Kala Noumenia!

It’s the Noumenia today, and tonight the first silver of Selene’s light reappears in the sky. If you are able, and you did not do it yesterday on Hekate’s Deiphon, today would be a good day to clean your house and focus on renewing your relationships with your household Gods and your family.

This particular lunar month was known as Elaphebolion in Athens, so named after the Elaphebolia, a festival of Artemis, which is next Tuesday this year, the 15th. This festival celebrates Artemis as the huntress of deer, and in fact means “Deer-Slayer”.  Honey-cakes in the shape of stags were offered to Her on this day.
