Deity of the Day for Feb. 23rd – Ganesha, Hindu Elephant-Deity

Lord of Success

All About the Hindu Elephant-Deity

 

Ganesha — the elephant-deity riding a mouse — has become one of the commonest mnemonics for anything associated with Hinduism. This not only suggests the importance of Ganesha, but also shows how popular and pervasive this deity is in the minds of the masses.

The Lord of Success
The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja.

Significance of the Ganesha Form
Ganesha’s head symbolizes the Atman or the soul, which is the ultimate supreme reality of human existence, and his human body signifies Maya or the earthly existence of human beings. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. In his upper right hand Ganesha holds a goad, which helps him propel mankind forward on the eternal path and remove obstacles from the way. The noose in Ganesha’s left hand is a gentle implement to capture all difficulties.

The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The laddoo (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the Atman. His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition. The snake that runs round his waist represents energy in all forms. And he is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse.

How Ganesha Got His Head
The story of the birth of this zoomorphic deity, as depicted in the Shiva Purana, goes like this: Once goddess Parvati, while bathing, created a boy out of the dirt of her body and assigned him the task of guarding the entrance to her bathroom. When Shiva, her husband returned, he was surprised to find a stranger denying him access, and struck off the boy’s head in rage. Parvati broke down in utter grief and to soothe her, Shiva sent out his squad (gana) to fetch the head of any sleeping being who was facing the north. The company found a sleeping elephant and brought back its severed head, which was then attached to the body of the boy. Shiva restored its life and made him the leader (pati) of his troops. Hence his name ‘Ganapati’. Shiva also bestowed a boon that people would worship him and invoke his name before undertaking any venture.

However, there’s another less popular story of his origin, found in the Brahma Vaivarta Purana: Shiva asked Parvati to observe the punyaka vrata for a year to appease Vishnu in order to have a son. When a son was born to her, all the gods and goddesses assembled to rejoice on its birth. Lord Shani, the son of Surya (Sun-God), was also present but he refused to look at the infant. Perturbed at this behaviour, Parvati asked him the reason, and Shani replied that his looking at baby would harm the newborn. However, on Parvati’s insistence when Shani eyed the baby, the child’s head was severed instantly. All the gods started to bemoan, whereupon Vishnu hurried to the bank of river Pushpabhadra and brought back the head of a young elephant, and joined it to the baby’s body, thus reviving it.

Ganesha, the Destroyer of Pride
Ganesha is also the destroyer of vanity, selfishness and pride. He is the personification of material universe in all its various magnificent manifestations. “All Hindus worship Ganesha regardless of their sectarian belief,” says D N Singh in A Study of Hinduism. “He is both the beginning of the religion and the meeting ground for all Hindus.”

Ganesh Chaturthi
The devotees of Ganesha are known as ‘Ganapatyas’, and the festival to celebrate and glorify him is called Ganesh Chaturthi.

Deity of the Day for February 19th is Juno, The Roman Goddess

Deity of the Day

 Juno

The Roman Goddess

 

Areas of Influence: Juno was the Goddess of marriage, pregnancy and childbirth.

She was the Queen of the Gods and part of the Capitoline triad that also included Minerva and Jupiter.

This Deity was an embodiment of the traditional female roles of wife and mother.

One of her titles was Lucino (meaning light) as she helped to bring children into the light of this world at birth. She was also said to set and strengthen a child’s bones.

She was also Goddess of conception, a Goddess to be called upon in labour and one who helped settle disagreements between spouses.

Juno protected the finances of the Roman people. In this role she was the patron Goddess of the royal mint.

Before she absorbed many of Hera’s characteristics several scholars suggest that she was a Maiden Goddess.

The Month of June was named after her and it was considered the most favourable month to get married in.

Her other claim to fame is that as an archetypal figure she appears in Shakespeare’s play The Tempest.

Each Roman woman was said to have her own Juno which represented her female spirit.

Origins and Genealogy: According to later Roman myths she was the sister and consort of Jupiter and the mother of Mars, Hebe and Vulcan.

Mars was conceived when the Goddess was imoregnated by a flower.

Strengths: Leadership and a loyal wife.

Weaknesses: Jealousy and vindictiveness.

