February gets it name from the word februare, meaning "to purify,"  This is likely due to the fact that February was the traditional month of cleansing in Rome, when people reprented of holiday excesses.  The official day for focusing on purification is February 15.  This cleansing theme aslo explains the prevalence of water-themed celebrations during this month, along with festivals for the dead.
By now the hectic pace of the holidays has befun to settle down, and life returns to some semblance of normalcy.  Nonetheless, the need for the Goddess does not go away during day-to-day activities.  If anything, making life an act of worship means including her in even the simplest of things.  In terms of energy, any magick focused on growth, well-being, purification, cleansing, or initiation is suited to this month's aspects.

brigit_31.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 1
 
Imbolc (Ireland)
Brigit
 
Themes:  Health and Inspiration
 
Symbol:  A Caludron
 
About Brigit:  Brigit is an Irish goddess known through Europe as "the bright one" because of her inspiring beauty and fiery qualities.  Today is Brigit's festival in Ireland because it's the traditional first day of spring here, when lingering winter shadows are banished by the sun's radiance.   Anyone desiring fertility, health, or creativity should invoke Brigit's blessings today, as the ancients did.
 
To Do Today:  During the winter months it's easy to get a case of the blahs or sniffles.  Brigit comes to our aid by offering us the spiritual elixir in her cauldron.  Make yourself a nourishing broth today (chicken broth) and serve it in a cauldron (a thre legged bowl).  If you dont' have one, any cup or mug will do.  Bless the broth by holding your hand over the top, visualizing golden light filling the liquid, and saying,
 
Brigit, hear my prayer and bless the cauldron (or cup) of inventiveness.
Renew my body, inspire my heart.
Throughout my life, your wholeness impart.
So Mote it Be!
 
Drink the broth to internalize inspiration.
For health, take any candle (a green one is ideal for healing) and carve nineteen acrosses into it.  The number nineteen and the symbol of a cross are both sacred to Brigit.  Light this candle for a few minutes every day for the next nineteen days.  Or, you can let the candle burn for nineteen minutes instead.

proserpina.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 2
Candlemas (Europe)
Proserpina
 
Themes:  Divination; Protection; Purification
 
Symbols:  Candles; Corn; Pomergranate
 
About Proserpina:  In ancient Roman Mythology, Ceres (an earth and vegetation goddess) sought out her daughter, Proserpina, in the underworld where Hades held her captive.  During this time nothing grew on the earth.  As  she searched.  Ceres illuninated the darkness of Hades' realm with candles (see also January 6 and January 27).  Symbolically, this indicates a time of soul-searching, of finding any dark corners in our spiritual lives and filling them with purity and light.  In works of art, Proserpina is depicted as a young, lovely corn goddess.  In Greek stories she's known as Persephone.
 
To Do Today:  In magickal traditions, people light candles in the Yule log today, giving strength to the sun and chasing away some of the figurative dark clouds that winter left behind.  If candles aren't prudent, turn on every light in the house for a few minutes for a similar effect.  Do not burn the Yule log, however, keeping it intact protects your home from mischief.
Another traditional activity for Candlemas is weather divination, which we commonly recognize on this day as  Groundhog Day.  So, get up an dlook out the window!  Poor weather portends a beautiful spring and a mild, enjoyable summer.  Snow today foretells twelve more snowfalls before April 22 (St George's Eve).

artio.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 3
Homstrom (Switzerland)
Artio
 
Themes:  Spring; Abundance; Providence
 
Symbols: Bear; Fruit
 
About Artio:  Artio is a Swiss bear goddess who awakens in the spring to announce the season and share fruit from her storehouse. This is the fruit of daily providence and abundance, even as the earth itself will soon show signs of abundant life and fruitfulness.  In Celtic tradition, she is also the goddess of wildlife, and she was likely called on during hunting rituals.
 
To Do Today:  As Artio emerges from her sleep, the Swiss burn as effigy of winter to literally destroy the cold with fire and light.  An easy way to do this yourself is to burn a fruity cookie (carefully) in the oven, then disperse the ashes to the earth.
If you've spent a lot of time at home lately, definitely emerge from that "cave," experience life fully, and begin preparing the soil of your spirit for spring's growth-oriented energy.
Put together a fresh fruit salad today and invoke Artio's providence, saying,
 
Artio, see my needs and bless, bring to me fruitfulness!
 
Share the fruit with family and friends to permeate their life with Artio's abundance.  If you want to preserve your resources as well as inspire abundance, use canned fruit instead (which equates with Artio's stores during hibernation).

