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:

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],

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

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.

Oxford English Dictionary “liminal,” the adjectival form, which it lists as a rare usage: “Of or pertaining to the threshold or initial stage of a process.” Both liminal and liminality are derived from the Latin “limen,” which means “threshold”—that is, the bottom part of a doorway that must be crossed when entering a building.]

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 Trinity and the Apple Tree/Part 2: The Trunk of Light

Reblogged from https://deanic.com

Part 1 The Trinity and the Apple Tree/Part 1, the Canopy of Love

The Trinity and the Apple Tree/Part 2: The Trunk of Light

O, Madria Sofia, Jana of Intelligence, Intuition and Wisdom, be with us. May the Pure Stream of your Virtues flow within me, in this world and in all the worlds to come.

tree-trunk-of-light

12) Like to the bole (trunk) is that Spirit Herself, from Whom all creation flows. (Title 3, Chapter 5 THE SERMON OF THE APPLE SEED).

As the canopy of the tree represents the Holy Daughter, so the Trunk represents the Divine Mother, the Matrix of all Creation. And, just as the trunk is the strong core, bringing life to and supporting the swaying and dancing branches of the tree, so, too, is the Holy Mother the life-giving Core of the All. All creation flows out from Her and dances to Her Divine Melody.

This is further exemplified by those who teach about life between lives and near death experiences and that is that the Divine Mother is understood to be the Divine Core of Creation. She is truly the Matrix of All Being and as the trunk of the tree swirls with life-sustaining energy, it is within Her that all energies flow.

tree_of_light_by_r3novatio

18) Light is pure force, or energy or delight. It is the joy of the Goddess and Her breath and Spirit. 19) Light is the outpouring of Life into existence….

20) Though an existing thing appear ever so solid, yet its body is made of light. All material things are but consolidated force; and the vibration of force is their whole being. (Title 2, Chapter 1 THE CRYSTAL TABLET)

Though the trunk looks solid and dense, all matter is merely consolidated light and all Light is energy as is borne out by quantum physics.

The solidity of the trunk, like the solidity of all matter, is an illusion. It is truly made up of light and the Holy Celestial Mother is Supernal Light.

