Deanic Matronite Spirituality – Titles of Dea

Deanic Matronite Spirituality – Titles of Dea

Hello Folks,
I am sharing ArchMatrona Georgia’s letter and document.
I am probably not the only one to agree with her on this matter.
It is the reason, that I have avoided reading Greek myths.
Sophia Ruth

~~~~~~~

After reading through many Patriarchal legends about the gods and goddesses of various cultures, I got really tired of the character and the deeds of the divine being portrayed as less than all powerful (vulnerable to harm), limited in knowledge (capable of being deceived or seduced) less than virtuous (capable of tricking others or acting dishonourably) and having been created from a strange assortment of original causes (mostly impersonal). So, I decided to write out a Matriarchal list of the titles of Dea emphasizing Her Sovereignty, Her Virtue and Her Motherhood.

Deanic Matronite Spirituality – Titles of Dea

I: Queen of Heaven (the Cosmea)

Annual, Cosmos Bipinnatus, Summer Colour, Versailles

Annual, Cosmos Bipinnatus, Summer Colour, Versailles

The cosmea (Cosmos bipinnatus) is an annual plant from the sunflower family (Asteraceae). https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmea
Cosmea or Cosmos; flower meaning ‘peaceful’
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/120189883775334520/

The name “cosmea” is derived from the word “cosmos” meaning “peaceful-harmonious-orderly”. Dea is the Generatrix of Peace-Harmony-Order. [Dea is the Power which dispells War-Conflict-Confusion]. Dea is symbolically described as the Supernal Sun and “the cosmea”, a sunflower, is aptly named in Her honour.

Notes
An annual plant completes its life cycle from germination to seed within one year. Examples are spring wheat and hemp . The plant dies off after the seed set, such as in spring wheat or die at the end of the year. Annuals are among the monocarpic ic plants.

Dea is Sovereign [Free-Peaceful]: Freedom (Liberty) and Calm (Tranquility)

Her Authority and Her Powers are Supreme and Self-determined.
She is the Source and Origin of All Government and All Influence.
Her Position is Self-generated and Self-sustained.
Nothing about Her is defined by, derived from, or dependent upon, a relation to, any male gods: father, uncle, consort, husband, brother, or son.
Her Powers are All-knowing, All-controlling and Ever-present.
No one and nothing can be hidden from Her, deceive Her, thwart Her will, be lost by Her, be taken from Her, or be separated from Her presence.
Her Rule is Liberating and Calming.
She frees from Bondage and Anxiety

II: Guardian of Virtue (the Good)

Dea is Virtuous [Good-Honorable]:
Eternal Life (the River & the Tree), Eternal Light (the Lamp & the Word), Eternal Love (the Well & the Flower)

All of the Virtues (Goodness-Righteousness) are derived from Her Character.
All of the Vices (Evil-Wickedness) are in opposition to Her Character.
She is in charge of both Life and Death.
Life always triumphs over Death.
She is in control of both Light and Darkness.
Light always wins over Darkness.
She is in command of both Love and Hate.
Love always vanquishes Hate.

III: Mother of All (the Creatrix)

creātrix f ‎(genitive creātrīcis); third declension 1. A female who brings forth or produces; a mother. 2. A female founder, authoress, creatrix.  https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/creatrix

Dea is the Ancestor (the Matriarch): Parent (the Matrix of All Genders)

1. matrix an enclosure within which something originates or develops (from the Latin for womb)
http://www.finedictionary.com/matrix.html

She is the Founding Mother of all Families
All Life Forms: Divine, Angelic, Nature Spirit, Human, Animal, Plant, or Other, are generated by (emanated from) Her Person.

I have been trying to find the connections between the Deanic and Norse cosmologies for a long time. It was only in the process of setting up a chart based on the Deanic pattern, and then filling in the Norse correspondences, that the connections between them beame readily apparent, and made sense. My next project is to do something similar for the Deanic and Celtic cosmologies.

