Psychic Sunday ~ Thanksgiving 'Party' at the Owl's Lantern

Sagittarius Goddess Artemis by Kathy Crabbe Dear Creative Soul,

With Artemis and my mentor by my side I'm stepping up to the plate and bringing my own voice more authentically to the forefront of all that I do.  So, what does that mean for you?

My Creative Soul Classes are now called Moon Circles and my hour long Circles are now free (donation only).

I've also designed a new banner for this website which was based upon the badge I used for my Divine Feminine eClass which I've renamed the 4 Week Moon Circle.  I'll be offering this Circle at Mt. San Jacinto College and once again at Susun Weed's Wise Woman University in 2015.

Why do you need to know about all these changes?  Because I'm finding my way and I want you to know what that looks like 'cause who knows, maybe it will inspire you too. I'm spending more time listening to my guides and my ancestors. I'm devoting more time to my art-self (and really digging the work of surrealist artist Leonora Carrington). I'm learning how to speak in public through Toastmasters and through joining the Holistic Registry in Menifee, CA where I'll be giving 60 second talks and then hour long presentations (Moon Circles). I'm being HONEST with myself and with others about what it is I actually do (I've updated my bio to reflect this which you can read at the bottom of this post).  So if this resonates with you then you're in the right place.

The other thing I'm doing differently now that I've come out of my Hermit Phase (for the last 5 years; basically since the economy took a nose dive) is that I'm giving in-person intuitive readings starting this Sunday, Nov. 30 at The Owl's Lantern in Fullerton, CA.  And I'm doing readings differently than anyone else (as far as I know). I'll be channeling/writing what comes through and then talking about it and giving this written material to the client 'cause that's how I work best and I'm no longer afraid to stand up for my own weird and wonderful way of doing things. I believe it makes for a better reading AND a reading that you can actually take home with you.

Calling all Warrior Women

Lately I've been connecting more with Goddess as warrior and so my paintings reflect that. I associate warrior Goddesses with the elements of fire and air; turbulent, creative, passionate; women who seek change and truth and revolution. It's time, don't you think? Below you will find a video featuring three warrior Goddesses, one of whom is Tangerine Bolen, Revolution Truth founder and director and a good friend of mine. The words were written by Tangerine and spoken and danced by Rivera Sun, author of The Dandelion Insurrection. Music is by Crowfoot.

Druids: a Holy Female Sisterhood

Mugwort Zine, No. 3, Feb. 2001 © 2010 by Kathy V. CrabbeFemale Druids also known as dryads (Greek) or oak nymphs were oracular priestesses, each with her own personal tree spirit. Dryads were also known as priestesses of Artemis, whose souls dwelt in trees. Dryads could also assume the shapes of serpents and were called Hamadryads or Amadryades. Dryadism and druidism (Scottish) were two phases of the same religion, restricted to a female priesthood in the earlier, matriarchal stage, but later open to male priests as well. Irish churches were originally known by the old druidic name of dairtech, or "oak-house," a sacred grove. The Christian church attacked the Druids for their paganism, and also for their tendency to include sacred women in their ranks.

The "colleges" of druidesses, dryads, and high holy sisterhoods were later assimilated into Christian nuns. One of the three classes of druidesses consisted of secluded sisterhoods, such as the priestesses of Brigit, who lived in convent-like sanctuaries while tending perpetually burning sacred fires. Another less secluded class of druidess consisted of married women who lived at the temple and went home occasionally to visit their husbands. A third class was composed of temple servants who lived with their families.

There is no break between the ancient semi-magical formulae chanted by the Druids and later incantations of the wizard and “wise woman.”

During the tenth lunar month, also known as the “Moon of Exhilaration” or Vine Moon we celebrate the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. The Vine Moon is dedicated to Dionysus, Osiris, and Bacchus and her five-pointed leaves are sacred to the White Goddess. The energies of this moon symbolize peace and enduring strength. The wild-growing vine or bramble also governs inspiration, imagination, poetry, and imagery.

The essence of strength contained within the Vine is retained in her wine.

My Handpainted Celtic Tree Goddess Deck ~ Inspiration

I have always been inspired by tales of the Celts and Druids probably owing to my red haired lineage and my collection of red-haired friends (and a red haired husband as well). So I painted a series of Celtic tree inspired Goddesses on silk for a hand lettered one-of-a-kind book that I later turned into a Celtic Tree oracle deck used for giving Soul Readings. If you would like a soul reading exclusively with this deck, just let me know ahead of time when you purchase your reading or to purchase a Celtic Goddess print or card please click the link.