Shirata.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 4
Bean-Throwing Day (Japan)
Shirata
 
Themes:  Luck; Protection; Cycles; Happiness
 
Symbols:  A Snowflake; Beans; White
 
About Shirata:  This Japanese goddess embodies the first snow, where she glistens and shines with incomparable beauty until she freely and joyfully give herself to spring's warmth and melts away.  By so doing, Shirata reminds us that while the year has only just begun, the wheel of time is ever-moving, and that we should make the most of every moment.
 
To Do Today:  For happiness, cut a snowflakes pattern out of a quartered piece of white paper and carry it with you in your wallet as a charm.  Make sure to visualize the snowflake being filled with brilliant white light, like that which is seen when the sun shines off new-fallen snow.
In Japan, this day is time to chase away any malevolent influences that might hinder Shirata's joyful nature within us.  People scatter beans and make loud noises to banish evil and carve lanterns with wishes to light the way for a better tomorrow.  For our purposes, scatter seeds on ground or plant beans instead so something as beautiful as Shirata can replace any negativity in your life with abundant growth.
To internalize Shirata's happiness, prepare any white beans and eat them as part of a meal today.  If you hold any rituals, use beans to mark the magick circle, scattering them counterclockwise to banish any unwanted influences.

Agatha.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 5
Saint Agatha's Day (Italy)
Agatha
 
Themes:  Health; Well-Being; Protection
 
Symbols:  Any Health-related Items
 
About Agatha:  Saint Agatha was a third-century Italian martyr who now presides over matters of health and protects homes from fire damage.  Many nurses and healers turn to her for assistance in their work.  While this saint was a historical persona (not simply a rewritten goddess figure), she certainly embodies the healthy guardian energies of the goddess.
 
To Do Today:  Traditionally, candles are taken from a central location to people's homes to bring Agatha's blessings.  So, get yourself a special Agatha candle, of any color and light it in a safe place whenever you feel under the weather.
Take out your first-aid kit or bandages and bless it today, saying,
 
Restore vitality, well-being impart,
Saint Agatha, hear the cry of my heart.
On these tools of healing your blessing give,
That I may stay healthy as long as I live.
 
When you use any item in the first-aid kit, you can activate the restorative magick by repeating the incantation.
To protect your home from fire, take a sprig of mistletoe left over from the holiday season and put it near your hearth.  Invoke Saint Agatha's protection by saying,
 
Saint Agatha, let my home be protected,
Let these fire's ne'er be neglecte.
 
If you dont' have mistletoe, substitute any red-colored stone.

February 6
Mardi Gras (New Orleans)
Ayizan
 
Themes:  Pleasure; Playfulness; Divination
 
Symbol:  Palm Leaf
 
About Ayizan:  Ayizan is the first priestess of voodoo tradition, governing the public places where people gather to celebrate the goddess.  As such, she oversees the Mardi Gras exuberant revelry, offering psychic insight and protective energy to keep us out of trouble.
According to tradition.  Ayizan isthe moral governess of humankind, helping us to balance our desire for pleasure with culpability.
 
To Do Today:  Combine Ayizan's psychic side with a traditional Mardi Gras activity: fortune-telling!  And, since it's unlikely that you have a palm leaf handy, use your own palm for divination instead.  Get a palmistry guidebook (these are often handy at the supermarket checkout) and see what future your hand predicts.
Mardi Gras is tradtionally a time of unbridled fun before the serious lenten season begins - so much so that the festivities are overseen by a lady and lord of misrule, who make sure folks really let loose.  One activity in particular inspires Ayizan's energies - that of dancing and tossing grain so that pleasure rains down on all participants.  This also banishes evil.  Try this yourself, tossing rice or any grain-based cereal around the outside of your home.  Then the birds can carry your wishes directly to Ayizan in their beaks!

HsiHo.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 7
LiCh'un (China)
Hsi Ho
 
Themes:  Spring; Harvest; Luck; Divination; Hope; Weather
 
Symbols: Water; Buffalo; Bear
 
About Hsi Ho:  Hsi Ho is the Chinese mother of the sun, who stretches out her son's golden arms to warm and revitalize both the earth and it's people.  In Chinese mythology, Hsi Ho bathes her child each morning in the eastern-shore lake so she can shine brightly through the day, strengthening hope and discernment.  Her sacred animals are the water buffalo and the bear, both of which represent spring.
 
