The Magical Story of What Happened through the Eclipse Portal

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 24 years

Christmas turkeysAt the Fairy Apple Tree Christmas 2016

 

As the ground thawed last spring, I realized it was time to change the energy.

I had bought the place with my ex-husband, who died in 2016.
I had completed raising my sons in that house, and they are both grown men, nearly 40!
I began my adult spiritual journey by the agency of that sacred land.
I loved that land as my body, and couldn't imagine not living there.
I struggled to keep the land, and maintain a very old farmhouse.
I began to feel the tug of something new – a new way of living in the world.

I felt how as an elder, a Crone Queen, I was using too much of my energy to hold and manage this land, and my personal history enmeshed in it.

I was too attached to that land, that home, and my dreams for the land.

It was time to let go. Time to change the energy.

In May and June we worked hard to get the house and land spiffed up to put on the market. I worked with the best realtor, Annie Higbee of Downhome Maine. Intuition told me that Annie's energy as well as her expertise would be the right support for the sacred letting go of this land.

In the summer Solstice sweat lodge, I got the crystal clear message that I am being repotted!

My mission and my personal growth and fulfillment of purpose depends on moving to a bigger pot. What that pot looks like is an unfolding story. Knowing that I had to leave the land in Hope made the letting go a bit easier, even possible. Yes, it began to be joyful!

I made a ceremony calling in the next caretaker of the sacred land. I made a ceremony opening myself to the call of my new land. Spirit and I were partners in this repotting project.

Remember the turkeys on Christmas Day?

The listing for the house went live around July 7th

Starting that week, I was visited by turkeys every day.

Deer turkeys cat arrow 2The grey and white cat Bougie spies on the turkeys. They know exactly where he is. 

 

Throughout July and August I had two big jobs that kept me close to home:

Ceremonial decommissioning all the sacred sites, dance arbors, and the Peace Chamber sites

And healing from Lyme infection.


I noticed that a flock of five adult turkeys would bring their chicks through the back yard every day.
Day by day I watched the young turkeys grow. They were two sizes, meaning that one clutch had hatched earlier by a few weeks.

One day they surprised me by all flying into the trees! They were roosting every night in the woods just beyond the backyard meadow. What a blessing!

I would wake at dawn to watch them fly down, and then observe at sunset when they gathered in the meadow to feed and fly up to the high roosts for the night.

Turkey medicine signifies gathering the harvest. I sensed that they were helping in the process of the sale of the house. I also felt they might be for the new owner as much as for me. The turkeys were calling them in.

Interesting that they day we signed the sales contract in September, the turkeys went away! They stopped roosting in the trees, and I did not see them on a feeding stroll through the meadow and garden.

Their work on the land was complete.

There was one more example of animal medicine power.

On the last day of negotiations post inspection period, I was taking down the sweat lodge for good. Annie called with some final information, and I was taking a deep breath, because this was it. SOLD!

I looked down at the sacred mound. A two foot long garter snake emerged from the rocks, and raised its head. It stayed there throughout the conversation. I took it to mean: Get on with this! Shed your skin. Shed this house and land. Time for rebirth!

Snake on mound 1Snake says time to shed. Rebirth!



And so with the help of the animals, I made the transition.

The animals said GO! They called in the new owners, a wonderful young family who is farming the land, and they are pretty excited about all the ceremony we did there for so many years.

The last week as we were moving and getting ready for the closing, it even felt that the land was kicking me off! The land was ready to welcome the new custodians. My work here in Hope is finished.

It is done.

Last sunset 2My Last Sunset on Hatchet Mountain

 


At first I was in “transplant shock” as a seedling will be when first repotted.

Through the dark of winter, I felt alone and homesick.

I have felt bereft and ungrounded walking on concrete every day.

I miss my sacred fires and the sweat lodge.

Burnlodgefire1Last sacred fire at Hope Peace Ceremonies: Burning the Lodge



The intense ride through the August Leo eclipse portal ushered in all the change I've just described. In the months of change and darkness – Autumn and Winter – I descended into a cave of fertilization and gestation. It takes time to integrate change. I was not idle in the cave, though I was not so visible.

I commune with the Dark Goddess, often as Lilith, almost daily. She accompanies me in the underworld initiatory journey that is Priestess Path.

Right after my move, I studied with my coach Vanessa Long to acquire powerful new tools so my clients can open the floodgates of transformation.

