Earth Goddess

Published February 8, 2015 by Lunapo

This week on The Pagan Experience, the prompt is “Earth”. What is your definition of Earth and how is it incorporated into your work.

Earth, for me, is first and foremost our home. It is our Mother.

I have a lot of Animism in my beliefs which, while it may seem cheeky to some, I was introduced to through Pocahontas. Yes, the Disney animated film which took a very strong young girl and made her into a very sexy and still rather strong young woman…who fights for love. Because it’s a Disney movie from the height of the Princess era. I was in middle school when it came out, and while [looking back] parts of it are extremely campy, much of the music and the Earth-centric spiritual points are still relevant to me today.

Many people today, especially in the Western culture and Western way of thinking, view the Earth as something to be used. As a convenience for modern man. As something to profit off of. The Earth is alive. She is a living planet. And we are slowly killing her with our torturous ways. I have high hopes for her future, as my generation will do better than my parents’ generation and Witchlette’s generation will do better than mine. We need to realign ourselves, we connect ourselves with our Great Mother and remember she is nothing to be owned…in fact, she is never and was never “ours”.

The Earth, in addition to being our living planet, the Earth is my goddess. The Earth, specifically the mountains, is where I find solace. The earth brings me peace and comfort.

Another image of the Earth goddess, specifically as a mother goddess. I found this picture while I was pregnant with Witchlette. It’s one of my favorites.

The earth is a point which we should all unite, not divide. No matter your beginning, your beliefs, we are all in this together. 

All faiths, everywhere, united for a common cause.
