Gemini yesterday love horoscope:

Thursday 27th of June 2019

It’s perhaps by knowing what you don’t want with matters of the heart that you’re able to successfully narrow down what does matter most to you. This can be inspiring in more ways than one, especially if it encourages you to look more closely at romantic relationship dreams that have, until now, appeared far-fetched. Your heart not only wants what it wants, but it’s determined to spur you on to turn dreams into something tantalizingly tangible!

Taurus Daily Love Horoscope

Taurus today’s love horoscope:

Friday 28th of June 2019

Even if you’re a traditional Taurean who goes to great lengths to resist change, you could be willing to embrace it with open arms at this time. If your heart urges you to explore unfamiliar romantic or relationship territory, or possibly take a risk that you might not normally take in the name of love, then you can benefit from paying attention to its message. Resisting change could be futile, but at least it can be on your terms.

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 29th of June 2019

Although you could feel unsure about how to get certain momentum underway in your emotional world, you could be surprised at what commences by taking a brave step. This isn’t a time to allow doubts to hold you back. Rather than focus on what might happen, focus instead on what can happen because listening to your heart and taking a bold step in the name of love brings you significantly closer to your passionate dreams now.

Taurus yesterday love horoscope:

Thursday 27th of June 2019

You could be noticeably aware of what feels restrictive or inhibitive in your emotional world or a love relationship. Whether this involves the environment that love is trying to flourish within or emotional baggage connected with the past, space needs to be made and possibly in more than one way. Whether you’re single or attached, the romantic relationship plans you have for the future need a space to manifest properly. Make that your cosmic mission where affairs of the heart are concerned.

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Aries today’s love horoscope:

Friday 28th of June 2019

Although there could be plenty to discuss and decisions to be made with matters of the heart, it’s by encouraging a light-hearted vibe in your emotional world that the most reassuring progress can be made. If possible, push aside a serious issue that may have been a bone of contention between you and your paramour recently. The cosmos encourages more sexy fun and frivolity in a love connection now, and both you and someone special can benefit by responding positively to its request!

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 29th of June 2019

Although your efforts to create a greater sense of stability on the home or work fronts could produce results, the same passionate energy is unlikely to bring pleasing developments with matters of the heart at this time. Regardless of what might be going to plan in other areas, a different level of effort and spontaneity is needed to bring heart-warming developments – or make a good impression on a particular person. Try not to micromanage love at this time.

Aries yesterday love horoscope:

Thursday 27th of June 2019

A change you’re keen to introduce to your emotional world or a special connection doesn’t – and shouldn’t – involve levels of upheaval and chaos that you could be keen to invite. In fact, if it’s security, stability, or comfort you crave, then all the above could be found within your current love life circumstances. What – or who – you want could be more readily available to you then you realize.

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Aquarius today’s love horoscope:

Friday 28th of June 2019

Something in your emotional world or connected with a special relationship could feel painfully repetitive. If you’re attached, then you could find yourself going over old ground with a lover that you sense is not only unnecessary but time-wasting. If you’re single, then you could feel weary from having to continue applying the consistent effort that you probably feel should have brought results by now. For now, keep the faith and continue to be persistent without being impatient – or insensitive.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Saturday 29th of June 2019

A stable and predictable kind of romance might be preferable to anything unpredictable or spontaneous at this time. Your idea about what relaxation means to you could differ from what a loved one wants or needs. You could probably do without the frills or anything superfluous in your emotional world now. It’s by keeping things simple that you can recharge your emotional batteries in ways that will make you receptive to spontaneous developments once they present themselves.

Aquarius yesterday love horoscope:

Thursday 27th of June 2019

It may be unlike you to want something in your emotional world or a close relationship to unfold strictly to a plan, but it’s possible you’re setting expectations or cling to assumptions that you are to be more relaxed about. Focusing too intently on both can take your eye off what’s delightful and potentially magical unfolding in front of your eyes. This is a time to release preconceived notion and allow one or two surprising, sexy developments to restore your faith in luck and serendipity!

Pisces LovePisces today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Something that becomes more demanding or possibly time-consuming on your part could have a knock-on effect to affairs of the heart or a special relationship. It might be something you see as manageable, but a loved one or someone sees differently. If circumstances dictate that your focus may need to shift elsewhere briefly, then there are benefits to making this clear. What you do or undertake now, you do with someone’s best interests in mind, and that’s what matters.

Pisces tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

Your emotional world or a cherished connection could benefit from warm rays of sunshine permeating either or both. However, you could be inclined to look into the shadows and focus more on the darker aspects of your love life or a special relationship. This creates negative energy that can become stronger if it’s allowed to get a foothold. Focus instead on adopting an attitude of gratitude toward all that you have to be appreciative of where affairs of the heart are concerned. Plenty of intriguing options exist if you’re willing to spot them.

Pisces yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

What gets put in place at this time has a strong connection with the future, and that’s where your focus appears to be. If your heart encourages you to make a move or long-term decision, then step forward confidently.

Capricorn tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

You could prove anyone wrong who believes that logic and practicality can’t create something magical when it comes to affairs of the heart. You could experience a creative breakthrough in your emotional world or one a special connection, but it will be due to your ability to remain grounded end apply the most sensible plan of action to your current love life circumstances that can achieve it. Magic doesn’t always need spontaneity to manifest.

Capricorn yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

It could be easy to see the object of your affections as obstructive or going out of their way to be negative or gloomy. However, it’s also possible you’re focused intently on something that matters to you and aren’t considering the reasons behind a loved one’s attitude or behavior. You might need to make more of an effort to see a shared situation realistically. Encouraging the one you love to offer their input could be a good place to start.

Sagittarius Daily Love Horoscope

Sagittarius LoveSagittarius today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

There are benefits to knowing when enough has been said to the object of your affections – and knowing as well when to let what has been said be absorbed and understood. Your keenness to make a point could involve you going to unnecessary and excessive lengths to do so. Your ability to be as good at listening as you are talking won’t be unappreciated by someone close now.

Sagittarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

It could be by connecting with your curious and optimistic qualities that you can transform something in your emotional world or one special connection from being tedious to potentially thrilling. Although you can’t inject your unique brand of spontaneity to every aspect of your love life, you could experience revelations that can quickly turn something mundane into something magical.

Sagittarius yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Something connected to your emotional world or love life could become complex due to an assumption being accepted as a fact. What may have started as solid and undeniable could develop into something speculative, and an open discussion with a loved one or potential partner may be needed to bring the truth back into the equation.

Scorpio Daily Love Horoscope

Scorpio LoveScorpio today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

A door that may have been shut in your emotional world for some time could reopen now or shortly. As an obstacle to romantic or relationship progress becomes removed, it’s possible a new level of collaboration with a loved one holds more promise or potential than you thought it did. Your relationship with a special individual might never be the same again – but the new era commencing promises that this will be for all the right reasons!

