The Spring Equinox - Nature's Tipping Point

Spring EquinoxThe Spring Equinox is an event that is rightly respected throughout the Magickal world.

It marks a point of balance, when the planet tips back towards the Sun. In the northern hemisphere, we long associate this event with a return towards summer and the good times of plenty. Once the equinox arrives, you know that winter is officially history!

We can look forward to the sunny months ahead, but we can also take advantage of the special Magickal opening that this event provides. It is a unique opportunity for Spell-casting.

To use the power of the Spring Equinox, we must first understand what occurs on this day.

Saint Patrick's Day

Dye the river green, get yourself a beer, and watch out for the sneaky Leprechauns – it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day! As we delve into the history of particular holidays as the year goes along, we learn about the significance of the original event(s), as well as how traditions emerged over time. Over the past few years, I witnessed an ultra-modern interpretation of St. Patrick’s Day, but secretly wondered how many individuals truly knew what they were celebrating.
This is certainly not to criticize the celebration in any which way, but simply to notice how traditions change over time regardless of their origins. Similar to the notion of Santa Claus, new customs have emerged at certain instances in time that add to a certain holiday’s celebration. Reindeer, gifts, and a sleigh were not initially associated with Saint Nicholas, but have become over time. So I ask to the inherent balance of our Universe, if something is added, must something be taken away?
Patrick was born in 386 A.D., in Britain, to a family of religious prominence. Just after his 16th birthday, he was kidnapped by Irish raiders and made a slave on the West Coast of Ireland. He remained there for years until in a dream Patrick had, where he claimed to receive a message from God to flee captivity and return to Britain, which he did. After his return, Patrick devoted his time towards studying to become a Priest.

The Number Phi

The study of Mathematics is one of the oldest and most important academic fields known to man. It was first generated even before writing emerged to organize and compare known truths of the earth and of the universe, as well as discover new patterns. It has since developed into a complex system of numbers and formulas that allow us to delve deeper into our planet’s natural harmony, advance technologically, and spawn a conjecture to essentially every question man has asked at one point or another. Numeracy is infinite, and there is no end to mathematical discoveries in sight, though through all of the progress and expansion of the realm of this discipline, there has been one true consistency: 1.618.

The Left-hand Path

The topics of Black Magick and the Left-Hand path have often come up in our conversations with some of you. While there is a great stigma attached to an individual who has strayed onto this path, it is unfair to assume that this individual is inherently malicious.

Sometimes the individual has had treacherous life experiences which he or she is unable to shed. These feelings build up within the individual until they feel as if there is no resort other than to find vengeance for the problems that life has imposed upon them.

The Riddle of the Sphinx

If you have heard of the Great Sphinx before, you might hold an image of the great construction of a winged-lioness with a human female’s head in Giza, Egypt, near the pyramid of Cheops. This is the most widespread representation of this mystical creature, though the word ‘Sphinx’ does not actually stem from Egyptian origins, but rather from the Greek language, signifying a ‘living statue’ combining elements of Egyptian or Greek royalty with their animal counterparts. A Sphinx does not have to be part lion and part human as is the Great Sphinx, but instead be any animal fused with a King (Pharaoh), another member of his family, or Deity. There is variation in the role of the Sphinx between Egyptian and Greek Culture. The Egyptian Sphinx, generally a male with the exception of the Great Sphinx, is said to represent power through a benign rule over the constituents within his or her domain. This contrasts with the Greek Sphinx, who is usually female, and is antagonistic in nature. In Legend, this Sphinx will not let anyone pass her without answering her riddle correctly.
