First Moon – Last Quarter

As I’ve mentioned before, I started doing Ian Corrigan’s Nine Moons.  It’s a lot of work, and I still have a long way to go, but I really like it so far.  Making it work amidst my already busy schedule is a challenge, but I feel very driven to do it.  My last retreat day was especially fulfilling in part because I got so much accomplished spiritually and artistically.

Along with taking an amazing nature walk where I had an interesting experience with a new animal guide, I made some loose incense as part of my evening ritual.  It smells amazing!  It’s currently sitting with my plants soaking up the sun and moon.

At the moment, I’ve been doing a bulk of my workings on one retreat day.  April is going to be very busy thanks to classes, visiting relatives, a birthday, and various plans for spring break.  Needless to say, I’m going to be a very busy Druid!  This weekend will be the first that I have to divide my retreat over several days.  This isn’t necessarily an inconvenient thing as it will really help me focus on my meditation and trance skills on more than one day.  I’m not sure how everything will go in terms of being around family and friends…  It’s very hard to get alone time long enough for any deep meditation.  Somehow, I will make it work!