Sacred Month of Grace May 16 – June 12

Sacred Month of Grace May 16 – June 12

For my predecessors in the Deanic Faith this month was named Hera. Its sacred meaning of the Heroine Month, or Saint Month.

This is based upon one etymology among several.
There were 2 groups of Madrians, 1 the publicity seeking, lesbian separatists and 2 the more secretive gendar inclusive group from which Clan Jana originates. So in future I will number the source Madrian1 and Madrian2.

“Hera as being someone who ultimately has achieved their Sacred Moments. They no longer need to incarnate and they are assumed and Transformed into Pure Love and live in Perfect Union with the Holy One, Our Divine Mother God. Though a person has achieved enlightenment, that does not necessarily mean that they have been assumed into the Supernal Realm. We can think of Quan Yin as an example. I also don’t necessarily equate achieving enlightenment, or what I call Gnosis with being Transformed into Perfect Love. I don’t really think miracles are necessary. That is more of a Catholic requirement.”
ArchMadria Pamela of Clan Jana

“Just because a Hera is able to perform miracles, it doesn’t necessarily follow that we need proof of them.”
Madria Kathi

In the Madria Olga Lotar Documents, the definition of an Hera is: “A spiritually advanced soul, who has gained enlightenment or Realization and is able to perform miracles.” (Madrian2).

The Madrian1 definition: “A hera is someone who has attained spiritual perfection and freed herself from the wheel of birth and death. They are concerned with helping others to follow them and may take human form”.

Etymology
“The name of Hera admits a variety of mutually exclusive etymologies; one possibility is to connect it with Greek ὥρα hōra, season, and to interpret it as ripe for marriage and according to Plato ἐρατή eratē, “beloved”[4] as Zeus is said to have married her for love.[5] According to Plutarch, Hera was an allegorical name and an anagram of aēr (ἀήρ, “air”).[6] So begins the section on Hera in Walter Burkert’s Greek Religion.[7] In a note, he records other scholars’ arguments “for the meaning Mistress as a feminine to Heros, Master.” John Chadwick, a decipherer of Linear B, remarks “her name may be connected with hērōs, ἥρως, ‘hero’, but that is no help, since it too is etymologically obscure.”[8] A. J. van Windekens,[9] offers “young cow, heifer”, which is consonant with Hera’s common epithet βοῶπις (boōpis, “cow-eyed”). R. S. P. Beekes has suggested a Pre-Greek origin.[10] Her name is attested in Mycenaean Greek written in the Linear B syllabic script as 𐀁𐀨, e-ra, appearing on tablets found in Pylos and Thebes.[11]”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hera

HERA was the Queen of the gods, and goddess of the sky, women and marriage.
Her Greek myths http://www.theoi.com/Olympios/HeraMyths.html

Hera

The polos is the only attribute of the Queen of Heaven
“Portrayed as majestic and solemn, often enthroned, and crowned with the polos (a high cylindrical crown worn by several of the Great Goddesses)…”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hera

Negatives:
Revenge on Zeus
Hera was a very jealous and vengeful wife. She wanted Zeus all to herself, but Zeus cheated on her constantly with other goddesses and with mortal women. Hera often took out her revenge on the women who Zeus loved and the children they had with Zeus.

Heracles
One example of Hera’s revenge is the story of the hero Heracles who was Zeus’s son by the mortal woman Alcmene. Hera first tried to kill Heracles as a baby by sending two serpents to his bed, but this failed when Heracles killed the serpents. She later caused Heracles to go mad and kill his wife and children. As punishment for killing his family, Heracles was forced to perform the Twelve Labors. Hera made these labors as difficult as possible, hoping that Heracles would be killed.

Some of the women and goddesses that Hera exacted revenge on included Callisto, Semele, Io, and Lamia.

A nymph named Echo was given the job of distracting Hera from Zeus’s affairs. When Hera discovered what Echo was doing, she cursed Echo into only repeating the last few words that others said to her (this is where the modern word “echo” comes from).”

