In Praise of the Divine Feminine

May has been a Goddess month for me. My catholic youth was filled with "Mary" - herself a heretical figure imposed by the vox populi on the patriarchy of "father, son, and holy ghost" (who herself, had a bit of a gender transfiguration to the more feminine "holy spirit")

Wikipedia suggests: The month may have been named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May.

As one who dances at the interface of light/dark in terms of gender, well, Yay for May. Worship the goddess. Be fertile. Plant something. Notice all things green. Sink your hands into the mud. Feel the sun making love to the earth. Dance round the maypole.

Yum.
