  • 11th/12th August (Thursday night/Friday morning), Sturgeon Full Moon Supermoon plus Buddhist and Hindu Festival

    22 August Sturgeon Full MoonFriday 12th August @ 02:36 (Thursday night/Friday morning)is Sturgeon Moon, which is the fourth and final consecutive Supermoon. The monthly Full Moon meditation is the night before, on Thursday 11th at 7.30-9.30pm UK time. Book in at the Harmony Shop. If you would like a video guided meditation, but can't make this time, you can purchase our 'any month' pre-recorded Full Moon meditation at this section of the Harmony Shop.

    A Supermoon or Super Full Moon are names used when a Full Moon takes place at a time when the Moon is near its closest approach to Earth. See timeanddate.

    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!

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    The Native American tribes named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. The Full Moon in August is the Sturgeon 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. Some Native Americans identified this as the Sturgeon Moon as it was the month when the fish were typically abundant in North America.  Although once plentiful, sadly now they are rare enough to be considered endangered. Sturgeons can grow enormous - they can reach over 2 metres long and weigh up to 90 kilos, plus they can have amazingly long lives, the males up to 55 years and the females up to 150 years.  Sturgeons have a strange grey-green colouration, a pointed snout and feature a cat-like pair of tactile whiskers above their mouth and are sometimes referred to as 'living fossils' as they are part of a genus of fish which has existed for over 135 million years! See more at timeanddate.com.

    Although the Celts, wth their Druid priests, 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 Hazel Moon, as it's the season when the hazelnuts appear, and they were associated with protection and wisdom. Druid folklore revered the hazel for its connection with the sacred wells and magical springs which was home to the salmon of knowledge.  This August Full Moon was also known by the Celts as the Coll Moon, which means 'the life force inside you'. It's considered timely to focus on wisdom and knowledge, dream journaling, divination and dowsing. Painters, writers and musicians might find it a good time to re-kindle their intuition after a possible artistic block, try writing a poem or song this month. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website I happily stumbled upon.

    Angel Gabriel by Richard RockwoodOther tribes knew this August Full Moon as the Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Barley Moonand Fruit Moon, as it was the month when these various crops were harvested. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this).

    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.

    22 August Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival12th August is the Chinese Hungry Ghost Festival, which is the Buddhist Festival of All Souls or the Festival of Hungry Ghosts, when offerings are made until before the next New Moon (7th September) to spirits who have not yet found rest.

    The Hungry Ghost Festival, also known as the Zhongyuan Festival, takes place on the 15th day of the Ghost Month (which starts at a New moon), so it naturally co-incides with a Full Moon. 

    22 August Hindu Raksha Bandan Festival12th August is also Raksha Bandhan, the Hindu festival honouring the bond between brothers and sisters. 

    Celebrated on the day of the Full Moon in August, see Wikipedia for more on this.

    Brothers take a vow to protect their sisters, whilst sisters pray for a long long life for their brothers, sealed by tying a thread around their right wrist.

  • Monday 16th May, Pagan Festival of Lunantisidhe

    LunantisidheMonday 16th May is the Night of Lunantisidhe, a Celtic Festival honouring the fairy spirits of blackthorns. 

    From a website called selkywolf.com (no longer live), which featured extracts from 'A Witch's Guide to Faery Folk' by Edain McCoy, it seems that Lunantisidhe is a curious blending of the Latin word 'Luna' meaning 'moon' together with the Gaelic 'sidhe' which means 'faery'. They are the guardians of the blackthorn tree from which humans (and Leprechauns!) make shillelaghs, a walking stick indigenous to Ireland

    These fairies are - according to an AngelFire site - 'Wizened little stick creatures with long arms and fingers for climbing between the thorns'. Their sole purpose for existing seems to be to protect the blackthorn trees from human encroachment. The only time they approach the tree is to pay homage to the Moon Goddess at the Esbats (a specifc Full Moon Wicca Ceremony which may have it's origins in Celtic folklore), perhaps explaining why their name has a lunar connotation.

