Nut, Egyptian goddess

Card of the day: NUT – The Celestial Vault

The sky. The stars. Protection. You are reborn from night each morning. Start anew.

Nut, whose name means “night,” is a mother goddess worshiped by the ancient Egyptians as the physical embodiment of the night sky. Paintings depict her as a dark-skinned, naked woman covered in stars, with her body sharply arched over the earth in protection. She is married to the god of the verdant earth, Geb.

A myth relates that the sun god, Ra, is born each morning from Nut’s womb. The rosy color of the sunrise is said to symbolize her blood as she pushes him out into the sky. It is also said that the dead are taken into Nut’s celestial vault, where the goddess would eternally protect and nurture them.

Have you been crushed, tossed, and turned by the trials of life? You have the power within you to recreate yourself again and again, if need be, as if a phoenix rising from the ashes. To paraphrase a Christian song based on Lamentations 3:22-23, “The steadfast love of the Lord (Divine Spirit, God, Universe, insert your term of awe and respect here) never ceases/ His mercies never come to an end/ They are new every morning/ Great is Thy faithfulness.”

You are renewed every morning indeed. Start anew with faith, hope, and love in your heart.

Hathor

Card of the day: HATHOR – The Golden One

Prosperity. Love. Fertility. Prosperity awaits you. Look for examples of it in action.

Hathor the Golden One – such is the designation of the ancient Egyptians for this goddess. She is the divinity considered powerful enough to address varied issues ranging from difficulties with love to difficulties with manifesting prosperity.

A goddess of fertility and plenty, Hathor is believed to be mother to the pantheon of Egyptian gods and goddesses. Honored as Mistress of Heaven, she is also identified with the Milky Way, that beautiful band of stars so visible on dark, moonless nights. She was so popular that at one point, she was served by 61 priestesses in her temple.

Hathor is petitioned for both personal and communal abundance, from help with a love affair to rituals invoking the goddess for the creation of a generous harvest to feed everyone.

Similarly, the proof of abundance is all around you. You limit your perception so severely if you think that abundance is just about money. If you have an abundance of health, wealth, love, joy, and peace of mind, then how rich you are indeed! Be the Golden One and manifest the true and lasting riches of abundance in your life and those of others.

“It is the nature of the Creative Mind to respond to us.” – Ernest Holmes

“But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.”
– Psalm 37:1, NKJV

Cimidye

Card of the day: CIMIDYE – Goddess of Vengeance

Suffering. Transcendence. Transformation. Your difficulties transform you. Take heart, for you will be vindicated.

Cimidye is a Tucuna Indian goddess of the Amazon. Her story is one of vengeance and transcendence. After she was deserted by her cruel husband in the deep forest, she encountered a spirit guide in the form of a large blue butterfly. Dragonflies are potent symbols of illusion and impermanence. In Zuni mythology, they are numinous shamanic creatures who act as intermediaries between the spiritual and physical worlds.

The dragonfly took pity upon Cimidye and magically transformed her into a dragonfly. They were able to take revenge upon her husband, thus freeing Cimidye from her marital vows.

In the midst of your own suffering and pain, know in your heart that these will change you for the better. If you feel that you have been the victim of unfairness or injustice, then know that you will eventually be vindicated.

“It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them.” – Deuteronomy 32:35, NIV

Pajau Yan

PAJAU YAN-Lady Moon

Luck. Health. Changes. No matter what changes may come, you will be at peace.

Pajau Yan is invoked as Lady Moon in Vietnam. She is a benevolent goddess who bestows good health and good fortune among her worshipers. Usually honored on the first day of the waning moon, Pajau Yan is believed to cause lunar eclipses as her way of granting glory to the sun.

According to the story, Pajau Yan used to live on the earth. However, to keep her from bringing the dead back to.life, she was banished to the moon. This suggests that some situations cannot be changed so you just have to make peace with them. Nevertheless, the goddess can still spread goodwill from her celestial home. Similarly, once you adjust to a situation, you have the power to spread love and blessings to all.