To Do Today:  Li Ch'un literally means "spring is here."  What better time to remember Hsi Ho and her gift of sunlight?  Take out a
yellow candle, bathe it with a fragant oil, then light it for a day filled with Hsi Ho's clarity.  Or carry a yellow-colored stone (zircon is ideal) for astuteness.
In China, people light a candle today and thank the star under which they were born.  This candle can represent Hsi Ho, mother to the morning star.  According to tradition, if you try this and the flame burns brightly, it indicates good luck inthe coming months.  Should the flame spark, it portends important news or a visitor.  A flame that smolders or dies out is a negative omen.
Also make note of what the first person you meet today wears.  A hat indicates rain, shoes reveal downspours throughout the spring and summer, warm clothing portends a cold year ahead, and light clothing foretells warm weather.

wakahiru.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 8
Mass for the Broken Needles (Japan)
Wakahiru
 
Themes:  Needlecraft; Arts; Creativity
 
Symbols:  Needles; Thread; Yarn; Embroidered or Woven Items
 
About Wakahiru:  Wakahiru, the Japanese goddess of weaving, takes a much-deserved break from her toils today to enjoy the beauty of handcrafted items, and she suggested you do likewise.  Legend has it that she is also the dawn goddess - a suitable job for the younger sister of Amaterasu (the sun goddess), who favored Wakahiru because of her excellent weaving skills.  When Wakahiru died. Amaterasu refused to shine until lured out of her hiding place by the invention of mirrors.
 
To Do Today:  Find a pocket sewing kit and use it as a Wakahiru charm for creativity.  Energized the charm by leaving it in the light of dawn, saying,
 
With inventiveness fill, by your power and my will.
 
Carry the token often, touching it when you need extra ingenuity to handle a situation effectively.
The Japanese hold the art of needlecraft in such high regard that all the needles broken in the previous year receive honor at Buddhist temples today, along with an array of sewing gear.  To venerate the needles' sacrifice in the name of beauty, no needlework is done on this day.  IN keeping with this spirit, take out any way suited to your path.  By so doing, you encourage Wakarhiru's genius to shine through them each time you work.

Iemanja.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 9
Iemanja Festival (Brazil)
Iemanja
 
Themes:   Foresight; Divination; Psychic; Abilities
 
Symbol:  Water
 
About Iemanja:  In Brazil, Iemanja is considered the ocean's spirit.  Every dro of saltwater bears her imprint and calls us back to Iemanja, our ancient mother and home.  As a water elemental, Iemanja gives her followers vision, inspiration, and the ability to flow smoothly throught life's torrential times.
 
To Do Today:  At daybreak on this day, mediums in Brazil begin singing and dancing to summon the spirit of Iemanja, who provides glimpses of the year ahead.  Worshipers take offerings carved with wishes to rivers or to the ocean.  Here, Iemanja's spirit accepts the gifts, and the magick of the wish begins.  To follow this custom, take any small natural token and toss it in moving water with your wishes; the water should be flowing toward you if you wish to bring energy and flowing away from you if you want it to carry away problems.
In keeping with today's theme, soak in a mild saltwater bath to cleanse away any unwanted energy and heighten your senses.  Then try your favorite divination tool.  Pray to Iemanja beforehand to bless your efforts.  See what messages she has for you, especially on emotionally charged matters (water equates with emotions in metaphysical traditions).
Finally, to honor Iemanja, wear ocean-blue clothing today, carry a blue-toned stone (like lace agate or lapis), put a seashell or coral in your pocket, dance in the rain (if the weather cooperated), or play in your sprinkler.  Rediscover the element of water.

Yemaja.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 10
Argungu (Nigeria)
Yemaja
 
Themes:   Providence; Blessing; Luck; Fertility
 
Symbols:  Fish; the Color Blue; the Crescent Moon
 
About Yemaja:  Yemaja, the Nigerian goddess of flowing water, bears a name that literally means "fish mother"!  As such, Yemaja generates providences and fertility, especially on the physical plane.  In legends she gave birth to eleven deities, the sun, the moon, and two streams of water that formed a lake.  In art she's often shown as a mermaid or a crescent moon, and her favorite color is blue.
 
To Do Today:  The theme for the day is definitely fishy.  Not surprisingly, new year festivities in Nigeria mark the beginning of the fishing season.  Having a teeming net today portends prosperity for the rest of the season.  So, what is it that you hope to catch today?  Cast out your spiritual line to Yemaja for help in meeting or exceeding any goal.
To bite into a little luck, follow the example of Nigerian children.  They make candles in fish shapes before this event, then dunk for them.  The one to retrieve the most gets the most good fortune.  Check out your local supermarket's bulk candy section.  Ours carries gummy fish that work very well for this activity.
Consider including some type of fish in your menu today (even canned tuna will do the trick).  Eat it to internalize good luck and a little of Yemaja's blessings.

nantosuelta.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 11
Miracles at Lourdes (France)
Nantosuelta
 
Themes:  Health; Miracles; Providence; Abundance
 
Symbols:  Spring Water; Cornucopia
 
About Nantosuelta:  This Gaulish goddess's name literally translates as "of the winding stream."  We can go to Nantosuelta's cool, clean waters when our body, mind, or soul requires refreshment and healing.  Additionally,  artists often depict Nantosuelta carrying a cornucopia, giving her the symbolism of providence and abundance.
 
