Astrological Correspondence: Taurus
As a priest, the Pope, or Hierophant, represents traditional values and moral development. He is the wise teacher or counselor guiding groups or collectives on their path in search for spiritual truth or meaning. Depicted as a religious figure in ceremonial vestments he interprets secret mysteries, divine law, and theological doctrine. Although this card implies that he is linked to the church, the Pope signifies not only organized religion but also focus on groups in general, such as schools, teams, companies – any group with fixed roles and assigned responsibilities. The Pope is a symbol for rules, procedures, structure, and ritual, creating harmony within groups and staying their course so they can find identity and progress as a whole. The negative imagery symbolizes dogmatism and inflexibility, extreme conformity, or conventionalism.
Good morning to all the Coven Life’s members! It is a beautiful Spring morning here in Kentucky. I hope you are experiencing the same glorious morning that the Goddess has bestowed upon us. As I just got through telling the WOTC, there is something I have been aiming to do and my aim has been a little off these days, lol! But seriously, you all know Lady Beltane has took a week or two off because she is suffering from depression. I talked to her yesterday and she seems like she is improving. Before that, the last conversations I had with her, I could tell there was something wrong. I just couldn’t pinpoint it. I am so glad and relieved that she found out what the problem was and is now getting treatment for it.
I have known Lady B for several years but really it seems like a lifetime. I was the one who talked her into opening this site. I think she has done a wonderful job here and she still has lots more to accomplish. She is a great person, fabulous friend and a dearly, beloved sister. Our friendship has developed into more than just that, I now consider her a dear sister and a member of my immediate family. I know with the pressure of running a site and then some of the antics I can pull, no wonder she is suffering from depression. I feel partly to blame because she is a very caring person. In case you don’t know how caring she is, I will tell you. I have a very rare blood disease. I needed an experimental medicine just to live, without it the doctors had given me about three weeks to live. A fund raiser was started to get the funds I needed for the medicine. The medicine itself was $700 and some odd dollars. When I finally talked to her, she asked me if we had raised enough money for the medicine. I told her, “yes, we had,” and in the nick of time. I had only three days left to live if I didn’t get the medicine. She told me she called to see if I had gotten the money, if not she was going to take a mortgage out on her house to help me get that medicine. Can you believe that? It is totally true. You don’t meet people like that very often in this world like her. You don’t know how special she really is and how lucky you are to have her. She will probably kill me for telling you what I have told you but frankly I don’t care. I want you to know what a very special Lady she is and a Lady she is. She is a wonderful teacher, mentor, friend and sister. I know I don’t tell her enough how much I appreciate her and all the things she does for the boys and myself. There has never been a time since I have known her, she has not helped me out in anyway she can. She is a selfless individual, she gives you her all.
When she comes back, take a moment just to tell her thank you for all she has done for you. Tell her you love her as a sister or mentor. Show her that you appreciate her because you don’t realize how lucky you are to have her. I know personally, she will deeply appreciate it. Now what I really would like for you to do, is take a moment out of your day to light a candle and say a prayer for her. Ask the Goddess for her speedy recovery, to give her strength to conquer this illness and return to us healthy and stronger than ever. It doesn’t take much time or effort to light a candle and say a little prayer especially when it comes to someone as special as Lady B. Please do so every day till she returns to us.
Thank you and May the Goddess bless you & yours,
Lady of the Abyss
