Happy Full Moon in Scorpio

Happy approaching Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18

Happy approaching Full Moon in Scorpio on May 18, 21. 11 UTC in Scorpio. It is called among some Native North American nations Full Flower Moon, Big Leaf Moon or Planting Moon and so is eagerly awaited in colder climates as the moon of blossoming life and growth.

Combined with the intense energies of Scorpio, this Full Moon promises transformation inside and out, the fulfilment of any urgent wish or desire, regeneration, rebirth, renewal and growth - and as Scorpio reminds us the time to clear the way for those new energies by weeding out what or who is stifling your freedom and enthusiasm.

Anything is possible, for this is the Moon of Bariel, the Angel of small miracles to whom you can light a circle of seven burgundy or indigo candles any night over the next few days and say for each candle, Bariel, angel of small miracles, give me the power to move forward and the initiative to make my own small miracles happen every day.
Leave your candles to burn through.

Most importantly Full Moon in Scorpio offers protection against physical, emotional or psychic attack and jealousy and from anyone seeking revenge, so you can be free to be who and what you truly are without fear, disapproval or criticism.

Pass a Bariel Full moon crystal, obsidian, onyx, rhodonite, brown zircon, Desert Rose, black pearl or aqua aura seven times through an incense stick smoke in mimosa, pine or mint, Bariel’s fragrances and ask for the strength and focus to make that supreme effort, to get out of the rut, the doldrums, inertia and routine, to leap out of the stagnant pool into the fast- moving river where you can go with the flow to the open waters of endless possibility.
Maybe you will at last find your home or realise that home is wherever you are and turn with pleasure and not a little courage your face to the intensity of the rain, the sun, the winds and greet and meet life head on, maybe for the first time in ages and know freedom.


HAPPY BELTANE from Sunset on April 30 to sunset on May 2

This is the second major festival or Sabbat of the Year. Beltane or Beltain is named after the Irish Bealtaine meaning ‘Bel-fire’, the fire of the Celtic god of light, known as Bel, Beli or Belinus. Also known as May Eve, May Day, and Walpurgis Night, Beltane occurs at the beginning of May. It celebrates coming of the old summer and the flowering of life. The Goddess manifests as the May Queen and Flora, Goddess of Flowers whose festival was celebrated in Ancient Rome in early May.

Animal: cow

Tree: hawthorn

Incense and herbs: almond, angelica, ash, cowslip, frankincense, hawthorn, lilac, marigold and roses for love.

Candle Colours: dark green, scarlet and silver candles

Crystals: Sparkling citrines, clear crystal quartz, golden tiger’s eyes, amber and topaz.

Symbols: As a focus, gather fresh greenery, especially hawthorn (indoors only on May 1), any flowers that are native to your region. Dew is especially potent when gathered on May 1 morning – traditionally girls would bathe their faces in it, You can substitute pure spring water left for a moon and sun cycle in a crystal or glass container, beginning at sunset on April 30.

Deities: Sulis (Minerva). At the sacred Celtic hot springs at Baths, the Romans built their own magnificent healing edifices, combining the indigenous Sulis, the Celtic Sun Goddess and resident patroness of the sacred waters at Bath, with their own Minerva Goddess of Wisdom.

Beltane rituals

These are for maximising the fertility energies first experienced at the Equinox, whether for conceiving a child or bringing a business matter to fruition. They can improve health and increase in energy, optimism and self-confidence as the light and warmth move into summer.

Sundown on May Eve heralded the signal for Druids to kindle the great Bel-fires from nine different kinds of wood by turning an oaken spindle in an oaken sockets, on top of the nearest beacon hill, for example on Tara Hill, Co. Meath, in Ireland, former home of the Dagda the hero gods of old Ireland. As time went on every village would have its Beltane fires which were attributed with both fertility and healing powers.

Young couples leapt over the twin Beltane Fires, ran between them or danced clockwise. Cattle released from the barns after the long winter, were driven between two fires to cleanse them of disease and ensure their continuing fertility and rich milk yield for the coming months.

But the chief feature of the festival was the custom that dates back to the first farming communities and finds echoes worldwide of young couples going into the woods and fields to make love and bring back the first May or hawthorn blossoms to decorate homes and barns. May Day is the only time of year, according to tradition, that hawthorn may be brought indoors.

