The Royal Titles for the Trinity

Sunnadi/Sunday

14 Abalon/Sept. 18

(Sunnadi is, of course, the day of the Sun. The Sun symbolizes the Bright Light of the Celestial Mother. It is also the symbol of Madria Theia. Madria Theia represents the Holy Mother and rules over this day.)

As we know, the Divine Feminine Trinity preceded the Christian Trinity by aeons.

For Janite Deanists, (Day-an-ists) the Divine Feminine Trinity is Dea Madria/Mother God; Dea Filia/Daughter God and Dea Matrona/Great Mother God. Each, in our Tradition, has a royal title (1):

The Holy Daughter has three Royal/Priestly titles:

3421252_orig

The Holy Daughter is Princess of the Earth. 

24) And the Genia (Jana) said: It is good that you bring your crown, for you are a great princess, but the Holy Child shall be Princess of all the World. (The Mythos of the Divine Maid, Chap. II verse 24.)

…1) To You I give the governance of all these things. 2) You shall command the movements of the waters and the wind shall be Your servant. 3) The seasons of the Earth shall You control and all the times and seasons in the lives of My creatures. 4) Every soul on Earth and in the Heavens shall be given into Your care and the highest stars of the firmament shall know You as their Sovereign….  6) And the Maid ruled over all the world... The Mythos of the Divine Maid, Chap. II verses 1-6.

This is reminiscent of both Persephone, who governs the Seasons and of Daughter Sophia, Who is the World Soul and governs Creation.

In Chapter II, the Genia/Jana continues to explain that the Holy Child, like the Goddess Sophia, is the Daughter of Wisdom. ( Lower Sophia is the Daughter of the Barbelo, Who is Higher Sophia, Wisdom, Herself.)

Sophia Come, eat of My Bread and Drink of the Wine I have mixed. These are the words of Wisdom/Sophia as found in Proverbs 9/5.

The Holy Daughter is Priestess of Heaven: 

30) And the Genia/Jana said: It is good that you bring your crown, for you are a true and loving priestess and a servant of your people, but the Holy Child shall be Priestess of all the world and shall serve Her children even to the last and greatest service. Mythos of the Divine Maid chapter 2 verse 30.

16: And She stood at the great Altar and took up a wheaten loaf (for full text see Mythos of the Divine Maid, chapter Seven verses 16- 24.

goddess-queen

The Holy Daughter is Queen of Heaven.

10) And the children of Heaven greeted Her, crying: Hail, Princess of the World; Hail, Queen of Heaven. And they placed a crown of stars about Her head. 11) And the blue night was Her cloak and the stars of the sky, the crown about Her head and the moon lay at Her feet. And they cried again: Hail, Queen of Heaven. Mythos of the Divine Maid chapter seven verses 10 and 11.

(We have three versions of the Traditional main prayer to the Divine Feminine in the West, the Hail, Mary. The words are basically the same for each Person of the Trinity, which illustrates that Dea is One. The Hail, Anna version reflects the fact that the Holy Daughter is both Daughter of the Mother and Mother to us all.)

Hail, Anna, Fount of Grace, Glory be to Thee. Blessed art Thou, O, Queen of Heaven and Blessed is Thy Beloved Mother. Holy Dea, Daughter God, bless us, Thy children, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

The Celestial Mother is the Mistress of all Things and from Her flow the Seven Rivers of Life (the Janati and their Powers/Virtues). 

1) Before and beyond all things is the Mistress of All things, and when nothing was, She was. (The Creation, Chapter 1 verse 1.)

e3076f2aa4083c4b7ea543e117b74855

In Janite Tradition, the Celestial Mother is the Queen of Queens.

The Divine Mother is The Regent whose title is in-between Empress and Queen.   The Divine Mother is called Mistress of All Things.  Therefore, the Divine Mother is Queen of all Queens, also known as, High Queen. (1)

Hail, Mari, Fount of Grace, Glory be to Thee. Blessed art Thou, O, Queen of all Queens and blessed is Thy beloved Daughter. Holy Dea, Mother God, bless us, Thy children, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen. 

CroneGoddess

In Janite Tradition, the Great Mother (equal to the Barbelo) is the Empress of the Cosmos. 

