Join the Goddess Full Moon Group for a darkly wild Full Moon celebration of the Goddess Baba Yaga on Sunday, October 16 at 8pm eastern. The Moon is Full in Aries.
Brandi Auset and I lead the Goddess Full Moon Group 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.
Called the Mother of Day and Night, Baba Yaga is a Slavic Life/Death/Rebirth Goddess, and the teacher of all the lessons in between. She represents adventure, of wildness, coming of age, and acceptance of the mysteries of aging, decay, and mortality. Greatly feared and revered, she commands the spirits of the dead and is the keeper of wisdom, as well as the guardian of the Waters of Life and Death. As the representation of the untameable and the end of puberty, Baba Yaga is the guide to the shadow side of the self, teaching the lessons needed for growth and expansion. She controls time and the elements, and answers any question to those brave enough to ask.
