Category Seasonal Moments @ EarthGaia

Lammas/Imbolc @ EarthGaia 2019 C.E.

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 […]

December Solstice @ EarthGaia 2018 C.E.

This is the Season of Solstice, celebrated by many on the Planet; when Earth’s tilt leans both hemispheres, South and North, to the furthest point in relationship with Mother Sun, our Source of life and being. It is the Seasonal Moment when the hours of light or dark peak, come to fullness; and there is […]

Beltaine/Samhain Moment @ EarthGaia

On November 7th at 11:18 UT EarthGaia, our Planet, crosses the midpoint in Her orbit between an Equinox and Solstice. In the Southern Hemisphere it is the Season of Beltaine/High Spring – in the lightest quarter of the year, moving into Summer. In the Northern Hemisphere it is the Season of Samhain/Deep Autumn – in the darkest […]

The Seasonal Moment of Equinox @ EarthGaia comes around again at 1:54 UT on the 23rd September – the second for this Gregorian calendar year of 2018, and it is Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.  At my place East Coast Australia that Moment of Earth-Sun relationship will be at 11:54 on […]

June Solstice 2018 C.E.

Earth enters the Season of Solstice in our orbit around Mother Sun: She/we are tilted in both hemispheres to the furthest point; either away from, or toward, Sun – our source of life and energy. For the Southern Hemisphere it is the Winter Solstice – the time of longest hours of dark. For the Northern Hemisphere […]

The Solstices as a Pouring Forth – into Light or Dark

Winter Solstice ceremony is about celebrating the fullness of the dark, which involves at the same time the birthing of light. This fullness of dark may be understood as the fullness of emptiness, which many religious mystical traditions and poets have understood as a quality of emptiness: that is, that emptiness is full and sentient. […]

Samhain/Beltaine Moment @ EarthGaia May 2018

In our everyday sacred journey around Mother Sun – the “Turas”[i] of our Planet Earth – our orbit is moving us towards the Seasonal Moment of Samhain/Beltaine: the cross-quarter between Equinox and Solstice – further into Autumn towards Winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and further into Spring towards Summer in the Northern Hemisphere. The Moment […]
