels balanced to me, it feels like a battle, with bitterly cold days, sandwiched between warm, bright days with one storm rolling in after another, as banks of high and low pressure buffet against each other. The winter was kind this year, so perhaps he is reluctant to leave so soon.

I believe a ritual is a little path you follow, that winds through your own particular internal woods, and what makes it meaningful is how it resonates with you. The path being as important as the destination. We don’t follow the rhythms of nature any more to survive, but that doesn’t mean we don’t feel them…

Intuition

secretsoftheserpent

We are equipped with a fantastic brain.  It is the greatest computer ever created.  It is the best ever logical analyzer.  We as a human race think in our logical minds.  Is it possible for us to grasp things with our subconscious mind?  Yes.  We have to allow ourselves to use our subconscious  instead of interfering with it.   You must wake up and see the Goddess dancing right in front of you!

Spring Equinox Rituals: Rituals of Looking Back and Looking Forward

The Druid's Garden

Sometimes, when we are hiking on a trail, we are in a hurry to get somewhere–that far off vantage point, that mile marker on the map, or just seeing what is over the next horizon. I remember hiking with some friends who regularly backpacked; they were so intent on speeding through the woods to their goal and putting the miles behind them that they  left me behind at multiple points as I got off the trail to explore something. This “speeding towards a goal” is, perhaps, part of who we are as humans, and certainly, a product of Western Civilization, which is so growth and progress oriented.  Even with our spiritual practice, we can be so intent on focusing on a goal (that next grade or degree, for example) that we forget about the journey itself.  On this trail, the day I took this photo, my intuition told me to…

Slavic Moons and Months

Elder Mountain Dreaming

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming – My dedication in life as a Dreamer was to be free, to be healthy, to pay my real karmic debt and live to tell about it. As an elder now, I begin to receive my past experiences with hindsight that flows into wisdom, through expressions of creativity. The path we all walk is long and unexpected and the moon path is the most unexpected of them all.

We have now completed a 2500 year cycle of the sun cult (patriarch, Regulus in Leo) and now, as those doors are permanently closed, many challenges await us as we navigate this world of ours in the messy state its in. It may not seem like it on the surface. but the moon time is slowly and steadily rising to serve the other half of humanity now, the soul people.

You can already see it happening…
