Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet


The seasonal pivot point occurs today and many Satanists mark that change as we feel at one with the Earth and its continuing cycles. In the Northern Hemisphere Spring arrives, replacing the Winter’s desolation with renewed life surging in triumphant burgeoning. In the Southern Hemisphere, the glory of Autumn shall soon cast its soothing spell after the fiery blasts of Summer, presaging the coming harvest with all of its fertile abundance.

Here in the haunted Hudson Valley, we recently experienced Winter’s dramatic last hurrah with about two feet of snow falling in a day. We shall thus be listening to Stravinsky’s masterpiece The Right of Spring as it conjures the shattering of the frigid season’s strictures via the violent renewal of growth.

It is a glorious day to celebrate the wonders of Nature as we are part of its boundless mysteries.

Hail Satan!
