We live in transformation times!
I hope that you can feel December 2020 has been packed full of intense energies. We have so much light and information codes coming though to our planet now. We have the eclipses of November 30th and December 14th. Followed by Saturn entering Aquarius on December 17th and Jupiter entering Aquarius on December 19th. Then coming to meet as one bright star in the night sky on December 21st.
In addition to the conjunction of Jumpier and Saturn, on 12.21 we have Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere (Summer Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere), the gathering of Elders to activate the Uluru Prophecy, the Hopi and Mayan Prophecies, as well as Egyptian Goddess Nut activating the night sky.
I will discuss all of this in detail at a live online retreat on 12.21. You can find the link to join us here. as well as by clicking the image at the bottom of this post.
For the purpose of this post & broadcast, I want to share a little bit about Egyptian Goddess Nut. Nut (pronounced 'newt' or 'not') is one of the oldest goddesses in Egyptian mythology. She is the goddess of the sky (nut actually means ‘sky’ in the ancient Egyptian language). It was believed that that the sky is, in fact, a star-covered nude woman arched over the earth in a plank or perhaps down-dog position. Some of her titles include Mistress of All, She Who Holds a Thousand Souls, and She Who Protects. The image below shows Goddess Nut as she is often depicted, swallowing and birthing the Sun.
It's worth noting that Nut is often shown with blue skin and start painted on her skin. This reflects the belief that she was the sky which enveloped the earth.. and the stars that we see at night were actually her body.
In the image to the left she is sown with Geb, her divine masculine counterpart.
Below we see the goddess Nut depicted in the Temple of Hathor at Dendera. In a similar fashion, she is swallowing the sun and birthing it as well.
Due to her role in the regeneration of the sun each day, Nut came to be considered a protector of souls as they entered the afterlife. She was a friend to the dead, a mother-like guardian, who would help the souls leave the underworld and join her in the stars. For this reason, the inside lids of many sarcophagi are painted with images of Nut. A prayer often written on ancient tombs reads “O my Mother Nut, stretch Yourself over me, that I may be placed among the imperishable stars which are in You, and that I may not die.”
I offer here that as we are each entering into our unique death/rebirth process that Nut is here to support us in the letting go and being reborn. I hope that you enjoy the broadcast and can join us on 12.21.
