Lady,
Your chalice is full–
lucid, inviolate.
Your ancient eyes reflect eternity’s
blue roses and
mirror the mysteries
hidden within my heart–
like a song unremembered;
a breath of thought.
Head high You dance the circle;
dance and reawaken longing.
Satisfied, complete yet untouched,
Your smile proclaims the dawn.

Meditations
Smell the freshness of the morning. Now close your eyes and let it take you where it will.

Daily Affirmations
In the Name of the Maiden: I will remember harm none by thought, word, or deed.

Closing Prayer
Thanks to Thee Bright Maiden for Thy care,
for Thy green laughter and fire-edged dew and
for Thy blessing, a most precious jewel.

Goddess of Hesperus begins 8/9 – 9/5

Celtic Tree Calendar: Muin (Vine) – September 2 to September 29

Vine: The Celtic Tree for September 2 – 29.
The Celtic Tree Zodiac is an ancient wisdom tradition based upon the essential nature or qualities of different trees, as they are related to months of the year. The druidic priests based their understanding of trees upon on observation, and an intimacy with the natural world that is almost unimaginable today. By understanding that everything is alive, and has the right to exist as much as we do, the Celts were able to study how each tree has a particular energy that can ultimately be a profound alliance.

Today’s Goddess: Maid Marian
Horn Dance (England)

Themes:  Fertility; Youthfulness; Abundance; Energy; Beauty; Instinct
Symbols:  Late-blossoming Flowers; Forest Plants

About Maid Marian:  A predominant figure in the Robin Hood tales, Maid Marian is most certainly a remnant of the ancient youthful goddess, who blossoms with late summer’s abundance, inspires fertility, reawakens our instincts, and exudes energy just when our resources seem all but gone.

To Do Today:  The horn dance dates back to Norman times as a remnant of an ancient fertility and hunting festival.  Today it remains as a reenactment of Robin Hood stories, complete with hobby horse and deer horn for Maid Marian’s fertility, rock candy for life’s sweetness, and a little brandy to keep things warm!  Should you want physical fertility, you can dance with a broom instead.  Eat a bit of candy and drink brandy (brandy-flavored candy is also an option) to encourage sweet love and passion to flow in your life!

To draw Maid Marian’s presence to any effort today, bring late-blossoming flowers into your home, office, or any place you visit.  If you get organic ones, nibble on a rose.  Digest the goddess’s beauty within so it will manifest without.

Finally, wear shades of forest green, the traditional color for Robin Hood’s clan, so you can figuratively accept a spot beside Maid Marian as an ally who fights against injustice and stands firm for good causes.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – Daily Positive Direction Blessing

This is a daily blessing that can be said or sung at the beginning of your day to help focus your thoughts in a positive direction.

Lady of mystery,
Goddess of life,
Won’t you bring one day,
Just one without strife?
Help me to listen
To my own heart,
To hold myself close
And not tear it apart.
Turn all of my sorrow
To motives for change.
Help me move on,
Grow and rearrange.
Lady of Mystery,
Mother of me,
Help me to heal,
Help me be free.

When you say these words each morning, they will help even the worst of days look a little better.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – TODAY’S POSITIVE THOUGHT  

You are safe as you walk surrounded by light.  

TODAY’S POSITIVE AFFIRMATION:  

I AM safe and secure today and every day.  

TODAY’S POSITIVE VISUALIZATION:  

As I close my eyes I remind myself that all is well.  
I imagine myself moving through my day surrounded by
a light of protection. This light goes before me
making my path clear so that I will succeed in everything
I do today. I imagine people showing me favor in all my
dealings with them. I celebrate the perfection of my life
with my friends. I combine these images with the feelings
of joy and let them go, knowing that they will create the
good things I am visualizing and thinking.

Healing Arts and Pagan Studies – Headaches

Cool compresses made with Marjoram oil can help relieve headaches.
Add two drops of oil to a large bowl of cool water and mix it up well.
Dip a cotton cloth in the mixture, wring it out and apply it to your forehead.

Place another cool compress on the back of your neck to enhance the effect.

Caution
Since marjoram oil may stimulate contractions and promote blood flow,
it should never be used during pregnancy. Also, the oil can
sometimes dull the senses, so it should be used only for short
periods of time. Always dilute the oil well before applying it to
the skin, since it may cause irritation in susceptible individuals.
Do Not take marjoram oil internally!

“The Goddess Companion”
There is someone who lives
in the fold of the mountains.
She wears a coat of leaves
trimmed with rabbit hair.
Her eyes laugh. So does
her mouth, with its pearl smile.
Oh, how the Goddess
calls me to her side!
And, playing there with her,
how I forget to return!
~Chinese Song To The Mountain Goddess

The world around us embodies the Goddess. We can discern her beauty in flowers and trees, her magnificence in vast mountains, her comfort in the sweet taste of fruit. But how often do we stop to acknowledge her? How often do we pass through the world, intent upon our worries, without stopping to offer the Goddess love and gratitude for her works?

As children, we all find it easy to get lost in the beauty of nature, whether that be a backyard or a park, or in such larger environments as a lakeshore or a mountain camp. Can you remember how refreshing that was, to immerse  yourself in the world’s beauty? It can happen again. Lose yourself in nature’s beauty, the only solid reality of our lives. Our worries and concerns are mere illusions, shadows cast by fretful minds. We can find comfort in the natural beauty the Goddess offers. If we can avoid the snares set up by our own minds, once again we can become as free and happy as children.
