Sacred Earth

‘It was such a pleasure to sink one’s hands into the warm earth, to feel at one’s fingertips the possibilities of the new season.’

Fiery Aries New Moon

This fiery warrior new moon in Aries also has
Uranus nearby, stirring things up.
You may be feeling chaotic, off-balance, wild.
When things get this crazy, it’s time to “go to ground.”

Calm yourself with daily exercise, yoga
or some other physical activity.
Better yet, spend time walking or sitting
with Mother Nature.
She will calm you.

Virgo Full Moon

Full moon in Virgo, sacred priestess of earth cycles and rhythms.

Long hidden truths are surfacing as illusions fall away.

A watery Pisces sun amps up your emotions.

You may feel wild in the midst of this shift.

Find solid ground.

Anchor yourself to Mama Earth in the storm‬.

Cathartic Full Moon

🌚

The waves] move across a faint horizon, the rush of love and the surge of grief, the respite of peace and then fear again, the heart that beats and then lies still, the rise and fall and rise and fall of all of it, the incoming and the outgoing, the infinite procession of life. And the ocean wraps the earth, a reminder. The mysteries come forward in waves.

Think Like a Tree

Think Like a Tree 
Soak up the sun 
Affirm life’s magic 
Be graceful in the wind 
Stand tall after a storm 
Feel refreshed after it rains 
Grow strong without notice 
Be prepared for each season 
Provide shelter to strangers 
Hang tough through a cold spell 
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring 
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky 
Be still long enough to 
hear your own leaves rustling.

I am EARTH.

I hold the now and anchor this present moment. Wind may ruffle me. Still I hold. I have seen so many now’s. Still I hold. I am fundamental ground.

I was born from light. Before this here and now, I was asteroid and meteor, the stuff of stars.  I came from light. Now I am the loamy dark place where new life takes root. I am the substrate, the fundamental ground where it all begins.

I hold physical here and now. I am both anchor and dock. I may assume many forms – sand, rock, clay, dirt. Yet in every form I am here to hold life. The physical begins with me.

Touch is my lover. I revel in the sacred caress of plant and animal bodies to my earth. I love to give the seeds a place to root and the waters a place to flow. I offer the wind a destination.  Sun and Moon love to dance with me.

I am still, quiet, calm ground.  I am EARTH.  I am Stone Goddess.
