The Power of The Equinoxes – The Initiate/High Priestess Axis

Equinoxes

Last updated on February 28th, 2021.

Think of the growth journey. That part of yourself that goes from beginner to master; from student to teacher. There are so many beautiful steps in between. And in reality, this journey is never actually over as we continually spiral into deeper mastery through forever maintaining the “student’s mind.” 

This is the magic and power of the equinoxes. Through the lens of The Initiate Frequency and The High Priestess Frequency on InnerSpark’s Wheel, this is the sacred axis of growth, evolution, and mastery. 

Wheel of Seasonal Frequencies

The Equinoxes

The equinoxes occur twice in a calendar year. We have the spring equinox in March around March 21-ish. And then we have the autumnal equinox in September around September 21-ish. And I say “ish,” because it’s right around there; it’s an astronomical event, not so much a calendar event. These seasonal shifts are aligned with cosmic flow. And so they’re always going to be just a little bit different

The early part of the spring season, from equinox to Beltane, corresponds with The Initiate Frequency. The early part of autumn, from equinox to Samhain, corresponds with The High Priestess Frequency. This is the axis of growth, evolution, and mastery. 

Learn more about the seasons and their two parts that in their entirety create eight unique frequencies here.

This axis of the equinoxes represents a literal momentary event of cosmic balance between light and dark before the light waxes (at spring) or wanes (at autumn). 

The Initiate Frequency

From The Initiate Frequency emerges this very beautiful childlike part of us that is curious and open, a student, a beginner, new, naive. In that role of studentship we’re catalyzing a major trajectory towards growth and expansion. This is mirrored to us through the blossoming plants, the inhalation part of the breath cycle, the waxing phase of the moon, etc. This is truly the seed sprouting. 

If we go back just a little bit to the frequency before the spring, we have The Cosmic Child, that time of Imbolc and the second half of winter. We can think of this as the cosmos birthing us. We are legacy and are being implanted with clear visions and dreams and desires for what we’re creating in the times ahead. In that time of deep rest in winter, we are really granted this clear vision of what’s next. It’s truly the beginning of the literal, energetic, and metaphorical growth journey for the next six months on the calendar.

Of course, like I love reminding us, these frequencies exist in very subtle and energetic ways in any given moment, it does not matter the actual season. However, when we’re journeying with the literal seasons, it really grants us a more direct access to experiencing the invitations and the energies because we’re living it in a very visceral and embodied way.

The Journey Between the Points of The Equinoxes

Between The Initiate Frequency and The High Priestess Frequency is The Lover, The Blacksmith, and The Sacred Activist. Each of these unique archetypal energies offers a deeper level of mastery. Through The Lover we’re welcomed into embodiment through our senses, our sensuality, our physicality. Through our bodies, we know truth, discernment, and the guidance of our authentic selves. More on embodiment here.

Through The Blacksmith we enter into a phase of forging, refining the ego and seeing ourselves as part of the whole; really going from “me” to “we.” The “me-focused” essence of a growth journey can often be mistaken for being selfish or bad or narcissistic or egotistical, yet that’s completely false. That spark of initiatory energy requires intense focus and fiery energy to begin the growth cycle. It’s when it’s left unchecked that it can become harmful. Through The Blacksmith Frequency we’re given the opportunity to finesse, sharpen, begin to identify what’s truly important, and above all get laser specific on how we wish to use our vital life force energy. 

This is the ultimate segue into The Sacred Activist Frequency, which takes all we’ve cultivated through The Initiate, The Lover, and The Blacksmith and has us identifying our values, the impetus of our holy rage and what change(s) we want to see and be in the world. 

The High Priestess Frequency 

As we reach the other side of the axis of growth, mastery, and evolution at the autumnal equinox, The High Priestess Frequency arrives. This is the queen, the mother, the evolved servant, teacher, master part of ourselves. This is the exhale, the waning moon, the part of ourselves that is ready just share and serve and teach from the fruits of our labor. This part of yourself understands that laboring is actually for the greater good of all. We don’t hoard our fruits, feel resentful about sharing them, or have some kind of strings attached to that which we share. The invitation of The High Priestess is about how can I share from my fruit in a way that betters all, myself included? After working with The Sacred Activist, we’re pretty clear on what’s important to us and that gets to guide the sharing of our fruit, our harvest.

The poles of this axis are so profound, yet it’s what’s between these that allows them to even exist. There’s a whole world between the poles that create the journey. The polls are just points. The polls are just destinations in between the places that compose the actual journey on this beautiful spiral.

