Cross Quarter, Full Taurus Moon + Eclipse

06.11.2022 in moon&sky

Greeting the Cross Quarter, Taurus Moon Full and total Lunar Eclipse


remember, release, root, reclaim, transform


Cross Quarter days mark the change of a season: for this one, here in the North, the start of winter; in the South, the beginning of Summer. This cross-quarter day marks the point half way between Equinox and Solstice. At this time of year in the North it is Samhain; in the South, Beltane. While these sacred times now have fixed dates by tradition (Oct 31/Nov1/2), the actual cross-quarter this year is November 7 (exact @0236pst).


In the North at Samhain it is a time to honour endings; a time of gratitude. The energy calls us to immerse in the deepening dark, and transform what has been into sustenance for the future. In the South at Beltane we draw on this sustenance and the increasing Light to flourish anew. It is a time to choose what we want to amplify and bring into form.


Wherever we are, and whatever our journeys may be, we are called to seek alignment with the natural rhythms of Earth and Cosmos. Time to tune to the Sacred. To Earth, Air, Fire,Water and Spirit; to their practical gifts and their abundant wisdom. To honour all that is offered, and to wonder at All that is hidden and revealed within. It is a time to remember and a time to celebrate the fertility of Life and land.


The Cross Quarter energy of beginnings/endings, change and shift holds and builds in potency as a full ‘Blood’ Moon and a total lunar eclipse occurs the following day (Nov 8: Moon Full exact @0302pdt; eclipse 0002-0556; max @0259 and the last ttl lunar eclipse until 2025). Moon full is a time of illumination, clarity, culmination, and appreciation. Always a time when emotions and intuition are heightened; more so with Sun in Scorpio and the eclipse (Earth between Moon and Sun). The energy may feel even more intense with other Earth-Sky configurations at this time (eg fixed T-Square, Mars-R in Gem (choices & slow action), Mars-Jup-Nep, Uranus-Moon, etc). Time to both root and flow.


Moon in Taurus, anchored in physical/material reality, does bring a stabilizing, calming influence. She calls us to reconnect to our earthy selves; to our relationship to the physical world; and to simple, in-matter pleasures. We are asked to attune to sense-reality, deeply ground, and be wholly here, fully in-body.


On the other hand, Sun in Scorpio (Mercury & Venus too) flows in the mystical realms and wants to delve into the mystery; to explore and fully embrace the cycle of life, death and rebirth. Scorpio calls us to find what is buried; clear, cleanse, shed or transform what no longer serves; and to be reborn fully empowered to be all we can Be.


When Taurus and Scorpio meet, there is a stirring of the simple and the complex; the basic and the exotic; the tangible and the intangible. Their wisdoms are complementary. Both seek to create a nurturing, empowered quality of life. Together they evoke a kind of creation magick, walking with sure feet (Taurus) into new ways of Being (Scorpio) with comfort, beauty and a deep sense of self-worth and self-love. It’s time to weave together the wisdom of both. Time to bridge the physical and the spiritual; the seen and the unseen. And time to savour each moment.


The Blood Moon Eclipse (Nov8 0002-0556 pst) brings transformative energy that can shift us to higher states of consciousness. Blood Moon eclipses also tend to bring to the surface whatever may need to be cleared. Like Scorpio, they call us to cleanse, shed or otherwise do away with all that no longer serves. It is a time to transform and create more space for what we truly value. Ultimately, the Blood Moon Eclipse in Taurus is about reclaiming our power, personally, and in the world.


Time to release, release, release whatever disempowers. Time to realign and connect deeply with sacred source. Time to tune to the ancient wisdom within us and Earth. Time to ground deeply and embody a sensual sense of the fullness of the moment. Time to come home to ourselves; and to see in new Light all that we are meant to Be. And time always to

Equinox & Libra Season begins

22.09.2022 in moon&sky

Welcome Equinox & Libra Season (exact at 1804 pdt)


… reap & sow
… balance, harmony, peace … 


It is Equinox, a time when the length of day and night is ~equal. It is also the beginning of Libra season.


There’s a strong call to pause, reflect, recharge and reconsider the ways we spend our energy (waning Moon + 7 planets retrograde); and to find the balance and flow of giving and receiving, contracting and expanding (Eqnx +Libra season).


It’s a time to come into stillness. A time to ground all that nourishes balance; and release to the winds all that interferes with the same.


In the North it’s time when Nature is beginning to shed, release, and let go; a time to gather the harvest and to set the lands for rest.


