Give praise to the Mother of All Things and praise to Her Daughter. Rejoice, for the world is renewed. Happy Easter! Happy New Year! Read about the High Feast of Easter

Kala, the Last Day

The last day of Moura, which is the last day of the year and the first day of the Easter festival, is known as Kala. This is also the name of that aspect of Werde associated with cutting the thread of being. It is the day when the Daughter passes through the seven gates of the Nether World and is slain by the Dark Queen. The following time is known as Hiatus, when all things are desolate. See this Easter hymn and the Marianna Maria chant. For more about this festival, which this year begins on March 18, read All About Easter.

The High Feast of Nativity

And a cry issued out of the cave, saying: The holy Child is born from the most holy Mother; Light has come forth from Light, Perfection from Perfection. And at once the air was filled with the daughters of heaven, and the sky was ablaze with the radiance of their joy. The joyous festival of the Nativity of the Daughter celebrates the birth of Light in the Cave of the World, the great Event that sustains the life of the cosmos. A blessed Nativity to you all.

Cuivanya, the Feast of Divine Life

Cuivanya, the Autumn Equinox festival, celebrates our Mother God as the Ground of All Being and the Creatrix of the World. Its central symbol is the apple. The whole universe is but the manifestation of the Spirit of Dea. All things, from the vast galaxies to a blade of grass, are Divine Ideas in the Mind of Our Lady infused into material substance. Traditionally "the World" refers both to the particular world we inhabit (the ground beneath our feet and all that stands thereon or flies above it) and the entire cosmos, both physical and non-physical.

Chelanya: The Golden Festival

The first Festival of the Mysteries of Life season is Chelanya, the Golden Festival. It is celebrated on Kerea 22nd/August 1st. The dominant symbol of the festival is corn or wheat, which flourishes at the touch of the Sun, manifesting the rich Solar Gold upon the field of matter. The corn is also symbolic of sacrifice and resurrection, as it is cut down and grows again – in this connection it is usually paired with the sickle.
