WITCH QUEENS & MEDICINE WOMEN
Hekate and Medusa
22 February 2015
Hekate and Medusa are two goddesses much maligned in our Judeo-Christian culture as embodiments of pure evil, of the vengeful destructive faces of the dark feminine. Certainly there are some expressions of them that warrant such a reputation but these are distortions to the essence of each, a result of the persecution and dishonouring of the sacred feminine over thousands of years of masculine, patriarchal culture. The more recent, masculinised mythology of each paints them as demonic forces that must be subdued and repressed at all costs. But like their Hindu cousin Kali, you cannot get away with this without creating great trauma within and in the world, as we can see if we clearly assess the current state of the planet.
Underneath this mantle though, are two great Shaktis, at the core of our psycho-sexual life force that hold great spiritual and transformative power that can be used positively and with great potency in the world.
Hekate is both witch queen and medicine woman, a multi-skilled healer, midwife, shaman, ceremonialist, initiator and guide for souls. Similarly, underneath the enraged face of Medusa lies a goddess of great beauty, of the most all-encompassing love, of sacred sexuality and a fierce warrioress for the protection of the sacred feminine. They are both sorceresses and in their healed form, awesome archetypes within each of us.
This workshop coincides with Hekate conjunct the transformative Pluto in Capricorn and Medusa on the North Node in Libra, both of whom are aspecting the revolutionary Uranus. This is astrologically perfect for purifying, transforming and empowering both of them, in turn allowing them to offer the same to us. A great deal of magical, spiritual power will become more and more available from within each of us.
Daniel will bring a variety of deep and opening spiritual and therapeutic practices to the workshop designed to make the most of this awesome potential for reclaiming these forms of the sacred feminine.
Please not that this is also an advanced training workshop for Daniel’s past and present students in experiential astrology. Other non-trainees are very welcome and will get opportunities to work directly with these senior students on a one to one basis.
