We All Come From the Goddes

 We All Come From the Goddes

We all come from the Goddess, and to her we shall return

Like a drop of rain flowing to the ocean.

REPEAT

Isis, Astrate, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Innana!

REPEAT

We all come from the Horned God, and to him we shall return

Like a spark of flame rising to the heavens.

REPEAT

Hoof and horn, hoof and horn, all that dies shall be reborn

Corn and grain corn and grain, all that falls shall rise again!

REPAEAT

The Goddess is alive and magick is afoot!

The Goddess is alive and magick is afoot!

RETURN TO THE BEGINING

We Are Alive

We Are Alive

We are alive
as the earth is alive,
we have the power to
create our freedom.

If we have the courage, we can be healers,
Like the sun we shall rise.
If we have courage, we can be healers,
like the moon we shall rise

MOON LORE

MOON LORE

Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side
which he never shows to anybody
~Mark Twain~

 

Moon Passage

Once long ago, humans depended upon the Moon for reckoning time, planting crops and harvesting the sea. It’s phases and it’s path through the sky were matters of concern and interest to all. Today very few people indeed are even aware, beyond a casual glance, of the Moon’s presence. In a sense the lovely silver sphere which sometimes lights our darkness is more mysterious now despite the exploration of its surface. The Moon’s curious forces continue to exert their influence over us and our planet. We and the oceans of Earth still unceasingly respond to the Moon’s magnetic appeal. As a symbol of Mystic significance, appreciated by so many ancient religious expressions, the Moon remains as potent as ever, at least to the poet, the artist and the witch.
Due to the nature of its orbit, the back of the Moon is unseen by viewers on Earth. This lends one more element of mystery to our single satellite. The Moon like the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. Unlike the sun, its size and shape continually change. Four cycles of approximately seven days each total a lunar month, which forms the basis for our present calendar system. The ancients held that the day began at nightfall, and the custom of celebrating holidays on their eve echoes the old tradition.
The slender crescent appearing soon after dark-of-the-Moon is called, obviously enough, the new Moon. It waxes, grows larger, to the first quarter visible in the sky as a half-Moon. The quarter in this instance refers to the sequence of the four phases. As the Moon waxes, its horns point to the east until it reaches full circle. The waning Moon diminishes in size, horns pointing west, until we see no Moon at all.


The times of rising and setting relate to the phases according to a definite pattern, as recorded in this old country rhyme:

 

A new Moon rises with the sun,
Its waxing half at midday shows.
The full Moon climbs at sunset hour,
And waning half the midnight knows.

Controlling Creativity Spell

Controlling Creativity Spell
January 4th, 2003
Here’s a little spell to help you get control of your creativity. Prepare your sacred space as normal, then light two yellow or red candles and call upon your muses. Mix a half cup of sand with three teaspoons vervain in a small bowl. On the sand, focus your intention of being block-free. Suffuse the sand completely with your will. Hold an obsidian stone, ring, or pendant in your cupped hands, seeing it as an empty object ready to absorb the sand’s energy. Bury the obsidian in the sand for three days. Keep the stone with you when working, taking it in hand when you feel a creative lapse.

Meet Your Moon Sign

Meet Your Moon Sign

What do you need to feel happy, safe
and fulfilled?

by Emily Trinkaus

Everyone wants to feel good but how to get there varies significantly depending on your unique needs. While your Sun sign shows how you express your identity and shine your light out in the world, your Moon sign gives insight into your inner world, revealing what you need to feel safe, happy and comfortable.

The Moon moves so quickly — changing signs every two and a quarter days — that you need to know your time of birth in order to be sure about your Moon sign. Once you know your Moon sign, read below to discover your path to emotional fulfillment. Learning about a friend or loved one’s Moon sign is a great way to get deeper understanding into their needs and desires.

Moon in Aries
Aries is the warrior, and you need to express your fiery, creative and pioneering spirit. Ideally, you have a place in your life where you can take the lead and be number one, possibly within your home or family. To feel safe in relationships, you require honesty and directness — you prefer to experience conflict and get your emotions out in the open rather than gloss over unpleasantness for the sake of harmony.