    According to another very informative site ecoenchantments.co.uk, unlike the majority of great mystic trees, the Blackthorn appears to be revered only in the British Isles (Celtic folklore of both Itish and Scottish tradition) with there being little or no association with the mythical traditions of other ancient civilisations.

    The Blackthorn, latin name Prunus Spinosa, is a tree of profound magical lore in the Celtic tradition. It is one of the designated Eight Chieftain Trees on the Ogham Tract, where its name is Straif (strife, said to be where the word came from in the English dictionary) and translates as ‘Increaser of Secrets.’  I feel it brings a whole new meaning to 'trouble and strife' the Cockney rhyming slang for wife!

    The Blackthorn is also know as sloe (after its fruit), sloe plum, snag, spiny plum, wishing thorn, faery tree, (dark) mother of the woods, pear hawthorn. Within the UK, the trees are an ancient, native pioneer species, with evidence that the fruits were eaten by early man. Blackthorn was used in Iron Age communities (c3400 yrs ago) as remains have been found, buried in a straw filled pit (believed to be used for ripening and preserving the bitter sloes) near Glastonbury in the Lake Village (recorded in a catalogue of findings by the excavator Arthur Bulleid).

    Blackthorn is also wellknown for its medicinal benefits, having been catalogues by both herbalists, John Gerard in 1597:  ‘The juice of sloes do stop the belly, the laske and bloodie fluxe, the inordinate course of womens terms, and all other issues of blood in man or woman.’

    Whilst Nicholas Culpeper, in 1653, recommends a decoction of the powdered bark of the roots, or of the fresh or dried berries as a cure for ‘lask of the belly , or stomach, or the bloody flux, and to ease the pains in the sides or bowels.’  He also recommended a distilled liquid of the flowers steeped in a highly honeyed mead, which he described as 'A most certain remedy, tried and approved, to ease all manner of gnawing in the stomach, sides and bowels, or any griping pains in any of them, to drink a small quantity when the extremity of the pain is upon them.’

    Undoubtedly Sloe Gin is still enjoyed today (made annually by my husband's Uncle Ron, aged 83, with sloes collected from the countryside).  Perhaps the continued popularity is due to its therapeutic benefits.

    As part of the Lunantisidhe festivities, holy trees marking sacred places and wells are acknowledged and new scraps of cloth are tied to their branches. 

    By keeping traditions, Pagan communities retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. 

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life.

  • Monday 1st August, Egyptian New Year & Celtic Lunasa or Lammas

    1st August Khemitian New Year1st August marks the Ancient Egyptian New year, traditionally marked the start of the Nile flood, started by the tears of Aset (Isis) over the death of Asar (Osirus). 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 indigenous name for Ancient Egypt was Khem. Khemitology is the study of Ancient Egypt according to the indigenous tribal elders & oral tradition wisdom keepers; which is quite different to traditional Egyptology though there is some overlap.  See Events & Courses for more about studying Khemitology as a stand alone online module or as part of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy healing

    shutterstock 114601966 Pagan wheelIn the Northern Hemisphere, this is also the Pagan Celebration of Lunasa (also known as Lammas), this is the start of the harvest, season of pregnancy, ripening, transformation and peace. This marks the height of the northern summer, when the Earth is most alive. Spellings vary for this Celtic/Gaelic Festival, which can be called Lughnasadh or Lúnasa (this latter 'Irish' spelling ironically appears closest to what most English-speakers would regard as the phonetic pronunciation — luu-na-sa), see atriptoireland.com for more on this. It is certainly the great festival of Lugh, or Lug, the great Celtic Sun King [Egyptian origins spring to mind here] and God of Light, with August is Lugh's sacred month.  As someone interested in etymology (the study of words) I am thinking that surely the word 'light' (especially with the peculiar silent 'gh' which came to be identified with a host of other rhyming words in English such as sight and fright) comes from 'lugh'?

