Tracing the Fora

Tracing the Fora

The Fora is an equi-distant solar cross whose vertical and horizontal rays extend beyond the circle. It is the main symbol of our Faith.

In our Faith, the word Fora is not the Latin plural for forum, but rather is a word from our heritage meaning foundation, fundamental and fundamental form or pattern. It also indicates the fundamental or foundational Principle of the Cosmos.


Tracing the Fora:

3 finger position

Personally, I use the right hand in a three finger position symbolising the Holy triunity/trinity.

Making the Fora blessing

Tracing the Fora (Solar Cross) upon yourself:
1. on the diagram
Touch forehead and extend the ray down to your solar plexus, (just below the sternum in the hollow, where your ribs attach in the front) and say: In the Name of the Mother.
Symbolising Dea’s Light and Graces flowing down to whichever realm we are manifest in.

2. on the diagram
Touch right shoulder and extend the ray to the left shoulder and say: and of the Daughter.
Symbolising Dea’s Love and Divine Guidance with us constantly in whichever realm we are manifest in.

3. on the diagram
Start at the top and draw a clock-wise circle in the air slightly over chest and say: and of the Great Mother.
Symbolising Dea’s Life and Eternal Spirit as the Source of All in whichever realm we are manifest in.

I imagine a glowing Golden Solar Cross.
