By Jove

 

A Roman festival known as Epulum Jovis in Capitola, was held on this day for Jupiter (who was celebrated for three days, beginning today) and Juno, Featuring feasting and wine-drinking, followed by games and dancing. The astrological influence of Jupiter will be felt when the planet becomes the ruler of the heavens, beginning tend days from now. Juno represent plenty and female fertility. Wiccans and Witches can invoke both the kind and queen of the Roman pantheon on this night in their love rituals, conception is particularly well-starred

 

Woman Power

American women’s-right pioneer Elizabeth Cady Stanton was born on this day in 1815, she dedicated her life to the struggle for women’s right, and helped secure female suffrage and other victories. Reflect, today on your rights and on the importance of not taking them for granted.
