Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: January 2

Today happens to be the birthday of Sumerian Goddess Inanna.  She is the princess of Earth & the Queen of Heaven.

In Egypt, we are celebrating the Advent of Isis. Most of you know Isis as being the Goddess of love, fertility, and much more. She was the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus.

Now, today is also known as Terrestrial Perihelion. You’re probably saying ‘What?”.

Well the ‘what’ is that Earth will come as close as it ever will to the Sun today during it’s orbit. Now how many of you knew that? Well, now ya do!

Pagan Days for Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Wednesday is the day of Woden.

Woden is the God of knowledge, enlightenment, wisdom, & war.

Some believe Woden is also Odin—God of the Norse.

Matters & Magical Workings For Wednesday

Today is a good day to deal with matters or rituals and spells concerning anything business. Or perhaps some sort of communication. Maybe debt—something we all have these days, or what about  fear and or possibly loss? Matters or magic concerning money, or work, some type of travel. And then there’s education.

* Waxing Moon Magic *

From seven to fourteen days after the new moon.The waxing moon is for constructive magick, such as love, wealth, success, courage, friendship, luck or health.

 

Today the Egyptians will celebrate their Goddess Isis—one of my favorite Goddesses. And she deserves an observance too, don’t you think? After all, she is the Goddess of love, of fertility of the land, it’s beasts and it’s people and of peace. Now while most Pagans won;t have time to do a grand ritual for Isis today, remember what made her awesome was the fact that all could easily relate to her. So simply give a minute of thought…and I’m sure she will walk with you like no other.

 

Today also belongs to the Sumerian Goddess Inanna.

Her story is unique as well, for she walks through the seven gates of the underworld losing bits of her jewelry and clothing through each of them until at last she reaches the seventh completely naked.

There, she was destroyed by the Queen of the Dead ,but her uncle Enki brought her back to life under the condition that she choose someone else to take her place in the Underworld. She chose her ex-lover Dumizi who usurped her throne in her absence. Strangely though, she came to miss him and because of that, she convinced each of her sisters to spend half of each year in the Underworld, taking his place so that she may have him back at times. The dark months of winter mark the time that Inanna and Dumizi are separated.

Hope you enjoyed today’s Pagan holiday…

See you tomorrow for another!!!!!
