Hopping a magic carpet back to Ancient times, we discover that…..
Today in Roman there is a festival called Carmentalia which is a celebration for the Italian Goddess named Carmenta, who is known for her gifts of prophecy. Roman women would especially attend at Carmenta’s temple and shrine. She especially guarded and protected women during labor.
Another Goddess of Rome that was in charge of prophecy as well as divine fountains is one by the name of Juturna—loved by the God Jupiter. She will be honored today as well.
Today would have been Plough Monday in some parts of England. This would be the day that everyone returned to work after the sacred day of Yule. Plough Monday marked a time of huge celebration and happiness. Men would dress up as eccentric and as lavish as possible, then dance from home to home, cottage to cottage, putting their foot down for food and drink. Something like Halloween (of our day) if one refused a treat they were given a trick, on plough Monday if you refused to give the man a drink or food then he and his friends would plough up your yard.
Ancient Egypt will be honoring Sokar—a funerary God whose Cult was in the dead center of Necropolis which was located in the city of Memphis. He was painted with a mans body and a head of a hawk. It was very normal to see his image painted all over the tombs of royalty.
Monday (moon day) is the day of the Moon Goddess, Selene, Luna, & Mani.
Mondays are an awesome day to take care of matters or magical rituals and spells concerning:
Traveling, memory, one’s instinct, sharpening or increasing Psychic abilities, dreams, healing, home, ancestors and of course, family.
