By Happiness & Joy, Inspiration, Paganism, ShoppingNo Comments

Hello all!

Welcome to 2019. So far, my January has been really busy. But I wanted to share with you my latest purchase. This gorgeous slate wall artwork:

pagan-wall-artwork

Avebury Tree Goddesses by Kate McKenna.

It’s called Avebury Tree Goddesses by Kate McKenna. It’s gorgeous and I love it. High quality shaped slate with a beautiful print on it.

I discovered Kate McKenna’s artwork on The Wonky Cauldron, which I discovered through an ad on Facebook.

Kate doesn’t have her artwork on sale on her website, but The Wonky Cauldron has a wide range of her artwork available to buy.

I’ve spotted another slate with Avebury Stone Circle on. I think I might have to buy it to compliment the one above.

Blog soon,

Horned God Statues

By Paganism, Shopping, The Web2 Comments

For me paganism is about balance: light and dark, night and day, summer and winter, masculine and feminine and the Goddess and the God. Paganism is neither matriarchal or patriarchal, but both at the same time.

When it comes to statues of the Goddess and God, it seems that most pagan creators view paganism as matriarchal. You can find many statues of the Goddess in all of her forms (maiden, mother and crone). But finding statues of the God in any of his forms (youth, father and sage) is all but impossible.

Earlier in the year, I managed to buy these two horned God statues from The Goddess & The Green Man:

Here are two Horned God Statues that I bought from The Goddess & The Green Man.

Then about a month ago, I stumbled on a listing of lunamoodchild’s on ebay. I instantly fell in love with the statues she creates. Here’s a photo of the gorgeous, stunning and handmade God statues:

Gorgeous Horned God Statues by lunamoodchild on Ebay.

Lunamoodchild also creates beautiful, exquisite, and handmade Goddess statues and sets containing one statue of each or two of the same.

I’ve already bought several, which have filled up my altar. I will be buying more for presents for pagan people.

Blog soon,

A Sensational Sunset

By Friends & Family, Happiness & Joy, NatureNo Comments

One of my New Experiences for 2013 was to see the sun rise and set. A few weeks ago I did manage to see a sensational sunset. It was the first time I’d truly observed a sunset. Click on any photo in this post for a full size image.

At 8:30PM Simon & I parked up in a lovely spot overlooking Rivington reservoir. The sun was due to set at 9:30PM and other people were around. The sun still shone bright and I felt the heat on my skin that emanated from the sun. There was a cool breeze that carried noise from the other people: cars, car radios and chatter. I was feeling excited to experience something new and yet frustrated at the distracting noise from the other people.

As the time approached, most people had gone which made it quieter and I was thankful for this. Simon & I sat on a bench and even nature seemed to go quiet. The only sounds were from the rustling of the trees that swayed in the fresh breeze. The breeze it’s self felt colder than before. The daylight had dimmed in the direction opposite to the sunset. The sun released orange ambers and reds that filled the skyline and reflected off strips of clouds. Time seemed to slow down.

I felt a new appreciation for the life giving warmth and light of the sun. I felt totally relaxed and able to be truly in that moment – without any intruding thoughts. I enjoyed the beauty and magic of the sun.

The sun began to make it’s decent over the horizon; I noticed the moon rising on the other side. The moon’s luminescent glow grew stronger as the sunset. The transition from dark to light across the sky was phenomenal. I savoured the final rays of light feeling awe struck and enchanted. I realised that I’d taken for granted that the sun will always rise and set.

The final moments of the sun’s day go quick – it took 5 minutes to completely disappear from sight. I glanced at my watch and noticed that it was precisely on time. I took a deep breath, the transformation from day to night was complete.

sunset-2013-8 It was a magical experience, almost spiritual; that made me fully comprehend why some people did and others still do worship the sun.

The contrast from light to dark, as the day transforms to night is magical. At one point the sun and moon even looked almost in balance.

The sun is currently rising far too early for me, but I’m hoping to see sunrise later in the year.

Take care,

Antony
