Green and Red

There are no known meteor showers in August radiating from a point somewhat South and West of Orion, so I knew I was looking at a loner. Very bright, she was, for me to see her from the highway in Johannesburg with a nearly full moon just setting at 5:30 this morning. You know a meteor from an aeroplane, from a satellite, when you have been watching the skies for more than 40 years. She exploded briefly in an orange flash as she hit the denseness of the atmosphere, and was gone.

There is, indeed, Fire Under the Earth in this locality, at this time. South African Pagans have done a sterling job of turning the Wheel this Imbolc, for you can feel Spring is here.

From migratory birds starting to flock, through almost undetectable pheromones on the air, to the attitude of the human animals, all things conspire to tell us that Brighid’s forge is powering up in the land once again.

My Lady has shed Her leprous white aspect, and is now pale green. Lady of vegetation, Lady of the plants.

My Lord is stirring to full awareness, Lord of the creatures.

The Green and the Red I shall call upon to rebalance my soul when I put my own shoulder to the Wheel on Friday.
