Autumn Equinox: Mabon and the Salmon of Wisdom

Earth Wisdom Earth Science

The Autumn Equinox is the time when the sun crosses the Equator and is positioned above it, exactly between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Now as the nights grow longer and the days shorten, leaves hang golden and burnished on the boughs, and the abundance of summer passes into seed. This is the time of the second harvest, gathering the last of the vegetables, fruits and seeds that will see us through the winter in the form of jams, purees, stews and chutneys. The opportunity to rest comes after the labour of harvest, time to give thanks for the abundance of the Earth’s produce, to reflect on all that one has reaped and sown in the previous months, to bring projects to fruition and to start to let go of all that which is no longer needed. Both the cornucopia, the symbol of plenty, and the apple, symbol of the…

The Horned God

Eric Edwards Collected Works


The Witches Sabbat.  Francisco de Goya (1789).

It has been claimed that the origins of the ‚horned god‘ are during the Aurignacian and Magdalenian of the Palaeolithic period (Murray, 1932) as suggested by the cave painting of the so-called ’sorcerer‘ in the Caverne des Trois Freres. The figure seems to be performing a ritual, possibly shamanic, in disguise. The Palaeolithic cave painting the ’sorcerer‘ was regarded as a singular horned god or human wearing horns (Purkiss, 2006), where additionally Murray (1970) stated that the Stag-Man was the „…most important of the horned figures of the Palaeolithic period…figures usually represented with the horns of a goat or chamois…“. However, Margaret Murray’s interpretation of , and theory concerning, the image been rebutted at a later date (Hutton, 2006).


The ’sorcerer‘ at Les Trois Freres, Lascaux circa 13000 BCE. Public domain.

The horned god or figure appears during the Bronze Age, originally in the Near East, Mesopotamia, and in India with many…

Horse clans

Logarithmic History

3833 – 3514 BCE

The Botai culture (3700 – 3100 BCE), in present-day Kazakhstan, represents an uncommon mode of subsistence: equestrian hunting. The fact that the Botai folk have domesticated horses makes them different from most hunters and gatherers, while the fact that they depend heavily on hunting makes them different from later herders in the region.

The most famous equestrian hunters are the American Plains Indians of the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries. These were a varied assortment of tribes, with origins among more settled Indian groups, who took up riding after Spaniards reintroduced the horse (which had gone extinct in North America, along with other megafauna, twelve thousand years earlier). Plains Indians depended on hunting bison for most of their diet. The Botai folk were not hunting bison of course, but wild horses. Horses supplied the overwhelming part of their diet; 90% of animal bones in their settlements…

Mael (Mahel), Ascetic on The Isle of Bardsey


May 13 is the Commemmoration of Saint Mael (Mahel), Ascetic on the Isle of Bardsey.
mael 2
Maël was a fifth-century Breton saint who lived as a hermit in Wales. He was a follower of Cadfan from Brittany to Wales, ultimately to the Isle of Bardsey. Mael is believed to have been a Briton, and to have been related to St Patrick.
“Saint Cadfan, (Latin: Catamanus); (English: Gideon) was the sixth century founder-abbot of Tywyn and Bardsey, Wales, primarily accepted as the founder of the monastic settlement on Bardsey Island in north Wales, in 516 according to multiple sources, serving as its abbot until 542.”

“During the fifth century [Bardsey Island] became a refuge for persecuted Christians, and a small Celtic monastery existed. In 516 Saint Cadfan arrived from Brittany and, under his guidance St Mary’s Abbey was built. For centuries the island was important as „the holy place of burial…

Bardsey Island Apple – „Rarest Apple In The World“

Planet Permaculture

Top Fruit: Apple – Malus domestica (syn. Bardsey Island)Image

„Bardsey Island is a lonely wind-swept island off the tip of the Llyn Peninsular in North Wales, UK. It has long been a venue for pilgrims both pagan and later Christian. A single gnarled old tree was discovered near the remains of a 13th century abbey (in 1999), believed to have housed monks. Hailed as the rarest tree in the world (1000 years old) it is perhaps all that remains of the monastic orchard. It is  the only apple variety from the Celtic welsh heartland. On the island both tree and fruit are completely disease free.“


The fruits are striped pink, medium sized and have a distinct scent of lemon. Excellent straight from the tree, the fruits are crisp, sweet and juicy. They will cook to a delicate light golden fluff and require no added sugar. Harvest at the end of…
