  • 24th June, Midsummer's Day in British Tradition & Fors Fortuna in Roman Tradition

    24th June Mid Summers DayMonday 24th June is Midsummers Day and was considered magical in Cornwall and Ireland, when there was feasting, fires, songs, and dances. Bonfires were kindled on high hills to commemorate the high point of the year.

    Traditionally, the veil is thin between the dimensions housing the living and the dead at this time, hence its setting for Shakepeare's Play a Midsummer Night's Dream.

    June 24th was designated as a feast celebration called St John's Day in the Christian Calendar, dedicated to the marytr St John The Baptist. The observance begins the night before as St John's Eve.  It's also commemorated in Freemasonry.

    However, Midsummer's Day celebrations long predates Christianity, and has existed under different names and traditions globally.

    24th June is also the Roman Festival of Fors Fortuna. Fors is an ancient Roman Goddess of prosperity, good luck, and divine blessings. Her name means "She Who Brings", from the Latin verb fero, synonymous with abundance and success.  This seems to have merged with Fortuna, probably originally a Goddess of fertility, into the Goddess called Fors Fortuna, who was acknowledged as sometimes being fickle or wanton and representing Fortune as Goddess of luck or chance. 

    She was especially worshipped by slaves and commoners, as the Goddess who could bring about rags-to-riches transformations; with at least two dedicated temples in Rome being founded by former slaves in gratitude for their changed luck. It also looks to have been the origin of the phrase Wheel of Fortune.

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

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

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

    During June, as well as the Summer Solstice (20th this year) and our own traditional British Festivals including Midsummer's Eve (24th), we have a couple of international events – World Environment Day (3rd), World Ocean Day (8th) and Asteroid Day (30th). We can look forward to a sprinkling of Egyptian (16th and 20th), Chinese (10th) and Roman (24th) celebrations plus the Bootid Meteor Shower (peaking 27th). We have our onlineGuided Full Moon Meditation on Friday 21st (it may be in person!) and our public Surrey Forest Bathing event on Saturday 15the a a Solstce event on Friday 21st.

    5th June alternative World Environment DayWednesday 5th June is World Environment Day,which has been celebrated annually since 1974. Over the years, the day has focused on such issues as acid rain, oceans, water, and green cities.

    ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    21st June Summer SolsticeThursday 20th June at 21:50 UK is the Pagan Celebration of the Solstice, the moment when the sun enters Cancer. In the Northern Hemisphere, this is viewed as the triumph of light, the ecstatic culmination of the sun, yet the start of growing darkness.

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

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

    In 2024, the best displays might be after dusk on 27th June as the shower is expected to reach peak activity at around 22: 00 UK time on 27th. Full Moon 21st June, means there could be some light pollution but it could be a reasonable year for viewing, weather permittting. 

    More at in-the-sky.org, including a map of the radiant point, which is is circumpolar, which means it is always above the horizon and the shower will be active throughout the night.

    May CF is readyMay is a month when our Pagan heritage breaks through into parochial folklore. 1st May is Beltane, also known as May Day, with the UK Bank Holiday being the first Monday of the month. Beltane a Pagan Festival still celebrated in parishes across the country featuring elaborate traditions involving May Poles, floral-dressed girls bedecked with flower garlands, Morris Dancers, Green Man imagery, hobby horses etc. We usher in the promise of sunshine and summer as we welcome green shoots and abundant blossom everywhere, not least the Mayflower (Hawthorn) associated with the old adage, ne'er cast a clout till May be out (which I always assumed meant the month itself)...

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

    During May, as well as our own British Traditional Pagan Festivals (1st, 4th, 16th, 29th) plus Mental Health Awareness Week (13th-19th) and we can look forward to Roman (1st, 9th & 15th), Egyptian (14th) & Romani/French (24th) celebrations. Skywatchers can enjoy the Aquariid Meteors peaking on the 5th May. Our Full Moon Online Guided Meditation is 7.30-9.30pm UK time on Thursday 23rd May.

    We have Surrey Forest Bathing events with Bluebells at Harry Edwards on Saturday 4th May (for a group of up to 10 people) and Sunday 19th May. We can organise other dates subject to availability of the site.

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

    Festivals frequently on the early May Bank Holiday in the UK (the first Monday on/after 1st May), when many towns and villages offering May Day celebrations.

