  • The Language of Flowers
  • Listen:
  • This week here on The Spiral Dance, it's all about FLORIOGRAPHY - the Language of Flowers!

    Interest in floriography soared in Victorian England and in the United States during the 19th century, but Meaning has been attributed to flowers for thousands of years.

    And so, for springtime, lets look at the magick of 3 springtime flowers; the rose, the tulip, and the dandelion.

    Also, while the Snowdrop is more a HARBINGER of spring rather than a Spring Flower, I have a traditional story from Hans Christian Anderson called, The Snowdrop - it's a good story all year round!

  • Spring Cleaning
  • It's time for Spring Cleaning!

    The idea of Spring Cleaning actually goes all the way back to ancient Egypt. We'll take a look at why Spring has become the time when we Clean House.

    And, while House Cleaning IS TERRIBLY, BORINGLY mundane, it does have magickal implications, and so we'll talk about some ways we can bring our Magick into our chores in some very powerful ways.

    While we're clearing out our attics, let's look for Crafty Ways to Rummage and Recycle. Afterall, "Repair, Re-fashion and Recycle" should be the watch words of the modern Pagan, right?

    But in the midst of all that work, we should take the time to stop and smell the flowers. So we'll talk about some Pagan ways for "Herbalism and Herbal Healing".

    And we'll also listen to Morganna Davies, with her story, "The Little People and the Hawthorne Tree"

  • Inner Child / Outer Child
  • Listen:
  • This week, it's Kids' stuff here on The spiral Dance! Our theme is The Inner Child and the Outer Child.

    What does the Inner Child mean to you? Do you feel trustful toward your Inner Child?
    These are the sorts of questions we'll be examining in the first part of the show.

    Then, after we get our Inner Child straight, we'll discuss two issues for real kids:
    First, A Welcoming, Naming and Blessing Ritual for newborns, then A Coming of Age ritual to Adulthood for adolescents

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • Spring Visions
  • Listen:
  • I'm dedicating this weeks show to one of the Five Cardinal Elements, the Element of Air. It's a good topic for April because, by many traditions, Air is associated with Springtime and Day's Beginning.

    Usually associated with Men's Mysteries, Air is most often thought of as on the Mental Plane.

    The Romans gave the month of April it's name, which they called, Aprilis. For the Romans, it signifies a time of unfolding leaves and flowers.

    So we'll take a look at the Season of Spring - from the physical, meteorlogical sense to the cultural meanings that Springtime carries with it around the world.

    On the Witche's Pyramid, the expression of Air is "To Know". So, let's look at the Element of Air. And because it's associated with Men's Mysteries, we'll look at some Air Gods.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
