Black Madonna

Black (Madonna) Friday and Islands of Sanity, Revisited.

Greetings, my friends! It's that time - Black (Madonna) Friday, the gateway to the Season of Lights, gratitude, and appreciation; and the sometimes (okay, often) scary Holiday Shopping Season. What's more, we're still navigating some amplified, sometimes challenging astro-energetic transits... Continue Reading →

Black (Madonna) Friday

  Ahhh, yes, the dreaded 'Black Friday', so called, that follows Thanksgiving Thursday in the U.S. For a couple of different reasons that likely share the same root, I can't quite get into the toxic-Friday spirit of the insane consume-o-brawl,... Continue Reading →

The Wise-Woman Way of Mary Magdalene

July 22 is the historical feast day of Mary Magdalene, so it's very fitting to share this updated post from the early days of Sophia's Children. Not that we need confine such celebrations and honorings to one day. After all,... Continue Reading →

Dec. Specials Alert + The Black Madonna, Mother Mary

Before I delve into a recent visit with The Black Madonna and Mother Mary that arose spontaneously this past weekend ... There are just a couple more days left for the pre-holiday Sophiastrology + Intuitive Reading consultation in my December... Continue Reading →

The Return of the Healing Feminine

“I swear by Apollo The Healer, by Asclepius, by Hygieia, by Panacea, and by all the Gods and Goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.” The... Continue Reading →

Life-force Rising: Spring and the Re-Emerging Feminine

"Whom should I turn to, if not the one whose darkness is darker than night, the only one who keeps vigil with no candle and is not afraid— the deep one, whose being I trust, for it breaks through the... Continue Reading →

Energies of Now: Shamanic retrieval in the sign of the Initiate

Update 9-20-16 and 1-15-18: I wrote this original post in early January 2016, yet it's drawn recent attention thanks to reblogs from my kindred spirit and friend Leeby Geeby @ Shamagaia and a few others (thank you!). Uncanny timing. As... Continue Reading →

Janus – Looking Back, Looking Forward + a 10-Year Anniversary

January is named for the Roman deity Janus, who stands with one face looking back, one face looking forward, but planted solidly right where he is at the moment. So it makes sense that Janus would be associated with transitions,... Continue Reading →

The Truth of the Matter …

I deeply appreciate Laura’s perspectives shared here in her blog post.

As I jotted in her comments section, this post in itself (as are so many) is a portal or potential doorway into dialogue with “those who have ears to hear” and can actually have conversation on such things.

It made me think of a favorite Anais Nin quote (shared in the image) — a very “Scorpio-Pluto” notion with which I and transformation-catalyst kindreds resonate deeply.

And it makes me think of what the Black Madonna symbolizes — and resolutely and with fierce compassion, stands for — and what the Great She evokes in us and stirs into embodied remembrance.

It also makes me think of the Power of the Word and the actual, real magic of presence, intention, attention, imagination … the very things that have gotten burgled and co-opted, unless and until we wise up to that and claim them back.

And it brings to mind the straight-talking, provocative, and evocative phrases — and invitations — from the late Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King about Creative Maladjustment and Transformed Nonconformists.

That whole Gen-X (and Kindreds) Phoenixing thing I wrote about recently.

Yep, I’m an associative thinker like that, but I think you’ll see what I mean.

Have a look; see what Laura’s blog musing stirs for you.

Lots of love,
Jamie

The United Nations 2030 Agenda decoded: It’s a blueprint for the global enslavement of humanity under the boot of corporate masters

by Mike Adams …
And this:

Yes, pun intended. Truth upon lies upon truth upon lies — a mise en abyme. Yes, I agree with Mike Adams (except his comment that only male energy can save us — imho, we need a return of the Sacred Masculine, as well as the Empowered Feminine.We’ve got plenty of patriarchal BS, thank you very little, but we need the Male Principle to get back in touch with the sacred, and we need women to become empowered in ways beyond putting on a pantsuit and out-aggressing all the men. We also need to recognize that masculine and feminine energies are bigger than sex or gender, and that we each have some masculine and some feminine begging for expression…
