weather report...

Post by dragonflydrummer » Mon Apr 25, 2005 6:14 am

It's been Spring in Seattle since February. First crocuses popped on Imbolc. It came early this year as our Winter was unseasonably warm & dry. Lately it's been in the 60's mostly and sunny -- although it's clouded up this morning. We ain't had snow in a long old time... 8-)

It's going to rain in Maine for the next week, but as long as it stops for Saturday, I'll be happy.

Well all the way down here in Florida we certainly aren't getting snow, but we just got part of that cold front, which made it like 60 degrees last night, which NEVER happens in April here! It's supposed to be like 80 degrees (95 with humidity) from February straight through till late November. The weather is too weird lately. :-?

Well, for the first time I was able to celebrate the Summer Equinox and soon to celebrate Lughassadh also for the first time. I hope this thread picks up. One thing about Wicca that has struck such a chord with me is that the ancient Gods have brought reality to me in a meaningful way. In other words how to live unlike Xtianity.

If I may, how did you celebrate it? I'm trying to blend quite a few different 'systems', I wish to celebrate in some way the Solstices and Equinoxes, but I'm not sure how...

Rockhopper, it is not the question of how but the intent. Take what you know and go with what feels right.

Mm. Agreed.

Although, if you're really stuck, light a fire. :-D It's a ritual in and of itself, also good for toasting.

Candle-jumping on the Summer Solstice.
Baking bread on the Feast of Lugh.
Walking a balance beam on Mabon.
Goddess -- there's a ton of stuff to do...!

I would love to have a fire for the solstices and equinoxes, but the problem is that I'm at college for most of the year, and such things would likely get me thrown out...

How about just a bunch of candles then? Bunching them all together may make a mess but it's the next best thing to a fire. Be sure to use beeswax candles rather than the other kind - petroleum, which pollutes the air. It may make a mess because of all the heat generated by so many candles but it smells wonderful, and if you are doing some meditating or Journeying it feels cold anyway, if spirits enter the room.

That is a good idea, I am hoping to get a "fire-permit" that allows me to burn candles and bit of incense in my dorm room... if such a thing still exists at my school.

Oh -- C'mon 'Hoppy! Live it up and light a candle. Rules were made to be broken... :lol:

lol! Agreed....although having said that, this is the first year at uni I'll be able to light and have a candle burning throughout the night for Samhain!
