The Wild Woman Archetype – Wild and Untamed


iSpeech

Who is the Wild Woman and how we can embody her archetypal wisdom, even when we are past or not reached the physical aspect of her phase.

The Wild Woman is instinctual.  She is primal, passionate, sassy, magical, deeply connected to earth and intolerant to bullshit.

The Wild Woman is untamed and an awakening soul who will not rest until she uncovers the truth of who she is.  She is a healer and a medicine woman.

She senses and intuits and a spectrum of feels without censoring herself.

Women have been censored, subdued, suppressed and ultimately tamed for a millennium. 

The Wild Woman is ‘wild’ because she needs to be.  She runs headfirst into the heart of every experience, and she needs her wildness to negotiate the world she lives in.

The Wild Woman is desperate to be seen and heard… she has her own unique gifts she longs to share with you.

She is asking us to stand still, reflect, accept, and alchemise our experiences, so we can begin to heal.

How do we embody the Spirit of the Wild Woman?

The Wild Woman Archetype or spirit is the energy that women embody during the pre-menstruation part of the cycle, when your body is preparing to shed the lining of the uterus.  This is when our oestrogen dips and progesterone begins’ to rise. We feel like slowing right down. We have less energy, and you may even feel reclusive, more sensitive and critical in the days before your period.

The Wild Woman symbolises wholeness and is associated with the autumn phase of our menstrual cycle, the autumn of the year and the waning crescent moon.

The Wild Woman spirit is wild, unpredictable, emotional and powerful and as we move into our inner Autumn, it’s natural to turn within, to take stock…

Igniting Your Wild Autumn Superpower: to detect bullshit & discard what no longer serves

For those not experiencing a menstrual cycle, you can tune into the Wild Woman energy during the waning moon when the world is starting to slow down and get darker.  You can tap into her wild spirit by taking time to journal and reflect on what is not working.  This is also a good time to prepare for the next phase as we start to make space for more of what we want.

Most of us love autumn as a season, the leaves start to turn and flutter to the ground and the world turns golden.  We find ourselves wrapping up a bit more warmly and finding more time to be cosey at home.

Autumn is also a time for letting go of what no longer serves us. A time to practice getting out of the way and allowing spirit to guide us.

So why not embrace your inner wild woman during your inner autumn and let her be your guide to slowing down, snuggling up and let her show you what inner leaves need to fall away.

This is the perfect time to shine a light on what has not been working during our spring and summer phases (which can be uncomfortable to process) and course correct.

So how do we coax out our Inner Wild Woman and nurture her emergence?

The Wild Woman stands firmly, rooted in her own power, reclaiming her freedom and stripping away what no longer serves. 

We can bring our inner Wild Woman to life by...

  • Feeling all your feels, and valuing them—because each one has a lesson to teach us
  • Spend time in contemplation
  • Cut down on Stimulation and Unplug (less screen time, more stillness)
  • Explore your shadow, and bring them to the light
  • Nurture and nourish your body
  • Spending time in the wilds of nature
  • Strengthen your throat chakra

The idea is to nurture the emergence of your inner Wild Woman at the pre-menstrual stage and support the emergence of this wild archetype or during the waning Moon phases, honour and nurture your own needs.  The practice is about self-nurturing and creating the space for the wild woman to emerge and allow her healthy aspects to develop with the support of your body and emotions.   

Many women dread the pre-menstrual part of their cycle as it can be physically painful, emotional, and often amplifies our shadow aspects.

The Wild Woman in you will emerge exactly how you need her to, because she is medicine for our soul and will shine a light on what no longer serves, so we can strip it away.

The Autumn phase of our menstrual cycle is about self-reflection and letting go of what we don’t need instead of putting out energy into the world, it is a time to explore our shadow, which parts that we hide and that need our attention

By heeding the call of the Wild Woman Archetype at this stage of our menstrual cycle and not resisting her need to slow down and start going inwards, we may be able to circumvent the dark and destructive behaviours that are deemed as irrational, by allowing her to be seen and heard. 

It is when we battle against our inner Wild Woman that we cause ourselves pain. 

She wants us to feel our pain and address the root cause, because this is the only way we can heal ourselves.

Maybe it is time to stop resisting her and listen.  She is a powerful force and has much to teach us.

The Feminine archetypes are portals to accessing our inner power, their imagery awakens within us energies and inspiration, that give us insight into our strengths and our shadow.