May Baskets filled with the first flowers of summer were left on doorsteps of friends, family, lovers and the elderly and infirm, a custom that is worthy of revival in every community and home.
Beltane is therefore a festival potent for fertility magic of all kinds, whether conceiving a child or financial or business ventures bearing fruit, for an improvement in health and an increase in energy as the light and warmth move into summer.

As a focus gather fresh greenery, especially hawthorn (indoors only on May 1), any flowers that are native to your region, placed in baskets; gather dew potent especially on May 1 morn when girls would bathe their faces in it, or pure spring water left for a full sun and moon cycle in a crystal or glass container.

Personal Activities

A Beltane fertility ritual

This can be carried at any time when you need fertility on any New moon or on Beltane Eve.

  • Secure each ribbon underneath in a loose knot to another so they form threes; saying:

  • As one becomes two, becomes three,
    So three to six to nine,
    Winding, binding,
    Babe of mine (or wish if it is another fertility matter).

    I have a knitted cradle that folds like a bag over the baby within, or you can buy large pottery or wooden hens used for holding eggs. But any lid will do - even the lid of a silver-coloured wok. Magic is all about adapting the available tools, rather than modifying or not carrying out a ritual. Our ancestors managed remarkably well with the hedgerows and fields as source material and much of today’s most potent magic has a simple countryside origin.

    Throw the pieces on to a bonfire or fire in a domestic hearth and look into the embers to see pictures of a brighter tomorrow.

    A joint Beltane and Samhain twin apple ritual

    Apples represent life and health and fertility/creativity.

     

    The Place on the Wheel

    Beltaine or Beltane is named after the Irish god of light, in whose honour fires were kindled at this time by rubbing wood together.

    Sundown on May Eve heralded the signal for the Celtic Druids to kindle the great Bel-fires from nine different kinds of wood.  At this time cattle were released from the winter barns and driven between twin fires to cleanse them and to invoke fertility as they were released into the fields.

    Winter was finally dead as at midnight on May Eve Caillieach Bhuer, the old hag of winter, cast her staff under a holly bush and turned to stone until six months later on Halloween.

    A time of great fairy activity, especially around standing stones and stone circles.

    Sacred wells are very potent on May 1 both for healing and fertility.

     

    Ways of Marking the Festival in the Modern World


    As we hear of yet another tragic attack on innocents in Sri Lanka, our heart and blessings go out to those who have suffered loss or whose family have been injured needlessly by wanton destructiveness. There are no excuses for such evil, no true religion could ever condone such slaughter. It is understandable to despair and avoid going on holiday overseas or indeed to theatres and concerts at home for nowhere seems immune from danger.

    Yet if we restrict our lives, terrorism has won and we have lost our freedom, so we have to go on, being vigilant but not constantly looking over our shoulders or staying indoors.

    Hard though it is, we cannot, must not stop believing in the innate goodness of the majority of humanity of all races and creeds.

    Nothing diminishes the evil done to innocents and we must all, of every race and creed, speak out and unite against those who are prepared to kill whoever is in their path of destruction. Yet we must hope and will not give up.

    But those of us who have our families safe today, we should speak words of love and gratitude and forgiveness for old hurts and guilt imposed unfairly and be glad we have them and our friends still in our lives, uninjured and able to build new moments of joy and reconciliation. Now is the moment to appreciate and to reach out across superficial divisions and petty differences to build a shared tomorrow that maybe can endure in our homes and with loved ones and spread outwards like a ripple in a pool, in our community, our land and one day, impossible though it may seem, perhaps through the whole world. Each one of us is a light that together can shine in the darkness.




    Happy Full Moon in Libra

    Happy approaching Second Full Moon in Libra

    What could be luckier or happier than two full Moons in Libra in the same year, one in March and the second following in April, the first heralding in the Aries Sun sign, the second bidding it till we meet again. Venus ruling Libra and Mars Aries, so a match made in heaven, though it doesn’t always work out that way on earth.

    The April Full Moon is on April 19 at 11.12 am UTC and is called among various Native North American nations the Flower Moon or Pink Flower Moon, Spring Moon or Sugar Maker Moon, as the maple sap is flowing. She is also the Pascal or Easter Moon for Easter Sunday falls on the Sunday after the first full Moon after the Spring Equinox and some say the tradition of Easter eggs comes from the first egg laying around the Equinox that were offered in thanks.

