  • Sunday 13th October, Full Ivy Moon

    Sunday 13th October is the Full Ivy Moon @ 22.10.

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

    To the left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, and associated each with a tree; this is the Ivy Moon(thoughtco.com). Samhain (Halloween, 31st October) is approaching and the year is coming to a close. The Ivy Moon marks the end of the harvest season, when most of the plants have withered but the evergreen Ivy carries on (even when its host has died), reminding us of the ongoing circle of life - life, death and rebirth. The Celts called the month Gort (pronounced go-ert) and it is seen as a time to banish fear and negativity from your life. Protect yourself from people, products and activities that are toxic to you. Ivy can be used in magical ceremonies for protection, healing, co-operation and for binding lovers together.

    Other names for a Full Moon in October are: Harvest Moon, Hunter's Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Egg Moon, Fish Moon, Seed Moon, Pink Moon, Waking Moon, (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Full Moon could also be called the Harvest Moon, or Hunter’s Moon, Frosty Moon, Beaver Moon (after the autumnal equinox)or Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Planting Moon, or Milk Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon, or Strawberry Moon (after the spring equinox). Source = earthsky.org. 

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. As avoiding toxins is recommended for the Ivy Moon, detoxing might also be advisable. I recommend anoil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Angela McGerr Publications - Angelology & Angel Card Book Sale

     
    Books cards new websiteHarmony Healing is a Mystery School training academy run by Joanna Bristow-Watkins.  The courses are designed to help lightworkers and seekers of spiritual truths open up additional perceptions and expand their consciousness. Joanna's emphasis is on Ancient Egyptian wisdoms, especially alchemy, as well as re-connecting with nature. The training methods are intense and best suited to those who are looking for a fast-tracked programme to deepen their esoteric understanding and awareness.  

    Joanna's older sister Angela McGerr is also a Mystery School teacher specialising in Essene Angelology and Blue Star mysteries. However, Angela has managed to create some amazing self study material on the form of Angelology publications: ten published books and an angelic Meditation CD. Having sold close to a million publications in cumulative sales, Angela is probably the most well known Angel author in the UK after Diana Cooper.

    However, all but her final un-illustrated book Angel Healing & Alchemyhave been long out of print and many are rare and collectable.

    Joanna has held stock and handled the retail sales for Angela since her books were first published in 2001. We have carefully stored these books for almost 20 years and many are in pristine condition, apart from some with delicate covers which are looking a bit scuffed in places but in amazing condition inside, as if they were newly printed.  Most of them are signed by Angela although lockdown means that when signed editions have been exhausted there will be a delay until more can be signed.

    We only have a few of each title signed and can’t get more at the moment due to social distancing
    We also have unsigned pre-loved versions of all of the Angel Cards, Angel Almanac, Gold & Silver Guardians (with A-Z of 100 Angels) from £25 + P&P depending on condition.

    A Harmony of Angels is Angela's first book, published in 2001. It's for those new to the Angelology philosophy as interpreted for the 21st Century by Angela. In her own words, this is why she wrote this book. What are you seeking in life? We are all seeking something. My book "A Harmony of Angels", is dedicated to The Seeker of the Way of Love and Light. This is the path of Hope, Courage, Truth, Wisdom, Beauty, Harmony and Healing. Are you such a seeker - a person who is tired of the materialism and destruction in the world? Someone who would like spiritual direction but, uncomfortable with the structure of established churches, not quite sure how to find it. The good news is that by learning how to commune with Angels (God's messengers!) you will never be alone or lack spiritual guidance. Providing you are asking from your heart, you can call upon Angels any time and anywhere and receive their unconditional love! Most of our detailed information on Angels does not come, as you might expect, from the Christian Bible, which names only three specific Angels: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael. Although important, most of our knowledge comes from other ancient texts; Angels transcend any one religion and are found in Persian, Christian, Jewish and Moslem scriptures. The word Angel comes from the Greek "Angelos", meaning messenger.

    The earliest references are about 6,000 years old, with Angelic beings depicted on ancient Egyptian and Babylonian artefacts. Although we can always call on our personal guardian Angel, there are hundreds of named Angels for given situations that we can call for specific help! The names themselves are magical and contain energy; even using the names brings you closer to the Angelic realms. In the past, people trusted in calling on Angelic help. The faith was lost but is now being rediscovered. Around two thousand years ago a religious sect named the Essenes, living in Qumran on the shores of the Dead Sea, were skilled at healing and practised Angelology; the knowledge was handed down from the time when Joseph led the children of Israel out of Egypt. Angelology is the belief that one must harmonise oneself physically and spiritually to achieve wellbeing. One way of achieving this is to commune with special Angels daily, in order to deal with differing aspects of life.

    The Essenes wrote about this in the Dead Sea Scrolls and their philosophy is just as valid today as it was in the time of Jesus. Indeed, some sources state that Jesus Christ himself was an Essene.

    Gold & Silver Guardian Angel Cards featuring A-Z book of 100 angel channellings. There are times when everyone has problems making decisions or resolving issues. Every one of us has a 'left', or logical, active part of the brain, and a 'right' or intuitive, passive side. Only when these are working effectively together can we come to balanced decisions and lead a happy existence. In her Gold and Silver Guardian Angels, Angela McGerr provides two products for the price of one! Guardian Angel Cards offer a means to seek advice and guidance from gold (active) and silver (passive) angels (to see both sides of a problem) with a key card that adds balance. The Book of Angels describes how to use the cards and features detailed portraits of over 100 angels. The reader can use it in two ways: to find out more information about the angels they have drawn with the cards, or to learn more about all the angels featured. It is, in fact, an angelic 'bible' for those already intrigued by the subject of angels.

    Angela McGerr's 'An Angel For Every Day' features twelve chapters based on the months and the zodiac angels who rule them. Nadiel, angel of Capricorn (January) for instance, is concerned with confidence, determination and self-esteem, whereas Ambriel, angel of Gemini (June) deals with communication, flexibility and stamina. At the start of each chapter, the reader is invited to look at the positive and negative attributes of the principles which govern each zodiac sign. Advice is then given for ways to bring them into balance. Each chapter includes a mix of invocations, angel messages, simple exercises, meditations and rituals, as well as suggested oils, herbs, candles and colours that can be used for focus. Throughout the book, the reader is encouraged to rethink their views about what is possible and impossible, as the angels help you to deal more easily with the stresses and strains that we all encounter in today's world.

    Angela's semi-autobiographical work: The Angel Quest of the Heart (a Labyrinthine Quest with Melchisadec, Hermes Trismegistus and Pistis Sophia) was published in October 2007. This is a two-book set. The first book is a narrative, based on Angela's own self-healing journey through the 7-turn 7-colour Labyrinth, in which the angels guide her in gradually healing each chakra, and then opening her higher heart flower, which is the 8th chakra - at the heart of the labyrinth - which is also the heart of the true self. The second book contains meditations and mandalas, one for each colour of the Labyrinth, so that readers can undertake their own personal journey either once only, or many times, as each time will heal at a new level. In keeping with Angela's previous publications, the latest book features more beautiful artworks from Richard Rockwood.

    The Love & Light Angel Cards is the third and final set in the trilogy of Angela McGerr's angelic guidance cards that started with the Harmony Angel Cards and continued with the Heart & Soul Angel Cards. The first two sets have had a profound effect on many people's lives and have sold over 300,000 copies. The Harmony Angel Cards set out to show the reader how to bring angels into their everyday lives; the Heart & Soul Angel Cards provided angelic guidance to link the heart's desire with the soul's purpose, and the Love & Light Angel Cards encourages the reader to travel further along the spiritual path to healing, harmony and heart ascension. Love heals and Light empowers.

    This set of extraordinarily powerful angel cards shows how to further heal yourself with Love and extend your journey towards spiritual ascension through the power of Light. It may be used completely independently from the other cards; however it is also a companion set so it can be used for joint readings. It has been designed to build upon the angelic wisdom you may have gained from using the first two sets, allowing you to do a deep and detailed 12-card reading using 4 cards from each set - in this way you will learn your next steps from the angels themselves. As before, the beautifully designed package contains a pack of 48 cards divided into four suits. The accompanying book describes the overall meaning of the four suits, the inherent meanings of each and every card, as well as several different ways of laying them out, with sample interpretations. Love & Light Angel Cards would make a superb gift for a friend, but will prove so invaluable personally that they could be hard to give away!

  • Awaken Your Avatar, 21st & 30th March 2019

    Moon Scarletts shotThursday 21st March & Saturday 30th March are both 3-3-3s numerologically, for which I've chosen the theme Awaken Your Avatar; which is basically a suggestion that we consolidate our internal conflict (balance our masculine/feminine, home/work-life, even positive/negative personality traits) and focus on connecting with our inner knowing (Higher Self) which we all hold within.  This means opening the heart and working toward integrating the Higher Self (spiritual aspects) and Lower Self (basic functional needs) to create an enlightened being (Avatar). 

