  • 9th - 17th August (peaking 11th - 13th) Perseid Meteor Showers

    perseid map

    Friday 9th August – Saturday 17th August may be able to see some Perseid meteors. The Perseids is one of the best meteor showers to observe, producing up to 60 meteors per hour at their peak. The shower's peak usually occurs on August 13th (predawn), this year it's worth chceking in the early hours of the 11th and 12th August when there may be less light pollution from the approaching Full Moon (15th).  However, you may be able to see some meteors any time between 17th July and 24th August. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Perseus. Look to the northeast after midnight. See diagram to the right and  earthsky.org website for more, from where the image has been taken.

    Sunday 11th – Tuesday 13th August are the peak dates for the Perseids Meteor Shower (see entry under 9th August). The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Perseus. Look to the northeast after midnight; with the recent quarter moon - weather permitting - viewing could be reasonable. See  earthsky.org  website for more.

    Zikiel croppedTo the left is an image of Zikiel, by Richard Rockwood, from Angela McGerr's Heart & Soul Angel Cards. These are now out of print, but we still have the last few signed copies available from  the Harmony Shop.

    Zikiel is the Guardian Angel of Comets and Meteors.  In the Heart & Soul Angel Card set, this is the card of Inspiration,inner wisdom and Oneness With All.

    Zikiel reminds us that our path can be traced through the stars, entwined with the galaxies and in the ethereal realms. By meditating and working with Zadkiel, we can journey back to the beginning of time and truly sense the original Oneness with All. We can also invoke Zikiel to help us to tap into pure inspiration from out of the blue.

    The following ritual is taken from Angela McGerr's An Angel For Every Day - now out of print and in short supply (a few signed copies available from  the Harmony Shop). 

    If you have a clear quartz, you can programme it with Zikiel's name and keep it with you to help capture any inspirational thoughts channelled from the heavens tonight and also to help your heart to make the right choices. 

    My daughters are now 24 and 23 (later this month) and one of their earliest precious memories is of lying outside on a mattress, covered with duvets, on a balmy summer's night in the south of France, looking out for meteors until the early hours.  It was my sister Fiona's idea and it was truly magical evening; we were rewarded with many gleaming tails across the dark sky from the Perseid Meteor Shower.

    In subsequent years, come August, the girls would often ask me if we could lie ouside on our sun bathing loungers, covered with blankets/duvets, often with a hot drink in hand, and cuddle up watching these wonderful meteors. Of course successful viewing is very dependent on the weather, cloud conditions and the proximity of the last or next Full Moon, but we are lucky in that our garden - whilst not free of Greater London light pollution - has afforded us many a memorable and spectacular occasion.  If you are able to go to a designated dark sky (Dartmooor, UK is one of the best in the world), it's well worth taking some warming provisions and rugs etc., so you can be comfortable for a couple of hours or so.

  • 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.

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!

  • Anna Perenna, Friday 15th March 2019

    Friday 15th March was the ancient celebration of Anna Perenna - Goddess of the Eternal Year in Roman tradition.  So that the circle could be completed, offerings were made to the Spirit of the Year.

    According to Roman mythology, Anna Perenna was Dido's sister who, after Dido's suicide, was driven from Carthage to Latium. She was carried off by Numicus (the God of a stream) having incurred the wrath of Aeneas's wife in Latium. Aeneas's servants follwed her tracks and discovered that she had metamorphosed into a water nymph.

    Eid Mar coinIn Roman tradition, 15th March is also the Ides of March, as well as a Festival to Jupiter. Shakespeare had a soothsayer warn Julius Caesar 'Beware the Ides of March' and reputedly he was indeed assassinated on 15th March 44 BC. 

    The illustration to the right (from the Wikipedia page for the Ides of March) shows a commemorative coin from Autumn of 42 BC, issued by Caesar's assassin Brutus, depicting the abbreviation EID MAR (Ides of March) under a Cap of Freedom between two daggers.

    Autumn view squareDecember in Britain is the month with the least hours of daylight, but sunlight hours increase from 21st onwards, after the Winter Solstice. The increased daylight - promising optimism - is celebrated as Yule, and here in the UK, Christmas Day on the 25th, which pre-Christianity, in Roman times, was celebrated as the birth date of Sol Invictus (Roman Solar Deity).

