Holy Mother!
Upon the ferment of restless seas
You were born;
motherless, fatherless,
primordial as the sea.
Your realm is of pleasure and
the moment —ephemeral;
Your anger quick as a
summer storm and as quickly spent.
In loveliness of spirit all may
share in Your delight—
the Mystery is the ever loving Self—
fathomless, transient…
Your flame burns bright in those
who love You—
Your rituals endure.
So Mote It Be!

We are ever changing as does the Moon – Feel the Moon – let her fill you up! Join us! Feel free to contact me: GrannyMoonsMail@yahoo.com   Website: http://Goddessschool.com

In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

GrannyMoon Says Today Is: Tiu’s Day – the day of Mars…also Ares, Tiwaz, Tiw (from whom it is named), Tuisco, and Tyr.
Tuesday is ruled by Mars, whose Magickal  influences are: Passion, courage, aggression, and protection. Tuesday comes under the influence of Mars, the planet associated with vitality, passion, ambition, and raw, unabashed power.
Tiw was a God of Athletics, Combat, and Law. Consider meals to improve physical well-being, encourage justice, or increase strength and strategy.
Mars energy makes the mind acute, and the body restless; therefore, on Tuesday we are likely to exert ourselves physically and take action to achieve goals. This day is dynamic and high-spirited, and the prevailing energies may include carelessness and destructiveness as well, so it is good to be cautious—-especially while traveling.
Tuesday is the proper day of the week to perform rituals involving courage, physical strength, revenge, surgery, and the breaking of negative spells.
Today’s Magickal Influences ~ Destination, War, Courage, Surgery, Physical Strength
Today’s Goddesses: Aset [Isis], Soorejnaree, Pingalla, Anna, Aine, Danu, Yngona, Bellona, Aida Wedo, Sun Woman
Perfumes: Hellebore, Carnation, Patchouli
Incense:   Lignum Aloes, Plantain
Color of The Day:  Red
Colors for Tomorrow: Yellow
Lucky Sign: Tuesday Is The Lucky Day For Aries and Scorpio

Pale moon doth rain,
Red moon doth blow,
White moon doth neither rain nor snow.

As when the moon, refulgent lamp of night,
O’er heaven’s clear azure spreads her sacred light,
When not a breath disturbs the deep serene,
And not a cloud o’ercasts the solemn scene;
– Homer, “Iliad”, Bk. viii. (Pope’s trans.)

O Moon! the oldest shades ’mong oldest trees
Feel palpitations when thou lookest in:
O Moon! old boughs lisp forth a holier din

The moon appearing larger at sunset, and not dim but
luminous, portends fair weather for several days.

Seasons of the Witch – Ancient Holidays
Remember The Ancient Ways and Keep Them Holy!
Goddess Month of Hestia begins 12/26 – 1/22
Goddess Month of Bridhe, begins 1/23 – 2/19
Celtic Tree Month of Beth Ends
Celtic Tree Month of Rowen Begins: January 21 – February 17
The Rowan Moon is associated with Brighid, the Celtic Goddess of Hearth and Home. Honored on February 1, at Imbolc, Brighid is a fire goddess who offers protection to mothers and families, as well as watching over the hearthfires. This is a good time of year to perform initiations (or, if you’re not part of a group, do a self-dedication). Known by the Celts as Luis (pronounced loush), the Rowan is associated with astral travel, personal power, and success.
 A charm carved into a bit of a Rowan twig will protect the wearer from harm. The Norsemen were known to have used Rowan branches as rune staves of protection. In some countries, Rowan is planted in graveyards to prevent the dead from lingering around too long.

The Year Is Divided Into Four Seasons:
The first season is of a frigid complexion, and this is “Winter”;
The second is of the complexion of Air, and this is “Spring”;
Then follows the third, which is “Summer”, and is of the complexion of Fire;
Lastly, there is the fourth, wherein fruits are matured, which is “Autumn”.
~The Turba Philosophorum, ca. 12 century

Live each Season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.
~Henry David Thoreau (1817 – 1862)
)0(
NOTE: Because of the large number of ancient calendars, many in simultaneous use, as well as different ways of computing holy days (marked by the annual inundation, the solar year, the lunar month, the rising of key stars, and other celestial and terrestrial events), you may find these holy days celebrated a few days earlier or later at your local temple.

GrannyMoon’s Reading for Today ~ Chariot 
Keywords: Control, will power, victory, assertion, determination
The Winner! Groundedness and the ability to accomplish a task on the physical plane. It traditionally symbolizes a victory of self-discipline. You may find that your mind has achieved greater control over the unconscious parts of yourself. This control is not prohibited or stiff, but does involve bringing unconscious contents to the surface.

