Eggscellent Day!

Eggscellent Day!

Today, Christians celebrate their well-worn myth of a savior risen from the dead. Some neo-pagans might esteem the relatively obscure female deity, Ēostre. Satanists note that traditions for this day stem from aspects of the Spring season and thus tend to enjoy the rising of dormant vegetation. There is much beauty in the early flowers now abounding. Since we are free of any holiday obligations, we might choose to ignore this date altogether. Yet, we diabolists may enjoy whatever we find to be pleasing from festivities associated with this time of year. Why not indulge in things that might bring us […]

TO EACH HIS OWN Today, Christians celebrate the well-known myth, lifted from earlier pagan religions, of a savior risen from the dead while some pagans esteem the relatively obscure female deity, Ēostre. What might Satanists do while others honor the “walking dead” Nazarene or a goddess of the dawn? We are free of holiday obligations, so we may ignore this date altogether. However, enjoying whatever one finds pleasing from festivities associated with this time of year would also be proper for we diabolists. While candy is often a part of this day, shunning those wax-like brown effigies of hares and […]

EXQUISITE EQUINOX! 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 […]

EXQUISITE EQUINOX!

Greetings to all who feel consonant with the Earth’s seasonal changes! In the Northern Hemisphere we are delighted to embrace the arrival of Fall, portending harvest bounties, briskly cool evenings and the visual blaze of turning leaves. Denizens of the Southern Hemisphere find that fecund Spring is upon them as Nature awakes and stretches forth, rousing from her frozen torpor. We who embrace life with abundant passion celebrate the majesty of our world and the myriad pleasures offered by vital existence. Here’s to a sublime new season of lavish indulgence! —Magus Peter H.

While candy is often a part of this day, avoiding those wax-like brown effigies of hares and eggs in favor of more delectable and well-wrought chocolates could be in order. […]
