    The Stars of Spring

    The Stars of Spring

    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.

    Celebrating Eostara

    Celebrating Eostara

    Astronomically, the Equinox occurs on Thursday, March 19. 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.

    Thinking About Deism

    Thinking About Deism

    Deism as an encompassing thought and philosophy had a major influence over those we in American call our Founding Fathers. Thus the shape of our Constitution is very much a product of Deism.

    But what's the connection between Deism and Paganism? Well, in the Eighteenth Century many Deists spoke of a Creator God, or The God of Nature. They connected to the Devine through Rational Thought Processes, and by connecting with Naturv e.

    Clearly the Deists of 1775 would scoff at the Pagans of today. But we at least have Nature in common.

    So let's take some time to learn about Deism, and maybe derive inspiration from Deistic Quotes.

    Tales Told Out of School; Urban Myths

    Tales Told Out of School; Urban Myths

    The Urban Myth is the subject of this week's show.

    Why do we tell eachother such stories? They're always so extreme and fantastic that, really, the rational mind knows they can't be true. But not only do we tell them anyway; we, in fact listen to them as well. Maybe these fantastic set of circumstances just might be real afterall!

    The Urban myth has alot in common with traditional myths and folklore, in the way they satisfy a need for storytelling. It may be that the Urban Myth expresses a feeling that we live in a world that might actually be in total chaos.

    Animal Totems; Yay or Nay?

    Animal Totems; Yay or Nay?

    This week here on The Spiral Dance, we're discussing Animal Totems.

    In the general neoPagan community people - not everyone - who work with animal spirit guides talk about Animal Totems.

    Purists will tell you that that's kind of a misnomer. Totems are not really spirit guides and spirit guides are not really totems.

    Where do YOU stand on this immense question??

    Well, I'm here to untangle the whole mess and by the time we're finished we'll all know what really is what.

    So we start of with a pretty clear definition of what a Totem is - where the word came from and how it was used. And we'll look at WHERE the word was used as well.

    Plus, we'll find out what Carl Gustave Jung had to say about Totems.

    Then we'll get into Power Animals, and animal guides, with some - interesting - contemporary theories on the subject.

    Love Notes for Valentines Day

    Love Notes for Valentines Day

    Valentine's Day will be here on the 14th. Let's pass a couple love notes!

    Some people believe that the Ancient Roman holiday of the Lupercalia was the forerunner to Valentine's Day. That's not actually true, but there are some associations so we'll take a look at what the Lupcalia was all about.

    Then we'll talk a bit about the Christian St. Valentine - or ValentineS, plural. There was actually more than one Valentine - but were they all lovers??

    Which brings us to Romantic Love - as old as the human race, right? Yes, and no. As in all aspects of love, the answer is never a simple one. But we'll talk about the poet Chaucer and the middle ages and go from there.

    And where to go? Sex Magick!
