  • Friday 19th May @ 16:35 UK time is New Moon & Black Moon by old definition

    .Pagan Dark Moon 13th 2Friday 19th May @ 16:53 is a Black Moon = third New Moon in a season with four New Moons.

    Several definitions exist for a Black Moon;it's not an astronomicalterm but has been popularised by astrologers and Wiccan proponents via social media. It can be the third New Moon in an astronomical season with four New Moons or the second New Moon in the same calendar month. The former definition applies in this case.  More at timeanddate.com

    Traditionally a Blue Moon was when a 4th New Moon or Full Moon appeared in a season where there would normally be three, now it is taken to mean when there are two New Moons or Full Moons in the same calendar month. Because this doesn't happen very often (only if a moon phase happens very near the beginning or end of the month), the expression 'once in a Blue Moon' in the UK refers to something seldom happening.

    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.

    Any New Moon is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board. 

    Gardening by the moon has been practised for eons. It's not about planting at night, it's about being in harmony with the natural growth patterns of plants.
     
    The moon progresses through four ‘phases’ or ‘quarters’ , each of which lasts about 7 days. Starting with the New Moon (today), the moon waxes (grows larger) and more visible.
     
    There is a daily increase in light until the Full Moon is visible. After Full Moon, the light wanes (reduces) gradually back until New Moon, completing the lunar cycle. In the same way that the moon influences the rise and fall of the tides, it has gravitational impact on the moisture in plants (sap), the soil and water table. These effects are aligned with the lunar cycle. 
     
    For sowing and harvesting, we need to be in harmony with the flow of moisture as it is drawn up the plant into the stem and leaves, fruit and seeds. Or down into the root zone with the gravitational pull of the moon for root vegetables. New Moon is not a good time to plant in your garden.

    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.

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

  • Friday 22nd December is the Pagan Solstice @ 03.27, Winter Solstice in Northern Hemisphere (Summer Solstice in Southern Hemisphere)

    21 Dec Wnter SolsticeFriday 22nd December is the Pagan Solstice @ 03.27. It's the Winter Solstice here in the UK - the shortest day of the year with just 7 hours and 49 minutes daylight. The solstice itself is the moment the sun is shining farthest to the south, directly over the Tropic of Capricorn, so the time varies every year, between December 20th and 23rd.

    The solstice marks the moment the sun shines at its most southern point and has been celebrated as a major Pagan festival, with rituals of rebirth, for thousands of years. Revellers gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise on the shortest day. Then, in the Northern Hemisphere, our days will gradually get longer until the summer solstice on Wednesday 21st June 2023 at 15:57.

    Many of the traditions now associated with Christmas had their roots in Pagan Winter Solstice celebrations; including Yule logs, mistletoe and Christmas trees. The Druids - an ancient Celtic order of priests, teachers, diviners and magicians who gleaned knowledge and enlightenment from sacred landscapes and ancient trees such as ‘Tutorial Oaks’ - used evergreen trees, holly and mistletoe to represent everlasting life. Druids would consider the cutting of trees as an offence against nature, but would decorate them with colourful rags tied on the branches.

    Celebrating traditional Celtic festivals like the Winter Solstice, helped Pagan communities come together and bring balance and harmony into people's lives.

    Aligning ourselves with heavenly bodies, partiucularly 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 a complete alignment with the Lunar Cyce, we are running aNew Year New Moon New Vision mentoring programme through the first full lunar cycle of 2024, detailed on this YouTube video.

    Attuned and Aligned
    This first lunar cycle of the New Year takes in the intention setting of the first New Moon, through Imbolc (1st/2nd Febuary) and culminates on the Chinese New Year on 10th/11th February when we move from the Year of the Rabbit to the Year of the Dragon. 

    This is intended to be a fun and participative event (though some activities will be recommended rather than compulsory), with members of the group supporting each other throughout the programme. Participants will be joining in from their home location, with at least 3 online virtual group mentoring sessions (totalling over 6 hours) and therefore receiving their attunements by distance, with e-mail and What's App support. See the video to find out more about the programme and see New Year New Moon New Vision on the harmony Website to find out your commitment.