    Landscapes and gardens are skeletal now, except for the evergreens, looking charming when snow-covered and laced with spider's webs kissed by frost. Keep the shivers at bay with seasonal soups utilising Jerusalem artichokes, leeks, carrots, beetroot, parsnips, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, kale, potatoes and winter squash. Enjoy nutty snacks from chestnuts, hazelnuts and walnuts. Late fruiting apples, pears and quince also remain plentiful together with mushrooms and black truffles.

    The month of December was named after ''decem' meaning 10th in Latin, as November was the 10th month when the year started in March.To the Anglo-Saxons, December was called Ærra Gēolameaning “before Yule" or "First Yule". 

    During December, we can also look forward to the British Celtic Festival of Yule (Winter Solstice = 21st December) followed by the Christian Festival of Christmas (25th) which is also the Zoroastrian Celebration of Zartosht-no Diso and St Stephens Day/Boxing Day (26th) plus two annual Roman Festivals Bona Dea (3rd) and Saturnalia (17th), and the month culminates withNew Year's Eve(31st), celebrated as a two-day festival called Hogmanay in Scotland. We have Forest Bathing events on Saturday 4th (Newlands Corner, Guildford), Monday 6th (Horsell Common, Woking) and Saturday 11th (Harry Edwards, Shere). Our Mindful Chakra Alignment Course runs for three consecutive Wednesday evenings commencing 1st December (see listing below for details and link) and our Full Moon Meditation takes place 7.30-9.30pm (UK time)on Saturday 18th, with the Solstice Full Moon peaking the following morning at 04:36. Aligning with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, and our next Lunar Alignment Programme commences with the New Moon on 2nd January 2022.  We also have the Geminid Meteor Shower peaking 13th/14th.We have Forest Bathing and Harmony Healing vouchers available as Christmas gifts.

    01 Dec Mindful Alignment with your 11 chakras Axiatonal Awakening 2Wednesday 1st December is the start of Harmony Healing Virtual Module: Mindful Chakra Alignment and Unity Consciousness(£66),7.15pm - 9.30pm (UK time/GMT = UK & USA friendly evening hours), 2¼ hours for 3 consecutive weeks ending 15th December, worth ½ unit towards RSE Level 1. Held remotely on Zoom.  

    03 Dec Bona DeaFriday 3rd December is the Roman Festival of Bona Dea, this being a smaller festival than the one celebrated on 1st May but similarly for women only. 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 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.

    Important News about Newlands Corner. Newlands Corner, our beautiful ancient forest site in Guildford Surrey, have put up our site rental price so much that we don't know if we will be able to continue offering public sessions there. We had to cancel our September event as the venue hire cost wasn't going to be covered. So, if you want to join us Newlands Corner, please book in ASAP for our final  4th December session as it is unlikely to feature as a 2022 destination. We will be forced to cancel Newlands events one week before if numbers are low, so please don't leave it to a last-minute booking or you stand to be disappointed.

    04 Dec New MoonSaturday 4th December@ 07:43 is the New Moon, Supermoon and a total Solar Eclipse (only visible in Antartica but partially visible in South Africa and Namibia). More details at timeanddate.com. A solar eclipse happens whenever the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, hence partly or totally obscuring the Sun for anyone viewing from Earth. This eclipse will not be visible in London but will affect all of us energetically. 

    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 You Tube Page.

    The New Moon is great time to create Vision Boards. How about creating one for 2022?

    13 Dec Geminids 2Monday 13th - Tuesday 14th December is the peak of the Geminid Meteor Shower. The Geminids are considered by many to be the best annual meteor shower and are known for producing multicoloured meteors 65% being white, 26% yellow, and the remaining 9% blue, red and green.

    Rates typically peak at 100-120/hour; this high activity lasts for several hours. It is certainly possible to see 80-100 Geminids in a single hour, but only from a dark site! The Geminid Meteor Shower is expected to peak in activity on the night of December 13th-14th, although some meteors should be visible from December 7th – 21st. The radiant point for this shower will be in the constellation Gemini. Best viewing is usually to the east after midnight. The waxing Gibbous Moon approaching the Full Moon early on 19th December will hamper viewing due to light pollution. Go to timeanddate.com  for further information. 

    17 Dec SaturnaliaFriday 17th December is the Roman Festival of Saturnalia. This was the popular banquet commemorating the dedication of the temple of the god Saturn. It was marked by tomfoolery and reversal of social roles, in which slaves and masters ostensibly switched places. 