    According to Celticdruidtemple.com, Lughnasa translates as "the games of Lugh" (pronounced as Lou or sometimes Luff) and alludes to the assembly for games coinciding with the first of three harvests. The month of August is apparently called Lughnasadh in Gaelic and it marks the last day of summer. This was a specifically Gaelic holiday and many of the other Celtic cultures also celebrate an autumn festival known by a range of names.  As Beltaine on 1st May marks the start of summer - Lughnasa marks the end of summer. Lughnasa is historically linked with Lugh, a leading Celtic deity and hero. These games with a bull sacrifice and major feast [with interesting echoes of the Egyptian Bull cult where Ausar (Osirus) was portrayed as a bull-headed deity), which I believe led to the unfortunate Mediterranean Bull Fighting tradition], and for some it was the start of a trial marriage.

    In some Wiccan and modern Pagan traditions, this festival for honouring Lugh is known as Lammas (see thoughtco.com). Allegedly, the word Lammas derives from an Old English phrase hlaf-maesse, translating as loaf mass. Lammas was an annual ritual, recogniing a community's dependency on what Thomas Hardy referred to as 'the ancient pulse of germ and birth.'"

    By keeping traditions, Pagan communities and those in Ancient Egypt retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

  • Monday 3rd August, Holly Full Moon plus Hindu Festival

    Image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood fro Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel Cards

    Monday 3rd August @ 16.59 is Full Moon (Holly Moon). Tonight, I'm holding a Virtual Harmony Healing Circle, 7.30-9.30pm UK time, £11 (half price to VFoA/RSE graduates).

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    The Druids and Celts had names for each Full Moon of the year. The Druids, venerated all nature and to them this is the Holly Moon,an evergreen which reminds us of the immortality of nature. This Full Moon was also known by the Celts as the Tinne,pronounced chihnn-uh';they saw hollyas a potent symbol of masculinity and firmness. Weapons were often constructed from its wood but it was also revered for its protective magic. A sprig of holly can be hung in the home, or used as a charm, for safety and good luck. Holly water was created by soaking leaves overnight in spring water under a full moon, then used for protective blessing. I wonder if it was the origin of 'holy water'?  More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website.

  • Monday 6th June, first of three dates with 666 Numerology

    555 numerology

    Monday 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 also being Midsummers Day) will carry secondary 666 energy as the components of these dates also add up to 6. 

    What is Numerology?
    Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers.

    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). 

    The Numerology of the Number 6 and 666

    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. Number 6 also symbolises beauty and high ideals.

    But by far the most vital representation of the number 6 is healing and integration, particularly regarding personal cellular vibration. 

    It’s bizarre that 666 has been associated with the number of the devil, since it is a very positive number in numerology. Mystics believe it is precisely because of its empowering nature that it has been concealed from common access.

    The 6-pointed star represents the Macrocosm - Divinity within all. 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.

    666 is also known as the number of the Sun - Carbon (CO2) which is the chemical basis of all physical life. It has 6 protons, 6 neutrons and 6 electrons. The shape of carbon molecules points to the hexagram, which is the symbol of unity.

    According to the bible, the world was created in 6 days

    “Six is a number perfect in itself, not because God created all things in six days; rather, the convert is true God created all things in six days because the number is perfect.” Saint Augustine (The City of God)

    Edwin Courtenay on the numerology of 6

    6 is the number of the Mother and 666 (666 added up = 18 = 9) is the number of the Wisewoman or Crone - the fact that there are three 6s (3 being the number of the Maiden) revealing the number to be sacred to the Divine and Holy Mother - the triplicity that is Sophia, Shekinah and Seige - Wisdom, Love and Silence! 

    According to Edwin, some would assert that number 666, a powerful number representing the Great Goddess, is traditionally associated with the Devil or the Anti-Christ and is veiled by Christianity in darkness and doom, in order to turn us away from its true power as liberator and empowerer of humanity! 

    666 is mathematically described as a triangular number (the number reached if we add each of the first 36 numbers together).

    The Ancient Egyptians - The Number Six represents Tehuti (Djeuti, Thoth), the God of Wisdom

    666 numerology TehutiIn Egyptian art, Tetuti (Thoth) is depicted as an ibis-headed god or a baboon. According to tradition,Tehuti invented writing and numbers, hence we was the scribe of the gods and the patron god of scribes.

    Subsequently, scribes taught by Tehuti created the letters of the Roman alphabet and the Arabic number set. Pagan religious icons were used to create the symbols that are the letters and numbers we know and use today.

