Hare moon may 2018

#1

I could not find a temple for ‘other gods’, but lately signs have taken me to research Wenet, the Goddess with the Hare face. As the next full moon is a Hare Moon, I wondered if any of you might want to join me in saying a prayer to Wenet on that day?

I am still researching, but may write one myself anyway. I would be happy to share here. (just the words not my full ritual)

Wilkinson’s Complete CGGoAE doesn’t have very much about Her apart from Her association with being swift and fast moving like the desert hare. I hadn’t thought of honouring Her at the full moon, but actually that would be quite lovely!

my books are pretty useless on this one too. The only one she gets a mention in is Conceptions of God in Ancient Egypt by Hornung (p82). And it is just a brief mention so not exactly useful.

i have not found any hymns as such anywhere, so I will write one myself and share it here when it is done. i can’t share any ritual as such because i am very new to doing them, and they are very basic so i wouldn’t pretend to be a pro at them or anything.

in the meantime if you want a little bedtime reading:

Interesting idea. Only a few moon related deities that had any recognition of course, so something a bit extra is a good idea. I’m sure I’ve seen a few hare statues around during the last few months. Might have popped up on the usual FB photo feeds.

Incidentally if you can’t find a ‘temple’ group for what you want and the ‘Add Topic’ button is not showing just say and I can bump up the access and you can create what ones you like. I tend to work with a narrow set of deities as my life is complicated enough so I don’t have the lot in there :slight_smile:

Same here. Rain and thunder. Not going to be a moonlight stroll tonight lol

I have been researching but came up with very little so won’t be writing up prayers just yet. I will keep it all general tonight but i have worked on a specific offering. I have been given a prize a few weeks back, including a magazine and kit to make… A rabbit :rabbit:. I used a different wool to make it and added a few aromatic natural trimmings from my garden.
