The Loving One, Mother Moon

The Loving One, Mother Moon

Life & Nature – (NG) Moonday

Favors those who are kind, caring, and thoughtful; mothers, children, the innocent; natural living things such as animals and plants. Favored by most good-natured, good-hearted people. The altruistic and the simple folk who revere nature and life.

Mother Moon is easily the most popular of the gods, both because she is the creator and the mother of all other gods, and because she is as kind and caring for her creations as she implores them to be to one another. She is neither strict nor careless in her ways, and she is regularly found among her creations in one form or another, especially at festivals or celebrations in her honor.

Although there are several festivals dedicated to The Loving One, the First Festival is probably the most popular. Before the first day of planting in the new year, each member in a family or community writes down a gift they need for the new year – most commonly a tool or supply for the upcoming planting- and they are exchanged in secret. It is the task of each recipient to attempt to provide the gift to the other person without being caught in the act. Most local temples and merchants offer hefty discounts on things being purchased for First Festival, and it is generally a very busy, fun, and generous holiday.
