March.jpg picture by gemsylb
 
March
 
Britons call March a "loud and strong" month because of its blustery nature.  Before the calendar changed to the persent system, the new year took place during March, likely due to the official beginning of spring, which is ushered in by March's winds.
In terms of magickal energy, think growth and prosperity!  Everything that dwells on the planet is showing signs of life and fruitfulness.  Let the Goddess inspire your spirit similarly.  Other characteristics for March include cultivating the spirit of adventure and fertility, and focusing on personal maturity in any area of your life.

bona_dea3-1.gif image by gemsylb
 
March 1
Martonella (Rome)
Bona Dea
 
Themes:  Femininity; Blessings; Fertility; Divination; Abundance
 
Symbols:  Vines; Wine
 
About Bona Dea:  Bona Dea name literally means "good goddess."  Her energies come into our lives at the outset of this month, offering all good things, especially fertility and a greater appreciation of the goddess within each of us.
Traditionally, Bona Dea is a women's goddess who received offerings of wine in exchange for prophetic insights during her observances.
 
To Do Today:  On March 1, February was excorted out of Rome with a flourish of adaptable activities.  Exchange sweet gifts as the Romans did to ensure yourself of a sweeter future.  Greet a friend with Bona Dea's name to invoke her blessings on them.  Put up a grapvine wreath fashioned like a heart (or othe symbol of something you need), and leave a glass of wine on your altar to honor Bona Dea's presence in your home and your life.
In Rome, female slaves would get this day off, and the head of the house would wait on them.  In modern times this equates to switching roles for a day at home.  Whoever normally gets up and fixes breakfast gets to sleep in, whoever normally does chores get to go out and socializes, and so forth.  Bona Dea appreciates the considerate gesture as much as you do and will rain her goodness upon your home.

Semele-1.jpg image by gemsylb
 
March 2
Anthesaria (Greece)
Semele
 
Themes:  Fertility; Grounding; Joy; Playfulness; Pleasure; Youthfulness
 
Symbols:  Wine or Grape Juice; Soil
 
About Semele:  In Greek mythology, Semele is a young earth goddess who, in mortal form, gave birth to the ever-exuberant party animal Dionysus (the god of wine).  Today Semele flows into our lives bringing spring's zeal, joy, and playfulness carefully balanced, with the exhortation to keep one foot firmly on terra firma.  Semele's name translates as "land," giving her additional associations with fertility and grounding.
Semele became a goddess after insisting on seeig Zeus (Dionysus' father) in his full glory.  This killed Semele, but Zeus rescued her from Hades and made her a goddess.
 
To Do Today:  A three-day celebration began in Athens around this time to celebrate spring.  The first day of the observance was called the "opening of the casks"! So, if you have a favorite wine, today is definitely the time to take it out and enjoy it with some friends.  Toast to Semele for giving the world a wine god who lives in every drop poured!
To "grow" any of Semele's virtues within yourself, find a small planter, some rich soil, and a flowering seed.  Name the seed after that characteristic, and water it with a bit of wine or grape juice.  If you use diligent care and maintain a strong focus on your goal, when the seed blossoms that energy should show signs of manifesting in your life.

Tara-1.jpg image by gemsylb
 
March 3
Anniversay of
Pioneer 10 Launching (United States)
Tara
 
Themes:  Universal Unity; Peace; Cooperation; Destiny; Energy; Spirituality
 
Symbol:  Star
 
About Tara:  In Hindu mythology, Tara is a star goddess who encompasses all time and the spark of life.  She extends this energy to us, fulfilling our spiritual hunger.  In so doing, Tara strenghens our understanding of the Universe and its mysteries and gives us a glimpse of our destiny.
Tara's name literally means "star."  In works of art she is depicted as beautiful as the silver turret points of the night sky, young and playful.  From her celestial home Tara challenges us to live life fully no matter the day or season, looking to the stars and our hearts to guide us.
 
To Do Today:  I cannot help but believe that Tara was standing by whispering in scientists' ears as they launched Pioneer 10 into space on this date in 1972, bearing a message of peace to anyone who might find it.  In this spirit of exploration and hope, today is definitely a time to reach for the stars!  Try something new or set some bold goals for yourself.
If you live in an area where you can observe the night sky, go out tonight and absorb Tara's beauty firsthand.  As you watch, let the starlight and Tara's energy trickle into your soul.  Make a wish on the first star that appears, and then find concrete ways to help that wish come true.  If you see a falling star, it is Tara coming to join you!

Kishi-1.jpg image by gemsylb
 
March 4
Omizuturi (Japan)
Kishi-Mujin
 
Themes: Protection from Evil; Meditation; Balance; Banishing
 
Symbols:  Water; Pine
 
About Kishi-Mujin:  Kishi-mujin is a mother goddess figure in Japan who wraps us in arms of warmth and safety, as welcoming as the spring sun.  She is a compassionate lady whose goal is to bring life into balance by replacing sadness with joy, fear with comfort, and darkness with light.
 
