Greek mythology is full of tales of desire, heart-ache, life and death, they ruled heaven and earth and passed down their inherent wisdom giving lessons in morals, regret, love and forgiveness.
Why not delve into the masculine Gods with us, and see if you can apply a little bit of their logic to the men in your lives?
Apollo – God of Arts and of Prophecy
The message from Apollo is to embrace your creativity. Apollo was what we would call an old head on young shoulders, he had a gift for foresight from a young age. He was the son of Zeus and Leto, and people travelled to the Oracle at Delphi from all over the world to hear his prophecies. One of his reasons for embracing creative expression was for ridding the soul of toxic thoughts and feelings from the past, allowing a new and brighter future to unfold. (more…)
Angels are quite mystical in themselves, much has been written about them and there are many different opinions about their origins and purpose. Despite a diverse attitude a few theories have become accepted, such as one popularised by Dionysius the Areopagite who was a Greek mystic of the 6th century CE. He wrote the Celestial Hierarchy where he divided the angelic realm into nine orders, made up of three choirs. This theory was further developed in the 13th century by an Italian theologian named St Thomas Aquinas.
The First Choir
The first choir was made up of three groups of angels who were supposed to be closest to God, and who were given face-to face-worship with him.
Seraphim: They include Uriel and Michael who were aflame with love and devotion for God and were therefore known as the ‘burning ones’. (more…)
Do you own a telescope? Now would be a great time to get it into a viewing position, so you could watch the shooting star display that is Eta Aquarids.
Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower
The meteor shower is actually caused from debris from Comet Halley; it takes place each year in either April or May as Earth crosses the orbital path of the comet.
Dust and particles will illuminate the sky, which we call Eta Aquarid, producing a magnificent shooting star spectacle.
When to Watch
There could be any number of possibilities to see the event from the 19th May to the 28th May, however in the UK the best dates are probably the night time of the 6th May and early morning of the 7th May. It is likely that at its peak a stargazer may witness thirty meteors. (more…)
Colour Therapy, sometimes called Chromatherapy, Colourology or Light Therapy means to restore good health or improve health by adding or taking away colours from a person’s environment.
Healing through colour has a rich history through the ages, it has been used for thousands of years in China, it makes up part of the Ayurvedic medicine philosophy and Babylonians considered the power of light to me the ‘medicine of the Gods’.
We know that Egyptians used jewellery – amulets of coloured stones to treat different illnesses:
Intuitive, sensitive and deep thinkers, those with the Life Path 11 can count themselves as ‘dreamers’ or ‘spiritual messengers.’
If your Birthday adds to an 11, for example 4 August 1961 we add:
- 4+8+1+9+6+1 = 29
- 2+9 = 11
In this case, you would have the Life Path number of: 11
(If you are unsure on how to calculate your Life Path number, refer to our previous post ‘introduction to numerology’). (more…)
Our friends are said to be the family we choose.
As a quote by philosopher Aristotle goes: “In poverty and other misfortunes of life, true friends are a sure refuge. They keep the young out of mischief; they comfort and aid the old in their weakness, and they incite those in the prime of life to noble deeds.”
Friends make us all happier and healthier people, and for that reason 1-30th September is recognised in the UK as Friendship Month. (more…)

The maternal bond is the physical, emotional and loving bond between child and mother. It is the natural instinct for mothers to protect and care for their children. Mother’s day is an occasion where the child can honour their mothers love, support and guidance. Obviously this is something we should always do but the modern celebration of Mothers Day wasn’t invented until 1907. It was Anna Jarvis from West Virginia who held a memorial 2 years after her mother’s death and then began a campaign to make “Mothers Day” a recognised holiday in the US. She was successful in 1914 when it was recognised as a national holiday. However by the 1920’s she was greatly saddened to see that commercialisation had taken over the holiday and was over shadowing its spirit. Mother’s Day was soon adopted around the world. In the US the date of Mother’s Day is the second Sunday in May. In the UK the holiday is also commonly known as Mothering Sunday which is a Christian holiday celebrated on the 4th Sunday of lent. Many other countries around the world celebrate Mothers day on different dates around the year. (more…)
Did 2012 feel like you steamed through the year without stopping for a minute to understand your inner path? Spirituality is an important part of being human, often a difficult concept to understand as it encompasses the immaterial world and requires us to understand the essence of who we are and the values by which we live our lives.
