The new lunar cycle has begun

It is the second day of the new lunar cycle which is lunar tree cycle of Muin/Vine. In my Seasons of the Witch datebook this morning it is

noted that there are Major magickal energies for doing spells or rites for Justice. The correspondences are the Element of Air; the color

white; the tarot card Justice and the rune Twaz. A little verse is also written out on today's page:

"White winged Goddess, Daughter of Night
                                                     Powerful judge of strong and right
                                                       Sweet Nemesis of my enemy be
                                                 Restore what has been taken from me."

Also this is season of the Eleusinian Mysteries..... these are one of the greatest rituals of the ancient world and was celebrated annually in Greece at the small town of Eleusis near Athens. This a part of the mystery religion of Demeter and Persphone and drew thousands of participants each
year. Perhaps as many as a million people were initiated into the mysteries over hundreds of years, in ceremonies that would last over many days during the period of the autumnal equinox. What happened at those initiations? We do not know. The ceremonies were secret, and none of the hundreds of thousands of initiates ever broke the vow.