As the embers of the Imbolc fires die down, I feel my roots grow strong, and new leaves and shoots and buds forming. My repotting is taking hold.

As the Leo eclipse cycle completes with a partial solar eclipse in Aquarius, it is time to bring the messages of the Dark Goddess forward into the light.

It is time to offer the new tools, or as I prefer to call them, JEWELS, to women on their path of discovering Truth, power, and freedom.

It is time to show you what happens on the other side of the portal.

In Honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

NOTE: This article was originally published on MLK Day, January 19, 2015. I republish today with an update at the end. 

My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together.~Desmond Tutu

IN HONOR of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 
Today the United States celebrates the first national holiday of the year, the day that honors the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I want to share two memories associated with Dr. King, one heavy and one delightful.

Darkness falls...

Late one afternoon in 1968, I was a teenage girl daydreaming and listening to the Beatles on the radio. It was getting dark, almost suppertime on the farm in Tennessee where I grew up. The music stopped, and a news bulletin broke in. Dr. Martin Luther King had been assassinated in Memphis, just 90 miles away.  

The news filled me with shame, and dread. In the South I grew up in, bones of the Confederacy were not laid to rest. My parents were on the other side of the civil rights issue. Civil rights threatened them and brought up all their fears. I had not yet formed my own opinions, though I am sure turning 13 in 1968 influenced my liberalization, as I began to think for myself. It was many years later, after I moved to New York City, that I began to study Dr. King and Civil Rights, and I learned how much we’d lost that day in Memphis.



MLK crowd
His words ring more true to me with each passing year. 

The saving of our world from pending doom will come, not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Half a lifetime later...

On January 18, 2009, it was the day after Martin Luther King Day, and the day after Barak Obama’s first inauguration. Spirits were high in the nation’s capital, and all over the world. I was flying back to Maine from a meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. Sitting alone on a shuttle between terminals at Dulles International Airport in Washington, DC, I was joined by an entourage. A familiar and very happy elderly man sat across from me. His blazer bore an ecclesiastical emblem on the pocket. It was indeed Archbishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa. The shuttle filled with travelers, and the Archbishop’s assistant offered to take our pictures with him. I sat beside him and shared a few words, thanking him for his work.



DC and Desmond Tutu
You’ve seen him in videos, laughing and joyful as he speaks truth. That’s how he is. He was a keynote speaker at the Martin Luther King Day service at the National Cathedral in 2012. Someone asked if he was at the Inauguration. No! he said, laughing. I didn’t have a ticket! He watched on television.

It was a magnificent day for the world, he said. He could not say it enough, how happy he was, how important and joyful this day was for the world. And he was right, in that moment!

It was over 40 years since that darkest day for Peace and Justice when Dr. King was murdered. I got to witness what it meant to the man who’d presided over the dismantling of South African apartheid and the restoration and forgiveness he mediated in his country.

Our work is not done, and never will be. The work of orgasmic liberation, true complete self-ownership for all people, is all our ongoing work. Peace is our purpose. Peace is the very definition of  "creative maladjustment of the non-conforming minority."

UPDATE 2018

I read the words of Dr. King with new eyes today. Since I posted in 2015, the unthinkable has happened. The joy and hope that Archbishop Tutu felt on that fateful day in 2009, barely nine years later, has given way to deeper entrenchment and overt expression of white supremacy and racism in this country. 

I have to own my part in racist America. I am a white woman, born into privilege and safety by virtue of my skin color. I was bred into racism so deep that I can't see it in myself. I have undertaken the difficult education to face my own unconscious internalized racism.

Unless I do this work to remove my own racism, I remain part of the "conforming majority."

Justice for all people, indeed the fate of planet Earth, requires that I do this work.  I stand with, as a member of, the non-conforming minority. Together we shall become the majority!

 


Vision Boards Work for Me!

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 difficult-to-pack object as I was moving.
 
That's when I became a convert to vision boards. I'll tell you the story in pictures.
 
First is a picture of my whole 2017 vision board:
 
Vision board 2017
 
At the bottom you see a picture of my house with a maple tree in fall color (green circle). I inserted a SOLD sign from my realtor's Facebook page. Even though we hadn't started the process yet, I knew I was going to call Annie Higbee to be my realtor. No one else was allowed to touch my house!
 
