Happy Equinox, Solstice, Lunar Eclipse and Druid Day of Celebration


There is magic in the air today with the rare convergence of a stunning lunar eclipse falling on the same day as the equinox, the Winter solstice.  How rare you might ask?  Well the last one was in 1638, 372 years ago, and the next will be in 2094, 84 years from today.

It is the time when Druids rule the Earth, King Arthur has consolidated the English under one king, and Merlin the Wizard protects the first king to bridge the pre-Christian and Christian cultures.  Now that would take a mighty powwerful Wizard.

I journeyed to England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland in search of the ancient Celts and found them at Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Edinburgh, the Giant's Causeway and Newgrange, the ancient Irish tomb where the sun hit the center on the equinox.  I stood in the center of that tomb.

So today I celebrate magic, good magic that is, and the Celtic days of the Druids when all that was needed was provided without electricity, cell phones, television and computers.  How did we ever survive?
