IVO DOMINGUEZ JR Ivo is probably the hardest working Pagan teacher I know. He goes to more festivals and does more workshops than practically anybody. He’s everywhere, and for good reason, he’s a a great teacher and an even better person. And there’s also that New Alexandrian Library project he’s a major part of. Ivo is amazing.

A song for our times by Gwendolyn Reece.

AthenaColumbia

Lyrics

Battle Hymn of the Resistance

When we rise up and claim our power

The Good, it cannot fall.

We take up the shield of service

To defend the rights of all.

 

[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.

 

We defend the Constitution,

Rule of Law across the land.

When blind Justice, She is threatened

We will not let it stand.

 

[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.

 

We tend the Hearth of Kindness,

Soul of Democracy.

Welcome tired, poor, huddled masses

Yearning to breathe free.

 

[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.

 

Our Healer’s Cup we offer

To all souls who have need.

We work to heal our nation

Of hatred and of greed.

 

[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.

 

Our visionary garden blooms

With dreams we bring to birth,

Of what society can be

If we dare to love the Earth.

 

[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

And work to set things right.

 

So rise up and claim your power

Together we will grow.

See America as we should be

And we will make it so.

 

[Chorus]
 We hear the call of duty.

We heed the Spirit’s Light.

We stand firm in compassion,

and will make things right.

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 (https://www.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. She has previously taught at Spring Magick, Autumn Magick, Philadelphia Pagan Pride and Free Spirit Gathering.

It seems there’s always some astronomer or scientist debunking astrology without understanding the very basic premise of astrology.
