Goddess Guide: BeSpook with Cassie
Updated: Nov 10
During this time, finding a sense of normalcy has been difficult to say the least. We are blessed to live in an area with the energy of life still roaming the streets, jobs remaining open for employees to keep food on the table, and the pleasure of stores reopening so people may shop the stress away. It’s me, I am people, shopping the stress away.
But, if we take a moment to reflect on our surroundings, normal is the last feeling we are left to feel. Signs perched on every window: “mask required” or “please keep a 6 foot distance for the safety of others”. This is in no way disrespecting the actions taken by businesses, as the more effort put into safety, the better chance we have of seeing a light at the end of this tunnel. Yet, it is a weary time.
Seven months ago I would have never imagined living a life of half -aced civilians, feeling uneasy when someone gets too close, or even experiencing the possibility of not being able to see a friend or family member because they were exposed.
For the first few months, it felt temporary. As if, one day we would all wake up to “congratulations! You made it through the pandemic!” Then, months later, reality has set in. There will be no celebration anytime soon and this is how life must remain, for the time being. We must remember that eventually the stress will wear itself out, friends and family will again reunite, and we will all be able to cease the constant fear of making fatal mistakes. When that day will be - I am not sure, my friend. Unfortunately, no one is sure. But, what I have been able to learn throughout these months: enjoy what you have. In this moment of uncertainty, we can all agree that our blessings shine extra bright, right now. So, BE blessed. Experience the jovial feeling of what life has gifted you thus far, bad or good, for at the end of the day, there’s always a blessing hidden beneath. It may not be visible quite yet, but that is okay. Like with any masterpiece, time is needed.
This month, for the Goddess Guide, I wanted to introduce an enlightening practice: Tarot.
Tarot is the practice of using tarot cards to gain insight into the past, present or future by formulating a question, then drawing and interpreting cards as an element of spiritual practice.
I picked up Tarot reading last summer, at a time of wanting to gain more clarity and guidance on what I should do for myself and how to reassign my way of thinking. Tarot is a tool to directly speak and listen to the Divine. Who or what the divine is - is up to you. There’s no judgement here, so however you wish to interpret, it is completely up to you. Regardless, Tarot will show you what you need to hear. The question is: do you have the ears to hear?
With the intention of reading for The Hive, here is the card I drew:
~The Two Of Wands~
This is a very positive and affirming card about moving forward with creative partnership for plans, projects, or an enterprise. With this movement, a sense of self worth and influence will follow. This is a time to reflect on what’s holding you back from your divine path. Make a plan to maximize your strengths and your power, it’s all within you. But first you need to understand why hiccups keep occurring so you may continue moving towards your true destiny. We’re all shining stars, but occasionally a smudge will appear, and it’s our job to clean it up.
While The Hive is in the process of opening, I’ve been able to experience the community of people reaching out to help, however they can. Using their gifts and talents to really create the beautiful space we all get to be a part of. Thank you, fellow artists, architects and angels for your help. Every ounce of their help has been so impactful and it's just the beginning to all of the creative beauty that will come forth out of The Hive.
~ Lunar Cycle ~
October is blessing us with two full moons. Yes, two!
On the first of October, the Harvest Moon revealed herself, letting us know winter is coming because the beginning of the autumn equinox has begun. It’s time to get ready for the next few months of winter, however that may look to you. I personally focused on my work, because if there’s one aspect I can control at this moment, it’s my motivation to earn more abundance. Work brings stability, community, and the chance to expand the horizons I wish to set upon. Having more work will encourage me to stop wishing for change, because being busy as a bee leaves it difficult to focus on anything else. Which is exactly what I wish for at this moment.
Following our Harvest moon, we get a pleasant surprise from the Blue Moon, or Hunters Moon, on the 31st of October. Perfect for a Halloween special. This is a very interesting full moon. History shows us how her bright light helped hunters supply their homes with food before winter officially hit, because livestock would be disappearing soon. To modernize this phenomenon, the strength of the moon is at full capacity. She will be here twice this month, reminding us that there is truly nothing too dark the moon’s glory cannot shed light upon.
Finally, goddesses, be safe. Don’t go too crazy this Halloween weekend. I know it may be tempting to let loose and get wild and primal during this second rising of our Mother Moon, but being wise and cautious is the goddess way and can only benefit us all, at the end of the day.
Love to you all,
Hi, I'm Cassie Hudson, Coeur d'Alene local and daughter to the late Todd Hudson of the famous Hudson Burgers.
