PAN AND CERES

8c1d830c-1969-41fa-a846-73f05285dd46

As goddess of the Earth and agriculture, Ceres is depicted wearing a bundle of wheat spikes on her head. Beside her, Pan, the god of shepherds and herds, has a crown of oak leaves. Ceres symbolizes cultivated nature and Pan, wild nature. The horn of plenty and basket of fruit in their laps alludes to the fecundity and fertility of the Earth, which is strengthened by the fruit and vegetables strewn around them.

The Witches Dance

20150515_151314.jpg

Old wild wood deep therein
Amid ancient gnarled trees
Where it glows & is agleam
Neath full, fair-faced Selene

Near caves hallowed over time
‘Twas fraught with orgies in his name
Betwixt foggy, craggy mountains
Wherein echoes are contained

The heart of the forest, herein
By the moon-soaked river bed
When starry Nyx embraces us
The time is near , & we’ll begin

You’ll hear us witches chanting
You will see us witches dancing
Whereas we’ve come to honor him
Our lord, the Great-God Pan!
