  • Happiness!
  • Listen:
  • Are you among the Shiny Happy People? Or does the thought make you fear that you could be labled a fuzzy bunny Wiccan? Perhaps you are genuinely happy with your Dark Magicks!

    Happiness is amorphous. It's hard to define, and sometimes it's hard to know if we really have it. But when we DO have happiness in our lives it truly is a Shiny thing.

    So this week we're going to look at just what is meant by "happines", and we'll look at it from different perspectives - religious, or spiritual; philosophical; and Economic or Political.

    Plus I want to share some famous quotes on the subject.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • All Along the Watchtowers
  • Listen:
  • We've all done it; we've created Sacred Space by calling the Spirits of the Four Directions. We stand at each direction and draw the appropriate pentagram and we Invoke the Spirits that have the appropriate character.

    But where does all that mumbo jumbo come from? Some say Gerald Gardner, which is correct to a point. Others say that Witches have been doing that on their own and in secret, like, forever - which is really not at all true.

    So this week we're going to find out who or what the Watchtowers are and where they came from.

    They may or may not have something to do with Archangels, and Archangels may or may not be a Christian thing. Don't worry; I will not leave you in suspense for long.

    But, like everything else, The Watchtowers DO have something to do with Stars; and so does the story of Orpheus, and his Lyre. We'll see how those tie together.

    And I also have a spoken word meditation from Ted Andrews, called "The Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram".

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • The Philosopher's Stone
  • Listen:
  • Just what IS the Philosopher's Stone? Where does it come from? Is it even a Stone?

    This question has been bothering people for generations. Some people just give up and say it's just a lot of poetic rhetoric. Others say, "No, look! I've done it! I've got it right here!"

    Some say it's all Devilry, others say it's all God stuff. Well, you can choose as we try to sort it all out.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • The Stars of Winter
  • Listen:
  • Let's gaze into the clear cold night sky as we honor the Stars of Winter. First we look at the Winter Triangle. Stars that make up the Winter Triangle can aid those of us who are spiritually attuned.

    And we go to the Nordic region and honor the Norse goddess Skadi, and the god, Ullr.

    And finally, have you ever noticed the winter sky just seems darker and deeper than the summer? That's not just your imagination! I have a scientific explanation for you.