    The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn, in the Roman Forum, and a public feast, continual partying with private gift-giving, gambling and a celebratory atmosphere that reversed the usual Roman social norms with masters provided table service for their slaves. The poet Catullus referred to it as "the best of days."

    Saturn was an agricultural deity who, in Roman Mythology, was associated with the Golden Age, when humans enjoyed the spontaneous bounty of the earth without labour in a state of innocence. Further information, courtesy of Wikipedia.

    20 October Full Moon MeditationSaturday 18th Decemberis our Full Moon Unity Consciousness Meditation, 7.30-9.30pm UK time (GMT/UT). This is the night before Full Moon takes place at 08:58 on the 19th.

    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. Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal). This activity serves as a good taster of Joanna's work in general. For more details and to book, see Harmony Shop.

    21 Dec Wnter SolsticeTuesday 21st December is the Pagan Solstice @ 15:58. 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 Tuesday 21st June 2022 at 10:13.

    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. 

    25 Dec Xmas daySaturday 25th December is the Christian Festival of Christmas, commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ.

    This is also the Fasli Zoroastrian Calendar is Zartosht-no Diso, commemorating the anniversary of the death of the prophet Zarathustra. 

    26 Dec Boxing DaySunday 26th December is St Stephen’s Day in the Christian Calendar, also known as Boxing Day.

    Friday 31st December is New Year's Eve and Hogmanay in Scottish tradition.

    Many Scots had to work over Christmas because celebrations were virtually banned in Scotland for around 400 years, from the end of the 17th century to the 1950s.

    31 Dec Happy New YearThe Protestant Reformation led to the Presbyterian outlook, branding Christmas as a Popish or Catholic feast which was therefore prohibited.  As a result, their winter solstice celebrations took place at New Year when family and friends gathered for a party and exchange presents, especially for the children, which came to be called Hogmanay. Historians believe that the Vikings who, coming from even further north than the UK, paid strong attention to the passing of the shortest day and hence may have initiated the post-Solstice celebrations.  Image of fireworks over Edinburgh Castle by Chris Flexen.

    There is no definitive view on the origins of the word Hogmanay. Many Scottish words have derived from Flemish, so one popular view is that Hogmanay came from hoog min dag which means great love day, whereas the Scandinavian word Hoggo-nott described the feast preceding Yule (itself a Scandinavian word commonly used in Shetland where the Scandinavian influence was strongest).

    Alternatively, Hogmanay could source from the Anglo-Saxon, Haleg monath, Holy Month, or the Gaelic for new morning, oge maidne. Phonetically, a good candidate night be the similar sounding French expression Homme est né which means Man is born. Also, in France the last day of the year when gifts were exchanged was aguillaneuf, though specifically in Normandy presents given at the year-end were hoguignetes.

    In Scotland a similar practice to that in Normandy was noted, rather disapprovingly, by the Church.

    "It is ordinary among some Plebians in the South of Scotland, to go about from door to door upon New Year`s Eve, crying Hagmane." Scotch Presbyterian Eloquence, 1693.

    Common Scottish practices on 31st December, before midnight, involve a thorough cleaning of the house (including taking out the ashes from the coal fire) plus the superstition to clear all your debts. Immediately after midnight, the long-held tradition to sing Robert Burns's For Auld Lang Syne has now evolved into a popular international custom.

    Many areas of Scotland often developed their own local Hogmanay rituals such as the fireball swinging rituals in Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire, in northeast Scotland. Chicken wire structures - filled with old newspaper, sticks, rags, and other dry flammable material  - are attached to lengths of wire, chain or non-flammable rope. When the Old Town House bell marks the New Year, the balls are set alight and the celebrants set off along a heritage route, swinging the burning balls around their heads as they go. At the end of the ceremony, any fireballs that are still burning are cast into the harbour.

    01 Jan New Years DaySaturday 1st Januaryis New Year’s Day and is a Bank Holiday in the UK and time for New Year’s Resolutions!

    31 Dec Quadrantid MeteorsSaturday 1st – Wednesday 5th January (peaking on the 3rd, 4th January) is the Quadrantids Meteor Shower; visible from 1st – 5th January after midnight and peaking in the early hours of the 4th. With the New Moon on 2nd January, it could be a good year. Typically, 40 or so bright, blue and fast (25.5 miles per second) meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, some blazing more than halfway across the sky. A small percentage of them leave persistent dust trains. This shower usually has a very sharp peak, usually lasting only about an hour. 

