Britain's Wicca Man – a documentary

April 18th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

For those of you interested in magic, pagans, and/or Wicca, a new documentary about Gerald Gardner is soon to be released.

Britain’s Wicca Man, produced by Matchlight, features narration by pagan expert Professor Ronald Hutton and delves into the history of modern pagan witchcraft, Wicca, and Wicca founder Gerald Gardner himself.

From a small forest coven born in a 1940s British nudist colony, Gardner began what’s become one of the fastest growing religions in the world.

He may have looked a little nutty, but apparently a lot of people over the last seventy years have liked his message.

Take a look at the trailer below. I can’t wait to see the whole film!

Moon in Aries – High Priestess in the Emperor's Clothing

High Priestess dressed as the Emperor

High Priestess dressed as Emperor

The Moon moves into Aries today and will stay there until Saturday.

Translating this transit into Tarot Cards, it would be like the High Priestess is wearing the Emperor’s clothing. She’s in scarlet and armor and is ready for battle.

The Moon in Aries, or High Priestess in the clothing of the Emperor, is a time of intensified emotions. You might feel an increased desire to shape your own world.

Rather than sitting back in stillness, this transit encourages the loosening of emotional restrictions and the conscious expression of enthusiasm and/or passion.

It might be uncomfortable at first, but allow yourself to speak out loud. Take steps forward to let people know what you know and what you love.

Try to remain objective and open-minded while acting with determination and direction. It might sound impossible, but you can do both if you try.

This is a day for looking forward.  You’ve got some time and you’re in a good position to look around and see what you want to do next.  The world is literally in your hands and it’s up to you to decide the next move.

What is it that makes you feel most in control of your domain?  What is it that makes you feel you’re really doing what you’re supposed to be doing?

Don’t rush this – it takes some serious consideration.  Use this time to start getting a grip on your destiny.  You’re in charge of this one.  Don’t be afraid to take control.  Your option is to let someone else.
