Sitting on the edge of the Autumn Equinox I find myself reflecting on the magic of Summer and how 3 months can slip by so quickly. It seems only last week I was celebrating the zenith of the Solstice sun, and now I am admiring the of turning leaves. Over the next few weeks, I will share tales I was too busy to tell during the hubbub & sunshine.

My summer was filled with unexpected, last-minute plans that placed me exactly where I needed to be at precisely the right time. It started with having nothing scheduled for the Summer Solstice. This alone was unusual as it was the first time in 22 years that I did not have ‘big plans’ for the holiday. For 20 years I hosted a Medieval Costume party on the Solstice, and last year I traveled to Mount Shasta in California on sacred pilgrimage; spending time in deep magic/connecting with one of the planets Chakras. The fact that this was the 22nd Solstice in the count did not slip past my Numerology-focused mind. I immediately began to wonder what was in store for this year’s Sabbat.
22 is a Master Number (master numbers…11, 22, 33, etc), meaning it vibrates at a higher frequency than other numbers. Often referred to as ‘the Master Builder’, it carries the potent energy of action & getting things done.
Sabbat- any of the 8 holy/sacred days in the pagan year connected to the turning of the seasons.
Shortly after this, I received a last-minute invite to the blessing of a Stone Circle that had just been completed in Springfield, Vermont…

The Druid Tloog
The Awen Circle was created on the sacred lands of Green Heart Farm in Springfield, Vermont through the co-creative energies of the Druid-Daniel ‘Tloog Gorey and the stewards/owners of the land, Cynthia and Christopher Berg. The circle had only been completed days before the Solstice, and the blessing ceremony was put together on short notice; as a smart Druid knows to take advantage of something as energetically charged as the Solstice Sun!
Upon receiving the Circle blessing invitation I fully understood why my calender had remained open on such an auspicious holiday; having just completed a 5-year spell it only made sense that something memorable should happen, and I can’t think of many things that hold memory longer than a Stone Circle.
In continuation of the magic that held us in its story during the holiday sun my sister Sandy accompanied me on my journey south to the Awen Circle. She had quickly agreed to join me after I had discovered that Springfield neighbored the town of Ascutney. This information made us curious indeed, as my sister and I had another magical working that we had been plugging away at for the last 4 years…Gridding the Chakra Ley Line. We had only one point left to the grid, the Heart Chakra, which just happened to be at Mount Ascutney.
