‘Tis the Season of the Witch and the Dark Goddesses.
As we move from the light half of the year into the dark, we turn inward and request soul guidance from the Dark Mothers who hold sway over this time of year. For those seeking connection with Goddess and in particular the Dark Goddesses, my advice always begins with devotion. Approaching Goddess devotionally sets up a powerful circuit and allows for synchronicity, intuitive expansion, and personal connection.
Are you in search of Goddess? I do Find Your Goddess readings and if the Dark Goddesses are singing their siren call into your soul, check out the online course Meeting the Dark Goddess that is available through winter.
I also recommend the following books and perhaps try a bit of bibliomancy, especially with Goddess Guide by Brandi Auset. Sit with the book, breathe deeply, form the invitation in your mind, and open to a page. What Goddess comes up for you?
While the Dark Mothers are an intimidating group on the surface, there is so much that they bring to us – knowledge of our shadow sides, initiations, transitions. Without their influence and regard, we would not move forward in our journeys or incarnations. They represent the cycles of our human and spiritual lives. Archetypally, they are death (spiritual and physical) and the promise of rebirth.
Reach out … Goddess is waiting.
