We’Moon Holy Days: Seasonal Blessings

In each edition of the We’Moon datebook, we feature one Holy Day writer who shares with us her unique perspectives of each of the eight holy days. This year, we have the pleasure of sharing the work of Oak Chezar. Oak is a radical Dyke, performance artist, Women's Studies professor, psychotherapist, writer, & semi-retired barbarian. She lives in a straw bale, womyn-built house. She just published "Trespassing", a memoir about Greenham Common Womyn's Peace Camp. Whilst working & playing towards the decimation of patriarchy & industrial civilization, she carries water. oakchezar@gmail.com

When a Wise Woman Passes
We are left to spread
her wisdom like seeds.
excerpt ¤ Sisterdiscordia 2016

In the Mirror of the Wheel, a woman of authority faces us. Her face changes and changes as we scry. When it settles, we look deep and admit everything. We let deep quiet uncover the power of our vulnerability. We listen for messages in the song of the fire, on the winds, in the sound of the river. We celebrate the unseen, and the non-doing nakedness of winter. We offer to the fire everything that is finished in our life from the old year. 

The veil between the worlds is nearly sheer. This is the time to join ceremonially with our ancestors, whose energy dances down through our genes, and slides to coincide in us. We honor and embrace the wealth inherited from them. 

Hallowmas is the witches' New Year's Eve. Giddy, invoking the foremothers to lend us power, we celebrate in that endless ring called a circle. Urgent and earnest, we muscle potent magik into real world manifestation.
