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.

Do White People Have a Right to Reclaim their Ancestral and Tribal Roots?

Today, I'm blogging a response to an article on Medium because I stumbled on this article right after my daily Oracle post (which was very much about reclaiming ancestral roots), and felt deeply moved to rebutt the notion that white people have no right to reclaim their ancestry or tribal roots.

The author of the original article makes a lot of very strong statements, lumping all 'white people' together:

"White people already have a bunch of ancestry. We’ve recorded it for centuries. Other peoples are not so fortunate because white supremacists ensured that they would not have family history through slavery or genocide.
So all that you’re doing by 'reclaiming ancestry' is defining something that can be used to discriminate against others, NOT of your ancestry, and put us all into categories.
I say, drop the idea RIGHT NOW, that anyone is 'reclaiming' anything. You are already white."
The article is quite obviously written by an American becaus…

March 2020 Forecasts Pick-a-Pile Rune & Tarot Readings

Happy Odin's day, my friends. I thought I'd get the March pick-a-pile rune and Tarot readings out to you a couple of days early this time.For this month's readings we are working with Legend - The Arthurian Tarot (affiliate link) and the set of runes I made a couple of weeks ago.


Mercury is still retrograde at the start of the month. For guidance on the current retrograde and a bespoke Tarot spread, chek out this post. Mercury stations direct on the 4th of March.

Mars is a big player this month, conjuncting the current stellium of planets in Capricorn and re-energising issues we dealt with back in January, some of which we will be forced to revisit - hopefully with a better outcome this time!

The March Super Full Moon in Virgo happens on 9 March at 17:37 GMT. If you feel you need more info on this lunation, I recommend this video by Pam Gregory.

The spring/autumn equinox falls on Thursday, March 19.

The New Moon in Aries happens on Tuesday, 24 March,at 09:28.

February Forecasts Pick-a-Pile Rune, Tarot and Oracle Readings

Hello my friends, I hope you are well and looking forward to all that February will bring. I think we can all safely say that we are glad to see the back of January that lasted forever and seemed to bring very little but bad news and ends with the UK divorcing the EU + concomitant threats of continued austerity. This morning I came across a relatable tweet where someone said:

"I have come to the end of my free one month subscription for 2020 and would like to cancel the subscription."


Okay, so January was tough for many of us both individually and on a global level but quitting is not an option.

Resisting the bad just makes it last longer, both in the subjective (time is relative) and the objective sense. Time to shift gears and begin to look forward to spring and what we can actually DO to make this world a bit better...

The February Full Moon in Leo happens on 9 Feb at 07:33 GMT. For astrological forecasts for your respective Sun and Rising signs, I recommend Nightlight As…