To Do Today:  Follow the Japanese custom, observe this day as a time of reflection: a time to meditate, recite sacred verses, and present offerings of water for blessing.  Additionally, on this day, Buddhist monks shake sparks off a pine branch for people to catch.  Each ash acts as a ward against evil influences.  A safer alternative for banishing negativity or malintended energies is simply burning pine incense or washing your living space with a pine-scented cleaner.
To invoke Kishi-mujin's presence in your life, find a small-needled pine twig and dip it in a water.  Spinkle this water into your aura, saying,
 
Away all negativity, darkness flee!
Kishi-mujin's light shines within me!
 
Dry the twig and use it as incense for protection anytime you need it.
Finally, before going to bed tonight, honor Kishi-mujin by stopping to meditate about your life for a few minutes.  Are you keeping your spirituality and everyday duties in balance?  Are your priorities in order?  If not, think of creative, uplifting ways to restore the symmetry.

Tashmit-1.jpg image by gemsylb
 
March 5
World Day of Prayer
Tashmit
 
Themes:  Prayer; Blessing; Unity; Hope
 
Symbol:  Folded Hands
 
About Tashmit:  The goddess is timeless and eternal, and she has many faces with which she conveys the concepts of truth and beauty to the world's people.  Tashmit, the Chaldean goddess of wisdom and teaching, in particular, stands ready today.  Her name means "hearing"; it is she who listens intently to our prayers.
 
To Do Today:  On the first Friday in March, people in over 170 countries join in prayer, and the goddess asks that we do similarly.  Prayer is something that seems to have gone by the wayside in our "instant" world.  Yet it takes only a moment to honor the sacred.  This prayer is but one example; change or adapt it liberally suit your needs and vision;
 
Lady of Wisdom, Tashmit, I come to you for guidance.  Shine
on my path today that I might see others in an equal light, that
I might speak with truth and kindness, that I might walk the Path of
Beauty with a loving heart and peaceful spirit.
Hear the voices of your people raised together today in oneness;
hear our prayers.  Let us find unity in diversity; heal the world; let us
know peace and guard it as scared.  With a thankful heart.
So Mote it Be

WhaleGoddess-1.jpg image by gemsylb
 
March 6
Whale Festival (California)
Whale Goddess
 
Themes:  Nature; Meditation; Rebirth; Movement
 
Symbols:  Water; Whale
 
About the Whale Goddess:  In Arabic tradition, the Whale Goddess swallowed Jonah, neatly giving him time to consider his life and actions seriously before his figurative rebirth.  Let's hope she doesn't have go that far to get our attention this month (or anytime, for that matter).
In some stories, the earth rests on this goddess's back, and earthquakes result when she gets upset and shakes her tail.  Symbolically, when your life seems on shaky ground, consider what this goddess is trying to tell you!
 
To Do Today:  Around this time of year in Northern California, people examine the coastline with renewed interest and anticipation.  They're watching the annual whale migration - a breathtaking sight.  Since many of us cannot experience this firsthand, consider the whale as a magickal symbol instead.  The gods ride whales to carry messages to the mortal world.  Witches ride them to bear their magick on the water.    In both instances the whale carries something - either to your heart or toward a goal.  Use this image im meditations for movement, and consider the symbolism if whales show up in your dreams tonight.
If possible, visit an aquarium and watch whales there.  Or send a donation to an accredited facility to give something back to the Whale Goddess and her children.

Goddess Chih Nu     Phra Buddha Bat Fair (Thailand)
 
Themes:  Arts; Creativity; Tradition; Excellence
 
Symbols:  Woven items; thread or yarn; home crafts; clouds; Lyres
 
About Chih Nu:  In China and surrounding regions, Chih Nu's name means, "weaving
                        woman."  According to myths, ChihNu's talents in this art are so great
                        that she can weave seamless garments for the gods.  From her
                        heavenly domain in the constellation Lyre, she acts like a refreshening
                        spring wind to inspire excellence in our inherited arts and crafts.
 
To Do Today:   This annual Thai festival features folk dancing and traditional
                         handcrafts in honor of Buddha's footprint, which is enshrined
                         nearby.  Generally, it is a time of rejoice in Thai tradition, so if
                         you have a Thai restaurant in the neighborhood, by all means
                         indulge yourself, saying a brief prayer of thanks to the provider
                         of your feast--Chih Nu. 
                         To make a Chih Nu-inspired  creativity charm, take three strands
                         of yellow  thread or yarn (yellow is the color of inventiveness). 
                         Braid these together so that the strands cross four times, saying,
                                                One, Chih Nu's power absorbs;
                                                 two, inside the magick's stored;
                                                 three, the magick's alive in me;
                                                 four, bear Chih Nu's creativity!
                         Carry this when you need more ingenious energy, or leave it near
                         your artistic endeavors so they can absorb Chih Nu's compelling
                         excellence.
                         Finally, wear woven or handmade items to honor Chih Nu's talents
                         today.

Hu Tu
Mother Earth Day ( China)
 
Themes:           Earth; Nature; Ecology; Fertility
 
Symbols:          Globe; Soil; All Natural Items; Marbel
 
About Hu Tu:   Literally "Empress Earth" in Chinese mythology, this 
                       goddess embodies and personifies the earth in spring
                       and its fertility.  Through her we can learn how to live
                       abundantly, while maintaining a reciprocity with 
                       nature.  Hu Tu also teaches us how to see and 
                       integrate nature's lessons.
 
