Happy Mother’s Day to all the women who are Goddesses who birthed everyone who has ever incarnated.
I give thanks to all the mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers and all the mothers throughout time who gave birth to all the children of the earth. We are all children of the Great Mother. I give thanks to my mother Fay Cantor who birthed me and to my grandmother, her mother, Dina Geitl Sandpearl. My mom loved me unconditionally. She passed on September 18, 2009 on a Holy day.
This is a day to honor the Divine Feminine and all the Goddesses. Every religion has a Mother Goddess somewhere in the world. Isis, Astarte, Inanna, Nuit, Pachamama, Mother MARY, The Black Madonna, Demeter, Ceres, Anu, Freya, Shekinah, Durga, Coatlicue, Shakti, Sheela Na Gig, Gayatri, Spider Woman, Kunapipi, She has thousands of names.
Aztec Goddess Coatlicue Great Mother by J. B. Grien 1500’s
. Each and every mother is a living Mother Goddess. She is the natural and primordial mother of all creation. We are all born of mothers, first and foremost she is the ground of our being. We, in fact, are our mothers and grandmothers, physically, we were eggs in our mothers’ fallopian tubes when she was born from her mother. We actually carry all the memories of our grandmothers and mothers all of their experience is written in our own cells.
In the Tarot the Mother is the EMPRESS #3
The earth is our collective Mother as well. On this day Bless the earth, Make offerings to her. Give her water, feed her, lay on her. thank her for so generously feeding her children and all the creatures on earth.
On an Astrological level the Moon symbolizing the Divine Feminine is in earthy Capricorn which was originally the sign of the Great Mother. Ruled by Saturn which represents the physical plane, That’s what our mothers do.

Even if your mom wasn’t there for you physically or emotionally remember that she did give you life. She sacrificed herself to birth you. Even if she isn’t or wasn’t perfect, even if she was abusive, or narcissistic, or mentally ill or an addict. She is still your mother. You can also connect to the Great Divine Mother for unconditional love. Catholics worship Her as Mother Mary. They call her the Shekina in Hebrew and she comes to earth every Friday night at Sundown to be on earth with her children. The Divine Mother will love you as no human mother can. The patriarchal world still puts The Divine Mother down. But that time is over. Honor your mother and honor yourself, Honor the gift of your life.
When I gave birth to my son Elijah, now almost 34 years ago at home, during the last hour of a 36-hour labor, I had a transcendent connection to every mother who had every been in labor and who had passed through this dangerous risk of losing her life or her child’s. I was initiated into the millions and billions of mothers at that moment. I was different I was changed by this singular experience.
I am grateful for my two beautiful children, my son Elijah and my daughter Leah. They also chose me to be their mother. We all choose our parents from the souls perspective to work out the issues our souls choose to tackle in each lifetime. So no matter how bitter or resentful or hardened or cynical you may feel about your mother, she is still the one person you will have the most intimate relationship with in your entire life. That intimacy that bliss state, is stored in your cellular memories. You can connect with that state through meditation, hypnosis or flotation tanks.
Have a joyous Mother’s Day. It’s good to honor Mom but really every day should be the day to honor the Mothering Principle and Mother Earth.
