 Welcome.  Have you felt the fire?  Have you felt the rain? Have you touched the mud? Have you smelled the incense? Can you see the change? Can you feel her presence walking in the woods? Look, there She stands.  The Forest Protector Artemis! Hail Artemis Protector of the forest and animals. We offer you ___ to protect our animals, our forests. We offer you __ in thanks and in honor for what you do.  Participants walk under the path of arrows shot from Artemis’s Bow. When all have been blessed return to circle center.

Can you feel his presence among the fields, among the roots?  Look, There He stands. The Golden God, riding on his mighty boar, Gold-Bristled!

Now is the time to put affirmative intent into the seeds that you have planted last we were together. Accept the energetic blessings of Artemis to protect your will. Accept the energetic blessings of Freyr to grow your will. Accept the energetic blessings of the essence of Fire, of Loki, to allow the necessary change within ourselves. When all have fortified their intentions begin the closing.

 Your intents have been reinforced, it is up to you now to make them manifest. Once more feel the energies, merge with the energies present. Honor them and thank them. Our time in this sacred space is coming to an end. The influence remains. Let us depart with what we needed. Sound the Horn.

To West

To South

To East

And

To North,

Thank you for sharing this time and space with us. Leave if you must but know that you are welcome always to stay.

The Golden One

Through the whipping Rains

The singing Winds

The Rumbling grounds

The lightning sound

I can be found.

 

Through the screaming words

The swinging fists

The haunting alone

You can endure

 

In My eyes

Through My touch

With My Breath

You can be healed

Pray to Me

The Golden One

Apollo

Faith

Faith

By proxy
By UPG
Does it matter
Is it the same
A leap of faith
A walk down the insane
Do you see
Can you feel
Is your filter clogged
Do the drugs awaken
Do the prescriptions cloud
Is your culture ignorant
Is your society ambivalent
Are you neighbors malevolent
Are you strong enough to hear your own drum
Are you brave enough to walk alone.
