New Moon in Libra: Right Relationship

New Moon Blessings! The Super New Moon on October 16th arrives at 19:31 UTC in the sign of Libra, a Cardinal sign signifying initiation, and is aligned with the element Air, such a cerebral sign. Air can bring change and inspiration, a gentle refreshing breeze or knock us down with heavy gusts! Air is life, death… Continue reading New Moon in Libra: Right Relationship

Weaving the Threads of Life

Blessings on the New Moon in Libra!This month's lunar theme is inspired by the wisdom of The Crone. As the year tilts towards darkness and winter’s rest (in the Northern Hemisphere) — the time of the Crone and An Cailleach — we are gaining a much deeper understanding of our own life and our connections… Continue reading Weaving the Threads of Life

12 Days of Solstice: Winter Wisdom

As I was writing the previous post about the Wisdom of the Crone and the Winter goddess An Cailleach, I came across this beautiful poem by Joyce Rudd on what is for me the true essence of Winter Solstice . . . the deep reflection of Winter, our connection to its stillness, the solace and rest… Continue reading 12 Days of Solstice: Winter Wisdom

12 Days of Solstice: Crone Wisdom

It is said that the final three days of the #12DaysOfSolstice, in Celtic traditions, are dedicated to The Crone aspect of a woman’s life and to The Crone goddesses such as An Cailleach. This is the Winter goddess with whom I connect most strongly. The Crone represents so many aspects of our life, including our… Continue reading 12 Days of Solstice: Crone Wisdom

Embracing the Waning Years of your Journey

And know this: even though one may be in the waning years,
the journey still has far to go.

And if you are in the waxing years, know that there is still much to learn and experience, and that spending time with the Mothers and Crones can illuminate your journey in ways you might not have imagined.

Embracing our Crone Wisdom

Last night I joined in a teleseminar led by Jean Shinoda Bolen, on the Goddess(es) in every woman after 50…. fascinating! During the event, she talked about the “C” word… yep, Crone! A word many of us are reclaiming, just as many of us are also reclaiming the word witch, both with wise and sacred traditions… Continue reading Embracing our Crone Wisdom

Opening your Rustic Gate of Wisdom

Yesterday I wrote about the New Moon in Cancer, and how in this month's journey we connect to our creativity, nurturing and mothering/birthing (self, others, etc). And then this morning, I came across a book I had read last year but which somehow found its way onto my desk. I have no idea how that happened ....… Continue reading Opening your Rustic Gate of Wisdom