    2019 is a '3' year in numerology (2+0+1+9 = 12, then 1+2 =3), March is the third month and we have four dates this month where the digits add up to three (3rd, 12th, 21st and 30th)' giving us four separate examples of 3:3:3 numerology, which can be interpreted as meaning 'awaken your avatar' as well as 'creating heaven on earth'.  These dates will offer amplified energies for manifesting our hopes and dreams.  Full details on the numerology are detailed in the separate section below. 

    2010 was the last '3 year'. That was the year when I saw the film Avatar and was struck by some very deep resonances within the storyline (though I personally think the film would have been improved by at least 30-45 mins less battle combat scenes). The blue skin of the Na'vi is interesting (Ptah, the Egyptian Deity, is depicted with blue skin and it is said that the beings from Sirius have blue skin), but I particularly like the way the Na'vi understood the inter-relationship between species and the need to honour all life forms, plus their appreciation of the life force infrastructure network operating via trees!  This is something that my sister (Angela McGerr) and I work with (via the Sacred Eden Tree, original archetypal tree from the Garden of Eden), through which much global and planetary healing can be disseminated.  Most people would not understand this concept at all, so in a way, films like Avatar sew the seeds for this being not such a challenging idea!  Of course Avatar, though it has come to mean in techno speak representation of self as a chosen archetype (or even via a Caricature), as defined by is original Sanskrit meaning, was the representation/incarnation of a Deity via a human or animal body, so in the film both definitions are combined with the idea of an idealised/perfected template of self.

    By Awakening our Avatar, we can become masters of our destiny.  Just imagine what we can do by tuning in 'en masse' at 3.33 (am or pm would work, though I fancy pm will be more popular!) on any of these 3:3:3 portals. I will be undertaking a meditation between 3 - 3.33, hopefully on all of these dates, but certainly on the 3rd and 30th, please tune-in if you are available.  Close your eyes at a convenient time, which could be 3pm in your local time or the equivalent of 3pm GMT (when we will be meditating), or, if this is not possible, then invoke Eth, the angelic Guardian of time, to bend time so that you can join us etherically.  Send your positive intentions for awakening your Avatar and also for seeing the planet healed, to create for ourselves the next golden age.  See this Lost Generation You Tube video link for a thought-provoking (1 minute 50 seconds) presentation on the need for global responsibility.  This was also, synchronistically, first uploaded in 2010.

    Thursday 21st March @ 01.43 (Wednesday night/Thursday morning) is Equinox Alder Full Moon. Its also the third and final of three consecutive Supermoons; see the separate Blog entry above for more.

Time for the orchids, delphiniums, dahlias, hydrangeas, irises and sunflowers to bloom, and the lingering perfumed scent of roses, honeysuckle, gardenias and jasmine on the night air. Traditionally, here in the UK, July would feature the Wimbledon Championship tennis finals and Henley Regatta.  

    The month of July was renamed to honour Julius Caesar, who was born in this month. Under Roman rule it was previous called Quintilis, meaning the 5th month in Latin. This was before January became the opening month of the calendar year, when the Gregorian calendar was established by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called Æftera Līþa (after midsummer).

    During July, as well as the intriguing Mary Magdalene Day (abandoned in 1552), we have Canada Day (1st) plus a couple of international independence celebrations – USA (4th) and France (14th). We can look forward to a sprinkling of Zoroastrian, Buddhist and Hindu Festivals as well as a Roman annual commemoration. However, the month is inundated with Egyptian Deity commemorations, initially featuring the Birthday of Ra (13th), then the month ends with the fiveEpagomenal Days - also known as the 'Days out of Time' - which celebrated the Birthdays of five major Egyptian Deities, culminating with the end of the Egyptian calendar year (1st August being their New Year). Egypt was formerly known asKhem in times of antiquity. Througout these auspicious dates in the Ancient Egyptian calendar, Katie and I will be at the Sun & Moon Festival (Merrist Wood, Guildford), where we will be offering a selection of workshops and three Forest Bathing Taster Sessions. We have full Surrey Forest Bathing events on Thursday 7th July at Cannon Hill (London SW20)Sunday 10th at Harry Edwards Healing Sanctuary(near Shere, Surrey) and the Kosmon Sanctuary (Tadworth, near Epsom, Surrey) on Tuesday 12th July. The Full Moon Guided Healing Meditation is taking place on Wednesday 13th, the night of the Thunder Moon (reaches its peak at 19:38).

    1 July Tir JishanFriday 1st July, in Fasli tradition, is the Zoroastrian Rain Festival of Tir Jashan, dedicated to the star deities of Tir and Teshar. 

    Give bracelets made of the seven colours of the rainbow.  At the end of the festival go to a high place and throw them into the wind (biodegradeable I hope). 

    As the Festival is actually on the 13th of Tir, some Zorastrian traditions convert this to 4th July.

    1st July Canada dayFriday 1st July is also Canada Day; the national day of Canada.

    This is a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of Canadian confederation, which took place with the passing of the Constitution Act on 1st July 1867, where the new name Canada recognised the three separate colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick being united into a single Dominion within the British Empire. 

    4 July American Independence DayMonday 4th July is American Independence Day.

    This marks the anniversary of unanimous adoption of the Declaration of Independence, by the Second Continental Congress in 1776

    The Declaration announced that the 13 colonies claimed their separation from England, which eventually led to the formation of the United States.

    24 July Guru PurnimaWednesday 13th July, being the day of the Full Moon in July, it is also Guru Purnima (the Full Moon of the Gurus) in Hindu tradition. The day of full moon, Purnima, in the month of Ashadh of the Hindu calendar is traditionally celebrated as Guru Purnima by Hindus.

    On this day, devotees offer puja (worship) to their Guru.

    The Sanskrit root "Gu" means darkness or ignorance. "Ru" denotes the remover of that darkness. Therefore one who removes the darkness of ignorance is a Guru.

    It is a day for celebration and worship, a day on which the disciples remember and express their gratitude to the lineage of Gurus. Hindus believe that a Guru is necessary to make one understand the formless Divinity.  

    24 July Asalkha Puja dayWednesday 13th July is Asalhka Puja Day.

    This is a Buddhist commemoration of the Buddha's first public speech to five ascetics. He declared the middle way, the noble eight-fold path and the four noble truths upon which Buddhism is based. 

    13 July Birthday of Ra full bodyWednesday 13th July, according to some sources, was the Ancient Egyptian Festival to celebrate the Birthday of Ra.

    Since Ra was the God of creation this could be interpreted as the day man was created! 

    Ra was also associated with the Sun and healing so perhaps it is no coincidence that the Roman’s celebrated Apollo on the same (equivalent) date. 

    13 July Games of ApolloWednesday 13th July, in Roman Times, was the culmination of the Games of Apollo.

    As early as 212 BCE 13th July was the celebration of Apollo as the God of Healing (especially during wars) but this later extended into an 8 day festival ending on 13th July. 

    Apollo was associated with the Sun and his twin Diana (Goddess of Hunting) was associated with the moon. 

    Apollo became significant among the Romans when Augustus Caesar, as a young man, chose Apollo as his own god, and attributed his victory over Antony and Cleopatra to Apollo’s superiority over the Egyptian Deities! 

    Augustus is said to have described Apollo as: “Governor of Roman destiny; master of the sun; archer; augur; averter of pestilence; and giver of sound morals to the young.”

    14 July Bastille DayThursday 14th July is Bastille Daya national holiday in France.

    This commemorates a mob of Frenchmen, rebelling against the rule of their king, who stormed a prison to obtain weapons and free prisoners.

    It sparked the French Revolution in 1789.

    22nd July Mary Magdalene DayFriday 22nd July was celebrated in the First Book of Common Prayer, 1549, as Saint Mary Magdalene’s Day in the Christian calendar.  When the Second Book of Common Prayer was published 3 years later in 1552, this feast day, amongst others was omitted.

    Early celebrations of Mary Magdalene's Feast Day included marriage symbolism such as creating your own healing oil blends "for the marital bed”, probably including oils such as rose, sandalwood, and ylang ylang. 

    Apparently the original feast day venerated her as a representative of the perfect wife (church liturgy recommended readings such as Proverbs 31:10-31), so it is a day to celebrate the Sacred Feminine, maybe plant something, sew something, cook something and, of course, love something. 

    Sun Moon Festival promoTuesday 26th July to 2nd August is the Sun & Moon Festival at Merrist Wood, Guildford. It's not organised by us, but Katie and Joanna will be there for the entire week.  

    A wonderful week of wellness and wellbeing. Hundreds of workshops covering everything from pilates to personal development. Singing, dancing, drumming - and so much more. And loads for the kids too! Join the tribe! And let the light of love shine on you!

    Katie is offering three taster Forest Bathing events over the duration of the festival. Times/dates to be organised by the festival co-ordinators.

