Full Dove Moon

11  Columbina/March 31

Foradi/Sat.

O, Madria Rhea, Jana of Steadfastness, Temperance and Self-Restraint, be with us.

Today is the Full Dove Moon. The Rite of Sacrifice may be served by all.

The Full Moon is also a good time to lay out holy objects to be charged under it’s light, especially objects that are about to be blessed.

The Preface is that of the Celestial Mother and that of the Holy Daughter. These are included in this page: https://deanic.com/the-rite-of-sacrifice/

The scripture reading for tonight is the Exaltia prayer. During the Contemplation section a Spring ritual may be performed, with suitable hymns, meditation, sacred dance, poetry, etc. if desired.

Sophia is known as the Daughter incarnate.

The Exaltia

Our Lady is exalted among the daughters of Heaven.

Radiant Princess, Star of the Sea, robed in Celestial Light. She abases the cruel and the proud and hearkens to the plea of the lowly. The rich who deny Her Godhead find not contentment, but blessed is the humblest of Her servants.

She delivers the captive into Her care and takes the hand of the fallen.

May the whole world praise Thee,  beloved Princess. May Thy glory be told of in all the Earth. Let them exalt Thy dominion and Thy valiant courage and glorify Thy holy Name.

Have mercy on Thy servant who gives Thee blessing and take her hand in need and suffering. In illness and distress give her the gift of life.

May she go forever in joy and delight to magnify Thy Holy  Name before all the peoples of the world.

Feast of The Dead Reflection

Oct 29/Ourania 27

The month of Ourania is slowly coming to an end and in the next few days Shimovane will be here. Back in my Goddess Pagan days, Samhain was a day rather than a whole month. Samhain was the one day when the veil between our world and the spirit world were the thinnest. This was an important time for magic spells to be worked as a witch.

Now, that I am a Deanist I find that Shimovane holds a similar yet different meaning. We do not have a set belief for what happens to the soul upon death. Madrians did have a concept of Avala, or a paradise with the Daughter. From my understanding, Avala is a temporary abode that the soul lives. Deanists typically hold that from Avala the soul can either reincarnate on earth or continue its journey to the mother. This concept is very similar to that of samsara in Buddhism or Hinduism.

During this time I found it very helpful to pray that the souls that have passed make it safely to the Daughter’s abode in Avala. I pray that the souls in Avala have made it to reuniting with Dea above.

I also like to make little donuts for my altar to represent the turning of the wheel of time (plus I like donuts). I change the flavor for each day of Shimovane. I believe apples and pumpkin flavors are perfect for this time of year!

This time of year is a time to reflect on Dea, the Mother’s mercy. That is what I like to think of it as. As Samhain comes and the three day festival of Shimovane, keep the Mother close and remember she loves you dearly.

In the eternal Love of Dea and the Light of her Heart,

Sorella Ayako Hibayashi
