Goddesses, Matriarchs or Grandmothers – forces of nature.
They care for us, and we also need to care for them. I reckon we need to feel deeply connected with Mother Nature if we are to find a good way through this climate emergency. I often hear people say Mother Nature is angry with us and wants to scrape us off because we’re so bad. I can’t see how our mother would want to get rid of us, her children. I believe nature is good, wise and beautiful, and as her children we inherit that wise nature. These grandmothers I made speak of the wisdom and caring of Mother Nature.
She cares for the fire in our hearts, and helps that not to get in a big conflagration. She works to balance to give us a sense that the fire in our hearts can be joyous.
Night shadow is internal night as well as external: the realm of dreams and despair. With climate emergency we need to embrace that, feel it as a force that cares for us. This goddess cares for the dark in our emotions as well as the dark of night.
