November 19 we have not only a full moon, but a lunar eclipse in the sign of Taurus. This eclipse officially kicks off eclipse season as well as the scorpio/taurus eclipse axis that will be with us through the end of 2023. That's an indication of the power of this season and the truly transformational times we live in!
I discuss in the podcast above the astrological and planetary aspects that are brewing in the heavens to deliver us just the right dose of hidden truths about the world we experience and our power to manifest.
In the vein of hidden truths, we meet at this eclipse with Goddess Ngame of the Akan people of Western Africa. The Name of Ngame translates as "Shining One".
She is a moon goddess, primordial in the sense that she created the heavenly bodies as well as brought life and soul into every living thing with her moon beams. She was believed to have a new moon bow from which she shot (like arrows) beams of lunar light and life into all creatures. This is what turned them from inert beings into living breathing, should carrying creatures. Without her, there is no life.
She was also believed to give brith the the Sun every morning. Robert Graves write of her in his book “The Greek Myths” saying that she is connected to Prometheus as fire-bearer ... he also write of her in “The White Goddess” as not only as a Goddess of life but also as a Patroness of Creative Inspiration, and that the Moon Goddess in many cultures often operates as a muse.
