Beltaine/Samhain @ EarthGaia November 2022

As our planet Earth, and we Her inhabitants, orbit Mother Sun in our everyday sacred journey[1], we move into the Seasonal Moment of Beltaine/Samhain, the cross-quarter transition between Equinox and Solstice: that is, into High Spring towards the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, and into Deep Autumn towards the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. […]

Beltaine: a Celebration of the Magic of Light

In my PaGaian cosmology I have been so concerned to be re-valuing the Dark (in a cultural context that denied its essential creativity), that I have perhaps not noted sufficiently the magic of Light. Light has indeed been paid a lot of lip service in new age and traditional religious/spiritual language; but I wonder how […]

A Good Review of PaGaian Cosmology

A review by Aine Orga, 2014: PaGaian Cosmology is top of the list of “Five Books that Inspired Me”

Spring Equinox Meditation

There are two parts to this: it begins with the “Preparation” (3:15 mins), then the “Meditation” (15:20). Allow about 30 minutes (or more if you like) of undisturbed time for the whole experience. The meditation is based on the Persephone story of Her descent and return, as told in Charlene Spretnak’s Lost Goddesses of Early […]

PaGaian Cosmology Course: Goddess, Cosmogenesis and the Wheel of the Year

For those living in the Northern Hemisphere, my course in PaGaian Cosmology is starting with the advent of Autumn there, anytime now with the Introduction (which is substantial), and then with Samhain material in late September-early October. This course is rich in material, and suitable for the novice as well as the experienced who may wish […]

September Equinox @ EarthGaia 2022 C.E.

The Seasonal Moment of Equinox @ EarthGaia comes around again at 1:04 UTC on the 23rd September, and it is Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere: they are intimately, seamlessly connected.  At my place East Coast Australia that Moment of Earth-Sun relationship will be at 11:04 on the 23rd September … and all […]

Imbolc/Lammas Season @ EarthGaia 2022C.E.

As Earth/we make our/Her everyday sacred journey around Sun, in the Southern Hemisphere the young light ‘born’ at Winter Solstice is waxing and in the Northern Hemisphere the young dark ‘born’ at Summer Solstice is waxing. We as Earth cross the midpoint (the “cross-quarter”) between Solstice and Equinox on August 7th at 12:36 UTC. All […]

participating in the giant heart I call Mother

I find this excerpt from Robin Morgan’s poem The Network of the Imaginary Mother on my mind recently: it is associated at this time with the current Season of Winter Solstice (in my region of Earth in the Southern Hemisphere). I remember when this excerpt (and whole poem) first impressed me: when I was birthing […]

Solstice @ EarthGaia June 2022 C.E.

Earth enters the Season of Solstice at this time in Her orbit around our Mother Sun. It is one of two Solstices for the year, the other being in December. For the Southern Hemisphere June Solstice is the magic of the fullness of the dark, the longest night of the year, and the turn/ return to the […]