    The number 6 is a Pagan religious icon, representing the head of an Ibis. Pagan religious icons can be used to record and communicate our thoughts See resurrectisis.org

    Herodotus wrote, around the 5th Century BC: Of all the nations of the world, the Khemitians are the happiest, healthiest and most religious. 

    This was attributed to their holistic view of man as a function of the Cosmos; they saw it as essential to be in tune with metaphysical realities in their daily lives. The complex vibrations of the body were a reflection of the rhythms, harmonies and pulsations of the universe.  When out of tune, the body would display disease.  To heal a person, it was necessary to use magic to summon the healing harmonic phenomena. 

    The Khemitians believed that man was created in the image of God and embodied all living creatures. All aspects of nature, such as colours, crystals, animals, plants etc. had counterparts within man.  Man’s body was his temple; and the rite of self-perfection was his soul purpose and ultimate destiny. 

    They also understood that if man was a microcosm of the universe (represented by 5 – the numerology of 2021), then all aspects of man would manifest on a magnified scale within the universe; in other words, the universe was a macrocosm of man.  The Macrocosm is represented by the number 6 – the numerology of 2022.  Hence last year and this year work together to escalate our spiritual growth.

    The Emerald Tablets, attributed to Tehuti (also called Djeuti, Thoth, Hermes and Mercury at various historical junctures, with the Greek version Hermes Trismegistus giving us the term Hermetic Philosophies) details how everything we see is a representation of what we don't see - As Above, So Below - with man being a 'Microcosm' or miniature replica of the 'Macrocosm' being the All.

    Our bodies contain our own set of energetic lines and points and although only remnants of what they once were, these lines and points continue to serve as our interface with the universe. This interface is a channel that facilitates our transfer of information and energy between macrocosm and microcosm, the universe and humankind. At one point in time, we became disconnected from these lines and diluted our inherent connection to the universe, distancing us from our previously rapid and expansive rate of evolution.

    Thus we are intimately connected with everything. Our individual actions cause reactions in the macrocosm and activities in the greater universe/stars manifest within us.  Physical functions of body parts were seen as manifestations of cosmic functions and particular attributes with specified planets. 

    There was a strong astrological element too, with medicines being administered at specified times to coincide with astrological influences.  Operations were timed to take advantage of beneficial cosmic rhythms using colours, metals and numbers as manipulative tools.  Hekau (mantras) would be invoked, with music and sound being used to create appropriate vibrational enhancements.  Incantations and chanting created controlled influences on the affected organs. The correct pronunciation of Hekau or Neteru (the plural of Neter) could oust incompatible energies which were causing discomfort and recalibrate the cellular vibration to a more harmonious setting. 

    The Ancient Greeks - the Number Six is a perfect number

    The Pythagoreans acknowledged number 6 to be the first perfect number. In mathematics a perfect number is when all the numbers divisors (excluding the number itself) are added, the sum equals the number itself. 1+2+3=6

    In addition when including the number itself and dividing by two the result is the number itself. (1+2+3+6)/2 = 6

    Perfect numbers are rare. The Ancient Greeks identified four perfect numbers: 6 – 28 – 496 – 8,128. Throughout history perfect numbers have fascinated mathematicians and, over time, more perfect numbers have been discovered. See mysticalnumbers.com

    Repeated numbers in Numerology
    Double numbers (i.e. 11, 22, 33 etc.) and triple numbers (111, 222, 333 etc.) are called repdigits and this intensifies the meaning.  With 666, we have an additional factor that 666 is a Harshad number (divisible by the sum of its digits). 

    Harshad is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘Joy-giver’. 

    Angelic Numerology
    My sister, Angela McGerr, refers to Angel Numerology. 

    Last year was 5 numerology. In Angela's system, she describes 5 as the number of raising of spiritual consciousness, linked to the five-point star of Microcosm. 55 means you are reaching the next, higher level, while 555 mean you have attained a certain level of Mastery in a healing discipline or Angelic Wisdom, or another esoteric subject, greatly furthering your own Soul Quest.

