Poseidon of the Ponds

I made more things!

Poseidon of the Ponds is the second volume in my Poseidon Liturgical Year project. It can be read alone, or as part of the series. In this volume, I write about the ritual I hold for Him, honoring my Beloved, along with others I call the Rainmakers, during what is for us a very dry, very warm, very dry part of the year.

It’s not revolutionary. These books are not meant to be scholarly works. This is just a glimpse into what it might be like, to be devoted to a Power who comes to us with very little information about past rituals held in His honor.

With this series, I really want to encourage people. Yes, to maybe consider Poseidon — because He is amazing, after all — but beyond that, more importantly than that, I want people to be encouraged to walk their own path. You are not bound to holy days or festivals that already exist. If your devotional path is missing something, or doesn’t quite have the shape you want it to, make it up. These are  living traditions we are making, here. If the festivals you have for your Powers do not connect with you, or with Them, or are just . . . off . . . experiment. Explore. Create.

Celebrate.

Poseidon of  the Ponds e-books are available at Amazon.com and at my brand spanking new  Etsy shop. The price is the same at both locations; I’ll see more of the money if you purPoseidon of  the Pondschase it through Etsy, but either way works for me! If you’re interested in receiving a free copy in exchange for a review, please contact me. And as always, thank you for your support!

      I haven’t forgotten about you! I’m still trying to figure that out.

      I know there are software that will read text aloud. It’s not as good as a purposefully recorded audiobook, but it might work for some folks.

      (A quick google suggests a program called NaturalReader, which is free, though I can’t vouch for quality.)

    Yep. My mother deity’s big 9-day festival is in the fall, but my special, private “festival” with Her is on Mother’s Day. Because that’s how I most deeply relate to Her as a divine mom – and She seems to like it, so who cares what anyone thinks.