Today’s Goddess: Oya 
Aquarius Begins (Various Locations)
Themes: Justice; Tradition; Zeal; Femininity
Symbols: Fire; Water; the Number Nine
About Oya: A Yoruban Mother Goddess and spirit of the river Niger, Oya flows with us through the last day of January, strengthening our passion for and appreciation of life. She is wild and irrepressible, like the fire she’s said to have created, yet Oya presides over matters of fairness and custom, using that fire as the light of truth. Artistic depictions of Oya show a nine-headed woman whose bosom speaks of fertile femininity.
To Do Today : Enjoy a glass of water when you get up to begin generating Oya’s zest for life in your body and soul. This is also very suited to the energies of the day. Aquarius represents the Water Bearer who continually pours inspiring, creative waters from celestial spheres into our lives.
Get out and do something daring today. Invoke Oya through your pleasure and pure excitement. Dare to dream; then try to make that dream come true somehow.
If there’s some area of your life that needs more equity, try making this Oya charm: Take any small candle and carve Oya’s name into it. Have a glass of water nearby. Light the candle to invoke the Goddess. Hold the water over the candle, saying,
“What injustice consumes, Oya’s waters quell.”
Drop a little water on the candle, then trim off the taper, carrying it with you to draw justice to you

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Grounding Spell
During this Capricorn Moon in the middle of winter, you can warm your bones and set strong foundations for your good intentions in the coming year. To prepare for this spell, find a special rock and cleanse and prepare it for magical work. Make a fire, or light a few candles on your altar. Get in touch with your body by stretching out on the floor. When you feel grounded, go to your altar, and place the rock in a spot facing north. Visualize yourself with roots going down into the earth, and say:
Sacred rock, ground me.
Help me set a course for the year ahead.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ AQUARIUS, Jan 20 – Feb 18 
ELEMENT: Air
RULER: Uranus
SYMBOL: The Water Bearer
ATTRACTED TO: Gemini, Libra
LUCKY NUMBERS: 17, 11, 30
TAROT CARD: Queen of Pentacles
You are a charitable and public minded person who is ambitious, energetic, determined, dedicated, but can be opinionated and strongly affected by outside events that are unexpected or out of their hands. You are usually very honest and forthright. Your word is your bond. Once given, you stand by your word and your decisions. You do not have a problem with other people’s right to their own beliefs and you think everyone is entitled to their own approach in life.
You are very considerate of others. You are very independent. You are an individualist. You find it hard to team up with others and tend to go your own way. You have an active imagination, sometimes letting it run away with you. You are usually 50 years ahead of your time. You have high Morals and values, and are compassionate and friendly. You are happiest in work like teaching, writing, painting, inventing.

The Goddess Companion
Free
in the glad greenwood,
leaping like a deer
who fears no hunter.
There I will dance
with no man watching,
there I will find wisdom
written in the forest shadows.
Is there any gift greater
than feeling such joy?
~Maenad song, Greek Dramatist Euripides
On this night in ancient Greece, the Lenaia was celebrated. It was the festival of the Maenads, women who followed a now-mysterious cult of the God of Ecstasy, Dionysus. Little is known about the celebrations of these women, who for more than 200 years practiced a religion apparently based upon union with the divine. Yet even, 2,000 years after their societies were disbanded, the Maenads still hold a powerful place in our imagination. What were they like, these seekers of ecstasy? How did they find the divinity within themselves? We may never know, but we can celebrate the instinct for transformation within ourselves, however it may manifest itself.

In many different traditions lighting a candle is a sacred action. It expresses more than words can express. It has to do with gratefulness. From time immemorial, people have lit candles in sacred places. You may want to begin or end your day by the sacred ritual of lighting a candle on this gratefulness. Or you may want to light a birthday candle for a friend. One single guideline is all you need: Slow down and do it with full attention.

Lunar Lore
The Egyptians worshipped the cat as a symbol of the moon,
not only because it is more active after sunset,
but from the dilation and contraction of its pupil,
symbolical of the waxing and waning of the night-goddess.

the waxing, the mid-month, and the waning,

Justitia Day (Roman Goddess of Justice)
Kassada (Indonesia)
Midwife’s Day (aka Women’s Day; Greece)

Greek: Midwife’s Day. Send a card to any midwifes or dulas you may know. Invoke Artemis, Goddess of midwives and a midwife Herself. Ask Her to midwife to things into your life.
Once a celebration honoring the Goddess Babbo, now honoring midwives and birth. Men stay inside while the village midwife is adorned with fertility symbols such as flowers, onion, garlic, dried figs, currants, and carob-beans and receives gifts from all the women of child-bearing age. A ceremony is performed when they pour out water for her and kiss the ‘schema’ (meaning shape), a large phallic symbol made from a leek or sausage. Afterwards women feast and drink, lead the midwife in a procession while dancing and telling lewd jokes, and sprinkle her with water from the fountain.
Norse: Dedicated to the Goddess Freya (Freyja), Goddess of Love and Fertility. In ancient times, this day was dedicated to the Norse Goddess Freya (or Freyja), who presided over both love and fertility.
Justica’s Day was celebrated by the early Romans

Live each Season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.

