Spatial background designed with Photoshop filters and starry brushes. Items created by photographs taken by myself. Including the rings of the “Viriditas Planet”, formerly a great success in my gallery

I dedicate this work to all the women that have got, not without a sense of discard and pain, to the age of the “Crone” and that from that time on… they witness with absolute perplexity, how their bodies again, are dramatically changing…and have to re-create their Body-Soul. Hope you will meet the symbol of this Creature. I have worked it with effort for it was not easy to get it out of my Heart-Mind, either as a dream-idea…or technically speaking.

*Tribute to the “dry wombs”…
women kept the secret,
for many years,
behind curtains of indifference.
That of the Universe…
unable to hear their moaning.
She ..the Moon, had taken the tears,
to create invisible ponds of seeds,
being absorbed by her mysterious skin.
Always there…like a puppet of the Earth,
humble and barren…a desert of lost suns.
Compassion has created the worlds,
for the Energy cannot conceive without Love.
Trembling, breaking the channel…breeding Life.
Fearing the pain, paining the loneliness…
at last….I could see that her inside breathed …
her inside burned the dreams of the human souls.

I cannot use my hands to bring their bodies out…
they sprouted from her heart…perfect stars of Love.
Before Viriditas will be swallowed by the greedy Sun,
those kisses of the Eternal Silence,
have come to her… looking for a Mom.
She has got a ring….precious bond with the Sun,
but it is made of hushing winds…and light and dust.
Viriditas has learnt to send her waters to the Moon,
and she…has given her back the Life and her Soul.
The time has come for us….
“dry women”…
to recover…
the Power of the SoulLife.

    You have so lovingly, so beautifully, so courageously honored the crone, the sacred feminine, with this image and these words Rosa. Thank you for sharing this and empowering every single woman who has arrived to the age of Crone.


  • How could not be shared?
    Mostly we are silent.
    And the doctors , for the benefit of their “mothly incomes”…and labs..are pressing women to take on sustitutive hormones….but I say….what about their souls?…who is going to teach us now..that we have not mothers, grand-mothers?
    So thanks a lot for being here.
    It is not a drama…I know..but all the is really important.
    A hug for you.

    This is just magnificent, Rosa! Women are so afraid of the Crone phase, myself included. I was abruptly thrust into the physical aspect of it through chemotherapy, but I was already on the threshold, hoping to make the passage one tentative step at a time…. But that wasn’t the story. I am adjusting to the ‘new’ me, physically emotionally and spiritually. It is a joy and a challenge. I love your words and the beautiful image of rebirth. Bravo!

  • Good!!! so good…
    and now we should teach others fo adjust too, to our situation.
    For men…are not stupid and can now that we are not perennial objects for pleasure and sex..but really growing souls and changing minds. It is hard…..for as usual we are always to be blamed for any un-balance in the relationships..and the rebel ones (me?) have to cope with this blaming complex.
    I thank you so much for your heart and soul here. I feel that it has had a wonderful response, this Moon in Labour. That is how it came to me. Related to myself and all the women, no mattering if they have procreated a child or not. The Essence is the same…
    the Passage too.

    Me encanta la rosa como símbolo de los cambios naturales de la vida y la madurez. El imagen es espléndido! (No se si tenga el mismo significado en español, pero la uso en el sentido de belleza profunda y sorprendente). También las estrellas como indicadores marcando el camino. Promueve la “edad” como una meta que alcanzar con cada paso de la jornada algo rico para disfrutar y saborear.
    Felicidades Rosa, es una obra maravillosa!
