Venusian Day blessings beauties! This week has been intense. Deep within the belly of the beast of patriarchy, there is a fierce call that WE will no longer accept the status quo. As we have witnessed Dr. Ford stand up to a boardroom of dying dinosaurs, we have all felt an array of emotions for our sisters and selves as the age old traumas resurface.
The #metoo campaign emerged with Jupiter entering Scorpio and now as Venus in Scorpio is in the shadow of her retrograde we are collectively witnessing the Truth that needs to be heard.
As a community we are journeying through the eye of the needle. The spaces where power and control have been abused, where whole genders (and those who defy gender), races, classes and religions of humanity have been traumatized are in a deep process of transformation. Before the beauty and the magic may emerge, we must witness fully the rage and the ugliness of how others have suffered. We must allow justice to be born through our courage to resist collapse within.
I wish to be clear about something, although most of my readers are womxn, including all who identify as woman, these weekly love notes are truly for everyone. She is We, and I, like so many of my sisters who call to the Divine Feminine hold a vision of a world where the feminine is truly honored, where all are welcomed to sit at the table of plenty.
I will be traveling for the first few weeks of October and have some stellar subs holding down my Kundalini Yoga classes. This Sunday Daya Narayan will be teaching and she wishes to share this message with those who are called to join, 'Sunday afternoon is a time that calls us to travel inward as we prepare for another week. Come together with other beautiful women for inner calm, healing, strength, and beauty as we do the Kriya to Make You Enchantingly Beautiful and Meditation for Healing.'
Venus officially retrogrades October 5th at 7:04 pm GMT and will go direct November 16th at 10:51 am GMT. All relationships, partnerships, including our relationship and value of self are up for review. This Venus retrograde is asking us to deeply question our values on a personal and collective level. What do we buy into with our time and energy? What culture are we creating with this investment?
The exact moment of the station of Venus retrograde, on October 5th a Friday, the day of Venus, I will be gathered with 8 other priestesses in private ceremony at the middle pyramid of Giza in Egypt. There are so many mysteries spoken of the sacred lands of Egypt, however what is most clear is that Egypt is an energetic beacon for our Earth, for Gaia.
Although I am going on a personal pilgrimage, meaning I am receiving while others hold the container, I do feel that part of my work is to be in service to my community from afar. To be in the middle pyramid of Giza during such a powerful and important energetic portal of 2018 is an honor. If you wish for my presence to be a channel for your prayers or healing requests during this Venus station, I offer to bring forth your intentions at the Middle Pyramid of Giza. Please email me and I will hold the frequency for you and your lineage. These messages will remain confidential.
The vision of the Adi Shakti Coven came forth in the Spring of 2017 as a way a rock solid community of womxn, free of hierarchy, where we could come together in honor of our ancestors, the medicine of the Earth, the seasons, the lunar and solar patterns, the cosmic starry wisdom and the pantheon of goddesses who represent the Divine Feminine. I was terrified to launch this offering. No matter how much self healing one may have committed to, we may all go through the internal dialog of 'not enough'. However, I knew in my womb and heart that this had to be birthed by the end of 2017. And so it was.
Our first spiral was immensely powerful and this community has taken a life of it's own. Our second spiral begins Monday, October 1st and we invite you to join us if the Call is pulling you. You may learn more here. Applications are due no later than September 30th.
I leave you with a new podcast on Unbroken Chain hosted by Maura McNamara. We had a beautiful discussion and I hope you find nourishment and inspiration in our exchange.
In the beauty way,