Honor the Equinoxes

Setting aside time for ritual and having some truly introspective reflection time on the journey over the last six months is a beautiful way to celebrate, honor, perhaps course-correct, and more.

At autumn, The High Priestess Frequency, really look at your fruit, reflect on the harvest of your labor. Honor the ways you’ve been initiated, up-leveled, awakened, and all that the seasons/frequencies in between the poles have shared with you. 

At spring, The Initiate Frequency, allow yourself to get crystal clear on what you’re calling in and creating; what will this life force energy, this laboring be for this revolution on the spiral? What soul dreams were planted within you during the deep rest of winter? Is it challenging to be a beginner, to be new at something? Do these dreams feel scary and too big? 

There is a certain level of humility and vulnerability required to undergo studentship, just as there is to step into the role of teacher.

A journey of growth is typically going to require support, right? Something that you are stepping into building, growing, birthing, and mastering can be exponentially improved when we seek the counterpart of another embodying The High Priestess Frequency while we are in The Initiate Frequency. As you share your fruit as The High Priestess, you’ll be doing so with those in The Initiate and the spiral continues, the axis of growth, mastery, and evolution is upheld and it’s so beautiful!

We are always spiraling and growing and moving and shifting and changing. We’re different day to day. Especially as these keenly attuned, highly sensitive beings, we are always spiraling. I’m inviting you to celebrate the equinoxes to align more and more with seasonal and cosmic flow. This is what’s going to save us, elevate us, and facilitate our evolution  into collaborative, loving, harmonious peoples. 

December 21, 2021 – February 2, 2022 (The Void Archetype): The Void is a place of formlessness that is in-between worlds. It’s a cocoon, a chrysalis for becoming and potentiality. It is the womb of The Mother. It’s a place of total rest for repairing, healing, restoration, and rejuvenation, before our re-animation. Is it time for you to rest deeply, Dear One? Are you feeling burnt out and unclear? Partner with The Void and re-establish your sacred spiral flow.

Living in Alignment with Nature’s Wisdom: The Wheel of Frequencies

Last updated on January 3rd, 2022.

The eight cosmic archetypes of The Mother, as mirrored to us through the seasons here on Earth, provide us with a map to guide our steps. They are the members of our inner wisdom council.

What archetypal frequencies can I strengthen within? Which seasonal archetype longs to be embodied right now? Where is there resistance? What medicine is here for me? Read on for an overview on these different archetypes and how to apply them for growth, change, healing, and beyond, or take the Frequency Quiz to help you identify which one is being called to guide you now.

InnerSpark’s unique, holistic approach to Seasonal Living supports us in re-establishing our innate alignment with Nature’s wisdom and spiral. Through tending our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies with food and lifestyle practices, archetypes of The Mother as outlined on InnerSpark’s Wheel of Frequencies, emotional and mental tendencies during the year, and more, we find greater ease and permission to flow and not feel like we must be automatons.

Through aligning with Nature’s wisdom we also heal Spiral Shame, or The Mother Wound, through connecting with the eight cosmic archetypes of The Mother to awaken Her within ourselves for some much-needed intense self-nurturing, which ripples into the collective.

Living In The Flow

Living in alignment with seasonal and cosmic flow is so much more than changing your wardrobe, noticing the moon is full, griping about the cold or the heat, or enjoying seasonal eats.

These literal manifestations of what we’ve come to know as “seasons” are simply tangible expressions of subtle energetic frequencies and cosmic archetypes of The Mother.

We can look to the current external season and notice the impulses that it’s creating within us. Each of the eight segments has its own flavor and invitation and can be a great place to begin and to guide us on our next steps.

These seasons exist on a spiral – as does everything in our experience. This spiral is ancient and continues to turn within, around, through, above, under, over, into, out of us forever and ever. These subtle energetic frequencies and cosmic archetypes are here to guide us. We aren’t stagnant creatures. Our souls incarnated to experience, feel, and grow.

Honoring The Spiral to Heal Ourselves + The Collective

In our modern world, we try our best to sustain a high level of output and doing; we resist change and we resist periods of rejuvenation. We demand so much from ourselves and from the Earth and simultaneously we’re witnessing the rapid decline in our health and that of the environment’s.

This is an unnatural way of living that is a willful disregard of the spiral essence of life. This way of living is also a gross misuse and abuse of our sacred triangle essence, which is our ability to contain, create structure, and hold space.

