and I need Goddesses. And there are hundreds and hundreds
of Goddesses whose energy and archetypical essence is swirling
within your DNA awaiting your overture. (Check some of them
out in my books Legends of the Stones and Prodigal Daughter)
of the significant life purposes of every woman is to connect
with Herself—with a goddess—with Hecate
or Aphrodite or Epona
or Artemis (or one of the other goddesses)
so that we may wed their (your) ancient gifts and skills to
your modern living. Native American storytellers remind us
that we walk upon the shoulders of the women who came before
us....mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers....back and
back and back thousands of years to the goddesses that imbued
our genes and wombs with courage, strength, healing and wisdom.
Take Hecate, for instance. (Pronounced HECK-a-tay).
Goddess of The Fork in the Road. She stands at every crossroad.
You can meet her there and she will guide you on your journey
for she is the one that sees into the past, and far into the
future as she stands tall in the present. Her advice is crucial
to making the right choices and veering away from the kinds
of errors we made in the past that may well reverberate into
our future. There are always a number of pathways available
to us. Which is the choice without potholes and boogey men?
Which is the path with sunlight and roses? Which way? Is it
time to retire? Or change careers? Get married? Get a divorce?
The Fork in the Road is Hecate’s stomping ground. Just
call her. She’s ready, willing and able to point the
way for you.
Or Artemis, Goddess of Protection. (Pronounced
ART-a-mus). She is my heroine and mentor. She’s the
protector of vulnerable women, children and animals. She’s
FIERCE and tender all at once, a warrior with the strength
to ward off harm—strong, brave and daring—and
a heart as loving and caring as a grandmother. Are you being
harassed? Abused? Provoked? Threatened? If you are feeling
unsafe, call on Artemis. She carries weapons and a shield
that she’s not afraid to use on behalf of any female.
No one fools around with Artemis!
Or Metis, Goddess of Wise Counsel. (Pronounced
MET-is). She was the goddess who was swallowed by Zeus because
of her genius and brilliance. He was jealous of her. Metis
comes to aid you so that your creativity, skills and talents
will not be swallowed up by male chauvinists in the work place
or the home. She guides you to success as she helps you get
your bearings and move beyond workaholic to reflection and
perspective. She melds intuition, intellect and experience
Or Hestia - Goddess of the Hearth. (HES–
Or Aphrodite - Goddess of Passion (AFRO-dy-te)
Or Epona - Goddess of the Horse Pegasus and
Winged Travel (Pronounced E-pona)
The Goddess calls to you in the depths of the night, in the
rising of the moon, in dreams and melancholy, and in the first
blush of dawn. Listen for Her call and respond with all your
might. You and She have the power to change the world. It’s