  • Friday 22nd September, Ancient Egyptian Ritual of the Neteru of the Two Lands, Equinox @ 07:49 Saturday 23rd

    Friday 22nd September is the Ancient Egyptian Ritual of the Neteru of the Two Lands. This year it's the day before the Equinox. As the exact date of the Equinox moves, they don't always coincide but often do. Co-incidence? I doubt it, the ancients knew a thing or two about the seasons and nature.

    Map of Lower Egypt from WikipediaThe Two Lands, comprising of Upper & Lower Egypt, were presided over by the more successful Pharoahs. To the north was Lower Egypt where the Nile fans into the Nile Delta. To the south was Upper Egypt, stretching to Aswan.

    The terms Upper and Lower Egypt are derived from the unusual geography of the Nile, which unlike most rivers, flows from south to north. Its origins are in the highlands of East Africa and it ends with the Nile Delta which drains into the Mediterannean Sea.

    Double Crown of Egypt image from WikipediaIn Spiritual lore, Upper and Lower Egypt could be said to represent the higher and lower self of the human body, and as such would need to be integrated on an annual basis with the help of the Neteru (Deities or Angelic Beings).

    The unification of Upper and Lower Egypt occurred in about 3000 BC, but the pschent - or double crown, see Wikipedia image on the right - worn by the Pharoahs represented the combined regalia of both areas; the hedjet or White Crown for Upper Egypt and the deshret or Red Crown for Lower Egypt, each half representing sovereignty of one of the kingdoms.

    Established Ancient Egyptian tradition generally credits Menes (also known as Narmer), as the king who united Upper and Lower Egypt. On the Narmer Palette the king is depicted wearing the Red Crown in one scene and the White crown in another, and thereby showing his rule over both Lands.

    By keeping traditions, ancient communities in Egypt retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony.

    Solstice image licensed by DreamtimeSaturday 23rd September at 07:49 (Saturday morning) is the Pagan Celebration of the Autumn Equinox, marking the time of harvest festival and fulfilment of summer; since, in the Northern Hemisphere, from now on there will be more dark than light for the rest of the year. An equinox is an astronomical event when the plane of Earth's equator passes the center of the Sun. Equinoxes occur twice a year, around 21 March and 22/3 September.

    At this point in the year, the night and day lengths are exactly equal, so it's a time of balance and a good time for introspection, look for what is good and worthwhile to become seeds for next year.

    Aligning ourselves with the heavenly bodies is very good for harmony and wellbeing.

  • Halloween, 31st October 2017

    Shutterstock Pagan Wheel InageTuesday 31st October  traditionally marks the end of the harvest and the beginning of the Celtic and Pagan New Year. Samhain is Irish-Gaelic for 'the Summer's end', and is pronounced 'sow-in'. Samhain represents the death of the summer sun god, Lugh. This festival celebrates Nature's cycle of death and renewal.  This is traditionally known as Halloween. 

    Samhain is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals; along with Lughnasadh, Imbolc and Beltane. 

    In the Northern Hemisphere, Samhain heralds the beginning of Winter when the world starts to darken and the days are getting shorter; the 'dark half' of the year and the demise of the sun's uplifting influence.  The crone, personified as Cailleach - the Queen of the Winter - was reborn on every All Hallows Eve, returning to bring the Winter and protect animals through the coldest months. She turned to stone on Beltane Eve, Beltane being 1st May.

  • Monday 23rd September, Equinox

    An equinox is an astronomical event when the plane of Earth's equator passes the center of the Sun. Equinoxes occur twice a year, around 21st March and 22nd/23rd September. 

    The image on the right, by Przemyslaw Blueshade Idzkiewicz (from Wikipedia), shows the illumination of Earth by Sun on the day of equinox (vernal and autumnal). It is a view to eastern-hemisphere  showing  noon  in  Central European time zone (ignoring DST) on the day of equinox.

    At this point in the year, the night and day lengths are exactly equal, so it's a time of balance and a good time for introspection, look for what is good and worthwhile to become seeds for next year.

