I'm just curious. I'm waaaaaay out of the broom closet.... and for nearly 20 years I've worn the same three necklaces that define who I am. The longest one is a one-of-a-kind pendant of Eve receiving the apple from the serpent in the Garden of Eden (the serpent's body and tail create the edges of the pendant). The mid-length one is actually two pendants on one chain - a pentacle on top of a labrys, and a small pewter witches broom. The third and shortest necklace is a basic pentagram with a garnet in the center, and on the same chain is the dancing Goddess (holding a moonstone above her head). I rarely take these symbols off during my normal day.... unless I'm going swimming (because the chlorine messes with the sterling silver) or going to bed (because they get tangled up around my neck and it takes me hours to get them untangled). Once in a while, I will leave them off in favor of a beautiful squash blossom set that my SIL bought me, or a gorgeous amethyst necklace that matches a ring and earrings which I wear with anything purple.
Recently, though.... I have been feeling particularly drawn to a pendant called "Flight of the Goddess"..... it's a pewter owl in flight, with a crescent moon between it's wings above it, and a moonstone in its talons. I've never felt even the slightest interest in buying or wearing different or new jewelry to "define" who I am until now.... but after all these years, I'm thinking of buying it and replacing my pentacle/labrys with it. I'm wondering if anyone else has ever found themselves in the same situation?
It has frustrated my children to no end because they will see a beautiful piece of jewelry and want to buy it for me, but they know I won't wear it because my soul is too tied to my Goddess jewelry. When I'm without it for more than a few hours, I begin to feel as if an anxiety attack is coming on. Very intense....
