Arc of the Goddess – March

March madness… The month of March can be freezing cold and in some places still knee deep in snow but as the month progresses it starts to bring with it the promise of spring. March heralds the arrival of spring and the celebration of Ostara, the Spring Equinox and let’s hope it also heralds the

Arc of the Goddess – Fresh new February

February always feels like the start of the turning point, although it is not spring yet February sees the beginnings of new growth and even (hopefully) a few sunnier days.  And of course the beginning of February brings the festival of Imbolc which is traditionally sacred to the goddess Brighid.  This is the month where

Arc of the Goddess – January

January blues… January has always been for me, a bit of a damp squib month.  The festivities of the Yule season have all gone, the weather is usually dark, damp, cold and dreary and everyone is suffering from over eating and over spending.

December – Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose… Oh I LOVE this time of the year and I revert to being a complete child… It is an absolute excuse for me to go into total cheesy festive decorating mode and of course baking lots of goodies, writing cards and

The darkness of November… Now we are the end of autumn and heading into winter.  The last of the autumn leaves are falling from the trees and the smell of bonfires fills the evening air. The evenings are dark as are the mornings, time to start the process of withdrawing and entering inwards.  So I

Arc of the Goddess, October. My favourite time of the year and it isn’t just because October includes Samhain…honest!  I love the autumn, the crisp fresh air, the crunch of leaves under foot and the beautiful colours of the trees and fields.  Oh and of course sitting indoors on a dark evening, curtains closed, sofa,

Aug 6th, 2015 | By

August…Oh I’ve got a brand new combine harvester… August brings the first of the harvests and is a time when the earth and her bounty start to give us the rewards followed by seeds to begin the cycle again. The sun god enters his sage years but is not yet done for…he loses his strength

Jul 8th, 2015 | By

In the summertime when the weather is hot… July is the height of summer, flowers are blooming the skies are blue there’s not a cloud in the sky and hopefully it is warm. Spend as much time outside as you can, I like to eat my lunch out in the garden and have spent many

June is bursting out all over… June is a happy, bright and summery month…well hopefully because let’s face it you can never trust the weather.  But it brings a happy positive energy with it, the plants are all growing and Mother Earth is providing us with a bounty of fresh fruit and vegetables and all
