Menopausal Momma

I've been considering changing the name of my blog to "Menopausal Momma". I'll be 51 this year and menopause has hit me hard. Well, I guess for the most part, it's not too bad. As well, I haven't had to take any medicine for the symptoms, and only stick with supplements and diet. (pretty proud of myself)

The hot flashes are somewhat nice as I'm generally always cold. But they wake me up in the middle of the night and I then stroll into the bathroom, feeling my way through the darkness praying not to fall or wake anyone else up. I am not the most graceful, and it is very dark here at night. I also wear contacts and dislike my glasses with a mild passion. The bathroom is out the bedroom door, down the hallway a bit and I often pray that the dog isn't sprawled out in the hallway (black dog in the dark is never easy). The bathroom is cool, the tile on my feet helps to cool my flash.

Counsel to One Seeking a Patron God II

Egads, Roberto, everything that I try to write on this topic seems to want to condense into poetry! Maybe that's just the nature of the topic.

Anyway, wishing you Luck of the Hunt.


What have you always loved?

Who are your people? Who are the gods of your people?

If you could live in any other time and place in history, when and where would it be?

Immerse yourself in the Lore: the stories, the art, the culture. Follow where you are drawn.

Make offering and Call. Say: I am looking for You; speak to me, I'm listening.

Look for patterns in your life. Chances are, you're already being Called. Chances are, you've been being Called all your life.

Spring Equinox tradition and lore

The Spring Equinox or vernal equinox occurs between 20 - 22 March. The word equinox is Latin for "equal night". It is also known as Ostara, Eostre or by its Welsh name, Alban Eiler, "the light on the earth". It is a time when day and night are of equal length, and the sun rises and sets due east and west respectively. In secular society, the spring equinox marks the first days of spring, but as we've seen above, Imbolc is actually when the first signs appear, at least in Britain.

The Minoan Pantheon: Gods and Goddesses Galore!

A while back I wrote up a list of the Minoan gods and goddesses we focus on in Modern Minoan Paganism. But since this is a living, evolving spiritual tradition, it turns out I need to update that list. We've discovered (rediscovered?) a new deity or two and have changed some other details of our practice. So here's the pantheon as we're experiencing it these days.

First of all, we consider the threefold division of Land/Sea/Sky to be fundamentally important. This triplicity is represented by three goddesses:

Counsel to One Seeking a Patron God I

Gods make elusive prey.

Hunter, be relentless.

First off, know your forest. Learn the terrain, the trees, the watering-places. Look for where to look.

Then stalk. Note patterns. Hunt with every sense. Follow the spoor, read each subtle sign: the print in the mud, the broken fern, the hank of fur in the bramble. Listen for movement. Snuffle for scent. Trust your hunter's instinct: your feet will find the way.

At times, stalk actively.

At times, quietly wait. Choose the right spot, and your prey will come to you.

When it does, aim and shoot true.

When you do, brace for the arrow to your heart.
