RCGI Seasonal Salon, Winter Issue
The winter issue of Seasonal Salon, the e-journal of the Re-formed Congregation of the Goddess-International (RCG-I), is now online with excellent articles.
Gorgonic Reconstruction Part II by Marisa Folse is about the Gorgon goddesses Medousa (an alternate spelling of the same Goddess after whom this blog is named), Stheno, and Euryale. Folse says that each of these Goddesses was "a triple Goddess with immense power in each aspect." She does a terrific job of giving us a lot of information in relatively few words about the aspects and attributes of each Gorgon Goddess and the influence of each in a number of different countries and cultures.
Into the Darkness by Max Dashu takes us on a tour of Goddess traditions in various parts of the world at this time of year. She writes, "We are in the Winternights, the Modranecht, the Night of the Mother, and especially of the Old Woman...." Dashu also points out that at Winter Solstice in many traditions the Goddess gives birth to the Sun and she gives examples of these traditions.
Other articles in this issue are: "Wine Parable: Mulled Wine," by Patricia Monaghan, "Seasonal Poems" by Debby Zygielbaum, and "2007 is a 9 Year," by Bellezza Squillance.
