Imbolc - Awakening the Spirit

First flowers of early Spring
Nothing is so beautiful as spring -
When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush’s eggs look like low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes lightning to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.
George Manley Hopkins (1844-1889)

The earth is in the slow process of returning back to life after the long winter’s sleep with the first tendrils cautiously making their appearance.  There is the likelihood of frosts, but despite this, early flowers are pushing their way to the surface – snowdrops, dwarf hyacinths, jonquils, early irises and even daffodils are appearing, making the statement that spring is on its way.  A fragile warming of the air can be felt as winter, usually the season of rest and withdrawal, comes to an end.  This is the time of uncertainty.  A sudden frost can kill the new plants and flowers, if they appear too early.  They also run the risk of developing rot with the last of the winter rains.

August Full Moon Meditation and Healing circle

Once the energies of this current full moon have subsided, Full Moon Meditation and Healing circles will be held at Port Adelaide commencing from August with a lunar eclipse and the moon being in Aquarius. 

The energy of the full moon tends to make us purge and release things from our lives.  Therefore it is important that we make sure that we are in control of what we are releasing due to the heightened emotions also experienced around the time of the full moon, otherwise we may regret our decision.  Often the full moon is a time when we reap what we sowed at the new moon, for good or for ill. As such we need to be mindful of what we bring into our own lives.

If you are interested in attending, bookings are essential as there are limited places available. Secure bookings can be made Paypal.

Sympathy for the Devil in Witchcraft?

Upon going through my files, I found this article written by Frater Barrabbas Tiresius, the original of which can be found here.  The article discusses what seems to be an ever-increasing "debate" as to whether the "Satan" or "the devil" can actually be linked to the "Horned God" more traditionally found within initiatory Wytchcraft (ie, Wicca).

For me personally, the two are completely different concepts - however, if one is talking about "Satan", as in Luciferian Craft, or "the devil" as in Traditional Craft, then my understanding is actually yes.  This is because, as far as I am aware, the concepts of the latter as opposed to the more common Christianised concept, is actually different.
