What's Going On?

Citrine

Citrine is a type of quartz found in Brazil, Russia, Madagascar, and France. It is brown, yellow or orange in color. Most "citrine" sold in shops is actually heat-treated amethyst or smokey quartz. These are usually much darker in color than natural citrine with a reddish tint. Citrine looks very similar to topaz and may be sold in the place of harder, more expensive stone to the unwary.

Divine Astrological Correspondences

Many traditions associate the various planets with specific deities. Below is a chart of suggested associations.

Wheel Of The Year

Wiccans and Druids and many other modern Pagans use the Wheel of the Year liturgical calendar. It is based on the agricultural calendar of Western Europe and defines a cycle, of birth/sowing, growth, decline/ripening and death/harvesting and storage of the crops, then rest and repeat. Some NeoPagan religions attach specific cosmological storylines to these activities, illustrating the cycle through the lives of Gods and heroes, but these vary quite a bit by tradition and the traditional folk holidays these are based on are, at their heart, agrarian. They have been Pagan and they have been Christian, but they were always agrarian.

Brumalia

Brumalia is an ancient Roman winter festival incorporating many smaller festivals celebrating Saturn, Ops and Bacchus. The word Brumalia comes from the Latin bruma meaning "shortest day".

The Full Moon

The full moon occurs approximately every 29.53 days on about the 14th -17th lunar day when the entire moon is visible from Earth because it is on the opposite side of the Earth from the sun. If the moon passes through the Earth's shadow during this time, a lunar eclipse occurs. This happens about every six months.