    Jack in the Green procession, Hastings, 2022

    Jack in the Green Festival is held in Hastings, with four days of festivities around the May Day weekend, this year Friday 3rd - Monday 6th May. ​​​​​Since its revival in the 1980s the festival has become synonymous with the town of Hastings and is now one of its largest events. T

    Over the long weekend there is morris dancing around the town, a traditional ceilidh and a sunrise ceremony to welcome in the dawn of summer on Monday 1st May. Bank holiday Monday is the highlight as the town turns green. A grand procession leads the giant foliage-covered Jack through the Old Town and up to the West Hill, where he is eventually 'slain' and the spirit of summer is released! Image of the jack in the Green on the street parade, when we visited in 2022.

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

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

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

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

    Sham El Nassim 5th AprilMonday 6th May,in Egypt, is the ancient festival of Sham El Nassim (literally meaning "smelling of the breeze") which dates back to Pharaonic times (about 2700 BC) although it is celebrated on the Coptic Easter Monday, generally a week after our Easter Monday, but this year over a month later.

    It's not seen as a religious festival as it's a National Holiday for both Egyptian Christians and Muslims.

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

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

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

Going for a walk in your neighbourhood, putting on your favourite music and dancing around the living room, chair exercises when you’re watching television – it all counts!

    Some of the scientifically proven benefits of spending time in woodland include reduced stress levels, stronger immune system response, and a stabilised cortisol cycle.  Join us for this wonderfully nurturing session on the final day of Mental Health Awareness Week.

    This session which will take place in all weathers except high winds or electrical storms. Book via Harmony Healing shop. Email  to go on our forest bathing mailing list.

  • Friday 15th March, Roman Festival of Anna Perenna & Ides of March

    Anna Perenina 15th MarchFriday 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. 

    Commoners celebrated with drinking, picnics and enthusiastic revelry.

    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 followed her tracks and discovered that she had metamorphosed into a water nymph.

    Festival of Jupiter 15th marchIn 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.

  • Friday 15th September, New Moon @ 02:35 (Thursday night/Friday morning) - time for abundance ritual

    7 Sep New MoonFriday 15th September (Thursday night/Frirday morning) @ 02:35 is the New Moon.

    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.  

    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.

  • Friday 24th June, 666 numerology, Midsummer's Day in British Tradition & Fors Fortuna in Roman Tradition

    666 numerology 26th JuneFriday 24th June is secondary 666 in numerology.  2022 is a '6' year in numerology (2+0+2+2 = 6), June is the 6th month and with the 6th June being the 6th day of the month, it was a primary 666 as digits for all aspects of the month each add up to 6.

    Wednesday 15th and Friday 24th June (today) carry secondary 666 energy as the digits of those dates also add up to 6. Subscribers to the Harmony Healing e-Newsletters will receive reminders on the day. 

    See earlier Blog entry for 6th June for more on the numerology of 6 and the full Harmony Healing Blog entry for 6th June for further details on the meaning of triple numbers in numerology and the interpretation of 666 specifically.

    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. 

    24th June Mid Summers DayFriday 24th June is Midsummers Day and was considered magical in Cornwall and Ireland, when there was feasting, fires, songs, and dances. Bonfires were kindled on high hills to commemorate the high point of the year.

    Traditionally, the veil is thin between the dimensions housing the living and the dead at this time, hence its setting for Shakepeare's Play a Midsummer Night's Dream.

    June 24th was designated as a feast celebration called St John's Day in the Christian Calendar, dedicated to the marytr St John The Baptist. The observance begins the night before as St John's Eve.  It's also commemorated in Freemasonry.

    However, Midsummer's Day celebrations long predates Christianity, and has existed under different names and traditions globally.

    24th June is also the Roman Festival of Fors Fortuna. Fors is an ancient Roman Goddess of prosperity, good luck, and divine blessings. Her name means "She Who Brings", from the Latin verb fero, synonymous with abundance and success.  This seems to have merged with Fortuna, probably originally a Goddess of fertility, into the Goddess called Fors Fortuna, who was acknowledged as sometimes being fickle or wanton and representing Fortune as Goddess of luck or chance. 

    She was especially worshipped by slaves and commoners, as the Goddess who could bring about rags-to-riches transformations; with at least two dedicated temples in Rome being founded by former slaves in gratitude for their changed luck. It also looks to have been the origin of the phrase Wheel of Fortune.

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

    She was especially worshipped by slaves and commoners, as the Goddess who could bring about rags-to-riches transformations; with at least two dedicated temples in Rome being founded by former slaves in gratitude for their changed luck. It also looks to have been the origin of the phrase Wheel of Fortune.

