The air is warm and sweet. Life is budding all around and May flowers stretch across a field of freshly paint greenery, the faint scent of their perfume on gentle warm breeze. My heart beats rapidly in anticipation and I look out over sunlight space seeking your face. A stream of electrified energy moves up my spine awakening all of my senses as I feel the heat of your breath at the back of my neck. I turn to face you and two small suns flash with desire from the depths of eyes that have lovingly gazed upon my face in seasons past. Breath hangs in the air suspended in timelessness as I, the Maiden, reach out to you, my consort. Earth and Sun sigh into the release of consummate union and passion’s light burns with heat and intensity, as each lover’s flame becomes the singular flame that fuels the passion of Beltane.

As the Wheel continues its cycle of light we turn our focus towards stimulating the dynamics of creation within. At the time of the Vernal Equinox we did the work of seeking balance and honoring the pause of that space strengthening an awareness illuminated by the potential that is held within the fertile space of manifest form. We found this space of balance within ourselves and opened in receipt of taking in more of the light continues to expand as it surrounds us outwardly. This opening to receiving the downpour of the light of growth was the preface to the union of the polarities at Beltane.

Now, at the time of Beltane we can use this illumined awareness to enjoy the blessings of manifest form. We are lit deeply from within and the light of that will to passion attracts to itself whatever is the object of its desire. We love and dance as we engage all of our senses in the beauty that springs forth from every space of earthly delights. We move around the phallus of maypole in a state of excited vibration seeing creative potential opening just as the flowers adorning it open to take in more of sun’s strengthening light. We nestle into hollow of fertile earth, seeking it as our only clothing of adornment as we become enraptured in the scent and physicality of earth in another’s body. We bring to life the seeds of our creative efforts and offer space for growth. It is of no matter how that new life takes form; physical and spiritual are equally important as one feeds the other and desire takes hold that is primal in instinct and pure in intention towards life.

This exchange of creative potency become the polarities of magnetic attraction that take the forms of male and female, God and Goddess and are the positive and negative charges needed to generate sufficient electrical current of vibrant and pulsing Light to flow and move towards a state of overt Life. This is the time of procreation and as such the continuation of what has been seeded within is ready to be conceptualized and brought forth into manifest form. Like attracts like and we use the electro-magnetic attraction of our inner sun to create the cycle of connection and flow to the physical sun. We open to receiving and mirroring back the life giving properties as above, so below, and what is conceived within, becomes the manifest expression of that creation without.

Astrologically, Beltane falls during the solar month of Taurus, the Bull and heralds the fecundity of the season and the promise of what may be gifted from the attraction of polarized opposites and their ultimate union. This is stable and strong energy that holds fast to the foundations of manifest form and life and ensures the cycle of life will continue. Steadfast in its purpose and reliable in its efforts, what flows during Beltane’s opening is a celebration of the desire to create and the strength of our physical form to act as container for this goal. The energy expend by the instinctive nature of the Bull effectively completes the work needed to sustain physical and emotional body. The off spring of its mating will maintain the work that was begun by the father that sired and the mother that birthed.

In ancient times the agricultural societies relied on the sexual union of maiden and youth and if the act was consummated in the fields it would ensure the fertility of the crops that would sustain and feed. The abandon of sexual coupling on May’s eve confirmed the connection to land and animal, desire and lust. Children born of these unions were blessings upon the communities and a sign that the natural world was full in its potential. The potent life force contained within sexual energy is a familiar concept that flows through many spiritual practices. The practice of sexual Tantra and the priestesses and priest that engage its principals direct the flow of this climatic energy towards effect in the spiritual planes and self-evolvement. The Great Rite of the Wiccan practice affirms the enlivening of this energy and even when practiced as the symbolic Great Rite (using athame and chalice as uniting tools rather than physical union) its energy is palpable and transformative in continuing the flow of magick begun. This is the Will to Life and the anchoring of this will in manifestation.

