Moment of Truth

Price: $10.00

Celebrate and invoke the Divine Masculine in your life with this beautiful Altar Card, the perfect addition to your altar or mantle. 

These days, many people in my community speak of the return of the goddess and praise her dark feminine qualities (i.e. Kali Ma, Isis, Aditi, Black Madonna, Hecate, etc.); and one day, I realized that the dark masculine wasn't really part of my archetypal vernacular. So I wondered, where is her counterpart? Who are the dark gods? The hidden gods? The wrathful gods? Those healing ignorance with a lightning bolt kind of gods? I knew of some characters that might fit the bill, but I hadn't done any in depth study or ritual with them to really explore and integrate their gifts into my own understanding. The results of my query led to this painting.

Each card is 5.5" x 8.5". All printed in northern California on 100% recycled, 100% post-consumer paper, using veggie-based inks. The carbon footprint of printing this card was offset with the purchase of Renewable Energy Credits in partnership with Sterling Planet. I always strive to reproduce my art as locally and ecologically friendly as possible.

Each Altar Card is a deeper expression of my visual art, one that is conveyed in words. You can collect them all to use in meditation, reading each one silently or aloud as part of your daily practice. You can use them all together like you would an oracle deck, pulling one from the collection to gather inspiration for your day or week. A wonderful and meaningful gift to yourself or your loved ones!


In the Face of Death,
I am Deathless.
I loosen my grip,
I capture the Fortress.

Finding how to break this ground
of sorrow
Fields of bloom and golden crowns
to follow, 
Time spent waiting, 
Today is not too soon
to be the man I want to be,
All I have to do is choose...

I tip my hat in the dark light
to the sun-kissed moon at midnight,
The stormy weather 
and ruffled feathers
have given me up to the good fight.

I'm giving it up,
I’m giving it up.
I'm laying it down, 
I’m laying it down.
I’m turning around
and taking a bow 
to the end with gladness.

I will be the Black Hole Sun,
The Center of the Storming One,
Fearless and Strong,
Always knowing I Belong.
I will Be
Blazing like the Holy Ones,
two feet.
