Rebirth Through Darkness: Dark Moon Ritual of Hecate

Purpose
To release yourself to the darkness that has descended upon your life and call upon Hecate to lead you forward and gift you with wisdom and rebirth.
Supplies
• representation of the four elements
• a scrying mirror, bowl of black water, or a cauldron filled with water
• a purple candle to represent spiritual wisdom and the Goddess Hecate
• myrrh resin, mugwort, and dragon’s blood incense combination
• patchouli oil
• a large cloth or blanket that will be used to cover yourself- it may be black to correspond to the dark moon
• Other supplies may be added according to preference.
Timing
To be performed During the dark moon; further timing correspondences could include the dark moon in Scorpio, performing the ritual at midnight, performing the ritual on a Monday or a Saturday, utilizing the planetary hours of the moon and Saturn, and performing the ritual on or around Samhain, or simply when the sun is in Scorpio.
Preparation
• Smudge yourself, the area, and the altar with sage and cedar, and take a purifying bath or shower if desired.
• Anoint yourself with the patchouli oil after the purification on your pulse points.
Ritual
Create sacred space and cast circle using the Sibylline Circle Casting and Consecration of the Elements.
Add a little incense to keep the censor smoking.
Conjure the mirror, bowl of water, or cauldron to be a window between the Worlds using your favorite method or by simply intending that it will be the function of this tool and passing it through the incense smoke.
Cleanse, bless, and consecrate the purple candle to Hecate and spiritual wisdom.
Light the candle and hold it aloft and invoke Hecate:
Invocation to Hecate: 
Dark Goddess of the Crossroads, Hecate, TriVia, She who illuminates the Underworld paths with Her burning torch of inner wisdom. I, your Witch and child, do invoke thee to guide me through the mysteries of life, and the Darkness that weighs upon my heart and soul. On this night of the dark moon, when the black orb sails between the Worlds, liberate me from bondage as I meet the Darkness face to face!
Once you feel the presence of the Dark Goddess, set the candle on the altar behind the scrying tool and sit cross legged on the floor.
Cover yourself from head to toe in the cloth or blanket, ensuring that as little light as possible can come through. Allow yourself to descend into your painful emotions, situations, thoughts, and anything else that has been draining, depleting, and limiting you.
Resist and question nothing. Feel the Goddess guiding you into this Darkness, succumbing to your experiences now. Cry, shake, moan, and take yourself to those places within that you most fear. Hecate is with you, and will protect you, but the experience will still be intense. When you feel as though you have completely descended into the Darkness and all of your pain and fear have surfaced, say:
I sit within the depths of Darkness, in the presence of my fear, pain, and rage. I claim them as my allies, the Teachers that move me to wisdom. I face now the Goddess of Death who consumes all and spares none. Yet She is Also the Goddess of Rebirth who liberates by destroying that which binds, and tears away all that hinders. As I ascend through rebirth, by the grace of the Dark Goddess, I ask for a message from between the Worlds that shall guide me on my path, and a symbol of power that shall be an ally in conquering that which I must.
Slowly remove the blanket or cloth, come onto your knees, and gaze within the scrying tool; the dark mirror of the moon. Allow images, feelings, words, and symbols to arise from the depths of the tool, and remain open to the guidance of Hecate.
When you feel as though you have received the guidance you need and the symbol of power, come to standing and again hold the candle aloft.
Thanking Hecate:
Hecate! Dark Goddess of Death and Rebirth, You have guided me through the Darkness and shattered the illusions that rendered me impotent. I have allied with that which lies in my Shadow, and have been given the power to overcome. Through the womb of the Underworld, I have been liberated and reborn. I honor and thank thee.
Place the candle back on the altar and extinguish it. Thank the Quarters and open the circle. If you used a mirror as your scrying tool, wrap it in black silk and put it away from curious eyes or the light of the sun. If you used a bowl of water or a cauldron, empty the contents onto the ground outside and either keep the bowl or cauldron for future scrying, or purify it later so it may be used for something else. Eat hardy bread, drink lots of water, and write in your Book of Shadows about the ritual and what was experienced. Be sure to record your guidance from Hecate, and the symbol of power. Give yourself time to recover, and readjust.
Hail Hecate!
So Mote it Be!

