Goddess Mati Syra Zemlya Image
"MATI SYRA ZEMLA" OR "MATKA", FOR SHORT, IS THE SLAVIC GODDESS OF THE EARTH. HER NAME TRANSLATES TO "MOIST MOTHER EARTH", AND DESCRIBES HER AS A FOREVER FERTILE, LIFE-GIVING FORCE. SHE IS NOT SEEN IN HUMAN FORM BUT AS THE EARTH ITSELF...ALTHOUGH IT IS BELIEVED THAT AT CERTAIN TIMES, SHE WILL TAKE HUMAN FORM. AND WHEN SHE DOES, SHE IS USUALLY PORTRAYED WITH BLACK SKIN WHICH ASSOCIATES HER WITH THE BLACKNESS OF THE FERTILE SOIL. MATKA IS BELIEVED TO BE THE MOST ANCIENT AND POWERFUL OF ALL OF THE EASTERN EUROPEAN DEITIES. IN FACT, MATKA IS SO POWERFUL THAT SHE SURVIVED INTO THE 20TH CENTURY DESPITE ALL ATTEMPTS OF THE CHURCH TO DO AWAY WITH HER.

SHE IS THE MOTHER OF ALL--THE PEOPLE, THE ANIMALS, AND ALL OF THE PLANTS OF THE EARTH. THE SLAVIC PEOPLE HAD A STRONG CONNECTION TO THEIR MOTHER GODDESS AND AN ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIP THEY HAD WITH ALL THE OTHER GODS. THEY LOOKED UPON HER WITH A MIXTURE OF LOVE AND ADMIRATION, AND SHE WAS THE ONLY DEITY THEY ADDRESSED PERSONALLY. WHEN THE PEASANT PEOPLE SPOKE OF HER, THEIR EYES WOULD FILL WITH LOVE. THEY CALLED ON HER TO WITNESS PROPERTY DISPUTES AND SWORE BY HER NAME. OATHS AND MARRIAGES WERE CONFIRMED BY SWALLOWING A CLUMP OF EARTH OR HOLDING SOME ON THEIR HEAD WHILE THEY SWEAR AND OATH. HER AID WAS INVOKED DURING EPIDEMICS AND WHILE IN CHILDBIRTH.

MATKA IS ALSO VIEWED AS A CHAMPION OF JUSTICE AND A WISE PROPHETESS WHO ALLOWS HER PETITIONERS TO COME TO HER WITHOUT THE AIDE OF A PRIESTESS OR A SHAMAN. IT WAS SAID THAT SHE HELD ALL THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD AND WHEN ASKED, WOULD RELEASE THE SIGNS THAT COULD BE INTERPRETED.

WHEN THE SLAVS CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY, THE CHURCH ATTEMPTED TO TRANSFORM HER CHARACTERISTICS THE VIRGIN MARY, BUT THIS WAS NOT WHOLLY SUCCESSFUL, FOR DURING TRYING TIMES, THE PEOPLE WOULD REVERT TO THE WORSHIP OF MATKA. HER HOLY DAYS ARE MAY 1ST, JUNE 24TH AND AUGUST 1ST. A RITUAL TO HER TOOK PLACE ON THE FIELDS IN AUGUST. AT THIS TIME, A LIBATION OF HEMP OIL WAS POURED OUT ONTO THE FOUR DIRECTIONS...ACCOMPANIED BY A PRAYER FOR PROTECTION AGAINST THE DESTRUCTIVE FORCES OF NATURE.

Sacred Caves In Greece  

Posted by Stella Clark

Sacred Caves In Greece Image
The CAVE is a cavity inside the earth which may be either natural or artificial in origin. Natural caves come into existence by the action of water or tectonic displacement. Both natural and artificial caves have served humankind in various capacities since time immemorial.

