Leto is the mother of Artemis and Apollon, Pythian Apollon talks about his role as the slayer of the Python, Zeus and Hermes, most people know, and the Dioscuri were two brothers. I hope that you have a good one and sorry for the short post.

This one is very hard to do, given that we live in a society that we can’t help but to find something wrong with someone. A fault! It could be anything from weight to not doing well in school no matter how hard that person tries. Finding fault is something that we gained over time, something that became part of our society. But deciding not to point out fault, means that you leave yourself unable to be attacked. It also keeps the person from feeling low about themselves.
Finally, after twenties years of fighting for their rights, YSEE was finally informed that they are considered a ‘Known Religion’ joining 6 others. This is a huge win for YSEE and I’m excited that this has finally happened. The Greek State has been nothing but nasty to the Hellenists and now there has been a move forward. Here’s the link below so that you can read it and congrads all pagans in Greece.
Praise the good. What does that mean? Well, it means that when someone does good you praise them. You tell them that they’ve done good. When you do that then they are more likely to continue to do good. Not praising them makes them think that what their doing isn’t good enough and that’s never a good thing.
When the sun goes down I will note this holiday. There’s no information about this holiday, modern followers have to invent their own. Have a good one.
When the sun goes down the sacrifices to the Levcaspis takes place. I really don’t have any information about this other than it was a really minor festival that has hardly any written record about, but we do know that it was celebrated. Have a good one.
When the sun goes down I will be celebrating Olympia which is in honor of Zeus. Have a good one.
When the sun goes down I will be honoring the goddess Artemis on this night. Mounikhia is one of several holidays that are connected to the goddess Artemis. I hope that you all have a good one.
