Cygnus the Swan sails through stars of my logo, at the center of the circle of the astrological zodiac. You’ll also find the constellation sailing through the stars of the Milky Way over Earth’s Northern Hemisphere.
She’s the radiant ancestor of the stork, the bird my Mom once told me brought the babies, and of Mother Goose, who taught me and other little ones our cultural wisdom in rhyme and story when we were still very small. Traditional wisdom still recognizes her as a celestial guide who directs the soul’s safe journey to earth. Some say she guides us when we leave this plane as well. And, in my life in between those bookends, Cygnus continues to make her mark on me.
After years as The Jordan Center logo, Cygnus has stepped into an expanded job description. Now I’m free to also introduce her to my world and yours as Grandma Blue Swan, Speaker for the Star People.
As one who loves the truth and metaphor of myth, folklore, and astrology, I can promise an exciting, expansive and enriching time ahead. We started the adventure of Story Time with Grandma Blue Swan with the tale of ARIES AND THE BEANSTALK. The story format is described in the drop-down menu, and an audio is available to you as a gift with email sign up. (Or as a gift if you’re already on my mailing list!)
And, please remember that’s Grandma Blue Swan, not the honorific Grandmother. I’m a mainstream-American Elder with Irish-British Isles roots, not a member of any other tribal community.
