The Energy of Mabon

Autumn is officially here. But as always, I like to talk about how our own cycles reflect the seasonal ones, and what the changing seasons mean to me on a deeper level.

I can’t turn on the internet or the television without getting angry.  So I have to deal with that. Anger, you see, has ripples. It ripples outward and […]

Spring!

It’s here, it’s here! The Vernal Equinox was yesterday. Today is the first full day of spring. Daytime and nighttime are equal, and from now on every single day will be a little bit longer, and every night will be a little bit shorter, until the longest day of them all, the Summer Solstice.

Manifesting Maniac

I knew this was coming. I had that moment last summer. I was meditating pretty regularly, out by my pond. Some days I was too entranced by my Koi to close my eyes, and just spent the time adoring them instead. I’m told that kind of appreciation is better than meditation, because that’s when you’re […]