    Originally myths tell us, eggs were painted in honour of Ostara, the Norse Goddess of Spring and new life called Oestre in the Anglo Saxon tradition who gives us the name of Easter and oestrogen. Some Eastern European traditions tell how the Virgin Mary decorated eggs to delight her young son.

    The double Libra is the happiness moon through balance within yourself and not only through others; another try for strengthening or mending commitment, marriage, family, friendship and work relationships based on mutual respect, but offering freedom within caring, willing love, not tied up in the guilt and obligation web, independence based on support not sacrificing your principles for a peace at any price compromise.

    There may be relationships and situations not working out, that are hard work or where we have made mistakes or been less than loving and we may not know how to put things right or we feel betrayed where others have let us down. Decide what did not flourish but which is still worth pursuing, a relationship too precious to abandon without another last ditch all- out effort.

    Do not give up on people or situations where there is still hope and love or where we discovered what we thought was perfect was human and so flawed and that we ourselves are also mortal, not angels or demons. But if you are being pulled in two ways and your loyalties being tested or you are constantly acting as peacemaker and referee keeping the balance between people or factions who thrive on having you as the audience-and sometimes getting blamed by both- try this ritual as the Libran Moon shines down.

    An anti-guilt trip ritual for restoring balance when two or more friends, family members or work colleagues are pulling you in opposite directions.

    You will need

    A blue cord long enough to tightly hold between your hands.

    A dish of salt.

    Timing

    Around the Libran Full Moon.

    Happy April 2019

    Happy April from Cassandra and Debi

    April is named after Aphrodite, Greek goddess of love, the sea and beauty and also Aprilis, a goddess of the Etruscans, the people who once inhabited central Italy.

    A good month for love and fertility, creativity, increase in any aspect of life, especially health and money, for enhancing inner radiance, healing and happiness; also for makeovers and healthy eating regimes, gentle exercise and energy work, creative arts, visiting beautiful places and spending time in nature, making your workspace harmonious and prioritising what makes you happy.

    This month avoid noisy, soulless environments, trying to fit in with people who rub you up the wrong way, arguing on matters of principle with stubborn people and trying to economise unless absolutely necessary.

    The angel of April is Asmodel, the Creator of what is of worth, surrounded by pink rays.

    Asmodel or Ashmodel is the angel of beauty, inner as well as outer and especially finding beauty in nature, even in the centre of a town. She offers us persistence, patience, reliability, loyalty, the expression of practical abilities and stability and tells us to value our own beauty and worth ignore anyone who makes us feel bad.

    Her challenges are stubbornness, occasional flashes of temper and over concern with material things.

    The April Birth flower is the daisy/ Marguerite

    The daisy was said to spring from the tears of Mary Magdalene at the crucifixion and was traditionally known as ‘the day’s eye’ or ‘God’s smile’. This was because the flower opened with the sun in the morning and closed at night.

    Mediaeval knights wore daisies when they went into battle as a sign that they rode in the name of a lady whom they loved. A knight wearing a double-headed daisy affirmed that the love was reciprocated. The daisy, a flower of Venus, is the most commonly used for love divination, as lovers pluck the petals chanting, ‘He/she loves me, he/she loves me not’. It is said to be a talisman for all who are pure of heart and loyal in love. A daisy root can bring back an absent lover if placed under a pillow at night.

    The Colour of April is Pink.

    The Crystals of April are rose quartz, jade and emerald.

    April’s Incenses and oils include rose, apple blossom and violets.

    An Asmodel Angel of April ritual for increasing your charisma and radiance if you are feeling overlooked, unloved or unlovable.

    You will need

    A mirror you can see your head and shoulders in.

    Five pink candles along the base of the mirror so their light reflects in the mirror

    Timing

    Any time in April, for five days after dark.

    Happy Full Moon in Libra

    Happy Full Moon in Libra and Equinox

    Happy Full Moon on March 21 at 01.42 UTC in Libra and another Supermoon, which appears larger than usual because it is closer to the earth than usual. A special Moon for it coincides with the Spring Equinox in the Northern hemisphere, so a double dose of new beginnings and energies backed up by the oomph of the full moon.