    The particles that cause the Quadrantid meteor show originate from the asteroid 2003 EH1 an asteroid that is probably a piece broken off from an obsolete comet. Since the orbit of 2003 EH1 is highly inclined to the orbit of the Earth, the Earth passes through it very quickly. Thus, the Quadrantid meteor shower is an extremely short one, lasting only a few hours.  With the recent Full Moon on 30th December, there could be too much light pollution to see much.

    Autumn view squareOctober in Britain features the full splendour of autumn colours with an array of brown, red and golden yellow mixed with the remaining green as trees shed their leaves. Nature is truly remarkable; this process eliminates environmental toxins which have collected, and trees do it to protect themselves. In winter sunshine, water would continue to evaporate from the leaves, and should the ground water freeze, the tree's water supply would no longer be guaranteed. Hence the plant produces phytohormones and directs them to its leaf stalks. These hormones cause a corky layer to form, then the leaves fall off. This cork prevents pathogens such as fungi or bacteria from penetrating. Furtthermore, should it snow, the tree will not have to bear the additional weight of snow on the leaf surfaces.

    This month is the ideal time to harvest chestnuts, conkers and apples and on the allotments we have many seasonal vegetables including broccoli, leeks, turnips, potatoes, kale plus of course squashes including pumpkin. It's easy to see why apple bobbing and pumpkin carving became associated with Halloween, celebrated on the 31st. We also have two separate sets of Meteor Showers, the Draconids (peaks 8th/9th) and the Orionids (peaks 20th/21st).

    The month of October was named after 'octo' meaning 8th in Latin, as October was the 8th month when the year started in March.To the Anglo-Saxons, October was called Winterfylleth, or the “winter full moon,” because winter was said to begin on the first full moon in October.

    During October, we have a plethora of international festivals such as World Vegetarian Day (1st), World Mental Health Day (10th), World Food Day (16th), International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (17th) as well as Thanksgiving in Canada (11th). We can also look forward to the London Traditions Pearly King Harvest Festival (3rd) and October Plenty (usually a Sunday at the end of the month, but looks to be going online again this year), Christian Festival of St Francis of Assisi Day (4th), two annualEgyptian Festivals Going Forth of Isis (6th) & Isia (28th) and Roman October Horse (15th) annual commemorations,  plus of course the Pagan Festival of Samhain (better known as Halloween) on 31st. Sarah Jane's Women's Circle Moon Lodge is meeting on Friday 15th.  We have Forest Bathing events on Tuesday 12th (Woking), Thursday 14th (London SW20), Sunday 17th (Shere) and Saturday 30th (Guildford). Aligning with the moon cycle is very therapeutic, and our New Moon New Vision: Moon Alignment Course runs for a full lunar cycle from New Moon on 6th October to New Moon on 4th November. Our Full Moon Meditation takes place 7.30-9.30pm (UK time) on Wednesday 20thwith the Hunter Moon peaking earlier in the day at 15:57. 

    01 October World Vegetarian DayFriday 1st October is World Vegetarian Day.

    Established by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 and endorsed by the International Vegetarian Union in 1978, it is a day of celebration "to promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism." It brings awareness to the ethical, environmental, health and humanitarian benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle and hence is a time set aside to raise awareness of the positive effects of a vegetarian lifestyle on “humans, other animals and our shared earth.” See more details on the Awareness.com website.

    World Vegetarian Day marks the start of Vegetarian Awareness Month throughout October, which ends with World Vegan Day on 1st November, marking the end of that month of celebration. Apparently, Vegetarian Awareness Month.  

    Pearly KingSunday 3rd October, being the first Sunday in this month, is traditionally the Pearly King Harvest Festival at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, offering a spectacular display of historical London. More at ProjectBritain Website.

    The Pearly Kings & Queens are a popular Cockney tradition dating from the 19th century. It started when a young boy covered a suit with pearly buttons to raise money for the poor at fairs and charity events. Other boroughs followed suit and got their own Pearly King or Queen. The Pearly King image is the author's property. The model is unknown but willingly posed for the photograph; there is no commercial gain from the author's use of this photograph.

    04 October Francis of Assisi DayMonday 4th October is the Feast of Francis of Assisi in the Christian Calendar, so it is appropriate that it is also World Animal Day since St Francis is the Patron Saint of Animals and the Environment. It is a popular date for animals to be blessed.