Caves are ambiguous spaces, offering both protection and shelter but can also trap and imprison. Because of its location within the earth, which many cultures have identified as female, the cave has been identified as the womb of Mother Earth, and associated with birth and regeneration. Although sacredness may have been invested in many other natural forms and objects (such as trees, mountains, etc.) during the prehistoric period, the earliest known sacred places are naturally-formed caves, such as that at Lascaux in France. In various cultures, caves have been location for the celebration of diverse cults and mysteries, and this was most likely the case at Lascaux.

Natural caves have long been a focus of veneration and appear frequently in both mythological and religious stories. The Greek god Zeus was born in a cave on Mount Ida (or Mount Dikte) on the Island of Crete. When excavated in this century, both caves were filled with votive offerings. Sacred caves are found throughout Greece, such as the Corycian Cave at Delphi sacred to the nymph Corycia and Pan. Rites associated with the Phrygian Mother Goddess Cybele took place in caves.

The Neoplatonist Porphyry (234-305 CE) explains that before there were temples, religious rites took place in caves. In this sense, it may be argued that temples in ancient Greece and Rome were in some respects man-made substitutes for the cave. It can be pointed out that the cella or naos of a classical temple was not provided with windows, so that the interior space was dark and cave-like (cf. the Athenian Acropolis). One set of doors provided the only access and the only source of natural light. The doors would have been opened on religious occasions, and perhaps at times when the location and angle of the sun (and because the temple was so oriented in the first place) permitted sunlight to penetrate directly into the otherwise dark interior space (such as occurs at Abu Simbel and Newgrange).

Greek Goddess Ananke Image
ANANKE (pronounced a-NAN-kee) is the Greek Goddess of necessity. She is one of the first Goddesses, coming into existence at the beginning of time as a snake-like being, entwined with the God Khronos. Ananke and Khronos surrounded the primal egg and divided it into the earth, the heavens, and the seas. Together they created Khaos (Goddess of the air), Aither (God of light), and Erebos (God of darkness). In later mythology, Ananke was said to be the mother of the Moirae (the Fates).

Pax The Roman Goddess Of Peace  

Posted by Stella Clark

Pax The Roman Goddess Of Peace Cover
"All we are saying...is give peace a chance." sang John Lennon. President Eisenhower said, " I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it." Even back in the rule of Caesar Augustus, people were longing for peace when a temple was built to Pax, the Roman Goddess of Peace.

Daughter of Jupiter and Lustitia, Pax was a minor Roman goddess whose cult was active during the reign of Augustus. Little of her cults practices and beliefs have survived, but we do know she was honored with several feast days and festivals. Her festivals are January 3, January 30 and July 4.

She is often depicted holding an olive branch and a cornucopia. The olive branch is the symbol of both peace and serenity. The dove returned to Noah after the flood bearing an olive branch in its beak symbolizing the end of the tempest and the flood. "Holding out an olive branch" is a way people say "Lets make peace."

The cornucopia is the symbol of plenty and good harvest. Pax is sometimes depicted holding one. The symbology is that peace brings prosperity and a time of growth. Pax thus is the Goddess of Peace and Prosperity. She tells us that one brings the other.

While history gives us little to work with to understand Pax, nevertheless our hearts tell us a lot. We all search for Peace. In the 1960s the Peace Movement in the United States brought an entire generation to understanding how important peace is to all of us. We in the US today have our peace symbol, just as Pax was the symbol for the Romans.

Perhaps it is time to once again seek out Pax and honor her. She brings messages of hope, peace, and good fortune. She can be honored with a small altar that holds white candles and if you have an olive tree, some branches from it. If you don't have one, olive colored stones such as Peridot are perfect. A peridot held in your hand will often be highly effective in bringing you a sense of peace. Try it.

