The trecena is Tochtli - rabbit and the day is Malinalli - grass that is twisted. with the guardian Petecalt guardian of medicines and pulque. The moon is waning crescent - reflection. During this reflection time of the cyclical evolution we acknowledge the surge of birthing. It is often those contractions that force the creation into existence. That is the nature of our planet. We have a cycle but we must acknowledge the contractions that bring creation. In our seasons it is the dark. In our moon it is the reflection and reset. Malinalli has the cycle of dark, stratify, growth, bloom, reproduce, harvest, and around again. The god of medicines guards this day bringing the harvest of malinalli into our awareness.
The power today is itzcuauhtli the crow. It translates to obsidian eagle. we honor crow because of it's versitle nature to be a raptor as well eating small animals. The mystery of crow is as old as time itself. Crow is the witches familiar. A dimensional traveler with a massive intellect. It is the bird of the crowne and affords us the self evaluation and loyalty in our relations.
The lord of the night is Chalchuihtlicue the goddess of the jade skirt or the lakes of our mother earth. Traditionally the stories tie her to water currents also. She is the essence of our life. WATER. She is asking us to look at this same cyclical pattern with water; evaporation, transpiration, condensation, precipitation. This cycle also has the surges of creation. There is no creation of water, just as with energy. It can not be created or destroyed. It can only transform and transfer. We ask for a balance of the water to fall in our parched lands and the distribution to work with these energies for balance. Ometeolt.
"The baby blessing was one of my favorite parts of the whole shower!"
I attended last year’s Ancestral Healing Arts workshop at Mt. Shasta and it was more than I could have ever expected. Sarah was a great leader and facilitator. I didn’t know how much healing I would receive from attending this workshop. We laughed, we cried, we shared our stories in a safe container. We learned how to set our 4 directional altars and we delved deeply into our family stories and personal healing. I plan to attend this year’s workshop in Ashland. I highly recommend working with Sarah.
“I had the honor of attending this ancestral healing workshop last Summer at the Goddess Temple in Ashland with this dear spirit healer. The whole experience was a powerful catalyst for some much needed changes & healing in my life.
I highly recommend this weekend retreat with Sarah where she will utilize the power of the four directions and various folk healing techniques to bring about any spiritual, emotional or energetic healing you may need at this time.
Sarah brings an open deer heart, compassion and a potent understanding of her medicine tools to each of her sessions where you will feel safe, and safely held in a good circle.“ ~ Cihuatochtli Denai Fuller
