goddess of transformation,⠀
Inspiration, and knowledge,⠀
Mighty magic maker,⠀
And keeper of the⠀
Cauldron of Inspiration.⠀
You who birthed Taliesin,⠀
Great poet and bard of Wales.⠀
You are the womb of potential⠀
From which inspiration flows.⠀
I ask for your aid.⠀
Grant me the blessings⠀
From deep within ⠀
Let my thoughts transform,⠀
And the words ⠀
flow through me.
Tonight, I sit quietly,⠀
Listening to the winds⠀
Blowing through the trees, ⠀
Watching the sky grow darker⠀
As the days grow shorter. ⠀
Yet in this darkness,⠀
I see a glimmer of hope. ⠀
Hope for change, ⠀
Hope for a brighter future. ⠀
I know there is work to be done ⠀
But the fire to keep Pushing forward ⠀
Burns brighter today. ⠀
And so, I say thank you... ⠀
Thank you to all whose voices rang loudly. ⠀
Thank you to those who marched and fought. ⠀
Thank you for reigniting my hope... ⠀
For my children’s future ⠀
For my own self worth. ⠀
Tonight, may we all find comfort⠀
As we sit together in the darkness.
Ianus Pater, ⠀
guardian of doors,⠀
looking in both directions,⠀
You embody beginnings and endings⠀
And guide us through the gates.⠀
Through your door, ⠀
let our words reach the Kindreds.⠀
Through you, ⠀
may our hearts be open.⠀
Through you, may our homes be safe.⠀
With you, ⠀
may all who join be welcomed.⠀
And through you ⠀
may our words travel past the portals.⠀
Hypnos, son of the night and darkness,⠀
Soars through the starry sky,⠀
bringing dreams to the land of the living.⠀
Tonight I call to you, ⠀
And I ask you, please,⠀
Watch over my children ⠀
as they’re cradled in your arms. ⠀
Carry them safely through the night ⠀
Fill their thoughts and dreams with love,⠀
until Eos returns to the world again. ⠀
Bare feet, firmly pressed to the earth,
Grounded, connected, and balanced,
Right here, right now, in this time and space.
I feel myself stretch down deeply like roots,
Beyond the rocks and waters,
Searching and connecting to the Ancestors.
I call to those who stood on this land before me,
and built the roads I walk along.
Guide my footsteps, show me the path.
Grant me the wisdom of your many lives.
Today we sit and wait
Looking at tomorrow with hope
And anxiety for fate unknown.
Anticipation is wound tight.
Liberty, we call to you,
With optimistic prayers.
Let our voices be heard.
Let out votes be cast.
Athena, we call to you
To beg for wisdom for us all.
Let us make the right decisions
And build a brighter future.
For ourselves and our children.
Tomorrow is a day of action,
But today... We sit and wait.
In our household, Daylight Savings Time can be quite hectic. Today, my prayer asks for help as we adapt to this change once again:
I call to my allies,
You who support and surround me,
And stand by my side when most needed.
I call to you on this day of transition,
A time of suddenly darker evenings,
And interrupted schedules.
Help guide my thoughts and actions,
As we struggle to adapt together.
Help me find patience,
When the would around is in Flux.
Allies of hearth and heart,
Please guide me.
