This month, the Gods give way to the Goddesses, who rule and watch over this month of May. Goddess energy this month is strong. Many of us are undecided about how we stand in the face of these changes and adversity we witness all around us. For many others, there is an awakening and a deepening of something strong and solid in our core seeding what it is will come next, even if we do not know what form that will take. For some, this creates fear and anxiety. For others, a digging in and a desire to affect change in the areas of their passions. It is the women who will rule this planet; for men have held the power for too long. And what has been done with it? This is by no means a ‘putting aside’ of male energy–both are needed in their correct forms, and in correct measure so that ALL of us evolve and to thrive.
We have worshiped Goddesses since the beginning of time—the Lady Mary, who birthed the Christ energy; Sekhmet, a bringer of war and of peace, of justice and accountability; Kali, who helps those who cannot voice their anger and rage be heard rather than ignored; Green Tara, a comforter of those who are lost and who seek solace. Chang’e, the awakener of self-awareness, and like this goddess, you are capable of being reborn. And so many more…
Think of the Goddesses you pray to or admire. What quality do they represent? For those are the qualities you seek for yourself, or that you possess in some measure that will grow within you should your prayers to these Divine Beings be heard and addressed.
And without self-consciousness, allow the goddess inside you to shine, to nourish yourself and others, and to create peace when you can, and justice when you must.
Inviting Goddess energy is not the rah-rah false empowerment that encourages you to be more-than so others are less that is put forth by neophytes and false prophets with big followings and slick marketing presentations. True Goddess energy is about standing firm in your beliefs, your authenticity, your integrity, honor and ability to speak the truth without harm to another, except when harm is warranted. (And even then, I would caution care.) This takes a special kind of courage honed over time, with hardship and glory, with love and devotion and a strength that is developed by living and learning and giving and taking and seeing clearly who you are and who you are not, where you are strong and where you are not. Accepting. Then behaving accordingly. We are all capable. Now what will you do with this?
May you all have a blessed and beautiful Mother’s Day and month of May.
“The spring is fresh and fearless
And every leaf is new,
The world is brimmed with moonlight,
The lilac brimmed with dew.
Here in the moving shadows
I catch my breath and sing-
My heart is fresh and fearless
And over-brimmed with spring.”
– Sara Teasdale, May Night
