Each morning in my mail box I receive mail from Granny Moon
I enjoy the news letter and find a lot of things of interest on it. Today she is talking about Kali. With all that is happening to me now I felt she was the perfect Goddess to post about.

About Kali: Kali, a Hindu Goddess whose name means "time;' is the
genetrix of natural forces that either build or destroy. Even in destruction,
however, she reminds us that good really can come of bad situations. If
you find your hopes and dreams have been crushed, Kali can change the cycle
and produce life out of nothingness. Where there is sorrow, she dances to
bring joy. Where there is fear, she dances in courage.
To Do Today: Hindus gather today at Shiva's temples to honor his
celestial dance; of creation, and Kali dances with them in spirit. Beforehand,
they fast and bathe in holy waters for purification. Doing similarly (in
your tub or shower) will purge your body and soul of negative influences. Add
some flower petals or sweet perfume to the bath to invoke Kali's cleansing
To invoke Kali's assistance in bringing new life to stagnant projects
or ruined goals, leave her an offering of honey or flowers, and make this
Kali amulet: Take any black cloth and wrap it around a flower dabbed with a
drop of honey, saying:
Kali, turn, dance, and change.
End the devastation and strife;
what was dead return to life.
Carry this with you until the situation changes, then bury it with