Freya Goddess Of Love And Beauty  

Posted by Stella Clark

Freya Goddess Of Love And Beauty Image
"FREYA, QUEEN OF THE VALKYRIES"
"COLORS: RED -PHYSICAL LOVE; BLACK-PROTECTION"
"INCENSE/OIL-ROSE, SANDALWOOD, MINT"
"SYMBOLS: CAT, BOAR, FALCON, HORSE, SWORD"
"STONES/METALS--AMBER, EMERALD, JADE, MOONSTONE, COPPER"
"PLANTS-ALDER, BIRCH, ELDER, MINT, ROSE, THYME, FEVERFEW"
"DAY-FRIDAY"

Freya is the most beloved of the Nordic Goddesses. She was especially revered by women. They called on her to assist with affairs of the heart. She is the daughter of Njord and the sister of Frey. It is said that She once had a husband named Od, but She somehow lost him and cried golden tears for him. Little is known of him so no one knows how he disappeared.

Freya rode on a chariot pulled by two black cats. She sometimes wears a magnificent cloak of falcon feathers as she flies down deep into the Underworld to seek information for her role as seer. And, according to Norse legend, after battles, She and Her warrior maidens would ride helmeted and armed into the battlegrounds to select the most handsome of the fallen warriors to dine with Her in Her banqueting hall.

The Norse dwarfs were noted for their fine necklasses made of amber, and Frey was determined to own one, but the only way She could do so was to sleep with each of them. So, although She found them distasteful, She slept Her way to one of the necklasses. Golden ambers are sacred to Her and are sometimes described as the tears she shed when she lost Od.

Freya was not only a warrior goddess, but was also revered as a goddess of sexual pleasure and was said to sleep with everyone--gods, mortals, and giants. However, She is sometimes viewed as another aspect of Frigg, a beloved wife or spouse, and as a mother. as well as a family and earth goddess. She was mistress of the home crafts and her symbols were the spindle and the distaff. Her sacred animals were the ram, spider and heron.

Take time to think about whether you are living your own life to the fullest or whether it has become a routine without imagination for you. Think about Freya's wonderful cape made of falcon feathers and her necklasses of amber. Decide on a piece of clothing or jewelry that speaks of freedom for yourself. Perhaps invite others to a freedom meal and share your emblams with wine and laughter.

Religion Belief  

Posted by Stella Clark

Religion Belief Image
Although the majority of Muslims are meat eaters, there is also widespread remembrance of Muhammad's warning, "Do not allow your stomachs to become graveyards!" For this reason, meat is used in moderation in many traditional recipes. Many Sufi tariqats prohibit meat-eating during retreats. The Qadiri shaikh Abdul Karim Jili, commenting on Ibn Arabi's advice to avoid animal fat during retreats, stated that "animal fat strengthens animality, and its principles will dominate the spiritual principles."

The 15th Century poet Kabir, whose Sufism represented a fusion of principles from both the Islamic and Hindu traditions, unequivocally condemned meat eating, characterizing it as the ultimate failure of compassion, deserving of eternal punishment; he stated that even the companionship of meat-eaters was harmful to the soul. In a gentler tone, the 20th century Sri Lankan Qadiri teacher Bawa Muhaiyaddeen also encouraged vegetarianism, stating that arrogance, haste and anger may decrease by elimination of meat from the diet. He taught that consumption of meat promotes the development of animalistic qualities, whereas consumption of plant and dairy products promotes peaceful qualities; and noted that Islamic rules pertaining to animal slaughter have the effect, if properly observed, of reducing the number of animals killed for food. Bawa put these principles into daily action, preparing many impromptu meals for his community and guests, typically in 15-gallon quantities.

The Chishti Inayat Khan, who introduced Sufi principles to Europe and America in the early part of this century, expressed similar concerns. He observed that vegetarianism promotes compassion and harmlessness to living creatures, and that a vegetarian diet aids in the purification of the body, the opening of the channels of breath and refinement of spiritual faculties. He also taught that meat can be a medicine, and can help some people to withstand the struggle of life in the material world. Therefore, each spiritual seeker should be guided by a teacher in the choice of diet, a decision also inevitably influenced by the regional climate and food supply.

