August is a busy month! Here in South Florida, Theatokos Temple is holding a Full Moon and Nemoralia Celebration at the Red Tent in Boca Raton. If you are local, please join us.
As a Priestess of Hekate, August 13 is a mindful evening and one dedicated to propitiating the Goddess Hekate. I will be preparing a traditional Hekate Supper so stay tuned into the blog for some great articles this month around that ritual and Hekate.
You can check progress on the Goddess Calendar – we are getting the months up! If you have anything to add, please leave a comment!
