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.

Version (Second Edition, Third Update)
Title 1, Chapter 10
THE HOLY MYTHOS
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.
1:9:16: “Archangels,” or “Geniae” in other versions.
O, Dea, Supernal Sun,
O, Dea, Supernal Moon,
O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom,
O, Dea Dea, Star of Hope,
O, Dea, Fora of Faith,
O, Dea, Dove of Peace,
O, Dea, Rose of Joy,
A: We thank You, we bless You and we adore You; for through Your Compassionate Love, we are infused with Your Luminous Graces and are sheltered beneath Your Great Mantle of Protection. Blessed is She.
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.
Preparation of the Gifts.
A: Silver Star of the Waters, Who has laughed all the world into being, beyond all knowing is the splendour of Your Light. Enfold my spirit in Your Mighty hand so that the Pure Stream of Your Light may flow through me, in this world and in all the worlds to come. Blessed is She.

H: Holds the plate of bread and then the chalice of wine in the smoke of incense with both hands and says: O, Madria Dea, may these gifts be sanctified in Your Name. In the Name of the Mother, and of the Daughter, and of the Great Mother . Blessed is She.
Yot ‘E Voh
H: Let us offer libation to the (Celestial Mother), (the Holy Daughter), (The Great Mother, She Who Is). H then pours a portion of the wine from the chalice into the libation bowl. She then dips her two forefingers into libation bowl of wine and sprinkles a few drops onto the Sacrifice of bread.. This action is repeated three times. She then traces the Fora again over the bread.
H: O, (Celestial Mother), ( O, Holy Daughter), (O, Great Mother, Mysteria), as we drink Your Wine and eat of Your Bread, may Your Divine Spirit be infused within our being.
(Everyone present is offered the chalice (or the wine may be poured into very small glasses and distributed) and the sacred bread. Any remaining wine in the chalice is either consumed by the H or is poured out onto the ground at the end of the Rite. The libation bowl is to be reserved until the Rite is complete.
(This is a time for meditation, contemplation, teachings, prayer, rituals, divination, sacred dance, etc.)
