Who is Mrs Darley ?
 

 The light of the moon shone intermittently in the November sky as I sank beside the roaring fire in Mrs Darley's cottage. "Listen," she whispered and pointed towards the window. "Whenever the wind blows from the east and the wind chimes dance in the moonlight, there is magic in the air."

Those words were magical to me then and still remain so as they became my invitation to step into the void and begin to explore my own spirituality within the confines of an ancient Cornish landscape.
Upon moving to Cornwall in 1991, I became bewitched by its enchanting timeless beauty, which captured my heart and holds me still. Brooding and mysterious, the south-eastern edge of Bodmin Moor provided the wild backdrop against which the introduction to my magical training and love of nature began. It was here, through the often bizarre, yet strangely compelling guidance of Mrs Darley, that I began to experience my own connection to the universe and the forces of nature. I became aware of the existance and polarity of a Divine female and male presence both within the landscape and within myself.

Mrs Darley was a delightfully eloquent yet mysterious lady of a certain age, whom I was lucky enough to have as my Cornish next door neighbour and, along with a selection of her enlightening yet often eccentric friends, taught me about life, love and magic , opening new vistas of awareness within which I could come to know myself.

The Mrs Darley series of books, follow my journey of self discovery, whilst uncovering the myth legend, history and science behind many fascinating subjects.

JANUARY  2018

January 2nd brings us the first and largest Supermoon of the year as the Moon is in Perigee (closest approach to the earth). This Oak Moon completed the lunar cycle for the Celts and honoured the triumph of the Oak King over the Holly King at the Winter Solstice.
On the 4th, the Quandrantids meteor shower graces our night skies, although you may see its effects up until the 6th at around 80 meteors per hour.
Both Mars and Jupiter are visible in the early morning sky around 3.30am from the 7th to around mid month.
The 17th brings us the new Wolf Moon, a time of abstinence and suspension after the dark time, for the ancestors knew that the worst of the winter was yet to come.
Finally we have that rare event of what many people refer to as 'The Blue Moon', albeit this term does have many meanings. Whichever ,meaning you may attribute to it however, the 31st January does bring us the second full moon of this calendar month as well as a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse will not be visible from the UK , although its effects will still be felt energetically. It is a time of co-operation, of finding a way to work together, rather than tearing each other apart.
These are interesting times - journey well and make your time upon this earth count.
