Ostara ~ 13 Aq.

Ostara 2014

 

Ostara was held at the home of our Shrine Keeper and led by Rev. John Ford of The Dawn Chariot Shrine.   After our ritual, Sowilo Daegian Inhired (Sun Dawn Inhired)  hosted a small húsel.

We asked the elements to return and welcomed the ancestors, Hero God and the Maiden Goddess.  We cut ties with all that blocked our highest good and received the seeds of blessings to manifest in our lives.

At the húsel, we toasted Eostre, our ancestors and those who made our lives better.  We then feasted, talked and laughed into the night. Thank you all for coming!

Imbolc Altar 2014

Imbolc was held in a local store, Moonflower’s Magical Touch.

As we honored the mark of Midwinter, we sang our praises to the Goddess Brighid and made offerings to her Holy Well.Brighid's Girdle

We danced through Her Girdle and asked for Her Blessings. As as the bells rung and our voices lifted in song, we feasted into the night!

Yule ~ 13 Aq.

Yule

Yule was held twice! Once in our Shrine Keeper’s home and another in a local store, Moonflower’s Magical Touch.

As we honored the Sun God’s journey through the year and witnessed His passing as the last light faded, we braved the darkness. Through this difficult times, we stood together. Though His light was not with us at that time, we remembered.

To be remembered, is to truly live forever. Yes, we all die like the Sun God. And like Him we are reborn!

As we hailed the return of the sun, we lit all the candles in His honor – for that bright spark lives in us all.  Hail the Return of the Sun!

What a great day! Our thanks to all who came to celebrate with us! With 18 in attendance, we raised lots of energy, sang our joy to the Divine and cheered on the Champions! Below is picture of our altar and the charm empowered in ritual. Our thanks to the Dancing Lights Grove, ADF and Lothlorien Canada for joining with us to honour Deity and celebrate with community!

We sang to cast the circle and call in the elements and the Divine. We blessed and sanctified our Shrine. We told the tale of Jenny Wren and asked Lugh to help us hone our skills. We shared from the loving cup and offered the first fruits to the Deity, the Ancestors and Spirits.  We closed the circle with a song and love from all the attendants. We can’t wait to do it again!

We humbly thank, Jenn F., Rod M., Franceen B., Rebecca W., Lothorien Canada and Dancing Lights Grove, ADF for the lovely gifts for our Shrine!
