Dark moon, shadow of Mama Earth

“Each thing creeps back into its own nature with the shelter of the dark. Darkness is the ancient womb. Night-time is womb-time. We come out of the night into the day. All creativity awakens at this primal threshold where light and darkness test and bless each other. You only discover balance in your life when…

On the Practice of Making Offerings. Disseminating Moon.

Lunar Imbolc to traditional Imbolc, 2020

Happiest mid-Winter, friends. It is lunar Imbolc and we are blanketed both by the sweet velvet dark right now of mama Luna’s balsamic, or dark phase and mama Nature’s hibernation season of Winter.  Balsamic or dark moon is the final stage of the moon’s 8 phases.  It is the metaphoric PMS of the month, when…
