The Wicca Book of Days for Saturday, October 3rd – Wine for Well-being


Gothic Comments
Wine for Well-being

Although its details have been obscured by the passing of time, it is likely that a festival name the Meditrinalia was celebrated in Rome on this day. Essentially a wine festival, when all vintages were enjoyed, the Meditrinalia was dedicated to meditrina, a Roman goddess of healing who was said to use wine, herbs and magick as curatives. As they imbibed people recited the following words: novum vetus vinum bibo, novo veteri, morbo medeor (Latin for “new and old wine I drink, of disease new and old I’m cured”).

 

The Empress

Today, editate on the major arcana Tarot card of the Empress (number III). A crowned and enthroned woman is pictured holding a scepter in her right hand, often surrounded by fertility symbols. She signifies the pinnacle of feminine achievement on Earth, and may also represent female fecundity.