Green circle
 
In October we signed the sale contract and prepared to get moved by the November 2nd closing date. The next picture is the one I took of the real sold sign in October 2017. Holy moly! My Unconscious Mind took my picture literally!
 
Sold house
 
Next, look at this detail circled in red on the vision board. And look at what I have in the house I am currently renting. How did I live without a claw foot bathtub for 25 years? I have one now!    
 
 
 
One more, that I just noticed as I was writing this post:
 
Circled in Yellow is a jeweled key with a goddess image on it. I chose this image because it reminds me of my spiritual path: the priceless, jeweled, precious journey of my deepening and growing relationship with the Divine Feminine. This fall, I joined ALisa Starkweather and 30 sisters on the Priestess Path.
 
PP
 
These pictures are at the bottom of the Vision Board, as if they are foundational parts that had to happen before the other things can come in.
 
This week I am reviewing the elements of this Vision Board, and checking: Do I really desire this? What makes my desire more clear, specific, and vivid?
 
 
PS. I had a LOT of FOCUSED ACTION on getting the house sold. I also had people in my life working on the same goal. They had my back big time: My partner Charlie and my realtor Annie, among others.
 
Vision Boards require action, both inner and outer!
 
I am a convert to vision boards now.
 
Are you?
 

Balance of Light and Dark

Equinox lake

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 the great clock of our solar system. 

We humans spend so much of our energy in drama, in the struggle of making the two ends of a thing meet. 

Equinox is a moment to drop those two ends and let them be. They are in balance. YOUR needs are met. However dark it seems now, equal light is also here. 

Feel the thrill and the peace that comes when you rest in the middle of the tension. That tension becomes pleasure. Energy you can tap into and use. 

Balance is dynamic and creative. Most of the time it is a potential. We see too much of one thing and not enough of something else. It can feel uncomfortably out of balance.

Life requires and creates this movement. That is when change happens. It is good.

Today, feel the balance of Light and Dark in your body. Know that whatever is happening in the world, in your life, balance is the order. 

Today, you get to feel it. Let it be your teacher and your comfort. 

Blessed Equinox!


With all my LOVE,

Lilith Triple Goddess Part 3

Please read Lilith Triple Goddess part 1 and part 2,  If you have read them, please do read again. I guarantee you will find something new. 


Lilith stands for soul-level integrity, the kind of authenticity that will have you sacrifice rather than compromise. This is powerful. And it has a sharp double edge.

Lilith in the Garden of Eden was Adam's first wife, the ORIGINAL WOMAN. She was created by Divine at the same time as Adam.

She knew who she was. She knew she was worthy. She knew she was EQUAL. She knew she was divine.

When she was ordered to give up her equality and submit to man and God, she left.

Why was leaving her answer? Yes, it speaks to us of soul-level integrity. She would not compromise her truth. We women need that modeled for us. We need to own Lilith's integrity for ourselves.

Yet, She gave up more than her birthright in the Garden. When she left she gave up the option to tell her own story. History is written by the victors.

Lilith became a demon not a goddess. She was supplanted by Eve, a woman that was made from man, with the design that she would be submissive to man, as Lilith would never be.

Through Eve, woman's natural power was usurped and turn to propagating and defending patriarchy. Eve's children survived. (See Part 2.) She taught them that men held the power and women were subject to men. Women derive power through their relationship to men. She taught them that all that Lilith stands for is evil.

We begin to understand how women unconsciously participate in their own suppression, and upholding the patriarchy. It is a self-perpetuating system in that way. (How could 54% of voting white women have voted for Trump? That's how.)

Wait, let's back up a minute.

The story that Lilith left the Garden – is that HER story or patriarchy's story?

In the Center of the Garden stood a Tree whose fruit Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat. This was the called the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil.

When Eve went to the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, who did she meet there?

The Old Testament Bible says she met a serpent, which I learned was Satan, aka The Devil. Many older stories, as well as artists throughout time, depict the serpent who told Eve to eat the fruit as LILITH.

*** What if Lilith never left? ***

What if the tree at the Center of the Garden belonged to her – to the Goddess?

The sacred tree is ancient and universal sign of the Goddess, as is the Serpent. The oldest Sumerian stories of Lilith say she lived in the Goddess Inanna's Sacred Tree.

What if Lilith spoke with the voice of the Goddess, saying to Eve, “There is another way. Remember who you are. Remember who I am.”

