Woodland Midsummer 2016 – Ceremony in Richmond park

Join us for the afternoon to celebrate MIDSUMMER 2016. Outdoor /Woodland  ceremony & Social.  . Bring a picnic and celebrate, sing, dance, drum and socialise!

`This marks the height of the Summer, and the longest day of the year. Astrologically, it is exactly the point when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer (which is the natural house of the Moon!). The new-born Sun of the midwinter (Yule) has grown to it’s fullest potential, and so pagans are mindful at Midsummer that the wheel turns. It is when the previously defeated Holy-King returns, challenges the Oak-King and wins. Thus at Midsummer, the rein of the Oak King ends and the one of Holy King begins. Midsummer games such as tug of war enact this battle between summer and winter forces. In terms of the God myths, it is a time for the God to become Sun-King, and take his place on the throne of responsibility for his people’ -Mani

`Why do you come? To kill the King. Why? His blood feeds the land! ‘ And so begins many a traditional ceremony for Lammas.

The Hanged Man of Tarot – Odin’s sacrifice, the cutting down of Corn King, and the ritual suicide of Hern the Hunter all get played out one way or another in our lives. Join Hern’s Tribe on the eve of a Blue Moon, for resolving these painful cycles, and come together for a joyous celebration of Lammas – time of great Harvest and for reaping the rewards of your hard work. Bring your masks & drums and join in this tribal jollities.

Hern’s Tribe has facilitated several Open rituals for PF London in the past (between 2005- 2012). And we are thrilled to have been invited by PF London to facilitate this ritual. It’s a welcome return after a 3 year gap.

May Hern protect us

Kate’s ovedue: Astro-potential of the upcoming Royal baby

Windsor Royal Child-July 2013 -art-Mani Navasothy
Windsor Royal Child-July 2013 -art-Mani Navasothy

Kate’s overdue for delivering the future King/Queen of the country ..but only by human standards! She’s right on time by Fate’s clock I say!

In 2 days (17th July to 20th July, then 22nd July) some brilliant astrological transits (grand trines) are about to take place.. and I think the child will be born in that time.. and dare I say, he/she will possess incredible astrological potential for making the world a better place.. more so than Diana or William..

I may live long enough to see that over the next many decades..or not. Doesn’t matter. I am blooming (!) excited about this ..from an astrological point of view. Simple because, any child born in the next week or so (not just the Royal one for Prince William & Kate Windsor) is coming into this world on a most auspicious astrological time.  It’s all happening and linking the sun-sign of Cancer, which is what the new Royal baby is going to be..(unless s/he is born after 22nd July..in which case it’ll be a Leo).

(take a look at my blog on grand trine july 2013 & the Convergence).

Windsor Hern ritual connection

Some years ago, some of us in Hern’s Tribe (our outdoor ritual group..now in it’s 9th year) started doing an old custom..of performing a Windsor-Hern ritual, for the well-being of this land..  (they did it for the well-being of Royalty..but we changed it to a Sovereignty of Land ritual).  In fact, the very firstone we did happen to coincide with Prince Charles & Camilla’s wedding (well, they moved their wedding date by a day later, and that then fell on the day that we had scheduled to do the ritual.. in 2005).   Here’s the link for that page in Hern’s Tribe.

I’ve been planning to `keep our promise’ to Hern, and do the ceremony in Wondsor soon (haven;t done it this year yet)…and this occassion seems ideal for that now..  Sometime in the coming 2-3 weeks..  just as we head into Leo, and also Lammas (Harvest festival of Pagans).

Watch this blog for updates…on when we’ll be doing that Ceremony in Windsor Great Park (may be short notice)..
