There is a song in the air. People have been buzzing about it for weeks. It’s a song of angry women. Really it’s not just angry women, it’s an angry society that feels unheard and afraid. As I write this there are upwards of a million women and their allies preparing for the Women’s March on Washington this weekend for unity, protection, power, and progress . Speaking at the march are feminist icons Gloria Steinem and Angela Davis. The other notables set to appear include Scarlett Johansson, Michael Moore, Gwen Carr, Uzo Aduba, Cher, and many, many more. Sister marches have rose up here in my hometown of NYC, and all across the world really including India and New Zealand. In the words of Zora Neale Hurston ” If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.” The people rising up are proud and courageous, but in my sincerest heart of hearts I also hope they are protected.
Another good idea is to make a gris gris bag, or mojo bag, for protection. You can include your favorite power herbs and stones and whatever else you need. If you would like more information on making one of these, please see my video for Maman Brigitte.
Maman Brigitte is a loa of the Vodou and Voodoo pantheon who is seen as a wise and powerful grandmother to all mankind. Her sacred domain is justice. It is obvious why this is a particularly good protection spell to make up for marches. You can carry this bag with you, or even tie it to your protest sign. Luck and blessings to all who will be protesting, I hope to see you there !
