Hekate's Sickle Festival 2019
Hekate's Sickle is an annual exploration of the mysteries of the Goddess Hekate in all her forms. Overcoming the boundaries of death and change, we offer a sacred space for transcendent experience, the growth of ecstatic community, the perfection of love and trust.
Hekate is the Goddess who walks in all realms. Her realm is the Crossroads that move between the worlds. Each year as the veil grows this at Samhain, the magical pocket dimension Land's End appears; Bringing with it Hekate, and a new realm of magic to explore!
This year Land's End opens upon the world of the Sorori Fortuna, or The Sorority of Fortuna, as they introduce their newest member: Fortuna Mamosa! Mamosa brings the traditions of the Astrological Wheel and Mardi Gras itself! Bring your coins, beads, and your gold/green/purple finest. Get ready to explore the depths of Astrological space, and celebrate at the heights of ecstatic revelry in the Pagan New Year!
This event is held annually at Samhain, on or around Halloween weekend. During the festival, participants will engage in sacred metamorphosis that allow them to honor the grief and death aspects of the Wiccan belief structure, undergo healing experiences that will help them move from the dark half to the light half of our year, and celebrate the promise of resurgence of life. While many festivals explore the summer or spring concepts, Hekate's Sickle is unique in the fall/death/magick/after life concept.
