Postcards from Paradise


The last of the Harvest
in my summer garden


the Harvest Moon
announced herself


and we are in the wonderful time of Mabon


a time of stillness
a balance between dark and light


and play along with SoulSongs

as I celebrate with the creating of a SoulCollage card,

in preparation of the dark mother's return during Winter

Hestia, the Keeper of the Sacred Hearth

'My most sacred place is my innermost Self'

Hestia : Goddess of the Hearth and Temple, Wise Woman


Symbols:  Altar, priestess, home, circular hearth, living flame

Modern archetype : a woman on a spiritual path

 (Hestia in the Greek Pantheon and Vesta in the Roman.) She is one of the oldest Olympian Goddesses and greatly honoured – not by myths but by fire and fire rituals.  The Vestal Virgins kept alight the perpetual flame that symbolized the mystic heart of the Roman Empire.  Vesta and the hearth symbolized the center of the world and innermost mysteries.