Scorpio tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

You could feel understandably frustrated if you’re trying to make a point to a loved one or a potential partner but feel that your efforts fall on deaf ears. However, your desire to be listened to could be so intense that it creates complications in your relationship rather than helps it. Try to take the high road, even if a difference of opinion exists between you and your paramour. You have passionate energy that could be applied in much more positive and pleasurable ways.

Scorpio yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

You might be aware of how you see a proverbial glass as half full while a loved one or someone close is determined to see it as half empty. The shift in their attitude you’d like to see will need to come from them, and you may need to make clear the limits that exist regarding how willing you are to be subjected to their negative thinking. Encouraging an attitude of gratitude on both sides can banish pessimism before it becomes too deep-rooted.

Libra Daily Love Horoscope

Libra LoveLibra today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Thinking bigger and bolder about what you want to achieve and who you want at your side can boost levels of excitement and inspiration in your emotional world or one special connection. You’re encouraged to broaden your horizons and if you feel inspired to learn, explore or discover, then so too will a loved one or close companion. Embarking upon a learning or mind-broadening experience will be better if done together rather than solo.

Libra tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

It could be your ability to see your emotional world or a special connection from a broader perspective that helps you to gain a more accurate understanding of where it’s heading. If you’re attached, then you may see changing circumstances in a way your lover doesn’t. Whether single or attached, the spontaneous revelations that come your way at this time can be integral to achieving one important and potentially heart-warming goal.

Libra yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

You don’t need to go to considerable lengths to impress a loved one or potential partner – especially in a material sense. What they’d probably like to see is you taking a matter as seriously as they do. If a financial angle exists with this, then offer suggestions about how money needn’t play an integral part in the fun you can create and enjoy together. Identifying ways to cut back on unnecessary expenses could bring a pleasing result, too.

Virgo Daily Love Horoscope

Virgo LoveVirgo today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

What has been vague or on a shaky footing with matters of the heart could come under scrutiny as you feel a stronger need for stability and certainty in your emotional life. This might be the result of starting to ‘think bigger’ about what you want from a love relationship and how what’s ill-defined can benefit from becoming more certain. For some Virgos, it may be time for a relationship to deepen or move to a delightfully new level.

Virgo tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

As intriguing or possibly thrilling as a plan or adventure you’re considering embarking upon with a loved one may be, you might need to give thought to covering more bases than you anticipated. Your plan needs to be considered from more than one angle which involves asking yourself certain questions and possibly having a conversation with a loved one about what both of you want. Before you take a step you’re considering, allow a bit more information to come to you. It’s likely to find you.

Virgo yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Might overreacting or responding overly sensitively to a certain situation add to drama or tension unnecessarily? You could believe you’re reacting or responding appropriately but taking a step back and being honest about where you may be making assumptions can reveal reasons to feel appreciative or reassured, not defensive. Focus solely on facts, and you’ll find them.

Leo Daily Love Horoscope

Leo LoveLeo today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

You could be aware of how deep feelings and passions could replace uncertainty in your emotional world or one special connection now. If you’re a single Leo wishing you shared a deep bond, then you could have options that rely on removing yourself from usual or familiar surroundings. Whether single or attached, travel or exploring new places can boost your romantic prospects wonderfully.

Leo tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

If you’ve set unrealistic expectations regarding your love life for one special relationship, then coming events could encourage you to reassess them practically. Rather than focus on all that’s dreamy and fanciful, you may need to connect with your inner logic and apply a realistic attitude toward what your heart wants and what’s within your ability to achieve

Leo yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Your time and focus could be diverted from your love life or one special connection, and a loved one will likely make it clear if they feel you’re taking on too many responsibilities in other areas. If this involves you pursuing a certain aspiration or group effort outside the sphere of your connection, then you may need to be realistic about the demands on your time this will require.

Cancer Daily Love Horoscope

Cancer LoveCancer today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

If you or your paramour have struggled to find a work life/love life balance recently, then this could be an issue that might need to become tenser briefly before action can be taken to restore balance. Career responsibilities can’t be shirked but remember what all work and no play did to someone named Jack. You and a loved one can help each other to adopt more of a ‘work to live’ rather than ‘live to work’ attitude now.

Cancer tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

You might regard a commitment made to a loved one or someone special as open-ended, but they could see it as a cast-iron promise made. It might be necessary for you to treat this as a priority because the object of your affections could hold you to your word. If rearranging your diary or schedule is necessary to accommodate this obligation, then you may need to be creative and flexible with doing so.

Cancer yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Don’t be fearful or suspicious of change emerging in your emotional world or a close relationship. What’s shifting or altering has likely needed to do so for some time and can help free you from an aspect of the past or something that has been deeply entrenched in a comfort zone for too long. This could bring balance to a love connection that you’ve been unable to achieve on your own -and could also be a change you’re likely to welcome.

Gemini Daily Love Horoscope

Gemini LoveGemini today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

If you’re a single Gemini, then you could be increasingly aware of how delightful romantic opportunities probably won’t arrive out of the blue or on their own. If you’re to enjoy a deeper level of romantic fulfillment, then you may need to be more willing to make yourself available and possibly take someone up on their offer of assistance or support. Regardless of your relationship status, progress with matters of the heart relies on coming from you now.

Gemini tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

If you feel as if a fire has been lit within you or something has boosted your mojo wonderfully, then this could be something you want to share with a loved one or potential partner. Magic could be synchronizing wonderfully between you and a certain person. Whether single or attached, the road ahead to a deeper level of passionate fulfillment could be straighter and clearer than it has appeared for some time.

Gemini yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Romantic conversations or exchanges could be prone to misinterpretation, and this might be due to skimming the surface of certain topics rather than engaging in open and honest exchanges. The more upfront you’re willing to be, the more likely it will be that a lover or potential partner will reciprocate. Removing any assumptions that might exist on both sides by agreeing to deal only with facts will ensure any discussions remain calm and manageable.

Taurus Daily Love Horoscope

Taurus LoveTaurus today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Certain tedious romantic or relationship routines could drain your energy and enthusiasm, but your vision of your love life future is becoming stronger and deserves as much faith and effort as you can give it. Mundane matters will always need attention, but you’re able to draw deeper levels of motivation and inspiration from what’s occurring with affairs of the heart now. Whether single or attached, this is a time to be experimental, brave, and aim high!

Taurus tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

Turbulence or disruption in your emotional world or within a special connection could take the form of a loved one not showing you respect you deserve or making you feel unappreciated. This could feel more frustrating or confusing if you know that you’ve applied plenty of diligence to keep things harmonious and buoyant between you. Chances are, this removes you from any fault, so make sure you don’t create reasons to blame yourself or believe an apology must come from you. Neither likely applies.

