An August Full Moon of Blindness and Light

 

Esoterically speaking, the full moon that falls on Sunday, close to the mid-point of the day in the UK, is symbolised by Virgo: the Virgo celebration is the one moon in the year which, more than any other, is about motherhood, about Gaia and about the Divine Feminine.

Mercury Retrograde Playing the Lion

 

It is no coincidence that the retrograde Mercury which began last week is governed esoterically by Leo, the sign of individuality, of power, and of truth, at a time when our world is in confusion as to whether it wishes to be governed by the Fish or the Water Bearer, illusion or reality, ego or inclusiveness.

A June Full Moon – a Harbinger of Light

The moon is becoming full as I write, and the sky is filled with light even in the middle of this warm June night.

An Easter Trinity

 

Esoterically speaking, the Easter Full Moon is fixed by its association with the Vernal Equinox and the sign of Aries – it is known too as the Aries Full Moon, and this year it falls on 31st March, which also happens to be the first day of Passover.

A Winter Spring Equinox

 

Tomorrow is a special day as the planet celebrates her total balance in light with the advent of the Vernal Equinox, a day welcomed by many in the northern hemisphere as the harbinger of warmth, sunshine and rebirth. This year, unusually, the icy fingers of winter grip my world and that of many others still, reminding us to take nothing for granted particularly where nature is concerned. Surprise is the keyword in these unpredictable times.

The Coronation, and the Seventh Ray

 

The Coronation, shown on the BBC and elsewhere last night, was filled with unspoken reference to the Seventh Ray, and ancient spiritual rites, and it gave me great pleasure over and above it being a fascinating documentary on a great ceremony and the Crown Jewels.
