The imposition of the Gregorian calendar by a patriarchal church, diminished the power of the feminine in more ways than one, for, as we know, the 13 lunar cycles are aligned with the 13 menstrual cycles of the woman.
As the Gregorian calendar was imposed, so the number 13 became associated with superstition and bad luck.
However, in reclaiming our knowledge of the Divine Feminine, we begin to see that 13 is a number that is very relevant and powerful as we awaken our consciousness.
We are in the 13th year of the second millennium of the Gregorian calendar.
13 is regarded by some ancient cultures that can be found today, in Brazil, as a number that represents God.
I refer to the Coperos religion and the culture that keeps it alive.
In India, the number 13 is referred to as ‘Terah,’ meaning, your’s. Terah represents Karma in the spiritual sense and the fact that all belongs to the Divine.
Many believe that this signified the return of the Divine Feminine and have felt strangely energized and empowered since that time.
There is a compelling desire among many to re-establish our connection with the Earth.
This year of 2013 is more than just symbolic in the re-establishing of our relationship to the Earth…it is manifesting in the hearts and minds of many.
It is worth re-calling the importance of 13 in the Christian religion, at the very beginning… for it was Christ who was the unifier, the one who joined the 12 disciples to make 13.
13 is a unifying vibration, no longer to be feared, but to be embraced and understood.

As the weekend draws in, the clock tells me it’s time to make dinner and settle in for the evening…it’s Friday evening!
The day has been wet and grey and much of my work has taken place in and around the cottage.
Days like today are welcome though, as it allows a little bit of a slow-down and a time for reflection and making plans.
I have decided to tile the kitchen floor, using broken tiles from the local tile shop, Carrick Tiles.
It is a long task, but the best approach is to a little each day and try not to work too long, as this can inhibit the desire to return to the task the following day!
This is the longest period of time without a visit to the vet.
It appears that keeping really warm by the stove eases her symptoms.
Doesn’t she look well?
There is something so beautiful about driftwood.
Even the scent of this wood evokes the ocean.
It is magical to live this close to the Atlantic Ocean…about a 45 minute drive to Rosses Point.
I’m happy to tell you all that the “We Will Not Comply” petition now has over 4,200 signatures…not bad for a mere 8 days.

April weather is always unpredictable. Snow fell this morning…in between rain and brilliant sunshine! It was like a convergence of all the seasons in one morning!

The rain has fallen for 48 hours. Heavy, relentless rain, that has washed down the hill behind the cottage and into the ditches, I constructed for such a deluge. The water is carried around the ditches and into the stream bed that flows down through the Fairy Wood and on, into the ponds. This is […]
The Ivy hangs in 3-4 metre tendrils on a tree in the Fairy Dell…Quite Magical!Euphorbia…this wonderful perennial comes up more lush every year and transplants easily…I started with a stolen cutting and now it dominates the April/May/June garden and beyond!Angelica, now at least 7 feet tall and with a massive spread. Medieval herbalists called it […]
Working in the tunnel this morning I heard the first Cuckoo of the year calling from the hill behind Bealtaine. This is extraordinarily early to hear the Cuckoo…usually in May, or at the earliest, very late April…the seasons are coming earlier here in Ireland. The flowers on the first Wild Orchid of the year are […]
From monoculture grass and cows to Pear blossom on an April evening…Permaculture. Where once was a field covered in grass and rushes, there is now an orchard and…permaculture. Blackthorn blossom through the arch… The barbed wire that once bordered this area by the cottage is gone, replaced with a new border…of plants and trees…permaculture! And […]
