    The Mirror Pool: Sights And Insights – Reclaiming The Isle

    by Seer Matron Elisa In the Avalonian Cycle of Revealing, each of the Goddesses has domain over one or more of the full moons of the yearly cycle. The Yearly Cycle always begins with the holy day of Calan Gaeaf and Ceridwen, and we celebrate the first four moons of the year with Her. This coming full moon, February 16, marks the last of Ceridwen’s four moons. However, her “time” will continue until Blodeuwedd’s first moon on March 18. Therefore, Ceridwen’s time in this 2021-22 cycle runs from November 19, 2021, through March 18, 2022. (Forgive me if this feels like too much detail; I promise you, the deeper into…

    The Mirror Pool: Sights And Insights – Moon Of Initiation

    by Seer Matron Elisa I could hardly believe my eyes when I turned over the card I had chosen as the focus for this article: Moon 1, Moon of Initiation! For those unfamiliar with, or new, to the Avalonian Cycle of Revealing, Moon One marks the start of our yearly Cycle which begins on Calan Gaef. Perfect timing! I confess that I actually considered drawing a second card because I thought, “Oh, no one is going to believe I randomly chose this card!” But instead, I reached for my Mythic Moons of Avalon book and, as if Goddess knew I needed a reminder that She is always guiding us, the…

    30 Day SOA Challenge – 2

    Editor’s Note: This 30 Day Challenge will run in weekly segments with 5 days per segment. Each subsequent segment will be linked to the previous one. Click here for Days 1-5. THE SOA 30 DAY CHALLENGE Days 6-10 By Robin Corak Day 6: Scry! (At least try!) The act of scrying is intimidating for many people. Unless it is something you have learned or it is something that comes naturally to you, the pressure to see something in a bowl of water or a crystal can be overwhelming and frustrating. I think much of this pressure is due to the preconceived notions we have about scrying as well as the…

    Reclaiming The Feminine

    By Andrea Lewis (Part 1 of a 3-part series) A few years ago, I opened my Akashic Records and met with my soul from a successful past life. It was months after I launched my sacred business and because I wasn’t seeing the results I anticipated, I was ready to give up! From my mind’s eye, I saw the image of a woman come forth in the Akashic meeting room. She wore a medieval dress and orange-red colored cloak with gold embroidery around the collar and sleeves, her hair dark and flowing past her shoulders. She resembled a Priestess from the King Arthur era. “What happened during your lifetime that…

    Fire Meditation

    The Sacred Element of Fire  By Gaia Woolf-Nightingall Fire is a truly enigmatic element. It expresses itself in the starlight that filters into our eyes, illuminating the world around us. The vibrant colours of passionate expression, envelop the body of the flame. Red, orange and gold move in a pulsating dance. Bright yellow flickers on its surface and radiates through its heart, where a blue luminous eye holds the spirit of the eternal fire. The fire in the sky burns brightly displaying to us the brilliance of the day. Heating the earth beneath our feet and the air surrounding our bodies. The summer sun gives freely of its energy, catalysing the…

    Light of my Soul

    I AM THE LIGHT OF MY SOUL By Susan Morgaine In an uncertain world, one of the most important things we can do, as women, is to develop a soothing self-care practice. We were created by the Goddess, in Her image, and we carry a spark of Her radiant love for us. It is unfortunate, then, that the world does not see us as Goddess, nor do many even see Her, and so women, in our current society, are seen as “less than” we really and truly are. We must remember that, as Her daughters, we carry Her in our heart and, in so doing, project Her presence out into…
