O, Madria Graca, (Grace-a) Guardian of Compassion, Love and Mercy, be with us.
“March 21 st: Eostre, Goddess of Spring. Rebirth of Nature, Happiness. Care for all young
creatures and plants”. http://www.fellowshipofisis.com/jc/jcmar.pdf
My predessesors in the faith, would relight their household and altar candles and hearth fires. (Gas fired central heating boilers and gas ovens and hobs).
TEA and TEPHI,
Milesian Princesses, founders of Tara. (Macalister, Tara, p. 167)
“There was also a celebration in Tara held on the occasion of the Vernal Equinox; and here also there was a sacred fire lit, from which all other fires had to be kindled”.
Because this is also the Deanic New Year, the whole year as it begins on a Moonday / Monday is protected by Janya:
O, Lady Candra, Guardian of Reflection, Reason and Purity, be with us.

Official Clan Jana Feast of the Dove
1 Columbina / March 21: Feast of the Dove / Columba:
Mystery: The Dove of Peace: The Holy Daughter, Di Jana, as the Holy Soul of the World, which is a description of the divine presence within creation. The Holy Daughter as the Resurrection of our souls.
Persephone with doves
She is the Soteria (feminine Greek word for Saviour) of the World.
Great Dove of the World, in Janite thealogy, this title is appropriate for the Holy Daughter. She is the Ruler and Sustainer of the World as well as its Regeneration.

In this Mystery, we visualize the Dove as hovering over the Primordial Waters. The aspects of the Element of Water are emotions, intuition, the deeper Mysteries, compassion, new beginnings (as in Spring renewal), the Fountain of Life, Grace, the Rivers or Streams of Life, Divine Energies and Priestesshood.
Holy Spirit Dove, Divine Grace above the Waters of Life

I also have a unique hand made glass fused Dove pendant to wear.
I shall be during the whole month of Columbina, which means, little dove: March 21-April 17:
