Post Eclipse: The Long Player

  Good day to you changelings and how are we finding the ripples in the matrix today? Now that we are a week past the eclipse (or six months if you recall the delicious pace of life pre interwebs) it is all too easy to forget how the world was collectively gasping as they stared…

Front Flip

In a world that demands our vaulting evolution whilst decrying the process and the time it takes to grow, I have noticed a curiously toxic phenomenon. I’m calling it a front-flip, because it smacks of a backflip only with a vomitous forward motion. It seems now that once you reach a shiny new plateau of…

In Your Element

In ritual, in magic and in life we talk a lot about the elements. They are a first principle, a building block from which greater things are comprised. This is true too in fields as diverse as mathematics and language, chemistry and geometry, electricity and astronomy and digital technology. Humans have learned over aeons that…

Retreat at Mystwood in Wollombi

Eclipse Fatigue

This post is dedicated to anyone with eclipse fatigue. To the many who have been barely hanging by a fingernail as the eclipse rollercoaster looped their loop on loop. To those confused by the standard new moon new beginning exhortations that fly in the face of how post-eclipsia really FEELS. To anyone whose boredom, pain…

Sun and Moon as Lovers

“Sometimes I think of the sun and moon as lovers who rarely meet, always chase and almost always miss one another. But once in a while they do catch up, and they kiss, and the world stares in awe of their eclipse…”   I always think of the sun and moon as lovers, her grace…

Pre-eclipsia

Dark moon in Leo feels, as channelled by my familiar, Elvira. As Mistress of the Dark she knows all too well that the distance travelled once slungshot out of a new moon is directly proportional to the level at which you let go and made space during the dark. This is non negotiable magic cat…
