A spooky tale for Halloween…..

I loved the garden the moment I first saw it. Overgrown, neglected, yet it had been loved once, and could be again. There were brambles as thick as my wrist everywhere, but underneath a few valiant plants struggled to emerge. In the first year we spent time putting the house straight. After all, you live […]

Last Night’s radio interview – some notes

Last night I was privileged to be interviewed on One World Radio as part of the Avalon Whisperer show. Mostlly I was talking about Beltane, how it used to be celebrated and how it can be celebrated nowadays without losing any of its character. For those of you who missed it, I thought I would […]

Samhain blessings…

Winter is here. The old year – in Celtic terms – is past. In the valley where i live the day has dawned cold, bright and golden. You can actually feel the season’s passing, it’s particularly strong here today. What is it about this time of year that attracts us so much? Christianity did its […]

Halloween/Samhain Greetings

There’s a full moon tonight and there’s something in the air…of course, it’s Halloween! A wonderful time of year – I’ve lit one candle already, and some incense, and now I’m off to light some more. Brightest blessings Tylluan

Halloween and the Silly Season

Make no mistake, I love this time of year. And it always saddens me when it seems to turn into the Silly Season when vicars, ministers and those who write in Church Magazines start harping on about how it is all connected with devil worship. This is then seized on by the media… who aren’t […]

Samhain and Halloween

Well, I haven’t blogged much lately, but Samhain (or Halloween) is fast approaching. As a solitary pagan I have to ask myself what this means to me and how I will celebrate it. One of the ‘problems’ with being a solitary is that there is no set ritual, you have to start from scratch and […]

Magical Autumn

The problem with noticing the seasons is that for most of us we are far removed from the natural world where such changes would be most obvious. Or are we? Give nature half a chance and she’s there, nudging us half awake, urging us to remember our own heritage before it’s lost forever under a […]

A quick update….and the autumn equinox…

I’ve been away from Blogland for ages, I know. Sometimes there simply aren’t enough hours in the day and I am desperately playing catch up. And also, I don’t like posting entries on the blog that simply say ‘I’m soooo bored’ (I never am) or ‘I’m soooo tired’ (by the time I reach that stage […]

Halloween and Samhain Blessings!

I’m a bit late posting, I know, but I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy Halloween/Samhain. This is a very special time of year, when the veil between this and other worlds is particularly thin (the same thing also happens around May 1st). So if you experience increased psychic activity, premonitions, strange co-incidences […]

November and the Festivals of Lights

A few days ago, one of my Blogfriends, tuso 69 raised such an interesting question that I said I would try and do a separate post on it. She was curious to know why most of the festivals that are celebrated with lights (almost all over the world) happen during late october and November. These […]