Beltane holds the key to uniting the energy of these polarities of our own being. The strength and physical tides held in the aspect that is of the God and the nurturing and healing of the Goddess. Coming to a place of acceptance and love of who we are and what creative potential we hold is consummating the relationship of the polarities within. Each polarity holds within itself the Divine spark of creation. As the potency of Beltane’s union reaches its climax, the two become as one, each offering freely of its own nature of positive and negative charge in creation of the flaming beacon that is the integrated whole of the enlivened and creative “you”, a child of physical union and a child of the cycle of Divine Light that seeks out itself within the flame of your seeding.

Bright Blessings of Fertility in All of Your Endeavors….

 

Happy Equinox!

Happy Equinox and a Full Moon of Promise

A Witch's Sacred Journey


I am posting the full article of this writing I did several years ago. The reminder of the many ways we change, just as the Goddess, Herself, does with the coming of every season is one that bears repeating. This is the season of Persephone and Demeter, Mother and Daughter, each an expression of the power to transform and quicken life anew.

It is also a Full Moon this equinox, so Mother Moon is shining brightly, radiant in her mantle as Spring Goddess and Mother Creatrix and in the beauty and harmony of astrological Libra. This energy holds the potential of being able to see not only the beauty that is held in the potential of Spring’s grace but also in the mantle and cloak that is presented. Whether it be the care and nurturance of the Mother or the youthful exuberance of the Maiden, life flows strong and abundantly…

Compassion?

Please enjoy this excerpt from my new post on Sage Woman blogs….

I am reminded as we move closer towards the beginnings, the beauty and fertility of Spring that we are once again provided with the opportunity to seed a new way of “Being”…

Have We Forgotten To Be Kind? Have We Forgotten To Be Understanding? Have We Forgotten Compassion?

Increasingly, we are faced with challenging decisions about who, when and what to let into our lives and space of concern and care. The communal approach is fraught with issues of trust and so our shields go up cutting us off from the vulnerability of feeling and seeing our own faults, especially when these are reflected back by another…..

S(now) Day!

A little snow musing from Wednesday. Enjoy…

The Enchanted Gate

There is silence when the snow falls
The world rebirthed in prisitine flakes.

Peace abounds and all stills in the call
Winter’s hold showering droplets of perfection.

Footsteps mark the path as dreamer walks

Glistening breath of Goddess and nature’s gift.

Wet and cold shivering in icy domain
Content and warm in beauty’s grasp.

The silence calls
The wind blows
The bells shimmer and ring

I AM COMPLETE…

Super Full Moon in Virgo

This morning the moon waxes Full in the astrological sign of Virgo, and holds the auspicious designation of being a “Supermoon”. Virgo is of the earth energy and as a Mutable Modality, that structure and strength of manifest strivings out-picture as analytical scrutiny and filter of whatever comes into the purview of Virgo’s application. In this case, the watery depths of emotion’s gate-Mother Moon in her glorious fullness-receives the potent restraints and filters of earth’s shorelines.

Additionally, this moon is a “Supermoon”. A supermoon occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth and in this case when Full it appears (to the naked eye) slightly larger and its effects on the tides is felt more significantly particularly, 2-4 days after the Full Moon occurrence.

On my way into work this morning (still dark) I came out of my house to greet a beautiful, bright and huge moon that remained along my route to work……

Temple of the Cosmic Spheres


January 28.2019

I chose to wait for today to post, rather than join in the plethora of posting regarding the recent Super Full Moon. Today the Moon wanes in 4th Qrt. and astrological Scorpio is ever present in the world’s affairs. Scorpio promises an opening of your senses, both psychic and physical, but you must first be willing to surrender to those darker waters and descend into a realm of complexity and mystery. This, of course is only one aspect of the trinity of Scorpio’s assignations- the Scorpion (much darker and unpredictable)- the Eagle (more selective and discerning in its energy) and the Phoenix (the rendering of resistance and the blazing energy that heals and conquers).

What I have chosen for today is the much darker aspect, the space of allowing yourself to surrender and dissolve into the darkness of your nature, so that healing and reconciliation may begin, rendering…
