Womb of Light: The Alchemy of the Goddess

Womb of Light is an exploration of the Sacred Feminine and the application of Her transformative energies. These writings will have the intent and focus of inspiring and quickening within the individual a thirst for deeper connection and opening to the magick and gnosis of the Goddess in all of Her forms. She is the Mother, the Uraeus, the Muse, the Warrior, and the Healer, to name a few. SHE is the cycle of life and death and all that is held between; and my goal is to share the wisdom of her Womb of Light that all may claim their Divine birthright.

Act Two: The Beauty of a New Darkness

“My love, we share the measure of the scales and we have danced in this embrace of veiled and light may times before. My time of command over this space of harmony is nearing its end and soon I will pass into a light that is darker and more intuitive in its work. But, tonight we move closer to one another, I am a blind lover in your darkness and you the holder of the key to that love.... “

The curtain closed and Luna and Sol stood face to face. They knew that each would be distracted by the other if they did not maintain their distance. Sol turned and walked back into the wings, the darkness of the stage enveloping the tracings of his light as he moved.

Luna remained where she was; not wanting to break the spell of energy she had woven. She breathed deeply and began to walk towards the darkest corner of the stage where she could be undisturbed as the scales were placed once again on the center floor and the sounds of the audience moving about during this intermission crowded in. She sensed that she had gone deeper into this archetype than was usual and that the transition into her next characterization tomorrow would be even more intense.

As she reflected on the energy this would require, her attention was drawn to a conversation going on in the theater. The words being uttered were surprisingly clear and she could feel the excitement from the person speaking… “ I love this performance! Thank you so much for bringing me. You know, I came right from work and was feeling so overwhelmed by what’s going on there and I considered just calling you and saying that I couldn’t make it. But I just kept hearing  something say that I needed to go and that this could be the fresh start of something.”. There was another voice now in reply… “That’s odd, I have had the same feelings and that’s actually why I got us tickets, front and center. Go figure. I guess we were both following our intuition”  

The first voice chimed in again…”Yeah, I’ve been having trouble balancing everything in my life right now. You know what it’s like. Work, family, friends and all of those other things that provide joys here and there, but are at times difficult to see as beautiful gifts in my life. I’ve been thinking about this all month and I am so ready to make some changes. I’m not talking big ones, Just baby steps where I can find more time for myself and maybe even enjoy something that is creative.”

The speaker paused for a moment and Luna could sense that tears were welling up inside, as the words finally continued.... “When the curtain opened and I saw the beauty of scene and heard the first words uttered by Luna, I knew that this was going to be an experience I would remember and more importantly, that if I surrendered to what was occurring on that darkened stage, my own scales would somehow balance out in just the right amount of what I need and what I can ease up on. There is hope and there is beauty and there is joy all around me, but I have to want to take the first steps in actually being able to see it. And, now I know I can.”

Luna sensed that more was being said, but she had heard all that was needed and taking her place once again center stage, she was beaming inside at the change that had occurred for this person. Sol came from the wings and took his place, his light now slightly dimmer and a hush fell over the theater once again as the curtain parted and Act Two began.

The scales had been elevated once again as center point hovering much higher now. They were glowing brightly and with the height it was not easy to see which of the pans held the greater weight. The impression was one of movement back and forth like the rising of the waves.

Sol was the first to speak and his voice was strong and clear...”Luna, I have come to you this night, as on similar nights, so that we may dance in union. We seek the balance of love and the harmony of an ebb and flow of heart and mind that reach out to one another in the darkened light. Each step I take towards you quickens me to dim that which would reveal your beauty before the time is ripe and full with the potential of your greatest gifts. Although I am wise in my years and on this night you hold the power of youth our adoration of one another makes us as one.” He moved to just beside her and rays of light extended from his arms as he reached out towards her. The orchestra began to play an ethereal and haunting dance that was waltz-like in its steady rhythm. The audience began to move as well, gently and rhythmically swaying in their seats in resonance and response to what they were hearing and seeing.

The effect was one of two seas, one of earth and one of the celestial luminaries moving as one. Hearts responding to the dance of Luna and Sol, and the gifts each bore and minds alight and inspired by the pure joy of this harmonious interaction. For those who were co-creators of this transformation, the space of the theater dropped away and the entirety of the Universe became the Ballroom of this dance. The scales rose higher into this vision and were slowly absorbed into the dark starlit night. Luna, still cloaked from sight, directed each step, each breath filled space of communion as the sounds of otherworldly instruments rose and fell like tidal waters.  Sol, was now held in Luna’s embrace and his light, having been absorbed by her became the sparkling of stars and far away planets that shared this tapestry of velvet night. In one final outpouring of moon tides new glow, Luna changed her garb and in the place of scales, the tail of the scorpion arose as beauty in this new darkness.

The curtain closed and Luna, now a sliver of light exposing her face and form, removed the veiling as her true form called into being a stage set and prepared to receive the waters of gnosis that would give birth to the Phoenix.
