On July 13th 1527, the noted magician & astronomer who studied at Cambridge named John Dee was born. John Dee made quite a name for himself and his reputation was outstanding. He served the court of Queen Elizabeth I as a consultant, and then created the largest personal library in the world. John Dee spent his entire life studying the Occult and Magic. While many tried to murder him for being a buddy of the devil, Queen Elizabeth I made sure that didn’t happen. While no one could burn his alive, though, after her death in 1603, John Dee was still forced to die a pauper five years later in his home at Mortlake—(Being shunned by James I–her successor) among the many books and literary wonders he had spent his life collecting.
According to Ancient Egypt, Ra, their Sun God was born on this day.
And once the sun went down (as Ra bid his good-byes) the Welsh would have been having a feast, marking their calendars for Gwyl o Cerridwen–in honor of their Goddess Cerridwen, who stood for fertility. She was a triple Goddess–representing maiden, mother, and crone.