Moreover, if one carefully observes the eating habit of Prophet Muhammad and all other God sent and chosen personality, God's peace be upon them all, none of them were fond of meat. Rather they all took minimal mean, mostly depended on non-meat food source. Jesus Christ ate mostly fish, not meat. Prophet Muhammad liked milk, honey, dates and some gentle natured vegetables; didn't like to take even onions or garlic at all (which is a hindu vegetarian practice, interestingly). If one has to categorize, Prophet Muhamamd was a semi-vegetarian. Likewise, Buddha was a complete vegetarian.

Goddess Pietas Image
PIETAS (pronounced PIE-eh-tass) is the Roman Goddess of devotion. She represents both devotion to the Gods and to one's own family. She was often featured on coins, symbolizing both the devotion of the Roman state to its people and of the people to the state. Pietas is usually depicted standing next to an altar fire, with her hands lifted in prayer. In some depictions, she holds a patera (a ritual dish) or a censer. In still others, she either holds a baby or stands with children at her sides. Pietas' name means "duty."

Aradia Goddess Of The Witches  

Posted by Stella Clark

Aradia Goddess Of The Witches Image
Aradia (Altar of the Goddess) is the Italian Goddess of the Witches. She is the daughter of the Moon Goddess, Diana. According to Charles Leland in his "Aradia: Gospel of Witches", Diana divided Hersey to create the Darkness and the Light (Lucifer). Please note that this is not the Lucifer of Christianity, but a Sun god. She then used magic to charm and seduce Lucifer; this is how Aradia was conceived. Diana, deciding that She liked magic and wanting to develop it, disguised Herself as a mortal woman and went to Earth in order to teach both magic and sorcery. When Diana discovered that the people of the Earth were going through some very hard times, She taught the people magic so they could protect themselves, and eventually, She became so powerful, that She could no longer stay hidden. It was for this reason that She taught Aradia all about witchcraft.

Now, when Aradia had been taught to work all witchcraft, and how to destroy the evil race (oppressors), She (imparted it to Her pupils) and said unto them:

"CHARGE OF ARADIA"

"WHEN I SHALL HAVE DEPARTED FROM THIS WORLD,"

"WHENEVER YE HAVE NEED OF ANYTHING,"

"ONCE IN THE MONTH, AND WHEN THE MOON IS FULL,"

"YE SHALL ASSEMBLE IN SOME DESERT PLACE,"

"OR IN A FOREST ALL TOGETHER JOIN"

"TO ADORE THE POTENT SPIRIT OF YOUR QUEEN,"

"MY MOTHER, GREAT DIANA, SHE WHO FAIN"

"WOULD LEARN ALL SORCERY YET HAS NOT WON"

"ITS DEEPEST SECRETS, THEN MY MOTHER WILL"

"TEACH HER, IN TRUTH ALL THINGS YET UNKNOWN."

"AND YE SHALL BE FREED FROM SLAVERY,"

"AND SO SHALL BE FREE IN EVERYTHING,"

"AND AS THE SIGN THAT YE ARE TRULY FREE,"

"YE SHALL BE NAKED IN YOUR RIGHTS, BOTH MEN"

"AND WOMEN ALSO; THIS SHALL LAST UNTIL"

"THE LAST OF YOUR OPPRESSORS SHALL BE DEAD;"

"AND YE SHALL MAKE THE GAME OF BENEVENTO"

"EXTINGUISHING THE LIGHTS, AND AFTER THAT"

"SHALL HOLD YOUR SUPPER THUS."

