Woman's Space

"We all come from the Goddess and to Her we shall return like a drop of rain, flowing to the ocean"    ZBudapest.

We gathered for Circle last night.  Six of us, coming together in worship.  We came to worship the Goddess and have Woman's Space.

How important is it for us to gather together as women?  One of the things that led me to a Goddess-centered life was the ability to worship Divinity through the power of Women.  We need to see ourselves in a positive light, in a strong light and to know we exist in Divinity, separate from the role of care-giver and nurturer.  As we worship the Goddess we come to know Her power, Her strength, Her voice, and we know She hears and speaks to us.

"The Full Moon is calling, the fever is high, and the wicked wind whispers and moans..." , my favorite line from the Eagles "One of The Nights".  I love seeing the Moon rise, feeling my own fever and emotions rise, and knowing I have a place to be, with those who feel the same as me, in Circle.  Thirteen times a year I am able to honor my feelings, my love of the Moon, the Goddess and the Universe, and be healed and raised to the ectasy of the Divine.

Outsiders don't get it.  They think "How can you experience divinity outside of a church"?  My divinity lies within me, nurtured by the Moon, the turn of the Wheel, and the changing of the seasons.  It wakes up and smiles through the scent of incense and the light of candles burning.  It speaks to me through song and the written word, and as a Pagan and practicing Witch it is always there for me.  It may be different from the norm, but it's my way, and I am blessed to have found it.

Blessed Be

  1. I thank you for the remembrance of the power of a woman's circle. It is not about exclusion of men. It is about recharge of self as woman. I find after spending circle time with women, I am again more loving to self, and open and accessible to my family and my man. Just as he is to me after "guy time"....which ironically can be as simple as a game of pool at the pool hall with the boys. :)

    I remain grateful to be a woman in this era.
