Ritual to Cut Cords

All too often we still feel tethered to the energy of something or someone. Yet we know intuitively that it no longer serves us and that it is time to move on. Cord cutting rituals are a wonderful way to energetically sever a connection. Best performed as a meditation in ritual space, they remain a…

Three Days of Darkness :: Unforgiveness

That old chesnut. By its very nature, refusing to forgive hooks us to precisely the stuff we’re trying to overcome and then move far from. We cling resolutely to our anger – and the fight – because it feels like forgiving the transgression condones it and lets the perpetrator off lightly. Our very real desire…

Dark Moon Doldrums

Not all moons are created equal. The syrupy depths of the dark moon hide treasure in their treacle. They reward your surrender. Some days and in some lives a tall order. The dark moon is always heavy. It fatigues us if we fight its imperative to slow, to still. Only in the quiet of the…

Three Days of Darkness :: The Shame Game

As the second part of this series designed to prepare you for eclipse season by relinquishing another chunk of thy shadowy shit, today we peer at our shame. Oh the dark weed that takes root within us and demands we hide ourselves beneath it. Shame springs from where we have been marginalised, taunted or degraded…

Three Days of Darkness :: The Blame Game

The dark moon is the best time, every single month in a row, to clear the decks and make space for What Comes Next. And there is nothing that tethers us quite as effectively to the past than the blame game. Childish, pointless and disempowering in the extreme, blaming others for where you find yourself…

The Dark Moon Underwater

The dark moon in Pisces before she emerges anew is a deep abyss in the cavernous ocean of the self. These are the closing moments of eclipsia, whose peculiar medicine has been as unsettling as it has been instructive. Holy mother of Neptune what a colossal catalyst she was. Here now we tread water in…

The Big Let Go

When it comes to spirit animals, Miss Piggy has a place in my pantheon. As she rightly articulated this week – and I respectfully paraphrase – we fight to hold on and oh my giddy aunt how hard we fight to simply let go. Held fast as we are in the syrupy thick of the…

Dark Moon Disaster

We have officially entered the balsamic phase or the deepest dark of the moon. How well you dance through your darkness is the scene setter (and greatest determinant, in this witch’s opinion) of how effective your new moon will be. And this next new moon in a few days – a solar eclipse and the…

Dark Moon Dial In

Just phoning in from the depths of our first dark moon to see how you are doing. Remember that niggle and snark is Uranus (insert joke here / see yesterday’s post) agitating for change. Revolution right now. Your disquiet is a giant flashing arrow above your resistance. So there’s that. It is quite the challenge…

Uranian Wake Up Call

There’s been a niggle in the air the last few days, floating snark that I hadn’t quite been able to nail down. And then this dark moon weekend, rudely awakened more than once by forces outside myself, it has dawned on me with the exaction of a thousand alarm clocks. Ding ding 2018. Change is…
