Full Harvest Moon & The Ancient Feminine

  Happy Harvest Moon dear friends  The ancient archetype of * Harvest * Tide * is so sweet and wonder-full, no?! For better understanding of what this means (for both personal or collective S O U L  W O R K,) spend some reflection time with the Lunar Lammas-Tide post on the Wild Women Wisdom website,…

Women’s Embodiment: Culture & Soul. At Summer Solstice~

Two weeks or so back, on the waxing moon of this cycle at the end of my work week, I was ovulating and in need for introspection.  To be precise, la luna was moving into her 1st quarter phase, amplifying the Virgin Archetype medicine that I and others in our co-op’s Women’s Mysteries group imprinted…

Divine Love & Healing Shame on Lunar Beltane

Beltane, if celebrated on the lunar-led earth path of the medicine wheel, is tonight. Ancestors used to celebrate Beltane as the traditional start of summer. Think fire, passion!!  May Day, when maidens danced the Maypoles and the lusty earth was potent with the growing BLOSSOMS that at spring were birthed!  When certainly some of those…

Wildness on the Full Moon Tide

The last thing there is with ease is craziness in this world. Here in the house of my grandparents where only my mom and dad now live it is dark, far darker than any other place I’ve ever been.   That includes both sets of coastal mountain regions where I’ve been lucky enough to stay,…

Women’s Mysteries: Ovulation and The Active Imagination

Dualistic, or Self Verses Other, Thinking We got here to this beautiful earth handed down human from human, parent to parent, earth to foot to heart to head, and back again.

Systemic Violence and the Killing of Michael Brown by Xochitl Alvizo

  Photo by Chris Pinkham Oppression is systemic. Injustice is systemic. It pervades the whole – it seeps into everyday actions and becomes habits and patterns that function as default. As a result, the actions that fall within these patterns hardly need justifying. If anything, the questioning of them is what is put on the…

A Love Letter from Your Shadow.

This is such a great meditation for the wholeness of Lunar Lammas, or First Harvest Moon. Full moon reflects the animus or logos light of the sun on the anima or receptive darkness of the soul.  We come face to face with our Sacred Within, but often in mask or persona form.  Use this light…

Magic Happens

“Just as anyone who listens to the muse will hear, you can write out of your own intention or out of inspiration. There is such a thing. It comes up and talks. And those who have heard deeply the rhythms and hymns of the gods, can recite those hymns in such a way that the…