We’re severely misaligned and it’s reaching a breaking point.

What’s needed, what has always been needed, is to resurrect our awareness of the spiral essence of our existence through repairing our relationship with our inner triangle. This is done through redirecting our triangle essence, that is space holding, containment, structure, towards devotion for the spiral.

The Wheel of Frequencies represent the eight cosmic archetypes of The Mother. We can see these mirrored to us literally through the seasons, yet these energies are so much more than that! They are within and around us at any given moment. They are guiding us, teaching us, and supporting us.

These are the members of your inner wisdom council.

Who’s calling to you right now? Take the quiz and find out!

We hold space for the spiral and become utterly devoted to it. The spiral is life. It’s the cycles of life, the literal and energetic seasons, the physical body, our emotions – all of life in its most pure, raw, wild expression.

Journeying intentionally with the seasons, the many emanations of The Mother, and with the cosmos is the way to remember our innate wholeness and sovereignty. These energies provide us with a framework we can apply to any and all facets of our lives, from physical healing to relationships, to unraveling trauma, shame, and codependency. These are applicable to literally everything, everyone, at every time whatever you are experiencing, creating, healing, etc. These are the primal rhythms that animate us! Imagine if we consciously and intentionally engaged with these energies. This is our power.

We didn’t come here to do, force, and live pleasure-less lives. Nothing else in nature forces or struggles or wreaks havoc on itself as much as we do. There’s an allowance, an awareness, an agreement, a sheer unwavering presence and flow. THIS is our path, too.

InnerSpark’s Wheel and Signature Process breaks down these eight frequencies and archetypes, as well as other correspondences such as with the chakras, sounds, breath parts, crystals, the associated tasks/initiations, the times of day, planetary influences, affirmations, and much more to really awaken your cellular knowing and remembrance.

Additionally, InnerSpark has co-created with Mama Earth and The Cosmos to channel flower essences to support this path, as well.

Let’s go over these eight archetypes and we’ll use the Wheel of the Year here as a familiar entry point:

Yule (Winter Solstice) finds us in The Void. We are formless after our death at Samhain. We are in-between worlds and have been ushered across the veils where we receive repairs, restorations, rejuvenations before being birthed through the cosmos once more.

Reflections: Do you allow deep restoration? Do you trust that endings are actually beginnings? Do you believe the Universe/Source has your back?

“I am formless and fully surrendered, awaiting vision + direction. In the great cosmic void, the womb-tomb, the in-between, I rest and take refuge. I receive repairs, mending, healing, wholeness, resiliency, my inner reserves are refilled.”

Imbolc (Groundhog Day) moves through as the Cosmic Child. We are being birthed through the cosmos once more. We are going from formlessness back into form. From almost a grinding hault, we are being slowly animated and breathed new life into.

Reflections: Do you trust your next steps? Do you feel worthy of embodying your next iterations and evolutions? Can you surrender to a new form and co-create with the Universe/Source?

“I am the Cosmic Child. I reactivate and reemerge after my time of stillness and rejuvenation. As I reemerge, powerful codes are remembered and recognized and I am one with creation as my next iteration and journey around the sacred spiral takes form. I am safe in my body. It is safe for me to take form and create containment.”

Spring finds us new and fresh; we are The Student or The Initiate. We are fully aware of our personal will and are feeling into what new codes and directions have been received from the Divine. We begin the process of learning, creating, and merging our will with Divine will.

Reflections: How does it feel to be a student, a beginner? Do you trust Divine Will? Do you trust your own personal will?

“I am learning, new, and coalescing. I trust I am provided for and that it is safe to be here, receive, be seen, and enjoy. I initiate the process by the power of my presence and my I AM.”

Beltane (May Day) is The Lover. The fire of our passions, of being alive, of inner union, and we become one with the orgasmic current of life flowing through us.

Call upon The Lover in times of relating with others and self, alchemy, self-love journeys, releasing and healing sexual shame and trauma, creating new ways of living/loving/being/doing in the world, and more.

Reflections: How connected am I to my sexuality? Can I harness and channel my sexual life force into every facet of my life and my creations? Am I being the kind of lover to myself I most deserve?

“I embrace my innocence, my natural erotic essence, and shamelessly receive the pleasure and joy that are my birthright. I am eros and embrace fully the sweet orgasmic current of life and its full spectrum. My curiosity, innocence, and tenderness guide my explorations and evolution along my spiral journey.”

