The Winter Solstice is a solemn time when we acknowledge the longest night. It is a time of introspection and profound beauty. As the seasons turn, it is also a time of celebration, as from this time forth in the wheel of the year, the light returns and the days grow longer.
Come and join Druids of the Light in acknowledgement of the darkness and the return of the light. We will be meeting on Facebook Live at 4:00 pm on Saturday evening, December 17th, 2022. The ceremony is approximately 30 minutes long. Suggested love offering of $10.
This Full Moon period is beginning on Wednesday evening, December 7th at 9:08 pm AZ (MST) time. Also known as the Cold Moon, it marks the turning point when things have reached their coldest and darkest, meaning things can only get brighter.
Astrologically, the Sun and Moon are in opposing signs, and at the time of this full moon, the sun is in Sagittarius, and the moon is in Gemini. This particular full moon will bring about a time of both reflection and looking ahead, which is quite fitting with the close of the year – and thus, the meaning of the Cold Moon… A time for introspection and soul-searching, and a chance to recharge and reconnect. The moon in Gemini reflects feelings of duality and curiosity, and we will likely be feeling the need to express our true selves. Gemini also expresses a playful side of us – the social butterfly – and this will help us to keep things light even under pressure.

Also, be aware that we will be holding our Winter Solstice Ceremony online on Druids of the Light’s Facebook page on Saturday, December 17th – and replays will be available.
This New Moon period begins Wednesday afternoon on November 23rd at 3:57 pm AZ Time (MST).
Astrologically, this means that both the Sun and Moon are both in Sagittarius. The new moon is usually a time of new beginnings, and this New Moon gives you an optimistic approach to life and the belief that things will get better. It’s a time to reset and recharge, especially after the eclipse season!
It IS a time of new beginnings. As we have been clearing out the old through the process of harvest, we are now opening to the new to come in. The energy of Sagittarius is adventurous and philosophical. You want to expand your horizons. This energy inspires us to find wisdom in the journey, and we may feel a welcome lightness as we move out of the intensity of Scorpio and into the optimistic, inspiring Sagittarius energy. It’s a wonderful time to manifest, to attract abundance, and see the bright side of things.

The next full moon is on December 7th, and i will be back to tell you more.
Winter Solstice will be on December 17th, hopefully on Facebook Live like usual. I’ll keep you informed!
We are beginning this Full Moon period on Tuesday morning on November 8th and which is exact at 4:02 AZ (MST) time… also known as the Beaver Moon, due to this becoming a time when beavers would be building their winter dams and hunters would set traps to capture the heavy pelts to keep warm in the winter.
At the time of this full moon, the sun is in Scorpio, and the moon will be exactly opposed the Sun on November 8th at 4:02 am. Some folks say that this particular full moon is considered a reflection of our hearts and emotions (Scorpio) vs our power and determination (Taurus) so be prepared for some butting of heads, and that this also has to do with soul karma seeing as this full moon is also a lunar eclipse. Because eclipses bring endings, shifts and leaps into new states of being, it could be very intense. Ultimately, the lesson is to let go of drama and power plays, and appreciating basic values. Change for the better is a good motto to hold for this time, especially since there will be change during this moon phase.
This New Moon period is beginning early Sunday, October 25th at 3:49 pm AZ time (PDT). This time represents the end of one lunar cycle and the beginning of another, which means that both the Sun and Moon are astrologically in the same sign, and on Oct. 25th, they are both in Scorpio.
The new moon is usually a time of new beginnings, and this New Moon is a bit of a whirlwind due to the intensity and emotional nature of Scorpio, as well as some of the aspects to this new moon, which is also a Solar Eclipse. So, it’s actually best to go with the flow this time around.
One of the BEST aspects to this New Moon is a conjunction with Venus, the planet of Love and Relationship, so you may be making new priorities in regards to such, especially in the direction of understanding and fairness.
There is also an alignment with Chiron, the wounded healer, which will help with the inner emotional work that will arise. There are aspects to Uranus and Saturn that can bring about some sudden changes. This particular aspect can also help bring about revolutionary shifts in our social structures and collective values.

