Love Letter from the Edge..
Here in California we wake today to an orange sky, predawn dusk, long after the sun has risen. It’s eerie and strange and beautiful. I’ve never spent a day outside in seemingly perpetual dusky darkness. My beloveds go to school and work, on their computers inside our home, and I take a candle and my doggo, and come here to my porch, to write by sulfuric light. Today feels weird. Everything slightly askew, like someone came into your house in the night and did some rearranging. It’s still your stuff, your life, but now everyone is wearing a mask, standing 6 feet apart and there is no sun in the dark orange sky. A bit upside down…..stranger things will happen.  
AND there is a gift in a day like this. The Goddess of Love archetype shares with us the gifts of Beauty and Intimacy through Presence. A day like today (where the usual pattern of our lives on autopilot has been interrupted) can tilt the snow globe world that is our mind enough to wake us up to this moment and be present. In the now moment there is such beauty, such intimacy.
So in the moment, I pick up my pencil and put it to paper to write, as I have forgotten “that I don’t like to write” and sit here happily scribbling away to you, my love. As far as I can tell, in any given moment we are making a choice between fear and love. We can choose to worry about the collapse of the ~old~ world. We can choose to worry about covid and smoke filled skies or we can choose to be in this moment, and this moment and this moment. In this moment my air is breathable, the smoke is high above. In this moment I am healthy. In this moment my garden is beautiful in the crazy, hazy, pumpkin cream light.  
I’m aware that in a moment of grief and despair, the feeling of loss can be so overwhelming….it can take our breath away.  
Can our courageous hearts make the choice to stay intimately with ourselves through that moment while they break with grief and race from fear?
To consciously choose is to be Sovereign.

The crows in our pepper tree agree, they say “WAKE! WAKE! WAKE!” These clever creatures seem to know that when we stop focusing on what we cannot control, we are left sitting in our own energy looking around at the life, the world we have created. The Goddess of Love requests that we take a BEAUTY INVENTORY please, and thank you. Rather than taking stock of all the things we perceive as ugly and wrong, let’s get present and intimate with what is beautiful in ourselves, our lives and those in our worlds in this moment. Because THIS is the portal of creation.  
As for what is truly wrong in the world, our clear and centered heart presence is what is needed and being called forth.
Rosa Mystica
“The alchemical principle associated with the archetype of the Goddess of Love is conjunctio: This gate reveals an entrance into the Mystery which only openness of heart can penetrate. Through union, conjunctio, one passes from the tongues of flame in-folded, into the crowned knot of fire ignited when the fire and the rose are one. (Rosa Mystica)”

13 Moon Oracle
This Virgo new moon is supportive of what we want to make real in our lives and what we want to focus on creating in the world.
May we create a more beautiful world, moment by moment.
May we honor the earth as she transforms, purifying with fire and smoke, circulating her waters above and below while her body shakes and her heart magnetizes electricity down from the sky. 
May we transform with her as we are not separate from this beautiful being, Gaia, who is our Mama, our home.

Fall Equinox Ceremony on Zoom Saturday September 19th Noon!!
As the world spins further and further into the collective Initiation of entering the Unknown, we have an even greater responsibility to honor the power we each carry to etherically hold space for the re-balancing that is happening in that process. That is, we will focus alchemically, etherically together on sending support to our Mother Gaia in the process She is engaged with in re-balancing at this POWERFUL ACUPUNCTURE POINT AT THE time of Fall Equinox on the planet. As we focus our attention on that planetary support, because we are One with Gaia, support will naturally be offered to our personal processes of re-balancing. Due to current circumstances, it will be necessary to meet on Zoom for this ceremony of re-balancing.
The Dream Weaver Circle
Do you dream vividly and garner guidance and support from your dreams? If so, consider joining Priest/ess’ from around the world in the Dream Weaver Circle to share and connect around dreams. We will hold a zoom call once a moon to look at and garner the wisdom from our personal and collective dreams. We will also set the patterning to connect etherically in Dream Temples. Our next Dream Weaver circle will be Friday, September 18th, 2020 at 10am. Pacific time.
Throughout all times, Priest/ess’ have been sensitive receptors for the Greater Divine Dream, dreaming itself through us. They have functioned as oracles seeing into the non-linear matrix of time and space, as sensitive instruments aware of a broader spectrum of quantum possibilities manifesting. They have been messengers for the archetypal realms who interface and seed divine, creative possibilities through the non-linear nature of dreams. For the collective community, oftentimes they were harbingers of events providing an immediate opportunity to act on the messages delivered from higher realms. It is for all these reasons, that we gather as a Dream Weaver Circle. If, as an aspect of your Priest/esshood, you perceive of yourself as a conscious Dreamer in these reflections, then join us in service, by submitting dreams that have this mythic, collective, archetypal and transpersonal quality. 
 This Dream Weaver’s circle focuses on dreams that are archetypal and mytho-poetic in nature. It is the intention of this offering to look for the larger patterns in the collective Dreamfield that are emerging through the lens of the conscious dreaming of the priest/esses in the circle. As well, themes can be suggested for our conscious dreaming of reality, that can and do affect the collective Dreamfield matrix.
   It is not the intention of this circle to analyze or necessarily even to respond to the dreams, as each recipient will garner his/her own wisdom, inspiration and gifts from sharing a given dream. However, if you choose to respond by lucidly entering the Dreamtime to share and commune telepathically, that is certainly being encouraged!
Please enjoy going to have a look at the new Dream Weaver offering on the Sanctuary website, where you can post dreams, make comments and find the schedule for our once a moon zoom call Dream Weaver circles! Click HERE!

Devotional Service Opportunity: Please Help Us Nurture Our Garden on Facebook!

On the next episode of a modern priestess:
In this short and sweet episode, my guest Erika Czerwinski, goes straight to the heart of the matter as the archetype of the Goddess of Love
Initially, it was an archetype she didn’t feel that she knew well, but as she states, the Goddess of Love is about using body mind and spirit together, and that she does.
Dr. Erika maintains a clinical psychology practice working with couples and individuals. She leads ceremony as an initiated priestess and specializes in walking people through the wilderness of the mind and soul. She is devoted to reconnecting people with their divine nature 
so they may live the truth of who they are.

I’m so excited to share this episode with you.

A Personal Invitation from Ariel
Dear Ones…
Drink from Her Well is a direct demonstration and training for how to work with collective alchemy! It means so much for the collective awakening, that we hold these alchemical circles, both physically and etherically, beyond ego mind and in Divine Love’s name. It is so critical now, that the Divine Feminine rise in alignment and integrity with the most expanded viewpoint of what is being asked of us at this intense time of planetary transformation. 
Please join us for the next Drink from Her Well!
In Her Name,

Follow us on Instagram!
Every day, I, (Ariel Spilsbury) am offering a beautiful, evocative image with a few inspiring words that create a DAILY IMAGE ORACLE meditation that comes to you via Instagram each day! Each of these images is worthy of a full meditation/contemplation, and added to the image are richly layered words that further illuminate and bring life and deeper meaning to the image. Consider each oracle as if it were specifically chosen for you. This may appear to be a transpersonal revelation, but the truth is, your personal transformation affects all others in the hologram. We are all drops of the same ocean.
Enjoy this new service from The Sanctuary of the Open Heart!
