Full Moon Equinox

A beautiful and sacred light shone over Bealtaine on the occasion of the Spring Equinox this year.

As the moon rose behind the old Ash trees near the Rebirthed Rowan above the Spring Well, it became clear to me that the power of this celestial event brought not just the promise of the rising toward Summer and all that is Bealtaine, but heralded a change in our perception of time and the reality we perceive.

Many will not notice, in fact, most will not be in any way aware of the deep changes happening all around us, for the smokescreens are in full deployment.

This time of suspended reality is simply a normal state for inhabitants of the western world.

The Great Awakening, I have so often written and spoken about, is not just symbolised in this near conjunction of the full moon and Equinox, but is more palpable than ever in the extraordinary Imbolc Spring being experienced here at Bealtaine Sacred Woodland.

The light is powerful!

It is time to rise above the chaos that has consumed us over these last years!

It is time to transcend the man made paradigm of fear and loathing…for fear has controlled the masses and, as a consequence, many have veered off onto a path of self-loathing, being consumed with hatred of our own species.

We are living through tumultuous times.


  1. Hello Collette , I have not seen Jack in a while , is he ok i could see he was aging like us all , there is no food bowl in your porch , Love to watch you wash how sad is that. Been watching your videos for 6 month thats when i found you or you found me , keep well keep safe Grace

  2. Thanks… The 20th of march is my birthday and my sister-in-law give me your book with your sign. I live in Italy and she live in Ireland (i miss Ireland so much). So thanks thanks thanks from my heart for your work that is an inspiration for mine!

  3. Hi Colette I was just wondering if you had received the gifts I had sent you I was a bit worried they hadn’t got to you, they should have arrived on 21/03/2022, fingers crossed they have found their way to you hope you liked the gnome best wishes Julie Thomas

  4. What a thoughtful essay. I come back to it daily and ponder your statement: “It is time to transcend the man made paradigm of fear and loathing…for fear has controlled the masses and, as a consequence, many have veered off onto a path of self-loathing, being consumed with hatred of our own species.” It has really touched a chord in my heart and mind; something clearly true, but tragically so. I am hopeful that clarity brings growth and healing. Thank you!

  5. The Moon called me from my sleep in the early hours before dawn, I went to my bedroom window to gaze up at her but looking through the glass wasn’t enough for her. I pushed my bare feet into shoes stepped outside in my nightdress to gaze upon her fullness. The birds were singing all around me as I lifted my camera to snap a few photos before returning to my bed. Still She wasn’t satisfied and once again I felt her pull me from my bed, I tossed on some clothes and once again stepped outside to gaze at Her beauty, I walked to the end of my driveway continued on to the corner and snapped a photo of Her shining brightly in the early morning light over a neighbors house. When I returned I made a cup of tea, grabbed my notebook, went to my outside table where I sipped tea, listened to the birds sing to one another and wrote pages of prose to the Moon. I haven’t written like that in years. I still feel light and airy, Spring has energized me like never before. Happy Spring and Blessed Ostara

  7. Thank you Colette for your beautiful message of renewal…I do believe being one with the healing power and truth in nature is the way…holding that way dear within us and radiating it outward with kindness is the way

  8. Beautiful post, Colette, and Happy Spring! I agree, for those with eyes to see, magic is afoot. One benefit of such obviously fake reporting on so many different things is that people begin to question the imposed “reality.” Just a peek behind the veil reveals a regenerating and beautiful world. Blessed Be!
