I painted this Goddess at the Winter Solstice. May she fill you with hope and courage and energy for the New Year. May she help you delve deeply into this darkest of dark times. May she help you find beauty and wisdom within as you navigate stormy seas. Solstice Blessings to ALL and may these words also resonate with my Sisters and Brothers in the South who are celebrating Summer Solstice.

Prints & Cards are available in my Shop.

The Night Before Solstice (Crone Denial NO More!)

The next day – my Winter Solstice altar with Creative Soul Card: Crazee Janice dancing as fast as she can by Kathy Crabbe

I got sick for a day, probably because I burnt out on marketing, so I’m throwing it all out the window for Solstice…letting go…ahhhh. As I sit in my hot tub and feel the weight lifting I relax fully and completely into Goddess; into me.  Funny thing is, when I do this two great ideas come to me.

  1. I need to focus on ME and that’s okay; in my art and my writing.
  2. There isn’t much out there for the CRONE online. It’s Millennial dominated (and Gen X) and I am the bridge.

I was born in 1965 so I am the very first of my generation (Gen X) to turn fifty. I understand the computer and am comfortable there and I can share all I do with other CRONES.

Strangely enough,  I was at a store yesterday (bargain shopping, of course) with my buddy; a fellow artist and crone, and the checkout lady asked if I wanted the Senior Discount. “What?!” I said…”NO! I’m not a senior yet”. My friend, Terri Stiles Alkayali who is, inquired what qualified one as a senior and then gladly took the 20% discount. Later, she laughed, saying I was in CRONE DENIAL. I love that term. Did she make it up? Anyway, here’s to the CRONE and yes, I celebrate CRONE-DOM with my beautiful grey hair. I’m fifty and proud of it. ***Blessed Be***

Alone by Kathy Crabbe

I usually don’t get too personal in my blog, perhaps dreading looking back in a few years time at a post with regret, but I’m going to now, just because this particular painting inspired me to start a new journal (a moleskine) for my thoughts. In doing so maybe you will identify a little more with the paintings, with me,  or with your own private musings that never see the light of day (and probably for good reason).

‘Alone’. This is how I feel. But I like it. In fact, it’s delightful.

I never know what to do. I blunder.

I do consistently paint. For that I am happy.

I help others, now and then. I do my best.

Oh, the joy of being human.

Some online creators successfully hold a carrot on a stick, enticing all these women to believe they can sell their art, be in biz, etc. And these creators do model this well. But, sometimes it really bugs the shit out of me.

Interestingly enough I’m seeing some creators leaving behind old labels that they started out with…such as “the Goddess” or “the Astrologer”. What will I leave behind?

If I was just an artist, how would that be?

Difficult.

Why do I struggle so?

I do love to empower women. I love being a witch. I am more than an artist. I am a guide. And so it is.

Take a chance on ME ~ Sagittarius New Moon

Almost Cloned by Kathy Crabbe

Almost Cloned by Kathy Crabbe

Dear Creative Soul,

Take a chance on ME – it’s almost the Sagittarius New Moon!

Almost Cloned” is the name of the Fire Power Sagittarian Goddess I painted just for this New Moon and she says:

“Ya, today I’m feeling a little disconnected and apart from the world, but I still want to do my part and be of service. And if the only way I can do that is by drawing it out and sharing it with you, then so be it.”

I’ve done my part. Now it’s your turn.

Print me out and use me; to tell your story, to go within, to be more psychic, to draw with your non-dominant hand, to take a chance, and to be somebody you’re really really proud of.

Then share it; with me; with the world.

Please return the favour and credit Kathy as the artist along with her website too: kathycrabbe.com I can’t wait to hear back from you!

The Creative Soul Deck is coming soon Click here if you’re excited + want to win a deck!

Where’s Mama Moon? New Moon in Sagittarius, Dec. 11, 2:29 a.m., Pacific Time

Past Life Reading Spread for an online reading

Past Life Reading Spread by Kathy Crabbe

Past Life Reading Spread by Kathy Crabbe

Here is an example of five cards pulled for a recent Past Life Reading I did for an online client. I provided a ten page illustrated pdf of the reading which includes resources the client can draw upon to benefit from the reading. I also sent a pdf of an astrological birth chart wheel where I identify the North and South Nodes of the Moon along with a link explaining what this means in reference to one’s karmic history and karmic mission.

The cards pictured above are from my Lefty Oracle Deck and my Goddess Zodiac Power Deck. The Lefty Oracles will be available for purchase in 2016 as a deck of thirty. Click here to learn more.

CLIENT COMMENTS:
“Yes, it resonated with me a great deal. In fact, I feel kind of different as a result, as though some of my behavior/attitudes are now in context. It’s like I understand myself. I had kind of a vision that went through my head, that my soul feels anchored or connected now, whereas before my soul was insecure, like loose in the ocean or flapping in the wind.” ~ Cathy, Etsy Artist.

“I just wanted to tell you again how happy I was with my reading. I’m not sure what I expected but I was just amazed at how much it resonated with me. There were parts that I almost found myself laughing at because the message was one I’ve been hearing for so long from so many different places. You’d think I’d get the hint. 😉 But honestly, it was astounding to me…so consistent! I think the two main points that really hit home for me were “In stillness your truth will come to you” and “Be good to yourself/cut yourself some slack”. So much easier said than done for me. Seeing those messages laid out in this format really did seem to drive them home in a different way. I feel very blessed to have received such a great reading and such valuable insights. Thank you for choosing to follow this path and put yourself out there. This work you do is so helpful and refreshing.” ~ Rachelle from Texas

Yule Cards by Kathy Crabbe with a rubber stamp I carved to match my Goddess prints

Yes it’s looking a lot like Yule around my home right now.  This year I decided to make laser copies of my latest Yule Goddess painting for the cover of my Yule cards to send out to family and friends. I also decided to hand carve a rubber stamp for the back with the date on it. So far I’ve assembled 45 cards…now to mail them out.  Happy Yule!