Taurus yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

Putting the spark back into a relationship could be surprisingly easily with a bit more two-way willingness to communicate. You may have grown weary with a routine a loved one believed to be necessary and could discover scope exists to inject spontaneity where it’s needed. Something you and your paramour regard as tiresome can become fun once again if you put your heads together to share ideas about what constitutes ‘fun.’

Aries Daily Love Horoscope

Aries LoveAries today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Your passionate intensity can be powerfully sexy but could require you to show a bit of restraint, especially as you could be at risk of coming on too strong or releasing an avalanche of emotions someone’s direction. As much as what you might feel toward a certain person is growing in intensity, romantic or relationship progress relies on your ability to control it.

Aries tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

Be honest about your reasons regarding the lengths you’re prepared to go to impress a loved one or potential partner at this time. Demonstrating or proving love with a grand material gesture could be far removed from what a loved one wants or expects. With imagination and a modicum of creativity, you could convey what’s on your mind or in your heart in ways that are much more practical, memorable, and pleasurable.

Aries yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

You might see a loved one’s keenness for you to handle or manage something in your relationship as one-sided. Rather than make your displeasure or concerns known negatively, you can increase your paramour’s input and assistance by encouraging a more balanced division of effort. It might be an issue surrounding their confidence that needs to be addressed and overcome first.

Aquarius Daily Love Horoscope

Aquarius LoveAquarius today’s love horoscope:

Wednesday 12th of June 2019

Your sense of fun and adventure could be ignited, and as keen as you may be to throw caution to the wind and whisk a loved one away somewhere or embark on a physical or mental journey, a restriction could create a hurdle with plans made now. You might not be able to overcome this hampering influence immediately, but connecting with your ability to improvise can create a very pleasing alternative.

Aquarius tomorrow love horoscope:

Thursday 13th of June 2019

If you feel extra-sentimental at this time, then this can be a positive experience rather than one that causes you to feel melancholy. It could be by reconnecting with memories or lessons of love learned in the past that can bring a sense of stability or grounding that helps you feel more optimistic about both the present and the future. Once this happens, it’s time to start looking forward once again

Aquarius yesterday love horoscope:

Tuesday 11th of June 2019

It’s possible something connected with your emotional world or a love relationship could benefit from a reality check. You may be aware of momentum increasing in a manageable and potentially delightful way, and a wave of optimism and enthusiasm could soon replace any sense of pessimism. However, you’re encouraged to slow down briefly to ensure you have an accurate understanding of what’s shifting. What’s unfolding now could need both of you to steer it.

Daily Horoscope June 13th

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Because something unexpected could impact banking, inheritances, shared property or the wealth of your partner – stay on top of things. Don’t be caught napping. Meanwhile, this interruption could be (or not) related to some kind of confusion going on at home or within the family. Oy!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might do something that disrupts your relationship with a partner or close friend or vice versa, they might do something from your point of view. They might want more freedom in the relationship? Meanwhile, you are a bit uncertain about how much you should assert yourself today. Should you?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your work routine will be interrupted today. For some of you however, this could mean an interruption that is related to your pet. Whatever the case, stay on top of things. If you feel confused about something financially or something that you own – do nothing. Don’t act until you’re sure.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Parents should be vigilant about their kids today because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Meanwhile, social plans might be delayed or cancelled. Likewise, romance might suffer from a few upsets or surprises, especially if someone wants to redefine the relationship. (Whaaat?)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be patient with family members today, especially a female relative, because people are excitable today. A family discussion could suddenly balloon into something no one expects. Maybe someone wants to change the rules or how things are done? Steady as she goes.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Pay attention to everything you say and do today because this is a potentially accident-prone day for you. It might be a verbal accident or a physical accident. Obviously, if you are alert and mindful, you don’t have to encounter any accident. Stay tuned!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Keep an eye on your money and resources today because something unexpected might impact your assets. You might find money; you might lose money. Protect your possessions against loss, theft or damage. Don’t push issues with bosses today because you’re not entirely sure what you’re doing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the Moon is in your sign opposite wild, wacky Uranus. This means you’re in for some sort of emotional surprise. It also means you want to seek excitement and stimulation today – “No bores allowed!” Freedom of action and freedom of speech are important to you today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is not an ideal day to defend your best interest in disputes about shared property, inheritances and such because you will not be able to put 100% of yourself behind your argument. Wait for another time when you are more confident, focused and ready to stand your ground.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A friend might surprise you today, probably a female. They might say or do something you least expect. Or they might suggest something unusual. Or perhaps you will meet someone new who is different or avant-garde? It’s not a boring day. Don’t fall for convincing words.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don’t be defiant or rebellious when talking to bosses, parents, VIPs or the police today, which you might be tempted to do. This will not be in your best interests. Remember your objective: what you want is whatever is in your own best interests. Therefore, bite your tongue before you responding.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Travel plans might change today. This is also a mildly, accident-prone day for you so be smart and stay mindful and alert. Meanwhile, don’t get caught up in arguments about politics, religion and racial issues because they will get out of hand. Sheesh!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Malcolm McDowell (1943) shares your birthday today. You are enthusiastic, curious and energetic in your approach to life. This is a year of teaching and learning. You might learn something profound that sets you in a new direction that is crucial for your success next year. Start to explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that will help you to get a better understanding of who you are.

