How Do You Know When a God Is a God?

Every pagan knows that there are gods walking among us: seen, unseen, and (most often of all, I suspect), seen but unrecognized.

So how do you tell when that radiantly beautiful guy across the street, or the old woman that just happened to whisper exactly the right thing in your ear, is one of us or one of...Them?

According to the sages of India, there are three things to look for.

The Rose in Winter

It's the Eve of Russian Christmas. Perfumed with incense, the church is dark, lit only by candlelight.

I stand with the other worshipers, savoring the chewy Slavonic chant. For me, it is Midwinter's Eve all over again: we gather together in cavernous darkness, awaiting the Momentous.

After the service, we file forward. Wielding, with practiced deftness, a delicate little paintbrush, the priest anoints us, one by one.

As the bristles brush my brow, my nostrils fill with the ghostly fragrance of roses. In the heart of Midwinter, the voluptuous scent of Midsummer.

I think of Her who is called Rosa Mundi, Rose of the World, Mother of Witches.

Soul Expanding 3 Card Spread - Aquarius Moon Vibes Jan. 6-9

Mama Moon enters the Fixed, Air sign of Aquarius on Jan. 6 at 10:46 pm Pacific time until Jan. 9.

This is a SEED Moon-Time coming right after the New Moon as she rises and sets with Papa Sun and it’s a perfect time to plant your seeds and intentions for the moonth ahead. Moon is at Apogee though, meaning she’s as far away from the Earth as she gets, so the transits and vibe will be more subtle and muted.

AstroGemology: Capricorn Soul Stones and Power Crystals

Capricorns born n late December and early January  have two power stones: jet and lazulite are each stones that have a dark and shadowy appearance representative of the Capricornian planet of Saturn.  Jet, named for its intense black color and hardness, is one of the oldest stones known to man, making it a perfect match for slow and steady Capricorns, who are reputed to grow more youthful as they get older.  Capricorns have great longevity; they live long and prosper!  Lazulite, opaque and often displaying the dark and cloudy blue associated with the energy of the planet Saturn, is good for mental processes and stimulates the frontal lobe.  Dogged and hardworking Capricorns will do well to keep this concentration-enhancing talisman nearby at all times.

Latter half Capricorns get to have lapis lazuli as their talismanic crystal.  This stone was absolutely revered by the Egyptians and other Mesopotamian cultures.  With its bright saturnine blue, this stone connotes wisdom, accomplishment, and value, as befits the latter half of Capricorn.  Capricorns sometimes seem slow and plodding to others, but they are really anything but.  Capricorns are surefooted and careful and will get to the top of the mountain while others fall behind.
