Join the Goddess Full Moon Group for a celebration and discussion of the African Creatrix Goddess Mawu for Winter Solstice. Brandi and I will both be traveling at Full Moon so we will gather just in time for the Solstice! The moon is full in Gemini on December 3 at 1047am eastern. We will be gathering on the night before Winter Solstice, December 20, at 8pm eastern. A perfect time to connect to Mawu and plant seeds for our New Year!
Brandi Auset and I lead the Goddess Full Moon Group just about every month, as well as some special Goddess Wheel celebrations, and it includes discussion of the featured Goddess, a guided meditation, and a chat with Q&A after the meditation. This is free to sign up!
Mawu is a West African Creation Goddess. She sees into our souls with the Moon as Her eyes. As we sink into deep reflection at the close of the calendar year, Mawu gives us safe space and draws the shades of night to allow us quiet womb time. Under Her canopy, we can take a much-needed respite. Each day, Mawu writes the destinies of humanity and passes them to Her son, Legba, to deliver. Look and listen for Her messages. Take the information that She provides and prepare to seed your field anew at the Winter Solstice, just as Mawu set down the first seeds of creation. Her messages come from a myriad of sources: nature, the Sky (Her home), through strangers (it just might be Legba himself), and in dreams. Rest with Mawu in preparation for your own creation process and allow Her to soothe and guide you. Place a bowl of seeds on your altar to honor Mawu or simply lay on the Earth at night and allow Her to speak to you.
In the bigger picture, Mawu is sending out a call to Her sacred activists. As the source of seeds, what is occurring on this planet with genetic modification, seed-hoarding by corporations, and the slow but steady undermining of farmers, is anathema to Mawu. Get involved and learn how you can help. Mawu’s seeds feed and sustain us and we can work on Her behalf to keep it that way.
