Although modern Pagan dogma predominantly describes the Sun as an aspect of the Divine Masculine and the Moon as an aspect of the Divine Feminine, history shows that this was not always the case. In ancient Matriarchal societies, the Sun, and its intense, fiery power often belonged to the feminine deities – symbols of life, birth, expression, transformation. Solar Goddesses were fierce bringers of light. Radiating the greatness of the Sun, these goddesses were direct, aggressive, Alpha.
Primeval societies looked on them as Mother Goddesses, responsible for all creation and the breath of life. In Ancient Egypt, goddesses such as Sekhmet, Hathor, and Bast harnessed the assertive, feline powers of the Sun and Sky. Goddesses like Brigid, Aine, and Olwen brightened up the British Isles by carrying the blazing energy of Midsummer throughout the dark and dreary Fall and Winter, and tending to it with a strong, motherly warmth. Elsewhere in the foregone world, Solar Goddesses utilized light for war and action, healing and divination, beauty and protection. You can celebrate the Divine Feminine in this aspect by taking charge of your sexuality and desires; honor your power by being bold, active, and glowing with the fire of a thousand suns.

Close your eyes. Begin to envision the Sun, discharging warmth and light. As the Sun grows stronger and hotter, begin to envision fiery flares whipping off its surface and coming towards your genitals.

Steadily and rhythmically the flares begin to penetrate you, bringing the heat of the Sun into your body and filling you with a tingling sultriness. As you reach climax, imagine that you are radiating the light of the Sun out of yourself and back into your partner. Fill yourselves and the room around you with passionate, powerful light and love. Intense!

Sit with legs spread as far as is comfortable for you. Allow your partner to initiate contact with your genitals through the honoring technique of external caressing and tracing. With a little lubricant, your partner will trace the outer flesh of your genitals and pubic area with a thumb. The pace is key here, so have them go slow and steady, covering every lip and fold of flesh. When you start to feel physically aroused, ask your partner to insert one finger inside of you and move it in a circular motion while gradually rubbing your clitoris with their thumb. When your arousal heightens but before you reach climax, have them stop massaging your clitoris with their thumb and put both their index and middle fingers inside of you. Have your partner press firmly in a cross motion each area of your vagina (front, back, side, side), repeating as many times as you like. Alternate between clitoral stimulation, interior circles, and cross pattern pressure until you reach a deep and vibrational climax.

Once you make contact with the floor, your partner will lay over you and enter you making light circular motions, symbolizing the orbit of the Sun.

Have your partner sit with legs outstretched, using arms for support if needed. Ease yourself on top of your partner so that you are facing one another. Bend your knees up and over your partner’s thighs and place your feet on the ground. Use your arms for support as you thrust your pelvis onto your partner. You can both lean back away from one another to build intensity. The further you lean back, the more G-spot stimulation you will feel. This position also allows you to both manually stimulate one another; let your partner massage your clitoris or breasts while you pinch or pull on your partner’s nipples.

Lie with your back flat on the bed or floor. Place your legs straight up in the air as your partner kneels before you. Rest your legs on your partner’s shoulders. Once penetration has occurred, have your partner move your pelvis from side-to-side or in an up-and-down motion rather than thrusting back-and-forth. This will directly stimulate your G-spot and electrify your experience. Since your effort in this position is minimal, feel free to repeat as many times as you like while G-spot orgasms explode like fireworks and you let yourself be revered as the divine goddess you are!