To Do Today:  According to tradition, this is the birthday of Hu Tu,
                       in form of Mother Earth.  Celebrate it as you might
                       any birthday, with a little twist.  Make a fertilizer cake
                       for the earth and light a candle on it.  Blow out the
                       candle, making a wish to Hu Tu for earth's revitali-
                       zation.  Then, give the fertilizer to the soil to start the
                       processor!
                      This celebration bears many similarities to Earth Day
                       in the West, so organize litte patrols,  educate yourself
                      on recycling techniques, take a long walk to truly enjoy
                       Hu Tu's beauty.  As you walk, feel the scaredness of
                       the ground beneath your feet and say a silent prayer of
                       thankfulness to Hu Tu for her care and providence.
                       Finally, make yourself a Hu Tu charm that stimulates
                       grounding and draws figurative or literal fertility to
                       you.  Find any marble (blue is best) to represent
                       Hu Tu's foundational energy.  Carry the charm when-
                       ever you feel flighty or need to be more productive.

Aditi    Butter Festival (Tibet)
 
Themes:        Luck; Change; Perspective; Time;  Protection;
                    Prosperity; Overcoming Obstacles; Divination.
 
Symbols:       Butter; the Number Twelve; Anything that
                    Changes Shape.
 
About Aditi:   Aditi means "unfettered."  In India she represents the
                    infinite sky and the boundlessness of time and space.
                    She offers us this expansive perspective--one in which
                    we are citizens of eternity.  Additionally, Aditi is a pro-
                    tector who aids in averting or surmounting difficulties.
                    In regional prayers, people refer to her as the ever-
                    young protectress who guides life's boat safely through
                    the roughest waters.
 
To Do Today: Buddhists believe that the world is transient--that only
                      spirit is eternal.  The Butter Festival illustrates this
                      concept with huge butter statues of heroes that are
                      torn, distributed to participants for luck, or tossed in a
                      river to melt away into time.  Following this custom,
                      take out an ice cube.  Relax and watch the ice as it
                      melts.  Consider:  Is the ice still there, even though it's
                      gone?  Similarly, does the spirit exist outside its
                      "shape"--the body?
                      For a less ponderous way of honoring Aditi, light
                      twelve candles (yellow is ideal) and watch the flame.
                      Hindus use butter lamps instead, but this is far easier!
                      If the flames appear dark red, your spirit is filled with
                      strife.  Mottled flames indicate weakness, tall flames
                      symbolize mental clarity, crescent shaped ones reveal
                      a peaceful soul, and round ones proclaim magickal
                      power.

Daedala (Greece)
Hera
 
Themes:          Love; Romance; Forgiveness; Humor
 
Symbols:         Oak;  Myrrh; Poppy
 
About Hera:     Hera rules the earth, its people, and the hearts of those
                       people.  Using passion and creativity, Hera nudges
                       star-crossed lovers together, charperones tryst, and
                       helps struggling marriages with a case of spring
                       twitterpation!
                       Legend tells us that Hera refused to return to Zeus's
                       bed because of a quarrel.  Zeus, however had a plan.
                       He humorously dressed up a wooden figure to look
                       like a bride and declared he was going to marry.  Hera
                       tore off the dummy's clothes and discovered the ruse,
                       she was so amused and impressed by Zeus's ingenuity
                       that she forgave him.
 
To Do Today:  Ancient Greeks honored Hera and Zeus's reconciliation
                       today, often in the company of old oak trees.  Small
                       pieces of fallen wood are collected to symbolize the
                       divinities, then burned on the ritual fire to keep love
                       warm.  To mirror this custom, find a fallen branch and
                       burn a small part of it as an offering to Hera.  Keep
                       the rest to use as a goddess image year-round, burning
                       a few slivers whenever love needs encouragement.
                       Present someone you love or admire with a poppy
                       today to symbolically bestow Hera's blessings on your
                       relationship.  If you have a loved one away from
                       home, burn some myrrh incense in front of their
                       picture so Hera can watch over them and keep that
                       connection strong.

Nyambinyambi (West Africa)
Hara Ke
 
Themes:             Spring; Weather; Providence; Harvest; Growth
 
Symbols:            Seeds; Soil; Rain; Water; Dragon Images
 
About Hara Ke:   An African goddess of sweet water (which also
                          equates with the gentle spring rains)  Hara Ke
                          comes into our lives and spring with gentle, growth-
                          inspiring refreshment.  According to legend she lives
                          under the river Niger with two dragons in
                          attendance, caring for the souls who await rebirth,
                          just as earth awaits its reawakening with spring.
 
