The other experience I had this weekend was priestessing in the role of the Maiden for a triple priestess polarity working in the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel's annual ritual for the Stag God Cernunous. I spent a lot of time thinking in the past week as I got ready for this role. I found some of the typical “maiden-style” dresses are no longer cute and comely on my maturing figure.
So, in order not to look like a tart, I found an appropriate dress that was pretty and not to showy for my figure, and then I went barefoot! I invoked the verile Stag god with every molecule of my being. Then I danced and sang, clapped and stomped. I stirred up all of the carefree joy and sense of play and newness rushing of life that is the quick heartbeat of ripening.

When I was a child, I always wondered why the Greek Gods were seen as playing chess with the human race. I thought it was a insensitive take on our interactions. This morning I was meditating on the myths of Ouranos and of Prometheus. I started looking at the influences of Mars, Mercury, Jupiter and Uranus in my life right now. They all influence us differently and via for power and control. Those measley humans at the bottom them seek the balance of all of those influences and exercise theirown will to mitigate a messy game of chess turned rugby.
I turn to the Sun in the center, seeking balance and harmony of the other spheres. Those spheres turn in an ever shifting, ever unique dance. I walk the star road ever a different path. May my silver sandles not wear out and my my vision be forever in starlight.
