Today is Saturday, November 14th, 2009

Saturday is the day of Seatere, Seater, Saturn, and Loki—trickster of the Norse Culture.

Saturday is a good day to deal with matters and or invoke magical spells concerning:

A Gift of some sort, and or maybe something to do with your property?

Are you moving your home? Is someone else moving their home? Do you have matters concerning the elderly and or maybe you need to work on self discipline?

Remember that Saturday belongs to Saturn and the Element of Earth.

Today’s Moon Phase:  Waning Crescent

Lots of stuff happening on November 14th:

 

The Celtic Festival of Dubricius

The Celts also made this day sacred to the Goddess Moccas

~

Druids Traditional Feast of the Muscians

~

Greek Festival of Oschophoria

~

Egyptian 3rd day of Isis

~

 

If we could hop a time machine visiting each of these cultures, this would be what we’d find….

We could watch  in Celts during their history as they celebrated by having a Festival for Dubriciu– who was said to have crowed King Author in Colchester. They would also be honoring Moccas by making this day sacred to her–a Celtic pig Goddess.

While the Celtics were doing their thing, the Druids were doing their own. Today they would be having the Feast of the Musicians which was a huge celebration in honor of Musicians and Bards.

~

Hoping the time warped fence into Ancient Greece, we would find them having the Festival of Oschophoria.

This would be a grand celebration. Why? Because it was all about Dionysus, the Greek God of Wine and Fertility. Oh he was a much loved and highly favored God to. I mean who didn’t;t envy a God who was known to walk the face of the earth with his own entourage of Nymphs, Woodland Spirits and Satyrs. This God was clearly the rock star of his day—I mean why wouldn’t he be? Everywhere he went vines sprung forth from the earth and there was peace and absolute happiness.

~

Now let’s take a peek into Egypt where we find the 3rd day of Isis. If you remember– two days ago began the journey of Isis in search of her husband’s body. Yesterday, she mourned for him, and today…oh yes, today Isis finds the body of her beloved Osiris.

That’s it for today folks and I guess that’s a good thing since so much is going on. So who do I drop off where? Who will be staying in Greece and who will be skipping over the Egypt? or maybe we lost a few in Celt-land or did they sneak off to stay a spell with the Druids? Never the less, join us tomorrow for another fabulous Pagan Day in History!