    Joanna is running three workshops on:

    1/. Connecting with the Essene Elemental and Nature Angels (time/date tba
    2/. A New Moon Meditation on Thursday 28th July
    3/. Harness the Power of the Moon for Health, Wealth & Wellbeing.

    26 July eve of Epagomenal DaysTuesday 26th July (or 13th July) is the Egyptian eve of the Epagomenal Days of celebration for the birthdays of their ancient major Deities. 

    The exact correlation of the Egyptian New year to the modern calendar is disputed, but I favour the linking with the heliacal rising of Sirius (dawn visibility of Sirius) as this star, known to the Egyptians as Sopdet (pronounced Soppday) was closely associated with Aset. 

    The celebrations began on the Eve of the Epagomenal Days - viewed as 26th July, although some sources equate it to 13th July). The following days marked the birthdays of the five children of the Egyptian Deity Nut. 

    27 July birthday of AusarBeing dates of powerful Egyptian Energies these may prove ideal days for an Egyptian Energy Reyad Sekh Em 1-2-1 healing session. 

    28 July birthday of HeruAccording to myth, Tehuti (Thoth) enabled Nut to give birth to her five children [Aset (Isis), Ausar (Osirus), Set, Heru (Horus the elder) and Nebt-het (Nephthys)] by using his cunning to win a game of draughts with the moon.

    By winning a seventy second part of the moon's light, he managed to create five extra days (the Epagomenal Days, also known as the Days out of Time), which allowed Nut to give birth to her five children without breaking Ra's decree that her children could not be born on any existing calendar day.

    This myth more than any other is responsible for Tehuti (Thoth)'s role as a lunar deity.  

    29 July birthday of SetWednesday 27th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Ausar (Osirus). 

    He is also known as Wzr, Wesir, Asar, Ausir, Usir, Usire,Osirus,Osirus. The latter two versions being used later after the Greek occupation, but the variation is mainly due to the lack of vowels in heiroglyphic language meaning that there are many phonetic representations. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. 

    30 July birthday of Aset

    Thursday 28th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Heru (Horus).

    This is Heru-ur [also known as Horus the Elder (Gr)], sibling of Ausar and Aset, not their son. Not all sources list him as a sibling, Egyptian mythology widely varies depending on the era and geographical location of the source within Egypt. See the entry under 26th July for the full story. 

    10 July New MoonThursday 28th July@ 18:55 is Lunasa New Moon.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2022. 

    Friday 29th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Set (Seth). Set is also known as Seth (Gr), Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh or Suty which probably ultimately led to the term SatanSee the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    31 July birthday of Nebt hetSaturday 30th July, in the Egyptian Calendar, is the Birthday of Aset [Aset, Iset, Isis (Gr)]

    Auset is responsible for resurrecting her murdered husband and, being mad with grief, uses her magical powers to temporarily restore breath and life into Ausar in order to concieve their son Heru.See the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    Sunday 31st July is the Egyptian Birthday of Nebt-het  [Nebet-Het, Nebthet, Nepthys (Gr)].

    Nebh-het is the sister-wife of Set and is typically paired with her sister Auset when undertaking funerary rites because of their protective priestess roles with mummified bodies. See the entry under 26th July for the full story.

    Moonwise Calendar 2022Celestial Forecast is compiled by Joanna Bristow-Watkins of Harmony Healing, the original is published at Joanna's Monthly Celestial Forecasts. It is created using many sources but notably the Moonwise Calendar and Lia Leendertz's annual Almanac. Whilst considerable effort is made to ensure accuracy, this is not an exact science and sources are sometimes contradictory!

    These monthly Celestial Forecasts (CF) are generally uploaded to the Harmony Healing website a fortnight ahead and can be accessed via the drop-down box on the right. They are sent out to the main mailing list and CF subscribers a few days before the month starts. 

    Extracts from the Celestial Forecast are reproduced in Glyden Magick, an online magazine offered via Gylden Fellowship which is a fabulous resource for Neo-Pagans (particularly in the South of England when physical meet-ups can resume).

    Through Harmony Healing, Joanna utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em® (RSE) Level 1 Egyptian Alchemy Healing. Featuring four online modules of Khemitology (Ancient Egyptology according to the indigenous oral traditions), Violet Flame of Amenti, Mindful Chakra Balancing & Essene AngelologyMissed sessions are fully recorded so that late registrations or are possible. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 costs £266 and run about three times a year. the individual modules are stand-alone and cost either £88 or £66, hence the RSE 1 package offers a cost saving. Since the zoom sessions are recorded, it is still possible to study any of the interactive material when dates are not listed on the website    

    These are interspersed by her one month Lunar Cycle Alignment Programmes. She is also an intuitive healer offering 1-2-1 distant healings and readings, plus MP3 recordings. She is a fully qualified Fotrest Bathing guide, offering Forest Bathing sessions in the Surrey Hills of England. Joanna acts as the retailer for her sister, Angela Mcgerr's, best selling angelogy books and angel card sets. The are mostly now out-of-print, but Joanna still has some unused copies as well as pre-used versions of many of the card sets, see the Harnony Shop for the full details.

    June is British summertime. The roses bloom, imprinting their perfumed scent into the extended evenings leading to the Solstice on the 21st. Garden flowers and hedgerows are splendidly colourful and summer berries are abundant.  Seasons are topsy turvey with the elderflower, usually a May blossom, in full bloom as June begins. After two crazy years, we will relish the picnic season with strawberries & ice-cream plus elderflower cordial; despite optimism versus realism whilst planning for both rain and/or sunburn risk.

    The month could be named after Juno, the Roman Goddess linked with marriage. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called sera monath (dry month), which is not necessarily our modern-day experience.

    Excitingly, this year, we have three lots of 666 numerology on the 6th, 15th & 24th June, see below for details. Also during June, as well as the Summer Solstice (21st) and our own traditional British Festivals including Midsummer's Eve (24th), we have a couple of international events – World Environment Day (3rd), World Ocean Day (8th) and Asteroid Day (30th). We can look forward to a sprinkling of Chinese (3rd), Egyptian (16th and 20th) and Roman (24th) celebrations plus the Bootid Meteor Shower (peaking 27th). We have Surrey Forest Bathing events on 25th with Full Moon on the 14th, there's no live Full Moon Meditation this month but a recorded one will be available to purchase.

    Bank Holiday nature TrailThursday 2nd/Friday 3rd June is the delayed Whitsun Bank Holiday to mark the Queen's Jubilee weekend early June. 

    Her Majesty The Queen will become the first British Monarch to celebrate a Platinum Jubilee (70 years of service). In 2022, most workers in the United kingdom will have two days off work (and it's school half term) and the banks will be closed.

    Normally the Whitsun break is known as the Late May bank holiday and falls on the last Monday of May but it used to be on the Monday after Pentecost.

    14th June Chinese Dragon Boat FestivalFriday 3rd June is scheduled as the Chinese Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duanwu Festival in Mandarin and Tuen Ng Festival in Cantonese. The Festival is to commemorate the Chinese patriot, Qu Yuan, who killed himself by jumping into the river Li in despair. He was desperate because his master refused to take his advice and he feared his country falling into the enemy's hands  It is on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar, which falls this year on Friday 3rd June.  However, celebrations often take place on convenient weekends in the Western calendar - such as the Ilford Dragon Boat Festivalwhich is scheduled to take place this year 18th June.

    5th June alternative World Environment DaySunday 5th June is World Environment Day, which has been celebrated annually since 1974. Over the years, the day has focused on such issues as acid rain, oceans, water, and green cities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    World Environment Day is also encouraging individuals into doing something personally to take care of the Earth. It doesn’t matter whether the effort is on a local level or whether it is a group effort nationally or even globally; everyone is free to choose.
    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
    World Environment Day has a new theme annually which focuses attention on a pressing environmental concern. The theme for 2022 is #onlyoneearth 🌍⠀

    TogetherCoalition ThankYouDay 1x1Sunday 5th June, in 2022, is alsoThank You Day in the UK. The past couple of years have been testing for all of us. But with The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this summer there’s never been a better excuse for great big party, to say thank you to everyone who has helped us through. 

    That’s why Sunday 5th June is this year’s Thank You Day.We’re getting together as friends, families, neighbours and communities, to raise a glass to The Queen for 70 years outstanding service, and say a great big thank you to each other as well.

    Let’s do it in style. Make sure everyone is included, get the school band to play, invite the next street over. Let’s make this the biggest thank you party ever!⠀⠀

    666 numerologyMonday 6th June is a primary 666 in numerology. 2022 is a '6' year in numerology (2+0+2+2 = 6), June is the 6th month and today is the 6th day of the month, so this is a primary 666 as each component of the month adds up to 6. Wednesday 15th and Friday 24th June (the latter aso being Midsummers Day) will carry secondary 666 energy as the components of these dates also add up to 6. 

    Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers and the science attributing significance and meaning to seemingly random numbers happening globally or noticed in our environment. Double or triple digit numbers are added together and reduced into a single digit (as above with the digits of the year). 

    In numerology, the number 6 can be said to represent the sacred vibration of light focusing on love, marriage, home, family, nurturing, compassion, healing, service and success. But by far the most vital representation of the number 6 is healing and integration, particularly regarding personal cellular vibration. The 6-pointed star represents the Macrocosm - Divinity within all. Quite the opposite of the association many people have of 666 with the devil and negativity.

    Double numbers (i.e. 11, 22, 33 etc.) and triple numbers (111, 222, 333 etc.) are known as repdigits and intensifies the meaning. With 6 being said to represent the Macrocosm (the collective) as well as being the number of creativity, of family, relationships and success. The figure 666 offers triple the opportunity of eliminating our fears and creating successful relationships.

    There will be a full Harmony Healing Blog entry posted on 6th June featuring finer details on the meaning of numerological triple numbers and more on the interpretation of 666 specifically.

    8th June World Ocean dayWednesday 8th June is World Ocean Day. This annual event, recognised since 2016, is designed to unite and rally the world to protect and restore our blue planet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    14th June Solstice Strawberry MoonTuesday 14th June is Full Moon @ 12:52 UK time. It's the Summer Solstice Strawberry Moon.

    It's also known as the Lotus Moon, Oak Moon, Cold Moon or Long Night’s Moon.

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. For instructions on how to conduct an Angela McGerr's Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel (from Angela McGerr's book A Harmony of Angel, we have a few unused signed editions available from the Harmony Shop),see the Harmony Healing Full Moon listing.  

    15th June 666 numerologyWednesday 15th June is a secondary 666 in numerology. 

    2022 is a '6' year in numerology (2+0+2+2 = 6), June is the 6th month and today is the 15th day of the month (1+5=6), so this is a secondary 666 as each component of the month adds up to 6. See entry under 6th June for more information.

    16th June Leyleten NuktahThursday 16th June is the Egyptian night, known as Leyleten-Nuktah, the Night of the Tear Drop.

    A miraculous tear-drop as Aset (Isis) began the mourning of her brother/husband Asar (Osirus), was believed to fall into the Nile causing it to rise and bring new life to the land. 

    Sources vary as to whether this is 14th/16th/17th or 18th June; the date is actually the 11th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Ba-oo-neh, so the confusion arises when trying to covert this to our Gregorian calendar.

    To purchase instructions for a sacred bath ritual for finding inner strength; removing the etheric mask to see the ‘truth’ beneath(£9.99 or £4.44 to email subscribers) see Harmony Shop or email .Subscriber discount code is HHSUB, also shown on the booking page.

    20th June Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the LampsMonday 20th June is the Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the Lamps which was held at Sais (source Bibliotheca Alexandrina, p31, also available via Academia.edu,date from Moonwise Calendar). This is the third great festival in Sais to Aset (Isis).

    In an under-chapel beneath the temple, lamps were carried in procession around the coffin of Asar (Osiris). It was by the power of light, symbolising the life-giving power of the Moon, that Aset rekindled life in her dead husband.

    The exact date is actually the 13th day of the Ancient Egyptian month of Epeiph, so confusion arises when trying to covert this to our Gregorian calendar and some sources give variations especially 21st June.

    21st June Summer SolsticeTuesday 21st June at 10:13 is the Pagan Celebration of the Solstice, the moment when the sun enters Cancer. In the Northern Hemisphere, this is viewed as the triumph of light, the ecstatic culmination of the sun, yet the start of growing darkness.

    Old traditions included: Making a bonfire on a hilltop, sing, drink, laugh and time of merry-making.

    Processions with torches and lanterns, rolling wheel down hill to mark the start of the sun’s descent, blessing cakes and wine, waiting for the dawn and greeting the sun when it rises, sleeping by a spring, rolling naked in the dew of the summer sunrise! More at timeanddate.com

    24th June 666 numerologyFriday 24th June is a secondary 666 in numerology. 

    2022 is a '6' year in numerology (2+0+2+2 = 6), June is the 6th month and today is the 15th day of the month (2+4=6), so this is a secondary 666 as each component of the month adds up to 6.

    See entry under 6th June for more information and see below for mor about this date also being Midsummers Day.

    24th June Mid Summers DayFriday 24th June is also Midsummers Eve and was considered magical in Cornwall and Ireland, when there was feasting, fires, songs, and dances. Bonfires were kindled on high hills to commemorate the high point of the year. Traditionally, the veil is thin between the dimensions housing the living and the dead at this time. 

    This is also the Roman Festival of Fors Fortuna. Forsis(note the name is very similar to Isis) an ancient Roman Goddess of prosperity, good luck, and divine blessings. Her name means "She Who Brings", from the Latin verb fero, synonymous with abundance and success.  This seems to have merged with Fortuna, probably originally a Goddess of fertility, into the Goddess called Fors Fortuna, who was acknowledged as sometimes being fickle or wanton and representing Fortune as Goddess of luck or chance. 

    She was especially worshipped by slaves and commoners, as the Goddess who could bring about rags-to-riches transformations; with at least two dedicated temples in Rome being founded by former slaves in gratitude for their changed luck.

    26th June Bootids Meteor ShowerMonday 27th June (Sunday night / Monday morning) is predicted as the peak of the Bootids Meteor Shower; if they are visible at all this year. Although they are not active every year, they can occur any time between 22nd June and 2nd July.

    In 2022, the best displays might be after dusk on 27th June as the shower is expected to reach peak activity at around 17:00 UK time on 27th. With New Moon soon after on the 29th, it could be a great year for viewing with minimal light pollution, weather permittting.

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    New Moon is a good time to work on your Vision Board for the rest of 2022.

    30th June Asteroid DayThursday 30th June is Asteroid Day. Asteroid Day was co-founded in 2014, by Dr. Brian May, astrophysicist and lead guitarist of QUEEN, together with Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 Astronaut, Danica Remy, President of B612 Foundation and filmmaker Grig Richters.

    Asteroid Day events take place annually on 30th June to mark the anniversary of the Tunguska impact in 1908. 

    Its purpose is to expand the understanding of asteroids and to ensure that any asteroids which might ever have a direct impact on our planet are carefully monitored.

    May CF is readyMay is a month when our Pagan heritage breaks through into parochial folklore. May Day, also known as Beltane, is a Pagan Festival still celebrated in parishes across the country featuring elaborate traditions involving May Poles, floral-dressed girls bedecked with flower garlands, Morris Dancers, Green Man imagery, hobby horses etc. We usher in the promise of sunshine and summer as we welcome green shoots and abundant blossom everywhere, not least the Mayflower (Hawthorn) associated with the old adage, ne'er cast a clout till May be out (which I always assumed meant the month itself)...

    The month could be named after Maia, a Greek Goddess linked with the land, fertility and growth. To the Anglo-Saxons, it was called Thrimilci, the month when cows could be milked three times a day due to constant grazing on abundant new grass.

    During May, as well as our own traditional British Festivals plus Mental Health Awareness Week (9th-16th) and we can look forward to Roman and Egyptian celebrations as well as a lunar eclipse. On the 16th we have a Flower Blood Full Moon with total lunar eclipse which is not visible in the UK or most of Europe - but we will still be affected energetically. Eclipses always bring the unseen into focus. Our Full Moon Online Guided Meditation is 7.30-9.30pm UK time on Monday 16th May.

    We have Surrey Forest Bathing events with Bluebells at Harry Edwards on Sunday 15th (full day event themed on Nature Angels) & Sunday 22nd, as well as London Forest Bathing in SW20 on Monday 9th (during Mental Health Awareness week). Our inaugural 6-week Forest Bathing Series for the local branch of the mental health charity Mind starts 11th May. And my Violet Flame of Amenti virtual study course is starting again on the 12th May.

    May Day BeltaneSunday 1st Mayis May Day and Beltane - a Celtic word meaning 'fires of Bel' (Bel was a Celtic deity). It is a fire festival that celebrates the coming of summer and the fertility of the coming year. Celtic festivals often tied in with the needs of the community. In springtime, at the beginning of the farming calendar, everybody would be hoping for a fruitful year for their fields and hence also their families. Beltane rituals would often include courting: for example, young men and women collecting blossoms in the woods and lighting fires in the evening. These rituals would often lead to matches and marriages, either immediately or in the coming summer or autumn.

    Bona Dea 1st MaySunday 1st Maywas also the annual Roman Festival of Bona Dea. In Roman mythology, Bona Dea (literally "the good goddess") was the goddess of fertility, healing, virginity, and women. She was the daughter of the god Faunus and was associated with supplying medicinal healing herbs in her temple garden. Bona Dea was traditionally invoked for freedom from slavery; many of her worshippers were freed slaves and plebeians, and several were women seeking aid in sickness or for fertility. This Festival was celebrated by women only!

