Full Moon Eclipse in Cancer January 2020 Pick-a-Pile Readings

The Full Moon is a time of potent magick and illumination of things that have been hidden. It is also a time of culmination for whatever was begun during the New Moon. However, the effects of eclipses are said to culminate more slowly and our most recent New Moon solar eclipse in Capricorn on the 26th is something we will only see the full effect of in the summer of 2020.

We are coming up to a Full Moon lunar eclipse in Cancer on 10 January (7:21 PM UK time). I'm not going to go into various Pagans names for this lunation. It's labeled a 'Wolf Moon' in New Age pop spirituality, as if all indigenous peoples used the same Moon names or as if only one tribe counts. 'Wolf Moon' sounds cool though... I guess that's why it's made its way out in the world via social media.

The truth of the matter is that many of the Moon names used by our Pagan ancestors have been lost. They were, for the main part, an oral tradition and when the solar xtian calendar was introduced, almost everyone stopped navigating the year by the Moon. Old names were forgotten. Also, what a lot of people don't realise is there were local variations regarding the names of the Full Moons, even among people from the same tribes.

You can find a list of various Pagan Moon names HERE. (To be taken with a pinch of salt)

And HERE is a list of Heathen Moon names. I do feel it is important to emphasise that this is Icelandic and other names would have been used elsewhere within the the lands populated by Northern and Western Germanic tribes.

I won't be going into the astrological aspects that are going on right now. Suffice it to say that Pluto, Planetary ruler of the Underworld is heavily involved. Many are alread experiencing the intentsity of certain ongoing aspects that are culminating over the next few days.

Self-professed Cynic Tries Witchcraft for a Week

This morning I came across a post on Patheos Pagan that was written in response to an article published in the Independent. The pagan author was justifiably upset about how witchcraft was being portrayed in the news. The aim of the article in the Independent is clearly to mock people with an irrational belief in magick that goes against science, lumping witches together with climate change deniers and anti-vaxxers.

Welcome to the new-old version of the witch burning times, my friends.

The original article from 12 January 2020 is nothing short of laughable because the author, Ceri Radford, mentions confirmation bias in the idiotic paragraph where she 'explains' divination to us while being in blatant denial about how her own confirmation bias shaped her experiment of 'becoming a witch in one week.'

It's a bit like someone trying to become an astrophysicist in a week and ending up debunking astrophysics because they can't explain it. Silly girl.

The Upcoming Saturn-Pluto Conjunction

So much has happened in the maddening crescendo leading up to the Saturn-Pluto conjunction on the 12th of January, 2020. I could talk about everything that has happened in the past year and how much my life has changed since I started reconnecting with the shamanic path of my ancestors. Words would fail.

Suffice it to say, roots are going down deep into the black and fertile soil. The whispers and drumbeats from Saivo nourish my soul daily.

I could talk about the increasing pressure of the upcoming Saturn-Pluto conjunction and what tremblings are going through my nervous system as this conjunction will be exact on my 50th solar return and conjunct not just my natal Sun but also my natal Venus and Mercury.

But I'm not going to prattle on about that. I'm going to let the awesome song by Seidrblot below sum it up instead...

Everything about this music video is giving me all the feels right now.
