On June 5, 2012, Everyday Medicine Woman participated in a once-in-a-lifetime gathering along the shores of Lake Michigan. Together we experienced an evening of mystical wonder as our sister planet Venus transited across the sun in a rare and historic astrological event that happens only once every 121 years. Through ceremony, prayer and intention, we kindled a light for Venus to evoke love, beauty & friendships. We called upon the spiritual power of the sun to bless & heal our precious earth & her sacred waters.

As we lit our candles here in Chicago, for the first time like-minded communities and varied cultures across the world were doing the same.

Everyday Medicine Woman participated as one of the wisdom holders in the WaterSongline International Lighting of the Lights ceremonies. Wisdom keepers from around the world, including the International Council of Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers offered prayers simultaneously in the spirit of unity during this time of the Venus transit.

This will unify our energies, ushering in the cosmic feminine energy of love, compassion, cooperation, and earth renewal as well as the inspiration to give what, who & how we love full expression.

This celebration of the cosmos through fire & carried by the waters took place at sunset. The evening celebration included:

  • Procession of drums
  • Creating a prayer together
  • Lighting the sacred fire
  • Offering to the waters
  • Celebratory fire spinning offered by Pyrotechniq and Chicago Fire Tribe
