Over the past decade, I've been lucky enough to have had lots of wonderful guests and topics on shows that are now just gathering dust in the vault. It's high time to resurrect some of the best Stirring The Cauldron episodes from long, long ago that most people haven't heard or have been long forgotten.
Every Thursday Night I will be Quietly tiptoeing down this seemingly neverending corridor to the vault (don't want to wake the mischevious Pixies or the off duty trolls) and picking out a new show for the week.
The Archive Show is on the hour before the Live Stirring The Cauldron show, So listen in at www.para-x.com. on Thursday Nights if you can, and if you can't make it, you'll find the Podcasts here.
Featured Show of the Week
The Pagan seasonal cycle is often called the Wheel of the Year. Almost all Pagans celebrate a cycle of Sabbarts, which are spaced every six or seven weeks through the year and divide the wheel into eight segments. Four of the Sabbats have Celtic origins and are known by their Celtic names, Imbolc, Beltane, Lughnasadh and Samhain. The other four are points in the solar calendar. These are Spring and Autumn Equinox (when the length of the day is exactly equal to the night), Summer and Winter Solstice (longest and shortest days of the year). Neolithic sites such as Stonehenge act as gigantic solar calendars which marked the solstices and equinoxes and show that solar festivals have been significant dates for hundreds of thousands of years. This podcast originally aired on New Year's Eve several years ago And since 2021 will be here before we know it, this just seemed like the perfect podcast to play and we start the holiday season.