~~~~~~~

This name was chosen to replace the Roman month of Juno/June.

Etymology
“The name Juno was also once thought to be connected to Iove (Jove), originally as Diuno and Diove from *Diovona.[4] At the beginning of the 20th century, a derivation was proposed from iuven- (as in Latin iuvenis, “youth”), through a syncopated form iūn- (as in iūnix, “heifer”, and iūnior, “younger”). This etymology became widely accepted after it was endorsed by Georg Wissowa.[5]”

Iuuen- is related to Latin aevum and Greek aion (αιών) through a common Indo-European root referring to a concept of vital energy or “fertile time”.[6] The iuvenis is he who has the fullness of vital force.[7] In some inscriptions Jupiter himself is called Iuuntus, and one of the epithets of Jupiter is Ioviste, a superlative form of iuuen- meaning “the youngest”.[8] Iuventas, “Youth”, was one of two deities who “refused” to leave the Capitol when the building of the new Temple of Capitoline Jove required the exauguration of deities who already occupied the site.[9] Juno is the equivalent to Hera, the Greek goddess for love and marriage. Juno is the Roman goddess of love and marriage. Ancient etymologies associated Juno’s name with iuvare, “to aid, benefit”, and iuvenescendo, “rejuvenate”, sometimes connecting it to the renewal of the new and waxing moon, perhaps implying the idea of a moon goddess.[10]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juno_(mythology)

hera1

Deanic Etymology

“Some etymologists would prefer to assume Juno’s name is derived from a word meaning “youth” as in “juvenile”, and that Juno is a personification of the “youthful” or “new” moon. In my mind, this assumption is a clear case of Patriarchal “solarization” of all things masculine and “lunation” of all things feminine. To me, Ju-no, like Ju-peter are the feminine and masculine forms of the same title. The initial syllible Ju/Deju from “deiywu” means “divine” literally “shining”, “daylight sky”, (not “moonlight night”). The second syllables ”no” or “peter” designate the gender of the person as feminine/queen/mother or masculine/king/father. So Ju-no means Divine/Shining-Queen Mother as Ju-peter means Divine/Shining-King/Father.”
ArchMatrona Georgia

~~~~~~~

Cults of Juno were well established in the Italic states surrounding Rome from antiquity. She was the principle deity of many towns, representing rulership and strength.

Juno was also widely connected with women’s issues. In Latium and Rome, she was the goddess of childbirth in her guise of Juno Lucina. To Ovid, the name ‘Lucina’ is derived from lux or in the plural form luces- the latin for ‘light’, particularly daylight.

Cicero , on the other hand associated it with lucere ‘to shine,’ specifically the moon at night and attributed the name to Juno because of this connection between the moon and the length of pregnancy.

June: The Month of Juno?

As Rome’s Queen of the gods, Juno’s transformation was complete. ‘I love no nation more’ says the Juno of Ovid’s Fasti.

But did the Roman’s love their chief goddess enough to name the month of June after her?

The Ovid’s Juno certainly believed this was the case. “Why call me regina ‘queen’ and princeps goddess, why place the golden sceptre in my hand? Shall days or luces make a month and title me ‘lucina’ and I draw no month’s name?” says the goddess.

But in the Fasti, other dieties appear to argue against Juno’s belief. The goddess Juventas claims that June is named – like Juno herself – from the iuventas, the young people, one of the two age specific groups Romulus divided the roman people into.

The Goddess Concordia attributes the month’s name to an event from the same era but this time referring to iunctus-the joining of the Roman and Sabine communities.

But interestingly, according to Macrobius’s Saturnalia , the month of June was known as Junonius or ‘of juno’ by the Latins of Aricia and Praeneste (1.12.30), suggesting the Roman’s may have inherited the name of the month along with the goddess.

The jury is out on whether the Romans named June after their queen of the gods. But she is certainly the goddess we most associate with the month today.

