It is summer, post Litha, Summer Solstice a surge of continuous energy is very welcomed. I feel on an equal flow with the universal intentions and designs and find throwing myself into all things home, family, finances, creating and inventing new ways of improving our lives.
The Goddess is pregnant at this time and our garden plot is filled with fresh produce. Emerald green newly born cucumbers, fragrant herbs and greens, full-bellied cabbages ready to ‘burst’ and be eaten. It is such a blessing to feel this abundance in the season and in the heart.
It has been very hot, which is often a struggle for me. I have always said that there is no such thing as a bad weather. Well, the heat is possibly the only time you will hear me complaining a bit. When many seek to escape to hot countries for their holidays I am off to the north of Scotland. Isle of Skye is promising pure magical immersion and enchanting experiences. I can hardly wait. I am definitely more of a cool, shady creature, who enjoys early mornings and late evenings, Moon light and the second part of the year. I do love the abundance of the summer months and our fresh, delicious organic produce the Earth gifts us with, but I do love the autumn and winter when one goes within for hibernation and deep work in the shadows.
Here’s a poem I wrote recently, which again expresses my love for nature and feeling that ‘belonging’, that ‘feeling at home’ experience when walking the path of the witch, old ways, nature-bound deliciousness and alignment.
I cannot wait to be as one with the Land of my soul next week and breathe easy and in tune with all things wild, magical and free.
Oh how soul craves the Earth, the bare, moist and deep
The calling drenched in sweetest voice directs oneself to thee
You are the stars, the Moon, the Sun, the flowers on forest floor
You are the fallen leaves that fly surrendering to her
The Earth’s warmth and calm embrace gives power to soul
To rest, to be, to sing and dance In circle of the coil
One whole, one complete within…