Being An Upside Down Witch – for those Living in the Southern Hemisphere

Goddess Pages
British spiritual magazine

Living in Australia – or anywhere in the southern hemisphere for that matter – can be a little confusing for a witch. All the books about magic print elemental correspondences that are back to front (the fire of the sun is certainly not in the south down here!), and list dates for the sabbats that bear no relation to the actual cycle of our seasons. I’ve met a surprising number of people from the US and UK who didn’t realise that our seasons are six months behind (or ahead, depending on how you look at it) the northern ones. Our Midsummer falls around December 20-23, when the north is blanketed in snow, while our winter solstice falls around June 20-23, the height of summer up there.
Perhaps long ago we may have followed the oft-printed dates and celebrated these rituals along with our northern friends, linking up psychically in December to celebrate Yule and welcome the birth of the sun god, even as here he was about to start fading as summer reached its peak, or doing autumn rituals of harvest and release while our land was quickening with the new growth of spring.
But I don’t know of a single southern witch who follows the northern model. At coven rituals, open celebrations and alone at home, groups and solitary practitioners follow our own seasonal cycle, because paganism and goddess worship are intimately attuned to the heartbeat of the planet and the seasons, and these festivals are prescribed by the movement of the earth in relation to the sun, not a fixed date on a modern calendar. The land, as the embodiment of the goddess, speaks to all of us, and the goddess path is about learning to hear this language of nature, to sense the movement and emotional shifts as the earth moves through its cycles, and feel the rhythm of its turning. And so a spring fertility festival will be marked in spring, when the planet is alive with new life and energy, regardless of what is happening on that day in the other hemisphere.
There has been mention in these pages that it is wrong to import “northern” festivals to the southern lands. But celebrating the beauty and bounty of nature and the dance of the seasons is not anyone’s exclusive right. Maybe people in the Celtic lands can feel historically possessive of the names themselves (Lughnasadh, Beltane), but they have no ownership of the winter solstice or the first day of spring, and this is what these festivals are.
The Wheel of the Year reflects the constant universal cycle of life, death and rebirth. Mythologically it is tied to the story of the god and goddess as she shifts from young lover to mother to crone, and he is born, grows in power, sacrifices himself then is reborn, but literally it refers to the changing seasons – the fertility and vibrant life force of summer, the balance and harvest of autumn, the introspection and endings (death) of winter, and the rebirth of spring. Being in the southern hemisphere doesn’t necessarily change this seasonal pattern, it merely shifts the dates. There are parts of Australia such as the Red Centre – and parts of the northern hemisphere too – where the seasons don’t play out in a standard, balanced rhythm through summer, autumn, winter and spring. Some places experience just two main seasons, wet and dry, yet even there the people living in harmony with the land are able to feel the earth as it surges with new life, grows, becomes ready for harvest then withdraws its energy within the earth again, and celebrate their own personal Wheel that reflects their reality.
But in much of the coastal region of the country, where around eighty per cent of the population is based, the seasons do follow a regular pattern, and many witches celebrate the traditional Wheel of the Year, moved forward six months to reflect their personal experience. Of course it can seem a little strange and out of whack sometimes, because the Christians hijacked so many of the magical sabbats and they have become such a part of western life. So how and when do we celebrate the turning points of the witches’ year Down Under, and how do we deal with the inconsistencies of modern festivities?

The Summer Solstice
As the western world gears up for Christmas and northern witches mark Yule, in the southern hemisphere we are celebrating the summer solstice. In 2008 this fell on December 21, and in 2009 it will fall on December 22. This is Midsummer Day, when the sun reaches its southernmost latitude before it turns and heads back towards the north. In some ways it would be easier to celebrate Yule during this festive season, as our northern hemisphere counterparts do, when everyone is feasting, exchanging gifts and acknowledging the birth of the son of God – or the sun god. But Down Under this is the longest, not shortest, day of the year. The sun is strong (some would say merciless), and the energy is fast and active. It’s a time of abundance, achievement and culmination. Despite the snow-covered decorations, men sweating in Santa suits and hot roast dinners – a legacy of our ancestors – on this day we absorb the solar energy, feast on luscious summer fruits, give thanks for the goals we’ve reached and revel in the strength and heat of the long day of sunshine and the power of the sun god.
Sometimes I go to the beach at dawn and watch the sun rise over the ocean, or climb the hill in the park near my house at sunset, farewelling it as it begins its journey back to northern parts, and its energy starts to wane from this day forward as it begins its descent into the dark half of the year. Sometimes I do a formal ritual with a group, or have a feast of celebration with my magical friends, wrapping pots of sunshiney flowers and summer herbs in gold and red velvet as gifts, and breathe in the scent of orange blossoms, lavender and rosemary. I celebrate Christmas with my family too, but I see no conflict here, as the modern version has little to do with the real Yule in intent or meaning, and I’m quite happy to honour the power of the summer solstice and then a few days later enjoy the spirit of giving of the festive season.

Lughnasadh
In the first week of February we celebrate Lughnasadh, the cross-quarter day that marks the end of summer and the first day of autumn, although where I live it will still be hot and fiery for some time to come. In the north it’s Imbolc, linked to fertility, love and Valentine’s Day, but down here it’s the opposite. The earth is still throbbing with life and energy, but it’s mature, fully ripened and almost over-abundant. This is the first harvest festival, and fruit picking becomes a popular form of employment for many travellers, with farms all over the country taking on seasonal workers. The grape harvest begins, to make the wine that is now internationally renowned, and an abundance of other delicious fruits and vegetables, as well as golden wheat and other cereal crops, are also picked at this time.
As well as a time of feasting and of thanksgiving for the life-giving properties of our crops, and recognition of the cycle of sowing and reaping, Lughnasadh is also about the symbolic things we grow and create in our life. It’s a day of harvesting the fruits of our labours and acknowledging our successes and what we’ve achieved in the past year. A month after New Year’s resolutions are made, it seems a good time to take stock. On this day I perform a ritual to celebrate and acknowledge the goals I’ve reached, making a list of all the things I’ve gained – the gifts I’ve been given, the new talents I’ve developed, the friends I’ve made, the experiences I’ve had, the healings I’ve received, the opportunities I’ve pursued – and giving thanks for it all. We may no longer be so connected to the creation and production of our food, as in days gone by, or believe that our prayers or sacrifices influence the success of the crops, but being grateful for what we have and giving thanks is still a beautiful way to live. I also try to pass on some of my good fortune so the energy of abundance continues and is strengthened, by giving time or money to a charity of some kind.

Autumn Equinox
Late March is another strange time for Down Under witches, because the stores are filled with chocolate bunnies and eggs in preparation for Easter, the Christian holiday based on the spring festival of Ostara, which northern hemisphere witches are marking now. While most of the world – both pagan and non-magical – celebrates rebirth, resurrection and new life with the fertility goddess Ostara’s symbols of eggs and hares, in Australia it’s the middle of autumn, a time of crisp, chilly mornings, pale blue skies and a world aflame with colour as the trees turn a hundred shades of red-orange-yellow-brown. Daylight savings ends, and from the autumn equinox onwards, which this year falls on March 20, the days start getting shorter and the weather cooler, but this day of equal light and dark is the moment of balance in nature and within – a time of harmony, joy and gentle calm. While I certainly eat my share of chocolate eggs at this time, acknowledging on some level the energy of Ostara, I also prepare a harvest feast of richly coloured fruits and root vegetables, golden grains and heavy warm breads, and start drying my herbs. I feel immense joy as I skip through the crackling autumn leaves and chart the turning of the seasons by the patterns of leaves on the trees. I give thanks for my metaphorical harvest, honouring my achievements, experiences and wisdom in a way that feels right to me, be it with a big celebration or a personal ritual of gratitude. It’s a time of balance – my world is poised between summer and winter, and day and night are in harmony, which is reflected in the earth’s energy and within me.

