GrannyMoon*s Morning Feast 5 May 15

 
Honoring the Goddess Every Day!

I Start Each Day with a Prayer to the Goddess!

Lady,

What is the color of Your song?
Like azure sea,
or jade of earth,
or colors of the stars rebirth?
Your song weaves light and life
and joy–
through eagles flight,
and storms refrain
and rhapsody of growing grain.
Your song is quintessential
–rare.
And when I hear it
You are there.

Meditation
The day is bright and full of activity. Stop in the midst of it and take stock. What do you really want to be doing? Do it!

Daily Affirmation
In the Name of the All-Mother: I will be  mentor or friend to someone in need today.

Closing Prayer
Terra Mater, Mother of all life. I give
Thee thanks for Thy blessings–
the fruit of the vanes;the fruit of my spirit;
life’s abundance.

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 or Tyr’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.

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 for spell work based on justified wrath, wearing red and using iron or amethyst. Money, enemies, courage, energy. Wear a ruby, star sapphire, or emerald. Use topaz in amulets.

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

Heads Up For Tomorrow: Green, brown, amethyst, yellow

Lucky Sign: Tuesday Is The Lucky Day For Aries

Candle: Red

Heads Up For Tomorrow: Wear Green and Silver

Tuesday revolves around the energy of Mars, Tuesdays are good for business, mechanical things, buying and selling animals, hunting, beginning studies, gardening, sexual activities, and confrontation. This is a day for sex magick, energy, stamina, and health. As in the old saying, Tuesdays child is full of grace, is also good for success magick and defense against enemies.

Readings by GrannyMoon ~  2 of Wands

Nature never did betray the heart that loved her.
~Wordsworth (1770-1850)

Your intuition is very important, listen to and trust your inner self. Your words strike home, as no others can. Don’t worry over what other people are thinking about you.
They are busy worrying over what you are thinking about them. Feel your power!

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”.

Today Is …

Guatemalan Rain Ceremonies. Use the altar spring water from yesterday to do some rain making magic. Sprinkle it on a garden, pour it on a rock, and ask that the nurturing rains come at just the right time to assure an abundant harvest for the world.

May 5-6 Hidrellez -The Turks celebrate the first of May with picnic outings, to celebrate the spring. One of the traditional dishes served is a Yayla Chorbash, a yogurt soup, which features many foods associated with May Day including dairy, fresh herbs and the colors of white and green.

Cinco De Mayo

International Midwives Day

On this date in the year 2000, according to a group called the Lemurian Fellowship, the legendary lost continent of Mu will rise up from the Pacific Ocean.

In various parts of Mexico and Central America, centuries-old rain ceremonies are performed every year on this day by shamanic priests and priestesses of the Old Faith. The ancient Goddesses who preside over rain and fertility are honored and invoked with prayers and offerings

China: Feast of the Dragon – as part of the celebration, dolls were made from sacred mugwort leaves and hung above gates and
doors to repel negative influences and entities.

Goddess of The Day: Xtah
Rain Festivals (Mexico/Central America)
Themes:  Weather; Harvest; Fertility; Prayer

About Xtah:  The Guatemalan Goddess of Rain and Water sprinkles herself into today’s celebration in answer to her people’s fervent prayers.  As she does, her rain also bears constructive, fulfilling energy to maintain the gardens of our spirit with spring’s growth-centered magic.

To Do Today:  This is the time of the year when peoples in this region begin praying to the sacred powers for rain. In Guatemala, specifically, they pray and make offerings to the Goddess so the crops will not fail from draught.

If your spiritual life has seemed a bit “dry” lately or lacking in real substance, pray to Xtah with words like these:

Xtah, as you pour forth from the heavens, see my need.  (Pour out a glass of water
here–this is a type of sympathetic magic that encourages Xtah to follow your example).
Rain upon my life and heart with your fruitful waters so I may grow with clarity of spirit.
Thank you for your bounty, for refilling my inner well with your richness.  So be it.

If it’s raining outside, dance in the rain as you pray so you can literally touch Xtah’s presence.  Alternatively, pray in the shower or in the rains created by a lawn sprinkler.

Wear water-colored clothing today (blue, purple, dark green) to accent whichever of Xtah’s attributes you want to develop.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ It’s Cinco de Mayo!
.
Get out those sombreros and salsa because it is Cinco de Mayo! And a Mexican fiesta is not complete without beans. Did you know that canned beans of all types (black beans, red beans, butter beans, garbanzo beans, etc.) are very trendy at the moment. Why? Because most beans are fat-free, high in fiber and rich in protein, and can be used right from the can to add flavor, color and texture to a variety of meals – ranging from salads to casseroles! Jump start your Cinco de Mayo with some trendy recipes! Blend kidney, garbanzo and pinto beans blend together for a great Mexican dip.

Granny’s Note: LOL – Beans, The “Other” Red Meat!

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies ~ Cinco de Mayo Independence Spell

Celebrate this Mexican holiday by doing something unexpected and free today. As you set off,
sing the following verse to yourself and contemplate your personal freedom:

Soaring Eagle with vision true
see all that is below,
Notice what is new.

King of the air,
Sacred bird of the Spirits,

Wise and strong and seldom seen aloft,
Lend me your vision so I may see what is true.

Strength fills your mighty talons,
Courage fills your spirit
and beats in your heart.
Your mighty wings spread wide and shadow all that lies below.

Great Eagle,
Symbol of victory and might,
I call on your independence,
And the courage of your heart.

Moving with the speed of your sacred feathers,
Eagle lend me your eyes.
Make my vision keen and true;
Make my spirit to soar.

Open my mind
to your many visions.
Strengthen my grip to the tenacity
of your steely talons.

Spirit of wisdom,
fill me with guidance on my eagle flight.
Independence grows in me daily, tempered with respect.

Courage grows in me daily, tempered with judgment.
Keen sight fills my eyes, tempered with discernment.

Strength fills my body,
tempered with restraint.

I fly free with brother eagle.

So mote it be.

Moon and Sun rule the sky above.
Here on Earth, the Goddess rules.
Here on Earth, the seven Goddesses.
O Goddess, pure and cherished one!
We sing sweet songs over and over,
inventing pleasing rhymes for her.
Oh, our songs are so sweet that she
forgives us anything to keep us singing.
~Sri Lankan Song

We can find the Goddess everywhere, if only we know how to look. It is easy to find her on a sunny day in spring, or in the happy look on a new lover’s face. But she is there in the dark storm clouds as well, in the late frosts that nip the budding flowers, in the ungainly and the frightening. Anything that exists partakes of her, participates in her. There is nothing that is not part of her.

We must let go of judging this world if we are to truly understand the Goddess’ truth. We cannot pick and choose, controlling life so that we only see what is pleasant to our prejudices. We cannot have birth and love but not death; we cannot have the flower and the honey without the stinging bee. We need not claim to enjoy pain in order to accept it as part of life. We need only feel it, accept it, and move on, knowing it to be part of this life which the Goddess blesses us.
