Dawn over St Oswalds

Season of mist: Dawn breaks over the 14th century St Oswald’s Parish Church in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, as the rising sun heralds the beginning of March. Its 212 ft spire was referred to by George Eliot as the ‘finest single spire in England’. My mothers family came from this county. Sorella Sophia of the Janite Tradition.

Celebrating Winter-Star-Tide Lighting the Sun Wheel & Ringing the Silver Branch

From https://deamatronablog.wordpress.com/lighting-the-sun-wheel-ringing-the-silver-branch/

ArchMatrona Georgia

Dear Readers,

The Lady of Light Chantry Celebrates the Winter-Star-Tide (Season) with the “Lighting” of the Sun Wheel and the “Ringing” of the Silver Branch.

The Sun Wheel is similar to a “five candle” Advent Wreath, (with four candles at the four cardinal points and one candle in the one centre point). The Five Candles on the Sun Wheel are Symbolic of 1) the Four High-points or Mid-Seasons (which occur at the Equinoxes and Solstices of the Four Regular Seasons) and 2) the whole of the Fifth Liminal Season, (which falls between the Beginning of Spring at the Winter/Spring Cross Quarter, and the middle of Spring at the Spring Equinox) of the Solar Year.

The Silver Branch (or Silver Bough) is a magical (musical) tool (instrument) made of wood.  The branch  (bough) may be left its natural colour, or, it may be painted silver.  The branch is then decorated with silver “jingle” bells (or other silver bells). The LLC version adds colourful ribbons [like the bells and ribbons attached to a wedding wand]. The purpose of a Silver Branch is to ease the traveller’s passage between worlds.  The following two articles give further detail explanations regarding the nature of a Silver Branch

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silver_Branch

http://spheresoflight.com.au/axismundi/index.php?page=2011-01

See photo and information about The Silver Branch towards the end of the article.

Both the LLC Sun Wheel and the LLC Silver Branch are Deanic adaptations of Norse and Celtic Traditions.

Electryone and Amber

From https://deamatronablog.wordpress.com/2016/11/07/electryone-and-amber/

ArchMatrona Georgia

While doing research on Greek and Roman Goddesses of Light, I was especially intrigued by the discovery of the following goddess, whose genealogy is said to be from both Thea (Titanide of the Sun and Sky) and Tethys (Titanide of Venus and the Sea/Ocean).

Name (Doric) Alectrona (feminine genative of Alector “rooster”)

Name (Greek) Electryone (similar to Electa “amber”)

Name (Roman) Elektryone (similar to Elekta “amber”)

Wanting to know more about Electryone’s connection to “amber”, I did further research until I came upon the following article. 

Electron: Greek Etymology and Baltic Mythology

http://scholarworks.sjsu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1013&context=humanities_pub

I hope you all find this article as fascinating as I did. I had heard that “amber” was referred to as “the tears of the sun” and now I know why.

The LLC Research on Divine Guardian Transport Animals & Moon Goddess

Over the past week, I have done extensive research into the myths related to the Greek-Roman Titanides (after whom The Seven Divine Guardians of The Lady of Light Chantry are named).  I was particularly looking for clues regarding how these Goddesses were thought to (symbolically) travel (on the spiritual plane) from Heaven to Earth.  I also considered the transport animals of other Greek/Roman Goddesses of similar powers/virtues.  Finally, I compared these transport animals to some of those used by Anglo-Saxon Goddesses of similar powers/virtues.
See the following information below:
https://deamatronablog.wordpress.com/seven-divine-guardian-transport-animals/

The LLC Seven Divine Guardian Transport Animals

1st Kyria Thea (Eos-Aurora or Saule-Sol-Sunna, or Beiwi & Rozhanitza)-Lady Vision, VISION BRINGERS [2 flying sun horses or 2 flying sun reindeer],

2nd Kyria Phoebe (Selene-Luna, & Artemis-Diana)-Lady Clarity, ENCHANTMENT BRINGERS [2 flying moon horses, or 2 flying moon bulls-oxen, or 2 flying moon reindeer],

3rd Kyria Nike (Victoria), Lady Victory, VICTORY HORSES [4 flying horses of the four directional winds],

4th Kyria Metis (Minervas+Muses & Iris or Gna+Valkyries)-Lady Wisdom, MESSENGER HORSE [1 flying messenger horse-with or without wings],

