The nurture of winter darkness
In Africa, I experienced the power of the full Moon in absence of urban light pollution. Enough illumination to reveal pathways while maintaining the mystery and magic of Night. A gentle light that nurtured a sense of enveloped connection to Creation.
The Moon embodies the Feminine Divine. Women full-bellied with child are as the full Moon. I think of Mary, weeks before giving birth, belly round and taut, glowing with Love.
The Moon is of the Night, apt for life and birth. Each of us was formed and gestated in the gentle dark full-Moon-like warmth of the womb, as are seeds that grow from the nurturing soil of the belly of Mother Earth.
These dark cold days as we draw close to the longest night may not seem the fertile season. Yet it is the cycle that precedes all visible manifestations of new life. It was evening before morning. Winter precedes spring. We are nourished in deep and ancient ways in the belly of darkness under the light of the Moon. I invite you to embrace this time. Turn your lights low, sit in the quiet darkness and listen for what is germinating deep within.
