As promised a quick mail now we are approaching the summer solstice, which for me is a very important time. It’s my new year (Wep Ron Pet), though many Kemetics mark this one first week of August I tend towards the Old Kingdom period which places it at the summer solstice.

Beltane was different for me this year. Normally I try and stay local but instead the random invite for a festival the other end of the country was too much to turn down. It was OK, windy, but not bad. Something to try again sometime.
The open Beltane ceremony at the Shakra Centre back on the 6th was amazing and if any of you came along then thank you. We had a larger group than the Samhain open of around 15-20 and this time the pagan content was almost everyone.
The extra icing on the cake was that for many of these pagans who came, it was their first attendance at a public ceremony. More and more are taking their first steps out into the wider world.
If you have yet to do so and want to then please talk to me.
There was also other changes, more of which to be announced in due course.

This booklet is for those of us who want alternatives to wordy
spells in order to forge our magical intent. The problem may be
caused by many reasons: perhaps we don’t have a poetic bone in
our body due to lacking skill, vocabulary, interest or even a lack
Remember, spells do not have to be words for there are many
ways to alter reality.
