Fall Equinox is the balance of dark and light, day and night, and the drama of the descent of the Goddess¬†throughout multiple cultures and traditions reflects the equinox: Demeter and Persephone, Inanna and Erishkegal, Isis and Nepthys. The sweet sorrow of the Autumn season acknowledges that decay and death are always inevitable. ¬†Leading us through the innermost labyrinth are the the Dark Queens whose liminal natures signify the mysteries present in working the energies of life, death and rebirth: Hekate, Kali, Durga, Cerridwen, the Morrigan, Arianrhod, Coatlicue, The Fates. We honor the need for the downward spiral to connect with our deepest knowing. We reflect the shadows and the light.¬†
Continuing¬†the theme of balance, the fall holidays are also beginning: Mabon (the witches Thanksgiving), Navratri (Durga Puja and nine nights of the Hindu Mothers), and soon, Samhain. Gathering in community and celebration supports the challenging and rewarding inner work that we are undertaking.
Take time from the busy, modern rush to honor these ancient traditions and energies playing out in our transition to the season. Seek the depths of your soul connection to Goddess and treasure it as sustenance through the coming dark to the inevitable rise of light. Thank you for being community with MotherHouse of the Goddess and Mystery School of the Goddess. You are all part of my intense gratitude right now!
May the Shadow and Light of Goddess illuminate your soul and season!,

MotherRoot is seasonal and sacred inspiration that taps our roots, the soul seeds of magic and wisdom that we carry within us. Dive into the chosen articles, recipes, and magic-making practices to see what resonates, what evokes re-membrance.¬†Goddess, the Sacred Feminine, is at the root of it all and MotherRoot seeks to¬†make everyday a conscious step on the divine path back to source.
Just a Reminder – We have¬†moved to a new monthly digest format rather than the quarterly journal. You can still access¬†Rhythms of the Goddess archives¬†for browsing. As our tribe and contributors have increased, we have chosen to share the contributions on the site and then curate monthly magic and practices to embrace the EveryDay Sacred. Each MotherRoot monthly will come with a free¬†offering¬†from one of¬†our Wise Women contributors.
