Seasonal Events

14 Apr

Welcome To Blue Water Family

Blue Water Family acknowledges each of the Equinox and Solstice transits during the year. We do this in order to remind one and all of the connection between Humanity and Nature.

The Dogon of Mali West Africa, describe the change of season based on the position in the heavens.

A Dogon High Priest seated holding his flail of authority

The Sun of the north refers to the trajectory of the sun’s path, reaching the highest point high in the sky. In the Uk this will give us the longest day of the year, during our Summer Season. The Sun of the middle refers to the trajectory of the sun’s path, reaching the middle position in the heavens. In the UK and everywhere else on earth, this will give us equal day and equal night time hours twice a year, in March and in September, Spring and Autumn respectively. The Sun of the South refers to the trajectory of the Sun’s path, making its shortest journey low in the heavens, from east to west giving us here in the UK the shortest day of the year, during our Winter Season.

In astronomy The zenith is the “highest” point on the celestial sphere.

In astronomy, the meridian is the great circle passing through the celestial poles, the zenith, and the nadir (point directly below the zenith) of an observer’s location.

Happy Sun of the North 2018

21 Jun

Happy Sun Of The North

Today is the June Solstice 2018 and Amunet’s Fables Book 6 has been published to honour this Orisha nature spirituality event.

Here at Blue Water Family we would like to thank our readers for your continued support and for adding these seasonal books to your growing collection. The title of the new book is: Celestial Create Your Own Heaven.

How can you create your own heaven? The answer is simple. You can create your own heaven by living a life in-tune with nature, by learning from our elevated ancestors and by consulting the oracle, which is your higher self. 

We are all here for a certain amount of time, which apparently keeps on ticking into the future… When we learn from each other and share as student teachers, the life affirming ways of humanity will become apparent, especially if we commit to healing the generational wounds passed down through our bloodline linage. All will be well when we Vision well and provide opportunities for the spirit of justice and reciprocity to flow.

We say Ashe. Amen. Let it be so and so it will be.

Zero Degrees Piscies

20 Mar

0 degrees pisces 2018

During the annual return of the Sun of the Middle, as described by the Dogon of Mali, day and night are of equal lengths. We are therefore reminded to find balance in all things on this day and learn the lessons going forwards into the rest of the solar year. At this time, Extra Special attention is directed to our inner world, also called our Life Force and given many names including prana in the Hindu tradition, Chi in the Buddist tradition, Nyama in the Dogon tradition, Ase in the Ifa-Orisa tradition and Sekhem by the Ancient Egyptians. These ancient Sharmanic practices work closely with the natural world and they encourage us to learn from the cycles of nature in order to incorporate these lessons into our daily lives. The spiritual essence which flows through everything is an important aspect to consider since it connects all that is part of the universe, the unseen, the visible, animate and inanimate… One of our featured Scholars contends that…

‘…In essence, everything is reducible to [that] energy and all real power flows from it. That energy, while not knowable in and of itself, can be accessed and its effects observed and interpreted. The numerous forms of divination throughout the world are methods of interpreting the ever-changing flow of that energy through its external manifestations. This energy not only inter-connects everything that exists, it is everything that exists…

When Is Your New Year?

2 Mar
heart and brain that walk hand in hand

When the brain and the heart work together we can achieve many good things…

 

For many nature lovers, the month of March heralds in the seasonal new year. For those of us living in the upper northern latitudes, we endure because we know that Spring is just around the corner. Additionally, for those of us who have been allowing our creative juices to flow during the magical darkness of the winter months, today is the March 2018 Full Moon. Which means that another lunar cycle has been completed. A gentle reminder to finish what we have started over the previous cycle and celebrate our achievements no matter how small.

Cadence – The Rhythm Of Life

16 Feb

Happy February New Moon 2018

 

 

The new Moon announces the beginning of a new lunar cycle. Both Astronomers and Astrologers report to us that the lunar phases influence all water on earth. If this is the case and since we are mostly water and our planet is mostly water, perhaps it is time to be in tune with the cadence and the rhythm of life here on our beautiful planet. Perhaps it is also time to see the light in all our loved ones and help them to shine.

Amunet’s Fables
Look out for the first seasonal book of Fables in 2018 entitled:

“Cadence – The Rhythm Of Life”

A Gift For Our Loyal Readers
With the 2018 publications of Amunet’s Fables, readers will be treated to a bonus 5 short short stories, one of which will be a FREE chapter of another new book due for release some time soon…

Happy Perigee Full Moon January 2018

1 Jan
The First Full Moon of the year is a BIG one… Read on for more knowledge of self and the unvierse, with Blue Water Family.
Which Orisha?
Yemanja (or Yemoja) is the West African Yoruba deity who is associated with our natural satellite. Her domains are the surface of the Ocean and all phases of the moon. This makes perfect sense. Be reminded that the moon controls the rise and fall of the tides. See the animation diagram below and Read more here: http://home.hiwaay.net/~krcool/Astro/moon/moontides/
Distance to the earth?
The 2018 January Full Moon is said to be at perigee, meaning that this Full Moon phase will appear to be larger than usual, due to its proximity to the earth. The closer the moon comes towards us (perigee) the larger it appears. The further away it becomes (apogee) the smaller it appears. Read more about the moon here: https://bluewaterfamily.wordpress.com/2017/09/21/about-the-moon/
Happy New Year To All Our Readers
Let us take a moment to reflect on the developments on the Global stage: 2018 is another milestone towards the Millennium Development Goals, with 12 years remaining to meet the targets of the GLOBAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS in 2030. Full speed ahead to all those life affirming organisations and hard working individuals who are earnestly making a difference in the lives of those facing life threatening challenges. We say well done.
Be Thankful
All who are reading this post, have the opportunity to give thanks for the breath of life. We have made it to see another Gregorian Year. Perhaps a smile is in order…
