Cycles Throughout Nature

People, over time, notice patterns in things. Overall, we are exceptional at pattern recognition*. As such, we did not need to know how it worked – necessarily – to know when to plant and harvest the crops. A person could still plot to use the cover of the night and the new moon for nefarious deeds. Surely, at times, everyone enjoyed the predictability of the moonlit sky bringing cool and dark.

Many of these such cycles are incorporated into many branches of paganism, as well in many formulations of magic over time. Join us on our next segments of Pagan Quills, where we will begin to explore the many ways that natural cycles influence spirituality. As above, so below – so they say. Our pagan inspired writing prompt of the day is to write about something cyclical. Perhaps the moon, perhaps the seasons. Happy writing ~


*then again, so are crows. I don’t necessarily think we are very good at applying what we’ve learned, at least not without significant effort. ~TJ Rune