To Do Today:  What do yo need in your life right now?  If its' love, drink a warm glass of spring water to draw Nantosuelta's energy and emotional warmth to you.  If you need a cooler head, on the other hand, drink the water cold.
On this day in 1858, a young girl had a vision of Mary ( a goddess type) near a grotto in Lourdes, France.  According to magickal traditiona, this is an area where the Goddess was worshipped in ancient times.  After the vision, the water became renowned for its miraculous healing qualities, reinforcing the fact that the Goddess is alive and well.
While most of us can't travel to Lourdes, we can enjoy a healing bath at home.  Fill the tub with warm water (Nantosuelta exists in the streaming water), a few bay leaves, a handful of mint, and a pinch of thyme (three healthful herbs).  Soak inthe water, and visualize any sickness or dis-ease leaving your body. When you let out the water, the negative energy neatly goes down the drain!

Iyatiku.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 12
Powamu Festival (Arizona)
Iyatiku
 
Themes:  Earth; Harvest; Providence; Health; Weather
 
Symbols:  Corn; Beans; Seeds; Soil
 
About Iyatiku:  Iyatiku is the Pueblo corn and underworld goddess who protects not only future crops but the future in general by safeguarding children.  During the early months of the year, Iyatiku extends arms of compassion to embrace us with nurturing support, just as the earth nurtures seeds.
 
To Do Today:  If you have a garden, today is an excellent time to dance on the land and invoke Iyatiku's blessings on your crops or flowers.  The Pueblo and Hopi Indians have spirit dancers waltz around the land to instill the crops with energy through sacred movements.
The Hopi also plant beans on top of underground ritual rooms called kivas, which house Iyatiku's nurturing energy.  When children go into kivas for rites of passage, they emerge as adults thanks to the goddess's care and guidance within.  Using this symbolism to foster maturity or any other of Iyatiku's attributes, go today to some place close to the earth, taking a bean with you.  Plant the bean, then sit on top of the ground covered with a blanket (a mock cave/womb/kiva).  Meditate here, focusing on the bean, the rich earth below you, and the earth's generative energy.  Allow Iyatiku to meet  you in this sacred space and begin manifesting what you most need.

NuKwa.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 13
Birthday of Humankind (China)
Nu Kwa
 
Themes:  Luck; Opportunity; Abundance; Order; Divination
 
Symbols:  Clay; Serpent
 
About Nu Kwa:  Nu Kwa is an ancient Chinese creatrix who formed people out of yellow clay and invented the flute.  Today she plays her music bearing good fortune, opportunity, and the organizational skills with which to make both useful.  She also serenades the earth back to fullness after winter.
In legends, this serpent-bodied goddess reestablished order on the earth after a terrible rebellion. Nu Kwa used metled stones to refashion the sky, tortoise toes to mark the four winds, and reeds to hold back the overflowing rivers.  Once this was done, the earth returned to its former beauty.
 
To Do Today:  The eighth day of the Chinese new year celebrates the birthday of humanity, fashioned by Nu Kwa, and it filled with omens about human fate.  For example, any person or animal born on this day is considered doubly blessed and destined for prosperity.  So, consider taking out a divination tool today and seeing what fate holds for you.
To generate Nu Kwa's luck or organizational skills in your life, make and carry a clay Nu Kwa charm.  Get some modeling clay from a toy store (if possible, choose a color that suits your goal, like green for money).  Shape this into a symbol of your goal, saying,
 
From Nu Kwa blessings poured,
Luck and order be restored.
 
If you can't get clay, bubblegum will work, too.

venus.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 14
Lupercalia (Rome)
 
Venus
 
Themes:  Love; Passion; Romance; Sexuality
 
Symbols:  Doves; Flowers; Berries; Trees; Pine Cones
 
About Venus: Venus was originally an Italic goddess of blossoms; hearts and flowers have slowly become attributes to her loving, passionate energies.  In fact, her name became the root for the word venerate - to lift up, worship, or esteem.  So it is that Venus greets prespring efforts for uplifting our hearts with positive relationships.
 
