Plus access to the exclusive Awakened Soul Coven Facebook Group so you can get support, make friends and ask questions.
I was looking for a way to connect with my pagan roots and The Awakened Soul Coven is exactly what I needed. The material is broad enough to give a great foundation in The Path, and the monthly meetings allow every a chance to work on their witchy specialization. Ethony is a fun, engaging leader who holds calm space for the group and still manages to keep us on track with our spells and studies. Definitely the perfect Coven for an Eclectic Witch like me to thrive. – LIRA, USA
Pandora and her story is well-known in Greek mythology. What is little known about her was she was originally known as Rhea, the goddess of the earth and all living things, mother to Zeus and five others.
Sometime in the 16th century, Pandora’s story changed. Instead of Rhea who was worshipped as a Goddess, she was said to have been created by Zeus as a curse on mankind both lovely and treacherous.
The story goes that she was gifted with a box that she was not to open under any circumstance. Succumbing to her curiosity she opened it, letting loose all of its evils into the world: hate, pain, illness, destructiveness, and a myriad of others.
She quickly closed the box before the last thing could escape – hope. For a time there was darkness in the world and if it weren’t for Pandora’s burning curiosity, which led her to open the box for a second time, releasing hope onto the world, there would still be darkness.
Despite Pandora’s poor marketing, her story is actually a celebration of the strength of the feminine. No matter what choices we make in life – good and bad, no matter the adversity of circumstances, there is hope. And when coupled with feminine creativity, curiosity, and our spirituality we can change everything – a perfect lesson for the beginning of the year.
Our full moon this month is in Leo and a total lunar eclipse. Leo is a confident sign but due to the moon being shrouded in darkness we have to remember to be hopeful even when we can’t see the light.
During the full moon ritual, we’ll be creating a hope lantern that will help illuminate during dark times and remind us that there is always hope to light the way and free will to make our choices.
This month’s meditation is creating your perfect day. When practiced regularly, it helps to shift your reality from where it is, to where you want it to be.
In the Witch’s Workshop this month we’ll be building a vision board for what we want to create in 2019.
I want to thank you, Ethony, for the opportunity to be a part of the Awakened Soul Coven Inner Circle. You have given us so much information, and a forum to share questions and experiences without judgement. It has validated things about myself and my beliefs that I have been uncertain about and questioned for a lifetime. I’ve been able to establish a regular, solitary practice, while still feeling a part of the group. I absolutely love your guided meditations, I do them as often as time allows. In the seven months (already!) since we’ve begun, I’ve grown spiritually, and in turn my confidence in myself in all aspects of my life has risen higher than it has ever been. My intuition seems sharper because I trust in myself more. I can’t express how much I appreciate the experience. – KATHY B
No expensive tools or books are needed to practice magic and be a Witch. I believe that being a Witch is a choice. You may have a lineage that connects back to pagan practitioners but you still have to choose to live your life in a spiritual manner.
Seekers of all backgrounds, gender identity, sexual orientation and geographical locations are welcome.
The Awakened Soul Coven has provided such a sense of community, even to someone brand new to, well, everything it feels like. I love all the learning and finding what works for me and what doesn’t. Plus, seeing everyone’s people’s faces on the live calls and then seeing comments on the Facebook page and through Instagram, it’s really nice getting to know everyone and knowing you’re not alone. – STEPHANIE
