New Moon solar eclipse at 9-10 degrees in Virgo and the North Node is at 12 Virgo. SYDNEY: September 1, 7.03pm LONDON: September 1, 10.03am NEW YORK: September 1, 5.03am Four planets in Virgo under this eclipse highlight the importance of details, and of paying attention to the little things. Eclipse expert Bernadette Brady describes this…
“If you are making a work of art in any area of life, you are not going from a known point A to a known point B. You are inventing point B.”
The darkest hour is just before the dawn
There is hope, even in the worst of circumstances.
This is one of those improving proverbs that are the stock in trade of the contemporary glut of self-help manuals and talking therapies. The darkest hour has long been used figuratively to mean ‘the lowest ebb’ and there are many such examples of it in print dating from the late 1700s.
The English theologian and historian Thomas Fuller appears to be the first person to commit the notion that ‘the darkest hour is just before the dawn’ to print. His religious travelogue A Pisgah-Sight Of Palestine And The Confines Thereof, 1650, contains this view:
It is always darkest just before the Day dawneth.
The source of the proverb isn’t known. It may be Fuller himself, or he may have been recording a piece of folk wisdom. In 1858, much later than Fuller of course, Samuel Lover attributed the notion to the Irish, in Songs and Ballads:
There is a beautiful saying amongst the Irish peasantry to inspire hope under adverse circumstances:- “Remember,” they say, “that the darkest hour of all. is the hour before day.”
There it is, some history of this statement for you !
It is one which I have always felt to be correct. That there is always light at the end of the tunnel etc. Many is the time that grasping for the light has helped me to get through and deal with a situation.
Recently I have been at risk of losing my home. I have had months of no income as I have been unable to find work. I also have a client who refuses to pay me quite a substantial sum. Through all this there has always been a message that all will work out for the best, that all will be well. That this is the dark before the dawn.
I believe many of us are going through our darkest times at the moment and my heart goes out to all of you in this position.
I don’t wallow in my darkness most days, though some days are really hard. I am being as gentle as I am able to be with myself. I am accepting help from others where it has been offered and am also working with the local community to get back on my feet.
This has been a very humbling time for me and a tough time financially.
I have applied for full time work and been turned away. I am now contacting businesses by phone and email to get work for my own business. If you find yourself in this position and have an idea for a business, get it started, get it out there any way you can.
I will not dwell on the darkness but leave you with this statement –
“Faith is the strength by which a shattered world shall emerge into the light.” – Helen Keller
I see that it is for us about stepping up, stepping out into the world and away from the darkness, doing what we may have been reluctant and lacking the confidence to do. Step out of the darkness into the light and love what you do and bring it to the world.
Best wishes and blessings to all of you who are with me at this time to pull through that darkness and emerge bearing light for a bright future.
Today’s message is of utmost importance to all and particularly for pagans and witches etc who practice their faith openly.
It has been a long time since the witch trials and other nasty happenings in many parts of the world while in other parts it is a regular happening. Did the citizens of those parts of the planet ever stop punishing those of us who worship nature though.
It has come to my attention via my new earth sensitivity and also advice received from my mentor, friend and Uncle in spirit, Sean Goddard-Chase who feels her as I do, that the anti-terrorism laws will bring attention to us and our gatherings. It was mentioned by the media at the recent G20 event that the English Prime Minister is adopting for his country the anti-terrorism laws which have been introduced across Australia after being initially introduced as bikie laws here in Queensland. The current earth energies are bringing this energy to us and it is time that we took steps to ensure our safety is maintained and that we do all we can in the most love filled way to counter this action against us. We are to ensure that we are protected and kept safe always and particularly during our public gatherings. Practicing love for our fellow man as well as each other will help to prevent injury and subsequent action against any of us.
Mother Earth is hereby requesting of you to be aware of this coming energy and prepare to defend yourselves as well as protect and shield you and yours with love always. Remembering always the natural law which states As Above, So Below and As Within, So Without! If we are projecting love to all, we can counter this nasty energy.

We are quite often challenged and sent lessons in the form of uninvited people who come into our space, be it home, business, personal space and social media space. These people may bring issues which may be considered a lesson needing to be dealt with or they may not. The lesson of an uninvited guest can be that your current protection or shielding is open enough that they come directly to you. Perhaps you have not put any protection or shielding in place.
In order to prevent uninvited guests arriving at all times it is important to set rules for access to your space, be it your home, business or person.
I have been shown by my friends in nature, to put a boundary around my home in the form of trees which root themselves deeply into the earth, on all sides of the property, while their canopy itself becomes the roof over my home. I also ensured that my own energy filled the cosy little space under the canopy, thereby keeping the canopy from collapsing. This is my energetic protection and shielding of my home and it has worked a treat with a bit of initial tweaking.
To ensure the right people came to my home at the right time it was important for me to set the intention that only those with love in their heart and also those needing healing and ready to accept healing request access. I set this intention with the rule that any access has to be between the hours of 9am to 5pm Monday to Saturday for my business.
As it stands I have been informed by a friend that what they see is not what I see and that there appears to be great stone blocks making a huge wall around my home.
It is imperative that we set similar rules for our business, our social media space and our personal space. These were lessons I learnt over time once my home was protected and shielded.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need help with any of this.
With my Irish and therefore Celtic background, the story of the Faeries start with the Tuatha De Danann. They are said to be a mythical people but I know they lived in Ireland before Christianity. I know this because I have traced my Irish heritage, through a family website, back to that time and found that my family was one of the first 3 families to settle in Ireland. I know I am one of the Tuatha De Danann, I have relatives amongst them and they are my Faery family. My journey to find out who I am started with a reading from a friend approximately 2 years ago. She told me I had a visitor in spirit at the reading who was a Bard, Seer and Warrior of the Tuatha De Danann. He challenged me to guess who he was 🙂 Of course I started to look for information on the Tuatha De Danann, not much exists, as far as websites at least 🙂 Through another friend over the last 6 or so months he has set me some very silly tasks to determine who he is !! Reading the Book of Kells for starters, I was to find him in there. This was declared to be a trick when I realised it was such !! He is Lugh and he came to me in a meditation when I asked to meet him. On that same day I meditated to meet one of my Fae family … my sister Morrigan … she came and gave me a message ‘believe in you’ xxx
My most valued possession these days is my set of Brian Froud’s Faery Oracle Cards. The first time I held and looked at each of the cards I cried for I knew immediately that they were paintings of my family. The guidebook kept opening at Card 13 in the set and I thought this was about me reading about the Sidhe as that is what is on that page besides the card. I have only recently realised that Card 13 in that set is Lugh who was one of the gods of the Tuatha De Danann and he is also my Tuatha De Danann contact and father. Coincidentally the number 13 is what I call ‘my number’, that number which means everything to me. When you understand who Lugh is you realise only he could be a Bard, Seer and Warrior 🙂
I have been told that the Sidhe or the Tuatha De Danann are awakening so that they may help their descendants to wake up …. if you have any Irish heritage please do some research as I did
An update on this for you all is that I firmly believe we each are being sought to look to the traditional peoples of the land we feel as ‘home’. For our stories are within the myths, legends and history of those peoples. It is through this connection, I believe, that we will discover who we are and get an inkling as to why we are here. I am aware that there are new souls here on earth and that is so very exciting, they will not need to do this research of family and ties to the earth.
I have many writings to share with you and more to come so please keep in touch.
Many blessings of love to each and every one of you on this fabulous day xxx
