The Girl Returns, with a Cosmology

The title of this essay is in response to a long story written by the author some decades ago entitled The Way the Cosmos was for a Girl.  I am inspired in this writing by Jean Houston’s description of three layers/realms of the self. Her version is: (i) historic, factual, biological – “This is Me“: […]

Equinox – Autumn/Spring @ EarthGaia March 2021 C.E.

The Seasonal Moment of Equinox @ EarthGaia occurs at 9:37 UTC on March 20th. It is the first Equinox for this Gregorian calendar year of 2021, and it is Autumn in the Southern Hemisphere, Spring in the Northern Hemisphere.  At my place East Coast Australia the Autumnal Equinox Moment is 19:37 on March 20th (plus […]

Held in the Creativity of Her Seasonal Wheel

Sitting within my circle of stones, facing the North resting in what it represents for me: which is the Seasonal Moments as I have celebrated them for decades, and the entire story of the Universe in fact … all that has come into being to my right in the light part of the cycle, and […]

Lammas/Imbolc Moment @ EarthGaia Feb 2021 C.E.

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 Equinox on February 3rd at 14:40 UTC (“Universal Time” as it is named). All planetary times for this Moment may be found at archaeoastronomy.com. In the Southern Hemisphere it is […]

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 […]

Dis-covering That I am a Place

When I was pregnant for the first time, it was a shock to realize that “something” could grow in me. Though I had no words for it at the time, it was a beginning of revelation of the presence of the creative force of life in me. There was nothing second rate about this, and […]

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 […]

Infinite Generosity

One of my favourite stories is in this telling of a conversation between cosmologist/physicist Brian Swimme and geologian/cultural historian Thomas Berry: On another occasion, Brian was passionately telling Thomas, over a cup of coffee in a café, that he had figured out the source of the problem in industrial society and what needed to be […]

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 […]
