Full Moon: 8 April 2020 #quarantine

From Mary:

Universal Pathways welcomes you to celebrate the April Full moon ~ April 8th ~ on our Facebook page

Many reading this will remember the aspects of our celebration (Celtic in origin). Every month has a tree as the teacher, or the reminder, for the month. This month is the Alder. The other reminders are the planetary symbolism ~ Mars, gemstone ~ Ruby, flower ~ Broom, and the archetypal character ~ Bran / Arthur. We learn from each of the aspects of the month and we work to incorporate those lessons into our daily lives. 

Since we are now in a period of quiet and alone time, we can choose how we spend it. May I suggest we all do our own review and considerations about the lessons April affords us for growth and understanding? Perhaps keep a journal of thoughts and inspirations to refer to when we are able to meet again…just and idea.

My thoughts for the month ~ There are no strangers, only people we have not seen for a while. How we live this opportunity of meeting again is so important.

Love to all

Harm to none

Blessed Be

Mary

 

CARMINA GADELICA

BEANNACHADH BUACHAILLEACHD [101]

Cuiridh mi an ni seo romham,
Mar a dh’ orduich Righ an domhan,
Bride ‘g an gleidheadh, ‘g an coimhead, ‘s ‘g an comhnadh,
Air bheann, air ghleann, air chomhnard,
Bride ‘g an gleidheadh, ‘g an coimhead, ‘s ‘g an comhnadh,
Air bheann, air ghleann, air chomhnard.

Eirich, a Bhride mhin-gheal,
Glac do lion, do chir, agus t’ fholt,
Bho rinn thu daibh eolas amhra,
‘G an cumail bho chall is bho lochd,
Bho rinn thu daibh eolas amhra,
‘G an cumail bho chall is bho lochd.

Bho chreag, bho chathan, bho allt,
Bho chadha cam, bho mhille sluic,
Bho shaighde reang nam ban seanga sith,
Bho chridhe mhi-ruin, bho shuil an uilc,
Bho shaighde reang nam ban seanga sith,
Bho chridhe mhi-ruin, bho shuil an uilc.

Mhoire Mhathair, cuallaich an t-al gu leir,
Bhride nam basa mine, dion domh mo spreidh,
Chaluim chaoimh, a naoimh nan ioma buadh,
Comraig dhomh crodh an ail, bairig dhomh buar,
Chaluim chaoimh, a naoimh nan ioma buadh,
Comraig dhomh crodh an ail, bairig dhomh buar.

HERDING BLESSING

I will place this flock before me,
As was ordained of the King of the world,
Bride to keep them, to watch them, to tend them,
On ben, on glen, on plain,
Bride to keep them, to watch them, to tend them,
On ben, on glen, on plain.

Arise, thou Bride the gentle, the fair,
Take thou thy lint, thy comb, and thy hair,
Since thou to them madest the noble charm,
To keep them from straying, to save them from harm,
Since thou to them madest the noble charm,
To keep them from straying, to save them from harm.

From rocks, from drifts, from streams,
From crooked passes, from destructive pits,
From the straight arrows of the slender ban-shee,
From the heart of envy, from the eye of evil,
From the straight arrows of the slender ban-shee,
From the heart of envy, from the eye of evil.

Mary Mother, tend thou the offspring all,
Bride of the fair palms, guard thou my flocks,
Kindly Columba, thou saint of many powers,
Encompass thou the breeding cows, bestow on me herds,
Kindly Columba, thou saint of many powers,
Encompass thou the breeding cows, bestow on me herds.