In the South it’s time to nourish the soils and plant new seeds; a time when Nature begins to re-emerge and bloom.


North or South, Earth calls us to connect with hir natural rhythms, hir heart, and hir art in everything.


It’s a time for sacred honouring,


And, always, it is a time to…


Nurture your Nature

with Love & Light


May you feel in to balance, peace, and sacredness this Season

Waxing Moon, Cross Quarter, Lions Gate

08.08.2022 in moon&sky

Greeting… Cross Quarter, Waxing Moon & Lions Gate 88


….wisdom, freedom, illumination


Lots of transformational energies about. Cross Quarter* yesterday (half way between Solstice and Equinox, exact @0536), Lions Gate 88 today, and Aqua Full Moon in a few days (Aug11 @1836 pdt)…


It is a time to tune to the shift in season. Here in the North, although summer is still here, there’s a shift in the scent of the air and a coolness in the evenings. The land is golden and Bear is watching for Blackberries to ripen. It’s a time of harvest, and a time to honour Earth’s abundance.


quarius soon, it is a powerful time for clearing out old, distorted stories and leaving the past behind. Time to re-activate forgotten wisdom. Time for receiving energetic upgrades. Time to rebirth Spirit energy. Time for illumination. Time for unifying physical and spiritual realms. And time to embrace uniqueness and freedom. Ahhh…. Time to embody the strength, wisdom and confidence of our most radiant selves. And time always to…


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light

May you feel uniquely inspired,
expansively free, and
exquisitely radiant this Moon



* The actual astronomical cross-quarter day and time varies from year to year. This year, it was Aug 5 @0536 pdt. Realted festivals and celebrations now tend to occur by the Gregorian calendar and by tradition on Aug 1/2. Lammas is celebrated in the North; Imbolc in the South.

Solstice times

21.06.2022 in moon&sky, turnings

Greeting Solstice & Sun in Cancer (exact 220621 @0213 PDT) + waning Moon


… pause. reflect. harmonize …


Today is the longest day of the year in the north; in the south it is the longest night. No matter where we be, it is time to Celebrate the Light!


Solstice is the time when light and dark, in the north and the south, are in a kind of ‘peak’ balance. It’s a time to unify heart and mind; and to harmonize dualities. It is also a time when the veil between the spiritual and material worlds is thin; a time when Spirit connection is attained with greater ease. It is believed that Earth’s entire energy grid comes into harmony, and that Earth’s healing powers are strongest at this time. It is a poignant time to pause.


Solstice, Cancer Sun, and waning Moon, all call us inward. Time to reflect, review, release, revise and realign. Solstice asks us to delve deeply into who we are and where we want to be going. Cancer Sun brings compassion, sensitivity, unconditional love and deep nurture. Cancer urges us to flow into the Waters and to focus on self-care. By drawing on Cancer’s gifts, we can better align with Earth’s healing powers; our powers for self-healing are also strong at this time (Chiron-Aries).


Moon now in Aries (yesterday @2037pdt, just hours before Solstice exact) brings boldness and fearlessness. Moon and Sun together meld assertiveness and compassion; bold action and deep caring; and they help us create balance and peace. There’s also a stellium in Aries.The powers of the stellium planets (Moon, Chiron, Jupiter and Mars) come together as one force; feeling, healing, expansion and action all align and merge. This force helps us to step into our own power; and to stay true, in heart, mind and action, to what we value.


It is time to look into the dark and into the light. Time to go with the flow and to tend inner fire. Time to connect with source and flow into grace-filled space. Time to tune to all that warms heart and Spirit. Time to deeply feel the completeness of home within. Time to to align your heart beat to the thrum of the Earth. Time to Celebrate the Light! And time, always, to …


Nurture your Nature
with Love and Light


May you be filled to with Spirit’s Blessings
and all the gifts of Earth & Cosmos
resident in You and all you Be

Website Display Problems

19.06.2022 in Uncategorized

Some recent system upgrades resulted in the site not loading. The site now loads but the ‘upgrades’ also have caused problems with the display of the website.

Except for what’s contained inside a post, Logo, wordmarks and all colours have now been lost/turned black. The image here is how it’s supposed to look.

I have made several attempts to have this fixed in the last few days but host has thus far been unable to correct the problem so, for now, I’m moving on in this ‘black site.

You can still access the content and posts no problem. Will continue to work to resolve once the most recent posting is complete.

Thanks for your understanding.
Hugs and purrs
