Making Peace with the Dark Goddess And the Ascent Journey

Cayelin_April_2016by Cayelin K Castell

On February 19, 2018 Venus rises from the Underworld as the Aries Wild Warrior Woman Meta-Goddess to begin the process of reclaiming her true self, having released all the distortions she had previously collected on her journey to the underworld.

Venus/Inanna/Aries is now a fully initiated Goddess having gone through a shamanic death that required her to die to who she believed herself to be so she could be reborn into who she truly is as the Self-Sufficient, Confident, Fierce Protector of the Cosmic Balance, committed to restoring Divine Justice where ever needed. If we have been paying attention to this journey this is true for us all. Read More

What Does the Aries Wild Woman Really Want?

I came across a children’s story by Gwen Gross in a book titled Knights of the Round Table when my youngest son was in third grade. He is now age 27 so this was many years ago. We both loved the story and I found it was a wonderful description of what the Aries Wild Woman wants most…actually it fits in many ways for most women but most especially the Aries Wild Woman.
I, of course, related to it right away being Venus in Aries myself. As the story describes she might want to experience some of these things as explained below, but what she really wants is NOT primarily beauty, love, wisdom, significant other, children, riches, adventure, or truth.
More importantly if she doesn’t have what she really wants she can not fully be her true self. I love the wisdom found in this story and I hope you will too!

In this story King Arthur and Sir Gawain encounter “Sir Malger of the Deadly Axe.” Sir Malger challenges King Arthur with a riddle. Arthur’s life depends upon him discovering the correct answer to this question, “What is it that women want most?”

Arthur has seven days to find the answer, so he and Gawain spend this time asking every woman they meet what they want most. The answers they receive are varied including beauty, love, wisdom, a partner, children, riches, adventure, and truth. Somehow Arthur knows none of these are the correct answer to the riddle.

The Alchemy of Venus: Attuning to the Goddess Changes Everything

As a Shamanic Astrologer and Active Dreamer I see that life takes on greater vibrancy and congruence when lived as a “Call and Response” game. We hear Great Mystery calling to us through our dreams and visions, synchronicity and coincidence, and the movements of the Earth, Sun, Moon, Planets and Stars. Read More
