Inis Ull invites you to join our Spring Rite. This is the time of the year
when the day and night are equal lengths. The sun is getting stronger,
and soon life will be restored to the land as we move towards the new
harvest, new growth and the summer.
Three of the last four rituals have been focused on honoring the divine feminine.
Now we will be honoring the divine masculine. We hope that this kind of work will
restore balance to the feminine and masculine energies in ourself, our
grove, and in the world.
We’ll be calling on the Roman British God Viridius to help us to celebrate the spring and encourage
growth. Very little is known about him, but he is thought to be a god
of springtime and possibly associated with the Green Man.
The Romans occupied Britian, or what they called Britania, and gave
many of the British Gods latin names. In this way the Romans
appropriate the Gods of Britain, often comparing them to their own Gods,
and causing a lot of confusion! Like most occupying forces, they built
shrines and temples directly over older existing shrines and groves.
In this way the Romans imposed their own Gods upon Britiania. On the
other hand the Britanians sometimes were able to preserve their own
traditions and continue their worship under the guise of Latin named
By working with these Roman British Gods today, we reach
down under the imperialistic and hyper masculinized Latin names, and
hope to touch the ancient, more balanced, and still verdant divine
masculine in the form of the British God or Green Man
This ritual is open to all. You are encouraged to bring offerings.