    St Francis, who founded the Catholic Church’s Franciscan order, lived in Italy between approximately 1181 and 1226. He is remembered for his love for animals and nature and his generosity to the poor, as well as well as his willingness to minister to the lepers.

    St Francis was cannonised (pronounced a Saint), shortly after his death (in 1228) by Pope Gregory IX. The Pope also laid the foundation stone for the UNESCO World Heritage site, Basilica of St Francis d'Assisi, Italy.

    21 Sep Violet Flame promoTuesday 5th Octoberis the final part of Harmony Healing Virtual Workshop: Violet Flame of Ament (Level 1), 7.15pm - 9.30pm (UK time/GMT+1 = UK & USA friendly evening hours), £88. See Violet Flame of Amenti page for details and to book. Missed sessions are recorded so late applicants can be accommodated. 3 x 2.25 hour evening course, worth 1 unit towards the RSE Level 1. Held remotely on Zoom.

    06 October New MoonWednesday 6th October @ 12:06 is the  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 You Tube Page.

    06 October LCAP

    Wednesday 6th October is the start of New Moon New Vision; Lunar Cycle Alignment Programme.

    This lunar cycle applies the transformational properties of spiritual alchemy to help you feel rejuvenated and purposeful about the rest of the year, via the creation of a Vision Board. 

    It's a special one lunar month empowerment and attunement programme combining the solar & lunar balancing with various ceremonies throughout the month. The next Moon Alignment Programme begins with the New Moon on the 6th October and culminates with the New Moon on 4th November. This takes in the Pagan Festival of Samhain (31st October, also known as Halloween).

    07 October Going forth of IsisThursday 7th October, though some sources say Sunday 10th October, is Going Forth of Isis (Aset) in Egyptian Tradition. Apparently, her heart is pleased on this day because 'the heritage is granted to her son Horus (Heru)'.
     

    On this special day, a specially selected team of Priests and/or Priestesses would commence a procession to take their most treasured image or statue of Aset (Isis) to another temple, with many planned stops en route. At each stop a sacred rite would be performed by the Priests/Priestesses and often divinations would be offered. When the final temple destination was reached, the image or statue would be placed in an honoured location and a joyful fesival celebration would ensue.

    Informative posters of Isis, as per the sample shown here, are by Jacqui Taliesin El Masry from Alkhemi.co.uk. Laminated versions of this and other Egyptian Posters by Jacqui, are available to purchase from the Harmony Shop.

    08 October Draconid MeteorsFriday 8th & Saturday 9th October, is the Draconids Meteor Shower. The radiant point for the Draconid meteor shower almost coincides with the head of the constellation Draco the Dragon in the northern sky. That’s why the Draconids are best viewed from the Northern Hemisphere, and, surprisingly in the early evening soon after dusk. 

    Draco has been known to spew forth many hundreds of meteors in a single hour. 

    In 2021, the recent New Moon (on the 6th) should provide relatively moon-free viewing for a few hours after nightfall which is the best viewing time this year. See Earthsky Website or timeandate.com for more. 

    10 October World Mental Health DaySunday 10th October is World Mental Health Day. Initially it was as an annual activity held by the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH), but World Mental Health Day has been observed since 10th October 1992.

    It's now officially commemorated every year on 10th October and this year's theme is 'mental health in an unequal world'. This year, in collaboration with ITN Productions, they have created a film entitled Forward Together for Mental Health- there's a trailer on the mentalhealth-uk.org website, where you can also register to be notified when the film is released.

    11 October Canadian Thanksgiving 2Monday 11th October is Thanksgiving Day in Canada, sometimes called Canadian Thanksgiving to distinguish it from the American holiday which is the 4th Thursday in November (this year it's Thursday 25th November).

    Canadian Thanksgiving occurs on the second Monday in October, is an annual Canadian holiday, celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year.

    16 October World Food DaySaturday 16th October is World Food Day; a worldwide event designed to increase awareness, understanding and informed, year-around action to alleviate hunger.

    This day, declared by the UN General Assembly, aims to heighten public awareness of world food problems and strengthen solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty. The theme for World Food Day 2021 is 'Our Actions are our Future.'

    The theme is to highlight the fact that the food we choose and the way we consume it, affects our health and that of our planet. Our actions have impact on the way agri-food systems work. So we all need to be part of the change.

