New Moon Goddesses of the Month by Kathy Crabbe
The Ash Tree represents the third lunar month, also known as the “Moon of Floods.” It is associated with the Spring Equinox and is sacred to Poseidon, god of the sea. The Ash is sacred to Wednesday and the Ash affirmation is, “I am a wind on the sea.” Ash is a watery, and emotional moon and it’s healing secret is, “From the viper’s poison comes the tonic of life.” The emotional turmoil that accompanies this Moon can teach us a great deal about our inner self so that we can express who we are more honestly. ~ Year of Moons, Season of Trees by Pattalee Glass-Koentop
Pao-Yueh: "Precious mouth," a heroic Chinese queen. ~ The Book of Goddesses & Heroines by Patricia Monaghan
Mertseger: "Friend of silence," she lived on the pyramidal peak of the burial ground at Egyptian Thebes. Benevolent and punishing by turns, she was sometimes shown as a snake with three heads -- one its own, one human, one that of a vulture -- and sometimes as a snake with a human head. ~ The Book of Goddesses & Heroines by Patricia Monaghan
Bast: She originated in the Nile delta, but by 93- B.C., the power of Bast was acknowledged by all Egyptians. Bast ruled pleasure and dancing, music and joy. At first she was a lion-goddess of sunset, symbolizing the fertilizing force of the sun's rays. Later her image grew tamer: she became a cat carrying the sun, or a cat-headed woman who bore on her breastplate the lion of her former self. ~ The Book of Goddesses & Heroines by Patricia Monaghan
Brigid: Probably the clearest example of the survival of an early goddess into Christian times is Brigid, the great triple goddess of the Celtic Irish who appeared as Brigantia in England, Bride in Scotland, and Brigandu in Celtic France...The three Brigids --probably never construed as separate goddesses but as aspects of one divinity --were unified in the symbol of fire, for Brigid was "bright arrow," or simply the "bright one," as her name tells us. Almost into modern times, the ancient worship of the fire-godddess Brigid continued at her sacred shrine in Kildare, where 19 virgins tended the undying fire and where, on the 20th day of each cycle, the fire was miraculously tended by Brigid herself. ~ The Book of Goddesses & Heroines by Patricia Monaghan
