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 Kim Duckett Ph.D. Priestess/Ritualist/Teacher of Women's Studies for 30 years; Founder and Elder Priestess of WHISPER; Land of the Sky, "A Year and a Day Sacred Mystery School for Women," and WOTY: The Wheel of the Year as an Earth-Based Spiritual Psychology for Women training. For more information about the Wheel as a psychology book, contact kim at firstname.lastname@example.org
Leo's Luminious Lunar Eclipse
The tides are turning and I am sure we all feel the waves shaking underneath us.This eclipse is a great time to continue the momentum of raising up our voices!
A Lunar Eclipse can be a reminder to release ourselves and ground into our strength.
Feel the power flowing around and through us.
Being a full moon in Leo, this moon encourages us to manifest our creativity and arts. Leo says, "let yourself SHINE!" Allow the fires of Leo to charge us up and volcano ourselves through these times of change.
Blessings and Happy Howling!
we are notorious women
spectres of the male imagination
anima working in the half-light
weaving memories from our hair
furies they call us
wtiches and nymphs
banshees wailing down the halls of our fathers
gazing at dusk into mirrors and chanting
calling our voices back
into our howling throats
forgotten goddesses rise
pulling swords from their breasts
setting fire to the temples
etching the names of our dead into skin
heavy as granit
emma, audre, adrienne
wilma, harriet, magdlene
virginia, leslie, valerie,
sacagawea, sojourner, eve
summon them into the circle
the rituals have begun.

Emily Kell (Portland, OR) I am a visionary artist whose work takes root in ideals of divine feminine and a return to the energy of the primordial goddess. I created a language to write secret poems and messages that I include in my female empowerment series that honors women in their many unique manifestations of beaut.
