“Summer is the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all’s right with the world.” Ada Louise Huxtable
Goddess is opulent and profuse. Berries are thick and dripping off the vines. Gardens give forth ample sustenance daily. The air is heavy with humidity and we lift our faces eagerly at the hint of a breeze. Goddess is capricious now as well, bringing storms to break through the heat and shake things up. We are literally in the thick of it and Goddess is celebrating Her heyday. More, more, more, She demands, creating, dancing, transforming, and manifesting through every aspect of nature. For these summer months, we focus on being outdoors, gathering in community, vacations, moments spent soaking in the sun. There is an urgency to experience it all NOW.
Can you hear Goddess as She spins past? “Catch me if you can!” – the days are whirling past, savor them!
July is an exciting month for me, personally, as I am packing up my life in South Florida and returning Delaware and the Northeast permanently! I leave at the end of July and in August will be settling back “home”, as Delaware is where I was born and raised. I left 23 years ago, so this is quite a homecoming for me. The anticipation of a full four seasons and being present in the seasonal cycle of Goddess thrills me to my toes! As well, I am lucky to be joining a wonderful community of women and contributing to more Goddess events in that area. And don’t even get me started on the nature AND rivers (for Oshun!) that will be surrounding me. I am so blessed and excited to begin this new journey and chapter in my life.
MotherHouse Goddess Shop will be closing in July and re-opening in September, but if there is anything that you need, check out Red Wholistic and Daughters of Isis for ritual supplies and Goddess goodies.
Mystery School of the Goddess has new classes, self study courses, and so many free offerings! Take some time this summer to pursue a new course of study, join us for an event, or connect with Goddess in a new way. PLUS, take advantage of the Mystery School of the Goddess giveaway happening each week in July and August!
Finally, MotherHouse of the Goddess is celebrating our third year birthday this month! I can hardly believe that much time has passed. I am in awe and gratitude for the amazing tribe that has gathered to support us. THANK YOU to all of you! THANK YOU.
Wishing you a Blessed Month and Happy Summer!
