Making Light of the Dark

IT WAS WOMEN – “It was not witches who burned.

It was women.

Women who were seen as

Too beautiful

Too outspoken

Had too much water in the well (yes, seriously)

Who had a birthmark

Women who were too skilled with herbal medicine

Too loud

Too quiet

Too much red in her hair

Women who had a strong nature connection

Women who danced

Women who sung

or anything else, really.


Sisters testified and turned on each other when their babies were held under ice.

Children were tortured to confess their experiences with “witches” by being fake executed in ovens.

Women were held under water and if they float, they were guilty and executed.

If they sunk and drowned they were innocent.

Women were thrown off cliffs.

Women were put in deep holes in the ground.

The start of this madness was years of famine, war between religions and lots of fear. The churches said that witches, demons and the devil did exist and women were nothing but trouble. As we see even today, there is often a scapegoat created, and the chaos escalated in Sweden when the Bible became law and everything that did not line up with what the church said became lethal. The Bible fanaticism killed thousands of women.

Everything connected to a women became feared, especially her sexuality. It became labeled as dark and dangerous and was the core of the witch trials through out the world.

Why do I write this?

Because I think the usage of words are important, especially when we are doing the work to pull these murky, repressed and forgotten about stories to the surface. Because knowing our history is important when we are building the new world. When we are doing the healing work of our lineages and as women. To give the women who were slaughtered a voice, to give them redress and a chance of peace.

It was not witches who burned.

It was women.”~

MY STORY: Horror of Family Court, Religion & Burning Witches


Dark Goddess

Hekate is often depicted as a powerful witch or singularly a Dark Goddess, but her truth lies far deeper. She bears the wisdom which leads us out of the darkness and into the light of new life, and is a divine personification of heavenly magic. She is the part of you that helps you to find your way.. Hekate reveals everything she touches.

In astrology, Hekate – an asteroid goddess – reveals transformation and what it will take for us to get there. Hekate stands and leads you to your ‘chosen’ path. As a liminal Goddess, her energies influence your life direction into one suitable for your spiritual stage of growth, and for gaining wisdom. Hekate rules over those places and times that are between. Midnight and twilight, doorways, crossroads and stairways, birth and death. Hekate is there in the place of no place and time of no time. Her magic is drawn from the moment between breaths and between heartbeats. She resides comfortably in the Underworld, but it’s more complex than a shadow side, which sounds like Lilith or Waldemath. Hekate was very levelheaded, practical and reliable, and not blind in the slightest. Her representing the crossroads the tng9ble example of her liminal nature and It adds an ambiguous element to her nature – not unlike a 12th house influence. And yet the crossroads is a place of enormous power reserve in witchcraft. So with this, the hypothesis is that when she’s prominent in a chart, the native will possess this same kind of energy – powerful and efficient when conscious, and dangerous, stuck in the crossroads; susceptible to evil; and easily led down the wrong path, when unaware.

The sign Hekate is in determines what what we need to do to discern our direction in life; the natal house Hekate occupies can show where we go to find those parts of ourselves that were lost

Where she manifests in your chart reveals aspects of her energies in your path. Hekate prominent in a birthchart will be found in those who have natural magical talent, or are drawn to witchcraft, divination, the Cthonic arts and midwifery. In the psyche, Hekate represents the boundaries between the known and unknown. With her torches she throws light on our shadows so that we can see them clearly. The house where one finds Hekate could be the area one often seeks counsel or they may find this area defines which major life-changing turning they take. Hekate In the 10th house, and you may serve as the wisdom and counsel for others.

Asteroid Goddesses reveal how the Divine Feminine manifests in our lives – which is why I (She Who Is) am offering “The Goddess Report”, THIS WEEKEND (August 12-16, 2022) weekend at a price that YOU choose. I believe deeply that every woman – regardless of circumstance – should have access to the power of these tangible influences in our psyches and spiritual paths and oaths.
