Reclaiming the Goddess of the Sun
by Stephanie Woodfield

Llewellyn.com - May 2014

In Paganism, we like to say that we have reclaimed the Goddess. But have we really? Truly reclaiming the Goddess doesn't simply mean acknowledging the existence of the divine feminine, it also requires us to explore all of Her archetypes, and to reevaluate our concepts of femininity.

Llewellyn.com - Author Interview - May 2014

by Llewellyn

1. Your new book, Drawing Down the Sun, focuses on reclaiming the lost archetype of the solar feminine. What inspired the idea for this book?

Surprisingly enough, the Dark Goddess in a way inspired me to learn about sun goddesses. In my work with the Morrigan I had come across references to Macha, one of the aspects of the Morrigan, being called the "sun of womanhood." The connection between the sun and a female figure was so against the norm I was used to. Later when I began working with the goddess Brigid I noticed she had a strong connection not only to fire but the sun. The more I researched, the more I found that solar goddesses were not an anomaly—they were actually just as common as lunar goddesses.

The Mystical Cats Tarot
by Barbara Moore

Cats are a popular theme for tarot and oracle decks, and for good reason. For centuries cats have been associated with religion, spirituality, and mysticism. Today, cats are much loved, as companions and as symbols of independence and a lack of concern for the opinions of others. We fancy that this spirit is born of an inner confidence that knows exactly what it wants and the best ways to achieve while maintaining a sense of nobility. In many ways, cats are metaphoric role models. Here, tarot expert Barbara Moore discusses the "purr-ks" of using the Mystical Cats Tarot.