Kuan Yin + Isis oracle pulls

Today’s random pulls from my Kuan Yin Oracle & Isis Oracle, both by Alana Fairchild:

(L) Kuan Yin/Bamboo Moon card: This is all about Divine Timing. Sometimes you feel that “nothing” is happening in your life, your plans go awry, your best intentions fall flat. But listen: consider Divine Timing and the bamboo tree. It takes 5 years for its roots to ground so you see nothing much happening immediately after it is planted. But once it is its time to grow, the bamboo flourishes in great height and foliage in all its serene, majestic glory. When it is time, it will be time. Until then, be at peace, dear one.

(R) Isis/Serpent of Fire: Priestess of the Serpent Sisterhood card: This is all about awakening your Kundalini energy, or that raw, sexual/life-force energy from the base of your spine. Kundalini rises up to animate the rest of our bodymindspiritheart so that we can be creative and selfless in acting for the highest good of all. Let Isis help you harness this energy for your highest good. Om Mani Padme Hum.

Taken together, these 2 “random” card pulls today are saying simply this: The Divine Timing for raising your vibration/Kundalini energy is NOW. What are you waiting for?

She and He who have ears, let them hear. And act upon such promptings from the Universe.

You are blessed in order to be a blessing.

Pele

Card of the day: PELE – Goddess of Fire

Volcanoes. Passion. Anger. Be empowered by anger.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, Llewellyn Worldwide, 2007)

Pele, goddess of fire among the Hawaiians, has the ability to create as well as to destroy. Known for her tempestuous temper and passionate love affairs, she can appear as a beautiful maiden or as an ugly hag with brown skin as coarse as lava. Whatever form Pele assumes, what stands out is the power of her anger.

We tend to immediately brand all anger as negative. However, righteous anger, the kind that arises in response to real social injustices and inequities, can be an exception. Also, if you are angry enough about an issue or situation that you are galvanized into positive action in order to change it, then that anger can be transformative.

Learn to vent your anger in healthy, productive ways but do not automatically dismiss it out of hand. Trace its roots of your anger and try to “analyze” the anger if it has merit. I know it may be difficult to be objective once eruptive feelings are already a-brewing, but your anger can still serve a constructive purpose. Primum non nocere (First do no harm.)

“Use thought, not as willpower, not as concentration, not as coercion, but always with definite direction and conscious intention.” – Ernest Holmes, “Living the Science of Mind,” p. 295

“Curving back within myself I create again and again.” – Bhagavad Gita

Demeter

Card of the day: DEMETER – The Mother

The seasons. Motherhood. Loss. Honor the divinity of your grief. Then spring will return.

(Deck: “Goddess Inspiration Oracle” by Kris Waldherr, Llewellyn Worldwide, 2007)

Demeter, Greek goddess of the harvest, is considered the mother archetype of the triple goddess consisting of maiden, mother, and crone. Her story explains the seasons and offers solace through the ages to mothers everywhere who are dealing with loss.

When Demeter’s daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades, god of the underworld, to become his bride, Demeter became inconsolable. She searched far and wide towards the ends of the earth for Persephone. When Demeter learned that Zeus allowed Hades to wed her daughter, grief and fury overcame the harvest goddess. So that the earth may reflect her mourning, Demeter put a halt to the flowering and ripening of plants, thus creating winter for the first time. A main ritual associated with Demeter, the Thesmophoria, allows women to work through pain and honor their grief, recognizing its goddess-like divinity.

Indeed, whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Pain and grief make you part of the human experience. Of course no one can quantify how much pain you are going through on account of your loss and suffering, but I believe that we need even these experiences to toughen our spine and put steel to our resolve. Just hang in there: honor your grief and then spring will return!

“Be patient and tough; someday this pain will be useful to you.” – Ovid, 43 BC
