Aloha Daughters of the Goddess,
This year is going by so fast with so many ups and downs. It has been hard for some but easy for others. Whatever it’s been like for you, come slither to Her altar and ask Manasa, Hindu Snake Goddess for guidance. She will help us shed our snakeskin and rebirth our Full Moon intentions. Let us sit at Her lap and pray together for all that we desire to call in. As fire season and the drought is among us, let us also ask Her for the rain to quench the Earth’s thirst.
Manasa, the Hindu Snake Goddess

The Hindu Snake Goddess, Manasa is called upon for prosperity, fertility, and most of all for healing. She is said to cure snake bites and infectious diseases, so She will guide and protect us as places are reopening and the mask law is lifted. Manasa represents destruction and regeneration, much like the phoenix.
This graceful Goddess is said to be seen sitting upon a lotus or standing on a snake. She either wears snakes all over Her body or is under a hooded canopy of seven cobras. Manasa was hurt by Her stepmother and those closest to Her, so She is only kind to Her devotees, with everyone else She is guarded and contemplative, often misunderstood as angry and harsh.
Snake Goddesses are also called upon to bring in the rain. Let’s gather on the beautiful Full Moon and Lunar Lammas to slither into re-birthing our new goals and to ask for protection during the Fire season.
For the altar, please bring any images of Manasa, snakes, what you want to rebirth or womyn fest (manifest) and a red or yellow novena candle.
