A goddess of birth called to a childfree ~ Eieithyia

Depiction Eileithyia aiding in the birth of Athena

Today’s Goddess is going to be a bit of a challenge for me.  Today we work with Eieithyia, who is a Goddess of Birth.    Her symbols are birth, children, creativity and fertility with symbols of a torch and white flowers.

According to some myth, she was the midwife of the gods and even birthed EOS, the creative force behind all things.  When her hands were closed, birth was delayed.  When she opened her body, a child arrived effortlessly.

As a childfree woman this is going to take a bit of creativity (ha!  see what I did there) to work with her.  Historically I have never been able to really connect much with the energy of a Goddess of Birth, mother energy and mother goddesses sure but specific to birth has always been difficult for me.  In order to work with her and welcome her energies, I am going to reach for her creativity and birthing of a new idea or goal.  The goal I have in mind, will remain mine alone but will be worked into a bit of magick today.  I have some white lotus incense and some white mums that I can use for the spell work.Tarot_Lovers_Affirmationsfortheeverdaygoddess

My affirmation card for today is the Lovers.  The affirmation is “I see the Divine in myself reflected in another”.  Decidedly this affirmation does not work for me so I shall re-write it.  “I am connected through the Divine to those around me and honor them through sharing my light and love” .  Not my best affirmation but it gets across what I am hoping for today.
