Energies of Now: The Liminal, the ‘Shamanic’, and the Phoenix

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 →

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.

Big Love,
Jamie

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…

Black Moon and the Black Madonna
