Buzz Coil: September 2015

Some recent posts from blogs on our blogroll (please note, we don't knowingly list posts in Buzz Coil that have been published previously elsewhere or on the same blog). Please excuse the variation in some of the font sizes. I have tried to fix this in both Explorer and Firefox, but couldn't fix it all and had to stop due to persistent carpal tunnel syndrome.

Hearth Moon Rising’s blog: Blogger Hearth Moon’s September 18 post is a “Call for Contributions” for authors of books related to spiritual feminism published in 2015. The books and authors selected will be featured on Dec. 16 during an hour-long part of a 9-day Solstice video project hosted by the Mago Academy.  Hearth Moon’s September 11 post, “What’s in a Name? Part Part III (Shaman),” explains the relationship of the terms “Witch” and “Shaman.”

 The Wild Hunt:  Heather Greene’s September 27 post, “Goddesses Alive! A Ritual in Masks,” which will be presented at the October 18 Parliament of World Religions, gives the background on previous presentations of this ritual theater piece, the creation of the masks by Lauren Raine, and the script by Aline O’Brien (aka Macha NightMare) and helpers. With video showing masks.

Yeshe Rabbit: Rabbit's September 16 post, “Empowered Surrender,” confronts the “impermanence” of life, including death. 

The Retiring Mind: In her September 25 post, “Hearing Within,” Wendy Griffin writes:
“My spiritual life is Earth-based, I am part of that blue-green web that is Gaia. The stories we have told ourselves have put that web in danger. Until I began focused study of the issue, I didn’t realize just how serious the situation is or how immanent the danger is.”
With video of her lecture on the subject.
She also announces what mask she will be wearing in the performance of Goddesses Alive! at the Parliament of World Religions in October.
The Motherhouse of the Goddess: In addition to several posts about Motherhouse activities, on Sept. 8 priestess and founder of The Motherhouse Kimberly Moore posts “Blessings of the Sweet Waters — Happy Oshun Day,” in which she describes Oshun as a Goddess and her “Guardian Orisha.” With a video interview with Luisah Teish. In a September 24 postthis blog reprinted, with my permission, my review of Jeri Studebaker’s book, Breaking the Mother Goose Code, and added a pic of one version of Mother Goose.

Annelinde’s World: Annelinde Metzner’s September 11 post, “Reaching,” is written from the Catskill Mountains to her grandmother and sisters, and begins:
Each mountain a Lady's breast,
I feel Her body, Gaia’s self,
Speaking, speaking.”
Her September 9 post, a poem called, “September Light,” is accompanied by several pics.

Alchemy of Clay: Potter Barbara Rogers September 16 post is a poem, “Am I the earth?” that begins:
I lie down to sleep
On Her waters
To sleep and be washed clean

HecateDemeter: Blogger Hecate has posted several posts beginning September 9 about Dion Fortune’s book, The Magical Battle of Britain, including a September 12 post, “Only a Story, Born of a Story,” about a Gardnerian coven, dreams that witches had in Britain in 1940, and a Lammas eve ritual during which a cone of power was raised against Nazi Germany.

Glenys’s blog: Glenys Livingstone’s September 9 post, “Equinox EarthGaia,” explains the astronomical and mythological relationships of the two simultaneous equinoxes on our planet.

Works of Literata: In a September 22 post, blogger Literata discusses the relationship of water to “autumn and the western direction,” including this observation:
"At this time of the equinox, we like to think about balance, and it’s easy to get caught up in thinking of that balance as a single point, the perfect moment of equality, as if that were a stable thing. But it’s not; even if that moment of balance happens for a second, it’s because of the motion around it, through that moment, which makes the balancing possible.” 

Woods Priestess: Blogger Molly’s September 16 post offers a "Ritual Recipe: Fall Equinox Gratitude Ceremony.” On September 16, she began a series marked “(#30DaysofHarvest),” with a post on “The Coming of Autumn.” She is writing this series as part of a course she is taking.
No Longer Qivering: A September 23 post by Samantha Field, “Huckabee and the Downfall of Western Civilization,” is a response to the most recent Republican presidential candidates’ debate and focuses on what is meant by “Western Civilization” and its relationship to fundamentalist and evangelical Christianity.
