Rhea/Anna Perenna/Ides Of March
The Ides of March. This date is famous as that on which Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 BCE. It is also a holy day of Rhea, Greek goddess of the earth, mother of Zeus, and an aspect of the Great Mother. Traditionally, river sprites or nymphs are acknowledged on the Ides of March.

All That Has Never Yet Been Spoken — Rainer Maria Rilke
I believe in all that has never yet been spoken.
I want to free what waits within me
so that what no one has dared to wish for
may for once spring clear
without my contriving.
If this is arrogant, God, forgive me,
but this is what I need to say.
May what I do flow from me like a river,
no forcing and no holding back,
the way it is with children.
Then in these swelling and ebbing currents,
these deepening tides moving out, returning,
I will sing you as no one ever has,
streaming through widening channels
into the open sea.
“Keep in mind: know that deeper sense of Self that’s really there waiting to be recognized.” — T.S.
