Baby’s First Sabbat [Participation]

Published June 21, 2014 by Lunapo

Solstice Blessings to one and all!

I still find it hard to believe the Wheel has made a complete turn since my life has changes for the better.

Witchlette is going to be one in a few days.

Litha, last year, I was huuuuuuuge and loving it.

Witchlette came shortly after Midsummer and her first Sabbat was Lammas. She was just two months old. Mabon came shortly after, but she was just shy of three months old. Samhain came and she participated in the cultural aspect of Halloween but not the spiritual aspect of Samhain. The same happened with Yule, we did Santa and presents and a tree but we didn’t *do* Yule, at least not from a spiritual perspective. She was just too young at that point to really partake in anything. Imbolc came and went and Ostara was much like Yule and Samhain.

When Beltane came, I felt she was old enough to perhaps start, but I was too caught up in the comings and goings of life to really do anything myself. We took a nice walk but that was about it.

And now the Wheel has landed on Litha. Hubby, Witchlette, and I took a nice walk in the woods. There was a lake near by so we got to do an Elemental Blessing with all of the physical elements present (it’s hot enough to count for fire!) The wind blew right in cue to give us a full experience. It was beautiful.

Tonight, before she goes to bed, I will be beginning the candle in her lantern.

Bedtime Stories

Published February 26, 2013 by Lunapo

Currently, I am 21 weeks pregnant. Starting at week 10, Hubby and I began reading bedtime stories to Witchlet. It began with Dr. Seuss, the whole collection, moved onto some Little Critter, Eric Carle, Leo Lionni, and Chris van Allsburg. Lately, though, Hubby and I have been giving her a taste of the Pagan lore.

I have written about this collection before: The Gods of Asgard by Erik Evensen. The collection is chronologically organized from the origin story with Odin, Vili, and Ve and ends with Ragnarok. Each night, we have chosen a myth and read it to her as it is written in the story.

I know, this is not the end-all be-all of Norse myths. This is an interpretation of many myths, but does not contain all of them. However, it is a reader-friendly version. The language is not necessarily kid-friendly, which I appreciate. Not that there is swearing in the book, rather that the author uses high level vocabulary.

If nothing else, this book is a fine introduction to Norse mythology. I highly recommend it!