To Do Today:     People in Namibia pull out all their garden tools and
                          seeds and bless them today before the sowing
                          season starts.  This ensures a good harvest and
                          plentiful rains, the water of Hara Ke's spirit.  If you
                          garden or tinker with  window pots, this tradition
                          holds merit.  Just sprinkle your tools and seeds with
                          a little spring water or rainwater, then visualize the
                          seeds being filled with pale green light (like new
                          sprouts).
                          Alternatively, sprinkle your own aura, first going
                          counterclockwise to wash away residual sickness
                          or tension, then going clockwise to invoke Hara Ke.
                          As you sprinkle the water, say,
 
                             Hara Ke, renew in me a sense of refreshed ability.
                             To my spirit, growth impart; make your home in
                              my heart.
              
                          If you're pressed for time you can recite this in your
                          morning shower or while doing the laundry (during
                          the rinse cycle).  The latter allows you to figuratively
                          don Hara Ke's attributes with your clothing when-
                          ever you need them.

Eagle Dance (New Mexico)
White Shell Woman
 
Themes:  Magic; Overcoming; Spirituality; Freedom; Hope;
Success; Protection; Joy; Dreams
 
Symbols:  Eagle; Rattle; White
 
About White Shell Woman:  In Native American traditions,
White Shell Woman came to earth bearing elemental blankets
and the sunshine of protection, dreams, and renewed hope.
When she arrived a rainbow appeared, banishing sadness with
the promise of eventually reuniting humankind with the gods.
Today she renews this promise to us, whispering her message
on March's winds and bearing it on the wings of an eagle.
 
To Do Today:  Sometime in spring, the Pueblos of New Mexico hold
an Eagle Dance to bring rain and ensure the tribe's success in difficult
situations.  The mimelike movements of the dance unite the dancers
with the Eagle spirit, connecting them with the sacred powers.  To
adapt this in your own life, grab a feather duster and you clean up the
house!
If you have young children in your life, work with them on a Shell Woman anti-nightmare blanket or happiness charm.  Take four strips
of cloth in elemental colors, or seven in the colors of the rainbow.  Sew them together to form a blanket or portable swatch.  Bless the charm saying:
 
Love and joy within each seam brings me only happy dreams;
Shell Woman, shine through the night; keep me safe till dawn's
first light.

Buergsonndeg (Luxembourg)
 
Nerthus
 
Themes:  Spring; Cycles; Health; Energy; Peace; Prosperity
 
Symbols:  Fire; Chariot; Soil
 
About Nerthus:  This Germanic earth goddess welcomes the season with her presence.  She was so important in Danish regions that no weapons or iron tools could be left out during her festivals, because that was thought to invoke her displeasure.  During spring rites, her statue was covered on a chariot until the priest determined she had arrived to over-see the festivities.
 
To Do Today:  Traditionally, today is spent before a bonefire that greets the sun and banishes the last vestiges of winter.  So, take down your heavy winter curtains, and let some light into the house!  This restores Nerthus's positive energy and expels any lingering sicknesses.  If it's cloudy out, turn on some lights, don dazzling-colored clothing, and find ways to brighten up your living space with flowers and decorations that speak of earth (Nerthus) and spring's beauty.
Another customary activity is turning the soil, mixing it with an offering of milk, flour and water.  Even if you don't have a garden, turn a little dirt near your apartment or home and leave a similar gift.  This action rejoices in Nerthus's awakening and draws the goddess's peace and prosperity to your residence.  To take a little of that same blessing with you, just collect a bit of the soil-milk mixture in a container and put it wherever you need peace and prosperity the most.

Ghanaian New Year

Ala
 
Themes: Luck; Harvest; Joy; Cleansing; Death; Cycle
 
Symbols:  Yams; Crescent Moon
 
About Ala:  This West African earth-goddess represents the full cycle of earth's seasons from birth to death, gently reminding us that spring is transitory--so enjoy it now!  Serious crimes are an abhorrence to Ala, and the spirits of the dead go to her womb to find rest.  Votive candles are a suitable offering for this goddess figure.
 
To Do Today:  When you get up this morning, light any candle to welcome both Ala and spring.  If possible, include yams in your dinner meal to internalize the joy and good fortune Ala brings with the warmer weather.  Bless your yams by putting your hands (palms down) over them, focusing on your goals, and saying,
 
Ala, be welcome.  In this your sacred food, place
the energy of happiness, luck, and protection for
the months ahead.  So Mote it Be.
 
The people of of Ghana believe in celebrating the new year over thirteen days instead of one.  During this time they dance to banish
evil, honor their dead ancestors, encourage serpendipity, and petition Ala for a good harvest season.  Ala's shrines and other sacred places
are bathed on the day of festivities to wash away the old, along with bad memories.  For us this equates to dusting off our altars, bathing any god or goddess images we have, and generally cleansing away old energies so Ala can refresh us.

Anna Furrinna Festival
(Rome)
 
Themes:  Cycles; Peace; Kindness; Grounding; Longevity
 
Symbols:  Circular items (rings, wheels, wreaths); Wine
 
About Anna Furrinna:  Anna Furrinna, like Ala, symbolizes the entire year's cycle. Even her name translates as "enduring year."  Legend tells us that Anna was once a real woman who showed benevolence to refugees from the Roman aristocracy by giving them food until peace was established.  It is this gentle spirit with which Anna comes into our lives, offering the spiritual harmony engendered by random acts f kindness.
 
