I did pay attention to it when it came to my spell work, but not in any other aspect of my life. When I found my Goddess Sophia, the presence of the Moon became more prevalent in my life.
When I first started my practice I had a tough time making the connection to the Sun as a representation of God. To be honest it is really still much of a challenge when I consider the Christian aspect of my practice. So this week’s topic has given me a lot of thinking to do.
