To all the midwives, the wombones, the wild hearted, the she wolves, the mystics, the medicine makers, the soil workers, the chantreses, the wise ones, the healers, the lovers, the teachers, the artists, the mothers, the daughters and our beloved crones--
She is WE. She stands for all aspects of life. And she knows how to doula death. She honors all races, genders, creeds, religions, beliefs and possibilities. There is more than enough for each of us to sit together with tenderness and grace at the table of plenty. May we find more ways to practice deep listening, to link arms, and to honor each other’s hearts.
Each and every day is International Women’s Day. We birth the world into being and we priestess the times of death. We are rising from an epoch of deep slumber. We are the paradigm shifters. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for! It is an honor to stand alongside you!
Venus works her magic so that each one of us clearly knows what we value. Now the moon is waning and the season of Spring is almost upon us. This an ideal time to literally clean out our physical lives. . .our closets, basements and cars.
My daughter and I spent two hours today driving to donate items to Safe Inc, an organization that is committed to breaking the cycles of domestic abuse and violence. We could’ve easily donated our haul to the Goodwill, just 8 minutes down the road. However, I’ve heard many stories about clothing sent to South Africa, piling up and causing environmental waste while distracting from the local cultural economy. My commitment to my values pulled me in another direction and I did this as an offering to the beauty of Venus and her sacred day.
Do you remember last Fall, when Jupiter entered Scorpio? Scorpio is the archetype of the scorpion, the snake, the eagle and the phoenix. Scorpio wishes for us to know our depths, to know our ability to transform. Jupiter in Scorpio expands our knowledge of self and does so while offering us a rare opportunity to change, to improve, to better ourselves and others.
On Wednesday, Jupiter began to retrograde and is now taking us on a deep space journey. We are time traveling back to December 11th 2017. It won’t be until July 10th that Jupiter will turn direct once more. Each decision we have made based on our conscious evolution since last December is up for review and revision. Jupiter rules both Pisces and Sagittarius, so this transit is teaching us about the values of justice, truth, compassion and connection.
If we are willing to delve into the unconscious and explore the hidden shadows, we then have the ability to bring forth what is hidden from the recesses. This deep work is supported by mystery studies, traveling to mystical places, consciously exploring shadow work, deep intensive therapy and intimacy practices with self and others. This is the time to gather with your community in your sacred circles for a supportive descent.
As always, I am here to anchor and assist you on this journey. I love supporting people one on one through astrological mentoring, soul coaching and alchemy sessions. Next Thursday we gather in my temple living room to call in the Pisces New Moon. Our first spiral of the Adi Shakti Coven is proving to be a supportive and safe circle to do the deep inner journey work of Jupiter in Scorpio. Women are truly transforming their lives and it is awe inspiring! If you would like to be notified when the application process opens up for Spiral two, please message me. In June I will offer a Welcoming Midsummer Retreatin Hot Springs. . .the details and the ability to sign up will be available next week!
And the women are coming forth to answer the Call to walk Her footsteps on a deep ancestral healing pilgrimage in Southern France. I invite you to step into the journey with me on The Grail and the Goddess. In the spirit of acknowledging the complexity of our times and the privilege some have more than others, I am grateful to offer one partial scholarship for a woman of color who wishes to join us. If you feel this is you, email me directly to apply. I will accept applications now through April 30th.
It is my deepest prayer to craft and curate these offerings to assist in your cosmic evolution.