Banshees

Spirits of Legend and Fantasy: Banshees

When we listen to Irish legends, we often hear about leprechauns. However, leprechauns are only one of many spirits of Ireland. One, much more frightening and morbid, but arguably more interesting creature of legend is the banshee. These ghost-women appeared in many Irish folktales and are as much an element of Ireland’s history as their tiny green-clad counterparts. The following should teach you the basics of what you need to know about banshees.

What Is a Banshee?

A banshee, or Bean Sidhe, is a fairy from Irish folklore whose scream was an omen of death. Her thin scream is referred to as “caoine,” which translates to “keening.” It is said that a banshee’s cry predicts the death of a member of one of Ireland’s five major families: the O’Grady’s, the O’Neills, the O’Briens, the O’Connors or the Kavanaghs. Over time as families blended, it was said that most Irish families had their own banshee. It is also said that the banshees followed their families as they emigrated from Ireland to other places across the globe, though some stayed behind to grieve at the original family estate.

Various versions of the banshee have been described, from a woman with long, red hair and very pale skin to an older woman with stringy, gray hair, rotten teeth and fiery red eyes. She is often depicted with a comb in her hair and this has led to an Irish superstition that finding a comb on the ground is considered bad luck. It is believed that a single banshee can take on any of these forms and shift between them, much like the goddesses of Celtic folklore. Other forms of the banshee include the Bean Nighe and the washer woman, both more attributed to Scotland than Ireland. The Bean Nighe is said to be the ghost of a woman who died during childbirth and would be seen wearing the clothes of the person about to die while the washer woman is dressed like a countrywoman and is cleaning bloody rags on a river shore.

Origins of Bnashees

It is unknown precisely when stories of the banshee first were told, but they can be traced back as far as the early eighth century. It is believed they were based on an old Irish tradition where women would sing a lament to signify one’s passing. This too was referred to as keening. As many keeners accepted alcohol as payment, which the church frowned upon, many have speculated it was these keeners who were punished in the eyes of God and were forced to become banshees. Another factor that likely contributed to the superstitious legend is the cry of the barn owl. In ancient battles, owls would screech and take flight if they noticed an army approaching, which would forewarn the defending army.

History And Mythology of Banshees

There have been several reported banshee sightings, but it is said that if a banshee becomes aware of a human’s presence watching her, she will disappear into a cloud of mist. When she does, it is accompanied by a fluttering sound like a bird flapping its wings. The Irish do not believe the banshee causes death, but merely warns of it. Although during the Middle Ages it was said that the banshee would also protect the souls of those of good heart and deed after they had passed on. The Bean Sidhe is also said to have a sister – the Lianhan Sidhe – who would win the love of mortal men and use it to destroy them.

Stories of Banshees

Many see banshees as entertaining folk lore while others genuinely believe in their existence. Had evidence of banshees consistently coincided with death by long-term illness or other easily-foreseeable causes, there likely wouldn’t be as much support. However, there had been reports of drowning and other sudden deaths of perfectly healthy individuals in the weeks following what was thought to be the sound of a banshee’s cry. The most famous example of this is King James I of Scotland who was murdered soon after he reported having been approached by a strange Irish seer.

2 INGREDIENT PUMPKIN GINGERBREAD


2 INGREDIENT PUMPKIN GINGERBREAD
Author: The Seasoned Mom
Prep time:  5 mins
Cook time:  25 mins
Total time:  30 mins
Serves: 6
 
INGREDIENTS

1 (14.5 ounce) box gingerbread mix (just the dry mix)*
1 cup canned pumpkin (not the sweetened pumpkin pie filling)
Optional: powdered sugar for dusting

INSTRUCTIONS

In a large bowl stir together dry mix and pumpkin until a thick batter forms.
Spread batter in a cast iron skillet, in a round cake pan, or in an 8-inch square baking pan.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

NOTES
*This is a smaller size cake mix than a standard boxed mix. It’s made for an 8-inch square dish, rather than a 13x9-inch dish. If you can’t find the smaller box, then you can use a standard size (18.25 ounce) box of gingerbread mix and use an entire 15-ounce can of pumpkin. Bake in a larger dish until cooked through.

Pentagram, the meaning


Pentagram

 

The meaning behind the Pentagram, a five pointed star, tends to be confused by many who both are familiar and new to witchcraft. This is a common symbol that exists in the neo-pagan Wicca but there are many people who are of the opinion that this symbol is associated with Satan and Satan worship. On the other hand, what many of them fail to realize is that just like an inverted cross is a sign that is associated with devil worship, likewise an inverted Pentagram is also associated with Satanism or evil.

