This is the integrated, balanced and whole image of the Goddess. She is that whom resolves duality in her primary being-ness. She encompasses all duality pairs in a sweepingly expansive unified field of consciousness which is all things yet no thing. With her, unneeded parts and masks of self are sloughed off, as well as the life of sleeping consciousness.
Alchemy is the raising of vibration. All that we do in the process of spiritual evolution has to do with raising the vibration; this is the work of the Alchemical Goddess. Her transcendent function in the Mystery is the marriage of male and female polarities within; a complete awakening in unity.
The gateway to the Alchemical Goddess is through ecstasy. That does not mean that you do not experience what appears to be suffering in your life. It means you have a choice about how you interpret what happens to you…accepting, without exception, the perfection of every unfolding moment as part of the ever-changing flow of life.

As we enter into the moon of June and the turn of the wheel to Summer Solstice 2012, we enter into a time of the New Sun, the Sun that is no longer seen as masculine in it’s nature. We now enter into a time when the Sun of Flowers is being born.The Flowering Sun is born in the Heart. A Female Sun.
In archaic times, people perceived the sun, in its shining prime and glory, the giver of heat and light and life, to be the effulgent force of the female. A passionate aspect of the great mother, the versatile ‘jill-of-all-trades’, who issues forth and supports whole life. She is the heaven Illuminating goddess, Amaterasu Omikame in Japan and the queen of heaven and Earth, Arinna in Mesopotamia. She was Yhi, sun woman, to the Arunta of Australia. Sun sister in Anatolia, Siberia and Native America.
The goddess was not always the sun herself, but often the force behind it; the grand controller of the cosmos, the sun, and the celestial cycles. According to Greek mythology, Leto laid an egg that produced two offspring, the sun and the moon, Apollo and Artemis. The Egyptian Goddess, Hathor, hatched the “golden egg of the sun” at the dawn of creation. The sun god, Osiris-Ra, died each night to return to the womb of the great mother, from whose “gate” he was reborn each morning. The same is said of the Maori sun god, who must descend into the uterine cave of the Waters of Life in order to be regenerated daily.
With the advent of the patriarchy, the sun underwent a sex change. Profound, this gender shift was a portrayal of the left brain revolution, the ascendance of ration over passion. Female divinity was overthrown, overthrone, overgrown. Her domain plundered, her authority usurped, her worship polluted. The sun, with the strength of its brilliance, it’s sheer presence and potency, came to stand for the masculine principal, the power of rational thinking. The moon, reflective, more subtle and seemingly erratic, came to be associated with the feminine in most cultures. Although the traits of the sun are thought to be male, it retains its female designation in the languages of Northern Europe, Arabia and Japan.
In Mesopotamian mythology, the Hittite sun goddess, Estan, evolved into Istanu, a male sun god. In pre-Islamic Arabia, the sun goddess was known as Torch of the Gods, Atthar or Al-llat. She was honored daily by pouring libations at roof top altars. Her name was subsequently masculinized to Allah. Her other name, Shams, along with her attributes became associated with a male sun god, Shams-On. The Babylonian sun god was Shamash, clearly related to the Hebrew word for sun, as well as the appellation of the biblical character Samson, were also derived from her name.

We have just moved through the solar eclipse of May 20, which was a powerful male solar eclipse, to be followed on June 4th by a lunar eclipse preceding the Venus Transit on June 5. Some are calling this the portal of transcendence. We are entering into a time of a greater reality. A time when when we can burst free from old patterns and beliefs that keep us in 3D duality. The portal of transcendence is the secret doorway you have long sought, the stargate through which new worlds are seeded.
Open now in ecstatic communion with the rapture and grace of unconditional love. Awaken to the joyful celebration in this realm where there is only love!
In this last eclipse the sun, moon, and the Pleiades, (which the Egyptians see as a female goddess, most often recognized as the Divine Mother or Hathor) activated an energetic seed in the womb of the Milky Way. This is lining up to be a potent entry into the new, a time that is beyond gender. We are aligning with the heart of Great Central Sun that is rising in everyone.
We are in a powerful time of Alchemy that is lifting the vibration of the planet to a new octave of harmony, balance, and union… Oneness! To heaven on Earth!
Our joy, our ecstasy, are the frequent flier extra miles that lift and align us to the grand design of our souls destiny returning home to Oneness.
As we prepare for this Summer Solstice look and see what is still creating resistance, rigidity, fixity, all the ways the rational, linear, left-brain still wants to control. Dissolve all lines of separation; enter into the unified mind of the Divine. Tune in to station ECSTASY and play the tunes that light up the D.N.A. (Divine Natural Alignment) and shift into a higher frequency of fun in the sun as we shift from one way of being to another. Create alchemy, turn the leaden mind of lower consciousness into the Golden Illuminated Mind.
Awaken and Remember, Children of the Sun, the holy innocent divine child, child of the cosmos, we are here to be the new Christ child that is not a man or a woman, solar androgyny are We.
The inner marriage is complete the feast of Agape is Here and Now. Celebrate the Light within, Radiate Love, Ecstatically! Ecstasy is your natural frequency and state of being.
Now go out and be the Sun and Shine on everyone!
I AM the Alchemical Goddess of Ecstasy! “I am freedom. I am grace. I am union.” I am you, you are me, and we are one in the Sun!