Hera and Juno – the similarities and differences

“Most of the people thought that Juno was just a counterpart of Hera, and the only difference between them is the country their myths came from, but now we know that Juno and Hera were not just similar in every way but different in some ways also. Hera was the goddess who was famous for her jealousy of her husband’s, Zeus’s, girlfriends and her vengeful nature while Juno wasn’t. She was more of the protective calm mother. Juno was associated with the moon, and was called the moon goddess, but Hera had nothing to do with moons.”
http://myths.e2bn.org/mythsandlegends/userstory20445-hera-vs-juno.html

“Juno’s own warlike aspect among the Romans is apparent in her attire. She often appeared sitting pictured with a peacock[3] armed and wearing a goatskin cloak. The traditional depiction of this warlike aspect was assimilated from the Greek goddess Hera, whose goatskin was called the ‘aegis’.”

Clan Jana – Charis [KAR-is] meaning Grace.

Joseph H. Thayer made some significant observations concerning the meaning of charis: “that which affords joy, pleasure, delight, sweetness, charm, loveliness…good-will, loving-kindness, favor… charis is used pre-eminently of that kindness by which God [Dea] bestows favors even upon the ill-deserving, and grants to sinners the pardon of their offences, and bids them accept of eternal salvation through Christ [Di Jana].”

Psalm 98 – Our Lady reigns, let the people rejoice

Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of Heaven

PSALM 98: Our Lady Reigns

Our Lady Reigns, let the people rejoice: She sits on the High Throne of Heaven. Great in Ekklesia is Thy glory, O Lady: and in Cosmos,
shines forth Thy magnificence. Sing before Her, ye harmonious choirs: and adore Her throne, for it is holy. In Her Flames the Fire of Love
and round about Her are those who worship Her. Her Seven Laws are before our eyes: and the rule of compassion is in Her heart.

Psalter of Our Lady
These 150 psalms are taken from the Psalter of the Blessed Virgin Mary written by St. Bonaventure and have been painstakingly adapted by
Mr Glenn King and Madria Pamela Lanides. These psalms are taken from the Living Stream in the West.

For the most part, we have removed archaic language however, Thee and Thou, when referring to Our Lady, denotes honor and the respect
that is due to Her.

Our thanks to Mr. King for this valuable service to the Filianic/Deanic community.

Prayer to Ishtar

Queen of Heaven, Goddess of the Universe,
You are the holy one of women and men.
The one who walked in terrible chaos,
And brought life by the law of love,
And out of chaos brought us harmony,
And from chaos She has led us by the hand.

Woman of women, Goddess knows no equal,
She who decrees the destiny of people,
Highest Ruler of the Worlds,
Sovereign of the Heavens,
Goddess, even of those who live in heaven.
With Ishtar, there is counsel and wisdom.

The fate of everything She holds in Her hand.
Joy comes from Her every glance.
She is the power, the magnificence.
She is the Spirit that guides.
Be it maiden or mother,
Women remember Her,
And call Her name, O Shining One.

You stop the anger of all other deities.
You care for the oppressed and the mistreated,
Each day offering them your help.
You are the one who gleams the brightest,
In the midst of all other deities.

Exaltia

Exaltia

Black Madonna Mother of God of Ostra Brama, Mother of Mercy Lithuania, Vilna

Our Lady is exalted among the daughters of Heaven.

Shining Inanna, Star of the Sea,

Robed in celestial light.

She abases the cruel and proud,

And hearkens to the plea of the lowly.

The rich who deny her godhead find not contentment,

But blessed is the humblest of Her servants.

She delivers the captive into Her care,

And takes the hand of the fallen.

May the whole world praise Thee, beloved Inanna,

May Thy glory be told of in all the earth.

Let them exalt Thy dominion

And Thy valiant courage

And glorify Thy holy Name.

Have mercy on Thy servant who gives Thee blessing

And take Thy servant’s hand in need and suffering.

In illness and distress give Thy servant the gift of life

May Thy servant go forever in joy and delight

To magnify Thy holy Name

Before all the peoples of the world.

