FALL

     SACRED SEASON OF FALL

Correspondences:

Archangel: St. Gabrielle. (LINK). Direction: West. Element: Water.Time of Day: Twilight. Sacred Symbol: the White Lily. Sacred Colors: Silver and White. Seasonal Color: Blue. Season of Our Heavenly Mother.

Note: The Sacred Colors are the colors associated with St. Gabrielle as the Ruler of the Moon. The Seasonal Color is the Elemental color for Water.

Legend has it that St. Gabrielle held a lily in her hand during the Annunciation which is why in most artwork, she is depicted holding a lily. St. Gabriel/le is depicted as both male and female and so by this, we know they are a syzygy, a Divine Pair, similar to the Gnostic Aeons, but her correspondences are all female. LINK TO COME

In ancient tradition, just as each Sunday is the day of Our Lord or Our Lord’s Day, Saturday is known as Our Lady’s Day. We observe it in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary and of Our Holy Mother Spirit, Our Divine Mother God.

We greet Her on Friday evenings by lighting Her candles and we pay honor to Her the next day. Please note that the candle lighting has been inspired by the Sabbath Queen of Judaism, but this is not the Jewish Shabbat we are celebrating.

For the complete traditional liturgical calendar, please see traditio.com or the Christian calendar of other denominations.