To Do Today:  During Lupercalia, an ancient predecessor of Valentine's Day, single girls put their names in a box, and unmarried men drew lots to see with whom they would be paired off for the coming year.  To be more modern-minded, try pinning five bay leaves to your pillow instead to dream of future loves.  If you're married or otherwise involved, steep the bay leaves in water and drink the resulting tea to strengthen the love in your relationship.
To encourage balance in a relationship, bind together Venus's symbols, a pine cone and a flower, and put them somewhere in your home.  Or, to spice up a passionate moment, feed fresh berries to each other and drink a berry beverage from one cup (symbolizing united goals and destinies).
In Rome tradition, anywhere there's a large stone adjacent to a tall tree, Venus is also there.  Should you know of such a place, go there today and commune with her warm, lust energy.

Shakti1.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 15
Losar (Tibet)
Shakti
 
Themes:  Protection; Banishing Communication
 
Symbols:  The Number Six; Magick Charms: Lotus
 
About Shakti:  The Tibetan supreme feminine power. Shakti does not stand by idly when we are in distress.  She is an active, loving force for change.  When called upon, Shakti manifests within us as intelligence, instinct, willpower, energy, action, and ultimately, magick.  Shakti especially energizes communication skills, so that our words will be heard clearly and understood.
 
To Do Today:  Losar is the Tibetan new year celebration, high-lighted by monks casting out negative influences using brilliant-colored costumes, mask, and joyful dancing.  Burn lotus incense (or any sweet, floral scent) to remember Shakti todya, and fill your living space with her abundant power for positive transformation.  Alternatively, boil some pleasant-smelling cooking spices in water to release their aroma and energy throughout the sacred space of your home.
If possible, make a mask or a token that represents what you want Shakti to banish.  Put it on (or carry it) early in the day, and remove it vigorously sometime during your festivities.  Bury this with six stones (to represent Shakti's control) to symbolically bury the bad habit or situation, giving it inot Shakti's care.
In keeping with today's celebrations, wear bright-colored clothing to chase away evil influences, which cannot bear the sight of radiant beauty.

Victoria.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 16
Victoria's Day (Rome)
Victoria
 
Themes:  Victory; Success; Excellence
 
Symbols:  Wings (or Feathers); Laurel
 
About Victoria:  Victoria, as her name implies, si the Roman goddess of attainment.  Early in the year she inspires resolve within us to do everything we undertake, with excellence as a goal.  In works of arts, Victoria is often depicted with wings that allow her to surmount any obstacle or problem.
 
To Do Today:  Drink a tea made from lemon balm, ginger, and a pinch of cinnamon to generate a successful attitude.  Remember: if you think you can, you can!
Put a bay leaf (a form of laurel) in your shoe so that Victoria's triumphant energy can walk with you all day long.  Later in the day, burn a few bay leaves on a fire source to fill your home with success.
Alternative aromas that invoke Victoria's favor are rose and red sandalwood.
 
To make a victory charm, find a feather (or cut paper in the shape of a feather) and empower it with this incantation.
 
With the wings of Victoria, I will rise
About all areas where trouble lies.
Through diligence and mastery I will see
today begins my victory!

Carry this token anytime you feel your confidence waning, or when you need a boost to get over any seemingly insurmountable obstacle.

fornax_xray_med.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 17
Fornacalia (Rome)
Fornax
 
Themes:  Home; Love
 
Symbols:  Stove; Fire; Wheat
 
About Fornax:  In Rome, Fornax guided the baking of bread, which, being the proverbial staff of life, was no small matter.  Today Fornax still stands ready to watch over our hearths, as the goddess of the oven, which is the true heart of any home.  If her fires go out, folklore says, warmth among the home's occupants dwindles soon thereafter.
 
To Do Today:  Fornacalia wa the Roman festival of ovens, in which Fornax was invoked by baking wheat breads and other grain-related foods.  So think about dusting off your cookbooks, especially any recipes from your family, and start baking!  Even people pressed for time can usually make a batch of bread from frozen dough.  If you only own a microwave, have no fear - microwaveable soft-dough pretzels are readily available in the freezer section of your supermarket.  Or, simpler still, have toast for breakfast this morning to internalize Fornax's warm emotions.  On the other hand, if you'd like to give Fornax a much-needed break from her toils at your place, go out and eat!  Just make sure to have some bread as part of the meal to welcome Fornax to your feast.  Finally, take any dried bread you have and crumble it up for the birds.  Focus on your desire for love and closeness in your life.  The birds will convey your wishes to Fornax, the heavens, and the four corners of creation.

