Seed of Sacred Living

Virgo Moon ~ masterplan

It is a scorchio day in Somerset. I am aching a little today and my arm is covered in raised welts but amazingly it isn’t stinging. Yesterday I applied some lavender gel and within minutes the stinging and irritation had gone. It is the first time I have used this product and am very impressed.

For clarity ~ anything I recommend on my blogs is purely from my experience and heartfelt, I do not get any incentives or monetary gain ๐Ÿ™‚ If I feel something works for me I love to share it with the intention to share inspiring news and connections.

I use Essential Oils Direct in Oldham for my essential oil supplies and they have been in my cosmic cookie trail before I even knew what essential oils were.

In the 9o’s we used to have a courier company and my partner used to deliver for this company. One Christmas he bought me a box of essential oils and opened up a whole new world. This was several years before I trained in reflexology and aromatherapy ~ it planted a seed in my heart . When we look back it is magical to see how we have found our way to the exact places we were meant to on our illuminated journey.

Today’s energy is very much of that flavour ~ Blue Self~existing Eagle in the Mayan calendar , Taurus sun and as I am writing this Leo moon going into Virgo in the UK around 1030 am ish ~ if you use this lunarium it gives you that info ๐Ÿ™‚

It is a potent energy today to connect to the bigger picture. Imagine an eagle soaring high in the sky seeing the landscape spread below. Imagine what you are setting in motion today and how those energy ripples will touch the thread of all things in our universe and illuminate .

What we do in life echoes in eternity ~ gladiator ๐Ÿ™‚ One of my favourite films for heart path and a man of honour who kept his integrity no matter what life brought to him.

Yesterday I started to clear our patch of ground where our next project begins. It is covered in builder’s rubble and overgrown with plants. It was like an archaeological dig with bits of broken tile , pallets, insulation and lots of self seeded plants covering them up and creating their own green carpet. It took a lot of time to separate into piles so that some of the materials may be used. I replanted some of the plants I discovered such as geraniums, teasles and forget me nots.

Some pics here

As I sat down to rest, I watched the recently returned Swallows darting to and fro and remembered times past before they left ~ what a blessing Spring time is. Higher above them was a trio ofย Crows making cries like a newborn as two chased one with malicious intent. Higher still Buzzards circling. I guess it is mating time. Birds are great totems to be guided by

One of the things I have learned from my journey is implicit in Virgo energy. The patterns we live and how we repeat them. Since becoming more conscious of my path I have realised that at midlife particularly, we have a choice ~ to carry on doing our pattern from ego ~ attached to our outcome and feathering our nest to create an external validation model. Another option is the soul structure of service ~ without sacrifice ~ I do not believe we are here to be a martyr or suffer ~ that is of course an option ๐Ÿ™‚

I understood for many moons, on an intellectual level, what it means to set a goal and detach from the outcome ~ however for many years I was still very attached to my old life and doing what I knew because that gave me a certain result that I wanted…….and there are still parts of me that are ๐Ÿ™‚ When it is the perfect time and we are ready to take the next step everything falls into place ~ when the web is ready it all happens ~ all that is required is the intention to go for it ๐Ÿ™‚

Since my first visit to Glastonbury in 2010 I have become more aware of following the heart path…..and often that doesn’t make sense. To follow it means using a different guideline of trust and hearing the sacred feminine ~ which is the essence of Virgo ~ ย a way of being untouched by man’s ego mind ~ to do what we love and what feels good ~ without an agenda, without a hidden secret plan, simply because it opens our heart and…..

in the doing of it ~ we walk our true essence

in the being of it ~ we create a new energy blueprint

in the sharing of it ~ others feel the passion, feel the light, feel the love

and allow themselves to have the courage to do the same.

In this amazing time of transition ~ that we chose to be a part of ~ it is time toย 

live from our hearts and be brave to leave behind the old ways, to forge new ones.

To be our sacred selves.

Today I am off to the Sagittarius part of the Glastonbury Zodiac to take part in a Sacred Bee Ceremony. At some point we are hoping to keep bees and I find this quite daunting ~ and naturally that feeling of the challenge means……

We absolutely have to go for it ๐Ÿ™‚

I am hosting a workshop in my garden next weekend for Sagittarius Full moon.

It will be key for my structure of my vision of a dream I had back in 2000 ~ it may end up here, it may not ~ it doesn’t really matter.

More info about the heavenly vibes coming up this week:

The essential process is that I am taking this journey and creating as I go and allowing myself to trust that I am loved and held by my mother goddess energy ~ it is time for the sacred feminine to return. I am a part of the universe ~ everyone is and when we allow ourselves to remember that ~ is when magic really happens.

Love to all your structures today. Be brave and go for your heart’s desire. It doesn’t need to be a grand plan ~ whatever you are choosing that lights up your world ~ rest assured ~ it was meant to be ~ so that in the sharing of your wondrous self ~ the whole world remembers it’s true essence of love.

Capricorn Moon ~ super energised day



It is getting warmer at last and each day the plants are fluffing out into bigger areas and I always forget that ~ I have a tendency to cram in as many little beauties as possible ….and then have to transplant them, which is a pattern of mine ๐Ÿ™‚

Yesterday it was also Capricorn moon and I spent a lot of time on moving things around to accommodate new plans ~ one of which was incorporating the muck the we collected last week which is still rotting down. The Robin was close by watching this process ~ always reminds me of my Grandad who I spent my first gardening time and discovery with ~ a fellow Leo .

