Feast Day of Bast

I find a scribbled note reminding me that this day, October 31, has long been celebrated.

Bast, goddess of innocence, family, fertility, music and dance is the daughter of sun god Ra.  She symbolizes the Moon with Neith, the Night Goddess.

What this reveals is that every day is sacred, someone somewhere has celebrated and the solstice, equinox and cross quarter days carry a jolt of energy to be acknowledged.

Breathe in the change.  Exhale the stagnant.  Bless the moment.