The tree trunk is an incredible design. Outer tree bark protects the whole from potentially harsh cruelties of the world – while on the inside there is an intricate system of circulation and energetic flow. Trees are renewed from the inside out. This is sacred wisdom passed on from tree to humankind: Our prime source for renewal must first be activated from within. (1)

~~~

Sophia Ruth says:
I have been so inspired by ArchMadria Pamela, that I wish to add my own thoughts at this point.

To continue the quote:

Furthermore, there is a section of tree anatomy called the Heartwood. It’s the centermost pillar of stabilization for the trunk of a tree. This center core, the Heartwood, supports the entire tree system. Ironically this heart is ‘dead,’ meaning there is utter stillness in biological reproduction within this area. (1)

This immediately caused me to think, of course the Heartwood is not biological, not matter, it is All Spirit of the Holy Celestial Mother.

12. For the Spirit is one, and I am the Spirit. 13. And you are the spirit also, in the innermost temple of your heart. (Title 3, Chapter 11 THE TEMPLE OF THE HEART)

As previously quoted:
Trees are renewed from the inside out. This is sacred wisdom passed on from tree to humankind: Our prime source for renewal must first be activated from within. (1)

23. Change that within you and the world without will change. But seek to change the world, and all of essence will remain the same. (Title 3, Chapter 4 THE SECRET OF THE WORLD)

Back to the original post:

our-lady-with-children-of-the-world-under-her-mantle-of-protection

Our Lady with children of the world under Her mantle of protection

 

When I was a child in Catholic School, we would look up at the blue sky and pray that Our Lady would keep Her Mantle of Protection over us. As a young mother, I would ask Our Lady to spread Her Mantle of Protection over my home and my family.

The protective armor of the outer bark of the tree protects the life within, so, too, have I always believed in the power of Our Lady’s blue mantle to protect my home and loved ones. The power of Our Lady’s mantle has long been a tradition within Catholicism just as it is a tradition within the Deanic Faith.

  1.  You who are weary with the world, you who are lonely, you who have suffered hardship, and you who have suffered hurt: come, gather about Me and be enfolded in My mantle. 4) Come, seek protection in My mantle, for I have turned no creature from Me. Be sheltered in the folds of My garment. (Title 3, Chapter 3 THE MANTLE)

Like the strong core of the tree that is made of light, the Holy Mother, Supernal Light, is the strong Core of all manifest Life. Like the bark which covers and protects the inner tree, Her Hallowed Mantle, Her Mighty Mantle, enfolds us all within Her loving, protective Force. With out the trunk, the tree could not stand. Without the Heavenly Core, Creation would collapse in and of itself.

Praise be to the Celestial Mother, She Who is the Supernal Light and the Core of All Being.

~

Silver Star of the Waters, Who has fashioned all the cosmos into being, beyond all knowing is the Splendor of Your Light. Enfold our spirits, beneath your Hallowed Mantle and may the Pure Stream of Your Grace flow with me, in this world and in all the worlds to come.

Eternal is the Light of the Mother.

Eternal is the Love of the Daughter.

Eternal is the Life of the Great Mother.

Blessed is She.

Feast of Divine Life / Harvest Hestia

Feast of Divine Life / Harvest Hestia

The Rite of Sacrifice / Offering

This is the first time that I have performed (and adapted) The Janite Deanic Rite of Sacrifice / Offering.

We celebrate the Holy Trinity.

The Great Mother as Ground of All Being.
As I understand Her:
Dea Matrona is ultimate reality. Dea is the first, and highest and only necessary “thing” [Intelligence/Spirit] that exists, and thus, had Dea Matrona not emanated / “breathed out” Celestial Mother Mari, Dea Matrona would be the only “being” [Intelligence/Spirit] that exists.

The Celestial Mother Mari is the Matrix. She gathers from Source or Absolute Deity, the Great Mother, the seeds containing the Essence of Life and She births [emanates] them into material manifestation. Therefore, the Holy Mother Mari is, for us: Dea, Apple of Wisdom.

Di Jana is the Apple of Wisdom.
The outer apple represents the material manifestation of Creation. The inner spiritual seeds containing the Essence of Life, taken together with the outer apple of material manifestation represent the two Threads of the Spiritual and the Material being woven together to create All Being, which is exactly what World Soul Di Jana, Apple of Wisdom, signifies.

apple-cut-across-equator

