We are obviously extremely late in getting this posted today, but better late than never, right? First, an announcement: The Treasury Newsletter is on hold until further notice, as our editor has a lot going on right now and not enough spare time to focus on it. When she is ready, we’ll see about resuming the Newsletter. Until then, each new month’s calendar will be posted separately, so no one will miss it, if they are looking for it. So, with that, Blessed Noumenia, everyone! ❤
**Oracular Forecast – Seventh Year of the Treasury – Agetoreios (IX), 2019
Agetoreios (IX) – Aug. 31-Sep. 28, 2019
(Ξ) Xi, (P) Rho, (Π) Pi
We find ourselves waiting in Agetoreios, for that which we have long hoped for, but, is what we have hoped for truly what is best? If we have waited so long, why has our idleness not been rewarded? Perhaps it is time to cease waiting, for what is not ready, may never be ready for us. Our destiny awaits, regardless. When we accept this, the goal shall become tangible.
**All Oracular Forecasts are divined twice a year, on Aegletia 7, and Ktistêsia.
I hope this month finds you well and if it doesn’t, may Apollo Physician aid you to your wellness. This month’s newsletter touches on justice, pride, and discipline and includes two lovely contributions from our very own Columbine.
We appreciate all contributions and if you have an idea you’d like to share, as long as it’s somewhere between 80 and 350 words, we can put it in the newsletter. Poetry, prayers, thoughts on the Delphic Maxims, theology, stories, and opinions are all welcome. Additionally, if you have announcements, prayer requests, or life changes you are willing to share, I can add those as well. And, as always, feel free to distribute as widely as you feel appropriate.
I wish I could tell you that I was doing something intense or important when I was supposed to be writing the newsletter, but in the spirit of our Lord Apollon who speaks the truth, I was playing video games and watching My Little Ponies with my kids. That said, a late newsletter is better than no newsletter at all and I hope you enjoy this month’s offering.
A couple words of business:
Your contributions really help! Prayers, musings, poetry, opinions, and theology are all welcome. Works can be between 80 and 350 words with the ideal range being between 200-250 words.
And, as always, feel free to distribute as widely as you feel appropriate.
We’ve had a busy Noumenia weekend with school wrapping up and Beltaine/Thargelia celebrations and your esteemed (I hope) editor is also easily distracted by shiny objects. I do hope you’ll forgive me for the lateness of our newsletter this month and I will do my best to ensure next month’s gets out on time.
Special thanks to Zoe for the statement against racism, to Lykiea for the use of her painting of Athena Nashville, and to you, as always, for reading.
This is a Special Edition of our newsletter and a response to some… stuff going on in our community. I have done my best as a white person to present anti-racism work in a way that doesn’t create more emotional labor for people of color. To that end, most of the content is directed toward people who have white privilege as a way to encourage this work both internally and externally. Feel free to share with whomever needs to shed a little light on their words and actions around white supremacy and, my dear and beloved friends, also feel free to call me out if I’ve made any mistakes. I’m still learning and I offer these words in the greatest humility and willingness to shed additional light on my own missteps.
Apollon lend you sufficient moxy to dismantle systemic racism.
The Treasury of Apollon’s second issue of Phosphorus has arrived! Thanks so much for reading, and or subscribing! We really enjoy what we do, and knowing that it is well-received is the best encouragement we can ever have, in return. We will attempt to have each month’s newsletter posted here (as well as sent out to subscribers) on the day before each Noumenia. Hence why we’re posting today instead of tomorrow.
So, Happy Deipnon for today, and a very Happy Noumenia of Theoxenion, and a Blessed Theoxenia for tomorrow!
Hello, everyone! The Treasury of Apollon has just begun working on a, perhaps, monthly newsletter that we will distribute to our Sisterhood, and to anyone else who may wish to receive it. The first issue of ‘Phosphorus’ is kind of an experiment, so we can decide how we want it to look, and what we want to express.
