The Beauty of the Mother Moon

Wolf Moon Goddess

I gaze in awe at the beautiful light from our Mother Moon,

With her I take time to commune.

I speak from my heart about love and life.

This is time to vent my strife.

She fills me thoughts of sliver linings and shinny gold.

I ask her to share her sliver and gold for all my needs be met and my purse can hold.

I give her thanks for her unconditional love, protection, and guidance as I walk my path.

I ask that the heat and rain be not too bad in case I have done something to earn her wrath.

– Lady Beltane

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

Ok ladies please do not get upset that I am posting a thing for Father’s Day but did not for Mother’s Day. The reason I did not for Mother’s Day is it happens on different days worldwide and I did not want to pick one date over another, but you will have a Happy Mother’s Day post today!

Switzerland Zoo Announces Birth of Rare Albino Giant Galapagos Tortoise: ‘Phenomenon of Nature’

Mom, Siblings, and Albino Baby

The Tropiquarium Zoo in Servion, Switzerland, recently welcomed two giant Galapagos tortoises, one tortoise with darker coloring, like its parents, and one with albinism.

A Switzerland zoo is introducing a “new phenomenon of nature” at its facility.

On Thursday, the Tropiquarium Zoo in Servion, Switzerland, announced it recently welcomed two baby giant Galapagos tortoises. One tortoise has darker coloring, like its parents, and one has albinism — a rarity for the species. The sex of the baby tortoises has yet to be determined.

Incredible birth in the Tropiquarium! We had the surprise of a baby albino among our baby Galapagos giant tortoises, a phenomenon that had never been seen in zoos or in the wild,” the zoo said on social media, alongside photos of the rare tortoise.

“These endangered turtles were born as part of a conservation program. These are rare and exceptional births, especially for the albino baby. This is the first time in the world that an albino Galapagos tortoise has been born and kept in captivity,” the facility added. “Albinism is rare in tortoises with about one in 100,000 individuals compared to about one in 20,000 individuals in humans.”

The zoo said the tortoises have settled into their new homes and are “doing well and very energetic.” The rare albino tortoise is out on exhibit, so zoo guests can meet the unique creature.

“With his red eyes and white shell, he’s the new Swiss mascot,” the zoo said.

The albino baby hatched on May 1 after its mother laid five eggs on Feb. 11, Reuters reported. reported. The other baby hatched on May 5. According to the zoo, the species has a low success rate for reproduction.

“After several months of incubation, we had the chance to see the first hatching, it was the second hatching in the Servion’s Tropiquarium, we already had one last year, this is the second,” Thomas Morel, a Tropiquarium staff member, told the outlet. “We were quite surprised by the tortoise’s color. It can happen at birth, but after two days, we were sure it was an albino when it pointed the tip of its head, so it was really surprising for this species, it’s quite extraordinary.

June 8 World Oceans Day

Today is: World Oceans Day

JOIN US

This year’s United Nations World Oceans Day, on 8 June 2022, will highlight the theme Revitalization: Collective Action for the Ocean.

This is the first hybrid celebration of the annual event, hosted in-person at the UN Headquarters in New York and broadcast live.

The ocean connects, sustains, and supports us all. Yet its health is at a tipping point and so is the well-being of all that depends on it. As the past years have shown us, we need to work together to create a new balance with the ocean that no longer depletes its bounty but instead restores its vibrancy and brings it new life.

Join us as we shed light on the communities, ideas, and solutions that are working together to protect and revitalize the ocean and everything it sustains.

UN World Oceans Day 2022 is Hosted by the United Nations Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea, Office of Legal Affairs, with the generouse contribution of Oceanic Global, which is made possible by La Mer.

Gardening by June’s 2022 Moon Phases – Printable

Please read this first:

1) Moon Phase x Moon Zodiac Sign:

Please keep in mind, that Gardening by Moon Phase and Gardening by Moon Zodiac Sign are two different/independent biodynamic systems and they might give you different or contradictiory gardening recommendations.

  • a) Each Moon Phase (except Full Moon and New Moon) lasts about 1 week
  • b) Each Moon Zodiac Sign lasts about 2.5 days

Try to experiment with these two systems to find which recommendations suits you the most.

2) Tropical (Astrological) x Sidereal (Astronomical) Zodiac:

(1-2 days difference in Leaf, Fruit, Root and Flower days)

There are two different zodiacs for determining the Moon Sign:

  • a) Tropical zodiac (Astrological) is based on the seasons – Vernal Equinox is fixed as 0° Aries (The 1st Fruit day)
  • b) Sidereal zodiac (Astronomical) takes into account Precession of Equinoxes and shifts 0° Aries back by cca 1-2 days. Maria Thun who was an authority on biodynamics was using this Sidereal zodiac

Try to experiment also with these two zodiac systems to find which system suits you better.

Why Is Self-Reflection So Essential Now?

Why Is Self-Reflection One of the Most Important Things You Can Do Now?

Collectively and individually, we’re living through a MAJOR transformation.

Perhaps you’ve noticed?

We are living in the transition between ages, and waves and waves of light and cosmic energy are flooding onto the planet right now.

This time has long been foretold in a variety of spiritual lineages, teachings, and cultures.

We are transitioning out of the Kali Yuga (Age of Darkness) into the Satya Yuga (Age of Truth).

These are Sanskrit words… But know that this time has not only been prophesied about by the Vedics, but also the Toltecs, Mayans, Essenes, and so many more wise lineages and traditions.

We’re in transition and preparation times, for a HUGE Shift.. The awakening of Gaia Mother Earth (and humanity) to a whole new level.

For Millions of years, Gaia’s consciousness has been in a sort of slumber, a sleep state.

