Invoking Cernunnos – Lord of the Beasts – for protecting Wildlife!

In view of recent Eco-protests and resulting connections with fellow supporters, I’ve been thinking about Eco-campaigns..  What gets us all down? 

It’s not the hardships of fighting..demonstrating.. campaigning.. that is the difficulty which many Eco-Warriors face.. BUT it is the despair of it sometimes.. that it might be a loosing battle.. as everything else seems overwhelming..!  

We make slow but sure progress..  some MP’s listen..  a government or a country bans wild life trade.. burns its stash of apprehended ivory and animal products..  sends  a clear message to poachers!

But despite this..  elsewhere.. poachers get in to protected wild life parks in African lands, and kill protected Rhinos..or Elephants.. That is sad, frustrating, and demoralising..    It can even loose hope in the hearts of the Campaigners!!

 

Eco-Magic?

While am at it, another point of despair for me personally is seeing the `lack of numbers’ of Pagans/Magicians who turn up at these protest & campaign events!    Yes, everyone says they worship nature, and they do magical work for the world and animals..   but I am not seeing much talk about it..or evidence of that kind of activity..  Raising a pint of beer and wishing for animal wellbeing is all nice and well..  but when do we re-start doing serious Eco-magical rituals..in parks and woods..and public places..  and start thrusting that energy deeper into the human collective? (Dragon eco-magical group, established by Dr.Adrian Harris have been doing it for decades.. But who else?) 

A magical call for Hope

So with that in mind, I shall call on my fellow pagan/ shamanic/ magical people…to do some eco-magical workings.. simply..to keep all us Eco-warriors positive..hopeful..and confident!!

So..We shall invoke Cernunnos.. an ancient shamanic/horned deity.. who is the `Lord of all beasts’ (animals).. !

May Cernunnos protect all the wild beasts, and instill power and strength in those of us who fight to protect those wild beasts!!