 Symbolism

This Roman Goddess had a more warlike nature than Hera and was often depicted in a goat skin coat that was favoured among Roman soldiers.

She was also able to throw lightning bolts like her husband Jupiter.

Sacred Birds: Geese and peacocks.

Sacred Plants: The wild fig tree.

Festivals: A special ceremony was dedicated to her in the home to celebrate the begining of each lunar month.

Her main festival, the Matronalia was held on 1st March. On this day married woman asked their husbands to give them money to make offerings to the Goddess.

A smaller celebration known as the Nonae Caprotinae took place on 7th July.

Greek and Etruscan Equivalents: The Goddess Hera was the Greek equivalent to Juno.

Uni was the Etruscan Goddess who shared many similarities with this De

Juno’s Archetypes

The Queen :

In the positive aspect the Queen represents the regal feminine. Using her benevolent authority to protect others. This Archetype can signify the power of women who rule over anything from the office to the home environment.

The shadow aspect reflects the tendency to become arrogant, controlling and aggressive when challenged.

As Queen of the Roman pantheon Hera has power and authority. Like her Greek counterpart, Hera, she misuses her position when she feels threatened.

The Companion:

This stereotype is loyal, tenacious and unselfish in their service to a more authoritive figure. In this relationship she provides the with emotional and practical support to enable her partner to concentrate on his mission. This was long considered the traditional role of the wife.

The shadow Companion manifests as betrayal, breaking confidences and identity loss through constantly suppressing your own needs.

Despite her husbands numerous affairs Juno remained loyal to her husband.

How To Work With These Archetypes

The Queen:

The Queen asks whether you rule over your domain fairly, protecting every body’s rights and feelings.

Or do you need to look at patterns of trying to control others to protect your own emotional and personal position? If this is one of your patterns, you need to ask yourself what are you afraid of losing and where does that fear stem from ?

The Companion:

Do you have a long history of playing the loyal Companion to other people? Are you happy with this role or do you feel that the partnership is unequal and resent the fact that your needs are not being met? How do you express this resentment?

The shadow aspect of the Companion suggests you look at ways at achieving a better balance. Begin to rediscover who you are and what you want in life and allow time to follow your own interests.

Deity of the Day for Feb. 16th is Eirene, Greek Goddess of Peace

Deity of the Day

Eirene

The Greek Goddess of Peace

Eirene Greek goddess of peace was said to be the daughter of Zeus and Themis. She was one of the Horae, and her sisters were Eunomia (goddess of order, law and legislation) and Dike (goddess of moral justice). The Horae were also goddesses of the seasons (spring, summer and autumn in Greece) and Irene was the goddess associated with spring and all things blooming.

She was represented with a cornucopia, a sceptre and a torch. In art, she was depicted as a beautiful young woman. In one of the most famous statues from the Greek antiquity, Eirene Greek goddess of peace holds in her left arm baby Ploutos, the god of wealth and plenty. This statue was sculpted by Cephisodotus the Elder (father of Praxiteles) and was located in the agora of Athens, to celebrate the Common Peace of 371 BC (i.e. peace between all parts involved in a war, not just bilateral peace established between two cities). This statue was a reminder for everyone that properity flourishes when there is peace.

In Aristophanes’ comedy called Peace, Trygaeus, a citizen of Athens, flies on a giant dung beetle to the house of the gods in heavens, because he wants to plead with them to restore peace on earth. There, he only finds Hermes, who tells him that the other gods are sick of war and of the prayers of the mortals and just went away. Only Polemos (War) lives there now. He imprisoned Peace in a cavern and we wants to grind all Greeks to paste, in a giant mortar.

When War goes looking for an adequate pestle, Trygaeus calls all Greeks to come and free Peace. All kind of Greeks, from many city-states, come to the rescue. Those who work most are the farmers, because they are those who appreciate Peace more.

In the end, Eirene/Peace is freed, but she does not want to speak to the Greeks: she is angry with them because they made her suffer. She whispers in Hermes’ ear that she offered Greeks truces, many times, but they all spoke in the assembly against her and in favour of War. Trygaeus apologizes for all his countrymen.

When he returns on earth, Trygaeus prepares a sacrifice for Eirene Greek goddess of peace, but a slave tells him not to kill the lamb on the goddess’ altar, because she hates to see blood.

