  • The Stars of Winter
  • Listen:
  • This week we gaze at the clear cold night sky as we honor The Stars of Winter. We'll look up to find The Winter Triangle. Stars that are part of the Winter Triangle teach us that their forces can aid in the service to those of us who are spiritually attuned.

    And we take it a step further as we honor two special "stars" of Winter; the Norse Goddess Skadi, and the Norse God, Ullr.

    Now, did you know that Scandinavia may have been named after the Goddess Skadi. Some theorize that Scandinavia could mean "Skadi's island".

    And finally, if you ski, then you've probably heard of Ullr. In Norse mythology, Ullr was considered a superb archer and skier, and was the god to invoke when engaging in single combat.

    Then we'll talk some science and discover why the night sky of winter is so much brighter than it is in summer. It's not your imagination!

    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 we'll hear from Lon Milo Duquette as he talks about "The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram".

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
