The sacred feminine does not travel in a straight line. She moves in a spiral. A labyrinth of cycles and seasons. This is a deep wisdom that has been lost in the timescapes of the patriarchy. Lost from our embodied being. Taken from our understanding of ourselves as women. Leaving us lost in the mind and wandering the halls of a cultural maze that we do not fully belong. Oppressed by the feeling like we just don’t quite fit in. The holy feminine within each of us crying out to rise and express the primal power of being woman. We have had to shape ourselves into right angles and linear forms, when we are truly round and voluptuous spirals of beautlfully inconsistent being. We are meant to know a different way to travel. But we were not taught the way through the deep.

The Goddess walks throught the fires of initiation and rises each time. Her mythos now only whispers of the stories we know deep in our soul. The goddess knows the dance of our shadow. She unravels and trusts the reweaving. She flows with rivers and blood. She is all phases and cycles. When you allow your own chaos, and surrender to the rhythms of the wild, you invite the goddess into your body. You become. Her. This is the journey of becoming an embodied woman who is In Tune With Her Womb(™). An experience of allowing the Sacred rhythms of your being to bloom in you. Embodied. Whole. Alive. Raw. You.

As a woman you go on the heroines journey every month. You travel through the gates of initiation in your pre-bleed and bleeding time. Into the dark. Into your shadows. Facing your own monsters. And then you bleed. This is the gift of the pre/menstrual body and being. We learn to face our inner critic. We learn to dance with our shadows, and come out stronger.

When we can see this as a time of power each month- as a time to become more of a woman grounded in our center, then we are living in the gifts of our cycle.

This is no easy task in this world we live in now. We have been raised in a culture that does not honor the shadows and depth of being woman. We have been shaped by a world that does not speak of or teach the power of initiation. The path of walking into challenge to become stronger and wiser.  

You have been taught to praise the light and run from the shadows. You have been taught to hide your feelings and smile. You have been told to stay quiet and small. You have been told your body is sin.   

We have been told our blood is dirty. We have been shamed and embarrassed. 

We feel like our period and all it brings is an inconvenience. We feel crazy. We resist having to slow down. We fight ourselves for feeling more. Because. We have not been guided how to be with the descent. We have not been taught the path of power that our cycles are or how to live with them.  

In this oppression, you have been told to ignore some of the most amazing parts of being woman. Your depth. Your intuition. Your emotional intelligence. Your wisdom in the space of BEING. And your embodied feminine erotic magnetism.

As we break out of these patriarchal walls and detox the very fibers that our bodies and psyches have been woven from, we can reclaim something that has been lost to us for a long time. The wisdom of the deep. The power of our feelings. The evolution that is birthed when we travel through the dark and surrender. It is a wild power of the feminine. She lives in the very rhythm and cycles of your body. In the marrow of your bones and blood. There lives the Wild Power you seek. You desire it. You fear it. You run from it while chasing it. This Wild Feminine Power that calls you. She lives in your monthly cycles. She calls from the depths of your internal seasons.

As a woman you are more sensitive during the Pre/menstrual time. Yes. In so many ways less buffered from the world. WHEN WE ALLOW THIS SENSITIVITY TO BE SACRED WE DIVE IN BETWEEN THE WORLDS. You have more access to your intuition, your psychic abilities. If. You can care for the sacred space of womb time. I call this the WOMB COCOON. It is a deep place of wisdom.


It is time we learn a new way. A way that is uniquely feminine. Your body awaits your homecoming. All. The. Way. In. This is key to our embodiment and self loving on a deep cellular level as women. To learn to embrace the initiation. Coming home to feel safe in our own seasonal psyches. To learn to walk through the caverns with our own torch and learn to dance with the shadows. 

I am passionate about guiding you, as a woman, back to your embodiment and healing through learning about, aligning, and reclaiming the powers of your bodies natural rhythms.

I walk with Persephone, Mary Magdalene, and Artemis.

Walking the path of the wild feminine, initiated again and again into my body, my blood, my womb power and erotic dance of pleasure and magic.

May Persephone guide you through your initiations into the deep every month.

Lighting your torch as you travel under ground. 

Reaching into roots as the open sky chills the tips of your branches

The seeds of the pomegranate scattered before you.

You can choose to eat the fruit of the underworld and become your own Queen. 



Peace descends upon the earth
A stillness comes with the darkness
I sit here alone in God
Underneath this spiraling universe of starsI try to breathe as deep as the darkness asks
Sinking under…Breathing waterPeace descends upon the earth
A depth comes with the darkness
Persephone descends
Shadows grow longer as she goes underground
Persephone and her pomegranate seeds
Hades…Dancing with the Lord of DarknessSpring sleeps in me now
As I take these pomegranate seeds
Dig deep into the rich earth
‘Tis the womb place of all birth
I try to breathe as deep as the darkness asksDemeter the earth her mother, she mourns for her
Her tears, the rain falling from the skies into mine.
This green earth Goddess dies, and a mother cries
For an innocence lost feels the cost in the darknessSpring sleeps in me now
As I take these pomegranate seeds
I try to breathe as deep as the darkness asksI’m seeking under…
I seek under…
I’m seeking under ground

Persephone is a Goddess of initiation and Queen of the Underworld.
Her story is one of descent into the darkness.
One that has been told to cast her as a victim, when really, she chose her destiny.
As a goddess, maturing out of maiden and into her womanhood, she chose to eat the pomegranate seeds, fruit of teh underworld, and claimed her place as Queen and consort to Hades.
She. Chose. To learn to walk in the shadows in Her power.
I see her as a patron of the initiation.
We travel through our monthly initiation, and we can choose to claim our power in the underworld, become the mother to our inner maiden, and walk as Queen.



Khadoma is a lover of the deep. She is passionate about supporting women back into their wild wisdom and fullest expression of being.

I created 13MOONS Magazine to resurrect the sacred feminine in Stories and Art. As a Seeress who'd worked directly with Oshun, Yemaya, Oya, and other earlier Goddesses, I noticed a stark difference in these energies and those of later iterations, such as Venus and Aphrodite. It is like parts of these beings were stripped away. Whether to fit the fashion of culture or men, I'll leave for you to decide, but this just didn't sit right with my spirit. And so I dreamed of a platform which would amplify the real voice of the feminine - Stories and Art created by actual women from our perspective, without apology. And here we are.I am called Astara, a name I received during meditation, meaning Little Sirius. I am here to draw down the energy of Ast, also known as Auset, Isis, and the latest: Mother Mary, truly just a hint of the Original anymore. I am here to Remember and to help Remind us of who we are as women, who we are beneath patriarchal whitewashing and power politics as religion. I am here to Remind us of the wisdom we hold within each of our cells which we have mistakenly (and blasphemously) called our meat suit. I am a Sensual Fluency Educator and Tranceworker, offering tools I've channeled from my own body to help you connect with yours. Reach out anytime if you'd like to hear more.
