On my previous post I explained in detail the meanings and symbolism of the South Cardinal Point, let us learn now about the scope of the West Cardinal Point:
The Mental Grove
“Related to ideas and thoughts”
Offering: Place a Chalice or Glass with pure water
Ruled by the The Maiden Goddess: It is the youngest aspect of the Goddess related with childhood, adolescence, innocence, independence, and new beginnings.
Rules: Emotions, feelings, love, unconscious mind, courage, challenge, daring, sorrow, the ocean, the tides, lakes, pools, streams, and rivers, springs and wells.
You should call upon the Maiden aspect of the Triple Goddess when you need help with new beginnings in your life. Just, perceive her as general innocence and wonder in your heart.
It is time for creativity and and discovery, when we should answer to the call of our own natures and feel free to open to new experiences with no fear of the uncertain events to come…
