Who is the Dark Goddess, you ask? An often misunderstood and complex goddess, she has been known by many names in many cultures through out history. The Morrigan, Kali, Hecate, and Lilith to name a few.
Some of her symbols are the crow, raven, owl, spider, and snake. She is the moonless velvet night sky, the howl of the bitter night winds, the deep dark earth where seeds germinate. The time between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice is her time of the year.
As the Crone and Grandmother archetype, she possesses great wisdom. Holding the keys to locked doors and that which is hidden, she knows the unknowable. Being independent and sovereign unto herself, she shows us how to connect with our forgotten wildness and freedom. She creates and destroys, but she never takes without giving something in return. By destroying that which no longer serves us, she makes way for creating new things to come into our lives.
She asks us to face our shadow selves and our fears. To practice courage by being brave, not avoiding that which we fear. Fear limits us. As we move past fear, our lives open up to more than we once could have imagined.
She asks us to set boundaries, to stand up for ourselves and others.
In the Darkness, she offers us rest, renewal and rebirth. Just as bears hibernate in the winter, so can we go within, rest, and reawaken in the spring.
When we are lost in feelings of despair and loss, when we fall onto the floor in our grief, she is the gentle voice that whispers to us, "Get up." She is strength.
We can find her at the bottom of every breath we take, from our first to our last. Then, she will reveal the Great Mystery of what lies beyond this world.
