    Although the Feast of Divine Life has a much broader significance, which you can read about in “Cuivanya: The Autumnal Equinox”, I always think of it as the Apple Festival. Apples have been associated with Divine Life and immortality in many traditions – this image is of Iduna, who in Norse mythology tended the golden apples of eternal youth.

  • I have been thinking a lot about these two because I see on elektraspace they don’t get the appreciation they deserve. I wrote some short poems for them. Not my best work admittedly, but I would still like to share them.

    Sai Vikhe,
    Lady of war
    Lady of courage
    Lady of valor
    Let your fire warm my heart
    And keep me strong and confident

  • Rill-san,

    Please do not apologize! You have not ruined any positivity of the experience, and yet, hearing of the traditional view was very humbling, and I believe was important to realign myself from the modern view of the Eclipse. Your words are a balm to my heart and a great reassurance.

    How to express… This is very humbling. I walked in,…[Read more]

  • Rayati Mei-chei,

    There is no need for apology, nor is there anything to forgive. I do feel bad for taking away from your powerful experience, and I humbly ask your forgiveness for doing so.

    I do not think it was foolish to go, in that pretty much everyone was telling us to go watch, that this was a “once in a lifetime event.” On the day of and…[Read more]

  • A side note:
    My response had a poor sort of slant to it, from being relatively normal to becoming most apologetic. I most felt the implication of things in the middle of the post and felt the need to express that most immediately.

    And I apologize if I do not make much sense; I ought to be sleeping right now! I am still worn out from travel. I…[Read more]

  • Rill-san,

    I am honored to hear your response on the topic! I know now that it is tradition to avoid viewing the Eclipse, though I must shamefully confess that I did not know that before hand. I had made the promise to my family that I should attend with them last year, and so it was not possible for me to back out.

    I am beyond grateful that I…[Read more]

    The Day of Werde– coming up this Wednesday – is the celebration of the Janya known as the Great Weaver, Sai Werde, who holds the threads of existence and interweaves the lives and destinies of individuals and communities. She has three Aspects or Persons known as the Three Fates.
    The Day of Werde is often a day for consideration of the dir…[Read more]

  • Rayati Honored Mei-chei,

    It sounds like it was a powerful experience for you. I know that the event was extremely popular in the U.S.

    I personally did not watch the Eclipse. I stayed home with the blinds closed. I also took in anything precious from the garden that was moveable, like my outdoor Maria-sama and my fairy garden. I also made sure…[Read more]

  • Rayati, honored ones!

    About an hour ago, I arrived home from Idaho, USA. I travelled with family to go view the solar eclipse.

    Now, I have seen discussion of the solar eclipse being something of a “mini Hiatus”, and even though I did not become aware of this discussion until I came home tonight, it is the mindset with which I began the…[Read more]

    Miss Venus,

    I am very, very, very new here – I know little about the Aphrodite Cocktail Bar, though it is on my list of research topics. I do not know if I was even all that old when it originated. I’m quite young, only starting my first year of university this fall!

    Nevertheless, I ramble. I think that, and this is perhaps very uninformed, it…[Read more]

  • Miss Venus,

    It sounds as though you’ve also made your way onto the Tellurian De’anic blogosphere.

    If I may be so bold as to make a suggestion, I have found that it is far better to avoid it.

    I sought out Tellurian De’anists for the community – who does not wish for a faith community?

    But I have found that it is more filled with Tellurian…[Read more]

  • Well, as for the reason maidens don’t tend to pair off here…

    If you mean in the marrying sense, you must remember that the Herthelani, including the Far Herthelani, marry at much lower rates than Tellurians. Think a third of the population. It’s just happened so far that by the time the proportion of very active Far Herthelani who might be…[Read more]

  • How strange! It’s not as though he had a dearth of patriarchal religions to choose from! One wonders that he did not seek them out instead.

  • I’m quite sorry Elefarya Rosamunda-chei. Sometimes I ramble. I guess what I am asking is would that kind of philosophy be appropriate for Chelouranya? I am also inquiring about Chelouranyan relationships and why people do not pair off.

    Petite Sorciere-chei, thank you very much! Your answer has helped me much!

  • らヤチ,

    My apologies for my late replies. I do have the link to the mascul in question, but I will not post it unless anyone wants it out of fear of being rude.

    I am only slightly familiar with this person. He did not seem to grasp female essentialism and if I remember correctly he attempted to add men to Deanism. Deanism is a beautiful relig…[Read more]

  • Rayati Miss Venus,

    I think the problem is that “Aphroditism” was something some people talked about for a while but very much a passing phase. I kind of remember reading the expression in old forums. I haven’t heard it for ages and am not entirely sure what it meant.

    I would think rather than being an old way of Aristasia it was probably more…[Read more]

  • Rayati Miss Venus,
    Oh dear. I don’t wish you to feel neglected, but I’m at a loss as to what exactly it is you are asking. The maidens best equipped to answer you are not exactly available right now, and I came aboard well after the Aphrodite Cocktail Bar. I do hope you get an answer eventually.
    In Amity,
    Elefarya Rosamunda

  • Rayati!

    I hope this doesn’t offend anyone. I am new and I’ll delete it if it does.

    I was looking into old Aristasia (just because I find what they write so fascinating) and I came across the old Aphrodite Cocktail Bar and Aphroditism. I know some of the old ways of Aristasia were carried over into Chelouranya, even though they are very different…[Read more]

    Rayati, ah yes, Mie-chei and Miss Venus, I didn’t really expect you to be near enough to drop by but it is worth asking! I am sure we will meet if we are meant to, whatever the distances. Rayati and love, Clare Trent

  • Rayati, Clare-chei! It’s very nice to meet you.

    I am unfortunately in Texas. I would have loved to do just that but I am planning a trip to Toronto for the next year. It does sound like a wonderful retreat. If things go awry with my trip to Canada I’ll be sure to swing by California if possible.

    In amity,