    Image by Marti Dean who also designed Jack's face for the 2022 Hastings FestivalMonday 2nd May, is early May Bank Holiday in the UK (the first Monday after 1st May), with many towns and villages offering May Day celebrations.

    Jack in the Green Festival is held in Hastings, with four days of festivities around the May Day weekend. ​​​​​Since its revival in the 1980s the festival has become synonymous with the town of Hastings and is now one of its largest events. 

    Over the long weekend there is morris dancing around the town, a traditional ceilidh and a sunrise ceremony to welcome in the dawn of summer on Sunday 1 May. Bank holiday Monday is the highlight as the town turns green. A grand procession leads the giant foliage-covered Jack through the Old Town and up to the West Hill, where he is eventually 'slain' and the spirit of summer is released! Image by Marti Dean, who also designed Jack's face for this 2022 festival programmes.

    Hastings Jack in the Green is a hugely popular event so local roads and the A21 can get congested and car parking around the town is limited. 

    Veneration of the ThornWednesday 4th May, is the festival of the Veneration of the Thorn at which the Hawthorn is honoured.

    This is a festival of modern origin that may have been adapted from the night of Lunantisidhe on 16th May, honouring the fairy spirits of Hawthorns.

    Holy bushes and trees marking sacred places and wells are acknowledged and new scraps of cloth are tied to their branches. 

    Alec Bristow the Great EscapeWednesday 4th May, 3-4.15pm, Joanna's talk entitled 'The Great Escape; the Real Story' at the Guildford Institute, Ward Street, Guildford, Surrey GU1 4LH. Cost £5. Most places are reserved for members.

    Joanna will tell the personal story of her father who grew up in Guildford before becoming a WWII Mosquito pilot and a prisoner-of-war in Stalag Luft III where the famous ‘Great Escape’ took place in March 1944.

    Joanna first saw The Great Escape film as a young child and has assembled extensive research, her father’s anecdotes and his wartime diary to give a fascinating insight into what it was really like for an RAF officer in the camp. Including: How ambitious were the preparations and plans? What actually took place on 24 March 1944 and what were the after-effects of this bold affront to the Nazi regime?

    The one hour talk will cover: details of what actually happened on the night of the Great Escape (made famous by the 1963 Hollywood Blockbuster), as well as how he survived the war, his lucky escape, and how he came to run five travel agencies in North West Surrey.

    You can book online viaGuildford Institute (event ref T278) or by phone on 01483 562142.

    AquaridsThursday 5th May (specifically Wednesday night/Thursday morning)is peak of the ETA Aquariid Meteor Shower,see rmg.org or EarthSky Website.Predominantly, this is a pre-dawn shower, that is one where the meteors may occur in the dark hour before dawn.

    The best display will rain down on the morning of the 5th May (the New Moon 30th April is close enough to help reduce light pollution), but these ETA Aquariids can appear any time between 24th April and 20th May.

    1st May Surrey daySaturday 7th May is Surrey Day here in our locality. 

    The fourth annual Surrey Day takes place on Saturday 7th May, 2022, led by Visit Surrey and partners BBC Radio Surrey, Surrey Life Magazine, Surrey Lieutenancy and Local Food Surrey.

    Details on the Visit Surrey website.

    9th May LemuriaMonday 9th Mayis the Roman Festival of Lemuria.

    This involved a ritual by the Master (or Mistress) of the House with nine black beans(!) to honour the Lemures – spirits of those who died unnatural or violent deaths.

    I wondered if it was connected to the ancient land of Lemuria,believed to have been situated in the Pacific area near Hawaii, and a possible belief by the Romans that the land may have been destroyed violently (legend says that, like Atlantis, a disaster such as volcanic eruption or flood caused its destruction).

    Mental health awareness week 2022Monday 9th - Sunday 15th May is Mental Health Awareness Week here in the UK, and the theme this year is loneliness which affects millions of people across the UK.

    Sadly, the series of lockdowns since 2020, won't have helped mental health at all, with loneliness and isolation a known cause of depression already.

    On the plus side, this last two years have put health and wellbeing in the public eye more than ever.

    Jo at CHCMonday 9th May, 11am -1.30pm, we kick off Mental Health Awareness Week with Forest Bathing+at our London location in Cannon Hill Park, SW20, £35 (+ Paypal fee = £36.75).

    The colour violet has an established association with spirituality. Having the highest frequency in the visible spectrum, violet is at the point of transition to the next octave of light.

    Both in Atlantis, and subsequently during the Essene era (which spanned the lifetimes of Mother Mary, Jesus Christ and Mary Magdalene), this powerful tool was retained under the Guardianship of Angels Melchisadec and Ariel. 

    This course features instructions on the ancient alchemical properties of the Violet Flame and how to use it in your daily life. See Violet Flame of Amenti page for further details and to book. 

    Worth 1 unit towards the RSE Level 1, available at a special package rate of £266, which includes a personal angelic attunement, worth £33, created around your date of birth.

    Flower Blood MoonMonday 16th May is Flower Moon (and Total Lunar Eclipse) @ 05:15 UK time (Sunday night/Monday morning). Total lunar eclipses are sometimes called a Full Blood Moon Eclipsebecause of the orange-red glow the moon seems to adopt during the eclipse phase.

  • Equinox Alder Super Full Moon, Thursday 21st March 2019

    Moon Scarletts shotThursday 21st March @ 01.43 (Wednesday day night/Thursday morning) is Equinox Alder Full Moon.  It's also the third and final of three consecutive Supermoons. 

    A Supermoon is when the moon appears larger in the sky because it is reaches the closest proximity to Earth (known as the perigee*) coinciding with the New Moon or Full Moon. Since the New Moon is only a sliver to the naked eye, the Full Moon Supermoons are much more of a visual treat, when the moon may appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than on any other Full Moon occasion. Although it may not seem all that noticeable to us and of course it will depend on good clear viewing conditions; however due to an optical illusion, it will always look bigger and more luminous when closer to the horizon.

    *The moon orbits around the Earth in an ellipse which takes just over 29 days, meaning that it reaches points in the year when it is at its closest (perigee, when it is about 363,000 km away) and furthest (apogee, when it is about 405,500 KM) from our planet. Those old enough might be reminded of Bed Knobs and Broomsticks when Angela Lansbury mentions the perigee and  apogee in one of her invocations!

    On 14th November 2016, the moon reached its closest to the Earth since 26th January 1948 and it won't come closer to us until 25th November 2034! More at Earthsky Website.

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

    To the left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition.  The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, this is the Alder Moon.  At this time of year the Alder is prominent and flourishing on the river banks, with its roots dipping in the water, offering itself up as a magical bridge between heaven and earth. Known as Fearn (pronounced Faerin) it is associated with Faerie Magic; an ideal time for spiritual decision-making relating to divination and prophesy, as well as for honing our intuitive skills. Alder twigs and flowers are well known charms in Faerie Lore, with Alder shoots being used to make whistles and flutes to commune with the air elementals. More about this at thoughtco.com. Being very close to the Equinox, the Alder Moon will carry the frequency of balance and harmony embodied by the Equinox when light and dark are in perfect balance.  Interestingly, this is also the remit of Cassiel, who is the Angelic Guardian of Saturday, and as this Full Moon falls on a Saturday we can expect this to boost the harmonising effect.

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    Today is also a 3:3:3 numerologically.  See the Awaken Your Avatar Blog entry beneath.

  • Equinox Easter Alder Blue Full Moon, Saturday 31st March 2018

    IMG 8443 archway with supermoon 1st jan 2018Saturday 31st March @ 13.37 is Equinox Easter Full Moon. It's also the Alder Moon.

    Being the 2nd Full Moon in the calendar month of March, by the newer definitions it is a Blue Moon. 

    By the same definition there was another Blue Moon two months ago when we had Full Moons on the 2nd (image showing Full Moon over Kew Gardens is on the right) and 31st January. A Synodic Month (the time between two Full Moons) is 29.53 days on average, so it's more usual to have one per month, but if the month is long and there is a full moon at the very beginning (as happened this January and March) then we get two. The next Blue Moon by this definition will be in 2020!  It's rare to get two Blue Moons in the same calendar year; it last happened in 1999 and will next happen in 2037!

    February did not have a Full Moon at all, making it a Black Moon month, although confusingly this can also refer to the 2nd New Moon in a calendar month or a month with no New Moon!  February is the only month when this can happen, especially in years when it only has 28 days.

    The old definition of a Blue Moon was when there were four Full Moons, rather than the usual three, in an Astronomical Seasons. Spring begins on the spring equinox; Summer begins on the summer solstice; Autumn (Fall) begins on the autumn equinox; and Winter begins on the winter solstice. Known as the four Albans, these are four of the important eight festivals of the Pagan/Celtic/Gaelic Calendar. This moon does not constitute a Blue Moon by that definition.

