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.

July 2018

What an active month this is. 
Planets visible this month are Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in the evening sky and Mars and Saturn in the early morning sky.
On the 13th there is a partial solar eclipse, albeit, it will only be visible from south Australia and the Indian and Pacific oceans.
The 13th also brings the birth of the new Wort Moon which also happens to be the nearest new moon to earth of the year.
On the 15th the Capricornid meteor shower is at its height.
On the 27th we are treated to a full lunar elcipse in the sign of Aquarius, which will be visible from the UK as the moon begins to rise at 20.49. The colours won't be as deep initially due to the moon being so close to the horizon. The eclipse will be total at 21.21 and will end at 00.28. This will also be the smallest new moon of the year.
These eclipses denote challenging times where nothing can stay the same if we are to survive and thrive. Expect the unexpected.
May the Summer gods smile down kindly on us all.
