Beloveds. I woke up this morning in tears. Sad tears. Mad tears. Aching tears. Smite them all tears. As I sat in release, I felt my a gentle breeze on my face. Arms wrapped around me and a voice whispered, “I know”. Then, with a thump of wings, I heard the scream of the screech owl. Lilith.
With all that is happening, She is calling us to gather. To see and hear each other and acknowledge our pain, our anger. She is calling us to release what we can right now, support each other, and begin healing. In Her name. In the refuge of Goddess. In the company of sisters.
On the Dark Moon, I am hosting a call to talk about the energetic challenges we are experiencing, to explore how Lilith can assist us in channeling our grief and rage, and to have a forum to share and support each other.
Like the screech owl for whom Lilith is named, Her screech cannot be silenced. She is all women who have been subjugated, humiliated, and cast out from male-defined society. Her rage is the rage of women who have realized that our natural women’s sexuality has been made dirty by men who fear the power of it and the power of free women.
Lilith is the experience large and small of each and every woman on this planet at one or more times in our lives: the rape victim who was asking for it; the woman who is told to shut up and, if she fails to do that, who is ignored; women who bump up against “glass ceilings;” women whose natural rhythms are disrespected, bullied into hiding, and are even denuded through pharmaceuticals and surgical manipulations; women who are told through nearly every aspect of society that they are not good enough, pretty enough, thin enough, or accomplished enough – and that they never will be; women told that their growth depends on the surrender of their bodies against their will and true desires; women who are subjected to sexual mutilation; the woman who lives in fear and isolation in her relationship with a man.
Lilith brings us the message of creative female force in the breath of Her beloved spirits of Air. In Her serpent form, She calls us to cast off the parts of our lives that our suppressing us. Through all forms, She invites us to stand with Her and to know that we are never, ever alone.
Our call will be on Zoom, so you may join by computer or by phone. The call details are in the online space when you register. There will be an archive available for anyone who cannot join the live call on 10/7 at 7pm eastern.
Blessings to all of you, all of us in these days. You are not alone ever.
See you on the Dark Moon …
