Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays : November 19th: The Goddess of the Harvest


 Rome’s Observance for Ops



Ops is a Goddess of Rome and today is an informal Observance in honor of her. Rites and rituals are done  on this day having some special rules to them. Those doing the rituals would have to remain seated so that their feet touched her earth.

 Ops happened to be the wife of Saturn, the God of Sowing. So while her God Sows, she is the Goddess of Harvest.

Not only is Ops the Goddess of Harvest but she is also the Goddess of an ‘Abundant’ Harvest.
