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.

It is the Season of Solstice on planet Earth: as Earth’s tilt leans us to the furthest point either away from, or toward, Sun – our source of life and energy. Surely it is a sacred Moment, an Earth holy day. For the Southern Hemisphere it is the Summer Solstice – the time of longest hours […]

Beltaine/Samhain @ GaiaEarth November 2017

The actual Moment of this cross-quarter, the midpoint between Equinox (Spring/Autumn) and Solstice (Summer/Winter) is 5:25 UT (Universal Time) on the 7th November … that’s November 7th 15:25 EST Australia – my place: other global times are available at archaeoastronomy.com.                 In the Southern Hemisphere it is the Season of […]

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 […]

Equinox @ EarthGaia September 2017 C.E.

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 […]

Celebrating Seasons of the Goddess

“Celebrating Seasons of the Goddess restores the original vision of celebrating cultural and natural landmarks from the perspective of Goddess feminist activism. By taking such categories as time, seasons, nature and the female divine as a point of departure, this book brings modern minds out of patriarchal holiday conventions and invites the reader to join […]

Imbolc/Lammas @ EarthGaia, August 2017

In the Southern Hemisphere, we are entering the Season of the growing light celebrated as “Imbolc”/Early Spring: it is the first Seasonal Moment after Winter Solstice, the “cross-quarter” or meridian point between Solstice and Spring Equinox. In the North of the Planet it is the Season of the growing dark, celebrated as Lammas/Lughnasad: the first […]

We Are Cosmic Dynamics

At the Solstices, in traditional PaGaian ceremony, we recognize and recall the sacred space (that is, “call the directions”), with recognition that we are Cosmic Dynamics of the elements, as poetically inspired by cosmologist Brian Thomas Swimme’s perception of water, fire, earth and air.[1] This recalling, and “creating of sacred space” is ceremoniously invited and […]