This is the story Lilith Crone whispers to us. We carry this story in our cells. It is a truth that speaks to us through all that is feminine in Nature, in our bodies, through our orgasm.

Lilith has a different story to tell than the one passed down by the patriarchy.

It is up to us to remember and tell it.

I'll be back soon to share a video speaking of some of the challenges we overcome as daughters of Eve remembering Lilith.

Are you ready to embody Lilith in your own life? Is she calling you?

Lilith: Triple Goddess Part 2

In Part one of  Lilith: Triple Goddess, I introduced the three faces of Lilith as a Triple Goddess.

When one aspect of the Triple Goddess is active, the other two are also present. At first I did not think that Lilith shows up as Maiden/Mother/Crone. My listening throughout the day reveals that she is Maiden/Mother/Crone as the Dark Goddess.

***Lilith Maiden ***

Lilith is the Wild Feminine. Untamed and untamable. In the ancient Sumerian texts, Lilith was the original femme fatale. In the Hebrew story, she was “first wife, who refused to lie underneath Adam during sex. She insisted that she belonged on top, and would not submit to the man or God.

In an apparent fit of rashness, she abandoned Eden rather than submit to being controlled by man.

This feels like the shadow of the Maiden, who was never a “maiden.” Lilith has always stood for limitless sexual appetite, a quality demonized as succubus: Her erotic appetite literally sucks the life out of a man.

Men learned to fear the sexual power and desire of women. Women internalized this fear, and so began millennia of slut-shaming which forced women to deny their own erotic nature, and participate in their own repression.

Lilith the Wild Feminine disappeared into the realm of shadow – that which women and men alike **do not want to know about ourselves** – and which keeps bubbling to the surface in witch burnings, rape, sexual abuse, sex trafficking and slavery, and legal restrictions to women's control of their own bodies and health.

*** Lilith Mother ***

Long before there was Adam or even Inanna, Lilith was an ancient agricultural and fertility goddess in Sumeria. She was the protector of pregnant women, mothers, and babies.

When She claimed her Goddess-hood, and abdicated her place as Adam's consort in Eden, she was condemned to kill 100 of her children every day. Some stories put the number at 1000. She became the killer of infants, not their protector.

Scholars say this myth explains high infant mortality in ancient society. I don't think so.

My intuition says this is justification of genocide of the Goddess worshipping cultures. Lilith becomes complicit in the murder of her descendants.

This is a shadow that torments us to this day. The group in power decides who is worthy to reproduce and raise children.

Women considered “fallen” or of “loose morals” have their children taken from them to be raised or enslaved by the dominant culture.

Families and communities of people of color are disrupted by violence in every possible form – poverty, prison, lack of opportunity, legalized murder and brutality.

This is the aim of war: total destruction of the people and their future.

When the patriarchy made Lilith into the Demon Mother, devouring her children, she became the scapegoat, the justification for genocide. Women have been socialized to keep this system in power.

This is blasphemy. BLASPHEMY!

This is the trance that held women in its spell for eons.

I've struggled to understand how this happened. When Lilith abandoned Eden, was she abandoning the Earth to the domination of Patriarchy? Why did things get so out of balance?

I get it now.

***Lilith Crone*

She comes to awaken us from our trance. It is a hard awakening. 
She's always been here, whispering through our intuition, quickening our wombs with her wisdom, showing herself in signs and oracles of nature, speaking through divination.

It is hard to hear when you are entranced by the spell of your own powerlessness.

Those who did hear and awaken and speak up were destroyed: killed, shamed, lobotomized.

It is dangerous when Lilith Crone calls you to awaken.

The volume of Lilith's rage, fury, lust, and grief processing through us is more than we can handle without support in remembering.

*** Waking up is an act of profound courage! ***

That is why my mission is to support women through their waking up process.

My work with Womb Wisdom and Sexual Healing gives women the strength to channel their own Lilith energy!

We living women (and men) are her hands, feet, heart, and mind.

The most important thing to remember about the Goddess is she works through us.

When enough of us remember how to hear her voice, and boldly on our vision, we'll be unstoppable. She will be unstoppable.

Lilith Crone is the Goddess who declares through us:

I am NOT Demon, I am Divine.

Yet the wrathfulness of restoring balance could scare us to death.

It will not scare us back to sleep!

