December 2020 Episodes:
  • Pub Date: Dec 28, 2020
  • Transition and Trasncend
  • Listen:
  • The January Moon is known as the Cold Moon and the Wolf Moon. It is a time when shedding and cleansing takes place, the old year is released and the energy of the New Year is beginning. This is a time for letting go from the past and starting anew.

    And we'll listen to a talk from Louise Hay on Transcending Your Early Limitations.

    So this week, here on the Spiral Dance, let's work together to make this New Years Transition work so that we could Transcend toward our goals for 2021.

  • Stories for Solstice
  • Listen:
  • Winter is the time for telling stories in many traditions. Because the days were very short and the nights were very long, it was a good time to tell stories. And you would need a good story to get you through those long nights.

    So from modern Norway we have the story of Saint Lucy, and from Iceland we have the Yule, or Christmas, Cat. And from the Jewish tradition, we have Adam and the Winter Solstice, and also The Laviation.

    The Iroquois people have several Solstice stories. I'm going to share with you the story of the 7 Boys, followed by Grandmother Moon

    And I have a couple of spoken word pieces: "The Yule Fearies" and also "The Girl Who Married the Sun"

    And we'll end with an original story from Starhawk: "A Visit to Mother Winter"

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • Welcome Yule!
  • Listen:
  • Yule is a time to set aside animosity between yourself and people with whom you did not get along.

    The Norsemen had a tradition that enemies who met under a bough of mistletoe were obligated to lay down their arms.

    This is a time to set aside your differences, and ponder this Divotional:
    Beneath the Tree of Light and Light, a blessing for this season of Yule,
    to all that sit at my hearth,
    today we are Brothers; we are Family, and I drink to your health.
    Today is a day to offer hospitality to all that cross my threshold, in the Name of the Season

    At Yuletide the Wheel of the Year seems to halt, while Darkness reigns before the return of the sun. In seasonal terms, it's the darkest hour before the dawn.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • The Winter Moons
  • Listen:
  • All the full moons have names, as you know. But during the Winter, the Dark time of the year the moon has an ever stronger effect on us. Each of the Full Moons of December, January, February and March have different qualities. So we'll take a look at each moon's quality.

    Also each of the moons have Goddesses associated with them. Specifically there are sabbats which are sacred to certain goddesses. And so, to my mind anyway, the full moons during those months are great for connecting further with those Goddesses.

    Also, I have for you a Spell that you could perform during the times of the Winter Full Moons to help you call upon the moon's energy to see visions.

    And I also have a recorded Guided Meditation for you from Bente Hensen. This is called "Luminescent Reflection"

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