This gave humanity the opportunity to play out distorted “games” of separation, war, destruction, suffering and lack – all consciously and unconsciously chosen through free will.

But this is now beginning to shift. Gaia is waking up, and …

In Case You Missed the Lunar Eclipse on May 15 Nothern Hemisphere/16 Southern Hemisphere

What You Need to Know about the Lunar Eclipse

What is a lunar eclipse?

lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth, and Moon align so that the Moon passes into Earth’s shadow. In a total lunar eclipse, the entire Moon falls within the darkest part of Earth’s shadow, called the umbra. When the Moon is within the umbra, it will turn a reddish hue. Lunar eclipses are sometimes called “Blood Moons” because of this phenomenon.

How can I observe the eclipse?

You don’t need any special equipment to observe a lunar eclipse, although binoculars or a telescope will enhance the view and the red color. A dark environment away from bright lights makes for the best viewing conditions.

The eastern half of the United States and all of South America will have the opportunity to see every stage of the lunar eclipse. Totality will be visible in much of Africa, western Europe, Central and South America, and most of North America.

May’s flower full moon will blossom in the sky this weekend

May’s full moon, known as the flower moon, will blossom in the sky on Sunday night into Monday.

The moon will reach its peak at 12:15 a.m. ET on Monday, May 16, so it will appear at its roundest the evening of May 15, according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The flower moon is named after the flowers that blossom this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, The Old Farmer’s Almanac said.

The lunar event is also known as the full corn planting moon because May marks the end of winter’s frost, which allows farmers to plant their seeds.

Vesak, a sacred day for Buddhists, corresponds with May’s full moon, according to the United Nations. The birth of Gautama Buddha, the moment he attained enlightenment and his death all took place on days of Vesak, according to the organization.

Stargazers will be in for a treat as the flower moon transforms into a scarlet color during the total lunar eclipse happening at the same time. A total lunar eclipse is when the sun and …

Mercury has super long, glowing tail

Mercury has a glowing dragon tail of sodium atoms that is more than seven times longer than ever suspected, scientists report.

New measurements of Mercury’s yellow-orange tail, which streams in the solar wind like the long tail of a kite, put it at more than 100 times the radius of the planet itself.

The neutral sodium atoms that make up the 2.5 million kilometre-long streamer are thought to be blasted off the surface by the sun and micro-meteor impacts. These impart enough energy to launch the atoms into space.

Other elements are also in the tail. But it’s the sodium that lights up and can be detected.

“This [sodium] ion is the ‘little atom that could’,” says Mercury researcher Dr Ann Sprague of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

It scatters photons like crazy, making it a great clue to various processes at work on and around the planet.

Shorter tail spotted before

Mercury’s tail has been spotted before, but scientists missed its great length as they were looking at too small a piece of the sky, says researcher Jeffrey Baumgardner of Boston University.

Baumgardner is the lead author of a report on Mercury’s sodium tail in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

“Our forte was wide-angle imaging,” Baumgardner says.

His team created an 8°-wide image using a telescope at McDonald Observatory in Texas that’s about 16 full-moons wide.

The actual 2° sodium tail is as long as four full moons.

In the image Mercury is blocked out because its brightness outshines the sodium tail. If Mercury were shown to scale in the image, it would be less than a pixel in diameter.

“But even so, you are limited by the sodium in Earth’s atmosphere,” says Baumgardner.

Earth’s own sodium glow is itself created by the steady supply of meteors that burn up in the atmosphere, he says.

Two sodium hot spots

To better understand how Mercury’s tail is created, Baumgardner’s team also made close-up sodium-glow images of Mercury. This revealed that the planet has two sodium hot spots, both at high latitudes.

These could be the product of the planet’s mineralogy, topography or have something to do with how the planet’s magnetic field channels in particles from the sun.

That’s similar to how Earth does the same thing and creates aurora light shows near the poles.

The secrets of these hotspots are likely to be revealed by the Messenger spacecraft, says Sprague.

Messenger made a close fly-by of the planet in January and is scheduled to settle into orbit in March 2011.

A large part of Messenger’s mission will be to map out the mineral composition of the swiftly moving planet.

Other planets have tails too

Mercury is not the only heavenly body with a sodium tail, Baumgardner says.

Neutral sodium is also seen streaming from our moon and forming a haze around Jupiter from the sodium blasted off of its tiny and hyper-volcanic moon Io.

It’s also seen blowing from comets.

Because tails are associated with rocky bodies in our solar system, they could some day help planet hunters identify rocky worlds orbiting other stars, says Sprague.

“It’s a stepping stone to understanding other planets,” he says.

The Sun Set on Mars

April 12, 2015

In this file photo from NASA, the sun sets behind the rocky terrain of Earth’s neighboring planet, Mars. The photo was taken by NASA’s Curiosity rover on April 15, 2015. The images were recorded by the Mast Camera attached to the rover. The haze in the air is martian dust still suspended in the atmosphere between dust storms. The blue hue of the image is due to the very fine dust particles being just the right size to allow blue light to penetrate the atmosphere.

A Great Website for Irish Pagan Information

I have been following this website Irish Pagan School for about two years and have taken a couple of courses through them about Irish Celtic Paganism. The first course I took was on Ogham and even though I have been reading ogham Staves for years I learned somethings I was doing wrong that would affect a reading and some new ways to go about using the Ogham alphabet. Their courses are do not cost a lot for the information you can gain plus you can go back to the material time and time again.  You will get almost daily information usually in the form of a video through youtube.com. You can find the list of a variety of topics here by Irish Pagan School Videos I highly recommend watching a few if you are all interested in Celtic Paganism. Even with their Irish accent they are easy to understand.

Yesterday’s email announced a new way to gain information and I am really looking forward to listening to their podcasts. Here is the email I received including the link for the podcasts.
