Join us this day, this month, this year.
Please help us to recognize when retreat is sometimes more powerful than action, to see how to recharge our batteries and gather our resources, and to recognize when the fight is not worth starting.
August is the month of the cross quarter between Summer Solstice and Autumnal Equinox. The Cross Quarters in February and August offer us the opportunity to get more present and aware of what we have in the here and now. This month, I will be offering a Goddess Invocation and entreaty weekly. Perhaps they will serve you well.