Samhain
In the first week of May we celebrate the cross-quarter day that marks the end of autumn and the beginning of the coldness and dark of winter. In the north it’s all hot, fertile love energy, with abundant blossoms, the hatching of birds, bees pollinating flowers and lovers leaping the Beltane fires. But in the southern hemisphere at this time it’s the opposite. It’s the start of winter, a season of introspection and darkness both metaphorically and literally. Traditionally this was the time to store food for the cold barren months ahead; symbolically it’s about rest and renewal, of preparing for what’s ahead and withdrawing a little to conserve your energy. While the grass becomes green and lush at this time with the onset of rain, many of the trees are stripped bare, and bitterly cold winds add to the starkness of the season. This is the time we start readying ourselves for the rebirth we’ll experience at Yule, a time of inner reflection and contemplation, of studying the Mysteries (of our tradition or our life), and scrying for answers and illumination. It’s also the night when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest, and we honour our ancestors and commune with the dead. Of course southern witches do find it hard to explain to people that we are celebrating “Halloween” at this time, but if you pay attention to the earth, to nature, to the seasons, it’s very clear that this is our Samhain.

The Winter Solstice
In late June we celebrate the winter solstice; this year it will fall on the 21st. This is our midwinter – the longest night and shortest day of the year, when the sun is as far north as it will get, making it midsummer in the northern hemisphere. Snow falls in some parts of Australia, and in others it’s cold and rainy. Even in the Red Centre, where winter is their dry season, nature is introspective at this time – the seeds are all closed up, waiting for the heat and rainfall of summer to explode into life. Winter, and this midpoint in particular, is a time to rest and reflect, to acknowledge sadness and loss – of dreams, of friendships, of parts of your self – and conserve your energy and life force.
Yet it’s a day of hope too, for the solstice is the turning point in this time of darkness, introspection and dreaming. Considered the dark night of the soul that gives birth to the creative spark, it marks the period when the dark half of the year relinquishes its hold to the light half. From this day forward the days slowly start to lengthen, the sun becomes stronger and the energy within and without increases and builds. On Midwinter’s Night Eve I light a candle to symbolise the sun and its activating energy, and list my dreams for the coming year. Sometimes I stay up all night to await the return of the light, other years I get up for the sunrise and toast the dawn and give thanks for this energetic reawakening. As the sun is reborn I open myself up to the promise of new growth and achievement, the energy of renewal and the rebirth of my own self and creativity.
I’m more inclined to refer to this festival as Winter Solstice rather than Yule, because the latter has connotations of Christmas, which is still six months away for us, yet many southern witches retain the traditional name, particularly in colder areas where open fires and Yule logs are more typical. Interestingly, there is now increasing recognition in Australia that Christmas is based on a winter tradition that involves magic, and many mainstream events are planned to coincide with our winter solstice. The Pagan Awareness Network holds Hollyfrost, an annual Midwinter retreat and ritual, and in the Blue Mountains the Winter Magic Festival is held on the day of the solstice and is open to everyone, regardless of beliefs. And the more touristy than magical Yulefest and Christmas in July are also celebrated around this time, in recognition that here Yule should not take place in December, in the heat of the Australian summer, but in the cool of winter.

Imbolc
In the first week of August, we in the southern hemisphere honour the cross-quarter day that marks the end of winter and the first day of spring. The earth starts to shake off the severity of the cold period and emerge back into the light. Some of our stunning wildflowers, like the delicate golden wattle, explode into glorious bloom, and it’s a time of hope, renewal and fresh starts after winter’s sluggishness. The sun starts to strengthen and the days grow longer, symbolising the return and renewal of the life force of the land and its people. Energetically it’s a time of awakening and new energy, and is the day we sow the seeds of what we want to achieve in the coming year. It’s also a time of purification and cleansing after the long dark of winter, when I feel motivated to physically clean my house and energetically clear my space, sweeping out old energy and thoughts so the new can thrive. Imbolc represents new beginnings, initiations and inspiration, and the budding plants, swooping baby birds and buzzing bees always fill me with vitality, passion and the impetus to start (or rededicate myself to) new projects.

The Spring Equinox
In the southern hemisphere, the spring or vernal equinox falls in late September – this year it’s on the 23rd. It’s a beautiful time of year, with bright blue skies and pale sunshine without the merciless heat of summer… perfect temperate weather. It’s one of only two times of the year when the length of day and night is equal, and on a personal level it’s a time of balance and harmony too, of union between the physical and spiritual as the balance of universal energies is reflected within. It’s also a time of growth and fertility, when crops are sown, the buds on the trees open, birds build nests and lay eggs and new life is celebrated. Energetically it’s also a very fertile time, as the seeds we sowed of our goals begin to sprout and gain momentum. Traditionally the spring equinox is tied up with rabbits, eggs and fertility goddesses, so it does feel a bit strange to be celebrating “Easter” at this time, but the beautifully blossoming and budding earth and the wild energy and vitality make it obvious that it’s the time for it. It’s a celebration of new life, hope, passion, growth and energy, the time of year that I meditate on my metaphorical fertility and my ability to manifest dreams into reality. In many ancient cultures, including the Romans whose calendar ours is based on, the spring equinox was the first day of the year, and the sense of new hope and optimism inherent in this day remains. It hasn’t always fallen around March/September 21 – our dating is a modern invention – and there are still countries where this is the first day of the year. The Ancient Roman year began on the spring equinox, the day they called Martius 1, which is March 21 in Gregorian terms. In the modern Iranian calendar, used in Iran and Afghanistan, each new year begins on the spring equinox as precisely determined by astronomical observations from Tehran and Kabul (making it the perfect solar calendar, because each calendar year corresponds exactly to the solar year, with no leap days necessary). The Baha’i calendar also begins on the spring equinox.
I got married on September 22 – our spring equinox – a few years ago, so we celebrate our anniversary on Ostara each year. Yet we ran away and wed in the northern hemisphere, which means where we were that day was actually the autumn equinox. Thus each year as we celebrate our anniversary at home, in the springtime, we also acknowledge the energy of autumn. I add a few autumn colours to my spring bouquet, and consider not only what seeds we want to plant for the next year of our relationship, but what we have harvested over the previous one. As Mabon and Ostara are the two days of the year when all is balanced, within and without, they are both good days to renew commitments or pledge a new one, be it a vow of love, magic, career or anything else. I feel like I incorporated the best of both worlds by making my wedding day span both festivals.

Beltane
In the southern hemisphere, the first week of November brings the cross-quarter day that marks the end of spring and the start of the heat and energy of summer, and the festival of love. It’s a time of lovers and spells to attract love, and celebrating the fertility of life, not just physically, but also of our dreams and ambitions. Symbolically this day marks the igniting of the fires of creativity and passion, of the fertility of our desires being made manifest, as the universe bursts with a raw energy and power that we can tap in to simply by breathing it in.
In the northern hemisphere Beltane falls around May Day, and while it has no relevance to us in terms of timing, I have been part of a coven ritual that involved a maypole dance, to represent the union of god and goddess at this point in the Wheel of the Seasonal Year. I’ve also leapt over the Beltane fires, although that was before I met my husband, when I jumped over it with friends as part of a personal ritual of purification and preparation, leaping out of my past, burning away the relationship issues that had kept my heart closed, and towards a future where love was possible (I met my partner two months later).
While I’ve been known to dress up as a vampire or a fairy and go to a Halloween party on October 31, privately or with coven members or witchie friends I’m celebrating the new blossoms and the vitality and fertility of Beltane at this time.