Today we are hoping to take our next step on enlarging our growing space with confirmation from the person that owns it.

It is a serendipitous day ~ Red Crystal Earth in the Mayan calendar ~ it is also energetically a very powerful galactic portal day ~ time to crystallise all that we have learned in the past eleven days. It is a wonderful time to connect with all in the cosmos ~ to let go of any linear limitation and to unearth our often hidden strength ~ our heart wisdom .

What can happen when we let go of our mind leading the way and be stuck in a groove ~ and be open to new ideas?

I am learning lots of new things now and one major shift in my gardening is using the moon to enhance my alignment with planting with the cycles ~ instead of merely planting with the sun and my whim ~ a great metaphor in itself ~ letting go of being masculine head drive and bringing myself into balance.

I am tuning in to cosmic guidance ~ my intuition and following the cosmic cookie trail.

We have only lived in this place for one season and there was an empty canvas to work with. I have brought some plants from the north that seem to be settling in ~ much warmer and drier start for them this year and they are loving that .

I have created a space outside for my many bean plants ~ they were covering every available light space indoors until frost recedes ~ now I have a few outside in my mini greenhouses ~ it is still a tad risky though ๐Ÿ™‚ I am feeling there may be a Jack and the beanstalk adventure ๐Ÿ™‚

I am also planting peas ~ beans haven’t been high on the menu in the past ~ remnants of bean experiences at school that I didn’t relish as a child, put me off them except for the tinned variety. I am now exploring lots of options with new recipes and new knowledge about how to use them and what they offer.

I am creating a structure and using the three sisters routine ~ instantly reminds me of ย the White Christmas routine with Danny Kaye and Bing Crosby ~ always a family ritual for me as a child watching the film with my Mum and Nan …… how we link up to our childhood structures in everything we create .

Today’s pic isn’t my structure ~ I haven’t got the space for this at the moment but it really inspired me as a future possibility and I loved discovering lots of ideas in writing this blog today ~ takes me on a journey of discovery ย ~ loved the Yorkshire Sculpture Park for this ~ living structures we can get inside ~ reminds me of den building as a child too.

Love the Lost gardens of Heligan ~ planning to visit later in the year and found this one in the USA ~ love this.

Creating dens out in the woods , in your bedroom, in the garden with anything and everything like a magpie collecting treasure. I used to use my Nan’s big wooden clothes maiden which I still had until very recently.

As a child I used to cover it in old blankets that were from the Navy and the second world war.

I often took things from the house ~ much to my Nan’s chagrin. She didn’t like the worms I put in her pinnie pocket either ๐Ÿ™‚

I loved getting the tent out ~ each year that was a ritual ย for me ~ confirmation that summer had arrived. It smelt musty like the wooden garage ~ a man made artifice amongst the smell of freshly mowed grass and strong smelling flowers. It was strongly connected to feel good times and so an instant anchor to them. The nose is such a potent time travel portal.

So this year I am going to create a three sister’s structure ~ again a very Mayan linkage. This involves corn, beans and squash creating a structure together.

Corn for solar plexus ~ yellow, squash for sacral chakra ~ orange and beans for heart ย chakra ~ heart.

Capricorn moon

Very apt for creating structure and with the principle of what we are doing…..

we are being……..

we are having…….

We are creating our universe through our structure in action.

Capricorn is about skeleton, bones and skin ~ how we stand in the world and how we receive it through our biggest organ ~ the skin. The skin is our fence and our boundary between ourselves and the world we live in. The spine is what supports this structure and our staff of life, tree of life, our magician’s wand.

Capricorn is the hardy goat that strides ahead Julie Andrew’s style ~ climb every mountain ~ to see what is at the top.

It is also a sign that is very practical and focuses on this ~ often avoiding feelings in the process and this is the major challenge of the Capricorn as it is the disciple and the spiritual seeker.

Vegetables that are associated with Capricorn ~ย 

Root crops are best planted in a waning moon ~ now ๐Ÿ™‚ As the moon pull is receding this allows the process of putting down good roots, grounding, going within energy

Potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, radish,parsnip

Capricorn Waning moon for holistic rejuvenation

It is a great time for a detox and letting go at this time. Going within, rest and recuperation ~ not the time for mountain climbing and putting pressure on our skeleton ย . We are in the third quarter of the moon so time to integrate all that started in the first quarter with the new moon and the build up in the big Scorpio full moon and eclipse that we have just gone through. Time to let it go and be released.

This moon is earthy and dry and likes structure ~ if that is your moon that reflects your feminine side and mother archetypes. If it is your sun sign this can reveal the shadow side.

A sprinkling of good old Will today ~ ย 

an ode from Will Shakespeare


Our bodies are our gardens, to the which

our wills are gardeners; so that if we will

plant nettles or sow lettuce, set hyssop

and weed up thyme, supply it with one gender

of herbs or distract it with many~

either to have it sterile with idleness

or manured with industry ~

why, the power and corrigible authority

of this lies in our wills


I do my my walking meditation in my gardening and my exercise in this earthly gym …….and sometimes I sit and I breathe in the heady aroma of my beautiful , bountiful fragrant friends.

What more do we need than to sow and to weed ?

Love to you and your structures today. May they build lovely arbours of light and shade.
