the magic space between old and new always present

… in real space and time, beyond tick-tock and the number given to an orbit, which is measured from some arbitrary event (2,021 years since what?) … let there be beauty and strength power and compassion honour and humility mirth and reverence … if it is not found within, it will not be found anywhere […]

Journey to Coolum: Belly Stone Revelations

Recently I travelled with my partner to a popular beach named Coolum within our region of East Coast Australia, and I was awestruck with its beauty. Being conscious of the original inhabitants of the land I live with, I googled for the names of the traditional people of the area and found that the Coolum […]

Beltaine/Samhain @ EarthGaia November 2020 C.E.

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 (as it is described in Western indigenous tradition), the cross-quarter transition between Equinox and Solstice: that is, into High Spring towards the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, and into Deep […]

Equinox @ EarthGaia September 2020 C.E.

The Seasonal Moment of Equinox @ EarthGaia, as our Planet may be named[1], will occur at 13:31 UTC September 22nd (that’s “Universal Time” as it is named – measured at Greenwich England). Equinox is a Moment of balance of dark and light for the Planet. From this moment, the Southern Hemisphere will tip into increasing dominance of […]

A Hera’s Journey: the Return

Recently I returned to my homelands, the region where I was born and spent my early days. For most of my life I thought I would never return here: I couldn’t get away quick enough as a young teen … the world called and there was pain in this place. I returned after forty-seven years […]

Imbolc/Lammas Season@ EarthGaia 2020 C.E.

At this time in Earth’s annual orbit, which is our everyday sacred journey (no need to go anywhere), Earth makes the post-Solstice transition. In the Southern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing light, post-Winter Solstice; and in the Northern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing dark, post-Summer Solstice. We as Earth […]

Celebrating and Invoking the Young One: the Future

As the first ceremonial marking of the growing light after Winter Solstice, Imbolc/Early Spring is a particular moment when the Young One within all may be celebrated; and dedication to this Young One may be made. As Earth’s tilt takes this region of the Planet back towards the Sun, we may celebrate and commit to […]

PaGaian Cosmology Preface

The term “PaGaian” requires some explanation: it expresses a reclaiming of the term “Pagan” as meaning a person who dwells in “country”, yet with “Gaian” spliced in, it expresses a renewed and contemporary understanding of that “country”. “Gaia” is a name for humanity’s Habitat, an ancient yet new name, which I understand to include whole […]

O Mother Sun

( … for the Solstices in particular) O Mother Sun       who is with me       wherever I am. … May I always remember       your presence surging through my nerve fibres breathing in my body. Present in the forms all around me. … May I remember to be gracious For Thine is the planet. […]
