    The Goddess that rules today is Kamrusepas,she is the Hittite Goddess of healing and magic. She was able to cure paralysis and other illnesses, by unbinding the illness from the worshipper. When the fertility God Telepinu had left the world in a rage, resulting in widespread famine, it was Kamrusepas who was finally able to subdue his anger with her rituals. After calming him with honey and fruit, her magic captured and banished his anger to the underworld. Kamrusepas is also known as Kamrushepash, Kammarushepash, Katahzippuri, Katahzipuri, and Katahziwuri.Her gemstone is the white coral.

    The City Dionysia

    The Dionysia begins at sundown on the 10 Elaphebolion and lasts for eight days. The Dionysia included competitive performances of tragedies. The great classic tragedies we treasure today for their revelation of the human condition represent only the winning plays, and of those winning plays less than one percent survive. There are profound religious understandings exemplified in the tragedies such as piety and right action. Although the Gods bring only goodness, the plays provide dramatic realization that what Fate provides in life is not always kind or fair and life is often filled with hardship. It is how we respond to events that the Fates bestow upon us and how we practice right action even under the most difficult of circumstances that cultivates our own agathos daimon, our spirit of goodness, and provides examples of right action for others.

    The festivals were attended by all Athenian citizens (likely women as well as men) and visitors from throughout Greece. The Dionysia was celebrated in honor of the god Dionysus Eleuthereus (god of freedom)

    Before the start of the festival, there were 2 processions, the first, carrying the statue of Dionysus to and from, and the second where various groups proceeded through the city to the theater, arrayed in groups distinguishable by color or other articles of dress, according to Rabinowitz. The ceremonies started at dawn in the outdoor theater, with purification and lustrations, followed by a dithyramb, and then the plays.

    The City Dionysia, which the tyrant Pisistratus is said to have started, was controlled by the eponymous archon of the year. The year before, he would choose 3 tragic poets to compete. He also chose the choregus (chorus leader) and 3 actors. The choregus not only trained the actors and chorus, but paid for the production.

    For those in the south hemisphere – I haven't forgotten you all!!! :)

    Blessed Mabon!!

    This works for both Equinoxes:
    Some questions to be thinking about as you go about this day of balance….

    1. Are you balancing work with play and rest?
    2. Are you balancing movement in the world with evolution of your soul and spirit?
    3. Are you balancing your personal life with your work and other commitment life?
    4. Are you balancing your need to take care of yourself along with the care to help others?
    5. Are you balancing your daily life with your daily needs (hollistically – not just physically with food and water – but your spiritual side, your emotional side)?

    Kala Galaxia!

    Today (March 20), beginning at sundown, coincides with the ninth day of the month of Ekaphebolion! On which we celebrate the festival of Galaxia

    The Galaxia is a festival celebrated in honor of the Mother of the Gods, i.e. Rhea, and is held at the Vernal Equinox.

    Traditionally, Rhea is honored with a dish of barley boiled with milk and likely sweetened with honey and flavored with cinnamon.

    "If one could fall at queenly knees, black-leaf-robed, of the Mater Oreias (Mountain Mother, and epithet of Rhea) and casting one’s beautiful arms about them might pray, ‘Gold-tressed Mater Theon (Mother of the Gods), save, I beseech you, my life, yes mine, for which refuge is hard to find." ~ Timotheus, Fragment 791

    Ostara / Eostre / Spring Equinox
    Sun enters Aries | Color: White | Planting Day | Waxing Moon

    As Spring reaches its midpoint, night and day stand in perfect balance, with light on the increase. The young Sun God now celebrates a hierogamy (sacred marriage) with the young Maiden Goddess, who conceives. In nine months, she will again become the Great Mother. It is a time of great fertility, new growth, and newborn animals.

    The next full moon (a time of increased births) is called the Ostara and is sacred to Eostre the Saxon Lunar Goddess of fertility (from whence we get the word estrogen, whose two symbols were the egg and the rabbit.

    The Christian religion adopted these emblems for Easter which is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. The theme of the conception of the Goddess was adapted as the Feast of the Annunciation, occurring on the alternative fixed calendar date of March 25 Old Lady Day, the earlier date of the equinox. Lady Day may also refer to other goddesses (such as Venus and Aphrodite), many of whom have festivals celebrated at this time.

    Traditional Foods: Leafy green vegetables, Dairy foods, Nuts/seeds such as Pumpkin, Sunflower and Pine. Flower Dishes and Sprouts.

    Herbs and Flowers: Daffodil, Jonquils, Woodruff, Violet, Gorse, Olive, Peony, Iris, Narcissus and all spring flowers.

    Incense: Jasmine, Rose, Strawberry, Floral of any type.

    Sacred Gemstone: Jasper

    Special Activities: Planting seeds or starting a Magickal Herb Garden. Taking a long walk in nature with no intent other than reflecting on the Magick of nature and our Great Mother and her bounty.

  • Ostara
    Ostara, or the Spring Equinox, is an enchanted borderland time outside of time where a magickal seam joins dark and light. From this moment on, the Sun God begins his seminal journey across the sky. His light and warmth overtake the darkness of Winter until his power peaks at Summer Solstice in June. Ostara is a time of new fire. The light and dark are in perfect balance, but the light is growing and the Sun is about to burst forth with new energy. It is a season of fertility and growth. Eostre or Ostara is the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring to whom offerings of cakes and colored eggs were made at the Vernal Equinox. Rabbits were sacred to her, especially white rabbits, and she was believed to take the form of a rabbit.

    Real Magick Witches Tool Kit


    Do I need to be a Witch to use this? You dont have to be an initiated Witch to make Magick, as all of us are born with a sixth sense that enables us to make Magick happen. The difference is that while we are encouraged by our parents to see, hear, smell, taste and even talk, most of us are discouraged from fantasising, having conversations with imaginary friends and anticipating events in the future, which would otherwise be our first steps on the Magickal path. These powers are still latent within all of us and the Magickal tools in this Tool Kit are simply devices to enable you to find, direct and channel this Magickal energy, which is still within you. To get the most out of your Tool Kit follow the instructions carefully and suspend disbelief the results will speak for themselves.
    Contents of the Witches Tool Kit: Book of Shadows. Wand. Chalice. Pentagram. Talisman. Two White Candles and Holder. Salt from the Dead Sea. Consecrated Water Vessel, Salt Vessel and Incense Vessel. Size: 130x100mm
