Event Details: WE ARE COLLECTING GENTLY USED BLANKETS, PILLOWS, AND COATS FOR THE
HOMELESS AT THIS RITUAL IF YOU HAVE ANY TO DONATE.
The Priestesses of CAYA have chosen to focus our Grove of Artemis circles in 2012 around the theme of the 8 Virtues promoted by Confucius. He is quoted in the _Analects of Confucius_ as saying, "I
am the transmitter who invented nothing." Gratefully, we draw upon Confucian wisdom this month as we explore the virtue of Service to Elders as our final theme of the year.
Service to Elders is exemplified in the story of Vasilisa the Brave in her negotiations with the Hag of Wisdom, Baba Yaga. Through a feminist lens, this story demonstrates the ways in which women have much to learn from one another across the perceived divisions of generation and experience, and how important it is to honor the Wisdom of those who have come before us. In this Rite, we confront the Hag in Her Wintry Silence, and receive her divinatory message for the dark portion of the year.
This will be the last Grove of Artemis for 2012. Join us in 2013 as we explore CAYA's new Full Moon cycle:
Jan: Yearning Moon - What desires, deep within, are yearning to be fulfilled, and how might we begin to take steps toward fulfilling them?
Feb: Silent Moon - How can we find silent time to restore and regenerate our enthusiasm for our lives/work/relationships?
Mar: Maker's Moon - What wants to be conceived/born/shaped/made from our own minds/hearts/loins/hands?
Apr: Trickster Moon - Where do life's lessons sneak up on us/surprise us, and how can we greet these lessons with humor and receptivity instead of resistance?
May: Loving Moon - How might we remember the importance and meaning of love/passion/pleasure in our lives?
June: Singing Moon - What makes our spirits sing? How is our individual song of life harmonizing with the song of the Universe?
July: Fury Moon - What is worth fighting for or defending in our lives? What is worth our blood/sweat/tears?
Aug: Laughing Moon - How might we honor the transformative power of laughter in our lives to get us through hard times/drudgery/toil?
Sept: Grateful Moon - What is the bounty (in wisdom and/or material worth) we received from this year's harvest, and how might we celebrate it with gratitude?
Oct: Poison Moon - What needs healing/purification/transmutation in our lives?
Nov: Graveyard Moon - What are the messages our Ancestors want to offer us at this darkening time of year?
Dec: Giving Moon - How can our personal gifts and generosity improve our community/world?