The Chorus sings about how nice it is to spend winter afternoons with friends, in front of the fire and enjoying the good life in times of peace, as opposed to having to do the regimental drill in times of war.

Now, that Eirene came back to Greece, the businesses of the sickle maker and of the jar makers flourish again, while those who make weapons and war equipment should reconvert their object: Trygaeus suggests that spears should be turned into vine poles, helmet crests should be used as dusters and breastplates as chamber pots!

Deities of Love and Marriage


Miscellaneous & Cute Valentines Day Comments
Deities of Love and Marriage

By Patti Wigington, Paganism/Wicca Expert
Article Is Found On & Owned by About.com

 

Throughout history, nearly all cultures have had gods and goddesses associated with love and marriage. Although a few are male — Eros and Cupid come to mind — most are female, because the institution of marriage has long been viewed as the domain of women. If you’re doing a working relating to love, or if you wish to honor a particular deity as part of a marriage ceremony, these are some of the gods and goddesses associated with the very human emotion of love.

 

• Aphrodite (Greek)
Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of love and sexuality, a job she took very seriously. She was married to Hephaistos, but also had a multitude of lovers — one of her favorites was the warrior god Ares. A festival was held regularly to honor Aphrodite, appropriately called the Aphrodisiac. At her temple in Corinth, revelers often paid tribute to Aphrodite by having rambunctious sex with her priestesses. The temple was later destroyed by the Romans, and not rebuilt, but fertility rites appear to have continued in the area. Like many Greek gods, Aphrodite spent a lot of time meddling in the lives of humans — particularly their love lives — and was instrumental in the cause of the Trojan War.

 

• Cupid (Roman)
In ancient Rome, Cupid was the incarnation of Eros, the god of lust and desire. Eventually, though, he evolved into the image we have today of a chubby cherub, flitting about zapping people with his arrows. In particular, he enjoyed matching people up with odd partners, and this eventually ended up being his own undoing, when he fell in love with Psyche. Cupid was the son of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. He typically is seen on Valentine’s Day cards and decorations, and is invoked as a god of pure love and innocence — a far cry from his original form.
• Eros (Greek)
Although not specifically a god of love, Eros is often invoked as a god of lust and passion. This son of Aphrodite was a Greek god of lust and primal sexual desire. In fact, the word erotic comes from his name. He is personified in all kinds of love and lust — heterosexual and homosexual — and was worshipped at the center of a fertility cult that honored both Eros and Aphrodite together. During the classical Roman period, Eros evolved into Cupid, and became portrayed as the chubby cherub that still remains as a popular image today. He is typically shown blindfolded — because, after all, love is blind — and carrying a bow, with which he shot arrows at his intended targets.

 

• Frigga (Norse)
Frigga was the wife of the all-powerful Odin, and was considered a goddess of fertility and marriage within the Norse pantheon. Frigga is the only one besides Odin who is allowed to sit on his throne, Hlidskjalf, and she is known in some Norse tales as the Queen of Heaven. Today, many modern Norse Pagans honor Frigga as a goddess of both marriage and prophecy.

 

• Hathor (Egyptian)
As the wife of the Sun God, Ra, Hathor is known in Egyptian legend as the patroness of wives. In most classical depictions, she is portrayed either as a cow goddess, or with a cow nearby — it is her role as mother that is most often seen. However, in later periods, she was associated with fertility, love and passion.

 

• Hera (Greek)
Hera was the Greek goddess of marriage, and as the wife of Zeus, Hera was the queen of all wives! Although Hera fell in love with Zeus (her brother) immediately, he isn’t often faithful to her, so Hera spends a lot of time fighting off her husband’s numerous lovers. Hera is centered around the hearth and home, and focuses on family relationships.

 

• Juno (Roman)
In ancient Rome, Juno was the goddess who watched over women and marriage. Although Juno’s festival, the Matronalia, was actually celebrated in March, the month of June was named for her. It’s a month for weddings and handfastings, so she is often honored at Litha, the time of the summer solstice. During the Matronalia, women received gifts from their husbands and daughters, and gave their female slaves the day off work.

