According to a central myth, Cybele was the first Being to come into existence Primordial Deity. Both male and female, Cybele contained within Herself the origins of all things. But Cybele was lonely, and desired a companion -and so She cut off Her masculine genitals and used them to create Attis -Lord of the physical world. Thus Primordial Deity divided Herself between Female (Spirit) and Male (Matter), just as in the Vangello delle Streghe. The physical world took form, and Cybele and Attis lived happily in it. But in time Attis came to die, gored by a wild boar, and went into the land of Death to become the consort of Persephone, Goddess of the Dead. Grief stricken Cybele struck a deal with Persephone, allowing Attis to spend half the year with each of Them, thus establishing the seasons and the cycle of Death and...

Skills ensured less painful childbirth, which was considered contrary to the curse of God that the daughters of Eve should bear children in sorrow. So midwives were a prime target for the new persecutions and were often accused of sacrificing babies to the Devil. Given the high rate of infant mortality, this allegation was hard to refute, and a grieving mother might easily blame the midwife for the death of her infant.
The chronicler Monstrelet says Notwithstanding his many atrocious cruelties, he made a very devout end, full of penitence, most humbly imploring his Creator to have mercy on his manifold sins and wickedness. When his body was partly burned, some ladies and damsels of his family requested his remains of the Duke of Brittany, that they might be interred in holy ground, which was granted. The greater part of the nobles of Brittany, more especially those of his kindred, were in the utmost grief and confusion at his shameful death.
This is a ritual for a new beginning after sorrow or loss. You can carry out this ritual for yourself or someone you know who is grieving or unhappy after a betrayal. It is especially healing if you are feeling angry over unjust or cruel treatment, because it can stop any guilt, blame or pain turning inwards and slowing the healing process. You may need to repeat the experience many times. This is an essentially private ritual, but if you are doing it on behalf of someone else, then you might like to invite them to share the experience. * Burn pieces of black wool, cut from a large ball with a knife, not scissors, naming each aspect of your grief and watching it bum away, piece by piece.

I have seen all the works that are done under the sun and, behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind. That which is crooked cannot be made straight and that which is wanting cannot be numbered. I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I have gotten me great wisdom above all that were before me in Jerusalem yea, my heart hath had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. And I applied my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly I perceived that this also was a striving after wind. For in much wisdom is much grief and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

Repeat this same curse to yourself every time you refuse food. The process should last for two weeks - beginning at the full moon, or just after, and ending at the new moon.