The earliest surviving version of this prayer is about 4,000 years old

I make this gender neutral by replacing her with their, them, they and she with Thy servant.

I have a small booklet Mythos of the Divine Maid, it is at the back of that and also in The Sacred Myths and Rites of the Madrians by Philip Jackson on page 47 and 48. My version is on a smaller page and has hand drawn flowering borders but the wording is exactly the same. I did not find the ancient version (4,000 years old) on the internet, as it came from a book or manuscript in the 1970s.

Feast of Coronation / Exaltation of Di Jana as Queen of Heaven – Regina Coeli

Feast of Coronation / Exaltation of Di Jana as Queen of Heaven – Regina Coeli

My predecessors in the Deanic Faith, celebrated this on 14th Maia / 1st May alongside Maia’s Day. This is far too confusing. I celebrate it on the crescent moon. Clan Jana celebrate on the last Sunday of Maia – 28th, this year 14th May.

This is the first time that I have performed (and adapted) the The Moonrite of Gifts of Clan Jana, even though I did not have all the correct equipment, may Dea forgive me. 23rd Maia / 10th May: (4 days after the Dark Moon): Crescent Moon. (For the Holy Daughter).

We celebrate Di Jana as Queen of Heaven, received by the children of Heaven and crowned by the high Janati. We are reminded that through Di Jana, meaning gateway, we shall return to Madria Dea (Mother God). If you have a statue, do crown Her with flowers. All present should ideally wear white. It is a joyous day and there is a legend that those with joyful hearts can laugh roses for the Queen of Heaven.

25 Verses
Title 1, Chapter 10
THE HOLY MYTHOS
Chapter 10

9. When the time was at hand, two high Janati [replacing archangels] descended, one on either side of Her, and She went with them into heaven. 10. The children of heaven greeted Her, crying: “Hail, princess of the world; hail, queen of heaven.” And they placed a crown of stars about Her head.
11. The blue night was Her cloak, and the stars of the sky the crown about Her head, and the moon lay at Her feet. They cried again: “Hail, queen of heaven.” 12. Thus began Her dear and glorious reign; and for the children of heaven, Her very presence was the completion of their joy. 13. And She poured forth Her grace and blessing from Her hands upon them and upon the earth. And Her grace and blessing were as rays of perfect light which penetrate the heart and flood the soul.
14. She said to them: “Do not forget your sisters of the earth, but move yourselves among them and hear their voices; lend them succour and breathe with them in their upward aspiration. 15. And when a soul in true devotion passes from the earth, lead her to the portal of heaven and the garden of Abalon [replacing Avala], and give her rest, and provision her with treasures of the Spirit to help her on her way.”
16. And She entered the great temple of heaven, where the spirits of earth’s children were gathered at the sacrifice, even as their souls were gathered on the earth. 17. Then She stood at the great altar and took up a wheaten loaf, and spoke, saying: 18. “Like to the grains, My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] was cut down by the scythe of separation and suffering [replacing death]; and like to the grains did it rise anew. 19. For I am the ear of grains that is reaped in silence.” 20. She said: “Like to the grains my soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] was broken between the stones of separation and suffering [replacing death].” And saying thus, She broke the bread between Her hands.
21. And She gave the fragments of the bread to the spirits of earth’s children, saying: “Here is My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] that is broken for you. Eat My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body], that you may be one with My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body], and may be one soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] in Me.”
22. Then She poured out Her Spirit from hands into a great chalice, and Her Spirit lay as wine within the chalice. 23. She said: “Even as you have offered Me bread in sacrifice, so I give you the bread of My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body]; and as you have poured out libations of wine to Me, so I pour out the eternal libation of My eternal Spirit.” 24. And as it is performed above in the Spirit, so is it
reflected below in the soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] and the spirit, and through the reflection do earth’s children have
part in the real. 25. So were the things that are told in this book reflected in the hearts of the children of Dea [replacing maids], that all might read them and draw closer to She that acted them.

