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.

June Skies

Tonight (14) sees the beginning of the Lyrid Meteor shower, which should last until Sunday. It's not the best show of the year as it only produces around 10 per hour, but worth a look never the less high in the south.
If you want to see Saturn and His rings then the 19 is best as the moon passes just below and therefore acts as a good indicator.
The Summer Solstice is on the 21st at 6.03GMT in the sign of Scorpio and the full perigee moon is on Mid-Summer's Eve (23rd) - that should certainly be a sight worth seeing.
Here's to clear night skies and long warm days.

The Honey Moon

Today at 16.56 the Honey Moon, Blessing Moon or Mead Moon enters our skies. The three names come from the fact that the month of June was seen as a blessing from the Gods as it was a time of warmer weather and longer days. It was a time when many people chose to marry once May, the sacred month of the Goddess had passed and it was a time when honeyed mead was made. This was thought to be the heavenly drink of the Teutonic Gods and thus considered to have many medicinal and healing properties.
May this June Moon bring you many blessings.
