International Women’s Day, I’m a proud Feminist

This was how I became a conscious Feminist. It was in a Grade 11 Art History Class when I first saw this statue of the Cretan Snake Goddess that I felt I was literally struck by lightning and awoke! I saw her again. I remembered who I was and the Great Goddess and how I had worshipped Her and how all women were Goddesses. This was my trail to becoming a Feminist. I was hurt and angry to  see how women were now denigrated, feared and stamped on by men. I saw women cowering in fear, powerless as they were portrayed as second class, and meant to feel dumb, stupid and unimportant.

 I was a tomboy as a kid. I was difficult, I refused to behave and co-operate about almost everything that my poor mother, may she rest in peace, tried to get me to fall into line with about being Feminine. I was wild, unruly. I fought, I was outrageous. My nickname was “witch” at public school.

I always knew I had been a High Priestess and honored for being a woman. I became a feminist at a very young age, before I knew the word or its meaning. I just knew at 11, when I experienced my first  that  my wonderful life as I had known it,of being totally free and equal to the boys was over and I was immediately a second class citizen. That made me so angry.

The Birth Control Pill brought women’s liberation into the culture more than anything else. Women were burning their bras. I heard of and read writers-Virgin Wolf, Sylvia Plath, Betty Friedan, Gloria Steinem and then in my 20’s I discovered women artists- Georgia O’Keefe, photographer Dianne Arbus, Frida Kahlo and Judy Chicago who totally inspired me.

At O.C.A. there was a Women’s Feminism Course which I attended and I was part of the first Women’s Art group and show at OCA{D}  in 1972. Many of my art works were smashed and disappeared as they were considered dangerous, too erotic and insulting to some people. 

My heart still breaks every time I hear of women being tortured through genital mutilation in the Muslim religion. There are millions of women living without a clitoris. Or Chinese female babies being tossed into the garbage. Indian women aborting female fetus because girls are useless. Women sold as sex-slaves. Breastfeeding being still considered taboo or offensive. The wholesale brainwashing and programming of women to now accept and to desire being sexual abused, through violence labeled as erotic, freeing, “liberated” and being connected to love as in 50 shades of Grey. “Please torture, abase and violate me more, I love it when you hurt me.”-this keeps women even more enslaved than ever. The list goes on and on.

The Dalai Lama said “The world will be saved by the western woman.” Wow.

The changing of our present denigrated male female relationships into balance will take ALCHEMY. 

We must empathize and know that each of us has both with us. We must  become the “other.”

What do you think about Feminism?

A little Astrology for IWD

Moon is in Libra on International Women’s day – really time to balance out sexual  relationships

Moon quincunx’s Chiron-

time to wake up and feel how shocking it is that women are still 2nd class citizens, disempowered in so many ways.

The moon quincunx the SUN-

the Feminine and the Masculine Sun really don’t see eye to eye

Moon opposes Venus   –bringing in powerful Female Strength energy

Moon trines Mercury in Aquarius

which is where we do create a world of equality between men and women.

I will be doing ceremony March 8 from 4:00 pm- 5:00 pm at the Sacred Arts Centre for the benefit of the women of the world and the men too. Please tune in by meditating on the image of this snake Goddess. She symbolizes both women’s power, transformation and the snakes in her upraised arms symbolize transformational kundalini magical powers for the masculine and feminine.

MEDITATE and repeat the mantra I am the Goddess.- play video and Listen to song below.

Ask what you can do to help other women and yourself to become fully liberated and mepowered..
