“For if that which you seek you find not within yourself, you will never find it without.” -Doreen Valiente, Charge of the Goddess

We have made it to the last few months of a very challenging year, and it likely will be a dynamic season. This time of year heralds transition and change, as we begin our descent inwards and downwards, into our deepest heart and soul truth, asking us to shed skins that no longer serve us, and awaken our inner flame of power that will embolden us to live in alignment with who we really are and what we really need. 

As the light of the sun and nurturing energies of the Mother energy wanes, the energies of the Witch/Magician begins to grow. At the Autumn Equinox, dark and light are in a moment of balance, offering us a rare opportunity to see from a more balanced perspective than usual. The energies of the earth and cosmos are urging us to awaken our inner Witch/Magician to create a balance between our inner life and outer reality.

The Witch honors life and death equally, and knows how to transform material reality. The Witch creates the life she desires, however, unlike the enthusiastic, innocent energies of the spring Maiden, she has matured through experience. She is more aware of what she is up against and how to empower herself through challenges. The Witch knows what needs to change or be cleared away in order to grow a better crop next year. 

This circle is the second of harvest season, celebrating the fruits of our labors. Thus, we will share gratitude and honor the gifts of the Earth.

Another theme will will discuss is that of power. How we lose it, give it away and how to reclaim it. We discuss the archetype of the Witch/Magician, perceptions of womxn’s power, and fears of persecution. 

We will go on a guided meditation journey to connect with our inner Witch/Magician, and reclaim any inner power lost from the previous difficult months. We will do a ritual to release old skins and gather the energy to forge ahead, followed by and empowerment tarot reading, feasting, gratitude and community support. Dessert & tea/beverages will be provided. (Space is limited to 5 people, face covering required, enhanced cleaning protocols will be in place.)
