In Constantinople (modern-day Istanbul), there is the cathedral known as the Haggia Sophia. Dedicated to Goddess Sophia, this temple celebrates the central idea of many an ancient philosophy, the Sophia or Wisdom principle. This Divine Wisdom is by many considered the mother of God.

Hindu tradition reveres the Goddess Kali Ma, consort of Lord Shiva and the goddess of time and change. She is the dark side of Mother. She will clear your consciousness of old thoughts, old habits, old demons that won’t let you go. But it may not be a willing or easy change. And so Kali Ma represents the determined aspect of Mother, the mother that will not let her children fail.
And so, we celebrate the Divine Feminine, the Mother Principle, the Soul, the Law, the Nurturer.
