Welcome to Mrs Darley's Blog

This blogspot has been created especially for those who wish to share their ideas and thoughts about the natural world as the year turns and the ancient Pagan festivals that were once celebrated by our ancestors.

Poetry, prose craft work, ancient cure craft and general thoughts and feelings on how the change in the weather and seasons makes you feel are all encouraged and welcomed.

Mrs Darley was my once next door neighbour when I lived amongst the wilds of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall back in the early 1990's. Her charismatic ways and unending wisdom lead me on a journey of self discovery as I spiralled ever further into her magical world.

She has since become the central character in the 'Mrs Darley' series of books.

Waxing Gibbous Moon

The Moon is now between its first quarter and full, and is said to be in its 'Gibbous' phase, which derives from the Latin word 'gibbosus' meaning, 'humpbacked' and describes rather aptly its odd shape as it moves towards the full orb. The Moon appears in the sky during the afternoon and sets early in the morning.

The Gibbous Moon exudes confidence as She stamps her independence on the night sky and calls us to mirror her example. She calls us to move forward, to take action and strive ever toward our dreams. She wills us to make that phone call, fill in the job application form, ask friends around to dinner and shouts, 'carpe diem' or 'seize the day', just live for the moment for that is all there is.

The warrior Goddess Artemis captures the essence of the gibbous moon for she knows what she wants and sets out to achieve her goals. She is old enough to benefit from being self assured yet still maintains the impetuosity of youth. Call upon her when self assurance is required or when you need to stand on your own two feet.
