MATARIKI

Themes: Stars; Harvest; Peace

Symbols: Stars; the Number Seven

About Matariki: In Polynesian tradition, this goddess and her six children became the Pleiades, and they continue to help humans by showing us when to begin harvesting the labors of hand or heart.

To Do Today: From mid-to-kate November the people of Hawai take part in special rituals to celebrate the appearance of the Pleiades in the skies, which is the beginning of harvest season. In reverence for this occasion, all war was forbidden. It makes one wish that Matariki and her children appeared around the world all the time!

To encourage similar peacefulness in your own life, and harmony with those around you, carry seven stars in your pocket, wallet or purse today. You can draw these on paper, use seven typed asterisks, get the marshmallow kind out of a cereal box, or collect seven noodles from a chicken 'n' stars can. If you use edible items, eat them at the end of the day to bring serenity to your spirit.

If there's something you've been working on that seems to be taking forevedr, look to Matariki to show you how to begin effectively manifesting your efforts. Pray, meditate, and watch for unique openings throughout the day, especially after the stars appear in the sky, representing her power.
