Goddess LUV

Goddesses from my book

Goddesses from my book

Goddess Luv!!! I painted over 36 goddesses during a month of channeling the moon when it was in each sign of the zodiac. I also wrote poetry and researched goddess myths for my book because at that time it was mainly gods that were being talked about in astrology and I wanted to express the Divine Feminine… I’ve never shown these paintings before anywhere so this is a first… at the time when I wrote this I didn’t even have a website in 1996… My book can be purchased in my Etsy shop at www.creativesoulguidance.etsy.com

Goddess Zodiac Book by Kathy Crabbe

Goddess Zodiac Book by Kathy Crabbe

I channeled the Zodiac signs as Goddess paintings for my book back in 1996 then interviewed Etsy artists based on their sign and how that influenced their art …i incl goddess poetry based on their myths and altar suggestions to create your own new moon circle…all paintings were created when the moon was in a particular zodiac sign…it took me a month but OH what a DIVINE trip that was ♥♡♥…avail. in my etsy shop as a PDF in color of course at www.creativesoulguidance.etsy.com

Trickster Goddess Le-Hev-Hev

Le-Hev-Hev” a Melanesian Goddess…‘she who smiles so that we can draw near and she can eat us’ …Painting Goddess has once again brought me back to myself, after a week of painting aliens and feeling alienated and gloomy The Sun has come back! Prints and cards are available in my shop.

Le-Hev-Hev by Kathy Crabbe

Le-Hev-Hev by Kathy Crabbe

About Le-Hev-Hev: Before a departing soul could pass to the afterlife, the Melanisians said, it had to confront this goddess, who tried to trick the soul with games. Drawing on the sand in front of her, she challenged the soul to complete her diagram. Should the dead one be unable to do so –or did so incorrectly — Le-Hev-Hev had the soul for dinner.

The Malekulans who honored Le-Hev-Hev considered her a goddess, not a monster, offering her boars so she would not eat human corpses. Her earthly forms were the spider, the crab, and the rat; she was also embodied in female genitalia. Her name has been roughly translated as “she who smiles so that we draw near and she can eat us.” ~ from The Book of Goddesses & Heroines by Patricia Monaghan

End of Year Museletter: it’s been a BIG year!

Dear Creative Soul,

Here’s one last blog post for you as we approach the end of 2015.

As the year draws to a close, I’ve been dealing with a week long cold and cough knowing that many of you may be in the same boat. Not pleasant, but it’s given me space and time away from my business and marketing. Space to gain clarity and a chance to re-evaluate my goals. We are in the shadow time of Mercury Retrograde which occurs from Dec. 19-Jan. 4 whereas the actual Retrograde is from Jan. 5-24, 2016. So, it’s a good time to do just that; re-evaluate.

I was planning to self-publish my Creative Soul ‘Lefty’ Deck, but don’t feel the interest is there and I personally don’t ‘see’ it when I look into the future. For those of you that did express interest I offer you this link where you can view all 69 cards in my own personal deck plus several extras.

This past Cancer Full Moon occurring on Dec. 25 may have helped many of you enjoy an even more traditional, heart-felt, homey holiday season because the Moon rules the sign of Cancer and Cancer is all about hominess; it’s the sign of the parent; the mother, the nurturer and it also represents our emotions that ask us, ‘where do we feel most at home and what brings us comfort?’ When I painted this month’s Cancer Full Moon Goddess I asked my husband who has a Cancer Moon, what one word best describes how it feels to have a Cancer Moon and he said, ’emotional’ and so I explored that word in the painting below.

Being in my emotions feels powerful and scary by Kathy Crabbe

Being in my emotions feels powerful and scary by Kathy Crabbe (Cancer Full Moon)

This past year saw me delve into so many new and exciting projects and I’d like to share them with you, such as:

1. Teaching and facilitating my New Moon Creative Soul Circle for the first time at:
Yoga For Life, Temecula
Gypsy Luv, Pomona,
Rosewood, Menifee
Inspire San Diego Studio
Mt. San Jacinto College

Moon Circle Collaging

Moon Circle Collaging at a private home

2. Giving Creative Soul Readings in person at:
Gypsy Luv, Pomona
Bailey’s Winery (Elizabethan Feast), Temecula
Karma Boutique, San Diego
Learning Light Foundation, Anaheim

3. Painting a series of small, abstract, watercolor landscapes both plein air (outside/in the field) and then abstracting them further at home.

4. Turning 50! Plus achieving my lifelong dream of building a cottage on a lake. My husband and I also stayed overnight there the day I turned 50 and spent time canoe-ing on the lake for my birthday.

5. I began advanced Shamanic training (3rd Road Celtic Faerie Tradition) with my mentor, Francesca De Grandis.

6. Myself and two other artists began an artist’s support group in Temecula, California.

7. We adopted a puppy that was abandoned in our neighbourhood and named her Djinn Djinn. She is now spoiled rotten and a huge buddy for our big dog Abby.

8. I joined The 52 Project put on by Riverside Art Museum and am creating one new painting a day for 365 days which I post online in the hopes of having a 4 day exhibit at the museum. It’s open for anyone to join at any time and then you can have your own show!

9. I finally started an Instagram account to document my 365 days of art plus a Tumblr blog.

It’s been a BIG YEAR!

Kathy & Mark

Kathy & Mark her beloved, Temecula, California (Ponte Winery)

In the coming year I plan to continue to paint and post my artwork and my writing daily. I plan to continue being of service by offering Creative Soul Guidance and I plan to celebrate the New and Full Moon through ritual, meditation and painting which I’ll share with you in this Museletter and on my blog.

So thank you dear creative soul, for all your love, support and encouragement along the way.

Blessed Be and Happy New Year!
