Audio transcript:
"My friend, you in your time and place and me in mine, are having a mystical meditation, contemplation, of the constellation of Pisces and all it means.  It's a water sign you know, dual, connected with fishes.  We may smile at our ancestors thinking there are fish in the sky, but I would have you know that the Magi of the past came to our simple ancestors and gave them profound spiritual truths by using not only the names of their wildflowers and trees and their own names, but what they called the constellations.  Thus, they would ask: 'what is that in the sky?' And the people would say: 'ah, so they/them are two fish tied together'.  And the Magus would say: 'ah my friends, I have something to tell you about those fish', and they would use that part of the sky with its radiations tuned-in to what the people called it.  Hence, profound mystical truths were given to the human race through the vast picture book that we call the sky.  And the people said the Gods from the sky taught them, and beings - possibly denizens from the stars themselves, Sirius, wherever - came and taught them great mysteries beyond any of our sciences."
Olivia also wrote this meditation of the constellation of Pisces:
"Companions, let us contemplate the constellation of Pisces! We see the pale form of the fishes, the North-Western fish's tail near Aries holding the place of the Spring Equinox. Above shines Andromeda and her Mother Cassiopeia. Flying near the Eastern fish is the glorious winged horse Pegasus! Below Pegasus, replenishing the sea of Heaven is Aquarius and below the fishes is Cetus the whale. When Dione with Her Son Cupid fled from Cetus, the Goddess was rescued by the Piscean fishes, who carried Her and Cupid to safety on their backs. For Venus is exalted in Pisces and none may harm Her who rules the starry sea! Behold the river Fluvius Eridanus flowing below Cetus, and to the East of the fishes rises the White Bull of the Sea, Taurus. Know that the constellation of Pisces brings dreams and fantasies and the sound of distant bells of forgotten lands below the sea. Let us surrender to the tideless sea and allow our souls to float at ease in contemplation of the Mystery of Pisces. . ."

Imbolc Festival Report

"At the open Well of Brigid, Her words arose
fresh and vibrant as the day they first came to Olivia,
and our Steward joined with us in Invocation
and all were blessed with water from the Well."