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

  • Monday 3rd June, New Moon at 11.02

    Moon Scarletts shot square

    Monday 3rd June is the Dark Moon @ 11.02.  

    This New Moon Abundance ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon.

    See the YouTube Video Instructions

    It is a fabulous day for creating a personal or corporate Vision Board for the rest of 2019 to create new goals and release old ones.

    For a list of Joanna's forthcoming Harmony Healing events, see this recent Harmony Healing Event Update.

  • Saturday 12th/Sunday 13th August = Egyptian Day of the Light of Aset (Isis), Roman Festival of Diana & Japanese Festival of Obon

    12 August Day of the Light of IsisSaturday 12th August is the Day of the Light of Aset (Isis).

    On this day Aset (Isis) is celebrated with all forms of light including sun worship, during the day and candles at night. 

    There was also a Nile festival named variously as Jabr El-Khalig, Wafa El-Nil or Fath El-Khalig (European scholars refer to it as the Marriage of the Nile), a nocturnal illuminated celebration involving a clay statue Arousat El-Nil (the Bride of the Nile) which was deposited in the river.

    Interesting that it is very close to the date for the Roman Festival of Diana, which no doubt was a development from the Egyptian Festival.

    13 August Festival of Diana framedSunday 13th August, in Roman tradition, was the Festival of Diana, being the date upon which King Servius Tullius dedicated her shrine on the Aventine Hill in Rome in the mid-sixth century BCE. 

    Diana was the hunting goddess, associated with wild animals and woodlands. 

    She later became a moon goddess, supplanting Luna; and the moon was an emblem of chastity. 

    Oak groves were especially sacred to her.

    She was praised in poetry for her strength, athletic grace, purity, distinct beauty, and hunting skill. 

    Despite her virginal status, Diana was also a Goddess of Fertility.

    13 15 August Chinese Festival of ObonSunday 13th - Tuesday 15th August is Obon (also known as Bon); a Buddhist festival to honour dead loved ones.

    Celebrated through the lighting of bonfires, sacred meals, paper lanterns and dancing.

    See more atjapan-guide.comInterestingly, there are some parallels between the Ancient Egyptian Day of the Light and the modern communities in Japan celebrating Obon through lanterns and bonfires thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives. 

    By keeping traditions, ancient communities in Egypt & Rome retained a sense of harmony and connection.

  • Saturday 14th October @ 18:55 is New Moon & annular solar eclipse

    14 Oct New Moon & Annular eclipse image

    Saturday 14th October @ 18:55 is New Moon and an annular solar eclipse which will cross North, Central, and South America. It will be visible in parts of the United States, Mexico, and many countries in South and Central America. More information at timeanddate.com.

    A solar eclipse takes place when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, hence totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth.

    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.  

    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.

  • Saturday 6th May is the Coronation of King Charles III in London.

    King Charles III Coronation logoSaturday 6th May is the Coronation of King Charles III in London.

    On the morning of the 6th May, The King’s Procession will travel from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey in the Diamond Jubilee State Coach. Created for Queen Elizabeth II in 2012 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Her late Majesty’s reign, the coach has only ever been used by the Sovereign, occasionally accompanied by the consort or a visiting Head of State.  The Coronation will commence at 11am UK time.

    Following the Coronation Ceremony, the return procession from Westminster Abbey to Buckingham Palace will be much larger in scale and will use The Gold State Coach. This coach was commissioned in 1760 for use by King George III, to travel to the State Opening of Parliament in 1762; it was last seen during the Pageant of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in June 2022. This coach, which has been utilised at every Coronation since that of William IV in 1831, weighs four tonnes, will be drawn by eight Windsor Greys at walking pace. For more information see royal.uk 

    The event will affect the London leylines, particularly the Coronation Line. According to author Chris Street, the Coronation Line is the most important leyline in London.  Chris focuses on the part of the line which runs from St Georges Hill in Weybridge, Whiteley Village (Hersham), Waynflete Tower Esher, (apparently through or very close to my house in Walton-on-Thames), through the site of the King's Stone in Kingston-upon-Thames, (originally in All Saint's Church, where 7 Saxon Kings were crowned), also taking in Westminster Abbey, St Margaret's (Westminster), Big Ben, the Millenium Eye (South Bank), the Oxo Tower, St Paul's Cathedral, Moorgate Station, Mount Arnolds Circus, ending in Chigwell Row, Essex.