 

• Parvati (Hindu)
Parvati was the consort of the Hindu god Shiva, and is known as a goddess of love and devotion. She is one of many forms of Shakti, the all-powerful female force in the universe. Her union with Shiva taught him to embrace pleasure, and so in addition to being a destroyer god, Shiva is also a patron of the arts and dance. Parvati is an example of a female entity who has a profound effect on the male in her life, for without her, Shiva would not have been complete.

 

• Venus (Roman)
The Roman equivalent of Aphrodite, Venus was a goddess of love and beauty. Originally, she was associated with gardens and fruitfulness, but later took on all the aspects of Aphrodite from the Greek traditions. Similar to Aphrodite, Venus took a number of lovers, both mortal and divine. Venus is nearly always portrayed as young and lovely. The statue Aphrodite of Milos, better known as the Venus de Milo, depicts the goddess as classically beautiful, with womanly curves and a knowing smile.

 

• Vesta (Roman)
Although Vesta was actually a goddess of virginity, she was honored by Roman women along with Juno. Vesta’s status as a virgin represented the purity and honor of Roman women at the time of their marriage, and so it was important to keep her in high regard. In addition to her role as virgin-in-chief, however, Vesta is also a guardian of the hearth and domesticity. Her eternal flame burned in many Roman villages. Her festival, the Vestalia, was celebrated each year in June.

Working with Goddess


Goddess Comments & Graphics

Working with Goddess

The essence of it is to let yourself see how much clinging to how you want your life to be
is nothing more than a process of self-torture.
Drop it, and allow yourself to fall openly and unguardedly
in love with your life as it is and everything in it.

 

As living in Her reflection, working with Goddess is a lifestyle as well. Creating habits that allow your workings to be unconscious as well as conscious. To engage in a journey that takes you from living outside yourself to processing the world inside. This means bringing light to your inner shadow aspects that are primary rooted in fear patterns that have more control over your behavior than does your conscious mind. This limits your ability to make choices in which you are aware of your motivations. Where to begin? Do your best even if you make apparent mistakes. How are you to judge if they are mistakes? Thoughts generate and release energy and if repeated with intent can be a powerful source of energy. Thus, as we control negative or judgmental thoughts we improve our lives. Positive thinking harms none and is expressions of our Spirituality by honoring Goddess through honoring self.

 

As you grow in the path of Goddess and your senses awaken you will also need to incorporate in your daily grooming habits of cleansing your energy. You will undoubtedly learn, intuition is both a blessing and a curse. The blessing is that we are able to know the true desires of others and their need of us. The curse is that we become emotionally and physically clogged by garbage that is not ours, sometimes without even being aware of it. We are not meant to carry the load of another for carrying their burdens does nothing to lesson their load unless with detachment you are able to offer a hand to lift them up opposed to swimming in the pit with them. Below are but a few suggestions, the important thing is to make it a habit and lifestyle.

 

*Cleansing and anointing your charkas in your morning/nightly bath with your personal seal of magick-. A pentagram drawn with an affirmation spoken with each stroke. An example;
Crown-let me be awaken to you, Third Eye-let me see with your eyes, Throat- let me speak with your voice, Heart- let me love in your glory, Solar- let me walk in your light, Sacral- let me feel in your passion, Root- let me live in your sanctuary.

 

*Anointing just your third eye or any part of your body with a pentagram drawn with an affirmation spoken with each stroke.. An example;
Let me be awaken to you, see with your eyes, hear with your ears, speak with your lips and love with your heart.

 

*Make your daily shower/bath a cleansing bath with affirmations, oils, and herbs. Honor the Goddess of self and sooth Her with your touch and nurturing.

 

*Create Circle every morning by invoking a sacred space that flows with you. The words can be altered to say – To guard my Circle and witness my Rite, my Circle is my day and my Rite is my life, let the Circle fade with days end.

 

*Pray with the opening of your eyes every morning and the closing of them at night. Pray and give thanks with every meal. Pray before every encounter you dread through out your day. Pray with every unexpected encounter that gives you stress. Pray and give thanks with every omen that crosses your path. It does not have to be a drop to your knees prayer, it can be a few words with eyes wide open and life continuing forward, pray to the universe and be connected with Goddess.

 

*Honor your existence. Be aware of the smells around you, the creatures and plants, the tastes of all you eat and the dreams that fill your idle time. Grant yourself time to live this day in many dimensions.

