Wednesday 12th August is the Day of the Light of Aset (Isis).
On this day Aset (Isis) is celebrated with all forms of light including sun worship, during the day and candles at night.
Interesting that it is very close to the date for the Roman Festival of Diana, which no doubt was a development from the Egyptian Festival.
Thursday 13th August, in Roman tradition, was the Festival of Diana, being the date upon which King Servius Tullius dedicated her shrine on the Aventine Hill in Rome in the mid-sixth century BCE.
Diana was the hunting goddess, associated with wild animals and woodlands. She later became a moon goddess, supplanting Luna; and the moon was an emblem of chastity.
Oak groves were especially sacred to her. She was praised in poetry for her strength, athletic grace, purity, distinct beauty, and hunting skill.
Despite her virginal status, Diana was also a Goddess of Fertility.
Thursday 13th - Saturday 15th August is Obon (also known as Bon); a Buddhist festival to honour dead loved ones. Celebrated through the lighting of bonfires, sacred meals, paper lanterns and dancing. See more at japan-guide.com.
By keeping traditions, Pagan communities and those in Ancient Egypt retained a sense of harmony and connection, thereby bringing balance and wellbeing into their lives.
Harmony Healing utilises the philosophies of the Ancient Egyptians to bring balance and harmony. A number of virtual courses are starting again this week, including Reyad Sekh Em (RSE) Egyptian Alchemy Healing Level 1 (which is now fully available as interactive training modules) details on Harmony Healing Virtual Events. Currently, due to Coronavirus, most events will be virtual hence distant readings and healings are proving popular. We don't recommend giving a reading or healing to another person, without first checking whether it would be welcomed.
If you are looking for spiritually enlightening activities during lockdown, Joanna offers distant intuitive readings (past life and/or aura readings) and distant 1-2-1 healings and virtual healing circles. We also have meditations available.
