The Sun Wheel

Today marks the first day of the SunWheel. The Déanic SunWheel, created by ArchMatrona Georgia Cobb of the Lady of Light Chantry, is the Déanic version of the advent wreath, a custom which pre-dated Christianity. Instructions and links may be found here: https://deanic.com/the-sun-wheel/.

Calling All Translators:

The Society for Filianic Studies (http://www.filianicstudies.org/) is currently seeking volunteer translators to render the Clear Recital and associated texts into additional languages. Project teams have already been formed, at varying levels of activity and progress, for Spanish, Dutch, and Greek. All of these teams would benefit from additional participants and it is desired to form new teams for as many languages as possible. No prior translation experience is necessary.
“The project’s editor—a former freelance translator—supports all of the language teams by providing a computer-assisted ‘rough draft’ translation as a basis for the work. By eliminating a lot of the rote, bulk translation in this way, volunteers are able to focus on issues of word choice and style that require the sensitivities of a native speaker (or a speaker very close to native-level fluency). The editor also handles all ‘back end’ issues of typesetting and readying the completed translations for publication and distribution. With this workflow, the time commitment demanded of volunteers is kept to a minimum. Translators work at their own pace as they are willing and able to contribute, with no rush or arbitrary deadlines. Collaboration is usually through Google Docs, but other arrangements can be made if needed.
Those interested in participating should contact the editor directly at racemochridhe@gmail.com Thank you.

New from the Lady of Light Chantry:
ArchMatrona Ghrian has recently announced that she accepts Sisters/Sorelle in addition to the chantresses!
(She has also posted the start of the Sun Wheel and the beautiful ringing the Silver Branch ritual. See above).

The Seven Sophias
There is a very interesting article to be found here: https://monasticmatrix.osu.edu/commentaria/transformations-sophia in which the Seven Forms of Sophia are mentioned.

For Sophian Déanists, I propose an alternate Seven Sophias:
1) The Gnostic Sophia
2) The Holy Spirit
3) The Virgin Mary
4) Lady Philosophy, Mother of the Seven Liberal Arts
5) The Goddess Natura
6) The World Soul/Holy Soul of the World
7) The Déanic Sophia.

Seven Lamps of Fire – Research by ArchMatrona Ghrain LLC

The LLC – Seven Lamps of Fire [aka The Seven Spirits of Déa]

Archmatrona Ghrain (Rt. Rev. Georgia Cobb) of the Lucienne Tradition has researched this item and the associated lighting ritual. She demonstrates how applicable it is to the Déanic Faith and our expanding understanding of the Seven Living Emanations of Déa: the Janae.

(I was fortunate in visiting various ethnic and faith communities within Israel and Palestine during the festival of Chanukah/Hanukkah with my Mother’s close friend Sara Elkes (brother Joel) during a Miriam and Elkhanan Elkes Association for Inter-Community Understanding trip. A memorable visit on so many levels. Madria Sophia)

According to Clement of Alexandria and Philo Judaeus, the seven lamps of the golden menorah represented the seven classical planets in this order: the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.[25].

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Menorah_(Temple)

When lighting a Seven Branch Temple Menorah, the officiate uses one source of flame to light all seven candles, in the following order: 1st Sun [Center], 2nd Moon, 3rd, Mars, [Right to Left], 4th Mercury, 5thJupiter [Right to Left]; 6th Venus, 7th Saturn [Right-Left].