    Because Blue Moons (by either definition) are unusual - the last one before the 31st January this year was 31st July 2015 - the expression 'once in a blue moon' has come to mean something happening on rare occasions.  The moon can in fact appear blue in colour too, when the atmosphere is filled with smoke or dust particles of wider than 0.7 micron, which sometimes happens after a forest fire, volcanic eruption (such as Krakatoa, Indonesia in 1883) or dust storms.

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, this is the Alder Moon.  At this time of year the Alder is prominent and flourishing on the river banks, with its roots dipping in the water, offering itself up as a magical bridge between heaven and earth. Known as Fearn (pronounced Faerin) it is associated with Faerie Magic; an ideal time for spiritual decision-making relating to divination and prophesy, as well as for honing our intuitive skills. Alder twigs and flowers are well known charms in Faerie Lore, with Alder shoots being used to make whistles and flutes to commune with the air elementals. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website I happily stumbled upon. Being very close to the Equinox, the Alder Moon will carry the frequency of balance and harmony embodied by the Equinox when light and dark are in perfect balance.  Interestingly, this is also the remit of Cassiel, who is the Angelic Guardian of Saturday, and as this Full Moon falls on a Saturday we can expect this to boost the harmonising effect.

    As it's Easter this weekend too, this moon will carry the energy of the Pagan Deity Eostre (the ancient Pagan ceremony upon which I believe the Easter celebration was superimposed, see my post for Easter Sunday for more); representing fertility and associated with the Pagan Hare, another ancient symbol of fertility and with a 28 day gestation period very linked to the lunar cycle. In Ancient Egypt the hare is a hieroglyph meaning ‘existence’.

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body.  In view of this being a Super Blue Blood Imbolc Moon, I would say it's an even better time than usual for a detox.  I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Equinox Full Vine Moon, Tuesday 25th September 2018

    Tuesday 25th September @ 03.54 is Pagan Equinox Full Vine Moon (Monday night/Tuesday Morning). 

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

    To the left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop.

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, and associated each with a tree; this is the Vine Moon(thoughtco.com). All over the northern hemisphere, at this time of year, the fruits of vine are ripe for harvesting and ready for the first stages of wine production. The vine is a symbol of passionate emotions whether expressing either joy or wrath. The Celts called the month Muin (Neopagans call it Mabon) and typical celebrations would include magical workings connecting with gardens involving both ends of the emotional spectrum (such as exhilaration and rage) acknowledging also the darker aspects of the Mother Goddess. Vine leaves can be used to enhance goals and ambitions. This year, being very close to the Equinox, the Vine Moon will carry the frequency of balance and harmony embodied by the Equinox when light and dark are in perfect balance.  

    Other names for a Full Moon in September are: Fruit Moon, Harvest Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Worm Moon, Sugar Moon, Chaste Moon, (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Equinox Moon could also be called the Harvest Moon, or Hunter’s Moon, Frosty Moon, Beaver Moon (after the autumnal equinox)or Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Planting Moon, or Milk Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon, or Strawberry Moon (after the spring equinox). Source = earthsky.org. 

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body.  In view of this being an Equinox Full Moon (where the focus is on balance), I would say it's an even better time than usual for a detox.  I recommend anoil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    Tuesday 20th March is the Pagan Vernal Equinox at 16.15.  

    The Equinox is a time when light and dark are equal over the whole world. It's good to mark the moment with silence and stillness. See my live Facebook Pelusia/Facebook video.

    Representing balance of opposites, symbolically it's a great time to bring harmony and balance into your life.

    In the UK and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox, in the Southern Hemisphere it's the Autumn Equinox. Image left by Przemyslaw "Blueshade" Idzkiewicz shows the illumination of Earth by Sun on the day of equinox  (vernal and autumnal) and is from Wikimedia Commons.

    On this day the sun rises exactly at due East and sets at due west. This fact makes it a good day for finding due east and due west from your favourite site for watching the night sky. Simply go outside around sunset or sunrise and notice the exact location of the sun on the horizon with respect to familiar landmarks. See Earthsky Websitefor more.

    PhuelHere is an Angela McGerr Angelic Meditation with Barakiel (the ruler of Pisces) and Phuel (guardian angel of water) which could be conducted for the Equinox 

    The Zodiac Sign of Pisces is ruled by Neptune and is of course a Water Sign. 

    This Equinox day (final day of the Sign) gives you an opportunity to use the healing powers of Barakiel, Ruler of Pisces, and Phuel, Angel Ruler of Neptune, who is also Lord of Waters and Powers of the Moon.

    See image of Phuel (right) by Richard Rockwood, taken from Angela's Harmony Angel Cards, last few copies available from our Harmony Shop as it's now out of print).

    Try this exercise with these two mighty Angels. Use it to heal, wash away emotional turbulence and hurt, for heart and thymus to re-expand. 

    • You could do this exercise while in the bath, or just swimming, or if this is impossible just use your imagination.
    • Sit quietly and focus your attention within, thinking about your desire to calm your emotions.  Say Barakiel’s and Phuel's names three times to invite them in.
    • If you have an aquamarine (one of Phuel's crystals), hold this in your left hand and it will be programmed with healing during this exercise.
    • Start taking deep breaths of blue green energy, breathing them right down through your body.
    • Imagine you are walking in a beautiful place of nature.
    • Presently you come to a pool of crystal clear water, reflecting a blue sky.
    • Know that with the power of water energy your spirit can go down into this water to be healed and washed clean of emotional turbulence.
    • Imagine that you can step into the water and float in it. 
    • If you wish to you can merge for a short time with the water itself, becoming the medium that nourishes fish and other water creatures.
    • The water is very still, silken in texture and peaceful.
    • The sun shines into its depths, lighting the grains of sand at the bottom.
    • Let go of your cares; they are washed away by the healing power of water.
    • When you feel relaxed, come out of the water (real or imaginary)
    • Ask Phuel to seal in your emotional healing, and seal your crystal with silver and aquamarine rays; remember to thank him and Barakiel for their assistance.

  • Friday 19th April, Willow Full Moon

    Moon Scarletts shot

    Friday 19th April @ 12.12 is the Easter Willow Full Moon.

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body.

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel. See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    To the right is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, this is the Willow Moon.  At this time of year, Europeans can expect the best conditions for healthy growth of the Willow, namely lots of rain!  Known as Saille (pronounced Sahl-yeh) it is associated with healing and growth. Willows planted close to your home are reputed to provide protection from flooding, storms and other natural disasters, even warding away other dangers. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website I happily stumbled upon.  This may be why they are often planted in cemeteries. Willow month is the time to work on healing rituals, building esoteric knowledge, studying women's mysteries and nurturing yourself and others.   Also see thoughtco.com.

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Friday 27th February is Full Moon Healing Circle, Full Moon @ 08.17 Saturday 28th February

    February Healing CircleFriday 26th Februaryis our monthly Full Moon virtual healing circleat 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT).

    This month it costs £10 (+ £1 Paypal fee). From next month, the cost will change.

    During this session, we connect with other like-minded people and together we work through a mindful chakra balancing process using colours and etheric crystals, with the aim that all participants will experience a degree of unity consciousness.

    This activity serves as a good taster of my work in general and the virtual format of our Zoom based programme. 

    Saturday 28th February @ 08.17 is Snow Full Moon. 

    Gabriel in corp coloursImage of Angel Gabriel (right) by Richard Rockwood, is taken from Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel cards; signed copies are available from the Harmony ShopClick here for Angela McGerr's Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel. 

    The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons, called the February Full Moon the Snow Moon. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. The Snow Moon is apparently named because historically it's been the snowiest month in America. Other tribes knew it as the Hunger Moonbecause it isn't conducive to hunting. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this).

    It was thought the Celts also had names for each Full Moon of the year, however it seems this is a Neo Pagan belief first proposed by Robert Graves in his book The White Goddess published in 1948. In it, Graves reinvented the genuine early-medieval Irish ogham alphabet, purported to be based on trees, and created a Celtic Tree Calendar, naming 13 months after trees. Although it isn't an ancient tradition, being a tree lover myself and interested in Celtic words, I find it rather charming.

    So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Ash Moon (learnreligions.com). The Druids, venerated all nature but the three most sacred trees to them was the Ash, Oak and Thorn. The Ash tree features a great deal in Irish and Scottish folklore (the latter also including the Rowan, a form of Mountain Ash).  In the 12th Century, Marie de France wrote one of her famous lais about the Ash. The Ash is associated with rituals, magic and prophesy, making it a perfect choice for divining. Indeed, traditionally, more tools were made from Ash than any other wood, because it's not only very strong but it also resists shock (better than other hard woods such as oak or beech) making it an ideal choice for tool handles.  Ash berries were placed inside a baby's cradle to prevent the child being replaced with a 'changeling'. One of Odin's names in Norse is Ygg, which also means Ash, with the World tree, Yggdrasil, being an Ash.  Odin's spear was made from this tree. 