    Balanced Libra ruled by wise angel Zuriel who cautions reason and restraint, has his work cut out keeping his excitedly anticipating flock from throwing their knickers in the air, But the Equinox energies give Libra a helping hand , for it is the time of balance, albeit briefly, equal day and night. So not a time for flirting or giving way to temptation unless you have thought out the consequences all the way to the alimony and who keeps the dog.

    Nevertheless the surging full moon gives birth a new and maybe different but well thought out future and that future will be about choice and not what was all that was on offer when you first signed on the dotted line after a glass or three of wine.

    This is the happiness moon through balance within yourself and not only through others; remember when New Age met the Bible? Loving yourself as much as you do others or maybe a smidgeon more; yes, another try for strengthening or mending commitment, marriage and work partnerships, based on mutual respect and offering freedom within caring, willing love, not tied up in the guilt and obligation web, independence based on support not sacrificing your principles for a peace at any price compromise.

    So this Moon assists us in getting the balance right in love and family relationships, friendships and work partnerships, a wonderful moon for togetherness or realising that you have everything you need within yourself, that you do rather like yourself as you are and for whom you are and that the future is yours to fine tune or change as the moon is rides high.

    Happy Equinox wherever you live in the world.

    Even if the dawn of the Equinox may not be as promising as we hoped, let's seize every moment and make it glorious and let not the sun go down on anger or regrets. Too late are the saddest of words and there is still time as the balance of the year brings all into equilibrium and harmony as Autumn and Spring join forces, to give thanks for the many blessings we have and can share; a special Equinox as we remember all who sorrow because of the tragic losses in New Zealand and ask that balance be restored to the world so all may live without fear or intimidation.

    In both hemispheres, we can recall the story of Ostara the Norse goddess who opened the gates of Spring. She found a small dove frozen in the snow and great goddess that she was, she knew that even if she revived it, the dove would not live. So she transformed the dove into a snow hare and said, Run and whenever people see you running they will remember my promise that new beginnings and better times are present even in the darkest moments and new life will return from that darkness.

    There may be relationships and situations not working out, that are hard work or where we have made mistakes or been less than loving and do not know how to put things right or where others have let us down. Decide what did not flourish but which is still worth pursuing, a relationship you do not want to give up on, a dream or project that seems slow in fruit, but which is the light within you , your reason for going on and so too precious to abandon.

    Go with all your heart for change at this moment when all is possible, but do not give up on people or situations where there is still hope and love or where we discovered what we thought was perfect was human and so flawed and that we ourselves are mortal not angels or demons. Reach to the future but take the best of the past with you.

    As I prepare to move from the southern to the northern hemisphere via Vietnam on Equinox day to see my son Jack and his wonderful partner Tara, to be with my beloved family again, my heart is in both hemispheres .I carry the fruits of kindness and laughter of my time in Australia and the sun of the seeds of new dreams I will plant back home that may blossom by the time I come back again in September, just after the next Equinox, to the land of the red earth and endless shimmering horizons of promise.

    Blessings to all affected in New Zealand by this dreadful tragedy and to all who risked their lives to rescue those in danger and who are caring tirelessly for survivors and the bereaved. We cannot, must not give up believing in the ultimate goodness of humanity and in love and peace, hard though it is. For once we do, terrorism whether perpetrated by a lone being set on destroying the innocent, a hatred fuelled group or cynical evil organization, has won. It may seem useless lighting candles and sending blessings, but every positive energy however small, in the name of hope, is a statement in belief that the world can and must one day become a better place. Senseless killing is as old as humanity, but so is the kindness of strangers and those who daily work to make life better for others in need.

    This tragedy does put into perspective for those of us unscathed what are sometimes relatively insignificant worries, petty grievances and vague dissatisfactions that cloud our minds and toxify our thoughts. For we who are alive and well and fretting over trivialities, as I was when I heard the news of the New Zealand massacres, we are reminded of what really matters, the gift of life. A time then to give thanks for those we love who may sometimes drive us crazy but are going to walk through the door tonight or text or mail us, time to forget old quarrels, coldness and divisions with family and friends. A day to rejoice in being alive and remember we are the lucky ones.




    Happy March 2019

    Happy March 2019

    Named after Mars the Roman God of War, this was the month war and conquest resumed after winter and was the start of the Roman year as late as 153 BCE. Mars was also the Guardian of agriculture and the ancestor of the Roman people through his sons Romulus and Remus who founded Rome and so March also marked the start of the farming year.

