Goddess Workshops: Aphrodite, the Love Goddess

This year I am working with more Goddess energy again. 
It also has to do with my word of the year, Nest.

But honestly, I just miss Goddess, my Divine Mother.
For me, working with Goddess energy is so empowering, uplifting, and brings me back to my center. I feel I can touch the wisdom of my ancestors, the ancients, and the goddesses who inhabited the old world; I am a part of that line keeping the old ways strong. It is so powerful and humbling to me.

So I am starting with self-love with Goddess Aphrodite. I want to build a Nest of self-love in my being again. And I want to share this journey with you all. This is the first of the many Goddess workshops I am creating this year. The workshops dances around the Lunar phases (she is after all the symbol of Goddess), and helps you to create your own dance with the Love Goddess.

Venus/Aphrodite (note: I use the Roman and Greek names interchangeably) gets a bad rep sometimes. I actually used to really dislike her. I was turned off by the idea of all the lovers she's had and I thought it was so "cliche" to work with her. 

Why did I get so defensive when it came to Aphrodite? 

The truth is, she reflected all of the self-love, sensuality, self-worth I was missing in my life.

It took a long time to admit that to myself. But as soon as I did, I began to build a relationship with her and the love for myself grew. I looooooooove the smell of roses now (I used to HATE it!), and  I feel more comfortable in my skin.

It is time to come back to her.

The 4-week workshop will include:

~3-4 emails in your inbox per week focusing on each of the Lunar phases and how to work with the Goddess through each phase
~Goddess lore of Venus/Aphrodite
~Lunar wisdom
~meeting your Inner Love Goddess
~rituals to manifest love
~journaling prompts
~love recipes
~a complete ebook at the end to use whenever you want
~Private FB group for a loving community of support

I personally am focusing on self-love, but any love you wish to create is in the realm of Venus.We start in the New Moon phase of building our Love intentions, gathering our items. We build upon our actions in the Waxing phase. Manifest and Celebrate under the Full Moon. Resting in Love as Luna wanes. Each email and week build on one another as we work through each phase together.

This is going to be a beautiful experience. I hope you will join me.

It starts on the New Moon of March 11th.

The first 30 souls to register will also receive a free gift of love and magick, from me.

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter

Daughters of Earth Launch



I am partaking in Laura Emily's Daughter of Earth Launch and Magazine, where a community of healer women, warrioress women, women leaders, and mostly all of the above, come together to support each other's gifts and offerings.

Are you intrigued? Want to find out more? I know I am.

Well LE is offering a free call for whoever wants to find out more:

Daughters of Earth - Holistic Offering Launch Q + A Conference Call 
If Daughters of Earth is calling your name but you're unsure, join me on Jan 13th. Let's get cozy with a mess of quilts, a cup of tea, and have ourselves a heart to heart chat. Get a feel for what Daughters of Earth is all about, the intentions and goals surrounding this circle, about the DoE magazine/podcast launch members will participate and contribute with, or simply ask the growing question, "what is the difference between the Apothecary Circle and Daughters of Earth?" :)

I'm looking for the Baba Yagas. The Wild Women living out in the dark, ready and willing to step out, cultivate their Light offering, and build something beautiful for 2013.

This call will be recorded and playback details will be provided afterwards.


Sunday, January 13th 12 pm Pacific Time

Dial-in Number: (605) 475-4000 Access Code: 943191#


See you there!
Love and Blessings,

Inspirations: Goddess Planner & Workbooks

Hello Sweets!

Do you remember when I wrote a post about some good calendars for 2013? Well most of them are Lunar-based of course, but there is one I was holding out on telling you about because it wasn't finished being created yet. They are not Lunar-based BUT they are the reason I am here today writing on this blog! 

They are the 2013 Creating Your Incredible Year Workbooks & Calendars: Life + Business Editions!

I have been ordering the Incredible Year Calendar for the past 4 years or so (it is also only $9.95, so it is a REALLY good deal pocket-book-wise!) and I was completely ecstatic when I saw Leonie also created a BUSINESS edition! This is exactly what I have been looking for to organize all my ideas for my blog and shop and create these dreams into reality. 

If you don't know Leonie, you should. Leonie Dawson is the goddess and creatrix of some UH-mazing courses and workbooks. She completely radiates positivity, abundance and passion. She is probably the most uplifting person I have ever come across ever, and she is so inspiring. 

I knew I wanted to help women, but I wasn't sure how. I would sit in my dorm room imagining a beautiful wellness center where women could come and heal and be in a sacred community. I wanted it to be an old cottage renovated for my healing center, with rooms for yoga, meditation, spa and reiki healing, and a beautiful yard women could gather for Full Moon rituals, and have their own plot for a garden. Ummmmm, I still want that! I am manifesting that into fruition one way or the other in this life! But Leonie opened my eyes to the possibility of an online sanctuary, connecting women all around the world. 

I was so excited, I purchased her calendar and Business Course (another reason I am here today!). And I am so happy I did.

Working through these courses and workbooks gave me a clear direction and purpose for all the ideas dancing in my head. 

I actually had a well thought out and PRACTICAL business plan to make these dreams into reality. Not to mention a reawakening of my joys and passions, propelling me forward to take these steps. It became apparent to me what my gifts are and what I, Marissa, could offer to the world. After that, everything fell into place and Moondaughter was created!

I bought the combo pack (only $17.95!) for the Life and Business edition and I am so excited to dive in. Her pages are so bright and vibrant and exude radiance. I am so inspired to make my 2013 be the best year yet.

I already have big dreams for Moondaughter in 2013! I am in the works of my own Lunar Calendar for 2014, Goddess workshops, and more! I know using these worksheets I will be able to manifest what I want and more, because I have already done so in the years past using these gems. 

I just had to share this with you all. These tools have helped me out so much and I know they can help you too. I am also an affiliate, so if you do feel called to purchase these it will be helping me out as well :)

I hope you all have a gorgeous day and remember to always follow your passions and dreams! The Universe WILL provide the exact resources, connections, and tools you need to manifest them, I promise!

Love and Blessings,
Marissa Moondaughter



I know I only mentioned the Business Course for just a second, but I must say this is the most useful and powerful tool I have found that has everything you need to know about how to start an online business and website from scratch. I knew NOTHING, I just knew what I wanted to do. Through this I learned practical tools to make a website, mailing lists, budgeting, marketing tips -- She puts EVERYTHING in this course. It is so so thorough and I would not be where I am without it! So if you need some direction to bring your business dreams to the next level this is it. I still use this course to this day and probably always will.
