Pagan 101: Colour

I find myself deeply affected by colour. Colour has the power to change my mood, my feelings, my energy levels, my appetite and many more of my physical, emotional and mental functions. I decided to explore this phenomenon this week and to experiment a bit to learn more about the power of colour.

Top 5 Phrases That Drive Me Crazy

Imbolc Blessings!

This year, February 4th is the Pagan festival of Imbolc. This is a cross-quarter day; halfway between the winter solstice and spring equinox. The word "Imbolc" comes from an old Irish word "Oimelc" which means "ewes' milk" as this is the time of the first newborn spring lambs. We celebrate the awakening of spring, the first stirrings of Mother Earth and the growing power of the sun. This is a time of inspiration, purification and cleansing, and preparation for growth and renewal. Imbolc  I wish all my readers Imbolc blessings!

Pagan 101: Circle

Have you ever wondered why pagans always seem to stand in circles? Or why the ancient ones built stone circles? 



These circles are the pagans' sacred space. They are the pagans' church, temple or holy place. The place where they can worship, perform rituals and become closer to their deities.

In this post I will explain how to cast a circle for yourself, and give you a circle etiquette guide so you will know what to do if you attend a public pagan ritual, or if you are invited to a pagan ritual, such as a religious festival celebration, or a handfasting (pagan marriage ceremony).
