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.

To Trace the Fora upon yourself:

Blessing Forefinger

Use the forefinger of the right hand. [1]

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 the Celestial Mother as being Transcendent.

2. on the diagram
Touch right shoulder and extend the ray to the left shoulder and say: and of the Daughter.
Symbolising the immanence of the Holy Daughter’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.
This symbolizes the Great Mother as the Still Centre of All Being.

Using the forefinger of the right hand (or a wooden wand/branch) trace the vertical ray down and say: In the Name of the Mother.
Then the horizontal ray right to left and say: and of the Daughter.
Finally, draw a clockwise circle over the centre point and say: and of the Great Mother. Then say, Blessed is She.

Triunity/Trinity Blessing

Using Holy Water To Bless – Holy Daughter

Sprinkle (asperge) the candle or object with holy water three times with the forefinger of the right hand (or a wooden wand or short length of tree branch may be used).
Then, trace the Fora with the damp forefinger of the right hand (or a wooden wand/branch) over the object three times while saying once: May the Holy Daughter, Zoe Sophia, [2] bless this (name object) in the Name of the Mother and of the Daughter and of the Great Mother. Blessed is She.

Using Incense/Unscented Candle To Bless – Celestial Mother

Take the incense, whether cone or resin (if you are allergic either skip this stage or burn an unscented candle and imagine the scent)
use it to trace the Fora over the item and then circle the incense three times clockwise beneath the item, enfolding the object in the smoke while saying once: May the Celestial Mother, Mari Sophia, [2] consecrate this (name object) in the Name of the Mother and of the Daughter and of the Great Mother. Blessed is She.

Using Holy Oil To Bless – Great Mother

Finally, dip the forefinger of the right hand in holy oil and trace the Fora three times on the object while saying once: May the Great Mother, Mysteria Sige,[2] consecrate this (name object) in the Name of the Mother and of the Daughter and of the Great Mother. Blessed is She.

Notes

[1] “The ancient Greeks were particularly superstitious of the left hand and generally anything that on the left side. This spread throughout the Roman empire, as the Romans borrowed heavily from the Greeks for their culture.”

In Palmistry the hand is mapped out with each finger assigned a particular planet.
The index finger – Jupiter, (which according to Janae thealogy is connected to O, Agia Thema, who governs Her Virtues of Justice Order and Harmony.*)

The Celestial Mother is Mari Sophia [pronounced as in Mars: MAHR-ee] which is one of the oldest pan-cultural names of God the Mother that means Mother Sea of Wisdom. Or from my time in a corrupted Madrian household when I asked I was told: Ma = Mother & ri = High. In Welsh Rhi means Kingly or Queenly, therefore Mari would mean Mother Queen.