    Each year, on 16th OctoberConcern Worldwide joins organisations around the world in commemorating World Food Day, marking the day the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) was founded in 1945. Concern Worldwide, whose motto is tackling hunger, transforming lives highlight some incredibly worthy causes on their website.

    17 October International Day for Eradication of PovertySunday 17th October is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. 

    The observance of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty can be traced back to 17th October 1987, when over a hundred thousand people gathered at the Trocadéro in Paris. This was the location where the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was signed in 1948, to honour the victims of extreme poverty, violence and hunger. They proclaimed that poverty is a violation of human rights and affirmed the need to come together to ensure that these rights are respected. These convictions are inscribed in a commemorative stone unveiled on this day.

    Since then, every year on 17th October, people of all backgrounds, beliefs and social origins have gathered to renew their commitment and show their solidarity with the poor.

    20 October Hunter Full MoonWednesday 20th October is the Hunter Full Moon @ 15:57.

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

    20 October Full Moon MeditationWednesday 20th Octoberis our Full Moon Unity Consciousness Meditation, 7.30-9.30pm UK time. 

    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. Participants all receive a deeply healing experience. Cost to participate is £20 by online BACS payment (small admin fee added for PayPal). This activity serves as a good taster of Joanna's work in general. For more details and to book, see Harmony Shop.

    20 October Orionid MeteorsWednesday 20th - Thursday 21st October is the peak of the Orionids which is the most prolific meteor shower associated with Halley's Comet and lasts from 15th until 29th October.  

    The Orionids are so-called because they appear to come from, the constellation Orion. In some years, meteors may occur at rates of 50-70 per hour. 

    This year, on the night of the Full Moon it's not likely to be good viewing. In 2021, the annual Orionid meteor shower is expected to rain down the greatest number of meteors before dawn on October 21st, perhaps as many as 20 meteors per hour. Sadly the light pollution from the Hunter's Full Moon will obscure viewing.

    But the hours between midnight and dawn on the mornings of October 20th and 22nd may offer a decent sprinkling of meteors as well, and you might see some anytime in October if you have a dark sky for viewing. See also EarthSky website where you will also find more details about the event. 

    28 October IsiaThursday 28th October is the Egyptian celebration of Isia, marking the 7 days that Aset (Isis) spent searching for the body parts of Asar (Osiris) following his death and dismemberment by his brother Set. 

    This culminates on Wednesday 3rd November with Hilaria when she resurrected him by re-membering him; no doubt contributing to the definition of our word remember meaning to recall someone from memory.

    Informative laminated posters of Isis by Jacqui Taliesin El Masry (from Alkhemi.co.uk) and other Egyptian Posters by Jacqui, are available to purchase from the Harmony Shop.

    30 October Final NC SessionSaturday 30th October10.30am - 12.30pm, Forest Bathing+ at Newlands Corner, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in the Surrey Hills, £25 (+ Paypal fee = £26.25). This is a 2 hour Forest Bathing+ session which will take place in all weathers except 30+mph winds.  Booking link. 

    Important News about Newlands Corner. Newlands Corner, our beautiful ancient forest site in Guildford Surrey, have put up our site rental price so much that we don't know if we will be able to continue offering public sessions there. We had to cancel our September event as the venue hire cost wasn't going to be covered. So, if you want to join us Newlands Corner, please book in ASAP for one of our pre-Christmas dates as it is unlikely to feature as a 2022 destination. We will be forced to cancel Newlands events one week before if numbers are low, so please don't leave it to a last-minute booking or you stand to be disappointed.   
     
    31 October BST to GMTSunday 31st October is the end of the Summer Daylight Saving Time in 2021, so the UK clocks go back an hour at 01.00 hrs (Saturday night).
     
    31 October Samhain HalloweenSunday 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 Hallow's Eve, returning to bring the Winter and protect animals through the coldest months. She turned to stone on Beltane Eve, Beltane being 1st May. 

    This year 31st is the final Sunday in October so this could be the chosen date for the annual October Plenty Festival traditionally held in Southwark on London Bankside. If it takes place at all in 2021 it will be an online event. In the past, this autumn harvest celebration would begin on the Bankside, by Shakespeare's Globe and would feature a mix of ancient seasonal customs and theatre with contemporary festivity, joining with historic Borough Market, Southwark.  The procession would normally feature a Berry Man - an autumn version of the Green Man but covered in fruits and foliage, plus a Corne Queene effigy comprised of wheat, barley and grain with apples and root vegetables supplied from the Borough Market.

