We are at the 11th month. November 1st is the Day of the Dead in MEXICO
It is of ancient pagan roots, like Samhain.
Traditionally intact cultures always honor their departed ancestors. It’s a huge celebration with sugar skulls, marigolds, and picnicking at cemeteries with the whole family.
The origins of the modern holiday dates back thousands of years to an Aztec festival dedicated to a Goddess called Mictecacihuatl. She is the Queen of the Underworld, presiding over Festivals of the Dead. Known as the Lady of the Dead or Santa Muerte, she is a skeletal figure who used to be privately worshipped at home alters, now she is seen in public in Mexico. She would seem very cool to lots of hipsters these days.
Inspirational Card of the Day
It seems more holistic to have a Goddess of the dead rather than Patriarchal old Pluto. I just realized that his snatching of Persephone to the Underworld must be the in-story explaining how the patriarchy took over from the original Matriarchal cultures, when Persephone Herself was Queen of the Dead, and her mother Ceres the Goddess of Life.
Women ruled both poles of Life, Life and Death. Women were traditionally the midwives bringing in new life and the death escorts, the medicine women, herbalistas and shamans who helped people to make passage from the physical world back to spirit and the Goddess from whence they came.
