September is a time of transitions … Goddess is preparing to shed the heavy fruits of the summer harvest and step into the release of Autumn. We see the changes reflected throughout September; night comes a bit earlier and shadows stretch a bit longer. The fiery Goddess of summer is shifting to the cooler, more contemplative Goddess of Autumn. And, of course, the fall festivals and celebrations are all beginning this month.
I am personally delighted to be back in the northeast permanently now and ready to really sink/sync with the seasonal transitions! Stay updated for eclipse season with Mary Lomando’s Astrology Updates, there are two happening this month.
Mystery School of the Goddess has many new courses that are being loaded up this month; take advantage of the back to school energy and start a new path of study!
To celebrate the Feast Days of Oshun and Yemaya, we have two free events happening in the Goddess Full Moon Group: Oshun is on 9/8 (her feast day) and the Full Moon will be Yemaya! Brandi Auset and I are leading both events!
In all that you do this month, may you be open to receive the blessings of Goddess!
