Light strains to take hold
As darkness spreads her wings
Of Divine shroud.

Darkness seeks its mate
Of brilliant light
And both weave the
Dance of courtship and
Consummate Union.

Darkness lifts a wing ready to
Molt its downy blackness
And Light kisses one
Last time lips that seek the hermit’s solace.

Light coils within the shadows
Spiraling out and reaching
With tendrils of inky
Stain that becomes the
Beauty of a palette of
Misty grey.

This poem introduced the first session of a 3-week course I just finished teaching entitled, Celestial Tides: Days of Light, Dark and Balance.
Each class is recorded and placed on my Teachings of the Path website for access to those who could not join us in person.

This month, I am offering this course to the community as a thank you for the support and encouragement in my teaching endeavors. I love to share what I’ve learned with others and being able to interact with those open and eager to explore this path together is a blessing and gift I have long enjoyed.

About Celestial Tides:
Great power is held in the magick of the Equinoxes and the Solstices. These are times of change and the balance of the Equinox offers the point of neutrality between the burgeoning Light and Dark of the Solstices. The Great Wheel of the Year uses these days of power as anchor and stimulus for the Sabbats of Devotion held between.

This 3-wk series will provide the lore of these celestial tides, the astrological points of note and reveal the gifts of cyclical nature that are held in the honoring of these auspicious days.

The classes will be a synthesis of experience, theory and techniques for enhancing ritual and personal practice.

Who Am I?


I am at a crossroads. A crossroads of tenuous grasp on who I am. So many choices I have made and so many paths yet untaken. Each shaping and molding an image that I don’t recognize. And, time, not feeling a support right now, ticks onward. Each second, each hour counting down to the inevitable end.

Do I do enough? Do I honor all areas of my life? And, if I say “yes” to these queries, am I being honest with myself?

I thought that what was offered would somehow make a difference. But, does it really? Or, is it only a difference made in my own expectations and judgments?

I look at the lives that surround me, some I wish for, others I am content to be only observer. Does that give any more definition to who I am within the world?

Once I had grand ambitions and true to my style everything was laid out; a blueprint even down to my home. Those ambitions took on new forms and blessings came in what was least expected.I would not change any of that. I know this has made me who I think I am. Is there a distinction between who I think and who I truly am?

Once I costumed myself in expressions of who I wished to be and lost myself in the music that served as the sound score for my actions. Then, there was no need to define myself, because I was a shape shifter; a chameleon who took on the persona of whoever was scripted.

If I step outside of the restraints and perceived limitations of who I have become, does that make me more authentic, more real? Or, does that make me more vulnerable to really seeing who I am?

So I stand at a crossroads of my own making. Everything that has come before and all the wishes of what could be converging into this center point of “me”. Do I have the courage to open my eyes and look at myself in this present moment? Or, do I flee to the blindness of not wishing to gaze at my self-reflection?…..

Last night we began our journey through the astronomical year and deeper connection to the quarter points of Solstices and Equinoxes. This poem emerged from that intention. Enjoy…

Musings From the Mystic Path
The Month of July
Hot! Hot! Hot!

We’ve passed the mid-point of the calendar year and are ready to embrace all that July has to offer. Summer is clinging hard and that also means higher temperatures. Let’s heat it up!

This month’s writings are a tribute to letting the heat rise and basking in the light of Summer’s offering. We’ve included more incense recipes, some wonderful photos and more. So, kick back on a hot beach or your favorite lawn chair and let the warmth of the Summer flow through you….

“All in all, it was a never to be forgotten summer — one of those summers which come seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going — one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends and…
