Spheres Of Light

Full Moon in Leo - Friday 18 February 2011

Ritual written* and led by Janine Donnellan




Introduction

The ideals of Leo and Aquarius come into their fullest expression at this Full Moon and it represents a challenge to you as an individual on how fully you are expressing your life purpose.

On this night we will be connecting to Asherah in her lion Goddess aspect. Asherah was a beloved household Goddess of the Hebrews and the Canannites She is the Goddess worshipped by King Solomon, and was known as "Qaniyatu Elima" "She Who Gives Birth to the Gods."

There is great power and strength in the lion's energy during this full moon. Under Asherah's guidance we are being asked to utilize this energy and stand in our own power with greater control and discipline. This full moon therefore beckons us to nurture and take full responsibility for all of our creations and actions.

As with all Goddess based religions it took a great deal of effort by the male-dominated priesthoods to erase Goddess worship among the common people. Asherah was changed from equal consort to the Shekinah, the spirit and then relegated to the Holy Ghost in the Christian doctrine.
