the dark and the new

Dark Moon

Waning and dark moon rites are for guidance and understanding, and for assimilation of wisdom on inner levels. It is a time for quiet inward reflection, reaping the fruits of our wisdom and experience.

New Moon

The new moon is sacred to the maiden of the triple moon goddess, bringing inspiration and intution. It is like a new seed, full pof potential and energy. TRhe new moon is the time for new beginnings, the time to begin new projects, new directions, new resolutions. It is the best time for invocation and speaking out your intent.(Ref': Kindred, 2007)

The dark of the Moon is the most powerful time psychically. It seems to lure us toward the deepest self, the longings of the soul, and restful listening is a great way to receive these messages. It's been compared to the dormant seed under the winter snow, or the cocoon holding the butterfly. You might feel tired, or crave quiet solitude. It's important to make space for the unfolding of the spirit at this time. Like death itself, it's preparation for the new beginning that begins with the crescent. Each dark Moon is a chance to be renewed, to experience unknowing, and to gain timeless wisdom. The dark Moon opens a door to the past, and it reaches back far into the collective memory. Make it a sacred time for yourself each month, a time to connect to the great mystery of life.

wyrd is weird

Wyrd is the unfolding of our personal destiny. It has sometimes been translated into modern English as ‘fate’. But it is much deeper than that. It does not see our lives as ‘pre-determined’. Rather, it is an all-encompassing view which connects us to all things, thoughts, emotions, events in the cosmos as if through the threads of an enormous, invisible but dynamic web. Today, scientists know intellectually that all things are interconnected. But the power of Wyrd is to realise this in our inner being, and to know how to use it to manifest our personal destiny.  (ref: Brian Bates wayofwyrd.com)

It can not be understood, yet we already understand.
It can not be controlled, yet we have choices.

There is nothing more comforting that one's own hearth. As winter closes in and the introspection begins, the all embracing warmth of a hearth is a comfort that no electrrical applicance can mimic.

How is it possible that such a heat can be soft?

How is it that the sound, smell and sight of a hearth conjures memories so distant, one loses a grip on the now?

There is something primal about staring into the flames and seeing your past, present and future.

I love winter.
