2017 South Jersey Pagan Pride Day

SJPPD on 10/07/17- Workshop at 1:30 PM!

The Journey from Hod to Netzach: or how I came to Love the Tower Card, by Karen Bruhin

“There is a lot that happens magically when we truly initiate from one level of our practice to another. Our mundane lives get shaken up and stirred while we get more clarity in our actual spiritual/magickal practices, and the dance goes back and forth between the two. In this class we will take on quick over view of the Qabalistic spheres of Hod (Splendor), Netzach (Victory), the path between them (27), and the Tower card from the tarot, and how they relate to initiation.”

Karen Bruhin is a 3rd degree initiate within the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel (ASW),www.sacredwheel.org

) a Wiccan syncretic tradition. She is the High Priestess of Tenders of the Earth Temple (http://tet-asw.org/

) founded in 2011 and which based in NW Philadelphia. A practitioner of a variety of esoteric disciplines, Karen has been active in Wicca and the local Pagan community for the past 18 years. Additionally, Karen is the Captain of the Gryphons, a magical order within the ASW that is charged with the magical protection of the ASW. She offers ongoing classes through Mt. Airy Learning Tree and through the coven as well as co-coordinator for ritual at 2017 Philadelphia Pagan Pride Day.

Lessons From Work – PaganSquare – PaganSquare – Join the conversation!

I have been involved in occult and spiritual pursuits  since I was a child, performed rituals as a teenager, but my first attendance at a Pagan event was in 1978 so I count that as my start in the community. Next year will be my 40th year as a member of this community. In that time I have learned from peers, elders, students, spirits and God/des/es, and from close observation and contemplation of my experiences. I’ve owned and run a metaphysical shop twice in my time as a Pagan. The first time for 6 years and the second time for 10 years. Some of my most important lessons came to me from my role as a shop keeper.

Open The Door Softly – PaganSquare – PaganSquare – Join the conversation!

Over the last several years, I have noticed more people expressing that they are encountering a thinning of the veils, openings between the worlds, crossings to and from the neighboring realms, and so on. These reports have been increasing in number and the intervals between reports have been decreasing. Significantly, these encounters and observations are less linked to the times and places that are traditionally thought of as naturally liminal or during the times in the changes of the seasons of the Sun and Moon when these passages are expected. I have read and heard a variety of suggestions to explain this phenomenon, and many of them are reasonable and plausible. I’d like to propose that there is also a slow and steady shift in the Astrological tides that is also one of the root causes of this change. There will be just enough Astrology in this post to offer an explanation without bogging down in a lesson in Astrology.
