Spring, Glorious Spring is coming! After a wild and whacky winter in so many areas and the eclipses of February, we are ready for the enlivening energy of Goddess to revive us and bring forth Her promise of new life, new energy, and new manifestations. The seeds that began their quickening at Imbolc are bursting with life-affirming spirit and providing visual cues that Goddess is extending across the land.
Laughing Woman is dancing into our life, bringing joy, wonder, and lots of laughter. She revels in the liberation of Spring and the gifts of new beginnings. Shed the gloomy winter humdrums and allow her to bring the restorative power of big, belly laughs and the warmth of small, shared chuckles. Laughing Woman is the embodiment of delight and the YES of our creative powers!
Goddess is new again too. The Winter Crone takes a step back and the Maiden of Spring is revealed to perpetuate the cycle of life. The joy and innocence of the Spring Maiden Goddess affirms the potential of our creative lives and the ability to dance, sing, and stand in the shower of blessings.
Celebrate Goddess and support Goddess women in small business – our Goddess Gift Guide for Spring is out (see tiles at the bottom of the site for specials!). If you are interested in advertising your business, let me know!
Monthly horoscopes from Audrey Alison are a great way to get an idea of the cosmic weather for your month. See the MonthlyHoroscopes here.
March is also the month for Women’s Herstory AND International Women’s Day. Let’s educate and lift ourselves and each other by sharing voraciously on social media about WOMAN POWER! The theme for International Women’s Day is Be Bold For Change and we are taking actions in our individual lives to do that. Connect on #BeBoldForChange. Share Goddess Myths as potent reminders of Women’s sacred source and our founding HerStories.
