Pagan Holidays for March 1, 2, 3, 2010

 

  • March 1, 2010

Busy, busy, busy day in Ancient Rome as March 1st was dedicated to their adored Goddess Juno Lucina under the guise of a Festival called Matronalia. This becomes a day of women—when women receive gifts by the men living in their household. At the end of the day, the women invoke Juno to bless them with prospering marriage.

Now while that’s going on, the sacred fires inside the Temple of the Vesta will be renewed. The Vestal Virgins who resided in Vesta’s temple would make sure those fires burned always. Vesta stood for fire and the hearth.  If these fires died, a great horror would befall Rome–a natural catastrophe greatly feared. Also Rome–the Kalends of March begin on this day.

Today in Ancient Egypt, Khepri will go forth–the god of creation and renewal.

At Sundown, the Welsh will begin Gwyl o Merriddyn once more, a Feast for Merlin.

In Celtic belief, there is a God who is known for his Holy Wells and Healing Springs. His symbol if the Tree of Life. His name is Ceadda and this day is sacred to him.

We honor and make sacred this day to Mother March-–the Goddess who protects women who have brought forth life.

The Scottish Celts believe that today—the stirrings and behavior of Crows could give us great signs of prophecy. So they would pay very close attention to them on this day…will you?

Bring forth Aegir, the great Norse God of the sea! Aegir represents how unpredictable a man’s life can be and the power and undeniable strength of the ocean. His wife, the Goddess Ran, even looks after sailors who have been drowned. Beware though, Ran is a tricky woman…she will hide behind reefs, wave, or rock…luring ships to their doom.

 

At sundown, the Welsh will begin an Observance called Rhyfeddod Lleiaf o Rhiannon-–defined as the lesser mysteries in honor of their grand Goddess Rhiannon. This observance will go on until March the 6th–sunrise.

 

Hope you enjoyed these!!!!
