The return to matriarchy is happening now. It will solve so many family problems, imho.
I'd like to know, even before checking your links, when exactly everybody thinks matriarchy diminished... was it longest lasting in the celtic world? In other words, were the celtic women the last to "fall?" Linda
Thank you, Linda, for the initiation buns..:):)and to answer your question, about the last "fall" of matriarchy, I guess you're right about the celtic woman. Not sure how things are in Africa and South America, Hawaii, matriarchy in indigenous cultures?
I do know that by ending a 13.000 year cycle in 2012, masculine in nature, we will enter a period of 13.000 years in feminine energy.
Of course they both exist at the same time, no life would be present if they were separate:)but the scale weighs down onto the feminine side, even now we're in the process of living it, opening our hearts and start thinking from it.
The divine Goddess and lady Gaya will lead again, with us women, shining our feminine treasures. The Creation of the New Earth is a birthing process, a matter of women: the sacred marriage: A-man, A-woman, A-child. This holy trinity we hold within ourselves: spirit/mind and body/instinct merged within the heart.
These 2 x 13.000 = 26.000 year cycles resonate with the 26.000 year precession of the equinoxes, wellknown to astrologers. Earth's axis, somewhat tilted, takes 26.000 years to complete it's "wobble" full circle.
This knowledgde, of switching cycles of masculine to feminine and vice versa, is presented by one of my favorite teachers, and heart-master, Drunvalo Melchizedek. I witness the truth of it in the breaking down of systems that are based on separation, mind control and power plays, in religion and matters of state, in advertising and community life.
To each natural living woman, each day is a day to be lived, to give birth.
To some rich modern men it's a long discussed subject, if the 29th of february needs to be erased, because of commercial and calculating difficulties.
That's the difference between heart and mind matters, I think with my heart :)
Be in grace, Victoria Tintagel.