Lara.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 18
Parentalia (Rome)
Lara
 
Themes:  Peace; Death; Protection
 
Symbols:  Rose; Violet; Wine; Crossroads
 
About Lara:  Lara, whose name means "mother of the dead," was the guardian of ancestral spirits in whose care is the home, the family, and by extension, the community.  According to tradition, crossroads are sacred spots for Lara, being the meeting of two road, symbolic of an area where the temporal world and spirit world "cross" over one another.
 
To Do Today:  In Rome, Parentalia was part of a weeklong observance dedicated to one's ancestors.  So, pull out the scrapbooks, discuss your family tree, and fondly remember those who have been a part of your family history.  If possible, light a white candle in one of your windows to greet the ancestors and Lara.  Or, leave an empty chair at your dinner table tonight with some of the deceased's favorite foods in the empty place at the table to welcome them and Lara into your home.
This is also a time to visit grave sites, leaving roses, violets, wine and other gifts for the deceased.  These actions propitiate the spirits and ensure the family of ongoing harmony through out the year.
Finally, Romans settled any arguments with family members or friends today, so follow their example.  If you can, arrange to meet the person with whom you've argued at a crossroads, so that your two minds can " meet in the middle."  Scatter rose or violet petals where you meet to inspire Fornax's warmth.

Oniata.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 20
Winterlude (Ottawa, Canada)
Oniata
 
 Themes: Recreation; Good Sportsmanship
 
Symbols:  Early-blooming Flowers; Snow
 
About Oniata:  Oniata, an Iroguois goddess, embodies what it means to be a good sport.  According to legend she came to live with the Iroquois, who found her beauty distracting, so much sothat men left their families just to catch a glimpse of her radiance.  When Oniata found out about this rather, than getting angry with the men, she lefthe earth.  The only trace of her beauty she left behind was the sprouting of spring flowers peeking out from melting snow.
 
To Do Today:  Plant some early blooming seeds today sothat when they blossom, Oniata's good humor and temperament can also bloom in your life.
In Canada, people take this opportunity to enjoy the last remnants of winter by participating in various sporting activities (especially skating) and by making snow sculptures.  Try the latter activity yourself; perhaps create a flower out of packed snow to honor and welcome Oniata.  If you live in a warm climate, you can blend up some ice cubes to a snowy consistency for scultpting and make it into a snowcone afterward to internalize the energy!  Or, consider going to an ice rink for  a little rest and relaxation.  Return outside and appreciate any flowers nearby.  Oniata live in their fragance and loveliness.

Libitina.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 21
Feralia (Rome)
Libitina
 
Themes:  Death; Freedom
 
Symbol:  Fire
 
About Libitina:  Libitina is the kindly natured Roman goddess of funerals and pyres.  In poetic writings, her name metaphorically equates with figurative or literal demise.  Turn to her this month to "die" to outmoded ideas or be freed from bad habits.  Or call on her to invoke peace for the spirits in Summerland.
 
To Do Today:  In Rome, Feralia was part of a weeklong festival honoring, appeasing, and communicating with the spirits of dead ancestors.  If there's something you want to say to a departed loved oneor a token you want to give them, today is an excellent time to try this Libitina mini-ritual.  Following Roman custom, toss a message or gift into a fire source, focusing on the individual for whom it's intended.  Libitina bears the energy of the gift or note safely to the desired spirit.  Emotionally, this type of ritual liberates you from lingering guilt and generates a sense of closure.
Use the same ritual to rid yourself of old ideas or characteristics that fetter spiritual growth.  Take any flammable objects that represents this characteristic.  Hold it in your hands and channel that obsolete energy into it.  Toss it into a fire, saying,
 
Libitina, liberate me; as this burns, my spirit is freed.
 
Turn your back to teh fire and don't look back until the symbol is completely destroyed.

binah.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 22
Brotherhood Day (United States)
Binah
 
Themes:  Peace; Cooperation; Communication; Unity; Spirituality
 
Symbols:  Bees; Lilies; Lead
 
About Binah:  In Cabalistic tradition, Binah embodies spiritual discernment, love, stability, and awareness.  As the third sephirah of the Tree of Life, Binah becomes a divine mother, guiding her children toward attainment and comprehension.  Her name literally translates as "the understanding," which gives form and function to all other aspects of life.  Bees are sacred to her (as divine messengers), as are lilies (white in purity), and lead (which gives us a foothold in reality).
 