    The month is good for courage, action, passion, overcoming obstacles, for physical strength and independence, self-confidence, strong identity, innovation, assertiveness and the power to move life forward, for action packed holidays and getting fit, tackling bullies or inequality, passionate love, initiating or launching new projects of all kinds especially business or an innovative scheme and getting rid of what holds you back.

    Avoid negotiations with people who are intolerant or prejudiced, activities involving detail rather than the big picture, working as a lesser team member where you have knowledge and expertise and will get irritated, being restricted physically or following a set programme where there is no room for your own spin on it.

    Since this was the first month in the old calendar and the third month in the modern calendar, it is under the guardianship both of Michael the Archangel of the Sun whose year it is and so an excellent year for positive new beginnings and of Sachiel the Archangel of expansion, promotion and leadership and success by reaching out for what you most want and need.

    The angel of March is Machidiel (or Malahidael), the innovator and warrior angel with sparkling golden-red halo and wings.

    The colour of March is red, its gems and crystals, orange carnelian, diamond, Herkimer diamond and the courageous undefeatable red and green bloodstone. The March flowers are daffodils, geraniums, hibiscus, hollyhocks, honeysuckle and tiger lilies and the incenses and oils most potent in this month are cedar, cinnamon and Dragon’s Blood.

    A Machidiel Angel of March ritual for getting what is right when you know you are being misrepresented, bullied or cheated

    You will need

    An email printout, official document or judgement you know is wrong. If verbal abuse, spite or misinformation write in black on white paper what is inaccurate or unfair and who says so.

    A red pen, Machidiel’s colour.

    A pair of scissors.

    Timing

    Any time in March, but close to the beginning is especially potent.

    The Spell:

    Happy, happy March.




    Happy Full Moon in Virgo

    Happy Full Moon

    Happy Full Moon in Virgo on February 19 at 15. 53 UTC. Called the Full Snow Moon in parts of Native North America this is also a Super Moon, the largest and brightest moon and closest to the earth moon this year.

    The Virgoan full moon is the moon of health and healing, of striving for perfection, for completing any detailed matters and checking small print, for finding new employment especially if you have been jobless for a while or hate what you are doing, for developing skill with crafts, for gardening, protecting the environment and for keeping to diets and sensible exercise regimes, not extreme but gentle actions such as walking, swimming or cycling so you feel fit, harmonious and balanced.

    Lady Moon in Virgo will also assist in reducing the effects of chronic illness or pain and any form of addiction, phobias or compulsion, for helping children and adults to become more coordinated and feel less self-conscious and a moon for triggering an interest in learning about natural remedies. Above all she protects against those who would scam, con or deceive the vulnerable.

    The full moon in Virgo is ruled by Hamaliel the angel of perfection who tells you not to judge yourself too harshly or always try to put in 300% of the input at work and home especially if others are not grateful or take advantage of your high ethics and conscientiousness. Make this the moon when you start to refuse to accept second best in any part of your life, but strive for the best and in return ask for the best from others.

    Her colour is green, her incense is fennel or patchouli and her crystals jade or aventurine
    Light a green candle, sprinkle a little salt into the flame and ask Hamaliel to help you complete a difficult task where success will open new horizons for you. If you are in a difficult situation when you are doing your best against seemingly impossible odds blow softly three times into the flame and ask for her assistance and relief. Blow out the candle and know as the full moons shines so all shall be well.

    Finally if you or a loved one is ill, try this ritual as the Virgoan moon wheels through the skies or the day or two after when the energies are still powerful.

    You will need:

    Three green candles of ascending sizes set in a row, smallest to the left.

    You can carry out this ritual for someone else, naming them at the beginning of the ritual and throughout it and then speaking on their behalf.

    Happy Moondays ahead.




    Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Pig

    Happy Chinese New Year of the Brown Earth Pig

    Starting on February 5 and ending on January 25 2020 the Year of the Pig is beneficial for all 12 Chinese zodiac signs as well as those born in the Years of the Pig 1923, 1935 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019 and between the hours of 9pm and 11pm, considered as the hours governed by the Pig.