The upright Pentagram is a symbol that the followers of witchcraft or Wicca believe to be a mark that can help in protecting them against the evil. In its intertwined shape, people see the Pentagram as an endless knot and people made used of this on the windows, doors and on the fireplaces in all European houses during the pre-Christian era. The Pentagram is believed to be have been used even by the Sumerian and Egyptian cultures. In fact, there are also proofs that this sign is found on the medicine tools of the Native Americans. This sign is often confused with the hexagram or the Star of David, which is a six-pointed star and the symbol of Judaism. There are many ceremonial magicians who refer to the Pentagram as the Star of the Solomon.

Many people believed that the four points of the Pentagram are water, fire, air and earth. They also believe that the fifth point is the point that prevails over the other points and it represents the spirit. In very simple words, the Pentagram is a symbol that represents four elements that belong to the material world and connected to it is the Spirit that also rules these four elements. When this Pentagram is inside a circle, a symbol of wholeness and unity, it represents that we are connected to the Universe.

There are also some people who are of the opinion that a Pentagram does not have one but three points that are facing in the upward direction. You may or may not know about numerology but the number three is considered to be a number that is associated with harmony. In very simple words, the center point balances the opposite outer points. You will discover that the Celtic love of triads is based on this model. It is because of this that the upper three points that facing in the upward direction while the lower two points are facing in the other direction. This means that the Pentagram represents two opposites that can not be matched or integrated.

There is another view of the upright Pentagram and it is that this symbol represents the most ordinary view of deity in Wicca. It is believed that the three points that lies in the upper direction symbolizes the Goddess in her three-fold facets and these are Crone, Mother and Maiden. The two points that are facing in the opposite direction are the Consort God and the God of Darkness. On the other hand, what you should always remember that even though there are so many interpretations of the Pentagram, you have to know that all the points in this symbol are connected to each other. There are just different parts of the same whole.

Now when the Pentagram is inverted, the meaning of this symbol also changes. It means that the physical word (.i.e. the four elements) dominates over the spirit, which is the fifth element. This is probably the reason why people who worship the devil make use of an inverted Pentagram. On the other hand, what you have to keep in mind that while pagans use the upright Pentagram this does not mean that they worship the evil. This is because the followers of Paganism do not worship Satan or other evil paths for we know what one sows one reaps.

A Gift from my LadyHawk

I received this gift from LadyHawk today on the big bird tree perch in my back acreage.

Hawk Totem Meaning

The hawk spirit animal or totem has several attributes and meanings:

Hawk is the messenger of the spirit world
Use the power of focus
Take the lead when the time is right
Power to see, clear vision
Strong connection with spirit, increased spiritual awareness
Hawk spirit animals belong to the realm of bird medicine. It carries the symbolism that comes with the ability to fly and reach the skies.

The hawk spirit animal as the messenger

The hawk can soar high and reach the heavens effortlessly. As most bird totems, this power animal is often considered as a messenger who brings messages from the spirit world and the unseen.

If you have the hawk as a spirit animal, you may be inclined to play with divination tools and use your intuition to guide your steps in life. Working with the hawk totem could reinforce your ability to rely this type of guidance.

When the hawk shows up in your life, be sensitive to the messages it may carry and be receptive to your own intuition.

Main meaning of hawk totems and the power of focus

Hawk spirit animals invite us to be focused in our daily undertakings. When you feel the presence of the hawk totem, avoid distractions and focus on the task at hand.

At the same time, hawks can soar and fly high in the sky. This animal has the power to provide support in gaining a higher level perspective on any issue or project you undertake. When the hawk appears in your life, it’s perhaps time to be less distracted by the details and focus on the higher perspective. Relying on the hawk power, you can see what’s ahead clearly and defy any obstacles that may be on your way. A specific way the hawk guidance works is to use a high level and yet clear and focused vision to guide your action.

Do you want more abundance and success in your life? Your personal vibration frequency could be the thing holding you back. To start raising your energetic frequency today, you’ll want to download the Energetic Breakthrough Kit from Christie Sheldon. This proven method includes a few things but most of all check out the heart center awakening meditation! Click here to get your free energetic breakthrough kit.

Hawk spirit animals and taking the lead when the time is right

The hawk is also a bird of prey. Having this animal as a spirit guide emphasizes your ability to lead and influence others. When the hawk is present in your life, it could signify that it’s time to take more initiative and being active.

