On this high summer, full moon night, the women were called to the Enchanted forest by the silent whisper of the Goddess. With a clear view of the sun melting into mother ocean, we cast our circle atop the wooded bluff top. Anointed with essential oil and fairy dust, we opened our intuitive sixth chakra to become clear conduits of Goddess wisdom.Our individual clear minds became one universal master mind of true wisdom and right action.In deep appreciation for each other and the world, we began our pilgrimage through the forest to forge deeper into ourselves and become more clear of our intentions. Without words, mindful of each step, we walked deliberately. Consuming the beauty of the forest, songs of the birds, scent of the soil and cypress, we dissolved the veils of separateness. With a heightened sense of light and sound we returned to our circle to enjoy the ancient story of Artemis.
The peaceful warrior Goddess, Artemis is known to be a midwife, way~shower, incredible athlete, unerring archer and tribe leader of wood nymphs. Born with an astonishing aim and the power to always hit her target, she eventually became vain and competitive. One day her twin brother, Apollo, tricked her into shooting and killing her only true love, Orion. With a broken heart, she turned Orion into a star constellation and vowed to only use her talent as an archer to protect and serve. She chose to leave her family and live in the forest. Her father, Zeus, created a tribe of feminine wood nymphs to keep her company. Artemis has become the archetype of transformation through tragedy. The warrior Goddess, Artemis, protects women, is deeply connected to Mother Earth, and shines her light so others can find their way…
We aligned our wisdom tunnel with the full moon. One by one, each woman closed her eyes and slowly walked thru the two lines of women who whispered of her magnificence. When she opened her eyes at the end of the tunnel, Mother moon was shining low on the horizon, symbolizing Artemis’ guiding light.
Next full moon ceremony Thursday August 18th. details coming soon.
