for a total of 236,870 (unknowns listed)

Frank Donovan says: “Several modern writers claim that 9,000,000
people met their deaths during the witchcraft persecution but offer no valid
statistical records to support this estimate. On the other end of the scale is
the ‘educated guess’ of R.H.Robbins and others that the total may have been
about 200,000. Contemporary records are spotty and incomplete. Many deaths
were probably never recorded and other archives have been lost thru time.” It
is this writer’s opinion that – one-half million – executed is a reasonable
estimated total.

******************************************

I am compiling a listing of Protestants killed by Catholics, and a
listing of Protestants killed by Catholics. Contributions to all these lists
are solicited. The rules are:

1) You must have the NAME of the person killed. If all that is known
is HOW MANY were killed, this will be acceptable.
2) You must have a DATE. Day-month-year is preferred, but month-year
or year-only is acceptable.
3) You must have a LOCATION. Town-nation is best, but nation-only is
acceptable
3) You must REFERENCE your contribution.
4) Please follow the format as you see it above.

nb: I am not, at this time, compiling a list of Jews killed for their faith.
To list the six million names from the Holocaust of World War II alone
would be too much, and beyond comprehension. They are NOT forgotten!
Neither are the martyred Baha’is in Iran, nor the Muslim/Christian/Jew
problems current in the Mid-East…..nor the Muslim/Hindu troubles, nor
the……..well, add your own here.

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Dec. 31 is The Ancestors

Your Ancient Symbol Card for Today

Ancestors

Ancestors represents the ongoing influence and remarkable contributions those who came before us have made to our state of being. Ancestors also reminds us that sometimes old wisdom is the best wisdom–especially when events are moving in ways we do not understand. Ancestors can bring comfort to a shaken spirit. It is a card of warmth in the sense that it reminds us that the spirit of past generations remains with us and can be called upon for guidance at any time.

As a daily card, Ancestors suggests that you may be well served to by exploring your family tree to find solutions to current dilemmas. When searching for solutions to conflicts in your life, you might do well by asking yourself what a grandparent or great grandparent would do in your current situation.

Celebrating Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Festival of Epona

December 18th

Festival of Epona, Mesa de Gallo

This was another of the festivals dedicated to the Celtic horse Goddess, Epona. Her worship was most popular in eastern Gaul and on the German frontier. So popular was Epona that she was honored with festivals in Rome, which was unique for a Gaulish deity. Epona was sometimes associated with the Celtic Mother Goddesses, and in Germany she was portrayed as a triple Mother Goddess.

An annual festival in the Philippines, Mesa de Gallo begins at sunrise when the people take to the streets with every imaginable noisemaker in existence. The parades of people clanking, banging, and hooting are believed to frighten away the evil spirits that may linger and thus affect future crops and harvest

Magickal Activity for this day:

Change Your Luck Spell

Items needed:  One black-cat candle; patchouli oil; a mirror.

Anoint the black-cat candle with the oil. As you do this, visualize your luck changing and good things coming to you. Place the cat candle on the mirror (reflective side up). Light the candle and chant:

“Black cat power,
From this hour,
Reflect the light,
Make things right.”
 

Leave the candle to burn for one hour. Repeat this spell every night, at the same time, until the candle has been consumed. Discard any wax left and put the mirror away.

Celebrating Other Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Buchmesse

magick89

October 16th and 17th

Kan-name-Sai Cermony, Hengest, Buchmesse

Annually on this date, the Japanese Shinto ceremony of Kan-name-Sai or good Tasting Event takes place. The rice from the first harvest is offered to the Imperial Ancestors, and the ancient Sun Goddess, Ama-terasu, is honored. In Asian countries, rice is the main source of nourishment, equal to that of wheat in Europe. In Japan, rice is the symbol of abundance and divine provision. It represents immortality, happiness, fertility, primordial purity, glory, solar power, knowledge and happiness and fecundity, which is its significance when thrown over brides at weddings.

In modern Asatru, the 17th of October is the feast of Hengest, the Saxon general, who along with Horsa, in the fifth century C.E., began the Germanic settlement of eastern Britain, which eventually became England.

Buchmesse is held in Germany each year at this time and is the world’s largest book fair for the publishing industry. More than 90 countries send exhibitors featuring their latest titles with attendance reaching more than 200,000 people.

Celebrating Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Festival of Meditrinalia

magick89

October 11, 12 and 13

Festival of Meditrinalia, Festival of Fortuna Redux, Fontinalia

Little is known about the ancient Roman festival of Meditrinalia, other than it was celebrated on this day, and was in some way concerned with the new wine vintage. The festival was associated with Jupiter and with the Goddess Meditrina, apparently invented to explain the festival.

The festival of Fortuna Redux (Fortuna the home-bringer) is held in celebration of Augustus’s reentry into Rome, at which time the Senate held a dedication of Fortuna Redux’s altar. Her temple was built in the Campus Martius by the emperor Domitian to celebrate his military victories in Germany. Fortuna Redux is just one aspect of the great Goddess Fortuna, who was believed to be in charge of steering people’s destinies.

Fontinalia is the festival of the God Fons. The ancient Roman was held in honor of the God of springs and fresh water. Flower garlands were thrown into the springs and placed around the tops of wells to appease the God and ask his continued blessing on the fresh water supply. These types of festivals have little meaning for most of us today, but to our ancestors fresh water and an abundant harvest were not luxury items, but rather essential to their survival. Whatever it took to assure their continuance was done and usually with lavish abandon.

Celebrating Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Oct. 7th, Kermesse

2444

Celebrating Spirituality 365 Days A Year

October 7th

Kermesse

This unique festival dates back to 15th-century Germany. Traditionally, this weeklong celebration focused on the digging up of an effigy that had been buried the year before. The object was ritually unearthed and then mounted on a brightly decorated pole that was paraded through the streets to announce the beginning of the festival. The opening procession was followed by a week of games, feasting, and dancing. At the end of the festival, the participants would dress up in their mourning attire and rebury the effigy in its grave, where it would remain until the next Kermesse.

Feng Shui News for June 14th – ‘Family History Day’

As you might imagine, ‘Family History Day’ is a perfect time to activate the energies of your ‘Family/Friends/Ancestors’ area. To locate this space, stand at your formal front entryway, facing in. The center or middle of the left-hand wall is ascribed to these energies of family, friends and ancestors. Since this is also a wood element arena (think family tree and roots), you can place a healthy green plant in this space in order to trigger excellent energies. You can even place a happy family photo in a wooden frame in this same space for those same auspicious results.
