Welcoming in a New Year as the New Moon passes through the turning feels especially divine and auspicious.  This past year has seen a great many changes both personally and collectively. Fire of the Goddess is ready to take our next leap into offering the tools and resources to ignite the flame of passion and change in our hearts as we ring in 2014. This particular New Year, we witness a New Moon.  In the ancient Goddess traditions which honor the divine feminine, the New Moon is a time to let go of the old, shedding our skins, burning up what no longer serves us to make way for the new. The Fire of the Goddess is the active creative power that resides within the divine feminine.  Fire is symbolic of spirit and light embodied and contains within its essence the power to transmute, transform, to burn away the old and make room for the new.  As I prepare to make ceremony and connect with my loving community on the Big Island of Hawaii, I also sit in remembrance of what it means to honor the fire, light and dance of the Fire of the Goddess.  That by celebrating the divine feminine is the work of the Fire of the Goddess, to reclaim our right to view the feminine as sacred.  The New Year is also the time to gather with friends and family, to set intention and clarify once again what is most important to our hearts and life journeys.  As we bring in 2014, we can each ask ourselves what is it the sacred fire that burns in our own hearts?  What will we do this year to benefit others?  It is my prayer that we are each able to access our inner divine selves, bring them out into the light to share with others. Happy New Year!