Hawks symbolize the power of observation. This spirit animal’s guidance may also indicate that you have the opportunity to study a situation before taking action. Observe the situation and then act when the time is right.

Hawk spirit animal and power to see

The hawk spirit animal is associated with the power of vision. If you have the hawk as a totem, you have or are developing the ability to see clearly and have strong visions. Perhaps, you even use clairvoyant skills to support your goals in life and communication with others.

Just like the hawk can see in great detail at great distances, you maybe able to perceive what others do not. You may have an affinity with piercing life great mysteries and divination in one form or another.

The hawk and connection with the spiritual realms

When you have the hawk as a spirit animal, you may have a natural inclination to receive visions, either in dreams or awake. Your extra sensory abilities and intuition are supported by the power of this animal.

The hawk totem is strongly connected to the spiritual realms. When it shows up in your life, you may be called to pay attention and experience rapid spiritual development. As you develop your relationship with your totem, you may be inspired to feel your connection with spirit more fully.

Hawk symbolism in ancient traditions

In numerous traditions, the hawk has a strong relationship with the world of the gods. Some of this symbolism has persisted in modern mythology and beliefs. In Ancient Egypt, the belief was that a hawk-headed spirit called “ba” would fly off a mummy to come back among the living as a hawk or swallow. The hawk symbolized a part of the soul that would be freed up after death and come back to the world of the living in the shape of a bird. It was also the animal of choice for the god Horus, god of the sky, who was represented with a hieroglyph depicting a falcon or hawk.

The popular belief in more modern times that birds like hawks or owls are announcer of death may be rooted in this myth. For the Greeks, the hawk and the eagle were associated with the god Jupiter, king of the gods. The bird is strongly connected with the realm of the gods.

RIP Rikki

Conjuring Celestial Beings, Angels, Demons, and Elemental Spirits.

 

From the most heavenly of spirits to the monsters of the of the great abyss. These entities can all be summoned to do your bidding or answer your questions. Take warning to heart. These creatures are very powerful and you could end up doing your self more harm than good.~WARNING!~ This information is for educational purposes only! I do not suggest that you attempt to do any of the following. This is not a detailed set of instructions. This is a basic outline of certain things that are needed and performed. This is simply and example, nothing more.When a magician gets started he usually performs the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (Invoking version at the beginning and the banishing at the end of the ritual), and the Middle Pillar Ritual. These are the most important things he would do in order to protect himself from these Beings. Remember the attitude he gets from a spirit depends on the type of spirit he would so choose to conjure up! In this example the Sorcerer would conjure the Spirit "VAU-AEL". He is the spirit who will give thee all kinds of pleasant visions. He will serve you well in all that you wish to know. This spirit is taken from "the Grimoire of Armadel".In this example we would be conjuring this spirit on to the astral plane and not onto this physical plane. We would be able to see the spirit by gazing into the black mirror within the Triangle of the Solomon. He puts on his robe and lights the incense and the candles. He then sits in the middle of the magic circle. Here is the sigil of the entity... Seal of "VAU-AEL"Holding the Sigil of the spirit in your hands gaze into it and repeat the name of the spirit over and over for at least 10 min. Then gaze into the black mirror (or crystal ball) and concentrate while reciting the following...I evoke and conjure thee, O spirit "VAU-AEL" by the Supreme Majesty - the true God who is known by the names of YOD HEH VAV HEH (yod-heh-vahv-heh), ADONAI (ah-doe-ney), EHEIEH (eh-hey-yay), and AGLA (ah-gah-lah) to appear before me in this mirror (or crystal ball) in a fair and comely shape.Continue to gaze into the mirror until the image of the entity becomes clear to see. When you can see the entity then ask it "what is thy name?" If it gives the correct answer then ask it to sign its name in the space surrounding it. If the spirit turns out to be someone else then you can ask it to leave or ask what its purpose of coming before you. If it is the correct spirit then you must welcome it by saying...In peace I welcome you, O spirit "VAU-AEL",and in the name of the Most High I command you to stay within this mirror until you are dismissed, to speak honestly and to answer all questions truthfully that I put before you.Now you may ask the questions that you wish to put before him. Make sure that you are polite and not rude in any way, for you must treat these spiritual beings with the total respect. You may also command it do do certain tasks for you, but if you ask it to do things that might harm someone then you will at sometime suffer the penalties of KARMA. What goes around comes around. You don't want to have something bad come around and bite you in the ass now do you? Try to do only good tasks and things of a positive nature! Once you are done with the spirit, you must license him to depart. Take note that you must give this dismissal even if the entity does not show itself, for it could actually be there and you not know it and then you would have a spirit hanging around you which could be your demise.Here is the dismissal...Go in peace and return to your sphere of origin, O Spirit "VAU-AEL" by the authority of the True God, I command thee to harm none as you depart, and to be ready to come quickly if called upon again.*You will also want to do the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram and the Banishing Ritual of the Hexagram! This is a Must!*This ritual can be used to conjure Celestial, Demonic, Elemental, or Angelic entities to do your bidding.Afterwards you would need to write down everything that happened in your experience. You would need to keep a journal of all these events and what took place. You will want to memorize these conjuration's and not have to read them off a card. You will also need to make sure that you pronounce all the sacred names of God correctly in your invocations, and once again do nothing to harm anyone in your magical rites. Even if you are conjuring a demon you can still command them to do good for you such a a jenn.