To Do Today:  Roman honored Anna Furrinna around this date because March was the first month of the Roman calendar.  In true Roman fashion--that looks for any excuse for a party--they spent the day praying that Anna would let them live one more year for each cup of wine drunk this day.  Wine (or grape juice) remains a suitable libation to Anna Furrinna when asking for longevity.  As you pour the liquid, say,
 
A long life of health, blessed from winter to spring,
Anna Furrinna, longevity bring!
 
To encourage inner peace and security in your life, keep a pinch of soil-wine mixture in any round container as a charm.  Open the container and put the blend under your feet when you feel your foundations shaking, or when stress wreaks havoc in your heart.
Wearing any ring, belt, or other circular item today stimulates a greater understanding of Anna's cycles in nature and your life.

Holi (India)
Gauri
 
Themes:  Spring; Protection; Fertility; Harvest; Beauty; Humor; Youthfulness; Wishes; Equality
 
Symbols:  Balsam; Golden-colored Items; Milk; Mirrors; Lions
 
About Gauri:  This fertile Hindu goddess extends springlike youth, beauty, fairness, and tenderness into our lives.  Gauri has a sympathetic ear for all  humans needs and wishes.  In works of art she is depictd as a fair maiden, attended by lions and bearing balsam and a mirror.  She was born of a milky sea, and her name translates as "golden one" indicating a connection with the sun.  She is offered rice to ensure a good rice crop.
 
To Do Today:  Holi is India's most colorful festival, filled with Gauri's equitable spirit.  It celebrates an epic tale in which the sun (Gauri) is freed from a god's mouth by gettnig him to laugh!  Customarily, caste restrictions are shed today in order for people to simply have fun.  Everyone squirts colored water at one another, and by the end of the day, no one can tell who is a servant and who is a king!  This translates into a good-humored water-balloon toss.  Focus on a goal while you play.  When a balloon breaks, it releases Gauri's youthful joy and productivity into your life.
Hindu custom suggest eating sweets to generate Gauri's beauty and pleasantness in your spirit today.  Or, pour her a libation of milk while making a wish for something you'd like to "harvest" in your life.  Hang balsam in your home to foster Gauri's fairness in your family's interactions.

March 17
 
Ostara
Easter (date and location vary)
 
Themes:  Fertility; Rebirth
SymbolL:  Egg
About Ostara: THe Teutonic goddess Ostara presides over personal renewal, fertility, and fruitfulnesss.  Now that spring is here, it's a good time to think about renewal in your own life.  Ostara represents spring's life force and earth's renewal. Depicted as lovely as the season itself, in earlier writings she was also the goddess of dawn, a time of new beginnings (spring being the gigurative dawn of the year).  One of Ostara's names variaitons, Esotara, slowly evolved into the modern name for this holiday, Easter.
 
To Do Today:  All spells and food that include eggs are appropriate today.  If you've been ill, try an old folk spell that recommends carrying an egg                 for twenty-four, then burying it to bury the sickness.  To improve fertility of all kinds, make eggs for breakfast ast dawn's first light, the best time to invoke Ostara.  As you eat, add an incantation like this one,
Ostara, bring to me fertility;
with this egg now bless my fruitfulness!
 
Or, if you're feeling down and need a little extra hope, get up before the sun rises and release a symbol of your burden to the earth by dropping or burying it.  Don't look at it.  Turn your back and leave it there.  Turn toward the horizon as the sun rises, and harvest the first flower you see.  Dry it, carry it with you often as a charm to preserve hope in your heart.

Sheelah's Day (Ireland)
Sheelah-Na-Gig
 
Themes:  Fertility; Sexuality; Protection; Passion; Femininity
 
Symbols:  Nakedness; Lust-inspiring Scents; Whiskey
 
About Sheelah-Na-Gig:  The image of this Irish goddess of ferility tell us much about the unbridled nature of feminine passion that Sheelah inspires with springlike whimsy.  She is shown smiling broadly, holding her legs wide open, completely naked.  Nonetheless, this is not irresponsible lust; it is the gate of life through which we all pass.  Interestingly enough, Sheelah's image, in an amulet, offers protection, too-perhaps she was the first goddess of safe sex?
 
To Do Today:  Sheelah's Day is celebrated in true Irish fashion by drinking abundant whiskey and drowning a shamrock in the last glass comsumed, to end the festivities.  This particular custom denotes the idea of consuming one's luck, increasing fecundity, and internalizing the goddess's protective energies before the day is over.  So if you can tolerate whisky, toast Sheelah, take a sip, and warm up your passion!  Otherwise, offer her a libation of whiskey, asking for her energy to be likewise liberated in your body.
If you have a significant other, one of the best ways to honor Sheelah is through passionate encounters that are balanced with wisdom and foresight. Take a condom and bless it, saying,
 
Sheelah, my hunger see, let my body love freely.
But keep us safe, fertility bind,
no matter our haste, keep protection in mind.
 
Carry this condom with you to your tryst.

