This is mine and Soleil's second installment of our new weekly Goddess Message. Today she pulled Maeve, who is a great warrior that seduced armies of men to get what she wanted. Her card meaning has two parts to it. She represents womanhood and our body cycles that go up and down and all around. She also supports us in any emotional crisis and she tells us that the door of opportunity is opening and we need to walk through it. I was going through some stuff last week with Soleil crawling and standing and I have to keep my eye on her at every second, and all of a sudden I found that I could not get any of my work done. Of course I love playing with her and entertaining her and teaching her, but I watched my work pile grow and grow and I could not tend to it. Putting myself last again. So thanks to my mom for saving the day, I am now in San Diego for the week at her house while she babysits Soleil, for a whole week! This is awesome! My captain is at sea, so I found someone else who can help me woohoo! Thanks for letting me vent. Any of you mamas feeling emotional this week like me? Check out the rest of Maeve's message below from Gaia Blooming.
This Goddess reminds us that all of life is cyclical: the moon, the stars and of course, the Universe. Life inhales and exhales again, to find balance. So why should you be surprised or upset that you too have cycles? There are times when you feel energized, awake, and alive. There are other times when you feel isolated and shy. Your body, too, goes through pronounced cycles and changes. Celebrate these rhythms, and embrace them as the essence of the lifeblood that courses through you!
Various Meanings of This Card:
-Female gynecological changes(starting menses or menopause, for example) are issues for you. -Make time to rest. -Initiate steps to alleviate depression or lethargy. -Take better care of your body. -Seek support for dealing with emotional crisis. -Allow yourself to grieve or take time off. -Know this lull won’t last forever. -A door-way of opportunity has opened up, and you need to walk through it now.