9-griffin_tn
Griffin – Griffon, or Gryphon = Eagle & Lion

5th Kyria Themis (Nemisis)-Lady Justice, AVENGING GRIFFIN [1 flying winged griffin],

6th Kyria Tethys (Quan Yin)-Lady Grace, WATER DRAGON [1 water swimming/flying dragon],

7th Kyria Rhea (Cybele) Lady Patience, PEACEFUL LION [1 leaping lion]

~~~

In researching the imagery for the Titanide/Divine Guardian, Kyria Phoebe/Lady Clarity, I sought to understand how the various Greek-Roman Moon goddesses (Selene-Luna, Artemis-Diana, Hecate-Hekate, Persephone-Proserpina, and a group of Moon Goddesses known as the Menae/Menai) were connected to Her and to each other and to the moon.

I thought it would help if I created a diagram listing the Maternal Genealogies of all the Greek-Roman Moon Goddesses.  I was amazed by what this diagram revealed.

There were three lineages: one from Kyria Thea (the Moon in Heaven), one from Kyria Phoebe (the Moon on Earth), and one from Kyria Rhea (the Moon in Hell aka the Underworld).  This is exactly how we understand the roles of the Divine Mother, the Divine Daughter and the Divine Dark Mother.

For clarity, I also made up descriptive titles explaining just how each goddess is related to the moon.
I also made up titles describing the roles played by the second generation of Goddesses…which are in keeping with the Powers or Virtues of their Titanide Mothers.

The LLC sees the Seven Feminine Planetary Guardians as the Seven Spirits of Dea Matrona [Our Lady].  The seven planetary (“wandering”) heavenly luminaries have been known since ancient times.   Each of these has been associated with one of Seven Spiritual (“Divine”) Powers or Guardians.  The seven-day week, and the names of each week-day, are derived from these seven planets and their names.  The Assyrian and Babylonian names are among the oldest.[1]  The Greek and Roman names came later.  The Anglo-Saxons names are the most modern.   Some names are feminine and others names are masculine.  In the earliest Greek Creation Story, Seven Titanides (“Great Feminine Powers”) and Seven Titans (“Great Masculine Powers”) are named in pairs, by the Great Goddess Eurynome, as the fourteen guardians of the seven planets.[2]  The Titanide names are similar in meaning to the names of the planets they guard, whereas, the Titan names are not.

Notes:

[1] Five planets were identified with the gods of the Babylonian pantheon as follows:
Jupiter with Marduk,
Venus with the goddess Ishtar,
Saturn with Ninurta (Ninib),
Mercury with Nabu (Nebo),
Mars with Nergal.
The movements of the Sun, Moon and five planets were regarded as representing the activity of the five gods in question, together with the moon-god Sin and the Sun-god Shamash

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babylonian_astrology

[2] Titans and Titanides/Titanesses

Eurynome created the Seven Planetary Powers, putting a Titaness and a Titan over each.

13) and still beneath the branches and the bole (trunk) lie the roots in darkness, like unto She that is beyond both being and unbeing. 14) and even as the tree’s roots are not seen, so can there be no knowledge of the Absolute; for to know is to have passed beyond knowledge. (Title 3, Chapter 5 THE SERMON OF THE APPLE SEED).

As the canopy of the tree represents the Love of the Daughter and the trunk represents the Light of the Mother, so do the roots represent the Life of the Great Mother Who is Absolute Deity or the Monas (One). The Great Mother is the Ground of All Being, the Divine Source of the All. Our Celestial Mother and the Holy Daughter find Their completeness within Her.

Some Traditions understand the Great Mother to be similar to the goddess Kali, a goddess of both life and destruction and that is perfectly acceptable from a more Eastern approach to the Divine Feminine Trinity, principally from Shaktism. As such, certain Traditions are careful to not approach the Absolute, directly.

As Janites (along with the Lady of Light Chantry, headed by Rt. Rev. Georgia E. B. Cobb), we tend to be more Western in our approach to the Great Mother. We are Trinitarian-focused in our prayers and rites. We do not fear to approach the Great Mother.

In the same manner, in certain denominations of Christianity, God the Father is understood to be the Ground of All Being/Absolute Deity and yet, the Father is known through His Son and He is worshiped. Christians do not fear to approach the Father.

Tree Roots in the River