    This year we have 6 numerology, which is the macrocosm. Hence, the numerology of 666, gives us both the bigger picture (6) whereas last year was the smaller detail (5).

    5 brings expansion through spiritual growth and 6 brings healing and consolidation of that personal expansion, hence life can be said to be dance of 5 & 6 as this cycle repeats ongoingly.  

    Summary
    Last year we had 555 numerology on 5th May 2021, with 5 being the number of change, motion, freedom and exploration. 5 is also said to represent the Microcosm (the individual) and 6 is said to represent the Macrocosm (the collective). 6 is the number of creativity, of family, relationships and success. This year on 6th June 2022, we have 666, so 3 times the opportunity of eliminating our fears and creating successful relationships.

    Healing therefore involves the subtle manipulation of the macrocosm, which resulted in a beneficial manifestation within the universal replica, the microcosm, namely the human being. Man was born mortal but because he contained the seed of the divine, could be heavily influenced by divine intervention.  Life’s purpose was to nourish that seed and move towards a higher state of consciousness, leading to a reunification with the Divine.   

    Author Bruce Lipton, says a human body comprises 50 trillion cells, each meeting the definition of a living organism in as much as they respire, digest, reproduce, excrete and demonstrate sensitivity, growth and movement.  Hence each cell is like a miniature human being. The current population of the Earth is less than 7.7 billion. In many ways, each of us is like a single cell within the collective humanity. 

    If 50 trillion individual cells can harmonise together as a single community, there must be hope for 7.7 billion to co-ordinate positive thoughts and co-create a better future for our planet. 

    Numerology is seen by some as a way of bringing balance, harmony and meaning into your life. Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing.

  • Saturday 14th September, Equinox Micro Full Moon @ 05.53

    Image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood fro Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel Cards

    Saturday 14th September @ 05.53 (Friday night/Saturday Morning) is the Equinox Micro Full Moon. This year it's also the Equinox Moon because of its proximity to the Equinox which this year is Monday 23rd @ 08.50, which will be the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere (including the UK) and the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere.

    A Micromoon happens when a New Moon or Full Moon coincides with the apogee; when the Moon's orbit is farthest away from Earth. Because the Moon orbits Earth on an elliptical path, one side of the path is always closer to the Earth than the other. See  timeanddate.com for more about this.

    Click here for Angela McGerr's Full Moon Meditation with Gabriel. Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. 

    Image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood from Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel Cards, available from the Harmony Shop (signed by Angela).

    Between this date and the next New Moon is considered as a good time energetically for detoxing the body. I recommend an oil pulling technique, with coconut oil, which must be from a glass container for best taste.

    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 the 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. 

    Similarly the Native American tribes, and indeed Anglo-Saxon and Germanic Tribes, named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons. The Full Moon in September is the Harvest 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. Whilst some believe that Harvest Moon was a Native American expression, the term has been recorded in Anglo Saxon and Old High German languages since the 700s. See more at timeanddate.com.

    Other Native American tribes knew this September Full Moon as the Barley Moon and Full Corn Moon to signify when these crops are at their most ready for harvesting. Many American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this).

  • Sturgeon Full Moon, Bank Holiday Weekend, 26th-27th August 2018

    Image of Gabriel by Richard Rockwood fro Angela McGerr's Harmony Angel Cards

    Sunday 26th August is Pagan Full Moon at 12.58.

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

    © Surub | <a href="https://www.stockfreeimages.com/">Stock Free Images</a>The Sturgeon Moon, was so named by the Native American tribes who named each moon to keep track of the months and seasons.  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. Some Native Americans identified the Sturgeon Moon as it was the month when the fish were typically abundant in North America.  Although once plentiful, sadly now they are rare enough to be considered endangered. Sturgeons can grow enormous - they can reach over 2 metres long and weigh up to 90 kilos, plus they can have amazingly long lives, the males up to 55 years and the females up to 150 years.  Sturgeons have a strange grey-green colouration, a pointed snout and feature a cat-like pair of tactile whiskers above their mouth (amazing photo by © Surub | Stock Free Images) and are sometimes referred to as 'living fossils' as they are part of a genus of fish which has existed for over 135 million years! See more at timeanddate.com.

