This Month's Festivals
This month has been a very Zeus-themed month. First, we celebrated the Diogennia on January 5th, and today was the Gamelia.
For both events, all the Gods were invoked, and so this is a pretty image-heavy edition. The majority of the following images are from Diogennia, courtesy of Scarlet Rose.
Asklepios and Hygeia
Gaia and the Gods of Earth, Sky, and Sea
Ganymede and Herakles
Gods of the Year and Month: Prometheus and Selene
Hades and Persephone
Hera (on Diogennia)
Hestia (on Diogennia)
For Diogennia, we consecrated candles to represent the light of Zeus, which is said to help us bring balance and order to our lives.
And of course, for Gamelia, we offered wedding cake as part of the feast.
It seemed fitting that, as with any royal wedding, there would be ambassadors from other lands to bring their well-wishes. Therefore, we also set aside an area for Foreign Gods, which was designated as "The Embassy."