Moon in Taurus
Your earthy, sensual and peace-loving temperament requires frequent communion with nature, and you appreciate having plants and animals in your home. You feel best when you have a stable routine, are surrounded by creature comforts and can indulge in the pleasures of the physical world. In relationships, you need loyalty, reliability and sensuality. Naturally grounded, you have the ability to remain calm even in the midst of crisis.

Moon in Gemini

With your Moon in the airy and mentally active sign of the Twins, staying connected with others through various forms of communication brings a feeling of security. You’re happiest when your ever-curious mind is being fed with new ideas and perspectives, and when you’re sharing the knowledge you’ve acquired. You need a steady flow of communication in relationships, and subscribe to the theory that variety is the spice of life.

Moon in Cancer

The Moon is strong in its home sign of Cancer, so lunar themes are prominent in your life — home, family, food and your inner world. You need plenty of time to devote to these realms. With your strong connection to the past — especially family and ancestors — you feel secure when surrounded by family photos or other mementos. You need nurturing relationships where you can share your deepest feelings and be treated with tenderness and sensitivity.

Moon in Leo

The Lion is the king of the jungle and you need to be treated like royalty — to feel special and be the center of attention. Leo also represents the archetype of the child, and playing and having fun are food for your soul. Expressing your creativity leads to satisfaction and is your best bet for avoiding emotional drama. You have a big heart and need to demonstrate your generosity, perhaps through entertaining in your home.

Moon in Virgo

Above all, you need to feel useful — to know that you’re contributing your skills and talents to a worthy cause. Order, efficiency and simplicity give you a feeling of comfort and ease — otherwise, you can be prone to overwhelm, worry and anxiety. You find security in the little things in life, and feel best when you’re in your own environment. You have high standards in relationships, and require reliability and responsibility from your partners.

Moon in Libra

Your inner world is symbolized by the Scales, giving you a strong need for balance, justice and harmony. You feel secure in peaceful and beautiful surroundings, while discord can throw you off-kilter. You enjoy an active social life, but withdrawing into solitude from time to time is essential to discover what you really want. Expressing your needs leads to genuine harmony — avoid the temptation to suppress your desires to please others.

Moon in Scorpio

With your Moon in the sign associated with the Underworld, you need to dive into the emotional depths. While other Moon signs may feel uncomfortable with emotional intensity, you thrive on it. Scorpio symbolizes the process of transformation and rebirth, and you need to engage with this process in some way — creativity, spirituality and psychology are some possible healthy outlets. In relationships, you require passion, depth and loyalty.

Moon in Sagittarius

You have the soul of a gypsy and need travel, freedom and adventure to feel fulfilled. Most of all, you require a lot of personal space — being tied down by routine or obligations stifles your spirit and dampens your naturally buoyant personality. Being active, including vigorous exercise, healthy competition and time in the wilderness helps you thrive. You’re happiest when you balance your physical activity with philosophical and spiritual exploration.

Moon in Capricorn

Your highly pragmatic Moon finds satisfaction through being productive and competent and by achieving your ambitious goals. You need to feel respected by others and are willing to earn this respect through hard work. Being organized and surrounded by the highest quality material objects gives you a sense of security. In relationships, you seek long-lasting quality, and are willing to wait for the best. You may need to let go of control and show vulnerability.

Moon in Aquarius

In an intellectual Air sign, your Moon requires mental stimulation and social activity. Aquarius is the sign of friendship and your many friends are likely to feel like family. You need an outlet for expressing your uniqueness and unconventional thoughts, perhaps through writing or another form of creativity. A sense of freedom and independence makes you feel secure in relationships while too much clinginess turns you off.

Moon in Pisces

Pisces represents dreams, fantasy, spirit and the imagination. To feel nurtured, you need to take regular time out from ordinary reality to connect with these other-worldly realms, whether through meditation, creative pursuits or daydreaming. Your highly sensitive nature easily picks up on others’ emotions, and you need solitude to identify your own feelings. You feel the urge to merge with others in relationships, but need to be careful not to lose yourself.
