Pallas Athene, Goddess of War, born fully armored from the forehead of her father Zeus, without interference of woman. I always include Pallas Athene in the chart, but I don't like her very much. She is patriarchy's daughter, signalling the defeat of the Feminine, and complete co-opting of Divine Feminine Power by the patriarchy. I am still working out what she means in the Divine Feminine Astrology Readings. Then, the 2 of Swords keeps showing up in Tarot readings. In the Dark Goddess Tarot, Athena is the 2 of Air (Swords) card. From the Dark Goddess Tarot by Ellen Lorenzi-Prince... Continue reading

Oh Lilith! You are feminine RAGE personified. The Divine Lilith has many faces. She's Adam's First Wife – the one who would not submit to him. She's Inanna's handmaiden, who lures men and gods into the temples of the sacred prostitutes. She's known as baby killer, man emasculator, woman temptor … DEMON! You find Lilith in the Triple Goddess – she has her maiden, mother, and crone aspects. I see her as a permaculture goddess, because she was formed of fertile earth, rich humus, and ready to be seeded by life! Where you find Lilith, you find rage unleashed! She... Continue reading

Vesta is the Goddess the Hearth, the keeper of the sacred flame of the home and the temple. She is a Virgin goddess, representing the complete wholeness of the Divine Feminine. In Roman times, her priestesses were Keepers of the Eternal Flame of Rome in the Temple of Vesta. Their duty to maintain the flame was so important to the health of the state that the Vestal Virgins held high status in the Empire. They had to remain "virgin" on pain of death until their 30 year term of service was complete. The Goddess' power and her priestesses were thus... Continue reading

Blessings and joy in this sacred time of year! In the Northern Hemisphere, we have just celebrated the Winter Solstice, honoring the darkness of the longest night, and celebrating the return of the Light. Now we are celebrating Christmas. The Christmas season commemorates the birth of a Child, and the Child is the center of ritual. But the Story of Christmas is really a story of the Womb of the Divine Feminine. The Sacred Womb that gives birth to a Holy Child is a story older than Christianity. Mother Mary and her son Jesus belong to a long history of... Continue reading

Last night I dreamed of my Mother, Nancy. My brothers and I were also in the dream as young adults. My mother was a high school teacher, and she was 5 months pregnant. She was in a rough school, and she was being bullied by students. White blond male students. Her pregnancy made her even more vulnerable, and her position was dangerous. She was on bed rest and also could not stop her job. My brothers and I were worried and wanted to protect her. My father was not in the dream at all. At some point in the dream,... Continue reading

To live in your Feminine Power, you must tend to your sexual erotic energy, your Sacred Fire. The first step to cultivating your erotic energy is to *** decide that you are worth it,*** because the way to stoke your feminine erotic fire is self-care and self-love. Back in October I did a Facebook live on the core feminine wound. The feminine wound says: I am unworthy. Because I am female, I am less than. When you make the decision to stoke your inner sexual fire, you will activate your wound. The ways that you feel unworthy will show up... Continue reading

In the Samhain season, we honor our Ancestors. I honor my DNA parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents, all the way back to the beginning of time. The Ancestry I wish to honor in this season comes through the lineages of my teachers who have taught me and healed me, my Spiritual Ancestors. I feel such gratitude for the priestesses and medicine people who have been my guides into the Divine Feminine. I honor the priestess of my initiation, Nut Tmu-Ankh Butterfly Dreaming, who mentored me in the Temple of Wombn 10 Moon initiation and Orgasmic Alchemy. I honor my teacher Grandfather...

“In the dark hours of Saturday morning, I saw a vision.” This happened three years ago, right after the San Bernardino, CA, mass murder. It is the story of my Cone of Power Painting. First, I must acknowledge this horror: On Saturday morning, at the very moment we were gathered in the Womb Wisdom Portal to womb center at the Sun-Venus conjunction, a gunman was shooting people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh. This happened days after a racist killing spree at a supermarket in Kentucky, and a politically motivated bomb scare. I am devastated by this violence and the national... Continue reading

The energy of the Cancer New Moon and solar eclipse is whooshing us with some big power! This weekend I will attend Healing Turtle Island ceremonies hosted by Sherri Mitchell - Wena'hamu'gwasit of the Penobscot people of Maine. She writes: “Our ancestors tell us that the Eastern Door is where we will gather to begin the healing of this land. It is here in the East where first contact was made between the Native peoples and the newcomers. It is here that the first blood was spilled between our people, and the long history of violence began. And, it is... Continue reading

Boundaries are up in my world these days. Clients, friends, myself are all feeling the shock of having boundaries violated in some way. It is time to write a series of articles about boundaries: What they are and are not Different kinds of boundaries How they work How you find your own boundaries and hold them. Boundaries are not one thing, they are many things. Some boundaries are hard lines that you do not allow crossing at all. Some boundaries are frontiers that are areas to explore for growth and adventure and fun. Some boundaries belong to others in our... Continue reading

