Welcome to Trillium Moon!

Our Mission:

Our group is striving to create balance within ourselves as individuals and as a group. We want give back to the earth and to our community by donating our time to those in need. Also, we would like to create a group for those individuals that have never fit into any of the belief systems out there today and whom have an interest in the nature based beliefs. We want to do whatever we can, within our means, to make the world a better place.

Feel free to look into our Meetup Group (Willamette Valley Pagans) as well!

Solitary or Group?

Solitary or Group

If you are new to the Pagan world or have been living the life for awhile , most of us probably started out as solitary practitioners. I am sure though that the majority have wondered what it would be like to be part of a similar thinking group.

My journey down this path started when I was about 16, at which time I had no clue that there was a name for it all or any of that. I only knew what I felt and where and what put my mind at peace. Then, I moved to the city where I found the stores that had books that would have never been available to me or would have been forbidden in my little hick town I grew up in. So this is when I began my life as a solitary Witch. I believe my first book was a Silver Ravenwolf, I then discovered Cunningham, Buckland and the plethora of other authors...

Herbs: Benefits of Nettles

Nettles - Photo by Greg FewerPart of being Pagan for me includes getting back to the roots of nature and even taking a closer look at those same roots. Plants I once thought of as nuisances had medicinal value not so long ago, so why have we lost so much of that knowledge? Most of us rely on popping pills or drinking sugary syrups to relief common issues. But though advances in medical technology are both wonderful and awe inspiring sometimes what goes into making these things aren’t always the best. Sometimes you just want to be able to control what you consume in a manor that makes sense to you. To know all the ingredients and where they came from. To that end, I’ve become interested in the common plants around us. Most of them have dietary and medicinal uses and are right under our noses...

Astrology: Leo

Leo-22Leo’s are represented by a lion and are a fire element. They are individuals who are magnetic and creative. They are also fixed in their opinions and can be hard to persuade otherwise. The biggest aspect of the Leo’s are their loyalty. They are loyal to themselves and they each have their own kingdom, think of the flags of old. Their kingdom can be anything from themselves, to their children, to their partner, to their careers.Leo’s can also be dramatic, they have flair for it. Leo’s are great hosts and they will make sure everything is taken care of, the one thing I truly admire about a Leo is their ability to just try. There is nothing that they will not try and they will take chances. Just remember to be kind to yourself and remember of all the positive things that you do.
