A New Moon as Aquarius Ends and a New Year begins!
What's New & Blog
All over the world members are creating wonderful projects, artwork, books, poetry and music, and this blog is a space for telling others about your work, or posting about any subject relevant to Druidry or the spiritual quest.
If you are an OBOD member and would like to post here, just email firstname.lastname@example.org include photos, purchasing information if applicable, your web site, contact information, and any other relevant data, and we’ll post it as soon as we can.
In addition, in this section we announce the latest additions and changes to the website to help you keep up to date.
Dear friends, Druid Magazine, a new upcoming official OBOD publication for the Americas, will feature articles, opinion pieces, and facilitate discussion on topics of interest to us. The way I envision it, it is a conversation about American Druidry amongst the backdrop of the larger Druid community. In this premier year, it will publish in virtual format three times and be open to any subscriber or author from around the world.
Especially for our Portugese members. Now open to everyone. Bardic Nights!

Rowan's Invitation to New Realms
“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves…..” Mary Oliver

A Full Moon in Gemini December 6, 2014
In celebration of the full Moon in Gemini, we have a Uranus/Pluto square, astrological symbol of the past few years! This will be the sixth of seven exact squares stretched from 2012-2015. It will provide an extra injection of gabby energy into the electrical Gemini full Moon. A Gemini full Moon is already full of verbal overflow, Mercurial monkey mind, wide curiosity and unfinished business. The intellect is buzzing in several directions at once.
Celtic Tree Magic empowers the reader to work with the Ogham on numerous levels, practicality and spirituality interweaving to create an approach of depth and beauty. Throughout, Danu's heartfelt connection to the wisdom of trees - born of many years of study and interaction - shines through, guiding the reader on a path deep into the forest. With many useful practical exercises that serve to open the reader, the book seeks to moves us from a purely intellectual understanding to a living relationship with the trees of the Ogham.
