What's Your North?

It's a basic question of being-in-space: where do you face?

Orientation. The word itself documents the immemorial tendency of both Indo-European and Semitic cultures to face East.

Qibla (“direction”) is the Arabic word, and in Islam has come to mean specifically towards Mecca. (Qibla ultimately comes from the same Proto-Semitic root as Qabala, lit. “received,” but there's no real connection.) In Old Craft we say “North,” because the Old One sits in the North and that's the default, well, North.

The Power of the North, the Wisdom of Earth

Dear Readers,

I apologize for the formatting wonkiness of my posts to this blog.  I think I've exhausted potential remedies.  However, I still want to keep in touch with readers and share my thoughts to those who may be interested in reading them.  Therefore, this time at least, and possibly in future, depending upon Pagan Square policies, I'd like to share what I've been struggling to post here by directing you to my Broomstick Chronicles blog here:
