December Solstice – Summer/Winter 2021C.E.

The Season of Solstice celebrates the sacred Moment when Earth’s tilt leans both hemispheres, South and North, to the furthest point in relationship with Mother Sun: it is the Seasonal Moment when the hours of light or dark peak, come to fullness, and there is a turning, a re-turning, to the other again. Solstice may […]

Attending to Summer Solstice Poetry

In the Southern Hemisphere, the Poetry of Summer Solstice is particularly ignored because at this Seasonal Moment, mainstream is celebrating Christmas, which is really a Winter Solstice thing appropriated by Christian faith long ago, and now appropriated by the capitalist consumer faith. Frequently even in Southern Hemisphere Pagan circles, where Summer Solstice is celebrated, the […]

Beltaine/Samhain @ EarthGaia November 2021

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 named in Western Indigenous tradition). It is the cross-quarter transition between Equinox and Solstice: that is, into High Spring towards the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, and […]

The Poiesis of Celebrating Earth’s Seasonal Moments

by Glenys Livingstone Ph.D. Amongst Celtic peoples, the capacity to speak poetically was a divine attribute, regarded as a transformative power of the Deity, who was named by those peoples as the Great Goddess Brigid: She was a poet, a Matron of Poetry (along with her capacities of smithcraft and healing).

A Summer Solstice Reading from PaGaian Cosmology

When asked to read something for Summer Solstice for her Open Heart Spiritual Center, former student of PaGaian Cosmology (2012-2013) Margaret Lee chose to read a segment from the book PaGaian Cosmology.

Solstice – Winter/Summer June 2021 C.E.

Earth enters the Season of Solstice at this time in Her orbit around Mother Sun. In the Southern Hemisphere it is the Winter Solstice: the lengthening dark part of the day will peak and there will be the turn/ return to the growing light out of that fullness of darkness. It is a Moment for celebrating the […]

Samhain/Beltaine Moment @ EarthGaia May 2021

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 […]
