Mary Magdalene is arguably one of the most known women of the bible.  Was she a prostitute, an apostle or even the wife of Jesus?  “The Gospel of Mary is a Gnostic work written in the second century around 120 – 180 A.D.” (1) Gnosis is to have knowledge based on personal experiences, which also lends to mysticism. So she had an inner understanding of the Divine-Jesus. In Mary’s gospels she sees the sacred feminine as a compliment and balance to the father, along with the teachings of Jesus.  Her gospels were found in Egypt, in the late 19th century.

Mary Magdalene was the woman, “Jesus cast out seven demons from”. Luke 8:2. (2) Her name implies she was from the Magdala region, near the Galilee Sea.   

Mary Magdalene saw firsthand, the trial, the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus.  She was the first to see him after his resurrection and was told by Jesus, “to tell the others”. John 20:11-18 (3).  Jesus’s mother was also Mary and connected with writing these same Gospels, discounting that Jesus had a personal relationship with Mary Magdalene.

Red was normally associated with Mary Magdalene along with green.  “Green symbolized eternal life, color of paradise, hope and promise of eternal happiness in heaven”. (4)

Many people wonder if Mary Magdalene was the Holy Grail, this concept arose from, “The DaVinci Code” by Dan Brown, bringing us to her time in Paris after the ascension of Jesus, where she may currently have descendants. (5)

Southern France is where Mary Magdalene was received when she left the holy land. (6)  Her arrival spread like wild fire and many came to see her.  Lady Mary is known throughout the land as the “holy apostle”. (7)  Mary loved the forest and woods.  She used the quiet surroundings for prayer and meditation.  Wolves were known to surround and protect her.  Mary taught to humans, trees, and animals.  Mary was also known for wisdom and knowledge of herbs and flowers.  As a healer she used potions along with God’s Spirit.

As Mary Magdalene neared death, she blessed her disciples and gave them advice.  It is said, “those who witnessed her transition, saw rainbows and light rays appear in the sky”. She decided to always be reincarnate as a woman.

“Mary said to her disciples, Eve and Lilith are one woman, and she is a supernal emanation.  If a woman knows herself she will know the Holy Woman, just as if a man knows himself he will know the Supernal Adam.  To acquire the knowledge you must be single, which is to say undivided”. (9)


Mother Mary Magdalene Ritual


The purpose of this ritual is to honor Mary Magdalene as my mother, who has always been with me and continues on the path at my sides, back, front, above and below.  To be a witness of evolving from the ashes like a phoenix to grandness even now.

Items required 3-white, 3-black, 1 red candles.  Either use a menorah/Kwanzaa style holder or individual candle holders.  The best time for this ritual is at sunrise or sunset.

Purify yourself and sacred space.  Cast your sacred circle of protection.  Light all the candles except the 1 red candle.

Call the spirits, ancestors, guides all to the circle with you.  Call in a Goddess that resonates with you for each direction.  In this moment of silence or soft music reflect upon the light from the 6-candles. As you individually speak to each candle call to Mother Mary for guidance on this journey. Light the Mother Mary red candle of balance at this time.

Speak chant for Mother Mary.

Blessings and thanks.  Open the Circle.  Ground your energy.


I call on thee. Please help me.  Mother Mary, Divine Grace.

You’re loving energy fills this space. X3 chants.

Mary As Goddess: Mary Magdalene


I am the first and the last.

I am the honored one and the scorned one.

I am the whore and the holy one.

I am the wife and the virgin.

I am the mother and the daughter….

I am she whose wedding is great,

And I have not taken a husband…

I am shameless, I am ashamed…

I am godless,

And I am one whose God is great.

Thunder, Perfect Mind, Gnostic poem, (A, p 55-6)
