New Moon in Taurus, Mercury Retrograde in Gemini ~ Reclaiming the Divine Feminine & More

Plant seeds of intention today/tomorrow to grow into bloom by the full moon (short term) and over next 6 months (long term)…since it is also Mercury retrograde, though, REflect upon & REview your words carefully…they have power!  Mercury retrograde is a great time to go back & do something you wanted to do before (or from your past) and also anything beginning with “RE” ~ REnew, REhearse, REvisit, REconnect,REdesign & more…especially in friendships, communications, all things ruled by Gemini….also, REthink the myth of Medusa, the snake goddess (start here: http://www.covenofthegoddess.com/goddessmedusa.htm) and REconsider what you may fear both in sexuality and in your temple, as this new moon is REvealing new ways to think about this classic maligned Goddess, rising feminine kundalini wisdom, sacred sexuality and more…(Algol is located in constellation Perseus, in the center of Medusa’s forehead, and could also be considered a third eye, or intuitive knowledge, cut off by the patriarchy)

Medusa (Dark Moon, Crone, Snake Goddess) was one of three Goddesses divine to the Libyan Amazons known, along with Athena (New Moon, Virgin, Warrior Maiden) and Metis (Full Moon, Mother, Sea Goddess), and in ancient Libyan myths, this Triple Lunar Goddess rose from the water as Anatha.

“Serpent-haired Medusa ruled over the regenerative mysteries of sex and death, and protected these magical rites from being discovered and abused by the uninitiated. As the third, crone/destroyer aspect of the lunar triad, Medusa’s message was one of wisdom, and it concerned the inevitability of death. AS an Ocean Goddess of the West She guarded the gateway of death and granted safe passing to all souls entering the oceanic entrance to the underworld.”
