Pagan Holiday for November 16th, 2009


Pagan Days for Monday, November 16th, 2009

Monday (moon day) is the day of the Moon Goddess, Selene, Luna, & Mani.


Mondays are an awesome day to take care of matters or magical rituals and spells concerning:

Traveling, memory, one’s instinct, sharpening or increasing Psychic abilities, dreams, healing, home, ancestors and of course, family.


Monday belongs to the Moon and the Element of Water

The moon phase for the 16th is:

A Full Moon




On this Pagan Day our Ancestors would…

The Greeks would honor Hecate, Hekate

The Egyptians would have a Festival for Bastet




How lucky is it that on a night dedicated to Hekate (eh-ka-tay) there would be a full moon? I hope Witches and other types of Pagans in our time take full advantage of that.

Hekate, happens to be the Goddess of Night. So Greeks won’t truly honor her until the sun sets and the moon rises.

Now remember, Hekate is a three fold Goddess. It is on this night that we respect and honor the ‘Crone’ of Hekate.

It is said that the Crone is the power behind the ‘Queen Mother’ aspect of Hekate. The Queen Mother—interpreted by some Witches to mean ‘their Queen’.

Queen of the Witches – Goddess of Crossroads

I am Hecate, Queen of The Witches–Sorceress, Psychic, Crone, Hag.
I ride through the night sky, bathing the landscape in supernatural light.
Guardian of the Unconscious; Mistress of the Night; Holder of the Key.
I am Hecate; I command Earth, Sea and Sky;
I control the lunar cycles; I control your menstrual cycles; Goddess of Life and Birth
I am Hecate the ultimate Feminine.


The Egyptian Goddess Bastet


Today is the Festival of Bastet. She is a very interesting Goddess as she is considered to be the untamed and untamable daughter of Ra. Now don’t let that steer you away…Bastet is known to be very generous to those who are deserving, but yes, she can be absolutely wicked and vindictive to those who are cruel. What could really tick Bastet off? Harming a cat was one thing. If you harm a cat in ancient Egypt, well look out. Bastet’s wrath was nothing to purr at.



More about the Moon


As I said above, tonight is a Full Moon.


* Full Moon Magic *

From fourteen to seventeen-and-a-half days after the new moon. Prime time for rituals for prophecy, protection, divination. Any working that needs extra power, such as help finding a new job or healing for serious conditions, can be done now. Also, love, knowledge, legal undertakings, money and dreams.


Elemental Magic

spells should be performed when the moon is in one of the astrological signs governed by that element: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.



Well that’s it for today folks!

See you tomorrow for another Pagan Day!
