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 changing...it 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 now...an 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
- Gateways and portals
- Transformation, healing and birth
- The creative, intuitive mind
