Sacrifice is to Make Sacred in GoddessSpeak

In this season of Lammas: contemplating “making sacred”/sacrifice. The “making sacred”/sacrifice of Goddess is very different from the “sacrifice” demanded by patriarchal cosmology.

Lammas/Imbolc@ EarthGaia Feb 2017

In the Southern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing dark, post-Summer Solstice, and in the Northern Hemisphere it is the season of the waxing light, post-Winter Solstice.  At this place and time in Earth’s annual orbit – our everyday sacred journey – Earth makes the post-Solstice transition, crossing the midpoint (the “cross-quarter”) between […]

Eyes of Goddess

… the Eyes of Goddess … we walk between Her eyes in Beltaine ceremony, to be seen by Her. To be seen by Her is healing, wholing, restoring … as opposed to the patriarchal gaze that judges, evaluates, diminishes. In these recent times (this era) the act of seeing has commonly become an act of […]

A friend recently found this on YouTube: PaGaian Cosmology (Book Chat) by Cassandra Tarot, July 21 2016.   Cassandra says: “Less of a review, and more of an off-the-cuff, from-the-heart ramble, I talk a bit about the book PaGaian Cosmology and how it’s re-framed my view of the cosmos. I also chat a bit about […]

The story essentially enacted and told at these seasonal transitions is […]

Sacred Words of Spring Equinox

When we have been lost and lost others – when we have lost beloved ones, including ourselves … When we have wandered the barren fields of our psyches, minds and our lives … When we feel we have failed and our hearts are broken … When we know we have made terrible errors of judgement […]

Imbolc/Lammas Moment August 2016 C.E.

As Earth continues Her/our everyday sacred journey around Mother Sun, the Seasonal Moment of Imbolc/Lammas is next in the orbit: it depends on your Hemisphere as to which aspect of the Moment you experience. We – all beings – do not need to go anywhere for this everyday pilgrimage: we are already travelling, and maybe walking it. […]
