Our Spring (yes,Winter is really ending - really!) Equinox High Day rite will be on Saturday, March 22nd, 2pm at the Ripley-Grier Studios, 520 Eighth Avenue, Studio 10C on the Tenth Floor. As we're going Greek this turn o' the Wheel, I'll turn over the rest of this invitation to our resident Hellenophile, Mario Pabon...
"Join New York City's Grove Inis Ull as we celebrate the Spring Equinox! We will be celebrating the Thargelia, the Ancient Athenian festival of the birth of Artemis and Apollo.
In antiquity this was a major festival of purification, and we will be doing the same after we ask the Divine Twins to join us as our Deities of the Occasion. We will be putting all pollution, fear, stress, anxiety, anything ugly in our lives that we wish to be rid of and, as a community, drive it out and cast it away.
Apollo is often associated with the Sun, purification, and healing. Artemis is the Mistress of Animals, protector of women, and associated with the moon. As the our world is at balance between night and day, let us celebrate the Light of Apollo and the Moon of Artemis in balance, and welcome their blessings of purification, to lead us to freedom from that which holds us down!
Bring offerings of wine, grains, olive oil, or anything you feel would please the Twins, along with one aspect of your life you greatly wish to be rid of.