Notes:
1:9:16: “Archangels,” or “Geniae” in other versions.

A: The Creed of Clan Jana

I believe in the Eternal One, Dea Madria; I believe that She is One and that She is also Three.

~
I believe in the Celestial Mother; She Who is Pure Light and Essence; the Matrix of the Earth and of the Heavens and of all the infinite cosmos.

~
I believe in Her Holy Daughter; She Who is Perfect Love and Form; the Ruler of all the energies of creation; She Who is the Holy Soul of the World.

~
And I believe that there is She Who stands beyond these Two, Whose Name has not been spoken upon this Earth; She Who is Pure Life and Source, for She is the Beginning and the End, the First Principle and the Final Cause, the unoriginated Origin of Being, the Great Mother of all that is and all that is not; She Who Is.

~
I believe in the Seven Janati, the Seven Great Powers of Dea. I believe that they are the Seven Living Streams of Virtue who flow from the Mother and that guided by these Living Streams, I will rise to Perfection and eternally abide in the Supernal Realm of Her Love.

Blessed is She.

Commander of the roaring wave, help us to turn from all that is low or inglorious neither with anger nor with pain, but to know that in You we stand above all such things.

Guiding Light of the faithful soul, fill the deepest caverns of our spirit with the exhilaration of Your love. Send us forth upon the world as torchbearers of Your delight and grant us strength in You and in ourselves that we may value all things rightly, regardless of the consuming weight of the profane and the frailty of all that is beautiful.

Di Jana as Princess of the World

Di Jana as Princess of the World

Spiritual Guide and Tutor in how to live a Spiritual Life on the manifest planes (all worlds).

Di Jana Princess of the World

Di Jana as Soul of the World, descended (Her Holiness suffered in ways beyond our knowing) and gathered souls from every plane of manifestation, even from the lowest depths of Hell. She remained upon the manifest planes, and taught and governed in such a manner that all children of Dea may live in the manifest planes by the Spirit’s Divine Light and we may follow Her Holiness and tread the pathways to Heaven.

Artist: Vladimir Suvorov

If our soul requires further training / advancement to achieve Perfect Love and Union then we rest for a short time in Di Jana’s Paradise, a Heavenly World of Her Love, the Western Isle, or Abalon: Old Celtic form of Avalon which means land of apples.

Glossary of Clan Jana
In ancient Rome, Diva Jana or Di-Jana also means Divine Gate. For Clan Jana, the Holy Daughter is the Divine Gate of Gentle Light through Whom we find our way back to Union in Perfection. In this way, She is considered Soteria, Saviouress.

Title 1, Chapter 10
THE HOLY MYTHOS
Chapter 10

4. …And She showed them how to offer sacrifice to the Mother of All Things. 5. And She said, “When the time has come for Me to go from you, I shall still be with You and shall never leave you, not for one fragment of an hour until we are together in completion. 6. But I shall unite you all who love Me in one great soul; [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] 7. the highest and the lowest, the living and the dead, those who falter at the door, and those who have climbed to the highest tower, all shall be one in My soul [replacing “body” as Di Jana does not have a body] which I have given to the world, and all shall be nourished by My Spirit.”
8. And they did not understand Her, but only wept that She must leave them. And She spoke no more of this, but taught them, and revealed many hidden things, such as though they may fill a hundred books.

As of now I call this group of psalms simply The Psalms of Thea. Check this
https://theahaus.files.wordpress.com/2015/08/psalms-to-thea-2-docx.pdf

PSALM 118F – How Have I Loved Your Law

How have I loved your law, O Lady? It is forever in my sight.
The abundance of your love has drawn my heart out of me:
And my flesh has wonderfully rejoiced in thee.
How sweet are your words, O Lady,
above all song they are precious to my ears.
Your words are light to my steps: and illumination to my paths.
How often have my sins conquered me?
But because I will not stray from your love I will be redeemed.
In you, O Lady have I hoped.
