Cycles of the Sun and the Moon in Our Lives

Back in the days of many, many moves, I would migrate instead of living through any unpleasant season. Now that I’m rooted in a less than gorgeous area, honoring the change of Seasons and the Wheel of the Year has become an important practice of grounding and gratitude, regardless of the weather.

Humans evolved in alignment with the movement of the sun and the moon. As the sun moved, so did human camps of hunters and gathers.

    What a strikingly beautiful Wheel of the Year! I also admire how you have chosen to “bloom” where you are planted and to create beauty around you. For not just your own enjoyment, but for the enjoyment and inspiration of others around you. It is in this year that you have seen your garden acquire its own momentum, its own “life force”. It has come alive as a living organism with your and the Fae’s loving nurturning. Now is the time to enjoy and give thanks for your life and your garden’s bountiful harvest. As we, your readers, give thanks for your sharing your garden and Fae with us.
