Lupercalia Candle *Seasonal Exclusive*
Seasonal Candle *Exclusive* Only 100 made – available while supplies last!
Lupercalia, a mysterious “pagan” (non-christian) holiday that’s been christ-washed & rebranded many times since pre-Roman history. The truth of the holiday can be found amongst the historic symbolism found in the celebrations of ancestors long ago. In origin, Lupercalia was a feast & celebration of the wolf goddess, sex, fertility & purification. At various times throughout history, Lupercalia’s story has been warped by patriarchs to celebrate & sanctify their problematic fantasies, behaviors & re-interpretations of the worst kind. Many argue that Lupercalia was stolen & rebranded into St. Valentine’s Day…which is also horrifically problematic.
So I invite you to instead celebrate your inner wolf goddexx, sexuality, passion, desire, fertility, creativity &/or purification February 14th-15th. Write a love letter, an erotic fantasy, or affirmation of your sexuality &/or creative power & place it beneath the candle. Let the ignition of the flame begin a celebration of unbridled pleasure, love & creation however fits your authenticity. Draw a love or milk bath, wear red & white, fuck in the name of the wolf goddess, etc! Pray over & charge your candle with your hands atop it, then light it.
