The Wicca Book of Days for July 4th – Saluting The Sun

The Wicca Book of Days for July 4th

Saluting the Sun

 

In ancient Egypt, Ra, the Sun God, received special attention in the form of sacrifices from his Earth-bound worshipers on the fourth day of each month. At temples dedicated to Ra, thrice-daily rituals were performed by the high priest, who had purified himself in the waters of the sacred lake before approaching the inner sanctum containing the statue that, it was believed, housed the God’s essence. At dawn, this divine image would be “awakened” by the smell of burning incense before being washed, anointed, dressed, and presented with food and other offerings.

Independence Day

On this Independence Day, thank your lucky stars (if you are an American citizen) that you are free to worship as you wish. The First Amendment of the U. S. Constitution reads: “Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
