"The symbol of the Wise Woman tradition is a spiral. A spiral is a cycle as it moves through time. A spiral is movement around and beyond a circle, always returning to itself, but never at exactly the same place. Spirals never repeat themselves. The spiral is the path of the earth. The spiral is your individual life. The spiral is the passage between worlds: birth passing into death passing into birth. ~Susun Weed, Artwork by Gaia Orion
