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.

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.

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.
