Hail and Greetings!

In all it's sundry spellings-- Magick, Magik, et cetera-- it is the most elusive and paradoxically the most blatantly obvious functioning element in Paganism. [Well, in christianity's prayer, too; difference being the latter place the responsibility to Will the request to be altogether on the outside Deity, thus lack achieving full potential by removing the Self as an important catalyst...]

Often hard for me to differentiate magic from every-day existence sometime: seeing the moon waxing or waning in the daytime (or night) sky and getting an immediate Real-Time mental image of the locations in space of the Sun, the Moon, and our Earth.

Seeing the Isle so clearly, being no where else except facing the Moon through the Stone Pillars. Feeling the Sand beneath my tucked legs. Hearing the insects. The wind in the palms. The background hum of the Ocean as She makes her surface tide to follow the Moon's lead...
Magic (of meditation, the only place the Isle above exists...).

Then there's Ritual-- you know, going through the Ritual of the Pentagram; your solo or Coven's (or Hearth's or Grove or...) Seasonal Ritual, either traditional or new-made.

And Symbolism. The way the Seasons and Energies and maybe Goddesses and such communicate their true multi-leveled meaning and nature to us. Through meditation, or revelation, or observation.

Energy in motion.


Health and Fairwell!

Three times Three things about me...

Hail and Greetings!
I am Cygnus; Swans who were Children of a God were my forebears.
A Swan Stands Guarding Proper my paternal family crest.
The Name that chose me is of the Cygni...

As introduction, I offer you the following Three times Three... things

In the words of the immortal George Carlin: "[I] am unique. Just like every body else."
None of us is capable of being known or described by nine words, or even concepts.
But maybe I can reveal a bit through my choice of words chosen to paint the image...

2. Pagan
I want to stress that aspect of Cygnus a bit more here...

3. Still an Inner Child
Don't know-- just likes the sound of it!!!

A) Priori: moving to the Land
I'm PAGAN. I have things to do. Gardens to grow. Foods to eat.
A family to raise.
And three to provide for, counting my elder generations...

B) 'Cause and Effect
My belief in Karma. Magic. Will.
Not so much a three-fold return; I'll grant you one-for-one.
Seems more the way the Universe Balances.
More to come...

C) ooking
er, Cooking. I Love to do it. Ties in with:

Third: Garden attempt in two years. (The other two weren't neglected, but started and not harvested by me because of two re-locations.)

I'm attempting to raise some of my own food here in the big H.
Kind of a magic, ain't it? And worthy of reverence, and a healthy way many times over (nutritional gain, exercise) to invest time caring for and connecting with Gaia, the Earth Mother's Life Force, and watching it manifest...

Second: Blog.
Found a fun voice elsewhere.
Looking to express another here. More Pagan and Magic.
Sense a recurring theme?

First: Post Here.
Be curious to hear how you found me. No advertising elsewhere.
Cool Sphere:D

Health and Fairwell!!!