Hail, Mysteria, Fount of Grace, Glory be to Thee. Blessed art Thou, O, Empress of the Cosmos and blessed are the Beloved Mother and Daughter. Holy Dea, Great Mother God, bless us, Thy children, now and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

~

And so, the Holy Daughter is the Queen of Heaven; the Celestial Mother is the Queen of all Queens and the Great Mother is the Empress of the Cosmos. Together, they are One. Blessed is She.



Eternal is the Light of the Mother.

Eternal is the Love of the Daughter.

Eternal is the Life of the Great Mother.

Glorious is the Eternity of Dea.

May Our Lady bless you,

Blessed is She.

The Sacred Season of Fall

As we faced South and bid farewell to the Noontide of Summer, during which we honored the Celestial Mother as the Rose of Joy, we expressed gratefulness for all its blessings and benefits. Now, as the Wheel spins yet again, we turn to the West and enter the time when we honor the Twilight of Autumn; a time when we revere the Holy Mother as the Apple of Wisdom.

Ruled over by Madria Thema, whose Feast Day is 1 Abalon/Sept. 5, Fall is the time of year when the last of the harvest is gathered and we prepare our hestias (homes consecrated to Dea) and our souls for the deep darkness of winter.

Like Spring, Fall is a time between times; a time of transition from one state of being to another. Where Spring marks new beginnings, Fall marks a time of endings; a time when those aspects of our lives which no longer serve us are cast off in order to plant new seeds of Wisdom and Grace within our souls. These seeds will germinate in our inner gardens through the Winter in order to better serve us at the Aurora (Dawn) of Spring.

It is a time to examine our lives and see where we are headed. We need to ask ourselves if our current Path, our goals and our life events are the ones which are true to our souls, to our higher selves. It is often said that where we are in our lives as we approach death is where we will begin our new lives in our next incarnation. 

I sometimes ponder what kind of person I would like to be in my next life and then begin to work on those goals. I would like to be kinder and more harmonious. I would like to attain an inner serenity that I have not had in this life. I wish to be faithful to Dea. I want to strive to  remember that my moods and words affect those around me. These are some of the inner seeds of Wisdom that I wish to plant in my soul-garden.

During this time, I have realized that there is much that I must let go in order for the seeds that I have planted to grow and to be nourished. I must take care that these seeds will not be destroyed by the choking weeds of strife and disharmony. It’s a time for me to concentrate on living my Faith, caring for my family and for being true to my True Self.

Though eternity is out of time, here, in manifest creation, time is considered sacred because each moment of life is sacred. Each hour, each day, each month and each Season of life is holy and is meant to be lived to its fullest with gratitude. Even during times of trial and suffering, there is always something to be found for which we may be grateful and Our Holy Mother and the Great Janati are always ready to assist us. I am grateful for my Faith and for my family.

The Twilight time of Autumn, which is associated with the Element of Water in our Tradition, is a time of intuition and introspection. It is a time to assess our emotions and to search out those areas of our lives where we may foster greater Order and Harmony. Once our souls are ruled by Harmony, this Grace, which stems from the Fountain of Madria Thema, will flow within us, through this world and in all the worlds to come, as our beautiful Silver Star of the Waters prayer so aptly states.

The Apple or Abal from the Old Welsh, is the symbol for this Season containing within, the five seeds of wisdom. I bless and wear an apple pendant during this Season in honor of Our Lady, Apple of Wisdom.

May Our Lady bless you,

Blessed is She.

Title 3, Chapter 5 THE SERMON OF THE APPLE SEED

1. From the branch of a tree, the Daughter plucked an apple, and She split the apple in two halves, so that the five-pointed star formed by its seeds might be seen. 2. Then She removed the seed representing the topmost point, and held it in the palm of Her hand. And She spoke, saying: 3. “Like to this apple seed is all the teaching I have given and shall give to you. 4. Like to the full apple is all the knowledge relative to your sphere of being, 5. Like to all the other apples of the tree is the knowledge relative to all the numberless spheres. 6. But behind these spheres lies a deeper reality; changeless, beyond the impermanent flux of time. 7. For even as the apple turns from bud to bloom, from blossom to the fruit, ripens, matures, decays and is reborn; 8. so also shall the spheres and galaxies, the subtle realms, the sure and solid earth; so shall all these in their season pass away, and in their season be reborn again. 9. Thus has it been ten thousand times before, and countless times again, thus shall it be.
