I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Disting - The Charming of the Plough

Time: Early to Mid-February, Normally Observed at First New Moon
Focus: Disir, Goddesses & The Beginning of the Planting Season
Overall: A time to honor the Disir (in a broad sense), Goddesses and those connected with the coming power of Spring - the Vanir, local land wights and Nerthus to name a few examples.

Charming of the Plow is a ceremony that marks the beginning of the planting season; when the first furrows are made in the fields. In the Old World that usually meant bonding with and asking for the blessing of Gods and Goddess, the local land spirits and perhaps anyone else who might help insure the crops are a success...

... I am so sorry, but this post has been combined with another and moved to my new website, The Pagan Calendar. It can be found here: The Charming Of The Plough