Conjure with care!

Feast of the Dead

FEAST OF THE DEAD.

THE custom of burying grave-goods with the dead, or slaying wife or slaves on the tomb, does not necessarily point to a cult of the dead, yet when such practices survive over a long period they assume the form of a cult. These customs flourished among the Celts, and, taken in connection with the reverence for the sepulchres of the dead, they point to a worship of ancestral spirits as well as of great departed heroes. Heads of the slain were offered to the "strong shades"--the ghosts of tribal heroes whose praises were sung by bards. 1 When such heads were placed on houses, they may have been devoted to the family ghosts. The honour in which mythic or real heroes were held may point to an actual cult, the hero being worshipped when dead, while he still continued his guardianship of the tribe. We know also that the tomb of King Cottius in the Alps was a sacred place, that Irish kings were often inaugurated on ancestral burial cairns, and that Irish gods were associated with barrows of the dead. 2

The cult of the dead culminated at the family hearth, around which the dead were even buried, as among the Aeduii; this latter custom may have been general. 3 In any case the belief in the presence of ancestral ghosts around the hearth was widespread, as existing superstitions show. In

p. 166

[paragraph continues] Brittany the dead seek warmth at the hearth by night, and a feast is spread for them on All Souls' eve, or crumbs are left for them after a family gathering. 1 But generally the family ghost has become a brownie, lutin, or pooka, haunting the hearth and doing the household work. 2Fairy corresponds in all respects to old ancestral ghost, and the one has succeeded to the place of the other, while the fairy is even said to be the ghost of a dead person. 3 Certain archæological remains have also a connection with this ancient cult. Among Celtic remains in Gaul are found andirons of clay, ornamented with a ram's head. M. Dechelette sees in this "the symbol of sacrifice offered to the souls of ancestors on the altar of the hearth." 4 The ram was already associated as a sacrificial animal with the cult of fire on the hearth, and by an easy transition it was connected with the cult of the dead there. It is found as an emblem on ancient tombs, and the domestic Lar was purified by the immolation of a ram. 5 Figurines of a ram have been found in Gaulish tombs, and it is associated with the god of the underworld. 6 The ram of the andirons was thus a permanent representative of the victim offered in the cult of the dead. A mutilated inscription on one of them may stand for Laribus augustis, and certain markings on others may represent the garlands twined round the victim. 7 Serpents with rams' heads occur on the monuments of the underworld god. The serpent was a chthonian god or the

p. 167

emblem of such a god, and it may have been thought appropriate to give it the head of an animal associated with the cult of the dead.

The dead were also fed at the grave or in the house. Thus cups were placed in the recess of a well in the churchyard of Kilranelagh by those interring a child under five, and the ghost of the child was supposed to supply the other spirits with water from these cups. 1 In Ireland, after a death, food is placed out for the spirits, or, at a burial, nuts are placed in the coffin. 2 In some parts of France, milk is poured out on the grave, and both in Brittany and in Scotland the dead are supposed to partake of the funeral feast. 3 These are survivals from pagan times and correspond to the rites in use among those who still worship ancestors. In Celtic districts a cairn or a cross is placed over the spot where a violent or accidental death has occurred, the purpose being to appease the ghost, and a stone is often added to the cairn by all passers-by. 4