    Other tribes knew this August Full Moon as the Green Corn Moon, Grain Moon, Barley Moonand Fruit Moon, as it was the month when these various crops were harvested. American Farmers have adopted these titles so that they are still used today. (See article in the Telegraph for more on this)

    Similarly, the Druids and Celts also had names for each Full Moon of the year. The Druids, venerated all nature and to them this is the HazelMoon,as it's the season when the hazelnuts appear, and they were associated with protection and wisdom. Druid folklore revered the hazel for its connection with the sacred wells and magical springs which was home to the salmon of knowledge.  This August Full Moon  was also known by the Celts as the Coll Moon,which means 'the life force inside you'. It's considered timely to focus on wisdom and knowledge, dream journalling, divination and dowsing. Painters, writers and musicians might find it a good time to re-kindle their intuition after a possible artitistic block, try writing a poem or song this month. More about this at the Celtic Weirdness website I happily stumbled upon.

    Sunday 26th August is also Raksha Bandhan, the Hindu festival honouring the bond between brothers and sisters.  Celebrated on the day of the Full Moon in August, some might celebrate it on the 25th August this year.  See website for more.

    Monday 27th August is the Summer Bank Holiday in the UK.

  • Sunday 1st May, Celtic Pagan Beltane plus Roman Bona Dea

    May Day BeltaneSunday 1st May is May Day and Beltane - a Celtic word meaning 'fires of Bel' (Bel was a Celtic and Gaelic Deity). It is a fire festival that celebrates the coming of summer and the fertility of the coming year. Celtic Priests, as well as other high ranking officials in Celtic society, were called Druids. 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. 

    Beltane is one of the four Celtic seasonal festivals; along with Lughnasadh, Samhain and Imbolc.  See yesterday's Blog for more on the meaning and festivities of Beltane.

    Bona Dea 1st May1st May was 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 (or wife/sister depending on sources) of the nature-god Faunus and was associated with supplying medicinal healing herbs in her temple garden.

    Bona Dea was also invoked for freedom from slavery; many of her worshippers were freed slaves and plebeians, and many were women seeking aid in sickness or for fertility.

    This Festival was celebrated by women only, with men being barred from any knowledge of her mysteries!

    This would have comprised part of the six day Roman Festival of Floralia, commencing on 28th April (Julian Calender equivalent), detailed on my earlier Blog.

    By keeping traditions, Celtic and Roman communities retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.

    Joanna's Harmony Healing activities - not involving any rolling in the dew celebrations - are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life!

  • Wednesday 4th May, Veneration of the Thorn

    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 Monday 16th May, honouring the fairy spirits of blackthorns (Hawthorns are whitethorns).

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

  • Wednesday 5th May, first of three dates with 555 Numerology

    555 numerologyWednesday 5th May is a primary 555 in numerology.2021 is a '5' year in numerology (2+0+2+1 = 5), May is the 5th month and today is the 5th day of the month, so this is a primary 555 as each component of the month adds up to 5.

    Friday 14th & Sunday 23rd May will carry secondary 5:5:5 energy as the components of these dates also add up to 5. 

    What is Numerology?
    Numerology is the study of the symbolism of numbers.

    As well determining aspects of your personality and life purpose from the analysis of your birthdate, together with the encoded numbers in the letters of your name, it is also a science attributing meaning and significance to what could appear as random numbers observed in your environment and/or happening globally. 

    Digits of higher numbers are added together until a single digit is reached. 

    What is the Numerology of the Number 5?
    In numerology, the number 5 can be said to denote adventure, change, motion, travel, freedom, exploration, variety, sensuality, being unattached (to outcomes), curiosity, experience, periodicity, knowledge seeker and teacher, imaginative, child-like and playful. With the highs that come with these attributes, 5s also carry instability and unpredictability, and radical changes.

    The spiritual meaning of 5 draws our attention to the wonder of life, and beckons us to appreciate the perception of chaos all around us. 5 has wild vibrations: primitive and erratic. It is said that when 5 pops into your life, be prepared for some action, like a journey, which can be physical or meditative.  It’s certainly an amazing number on which to meditate. 