Sacaea (Babylon)
Anaitis
 
Themes:  Spring; Relationships; Equality; Fertility; Sexuality
 
Symbols:  Green Branches; Water
 
About Anaitis:  This Babylonian goddess of fertility embraces the attributes of fruitful, warm waters that flow from the celestial realms into our lives, especially as the earth is renewed.  Her name translates as "humid immaculate one," and art shows her as a strong maiden who creates life and pours out blessings.  During the height of Babylonian civilization, she was also the patroness of civic prostitutes.
 
To Do Today:  This day marked the babylonian new year, during which time heaven and earth were considered married.  Therefore, this is an excellent date to plan a wedding, handfasting, or engagement, or just to spend time with someone you hold dear.  Bring them a small green branch from a tree to extend Anaitis's love and equality into your relationship.
Traditional roles are often reversed today to emphasize fairness between people. So, if you're normally passive in your interactions, become a little more aggressive.  As you do, feel how Anaitis's passion and energy flow through you.
To increase passion or sexual confidence, take a warm bath before meetting your partner.  Perhaps add some lusty aromatics to the water(cinnamon, vanilla, mint, or violet) to put you in the right frame of mind.  Let Anaitis's waters stimulate your skin and your interest, then enjoy!

Festival of Isis ( Egypt)
Isis
 
Themes:  Magick; Harvest; Dreams; Divination; Perspective;
Faithfullness; Love; Spirituality; Destiny
 
Symbols:  Blooodstone; Amethyst; Silver; Myrrh; Cedar; Hawk; Moon
 
About Isis:  One of the most complete goddess figures in history, Isis breathes on us with spring winds to revitalize and fulfill our spirits in every way.  Egyptians venerated Isis as the Queen of Sorcery,
Life of the Nile, Mother, Moon, and Protectress.  Isis taught humankind the basic skills necessary to build civilazations, and she came to represent the powerful attributes of faithfulness, love, inner beauty, oracular insight, and spiritual awareness (to name just a few).  She could also change her followers' destinies.
 
To Do Today:  Today was the spring harvest festival in Egypt, honoring the giver of life, Isis.  Put a bloodstone or amethyst in your pocket today to inspire any or all of Isis's characteristics in your soul and life.  If you have any silver or white clothing, wearing them will also foster Isis-centered energy, because these colors are associated with the moon.
One traditional activity today is fortune-telling, an art under Isis's dominion.  To encourage visionary dreams from her, put some rose petals under your pillow before going to bed, and burn some myrrh or jasmine incense.  Keep a dream diary handy, and write your impression immediately upon waking so you won't lose the insight.

Sun Enters Aries (Various Locations)
Ishikore-Dome
 
Themes:  Arts; Excellence
 
Symbols:  Stone; Mirror
 
About Ishidore-Dome:  This Shinto goddess is the protectress of all stonecutters and smiths, having fashioned the mold from which an eight-petaled mirror was made for Amaterasu (the sun goddess).  The beauty of Ishikore-Dome's creation was such that Amaterasu came out of hiding, bringing spring's wonderful sunshine with her!  Similarly, Ishikore-Dome temps us to come out of our home-cave today, explore and express our talents, and enjoy the warmer weather.
 
To Do Today:  The sign of Aries is said to produce a feisty, courageous spirit, which is exactly what it takes sometimes to stop being the proverbial wallflower and try new things.  If there's an art form you've always wanted to try, or one that you love but hesitate to try because of preceived shortcomings, let Ishikore-Dome's encouraging energy nudge you into action today.  Remember, Buddhists believe that developing artistic proficiency comes down to three things: practice, practice, practice!
 To conduct yourself with great courage and a unique artistic flair, make a simple Ishikore-Dome charm from a small mirror.  Face-down on the mirror, glue a symbol of the area in your life in which you need more creativity, mastery, or mettle and carry it with you.  This symbolically reflects your desire to the goddess.

ButterFly Maiden
Vernal  Equinox
 
Themes:  Rebirth; Beauty; Fertility; Balance; Freedom; Nature
 
Symbols:  Butterflies; Seedlings; Rainwater: Spring Flowers
 
About Butterfly Maiden:  In Hopi tradition, the Butterfly Maiden is a kachina (spirit) who rules the springtime and the earth's fertility.  Butterfly Maiden flutters into your life today to reconnect us with  nature and to help us rediscover that graceful butterfly within each of us - the one that effortless rises about problems, making the world its flower.
 
To Do Today:  In magickal traditions, the equinox celebrates the sun's journey back to predominance in the sky and the return of fertility to the earth.  It is a joyous fire festival when the elements are in balance, giving us the opportunity to like wise balance our lives. If anything has held you back from real spiritual growth, now is the time to banish it and move on.  Visualize yourself as the caterpillar who becomes the butterfly, then let the Butterfly  Maiden give you wings with which to overcome anything!
To inspire Butterfly Maiden's beauty within and without, wash your face and chakras (near pulse points as well as at the top of the head, in the middle of the forehead, over the heart, near the groin, behind the knees, and at the bottom of the feet) with rainwater first thing in the morning (dawn is best).  Go outside afterward and toss some flower petals into a spring breeze, saying:
 
Butterfly Maiden, liberate me;
let my mind and spirit ever be free!
The winds will carry your wish to heaven.