This Holy Rite may be offered as a solitary ritual or with family and friends on the phases of the moon or a Festival/Feast Day. It may be used for home or outdoor worship. It is a shortened form of the Great Liturgy of Dea and includes a Rite of Offering rather than a Communion Rite.

~

Force is understood as the combined Divine Power, Strength, Will and Energies of Dea.

~

The Rite is served on the Dark Moon in honor of the Great Mother. It is served on the Crescent Moon in honor of the Holy Daughter. It is celebrated on the Full Moon in honor of the Celestial Mother.

~

The Sacred Name of Power, IHV by saying the He with the outbreath, it is breathed rather than pronounced. It may also be pronounced Yot ‘E Voh.

~

Bowing: Fold hands in prayer, resting tips of fingers on chin and bow.

Soteria is pronounced So’-te-reea

~
Needed items:
Table or altar placed in the East. The spiritual head of the household, performing the Rite, faces East unless otherwise indicated. [I have].
Altar candles [I have].
Incense [No].
Five Element candles placed either along the back of the altar or in their cardinal directions on the altar. [No].
Holy water [I prepared earlier].
Holy oil [No].
Chalice and plate with white wine or white grape juice (unfermented wine) and fresh bread/rolls. (If there are to be a large number of people, more than one chalice may be filled with wine. All chalices of white wine and white grape juice should be properly blessed during the Rite.) [I prepared earlier, white grape juice and a slice of bread, ritual chalace and plate, blessed].
Libation bowl. [No, an ordinary bowl blessed].
Fresh flowers, if available. [No].
An inspired reading, hymns, the scriptures, Sophian or Persephone related hymns, or seasonal or moon poetry to be chosen in advance. [I have].
Females should be veiled or wearing a scarf or hat, males may wear a religious cap if they feel called to do so; all should dress appropriately. [I have].

and to solemnly devote ourselves
to Your service.
Mistress of the Silver-Helmed wave,
come among us.

C/M: Let us confess together our belief in that which alone is true.

Creed:

All:
I believe that I am created from before the dawn of time
by the Eternal One, Madria Dea;
I believe that She is One and there are none beside Her,
and I believe that She is also Three.

~

I believe in the Mother, She Who is Pure Light;
the Creator of the Earth and of the Heavens,
and of all the infinite Cosmos.

~

And I believe in Her Holy Daughter, born of the Holy Mother;
She Who rules all the energies of Creation,
Whose Nature is Perfect Love.

~

And I believe that there is She, Who stands beyond these Two,
Whose Name has not been spoken on this Earth;
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;

~

I believe in the Seven Janati, the Seven Great Powers of Dea. I believe that
they are the Living Streams of Virtue who flow from the Mother and
that together, these Living Streams form the River of Life.

~

I believe that I was made a perfect creature,
and I believe that at the dawn of time my soul did turn from
the Perfection of existence,
that I may know of the other things, for many things I did not know;
And thus gathered I infirmity of my sovereign will;

~

I believe that through this fault I needs must suffer
the limitation of imperfect being, to learn and know the other things,
in the increase of my knowledge;
for I know within Her Divine Will, the darkness must be known
to truly know the Light
and the Dark beyond the light.

~

And I believe, that all Her Will might Be,
that the Daughter of Eternity
gave Herself to be cast through the realms into Moura. (1)

~

I believe that She rose triumphant
And reigns as Queen of Heaven.
I believe that guided by the Seven Living Streams
and through the Triumphant life of the Daughter,
I may return to Eternal Communion
with the Eternal One, Madria Dea,
In the Completion of the Wholeness of Her Will.

Blessed is She.

C/M: Great Dove of the Waters that has brought forth the world from the Matrix of Your Being.

C: Dove of the Sacrifice that are crushed beneath the heel of Moura (1) [replaced: death] that You may come as our Soteria [replaced Savior]

ALL: We thank You,

We bless You,

We adore You.

C/M: Gentle Mother, that has given forth Your Daughter with tears into the hands of darkness,

All: Accept the tears of our love and our regret. [replaced: contrition]

Version (Second Edition, Third Update)

Title 2. The Crystal Tablet [52 verses]
Chapter 1 only
1: 52 verses.

The Crystal Tablet 12-29

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. 13. How shall the soul live in life? 14. Let her realize the truth of her self and the truth of the Absolute. Let her know that her life is beyond even her existence, that the absolute life, the life of Thea, is beyond all existence. 15. Let her not be held from herself or her Thea by anything that exists, for all the things that are have come from nothing and to nothing shall return. But the divine life, and her life within it, was ever and shall ever be, though time itself shall only last a space. 16. Let her 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.
