Off to Avalon
I have a roundtrip ticket to Avalon today…Avalon, Catalina Island that is 🙂
Avalon is a mystical and magickal Isle in the “other world” of the Faery realm. It is an island that is said to have been the resting spot of great warriors, a calm and peaceful sanctuary and place of healing. It is said the island is where Caliburn (sword of the stone) and Excalibur (sword of the lake) were forged. And where Lancelot, was raised by the Lady of the Lake and where the Holy Grail first stood.
As Miranda Sophia Solace of Avalon Beyond shares:
“This Island is a realm between the worlds, an entrance in to the underworld and has been for centuries and indeed millennia a site of initiation and worship. Featuring strongly in Arthurian Legend, the Isle has captured the imagination of many who have visited there experiencing the peace and rebirth of this ancient mysterious gateway to the Goddess.”
And today, Avalon is where this wee faery will be.
As I live a symbolic life and this morning appears to have misted, clouded gray skies (reminding me of my painting, Mists of Avalon) that I’ll be journeying across the waters on the boat over through, why not it be that this “Avalon” may be my “realm between worlds” for the day. It certainly feels so, and being that it is on the threshold of the Lunar Eclipse Super Moon in Sagitarrius of 5/24-25, it is once again an interesting and powerful symbolism I did not know I was creating when I first made these reservations over a month ago.
Seems to hold a poignant meaning for me today and I’m sure I’ll soon find out what that is.
So I’m off like a faery to my magickal sanctuary just directly across the water from where I live to take a day off to refresh, renew, receive inspiration for the large projects I’m working on, and to kick off this fun weekend ahead.
I’ll write more about the Full Moon energies, some shifts, and other fun stuff over the long Memorial weekend.
Every day is a chance to create a little magick. I hope you are creating your own. It’s always there to embrace.
