14 Samhain/Nov. 13
Day of Lady Mati Sage, Messenger of Intelligence, Wisdom and Creativity.
Yesterday was the night of the Full Spirit Moon. The full moon energies will continue tonight and tomorrow night so the RoV may be celebrated, if desired. The Rite may be found here.
ArchMatrona Ghrian, of the Lady of Light Chantry, has been developing some lovely customs in honor of the Seven Janati or the Star Guardians as they are known in the Lucienne Tradition.
Rather than having individual feast days for the Janati/Guardians, she will be celebrating them on one great feast day, 28 Astrea/Dec. 25, which is also the feast of the Star Fairy in Deanic Tradition. (The original customs of the Star Fairy are to be found in British tradition.)
These new Janati/Guardian customs have been designed to compliment rather than replace the practice of the Sunwheel, which ArchMatrona Ghrian also created. For example, for the Feast day, she proposes: “Custom 1: Display Seven Angel Figurines, Robed in the Seven Light Spectrum Colors (or Seven Colored Stars, made from Paper or Cloth), in a “Seven-Pointed-Star” configuration, a circle, or a half circle, around a Divine Lady Figurine, Robed in White &/or 2) Display a Crystal Prism in a window, which catches the rays of the Sun, and forms a Rainbow of Light on a White Surface.” (1)
She recommends the following illustration for placement of the figurines, although, as she has stated, ” the Lucienne planetary colors are almost the same as the illustration, with the exception of Jupiter being Blue [vs Violet], and the Moon being Violet [vs Blue]”.
Serene Mother Ghrian also recommends these delightful angel ornaments:
And for children, ArchMatrona Ghrian has found this delightful little ebook:
We thank Serene Mother Ghrian for all these wonderful ideas and for continuing to create Deanic Traditions that will surely last for generations.
Blessings of Dea,
