Weekly Goddess Inspiration: Cordelia

And now for something completely different! 

Well, not completely different. But this week brings a reading from a new deck, Doreen Virtue's Goddess Guidance Oracle. I love working with Kris Waldherr's Goddess Inspiration Oracle, and will continue to do readings from that deck here on the blog. But I've been working with a couple other Goddess decks as part of my new monthly Women's Full Moon Circle here in DFW, and I thought it'd be fun to bring them to you.

I like the Goddess Guidance Oracle a great deal. It has a very different feel from the Goddess Inspiration Oracle, and works with some of the same goddesses but also many different ones. A women's spirituality group I am part of online does a monthly Full Moon ritual in which the priestesses pull oracle cards, and the Goddess Guidance Oracle is one of their favorites. I also find that this deck is incredibly approachable for women who are newer to Goddess Spirituality.

This week, we'll play with Cordelia, British Nature Goddess:


 Cordelia, from The Goddess Guidance Oracle by Doreen Virtue


Celebrated in May, Cordelia is the patron goddess of wells and water. It seems incredibly fitting that she shows up for me right now, in the midst of a dry Texas August. (In spite of our very wet spring, areas of our state are approaching drought conditions again, as temperatures soar into the 100s.) While I'm not sure that I'm all that eager to heed Cordelia's message to go outside -- it was 106 here last week! -- I have been considering how much time I spend indoors, and how I miss time with Nature.

Some questions I'll ponder this week, and which I hope you will also spend some time with:

How can I find ways to spend more time in Nature?

What do I get from time in Nature? 

What can I do to improve my natural environment?

Can I find a sacred space in Nature close to home or work, where I can go regularly?

How do I tend my inner "wells" -- of energy, of inspiration, or compassion, of love?