    Whilst writing a previous Blog article I wondered if our word 'ash' for something burnt was derived from the possible act of burning the magical tools (made predominantly of Ash) in an attempt to destroy the power of the Celtic Priests.

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon (Saturday 13th March) is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. 

    Anyway, whatever the weather conditions, it's a fantastic excuse to get people of all ages outside in the fresh air and re-connecting with nature. Something our modern lifestyles and obsession with technology can distract us from doing...

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

    If you would like to experience one of our spiritual offerings (meditation, reading, 1:1 healing, a Forest Bathing+ session or a full mentoring course), why not ask for a Harmony Healing gift voucherfor a birthday or other celebratory occasion?

  • Friday 5th June, Hawthorn Full Moon & Penumbral Eclipse (& Angelic Meditation)

    Moon Scarletts shotFriday 5th June @ 20.12 UK time(GMT/UT+1; click here to convert to your time zone) is the Hawthorn Full Moon. It's also a Penumbral Lunar eclipse. The eclipse will be at least partially visible in Asia, Australia, Europe and Africa. It will be visible in London between 21.01 and 22.04, with maximum effect at 21.06 when the entire moon is above the horizon, at this point it might even turn a darker shade.  However, penumbral eclipses are not always easy to discern at all. 

    This is the first of a series of three eclipses, with an annular solar eclipse 21st June and another penumbral lunar eclipse on 5th July. More details at timeanddate.com. 

    Even if we can't see much (or anything at all from some parts of the globe) there will still be an effect energetically. Tonight, Friday 5th June, we are holding the next Virtual Harmony Healing Circle, 7.30-9.30pm £11 (half price to VFoA & RSE graduates).

    This eclipse falls in the 16th degree of Sagittarius.  Eclipses are said to warn us that things may not be as they seem. Reflection on alternative meanings could be advisable. Childhood issues may come up for clearing and we could be feeling vulnerable a few days either side, especially as our political environment could be making folks feel vulnerable anyway.  Astrologer Lisa Mendes says:

    "Over the next 18 months or so, expect the spotlight to move from family dynamics and childhood traumas and wounds, to fall on how we make decisions and/or moral calls (faith vs reason) and discern fact from fiction when it comes to navigating the Information Age. Do we truly think logically when we make important political decisions, for example, or do we default  to deeply-held belief systems or become overly reliant on commonly-held assumptions? Elon Musk is quoted as saying that one way we can very quickly unplug from the matrix and start thinking independently is to question all assumptions and go back to first principles - not a bad idea, especially in an era where psychological manipulation and cyber warfare by stealth is mostly how elections are won."

    See Lisa's astrologysphere.com website for more. For those interested in the impact of eclipses on their personal zodiac, Lisa offers complementary video 'eclipse-scopes' to her subscribers, you can sign up at her astrology sphere online shop.

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook. Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The Moon shines due to its surface reflecting the Sun's rays. A lunar eclipse takes place when the Earth moves between the Sun and the Moon thereby blocking some or all of the Sun's light from reaching to the Moon. A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when there is an imperfect alignment between the Sun, Earth, and the Moon; causing the Earth to block some of the Sun's light from reaching the Moon's surface. This covers all (or part of) the Moon with the outer edge of its shadow, which is also known as the penumbra. The penumbra is considerably fainter than the dark core of the Earth's shadow; hence a penumbral eclipse of the Moon is often difficult to distinguish from a normal Full Moon. See timeanddate.com for a detailed explanation.

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, this is the Hawthorn Moon following soon after Beltane. Known as Huath (pronounced Hoh-uh), the plant is prickly with pretty blossoms and is associated masculine energy, fire and fertility; tradition dictating that male potency is high at this time of year.  Hawthorn can be used for magic rituals involving masculine power (it has a raw phallic energy about it), making professional connections and business decisions. The faerie realm are said ti like it, with the fae being particularly attracted when Hawthorns grow together with Ash and Oak. See thoughtco.com.

    Other names for a northern hemisphere Full Moon in June are: Strawberry Moon, Lotus Moon, Oak Moon, Cold Moon, Honey Moon, Mead Moon, Full Rose Moon or Long Night’s Moon.

    The Strawberry Moon, was so named by the Algonquin tribe because it heralded the perfect time to pick wild strawberries. Indigenous tribes - such as the Native Americans - were much more aligned with lunar cycles (rather than our 'solar' calendar) and used labels to identify each moon with events in nature which coincided. See article in The Telegraph for more on this.

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel. See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

  • Full Moon Angela McGerr Angelic Meditation

    Gabriel Image by Richard Rockwood, from A Harmony of Angels by Angela McGerrA Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel by Angela McGerr, from her A Harmony of Angels Book

    BECAUSE OF GABRIEL’S MOON INFLUENCE, YOU CAN USE THE TIME/POWER OF FULL MOON IN VARIOUS WAYS

    As Ruler of the Moon Gabriel can help you to draw on the true feminine power of the moon, allowing you to develop your intuition as well as understanding and realising your true potential.  Maximum time of benefit is the day of full moon.  Angels are usually thought to be without gender, but Gabriel is considered a feminine energy. You can use one of the following crystals to help in your invocations: moonstone, which is for developing inner wisdom and resources and learning to follow your hunches, or selenite, which is associated with the moon.  You could also use a general angelic stone such as milky quartz or angel hair quartz. 

    • Invoke Gabriel by name three times, and then ask her to help you focus the powerful energy of the moon to your heart and your mind, to develop your intuition, in Love and Light, Love and Light, Love and Light.
    • Ask Gabriel to completely surround you with protective pure white light during this meditation.  In your mind see the radiance all around you.
    • Imagine roots growing from your feet into the floor, anchoring and grounding.
    • Take some slow, deep breaths in and out and focus on your inner self
    • Feel yourself relaxing and going deeper.  Let external sounds become part of the background, and maintain your focus within heart. 
    • Visualise the meridian line within your body, extending downwards.  It reaches from the crown on top of your head, through the major chakras - your brow, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and finishes at the base of your spine, base/root chakra of your being.
    • Visualise the moon and imagine her pure light.  Draw this silver radiance down into your crown, which is your spiritual connection to the cosmos.
    • Next feel the energy filling your brow, reaching your intuition, subconscious and the world of your dreams. 
    • Now it travels down to your throat, which is your power of creative expression.
    • You can also ask for Gabriel’s help to focus the powerful energy of the moon to your heart, to clarify your life purpose.
    • Now imagine the energy flowing further down the meridian line and completely filling the column within your body, travelling down your legs and tingling in your feet.
    • Through your feet send energy to the heart of Mother Earth, and ask for her blessing on your life path and new aspirations.
    • Bring the power of Mother Earth back into your energy meridian.
    • Feel the combined powers of Earth and Moon filling the cells of your body.
    • Ask to understand your own true potential and for the ability to develop into it for your highest good.
    • Feel yourself filled with purpose and a renewed sense of direction.  Enjoy!
    • Open your eyes when ready and stamp your feet if you feel you need to ground your energies.
    • Remember to always thank the angels for their loving assistance.

  • Full Moon, 29th May 2018

    Supermoon 2014 08 10 22 04 16Tuesday 29th May @ 15.20 is the Full Moon. This Full Moon in May is also known as the Flower Moon.

    The Flower Moon,was so named by the Native American tribes because spring is officially in full swing by May with colourful blooms and flowers abundant over the  countryside. Different tribes label it as the Corn Planting Moon because of its association with crops being sown in time for the harvest and others identify it with its traditional brihtness hence naming it the Bright Moon and siome peole refer to it as the Milk Moon. See article in The Telegraph for more on this.

    Similarly, the Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year. This is Huath (pronounced Hoh-uh); the Hawthorn Moon. The Hawthorn carries much raw masculine energy, carrying phallic qualities, and fire heralding a month of high male potency (following soon after Beltane) and hence fertility. The Hawthorn is also associated with the Fae (Faerie realm)and often grows near Ash and Oak trees, all of which attract the Fae.  Hawthornis used for magic drawing on masculine power which is good for making professional connections and business decisions. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website,which I stumbled across earlier this year.

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel.

    To the left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    Both are out of print and collectible but we still have a few remaining copies via the Harmony Shop. 

    See link for instructions on Angela's Angelic Meditation with Gabriel.

    At the time of the Full Moon the Sun and Moon are in opposition.  The solar (sun) energy influences our masculine/yang archetypal attributes (our outer world) such as strength, courage, identity, self-esteem, expression, conscious beliefs and determination together with our logical outlook.  Whereas the lunar energy (moon) influences our femininely archetypal attributes (our inner world), such as our unconscious beliefs, hidden emotions, nurturing feelings, creativity and intuition. The Full Moon is a powerful and appropriate time to show gratitude for life and the riches and bounty bestowed upon us by Mother Earth (Gaia).

