Dea as the Rose of Joy, the Glad Welcome:
Radiating from the center Heart-Hearth of Home
The Flowering and Fruitful Rose Garden of Delight
(ArchMatrona Georgia Cobb of the Lady of Light Chantry)
The Rose of Joy. The Celestial Mother Mari as the Assumption of our souls. She is the Fiery Rose of Heaven. Rosa Caeli means “of Heaven” in Latin.
(ArchMadria Pamela Lanides of Clan Jana)
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).
