Blessings of Winter, the Solstice, and the Holidays to ALL!
Things have been moving at lightspeed here at MotherHouse and Mystery School of the Goddess! The good news is that Mercury has gone direct and with the Solstice just past and Christmas coming, we get to take a few days of rest and celebration!
We celebrated the West African Goddess Mawu for our Goddess Full Moon Group Winter Solstice and you can listen to the archive here and sign up for future Goddess chats and meditations …
Mawu is a West African Creation Goddess. She sees into our souls with the Moon as Her eyes. As we sink into deep reflection at the close of the calendar year, Mawu gives us safe space and draws the shades of night to allow us quiet womb time. Under Her canopy, we can take a much-needed respite. Each day, Mawu writes the destinies of humanity and passes them to Her son, Legba, to deliver. Look and listen for Her messages. Take the information that She provides and prepare to seed your field anew at the Winter Solstice, just as Mawu set down the first seeds of creation. Her messages come from a myriad of sources: nature, the Sky (Her home), through strangers (it just might be Legba himself), and in dreams. Rest with Mawu in preparation for your own creation process and allow Her to soothe and guide you. Place a bowl of seeds on your altar to honor Mawu or simply lay on the Earth at night and allow Her to speak to you.
This past week it was my honor to be a guest on the PawedCats Podcast with Nikki and Brent to discuss Winter Goddesses, practices, and ways to celebrate winter! It was so much fun and you can tune in here: Winter Goddesses Podcast
On this Winter Solstice edition of the PawedCats Podcast, Kimberly Moore of The MotherHouse of the Goddess and The Mystery School of the Goddess talks about the Goddesses of Winter and simple practices to connect with their empowering energies this season. The discussion includes power words, the comforts of hygge, and Goddess oracle readings. Learn more about how “Goddess meets us wherever we are,” as Kimberly puts it, and discover winter practices you can do to empower your New Year! Starcat also has an exciting announcement to share, on the topic of creativity. Listen now!
I also had a chance to catch up with our favorite Jungian Astrologer, Mary Lomando, who is just back from Egypt. We talked about the Astrology trends from now through the early eclipse season and through the first three months of 2018. Mercury, Saturn in Capricorn, Full Moons, New Moons, Lunar Eclipses, Solar Eclipses, and Blue Moons, Mary gives us a heads up on the cosmic influences for our New Year. She is also running an astrology reading special (highly recommended) and you can contact her here. PLUS, only 2 spots left for her Spring Egypt trip!
How are you setting up for a magickal New Year? We have some gorgeous offerings through the end of December on Mystery School of the Goddess and from our contributors! Here are a few links for now and I will be sending out some more goodies between Christmas and New Year.