    Those born in 1959 (February 08, 1959 - January 27, 1960) and 2019 (February 05, 2019 - January 24, 2020) are Earth Pigs. While Pig characteristics are shared by all Pigs, the year energies will be affected by the Earth aspect, in itself very positive and steadying.

    The Pig is friendly, likes comforts and luxury, is the eternal optimist, loves freedom and beauty and naturally attracts good luck. Pig people are generous, altruistic, home-loving, diligent and chivalrous but can be extravagant and over-indulgent. They can also be suspicious of new people and situations and may not see over the horizon, can be over- reliant on the familiar, stubborn and materialistic. They are nevertheless smart in getting out of trouble and persevere to the end and will have money opportunities. In 2019 there may be small setbacks in career, but these will turn out well if they don’t give up.

    It is important for Pig people to balance work and rest for maintaining health. They are lucky in relationships but female Pigs need to persevere if they haven’t yet met the right person. They include Humphrey Bogart. Al Capone, Hilary Clinton, Henry Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, Ronald Regan and Arnold Swarzeneggar,

    Pig Years are ideal for entrepreneurs and a good time to develop business. The later months of 2019 are best. They are also good for bringing long-term projects to a successful conclusion and for the welfare of those less fortunate. Beware, however, of giving more than you can afford and falling prey to cheats, especially in money.

    Special flowers include the hydrangea and marguerite, lucky colours are yellow, grey, brown and golden and lucky numbers 2, 5 and 8 , also combination numbers containing them. Lucky directions are southeast and northeast.
    The Best love matches are the Goat, Rabbit and Tiger.

    THE TWELVE CHINESE YEARS

    On his last New Year on earth, Buddha called all the animals to his side. Only twelve came and as a reward Buddha is said to have given each one a year that would reflect its personality.

    Each person is born under one of the twelve years and the year itself bears the characteristics of the animal. Because the date of the Chinese New Year can vary from late January to mid-February, people born around this period can find that they may belong to the year before.

    BIRTH YEARS

    The Years run in twelve year cycles, so if your birth year is not listed below, add 12 or subtract multiples of 12 to bring you to the nearest birth year listed. For example if you were born in 1912, add twelve and that brings you to 1924, the Year of the Rat. So you too are a Rat. The order of the animals never varies.

    SECONDARY ANIMAL CHARACTERISTICS

    We all have another side to our nature. This may be especially strong if you were born close to the Chinese New Year. The secondary animal can explain your conflicting feelings and alert you to hidden strengths. According to the time of the day or night you were born, your secondary animal can be found.

    The animals of the birth times are very stable since they are not affected by the date of the Chinese New Year. However, if you are born at a cusp time, you may find that you share characteristics of the adjoining animal. If your birth year and birth time animals are the same you may have a very strong personality, but should beware inflexible attitudes.

     

     

     

     


    We Wish You A Very Happy February.....and IMBOLC or OIMELC The first festival of spring (or in the southern hemisphere, Lughnassadh)



    Imbolc January 31 to February 2

    Imbolc means ‘In the belly of the Mother ‘and refers to the potential for growth in whatever way is most relevant in your life.

    In the northern hemisphere Imbolc is January 31 to February 2; in the southern hemisphere it is July 31 to August 2.

    The first festival of spring often when the land is still frozen is a reminder that new life stirs within the Earth and within people long before the effects are seen or felt externally. 

    This was the all important time when sheep and cattle give birth to their young and so fresh milk and dairy products were first available to the community after the long winter in early agricultural societies.

    This was in a number of pre Christian traditions the festival of the young maiden goddess. But it is also linked with the story of the newly delivered mother of the sun king whose milk is mirrored by the milk of the ewes who gave this festival its name of Oimelc or Ewe’s milk. 

    The Dark twin is still powerful as reflected in the cold weather and dark days but the young God of light is growing in power as he is nursed by the Goddess.

    The Christian Candlemas, the festival of candles, took place on February 2, the day of the Purification of the Virgin Mary on which she took baby Jesus to the temple for the first time.

    Ways of marking the festival in the modern world

    Happy Lughnassadh to my Southern hemisphere friends

    This is traditionally the festival of the first grain harvest but can be used for any harvest of any produce and a personal harvest. 

    The God promises to defend and die for the land. The Sun/Grain god is willingly cut down in the form of the last sheaf of grain to be harvested and his spirit descends into the earth, back into the mother’s womb, to be reborn on the Midwinter celebration as the infant Sun King. The decisive battle of the Light and Dark twin cannot take place till the Autumn Equinox six weeks later and so the myths divide again. 