18. Light is pure force or delight. It is the joy of Thea, and Her breath and spirit. 19. Light is the outpouring of life into existence. All things that exist come from life; they are made and sustained by light.
20. Though an existing thing appears never so solid, yet its body is made of light. All material things are but consolidated force; and the vibration of force is the whole of their being.
21. Yet material things are far from the source of light. They have become subject to consolidation and restriction. 22. Pure light knows no bounds, but is perfect joy, and breathes its own perfection.
23. How shall the soul approach to light? 24. Let her make her every act a resplendent creation, and let every outpouring of her strength be a well-made gift for her Lady. Let her not fall into dullness, but be ever creating herself anew in the delight of her strength. 25. Let her not seek for reward, but only for her own perfection; thus the action itself shall become perfect.
Let her turn from the transient and find delight in the eternal. 26. For every earthly action is the shadow of some higher form; and the soul must choose whether in her act she shall approach that form, or sink from it into deeper shadows and the morass of illusion. 27. She who rejects the light of the Spirit in this world shall, beyond death, be plunged into darkness and the confusion of bodiless echoes. 28. But every act that is performed in dedication to the Mother is an expression of the soul’s true self, and loosens the chains of her bondage. 29. If the soul lives in light, nothing shall be impossible to her, for her will shall become one with the will of our Lady

The Sacrifice:

C:

Silver Star of the Waters, Who has fashioned all the cosmos into being. Beyond all knowing is the splendor of Your Light. Enfold my spirit, beneath your hallowed mantle, and may the pure stream of Your Grace, flow through me, into this world and in all the worlds to come.

Madria Dea, we pray that You will Bless the gifts we bring to You, for we bring them not only in our own names, but for all who love You; may they be nourished and grow strong in Your true devotion.

Beloved Kyria, we bring these gifts for Your blessing in the name of Holy Ekklesia, who has gathered all of Your children into one Body, knowing no bounds of either time or space.

For we know that Ekklesia transcends this world, even as this sacred altar transcends the earthly stuff of which its parts are made. For we know that as we stand before this altar within Ekklesia, we stand at once before Your Celestial Altar, which is both in Heaven and in every place where Your children come together in Your Name.

C: Holds the sacrifice (bread) in the smoke of incense with both hands.

C: We know that there is but one Sacrifice made by all Your children in every place, eternally. Bless this gift, that we may take part in that one Sacrifice.

(All kneel on one knee. C bows her head.)

IOT ‘E VOH

The Sacrifice / Offering

C: Places Sacrifice back on plate. (May either be safely burned as an offering or placed outside on the ground.)

C: Mother of all that is, accept the gift Your children bring to You.

(All rise. C; lifts the Chalice in her left hand and traces the Fora over it with her right)

C: Let us offer libation to Dea.

(C then pours a portion of the wine from the chalice into the libation bowl. She then traces the Fora again over the bread. She dips her two fore fingertips into the wine and sprinkles a few drops onto the sacrifice. The action is repeated three times. She then traces the Fora, again.)

C: Madria Dea, as we drink of the one cup, may Your Divine Spirit be infused within our being.

(The Chalice is passed to all. All drink. If a Madrina (deaconess/server) is present, she serves them, afterwards drinking, herself. The celebrant drinks last.)

Contemplation:

Inspirational reading, poem, myth, etc.
(May be read by the C, a family member or friend. The celebrant may give food for contemplation, speak about the Mysteries of the season, spiritual truths, etc.)

C: Let us consider that the earthly things we see about us are but illusion and that could we see with clearer eyes, a more glorious vision would appear before us.

Let us feel the Spirit of Dea, as it grows within us and seek to catch a glimpse of that vision.

(C kneels. During Contemplation, certain meditations may be spoken, including the following):

C: May the blessing of the Mother be upon you and upon this world.

May the blessing of the Daughter be upon you and upon this world.

May the blessing of the Great Mother be upon you and upon this world.