Festivals were held in Ireland on the anniversaries of the death of kings or chiefs, and these were also utilised for purposes of trade, pleasure, or politics. They sometimes occurred on the great festivals, e.g. Lugnasad and Samhain, and were occasionally held at the great burial-places. 5 Thus the gathering at Taillti on Lugnasad was said to have been founded by Lug in memory of his foster-mother, Tailtiu, and the Leinstermen met at Carman on the same day to commemorate King Garman, or in a variant account, a woman called Carman. She and her sons had tried to blight the

p. 168

corn of the Tuatha Dé Danann, but the sons were driven off and she died of grief, begging that a fair should always be held in her name, and promising abundance of milk, fruit, and fish for its observance. 1 These may be ætiological myths explaining the origin of these festivals on the analogy of funeral festivals, but more likely, since Lugnasad was a harvest festival, they are connected with the custom of slaying a representative of the corn-spirit. The festival would become a commemoration of all such victims, but when the custom itself had ceased it would be associated with one particular personage, the corn-goddess regarded as a mortal.

This would be the case where the victim was a woman, but where a male was slain, the analogy of the slaying of the divine king or his succedaneum would lead to the festivals being regarded as commemorative of a king, e.g. Garman. This agrees with the statement that observance of the festival produced plenty; non-observance, dearth. The victims were slain to obtain plenty, and the festival would also commemorate those who had died for this good cause, while it would also appease their ghosts should these be angry at their violent deaths. Certain of the dead were thus commemorated at Lugnasad, a festival of fertility. Both the corn-spirit or divinity slain in the reaping of the corn, and the human victims, were appeased by its observance. 2 The legend of Carman makes her hostile to the corn--a curious way of regarding a corn-goddess. But we have already seen that gods of fertility were sometimes thought of as causing blight, and in folk-belief the corn-spirit is occasionally believed to be dangerous. Such inversions occur wherever revolutions in religion take place.

The great commemoration of the dead was held on

p. 169

[paragraph continues] Samhain eve, a festival intended to aid the dying powers of vegetation, whose life, however, was still manifested in evergreen shrubs, in the mistletoe, in the sheaf of corn from last harvest--the abode of the corn-spirit. 1 Probably, also, human representatives of the vegetation or corn-spirit were slain, and this may have suggested the belief in the presence of their ghosts at this festival. Or the festival being held at the time of the death of vegetation, the dead would naturally be commemorated then. Or, as in Scandinavia, they may have been held to have an influence on fertility, as an extension of the belief that certain slain persons represented spirits of fertility, or because trees and plants growing on the barrows of the dead were thought to be tenanted by their spirits. 2 In Scandinavia, the dead were associated with female spirits or fylgjur, identified with thedisir, a kind of earth-goddesses, living in hollow hills. 3 The nearest Celtic analogy to these is the Matres, goddesses of fertility. Bede says that Christmas eve was called Modranicht, "Mothers' Night," 4 and as many of the rites of Samhain were transferred to Yule, the former date ofModranicht may have been Samhain, just as the Scandinavian Disablot, held in November, was a festival of the disir and of the dead. 5 It has been seen that the Celtic Earth-god was lord of the dead, and that he probably took the place of an Earth-goddess or goddesses, to whom the Matrescertainly correspond. Hence the connection of the dead with female Earth-spirits would be explained. Mother Earth had received the dead before her place was taken by the Celtic Dispater. Hence the time of Earth's

p. 170

decay was the season when the dead, her children, would be commemorated. Whatever be the reason, Celts, Teutons, and others have commemorated the dead at the beginning of winter, which was the beginning of a new year, while a similar festival of the dead at New Year is held in many other lands.

Both in Ireland and in Brittany, on November eve food is laid out for the dead who come to visit the houses and to warm themselves at the fire in the stillness of the night, and in Brittany a huge log burns on the hearth. We have here returned to the cult of the dead at the hearth. 1 Possibly the Yule log was once a log burned on the hearth--the place of the family ghosts--at Samhain, when new fire was kindled in each house. On it libations were poured, which would then have been meant for the dead. The Yule log and the log of the Breton peasants would thus be the domestic aspect of the fire ritual, which had its public aspect in the Samhain bonfires.

All this has been in part affected by the Christian feast of All Souls. Dr. Frazer thinks that the feast of All Saints (November 1st) was intended to take the place of the pagan cult of the dead. As it failed to do this, All Souls, a festival of all the dead, was added on November 2nd. 2 To some extent, but not entirely, it has neutralised the pagan rites, for the old ideas connected with Samhain still survive here and there. It is also to be noted that in some cases the friendly aspect of the dead has been lost sight of, and, like the síd-folk, they are popularly connected with evil powers which are in the ascendant on Samhain eve.