Also, please note that we will be holding our Samhain ceremony on October 29th at 4:30 pm on Facebook Live. You can tune in then, or watch the replay which will be available after. Also, please consider donating something to Druids of the Light if you can. You can donate right on our Druids of the Light Facebook page. We are asking this, as our donations have been low and this is one of the ways we can fund these online events.
This Full Moon period begins on Sunday afternoon on October 9th and is exact at 1:55 pm AZ (PST) time. Also known as the Hunter’s Moon, this is the time when hunters would go out to catch game for the coming winter.
We have a full moon when the sun and moon are considered in opposition, and at the time of this full moon, the sun is in Libra, and the moon will be entering Aries on 8:57 am on October 8th, and will be exactly opposed the Sun on October 9th at 1:55 pm.
Some folks say that this particular full moon will focus on relationships, partially due to the Sun being in Libra, the sign of partnership, but also due to a close conjunction with Venus, the planet of love and romance. Much of this energy will have to do with finding the balance between your needs and the needs of others. And interestingly, the Hunter’s Moon is often thought of as the moon of Love and good luck.
This is also a great time to do your inner healing – especially before the dark half of the year. Face your wounds and surrender them, so that you are in a better space to let go of the old and prepare for the new. This is also tempered by Chiron – the asteroid of the wounded healer – which is also joining forces with this Full Moon. When we surrender, we are letting go and opening to forgiveness, which actually gives us more courage and confidence to go forward.

A few more bits of news…. First, our Samhain ceremony will be on October 29th at 4:30 pm on Facebook Live. I will be posting more about that in the next week or so. And as for the online classes, I am having some challenges with finding the right platform, so it may be postponed for a while longer, although my hope was to start just after Samhain. I will definitely keep you informed about it all.
We are beginning this New Moon period as of Sunday, September 25th at 2:55 pm AZ time (PDT). New Moons 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 on Sept 25th, they are both in Libra. The new moon is a time of new beginnings, and this New Moon is a time of balance, fairness, and harmony. So it is a great time to set intentions to have better relationships with others and to find that inner balance in your own life.
Many people see it as a good time to start or deepen romantic relationships as Libra is ruled by Venus, but it is also a time to deepen ALL relationships with others, especially your birth family, your soul family, or the family of humanity in general. Use diplomacy and equality in your dealings with others, as well as with your own self. It’s a great time to do inner child work. This is also a great time to make some positive changes in your life. The Libra energy helps with this.

Stay tuned to learn more about our online classes which we will be starting around Samhain.
This Full Moon period is beginning on Saturday morning on September 10th and which is exact at 2:59 am AZ (PST) time… also known as the Harvest Moon, due to its close proximity to the Autumn Equinox. Right now, the sun is in Virgo, and the moon will be entering Pisces around 12:42 am on September 9th, and will be exactly opposed the Sun on September 10th at 2:59 am. Since this is happening in the middle of the down-to-earth Virgo season, practicality and logic are still prevalent, but the Pisces moon brings in more sensitive energy, and enhances our intuition. This full moon is also loosely conjunct Neptune, the ruling planet of Pisces, so this emphasizes the imaginative, sensitive aspect, and we may need to concentrate to stay grounded. It’s a great time to find the balance between order and chaos. This is also a great time to use the empathy of the Pisces moon to dedicate ourselves to serving all of humanity for the greatest good.
Watch the video for more details.
Remember, our Autumn Equinox ceremony is on Sept 17th at 5:00 pm (PDT) on Facebook Live. Tune in if you can. Watch the replay if you can’t be there live.
Still researching options for weekly classes again. Whatever we choose will give you options to buy bundled packages or single classes, and the plan is that classes will be both online and in person. Will fill you in on more details as I know them.
This New Moon period is beginning Saturday, August 27th at 1:17 am AZ time (PDT) A New Moon 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 on August 27th, they are both in Leo.
The new moon is a time of new beginnings, and this New Moon presents an excellent opportunity for us to formulate some goals regarding “all things Virgo” which include organization, cleanliness, health, work, and new habits.
This new moon in Virgo is a good time to focus on starting over, and/or getting back on track. Because Virgo is so practical, it really is a time to get back to business. This may affect our workplace, our projects, and it may even bring new professional opportunities. Virgo energy likes a clean environment, so it’s a great time to clean house (both physically and in spirit). Detoxes are easier at this time – both physical and mental!

Also, be aware that our Autumn Equinox ceremony is on September 17th, 2002 at 5:00 pm on Facebook Live; three weeks from this New Moon.
Exciting news! I am in the process of planning to start classes again both in person and online. I am exploring platforms, and will, for sure, post here when that is all arranged. My hope is to start right after Samhain, and if everything goes well, they will be held live and on Zoom on Wednesday nights from 5:30-7:00 pm, and my plan is to have a platform to make them available to folks who want to work through our Study Program, at any time, or if you can’t make the class and want to watch them later. All of that is in the works….At some point, I may also present ceremony in person as well as on the same platform. Stay tuned!