They are medicine for our human experience that transcends the limits of time and space.

The idea is to use archetypal wisdom as tool for stepping into the energy of the empowered feminine at any time! When you are in alignment with your feminine power this is when we gain access the most sacred experience of all... being a woman and embodying our full potential.

The invitation is to get to know yourself, make friends with yourself, and most importantly learn to trust yourself! 

When we begin to align ourselves more closely with what we are called to do and be, working with our shifting cyclical energies is our superpower.

We all have our own inner goddess and working with a specific Goddess, gives our inner divine feminine extra va va voom. Take some time to explore the nurturing wisdom of the Wild Woman Goddesses below and see who comes forward to light your path ahead.

Wild Woman Goddess you can access for accessing your inner wild:

  • Artemis
  • Diana
  • Freya
  • Kali
  • Pele
  • Sekhmet
  • Oya

For me the wild woman spirit has depth, the more we nurture her wild presence, the deeper she will take you.

The Wild Woman, truly is where we start to unpick or unlearn behaviours that no longer serve our purpose, giving space for us to connect with our true essence, including connecting into our sacred sexuality.  The wild woman helps us to alchemise our rage and channel it in a productive way.  She teaches us to say no and honour our needs.

I'd love to hear who resonates with you.. leave your comments below.

Till next week, when I share with you the magic of the Crone Spirit.

May your inner goddess continue to rise within you and light your way ahead!


Fionn and Belinda work with the Goddess in all her forms as part of their own transformational work and feel called to offer Workshops and Cacao Ceremonies to support others with these powerful teaching tools, enabling us to create a more fulfilling and magical life.

The Goddess is rising within each of us.... may she light your path ahead.

Blessed Be.

The Mother Archetype – Sacred Caretaker


iSpeech.org

Who is the Mother and how can you embody her archetypal wisdom, even when you are past the physical aspect of her phase....?

The mother simply glows.  She is sensual, abundant, and bursting with fertility. 

She is deeply connected to the earth, and all of life.

She represents creativity, birth and the cycle of growth.  When we allow the Mother Goddess to emerge, we feel inspired to spend time nurturing our body, mind, and spirit as a priority.  When we take care of ourselves, this is a micro-expression of caring for Mother Earth.  It is only when we nurture ourselves that we can truly begin to make positive and far-reaching changes.

When we tap into her cosmic personality, we see that her strength lies in her nurturing presence and not control.  She encompasses inner strength, wisdom, artfulness, and sacred caretaking.  She allows what she has created to bloom in its own divine time.  This is what creation is really about; co-creating something with the divine, that is one day able to sustain itself without our presence.

How do we embody the Mother Archetype?

The Mother archetype is the energy that women embody during the ovulatory Phase of the menstrual cycle - this is where we find a glowier version of ourselves and we feel like Superwoman and can handle multiple aspects of life at one time. 

The Mother symbolises abundance and is associated with the summer phase of our menstrual cycle, the Summertime of the year and the Full Moon 

This is when we say YES to just about everything!  We have heaps of energy, we feel like socialising and multitasking. 

As we move into our inner Summer phase, we are ready to shine shine shine!  A time when you are looking and feeling your best, so why no flaunt it!

Your shiny Summer Superpower: to enjoy the ride and look your best while doing it!

The idea is to use archetypal wisdom as tool for stepping into the energy of the empowered feminine at any time! When you are in alignment with your feminine power this is when we gain access the most sacred experience of a

The Mother stands firmly, rooted in her own power to sustain what she has created allowing it bloom in its own right.  We can bring our inner Mother to life by...

  • Making more time for ourselves and our desires
  • Spending more time in nature and replenish our energies
  • Exploring our creativity
  • Deciding what we need to prioritise in our life, and simplify things
  • Clear out any distractions, so we create space for more of what we really want
  • Chart your menstrual cycle (so you can feel more in tune with Mother Earth)
  • Weave more ritual practice into our life by celebrating the new and full moon, the sabbaths.
  • Involve yourself in community activities.

The idea is to nurture the emergence of your inner Mother at the ovulation stage and allow her healthy aspects to develop with the support of your body and emotions.   When we harness and maximise the mothers’ positive aspects, the easier it becomes to embody her archetypal energy during this part of our cycle and the simpler it becomes to propel ourselves forward in life.

