A Summer Solstice Sunrise Observance Ritual

Summer Solstice Sunrise from the Water Summer Solstice Sunrise Progression from the Water at Yellow Creek State Park on the Summer Solstice 2017

My alarm goes off at 4:00am.  I’m conveniently camping right along the lake shore, after having spent the evening watching the sunset on the eve of the summer solstice with members of our grove. My kayak is ready to launch, and I roll out of my sleeping bag and slip it quietly into the still, dark water. The starry heavens are brilliant in their glory, the moon a crescent low in the sky. But just as I begin to paddle, the first light on the horizon is present. The mists rise up from the lake water–the lake is warm like bath water even though the air itself is much cooler on this summer solstice morning. I paddle through the mist, finding a good spot from which to watch the sun rise. The lake…

First New Moon of Summer

By Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Greetings dreamers, healers, artists and moon people, we now enter our  first of “Three Moons of Summer” which begins June 13, 2018 and then the Summer Solstice, Thursday, June 21st(Northern Hemisphere 3:07 am pdt). Our three moons of Spring have completed with six intentions total and I am sure you did your workings to become more aware of your fears even if you didn’t approach them yet. Even a small amount of what you are personally working on with more understanding helps alleviate some stress. Review your last three intentions and full moon release intentions and review the insights you have at the door of the summer moons.

With the solstice, we meet the second half of the season, the “Season of Fire”. For those unfamiliar with my terminology, I work with the way our ancestral past did under grandmothers leadership (long ago), before we…

Third Full Moon of Spring

Honoring the Ancestors of Land, Tradition, and Blood

The Druid's Garden

As the world  (where I am at, at least!) gets bathed in frost, as the plants wither and die, as the trees bathe themselves in color and then drop their leaves, as the cold wind blows and as the darkness sets in, we in the druid tradition–and in any other traditions–turn to think about the ancestors. In this post, we’ll explore the global traditions surrounding honoring the dead that tie to August-October and honoring the dead to see similarities, we’ll discuss three types of ancestors the druid tradition recognizes, and then we’ll explore ways to honor the ancestors.

Food for the Ancestors! Food for the Ancestors!

Global Ancestral Traditions

When you start digging into ancestor traditions around the world, some striking similarities seem to emerge.

  • The Mexican Day of the Dead, which is a blending of European traditions and Aztec honoring of the dead, goes from Oct 31 – Nov 2. As part of…

Muses

secretsoftheserpent

Muses are inspirational Goddesses in Greek mythology. There is some confusion as to the true number of Muses. I have seen as little as three and as many as nine. The confusion comes from Alexander the Great and his generals making true wisdom nonsense, so the average person would not understand. Muse comes from the Greek ‘mousa’, which is a type of Goddess and literally means art or poetry. Solon says Muses were a “key to a good life”. Pindar says “to have a Muse is to excel in arts”. Muses became associated with temples, springs, fountains and caves, but later the sites were all redirected to the Apollo cult.

Salamander

secretsoftheserpent

I love the symbol of the salamander. The salamander is a symbol cloaked in mystery. This symbol is another alchemical symbol that everyone is taking literally. I even read an article about how the ancients were wrong about the salamander. In truth the symbol of the salamander was a battle of wits between ancient philosophers. The word salamander means ‘fire within’. This should have been the first hint the ancients were not talking about the natural salamander.

Giants

secretsoftheserpent

I have shown in previous posts how giants in myths are usually showing a very big ego, but myths go several layers deep with truth and giants are no exception. In Lemurian Magic, I showed how an advanced alien race created the human race. They created a first race of humans that were just as big and smart as themselves. In all the myths the giants are frequently in conflict with the gods. In religious texts, the Nephilim, are seen as evil fallen angels. Did these giants exist? This post will show proof they did exist, but in no way were they evil. The idea that they were evil comes from lies of patriarch religions.

Taking up the Path of the Bard, Part II

The Druid's Garden

Creativity is the singing of the soul.  When we create, we draw from the deepest parts of who we are and express ourselves to the world.  The act of creation, the drawing forth and connecting to our inner selves, is the joy involved in creativity.  Having something nice in the end, to me, seems like a bonus! I believe this act of channeling the awen is not only inherently spiritual, it is also part of what it means to be human.  But to allow our souls to really sing, we have to grow comfortable with what we create, we have to set aside our judgement, and and to grow our skills as bards.

Last week, I explored what the bardic arts are, the cultural challenges associated with the bardic arts, and some ways community groups circumvent said challenges.   We looked at the creative spirit of children, and how that spirit…

Animal Spirit and Medicine: Animal Spirits

Good Witches Homestead

Animal Spirits work with us in many capacities and on a variety of levels. As Totems, they reflect aspects of our personalities teaching us to know ourselves better and understand our interrelationships. Power Animals are much the same; they are the dominant Totem and merge in a sacred spiritual manner with our inner spirit. Guides are not always animals but they can be; these creatures guide us through spiritual realms and to our teachers showing the way to enlightenment. Some Animal Spirits act as messengers coming once or twice in a lifetime while others are frequent visitors. All these capacities reflect their abilities to impart a wide variety of messages on many different levels. All Animal Spirits are our teachers in one way or another. They can act as protectors giving us warnings, or defending us in other ways. While they teach us about ourselves and our lives, their highest…