Dark beyond the Light and Light beyond the Darkness.

C/M:

Beloved Dea, [replaced Kyria], we pray that you will bless us on our parting from Your Temple and infuse us with Your delight, so far as we are able to contain it.

Silver Light Of The Forests

All:
Silver Light of the darkling forests, send us forth in the protection of Your Spirit that no profane thing may enter into us.

Grant us to see all things with delight that are lovely and to glory and increase in force and energy.

Fill us with wonder in the sight of the seas and of the heavens and of every place wherein You are.

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.

C: (Makes the sign of the Fora and says)

In the Name of the Mother

And of the Daughter

And of the Great Mother.

Let us bless the Queen of Heaven.

Blessed is She.

Let us thank the Seven Janati of Power.

Thanks be to the Seven Janati.

Thus may it remain.

(1) Moura – may either translate as darkness or death. It indicates that, like Sophia, the Holy Daughter suffered a descent down through the realms. Some, in our Faith, believe the Daughter died, others do not. Devotees are free to believe according to their conscience.

The Royal Titles for the Trinity

The Royal Titles for the Trinity

Sunnadi/Sunday

14 Abalon/Sept. 18

(Sunnadi is, of course, the day of the Sun. The Sun symbolizes the Bright Light of the Celestial Mother. It is also the symbol of Madria Theia. Madria Theia represents the Holy Mother and rules over this day.)

O, Madria Theia, Janya of Illumination, Joy and Benevolence. Be with us. May the Pure Stream of your Virtues flow within me, into this world and in all the worlds to come.

As we know, the Divine Feminine Trinity preceded the Christian Trinity by aeons.

For Janite Deanists, (Day-an-ists) the Divine Feminine Trinity is Dea Madria/Mother God; Dea Filia/Daughter God and Dea Matrona/Great Mother God. Each, in our Tradition, has a royal title (1):

The Holy Daughter has three Royal/Priestly titles:

3421252_orig

The Holy Daughter is Princess of the Earth.

24) And the Genia (Janya) said: It is good that you bring your crown, for you are a great princess, but the Holy Child shall be Princess of all the World. (The Mythos of the Divine Maid, Chap. II verse 24.)

…1) To You I give the governance of all these things. 2) You shall command the movements of the waters and the wind shall be Your servant. 3) The seasons of the Earth shall You control and all the times and seasons in the lives of My creatures. 4) Every soul on Earth and in the Heavens shall be given into Your care and the highest stars of the firmament shall know You as their Sovereign….  6) And the Maid ruled over all the world... (The Mythos of the Divine Maid, Chap. II verses 1-6.)

This is reminiscent of both Persephone, who governs the Seasons and of Daughter Sophia, Who is the World Soul and governs Creation.

In Chapter II, the Genia/Janya continues to explain that the Holy Child, like the Goddess Sophia, is the Daughter of Wisdom. ( Lower Sophia is the Daughter of the Barbelo, Who is Higher Sophia, Wisdom, Herself.)

Sophia Come, eat of My Bread and Drink of the Wine I have mixed. These are the words of Wisdom/Sophia as found in Proverbs 9/5.

The Holy Daughter is Priestess of Heaven [mediating to the World]:

30) And the Genia/Janya said: It is good that you bring your crown, for you are a true and loving priestess and a servant of your people, but the Holy Child shall be Priestess of all the world and shall serve Her children even to the last and greatest service. (Mythos of the Divine Maid chapter 2 verse 30.)

16: And She stood at the great Altar and took up a wheaten loaf (for full text see Mythos of the Divine Maid, chapter Seven verses 16- 24.)

goddess-queen

The Holy Daughter is Queen of Heaven.

10) And 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) And the blue night was Her cloak and the stars of the sky, the crown about Her head and the moon lay at Her feet. And they cried again: Hail, Queen of Heaven. (Mythos of the Divine Maid chapter seven verses 10 and 11.)

(We have three versions of the Traditional main prayer to the Divine Feminine in the West, the Hail, Mary. The words are basically the same for each Person of the Trinity, which illustrates that Dea is One. The Hail, Anna version reflects the fact that the Holy Daughter is both Daughter of the Mother and Mother to us all.)

Hail, Anna, [Jana] Fount of Grace, Glory be to Thee. Blessed art Thou, O, Queen of Heaven and Blessed is Thy Beloved Mother. Holy Dea, Daughter God, bless us, Thy children, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen. [‘so be it’]

1441225453428

The Celestial Mother is the Mistress of all Things and from Her flow the Seven Rivers of Life (the Janati and their Powers/Virtues).

