The Crone, We are entering the time of the Dark Goddesses

Friday's card was drawn from the Motherpeace deck.

The Crone corresponds to the Hermit in a traditional tarot deck. She is the wise old woman. She stands at the cross roads and appears to those who need to make a decision. You are in darkness and not sure which road to take. She uses her lifetime of knowledge and shines a bright star in the sky to show you the way. Is there someone in your life who could be the Crone? Have you been listening to her or shutting her out? Or is the Crone you? It's not about age, the Crone represents anyone with knowledge and guidance. Is there someone in your life in need of your help? Think of these questions as you go through your day today.

The Crone also represents the Dark Goddesses. As Mabon will soon be here they are starting to call to you. This is the time of the Dark Mother, Demeter mourning the lost of the her daughter Persephone. It is time to finish your harvest and prepare for the long winter. In this coming season reflect on Hecate. She is the Goddess of the crossroads. Just like she aided Demeter in finding Persephone, she will be there to guide you through the dark times in your life.

  1. I just found out that today is Demeter's festival. On this day in ancient Greece, the Goddess Demeter was honored with a festival of secret rites.