    The number 5 is the most dynamic and energetic of all the single-digit numbers. It is unpredictable, always in motion and constantly in need of change. Although it comprises an almost equal mix of masculine and feminine qualities, in general it is slightly more feminine, though certainly not demure or submissive.  In Indian Vedic lore it is ruled by Mercury and denotes intellect. 

    However, the most important meaning of the number 5 is 'Expansion' especially with regard to personal cellular vibration.  5 is the number of harmony, balance and divine grace. 

    Examples of Sets of Five in Every Day Life
    Since nature is comprised of the 5 elements earth, air, fire, water and spirit/ether (or in the Chinese system, earth, fire, water, metal and wood) the number 5 can also be seen as a manifestation of nature itself and even God/the Creator. 

    5 features in human design, we have five identified senses (sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch) and 5 digits at the end of each limb. 

    The 5th dimension is the term used to describe the spiritual plane accessible to psychics, mediums and healers but illusive to the average person in the street. 

    555 23 MayThe Platonic Solids
    There are also 5 platonic solids, identified around 360 BCE by the philosopher Plato hence the name.

    Each solid comprises a three dimensional geometric shape of identically shaped regular polygons each meeting at the same three-dimensional angles. 

    1.Tetrahedron - 4 x equilateral triangle faces and represents the element fire;
    2. Hexahedron (cube) - 6 x square faces and represents the element earth;
    3. Octahedron - 8 x equilateral triangle faces and represents the element air;
    4. Dodecahedron - 12 x pentagonal faces and represents the element spirit;
    5. Icosahedron - 20 x equilateral triangle faces and represents the element water.

    The Ancient Egyptians Thoughts on the Number Five
    The Ancient Egyptians (who called their land ‘Khem’ or ‘Khemit’ so are best described as Khemitians), used the 5-pointed star or ‘microcosm’ to represent man as a miniature replica of God.  Interestingly, the Khemitian name for God was Neter, from which our word nature is probably derived.

    The 5-pointed star was their symbol for destiny as well as the number 5 itself. The ideal of the ‘realised’ man was to become a star; ‘to become one of the company of Ra’ in the sky, 5-pointed stars were the homes of departed souls. 

    The Khemitians also used the 5-pointed star to represent the five stages of the sun during the day and the five stages of life: Dawn was known as Kheper (scarab = birth/rebirth), high noon known as Ra (Inner Child), the afternoon sun was Oon (the Scholar), full afternoon sun Aten (the Wisdom Keeper) and finally at dusk Amen (the hidden or veil). 

    Herodotus wrote, around the 5th Century BC: Of all the nations of the world, the Khemitians are the happiest, healthiest and most religious. 

    This was attributed to their holistic view of man as a function of the Cosmos; they saw it as essential to be in tune with metaphysical realities in their daily lives.  The complex vibrations of the body were a reflection of the rhythms, harmonies and pulsations of the universe.  When out of tune, the body would display disease.  To heal a person, it was necessary to use magic to summon the healing harmonic phenomena. 

    The Khemitians believed that man was created in the image of God and embodied all living creatures.  All aspects of nature, such as colours, crystals, animals, plants etc. had counterparts within man.  Man’s body was his temple; and the rite of self-perfection was his soul purpose and ultimate destiny. 

    They also understood that if man was a microcosm of the universe, then all aspects of man would manifest on a magnified scale within the universe; in other words the universe was a macrocosm of man.  The Emerald Tablets, attributed to Djetuti (also called Tehuti, Thoth, Hermes and Mercury at various historical junctures, with the Greek version Hermes Trismegistus giving us the term Hermetic Philosophies) details how everything we see is a representation of what we don't see - As Above, So Below - with man being a 'Microcosm' or miniature replica of the 'Macrocosm' being the All.  

    Thus we are intimately connected with everything. Our individual actions cause reactions in the macrocosm and activities in the greater universe/stars manifest within us.  Physical functions of body parts were seen as manifestations of cosmic functions and particular attributes with specified planets. 

