Autumn Equinox – a Celebration of the Harvest

Autumn Equinox is a time of balance, a time when day and night are equal in length, and a time of turning inward as we contemplate the coming winter. It is also a time to express gratitude for all of the abundance and blessings that have come our way in the past year.

Druids of the Light will be meeting on Facebook Live on Saturday, September 17th at 5:00 pm to celebrate this wonderful time of harvest, and to honor Nuada and Airmed, the god and goddess of healing and prosperity.

The ceremony is approximately 30 minutes long. Suggested love offering of $10, but not required.

Full Sturgeon Moon on August 11th

We are beginning this Full Moon period on Thursday evening on August 11th and which is exact at 6:36 pm AZ (PST) time, and it is also known as the Sturgeon Moon due to the abundance of fish at this time of year.

We have a full moon when the sun and moon are considered in opposition. Astrologically, this means that both the Sun and Moon are in opposing signs, and at the time of this full moon, the sun is in Leo, and the moon will be entering Aquarius around 11:45 am on August 10th, and will be exactly opposed the Sun on August 11th at 6:36 pm. The moon in Aquarius will cause your relationship with your emotions to be more complicated because Moon in Aquarius needs emotional freedom. However, it is also easier to release yourself from fear, anger, and jealousy. This Full Moon axis deals with balancing the efforts we invest in ourselves (Leo) and what we do for the collective (Aquarius), and we may feel the inner pull between these two areas of our lives.

The Sturgeon moon is also a time to practice gratitude for all you have and the nature around you. Take a moment to really appreciate everything. Watch the video to find out more about this full moon period.

New Moon in Leo on July 28th

This New Moon period is beginning on Thursday, July 28th at 10:55 am AZ time (PDT). This new moon in Leo is a good time to focus on leadership and confidence in your own life. It’s time to take those goals you have been avoiding off the back-burner and go forth. You are being called to step up and take bold, confident action. You are the only one stopping you. Don’t listen to what others tell you to do. Listen to your own inner guidance and then do something to nudge you out of your comfort zone. We all need to push ourselves on occasion. This is definitely the time to do it.

Blessings of the new moon AND Lughnasadh to you!

Summer Solstice – a Celebration of the Light

The Summer Solstice is the time of the longest day, a time when the sun shines brightly upon us all. It is also the time of the shortest night, marking the turning of the year towards the dark times. In Arizona, the Summer Solstice is a time to celebrate the rains to come and pray for our good harvest. 

We will be meeting on Facebook Live on Saturday afternoon, June 18th, 2022 at 6:30 pm, to honor this time of new growth and innocence. 

The ceremony is approximately 30 minutes long.  Suggested love offering of $10, but none will be turned away for lack of funds.

New Moon in Gemini on May 30th

This New Moon period is beginning on Monday, May 30th at 4:30 am AZ time (PDT)

This also represents the end of one lunar cycle and the beginning of another. Astrologically, this means that both the Sun and Moon are in the same sign, and as of May 30th, they are both in Gemini. The new moon is an opportunity to restart, and a new moon can help usher in a welcomed change. It’s a time to commit to new personal goals and to improve our conversation skills.

This new moon in Gemini manifests itself as the need for changes and spontaneity and maybe more lightness and humor and just having fun. Communication is easier, however, remember that harmony of thinking and feeling is important. This is a refreshing energy after the solar eclipse – much lighter and easier for good communications, not as intense as the past month has been.
