Full Moon in Sagittarius

Magic Moon – Digital painting

Tonight the full moon is in Sagittarius and I hope the clouds clear away enough to catch a glimpse of the moon.

It’ been raining all day and I have been catching up on some work which needed to be done asap.  I did find some spare time to whip out a small digital painting and it has been posted on my art blog.

Now it’s time to put on my Domestic Goddess hat and make dinner!

quotes for the day;

“If you can see your path laid out
in front of you step by step, you know
it’s not your path. Your own path you
make with every step you take. That’s
why it’s your path.” – Joseph Campbell

” When you see the earth from the moon, you don’t see any divisions there of nations or states. This might be the symbol, really, for the new mythology to come. That is the country that we are going to be celebrating. And those are the people that we are one with.” – Joseph Campbell


Everyday Goddessing is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us. – Rose Arizmendi

My Dear Friend & Me

To me, sharing a cup of tea or coffee with friends means warmth, comfort and great conversation.

Yesterday I had coffee with Elvira  and our conversation was mostly about friendship, everyday goddessing and sacred woo-woo. We had such a great time even though the weather was overcast and chilly. Next time,  I have to try the french toast extravaganza that Elvira had. Yummy!

This morning over tea with another friend, our conversation turned to the economy, the environment and the planet’s diminishing water supply. We also shared our  family stories, goals and hopes for the near future.

“Let us sit my friend and share a cup of tea
And talk of our dreams and the faraway places we want to see.
Let us dream together and explore all of life’s mysteries.
Just the two of us
my dear friend and me.” – Rose Arizmendi

Global Prayer Effort

Today,  I received an email from the beautiful goddess Salina about the global effort being made to help heal the living waters of our planet. Mother Gaia needs all the help she can receive because there is so much going on in the world right now, especially with the unfortunate oil spill in the Gulf and the pollution from Iceland’s volcano.

A Mother’s Day Message

On Mothers Day, I received a beautiful phone message from a dear friend and it was so heartfelt and nurturing it made me cry. It made me realize how different our lives could be if everyone received a message like this on a daily basis or even weekly. … How about a great big phone hug or email hug a day?

In all of us there is a deep human need to be recognized, nurtured and loved for who we are. It doesn’t matter how successful, self confident or self aware we are, we all need a little love and nurturing at times. Like the song says,  “All we need is Love!”

So today, I made a few phone calls and sent a couple of emails to some really beautiful, soulful people in my life whom I thought might need a little unconditional love, understanding and positive energy .

My promise to myself is to make every effort to spend more time communicating with those I love and care about, who are important to me, who enrich my life and nurture my goddess within.

P.S. My heart fills up with love and gratitude when I think of all you beautiful everyday goddesses who share your stories, wisdom, laughter, joy, creativity and inspiration with me on a daily basis. I want to say thank you so much for your support and feedback.

Everyday Goddessing is about sharing magical techniques and sacred wisdom with other beautiful Goddess women. I believe that within every woman there is a goddess, a wise woman, beautiful, creative, powerful, with a deep soul, and that everything we need and are looking for is already inside  each of us. – Rose Arizmendi
