Welcome to the first new moon of the astrological new year! This year not only has the potential to be the most inspirational and transformational yet, but it also comes ripe with the invitation to clease, release and rebalance.
Luna is conjoined the sun (as always during a new moon) in Aries. We also have Mercury and Eris in Aries, supporting us in forward movement for positive and ultimately (many months down the road) revolutionary changes.
The primary focus of this podcast is acquainting us with Goddess Eris. She is both a recently discovered semi dwarf planet. Her discovery led the astronomical community to demote Pluto, a planet recognized as holding power in our solar system for a very long time, to a dwarf planet. I introduce a lens that we might look through to get a glimpse at the broad and oh so necessary power of the divine feminine as found in Eris. Also a nod to Pluto, who is unaffected by the idiosyncratic and go preserving moves of patriarchy/humanity.
The myth that we commonly know of Eris is that she was the only Goddess not invited to a wedding of the Gods (Peleus and Thesis) yet she showed up anyhow. Not admitted when she showed up, she didn't make too much of a raucous, she simply threw a golden apple into the crowd with the words "For the fairest".
This spell of sorts caused the three goddesses present who felt they were legitimately the most beautiful (Hera, Aphrodite and Athena) to fight amongst themselves in an ego driven state, starting a battle that ultimately launched the Trojan war. Was Eris responsible for starting the war? I offer, No. Rather, it was the exposed ego of the squabbling goddesses that threw things into chaos. Eris, was simply pointing out the loss of unity consciousness among the gods and their ego & patriarchally leaning ways. She is here with us now to support us in retiring to unity consciousness. More on that in the podcast above!
Finally get ready for rebirth with the Sacred Earth Retreat!
I am happy to be able to offer a live in person retreat at Seeding Reciprocity retreat center this May 20-22, 2022!
