Goddess Calendar for February 2020 by Kimberly F. Moore

“The Sun’s path has returned to where it was at Samhain. Take some time to notice the quality of the light, for it is the same now as that shimmering magical glow of late October. But instead of the season of dark and silence before us, in the Northern Hemisphere, the season of light and growth lies ahead. And so we prepare ourselves with rites of renewal, cleansing, and commitment. We celebrate the first stirrings of Spring.” – Beth Owl’s Daughter, “The Days of Imbolc”

Welcome February!

While Spring Equinox marks the official start of Spring, there is another festival that marks the unofficial “stirrings” of Spring called Imbolc (celebrated February 1-2). It is the quickening of the Goddess as she prepares to cast off Winter and turn her energy to the renewal of Earth. Think of a seed deep within Gaia, the promise of new growth. This is the time when those seeds are quickening, preparing to burst, and eventually bloom into the fertility of Spring. The light grows as well, pulling us steadily out of the darkness of winter. We know Spring is coming even as we remain deep in the womb of Goddess. The church appropriated this ancient Feast and calls it Candlemas and it also coincides with our Beloved Goddess Brigid’s Day.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we are entering the in-between Winter time. Could be snow, could be a crocus. Could be 5 degrees, could be 50 degrees. HolyDays and celebrations mark another turn on the Goddess Wheel of the Year and usher in the early Spring festivals like Chinese New Year, Vasant Panchami (Saraswati’s birthday), and Ganesha’s Spring celebration that all occurred at the end of January.

Goddess Calendar December 2018 by Kimberly F. Moore

Beginning with Winter Solstice (December 21 this year), the shortest day and longest night of the year, it is time for us to tend our light and plant seeds of luminous hope for the coming year. We gather with those we love, or even in the silence of winter, to fan the flames that will sustain us in the next few months as we keep the promise of Spring and new growth in our hearts.

We welcome the Goddesses of Winter

Guiding Goddess and Lunar Horoscope for November 2020

November 2020 guides us into a space of duality and the gifts of transformation. This month, it is the dark love and dedication of the Egyptian Goddess Nephthys which guides our journey.

Nephthys is the Egyptian Goddess of the Dead, Divine Psychopomp, and the Keeper of the Hidden. In Egyptian mythology, she is the daughter of Geb and Nut, and sister to Osiris, Isis, and Set.  The mirror image of the Goddess Isis in both appearance and skill, she is at times considered to be the shadow side of her sister instead of a separate entity. She is consort and sister-wife of Set, the evil God of deserts, disorder, storms and violence. In later periods of antiquity, Nephthys is said to have consorted with Osiris to become mother of Anubis, the God of the Dead.

Nephthys is the Greek translation of the ancient Egyptian Nbt Hwt, and has been translated as  Mistress of the House, the house being the temple, tomb, or divine space. According to the Pyramid Texts, Nephthys was a powerful Goddess, before whom demons trembled in fear. Her magical spells and guidance were necessary for any soul navigating the various levels of Duat,…
