More on Planets in Virgo
The intent of Mercury (or any planet) in Virgo is to be more attuned to the natural cycles and rhythms of the Earth and Sky for the purpose of living in sacred harmony and balance with all life.
Spider Woman is a creation goddess, the one who spins and weaves this life into existence, first creating the universe from the four directions of North, East, South and West. Then, within the space of the these directions she created or birthed the Sun, the Moon and the stars, bringing light to both day and night.
After she created the mountains, oceans, and deserts she became the womb that gave life to humanity connecting humanity to her through the threads of her web. The Hopi, Pueblo, Navaho and other Native American tribes considered her so important they never spoke her name out loud. Instead they referred to her as Spider Woman.
The Navajo credit Spider Woman for teaching them their exceptional weaving skills. The story describes a young woman who spotted a wisp or smoke rising from a hole in the ground while out wandering in the desert. When she peeked into the hole she saw Spider Woman spinning and weaving the most beautiful blanket she had ever seen.
Spider Woman noticed the young woman looking in and invited her in for a visit. When they were sitting together Spider Woman asked the young woman to share about her life. The young woman shared she was lonely and desired to have a specific purpose to offer her people. Spider Woman is so moved by the purity of this desire she teaches her how to spin cloth, and how to weave exquisite patterns into it.
The young woman was so grateful for her new found skill she returned to her tribe and showed them what she learned. Delighted to share her new found skills she taught all who asked her – reminding them they must leave a small hole in every weaving they do as a tribute to Spider Woman for giving them this great gift.
Many tribal customs include chanting or singing prayers into their weavings in the same way Spider Woman used chanting or singing to spin and weave the world into being. Chanting, drumming, and singing are often used to create an altered state or heightened state of consciousness in cultures through out the world.
It is a powerful way to connect more deeply with the patterning of life so it can then be transcended and an altered state of awareness is created assisting that person in being a conscious co-creator with Spider Woman and/or Great Mystery.
Of all the New Moon energies the Virgo New Moon as a visible crescent is most connected to the new forms of sacred ceremony or the magic of Living Ceremony. This is the realm of Spider Woman who weaves the sacred web of creation….
SHE…is Spider Woman…
the ONE who remembers…that all women
are ONE Woman
the One who remembers…that all women
are doing the dance of Spider Woman!
the ONE Woman…
SHE…it is…who remembers…
that Spider Woman embraces
the individual dance of Every Woman…
and each one adds to the
single archetypal dance of Spider Woman…
who fills the sky…