    Coronation ChairUK Monarchs are still traditionally 'endorsed' by the land hence the inclusion of the Stone of Scone(pronounced Scoon) underneath the Coronation Chair; this is the metaphor of the story of King Arthur and the Sword. By withdrawing the sword, King Arthur was endorsed by the land as the rightful Monarch. The Stone of Scone was taken from Scone (near Perth, Scotland) and placed under Edward Longshanks (Edward I of England) in 1296 and is seen as highly significant, see Wikipedia for details of the 1950 attempt to return the stone to Scotland. For details on the London leylines, I recommend London Leylines; Pathways of Enlightenment by Christopher Street.

  • Sunday 15th October, Roman Festival of October Horse

    1024px Tombstone depicting 2-horse chariot by Johann Jaritz / CC BY-SA 3.0 AT (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/at/deed.en)Sunday 15th October is the Roman celebration of October Horse being the Ides of October. 

    In ancient Rome, the October Horse (Equus October in latin) was an animal sacrifice to Mars carried out on 15th October, coinciding with the end of the military and agricultural campaigning season.

    Chariot races (bigae) were held in the  Campus Martius, the area of Rome dedicated to Mars.  At he end, the right-hand horse of the winning team was transfixed by a spear, then sacrificed. Thank goodness it no longer takes place.

    The October Horse is the only example of horse sacrifice in Roman tradition. However, horse sacrifice took place elsewhere in the ancient world, such as the Vedic ashvamedha and an Irish ritual described by Giraldus Cambrensis, both are connected to kingship.

    Although the ritual battle for possession of the head probably dates from the early period when Rome was a kingdom, October Horse's association with war and agriculture is characteristic of the Republic. The involvement of Mars in various equestrian festivals also reflects initiation and rebirth ritual. 

    Traditional and religious festivals like this helped Roman communities to feel connected, bringing balance and harmony into people's lives.

  • Sunday 20th February, whether written as 20-2-22 or 20-02-2022 lots of 2 numerology

    2 2 22 1Sunday 20th February, we have another energy portal; today's date is numerologically significant as it carries multiple frequencies of the number 2, whether written as 20.02.2022 or 20.2.22.

    We have three days this month where the only (no zero) digit is two: Wednesday 2nd February 2022, Sunday 20th February 2022, Tuesday 22nd February 2022. Some numerologists even included Friday 11th February 2022 in the sequence, as the two 1s in 11 can be added up to a 2.

    This series of dates when the only non-zero digit is 2 started in 2000 and happened again in 2002.  After 2022, it won't happen again until 2222, so not in our lifetimes.

    The dates increase in intensity as we progress through, offering an opportunity to work through emotions and express what may have been voluntarily suppressed in the throat (or deeper in the body) or even release emotions involuntarily repressed due to trauma connected with it.

    In numerology, the number two is said to represent Duality, Division, Polarity, Choice, Gestation, Cooperation, Service, Harmony, Support, Diplomacy, Patience, Psychic Intuition, Partnership, Mediation (seeing both sides of the coin), Comparison, Receptiveness, Helping, Collecting, Reproduction, Balancer of Opposites, Subconscious Memory, Positive and Negative.

    Being a multiple representation of the number two, this February date has an additional meaning in angelic numerology where 222 and beyond (2222 etc.) are about transformation and change. There is a real opportunity to wish for global diplomacy. If you seek to transcend, transform, and reach unique levels in your life, these dates are highly auspicious.

    We invite you to participate (wherever you are) in our meditation at 2.22 pm your local time at which time we will be focussing on the spread of harmony, love and diplomacy, with the release of karma based on war and hatred.

    Aligning ourselves to aspects of nature, such as 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. My next lunar cycle study course is Friday 1st April - Saturday 30th April.

    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 1A new next interactive training course series started with Khemitology on Thursday 17th February (missed sessions can be caught up as they are recorded, so late registrations are accepted) and Violet Flame of Amenti startson Wednesday 23rd February, followed by Mindful Chakras starting 10th March and Essene Angelology starting 16th March.

  • Sunday 28th April, Roman Festival of Floralia

    Floralia 28th AprilSunday 28th April was the Roman fertility festival of flowers and crops called Floralia, that later developed into a celebration of sexuality, and may have influenced the subsequent celebrations for Beltane and May Day. Or it could have been the other way around...

    According to Pliny (circa 240 BCE), celebrations were to solicit protection from the Goddess Flora,associated with flowers, blossoming plants and fertility.

