I was overwhelmed by the power of the God yesterday. I spend so much time with the Goddess, connecting with her and honoring her, that it is easy for me to forget just how powerful the pull of the God is at times. Walking in the woods yesterday, on a gorgeous, but warmer than normal autumn day, he made his presence felt very strongly. It was not a subtle feeling; more of a masculine call that he knew would be obeyed. Once he is obeyed, he is very generous and kind, though I get the feeling that he is used to be obeyed while he is in his power. Five is a power number for him. Mountain laurel and red maple are power plants.
