With Mars in retrograde for the last 7 weeks or so, I have been drawn to reflect upon the strength and beauty of the feminine energy in my life. With the strong male ego suppressed, it has opened the door to giving thanks and celebrating the women in my life and my own inner goddess. It is the women in our lives that guide us to the portals of love, compassion, and empathy.
Women are clearly some of the most incredibly beautiful forces in our world. They are the givers of life, comfort in the storms, and call forth the very best in us. Unlike some of the dated notions of women as weak and emotional, I have found the women in my life to be rocks of strength, perseverance, and determination. At the same time, they call forth grace and love in the midst of great challenge. Most of the women in my life are far stronger than men who rely upon superficial and false images driven by ego and power. While I have some incredibly strong and sensitive men in my life (and I’m truly blessed by them), our world has grown to value raw power over the power of love all too often.
It’s truly unfortunate that our society undervalues women as much as it does. Statistics repeatedly show that the formative years of young girls determines to a large extent their self-confidence as they mature into women. Women are judged more for their appearance than their true essence and it often takes years before they blossom into their authentic inner beauty and power – if they ever do.
I am always in awe of the inner beauty that women possess and so often selflessly share. Despite the objectification that our society often pushes forth, true womanhood stands as guardians protecting our world from destruction. The goddess within shines forth as a warrior queen ready to defend the weak, comfort those in pain, and call forth the divine in each of us. When God created woman, he combined into her the purity of love with the strength of Zeus.
When I reflect upon the women in my own life, they are each pillars of strength simultaneously challenging me to elevate and openly share from my heart. They remind me to maintain contact with my emotions and intuition. Women are the essence of the power embodied in the yin/yang for they represent the balance of power and compassion.
As Mars prepares to go direct in another week, now is a great time to reflect upon the inner feminine and to reach deep into the power it possesses. Like the Empress card of Tarot, women represent life, fertility, and grace without compromise. So celebrate the women in your life and give thanks to them. There is no more perfect example of God’s unconditional love and power than the heart of a women.
