goddess codes sessions
reclaim your story through astro-mythology
The Goddess is within you - there is no need to seek her outside of yourself. One of the ways to connect with Goddess energy is to explore the Goddess planetary bodies in your natal chart.
In astrology, the “feminine” is often limited to the Moon and Venus, which makes for a very unbalanced playing field in the astro psyche. When the first four asteroids of the asteroid belt were discovered in the 1800’s, each one was named after Greek & Roman Goddesses of antiquity.
Some astrologers began integrating the asteroid Goddesses in the 1970’s. This began to expand the feminine astro consciousness beyond motherhood and sexualized femininity, an important step in the 20th century.
Yet still, the stories attached to each of these Goddesses was and still is a patriarchal reshaping of their original narratives.
All of these Goddesses have multi-layered myths and stories. The top layer is made up of stories spun from the lens of the patriarchal paradigm, stories that you may be unconsciously enacting in your life. Yet beneath this top layer we find the bedrock of the Mother, the older myths which reveal the Goddess empowered and whole.
She has been driven underground for centuries. And, She is rising, ready to be remembered.
As women in the 21st century, we have the opportunity to examine the coding of these Goddess myths within our own psyches. This conscious unpacking, healing and integration of the fractured feminine allows you to move forward with awareness, dismantling your own inner patriarchy bit by bit.
THE TRANSFORMATIONAL PROCESS
Reclaim to reframe.
During out time together, we will examine how the patriarchal story for each Goddess is running in your system by deepening into the story she is telling in your natal chart. We will allow the richness of the matriarchal soil to infuse the Goddess with her origin story, widening the perspective of her role in your psyche.
Embody the reframe.
Journal prompts & daily practices between sessions will help you live into the energies of each Goddess. It’s important that your new knowledge moves from ideas to embodied experiences of change in your lived life.
Mend the fractured feminine.
As you reprogram your relationship to this aspect of the Goddess within you, you begin to heal parts of yourself that were broken/lost/damaged during your life. You will redefine your own definition of each Goddess archetype, directing her energy and expression in your life with awareness.
Dismantle the inner patriarchy.
Creating a paradigm beyond patriarchy is an inside job. As you integrate each Goddess archetype, your own experience of healing ripples into the collective. This will help to direct the evolution of women in the 21st century. Your self-empowerment empowers others.
DISCOVER THESE GODDESSES IN YOUR OWN CHART
Sessions build upon each other, layering each Goddess archetypes into your conscious awareness in a sequential process. I’ve connected each Goddess to a 7 year life cycle, at which time cultural programming “activates” the coding for the patriarchal versions of these Goddesses stories that are embedded in the modern psyche. Reflecting on these times in your life with curiosity & compassion will reveal how each Goddess energy moves through you now, and how you might like to shift your relationship to her.
SESSION 1: VENUS
Venus is stamped onto any body presenting as female at birth. During our first session we will investigate your earliest models and relationships to the feminine and your understanding of what it means to be a “girl” or “woman”.
SESSION TWO: PALLAS ATHENA
Pallas Athena is the key to your creative thinking, instinctual wisdom, and innate healing powers. What was your experience in childhood education? Were intuition and intellect held in equal value in your family?
SESSION THREE: VESTA
Vesta encompasses sexual energy, personal integration and a path of service. The virgin/whore archetype split shows up here, deeply impacting your developing relationship to your own libido and life force energy.
SESSION FOUR: JUNO
Often thought of as the Goddess of marriage, Juno demands balance and equality in relationships. Jealousy and competition are some of the distorted ways she is expressed in women.
SESSION FIVE: CERES
Ceres is about nurturing of creative projects, children included. She is connected to true nourishment, of the body and the earth’s body. Her cycles of loss often weave her story into the mother/daughter relationship.
SESSION SIX: YOUR GODDESS COUNCIL.
Discover how the Goddesses can work together to bring you more fulfillment in all aspects of your life. Create your own Goddess Council. You’ll also have the option to explore in a 6th asteroid Goddess of your choosing.
