Own Your Sexy

I thought that this article on elephant journal raised some important points, and wanted to share it here. Its very Aphrodisian.

"Why empower the media with the ability to make you feel vulnerable?"

Update!

Wow, didn't realise it's been several weeks since my last update!  


Yes, I'm alive!  I hope that I'll update properly here soon, especially with more things I'm trying to integrate from my Goddess Conference experience.  It's been a manic month with no stopping! I've just posted a long update filled with announcements over my Avalon Blessings blog, so check it out if you feel so inclined!  


There's a couple things to look forward to this week.  Tuesday, 21st September, is World Peace Day.  In her book, Cult of Aphrodite, Laurelei Black details a Rite of Peace ceremony to perform on 1st April when Aphrodite's month takes over from Ares' month.  Although I know that rite is specific for that time, I am inspired to maybe do a modified version of this rite in celebration of World Peace Day.  Not sure yet but I'm feeling a bit inspired.


And then on the Autumn Equinox on the 23rd is the Adonia festival, the festival in which Aphrodite mourns Adonis.  Again, Laurelei puts forth in Cult of Aphrodite a wonderful ceremony of honour.  As I am doing it on my own though I may modify it.  That particular day looks to be a high energy day for me as it's full moon, there is the Equinox celebration of the Avalonian wheel and then a friend is hosting a meditation evening.  So what I do that day remains to be seen!


In the meantime, a prayer:-


Beloved Aphrodite
Beautiful bountiful Lover Mother Goddess of the Garden, the Sea and the Heavens
I bow down in humble gratitude for all You bestow upon me:
My lover husband, my daughters, the love in my heart and in my home, the nourishment only You can provide
I offer up my thanks through the offerings to You upon my altar.
Blessed be.