Though the Great Mother is the Darkness beyond the light and the Light beyond the darkness and as such, there is much that we cannot know about Her, She is revealed to us through the Divine Mother, the Holy Daughter and especially, through Madria Rhea who represents the Great Mother.

The Great Mother is the Source of the All and so what flows from Her helps us to know Her. She is the Eternal Wellspring of the River of Life and the Eternal Source of the Celestial Mother, of the Holy Daughter, of the Janati and all the living.

Though there is much that is unknowable about the Great Mother, as Our Mother who gave us Life, She knows us, intimately. Though we call Her by Name, that Name is Mystery: Mysteria. (Thanks to ArchMatrona Georgia Cobb.)

The roots, ah the roots in the dark soil, such a fitting analogy for the Great Mother Who is the Root of All Life in Her Shimmering Darkness. In Her Twilight time of day, She is the Sheltering Stars above us. (From our liturgy.) In Her time of the Darkest Hour before the Dawn. She brings us the Light.

12 )Life is the life of the spirit- the First Principle; beyond being and unbeing. Life Was before existence. Life is the cause of existence. 

16) Let her (the soul) not trust the ground her feet are set upon and doubt the Ground upon which that ground stands. Rather, let her doubt the sea, the sky, the fingers of her hand and the breath of her mouth; for all these things may be illusions, as, in some sense, they are.

17) But, let her know Life Divine as the Truth beyond truth and the Faith beyond faith and doubt. (Title 2, Chapter 1 THE CRYSTAL TABLET).

In our day and age, in this time of troubled confusion, many have given up on the idea of faith. They feel it is an outmoded idea and tend to forget the strong roots that Faith can bring into our lives and into our hestias (sacred hearth-homes). But, the tree cannot stand, the tree does not have life without the roots that cannot be seen. So deep into the ground do they go, but, they are there.

Some believe it is folly to believe in that which cannot be seen and yet, we learn from quantum physics that the unseen is the source and potential of all that is seen and so it is with the Great Mother.

We know the Holy Daughter, as visions of Sophia have shown, as the sky above us, as the natural world around us and within each of us because the Holy Daughter is the Soul of the World and She is our soul. We are One with Her and through Her, we are One with the Mother and through Them, we are One with the Great Mother/Absolute Deity, though our finite minds lack complete comprehension of this Great Mystery.

We know the Celestial Mother as the Flame in the temple of our hearts and in the love of every mother for Her child. We know Her through prayer, through aeons of generations, through visions, through scripture and through ageless Tradition.

But the One Absolute Root remains buried deep within the cosmic soil. Hidden. Beyond the soil. Beyond the cosmos. Beyond manifest creation. And yet, without that One Root there would be no manifest creation. There would be no life. No soul. No spirit. No Mother. No Daughter. No Janati. No cosmos. No world. No Heaven. The Great Mother is that Still Centre Point of the great Cosmic Fora from Whom the All flows.

Though She is hidden, though She is Mystery, like the Holy Daughter and the Celestial Mother, we may approach Her as we would a beloved Grandmother. In Her quiet Stillness, in Her luminous Darkness, She is always there, waiting.

The Holy Daughter gives us our soul through Her Love.

The Celestial Mother gives us our spirit through Her Light.

The Great Mother gives us life for She is Life.

And that is enough for us to know. As the scriptures state: 15) And from this tree of all knowledge and of the boundaries beyond which knowledge cannot pass, I have given you but the seed of one apple.  18) But, I am not sent to discourse with you upon these matters, but to lead you to deliverance in Perfection. 19) And all the knowledge that shall bring you to deliverance is contained within the seed of an apple. 22) Therefore, when you think upon the questions of life, of time or of the spheres, contemplate first, the seed of Truth and let your thoughts unfold from that seed. 23) Let the pure and single note of Truth attune your souls. Then, shall mind rise up into soul and soul breathe the breath of Spirit. (Title 3, Chapter 5 THE SERMON OF THE APPLE SEED).

the-norse-goddess-iduna

Idun (pronounced “EE-done;” from Old Norse http://norse-mythology.org/learn-old-norse/ Iðunn, “The Rejuvenating One”[1]) is a goddess who belongs to the Aesir http://norse- mythology.org/gods-and-creatures/the-aesir-gods-and-goddesses/ tribe of deities.