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body.  In view of this being a Super Blue Blood Imbolc Moon, I would say it's an even better time than usual for a detox.  I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Full Rowan Supermoon & lunar eclipse, Monday 21st January @ 05.12

    Gabriel Harmony Angel Card

    Monday 21st January @ 05.12 (Sunday night/Monday morning) is the Full Moon and this is the first of three consecutive Supermoons. This month there's also a total lunar eclipse which can be seen from the UK/Europe, South & North America,Greenland, Iceland, western & northern Africa plus the Arctic area. If you are able to witness this total eclipse of the moon, it's worth making the effort because there won't be another one until 26th May 2021. Central and eastern Africa, Europe and Asia will see a partial eclipse. Full Moons at the time of eclipse are often called Blood Moons because the shadow of the earth over the moon makes it appear red. See timeanddate.com. The total eclipse takes place between 04.41 and 05.43 GMT. To convert GMT (Universal Time) to your local time

    This lunar eclipse follows a solar eclipse we experienced onSunday 6th January, and the period between the two has been a time for reflection and decluttering in all aspects of life.

    A Supermoon is when the moon appears larger in the sky because it is reaches the closest proximity to Earth (known as the perigee*) coinciding with the New Moon or Full Moon. Since the New Moon is only a sliver to the naked eye, the Full Moon Supermoons are much more of a visual treat, when the moon may appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter than on any other Full Moon occasion. Although it may not seem all that noticeable to us and of course it will depend on good clear viewing conditions; however due to an optical illusion, it will always look bigger and more luminous when closer to the horizon.

    *The moon orbits around the Earth in an ellipse which takes just over 29 days, meaning that it reaches points in the year when it is at its closest (perigee, when it is about 363,000 km away) and furthest (apogee, when it is about 405,500 KM) from our planet. Those old enough might be reminded of Bed Knobs and Broomsticks when Angela Lansbury mentions the perigee and  apogee in one of her invocations!

    On 14th November 2016, the moon reached its closest to the Earth since 26th January 1948 and it won't come closer to us until 25th November 2034! More at Earthsky Website.

    Anyway, whatever the weather conditions, it's a fantastic excuse to get people of all ages outside in the fresh air and re-connecting with nature. Something our modern lifestyles and obsession with technology can distract us from doing...

    Between Full Moon and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. 

    If you are an angel fan, the angel of the Moon is Gabriel. Above left is a beautiful image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from my sister Angel McGerr's A Harmony of Angels book (and Harmony Angel Cards).

    The Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year, and associated each with a tree; this is the Rowan Moon(thoughtco.com). The Rowan Moon is connected with the Celtic Goddess of home and hearth, mothers and families - Brighid, celebrated on Imbolc (1st February). Brighid (also kown as Bridie or Brigit) is a fire Goddess The Rowan is linked with personal power, success and astral travel and this was a popular time for Celts to perfiorm initiations. The Celts called this month Luis (pronounced loush) and its associated with protection Rowan leaves were used by the Norsemen on their protective rune staves). In some cultures, Rowan is planted around graveyards to prevent the dead from lingering.

    Other names for a Full Moon in January are: Old Moon, Moon After Yule (Northern Hemisphere) or Hay Moon, Buck Moon, Thunder Moon, Mead Moon (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Full Moon could also be called the Old Moon, Moon after Yule, Snow Moon, Hunger Moon, Wolf Moon, Sap Moon, Crow Moon or Lenten Moon (after the Winter Solstice)or Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Fruit Moon or Harvest Moon (after the Summer Solstice). Source = earthsky.org. 

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. As avoiding toxins is recommended for the Ivy Moon, detoxing might also be advisable. I recommend anoil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

  • Full Strawberry Moon, 28th June 2018

    Thursday 28th June @ 05.54 (Wednesday night/Thursday morning, Solstice Full Moon). It's also known as the Strawberry MoonLotus Moon , Oak Moon, Cold Moon, Honey Moon, Mead Moon, Full Rose Moon or Long Night’s Moon.Supermoon 2014 08 10 22 04 16

    The Strawberry Moon, was so named by the Algonquin tribe because it heralded the perfect time to pick wild strawberries. Indigenous tribes - such as the Native Americans - were much more aligned with lunar cycles (rather than our 'solar' calendar) and used labels to identify each moon with events in nature which co-incided. See article in The Telegraph for more on this.

    Similarly, the Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year. This is the Oak Moon, when they are appraching full bloom.  The oak signifies strength and power, typically towering over its fellow trees and was highly sacred to the mightly Druids. The oak is associated with invocations for fertility, strength, power, success and abundance. An acorn is meant to bring luck at interviews or business meetings, whereas catching a falling oak leaf is meant to bring health and wellbeing all year. The Celtscalled this month Duir,sometimes believed to be the stem word for druid and meaning door. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website,which I stumbled across earlier this year.

    The Snow Moon, was so named by the Native American tribes who named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons.  here isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Some Native Americans identified it as the Snow Moon to symbolise the heavy snowfall and challenging hunting conditions at this time of year. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this).

    Similarly, the Celts also had names for each Full Moon of the year and associated each with a tree. This is the Ash Moon; one of Odin's names in Norse is Ygg, which also means Ash, with the World tree, Yggdrasil, being an Ash.  Odin's spear was made from this tree. The Celts called this month Nion (pronounced knee-un)The Druids, venerated all nature but the three most sacred trees to them was the Ash, Oak and Thorn. The Ash tree features a great deal in Irish and Scottish folklore (the latter also including the Rowan, a form of Mountain Ash).  In the 12th Century, Marie de France wrote one of her famous lais about the Ash. The Ash is associated with rituals (especially ocean rituals), magic and prophesy, making it a perfect choice for divining, prophetic dreams and spiritual journeying for focussing on the inner self. Indeed, traditionally, more tools were made from Ash than any other wood, because it's not only very strong but it also resists shock (better than other hard woods such as oak or beech) making it an ideal choice for tool handles.  Ash berries were placed inside a baby's cradle to prevent the child being replaced with a 'changeling'.  More about this at the Celtic Weirdness websiteI happily stumbled upon.

    Other names for a Full Moon in February are: Snow Moon, Hunger Moon, Wolf Moon (Northern Hemisphere) or Grain Moon, Sturgeon Moon, Red Moon, Wyrt Moon, Corn Moon, Dog Moon or Barley Moon (Southern Hemisphere). Names for the moon can also relate to the season, so this Full Moon could also be called the Old Moon, Moon after Yule, Snow Moon, Hunger Moon, Wolf Moon, Sap Moon, Crow Moon or Lenten Moon (after the Winter Solstice i.e. Northern Hemisphere)or Thunder Moon, Hay Moon, Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Fruit Moon or Harvest Moon (after the Summer Solstice i.e. Southern Hemisphere). Source = earthsky.org.

  • Monday 16th May, Blood Moon @ 05:15 and Total Lunar Eclipse

    Flower Blood Moon

    Monday 16th May@ 05:15 (Sunday night/Monday morning) is Flower Moon & Total Lunar Eclipse

    Total lunar eclipses are sometimes called a Full Blood Moon Eclipse because of the orange-red glow the moon seems to adopt during the eclipse phase.  We have our monthly Full Moon Guided Healing Meditation tonight, see below for details.

    Although the eclipse won't be visible in UK or much of Europe, it will still affect us energetically. It will be visble in South/West Europe, South/West Asia, Africa, Much of North America, South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Antarctica. More at timeanddate.com.

    The Native American tribes who named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. This is the Flower Moon, due to the beautiful blossoms dotting the landscape. There isn't a standardised system however, as some tribes took a year to be 12 moon cycles, whilst others went with 13 moon cycles. Similarly some tribes worked with five seasons per year whereas others went with four. Other tribes knew it as the Corn Planting Moon, Planting Moon and Milk Moon. Some American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this)

    Although the Celts were believed to have revered nature, the idea that they also had tree names for each Full Moon of the year, is neo-Pagan, having been introduced by Robert Graves in the 1948, which I find rather charming. So, according to Robert Graves's imaginings, this is the Hawthorn Moon following soon after Beltane. Known as Huath (pronounced Hoh-uh), the plant is prickly with pretty blossoms and is associated masculine energy, fire and fertility; tradition dictating that male potency is high at this time of year.  Hawthorn can be used for magic rituals involving masculine power (it has a raw phallic energy about it), making professional connections and business decisions. The faerie realm are said ti like it, with the fae being particularly attracted when Hawthorns grow together with Ash and Oak. See thoughtco.com.

    The time between any Full Moon and the next New Moon is a good time, energetically, to detox the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    Aligning ourselves with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, hence being aware of the Full Moon (a good time for bringing projects to a conclusion) and the New moon (good for starting new projects) is excellent for bringing balance and wellbeing into our lives. For full immersion with moon energy join one of our New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment ProgrammesFor full immersion with moon energy join one of our New Moon New Vision, Lunar Cycle Alignment ProgrammesOur next New Moon New Vision lunar cycle alignment programme will run 25th October - 23rd November.
