Ancient Calendar: June 3, 2010

Willow - MayDay

June: Pagan Artist of the Month: Willow Arleana

Rome is kicking off their second Festival this week, all in the name of their Goddess Pax and the Greek Goddess Eirene.

There isn’t a lot said about Pax, and even the encyclopedia, is lacking in my never-so-humble- opinion. Credited with being of Peace, and we all known Rome needed an ocean load of that—why with all their warring and pissing in everyone’s Pepsi—but she was also the patron of wealth. Other sources say that she has another festival come January 3. Hopefully I won’t forget about that come January.

  1. Under the rule of Augustus, Pax was recognized as a goddess proper. She had a minor sanctuary, the Ara Pacis, on the Campus Martius, and a temple on the Forum Pacis. Her attributes are the olive branch, a cornucopia, and a scepter. A gorgeous bronze sculpture in her honor was created by Ernst Wenck recently going for about 2,000 Euros. Apparently Ernst thinks she’s hot!

    Get this she had a celebration on July 4th too!
