Pagan Playlists - Spring Equinox 2018 Edition

by Denise, HPS of North Wyldewood Coven


Ahhhh ... more sunlight! 

When I awaken at 5:30am, it’s dark. However, the beauty of the dawn is only an hour or less away as I write this in mid-February. More light means life! Who cares if it’s nippy and brisk one day or f’n freezing because of bitter wind-chill factor the next because I believe now that the winter isn’t going to last forever. Of course I *know* about the four seasonal change, but I’m talking about feelings here. Understand, I love living in a climate with four seasons. I just don’t like extremes in temperatures for too long. 


In the throes of winter where it is dark and cold and wet I wish deeply to be able to hibernate like a bear. Now with the visible growing of the light, I imagine going to the park or working on my window-box garden. Opening the windows wide to let in the fresh-ish Brooklyn air and listening to the birds’ busy songs immediately brings on the urge-to-purge and physically clean my apartment. At the Equinoxes, I also spiritually cleanse, magick, and sure up my home protection. 


As with last Sabbat’s playlist, I was inspired by OzarkPaganMama’s playlists. I will put an asterisk next to the songs I got from her. 



Spring Equinox playlist! 


This playlist includes a meditation for grounding and strengthening by Mara Freeman. You might want to put it in a separate playlist, if you put the playlist on a loop, so as not too disturb the music flow.  


In like a lion, out like a lamb

The songs are in a particular order to evoke the feeling of coming from quiet to activity (of cleaning and dancing - yeah, I do that; not efficient but fun). Nothing gets me moving like a Celtic reel! So there are some traditional Celtic pub songs to get me moving. An alternate name for this Sabbat is Ostara, honoring the Norse goddess of spring; there are a few songs from Scandinavia. Icelandic violin has a very misty Otherworldly sound which I find appropriate for the fluctuating spring temperature and weather. The Wiccan goddess and the god are in their Maiden and Green Man aspects at this time of year, so sing, dance, and open your heart to the energizing spirit of spring!


Bright Blessings to you,

TSP's 2018 Imbolc Playlist



by Denise, HPS of North Wyldewood Coven


I love music. I love singing and dancing. As my teacher once said to me “pray once, sing twice” meaning spoken words are good, but singing adds more energy to your words of devotion, request, or gratitude. Add the body movements of dancing and your energy flows outward connecting you to the Spirit of Place, Nature, the Divine both within and outside of you. You are lifted. 


When a Sabbat approaches, I like to put myself in the flavor of the holy day(s). As a big Pinterest fan, I searched for everything pertaining to each Sabbat and came across Ozark Pagan Mama’s pins, one of which were Sabbat playlists! Oh the joy!! I’ve found that she not only has similar spiritual leanings as me, but also pagan/paganesque musical taste. 


To create my own playlist, I used Ozark Pagan Mama’s list as an inspirational jump-off point. Some songs she and I had in common. Once into my iTunes adventure, I explored musicians known and unknown to me. Sometimes I get a little tired of the twinkling-airy-harp and high-pitched voices that marks some pagan music. You may like my list or not. It’s a personal choice. Go out and explore!


Songs with an asterisk are from Ozark Pagan Mama’s playlist. 

All of these songs you can find on iTunes for purchase.
