Riding the Wheel

I first encountered a wheel image during a pathworking (guided meditation) in 1998, yet it wasn't until 2002 that I made the spiritual connection to Taranis. I was at Pagan festival and had decided to take a walk in the misty rain through some nearby fields. I had been feeling disconnected from the Gods for sometime, and felt I needed to just clear my soul and perhaps find a new starting point. So I walked through the tall grass and rounded the base of a small hill, which I began to climb. Upon reaching the top, I stood there and looked out at the threatening clouds. I thought that perhaps it wasn't the best idea to be standing atop a hill in a thunderstorm, but maybe it was where I needed to be. My heart had guided me here, to find the path I was meant to walk. It was then that the sky above me broke and an amazingly loud roll of thunder echoed throughout the hills. I gasped in awe. The dark sky had turned a silvery colour and as I looked up and into the swirling clouds, I watched as a pattern formed. There in the sky, as raw and honest as the storm I was standing in, was a wheel. I fell to my knees and wept.

So was my calling. It was then that I dedicated myself to Taranis, though now I feel it was HE who chose me.

From windy hilltops and rolling glen,
In the lightning flash I have seen the Wheel turn.
The sound of change echoes through the mist and rain,
and I can feel your thunder pulsing in my very spirit.
it is to you that my path leads,
to ever receive your blessings.
May I always feel your strength in my body,
your presence in my head,
your light in my soul.
So may it always be.