To Do Today:  Binah's energy was present in 1934 when Brotherhood Day began to bring people of diverse faiths together in an atmosphere of tolerance and respect.  The thrust of the day is universal brotherhood, accenting our likenesses instead of our differences.  So, take time today to learn more about other faiths and foster an open exchange of ideas.  Perhaps visit a church or temple and observe quietly, seeing that the Goddess is there, too.
To promote strong spiritual roots in your own life, as well as the understanding to nurture those roots, try this spell:  Take a piece of lead (maybe from a pencil) and hold it in your dominant hand, saying,
 
Binah, walk with me; understanding impart.
Every day be part of my heart.
 
Write this down and put the incantation in your shoe so that Binah will walk with you wherever you may be.

minerva-getty.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 23
Terminalia (Rome)
Minerva
 
Themes:  Earth; Home
 
Symbols:  Owls; Geranium
 
About Minerva:  This Etruscan/Italic goddess blended the odd attributes of being a patroness of household tasks, including arts and crafts, and also being the patroness of protection and of war.  Today she joins in presprings festivities by helping people prepare their lands for sowing and embracing the figurative lands of our hearts, home, and spirits with her positive energy.
 
To Do Today:  In ancient times, this was a day to bless one's lands and borders.  Gifts of corn, honey, and wine were given to the earth and its spirits to keep the property safe and fertile throughout the year.  In modern times, this equates to a Minerva-centered house blessing.
Begin by putting on some spiritually uplifting music.  Burn geranium-scented incense if possible, otherwise, any pantry spice will do. Take this into every room of your home, always moving clockwise to promote positive growing energy.  As you get to each room, repeat this incantation:
 
Minerva, protect this sacred space
and all who live within.
By your power and my will,
the magick now begins!
 
Wear a geranium today to commemorate Minerva and welcome her energy into your life.

Kali.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 24
Festival of Shiva (India)
Kali
 
Themes:  Rebirth; Cycles; Joy; Courage; Hope; Cleansing; Change
 
Symbols:  Flowers; Dance; Iron; Sword; Peacock; Feathers; Honey
 
About Kali:  Kali, a Hindu goddess whose name means "time," is the genetrix of natural forces that either build or destroy.  Even in destruction, however, she reminds us that good really can come of bad situations.  If you find your hopes and dreams have been crushed, Kali can change the cycle and produce life out of nothingness.  Where there is sorrow, she dances to bring joy.  Where there is fear, she dance in courage.
 
To Do Today:  Hindus gather today at Shiva's temples to honor his celestial dance of creation, and Kali dances with them in spirit.  Beforehand, they fast and bathe in holy waters for purification.  Doing similarly (in your tub or shower) will purge your body and soul of negative influences.  Add some flower petals or sweet perfume to the bath to invoke Kali's cleansing power.
To invoke Kali's assistance in bringing new life to stagnant projects or ruined goals, leave her an offering of honey or flowers, and make this amulet:  Take any black cloth and wrap it around a flower dabbed with a drop of honey, saying,
 
Kali, turn, dance, and change.
Fate rearrange.
End the devastation and strife;
what was dead return to life.
 
Carry this with you until the situation changes, then bury it with thankfulness.

February 25
Ta'Anith Esther (Israel)
Asherah
 
Themes:  Kindness; Love; Divination; Foresight
 
Symbols:  Lion; Lilies; a Tree or Pole
 
About Asherah:  Asherah, a Canaanite goddess of moral atrength, offers to lend support and insight when we are faced with inequality or overwhelming odds.  In art, she is often depicted simply as an upright post supporting the temple.  This is a fitting representation, since her name means "straight."  Traditionally, Asherah is a mother figure often invoked at planting time, embodying a kind of benevolent, fertile energy that can reinforce just efforts and good intentions.  Beyond this she is also an oracular goddess, specifically for predicting the future.
 
To Do Today:  In Israel, this festival commemorates Esther's strength and compassion in pleading with King Ahasuerus to save her people held captive In Persia.  It is a time of prayer when one looks to the divine to instill similar positive attributes within us.  For help in this quest, we turn to Asherah with this simple prayer:
 
Lady, make me a instrument of kindness and
mercy; let my words be gentle and true, my actions
motivated by insight and fairness.  Where there is
prejudice, let me be the bearer of tolerance.  Where
there is uncertainly, let me share your vision.
Where there is disharmony, let me sow love.
Amen
 
Plant a tree today to remember Asherah, and tend it often.  As you do, you tend her attributes in your heart.

Oba-thumb.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 26
Ku-omboko (Zambia)
Oba

Themes: 
Protection; Manifestation; Movement; Energy; Restoration; Flexibility
 
Symbol:  Water
 
About Oba:  Oba is the Nigerian and Santarian goddess of rivers, which figuratively represent the flow of time and life.  Turn to her for assistance in learning how to "go with the flow," or when you need to inspire some movement in sluggish projects or goals.
 