    Here in the UK, followers of the Druids, Pagans, Celtic and Gaelic traditions, as well as Wicca religion, gather at megalithic stone circles such as Stonehenge (Near Salisbury, Wiltshire) and Castlerigg (Keswick, Cumbria), to celebrate and watch the equinox sunrise.

  • Sunday 31st October, Samhain or Halloween & meditation

    Shutterstock Pagan Wheel InageSunday 31st October traditionally marks the end of the harvest and the beginning of the Celtic and Pagan New Year. Samhain is Irish-Gaelic for 'the Summer's end', and is pronounced 'sow-in'. 

    We are running a Samhain/Halloween special celebration TODAY 2-4pm UK time (GMT) and meditation with the Celtic Goddess Cerridwen to release what is no longer serving you in your life. Joanna is co-hosting the session with Sarah Dennis. Sarah is a sacred celebrant and has studied in Glastonbury as a Priestess of Avalon and the Goddess and she's the resident Crystal Healer with the London College of Psychic Studies.  Cost is £20 for the 2 hours or half price to our usual concession audience of RSE graduates and previous Moon course participants. Select 31st October from the drop down options at the Harmony ShopInterested parties who can't attend the live session can register a booking and a link to the recording will  be sent out. The Samhain energies continue through 1st November - Celtic New Year.

    Samhain represents the death of the summer sun god, Lugh. This festival celebrates Nature's cycle of death and renewal.  This is traditionally known as Halloween and is considered a time when the veil is thin between ours and other dimensions hence we can sense the presence of our ancestors more easily. 

    31 October Samhain HalloweenSamhain is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals; along with Lughnasadh, Imbolc and Beltane. 

    In the Northern Hemisphere, Samhain heralds the beginning of Winter when the world starts to darken and the days are getting shorter; the 'dark half' of the year and the demise of the sun's uplifting influence. 

    The crone, personified as Cailleach - the Queen of the Winter - was reborn on every All Hallows Eve, returning to bring the Winter and protect animals through the coldest months. She turned to stone on Beltane Eve, Beltane being 1st May.

    According to clairvoyant, channel, spiritual teacher and author Edwin Courtenay

    On Halloween (Samhain), the veil between the worlds is thin because the old Celtic year is ending and the new Celtic year about to begin. This day and night - not one thing or the other - is a luminal space used by the Spirits of the Dead to visit those they love who they have left behind.

    In the Witches circle a door is opened in the East and the dead invited to walk through and commune with the living. In ancient days, plates were laid at the table and filled with food for the dead (a tradition still followed by some) the plate placed outside at the end of the night for the phantoms to feast on. On this day candles are lit and the loved ones gone before are remembered, grieved and loved. On this night the Horned Lord of the Witches rides with his ghostly troupe rescuing the lost and Earth bound Souls seeking peace.

    The ghosts of Halloween are not Gouls and monsters but our relatives and friends, come not to terrify but to love. Welcome them then and share this night together and know that there is nothing to fear from the dead.

    Edwin also explains what is meant by the 'veil is thin':

    Midnight has always been known as the Witching Hour... but why?

    Midnight is a luminal space - not quite one day or the other but rather a space between, a betwixt between and therefore a space close to the Spirit world and the Gods! There are other luminal moments of course - dawn and dusk and also luminal spaces such as thresholds, archways, wells and lakes. Places that are natural gateways, that harbour unseen things (like the evil eye - which is why we lift brides over thresholds - so the evil eye doesn’t see them) and other powers!

    These moments are powerful then and the times when witches weave their spells - especially on Halloween night!!!

    Traditional festivals like this helped communities to feel connected, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives. Neo-Pagan Druids acknowledge that Celtic folklore has its roots in Ancient Egyptian philosophies.

    Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians, in the form of Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing, to bring balance and harmony. Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Level 1 - a new series of virtual interactive training modules  starts 10th November for three consecutive Wednesdays withKhemitology, followed immediately with Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness commencing 1st December.

  • Thursday 16th May, Pagan Festival of Lunantisidhe

    LunantisidheThursday 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.

