The Wicca Book of Days for July 12

Mistress Moon

It is now more than midway through the zodiacal month of Cancer, whose ruling “planet” is the moon. Although there are some exceptions, most cultures have considered the moon to be the spirit of femininity made manifest, which is why such traditionally females characteristics as receptiveness and compassion are attributed to it. Because it show us different faces, its various phases can represent diverse goddesses, from divine virgin huntresses, such as the Roman Diana (whose symbol, like that of the moon in astrology, is a lunar crescent), through mother goddesses, including the Phrygian Cybele, to crone deities like the Celtic Cerridwen.

 

A Lunar Light

 

Today channel the power of the Goddess using candle magick and a silver-colored taper. Prepare for your ritual at least twenty-four hours beforehand by placing the candle outside so that it is bathed in and energized by, the moon’s light.
