Goddess Of the Week: Trae "Gypsy Bruja" Harris

Name: Trae "GypsyBruja" Harris

Location: BK ALL DAY, by way of Bmore

Astrological Sign/rising: I'm an Aries-Taurus Cusp with a Virgo rising

Occupation: I'm a performance artist, meaning I utilize multiple mediums in a performative expression. I focus on movement (dance) poetry, theater and video as my mediums of choice.

Which Goddess or Goddess Archetype do you most identify with and why? 

I identify with the Hindu Goddess Kali Ma. The name KALI means black, death, time. She is the consort of Shiva who is the God of time and death. Kāli is the Goddess of Time, Change, Power and Destruction. Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilation of evil forces still has some influence. I thrive and manifest from the very darkest places of the void, I enjoy those spaces because they are often forgotten and over looked. For me balance is VERY essential and without the darkness their can be no notion of light. I live for the darkness and all that is black and pure. 

How do you get in touch with/unleash your inner goddess ?

Performance, through dance or reciting poetry really helps me connect with my inner goddess and bruja. Also I love rituals and ritualistic practice. Calling on witches and ancestors from my past and from our history helps me unleash my higher self as well as my past and present selves!

What is your Goddess superpower?

My goddess superpower is intuition and prophecy. I'm blessed to be able to dream and manifest with ease and fluidity! I also, since my youth have had the power to see, I call women like myself "seers" we have this knowing and awareness that carries us through obstacles and shows us our path!

Will You join us in the sacred twerk circle?

HAHAHAHAHA, if it's an equal opportunity twerk circle than I'm down... of all the things I am constantly seeking to improve about the self, I must say I slackin' on my twerking skills!! I think I would greatly benefit from a healing twerk circle.. bring it onnnn LOL!
