Weekly Goddess Inspiration: Diana

The past two weeks have been full of movement and change, not to mention the perils (and blessings) of Mercury Retrograde. One of the major gifts of a Mercury Retrograde is the ability to finally put to rest things that have been unfinished, and this has been happening for me on a major scale. I have had the chance to really look at past patterns and lay them to rest, to pick up neglected projects and work on them, to revisit things I had laid aside. I led my first public women's Full Moon circle in over a decade, and remembered how much I love creating ritual space and sharing it with other women. I did a major cleaning of my living space, and am engaged in energetic decluttering even now, creating a space that will nurture me and my loved ones. I began teaching my first online class at Mystery School of the Goddess, and am plunging excitedly into developing more courses. And, just as Mercury came out of Retrograde, I was offered an amazing full time job -- after nearly a decade of poorly paid contingent faculty work. It's been a time of immense growth.

I am excited to have Diana, Roman Goddess of the Hunt and of the Moon, along with me during this exciting, energetic time:


Diana, from The Goddess Inspiration Oracle by Kris Waldherr

In Kris Waldherr's Goddess Tarot, Diana is pictured on the Moon card, and her message there tells us to explore spending time with women and with Nature. I find myself blending this message, and Her message to hunt for what brings me strength. Doing work around women's healing and spirituality is what gives me strength in many ways. Spending time in Nature -- even with the approaching broiling heat of a Texas summer -- is a major way I recharge my batteries. As I continue to explore these twinned messages, here are a few questions I'll be pondering:

What is "strength" to me?

What are my strengths?

When do I feel strongest?

When do I feel least strong?

How can I cultivate feelings of strength in my life?
