Ixchel, Women's Creativity
Friday's card was drawn from The Goddess Oracle deck.
Ixchel is a Maya Goddess of the Yucatan peninsula on Cozumel, her sacred island. She is a goddess of the waters, the earth, the moon, and matron of weavers and artisans. She was known as Lady Rainbow, Mother Earth, Womb, and The Cave of Life. She helps assure fertility by holding the sacred womb jar upside down so that the waters of creation can be ever flowing.
She is here to remind us that women's creativity is expressed not only by birthing children but in everything we do. What do you do to show your creativity? Is it through your work, your family, your hobbies? However you do it find time for your creativity. Expressing yourself will help balance your life and relief stress.
