Moon Magic…

Saturday saw a Full Blue Moon here in the UK. The Flower Moon, also known as the Milk Moon, The Hare Moon and The Corn planting Moon. I did not actually see it, if I am honest with you but it was there somewhere. The Moon is a very powerful entity! It is said that the Moon can affect our moods, as well as the tides. You hear the term Lunar Effect and Moon Madness, by the light of the Moon and of course Moon Magic. Mankind has always been mesmerised by this beautiful satellite, at least I think it is the Earth’s satellite, so much so that we sent men up to the Moon. There was a time when sending men up to the Moon was just a pipe dream, and people did not believe it was at all  possible. It became reality, demonstrating that dreams can and do come true, and that anything is possible. The appearance of a Blue Moon is said to be much more powerful than a normal Full Moon. We can apparently expect good times, good luck, and good karma to come our way with the appearance of a Blue Moon. I guess though, it helps to believe in these things. I for one do believe in these things. I believe in Magic and know we all have it within our power to make Magic in our worlds. We get to create our own realities! It really is up to us!

In wolf symbolism we are reminded to trust our hearts and minds, and that we have control over our own lives. Again, something from our natural world teaching us that we can achieve anything, if we focus our attention on the goal, whatever that goal may be. We can learn much from the natural world! If you have a dream or a goal that you want to achieve, focus on it, give it your full attention, believe you can achieve it, act like you already have it, and watch the Magic happen! Just take that first step. Whether that is signing up for a course, a class, an event, applying for a new job, changing direction, writing a book, just take that first step. A dream/goal  begins with an idea, a vision, a seed, and then it is up to us to nurture it, and watch it grow. Every journey begins with a single step! So take that first step today!

All the images here are mine. The Blue Moon was a picture I captured of a Super Moon last year but I changed it’s colour in Photoshop. The Wolf image was captured on a recent trip to Longleat Safari Park, and the image at the top was the two images blended together in Photoshop, something I have been teaching myself to do. I hope you like them.

Imbolc

Last night I had the strangest of dreams! There was a pregnant man. Yes, I said a pregnant man. How can that be you may well ask. From what I understand, to dream of pregnancy within a dream is about giving birth to new ideas/projects and the like and not babies as in the real world. That said, I told my husband of my dream as I always do. He always listens, never really comments, and just accepts that I often have weird abstract dreams which I tell him about upon waking. He is used to it, and has listened to me telling him what I dreamed of for the best part of thirty five years. So nothing new there then!

Today is Imbolc in the Celtic Calendar, Candlemas in the Christian Calendar, also known as St Bridget’s Day. I knew this and knew a little about this. In the Celtic tradition, Imbolc marks the beginning of Spring , though with all this snow and freezing conditions, it does not feel much like Spring. It is, it seems the beginning of the lambing season, and there is the hint of new life in the making. Strangely, the original word Imbolc means ‘in the belly’ and that all is expectant and pregnant. There is the promise of renewal, potential that is hidden, and the life force is awakening.  As I read about Imbolc, and thought about my dream it seemed that maybe I am being given a message of some sort, maybe?

Imbolc is a time for letting go of the past, looking to the future, getting rid of what no longer serves us; clearing out the old and making room for the new. A time of new beginnings.  Brigid/Bridget is a Goddess of healing, poetry and smith craft. I have recently re-embarked on my journey in Pranic Healing, been revisiting my love of poetry, and my mum’s maiden name is Smyth (my mum is Irish and therefore I have Celtic roots). I come from a farming family on my Mum’s side, and my great grandfather was a Farrier/Blacksmith.  As I do not believe in coincidences, I am sure my dreams were sending me messages that the time is right for bringing in a new way of being. I believe in dreams, I believe in magic!

I wish you all a wonderful Imbolc/Candlemas and hope that what you dream for comes true, and that you may find magic in all that you do!
