Mother of the New Time…Full Moon worship at Baker Beach

Mother of the New Time

My tribe of priestesses began this powerful working in February of this year, and it continues until December. You can join us in this powerful working. Here’s how you do it. And there’s a Facebook group too.

Here’s the prayer, which I recited this morning at the water’s edge at Baker Beach.

I dance at the edge of the world
Like my ancestresses before me
I am a sacred vessel
My blood is indomitable
Cradling the now at my breast
Nurturing the future unfolding
There is nothing to fear
I am a Mother of the New Time

I made my prayer, anointed my stone, and did what I do—made ephemeral art.

How powerful, flowers from my garden, in sacred shapes on the beach, an offering to the Goddess, a prayer for the waters, for the women, for the planet. Except for the photos, this art won’t last the day. There’s magic in this, I believe.

What a powerful pair of days, from this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse to tomorrow’s Venus transit of the Sun.

There’s more magic afoot tomorrow. WaterSongLine groups are praying for the health of our waters all day tomorrow during the transit. Find a group near you on their website (click on the Prayer Locations tab), and go make powerful magic!

Love and light, yo.

I’m a barely tamed hippie, sage, seasoned, sarcastic (not all the time any more, but still). I’m a mom, a daughter, sister, a neighbor, and a friend. I’ve been on this meandering journey — like you, probably — seeking a better connection to and experience of peace, harmony, and fun in every bit of life. I’m single, quite good at it, and mostly love it. I’m here for the conversations I get to have with you, which these days center on exploring the mystery and beauty of life, work, health, aging, and creative expression.

    •  @GinaRafkind Yes, GIna, it’s so worth it! Even when it means getting up at 4something a.m. to do it! Glad you felt the magic through the photo.

    •  @LisaFLloyd Lisa, the triple spiral has been calling to me ever since I saw it on the entrance stone at Newgrange two years ago. And the yoni, well, that’s been sacred to me for a looooong time! 🙂
      Love and light,

      •  @MagnoliasWest Cool. I have a triskel pattern on my Celtic drum and I was going to say something about the yoni but it would have come out wrong lol

  1. This is so sacred. What a delicious offering to Goddess. I think when I am preparing for my next trip to the beach I will bring some of the buds from my veggie plants and make offering. Thanks for sharing this!

    •  @DTeaPriestess What a great idea! I love making offerings at the beach. So powerful…

  2. Beautiful! I love the prayer and the photos so much.
    I’ve never thought of beach drawings as ephemeral art! When I go this summer, I’ll make some of my own with that intention!

    • Carmen, I am thrilled that the images land in a deep way for you. Thanks so much for saying so!
      Love and light,


Chime in!
