  • The Magick of Masking
  • Listen:
  • This week here on The Spiral Dance, let's create Magick through Masking. If you're going to a Halloween party, what will you GO AS?

    We all wear masks, although the extent to which we layer ourselves or are aware of them varies greatly.

    Masks are a familiar and vivid element in many folk and traditional pageants, ceremonies, rituals and festivals, and are often of an ancient origin.

    One reason for wearing a mask is to pretend to be someone or something else. The mask can be a kind of language that expresses the emotion of the figure one chooses to create.

    And for this week's Spiral Dance Spell of the week, we'll examine The Mask of the Unified Self

  • The Stars of Autumn
  • Listen:
  • This week here on The Spiral Dance, let's look skyward and see what's up there.

    Every season brings different views of the Heavens, and Autumn is no different. And, the Stars of Autumn bring their own stories and myths. So to start this week, I have a poem written back in 1819 by the English Romantic poet, John Keats. In his poem, "To Autumn" he captures the feeling and spirit of this season.

    Then we'll talk a bit about Astronomy itself, and one view of how why people started making Constellations in their minds.

    Then I want to talk about the Real Stars of Autumn; The Great Square of Pegasus, Cassiopeia and Draco the Dragon.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!

  • Water Magick for Autumn
  • Listen:
  • This week we look at some of the Autumn season's important associations.

    Water is one of the elements in ancient Greek philosophy, and in Occult circles it's associated with the Western Quarter of the Circle, and with the season of Autumn. So we'll look at how and why Water got associated with the Autumn as we tie in some of their similar Magickal Properties.
    Then we'll take a walk into an Autumn Garden with Ellen Dugan, well known herbalist and Kitchen Witch.

    And I have a YouTube presentation from HearthWitch, called "Magickal Waters?Water Witchcraft 101"

    Finally, what can be more Autumnal then the good old hooty owl. We'll look at the way people around the world have regarded the owl through myth and legend.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
