Wheel of the Year

Equinox and Alchemy

This month’s lunar theme was inspired by the wisdom and energies of The Sorceress, our companion for the September Equinox, and our focus in this month’s lesson in our “13 Moons, 13 Goddesses” course.

The Sorceress embodies transformation and alchemy, especially at this time of shifting elements: Earth to Air in the Southern Hemisphere, and Fire to Water in the Northern Hemisphere.

More importantly, she guides us in our own alchemical transformation as we seed our own rebirth.

As we approach the Equinox — a point of balance of light and dark around the Earth — consider how Alchemy supports that finding of balance.

Someone suggested to me that creating balance is an impossible task. He asked, “How can we humans have perfect balance when the Earth itself achieves it only twice a year?”

That may be true… but are we looking for perfection? For absolutes?

Perhaps we are looking for agility… learning to dance with the energy of our souls… to waltz and whirl with the energy of the Sun, the Moon and the Earth as their (and our) energies flow from Yin and Yang, from Yang to Yin…

Nothing is static, everything changes, transforms… Alchemy at work!

These shifting energetic states teach us how to adapt, how to flow, how to experience the world in different ways… and how to accept all of these as natural, neither good nor bad, but just as they are.

And each allows us to delve into our Sacred Contract with our Self… to manifest it in light and shadow, rising and falling, Yin and Yang, Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine…

Know YOU, Be YOU, in all your varied energetic states… Expanding, contracting, at rest, in balance… changing and transforming but always connected to Self.

That, to me, is Harmony and Balance supported by alchemical transformation. It’s your Superpower!

In the words of poet Nayyirah Waheed (from “Nejma”),

the truth is
you were born for you.
you were wanted by you.
you came for you.
you are here for you.
your existence is yours.
yes.

Yes!
