Pagan Events: Melting P.O.T.

I always love finding out about new pagan events and gatherings in the area. I don't get to make each and every one, but I'm always thrilled to see the pagan community thriving and supporting one another. One such event that I'd like to share with you is just in the early stages of its development: The Melting P.O.T. by Pagans of Texas.

Today I want to talk about ritual. It seems there is a lot of unnecessary fear surrounding that word in our modern western culture. On the one hand, I understand why. Ritual is a gate into the Mystery— capital M intended. The Mystery, as in the universal experience of life and the universe that confounds our knowledge and understanding.

Revamping Mercury Retrograde

Yes, it's that time of year again. No, I don't mean the holidays. I'm talking about Mercury Retrograde. Go ahead, groan. Better? Let's move on. Mercury Retrograde is an astrological optical illusion that occurs three to four times a year when, from our earth-based perspective, the planet Mercury slows down, appears to stop, and then begins moving backwards. In truth, progress is still underway, even if we perceive otherwise.

Moving Magick

Tonight is the glorious Hunter's Moon, October's full night of full moon which is one of my favorites every year, and a lunar eclipse to boot. And what am I doing to harness the incredible manifesting energy of this moon? I will be lighting a House Hunting candle. I figure, what better time to work a little house hunting magick than at the Hunter's Moon? Hey, it's hunting. Just of a different sort than most are thinking about this time of year.

What IS Magick?

What IS Magick?

And why is my spelling so atrocious?

I can assure you, neither are accidents. First, let me explain the "k" to those outside the secret circle loop. Over time, the word magic has come to mean anything from stage performances by black-eyeliner-wearing charlatans to what happens when Harry Potter farts while holding his wand.

New Moon Rising

Greg Mort: Day into Night
A new moon rises tonight. And with it rises a host of powerful new manifestations in my life. Chief among them is this blog. Starting this blog is an exciting new venture for me. One that I don't take lightly. I've been pretty cloistered about my craft and my spiritual path, even after bursting from the broom closet in my private and public life several years ago.
