Goddess Day - September 7th 2014, 06:07 PM

Today is the worldwide Goddess Day! I didn't even know this existed until today. How exciting is that?!
This is from the World Goddess Day project website.

:: What is World Goddess Day?
"For many historical reasons the names of the Goddess and her myths have been forgotten and were relegated to mere folkloric curiosity in the Western world by many. The force and power of Her names were lost. Ancient temples are in ruins, ancient chants and invocations are not recited anymore. The many myths of the divine Goddess were set aside and now are part of the fairy tales, losing its sacredness and becoming mere stories only seen by a psychological prism or as silly legend of ancient people.
Nowadays, the Goddess is reentering into our modern life and bringing back all Her vitality, power, wisdom and healing through the many Pagan traditions that are revitalizing Her worship.
She returns for several reasons. The Goddess is calling all who feel dissatisfied; she calls out all who have found in Western religions just political institutions focused only on a male dominant figure; She also calls for all who feel dissatisfied with the patriarchal religion inherited from their ancestors who have only contributed to sicken the world with their distorted and corrupted values.
...The Goddess is considered by many people the only way to reunite ourselves with the true Self, with our most inner Self. She is the only way to get rid of so many years of oppression that only brought differences, prejudices and wars. Centuries of patriarchal oppression were crucial to our society become what it is today: a lost generation. So a World Goddess Day has never been so necessary as it is now!"

I didn't know this was a thing. You'll have to remind me about it next year.

Although it's kind of amusing that it seems to fall on the same day as Father's Day for those of us in Australia.




just because it hurts to go on
doesn't mean the battle can't still be won

This was actually the first ever World Goddess Day. I didn't hear about it until a Facebook status was made. I jumped for joy!

And in America this lands on Grandparents Day!

I didn't even know that there exists a Grandparents Day!

But well.. now I know.

By the way, here in Austria, Father's day was on the 8th June and Mother's day was on the 11th May. ^-^ Also, Germany and Austria have different Father's day and Mother's day dates. Just sayin'.
