Reconnect With Your Pagan Roots & the Mother Goddess

Reconnect with your pagan roots and the Mother Goddess through my book, The Spiritual Feminist (Moon Books, John Hunt Publishing).

An excerpt:

Her Story:

Hecate is one of the triple goddesses, often depicted in art as a single body with three heads. She is the goddess of witchcraft; the moon; the spirit realm; nature and night visions; considered protectress of the Witches. She also protects women in childbirth, is the guardian of the spirit world, and “Queen of the Crossroads”– a place of dark magic, spiritual wisdom, and terrible power.

The moon’s shadow fell as a pattern on the dirt road beneath the trees. The young woman’s cloak hid her face as she leaned on her knees to dig a small hole, depositing a knotted scarf holding herbs and stones, a tiny carved image, and her menstrual blood. Her lips moved silently as she invoked the presence of Hecate.

As the young woman covered her sacred bundle with earth and rose from her knees, the sound of a hound baying at the moon echoed in the distance. The breeze picked up, moving the tree limbs above, shifting the shadows on the road into eerie patterns. A chill ran up the woman’s spine, and she gathered her cloak more tightly about her shoulders, shivering with the knowledge that the great goddess Hecate was moving through the crossroads.

Embracing the Goddess:
Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself. So often women are under the impression that someone else is responsible for their protection, but this isn’t true. We’re responsible for protecting ourselves, and sometimes this can mean making difficult decisions.

Hecate’s correspondences:

Herbs: garlic, lavender, honey
Animal: dog
Color: purple
Planet: Jupiter
Day: Thursday
Element: Earth
Feminine Face: Crone
Symbols: a torch; a dagger; the crossroads;
the moon; the serpent; fire

Invoke this goddess in the sacred darkness of night, at a crossroads, which is her favored realm, in the light of a fire. The presence of a dog is desirable, and this creature will not only be pleasing to Hecate, but may very well announce her beautiful and terrible presence before you are aware of it.

Love & the Cups ~ from "The Ultimate Tarot Guide for Your Personal Tarot Journey"

[An Excerpt]…from “The Ultimate Tarot Guide for Your Personal Tarot Journey”:
Ace/Cups ~ With the ace of cups you hold in your hand all of the visions, dreams, and love you will experience in this lifetime… every relationship that touches your existence, every dream-scape that you travel in your sleep, every vision you experience through Spirit spills from the ace of cups. You swim within this realm enveloped by the magic of it all. The real dilemma of this ace comes in managing all of the images, emotions, and depth that you experience with feeling, really FEELING, life.
With the ace of cups, you will learn the importance of filters and boundaries.
Beware. There is the danger of being entangled in fantasy, deluged with paranoia and narcissism, caught in the web of self-deceit.
Be prepared to sort out reality from delusion.
My Personal Connection:
The Ace of Cups has been my biggest challenge in life (me, the Libra, forever connecting in partnerships), forever pursuing love and a fairy tale ending, not anticipating what each encounter would bring to me, what I would learn from it, what I would suffer for it, what I would take away from it. The Libra in me has not been content unless I was one of a pair, from the time I was 15 years old. There has only been three years in my 20s and going on three years in my 60s that I have been a single entity. And I realize now, looking back in reflection, that these single years have been the largest periods of growth and development for me.
This beautiful cup full of promises and love, commitment and passion, had to throw the water it contains in my face to wake me up, in order for me to see and recognize destructive patterns in my life, in order for me to break these patterns. Does this mean that the belief in fairy tale endings has been washed away? The idea of love and passion that never dies? The idea of soul mates and magical connections? No, of course not, but it’s the realization that those things must be chosen carefully, that you can’t take such big steps at face value and wish for the best outcome. It’s also made me realize that if those things are not for me, or not for me at particular periods of life, that’s okay too.
It’s taken a lifetime, but I’m finally at peace with the Ace of Cups.
