Who am I?

Who am I? That's a good question for am I really the same person that I was yesterday? Or will I be the same person tomorrow that I am today? Like our beloved Moon, I am forever may not be noticeable to family, friends...even myself, but each day I am a different person than I was the day before.

I am a wife, a mother, a pagan, a Druid, a counselor, a crone, a friend, an employee....I am no longer a daughter, and that saddens me because that is a part of my life that is over.

The Moon, the mighty Ocean, two entities forever entwined to each other. A transplanted country girl, I have lived in the city for over 30 years urban pagan. I may not have the access to the fields and forests that I had in my youth, but I have the Moon and the Ocean who have never left me. Unless you have experienced it, you will never know the powerful emotions that on midnight of a full moon standing before the great Ocean Mother can awaken. During my journey to discover and understand the worship of the Moon, I have uncovered a number of recurring themes.

  • Fertility (water/ocean, plants/forest0

  • Cycles of life and death

  • Creation

  • Gateways and portals

  • Transformation, healing and birth

  • The creative, intuitive mind

  1. Ha! I found you Mary and have added you to my Blog Reading List. This fantastic!! You have mastered the art of adding in pictures throughout your entry, something which took me weeks to figure out. I like the idea of an Urban Pagan blog - have you seen the book
    Pagan in the City?