NOTE: Because of the large number of ancient calendars, many in simultaneous use, as well as different ways of computing holy days (marked by the annual inundation, the solar year, the lunar month, the rising of key stars, and other celestial and terrestrial events), you may find these holy days celebrated a few days earlier or later at your local temple.

Today’s Goddess: Eleithyia 
Midwife’s Day (Greek Macedonia)
Themes: Birth; Children; Creativity; Fertility
Symbols: A Torch; White Flowers
About Eleithyia: As the Aegean Goddess of Birth, Eleithyia acts as the midwife to your new year, filling it with creative power. Eleithyia’s name translates as “Fluid of Generation,” giving her strong fertile aspects, and she also has a hand in personal fate.
According to myth, Eleithyia was the midwife of the gods and even birthed Eos, the creative force behind all things. When Eleithyia’s hands were closed, birth was delayed. When Eleithyia opened her body, a child arrives effortlessly.
To Do Today: The ancients honored their midwives today as the Goddess’s assistants by giving them gifts. In modern times, this might equate to sending a thank-you note to your physician or pediatrician.
If you bring Eleithyia’s fertility to any area of your life this year, try this spell: Gather a handful of white flower petals. Work in an area that somehow represents your goal. If you want a fertile garden, for example, cast this spell in your garden; for fertile ideas, perform it in your study. Visualize your goal as you release all but one petal, turning clockwise to the winds saying:
The wish of my heart, Eleithyia see,
and bring back to me fertility.
Carry the last petal to help the magick manifest.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Connecting with the Goddess
The month of January is often a time of low energy for many. The hustle of the holidays is over, and another year, full of unknowns, had begun. Even with the slowly lengthening days, we can still feel the effects of limited sunshine on our bodies. When we honor the Goddess during this current Full Moon, we can reunite our energies with the divine source. For this reunion, you will need a while or silver candle, jasmine or another herb to represent your spiritual connection, an herb to represent you, charcoal, and a fire-proof container. Begin by standing in the Goddess salute. State these or similar words:
Lady of the Moon
Mother of night,
Our energies are one
within your light.
Light the candle, visualizing your energy blending with the goddess’s. Mix the two herbs in your hands, continuing the visualization. Sprinkle the herbs onto the lighted charcoal.
As the smoke rises, visualize your energies intertwining with hers. Meditate and listen for her messages of guidance. Thank her, and extinguish the candle.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ A Witch’s Bottle
Gather Rosemary, needles and pins and red wine. Fill a small jar with these
first three ingredients saying the following as you work:
“Pins, needles, rosemary and wine.
In this Witch’s Bottle of mine;
Guard against harm and enmity;
This is my will, So mote it be!”
Visualize these herbs doing just that. When the jar is full, pour in red
wine. Then cap or cork the jar and drip wax from a black or red candle
around the seal.
Bury the jar at the farthest corner of your property or place it in an
inconspicuous spot in the house.
The Witch’s bottle destroys negativity and evil; The pins and needles impale
evil, the wine drowns it and the rosemary sends it far from your property.

The Goddess Companion
Her beauty shines forth: Kokyanwhuti,
she who gives light and nourishes life,
the Mother of all that lives and shall live.
There she stands, dressed in soft wool,
white and blue, woven with the symbols
of womanhood, the butterfly and the blossom.
Turquoise and shell and coral: these are
her jewels. Fair and warm and tender:
these are her expressions. Gleaming white:
this is the color of her soft skin boots.
Look how she smiles at us as she dances
on the shifting sands of time. Look
how she smiles at us before she disappears.
~Hopi Creation Myth
The beginning of each year reminds us of all beginnings. It is a fertile and creative period when anything seems possible. Like the Goddess Kokyanwhuti, the Hopi Spider Woman, everything seems lovely, magnificent, abundant. Hope swells in our hearts. we expect nothing but beauty before us, behind us, above us.
Yet in the ancient myth of creation, as soon as the Goddess appears, she disappears again. So too in our lives, the brief enthusiasm of beginnings comes all too soon to an end. All too soon, harsh reality sets in. Great plans seem foolish and unattainable, our lives seem pinched and small, hope seems to disappear from our reach.
That same ancient myth tells us an important secret, however: that the goddess did not disappear, but submerged herself into the very reality that challenges us. Our great dreams are not dead, only dispersed among the daily efforts it takes to achieve them. Our great hopes are not dead, only hidden within our hearts.  Remembering the presence of the Goddess, even on dark and wintry days of the spirit, we can go forward to a greater future.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “How to Spring Clean the Energy of Your Home”