    Some versions say the fatal blow to the Light twin is delivered at Lughnassadh but the Light twin lingers wounded for another six weeks until the Autumn Equinox

    In both the pre Christian and Christian tradition called Lammas or Loaf mass a loaf baked from the first harvested sheaf was offered on the altar.

    FULL MOON TOTAL ECLIPSE

    FULL SUPER BLOOD MOON in LEO with a total eclipse! January 21st

    January brings us a very exciting full moon. This is a rare lunar event combining a Super Blood Wolf Moon with a total lunar eclipse (the only one this year). The eclipse will be visible from western parts of Europe and Africa as well as the USA and South America. The eclipse begins 21st January 02:36am (UT) in the UK and lasts 5 hours 12 minutes from start to finish, with total coverage time of 62 minutes from 4:41am (UT).

    It is called a super moon because it appears larger than normal, as it is closer to the earth than usual. The moon appears redder due to the eclipse when the sunlight passes through the atmosphere, the shorter blue wavelengths are spread outside the Earth's shadow and the longer red wavelengths are refracted towards the Moon. Dust and clouds in the atmosphere can affect the brightness of the colour.

    This first full moon in January is known among the Native North Americans as Wolf Moon because the wolves could be heard howling at Mother Moon at the hungriest time of the year, the time of the clan sharing whatever they had left.

    This full moon in Leo, because of the eclipse, intensifies your awareness of your relationships, emotions, family life and especially private life. It is the perfect time to take an impartial and open-minded look at your relationships to identify any problems. It is a good time to resolve any issues and start again with a clean slate. A powerful moon for reaching out dynamically and without doubt or fear of failing or falling.




    HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019

    We wish you all a very happy January 2019

    January is ruled by Janus, the Roman god of gates and doorways, who has two faces looking in opposite directions, sunrise and sunset, endings and beginnings. In January, we step through the door from the past, remembering we still carry aspects of the past within us, good and bad, good memories, experiences that have shaped us, all those plans started in 2017 we can bring to fruition this coming year.

    The most important thing to leave behind as we step through the doorway are those burdensome redundant voices in our head, the garbage from years past or venom spit recently towards us that clutters up our thinking and fills us with doubts that we can succeed. You always fail, the words drone on even at 2am when we cannot sleep, the old put -downs of negative parenting, disparaging teachers, destructive exes, jealous colleagues rekindling dusty doubts in our minds. Why should this year be different -and the first slip in our fledgling resolutions brings a flood of Told you so from those cobwebby ghosts gloating on our shoulder.

    Better, every time we doubt or slip back into an old habit, fear or situation we resolved to leave behind with the chiming midnight New Year bells, to tell the detractors and distractors, many long dead or gone from our lives, firmly and loudly to shut the door as they scuttle back to the shadows. And consider, if those people are still dragging you down, whether you actually need them around.

    This month, let the temporary setbacks go, do something small to make yourself feel good again and start again from that point. New Year resolutions aren’t a once and for all, all or nothing, but a step by step. Make January the month of each day bringing a new chance to get it right, so by February you are striding ahead confidently towards your new goals.

    If the New Year resolutions are already proving too hard, maybe you were asking the impossible of yourself, whether fitness, diet, quitting bad habits or fears or making major life changes before you are fully ready. Take it slower, reassess what is realistic and a sensible time scale given all the responsibilities and stresses you have already and above all focus on what you really want for the year ahead.

    As January progresses we move into the sway of Cambiel, the Guardian angel of your personal identity and blueprint, who advises us to step back from unnecessary emotional pressures to be or do what others expect, not least those pressures we impose on ourselves through regurgitating messages cast up from our subconscious that should long since have been blown away by the passing of many New Years.

    This is your January, your future, your life a garden to be planted with whatever to you is beautiful and of worth and the choking weeds that hold back the growth can be gently but firmly pruned, especially if those doubters live on in your lives and you have to see them regularly.

    To grow your own lovely future slowly and in the way you choose take a tub of sunflower seeds or seeds from any golden flower, flowers of Michael, the Archangel of this first month of the year.

    May your January be filled with inner if not outer sunshine.
