The Pagan Book of Days for Thursday, July 7th


The Consualia/Caprotina?Feriae Ancillarum/Nones of July?Celtic tree month of Duir ends
The Roman festival of the Consualia commemorates Consus, the god of harvests, presaging a good harvest later in the month. Today is also the Feriae Ancillarum, the Festival of Handmaids or the maids’ day out, when the maids of Rome were beyond the control of their mistresses. Fig trees were venerated on this day, with feasting beneath them in honor of Caprotina, an aspect of the Goddess Juno.
