Honoring of the Ancestors/Ronde of the Dead.Feast with the Dead who have passed to Tir na Og.Place a photo and a white candle to honor those who have left this realm.

Beloved Morrigu! Guardian of the Crossroads with her we ride and  meditate asking for
Prophecy,it shall be given.
Great Queen" or "Phantom Queen we honor thee. Badb,Macha and Nemian.

She is  a protectress she empowers an individual to confront challenges with great personal strength, even against seemingly overwhelming odds

And so with this mind let your soul be free as you ride high as a Raven tonight!

The Morrígan is often considered a triple goddess, but her supposed triple nature is ambiguous and inconsistent. Sometimes she appears as one of three sisters, the daughters of Ernmas: the Morrígan, the Badb,Nemain and Macha. Sometimes the trinity consists collectively known as the Morrígan, or in the plural as the Morrígna. However the Morrígan also frequently appears alone, and her name is sometimes used interchangeably with the Badb, with no third "aspect" mentioned.

It is on this night we dance with three.

Deep Peace of the Sidhe

Deep Peace Chant
Deep peace I breathe into you,
O weariness here:O ache, here!
Deep peace, a soft white dove to you;
Deep peace, a quiet rain to you;


May peace, may peace, may peace make you whole

Let peace, let peace, let peace, heal your soul.

Deep peace, an ebbing wave to you;
Deep peace, red wind of the east from you;
Deep peace, grey wind of the west to you;
Deep peace, dark wind of the north from you;


Deep peace, blue wind of the south to you;
Deep peace, pure red of the flame to you;
Deep peace, pure white of the moon to you;
Deep peace, pure green of the grass to you;


Deep peace, pure brown of the earth to you;
Deep peace, pure grey of the dew to you,
Deep peace, pure blue of the sky to you!
Deep peace, pure myst of the world to you!


Deep peace, of the running wave to you,
Deep peace, of the flowing air to you,
Deep peace, of the quiet earth to you,
Deep peace, of the sleeping stones to you!


Deep peace, of the Yellow Shepherd to you,
Deep peace, of the Wandering Shepherdess to you,
Deep peace, of the Flock of Stars to you,
Deep peace, from the son of Peace to you,


Deep peace, from the heart of Brigid to you,
And from Brigid of the Mantle
Deep peace, Deep peace!

And with the kindness of the Haughty Father, too.


Spoken: Peace! In the name of the Three who are One, Peace! And by the will of the Queen and King of the Sidhe, Peace! Peace!

13. Farewells

Gather together and with inner balance give thanks.

La Fheile Fomhar - autumnal equinox. This is a time of balance between light and dark. We give thanks for the harvest, which has been safely gathered home, and say good-bye to the strength of the sun. At this point in the year the sun loses his power, and the dark of the night begins to gain dominion over the day. La Fheile Fomhar is a time of looking backward, recognizing all the goals achieved and harvested during the passing wheel of the year. This is also a good time to ready the garden for winter cover crops and for overwintering that will be ready for harvest in the spring.

2 Wild Horses of Newbury watch video

A friend email this to me:

ŒThe Wild Horses of Newbury¹ shows the magical encounter when two Œwild¹ horses turn up and try and disrupt the felling of two huge old Oak trees during a road building scheme, has to be seen to be believed.

Speaks volumes on nature and the environment. Lets hope this film may play a part in raising awarness

This is a heartfelt plea to save England's oaks. The story focuses on the felling of some trees to make way for a road. But more than that, it is unashamedly poetic, drawing on the chance arrival (or so it would seem) of two wild horses at the moment the trees fall. Despite the film's obvious agitprop agenda, softly over-the-top commentary and understandably grabbed shots, it has been edited to deliver a hard message. And it works rather well.

Below is a wonderful poem Audrey Hepburn wrote when asked to share her "beauty tips." It was read at her funeral years later.

~For attractive lips, speak words of kindness...
~For lovely eyes, seekout the good in people
~For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
~For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers
through it once a day.
~For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.
~People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed,
revived, reclaimed,and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
~Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one
at the end of each of your arms.
~As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands -
one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others.
