    Rowan Supermoon Tarot Spread

    Hello, Brightest Blessings! I wanted to share February’s Supermoon Tarot Spread Rowan Moon Tarot Spread February’s full moon has several names: ROWAN MOON, ICEMOON, QUICKENING MOON, STORM MOON, HUNGER MOON, SNOW MOON. The moon grows large here in Paris, Idaho. I’ve had the pleasure to do rituals with the Supermoon, in a few key spots here in Paris.

I’ve even gone to our local little cemetery, which is on a high hill overlooking the rural city below, such a sight to be hold. SUPERMOON energy is Strong and Very Powerful. This can…

    Surrendering to the Spiral Dance of Depression

    (art by Emma Strybis)     From galaxies in the sky to diminutive shells on the beach, the spiral is found extensively in the natural world. Its shape and form of a coiled serpent has been used since ancient times as a tool for growth and transformation. The spiral is a guide for entering deep into one’s consciousness and the unknown, and then extending far out into the heavens. It is crucial to surrender to this journey until the exhausted paradigm dissolves in the depths of the psyche and its energy is released to give birth to a new reality…The spiral announces a descent to the depths and a rebirth.…

    GoodGod!

    Meet the Gods: Cernunnos     Merry meet. Cernunnos is one of the Ancient Ones, as old as the earth. The nature and fertility god is said to have been born of the All Mother Anu, working his magic in the wildwood as the first humans on earth came to be. He was part of evolution, seen “as a shape-shifting, shamanic god of the Hunt” in prehistoric times, according to the article, “Cernunnos – Ancient Celtic God” by J. M. Reinbold. His image was painted on cave walls and carved into cliffs. People dressed in skins, bones and feathers danced to communicate with him. They still do a dance in…

    Book Review – Beyond the North Wind by Christopher McIntosh

    Book Review Beyond the North Wind by Christopher McIntosh 256 Pages     The Forward of this book is written by Hilmar Örn Hilmarsson, who is the High Priest of the Icelandic ÁSATRÚ Association. I found the story of his meeting and developing friendship with Mr. McIntosh, at times, whimsical and tender at the same time. But I also found the respect that runs very deep in that friendship. This book covers a subject, Hyperborean, that I used to talk about with my father. When I was seven years old, my dad would talk about all the different world beliefs that he had heard or read. He would talk about…

    (Image via Unsplash) Brigid, who is also known as Persephone Rises like an epiphany From the womb of Winter’s death. One of the year’s turning points is Imbolc, celebrated at the start of February; roughly half way between winter solstice and spring equinox (in the Northern hemisphere anyway- in the southern hemisphere this would be around the start of August, around the time we are celebrating Lughnasadh). This is the time of year when you really start to notice that yes, the days are getting longer and lighter, and the air is beginning to warm. Imbolc is a celebration of the coming spring, making it through the harshest part of…

    Book Review – One Truth and One Spirit: Aleister Crowley’s Spiritual Legacy by Keith Readdy

    Book Review One Truth and One Spirit Aleister Crowley’s Spiritual Legacy by Keith Readdy 436 Pages     I purposely do not read anyone else’s reviews on a book before I read a book. I do this so that another does not influence my view of the book; I must admit books on Aleister Crowley can be a little dry, and the difficult. But there’s always strange & interesting tidbits that I pick up in the books. Mr. Readdy’s book is a history book. Therefore, it reads like a history book, and if your history buff, that’s fine. I was still able to find a lot of interesting information within…