    The festival lasted for six days and incorporated Ludi Florae, the "Games of Flora". The revelry was much enjoyed by Plebeian members of Roman society and seems to have involved actresses performing naked as well as other racy behaviour. Brightly coloured clothes were worn (if any!), races and shows were performed.

    Symbols of fertility such as deer and hares were let loose in the Circus Maximus to honour the Goddess as protector of fields and gardens (but not wild animals or woods) and, colourful garments were worn, rater than the customary white, during the festivities, some of which were nocturnal. Chickpeas (another symbol of fertility, also known as garbanzo beans) also were thrown to the Circus audience.

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

  • Sunday 4th April, Roman Festival of Magna Mater with parallels to Ancient Egyptian beliefs

    Magna Mater 4th AprilSunday 4th April is Magna Mater (the Great Mother) in the Ancient Roman calendar, the festival of Cybele, Phrygian Great Earth Mother. 

    Her priests took on female identities and clothing to commemorate her lover (or in some sources her son) Attis, who, following a castration, died of the wounds but was subsequently resurrected.

    Phrygia was a kingdom in what is now Asian Turkey, then part of Anatolia, centred on the Sangarios River. After its conquest, it became an important region within a succession of great empires.

    The cult of Magna Mater is arguably the oldest religion of all, with stone-age sculptures featuring this mother-goddess, and a 6000-year-old idol found in Çatalhöyük, depicting her as a seated woman flanked by two leopards. This is the form in which She came to be venerated as Cybele in Phrygia.

    The worship of this Goddess evolved over the millennia, but She remained a symbol of the powerful female forces in the universe. Many different interpretations developed, and various religious factions have interacted.

    Not much is known about Her worship in ancient times, but the cult involving Her incarnation as Cybele, in ancient Phrygia, later evolved into the cult of Magna Mater in Rome.

    The legend tells of a small child who was left die in the wildness, as a victim of the big cats which roamed the area.  However, instead of killing Her the lions and panthers nurtured her, allowing Her to develop into an intelligent, headstrong and beautiful woman.

    Perhaps She was a child mage who was later deified. She was said to have invented pipes and drums, as well as magickal medicines which She used to heal sick children and other creatures in the Phrygian vicinity.

    She befriended not only the local animals and people, but also the satyrs and other supernatural beings.

    According to one myth, She fell in love with prince Attis, but their love-story has a tragic twist; the intense Divine love of Cybele was overwhelming for the mortal prince, who went insane, castrated himself and died. Cybele, subsequently driven mad by grief, roamed around to sound of pipes and drums seeking Her lost love. In some other versions of the story, Attis was Her son but he succumbed to the same grisly fate.

    The links between this story and the cult of Auset/Aset/Isis/Inanna/Ishtar/Asherah are very apparent, and these cults influenced each other heavily. Attis was identified with Dumuzi, Tammuz, Ausar/Wzr (Osirus) and other dead and resurrected gods.

    There are also obvious parallels with the story of Sekhmet (Khemitian lioness Goddess) and Het-Hert (Hathor), the alter-ego of Sekhmet, whose worship merged with that of Auset/Aset (Isis) in various periods of Egyptian history.  And similarly, the Essene Angel Camael, Guardian of Mars and Tuesdays, who is linked with the She Leopard.

    In around 200 BCE, the holy black rock relic of the Goddess was moved from Her cult centre in the Phrygian city of Pessinos, to a new centre in Rome, where Her following flourished.

    Seemingly, once in Rome, Cybele was merged with the Greek Goddess Rhea, and re-identified as Magna Mater, the Great Mother. Men, called Galli, who had castrated themselves in front of Her image, became Her Priests but most of the followers were women.

    The cult plummeted into a somewhat depraved and ecstatic affair with only castrated men and women being allowed to attend the principal celebrations of the goddess, which quickly became associated with wild orgies. It was only protected from prosecution due to the protection of influential people.

    The faction became led by the female priestesses and the Archigalli, the high priest of the subordinate Galli; the latter being responsible for most of the dance, divination and healing of the cult.

    The worshippers gradually fragmented into fraternities, most notably the Dendrophori ("Tree-bearers") and Cannophori ("Reed-bearers"), with the liturgy of the cult being Greek.

    Members of these fraternities enjoyed a degree of social influence and elevated status, gathering important followers. The ceremonies generally commemorated the deeds of Magna Mater and Her love for Attis; who represented the fertility and germination of the land. By his castration and death, the land was infused with new life. Again, much like the Auset (Isis)/ Auar/Wzr (Osirus) religion.

    Many plays, known as ludi, were performed featuring carnivals with elaborate banquets and enthusiastic comedic performances.

