🐺LUPERCALIA🌖
may your intentions be pure, your home & body healthy, may you make offerings that are beautiful, & sacrifices that are meaningful, and may you NOT GO TO THE WOLVES TONIGHT😉

Like most things, at the origins of Valentine's Day lay deep in the old pre-Roman tradition of a blood sacrifice to the wolves, for fertility for the people & the earth in the beginning of the growing season.

So while I could care less for the forced romance, chocolates & hot house roses, I'm all for donning your reds, making offerings to loved ones, and planting seeds for a new fertile season.

Like this little cone who's seeds I'm popping out for a tiny ritual planting.

Let's all be reminded of the fertility, beauty & wild magic of our world, today, & celebrate all kinds of love: self-love, love between friends, family love, couples love, loving strangers, neighbors, our ancestors, familiars, non-human others & those whom we ignore, or find hard to love. ❤️
HOW WILL Y'ALL CLAIM THIS HOLIDAY?

Wild And Crazy Romans

From Feb. 13 to 15, the Romans celebrated the feast of #Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain. Absolutely no slaying of animals for this holiday in the studio.

Happy Lupercalia everyone. Valentine's day originated from a festival called Lupercalia. In the 5th century in Rome, people would drag puppies (yes, puppies, not dogs) and goats into a cave, ritually slaughter them, skin them, and wear their skin as thongs. Then, the high-up men in society would take off their thongs and run around town slapping people with them. Women would "pretend to run" but they actually wanted to get slapped, because in the mens eyes, this would "render the woman fertile." Naked, bloody men, running around slapping people with the hides of puppies, to show that they are in control of a woman's womb. way later on, the pope was like fuck this, and change the holiday to something more positive. it turned from slapping women to giving them flowers, and now to all of big business america selling their souls for people to spend money on candy and plastic to show you that if you take this one RANDOM ASS day to show someone you love them, then its real. Please remember the origins while you eat chocolate and throw away your heart trash. Don't get me wrong, I think any time that people come together for love is beautiful but DO YOUR GODDAMN RESEARCH DON'T JUST SIT AROUND AND CELEBRATE SHIT THAT AMERICA TELLS YOU TO. Let's celebrate by loving ourselves, and say a prayer for all the dead puppies. beautiful costumes by @dieufabuleux #valentinesday #lupercalia #commerciallove
