You are the most illusive character of all! And the most pursued, tantalizing and delicious creature that you are! You are the soaring beingness that humans crave during this crucial paradigm leap. You are ultimate freedom – the ability to go where you want, to do what you want, to meet whom you want. Your sparkling essence reflects the overwhelming desire of the unknown to be known. You knew Andy Warhol intimately, didn’t you? He was the artist who became famous by creating icons out of exquisite corpses. Then he became one with you, didn’t he? Those fortunate to enter Andy’s gaze became famous and doomed for early death! Such a poisonous elixir you dispense with your pleasures, Fame, teaching us not to care about the here and now and pursue only you, who grants everlasting mortality with your golden touch.
Inspiration that touches all, Y is the grace that provides “aha” experiences along the path. You are the harbinger of the New, reaching down to deliver a new cosmology through earthly messengers.
So innocent, so vulnerable! You go forth into the fire that ejects you from the underworld where you are naked and underestimated. Your reflection in your husband’s eyeballs unleashes your newly awakened power.
Your hunger, your ravenous hunger. Others believed it to be sexual desire but in reality it was something more – a hunger for knowledge, the knowing of the unconscious, the pure instinct of the Great Below that could quench your thirst for fire!
The backbreaking work of attending to the bodies that arrive inert across the River Styx with coins in the mouth, all seeking your blessing before passing into the fire. The exaltation of this role as Underworld Queen, your identity veiled n other's reflections so that your own desires are hidden!"
How were you to know, sweetness, that your task would be to serve those charged with expressing this transition of humanity from one age to another, from an outworn linear conception of the world to a vibrant, fertile perspective of life as eternal and ever evolving!
You rascal, you! How you have deceived us all along! Didn’t you have us believe you were a planet, and now the truth is revealed! Only an asteroid! The Lord of Darkness, Underworld King, reduced now to mere Asteroid, not superior but equal to his family members – Persephone and Demeter.
For thousands of years you have wielded a charisma with your presence that threatened to undermine all that you loved, all that you believed that you loved, sacrificed to your hunger for power! You lusted after Persephone from afar until you finally pulled her into your realm, your land of fire and brimstone. In your struggle to absorb the light, you ended up sacrificing your dominion!
Long-suffering, possessive Demeter! You the giver of life who proves, with the disappearance of your Beloved Persephone, that life can also be taken away! The seeds can fail to take root, the roots can fail to grow, the stems may falter. So many terrible things can befall a living thing on its way to reaching its full potential. No one knows this better than Demeter, who keeps the planet green. Yet beware, through her holding back of natural growth, the Mother Goddess, can interrupt the chain of life, death and rebirth!
“Hail Inanna, Queen of Heaven & Earth!” the people cried. You the ancient goddess of Sumer, Oh Inanna, as clever as you are beautiful. You as the eager revolutionary upstart in your journey across the heavens as Morning Star transforming in the underworld to wise priestess in your Evening Star incarnation. You fertilize the land and its peoples for creative evolution in attunement with your perfectly symmetrical cycle through the cosmos.
Each time you emerge from the underworld you are born anew for your travels across the heavens. Your monthly encounters with the Moon are when you are at your most beautiful and recognizable Self. How they once worshipped you as the fiercely beautiful Love Goddess that you are! And they are worshipping you again for your independence, your courage, your activism -- your refusal to bend from your mission of spreading universal love through the universe! Hail Inanna, we follow you on your journey through the heavens to the Aquarian Age goddess who incorporates the opposites in her beingness!
MARY PERSEPHONE (Persephone born of Mary)
Visionary to the process that You are! Dispensing your wisdom like lilacs on the path of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, emerging to give birth to the New Sun. What divine grace you have! As midwife, you are universal woman giving birth to herself so that she may birth and nurture the New Sun, the Self, the icon of the hieros gamos guiding the Age of Aquarius
