Lady of the Moon

Just wanted to share a beautiful chant I found some time ago, hope you like it!

Tip of my Tongue

All the talk about the shopkeeper and me not being at the Imbolc ritual had me remembering the Mabon ritual I attended. I loved it and it was wonderful, but there was one thing there I didn’t really believe in or felt comfortable with, even though I cried when it happened. There was a certain word she used describing it, what it was. During the ritual she went away and sat under a tree by a large slab of stone, and she was, for lack of better words, “possessed” by the Goddess. She lent her body to the Goddess so we could talk directly to her and she to us. It was a strong feeling, but I was still uncomfortable with it, and when something doesn’t feel good, you shouldn’t do it, right?

So what I’m asking is, what was this she did and was I right to be uncomfortable with it?

Blessed Be,

Vaettr

Goddess of the “Week”

Hecate, goddess of magic, crossroads and also necromancy. She’s also associated with childbirth, doorways, dogs and lunar lore. she’s a triple goddess, either as three personalities or with three faces. She’s often called and prayed to as a crone goddess, although she’s often depicted as a beautiful woman and in antique days she was most often known as a virgin. The crone-association could be because of her alignment to the more dark and mystical which is associated with the crone.

She lives in the underworld and her typical symbols are paired torches, dogs and keys. She’s the only child of the titans Asteria, titan goddess of  prophetic dreams, astrology and necromancy and Perses, titan god of destruction. She is said wo also have her own children, Circe, Medea, Chalciope and Aegialeus.  Although they are only mentioned in certain texts.

Goddess of the Week: Brighid

 

Lady Brighid

Lady Brighid of the Bards 
Blessed Fire of Inspiration 
Spark the flames within our hearts
Lead our creative exploration
Lady Brighid hear our song
As we give offerings of praise 
Let your blessings make us strong
that we may serve you all our days

Brighid’s name means Bright Arrow, and She is the Goddess of goddess of fire (the forge and the hearth), poetry, healing, childbirth, and unity. The Sabbat Imbolc coincides with Brighid’s Day, and she is therefore the most celebrated goddess during this sabbat.

Brighid is the daughter of the Dagda, and she was later turned to a christian saint, St. Brigid, by the church. She had two sisters, also named Brighid, and so is a Triple Goddess.

For more information about this wonderful Goddess that I find myself coming back to, look at this british website dedicated to Her;
