Happy New Year to all! May this lovely full blue moon bring you light and happiness that will stay with you throughout the year!
Alahtin is the Chumash Goddess of the moon. The Chumash of southern California say that her light serves to purify the world. Alahtin lives in the Upper World, which is held up by the wings of Slo’w, the Great Eagle. At some times of the month, her light is obscured by Slo’w stretching out his wings. Alahtin also governs health, particularly women’s menses.