Marzenna (Poland)
 
Themes:  Spring; Weather; Protection; Winter; Death; Rebirth; Cycles; Change; Growth
 
Symbols:  Doll (poppet); Water (including ice and snow)
 
About Marzenna:  The Polish goddess for whom this holiday is named represents an odd combination of winter, death, and the fruit field's growth and fertility.  As such, she oversees the earth's transition from death to rebirth and likewise oversees the transitions we wish to make in our lives.
 
To Do Today:  Marzenna is a Polish spring festival during which an effigy of Marzenna is tossed into a river to overcome her wintery nature and ensure that there will be no floods that year.  This tradition is likely an antecedent of ancient river sacrifices made to appease the water spirits.  Following suit, resolutely throw a biodegradable image of something you wish to overcome this season into any moving water source (even your toilet!).  Let Marzenna carry it away, slowly breaking down that negative energy and replacing it with personal growth.  Burying an image has the same effect.
To envoke Marzenna's protection until next winter, write your name and birthdate on a piece of paper and freeze it in an ice cube.  Keep the cube in a safe place in the back of your freezer to keep yourself surrounded by Marzenna's safe barrier.  Melt the ice cube later in the year if you need a boost of spring's revitalizing energy.

Crane Watch (Nebraska)
Tamra
 
Themes:  Air; Earth; Nature; Health; Longevity; Devotion; Wishes; Relationships
 
Symbols:  Feathers; Birdseed
 
About Tamra:  In Hindu tradition, this goddess was the ancestor of all birds.  As such, she can teach us their special language, which often bears communications from the divine.  As the consort of the turtle god, Kashyapa, she also represents a potent union between earth and air elements.
 
To Do Today:  People in Nebraska spend six weeks watching the cranes who rest and feed here during the  migratory season.  This region of the United States boasts the largest group of sandhill cranes, about fifity thousand birds. Magickally speaking, these creatures represent health, longevity, and devotion.  Visualize a crane residing in your heart chakra anytime you feel your eyes straying from the one you love, or whenever you need improved well-being.
Birds offer numerous magickal  applications.  For warmth in a relationship, scatter feathers to the winds with your wish.  The birds will use the feathers in their nests, symbolically keeping your nest intact and affectionate.  Or, disperse birdseed while thinking of a question.  As the birds fly away, watch their movement.  Flight to the right indicates a positive response; to the left is negative. If the birds scatter, things are iffy.  If they fly straight up overhead , a heartfelt wish is being taken to Tamra.

Hilaria (Rome)
Cybelle
 
Themes:  Love; Health; Humor; Victory; Stength; Relationships
 
Symbols:  Pine; Meteorite Stone; Key
 
About Cybelle:  A black stone that personified this Roman earth goddess is credited with a successfull battle against Hannibal.  It is this strength, especially in difficult relationships, that Cybelle augments in us as this month draws to a close.
Legend tells us that Cybelle loved a shephed named Attis who went mad and killed himself.  Cybelle, in distress, asked Jupiter to retore him.  Jupiter responded by making Attis into a pine tree.  Symbolically, this allowed him to eternally embrace Cybelle, with his roots in the earth.
 
 
To Do Today:  Following the story of Cybelle and Attis, this festival begins in sorrow over Attis's death and ends in joy.  Today, laughter and fun activities are considered healthy.  So, rent a good comedy flick, go out to a comedy club, or do something that really uplifts you spirit.  Your laughter invokes Cybelle's attention and blessings.
To creat stability in a relationship, make this Cybelle charm:
Take an iron key (or piece of iron and any old key bound together).
Hold them in your power hand, visualizing the key being filled with radiant red light ( love's color).  Say,

Cybelle, let this key to our hearts be filled,
love and devotion here instilled.
 
Wear the key on a long chain so it rests over your heart chakra.

Slavic Plowing Season
Leshachikha
 
Themes:  Earth; Nature; Harvest; Birth; Protection
 
Symbols:  Soil; a Leaf; Seeds
 
About Leshachikha:  A goddess who sometimes appears as a Slavic forest, a wild animal, or a leaf, Leshachikha is said to have died in October and revived around this time in spring.  She fiercely protects her lands, not taking kindly to any who abuse them.  In this manner she teaches us about reciprocity and nature's fury.  Additional, Leshachikha's watchful aspects can be applied to our figurative lands--for example, safe guarding our homes.
 
To Do Today:  Whenever you need a little extra protective energy, pick up a fallen leaf and put it in your pocket.  This will keep Leshachikha's guardian powers with you all day.  To bring that protection into your home, wax the leaf to perserve it, symbolically sustaining the magickal energy forever.  Put the waxed leaf near your entryway or in the room where you spend the most time.
Go to a nearby field or park today and scatter some seed to Leshachikha to greet her as she awakens.  Today marks the beginning of the plowing season in Slavic regions.  Before this date the earth is regarded as pregnant.  It is a crime against nature and Leshachikha to plow the soil with iron tools when it still bears a magickal child (spring).  Once earth has given birth, the fields can then accept new seed, which the birds will also appreciate!

