Overall Energy: Medusa
When Medusa was slain, the winged horse Pegasus sprang from her blood. The Greeks portrayed Medusa as a horrifying gorgon, an ugly woman with snakes for hair; anyone who looked at her face was turned to stone. Yet her name has the same root as ‘medicine’ and ‘measure,’ and derives from a Greek word meaning “to protect, to rule over.” Medusa is a moon goddess, the triple-headed Great Goddess in her death aspect. She is associated with blood, so to meet her is to meet the mysteries of moon-blood or menstrual blood, sacred and transforming, in many mythologies the source of life. Medusa is serpent energy, enlivening, Kundalini rising and thriving! Somehow Medusa, a symbol of growth and generation that dies so that from death may come life, became a symbol of fear, for to look directly upon the Divine is to face an unyielding reality. You are Source Light and Life Itself!
Pegasus is instinct, wisdom, imagination, life force, and intuitive understanding.
