It's a fine time, with a change of season opening -- that "in-between seasons" season -- to check in with the Divine Spark, the inner flame, the vision-seeds germinating under the surface, wanting to be showered with nourishment and attention.... Continue Reading →
"There is mystery at the heart of what holds us together, expressed in shared symbols, stories and experiences." ~ Brigidine Sisters On the last eve of January, we enter into the Mysteries of Imbolc, Candlemas, or Lá Fhéile Bhrìghde. As... Continue Reading →
Bobbie explores the 'outing' of yet another celebrity faux-guru, along with the greed-reveal of a miserly celebrity American bling-worshipping, integrity-challenged mega-church preacher, in her The Shift Has Hit the Fan blog post, "Another One Bites the Dust." This, along with... Continue Reading →
“I don’t criticize ...That’s not my approach. I look for avenues of transformation, and I feed them. I’m always looking to generate something, as opposed to just taking something apart.” “The way I think of it is, every time we... 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.
Big Love (and courageous Phoenixing),

Ready to Phoenix? Rise and Shine, Your Way.
For Soul Force-stirring Phoenix Clues, epiphanies, and greater clarity on what has joy, heart, and meaning for you (and how to step into and express that), team with me as your inspiration partner, mentor, and guide.
Here are a few options for getting started …
Give, Receive & Support the Work
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.
Or by Phoenixing, but more on that in a bit.
First, The Service Thing. Then the Gen-X Phoenix Thing, though non-Gen-Xers may well recognize some…

There is deep wisdom in aligning with the energy and spirit of the season ... of Nature's rhythms, with which are bodies are strongly evolved to orient towards (or suffer from the cultural dissociation with Natural rhythms!). There's also a wisdom and mythic quality associated with Imbolc, and other important archetypal energies and milestones as the wheel of the year turns. What inspiration and deep restoration awaits you at this time of the year ... or any time that Imbolc-Bhrigdhe wisdom might spark the fires of inspiration within you?
In this season (and greater time) of sifting the wheat from the chaff, and restoring the sacred to its rightful place in both the mundane and the lofty, it’s a fine time, too, to resurface this previous Sophia’s Children post on Restoring the World’s Lost Heart.
Big Love and Happy Equinox,
“In a time lacking in truth and certainty and filled with anguish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attempting to give back to the world, through her work, some portion of its lost heart.”
~ Louise Bogan, American Poet, and the fourth Poet Laureate to the Library of Congress (1897-1970)
Surely, if news headlines are any clue, the world has lost a good portion of its heart, and calls out for the restoration of its lost portions.
Restoring some portion of the world’s lost heart is the point of the Hero’s (or Heroine’s) Journey, or at least one of the shining facets of The Journey.
Those who’ve walked (or, like me, stumbled and crawled for a fair bit of) The Journey will know the truth in what Joseph Campbell…

There are so many good points in this post from Laura Bruno, that rather than excerpt and link, I’ll just let you dive in and see for yourself.
I’ve noticed this very phenomenon she’s highlighting in recent weeks (and even months) as well, where even in the (so called) consciousness- and engaged-spirituality communities we see not-so-veiled attacks on the Divine Feminine.
So I don’t know what’s up with this trend (because we’ve been there, done that … not that it’s ever gone away). The re-emerging Feminine must really be gaining ground if such attacks are coming from these corners.
Fellow oracles, astro-intuitive kindreds, and keepers of the flame — what’s your sense and your observations?
Here’s Laura’s post – so important for all of us who have been devoted to reclaiming, embodying, and midwifing the re-emerging Feminine and also lifting the lid off the smear- and false-history campaigns (see the previous Sophia’s Children post, Un-Erasing ‘Women Who Know’ for more on that topic!).
Read on for Laura’s post, and share your thoughts.
In an uncharacteristic pattern, I’ve been working on this post for a couple weeks. Normally, if I don’t finish in one go, then the post gets deleted or forever floats in limbo. I signed on yesterday with the intent to delete this one as too obvious, too alarmed, or too unnecessary. Then, I stumbled upon so many attacks on Nature, the Goddess and everything associated with the feminine that I realized I needed to finish this piece and post it. You see, the attacks weren’t just coming from men and the military industrial complex; they were also spouting from the mouths and keyboards of people who usually recognize and honor the Sacred and Divine Feminine, especially the Mother Goddess energies responsible for creation, seasons, nurturing, and growth. I post the following links as examples of just how insidious and desperate the attempts have become to eradicate the very principle of…

Yesterday we dove into flowing Piscean waters and the great sea (or Great She?) of being. So how about today we balance those elements and dry off a bit with some flame-tending and earth magic? I'm appreciating two beautiful musings... Continue Reading →
