  • The Stars of Spring
  • Listen:
  • This week let's give Spring a true Welcoming, as we talk about The Stars of Spring - The Spring Triangle, in particular.

    You may not know The Spring Triangle because it's less attention-grabbing than the Winter Circle and the Summer Triangle. But it becomes visible as early as February, and by early April, it's stars are all up by mid-evening. So, when you see the Spring Triangle is a harbinger for the warm springtime air.

    The Spring Triangle is made up of three of the sky’s brightest stars: Regulus, Arcturus and Spica. We'll talk about each of these stars in detail.

    And we'll join John Reade as he shows us how to learn about the Spring Constellations!

  • Celebrating
  • Listen:
  • Astronomically, the Equinox occurs on Sunday, March 20. We'll be talking about the history of Spring Equinox - the role that it has played in cultures down the ages:

    So, we'll talk about the Norse Goddess Eoster. Is she a bonefide Goddess, or just a fiction created by one author? Does it matter, really?

    Plus ya can't talk about this time of the year without mentioning Rabbits & Eggs; and, of course, the Balance of Light and Dark.

    The Spring Equinox marks the point in the solar year when day and night are of equal duration, and the daytime once again becomes longer than night.

    In Pagan mythology it marks the time when The God, who was reborn at the Winter Solstice, is now coming into young adulthood and is - awakening to his sexuality.

  • Due Consideration for March
  • Listen:
  • Lets give a big warm welcome to the month of March! It seems to be the month everybody loves to hate! Everybody wants Spring to finally come, but there is still so many more weeks to wait! So, let's give March some due consideration. We'll see if I can maybe help you get a different perspective on this time of the year.

    We'll be talking about the folklore of the March Hare. Plus, I have an Irish Story of Magick which I'll be reading called "The Boy and the Hare".

    And, of course we would be remiss for not mentioning March 17th - which we will do! We'll talk about St. Patrick and the PAGAN "snakes".

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
