Goddess Month of Bridhe Ends
*Review Days at The Pagan and the Pen*
Today in Ancient Rome was once of silence—honoring and doing rites for Dea Tacita—their Goddess of quiet. It’s a good thing because I have a feeling after Minerva’s birthday party, they are probably all hung over anyway—and who wants noise during a HANGOVER?
The Egyptians aren’t going to be quiet, though, because today in their Ancient calendar is a festival for their God Min. He just so happens to be one of the earliest fertility Gods. So calling all wanna-be Daddies—call on out to Min for he is said to have the power to give MEN the power to father children.
The Goddess Month of Moura Begins today.
