Mabon — The Autumnal Equinox (via svadhisthana)

Mabon, the Autumnal Equinox, is always a Sabbat that is special to me. It's the first Sabbat I ever celebrated, so it's like an "anniversary" to me. Every Mabon marks one complete turn of the Wheel of the Year since I began my journey in the Craft. This year marked my third Mabon.

What is Druidry? (via Tales from the Black Cat)

This evening I've been musing on the nature of Druidry, as it is for me and in general.  It sounds such a basic concept, but I can remember when I started out exploring pagan paths, it was Druidry that I found most difficult to get a grip on.  Eight years on, I think I may understand now… Druidry, for me, is a creative way of life, a way of being, a way of relating to life events and to the world around me.  I suppose that sounds pretty vague, … Read More