At another stage in our cycle, this same outward high vibing, nurturing energy would feel like a huge effort, because your whole being (including the natural cycles of nature) will be urging you to slow down.

The Feminine archetypes are portals to accessing our inner power, their imagery awakens within us energies and inspiration, that give us insight into our strengths and weaknesses. They are medicine for our human experience that transcends the limits of time and space.

Mother Goddesses you can access for nurturing wisdom:

  • Gaia
  • Lakshmi
  • Demeter
  • Parvati
  • Hera
  • Yemaya
  • Isis
  • Mother Mary

The Mother is considered by many Wiccans to be the most powerful of the Triple Goddess.

For me the mother goddess is possibly the most dynamic of all the archetypes - she is the cornerstone to the past, present and the future.  The healing we do in the present not only releases us from any baggage our lineage carries, but our future generations as well.

The Maiden Archetype – Embracing Individuality


iSpeech

Who is the Maiden and how can you embody her archetypal wisdom, even when you are past the physical aspect of her phase....?

The Maiden represents new beginnings.  She is young at heart, full of optimism and energy.  She is self-reliant and embodies independence, strength and confidence. She teaches us to stand up for ourselves and pursue what we believe in.

There is a sense of playfulness and curiosity about her as she explores her world.

The Maiden is that precious part within each one of us that is our innocence, purity, and raw energy.        

How do we embody the Maiden?

The Maiden archetype is the energy that women embody during the pre-ovulation phase of the menstrual cycle - this is when we have an extra spring in our step. 

The Maiden symbolises rebirth and is associated with the spring phase of our menstrual cycle, the springtime of the year and the crescent-to-waxing phase of the Moon. 

As we move into our personal spring phase, we are ready slowly re-enter the world to start planning and organizing the month ahead. It’s during this phase we start to feel more energetic, motivated, full of optimism and ideas as our oestrogen starts to rise.  When embodied, this archetype appears to easily juggle a whole stack of interesting projects and activities.

We can imagine the fresh, rising energy of an emerging young woman, full of enthusiasm and authenticity…. Take a moment to imagine this vibrant energy and breath it in, allowing it to stir your senses.

Your Spring Superpower: to bedazzle everyone with your magnetic appeal!

Now is the perfect time to get curious and to think big: what can you change in your life for the better and plan how you can make it happen.

So how do we coax out our Inner Maiden and nurture her emergence?

The Maiden stands firmly, rooted in her own power and will bedazzle everyone with her magnetic appeal, attracting opportunities and people with ease. We can bring our inner maiden to life by...

  • Being assertive (asking for what you want)
  • Making plans and being social
  • Making conscious choices – surrounding ourselves with inspiring messages, people & vibrations
  • Taking time to discover our unique gifts
  • Celebrating the success of others
  • Dressing up! Adorning and anointing ourselves (Dressing in ways that make you like your truest and most beautiful self)
  • Being flexible and adaptable.
  • Taking time to unwind.
  • Strengthening your Solar Plexus, the seat of your personal power and self esteem through mediation.

The idea is to nurture the emergence of your inner Maiden at the pre-ovulation stage and allow her healthy aspects to develop with the support of your body and emotions.   When we harnes and maximise the maidens’ positive aspects, the easier it becomes to embody her archetypal energy during this part of our cycle and the simpler it becomes to propel ourself forward in life.

At another stage in our cycle, this same vibrant, creative, assertive energy would feel like an huge effort, because your whole being (including the natural cycles of nature) will be urging you to slow down.

The Feminine archetypes are portals to accessing our inner power, their imagery awakens within us energies and inspiration, that give us insight into our strengths and weaknesses. Archetypes are medicine for our human experience that transcends the limits of time and space.

The invitation is to get to know yourself, make friends with yourself, and most importantly learn to trust yourself! 

Archetypes are timeless and it doesn’t matter how old you are you can embody the maiden at any stage of your life! 

The idea is to use archetypal wisdom as tool for stepping into the energy of the empowered feminine at any time! When you are in alignment with your feminine power this is when we gain access the most sacred experience of all... being a woman and embodying our full potential.

We all have our own inner goddess and working with a specific Goddess, gives our inner divine feminine extra va va voom. Take some time to explore the energy of the Maiden Goddesses below and see who comes forward to light your path ahead.

The Wolf Speaks – Deep Diving with The Little Mermaid


iSpeech

One of the things I love, is stories (and books of course, I seem to collect them to read later!)

