Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: June 28th: Runic New Year, Hemera, Ra & Nun

 

For those who follow the whisper of the Runes, then pay close attention because today marks the completion of a year…that’s right, the Month of Dag bows it’s head and says good-bye…for now.

 

In other civilizations, Greek to be exact, Hemera was said to be born on this day. Hemera, interesting to me, because Erebus–the God of darkness and primeval chaos was said to be her father and Nyx, her sister, the Goddess of night.

 

Now scanning the distance across oceans of ancient sands, we take a look at Egypt, who would have been celebrating Ra and Nun on this day. According to their calendar, Ra would go forth and make peace with Nun.  Now we know Ra is the Sun God, but most do not know that Nun happens to be the God of primeval waters which existed long before the universe was ever created. Even though the Universe came into existence, Nun still existed, only his waters flowed within the earth and in the deep depths of the Nile.
