Brigid’s Full Moon

In honor of tonight’s full moon, and its alliance with last new moon, so Imbolc, Brigid, and the Virgin archetype overall, I’ve included some of the tidbits different solitary women’s mysteries members have shared from their own practices since then! Invocation, for Imbolc Teach me the way of the woods Oh wise one, teach me…

Lunar Imbolc 2022. We round the last dark corner

Monday into Tuesday evening is the lunar celebration of mid-winter. Wednesday is the traditional, Brigid’s day as my tradition has come to life for me in past year’s, Imbolc or Candlemas in other terms. Lunar Imbolc is signified on the Mystery Path by the crescent moon. This is entryway time, we welcome Virgin moon, this…

Shadow Work and Devotion. At Lunar Imbolc.

Devotion. It’s a wrought word, full with personal associations, and so I write it tenderly, for any and all that have been injured by traditions that forced or coerced dogma and rigidity, those direct or indirect punches to the developing, authentic soul. I know about those hits, personally, both from family and culture. I was…

Happy Traditional to Lunar Imbolc: Letting the Tide move you.

Happy traditional Imbolc, friends. I woke up today with a mist in my heart, the kind only satiated by the reliable rhythm languages, the silences and flurries of Mama Earth. It felt like longing, and when I leaned into the feeling I saw myself on a drive around the Tall Pines, this Place where I…

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…

A reminder of the powerful medicines of Winter–of Stillness, of Deep Restful Rejuvenation, of time…

Imbolc Tide

“If Candlemas be fair and bright, Come, winter, have another flight; If Candlemas brings clouds and rain, Go winter, and come not again.” Credit to my friend Jack, original author unknown. I don’t know about that gopher critter, but here on the midatlantic seaboard, it was clouds and rain, so I for one am banking…

Lunar Imbolc

Lunar Imbolc comes early this year, overnight! It is the New Moon in Aquarius, and is a tide you began to feel when the moon entered her last quarter or wane towards the dark moon, which happened Tuesday. This is the first seed or sap rising moon, when the subtle momentum of life force starts…

New Moon: Imbolc-tide on the earth path & in Laguna Canyon!

In every place I’ve ever lived I’ve made habit of going out walking.  The funniest walk habit that just pops to mind is in Easton and wild crafting out of people’s manicured or otherwise front lawns.  I got sick I guess from chemicals once.  Here in Laguna Canyon if I go out walking that can…
