Celebrate Juno Lucina and the women in your life for Matronalia with little cards and presents to tell them how special they are. Honor International Women’s Day by working to break the bias. How can you celebrate women’s achievements and raise awareness? Give an offering of pink cupcakes for Lakshmi’s birthday. Chant Om Mani Padme Hum for Kuan Yin 108 times for her birthday. Soothe the angry beast of Sekhmet with an offering of beer mixed with pomegranate juice! (She also likes dark chocolate!)

MARCH is WOMEN’S HERSTORY MONTH – stay tuned for some fun podcasts and articles coming in March!
Our New Moon is in Pisces (in Pisces season) on Wednesday, 3/2, and a good mantra is “go with the flow”!
Energies are intense and emotions are running high so be aware of the stress and anxiety of the world affecting you even more than usual. The altars are lit and prayers are being offered here at MotherHouse for the people of Ukraine and Russia. In the coming days, balance your time and energy thoughtfully. Check out the article 13 Tools for Empaths to Stay Balanced for some tips in challenging times.
If you are watching the news, take a walk afterwards, or light a candle, chant a mantra. Do what you can by sharing information from humanitarian organizations and others that are seeking to help the people of Ukraine. Make sure the information that you are sharing is from reliable and verified sources. Take good care of YOU and your Beloveds, especially your younger ones.
Spread goodwill and the energy of Spring by checking on elderly neighbors, performing random acts of kindness, and offering up prayers at every opportunity!
Blessings on this wonderful month! I look forward to seeing you all in Community!
