November 18th: Matariki
Matariki, a Hawaiian Goddess, becomes the Pleiades with her six children in Polynesian mythology. Six kids! My goodness, you’d have to be a goddess to be a mother of 6. I have hard enough time with my son and my nephew!
- the Number Seven
From mid-to-late November, Hawaiians perform special rituals honoring the appearance of the Pleiades in the sky, which marks the start of Harvest Season.
This is a time of peace- all war is forbidden. They all make one wish: that Matariki and her children appear all over the world all the time!
Carry 7 stars in your pocket to encourage peace and harmony for you and all around you. You could draw them, type 7 asterisks ******* and print it off, pull star shaped marshmallows from Lucky Charms Cereal- you get the idea. I have stars tattooed on my thigh, so if I wanted to summon the peace and harmony of Matariki, I could just put my hand over the stars on my leg and infuse them with thoughts of this loving goddess.
If you have seemed to hit a wall on accomplishing a task, call Matariki to help show you the way to finish it efficiently. Pray and meditate, and be open to her messages (which usually show themselves after the starts are in the sky).