    One of the prime annual festivals was Megalesia, 4th-10th April. At the peak of the celebrations a taurobolium was performed, where a bull was castrated and sacrificed, and new initiates were baptised in its blood. Sadly, another parallel with the association of Asar/Wzr (Osirus) with the Bull Cult and Serapeum (where bull remains were mummified) and a possible connection with the later development of the European Bull Fights, which I really hope will soon be ended.

    Caves, mountains and natural springs were sacred to Magna Mater, and Her temples were often built close to them. Women sought help from the Goddess, who favoured mothers and children, by sleeping in the temple. Midwifes were affiliated with the cult, and several of the priests were venerated as healers. Whereas the priestesses were more involved with Her tantric aspects, celebrating Her mysteries in secret. Little detail is known about them, other than that they were exclusively women. Eventually the cult vanished along with most other mystery beliefs of antiquity.

    It seems another major festival was celebrated the 25th March to commemorate the castration and death of Attis. The Cannophori carried and Idol of Attis together with reeds and stalks to the temple. Once again, the taurobolium was performed, this time with the genitals of the bull being thrown into a cave (or well) consecrated to Magna Mater. After three days of grief and sorrow for Attis, the carnival returned with the Day of Joy, known as Hilaria, when Attis was resurrected, and fertility of the land was re-instated thanks to the power of Magna Mater.

    Fascinatingly, this strongly resembles an Khemitian ceremony, thought to convert to October/November in our current calendar. Hilaria,usually connected to 3rd Novemberis also the name of the culmination of the Egyptian Festival of Isiaon the 28th October, when Isis (Aset) resurrected Osiris (Asar) by re-membering him; no doubt contributing to the definition of our word remember meaning to recall someone from memory. Co-incidence?  I don’t think so …

  • Sunday 8th August @ 14:50 is Lunasa New Moon & Lion's Gate

    8th August New MoonSunday 8th August@ 14:50 is Lunasa New Moon & Lion's Gate.  Whilst it wasn't the plan originally, I am now offering an 8:8 Lion's Gate Meditation at 7.30-9.30pm (UK time) on the 8th. This session will be specially themed on the energy portal between Egypt and the UK, angelic connections, plus of course, being the Lion's Gate, it will have a feline twist to it too. Book at the Harmony Shop (it's under Full Moon meditations although this is a New Moon).

    The New Moon Abundance Ritual should be carried out within 24 hours after the New Moon. 

    It needs to be after the New Moon because the moon should be waxing (getting bigger again) to carry the manifestation energy. 

    There are video instructions on my Facebook Page or You Tube Page.

    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.  My next lunar cycle study course is Wednesday 6th October - Thursday 4th November.

    8:8 Lions Gate from Angela McGerrs Angel Quest of the Heart

    Sunday 8th August is The Lion's Gate. August 8th (8:8 in numerology, being the 8th day of the 8th month) has always been experienced as the Lion's Gate doorway opening up a time portal to Khemitian (Ancient Egyptian) encodings situated between the Sphinx and the Great Pyramid of Giza.  The portal lasts 26th July to 12th August, but peaks every year on the 8th August.

    The number 8, being the infinity symbol on its side, represents the infinite forever conscious part of our soul, higher realms of consciousness and our infinite journey. The number 8 is also connected with abundance and strength making 8:8 a good time to clear the way and charge our energies.

    It is said to be an energetic doorway, which activates through the Solar Lion into the etheric and the Hall of Records (Akasha) and is associated with the marriage of matter and anti-matter, where polarities meet and merge. 

    Encrypted at sacred sites all over the world, but headquartered at Giza Egypt, these long-established data programmes, communicate with our own inner crystalline codes held in our DNA. 

    By tuning in and connecting with these codings we may be able to access a portal to ancient truths and wisdoms resulting in an accelerated spiritual awakening. 

    8 August Lions GateThe Lion's Gate is not only about numerology and astrology (being in the Lion shaped zodiac of Leo), it's also connected to the rising of Sirius, Sopdet to the Egyptians, sometimes referred to as our spiritual sun. It was believed to be the gateway to heaven and the home of higher frequency beings with advanced wisdom. The rising of Sirius coincided with the Nile floods, bringing abundance and wellbeing to the ancient civilisation. More at foreverconscious.com.

The book has been out of print for some years but we still have a few remaining unused copies at £40 each (plus postage and packing), signed by Angela, see Harmony Shop for details or Angela's books we have available.

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