“Hail to you, New Moon,
Beautiful guide to the clouds
May your gaze
promise new beginnings
Hail to you, New Moon,
Beautiful beloved of my heart.
May your light
shine right into my soul
Hail to you, O New Moon,
Beautiful luminary of our sky
May your wisdom
open my womb to receive.”
-Celtic Fertility Prayer-
Before you get prematurely excited, no, I’m neither pregnant nor planning to be…yet.
Ancient tribes theoretically had no way of speedily or directly communicating with each other, unlike now. But from the Sahara to the Steppe, there are records of different ancient cultures worshiping the moon for pretty much the same reason. Moon is essentially seen as a ‘feminine’ force. Prayers and offerings heaped on full lunar nights whenever a girl needed a husband, and then again when they needed to get pregnant.
What is it that makes the Moon so…enigmatic?
I could go on and on about this, but I’ll probably bore you to the Moon. 🙂
Anyway, nearly everything here is from The Fantasy Gacha Carnival, so I won’t be linking to the store directly seeing that these are not available in the individual stores yet.
There’s roughly another 2 weeks before it ends, so if you haven’t been there yet, it’s worth a visit.
Need to plan your shopping? Gacha keys here.
