This is the last one of the month. So what does this mean? It means that you make the most of the time that you have and don’t try and do multiple things at one time. Make good use of your time and it will make good use of you.

August 21: Hea Kai Nea (Honoring Hecate)
Have a good month.
So this is the next to last one for this month and it’s pretty clear, nothing in excess. This will include a ton of things that we might find ourselves buying a lot of. Watching how people go and buy things that they just don’t need, and then later on lose it, makes me really believe the Greeks had a point with this one. Or Apollon had a point in this one.
Wanting things that you don’t need, or buying a ton of them, might sound great but it’s not. In-fact it can cause you problems.
When the sun goes down it will be the end of the first Athenian month. I do hope that you all had a good one. I honor the goddess Hecate and stay inside while she’s on the wild hunt. Have a good one and be blessed.
Tonight is Athena’s birth, which is a time of great celebration. I really didn’t do much for this holiday, due to the fact that I had to work. So I”m going to burn some incense and call it a day. I have to work tomorrow. I do hope that all those that do a more complex ritual will have a good Athena’s birthday.
So this is the next one and it’s very simple, do a favor for a friend. If your friend asks you for a favor, and you know that you can do it, then do it. Caring about friends is just as important as caring about family. Both are very important in your life.
I was supposed to do this yesterday but I forgot. Yesterday was the beginning of Panathenaia, which is dedicated to Athena and celebrates the day that she was born which takes place on the 21st. I don’t have a photo because I have to go to work. However, I do hope that all of you will have a good one.
So I’m back doing these things, on time, and it’s number 36. I’m not sure what this means but I’ll give it a shot. What I think it means is don’t scream out your religious beliefs to the world and don’t share them with others. Be silent and let the gods speak.
I almost forgot to do this one. Tonight will be Sunoikia, which is the annual sacrifice that the people of Attica did. I don’t know who it was dedicated to, but it was an important one. I hope that you all have a good one.
