According to folk-lore, there is a trio of female archetypes, those being the Mother, the Maiden and the Crone – the latter often being referred to as a Witch or Wise Woman. Indeed, it is in the last and final stage, i.e. post menopause, that us ladies reach our spiritual peak.
In fact, the Crone side of ourselves is, incidentally, our priestess, healer and internal warrior, should we fully embrace it. The need for direction and guidance from others is no longer required. In short, we start to live life on our terms – without the need to apologize for doing so. Read the rest of this entry »
When we meet someone that we are attracted to, we don’t always listen to our ‘inner voice.’ Too often we go with our heart, instead of our head. When we don’t listen to our inner guidance and refuse to be patient, we tend to get hurt.
Women prefer men who say what they mean. Today’s women are independent and we want someone who brings out the best in us. We want a gentleman, a best friend. Yes, we want romance and respect, but most of all we want honesty and trust. For without it we have nothing. Some men never speak their minds or reveal the truth.
There are also the men who come on too strong, always calling, always texting, making you feel that he can’t live without you and everything seems so almost too good to be true. Then one day, he is gone, missing in action, retreated into his cave. I always tell women that when this happens to let it be. Don’t contact him! The reason he is in his cave is because he is trying to figure things out or find his own solutions. He needs some time and space for himself. Some will come back, and some will not, but in the meantime you must focus on yourself. Read the rest of this entry »
The editor asked me what type of horoscope I thought the newspaper needed, given that the male readership ratio was so much smaller compared to that of women. I told her that we needed to do a horoscope for males and females of each sign. We needed to break down the walls between men and women, because the newspaper’s advice column seemed to suggest neither sex had a clue about what was going on in the others’ head.
My plan was to write the horoscopes combining elements of Astrology and Numerology, but the meat and potatoes, the predictions within each horoscope itself, would come from me using a different Tarot deck each week. I did an overview for the week ahead, one for males and one for females, in which lot of the astrological elements were taken into account. This was followed by a male and female horoscope for every sign of the Zodiac. Read the rest of this entry »
Anger is an emotion that I have had many dealings with over the years. When I was growing up, my maternal grandmother commented about how angry I always was as a child. She observed this in the way I played with my dolls. She knew that my upbringing in an abusive and alcoholic household did not allow me to express myself to anyone, so I took it out on my toys.
As I became older, I was afraid of the anger I held inside. I didn’t know how to deal with it. I thought it was an emotion I had to suppress and not allow myself to express. When it did come out, it was at the most inappropriate and inopportune times. This wreaked havoc in my interpersonal relationships.
It wasn’t until a good friend of mine passed away many years later that my latent anger really became an issue. I didn’t know how angry I was at her passing, until a co-worker pointed it out to me. I decided to seek out a qualified therapist who specialized in anger issues. This therapist taught me how to deal with my anger in a constructive way. Read the rest of this entry »
Women who run with the wolves – not so easy! It’s hard to be a shiny person. A woman who runs with the wolves, even fellow sisters, often do not accept the sexually outspoken, beautiful yin-ness of the ‘wolfy’ being. And it can be hard to find a wolf pack to run with.
Many wolf women are wild because they are unbalanced – just like many quiet women. It’s just that the quiet women – the ones beaten and bruised – manage to fly under the radar as it is more acceptable to be a quiet survivor, especially if you are a woman. Passive aggressive wildness is the current norm, particularly in the professional world and the world of business. Out front, straight out behavior is generally not so acceptable. While the quiet ones have to learn to have a voice, wolfy women have to find outlets for their voice, as “muggle” society has little room for the wolfys who are singing with the sister moon.
Being a wolf woman has pitfalls. Many want to hang with them, hoping some of the wolfi-ness will rub off. Wolf women make everybody feel brave – and why not ? They model straight out behavior, and even more wonderful, if you have a wolfy friend she will never let you down. You are part of her pack. The bad news is, if you let her down, she will ban you from her pack. Wolves mate for life and take pack life seriously, not just for survival, but for love as well. Something most humans these days are not very familiar with in our instant, disposable society.
Packs mean you help each person shine, because the more they shine, the stronger the pack and the happier the pack. Packs also mean you respect strength and the communal leadership as it is hard won. Strong leadership means the pack can relax, they are in good hands. Horses understand this too. Read the rest of this entry »
A client recently called me about a new and promising relationship. She has a long history of dating men who show the promise of a potential long-term relationship, who then suddenly disappear or unexpectedly break up with her after few months.
It was immediately apparent to me that texting played a detrimental role in her dating woes. Misunderstandings due to texting have ruined the romantic, family and friendship relationships of many people I have worked with. This client was no different. Reading her energy I instantly perceived that she tends to push men away by panicking unnecessarily. Men can smell panic and it is a total turn off. It’s also stressful and will not change the outcome of a situation for the better. Excessive obsession, panic and worry will not bring someone closer to you. Instead it can push a potential long-term relationship away. Read the rest of this entry »
Divine messengers and emissaries, the Archangels are the foremost of the host of angels, and they help and guide us in our daily lives. Although they are established in many religious traditions, anyone may call upon them for assistance.
Most of the Archangels have names ending in “-el,” which means “of, or in God.” Though the spiritual traditions debate how many Archangels there are, the following are some of the most well-known to humanity.
Michael (Who is like God?) is the leader of the Archangels, often depicted as a warrior angel with a blazing sword. He can help in conquering our fears and anxieties, motivating us to do greater things, and seeking the truth. He’s also a powerful ally in breaking our addictions. Read the rest of this entry »
Inside herself she felt it, from the inside out, that she was meant to do different things, that she was meant to bring something to others from her own experiences.
“What does it mean?” she would whisper to herself late at night.
She was amazed at the fact of it sometimes, and at other times afraid. “Let it go”, They said to her, “now is the time to be what you were called to be, without thinking about it so much”.
All little girls are the Goddess, and the young girl discovered this as she grew older. She pondered these thoughts many times. How could she bring a message to bear that she herself knew nothing about yet?
But as she grew older, and lived some of what life had to offer, she knew there was plenty of tale to tell, about what went on in the heart of the Goddess. Read the rest of this entry »