  • Thursday 1st & Friday 2nd February, Celtic & Pagan Festival of Imbolc

    shutterstock 114601966 Pagan wheel

    Thursday 1st & Friday 2nd February is the Pagan Imbolc Ceremony, which is one of the four Great Celtic Festivals (between the Solstices and the Equinoxes), and which is a Wiccan, Gaelic and Druid Festival of Fertility and Growing Light. Imbolc (pronounced EE-molk) is an old Celtic Word and the celebration can also be known as Candlemas.

    The Pagan Wheel image was purchased from Shutterstock.

    Imbolc celebrationTomorrow night Sarah-Jane Dennis (Priestess of Avalon) and myself are offering an Imbolc Celebration event on Friday 2nd February, 7.30-9.30pm UK time (GMT), £20. Book at the Harmony Shop.

    Imbolc is sacred to the Goddess Brigid, Brigit or Bridie, the power of the new moon, the Spring of the year, the flowing sea, corn dollies and the Great Moon Mother - Patroness of Poetry Making and Healing. Brigid is a triple Goddess, so she can be honoured in all her aspects, she is associated with fire, fertility, midwifery and the young. 

    The Imbolc Festival marks the passing of Winter and the first signs of Spring, with the emergence of new leaves and early flowers such as the snowdrop and crocus, as well as being the transition point of the threefold Goddess energies from those of the Crone to the Maiden. 

    Imbolc is a Fire Festival and it is traditional, at sunset, to briefly light every light in the house. Or light candles in each toom to celebrate the return of the sun. If it's been snowing, take time to enjoy walking in the snow, draw an image of the sun into the snow and reflect on the sun's warmth.

    Traditional foods for Imbolc include anything dairy, including sour cream, as the Festival celebrated the calving season. Spicy and rich foods, such as curry or anything made with peppers, leeks, onion, chives and/or garlic are appropriate to celebrate the sun, together with mulled wine and anything containing raisins which also represent the sun.

    So fire and purification were an important part of the Imbolc festival with candles being lit to signify the increasing power of the Sun and the return of warmth over the forthcoming months and Holy wells were visited at Imbolc, and at the other Celtic festivals of Beltane and Lughnasa. All this focus on nurturing warmth and purification plus water to release emotions brings harmony and wellbeing into your life.

    It's also a good time to clear clutter and look at what you want to achieve this year and ask Brigid's help in making it happen. There's lots more about the wonders of Imbolc at Gylden Fellowship.

    Celebration of local customs, such as those at Imbolc, with other members of the Pagan Community was found to be therapeutic; bringing harmony and wellbeing into their lives.

  • Thursday 20th April @ 05:10 UK time is New Moon and a Hybrid Solar Eclipse

    Insta images inc moons 21

    Thursday 20th April @ 05:12 on Wednesday night/Thursday morning is New Moon and a very rare Hybrid Solar Eclipse. A hybrid solar eclipse is a one that transforms from annular to total and vice versa along its path, they only occur about once every decade. During this century, hybrid solar eclipses will account for only 7 out of 224 (3.1%) of all solar eclipses. The eclipse will reach its maximum at 05.17 BST (GMT/UT+1). Sadly, as best viewing is in the Southern Hemisphere, it won't be visible in the UK.

    Even if we can't see much (or anything at all from some parts of the globe) there will still be an effect energetically.  Eclipses can bring suppressed emotions up for examination, clearing and release. Events, which caused ill-feeling at the time, but which have been long forgotten can raise their heads for resolution.

    This hybrid solar eclipse, the first of 2023, is visible from the southern hemisphere, see Earthsky.com for details.

    During a partial solar eclipse, the Sun, Moon and Earth don't align in a straight line, and the Moon casts the outer part of its shadow (known as the penumbra), on Earth. From our perspective, it appears as if the Moon has taken a bite out of the Sun.

    The term eclipse magnitude, refers to the size of the eclipsed area. Occasionally, the Moon covers only a fraction of the Sun's disc. At other times a partial eclipse can look similar to a total eclipse. More about partial eclipses at timeanddate.com

    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.

    Any New Moon is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board. 

    Gardening by the moon has been practised for eons. It's not about planting at night, it's about being in harmony with the natural growth patterns of plants.
     