 

*Love freely as does Goddess. Love for the sake of love, without boundaries of old programming.

 

*Share Goddess of self with others- a kind word, encouragement or just recognizing they too or a child of Goddess struggling as Spiritual beings to be human. Bless and honor their path.

 

*Speak your truth. One sentence at a time be heard. Let compassion and wisdom be your guide. Let judgmental ways have no place in your heart.

 

*Create sacred space in your daily environment. Create beauty that reflects what Goddess is to you. Be it a stone that reminds you of Her ageless strength, a picture of a Goddess you draw strength from or totems that have personal meanings. Surround yourself with Goddess.

 

*Strive everyday in your thoughts to work towards your dream. Do not settle, maintain while working towards living authentic.

Living in the Reflection of Goddess


Goddess Comments & Graphics

Living in the Reflection of Goddess

We have not even to risk the journey alone, for the ancient ones have gone before us.
The labyrinth is thoroughly known.
We have only to follow the path and where we had thought to find an abomination,
we shall find Goddess.
And where we had thought to travel outward, we will have come to the center of our existence.
And where we had thought to be alone we shall be 0ne with all.

 

Our consciousness is a property of our biological being. At the deepest levels of our biological being, all consciousness in the universe is linked in a galactic web of mutual awareness- the very being of Goddess in which we live. The isolated individual does not exist but is an illusion of the Earth plane of which our physical bodies live this life.

Telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, tele-transportation, shape shifting, and healing are not powers learned, they are natural powers forgotten. In our original state of being, we live in ecstasy, filled with these powers. It is when our social conscious charkas rule or higher charkas of consciousness that we lose this ecstasy.

It is in remembering our souls connection to the beginning and to the end. In remembering the primal consciousness of oneness between all living things we are empowered with what is naturally our senses. As daughters of the Goddess, human females designed by evolution it’s self that we are the link between biological energy and the soul of life. We must return to that time, in our genetic memory, in our dreams, in a place of our existence today where we are one with all that is.

Goddess is not something to be turn on and off with whims of magick. Goddess is a lifestyle lived with such passion ones senses becomes ones daily magick. Live from your heart and live creatively. Live feminine, authentic and in a life affirming choice rather than the dream depleting system the Spirit blind would choose for you. Start taking steps towards your dreams, taking risk both big and small. Fill your life with beauty; a branch of winter’s transition placed upon your desk, a beautiful picture tape to your daily coffee mug and wonderful candles to light your table. Indulge in scents and scarves that remind you of your own divine feminine. Listen to beautiful wordless music to allow your thoughts freedom rather than to be filled with the thoughts of others.

Take time to educate yourself by reading self-help books, holistic health, feminism, mythology and Spirituality. Cook and eat healthy, blessing all that nourishes your body. Garden, paint, write and spend time in prayer and meditation. Get involved in the world around you and remove the blinders. Be for peace and support those in office who are for change in the world.

Empower and heal your self by supporting other women both professionally and personally. Teach your children integrity, honestly and the sacredness of all life through Spirit. Speak your truth, stand up for it and teach your truth to the children. Choose uniqueness, beauty and quality combined with a willingness to make a difference in the world.

Take time for Goddess in your daily life, your every moment and your every breath. This is where one begins and where one returns when one forgets.

Who is Goddess


Goddess Comments & Graphics

Who is Goddess

Before ever land was, before ever the sea,
Or soft hair of grass, or fair limbs of tree,
Or flesh colored fruit of my branches, I WAS….

 
And thou soul was in me…The Goddess is diversity. She is both darkness and light and her worship is the reconciliation of opposites. To walk true in a path that is a reflection of her one must achieve balance that is the acceptance of multiple truths and paths. For the reality of one is not the reality of another but all are the diversity that is Goddess. For two and a half BILLION years Earth was a female sea and all life forms existed in Her womb, an environment nourished and protected by her fluids and rocked by Her lunar tides. This translates to “life’s longest period of existence on Earth was dominated by life reproducing parthenogenetically”, a female existence reproducing it’s self within the female body of the sea.