So, while it’s perhaps a little easier for northern hemisphere goddess worshippers to celebrate the cycle of the seasons, given that so many of them are actually woven into “normal” life, when you tune in to the earth and the rhythms of nature it is easy to know when it’s the right time to celebrate any of the old festivals. Because whether you live in the north, where they began, or the south, adding your own personal meaning to the traditional forms of celebration, the sabbats are still relevant to our lives. Even today, when we no longer live in harmony with the earth’s rhythms or agricultural cycles, modern pagans celebrate the Wheel of the Year as an honouring of nature and an acknowledgement of the continuing cycle of life, death and rebirth, both literally and symbolically. Becoming aware of the seasonal shifts and the patterns of nature wherever you live, and celebrating these ancient but still relevant festivals, is a simple way to tap in to the magic of the universe and harness it for your own growth. We may no longer grow our own grain or purify the fields with fire, but these celebrations still have power, particularly in the symbolic form – planting the seeds of our dreams in the metaphorical spring, watching them grow and manifest in the world before we give thanks for our literal harvest, then allowing the things that no longer serve us to die off or be released in our own personal winter, then starting all over again with new dreams as we celebrate our own rebirth.
I’ve spent a few sabbats in the northern hemisphere, leaping the Beltane fires in Glastonbury’s Chalice Well Gardens, sitting inside the Great Pyramid on the morning of the summer solstice, watching the sun set over the Hill of Tara at Lughnasadh, and the energy of each season is intense, real and tangible no matter which hemisphere I am in. Whenever I celebrate these magical turning points of our planet I feel so strongly a part of the earth, at one with nature and the universe. And so, regardless of which half of the world I’m in, I always acknowledge the opposite festival as well, in some small way. Perhaps this isn’t as important for those in the north, but for me it seems right to acknowledge the turning seasons all over the world, the beautiful, gracefully balanced dance of light and dark, heat and cold, day and night, that makes up this world that we are all a part of.
We are all connected to the earth, no matter where we live, and we need to learn how to (and accept that we can) follow the seasons of nature in our own unique way, based on the rising and setting of the sun in our own home town, the cycles of the moon as it crosses our part of the sky, and the very personal language of nature that is so different – and yet so similar –according to our own unique landscape.

Calendar of the Sun for Friday, February 21

Calendar of the Sun

Feralia: Day of Purification

Color: White
Element: Air
Altar: On a white cloth put a lit candle, incense, a cup of water, and a bowl of salt.
Offering: Although this day is not a day of total silence, it is a solemn day and talking should be done only when necessary and in quiet tones. Bodies should be thoroughly cleaned during the bathing hour, and then the altar area should be cleaned and purified with all four elements. Each person, upon entering the altar space at the beginning of Sponde should remove their clothing and be naked, and each body should be purified with the four elements and marked with water and salt, at which point they may enrobe again. Chores of the day should concentrate on cleaning and repair.
Daily Meal: Vegan and extremely simple and plain.

Feralia Invocation

Breathe the air into your body
And breathe out again,
And as you breathe out,
Let all grime and corruption
Depart on that breath
(All breathe together for twelve breaths.)
Feel the blood coursing through your body
And imagine it clean
Of anything but what should be there.
Feel the energy coursing through your body
And wash it clean
Of anything that does not belong.
Feel the Earth beneath you,
Remember that She can absorb all
Remember that all rot is her provenance
Draw her energy up into you
And give it back again.

(After this grounding, all breathe together again in a yogic breathing pattern for the next half an hour, after which all will go with water and salt and incense and fire to all rooms in the house and cleanse them. Great care should be taken for the rest of the day not to disturb the energy of the freshly cleaned house.)

A Little Humor for Your Day – Circle Etiquette for Beginners, It’s A Joke!

“A HUMOUROUS GUIDE TO CIRCLE ETIQUETTE FOR BEGINNERS”

1.  Always visit the bathroom before you step into the circle.  Some High
Priests and Priestesses tend to be a bit long-winded and it may be a while.

2.  Never tell a High Priest or Priestess that they are a bit long-winded.

3.  If you MUST drop your athame on someone’s foot, drop it on your own, but
remember, reconsecration is long-winded.

4.  Never wear ritual jewelry that is gaudier than that being worn by the High
Priestess.  Rank has its privileges.

5.  Privileges of rank include chanting loudest and singing off-key.  If you
wish to usurp these privileges, do so SOFTLY.

6.  Never goose anybody with your wand, unless it is specifically called for in
the ritual.

7.  Always move and send things Deosil around the circle. Deosil meaning in the
apparent clockwise rotation of the sun around the earth; unless of course you
are from the Southern hemisphere (or otherwise facing North), where the sun
seems to go counterclockwise around the earth.  Then again, there is always the
moon which although it seems to be going Deosil is actually sneaking around
going Widdershins…When in doubt, stand between two or more people and do what they do.

8.  Never drink the last of the wine. The High Priest or Priestess are probably
saving the dregs for themselves.

9.  Don’t worry about how you look when you’re skyclad.  Everybody else is too
busy worrying about how they look skyclad to notice.

10.  Never “accidently” drip hot candlewax on someone else’s naked tush.

11. Always allow at least two hours after eating Schezwan or jalapenos before
attending a circle and kissing everyone.

12. Do not disrupt a closed circle by walking through it.  Many insects and
small animals may cross the circle without disrupting it and under these
circumstances are considered psychically Null and Void.  Disrupt the circle and
you may be considered a bit Null and Void yourself.

13. In the case of unwanted or unforeseen spiritual manifestation do not run or
scream.  You will only draw their attention.

14. Remember: Your gravitational attraction to candlewax, spilled wine, incense
smoke and candle flames is in direct proportion to the cost of dry-cleaning
your robe.

