New Moon in OUR PLACE

This coming Friday there is a New Moon, It seems to be a strong one and has been calling to me since early this week, I feel so ready for this shift in energy.

On this Virgo moon let’s:

  • Look up and remember what a vast and strange and beautiful world we live in.

  • Acknowledge our strength and how we can all work together, as our land does for us.

  • To remember that place is our identity, this world where we live and planet that we stand on is what connects us to our ancestors…

Who are our ancestors?

  • They are the trees, stones, earth, air, streams, plants, seas, stars…

IT doesn’t belong to anyone it just IS, as it always has been. It is what weaves and binds us all together. This place is our pharmacy, our school, our playground, our haven, our library and more.

It cradles and supports us.

Let us, on this new moon, look up and REMEMBER and be RESPONSIBLE in and for

OUR PLACE.

Tuning In

“Only a few generations ago in Ireland every field had its own name and history. There was also an ancient sense of the invisible world. The air is not empty.

Spirits, ghosts and fairies were one’s hidden neighbours. Now the fields as well as the imagination are growing ever more empty and poor.

If this era survives itself and does not either blow up the earth or poison it totally, I feel sure that there will be a massive return to the belief in the invisible world.

In the future there will be the ability to tune in to the spirit of a particular area…”

John O’Donoghue from ‘The Four Elements - Reflections On Nature’

Aít - Gather/Land Connection

This place is not just our domicile, but a piece of ground that is well suited to producing food. It would feel wrong to occupy that kind of land and let it lie fallow. The ethical choice is to manage it for food production in a way that maintains productivity, improves the health of its soils and watershed, and sequesters more carbon than it burns.
