  • Summertime, Fire and the South
  • Listen:
  • Let's take advantage of these Hot Summer Days! We'll head off to the Southern Quarter and do some Fire Magick!.

    We'll take a look at the Qualities that the Element of Fire posseses; how they're used in Occult Traditions.

    Does that sound like Pyrolatry to you? If you worship Fire it just might. Fire is worshipped by itself in many cultures, but more commonly it's associated with Fire Dieties. As you might expect, examples abound.

    Along all these lines I want to share with you a -sort of poem - or maybe a sort of poetic Blog. It was written by Sage Sweetwater back in '09. It's called "Pyruodulia and Dissolution".

    Then finally; part and parcel to Fire is the condition of Light. So I have a guided meditation for you. This is presented by Bente Hesan, and it's called "Luminescent Reflections". I think you'll enjoy listening to this.

  • A Midsummer Celebration
  • Listen:
  • Blessed Litha to everyone here in the northern half! The sun is high in the sky, the air is all warm and friendly. Let's stay up real late, then we can build some fires and roll them down the hills!.

    It's been done forever, it's still being done now and it will always be done. We'll talk about where the word Litha comes from and what the holiday means for modern Pagans. Also, interestingly, Midsummer continues to be very important in mainstream societies in different cultures around the world! There are even some sects of Christianity that are nutty enough to sanction it!

    Here's to the sun, and to the God who lives in all of us.

  • Fruit in Myth and Magick
  • Listen:
  • This week here on The Spiral Dance, we look at the role that Fruit plays in myth and magick.

    Fruit appears in myths from around the world. Often it is a symbol of abundance, associated with goddesses of fertility, plenty, and the harvest.

    And, as you may expect, many of the most significant fruits in world mythology, such as the apple, have different meanings to different cultures. We'll take a short look at many of these.

    Also, we'll learn how To Use Fruit Symbolism for Good Feng Shui

  • Amulets and Talismans
  • Listen:
  • For this week's show I want to talk about a specific part of the World of Magick; Amulets and Talismans.

    And you know, the plural of Talisman is not TalisMEN. The plural of talisman is in fact talismans.

    Well, anyway, what's so great about talisMANS, or amulets, for that matter? Simply the fact that they've always been around and we use them to this very day. In fact people in mainstream religions knowingly use them.

    So, we're going to try to delinate the difference between an amulet and a talisman. Then we'll look at examples of amulets and talismans down the ages.

    Then, I'll have a story for you; a traditional Scotish story called, "The Prince, The Fox and the Sword of Light". It's a story where objects are doing magickal things with a specific purpose - so that's sort of talismanY - RIGHT?

    Be well! Do good! Enjoy the show!