15. Anything which you allow to follow you home from the Astral is unlikely to
be housebroken.

16. Never touch anyone else’s ritual tools or gear without their permission.
Attack training is common.

Daily Cosmic Calendar for December 21st

Before Venus becomes today’s star attraction, the mental and emotional realms seek to harmonize as Mercury makes a supportive, 60-degree link with Juno (3:52AM) while the Sun makes headlines by entering Capricorn (9:12AM). This is one of four, sacred turning points of the calendar year and known as the Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere. Capricorn is the fourth of what are known as the cardinal signs that begin each season. The other three signs — Aries, Cancer and Libra — initiate their seasons via the elements of fire, water and air, respectively. Capricorn begins the new season with a focus on earth — which translates as the need for energizing career aims and being industrious with your business acumen.  However, there is a one-two Venusian punch about to be delivered as Venus parallels Pluto (11:59AM) followed by Venus at 29 degrees of Capricorn beginning a six-week reversal at 1:55PM. It is hard to sugar-coat this double-edged, Venusian sword and make it sound appealing. The truth is that you should be much more careful right now on the monetary, romantic, and social fronts. Doing anything underhanded or secretive could come back to haunt you. Say no to plans or ventures that have a controlling or manipulative aura. During the Venus retrograde cycle — that lasts until January 31, 2014 — you want to review and reflect about loved ones, artistic expression, and all of your most significant relationships.

Southern Hemisphere Magick

Southern Hemisphere Magick

Author: Frances

Despite what appears to be a wealth of information available on neo-Pagan traditions, one section of the community seems to be grossly under-represented and that is those of us who reside in the Southern Hemisphere – Australia, New Zealand and even South Africa, to name but three countries. The majority of authors residing in the Northern Hemisphere seem to have little or no knowledge at all of the differences between the hemispheres. And if such a difference is acknowledged, it is usually limited to only the Sabbats. It is no wonder that endless debates occur on how to “do things” down under.

The following is a suggestion based on my own personal observances as both a Wytch and magickian who resides in the Southern Hemisphere, which may be of assistance to others.

There are at least four major differences between the Hemispheres. The first is the obvious six-month difference in the seasons. When it is Midsummer in the Northern Hemisphere, we in the South are celebrating Midwinter (the “Christmas in July” theme is becoming a popular event even amongst non-Pagans). The dates, according to general consensus, of the Southern Sabbats are:

Samhain – 30 April

Midwinter Solstice (Yule) – 21 June

Imbolg – 1 August

Spring or Vernal Equinox (Eostre) – 21 September

Bealtaine – 1 November

Midsummer Solstice (Litha) – 21 December

Lughnasadh – 1 February

Autumn Equinox (Mabon) – 21 March

If we use the astrological signs in which the Sun moves into to determine each Sabbat date as opposed to actual calendar dates, then this too is changed by six months:

Samhain – 15 deg Taurus

Midwinter Solstice – 0 deg Cancer

Imbolg – 15 deg Leo

Spring Equinox – 0 deg Libra

Bealtaine – 15 deg Scorpio

Midsummer Solstice – 0 deg Capricorn

Lughnasadh – 15 deg Aquarius

Autumn Equinox – 0 deg Aries

This means that Northern Hemisphere-based festivals appear largely out of place in the Southern Hemisphere. Our Morris Dances however still celebrate “May Day” on 1 May regardless of the fact that it marks the beginning of Winter; likewise the Christian Easter falls in Autumn as opposed to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. However, there are specific events that do align – in particular specific Southern Hemisphere-based public holidays. One good example is ANZAC Day, the day on which we remember Australian and New Zealand service men and women that died at war. This day of remembrance occurs on 25 April, close to the Southern Samhain on 30 April.

The next major difference between the Hemispheres is the direction in which the Sun moves across the sky. As in the Northern Hemisphere, the Sun still rises in the East and sets in the West, however on its journey across the sky in the Southern Hemisphere, it travels via the North because of the tilt of the Earth’s axis. For this reason, most Pagans in the Southern Hemisphere cast their circles in this direction, via the North or in an anti-clockwise direction.

It irks me when authors refer to deosil as meaning “clockwise” and widdershins as meaning “anticlockwise.” Not only does this not apply to the Southern Hemisphere, but also it is etymologically incorrect. According to the Australian Concise Oxford Dictionary, the word deosil comes from the Anglo-Saxon word meaning “sunwise” or “in the direction of the (apparent) motion of the sun,” and in the Southern Hemisphere this is anticlockwise. The term widdershins comes from the Middle High Germanic word “widersinnes” meaning “against the sun.” In the Southern Hemisphere, this is clockwise, representing the direction for banishing, winding down energies or even for darker workings. Of course, as English – as well as other European languages incorporated into the English language – stem from the Northern Hemisphere as opposed to the Southern Hemisphere, Northern associations are more dominant. For example, deosil is also said to come from the Irish word “cor deiseil” which means “auspicious right hand turn,” while widdershins is akin to the Irish “cor tuathal” meaning “the mundane left-hand turn.” To save confusion, however, for Southern Hemispheric Pagans, I prefer and recommend the first definition with respect to the Sun.

A further observance is that the energy flow of the Earth between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres is also reversed. Prior to spending time in England I was told to observe the direction in which the water drained down the plughole. In the Northern Hemisphere, energy moves in a clockwise direction, whereas in the Southern Hemisphere, it is anti-clockwise.

If we take the above information into consideration when placing the elements around our magickal circle, it then seems logical for the placement of Fire to be in the North, while Earth is placed in the South. Environmentally, to the North is the Equator and from the North come the scorching Summer winds. North is also the placement in the sky of the Noonday Sun. In the South however, where the Sun never appears in the Southern Hemisphere, are the bitter cold Winter winds, as well as the frozen mass we refer to as Antarctica. However, this goes against the directional placements of the elements in more traditional Pagan groups.

I know a number of traditional Crafters who continue to place their altars in the North because according to their tradition (despite it being Northern Hemispheric-based) this is the “dark quarter.” One reasoning behind this is that on the astral the directional placements of the elements do not matter. If this is the case, then when I operate between the worlds, it should not matter if my physical altar and circle casting reflects the land in which I reside. Surely, if the founders of Earth-based traditions such as the Craft and Wicca (for example, Gerald Gardner, Alex Sanders or even Aleister Crowley) were based, or had spent some time, in the Southern Hemisphere, would they not have taken the differences into consideration?

Some Pagans living in the eastern states of Australia not only swap the elemental directions of Fire and Earth around, but also Water and Air. When you take the environment into consideration, it is easy to see why they do this. East of Australia is the Tasman Sea or even the Pacific Ocean – large bodies of water. In the Southern Hemisphere our weather patterns move largely from the West (therefore the placement of Air).

Another difference between the hemispheres, which is often overlooked, is the direction in which the crescents of the Waxing and Waning Moons point. In the Southern Hemisphere, the Waxing Moon in the sky actually points to the right, while the Waning Moon points to the left. Therefore the symbol of the Triple Moon Goddess (the maiden, mother and crone) reflects an introverted appearance opposed to the extroverted appearance in the Northern Hemisphere. But there are times where the Moon decides to really throw the spanner into the works and the Waxing Moon can be observed lying on her back pointing upwards, and the corresponding Waning Moon pointing downwards.

