I have added an update at the end of this post. Scroll down to the end or re-read my tale and you will find where the wheel of time landed:
WordPress really motivated me this week, first with this weekly challenge and then a few days later with the daily prompt. Well I guess it is about time! Now how do you like that for irony? Anyone who knows my writing is aware that like most astrologers , I am obsessed with time and cycles. So it has been a real treat to focus on one of my favorite obsessions.
With this challenge we are invited to enter a time machine and go wherever we like. Now we are talking ! So this is what I am going to do. I will let you eavesdrop on a conversation and show you some pictures of my destination and time period. Then you can guess where my time machine landed. Use your imagination and watch it soar as I give you a glimpse into my soul’s desire……
I am ready to meet with Elder Astria now. I know we will speak of my mate. I saw him in my dream, my partner for this cycle. He is strong and kind and perfect to complement my soul’s journey. Tall and dark and wise as he rides with Tiger.
But I wonder about my role in the collective. How will I add to my community? What role has Spirit chosen for me? I am so excited to discover my path. Astria has just summoned me telepathically. I will join her by the creek.
“Divine one, I am ready to meet the man who Tiger chose for me. I found him in last night’s dream.”
” Yes my dear litebeing, you are correct. Tiger chose well and you will be reunited in tonight’s ceremony. So now let us talk about your passion for service. What will you be bringing to our community?”
” Dear Astria, I have been blessed with many gifts. I sing, I draw, I laugh, I see light everywhere… and I am happy to grow and learn how to best help our people.”
” Yes litebeing, there is much work to be done here. You will use your gifts in many ways. Your apprenticeship will begin after the next New Moon. You will learn how to draw and paint with light. You will also join the laughter choir where music is made with glee.”
” Oh Astria, I am so pleased to begin my work for this cycle and enter into the apprenticeship. How do I prepare for this new passage?”
” Well litebeing, there are many paths that lead to the same road, you know this already. The dream circle will assist you well here and consultations with Joseph the herbalist is another route. Pray on it and then let tonight’s ceremony reveal some of the answers you seek.”
” And do not forget about guidance from Tiger and the deux White Horses!”
The ceremony is about to begin. I can sense my partner before he makes his way towards the fire.His light is brilliant and I see it dance in my mind’s eye The drumming begins lightly and picks up momentum as the full moon makes its ascent. The air is crackling with electricity as the dancing begins. All of my kin band together and hold hands as we make our way into the circle. I take a strong inhalation as the drum beats align with my heart. I am on my way , leaving youth behind to help pave the way for my generation to lead my tribe. Joy is upon me.

UPDATE: This place and time cannot be located on a map or a calendar. It cannot be googled or documented online. It does exist outside of time and space. I went within and held my vision of Utopia. The images I selected here were a representation of artists, writers, and visionaries over time. You could say it is a return to The Garden before the fall, before the separation, before the negation of the Divine Feminine. It is a probability and it exists in my heart.
