My blog--I pull a card--if it doesn't speak to me...perhaps it is for you?
In Pagan tradition the night before the Winter Solstice is Mother Night. A night to honor the Great Mother, Mama Earth. And a night to honor all our maternal ancestors. My own mother was mentally ill from the time I was 12 years old---and my connection to her never evolved past that point.
.However, when we were younger she would put recitation of the rosary on the radio at night for us to fall asleep with. I have recently returned to praying the rosary as a way of honoring the Great Cosmic Mother. I wish I had been wise enough to pray the rosary with my own mother throughout her life. But tonight I will call her and her mother, and her mother to pray with me tonight on this Mother Night.
Oracle of the Essences--Rose--Unconditional Love--I give out love and it is returned to me many fold.
