Scotland 2020 Wait-list

We are bowled over by the positive response to the announcement of our Temple pilgrimage to Scotland in 2020! Already we have enough registrations to fill all of our planned slots!

However…those spots are not reserved until all deposits are in, so we are starting a wait-list. If there are any cancellations or incomplete registrations among those earlier registrations, that spot will open up for the next person on the wait-list in the order in which they registered. So, if you still want a chance at joining us in Scotland in 2020, make sure to register before registration closes!

Visit the Pilgrimage to Scotland page for details on the trip and to fill out the online registration to be added to the wait-list.

A Spell for Rainbow Resistance

The theme of this year’s Boston Pride Parade is “Rainbow Resistance” and the call to stand up for equality, fairness, and justice in the face of prejudice and intolerance is more needed now than ever.

Of course, as Witches and magicians, we have additional tools when it comes to our resistance, as the #MagickResistance hashtag on social media demonstrates. So the Temple’s marching group is making these cards available along the parade route, and the Temple’s Gemini ministry is sharing this image here and on social media for those elsewhere who would like to support our effort.

Work your magick, whether alone or with allies, in whatever manner you see fit. Call upon your divinities, spirits, and ancestors to support you, and then act in accord in everyday life to help bring about the changes that are needed. As it has been written…so mote it be!

Join Us at Boston Pride!

The Temple’s Gemini ministry invites all interested marchers to join us on Saturday, June 9th to march in the 48th annual Boston Pride Parade! The theme of this year’s parade is “Rainbow Resistance” and the Temple will be marching to show our support for equality, queer rights, the notion that every being is divine, and that “all acts of love and pleasure” are our rituals.

Please see our Facebook event for details and updates. We will post our line-up time and location along Boylston Street in Boston as soon as we receive it from the Pride committee, usually a day or two before the march, asking marchers to meet us there ready to go! If you’re looking for us the day of the march, head down Boylston Street and look for our banner.

If you have questions or would like to confirm your intention to join us at the Pride march, please email

A safe, blessed, and joyous Pride month to all!