    There was a strong astrological element too, with medicines being administered at specified times to coincide with astrological influences.  Operations were timed to take advantage of beneficial cosmic rhythms using colours, metals and numbers as manipulative tools.  Hekau (mantras) would be invoked, with music and sound being used to create appropriate vibrational enhancements.  Incantations and chanting created controlled influences on the affected organs.  The correct pronunciation of Hekau or Neteru (the plural of Neter) could oust incompatible energies which were causing discomfort and recalibrate the cellular vibration to a more harmonious setting. 

    The Ancient Greeks Thoughts on the Number Five
    5 was the sacred number of the Pythagoreans and members of the brotherhood were sworn to secrecy on pain of death. 

    Repeated numbers in Numerology
    Double numbers (i.e. 11, 22, 33 etc.) and triple numbers (111, 222, 333 etc.) are called repdigits and this intensifies the meaning.  With 555, we have an additional factor that 555 is both a Sphenic number (a positive integer, the product of three distinct prime numbers) and a Harshad number (divisible by the sum of its digits). 

    Harshad is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘Joy-giver’. 

    555 is said to represent notification that a life changing thought or event has just occurred.  You may or may not like it, but whatever the case, your Spirit Guides are notifying you that a change in your life path direction has just occurred and it is time for you to change too. Move with it, follow these thoughts. 

    Angelic Numerology
    My sister, Angela McGerr, refers to Angel Numerology.  In her system, she describes 5 as the number of raising of spiritual consciousness, linked to the five-point star of Microcosm. 55 means you are reaching the next, higher level, while 555 mean you have attained a certain level of Mastery in a healing discipline or Angelic Wisdom, or another esoteric subject, greatly furthering your own Soul Quest. Metatron and Shekinah each have a five-pointed star, equalling ten (perfect number) and the spheres on the Cabbala Tree of Life. When the digits of 555 are added together (5+5+5 = 15 then 1+5 =6) we get 6, which is the macrocosm.  Hence, the numerology of 555, gives us both the bigger picture (6) and smaller detail (5). 5 brings expansion through spiritual growth and 6 brings healing and consolidation of that personal expansion, hence life can be said to be dance of 5 & 6 as this cycle repeats ongoingly.  

    Summary
    This 555 numerology, combines the forces change on the universal level, with micro change on the individual level. The universe is making changes for us whether we ask for them or not. The universe, with permission of our soul, is changing our individual directions. Some of us seek change even when we are not sure what change we want, and others resist change at all costs. But when we set out our dreams and let go of how we expect them to appear, we can allow the energies to take us to new heights. To a future full of possibilities, still hidden, but soon to be revealed. 

    Healing therefore involves the subtle manipulation of the macrocosm, which resulted in a beneficial manifestation within the universal replica, the microcosm, namely the human being.  Man was born mortal but because he contained the seed of the divine, could be heavily influenced by divine intervention.  Life’s purpose was to nourish that seed and move towards a higher state of consciousness, leading to a reunification with the Divine.   

    Author Bruce Lipton, says a human body comprises 50 trillion cells, each meeting the definition of a living organism in as much as they respire, digest, reproduce, excrete and demonstrate sensitivity, growth and movement.  Hence each cell is like a miniature human being.  The current population of the Earth is less than 7.7 billion. In many ways, each of us is like a single cell within the collective humanity. 

    If 50 trillion individual cells can harmonise together as a single community, there must be hope for 7.7 billion to co-ordinate positive thoughts and co-create a better future for our planet.

    Connecting and aligning with powerful numerology bringsbalance and wellbeing into our lives.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. The next RSE 1 module series starts 14th May with Violet Flame of Amenti and 17th May with Chakra Balancing, Axiatonal Alignment and Unity Consciousness.

    If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities following lockdown, which help to connect you with the lunar cycle, we have the next virtual healing circle later this month on Wednesday 26th May at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT+1), and costs £20 (+ £2 Paypal fee). 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.

    A number of virtual courses are now ready, details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. It's best to first check whether it would be welcomed, before gifting a healing or reading to other individual.

    Joanna offers distant intuitive readings (past life and/or aura readings) and distant 1-2-1 healings and virtual healing circles. We also have meditations available.
