eagle in the rain

Imbolc Playlist

Admit it.

Sometimes pagan jams are a bit too folksy or ambient for a gathering. I feel you. I love my ambient folk as much as the next witch but as your prepping the food, gathering the herbs, or post rit as the circle opens and it’s time to just hang skyclad with your coven in the hot tub after your group bathing ritual. You want something that hits a wider variety of musical tastes. 

I made this list with the idea that I could listen to it on the lead up to a Sabbat to get pumped and then as the party track list for while we’re doing the stuff before and after circle. Each track is themed for the Sabbat and I tried to hit as many genres as I could. 

That said, I can’t know all music. what else belongs on this playlist?

It was very damp and misty–which some people from outside the Pacific Northwest consider to be rain, but I do not. This is typical weather for the Pacific Northwest and Olympia. It is often wet in Olympia, but we have an average of only 49.95 inches a year of actual precipitation. That’s less than in Denver. In Olympia, the air is damp, and water collects and drips from everywhere. We do not get big downpours, but we get damp and spongy.

I don’t care. It helps the trees grow, and I climb the trees.
—  The Eagle Tree, by Ned Hayes 
As usual at this time of year, the sky was filled with fog and the air all around us was misty. My mother had the windshield wipers going, to wipe away the accumulated mist. But it was not really raining. If you stepped outside of the car, you would only gradually get damp, and only after a few hours would you actually be soaked.

I am merely explaining this because I have seen that people write about the Puget Sound region in the Pacific Northwest having a lot of rain. And this is not technically accurate. We do not have large amounts of rain that fall on us. Instead, we have a constant very low level of precipitation. It is as if we live inside of a cloud for nine months of the year.
—  Ned Hayes, The Eagle Tree

I got a basic lazy eagle! Which I think is pretty cool with there being no eagles in that type

Quote: Rain rain go away, come again some other day.

I based him off of a teru teru bozu because that’s what his head shape reminded me of when I was sketching the base. I feel like I should have done more with him, but terus are actually very plain looking.

Thunderbirds are powerful spirits found throughout most of North America. Accounts of these beings vary depending on the people who tell of them; sometimes the thunderbird is a singular being while other times it is a species. It may be dangerous or helpful. Sometimes it can take on human form by removing its beak like a mask and live among humans for a spell, even becoming ancestors to a group of people. But there are common traits of the thunderbird. Similar in shape to the eagle, the beating of its wings creates the rolling thunder and pulls the clouds together. Lightning flashes from its eyes or beak. And these thunderbirds could influence or control the rains.

Classic rock quotes for the signs


Bruce Springsteen, Dancing in the dark.

You can’t start a fire without a spark,
this gun’s for hire,
even if we’re just dancing in the dark.


Guns ‘n Roses, November rain.

So never mind the darkness
We still find a way.
Cause nothing lasts forever
Even cold November rain.


Eagles, Desperado.

Freedom, well that’s someone talking,
your prison is walking all through life alone.


Steve Nicks & Don Henley, Leather & Lace

I have my own life
and I am stronger than you know.
But I carry this feeling,
when you walk in my house,
that you won’t be walking out the door.


Fleetwood Mac, Silver Springs

Time casts a spell on you,
but you won’t forget me.
I could’ve loved you,
but you wouldn’t let me.


Eagles, Tequila sunrise.

It’s just another tequila sunrise,
this old world still looks the same.


Skid Row, I remember you.

Remember walking hand in hand.
Love letters in the sand.
I remember you.
Through sleepless nights, though every endless day.
I wanna hear you say, I remember you.


Pink Floyd, Wish you were here.

So you think you can tell heaven from hell, blue skies from pain.
Can you tell a green field from a cold steel rail, a smile from a veil?


Steppenwolf, Born to be wild.

Get your motor running.
Head out on the highway.
Looking for adventure in whatever comes my way.


Aerosmith, What it takes.

Tell me how it is that you can sleep at night without thinking you lost everything that was good in your life,
to the toss of a dice.


Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Crimson and Clover

Ah. Now I don’t hardly know her.
But I think I could love her.
Crimson and clover.
Over and over.


Kansas, Carry on my wayward son.

Once I rose above the noise and confusion. Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion. I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high.

Toruk the harpy eagle…..by San Diego Zoo
Early South American explorers named these great birds after Harpyja, the predatory half-woman, half-bird monster of Greek mythology. Harpy eagles have excellent vision that allows them to see something less than 1 inch in size from almost 220 yards away. But the feathers on the top of the head, which can be fanned out into a bold crest distinguishes this raptor from other eagles. Toruk’s keepers say he seems to raise these when he is curious, but biologists also theorize it may help the eagle break its silhouette in the rain forests of Central and South America where they are found. With a wingspan of up to 6.5 feet and a weight of up to 20 pounds, the harpy eagle is the one of the largest raptors in the Americas and is the strongest in the world. With excellent eyesight, incredibly strong talons, a shorter wingspan and a long tail to duck and dive through trees, this eagle is well equipped for hunting.

Incorrect Protron Quotes (idk 13?)

Tory:Alright everyone, we’ll address each other in codemanes! From now on you may call me “Eagle One!” Eim is “been there, done that!” Raine is currently doing that! Kalla is “It happened once in a dream!” Beast is “If I had to pick a dude!” And my siblings!……. Eagles two and three!

Para onde vai um coração selvagem?
Segue buscando a liberdade
em cada palmo desse chão
leva consigo na viagem
um sentimento, uma vontade
e a força bruta da paixão…

¿De dónde viene un corazón salvaje?
Va en busca de la libertad
En cada rincón de esta tierra
Lleva en el viaje
Un sentimiento, una voluntad
Y la fuerza bruta de la pasión…
