Playlist for Wheel of the Year: Spring Equinox

Over the years, I have created rituals to celebrate the Wheel of the Year with my wife and children. Music has been an essential part of the experience. Without it, it would be much more difficult to create the sense of sacred time and space and to evoke the experience I desire for each ritual. So I want to share with you my playlist for each station on the Wheel of Year. Here’s the second list. Enjoy! And share your suggestions in the comments below.

Ostara / Spring Equinox

Mythologically, at this time of the year, the Bright Youth becomes the Stag King and courts the Flower Maiden. The Goddess and her Con­sort mate and the Goddess conceives the Sun Child who will be (re-)born at the winter solstice. The Flower Maiden matures into a woman and is transformed into the Lady of the Beasts, reflect­ing her new sexuality. The Stag King and the Lady of the Beasts are betrothed.

“Freya and Frey” chant by Thorn Coyle and Sharron Knight

Hail to Freya, beauty of the North
Seer of the hidden realms within
Whose golden braids entwine the hearts of lovers
Be welcome, lusty queen of wild things

Hail to Frey, king of the Bright Ones
Whose fortune glows amber all around
Scent of pine, Keeper of the forests
Be welcome, Lord of Elves, and claim your crown

“Rising Green by Carolyn McDade

My blood doth rise in the roots of yon oak.
Her sap doth run in my veins.
Boundless my soul like the open sky where the stars forever have lain
Where the stars, Where the stars, where the stars forever have lain
My hands hold the weavings of time without end
My sight as deep as the sea.
Beating my heart sounds the measures of old, that of love’s eternity
That of love, that of love, that of love’s eternity
I feel the tides as they answer the moon rushing on a far distant sand
Winging my song is the wind of my breast and my love blows over the land
And my love, and my love, and my love blows over the land.
My foot carries days of old into new, our dreaming shows us the way.
Wondrous our faith settles deep in the earth, rising green to bring a new day.
Rising green, rising green, rising green to bring a new day.

“Here Comes the Sun” by the Beatles

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it’s all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
and I say it’s all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes…

Little darling, I feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it’s been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
and I say it’s all right
It’s all right