  • Egyptian Burning of the Lamps ceremony, 20th June 2018

    Isis (Auset) ImageWednesday 20th June is the Egyptian Festival of the Burning of the Lamps which was held at Sais.

    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.

  • Festival of the Three Marys, 24th May 2017

    Wednesday 24th May is the Romani and Christian Festival of the Three Marys at Sainte-Maries-de-la-Mar, on the south coast of France.  Here landed Mary Magdalene, Mary Jacob (the sister of Mother Mary known in the Catholic faith as Our Lady) and Mary Salome (mother of James and John). A local Chieftain, Sara the Kali, had a vision of their arrival and by spreading her cloak over the rough sea ensured their safe arrival.

  • Friday 14th May, Panegyric of Isis (Aset) Egyptian Celebration & Secondary 555 numerology

    Panegyric of IsisFriday 14th May is the Panegyric of Isis (Aset) Egyptian Celebration, when Asar (Osiris) was found and Aset (Isis) duly celebrated. Offerings of bread, wine and milk are made and Auset is traditionally praised for her gifts. 

    It is a time for celebrating successful quests in life. From Isadorus, Hymn III:

    O Isis, the Great, God's mother, Lady of Philae,
    God's Wife, God's Adorer, and God's Hand,
    God's mother and Great Royal Spouse,
    Adornment and Lady of the Ornaments of the Palace.

    Lady and desire of the Green Fields,
    Nursling who fills the palace with her beauty,
    Fragrance of the palace, mistress of joy,
    Who completes her course in the Divine Place.

    Rain-cloud that makes green the fields when it descends,
    Maiden, sweet of love, Lady of Upper and Lower Egypt,
    Who issues orders among the divine Ennead,
    According to whose command one rules.

    Princess, great of praise, lady of charm,
    Whose face enjoys the trickling of fresh myrrh.

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

    555 14 MayFriday 14th May is also a secondary 555 in numerology.  2021 is a '5' year in numerology (2+0+2+1 = 5), May is the 5th month and with the 5th May being the 5th day of the month, it was a primary 555 as digits for all aspects of the month each add up to 5.

    Friday 14th (today) and Sunday 23rd May, carry secondary 555 energy as the digits of those dates also add up to 5. Subscribers to the Harmony Healing e-Newsletters will receive reminders on the day. See above entry for 5th May for more on the numerology of 5 and the full Harmony Healing Blog entry for 5th May for further details on the meaning of triple numbers in numerology and the interpretation of 555 specifically.  Special 555 meditation available from Harmony Shop.  

    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.

  • Friday 19th March, Roman Festival of Quinquatrus & Women's Moon Lodge

    Quinquatrus 19th MarchFriday 19th March is the Roman Festival of Quinquatrus (also known as Quinquatria), the name being derived from it happening the 5th day after the Ides of March. 

    This was a Festival dedicated to Minerva when women were accustomed to consult fortune-tellers and diviners.

    Both Festus and Varro indicate that the Quinquatrus was only celebrated for one day and hence ancient Roman religious calendars assign only one day to the festival.

    Ovid, however, states that it was a five day celebration, hence the name. Apparently, on the first day no blood was shed, but on the last four there were gladiator contests.

    At one time, celebrations took place 19th - 23rd of March, orginally an Etruscan festival to celebrate spring, rites of women, rebirthing and the Spring Equinox.

    I can't help wondering if it was a development from the Egyptian Pelusia Festival, see 20th March entry.

    By keeping traditions, 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. 

    Moon Lodge eventFriday 19th March,as well as being Quinquatrus, is also is the Moon Lodge Healing Women's Circle, 7-8.30pm GMT, £11 + Eventbrite fee = £11.27. This is a virtual event on Zoom.

    Run by Harmony Healing collaborator Sarah Jane Dennis, this is a sacred circle for women in the community to come together as we once did, to connect in a safe and loving space to the energies of the moon and our own cycles.

    Talk, support, heal, celebrate, and hold each other. Book at Eventbrite. Contact Sarah-Jane via her website at crystalhealingbysarahjane.co.uk or email .

    Aligning ourselves with other members of the community through mutual celebration and support is very therapeutic and is excellent for bringing harmony and wellbeing into our lives.

