Moons of Manifestation

You can fill your coffers and reduce your stress by mind. When the moon is waxing, growing from a new moon state towards full, this is a time to sow seeds and plant crops, and cast spells for attracting things into your life. Use this lunar waxing time to attract the new into your life. When the moon is waning, gradually getting smaller from a full moon state back into a new moon, this is a time to harvest crops, cut your hair, and shed that which you no longer want in your life.

We'll be enacting the Men's Mysteries, the rites of initiation into manhood, for young N. next summer, so until then he's apprenticing with the Warlocks of the Driftless. That's how he came to be part of the Raising of the Bull Stone at Sweetwood Temenos in SW Witchconsin this past weekend.

From conception to erection, the event has been some five years in the making. Moving the Stone from its original bed in the wall of the coulee (ravine), across said coulee, and up the other side to its current location on the shoulder of Sweetwood Ridge, took only four work days in all, but since we meet only twice a year (and took time off for the pandemic), it's been a matter of years to get to this culminating moment.

Now the six-foot, 1000-pound, 240 million-year-old slab of pre-Cambrian Wisconsin limestone stands proudly in its new shrine.

As the youngest present, it was N. who climbed down into the pit to deposit the foundation offering. So it is that the Stone, which was already old before the dinosaurs existed, now stands on the back of a Bull.

When I drop N. off at home again early Sunday afternoon, his mom comes out to meet us. She doesn't say a word, but her eyes ask the questions.

“The circumcision went beautifully,” I assure her. “He was very brave.”
