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 email@example.com
It’s not that the light returns—it hasn’t really ever gone anywhere. It’s that by the time of this longest night, shortest day, we’re desperate to find our way back to anything that looks like the warm shining window of home. Whew! Like shamans who have traveled too far out on a path that didn’t exactly have a beginning or middle, let alone an end, we’re suddenly faced with the stark emptiness of the Illusion of Dark.
Come on! Wemoon know magic stronger than these scary B-movies playing out everywhere in the world around us. We know something deeper than “the end is near!”
We can dance clear through walls—right through infinities of incoherence, right past looming mirages of the united corporations of fear. This is the turning, this moment. Together now let’s reach into the soul’s medicine bundle, down into the hidden womb pocket, and pull out the quantum seed, the essential speck that is both Dark and Light, both End and Beginning. It is in our hands.
It is Now!
