You’ve recently seen a picture of my Tracey, so I thought I’d post one of the other three this week. From left, Tia, Titus, and Talion! See how Titus closes his eyes? That’s our “game” we play whenever I’m in front of the cage. I close my eyes, and they close their eyes – at least, they do when they’re relaxed. Apparently Titus was, whilst Tia and Talion were still checking out the potentially scary iPhone in my hand.
It’s less than a month to the start of the “13 Moons – A Goddess Journey Through The Year” e-course for the Southern hemisphere (i.e., Australia, New Zealand, the South of South America and Africa, and parts of Asia)! I haven’t had much feedback from people in “Down Under” so I’d love to hear from you folks. Are you considering the course? Any further questions? Do drop me a line or comment on this blog post, your feedback means a lot.
I took a little trip down memory lane this week and I thought I’d share some of that with you. It’s about my inspirations for the 13 Moons course, because I didn’t just dream it all up on my own! This particular concept is mine but I have taken ideas from other people. One of them is Marian Green who suggests a 13-moon journey towards becoming a witch in her book “A Witch Alone”. I followed much of that structure in the year leading up to my Dedication and found I resonated naturally with the 13-moons concept.
The other, stronger influence was German writer and sorceress Luisa Francia whose book “Mond, Tanz, Magie” (“Moon, Dance, Magic”) was one of my earliest contacts with paganism. The book suggests a different goddess for each of the 13 moons of a year, and a dance connected with her. It’s thoroughly magical and has stayed with me throughout the years, like most of Luisa Francia’s writings – she is quite an amazing woman, a true Wise One.
I like the concept of one goddess per moon so I’ve incoporated that into my course. But that was just the basic concept and I expanded from there. My “13 Moons” ecourse is a year-long journey with four email lessons per moon cycle, and once every month the lesson contains information about a moon goddess from somewhere around the world, and a practical assignment associated with that goddess. The other three lessons of that moon cycle will contain other information and more practical assignments, which can take the shape of meditations, walks in nature, dances, crafting, and lots more.
All of it is in tune with the current moon phase at the time you receive the lesson so that over the year, you will more and more live with the cycles of nature and the moon. That’s the basic idea, and so far my “Northern” course seems to enjoy the journey!
Will you be on board this time around?

I do love synchronicity! Shận posted a blog about Walking Your Talk just as I wrote about consistency too. It’s amazing and very in-depths, warmly recommended.
Helena and Laurie both miss Bray, and I thought how awesome it would be to have them both here! Laurie’s blog is always worth visiting; this week she wrote about being “out” as a witch.
Have a beautiful week, everyone!