    The moon progresses through four ‘phases’ or ‘quarters’ , each of which lasts about 7 days. Starting with the New Moon (today), the moon waxes (grows larger) and more visible.
     
    There is a daily increase in light until the Full Moon is visible. After Full Moon, the light wanes (reduces) gradually back until New Moon, completing the lunar cycle. In the same way that the moon influences the rise and fall of the tides, it has gravitational impact on the moisture in plants (sap), the soil and water table. These effects are aligned with the lunar cycle. 
     
    For sowing and harvesting, we need to be in harmony with the flow of moisture as it is drawn up the plant into the stem and leaves, fruit and seeds. Or down into the root zone with the gravitational pull of the moon for root vegetables. New Moon is not a good time to plant in your garden.

    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.

  • Tuesday 30th April is Beltane Eve in Pagan Tradition

    Beltane 30th AprilTuesday 30th April is the Eve of Beltane; Pagan celebrations begin with people singing and dancing clockwise around the fire. The name 'Beltane' derives from the Celtic Deity 'Bel' (definition = 'the bright one') together with 'teine' – the Gaelic word for fire.

    The combined meaning is 'Goodly Fire' or 'Bright Fire', hence bonfires were lit to encourage the Sun to nurture the forthcoming harvest and to honour Bel ask for his protection of the local community.

    Bel seemingly required human effort before providing support so traditionally all community fires were extinguished and two Tein-eigen (translates as need-fire) bonfires were specially kindled for Beltane.

    Cattle were driven between the fires to purify them with the smoke and bring fertility. People jumped over the fire (not the huge ones I presume) to cleanse, purify and enhance fertility.  

    Couples pledged themselves to each other by jumping the fires together and to bless their union. After the celebrations, which ran from sunset 30th April to sunset on 1st May, the villagers took a bit of the Teineigen to start fresh fires in their home hearth.

    shutterstock 114601966 Pagan wheelBeltane is one of the four Celtic seasonal festivals; along with Lughnasadh, Samhain and Imbolc - as shown on the Pagan Wheel on the right, courtesy of Shutterstock (licence paid).

    Dew gathered at dawn from the grass is traditionally used in potions for luck and it is thought to be lucky to roll naked in the dew!!!  I remember collecting the dew at dawn for luck as an adolescent but I didn't try the rolling naked in the dew so can't testify to whether that works for anything other than risking (indecent) exposure.

    On Beltane itself, it's traditional to drink from a well before sunrise, then wash in the morning dew, adorn yourself with greenery, watch the sun come up, dance round the Maypole and otherwise abandon yourself to the season! Round Full Moon Cakes are eaten together with blackberry, elderberry, dandelion wine (or cider) being drunk. Visits are made to sacred springs where healing water is drunk. 

    There are always amazing annual Beltane and May Day celebrations in Glastonbury and a 4-day Jack in The Green Festival in Hastings culminating on the May Day Bank Holiday (the first Monday after 1st May, this year = Monday 6th May).

    By keeping traditions, Pagan 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.

  • Tuesday 31st October, Samhain or Halloween

    Shutterstock Pagan Wheel InageTuesday 31st October traditionally marks the end of the harvest and the beginning of the Celtic and Pagan New Year. Samhain is Irish-Gaelic for 'the Summer's end', and is pronounced 'sow-in'. 

    Samhain represents the death of the summer sun god, Lugh. This festival celebrates Nature's cycle of death and renewal.  This is traditionally known as Halloween and is considered a time when the veil is thin between ours and other dimensions hence we can sense the presence of our ancestors more easily. 

    31 October Samhain HalloweenSamhain is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals; along with Lughnasadh, Imbolc and Beltane. 

    In the Northern Hemisphere, Samhain heralds the beginning of Winter when the world starts to darken and the days are getting shorter; the 'dark half' of the year and the demise of the sun's uplifting influence. 

    The crone, personified as Cailleach - the Queen of the Winter - was reborn on every All Hallows Eve, returning to bring the Winter and protect animals through the coldest months. She turned to stone on Beltane Eve, Beltane being 1st May.

