I just returned home from a long weekend in Los Angeles, where I circled & shared & learned & loved with a group of magicmakers. What I want to remember from this is that the act of women gathering together is a powerful one. I see this again & again in my own life. Building deep community, interaction, & intimacy with other women gives all women greater power. Over the weekend, I got to feel this--to be a witness again to the potent alchemy of women's connections--and then, to commemorate it with a sacred symbol.
The inverted triangle is the symbol of water & women, the chalice, the cauldron, the womb. The upright triangle is fire. What I see when I look at myself and what the world sees are different—I am always shapeshifting—water in, fire out. My tarot card of the year for 2015 is Temperance. Temperance, in Rider Waite tradition, has a triangle as the heartcenter of the angel's chest. Along with all of its other symbolic meanings, this angel & this card are what I think of when I see this shape.
