Medea has been handing out some tough lessons, and while we’ve not gotten very deep into any of them (yet!), there is a need to create and maintain a deep connection to an energetic force as we work through them.
If we look to Larousse Encyclopedia of Mythology (1968), Medea shares with us “female wisdom” from a Sanskrit concept or force of “medha” (others that share this concept are Métis and Medusa). It’s also rooted to Babylonian “Me” or “Mother Wisdom”. We find it with Egyptian ‘Met’ and Greek “Meter” (also ‘mother’) according to Walker (1983). We see many Goddesses that have names from this root. Connecting to this force and being supported by it will help deepen the lessons Medea brings.
Fierce Goddesses and Forceful Teachers
Medea is truly an amazing teacher, but she is a forceful one – rooting us deeply into lessons of betrayal, truth, and power.
Not hers – Ours.
And not betrayal by others, but by ourselves.
Did it sting?
Is it uncomfortable?
Now let’s get to work creating a candle to support our own Fierce Goddess Work connected with Medea!
Never created a Black Sacred Candle? We have you covered! Learn how in this free three-part series.
- Poppy (Seeds)
- Blue Lotus (dried petals)
- Thyme (dried)
- Goddess Mode Serum
- Take a piece of aluminum foil (large enough to wrap your candle in) and place it on your workspace.
- Take a piece of non-stick parchment paper (about the same size as your aluminum foil) and place it on top of the aluminum foil. Trick: Fold the edges of the aluminum foil over the top of the edges of the parchment paper to keep it from rolling!
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- Draw the sigil on your candle.
- Anoint your candle with your Goddess Mode Serum.
- Lightly coat your candle with each of the correspondences as you see fit. Caution: Please make sure there are no large chunks of plant material as these can be dangerous or ‘pop’ during candle burning. As always, please abide by all fire safety rules.
- Place your candle onto the parchment/aluminum foil, wrap your candle, and place in the oven.
- DO NOT LEAVE THE KITCHEN (lesson learned the hard way), turn your candle every 2 minutes (this took me about 12 minutes total).