 

The ocean – the protective and nourishing space, the amniotic fluids, even the lunar tidal rhythms was mimicked by the daughter cells of life born of the sea. Two and a half BILLION years this was life slowly evolving until a fundamental recurring pattern in nature would have it’s beginning; Life in a female environment in which males appear, often periodically, and created by the female, to perform highly specialized tasks related to species reproduction and a more complex evolution.

 

Among mammals, even among humans, Parthenogenesis is not technically impossible. Every female egg contains a polar body with a complete set of chromosomes; the polar body and the egg, if united, could form a daughter embryo. In fact ovarian cysts are unfertilized eggs hat have join with their polar body, implanted into the ovarian wall and started to develop there. Certainly this is not to say the sexual reproduction from the sperm of males enhances the gene pool that is necessary for the complex evolution the human race has become. The point is one sex has been around a lot longer and would evolve to be life in what manner would dictate its existence as it has since the beginning of time, as we know it.

And you who would think to seek for me-
Know that your seeking and yearning will avail you naught
Unless you know the mystery:
That if what you seek you find not within you,
You shall never find it without.
For behold: I have been with you from the beginning,
And I am that which is attained at the end of desires.

 

Now to understand Goddess of self we must realize we too began our life as a single fertilized cell, or zygote. In the process of innumerable divisions and multiplications, that cell kept dividing up and redistributing that very same protoplasm that coursed through the body of the original zygote. No matter how many times a cell fissions in the process of embryological development, all the daughter cells collectively continue to comprise but one singular organism. All life on Earth comprises the body of a single vast living being- Mother Earth Herself.The Goddess is all that is, Mother of all, sons as well as daughters. Sons born of Her body and nourished by Her breast are born to be her lovers as well.

 

In no Goddess religions know were people depicted on their knees. Patriarchy, by force would change this. God as creator carries within it’s self the necessity for a tightly controlled class-caste society. Only through the creation of life through human mothers can male god claim glory for himself? The woman at best glorified as the vessel of manifestation of Him. Terms and definitions developed to define one’s belief and silence the truths of another.

 

Monotheism (in Greek monon = single and Theos = God) is the belief in a single, universal, all-encompassing deity.
*Pantheism (Greek: pan = all and Theos = God) literally means “God is All” and “All is God”. It is the view that everything is of an all-encompassing immanent God; or that the universe, or nature, and God are equivalent. More detailed definitions tend to emphasize the idea that natural law, existence, and/or the universe (the sum total of all that is was and shall be) is represented or personified in the theological principle of ‘God’.
*Panentheism (Greek words: pan=all, en=in and Theos=God; “God-in-all”) is the view that God is immanent within all Creation or that God is the animating force behind the universe. Unlike pantheism, panentheism does not mean that the universe is all God or that God contains the universe inside Godself. In panentheism, God maintains a transcendent character, and is viewed as both the creator and the original source of universal morality.

 

Polytheism (Greek words: poly=many, Theos = God) literally means “many gods.”. It is the belief in, or worship of, multiple gods or divinities. Most ancient religions were polytheistic, holding to pantheons of traditional deities, often accumulated over centuries of cultural interchange and experience.

As daughters of Goddess we know the truth.
The Earth does not belong to us we belong to the Earth.
All things are connected like the blood that unites one family.
Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the children of Earth.
We did not weave the web of life we are but a strand in it.Whatever we do to the web we do to our self.

 

As daughters of Goddess, one with the very cell of lifes beginning we embrace the diversity of all beliefs. All beliefs being Goddess manifesting in truths that answers one’s need to connect with Mother. We are Monotheisitc in our belief that all dieties are ultimately one, the Creatrix of life. We are Patheistic as we embrace the knoweledge that all is Goddess. We are Panenthsitic as we are fill with Goddess of self and we are Polythetistic as we worship the many aspect of Goddess.

 

The Goddess is diversity. She is both what has been and what is to come. To walk true in a path that is a reflection of Her one must achieve balance that is the acceptance of life is ever evolving yet ever spiraling to it’s beginning. This is the true empowerment of Her mysteries. These are Her endless gifts of cosmic awareness that is magick in its truest form as a Witch. In realizing this grand scale of self, what we choose to call forth of self is endless. To see Goddess as the nurturing Mother or to see her as the great winds that brush across your face, it is your passion for Her that gives life to what you seek.