Stories are powerful tools, where we can learn life lessons, morals, and values.

Every great story since the beginning of time includes archetypes and we can identify with these archetypes on a collective level.  It’s through the archetypes in stories that we can begin to sculpt an understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

I recently bought Beneath the Moon: Fairy Tales, Myths, and Divine Stories from Around the world, which has been written and beautifully illustrated by Yoshi Yoshitani. 

Out of the stories I have read so far, the Little Mermaid, a Danish Fairy Tale originally written by Hans Christian Anderson and published in 1837, caught my attention.

We all know the Disney version of this story; Ariel is a mermaid who dreams of living on land.  She rescues a prince from drowning and falls madly in love with him.  She takes a gamble, and strikes a bargain, with Ursula, the evil sea witch.  Fully aware of the risks, she trades in her beautiful voice for legs, so she can be part of the human world and win the love of the prince she rescued.  In the Disney story, love wins the day and they both live happily ever after.

The original story has no happy ending, and your heart breaks for the mermaid who agreed to pay the price the wicked witch of the sea demands, for love, unrequited.

The Little Mermaid is unable to win the love of the prince, watches him marry another and the Little Mermaid dies and is turned to sea foam.  Apparently, Hans Christian Anderson revised the ending to a more hopeful conclusion, where the Little Mermaid becomes a daughter of air and earns a soul, something she wanted all along.

I was a little sad at the ending and I began to think about what the moral of the story was, what are the lessons and what was the story reflecting back at me.

The timing of reading this story, was rather curious.  The book arrived on International Women’s Day, which was the day after our first Goddess Archetype Workshop and before our deep dive into the maiden archetype.

I felt like there was not only some personal introspection required, but a collective message here to investigate.

Disney Movies (of the past) have adjusted the true value of stories, by appealing to our sense of romance, adventure, and the fight against good and evil.  In the retelling of these stories, the truth and depth has been compromised.  The morals, values and lessons have been re-written to disempower the feminine (and the masculine).  The Little Mermaid was determined to ‘change’ herself and give up everything for the love of a man she hardly knew, even knowing the risks.

This retelling has entrapped women into believing that we need a hero to save us and to be dependent on the love of another.  On the flipside the powerless female character is what the masculine is taught to desire.

The true meaning of the Little Mermaid has been covered up and denies us the moral of the story and encourages women to change ourselves to suit the mainstream narrative and to give in and lose our voice.  In the movie, girls are encouraged to change themselves, even ‘silence’ themselves in the name of love.

Women are not damsels in distress. We are not powerless, and we do not need saving.  We can save ourselves, by appreciating and loving ourselves first. 

Women have given up a lot of their innate magic to suit the patriarchal narrative.  To fit a script that tells us we are not good enough, that we need to look a certain way and more specifically we need to take on attributes of the masculine to make it in this world.  

Women have had their voices silenced , their unique feminine magic overidden and changed themselves to fit into the patriachal paradigm.

We step into our wholeness by following our hearts and what we truly want and rejecting the perverted version of what society has told us we want…

We often allow ourselves to get into situations where we lose our voices and our authenticity.

For me the moral of the story is when we give up so much of ourselves, in order to fit in, we curtail our freedom and give up our authenticity and override our innate feminine magic.

We need to think hard about how much of our personal and collective value we have given away, including our voices to fit in?

Where have we give up our magical depths and our feminine ebb and flow… for something that has taken our true magic from us?

I went on to read many different opinions and theories on the original story, some offered hope from a more spiritual perspective, others felt it articulated the harsh consequences stemming from impulsive actions of the mermaid.  Some even argued that in the end, her good deeds gave her what she wanted, eternal life.

Another thought was that the more bittersweet the ending, the more realistic it is.  We cannot make people love us and we need to learn to live with that fact.  The best we can do is act gracefully towards them.

My belief is, that stories reflect back to us what we need to know or consider, and my interpretation will be different to anyone else’s, based on my own personal narrative.

In the Tarot of the Divine by Yoshi Yoshitani, the little Mermaid represents the Fool, who is carefree and excited about life regardless of the warnings.  You see the mermaid depicted in the card, sitting on a rock looking up a castle on a high mountain top - a castle in the sky. 

