Beginning Again

I have often felt the Season of Lammas as a beginning: perhaps it is all the black fabric and ribbons I use for decoration and expressing the celebration of the waxing dark. Black offers such a fresh start, a total dissolving, all slips away and new formation is possible: a merciful immersion. This poem below […]

Lammas/Imbolc Season Feb 2018

In the Southern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing dark, post-Summer Solstice; and in the Northern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing light, post-Winter Solstice.  At this time in Earth’s annual orbit, which is our everyday sacred journey, Earth makes the post-Solstice transition, crossing the midpoint (the “cross-quarter”) between Solstice and […]

Lammas/Imbolc Earth Moment

In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the Season of the waxing dark … we are transitioning to the cross-quarter moment between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox: it is the time to celebrate and nurture the new dark, and our native allurement to the Dark whence we come and to whom we return. At my place […]

Solstice Moment December 2017 C.E.

Persephone’s Return or Departure?

Sometimes one can’t tell – is it a departure? or is it a return? It is often both – a return involves a departure. Persephone leaves one world to return to another; always it is so. Sometimes She is escaping miraculously from oppression of some kind, yet other times it seems She is simply making […]

The Seasonal Moment of Equinox @ EarthGaia comes around again at 20:02 UT on the 22nd September – the second for this Gregorian calendar year of 2017, and it is Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.  At my place East Coast Australia that is 6:02 on the 23rd September … and all global […]
