Any time that the Scorpio Mysteries are afoot -- as they are with this New Moon, as well as whenever the depths, the lengthening nights, or other deep-Mystery phases and cycles are more noticeable -- we are in the liminal... Continue Reading →
First question: How is the ancient (and timeless) notion of 'Sovereign Feminine Wisdom' connected to the energy, archetype, and story of Medusa - the 'gorgon-headed' one of myth? Second question: Why is this both timeless and very relevant right now,... Continue Reading →

The momentum resumes. Or some of it, anyway, with Jupiter leading the way.
Here’s a fresh update on the ‘great benefic’, the Keepers of the Flame, and the Phoenixing Mission … for those who choose to dive in and rise to the occasion.

Here are a few options for getting started …

If you’ve found regular inspiration … or a super-handy dose of it … in this and other Sophia’s Children articles and offerings, consider supporting the work in one of these ways:
Lots of love,
“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
~ Gospel of Thomas, Saying 70
“The hope of the world lies in the restoration of the ancient magic that is part of your lineage.” ~ Steve Nelson
(Updated on May 11, 2016 from original August 2015 article)
As Jupiter continues to emanate its expanding archetypal-energy essence from the earthy-Feminine Virgoan fields,we may find remedy for what ails us (and culture) in the authentic service of the ‘my cup overfloweth’ variety.

Loved this from O and OM.
So very familiar, this Odyssean journey. (For fellow astro-mythology geeks, you’ll find Odysseus (1143) riding the waves somewhere in your chart – mine’s at 17 Taurus.)
Enjoy (and big congrats to O and OM for nearing the big finish!).
p.s. If you haven’t yet heard it, you might also enjoy the tale of Fatima the Spinner. You’ll find it here, in “If it’s Difficult, is it the Wrong Path?“

[Update 11-4-17: Lilith in transit enters Capricorn on November 8, 2017, which means over 2017 Lilith has been transiting the super-potent Galactic Center zone, perhaps amplifying Lilith-like themes out into the shared psycho-sphere (and yes, psycho-sphere is on purpose).
