Beltane 2015

This year we honored Hathor and Horus at Beltane. We so rarely honor deities of the Egyptian pantheon and I think that made this ritual extra special.  The altar was dressed in red and Turquoise- Hathor’s color. As we have the past few years, we learned and executed a circle dance as part of the ritual. We also raised energy chanting a raucous chant! The offering to the goddess and god was a lovely dance created by Heather W, and we all made a joyful noise with tambourines throughout the ritual. As always, we finished our sabbat celebration with an epic feast! To us, Beltane is about joy and love and fun!

Our main altar!

Ostara 2015: Wiccaning

This Ostara we celebrated the coming of Spring and new beginnings by hosting a Wiccaning for a coven sister’s daughter. Friends and family of the coven sister were invited, making it a mixed religion/trad ritual. Attendees were invited to bestow blessings upon the child, and it was a beautiful ceremony. The weather was perfect for a spring Wiccaning.

The altar and tables were adorned with beautiful spring flowers. The Lord and Lady were evoked, as well as Brighid and Yemaya, personal patrons of the child’s mother.

As the child was presented to the quarters, we were joined by Hawk in the east and Lizard in the north.

We are so blessed to have such an amazing opportunity.

March’s all-coven meeting was led by Giselle. Giselle’s chosen emphasis (specialty) in the coven requires a vast knowledge of the lore of the Norse people. She led the coven in an interactive lecture where we learned the structure of the Norse gods, as well as the different types of spirits involved in the life of the Norse. We finished with an offering bowl craft. It was a fun and lovely evening.
