Te Au Mārie

Te Au Mārie – The Peaceful Current

This is the calm after the storm; the period immediately after rough weather when the sea begins to settle. It is the calm times which allow us to re-focus, reassess our achievements and think to the future.

It also refers to a group of stars that are used for navigation which rise and set during the spring season. They are known as Wero I te Ninihi, Wero I te Kokota and Wero I Te Au Maria. The names themselves pertain to neap and spring tidal movements during the spring season and the shift between each cycle.

The change of Maria to Mārie uses a more modern dialect 
and to avoid confusion with the word Maria.
