WELCOME TO GODDESS CARDS!|
You've reached Anne Baird's unique award winning collection of goddess greeting cards for the Modern Goddess. Her original watercolor paintings and stories celebrate women, and explore their legendary goddess roots. The Goddess lives on in all women. She lives in YOU! Connect with your inner goddess. Live your life with passion and joy!
The story of Gaia, Mother of All Creation, is hauntingly similar to great creation stories of other cultures, including the Judeo-Christian scriptures. But with one huge difference. It emphasizes the role of Mother instead of Father!
In the beginning, we are told, Kaos, void and tumult, was all that existed. From this emptiness, Gaia emerged. Together with Eros, the loving generative principle of creation, she created the world.
First, she gave birth to the mountains and the sea. Then, yearning for a mate, she created Uranus, the God of the Heavens, to be her son and husband. Lusty Uranus covered her with his starry cloak and fathered a host of mythic offspring upon her. However, he was not a good father. He disliked and feared his children.
Titanic struggles followed. Uranus, his descendants and rivals, fought amongst themselves for supremacy. Throughout this tumult, Gaia, Mother Earth, serenely continued to bring forth children of every kind. She struggled to protect and nurture them all. No child was unlovely in her eyes.
She was the primordial element from which sprang everything that lives. Everything that lives is of her, and to her it shall return at death. She is the first and last, and everything in between. She has deep Earth wisdom, and the gift of prophesy.
The worship of Gaia went into decline for thousands of years as patriarchal gods supplanted the Goddess. But she lives on still, not just in the beautiful world we see around us, but in the Gaia Movement. This environmentalist movement sees the entire planet as a single, living organism. Everything is interconnected, mutually dependent, and must be defended. We violate any part of Gaia’s creation at grave peril to our souls and to the world.
The Orphic Hymn to Gaia cries, “Come, Blessed Goddess, and hear the prayers of your children.” More than ever, we need her wisdom and healing grace.

GOODBYE TO GODDESS CARDS!
We're sorry to report that we're closing down our paper Goddess Cards business. The time has come when we need to concentrate on our growing musical egoddesscards collection.
If you've loved our paper cards, now is the time to get them! Every card in the collection is offered at a new price of $2.00 apiece. Special collections (Legendary Goddesses, for example) are even less when purchased as a group. Already, many cards have sold out. They're going fast.
Meanwhile, please check out egoddesscards! Every paper card you loved has been converted to a musical ecard. An Annual Membership entitles you to send as many ecards as you like for a year. And there's NO postage! What a deal.
There are also many new, beautiful cards that I think you will like! Our Newsletter, Facebook page, and free Monthly Message Cards will continue as before.
Thanks for your years of support.
I send you love and many blessings. You will always be my goddesses!
Everyone who places a final order with Goddess Cards will still get at least one free card with every minimum order. ($24.00) Every additional 12 cards you purchase above that will win another free card.
