September, and then October: Ancestors, Grief, and Stillness

I feel like we’re in wrap up and catch up energies currently. I’m sure part of it is the fact that we’re coming up on October, which is a grief month for me, so my own personal energy is more sluggish. Not to mention everything that’s going on in the world. You’ll remember, a few…

The Cross Quarter in the beginning of February

The beginning of February (2/4 this year) is one of the cross-quarters (the midpoint between a solstice and equinox) of the year. The two in May and November mark the thinning of the veil; some people know them as Beltaine (or May Day) and Samhain (or Halloween, or Dio De los Muertos, or All Saints…

Empower Your Calendar

Today is Astrological Beltane

Beltane is a cross-quarter celebration, meaning it’s halfway between an Equinox and a Solstice (the other cross-quarters are Samhain, Imbolc, and Lughnasadh or Lammas). As such, it is marked by astrological features rather than calendrical ones. People note its passing on the calendar because it’s easier for most people to think that way, but Beltane…

The Transformational Energy of the Equinox at the New Moon/Eclipse

At 2:36am Thursday night into Friday morning (Pacific time) there will be a full solar eclipse. Of course, we won’t see it on the west coast of the United States (or anywhere in the US), because it will be nighttime. That does not mean we won’t be affected by the energy. That moment in time,…