    Harmony Healing activities are aimed at bringing harmony and wellbeing into your life. We have had two new interactive mentoring courses series start this month with Mindful Chakra Balancing & Unity Consciousness on Tuesday evenings starting 11th March and Essene Angelology on Thursday evenings from 16th March. Late starts can be accommodated. These modules are £66 each.

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

    Pagan image of SamoniosFriday 1st November starts the first month of the Celtic Year, called Samonios - 'Seed Fall'; mirroring the death/rebirth cycle of Asar (Osiris).

    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 image above and text below, by Helen Benigni, are kindly taken with permission 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 shortly after the third quarter of the moon, 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. 

    Friday 1st 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.

  • Friday 23rd April - St George's Day & Shakespeare's Birthday

    220px Flag of England.svgFriday 23rd April is St George’s Day in England, celebrating St George, England's patron saint. The anniversary of his death, which is on April 23rd, is seen as England's national day.

    According to legend, he was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess.  The flag of England is the red Cross of St. George, and this is widely displayed as a symbol of national identity.

    Surprisingly, 23rd April is not a Bank Holiday.

    William ShakepeareWilliam Shakespeare - long revered as Britain's, if not the world's, best known author and playwright, also died on 23rd April, but in 1616, in Stratford-upon-Avon, making this the 405th Anniversary.

    He was Baptised in Stratford on the 26th April 1564 and his birth date is not known but it is traditionally observed on 23rd April, Saint George's Day, indicating that he would have died on his birthday. 

    This date, which can be traced back to an 18th-century scholar's mistake, has proved appealing to biographers, it being considered somewhat poetic that he died on his 42nd birthday. 

    Shakespeare has 37 plays and 154 sonnets credited to him, but we don't really know whether he actually wrote them, or was just a merchant, land owner and occasional actor who either brokered the plays or was prepared to be acknowledged as the author to protect anonymity of those truly responsible.

    Certainly writing plays could be dangerous as any plot seen to reflect a political plot not appreciated by the Queen/King could be interpreted as treason.

    Many scholars argue, quite reasonably, that proof of Shakespeare’s authorship is largely circumstantial and sketchy at best; certainly he was better known in Stratford as a businessman [one documented view is that he brokered the plays] and not a playwright.  

    Celebratiing national and cultural heroes is a great way of uniting communities, bringing harmony into their lives.

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

    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 Monday 26th April, at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time = GMT+1), and costs £20 (+ £2 Paypal fee).

    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.

  • Friday 24th May, Festival of the Three Marys

    Friday 24th May is the Romani and Christian Festival of the Three Marys at Sainte-Maries-de-la-Mar, on the south coast of France.  Here landed Mary Magdalene, Mary Jacob (the sister of Mother Mary known in the Catholic faith as Our Lady) and Mary Salome (mother of James and John). A local Chieftain, Sara the Kali, had a vision of their arrival and by spreading her cloak over the rough sea ensured their safe arrival.

    map of the camargueSaine-Maries-de-la-Mar (Saint Marys of the Sea) is the capital of the Camargue (Provençal Occitan Camarga) in the south of France. Interestingly, it is noted on the Wikipedia page,from where this map was taken [courtesy of ChrisO (Public domain), via Wikimedia Commons], that the village was noted as "Ra" in the 4th century AD by the Roman geographer Rufus Festus Avienus. 

    Ra being the Ancient Egyptian Deity also known as the Sun God, this could reinforce the idea that Mary Magdalene was actually of Egyptian origin (possibly from the southern area of Nubia, where the native people are very dark skinned) and could also have been the revered Black Madonna.

  • Going Forth of Aset (Isis), Saturday 7th October 2017

    isis with sampleSaturday 7th October, though some sources say Monday 10th October, is Going Forth of Isis (Aset) in Egyptian Tradition.  Apparently, her heart is pleased on this day because 'the heritage is granted to her son Horus (Heru)'.

    On this special day, a specially selected team of Priests and/or Priestesses would commence a procession to take their most treasured image or statue of Aset (Isis) to another temple, with many planned stops en route. At each stop a sacred rite would be performed by the Priests/Priestesses and often divinations would be offered.  When the final temple destination was reached, the image or staue would be placed in an honoured location and a joyful fesival celebration would ensue.

    Informative posters of Isis, as per the sample shown here, are by Jacqui Taliesin El Masri fromAlkhemi.co.uk. Laminated versions of this and other Egyptian Posters by Jacqui, are available to purchase from the Harmony Shop.

  • 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.
