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.

Midsummer Skies

June brings us an exciting time across the heavens with particular emphasis on the 4th. On this day there is a full moon in Sagittarius at 12.04 BST and also a partial eclipse, which unfortunately will not be visible from the UK although if you happen to be in Asia, Australia, the Pacific or the Americas then you will be able to see it.
On the 6th, an extremely rare event occurs, which is the transit of Venus across the face of the sun. At sunrise a partial transit can be seen from all parts of Europe, eastern Africa & western Asia, whilst at sunset it can be seen in North & central America & western south America. DO NOT LOOK AT THE SUN WITHOUT SUITABLE EYE PROTECTION.
On the 14-16 June the Lyrids meteor shower visits the skies and will produce approx 10 meteors per hour in the east after midnight.
The 21st is the summer solstice at 00.09 BST in the northern hemisphere and is the longest day of the year.
Lots to look forward to both in the heavens and on the earthly plane as the sun reaches its height and the long summer days are upon us. Enjoy
