Flying Foxes

Heaps of flying foxes were heading East tonight it’s amazing how they take flight on twilight, I wonder where they head for their feeding…..fed the horses, talked to a few cows on my walk tonight, gave Woody the female Labrador an apple she just loves them, strange dog!, the crickets were chirping louder than the frogs for a change, there is a nice chill in the air, I love this time of year.

Equinox Australia


As we stand opposite the place of the rising sun that gave us light for the last 6 months we now turn to the deep waters of the changing time, sunset, dusk, autumn, harvests end, as the darkness increases the sun grows old, our thoughts turn towards the coming winter.

Let’s weigh up what we have achieved and start plans for what is to come, let’s sort and store our seeds, and prepare our tools for our journey to the underworld, the deep mysteries.

We stand at this western water crossroad preparing ourselves emotionally for the passage within to the deepest self.

On Tuesday when the sun moves into the astrological sign of Aries here in Australia, we celebrate the moment of Equinox, of balance, light and dark, and of the turning of the wheel.


“Expectations are premeditated resentments.”


When I find myself having expectations, alarm bells ring deep within my being as it indicates that somehow I am still trying to control people, places and things. I have found that I can normally trace any resentment I feel back to my expectations.

Sometimes when I am not rested or I haven’t nurtured myself properly by taking time to centre with my own divine presence I forget that my job is to simply to show up and to be in my day, the divine Nature will take care of the results.

Since expectations are results in disguise, it’s no wonder they so easily lead to resentments.


With all the water movement here around where I live on the East Coast of NSW, I look deeper into the effects of this movement of Nature.

Now is a good time to spot the platypus on top of creeks and streams where they live, because the water movement brings them to the surface.


Platypus give us connection the ancient animals. Platypus gives us the ability to remain unique, and to show us the value of remaining as you are, and also the ability of rearing your children differently. A wonderful Pagan mascot for us, because we too are seen as “different”.

Platypus teaches us the ability of rising above turbulence, learning to embrace all aspects of one’s self, especially those aspects that don’t seem to fit. Platypus teaches the ability to adapt to any change in one’s environment. This essence also gives the courage to discover and be your true self.
