Ancient Calendar: June 10th, 2010

Today in Ancient History, our Ancestors would have celebrated Anahita & Duir.

Little is known about the Goddess Anahita and where she originated from but we do know she ended up a Persian and her name meant ‘unstained’. Making a grand appearance in the the last part of Avesta,(Zoroastrian Texts) in 200BC she was known as the immaculate virgin mother of the Mithras. Her temple existed in Kangavar.

The Celtic Tree Month of Duir starts today. (Remember, many still mark their calendars.) Duir was the oak tree, in which the Druids held higher than all others. This month was also special to them because it includes the Summer Solstice.
