Within KOTH every turn of the wheel I ask my students to continue their education. Each Samhain I ask them to choose topics to study in depth throughout the turn of the wheel.
There are many topics we require and I won't list them all here. But every year I try to have a theme per say within my studies. As I think ahead I was not sure what to choose for this coming year's Samhain. So instead I am going to go "back in time" so to speak. I am going to re-establish my "Roots" if you will.
For the Turn of the Wheel 2014 I will be dedicating myself to the following.
Yep I am really returning to my roots. When I first moved to Michigan, one of the first groups I began to circle with was that of Green Witches. My mentor Jackie to this day is still teaching students and having Moonlodges in her home. She's such a beautiful and strong teacher. From her I have learned many things about herbs and the Goddess. The broom she made for me still hangs in my kitchen to this day.
So I am going to go back to my roots and relearn. Refresh and replenish what I have lost from being sick this past year. In January they took me off one of the medications Benlysta and I have been feeling like crap ever since. I would so give back the past few months and put up with a few days of being sick to feel better 25 days of the month instead. (sighs)
It is what it is...and onto a year of rebuilding. Not only my physical self but that of my mental and spiritual as well. So a few of the things I will be dedicating myself to is:
Divination: Tea Leaf Reading
Tasseography is the reading of tea leaves that remain in
a tea cup once the beverage has been drunk.
Aceso (Greek Goddess of curing illness)
Chiron (Greek Centaur known for his ability of healing)
Coriander aka Cilantro
I have actually never studied Cilantro before (at least not that I remember) my electronic BOS died when my previous laptop did. Another reason why I am choosing to do my research in my blog instead. Hopefully by doing it here it will be saved for future reference.
As you can see from the above, all items are associated to Healing in one form or another. So my theme for the Turn of the Wheel 2014 is that of HEALING.
I hope you come back to see what I have tried and what has worked or failed.
I hope to be more active in blogging again. I have missed you all.