For us Southern Pagan practitioners, there is more to take into consideration when we work our magick and our circles than simply swapping the Sabbat dates around. And with the varying opinions and reasons behind even basic circle casting, it is little wonder newcomers to the various Pagan traditions in the Southern Hemisphere find it all very confusing. Maybe Pagan book publishers should take this into consideration, and if anyone is interested in issuing a contract for such a book, I would be interested in writing one (shameless plug, but I couldn’t resist).

In the Southern Hemisphere not only do we appear to do things standing on our heads but also working backwards as well – or maybe it is you Northern Hemispheric Pagans who have got it wrong.

And if such a difference is acknowledged, it is usually limited to only the Sabbats. It is no wonder that endless debates occur on how to “do things” down under.

The following is a suggestion based on my own personal observances as both a Wytch and magickian who resides in the Southern Hemisphere, which may be of assistance to others.

There are at least four major differences between the Hemispheres. The first is the obvious six-month difference in the seasons. When it is Midsummer in the Northern Hemisphere, we in the South are celebrating Midwinter (the “Christmas in July” theme is becoming a popular event even amongst non-Pagans). The dates, according to general consensus, of the Southern Sabbats are:

Samhain – 30 April

Midwinter Solstice (Yule) – 21 June

Imbolg – 1 August

Spring or Vernal Equinox (Eostre) – 21 September

Bealtaine – 1 November

Midsummer Solstice (Litha) – 21 December

Lughnasadh – 1 February

Autumn Equinox (Mabon) – 21 March

If we use the astrological signs in which the Sun moves into to determine each Sabbat date as opposed to actual calendar dates, then this too is changed by six months:

Samhain – 15 deg Taurus

Midwinter Solstice – 0 deg Cancer

Imbolg – 15 deg Leo

Spring Equinox – 0 deg Libra

Bealtaine – 15 deg Scorpio

Midsummer Solstice – 0 deg Capricorn

Lughnasadh – 15 deg Aquarius

Autumn Equinox – 0 deg Aries

This means that Northern Hemisphere-based festivals appear largely out of place in the Southern Hemisphere. Our Morris Dances however still celebrate “May Day” on 1 May regardless of the fact that it marks the beginning of Winter; likewise the Christian Easter falls in Autumn as opposed to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. However, there are specific events that do align – in particular specific Southern Hemisphere-based public holidays. One good example is ANZAC Day, the day on which we remember Australian and New Zealand service men and women that died at war. This day of remembrance occurs on 25 April, close to the Southern Samhain on 30 April.

The next major difference between the Hemispheres is the direction in which the Sun moves across the sky. As in the Northern Hemisphere, the Sun still rises in the East and sets in the West, however on its journey across the sky in the Southern Hemisphere, it travels via the North because of the tilt of the Earth’s axis. For this reason, most Pagans in the Southern Hemisphere cast their circles in this direction, via the North or in an anti-clockwise direction.

It irks me when authors refer to deosil as meaning “clockwise” and widdershins as meaning “anticlockwise.” Not only does this not apply to the Southern Hemisphere, but also it is etymologically incorrect. According to the Australian Concise Oxford Dictionary, the word deosil comes from the Anglo-Saxon word meaning “sunwise” or “in the direction of the (apparent) motion of the sun,” and in the Southern Hemisphere this is anticlockwise. The term widdershins comes from the Middle High Germanic word “widersinnes” meaning “against the sun.” In the Southern Hemisphere, this is clockwise, representing the direction for banishing, winding down energies or even for darker workings. Of course, as English – as well as other European languages incorporated into the English language – stem from the Northern Hemisphere as opposed to the Southern Hemisphere, Northern associations are more dominant. For example, deosil is also said to come from the Irish word “cor deiseil” which means “auspicious right hand turn,” while widdershins is akin to the Irish “cor tuathal” meaning “the mundane left-hand turn.” To save confusion, however, for Southern Hemispheric Pagans, I prefer and recommend the first definition with respect to the Sun.

A further observance is that the energy flow of the Earth between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres is also reversed. Prior to spending time in England I was told to observe the direction in which the water drained down the plughole. In the Northern Hemisphere, energy moves in a clockwise direction, whereas in the Southern Hemisphere, it is anti-clockwise.

If we take the above information into consideration when placing the elements around our magickal circle, it then seems logical for the placement of Fire to be in the North, while Earth is placed in the South. Environmentally, to the North is the Equator and from the North come the scorching Summer winds. North is also the placement in the sky of the Noonday Sun. In the South however, where the Sun never appears in the Southern Hemisphere, are the bitter cold Winter winds, as well as the frozen mass we refer to as Antarctica. However, this goes against the directional placements of the elements in more traditional Pagan groups.

I know a number of traditional Crafters who continue to place their altars in the North because according to their tradition (despite it being Northern Hemispheric-based) this is the “dark quarter.” One reasoning behind this is that on the astral the directional placements of the elements do not matter. If this is the case, then when I operate between the worlds, it should not matter if my physical altar and circle casting reflects the land in which I reside. Surely, if the founders of Earth-based traditions such as the Craft and Wicca (for example, Gerald Gardner, Alex Sanders or even Aleister Crowley) were based, or had spent some time, in the Southern Hemisphere, would they not have taken the differences into consideration?

Some Pagans living in the eastern states of Australia not only swap the elemental directions of Fire and Earth around, but also Water and Air. When you take the environment into consideration, it is easy to see why they do this. East of Australia is the Tasman Sea or even the Pacific Ocean – large bodies of water. In the Southern Hemisphere our weather patterns move largely from the West (therefore the placement of Air).

Another difference between the hemispheres, which is often overlooked, is the direction in which the crescents of the Waxing and Waning Moons point. In the Southern Hemisphere, the Waxing Moon in the sky actually points to the right, while the Waning Moon points to the left. Therefore the symbol of the Triple Moon Goddess (the maiden, mother and crone) reflects an introverted appearance opposed to the extroverted appearance in the Northern Hemisphere. But there are times where the Moon decides to really throw the spanner into the works and the Waxing Moon can be observed lying on her back pointing upwards, and the corresponding Waning Moon pointing downwards.

For us Southern Pagan practitioners, there is more to take into consideration when we work our magick and our circles than simply swapping the Sabbat dates around. And with the varying opinions and reasons behind even basic circle casting, it is little wonder newcomers to the various Pagan traditions in the Southern Hemisphere find it all very confusing. Maybe Pagan book publishers should take this into consideration, and if anyone is interested in issuing a contract for such a book, I would be interested in writing one (shameless plug, but I couldn’t resist).

In the Southern Hemisphere not only do we appear to do things standing on our heads but also working backwards as well – or maybe it is you Northern Hemispheric Pagans who have got it wrong!
