This moon cycle has been much awaited, much talked about and much hypothesized. Having had not much interest in apocolyptic prophesy I was surprised of what arose within me as a sharing from the collective unconscious in the form of a dream. The archetypal Snake woman….telling tales of the Minoan snake priestess, Lilith, Ixchel, Madonna, Nehebka, The Pythia ….and many more. All these Goddesses express the energy of transformation and rebirth . A strong connection to the Mayan culture and I was reminded by a friend that the Chinese New Year starts on February 4th and is in the sign of the Black water snake.
