By Marie Ponting

July has come to an end, August is here and so is Lammas, blessings to you.

I celebrated this weekend by running a wand making workshop – absolutely beautiful. We see 2 full moons this month, firstly the Sturgeon moon, with the new moon on the 16th being the blue moon, at its fullest on the 30th August. Blue moons are rare, hence the saying once in a blue moon, it will definitely be one you will want to go and see, possibly meditate under.

My write up is going to be relatively short this month as I have been incredibly busy doing school things and processing my emotions around endings and letting go. I have 5 children so I have spent a very long time doing school runs, packed lunches, assemblies and so on. This year my youngest child has left primary school. That’s 19 consecutive years of school runs, I found myself cherishing every moment, there have been times where I thought it was never going to come to an end and now those days are gone. I won’t get those back, it’s time to move forward and embrace the change, however I needed a little time to hold dear those precious moments. Accept the change and embrace the new chapters that lay ahead.

One of those chapters is the development of my business. I will have more time to devote to that, and to empowering people with their own healing abilities and healing journey. I took my wolf off for a sunrise walk this week. I could almost smell autumn, which seemed a little premature but a wonderful reminder that soon the wheel turns to my favourite season. I could feel the excitement within me coursing up my chakras as I walked over the hill, looked down into the village to see a pocket of morning mist amidst sunrise, immediately the smell of roast dinner came to mind, you can guess what i shall be doing on Sunday afternoon!!

Have a blessed August
