This is the year that I return to the Goddess and making Goddess art. I recently purchased a beautiful deck of Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards by Doreen Virtue to help guide me in my quest and for inspiration.
Today I drew the Yemanya card, Golden Opportunity: “Important doors are opening for you right now. Walk through”. How very fitting.
Yemanya the beautiful Brazilian Wishing Goddess. Like the ocean, life is rich with variety and beauty.
Pronounced “YEH-MAHN-JAH”; She is the Brazilian goddess who was created with the sea. Every December 31, people in Brazil celebrate Yemanya by casting white flowers and miniature boats upon the sea. You can work with Yemanya by putting a tiny boat into the sea and asking for a wish. If Yemanya grants your wish , her waves will swallow the miniature boat, and if she denies the wish the boat will wash ashore. Since the sea is the root of the Earths life, Yemanya’s connection to it makes her a very powerful and nurturing mother goddess. She’s a protector, supplier and one who grants wishes.
A Message from Yemanya “Golden Opportunity”
Important doors are opening for you right now, walk through them. Like the oceans waves, timing is everything, so when the opportunity presents itself dive in at that moment and allow your doubts to be washed away!

A woman was walking down a road, and she came upon a badly injured snake, a variety she knew was poisonous; but she knew if she left it it would likely die. So she took it home, made it a nest, cleaned its wounds, fed it and gave it water. The snake slowly began to recover and she actually started to really care for the snake. Every day he got stronger and they developed a friendship (this is a story, so snakes can talk!). He was almost fully recovered when the woman came to check on him, and he lunged at her and bit her in her arm injecting his poisonous venom. She was stunned. “How could you do that?, she asked. I took you in, I took care of you, I cleaned your wounds, I saved your life”. “What did you expect?, he replied. “I’m a snake”.
