Mabon Memories

Time for  preparing for the doorway down, through the Mysteries once again, Mabon is approaching, I shall open myself to the seeing, this place of deep waters is for my healing. The land is slowing, rotting, swelling and falling.
I was often scared, and lived with much fear throughout my being, in my earlier years. To cope I didn’t move, I kept quiet. I shut down, I didn’t get involved. I didn’t really live.
Autumn reminds me of this time, its Nature is imprinted in my bones, and water holds the memories that bring me back, year after year to revise it, to learn, to walk through new lessons, and to grow stronger through the deep harvest in Water.

As I grow older like the sacred land, I want to get better and live a full, happy life, cause I deserve it!

As I reach out more and participate in humanity, Hecate stands at the crossroads, smiling, and she shows me this key to harmony. The Wisdom of the Goddess shows me the importance of service, and that my longed-for healing takes place with the living.

The divine Presence within me knows to become whole, I need to live now, to take part, and become involved with others. Some days I can choose to do just a little at a time, until I feel I can do more.

As I mature so does my willingness to let more people in, the healing is a process that I will continue till I draw my last breath and journey west for the final time in this incarnation. I see how unhealthy I have been, and now as Autumn Equinox approaches, I know my recovery has begun yet again as we move to this place on the Compass, the place of deep reflection and scrying and deep memory; you too can take this opportunity for your own healing.

All of us have a deep, deep desire to belong, spiritually we are at our best when we participate with others, this is the time of year to consider cutting down the branches of isolation, and make the way for new growth toward a life of loving involvement. Remember this…Life is for living!

You are never alone



Behind the darkness there is always light,

Hold hope in your heart, and acknowledge.

Your faith will give you strength,

Your witch blood will bring courage.

You are not alone; you are loved by many,

Your ancestors are standing there on your shoulders.

Find the silence to hear them, love them,

Go within and engage with your Divine Presence.

Use your cunning ways, wisdom and gratitude,

Trust your healing, intuition and wildness.

To lead you on your crooked path,

And to help you develop a new sense of living.

Morning Call

As I stir from my slumber,

I stir also from my ignorance.

Waxing moon light softly falls,

Lighting the way on my journey to you.


Through the dreamscape entwined lovers,

Your words touch me deeply.

My heart space grows,

The lotus unfolds in me to greet you.


The sun shines over the morning’s horizon,

His light glows on the Jacaranda tree, outside my window.

It is made more beautiful, and stands brilliantly,

Bathed in the light of the divine.


Shadows evaporate as his light touches her,

Lighting up her shadows, falling in the secret places.

The mysteries of her curves explored by his light,

Her dew drops glisten, shining bright.


Calling to him, across the valleys,

Oh gentle soul, my arms await you.

The Goddess calls her Lord to the dance,

Not long now till the lovers reunite.


Sending much love, respect and sisterhood to all the women on the planet today, Happy International Women’s Day!…celebrate being a woman today and may your day be both blessed and amazing!

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
’cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again
Oh yes I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
You can bend but never break me
’cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
’cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul
I am woman watch me grow
See me standing toe to toe
As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land
But I’m still an embryo
With a long long way to go
Until I make my brother understand
Oh yes I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to I can face anything
I am strong (strong)
I am invincible (invincible)
I am woman
Oh, I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman
I am invincible
I am strong
I am woman

And then think about the women in Syria, in Afghanistan, in Iran, in Africa, in places on this globe where they are not free to just be, today we are blessed and can make a conscious effort to assist women, who are abused, raped and treated in ways that is beyond our understanding today. May this day make us aware of the so much more we as women can be doing to educate and protect our sisters in all regions of this planet. So mote it Be!

The Gentle Man

I embrace this day.

As I wish to embrace you.

Your words greet me,

Like the magpie song greets the dawn.

Your thoughts touch my skin,

Like the easterly breeze of morning.


Excitement builds, anticipation awaits.

As the sun reaches the Earth, so too, do I reach out.

To you and pull you closer to embrace you,

Your spirit touches and lights the folds.

Of my body, desire builds,

Like birds song, fluttering in my belly.


Not long now, till we are united in the mists of autumn,

In the lands of lushness and tall gums.

Lips on lips, singing up murmurs of desire,

Our souls entwined in the poetry of the ancients.

Gathering passion for our erotic slow dance, rivers swelling,

The dams overflow, and precipitation returns to the gullied landscape.
