Mother Rusa is an ancient Syrian Goddess. She is the Goddess of Fate, Destiny, and Good Fortune. Rusa is known as the Evening Star and a Goddess of the Moon. She is our Mother and so a protector of the people. As a Goddess of fate she helps to steer the future.
Mother Rusa weaves our fate and fortune. She brings us together to Pray in community space within our Temple. So many Goddess and Womyn spaces are dispersing. What is the fate of the Goddess culture and how can we stand up, support, and sustain the Goddess Movement, Goddess Culture, and Womyn’s Rights.
Syria is in the fourth year of a devastating Civil War that includes horrible violence and fighting, and a mass exodus from the country. Over 6.5 million people have been displaced within Syria, while more than 3 million refugees have fled. It is a devastating humanitarian crisis that is affecting the world and causing countries to come together to examine how refugees will be assisted. We will be sending special prayers for the people and the land of Syria.
For the altar please bring a red, white, or green candle, as well as any images of Mother Rusa or Syria.
Come and celebrate with us on this extraordinary night!
