Celebrating Solstice! June 21st

June 21st, 2018 ~ Summer Solstice (in the Western Hemisphere.) “It is a time of appreciation, acknowledgment, and celebration.  With the powerful cosmic alignments coming up ahead, the Summer of 2018 promises to be indeed a “Summer of Love” like many have already begun to anticipate.  And, for each of us, this will look a lot like whatever our own personal relationship with “Love” is.”   The change of seasons is like graduation from one impulse to another.  Having journeyed through the initiation phase of Spring for the past three months, it’s been about the SPARK of Life introducing us to the impulse of birth and that which is wanting to come forth and be born of us. Spring is the Season of Discovery where new life takes seed and comes out from the dark incubation period of Winter.  Within our psyche, this can manifest itself as a time of rebirth or renewal where fresh new insights, ideas, or actions are taken to initiate our life plans or dreams. Winter offers us an opportunity to… Continue reading

Goddess Aphrodite & Queen Persephone

  Aphrodite Sisters of The Pomegranate The Goddesses of Vision & The Alchemist of Love Both Aphrodite and Persephone are linked in their mythologies by the Pomegranate ~ the aphrodisiac fruit of sublime pleasure.  Aphrodite is said to be the mature aspect of Persephone, and Persephone the innocent or immature shadow of Aphrodite. The Independent Goddess Aphrodite is very much of ‘The World’ and the material pleasures of it. However, she taps into a depth of power, (perhaps from the very source of her counterpart – Queen of the Underworld: Persephone) to bring forth the inspiration of the muse, which powerfully inspires, captivates and enchants all she touches.  This is Aphrodite’s gift: her medicine to imbue all she looks upon – with beauty.  To be in~love with the object of her attention.  Her love is unmistakably felt and trailing about her wherever she goes.  This also is the very poison which leaves a trail of broken hearts in the wake of her return, and her own addiction to the taste of Love & Beauty can… Continue reading

Rites of Passage & the Moon Cycle

A rite of passage is an important event that marks the transition from one phase of life to another. Something that happens in the life that carries us, and in affect transitions us, into new awareness and new life roles.   Rites of Passage are situations like Birth, Marriage, Sickness, Death, Divorce, New/End of job, New Home, Beginnings/Endings of friendships or family relationships, great successes/great losses, etc.   When we honor these passages and events in our lives it can greatly impact the quality of our lives and add to living in a more meaningful and fulfilling way. We can grow gracefully, from one phase of maturity to the next, through our Transitions.  These experiences initiate us into meeting with a deeper aspect of who we are.  As the Great Joseph Campbell said ~ It is “The Hero’s Journey.”  We are continuously being Initiated by the Spirit of Life through challenges, ordeals, obstacles, heartbreaks, and various powerful “Tests” of who we are.   It is the Test of Time and marks our character.  To go through an initiation is… Continue reading

The Art of Esotericism

 The etymology of “esoteric” stems from the Greek root meaning inner or pertaining to the innermost.  The esoteric studies are a path that leads us deep within on a journey of Self-discovery.  From the Starry Cosmos to the rich dark soil of the Earth we are found.  In all esoteric realms, there is Great Mystery. Codes of information beyond the perception of ordinary human consciousness are here to be deciphered, unraveled, and received.  However, the fact remains though it may be encrypted information beyond the average mind and invisible to most, it IS HERE, still significantly influencing and permeating the space among all of us. To those that can see, feel, and hear into these realms it is well known the great power of Heart and Soul contained within these “Mystery Schools” of knowledge, as we have come to call them.   There are many worlds of Life engaged with us here in what we call “our world,” but they are all parts of the same one existing Creation.  We have a choice and a… Continue reading

The Phases of The Moon

New Moon ~ the New Moon is the beginning and the end.  It is when the Sun and the Moon are merged together in the same astrological sign (the Full Moon is when the Sun and Moon are opposite each other.) It is the phase in birth where there is still darkness and the seed of life, consciousness, inspiration, or an idea is in and about to come through the dark incubation period. It is manifested energy but not yet in the fullness of the form it will become.  It is brewing hidden within the environment which originated it waiting for the proper nourishment to support it.  In this seed state of consciousness much of what will come into life is still hidden. It is when there is so much unseen creative potential happening (like the fetus in the womb), yet it is not yet fully exposed (like it will be in the Light of the Full Moon phase) . The New Moon is a period of time when we have an important idea, an inspiration, an… Continue reading