1) Before and beyond all things is the Mistress of All things, and when nothing was, She was. (The Creation, Chapter 1 verse 1.)

e3076f2aa4083c4b7ea543e117b74855

In Janite Tradition, the Celestial Mother is the High Queen.

Hail, Mari, Fount of Grace, Glory be to Thee. Blessed art Thou, O, High Queen of Heaven and blessed is Thy beloved Daughter. Holy Dea, Mother God, bless us, Thy children, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen. [‘so be it’]

CroneGoddess

In Janite Tradition, the Great Mother (equal to the Barbelo) is the Empress.

Hail, Mysteria, Fount of Grace, Glory be to Thee. Blessed art Thou, O, Empress of Heaven and blessed are the Beloved Mother and Daughter. Holy Dea, Great Mother God, bless us, Thy children, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen. [‘so be it’]

~

And so, the Holy Daughter is the Queen of Heaven; the Celestial Mother is the High Queen of Heaven and the Great Mother is the Empress of Heaven. Together, they are One. Blessed is She.



Eternal is the Light of the Mother.

Eternal is the Love of the Daughter.

Eternal is the Life of the Great Mother.

Glorious is the Eternity of Dea.

~

May Our Lady bless you,

Blessed is She.

Canticle of the Supernal Sun (the Celestial Mother)

Canticle of the Supernal Sun (the Celestial Mother)

Sun rising over a sea

There is no thing fairer on the Earth than She,
Nor any thing upon the Heaven, fairer.
Before Her splendour, does the noon-day Sun burn as the dying embers of a fire.
Madria Dea, does not Thy Spirit breathe in all created things?
Is not all darkness scattered by Thy Fire?
And but for Thee, would not all the cosmos decompose? Would not the black abyss of chaos swallow all?
And as Thine universal music reins the furthest spheres, so does it tune the beating of my heart. For as the running doe longs for the cooling streams, so is my soul athirst for Thy dear Grace; and as long as hunger brings the limbs to weakness, trembles my souls for confluence with Thee.
Have pity on my soul and end its trembling. Fill it with the good nourishment of Thy love. For there is no thing other than will cool its fever and there is no way other it shall find content.
O, let my soul be chastened by its suffering. O, let it care no longer for its pride; O, let it cry to Thee in childlike trustfulness; let it be humbled in Thy gentle Light.
Of mine own self, I can accomplish nothing;
only so far as Thou art acting through me.
How dull my soul is, like the ashes of a fire;
but, pierced through with Thine eternal rays,
is it not radiant as the noon-day sun?
There is no thing fairer on the Earth than Thee,
nor any thing upon the Heaven fairer.

Sacred Month of Ceres August 8th – September 4th

Sacred Month of Ceres August 8th – September 4th

This is a Clan Jana named month.

Goddess of Corn and grains. The word cereal stems from Ceres.

The Madrian1&2 name was Hesperis meaning evening star because the evenings lengthen.
The month renamed by Clan Jana as Sunna was originally named Kerea from the root word Ker, which means Horn as in Horn of Plenty or Cornucopia.

I see this month as a celebration and thanks giving to
“The Bright Mother and Her gifts to the world. We find in the world a memory of that golden time when the Bright Mother was near to the world and joy held sway over all.

Ceres

In ancient Roman religion, Ceres Latin: Cerēs was a goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships.[3]
The Romans saw her as the counterpart of the Greek goddess Demeter.

Ceres was a kind and benevolent goddess to the Romans and they had a common expression, “fit for Ceres,” which meant splendid.
[http://www.ceresva.org/Goddess/Ceres.htm]

Ceres was credited with the discovery of spelt wheat (Latin far), the yoking of oxen and ploughing, the sowing, protection and nourishing of the young seed, and the gift of agriculture to humankind; before this, it was said, man had subsisted on acorns, and wandered without settlement or laws. She had the power to fertilise, multiply and fructify plant and animal seed, and her laws and rites protected all activities of the agricultural cycle.

Ceres Enthroned

Etymology

Ceres’ name derives from the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European root *ḱerh₃-, meaning “to satiate, to feed”,[5] which is also the root for Latin crescere “to grow” and through it, the English words create and increase. Roman etymologists thought ceres derived from the Latin verb gerere, “to bear, bring forth, produce”
Throughout the Roman era, Ceres’ name was synonymous with grain and, by extension, with bread.

My Lady’s Voice

Madonna Of Roses by Maria Fribus (adapted with Fora)

My Lady’s Voice

O, Where shall I hear my Lady’s voice?

Where shall I feel my Lady’s touch?

Where smell the fragrant Holy Rose and

be warmed by the Holy Fire?

