Long before He rose from the dead, the stories of many other gods rising from the dead were told.  Even before their stories were told, my Love shone abundantly on this earth. From the well of my Love, this Earth was born, as were you.
Greed has driven man’s hunger for power and his egocentric desire to see himself as god.  As with any rebellious child, I hoped this hard lesson would bring wisdom, but it did not. Greed begat greater greed; hunger begat insatiable hunger.  In his desire to be lord of all, he began to systematically destroy my precious creation.  I have been debased, cast aside and denied.  Along the way, he forgot that his place is at my side.
No longer shall I stand by and allow this travesty to continue. There can be no God without the Divine Feminine. I walk the Earth once again in all my Wholeness and Glory, now and forever more. 
I am the Womb of Life. Hallelujah. I am risen indeed.
Still I Rise 

You may write me down in history

With your bitter, twisted lies,

You may trod me in the very dirt

But still, like dust, I'll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?

Why are you beset with gloom?

’Cause I walk like I've got oil wells

Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,

With the certainty of tides,

Just like hopes springing high,

Still I'll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?

Bowed head and lowered eyes?

Shoulders falling down like teardrops,

Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?

Don't you take it awful hard

’Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines

Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,

You may cut me with your eyes,

You may kill me with your hatefulness,

But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?

Does it come as a surprise

That I dance like I've got diamonds

At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame

I rise

Up from a past that’s rooted in pain

I rise

I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide,

Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear

I rise

Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear

I rise

Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,

I am the dream and the hope of the slave.

I rise I rise

I rise.

(I requested a message from Astraea and received this. I experience her as all seeing and all knowing, her eyes like laser beams that see every unacknowledged or hidden aspect of me. It is both uncomfortable and freeing, as I felt I was able to let go of pretense or role. I could simply just be with her. It is far harder to just be with myself, and yet I find since this experience, that I am shifting in a profound way, as if I have simply just stopped trying so hard. I was always enough, all by my self.)
Blessed child, I have seen your light and you must hide no longer. You are the child of my heart and we have much to do together. I need your whole heart not just the portion you decide to share. Your entire Light is required. You have found your voice with Mercury, healed your wounds with Chiron but your heart and soul belong to me.
The Truth emerging is not out “there”, on that movie screen you call life. This Truth is in your heart and soul, arising like the Phoenix. It bares all, removes all illusion and glamour and leaves no mask intact. The New World demands full participation, with open heart and soul, with open hands and mind. You have no secrets from me, and shall take no secrets forward.
The physical symptoms which may arise as this process continue to serve your Higher Self in clearing away that which no longer serves you. Feel the depth of your Mother’s love. Let it wash over you, and through you. Let it restore and renew you. Many of you have feared that if you open too fully, you will lose something of yourself. Oh, my sweet child, it is the opposite that is true! As your heart has an infinite capacity to love, so your soul’s Light has an infinite capacity to shine ever brighter, for you are Light itself. It was always just that simple.

The change of the seasons is inevitable. It is part of the dance, and part of the whole. A clearing must take place, is taking place, and will complete itself. While the outcomes are assured, the circumstances remain in flux. You create this, you know, with your thoughts, fear and love.
Be as you are. Keep your heart open and fear at bay. Seek the comfort of your heart. It knows the truth and will always light the way. Resist the attempt to “figure it out”. Reach out with your inner senses and touch the web that unites all living creatures. This will assuredly show you how connected all life is and how divine each of you are.
I tell you now, I have told you before and I will tell you again: You are not alone. We are here with you and all will be well. Open your heart to what you would see as miracles, and what we see as circumstances righting themselves.
You are loved beyond imagining.

Drink from the well of faith. It will serve you profoundly in the weeks to come. Much stands to be revealed and will change everything as you know it. Put fear away, for its time has passed. There is only Light.
The dance you observe “out there” is an illusion, a distraction. Hear the song in your heart for it speaks of truth and immortality. Suspend judgement for it has no place in this awakening.
You who came to Birth these days are united in light and the One Love. You stand as guardians and witnesses to the New Life. Do not be taken in by what you think you see. Trust only what you know in your heart and in the unbroken and eternal network of light that connects you all of you and Mother Earth.
I say again that we are with you, more palpably in this moment of time/ space than ever before. We have observed for millennia and guided only with gentle nudges. Our influence will now be more apparent in your reality.
Hearts will open in unexpected places and hate will find no place to exist. You may trust us on this. Be comforted for all is far from lost. The Mother stands supreme, with the Father at Her side.
