The Aztec Earth Goddess was said to be the creatress of all living things. She is shown giving birth to her son, the Sun God. Legend records it as one of the most difficult labours in history. The Eartj Goddess is found in almost every culture in the World. She is the source of all life, a compassionate spirit who bears the prayers of her children. Her body is the earth, and her mind is the consciousness that flows through all things. She is the oldest Goddess, though eternally young.

The Fertility Goddess pendant is a Votive to The Great Goddess, shows her in her manifestation as the Generatrix, Creatress of Life. Her head, breasts, thighs, and buttocks are shaped like eggs, symbolising her fecund power to create life itself. This is a reproduction of an ivory carving from late in the 3rd millenium BC.

The Goddess of the Womb: The Chevron is a symbol of the womb. The spiral is a symbol of the journey toward the centre, toward healing and becoming whole. It also points the way to the centre and source of life; to the womb of the Goddess and that of each woman.

The Great Mother pendant is based on a Goddess figure found in Cyprus. The original is 25000 years old. The Great Mother is the reservoir of fertility, nurturing and growth. She is the principle of life itself, and the protector of women. She is the vigour of chaste girlhood. She is the fecundity of motherhood, and she is the wisdom and clarity of grandmotherhood. She is the most ancient spirit of the world, and the very source of compassion.

The Labyrinth is the symbol of the spiritual journey to the centre. It’s the onward sign of the inner pilgrimage. It is a feminine symbol where the long and hidden way to the centre has stood for the process of pregnancy and childbirth. The labyrinth symbol was used by the vanished matriarchal civilisation of ancient Crete. It is believe to have been one of their symbols of feminine mystery.

The Moon Goddess: In almost every culture the moon is a woman. The monthly cycles of the moon seem to show the monthly cycles of women as though in a sacred magic mirror. Each month the Goddess paints the face of the moon with the same picture, over and over. And the theme of that picture is the power of women and the sacredness of the energy that each woman carries in her womb. The crescent moon, set against the stars, echoes each woman’s unique sense of herself, even as she lives as only one person among many…

Spiral Goddess: The spiral is the symbol of the upward development of the human spirit. The Woman with her hands above her head stands for the act of drawing down energy from the cosmos above, especially the moon and the stars. Together, these two powerful symbols evoke the feeling of a prayer to the eternal feminine powers that reside in the heavens overhead; a prayer that one’s spiritual potential be realised, and that one should be an instrument of nurturing and healing, of help to the whole of one’s people.

Venus of Laussel: This pendant is based on a carving on the wall of a limestone cave in Laussel, in France. More than 14000 years olds, this Goddess is one of the oldest in the world. In one hand, she holds a horn, possibly from a Bull, which symbolised the Male creative principle in Southern Europe in the days before the Romans. Her other hand rests on her stomach, wherein her womb creates life.

Venus of Willendorf: This pendant is based on an ancient statue found in Germany and made more than 25000 years ago. It is the oldest religious image in the western world. The Venus of Willendorf is a mother-goddess. She symbolises the nurturing and support that motherhood creates. She is fat, showing her abundant life-energy. To many, she is the symbol of life itself, and the creative side of womanhood.

 

Women’s Night Dance: This pendant shows a line of women dancing under the Moon and Stars. We feel the presence of the feminine sky looking at these primal symbols of female energy. The Moon is female, and Her phases echo the phases of life. The Stars are also female, as is the Night itself. A women’s ceremony acted out under the Sky’s protective energy is still an important way to show the primordial energy of feminine power.
