New Moon in Capricorn-Take it Slow

The Moon Waxes New….

Temple of the Cosmic Spheres


January 5.2019
8:28p.m. (EST)

Partial Solar Eclipse
8:41p.m. (EST)

We stand in the shadow of a New Moon in earthy astrological Capricorn, fired in the backdraft of Uranus stationing direct on January 2nd. New Moons flow abundantly in the potential of what can be. We have the additional support of the Solar Month cloaked in the strength of Capricorn; the energies of Mother Moon and Father Sun holding the power and cardinal energy of scaling the heights as you plunge into the depths (the Sea-Goat of Capricorn).

Uranus is a planet of electrical impulse. It is the higher amplification of Mercury’s communicative style. Mercury aligns as the phone’s switchboard and Uranus is the motherboard of a computer that is instantaneous and lightning speed in relay. When this planet stations retrograde, the build up of neuro-electric energy is palpable. People become short tempered and irritable as information pulses through at speeds…

A New Year’s Tarot Spread!

The New Year’s almost here and it’s time to see what’s in the Cards. Enjoy!

The Magickal Pen

Happy New Year! Every year I sit quietly and create a Tarot spread to bring more clarity to my year. 2019 heralds a number “3” year (2+0+1+9=12/1+2=3) and the potential for collaboration flowing between my spiritual and mundane nature to create a third (3) product that is the manifestation of what I wish to birth this year.

This tarot spread makes use of the principles of the Hermetic Tree of Life. However, you do not need to be versed in Qabalistic study to use this spread. Honoring the 12 month cycles of a year, the spread uses 12 cards in draw.

How To:
Set the mood and find a quiet space in which to lay out your spread. I like to light a white pillar candle, lay my cards out on a velvety purple or blue cloth and usually have a quartz, amethyst or celestite crystal on the cloth.

Take…

19-Days of Illuminated Darkness: Bonus Post #4

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice! My story is complete and Part Two is ready to take you into the woods…

Part Two:

….Flickering light shone through the trees and the smell of fragrant wood burning wafted through the air…..

Lily walked slowly, the snow crunching under foot. She hoped not to frighten away the woodland creatures and did not want to make her presence known to whoever may be responsible for the lights ahead. As she walked along the path that she knew would lead her to where she could see the light, she noticed that the flickering of light seemed to be pulsing in resonance to her breath. Excited by this thought, she began to breathe more rapidly, and with each inhalation and exhalation the light flickered matching its rhythm.

Just to set the mood and take you into the snowy woods, please enjoy a Solstice Story in Two Parts…

Part One

Lily pulled on her warmest coat and snow boots, ready for an adventure outside. Snow had been falling for several hours and she loved the quiet that descended when the ground was blanketed in fluffy white snow. Even the coziness and warmth of her cottage could not entice her to stay inside and miss the chance of walking at sunset through the woods that bordered her home.

She wrapped a wool scarf snuggly around her neck and pulled on the winter cap that she had just finished knitting and had been hoping for a chance to wear it sooner rather than later. Impatient to leave, she tugged at her mittens and took one quick glance at the dimly lit room and spun back around to push the wooden door open…

19-Days of Illuminated Darkness: Bonus Post#2


If you’ve been counting down, we are on Day Twelve of 19-Days of Illuminated Darkness. Today’s offering is an audio pathworking entitled A Point of Clarity. In keeping with this theme, please enjoy the poem below….

Snow silently fell
As the wheel it
Turned round.

Darkness cycled its course
The Light lay at hand
Brilliant flames of blue lept
High from sacred inner domain.

Triple flames rise high
And Mother’s sight offers
The solace of quickening spark.
Bring forth the healing Light
Nurture and fiercely protect
The ember that burns brightly.

Gentle bud and tender leaf
Reach high towards
Sun lit sky.
Balance and rest
Bring greenery to life.

Desire flows hotly and
Urges pushes us on.
Light weaves its magnetic
Spell of attraction
Drawing us towards
Lovers sun-kissed embrace.

Solstice light burns
Full and bright.
Apex of potential
Achieved and
Time for turning within
Now close at hand.

Sacrifice and offering
Of harvest Autumn’s
Golds, reds and greens.
Light rests in space of
Gathering and the stores
For winter richly filled.

Place of rest and integration
Balance of human and land
Inner fires carefully tended
As harvest feeds the light
Of soul’s new found worth.

Ancestor and spirit called
Forth by Inner Lamp.
Time to heed the
Hermit’s call as
Flame burns hidden
Deeply within.

The cycle moves forward
And light and dark move
Interwoven hand and hand.
Snow silently falls as the
Great Wheel does turn
Round and round.

Bonus Post 1: 19-Days of Illuminated Darkness

Seeking our Animal Allies

As we build in our anticipation for welcoming the Light of the Solstice, an opportunity to connect to those energies and beings that stand ready to support our work shines in the remnants of the darkened forest, seas and air.

I would like to share with you a pathworking written a few years ago and one that I have had requested many times. Join me on a journey through the gates of the elemental realms and the radiance of the animal guides held within each awaiting your call of resonance.

I like to explore these gifts at this time of the year and use it as a time to offer up gratitude for those animal guides that remain with me and those who are ready to aid and assist as I step in the Solstice Light of a soon to be New Year. Enjoy!