Go on to Lilith Part 3. 


Lilith: Triple Goddess Part 1

The solar eclipse of August 21 activated Lilith energy in two powerful ways: The Demonized Goddess and the original Feminine energy of manifestation.

After the Eclipse I meditated deeply on Lilith and listened to what she had to teach me. 

Lilith is a triple goddess. So many aspects of the Divine Feminine are triple goddesses. Something about Three is a magic number of dynamic creative power within wholeness that shows up in many religious systems.

When I do Divine Feminine Astrology Readings (DFAR), I look up three different Lilith points on your chart.

Lilith, the asteroid. This is a physical body in our solar system, part of the asteroid belt. Many of the goddesses in astrology are named asteroids, considered "minor planets." Like hell they are!

Asteroid Lilith is personal. She represents the disowned and repressed powers of the feminine expressed through sexuality, anger, conflict, voice, even money. Any place where women have been historically and currently denied their power by society. Her location in your chart tells how the feminine wound shows up in your own life, and the resources you have for healing.

Black Moon Lilith is a mathematical point related to the moon's orbit around the earth. It is not a physical body. It is an energetic point of power and symbolism. M. Kelley Hunter calls Black Moon Lilith "an energy vortex, an ancient pathway into incarnation and sword of truth." I understand her to be the original Feminine (mythically the first woman created by God, Adam's first wife). I connect Black Moon Lilith with the portal, and as the portal, I connect her with the Womb: the portal from the Cosmos to physical presence on Earth.

Oh she is a mystery teacher, Black Moon Lilith!

Black Moon Lilith is conjunct Saturn now, and connected to the Solar Eclipse by a trine. You don't have to know astrology to listen deeply to what this feminine energy working with -- or against??? -- the masculine of Saturn says to you. Meditate on it. So much more to say and learn about her!

Algol, the Lilith Star (aka the Eye of Medusa).

Algol is a star, a real physical body and very far away, outside our solar system. The ancients of many cultures associated her with the evil of the Demon Goddess. I see her as the Goddess who is Demonized by the Patriarchy.

She has been cast out and reviled, blamed as a cause of suffering and evil. She has become an object of fear and dread.

***She is that which we fear and dread inside ourselves***

Algol is the Lilith that we reclaim within. As we go through this initiation process of reclaiming the fierce Divine Feminine, SHE emerges from behind her terrifying mask.

Algol Lilith Star is terrible energy. She restores balance to the world. When things have gone so far out of balance, then restoration of balance may feel like disaster.

Algol is square the eclipse point. Tension and action are required.

We have to own and use her energy well. This is big Magic.

Dark Goddess on Fire.

Well.

When working with Lilith there are no sparkles or rainbows in sight.

We have our work cut out for us.

Please share what you know about Lilith. Has she visited you? Does this post give insight into your experience?

September 11 Memorial Medicine Wheel

 

In Memorium for all we lost on September 11, 2001 ~  

and grief for what my country has become in its aftermath. 

I took these photos with my Kodak Instamatic camera the day after I moved to New York. The first place I went was the top of the World Trade Center, an icon that marks big moments in my personal life and in my imagination to this day. 

East_wtc_77

THE EAST

The World Trade Center, the double hub of my life wheel. It was the first place I went when I ran away to the City in 1977. Wearing Earth shoes and carrying an instamatic camera, I took the elevators to the observation deck, and took a photo survey of my new home, including the building two blocks away where I would soon be living and nursing my two little boys. 

 

South_wtc_77
THE SOUTH

My babies learned to walk in the plaza, played in the fountain. The endless construction and deconstruction inside them fed my children for years, as my husband, the union carpenter local 608, built office after office for the junk bond fueled Reaganomicans.

 

West_wtc_77
THE WEST

In dreams, I'd imagine the Towers as a great gleaming double hanging garden, the glass blown out, the people gone, and plants, vines, flowers, birds, animals of all kinds creating a new micro-ecology every ten floors or so. I figured if we humans moved out, it would take nature about 10 years to walk off with the Twin Towers.

 

North_wtc_77 THE NORTH

That's not how the WTC story ends, we know. I offer prayers to the four directions and the heart -- for those who died that day, for all our memories, for those who continually suffer the war, for those who can't make a decision, and for the rest of us who stand and pray sing dance cry for a vision.

 

Center_wtc_77 THE CENTER