 Feng Shui

Your home is a representation of your mind, body and spirit. In many ways, there is a connection between all of these energies.

When your environment feels good, it helps you to feel good and just the same, when you feel good within, that is also reflected in your environment.

You may have heard the saying, home is where the heart is, and this is perhaps true in more ways than one. Perhaps on the deepest level, your home is a reflection of your heart.

As we enter into a new season and start the new astrological year, it is important to clear out any clutter from your home.

This is especially true if you have been dealing with heavy energies, or if you have been feeling stuck and stagnant in your life.

If you want to create a new environment for yourself, if you want to create new energy in your life, one way to invite this in is to start with the space that you live in.

Here is how to energetically cleanse your home in order to welcome in new energy-

Step 1: Start with Physical Cleaning

You can’t energetically cleanse your space until you have physically cleaned it. Go into every room in your house and start removing items that you no longer need or that are no longer aligned with your vision. Once the clutter is removed, begin scrubbing, dusting and so on- fun, I know!

Step 2: Smudge Your Home

Once your home is physically cleansed, it is time to do an energy cleansing. You can read more about how to cleanse your home with sage here. (If you don’t like Sage you can also use incense, Palo Santo or bells).

Step 3: Place Crystals in your Home

To invite a flow of positive, loving and healing energy into your home, use crystals. Here are some suggestions-

  • Place amethyst by your front door in order to protect your home from negative energy
  • Place two pieces of rose quartz in the bedroom in order to invite positive and harmonious relationships
  • Place citrine in the home office to invite abundance and prosperity
  • Place clear quartz near all technology like computers, internet routers and the TV in order to minimise free radical damage
  • Place celestite in the dining room or family area to promote happy conversations and to invite blessings from angels

Step 4: Decorate with Nature

Bringing nature inside the home is a great way to evoke positive energy and to clear the energy of your home. Certain indoor plants have also been proven to work just like a natural air filter. Here are some of the best options when it comes to clearing the air in your home-

  • Aloe vera
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Bamboo Palm/ Lady Palm/ Areca Palm / Date Palm
  • Ficus Alii
  • Peace Lily
  • Boston Fern
  • Corn Plant
  • English Ivy

Step 5: Adopt the Principles of Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese design art of bringing positive energy into the home. One of the simplest principles of Feng Shui is to balance the energy of earth, air, fire, water and metal in each room. Here are a few basic Feng Shui principles you can adopt-

  • In order to create a clear flow of energy, avoid having cluttered spaces and areas of the home that are cramped and crowded. Perhaps take a walk through your home and see if you can create a clear channel for positive energy to flow.
  • In watery rooms of the house like bathrooms, bring in more earthy elements such as plants, rocks and crystals
  • The bed should be positioned in the room so its diagonal to the door- you don’t want to sleep directly opposite the door and you don’t want to sleep next to the door
  • When decorating in your bedroom, try to create balance and symmetry on both sides of the bed
  • In the home office, your desk should be in the “power position” which is in direct view of the door- never sit with you back facing the door or with your head facing a wall
  • Try to bring as much natural light into the home as possible, especially in the family room and kitchen
  • Don’t keep items stored under the bed, this is said to block the flow of energy and can interrupt a good night of sleep
  • Furniture should be placed in a way so it does not restrict the passage or flow of energy through the room- if possible, people should sit with their backs to the wall
  • Sharp corners on tables are said to promote harsh energy, so choose rounded corners whenever possible
  • Do not keep broken items in the home, as they are believed to carry “broken” energy
  • Fix clogged drains, as a build up of water indicates that energy is not able to freely flow
  • Bathroom doors and toilet lids should be kept closed at night in order to promote the flow of positive energy

Step 6: Create an Altar

Find a spot in your home to create your own private altar. This is like a sacred space where you can home to meditate or simply sit and reflect. You can also include precious items on your altar such as crystals, photographs and even any wishes or affirmations that you have made for the coming year. Here are a few other suggestions on how to create an altar.

Happy spring cleansing!
