The Goddess Companion

In fall Freya left us
traveling southward.
Now she returns again,
bringing soft words.
Out of her golden hair
spring flowers fall
tumbling like melodies,
sounding the call.
Chaste through the winter
women now pine,
wanting their lovers home
sharing the wine.
~Scandinavian Song To The Goddess Of Spring
In northern lands, the spring Goddess was embodied by the sun. During the winter, she retreated southward, so that by midwinter she rose only briefly each day, setting hastily and leaving the lands in cold and dark. But as spring approaches, she stays longer and longer each day, shedding warmth on her people. As the equinox nears, bringing balance between light and dark, the sun brings back growth and seasonal change.
The ancient Scandinavians recognized that the human reaction to increasing daylight was return of interest in connecting with others – through lust as well as through love. They acknowledged, as did many other people, the way the sap rises in our bodies as well as in the trees and plants around us. Celebrating the fruitfulness of our womanly bodies is a way to celebrate the Goddess. And at no time is her energy stronger than in early spring.

Spell Of The Day – Save-A-Fortune Spell

Spell Of The Day – Save-A-Fortune Spell

To save for a trip to a foreign land, collect coins from foreign countries – as many from the ones you want to visit as possible.
Infuse the coins with a money scent such as patchouli. Place them on a picture of a land you want to visit, and say:
With these coins from foreign shores
From thee, Goddess, I implore.
Money multiply in this space.
Take me to this sacred place!
Leave this on an altar you will pass often. Every now and then add another coin to your altar, repeat the spell and wait
for your trip savings to expand.

Goddess Of The Day: HERA

Goddess Of The Day:  HERA
Daedala (Greece)
Themes: Love; Romance; Forgiveness; Humor
Symbols: Oak; Myrrh; Poppy
About Hera: Hera rules the earth, its people, and the hearts of those people. Using passion and creativity, Hera nudges star-crossed lovers together, chaperones trysts, and helps struggling marriages with a case of spring twitterpation!
Legend tells us that Hera refused to return to Zeus’s bed because of a quarrel. Zeus, however, had a plan. He humorously dressed up a wooden figure to look like a bride and declared he was going to marry. When Hera tore off the dummy’s clothes and discovered the ruse, she was so amused and impressed by Zeus’s ingenuity that she forgave him.
To Do Today: Ancient Greeks honored Hera and Zeus’s reconciliation today, often in the company of old oak trees. Small pieces of fallen wood are collected to symbolize the divinities, then burned on the ritual fire to keep love warm. To mirror this custom, find a fallen branch and burn a small part of it as an offering to Hera. Keep the rest to use as a goddess image year-round, burning a few slivers whenever love needs encouragement.
Present someone you love or admire with a poppy today to symbolically bestow Hera’s blessings on your relationship. If you have a loved one away from home, burn some myrrh incense in front of their picture so Hera can watch over them and keep that connection strong.

Greetings on the 10th day of March with the theme of Balance.

Greetings on the 10th day of March with the theme of Balance. 
This is a Receiving/Accepting Affirmation in the second week of the month. 
Make this a balanced day!

I allow balance to flow through me and to act as me.

Today’s affirmation challenges us to BECOME balance, to BE balance.  As
balance flows through us, we become familiar with its vibration.  In order
for something to “act as” us, we must become it.  We must BE what we
desire.  Balance is not something outside ourselves, but inside.  Other
people’s perceptions of our sense of balance may be interesting
information (worthy of an appropriate amount of our attention as a piece
of data), yet our own perceptions about balance are essential for our
health and satisfaction.

To enhance your process as you say or work with today’s affirmation,
consider these questions.  As you FEEL balance flow through you, what does
it feel like?  As you SEE balance flow through you, what does it look
like?  As you SENSE balance flow through you, what do you sense?  As you
LISTEN to the sounds of balance, what do you hear?  As you VIBRATE to
balance, what do you become?  These questions expand your consciousness
about balance so that you can more easily become at one with it.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for 3/10

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:

61: Centering in Truth

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Hexagram 61
General Meaning: Truth involves establishing an aware relationship between your inner core and the circumstances in your life. Centering in truth involves the ability to perceive a fundamental wisdom, reflected within yourself and the people you know.

Truth is transformed into power when you dissolve prejudice and make yourself receptive to the world as it really is. Truth’s power can be a remarkable force indeed — yet is rarer than generally imagined. It can be maintained only by cultivating a genuine openness to things as they are — a willingness to see, rather than merely look.

Whenever your inner life is clouded, your influence in the world is under a shadow. If you are fearful, you will be attacked; if you cloak genuine mysteries in dogma, opportunities for new insight will be lost. If you vacillate in upholding your principles, you will be tested. Yet, when you are firm and strong, the power of truth can break through even the most stubborn minds.

In any debate, the power to perceive the truth in the other side’s argument is essential to achieving success. It is possible to influence even the most difficult people, or improve the most difficult circumstance, through the power of universal truth — for unvarnished truth is something to which all things naturally respond. Get in touch with the part of yourself that is aware of this universal force. Cultivate this inner resource, and you will become adept at using it to bond with others to support a common purpose.

Today’s Tarot Card for 3/10

Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:


This Tarot Deck: Goddess

General Meaning: What has traditionally been known as the Strength card represents Nature which, however wild in its primal form, is tamed by our subtler, finer (feminine, interior) self. The will and passion of our instinctive nature does not need to be broken, but refined and brought to consciousness — so that all levels of Creation, inner and outer, may come into harmony.

The feminine soul-force contains a persuasive power that can nurture and induce cooperation from others, stilling disruptive energies by harmonizing differences in the spirit of collective good will.