"FROM "THE GOSPEL OF WITCHES" BY CHARLES LELAND"

"TO BLESS A SPECIAL CANDLE FOR SPELLWORK, TAKE A HAND-DIPPED BEESWAX CANDLE APPROPRIATE FOR YOUR PURPOSE. ON THE NIGHT OF THE FULL MOON, WHEN THE MOON IS VISIBLE IN THE SKY, EITHER GO OUTDOORS OR LOOK AT THE MOON THROUGH THE WINDOW. HOLD THE CANDLE IN BOTH HANDS AND PRESENT IT TO THE MOON SAYING:"

"HAIL ARADIA, QUEEN OF LIGHT;"

"STAND I NAKED IN THY SIGHT;"

"MAY THIS CANDLE BLESSED BE;"

"DIANA AND HECATE."

(Note: the phrase 'stand I naked' does not mean 'without clothes'. It actually refers to being vulnerable and in need of the assistance of the Triple Moon Goddess)

Goddess Groundedness  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Groundedness Image
The Earth Mother, Ceres, is the Roman name of the Greek Goddess, Demeter. She is the goddess of agriculture. The ancient tale of her stolen daughter (Persephone) helps to explain the cycles of seasonal change. During the period that she was sorrowfully searching for her abducted daughter, she was so stricken with grief, that she struck the Earth barren...the winter months. And once she finds her daughter...and for the six months that her daughter remains with her each year, the Earth is fruitful....the summer and the autumn.

There are other cycles which we, as women, experience...the Moon...our biological cycles. Ceres represents these cycles that we experience ans woman...and allows us to accept the ebbs and flows graciously. Working with Ceres' energy helps one to feel more centered, calm, and connected with the Earth. Are you taking good care of yourself?

Take some time out to look after yourself for a change. Make a list of activities that relax you. Indulge in whatever you want to do. We need to allow ourselves some time each day to rest and relax in our own unique way. It may be something like taking a walk in nature or quietly listening to our favorite music...or maybe it is doing nothing at all. Having the courage not to let the demands of others interfere with our special times is being a good friend to ourselves.

Coatlicue  

Posted by Stella Clark

Coatlicue Cover
Coatlicue, also known as Teteoinan (also transcribed Teteo Inan) ("The Mother of Gods"), is the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and Huitzilopochtli, the god of the sun and war. She is also known as Toci, ("Our Grandmother"), and Cihuacoatl, ("The Lady of the serpent"), the patron of women who die in childbirth.

The word "Coatlicue" is Nahuatl for "the one with the skirt of serpents". She is referred to by the epithets "Mother Goddess of the Earth who gives birth to all celestial things", "Goddess of Fire and Fertility", "Goddess of Life, Death and Rebirth" and "Mother of the Southern Stars".

She is represented as a woman wearing a skirt of writhing snakes and a necklace made of human hearts, hands and skulls. Her feet and hands are adorned with claws (for digging graves) and her breasts are depicted as hanging flaccid from nursing. Coatlicue keeps on her chest the hands, hearts and skulls of her children so they can be purified in their mother's chest.

Almost all representation of this goddess depict her deadly side, because Earth, as well as loving mother, is the insatiable monster that consumes everything that lives. She represents the devouring mother, in whom both the womb and the grave exist.

According to the legend, she was magically impregnated while still a virgin by a ball of feathers that fell on her while she was sweeping a temple. She gave birth to Quetzalcoatl and Xolotl. In a fit of wrath her four hundred children, who were encouraged by Coyolxauhqui (her daughter), decapitated her. The god Huitzilopochtli afterward emerged from Coatlicue's womb fully grown and girded for battle and killed many of his brothers and sisters, including decapitating Coyolxauhqui and throwing her head into the sky to become the Moon. In a variation of this legend, Huitzilopochtli himself is conceived by the ball-of-feathers incident and emerges from the womb in time to save his mother from harm.

A massive sculpture known as the Coatlicue Stone was discovered by the astronomer Antonio de Leon y Gama in August of 1790 after an urban redevelopment program uncovered artifacts. Six months later, the team discovered the massive Aztec sun stone. De Leon y Gama's account of the discoveries was the first archeological work on Pre-Columbian Mexico.