O, where shall I see Her, where can I find Her,

O, where can my Lady be?

 

Be calm, gentle soul, for you never are lost,

For you dwell all the while with Her.

Tis your mind that has strayed and the thoughts

Of your mind that obscure Her now from you.

Then, cleanse your mind of the darkness thoughts,

And be turned again, to Her

 

And go inside you, seek within you, for tis there

That your Lady abides.

For though She is beyond you, She is also within you,

And your being is wholly in Her.

And within shall you feel Her and see Her and hear Her,

And within know Her nectar and fragrance divine.

 

And within is the warmth of She Who is Love and the

Warmth of Her Love is the Warmth that surrounds

You, for the whole of your being is in Love.

 

This is from one of the Founders of our Scriptures and Faith.

The Bodily Death of my Birth Mother Rosa 17 / June 29th 2016

The Bodily Death of my Birth Mother Rosa 17 / June 29th 2016

I have been grieving for 5 years as her brain died and another characteristic of Mom’s personality diminished.

Her damaged brain was sending commands not to take in drinks or food, despite the carers and loving daily care of my Dad in patiently cajoling her.

Her earthly body and heart stopped at 11.30am. Her soul ascended.

She had not been in much pain, recognised my Dad and I, was happy, and was speaking in full sentences the day before.

My belief in Dea, crossing the veil, a Heavenly Realm and many lifetimes is such a comfort.

grey sky

I had been describing the sky scape to her as every shade of grey and black and saying that it would be a superb watercolour painting. My Dad said to her “Oh Sweetheart, I  want to give you the bright light of the sun.”

When we finally arrived home in the afternoon, just a matter of a few miles away, the sky was blue with a warm bright sun. I knew that this was a sign from the Supernal Sun, Madria Dea that my mother was in Heaven.

 My devotional plans for Feast of Rose of Heaven, Rosa Caeli have been overtaken.
 I am surrounded by pictorial representations of roses in my parent’s home.
 All my Mother’s interiors.
 Yesterday on a walk for Father’s day the hedges blooming with pale pink briar roses.
 https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/be/11/60/be1160aad934d4e6f0502ad8aec236aa.jpg
 At sunrise and noon, blue skies and radiant sunshine. Reminding me of the fiery heart of Madria Dea, of Her unconditional Love.
 I was going to read Holy Scripture and psalms of praise on the train journey.
 I have been sat watching my Mother’s body fail and thinking of her spirit reunited with Madria Dea’s Spirit.
 Imagining my Mother’s rose heart joining Heaven’s rose garden.
 Very simple.
 I was due to travel back to my home and set up my home altar, perform a moon rite.
 Celebrating the bright supernal solar Mother awaiting us.
 On an extra special Summer Solstice with the Rose Moon symbolising our Heavenly Mother.
 (The first full moon on a Summer Solstice since 1967).
 Praise be to Dea for the experience of much deeper spiritual significance for me.

This season is dedicated to the Mother as Centre and Essence, and the blazing sun of creation. The solar fire within the world is blazing up to consume the separation of matter and raise us across the abyss of separation to be one within our hearts with the Heart of the Mother. A single rose stands before altar images to recall our minds to the single goal. Bonfires are also a custom of the season.

“All the complexities of the world are but the turnings of a labyrinth, and at the centre is the fiery rose-heart of our Mother, burning with perfect love.”

from Madrian Traditions

~~~

Roses come in many colors. Each color provides a rose with a hidden symbolic meaning. The following ideals are a joyous, bountiful, bouquet of those secret meanings. All of these private thoughts remind us of Our Mother God (Dea).

Many of these silent messages refer to particular virtues of Lady Vicka:
adoration, admiration, affection, appreciation, beauty, calm, caring, commitment, courage, delight, elegance, enchantment, energy, enthusiasm, fascination, femininity, forgiveness, friendship, gentility, gentleness, gladness, grace, grandeur, gratitude, happiness, harmony, heavenly, honesty, honor, humility, innocence, joyfulness, kindness, life, love, loyalty, majesty, modesty, mystery, passion, perfection, protection, purity, remembrance, refinement, renewal, respect, reverence, romance, royalty, secrecy, silence, sincerity, spirituality, splendor, steadfastness, sweetness, sympathy, thankfulness, tranquility, truth, unity, warmth, welcome, wonder, youthfulness.

In commemoration of this happy day, it is recommended that a devotee of Dea present a rose (or roses) to a dear one, in token of the personal bond of affection between the one and the other.
