Imbolc is a time of renewal and rebirth as the Goddess springs forth from deep within the earth where She has rested since Samhain. We see the physical form of this in our gardens – as the daffodils and crocus begin to sprout and bloom (in some parts of the world, anyway), we are secure…

Weekly Round-Up of Web Links

Today is astrological Samhain. As a cross-quarter holiday, it is most appropriately observed at the mid-point between Autumnal Equinox and Winter Solstice.

Grief

If you’ve taken any of my classes, you may be familiar with the idea that different parts of the body correspond to specific processes we do through.

Blessed Solstice

I have been remiss at making blog posts this month.  It has been an introspective time for me. As soon as the weather begins to turn and cool, and the seasons in Southern California are offset from most of the rest of the country by about 2 months, I go inward. This year, it has…

I won’t be doing a public New Moon Ceremony this weekend. My dear friends, who were going to host, had their schedule shifted by the early arrival of their new son. Additionally, Samhain took more out of me than I anticipated, so I’ll be honoring the Dark Moon privately. This doesn’t mean I can’t still…

As we approach the autumnal thinning of the veil, the Universe asks us to take stock, to get rid of the old, and to reinvent ourselves if necessary. If we don’t do it consciously, the Universe may handle the details, which is not usually preferable. Sometimes, of course, regardless of how consciously we work our…
