The Selkie's Song|The Opal Dream Cave



This sweet-dream moonbeam maiden is called the Moon Sphinx and is a faery of new beginnings. The child of Epona, the ancient Celtic moon and horse goddess, she guides us through the darkness and light, through all the moon’s deep mysteries, into the faery realms. Her bright wings speak of spontaneity, freedom, and the swiftness of thought, while her knee rests on the old magic of earth formed of soil and stone. In the human world, it is the gold heat of the sun that germinates seeds, but in Faery the psychic seeds of growth are nurtured by the moon’s silver light. The moon waxes: it is the maiden’s time. Call on her for guidance through the dark.
