Goddess For Today:  Nuvak'chin'Mana
Hopi Kachina Dances
(Southwestern United States)
Themes:  Ghosts (Spirits); Blessings; Weather; Winter
Symbols:  Cold Items; White; Moisture
About Nuvak'chin'Mana:  This Goddess's name means Snow Maiden.  In the Niman festival, Nuvak'chin'Mana is a Kachina who appears to pray for the return of cold weather so the moisture in the earth gets replenished.  In our lives, she comes to replenish the well of our spirits and cool any overheated tempers that erupt with summer's heat.
To Do Today: In Hopi tradition, Kachinas are spirits that help the tribe in all matters of life.  Each year the Kachinas emerge around February to remind people of their blessings and to teach the sacred rituals that bring rain.  Around this time of year, the Kachinas return to their rest, escorted out of the human realms by the Niman ritual. 
To bring Nuvak'chin'Mana's coolheadedness and refreshing energy to your entire day, drink a glass of milk on the rocks at breakfast, lunch, and dinner (or anytime in between).  It's very refreshing, and the appearance of the beverage honors the Goddess.  If your region has been suffering from a dry spell, pour out a little of the milk and ice on the ground as an offering to Nuvak'chin'Mana so she might carry your need for rain to the nature spirits.
Last, take a moment at some point during the day to thank the Powers for all your blessings.  A grateful heart is one ready to give and receive more of the Goddess!
