Autumn is a time of reflection. The transition of the season brings us into the space of our inner realms. We ponder the harvest that is occurring now from the seeds that have been planted in the past year. The Dark Goddesses whisper invitations of descent, inner journeying, and shadow work. As Gaia divests herself of all that no longer serves, we are being asked to do the same. Look closely at what is coming to fruition and what is stagnating and needs to be released.
The drama of the descent of the Goddess throughout multiple cultures and traditions reflects the Autumn Equinox: Demeter and Persephone, Inanna and Ereshkigal. We honor the need for the downward spiral to connect with our deepest knowing. We reflect the shadows and the light. We know that we will rise again, renewed and filled with the wisdom of Goddess and her cycles.
Leading us through the innermost labyrinths are the Dark Queens whose liminal natures signify the mysteries present in working the energies of life, death and rebirth: Hekate, Kali, Durga, Cerridwen, the Morrighan, Arianrhod, Coatlicue, The Fates. The sweet sorrow of the Autumn season acknowledges that decay and death are always inevitable. We slip through the thinning veils and invite our Ancestors to sit and stay awhile, honoring our blood connections, our lineages, and our traditions.
The ongoing global pandemic, US election, and challenging astrology are adding pressures to our Autumn season this year. We have chaos-fatigue and there has never been a stronger need for us to remember our spiritual practices. Take refuge in the slowing down of the season. Seek guidance from your Ancestors. Seek the depths of your soul connection to Goddess and treasure it as sustenance through the coming dark through the inevitable rise of light. Bring your wisdom to bear in your communities and circles to hold space for healing and whatever our BIPOC sisters and brothers need.
Our daily practices, Goddess, gathering in Community, prayer, and spiritual fortification are all remedies for the transits and retrogrades of Autumn. They are also remedies for the many difficulties of the past few months. In these challenging times, we will come out transformed or not at all. Goddess is waiting.
May you and your Beloveds be safe and well. MotherHouse and Mystery School of the Goddess are here to support you. Make sure you check in with us online to participate in the monthly MotherHouse Goddess Temple meditations and healing circles.
May the Shadow and Light of Goddess illuminate your soul and season!
