March 9 – Mother Goddess Day, Honoring all Mother Goddesses
March 1 was the Roman New Year, also called Matronalia, the Kalends of March. The word “Mother” is the root of Matronalia and it was a sort of mother’s day and sacred marriage day to ancient Romans.
The Dark Mother is known as the goddess who gives birth to light. She is a gift giver and a teacher of life lessons. She can determine our destiny and help us to create reality.
Childbirth was a magical and religious act for ancient cultures. Necessary for life, but also dangerous, it was a time in women’s lives that required the intervention of the divine.
Spring will be here! Encapsulated in the grip of Winter, we have been waiting for the enlivening energy to revive us and bring forth promise of new life, new energy, and new manifestations.
The Mother is fertility, abundance and growth, the gaining of knowledge. She is fulfillment—sexual, social, and emotional—and she is represented by the full moon. Springtime and early summer are her domain; as the earth becomes green and fertile, so does the Mother.
The Mother aspect is the culmination of the matrix set in motion to create. It is the physical desire, mental will, and spiritual love that go together to create endlessly on many levels. The mental will sets in motion, the physical desire creates it’s form and the spiritual belief and love sustains it.
You are the ritual, you are the practice that reconnects you to nature.
“In each and every person there is a creature, wild, and a reflection of nature. A powerful force and power source, passionate, creative, deeply intuitive and has a knowing that’s older than time itself. And the creature’s name? The witch.”