    According to clairvoyant, channel, spiritual teacher and author Edwin Courtenay

    On Halloween (Samhain), the veil between the worlds is thin because the old Celtic year is ending and the new Celtic year about to begin. This day and night - not one thing or the other - is a luminal space used by the Spirits of the Dead to visit those they love who they have left behind.

    In the Witches circle a door is opened in the East and the dead invited to walk through and commune with the living. In ancient days, plates were laid at the table and filled with food for the dead (a tradition still followed by some) the plate placed outside at the end of the night for the phantoms to feast on. On this day candles are lit and the loved ones gone before are remembered, grieved and loved. On this night the Horned Lord of the Witches rides with his ghostly troupe rescuing the lost and Earth bound Souls seeking peace.

    The ghosts of Halloween are not Gouls and monsters but our relatives and friends, come not to terrify but to love. Welcome them then and share this night together and know that there is nothing to fear from the dead.

    Edwin also explains what is meant by the 'veil is thin':

    Midnight has always been known as the Witching Hour... but why?

    Midnight is a luminal space - not quite one day or the other but rather a space between, a betwixt between and therefore a space close to the Spirit world and the Gods! There are other luminal moments of course - dawn and dusk and also luminal spaces such as thresholds, archways, wells and lakes. Places that are natural gateways, that harbour unseen things (like the evil eye - which is why we lift brides over thresholds - so the evil eye doesn’t see them) and other powers!

    These moments are powerful then and the times when witches weave their spells - especially on Halloween night!!!

    Traditional festivals like this helped communities to feel connected, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives. Neo-Pagan Druids acknowledge that Celtic folklore has its roots in Ancient Egyptian philosophies.

  • Wednesday 1st November, Samonios, All Saints Day & World Vegan Day

    01 Nov samoniasWednesday 1st November starts the first month of the Celtic Year, called Samonios - 'Seed Fall'; mirroring the death/rebirth cycle of Asar (Osiris). We are still in the enegy of Samhain/Halloween today.

    It is thought that two Roman festivals became incorporated with Samhain - 'Feralia', when the Romans commemorated the passing of the dead, and 'Pomona', when the Roman goddess of fruit and trees was honoured. The Halloween tradition of bobbing for apples is thought to derive from the ancient links with the Roman fruit goddess, Pomona, and a Druidical rite associated with water. 

    This is also All Saints Day in the Christian calendar.

    The Samonios text below, by Helen Benigni, were kindly taken with permission some years ago from the angelfire.com website.

    The month of SAMONIOS is a month of miraculous births beginning with the appearance of the twin stars of Castor and Pollux on the Eastern Horizon. These miraculously born twins, from an egg containing both mortal and immortal potential, bridge the gap between this world and the Otherworld with their appearance on the first quarter moon heralding the Holy Nights of Winter Solstice. Further into the month, a trio of stars including Rigel, Betelguese and Castor march across the sky to illiminate this Oenach of light and birth.

    Literally translated as "seed fall," SAMONIOS is the month when the light of the Dagda, the seed of his loins, penetrates the womb of the earth and creates life. This light is symbolized by the sunrise of the Winter Solstice penetrating the inner chambers of the sacred mounds of the Neolithic peoples. At Newgrange, the sacred mound of the Bru na Boinne, the light of the Winter Solstice shines through a roof-box of white quartz for seventeen minutes to dramatically illuminate the cruciform chamber of the passage tomb. Here, the stone-carved geometric motifs common to trance states of shamanic ecstasy amplify the light in order that the observer may experience the light of life bestowed by the solar deity.

    This solar alignment initiates the light half of the year. Mistletoe is hung as a symbol of the immortal love that the good father, Dagda brought to Boand, the goddess of the Bru na Boinne. Oengus, the son of their union and the Lord of the Sid mound, guards the entrance to the Otherworld and immortal life. 

    01 Nov World Vegan day1st November is also World Vegan Day.  In 1994, the event was established by Louise Wallis, then Chair of The Vegan Society, UK, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of coining the terms "vegan" and "veganism" and the founding of the organisation. November is nominated as World Vegan Month.

    Traditional festivals like this helped communities to feel connected, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives. Neo-Pagan Druids acknowledge that Celtic folklore has its roots in Ancient Egyptian philosophies.
