Hekate, Great Goddess of the Crossroads, Queen of witches and sorcery! She who rules the sky, sea, and earth. She who protects and blesses! Look upon your daughter and show her the way. Send her your blessings and your wisdom.
She recently became Hierophant, or High Priestess, to the Goddess Hekate. For many years she has been studying, learning, and worshiping in the Old Way. With her new title, she has reached a major spiritual goal and is surprised to feel…. let down. What comes next? What new heights can she climb when she is already on the top? In a very real and practical sense – what comes next? Does she teach? Write? Create something beautiful and magical? She’s supposed to feel empowered and inspired. So why does she feel stuck in a rut?
Black Moonstone is sacred to Hekate and those who follow her. It whispers of New Beginnings, magic, and feminine power. It reminds us that life follows a natural rhythm, a rise and a fall, of light and dark, two sides of the same coin. The dark days are not to be cursed. They are a chance for healing and learning, an opportunity to slow down, to rest and just BE. Black Moonstone encourages us to sit in non-judgement with ourselves and accept “what is”, and from that holy place, see the way forward. It invites us to think before we act and to take time to process and reflect. It asks us to trust ourselves, our wild intuitive knowing, and Our Lady. To know that there is a Divine Timing at play and that everything is unfolding as it should.

Black Moonstone is uniquely suited to exploring the subconscious and for shadow work. It is highly recommended for feminists and for healing wounds caused by toxic patriarchal systems. […]
