March 2nd: Veiled Full Moon. (For the Celestial Mother).
We use the preface of the Great Mother for the Rite of Sacrifice and for the Liturgy which is, O Dea Matrona, Dark Moon of Origin, shelter us beneath Your Veil of Mystery.
The candles on the altar (which should be object blessed) and the veil/hat that we wear during formal prayer and ritual should be either black or indigo . (Keep in mind, the liturgical colors are the colors of the robes of the Janae. These are colors that are symbolic of Who They Are in Their Spiritual Essence.) The Moura altar cloth is the elemental seasonal color of violet. This can be a doily, hankey/handkerchief, table cloth. (Which should be object blessed). There are no flowers on the altar
The Rite of Sacrifice (RoS) may be served by anyone Déanic / Filianic.
It would be nice if the RoS is served by the members of the J.O.P. Sisterhood at least on the Full Moons.
On the Trinity days (Foradi/Sunnadi/Lunadi) if they so desire, although this is not mandatory.
Exceptions may be made for the members of the Iremian Order who have difficulty with these types of rituals. In that case, they may compose their own prayers, hymns or a more informal method of worship.
March 16th: Dark Moon. (For the Great Mother).
March 20th: (4 days after the Dark Moon): Crescent Moon. (For the Holy Daughter).
