Just so you know, I was given a copy of The Ancestral Oracle of the Celts by Caitlín Matthews to review by Watkins Publishing.  However, these are my own impressions about the oracle deck – not influenced at all by a freebie oracle deck!  The deck is published on 13th August 2019. Let’s begin. First, I believe this to be an updated version of an older oracle deck – The Celtic Wisdom Oracle Cards – which I have buried somewhere in… Read more

The moon can be the guide when hormones cannot be.  The new moon, the time that represents menstruation, can rise truth to the surface like a spring tide. All of us, regardless of gender, can use the lunar energy to explore truth and to allow it to grow as the moon waxes.  Not only can we find our truth but then we must tell it. Share it.

To be in this time between Mother and Crone is an honour that many of my foremothers never achieved.  From a witchcraft perspective, it creates a space for self-reflection and self-enquiry.  We can use this time to find ourselves and tentatively leave the comfortable slippers of the mother behind. Read more

Hold a sacred solo cacao ceremony at home. It can be a powerful experience to share the cacao with a group of people but don’t feel you must be in a group to experience the medicine of cacao. As cacao is linked with opening the heart and emotions, you might prefer to hold a ceremony alone in familiar surroundings. Read more

Energetically, winter is the time to slow down.  To pause.  To rest.  To settle into becoming. Mother Nature does an amazing job of showing us the way with dark mornings, dark evenings and weather that doesn’t entice you out to play. But we live in a culture that values the energy of spring with it’s glorious youth and growth.
