How many of you have invoked The Lord and Lady in this way? Do you have your own way to invoke Them?
Today (Jan. 8) coincides with the twenty-sixth day of the month of Poseideon – the day of the agricultural festival of Haloa.
The Haloa is a gratitude festival celebrated in the ancient times at Eleusis in honour of Demeter, Dionysus and Poseidon.
fruits, grain, and wine were the only edible offerings which were offered up to the Gods of the festival. It was both a gratitude festival and a festival to ask the Gods to bless the fields and orchards that they may have a plentiful harvest.

ADVICE FROM A TREE
Stand tall and proud
Sink your roots deeply into the earth
Reflect the light of your true nature
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living beings
Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The energy and birth of spring
The growth and contentment of summer
The wisdom to let go the leaves in the fall
The rest and quiet renewal of winter
Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence
Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night
Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Earth, fresh air, light
Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes
Remember your roots
Enjoy the view!
