note: I thought I had posted this last Saturday but clearly I didn’t oops:)
Ok so you know I love themes. I can’t help it. If I don’t have a way to organize my thoughts they just bounce all over the place and I get to feeling overwhelmed. Not cute. Its January which means it is time to set year goals and plan them out. For me one thing I really wanted to do was write more. To do that I came up with Daily themes that will give me a starting point each and every day.
Saturday is named for Saturn. Who was seen as the God of the harvest and agriculture, justice as well as strength. This is actually a fascinating story though in his case violent. many felt that when Saturn ruled it was the golden era of Rome. It was for told that he would be overthrown by his son so he ate all his children when they were born. The part that is interesting to me is that in many cultures across the globe the “golden era” was a time remembered when the ruling deities (often the parents of the current deities) watched over a much more egalitarian society. Many people feel that this was a time of Matriarchies. Not that the female was dominate, but the male and female aspects were equal, and agriculture was a key theme.
You know for me being a witch is a daily practice. All things in my life are influenced by it and my spiritual practice is at the heart of who I am. It shapes my values and thoughts and therefore deeds. Which brings me to my themes for Saturday which may seem mundane but the mundane, the daily is the heart of a practice. As far as I’m concerned how you live your daily life is what makes you what and who you are. Many folks spend Saturdays doing cleaning. I don’t for us we follow the flylady way and Saturday is our Family Fun day. So on Saturdays I am going to post about different activities as well as “Keeping a Witchy Home”
Blessed Be and make sure you do something fun today!
