I became aware of her behind me and I turned to see the wood anenomes growing on a bank and thought it would be a beautiful remedy to capture under moonlight.  In fact as the thought became more manifest I could not understand why I hadn’t made it into a Moon Flower before; it seemed a perfect candidate.  And it was.  I had to wait a few days for the Moon to wax to full but then went back to the same spot in the woods soon after the Sun had set, when the light was dipsy.  I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to find enough flowers in the gloom, especially as they had only just started to flower.  However, they shone out through the darkness and the few days wait proved perfect as enough had indeed come into flower to be able to make a remedy. I became aware of her behind me and I turned to see the wood anenomes growing on a bank and thought it would be a beautiful remedy to capture under moonlight.  In fact as the thought became more manifest I could not understand why I hadn’t made it into a Moon Flower before; it seemed a perfect candidate.  And it was.  I had to wait a few days for the Moon to wax to full but then went back to the same spot in the woods soon after the Sun had set, when the light was dipsy.  I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to find enough flowers in the gloom, especially as they had only just started to flower.  However, they shone out through the darkness and the few days wait proved perfect as enough had indeed come into flower to be able to make a remedy.

As I picked the flowers and placed them in the bowl of water someone fired a gun in the near distance.  There was another shot and then another and I thought perhaps I should wait until they had finished killing whatever they were hunting.  The shooting carried on so I did too, not allowing it to become a distraction.  However, I became acutely aware of the shooting once more when it increased to such an extent that it sounded like there were several people shooting guns.  At this point I had covered the bowl of water in flowers but the shooting continued to intensify until reached a crescendo sounding like a firework display.  Then it suddenly stopped.  How bizarre! I always note the time of making in order to draw up a horoscope of the birth of the remedy when I return home and wait three hours for the remedy to cook.  I was particularly interested to see how the martial planet Mars would weave into the fabric of the horoscope, as it was so prominent in the woods at the time of making.

This is a horoscope drawn up for the making of a Moon Flower, so the Moon is a dominant feature.  You can see the way the Moon ☾ links up with Mars ♂ and the Saturn/Pluto conjunction   forming the blue-lined equilateral triangle at the centre, a dominant feature of the horoscope.  The full moon indicator in the horoscope is the red line extending from the Moon, directly across the centre, to the Sun ☉, in conjunction with Chiron, the planet of the Wounded Healer (symbolised by the key) and all this on the equinox line, the line that splits the zodiac in two. This is a horoscope drawn up for the making of a Moon Flower, so the Moon is a dominant feature.  You can see the way the Moon ☾ links up with Mars ♂ and the Saturn/Pluto conjunction   forming the blue-lined equilateral triangle at the centre, a dominant feature of the horoscope.  The full moon indicator in the horoscope is the red line extending from the Moon, directly across the centre, to the Sun ☉, in conjunction with Chiron, the planet of the Wounded Healer (symbolised by the key) and all this on the equinox line, the line that splits the zodiac in two. 

 Another of the apexes in the triangle, the Saturn and Pluto conjunction, has the red line of opposition running up to the Moon’s north node , which is very important in the context of a Moon Flower.  In fact, if you look closely at the centre circle you can pick out 4 sides of a blue-lined hexagram taking in all the planets I have mentioned.  This is a stunningly beautiful, symmetrical and intense horoscope.

A little while later I went to take a photo of the wood anenomes but got distracted and ended coming back home with springs of oak buds to boil, as Dr. Bach had done when he made his Chestnut Bud.  They had come from a single very mature stand-alone oak in the middle of a field.  There was a fissure in the trunk, running to the ground.  I could put my hand into the tree and follow its curve around, explore deeper in the oak than my eyes could go.  I pulled out a large piece of rotten wood and rapidly stepped back when it gave off alarming amounts of dust.  I examined it closely once the wind had blown the rot away.  Such an intimate and interesting image of a tree decaying and I thought how much Heidi would have been fascinated by it as a work of art. A little while later I went to take a photo of the wood anenomes but got distracted and ended coming back home with springs of oak buds to boil, as Dr. Bach had done when he made his Chestnut Bud.  They had come from a single very mature stand-alone oak in the middle of a field.  There was a fissure in the trunk, running to the ground.  I could put my hand into the tree and follow its curve around, explore deeper in the oak than my eyes could go.  I pulled out a large piece of rotten wood and rapidly stepped back when it gave off alarming amounts of dust.  I examined it closely once the wind had blown the rot away.  Such an intimate and interesting image of a tree decaying and I thought how much Heidi would have been fascinated by it as a work of art.  

I broke off some budding twigs from low hanging branches and started to give some serious thought to the uses of Oak Bud remedy.  I walked around the oak.  On one side the oak was majestic, cathedral like, while on the other there was this deep, dark gapping wound.  I was drawn once more to the oak’s interior but this time I had the sprigs in my hand, so I placed them inside; put the new life into the old life.

The making of Lunar Wood Anenome had been such a perfect experience that I wanted to repeat it at the next full moon.  As I was walking down to the woods to look for another flower, I came to the realisation that I hadn’t given any thought to where I was to search, returning to the same spot Heidi had shown me the wood anenome had been instinctive.  When I got there and looked I had to go and find a log to sit on, I was stunned.  Amongst the rich variety of flowers I came across two small sprigs of euphorbia. The making of Lunar Wood Anenome had been such a perfect experience that I wanted to repeat it at the next full moon.  As I was walking down to the woods to look for another flower, I came to the realisation that I hadn’t given any thought to where I was to search, returning to the same spot Heidi had shown me the wood anenome had been instinctive.  When I got there and looked I had to go and find a log to sit on, I was stunned.  Amongst the rich variety of flowers I came across two small sprigs of euphorbia. 

Last year Heidi manifested through a profusion of euphorbia that grew in our front garden.  Euphorbia aligns with the ray of the moon, the mother.  It was Heidi staying close to her childre, the family house and me.    Euphorbia has become a symbol of Heidi and so to see it, not in our garden but at this spot in the woods caused me to sit down.  I could see no more than the two small sprigs but decided to use the flowers in our garden to make Lunar Euphorbia.
