Vishnu: Goddexx of the month, June 2019

GODDEXX OF THE MONTH

VISHNU : JUNE 2019
Goddexx of love, and protector of the world. Recognized as a Solar Deity.
 
**Notice the term "Goddexx" in placement of "Goddess" to imply a Deity whose gender identity was found as fluid and non-binary. A foreword about addressing the Deities in the Hindu pantheon: The idea of gender as a spectrum may feel new to some, but Hindu literature and mythology has taught of figures who defied the binary. While the reproductive connection between man and woman has always been revered in Hinduism, unlike most Western faiths, this system historically treats homosexuality and gender neutrality as a natural part of life.**

Attributes
Vishnu takes many different forms for the large amount of attributes they posses. We most commonly see depictions of Vishnu as having dark blue skin, the color of the sky, denoting their cosmic dimensions and connections with the vedic gods of rain, thunder and their relationship with Earth. They are usually depicted with one face, four arms, usually in in a standing posture or in a resting posture. Their four arms hold sankha (a conch),chakra (discus), gada (mace) and padma (lotus) respectively.
  
Goddexx Gossip

A major deity of the Hindu religion, regarded as protector of the world, Vishnu is clearly depicted in the faith as gender-fluid. This major Hindu deity frequently took on the female avatar of Mohini. Vishnu even procreated with Shiva in the Mohini form, resulting in the birth of Ayyappa, a major figure still worshipped by millions who make pilgrimages to shrines in India. The avatar Mohini frequently gets describes as an enchantress who maddens lovers!!

 
What I love about Vishnu
Personally, I really love that Vishnu, among many of the Hindu deities are perfect representations of the gender fluid, and non-binary identities that I feel connected to within myself. Western culture and modernization has erased for years notions of these ideals, and have constructed walls that block outside thinking, and often make those who fall under the spectrum of gender identities to be weak or fragile, Vishnu, the great and powerful is a perfect symbol and icon for the balance of all these opposites and embodies them with strength, love and power. Making them a perfect Deity amongst many other Queer Goddexx's to be invoked and learned about this month of June aka Pride Month!!

Changing the Narrative: Full Moon in Sagittarius, June 17th, 2019
Changing the Narrative: Full Moon in Sagittarius, June 17th, 2019

June 13, 2019

What an excellent and abundant Full Moon! The Sun and the Moon are making their monthly opposition to one another in the opposite signs of Gemini and Sagittarius. Both representing ideas, communication, expansion. But Sagittarius is more prone to filtering out the noise and trying to expand the BIG PICTURE. Sagittarians are natural born story tellers. So what’s your story? This is a time to really sit down and ask yourself; what is it you want? Who or what do you want to be? What do you believe in? Where is your life heading? Your answer may be very far off from where you stand now, and that’s ok.  If you’ve been spinning your wheels, and are ready to make some changes now is the time....

Low Magick vs High Magick + Spellwork Sunday, June 16th, 2019
Low Magick vs High Magick + Spellwork Sunday, June 16th, 2019

June 13, 2019

As with many aspects of the esoteric and occult and even mainstream religion, magic is composed of dualities. The most obvious divide is that of black ("bad") magic and white ("good") magic. From time to time, when acquaintances find out that I mess with the craft, they immediately ask "but you're doing the good kind of magic, right?" So, I personally prefer the Latin terms Maleficium and Beneficium. These better encapsulate the difference between working with ill intentions (malice) and working to heal (benefit). Although something of a trope, a sort of stereotype rooted more in both folklore and mass media than in how real magic is done in the world, this duality still helps classify our knowledge of the magical arts.