For me the moral of the story is a warning.  A warning to not to give up parts of ourselves for the sake of another (or the mainstream patriarchal narrative).  To slow down and think before we rush in and to not create dreams, hopes, or plans that are impossible or unrealistic. 

The Little Mermaid represents the Maiden Archetype.  This Archetype displays a youthful effervescence and determination.  She has a sense of curiosity, which she uses to explore the world around her.  She is creative and has an instinctive approach to the world; however, lacks experience.  The world is your oyster when you are a maiden.

The shadow aspect of the maiden is self-centred.  All her energy is expended on achieving her own personal needs and goals.  She struggles to realize her full potential and she tends to be fearful and co-dependent.  She does not consider the consequences and trusts it will all work out. 

If I reflect on my own personal story.  I identify with the shadow aspect of the Maiden.  Having grown up in a restrictive religion (you can read about my story here) then desperately trying to escape, I started to look for love in the wrong places, looking for a hero to save me.  I became co-dependant, lacked boundaries and sought validation in all the wrong places.  Determined to live my life on my own terms, I ignored all the warning signs, even my intuitive ones. 

Where have you given up your voice to keep the peace and fit in?  Where have you knowingly given up your deepest feminine attributes to fit into patriarchal society?

I’m sure there are many other threads to unpick in this very profound fairy tale…

What personal connection do you have to the story? What part resonates with you the most?

I’d love to hear your thoughts…

Who is the Triple Goddess and Why Work with Her?


Powered by iSpeech

Awakening the Goddess within, is every woman’s birth right.  It’s a journey of love, that will lead you to your heart and your deepest authenticity.

We are cyclical beings, with countless sacred gifts and learning how to honour and harness these gifts and our deepest wisdom can assist us in stepping into our truth and power unapologetically.  When we strip away the layers of fear, past wounds and the stories of who we ‘think’ we are or trying to be, we become the thriving Goddesses we are meant to be.

Who is the Triple Goddess...?

The Triple Goddess captures the cyclical nature of our life and symbolises this divine dance throughout the universe.

Each phase of the moon correlates to the physical phases of a woman's life.  Traditionally that is the Maiden, the mother and the Crone… and by taking the time to connect with the Triple Goddess, the phases of the moon and the seasons we can begin to live our lives and work our authentic magic in the cyclic rhythm of life, death and rebirth and know that change is always occurring.

For me the Triple Goddess includes the Wild Woman, I like to think that we don’t go from Mother directly to Crone (in ordinary life) and that there is an innate wildness within each of us to explore – for me the wild woman is the bridge between The Mother and The Crone, which is where we discover our deepest truths before embracing the wisdom of the Crone… 

The Triple Goddess is the holistic expression of our authentic wildness. The Maiden, The Mother, The Wild Woman and The Crone are not separate phases in our life, the Triple Goddess is fluid, and we can access the power each of her archetypes when we need to. 

The Maiden, reminds us to be playful and curious in our daily lives

The Mother, shares with us the wisdom of being nurturing, loving and compassionate

The Wild Woman, invites us to reclaim our freedom

The Crone, asking us to be open to the mystery and hold space for something new.

What is Archetypal Wisdom and why do we work with the Goddess...?

Archetypes are a powerful teaching tool, that not only gives insight into ourselves, but also how we relate to others.  Archetypes are a doorway to behavioural change and that can offer us a rewarding roadmap to reaching our unique potential and experiencing greater fulfilment in life.

For Carl Jung, the reason for working with the archetypes was to allow an individual to achieve a sense of a cohesive self.

By working with Archetypes, we get to explore new and unknown parts of ourselves, allowing us to consciously create our life, by shaping who we are from the inside out, with conscious intention.

Working with the Goddess is powerful and alchemical work as she serves as a portal into our femininity.  She helps us to harness the different aspects of our femininity that work together to heal our wounds, expand our sense of self and birth a new way of being.  She supports us with wisdom and power so that we can strut our stuff like the badass goddess's we are!

Working with Goddess Archetypes can assist with:

  • Understanding ourselves and increasing our self-awareness
  • Finding more fulfilment in life
  • Improving our relationship with ourselves and others
  • Initiating personal growth through each of the archetypal stages
  • Healing ourselves and the collective
  • Gaining greater understanding of our social belief system

By awakening the pure power and innate wisdom of these archetypes/goddesses within you, you will realise your power and wisdom has been within you all along and that your inner goddess has been waiting for you to take the first step in igniting her wisdom.