Smell the Breeze Day (Egypt)
Nut
 
Themes:  Air; Health
 
Symbols:  A Pot; Turquoise; Musk; a Star; Wind; Cow Images
 
About Nut:  This great Egyptian sky goddess bears a star-spangled belly that stretches over the earth like a protective atmosphere.  Today she breathes on us with a late-March zephyr bearing health and well-being.
Legend tells us that when Ra went to escape the earth, Nut offered her aid by becoming a hug cow who lifted him into heaven.  When Nut found herself dizzy from the effort, four gods rushed to her aid.  They later became the four pillars of creation--the four winds.
 
To Do Today:  If the weather permits, I highly recommmend a brisk, refreshing walk.  Breathe  deeply of the air, which has rejuvenating, healthy energies today.  As you exhale, repeat the goddess's name, Nut, and listen as she responds in the breeze.
Any type of wind magick honors Nut, and it is certainly fitting today.  If the wind blows from the west, sprinkle water into it for emotional healing.  If it blows from the east, toss a feather out so it can return to you with healthy outlooks.  If it blows from the north, sift a little soil into the wind to give fruitful foundations to a generating idea, and if it blows from the south, burn musk incense to manifest a vital energy and  a little passion.

Bali Temple Offering
Vac
 
Themes:  Purification; Protection; Offerings; Communication
 
Symbols:  The Spoken Word; Fresh Flowers
 
About Vac:  The Balinese/Hindu goddess of charms and incantations, Vac joins in today's celebrations usuing her powers to banish any lingering shadows or negativity from our lives.  Traditionally, Vac is present in any scared words that convey occult power or knowledge.  This is especially true of mantras that reaffirm, sustain, and shelter one's soul.
Artistic renderings reveal Vac as a mature, graceful woman bedecked in gold (an allusion to solar energy).  She sometimes also appears as a cow, which is her mother-goddess aspect.
 
To Do Today:  Bali legends say that hellish beings roam freely during this time of year, so everyone cleanses themselves and the land through magick and supplications.  In this spirit, periodic spiritual "house cleaning" is a good habit to get into, especially if you live in the city.  Leave an offering of flowers on your altar, saying Vac's name as you put them out.  This begins the process of purging any clinging bad vibes and restoring your home's sanctity.
Use noise makers to chase out any malintended magick or spirits.  Burn sweet-smelling incense to welcome Vac to your home, saying,
 
Vac, charge my speech with security so no darkness can dwell in my home or me.
Vac, be welcome in and through my words.  Let the magick e'er be heard!

AficanMujaji.jpg
 
Masquerade (Africa)
Mujaji
 
Themes:  Balance; Restoration; Weather; Cleansing; Fertility
 
Symbol:  Rainwater
 
About Mujaji:  Mujaji is an African rain goddess who exudes gently with fertility, or fiercely with cleansnig, depending on the need.  Her power and presence is so impressive that it led H. Rider Haggard to write the novel She, based on her cult.
 
To Do Today:  To purify any area and ready it for ritual, sprinkle rainwater as you move clockwise, saying,
 
Mujaji, flow through me;
Mujaji, cleanse me;
Mujaji, rain lightly here on all I love and hold dear.
 
To expel unproductive emotions (represented by the sky's tears), do the same thing, but move counterclockwise--this is the traditional direction of banishing. 
If it does rain gently today, it is a sign of blessing. Go out and skip dance, or sing in the rain (think Gene Kelly and a magickal twist).
This will renew your spirit and lift any dark clouds overshadowing your heart.
Africans observe this holiday as a time to reinstate symmetry in the world and in themselves.  They wear elaborate costumes to appease the divine, praying for the necessary rainfall to ensure rich soil, and consequently an abundant harvest.  To adapt this, pray to Mujaji to enrich the soil of your soul so that come the fall, you can harvest her productive nature.

March 30
Iranian New Year
Ahurani
 
Themes:  Luck; Health; Longevity; Harvest; Fertility
 
Symbols:  Water
 
About Ahurani:  Persians invoked Ahurani for prosperity, growth, fertility, and  insights through water libations, and we can do likewise.  Her companion, Ahur Mazda, is the Lord of Wisdom and helps us distinquish good from evil.
 
AhuraMazda.jpg
 
To Do Today:  People in Iran welcome the new year over thirteen days around the spring equinox with festivites similar to those of many other cultures, including rituals for portents, luck, health, and long life.  Rain today indicates Ahurani's pleasure and thus a good harvest.  Eating sweet wheat breads  or a nut compote today brings Ahurani's fortune and fertility.  It is also very important to go outside today; otherwise, all bad luck stays within the house!
Quaff a full glass of fresh, clean water today to internalize any of Ahurani's attributes you need.  Keep your mind strongly focused on your goal as you drink.  To improve this little spell, dye the water with food coloring to match the magick.  Use green for growth, abundance, and fertility, or blue for wisdom.  In keeping with Iranian custom, give a little of this water to the earth as you invoke Ahurani's blessings.
Wear water-toned clothing today (blues and purples) to help you flow easily through the day and to accent Ahurani's energy.
