Maia & Mercury

Event source: Basic Calendar Events
12:00 AM
Maia was the goddess of memory, and the mother of Hermes/Mercury— the trickster god of the Greco-Roman pantheon, and the deity in charge of thieves, merchants, magicians, and travelers. Together they are celebrated on this day.

In ritual alone and in group, emphasize the union of memory and record-keeping with the work of businesses and magic-making. Use writing — one of Hermes's arts and a gift he made to his mother — as a ritual tool for making magic. Shower blessings on businesses and on people's workplaces, for prosperous years and safe working environments.
