They say that February was made the shortest month because everybody wants it to be OVER WITH from the start!
February is one of the most primordial months. It's all about extremes. And, like the sabbat Imbolc, it's just as much about Fire as it is about Ice.
Fire and Ice are the Primordial elements that, in the Norse Tradition that formed to create our world. So this is a good time to think a bit about the Nordic Tradition; just what is and what it means.
The Heathens tell us that Polarities set up from Fire and Ice started Polarities in other realms of reality - even men and women. We'll talk more about that.
And we'll also talk more about Modern Heathenry and the Nine Noble Virtues.
Be well! Do good! Enjoy the show.