Summer brings The Blacksmith, forging, creating, channeling our will with ferocity and discipline to create, express, alchemize. Our passion and devotion are fully alive and we are allowing ourselves to begin to see outside of our immediate needs or pleasures into the bigger picture. It’s that kind of spiritual stamina and grit that continues to pursue Truth and shed away impurities.

Reflections: How do you use your sacred discipline? Do you allow yourself to go “all in” or do you give up on yourself easily? Do you allow yourself to receive energy from the Soul/Sol/Sun/Son?

“I am form and matter creator and shapeshifter. I am a conscious, active participant as I merge personal will and divine will through my sacred body. I engage in high magick and alchemy through my consciousness, focus, and forging of my path.”

Lammas brings The Sacred Activist. At this time, we become very aware of the whole, seeing ourselves as more than our physical experiences, valuing intangibles, and abstract, esoteric concepts outside of our realm of experiencing or understanding. We have come to a place where we can no longer accept what isn’t serving the greatest good of all. We’re open to new ways of experiencing life, wholeness, service, and legacy. At Imbolc, we were legacy, as the cosmic child. At Lammas, we are creating the legacy.

Reflections: What am I passionate about creating and bettering? What legacy am I creating and leaving behind? Am I open to embracing new and different experiences and concepts that may contradict what I’ve been taught or have previously believed? Am I open to embodying my Queen/King/Royalty and birthing new legacies and paradigms?

“I receive the gifts of my labor so I may uplift all into their sovereignty. My service is in devotion and I sacrifice my ego’s need for all I perceived as comfortable for the greater good. My solar aspect reigns supreme as they who forges new paths, births new paradigms and rules benevolently with the fortitude to create a new, rather than upholding existing ‘legacies’ and outdated paradigms. They who forges new paths, finds new ways, remembers themself as whole and sovereign so that others may do the same all rooted in love, devotion, inclusion, celebration, honoring.”

Mabon (Fall) sees us as The High Priestesses. We have come to truly embody a skill, an art and can now teach this and pass it on. Our work and efforts become for the greater good of all. The fruits of our labor have made themselves known, and we graciously offer it to others. The shadow side can be feeling greedy or a sense of entitlement and not seeing yourself as part of the whole and that you’ve never acted alone. It’s an embodiment of the Mother.

Reflections: What’s my relationship with The Mother, my mother, and myself as mother (with or without humxn offspring)? Am I able to openly, without resentment or strings attached, share the fruits of my labor with others? Does an attachment to results, a sense of entitlement, or a feeling of fear prevent me from knowing myself as sovereign?

“I sacrifice my life force energy for the betterment of all to create legacy and lasting service and impact. My creativity serves as an avenue towards remembering the Way of Love, to seed future spirals of devotion, love, service, ease, grace, peace, and the like. The seeds for the future are in the living and so long as there’s still life force energy available to this iteration, so there shall be the intention of guiding and teaching.”

Samhain (Halloween) gives way to The Death Doulas. We’ve reached the end of something; something (a situation, a relationship, a version of ourselves, a project, etc.) has come to a point of completion and we must allow this energetic thing/entity to continue onto its next iteration – we must allow the energy transfer to take place. We are giving death to something with gratitude and reverence.

Reflections: Do I fear death? What’s my relationship with death and dying? What’s my experience with allowing things to come to their natural completions and surrendering to the ending process?

“I release fully into the sweet orgasmic current of death, giving what’s no longer needed and emptying so I may fill once more in the seasons to come. For now, I release this iteration and all attachments thereto and prepare to deeply rest in the void and to receive. My work, for now, is complete.”

When you are experiencing a situation that calls for embodying a particular frequency, remember that there’s always AMAZING medicine at its polar opposite that can influence and direct what’s needed now. While we are entering into Lammas, for example, the Sacred Activist, we can look across the circle at Imbolc, the cosmic child, for additional clarity and insight. We’re ALWAYS holding both poles – just as the Earth is in her two hemispheres.

If you’d like to go deeper, I invite you to peruse the Frequency Collection and other offerings through The Apothecary. If you’d like to live these ways in sacred community with monthly themes and practices, I invite you to The InnerSpark Membership where you’ll enjoy working with a variety of tools shared at specific times of the year when their potential is amplified.

The Wheel of Frequencies represent the eight cosmic archetypes of The Mother. We can see these mirrored to us literally through the seasons, yet these energies are so much more than that! They are within and around us at any given moment. They are guiding us, teaching us, and supporting us.

These are the members of your inner wisdom council.