One year ago I was beginning the grueling process of getting my old farmhouse ready to put on the market. I was beginning the hard emotional work of letting go of 24 years of my home, my family, my late husband, my successes, and some broken dreams and failures along the way. I didn't know what what coming... whether Charlie and I would stay together, whether I would have the money to live, a home somewhere, or a room in someone's attic. (I can get melodramatic when facing big change!) Now a year later, I can look back on a... Continue reading

Thank you Kathleen. That's a start. When we can be neighbors and friends with people, that matters. There are other things, the invisible white privilege, the thousands of reasons people of color don't trust white people that we don't see from our position, and yet they live with constantly. We can connect over a cup of tea or a beer, and the difference of our experience when we separate and go our own ways, how we are treated differently, how white people get a pass and black people can get killed or arrested -- That's what white people have to change.

Last year I felt triggered almost every time I tuned into Facebook. The triggers were that there was something wrong with me because I am white. I felt constantly criticized and told I am wrong. Now, no one was calling me out personally. I was a timid lurker in these mystifying and painful interactions. The first awareness was Layla Saad's letter to Spiritual White women – and the ongoing online conversation that has not stopped. I was convicted of my sin, as my Baptist ancestors would say. My sin is the sin of racism. Mostly unconscious, endemic, unacknowledged, and unmitigated... Continue reading

Last week I taught Facebook how to make biscuits. I made biscuits on a Facebook live video! It was the most fun I've had in front of a video camera in my entire life! Watch the Video here! Manifesting Lessons from Biscuits This simple inspired action turned out to be so rich in rewards and lessons. Reading through the comments, I was gratified by how much pleasure people got from a real life, messy elbows cooking lesson! From me showing up real and raw and covered in flour. Viewers thanked me for teaching them a simple skill that took them... Continue reading

A reminder to all of us that the Creative Power of the Universe is not a neat, linear, clean process. Creation is Feminine. Complex. Chaotic. Spiraling. Creation is Wild. Feminine. Dark. Tangled. In this way all the elements of creation can fulfill their purpose: Cells. Blood. Bone. Mycelium. Creepy Crawlies. Creation is made from the elements of decay and death. The true nature of Creative Power has been misunderstood and demonized. Co-opted and cleansed of it mess and its mystery in an attempt to control Death. Death is not destruction but transformation. If you destroy death, you kill life. Alberto... Continue reading

christ is risen with each blade of grass sprouting from the mud we listen avidly for the first woodcocks and peepers spring floods my body like a swollen brook winter is almost over in Maine that’s when the Holy Thaws WHEN THE HOLY THAWS A woman's body, like the earth, has seasons; when the mountain stream flows, when the holy thaws, when I am most fragile and in need, it was then, it seemed, God came closest. God, like a medic on a field, is tending our souls. Our horns get locked with desires, but don't hold yourself too accountable;... Continue reading

The Aries Equinox - Sring in the Northern Hemisphere and Fall in the Southern Hemisphere - is an astrological power time. A lot of planets that were in Pisces last month have moved to Aries. This changes everything! The planets and other heavenly bodies that astrologers work with represent archetypes. They are symbols of the energy we carry within us. When we explore their relationships to one another in the sky, we reveal our personal mysteries so the we can use the energy to create. I work with the Divine Feminine. I specialize in the so-called minor planets that represent... Continue reading

Beautiful Woman, You have a big mission to be part of the great Awakening, healing, and re-creation of the world that is happening in this epic time! I see you.

You feel tired and frustrated and dried up by the demands of your life – always busy meeting the needs of others, while your needs, desires, and talents are put off till last. And too often there is nothing... Continue reading

As I emerge from the shadowy realms of deep winter, I want to update you on the changes since the Solar Eclipse portal of last August. In October of 2017, I sold the house and land where I have lived for 24 years, and where I have held ceremony in the sweat lodge for 15 years. It started on Christmas Day, 2016. I looked out the back window and a flock of about 20 turkeys walked in a circle all around the house! We don't get turkeys here that often. I've seen this many turkeys in the year twice in...

I used to hate Vision Boards. Vision boring. I dislike searching through magazines and cutting out pictures and gluing. In late 2016, I joined Vanessa Long's Goddess Voice class, and there was a session on Vision Boards. I decided to make one. I found most of my images on the internet, and among my own photographs. That helped. I made the vision board and throughout the year it got shuffled through stacks of paper. Occasionally I tacked it to the wall. It literally gathered dust as we renovated the house in prep to sell, and it surfaced again as a... Continue reading

Balance of Light and Dark Equinox is gift the Cosmos sends us so that two times a year, we can remember balance. Balance is not stasis or stagnation. Balance is movement! Balance marks the halfway point of a journey. There is as much behind me as before me. Dark night I have awakened from is as long as the day I am awakening to. That which I planted I can harvest. My desire, which creates a hole in my heart, is met in equal measure with abundant fulfillment. Equinox is a moment. A day and a night. A chime in... Continue reading