The time is now…to reclaim your deepest and wildest self!

The path to reclaiming our deepest feminine power is one of the most powerfully healing paths we can take, and connecting with the Triple Goddess within us, can initiate this journey. 

The Triple Goddess is inviting you to reconnect with your wild and instinctual feminine power. 

We hope you will embark on this journey to reclaim, Remember and heal, so that we can birth a new era!

May the Goddess walk with you and light your path ahead.

Blessed Be

The Power of Working with Archetypes


Text to Speech

What is an archetype and how do we harness their power to create a conscious and authentic life?

Archetypes classify specific, recognisable, and universal traits.  Humans seem to have an instinctive sorting system of how we relate to people and it doesn’t matter where we are from in the world, the same archetypes exist. 

Jung is seen as the father of archetype psychology. He believed that archetypes exist in the collective unconscious and that stories and myths are an intrinsic part of our development.  According to Jung, the human mind retains aspects of our ancestors and this forms the basic foundations of being human. Jung also believed that our personality holds aspects of all archetypes, but that we are dominated by one archetype.  How these are expressed, depends on the stories that shape our upbringing, our values, character, culture, and the world around us.

Jung identified 4 major archetypes but maintained that there were many more.

  • The Persona: who you present to the world;
  • The Anima or Animus: the Anima/Animus is the mirror image of our biological sex.  The unconscious feminine in the masculine and the unconscious masculine in the feminine;
  • The Shadow: those things that society may think as unacceptable or what your own values consider unacceptable;
  • The Self: this is the unified unconsciousness and consciousness of an individual.

Other Archetypes include the Mother, the Hero, the Warrior, the Child, the Maiden.

There are various ways to work with archetypes:

  • Active Imagination
  • Dream Work
  • Astrology
  • God / Goddess Work

Why do we work with Archetypes?

Archetypes are a powerful teaching tool, that not only gives insight into ourselves, but also how we relate to others.  They trigger emotions and provide meaning.  Archetypes are a doorway to behavioural change and that can offer us a rewarding roadmap to reaching our unique potential and experiencing greater fulfilment in life.

For Jung, the reason for working with the archetypes was to allow an individual to achieve a sense of a cohesive self.

By working with Archetypes, we get to explore new and unknown parts of ourselves, allowing us to consciously create our life, by shaping who we are from the inside out, with conscious intention.

Why work with the Goddess Archetypes?

Working with the Goddess is powerful and alchemical work as she serves as a portal into our femininity.  She helps us to harness the different aspects of our femininity that work together to heal our wounds, expand our sense of self and birth a new way of being.  She supports us with wisdom and power so that we can strut our stuff like the badass goddess's we are!

We all have our own inner goddess and working with a specific Goddess, gives our inner Goddess extra va va voom. We can identify with Kali, see her fierceness in ourselves and allow her to help us bring that positive ferocity out where we need to. This work allows us to honour ourselves the way we understand the goddesses to be honoured. 

Working with Goddess Archetypes can assist with:

  • Understanding ourselves and increasing our self-awareness
  • Finding more fulfilment in life
  • Improving our relationship with ourself and others
  • Initiating personal growth through each of the archetypal stages
  • Healing ourselves and the collective
  • Gaining greater understanding of our social belief system

Getting started working with the Goddess Archetypes

  • Read about them and see who / what resonates with you.
  • Invoke an archetype you are naturally drawn to
  • The soul responds powerfully to imagery, find, or create an image of your chosen archetype

Once you have decided which Goddess or Archetype resonates with you, set up an altar in a visible location and place an image of your Goddess on your altar. 

Once you have created your altar , quiet your mind by taking a few deep breaths, drawing each breath deep into your belly and focusing on your heart space.  Take a moment to feel into what you would like to bring more of into your life by working with the archetype.

Light a candle and set your intention to invite in your chosen archetype, giving her space to infuse her particular shade of genius into your life.

Write down your invitation on a piece of paper, be very clear and specific on the qualities you are inviting in.  Place it on your altar and meditate on your request.  Let your candle burn for as long as feels right (supervised of course and remember pets are flammable 😉)

As part of your ongoing work with your goddess, you can meditate with her every day and placing seasonal offerings to her, on your altar.

New Moon rituals are a magical way to harness the lunar power of the moon to amplify your intention and desires.

The Goddess is rising.

Blessed Be.
