One and Only – so far

Spirit guides seem to be the hot topic this full moon and it calls to mind – and heart – my Soul Sister. 

I’ve had experiences with spirits and other nom-Deity entities in the past, but I have one guide who has been embedded in my spirit.

I found her at a time when I was having experiences that were pointing me toward possibilities in therianthropy. I never found any conclusions there, but I did find her.

I went to a drum led journey ritual at a local sacred land site. I had my doubts about the group I was with and the fellow leading with his Drum, but my doubts turned out to be unfounded.

I journey to a site of personal power and burrowed into the Earth until it gave way before me into a downward winding path. At the bottom I found her there, lounging amongst her tumbling Cubs. 

I don’t think my eyes ever left hers, nor hers mine as we stared into each other.

Her fur was like flames in the darkness. A large and royal beast. Full of strength and wisdom. Grace and compassion. 

My Tiger stared into and dared me to turn in fear or rediscover doubt. I’m so grateful to have found her that night.

She’s been by my side through health failure and depression. Child birth and self discovery. Now she’s with me through motherhood and the return of health and depression issues and I don’t know if I could keep going through without her. I turn to her and find reassurance in her gaze. Reality in her growl. Strength in her silence.

On this full moon I dedicate the light in the sky to her as The Lighthouse Moon. No storm yet has run me aground with her lighting my way.

Minotaur Moon

The 14th was a full moon, a Super Moon at that, and my did it’s magic have things in store for me.

I’m not yet ready to share the details on this blog, but I was graced with a long coming awakening that has rejuvenated me like nothing else has.

In my last post, I talked about the conflict between Poseidon and Hekate and I believe this was a direct result of my fears of choosing between Them. I was shown that despite the differences in how They choose to work with me, Their combines energies are awe strikingly powerful.

Hekate pulled back the shadows surrounding my secrets and painlessly dragged them from me and into the light. Poseidon washed away as much of the trauma from them as was due at this time. The impact on me has been not just spiritual, but physical as well.

In Reiki, we learn that a deep healing of past traumas can result in physical symptoms and I’m experiencing this firsthand for the first time.

I feel so blessed to have received the gift of this healing despite the wrongdoing I made to Poseidon. As atonement I’ve named the November full moon for Him with the name Minotaur Moon.

It’s a moon of breaking down walls and revealing the inner mysteries without hesitation.

I keep using the word “blessed” lately but I can’t describe in any other way. I feel so blessed that with each passing day I feel my relationships with the Gods growing. I’m truly experiencing the results of my piety.
