The Matriarch and Ritualist-she who keeps the shrine of our lives

In Spring, everything is fertile and the energy is to nurture new growth, feed it and begin to wake up from the winter's sleep. We stretch and move again. Test the water. It is in this phase of the menstrual cycle we will find the energy to begin projects, to develop ideas and plan ahead. The crescent moon above us shows us the way, her light growing each night but still some aspects shrouded in darkness, in mystery.



Lunar Wisdom: The Energies and Dynamics of Oak

Lunar Wisdom: The Energies and Dynamics of Oak

Closing my eyes, I settle into the safety of my own energy field, heart breathing and connecting with the energy of the Sacred Oak Tree. When I look with my magical eye at the Oak in spring, I am filled with this rising sense of anticipation; movement up and out. Rhythmically, like waves pulsing up from the roots and into the trunk, the next wave reaching higher than the last. The tide coming in. The buds at the tips of the branches beginning to swell. Not rushing, but moving forward even so.
