Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays : November 24th: Reuniting Isis and Osiris, Offerings to Sekhmet, A Celtic Tree Month Ends

Egypt

The Feast of Burning Lamps will be held in Ancient Egypt today. This is an observance of Isis and Osiris.  Today, they are reunited again after Osiris’s death and Isis’s long journey in search of his body and securing Egypt an heir.

 

Also in Egypt today, if you have offerings for Sekhmet, then this is the day to drop it off. Remember, she feeds the dead in the Underworld, so making an offering of wine and cake to her today is more than respectful.

 

The Celtic Tree Month of Ngetal Ends today

Recapping, and throwing another well maintained and informative site into the spotlight:

Ngetal – Reed
Month: October
Color: Grass Green

Ancient Calendar& Pagan Holidays: July 19: Adonis & an Egyptian New Year

Adonis was the beloved of Aphrodite. However, during a hunting accident, he was killed by a boar. Aphrodite lost her mind over this, as any lover would. So, pleading and begging Zeus to return him, he compromised. Waving his Godly hand, or however them Gods there do it, *winks* he made it so that Adonis would spend half the year in the light with Aphrodite, and the other half in the darkness of the Underworld with Persephone. So today, in Ancient Greek calendar, Adonis’s travels would mark the mid point of the half year.

 

 

In Egypt, This would have been the New year, but also the wedding anniversary of our dearest Isis and Osiris. How neat is that?

Ancient Calendar: Osiris, Rune Ur: July 14, 2010

The Ancient Egyptian’s would have celebrated the birthday of Osiris today. One of the most popular gods of Egypt, he ended up becoming the God of the Underworld, proving to Egyptians that there was life after death, and promising them renewed life under his protection and domain.

 

The Runic half-month of of Ur starts today. Ur stands for strength and new beginnings, so for those looking to venture out for a new start, or are in need of extra help, now is the time to proceed.

Pagan Holidays for April 2, 2010

Our Ancient Celtic Ancestors made this day sacred to Elena, their Goddess whom is also known as Helen, representing that of the Holy Road. In the King Author stories, she was named Elaine.

On this day in Egyptian Calendar, our beloved Osiris goes forth from the Mountain. And I’d like to quote something from my favorite book……

The doors of perception open; what was hidden has been revealed. It is myself I see and a thousand colors swirling in liquid light. I am where the sun sets below the mountains. I am in this body. I am that star rising above the clouds hung by a thread from its ocean moon. Hail myself traversing eternity walking among the gods, a shuttle flying across the loom through the threads of time. This is all one place, one cloth: a man’s life endures. On earth flowers grow, snakes crawl and wisdom lies in the palm of a hand. All that is will be—hawks and sparrows, the thousand lives within.

I have come home. I have entered humanhood, bound to rocks and plants, men and women, rivers and sky. I shall be with you in this and other worlds. When the cat arches in the doorway, think of me. I have sometimes been like that. When two men greet each other in the street, I am there speaking to you. When you look up, know I am there—sun and moon pouring my love around you. All these things I am, portents, images, signs. Though apart, I am a part of you. One million things in the universe, I am the universe, too. You think I disguise myself as rivers and trees simply to confuse you? Whatever I am, woman, cat or lotus,the same god breathes in every body. You and I together are a single creation. neither death nor spite nor fear nor ignorance stops my love for you.

May we come and go in and out of heaven through the gates of starlight. As the houses of earth fill with dancing and song, so filled are the houses of heaven. I com, in truth. I sail a long a river and row back again. It is joy to breathe under the stars. I am the sojourner destined to walk a thousand years until I arrive at myself.

Chapter 67 Hymn to Osiris