To Do Today:  This holiday's  name literally translates as "getting out of the water."  Due to the annual flood cycle, people must make their way to higher ground this date.  So consider what type of figurative hot water you've gotten into lately.  Oba stands ready to get you onto safe footing.  To encourage her aid, take a glass half filled with hot water, then slowly pour in cold water up to the rim, saying,
 
Bt Oba's coursing water, let ____ improve,
to higher and safer ground, my spirit move.
 
Drink the water to internalize the energy.
Oba can abide in any body of flowing water, including your tap or shower.  WHen you get washed up or do the dishes today, invoke her energy by uttering this chant (mentally or verbally):
 
Oba, flow - blessings bestow,
Pour, pour, pour...restore, restore, restore
 
Let Oba's spiritual water refresh your energy and your magick.

Laka.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 27
Cherry Blossom Festival (Hawaii)
Laka
 
Themes:  Traditions; Heritage; Weather; Arts
 
Symbols:  Lei Flowers; Dance; Yellow
 
About Laka:  Laka is the Hawaiian goddess of Hula, through which the myths, legends, and histories of the Hawaiian people are kept intact.  Today she charges us with the sacred duty of collecting the treasure of our personal legacies and recording them for sharing with future generations.
In stories, Laka is the sister of Pele (the volcano goddess) and a nature goddess who can be invoked for rain.  Artistic renditions show her wearing yellow garments, bedecked with flowers and always dancing.
 
To Do Today:  The cherry blossoms of this festival in Hawaii are spiritual, not real, symbolizing the power of tradition among the predominantly Japanese community.  On this day people gather together and honor their heritage by participating in martial arts, Japanese dances, weaving, and arts competitions. So, if there's any art or craft you learned from an elder in your family, take the time to display that craft or work on it today to commemorate Laka's attributes.
If possible, get together with member of your family and begin crating a family journal that will record all the important events in your lives.  Cover the journal with yellow paper dabbed with fragrant oil to invoke Laka's tending care on the sacred documents.

Luonnotar_small.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 28
Kalevala Day (Finland)
Luonnotar
 
Themes:  Creativity; Tradition; Fertility; Beginnings
 
Symbols:  Egg; East Wind; Poetry
 
About Luonnotar:  A Finno-Ugric creatrix, Luonnotar closes the month of February with a abundance of creative, fertile energy.  Her name means "daughter of earth," and according to legend she nurtured the cosmic eggs from which the sun, moon, and stars developed.  In the Kalevada, Luonnotar is metaphorically represented as the refreshing east wind - the wind of beginnings.  She also created the first bard, Vainamolen.
 
To Do Today:  The Kalevala is the epic poem of more than twenty thousand verses that recounts the history and lore of the Finnish people, ballad with her energy.  If there's anything in your life that needs an inventive approach or ingenious nudge, stand in an easterly wind today and let Luonnotar's power store your personal muse.  If the wind doesn't cooperate, stand instead in the breeze created by an fan facing west!
To generate fertility or internalize a little extra resourcefulness as a coping mechanism in any area of your life, make eggs part of meal today.  Cook them sunny-side-up for a "sunny" disposition, over easy to motivate easy transitions, or hard boiled to strengthen your backbone!

lilith1.jpg image by gemsylb
 
February 29
Leap Year (various locations)
Lilith
 
Themes:  Freedoms; Courage; Playfulness; Passion; Pleasure; Sexuality
 
Symbol:  Apple
 
About Lilith:  In Hebrew legends, Lilith is a dangerously beautiful goddess who refused to subordinate herself to Adam, feeling she was created as an equal.  This makes Lilith perhaps the first true liberationist, and she resolves to make modern life similarly equal for all people.  She also boldly instructs us to stand up for what we believe in, unbridled and courageous, no matter the cost.  According to legend, Lilith was turned away from paradise for her "crime," and she has been depicted in art as a demon.
 
To Do Today:  Leap Year day occurs every four years to keep our calendar in sync with the solar year.  Customarily, women break loose today, asking men out or proposing marriage.  In today's liberal society, actions like this aren't overly surprisnig.  Nonetheless, Lilith charges us with the duty of ever seeking after equality, not just for women but for all of earth's people.  If there's someone you've wronged with presupposition or prejudice, make amends today.
To internalize Lilith's fairness, bravery, or exuberant lustiness, eat an apple today.  Quite literally take a bite out of life, and enjoy some daring activity to its fullest without fear or guilt.  Like, Lilith, you are the master of your destiny.