War

FIGHTING FOR BALANCE IN THIS WORLD

By

Donna Morgan Wolf~Elder Airwolf

 

 

This world has been in many wars from the beginning but there was a moment of peace in the spiritual communities briefly, and this was in the days when the Goddess stood equal with the Gods. This brought balance as one needed the other in all aspects. If you look around you with all life forms there is a balance to all being in harmony with male and female counterparts. Sure there is no denying that domination of one counterpart disrespected this balance but to have a foolish notion one part is greater than the other is a recipe for war and destruction. Once this idealism set is that one is greater than the other along comes the aspects of greed, narcissism, and omnipotence.

The new movement of one god that rules all, is all, created all is narrow minded as if to say we are the only species in the universes on this one planet brings limitations. Yes this idealisms was forced upon many and many died trying to show there was much more. For example, Hypatia, Ancient Alexandria’s Great Female Scholar. An avowed paganist in a time of religious strife, Hypatia was also one of the first women to study math, astronomy and philosophy. One day on the streets of Alexandria, Egypt, in the year 415 or 416, a mob of Christian zealots led by Peter the Lector accosted a woman’s carriage and dragged her from it and into a church, where they stripped her and beat her to death with roofing tiles. They then tore her body apart and burned it. Who was this woman and what was her crime? Hypatia was one of the last great thinkers of ancient Alexandria and one of the first women to study and teach mathematics, astronomy and philosophy. Though she is remembered more for her violent death, her dramatic life is a fascinating lens through which we may view the plight of science in an era of religious and sectarian conflict.  Astrology was forbidden and the very thought that the Christian god did not create it all and there was something more was quickly stifled and hidden away like many aspects are hidden in the Christian bible. The stories are contradictory from book to book within these chapters. The balance has been destroyed so a one male dominating god can be sole ruler over all others. This is the beginning of the end of a true universal balance on this planet earth.

Before this time of the Christian movement the goddess and god took equal responsibilities in all nature complimenting one another as the sun and the moon complement each other, and without the equal amount from each there is always unbalance. The time has come once again to bring about balance. I have always known that this was coming as was foretold by my ancestors that the fifth world will emerge out of a great war as balance will be restored once again. I feel the time is growing near as all signs are coming to pass. I have received messages from the goddess about seven years ago to develop a place in her name to teach her children so they can learn and grow in the Great War for balance when the time comes. Thus the Legion of Pagans Spiritual Ministry was born.

Many are of narrow of mind in saying this Legion is of intent of profit and misleading thought. I am not surprised and expect this as were and are the Christians not being able to see beyond the confines of their own self-created borders of the mind and spirit: In other words, what you do not understand, deny and dismiss. I though the Christion values were based on “faith”. I and many following the old ways of the gods and goddesses have no need to be reassured and depend solely on faith. We do not question if they are there guiding us all the way, nor do we have issues with mortality either because we know we are coming back in one form or another. We do not rely on one chance to get it right to gain a place in a kingdom of heaven by one vengeful god that would toss your butt in to a purgatory as a punishment, no not the pagan way. We believe we are all responsible for our own actions and behaviors and karma will be your personal just for those actions. We do not believe you have to by your place into a heaven through televangelist donations. How can that be? What train are they riding to believe such a farce?

Had a very poignant dream last night about balance and how Christianity’s views of one god and it being male has disrupted the balance here on this planet, and this is why the war is coming and the fifth world will emerge embracing the goddess once again like in the olden day of druid.  I was reunited in a place where all had changed and there was thieves and liars. I was transformed into the warrior once again as I was in the last war from the elder teacher I am today to combat in my quest to find the father. I fought brutally through men and women to get to the father and ask him why this was is and he replied, “The mother is dead!” I wept sadly with the realization that in the Christian perception the mother is dead and has taken a place far behind the father bring about chaos from this imbalance.

This was that is coming is a war of position and power as it was before and is once again. Only difference this time is the weapons are more destructive, but the pagans are very strong. Learn and grow. There are many pagan organizations and communities that tell you the truth and will show you the old ways. So do as you will and follow what your believe is the way and when the fifth world is born if you’re not there, well guess your followed the wrong path. For the rest of my pagan brothers and sisters I will see you in the new world once again.

So Mote it Be!

Blessed Be to the Goddess!
