Hello everyone! It’s Sunny Anyone who may be watching closely may have noticed that there was not a lot going on on Facebook in regards to our Spring Equinox ritual. I thought I would just let you know that the ritual did indeed take place. The last several years spring equinox has been one of our smallest rituals that we hold. Only a few very special people make it out, creating a deeply intimate atmosphere. Although I myself did not get any pictures of the event, I did notice something funny a few days later.
We frequently choose a Hellenic Hearth culture and discuss the story of Persephone, Hades and Demeter. This particular Equinox was much the same, although we did include Dionysus because it seemed appropriate in the moment. Days later I was finishing off the bottle of wine that we used for the Waters of Life. If you know me you won’t be surprised by the fact that in this particular instance I was running a bit late. I ran into Target and perused the wine, rushing as fast as I could to pick something appropriate for the day. Prophecy is a winery run out of New Zealand (Let’s be honest, I didn’t know that before this post. That is significant to me personally!) and their labels always catch my eye. Yes I am one of the people that buys wine based on the label judge away! As a habit I always pick red wines, but that day I couldn’t resist this beautiful label. I grabbed the very unusual white wine and ran to the ritual as soon as I could. It suited us fine for our Waters of life.
A few days later I was feeling a little down due to the overcast nature of the weather, and I decided to treat myself to a glass of the remainder of our wine. As I sit ruminating on the label which I find so appealing, I noticed something interesting. Pomegranates . Of course this label features pomegranates. All of my hair is still standing up on end. What else do you see? I do not believe in coincidences. Hail Persephone, Demeter and Bacchus.
