Mrs Darley's Fragrant Herbal

A Planetary Journey into the Aromatic World of Herbs, Oils, Resins and Spices 
For millennia, Nature’s aromatics have both enchanted and fascinated. Fragrant herbs,
perfumed oils, scented resins and exotic spices have been used to heal and harm, to preserve
and destroy and to worship and curse as the history of man has been written.
‘Mrs Darley’s Fragrant Herbal’, explores the fact that each herb, oil, resin and spice has a
planet, or heavenly body as its ruler, which has a marked effect upon its nature and
appearance and also upon the physical,emotional and psychological disorders it is
capable of easing.
As always, Mrs Darley, the author’s delightful and ever-wise next door neighbour
when she lived on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall back in the 1990’s, threads her way throughout
the book, teaching Carole about the healing properties of nature’s aromatics and their
importance in magick.
Carole was also to learn however, that even plants with darker energies and less fragrant
aromas can often prove to be invaluable.

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.
