May Blessings

May blessings to all. I celebrated May Day by making offerings to Aphrodite of chocolate, strawberries & blackberries and a lovely little sea shell, as well as a sweet libation. I also read tarot and drew some Amulets of the Goddess and Crone Stones after some meditation/journeying. A lovely evening.

Everyday I honor my goddesses, but there are many days through May and June that are or have become associated with various goddesses of many cultures. I present a calendar drawn from The Goddess Book of Days by Diane Stein, compilation by DeAnna Alba and various other sources.
