New Moon Magic - Illuminating the Solar Feminine
Sisters, are you standing in your power?
Many of us define the feminine as soft, passive, sweet, gentle, nurturing, receptive…
But what about the Mama Lioness who fiercely protects her cubs? What role does She — the strong, bold, vivacious, wild, liberated, independent, passionate, creative feminine — have to play?
The last moon cycle of Beltane we explored the spectrum of masculine and feminine energies, and the integration and balance of these energies within us and in the world. Now, as we move towards the Solstice and the radiant expansive energy of the bright summer sun, from this foundation of balance, we turn towards the solar energies.
Just as the lunar energies have been designated as feminine, the solar energies have largely been defined as masculine.
But the Solar Feminine is as integral a part of us as is the Lunar Masculine, and we need access to the Mama Lioness to call upon in times of need.
She is Shakti, Sekhmet, Pele, Kali, Aine, Brigid, Bast… She has a thousand names in a thousand languages.
She is the force of nature that creates, sustains and protects that which she loves no holds barred.
With the new moon energy of rest and reflection, allow yourself to feel into your Solar Feminine.
- What aspects of your life are worth cultivating and protecting?
- How do you do that from a place of wholeness and balance so as not to burn out, but to instead sustainably fuel your passions and gifts to the world?
- In what ways can your Solar Feminine support your medicine path?
As the summer dawns on us and the heat builds, may the blessings of the Goddess shine radiantly in our hearts.