Her role in the pre-Christian mythology and religion of the Norse and other Germanic peoples is unfortunately obscure, but she features prominently in one of the best-known mythological tales, http://norse-mythology.org/tales/ The Kidnapping of Idun. http://norse- mythology.org/tales/the-kidnapping-of-idun/ In this tale, which comes to us from the skaldic http://norse-mythology.org/sources/poem Haustlöng and the Prose Edda, http://norse-mythology.org/sources/ Idun is depicted as the owner and dispenser of a fruit that imparts immortality.

In modern books on Norse mythology, these fruits are almost invariably considered to be
apples, but this wasn’t necessarily the case in heathen times. The Old Norse word for “apple,” epli, was often used to denote any fruit or nut, and “apples” in the modern English sense didn’t arrive in Scandinavia until late in the Middle Ages.[2] Whatever species Idun’s produce belongs to, its ability to sustain the immortality of the gods and goddesses makes Idun an indispensable presence in Asgard. http://norse-mythology.org/cosmology/the-nine-worlds/asgard/

Idunn with her husband Bragi, god of poetry
According to some mythologists, Idun, was the fair goddess of immortal youth, love, fertility and the personification of spring.

She had no birth and was never to taste death, therefore, she was particularly warmly
welcomed by the gods when she made her appearance in Asgard (home of the gods). [Note 1]

In Norse mythology, the gods and goddesses represented a mixed race and were not immortal.

goldenapples

They had to regularly eat marvelous golden apples from Idun’s garden to ward off disabilities and old age and diseases, in order to remain beautiful, young through countless ages and vigorous.

Idun, the immortal one, was the keeper of wonderful golden apples of youth, which she
maintained in her magic casket [or basket]. [Note 2]

No matter how many she drew out from the casket, the same number always remained in the casket.
The Norns kept watch over the golden apples which hung on the branches of the tree of life, experience, and knowledge. They allowed none but Idun to pick the fruits, but she always had to be very cautious when she shared the apples with the gods, because dwarfs and giants were eager to obtain possession of the powerful fruit.

Note 2

“Hrafnagaldr Odins’ also charges Idunna with nourishing the World Tree, Yggdrasil, through Ragnarok, indicating at one point, that She conceals Herself within it’s trunk. Scholar Rudolf Simek notes that if Idunna were honored in Pagan times, it would have been as a Goddess of fertility, because of the apples.(6) I would extend that and see Her instead, and partially by extension, as a Goddess of health and transformative power. It’s clear from the tale of Her kidnapping that Her power over these things was coveted by the Jotnar, who live in a dangerous, hostile world. Amongst the Ice etins that world is also often bleak and barren.

As I noted in my book “Exploring the Northern Tradition,” it is interesting to note that Thiazi coveted not the apples, but Idunna Herself. Ostensibly the apples were useless unless given directly from Her hands, which would imply that their regenerating power lay within this Goddess Herself. (7)

In my personal devotions I’ve always sensed a deep connection between Idunna
and Hela: one plants the seed and sees it to fruition, the other harvests it when the time is
right. There is a strong connection to natural cycles there.

S. McGrath in her book “Asyniur” comments that Idunna carries Her precious apples in a casket made of ash wood.(8) Ash is so often associated by Odin and by extension the valkyries that to my mind at least, this speaks to some mystery learned from Her mother. Ash is a warrior’s tree associated with breaking inertia and moving through obstacles. Of course it’s worth noting that tree lore was very important to the neighboring Celts too, who associated apple with journeying to the other-worlds and ash to the working of fate. My mom used to honor Idunna in part as a Goddess of gardening (she was an avid and skilled organic gardener). Last year Ironwood Kindred raised a God-pole in honor of Idunna, placing it in an apple orchard.

Idunna, fruitful Goddess of the harvest
Be Thou hailed.
Goddess of the apples of youthfulness,
Be Thou honored.
Idunna, Goddess of transformations, journeys and coming home,
Be Thou praised.
For Your blessings
For Your mercy,
For Your firm counsel
And gentle, healing touch,
And always for Yourself alone,
Be Thou adored.
Hail, Idunna.
