Telchinion through Daphneion 2018/2019
Telchinion (XII) Nov. 8 – Dec. 7, 2018
(Θ) Theta, (X) Khi, (P) Rho
For the month of Telchinion, the theme is one of the triumph of our careful planning over the winds of random change. What we have sown from months past has at last reached the point where we can observe the road ahead, and make our course corrections. However, these corrections must be made, for the many Gods have laid them out for us to see, and we ignore them at our peril. Yet must we also take the time to observe before we act, in order that we will meet with the most favorable return.
Hyperboraios (XIII) Dec. 8 – Jan. 6, 2018/2019
(M) Mu, (A) Alpha, (Σ) Sigma
What we may perceive as a setback, may in fact be the time needed to adjust to the changes we have ourselves initiated. Gradually, not immediately, and through our hard work, are how these beneficial changes will come to pass. And when our lives begin to flow in the ways we desire, know that our success is related directly to both our confidence, and our ability to strive toward our best.
Perihelios (I) Jan. 7 – Feb. 4, 2019
(M) Mu, (Γ) Gamma, (Π) Pi
Perihelios brings with it the very necessary potential for life changing hard work, which will in turn bring forth the ripened fruits of our labors. If you have allowed yourself to coast this far, know that the smooth road ends here. There are no shortcuts, only the toil. Struggle is the way of life, and after all is said and done, it is the struggle which makes us worthy of the crown.
Prostaterias (II) Feb. 5 – Mar. 6, 2019
(Σ) Sigma, (A) Alpha, (K) Kappa
During the month of Prostaterias, we must stand our ground. We must not give in to the enemies around us, though they may swell like the sea. It will be painful, but we must wrench strength from our bodies and souls, once again. The only way out is through, and the only way through is to let them crash against us, unmoving and immovable. We will be a wall, and they will be brittle and breaking.
Daphneion (III) Mar. 7 – Apr. 5, 2019
(R) Rho, (Π) Pi, (I) Iota
When we find ourselves making strides in our lives, let us not forget those we have left behind, or those who struggle to keep up. To succeed, we must rely on the love and strength of those who have chosen to traverse these paths with us. Let us truly be brethren, and let us never yield our power, or our commitment to the truth. The work ahead will be long and arduous. Hold fast; the reward is within reach.
[Aegletia, Day 7, 2018]
Theoxenion through Aegletion, 2018
Theoxenion (IV) – Mar. 18-Apr. 16, 2018
(Ρ) Rho, (Σ) Sigma, (Λ) Lambda
During the month of Theoxenion, we are warned not to take any drastic action, or make any abrupt or life-altering decisions, at this time. Though we may be eager to make changes, and those changes may even be correct in the long run, we are cautioned to wait, to stop, to hold still until the eminent event passes. In it’s wake, opportunities will be uncovered that we may well make use of to further our own goals.
Pytheion (V) – Apr. 17-May 15, 2018
(Β) Beta, (Ω) Omega, (Χ) Khi
For the month of Pytheion, the main theme of the oracle is hope and diligence. It begins by telling us that we are not alone in our lives and endeavors, that indeed our Lord Apollon is present and affecting circumstances in our lives. But of course, we know that He will help so far as we commit to helping ourselves, therefor we must remain diligent in our endeavors. As the oracle reveals times of trouble are on the way, guided by diligence and aided by hope, we can thrive in the hard times to come. And when these hard times pass, we will meet the just rewards for our labor.
Batrachion (VI) – May 16-Jun. 13, 2018
(Λ) Lambda, (O) Omicron, (Z) Zeta
In the month of Batrachion, we are warned of repercussions of our previous actions arriving, at last. This is as it should be. We must accept our past in order to cultivate a productive present, as well as a better future. Once freed from the debt incurred by our pasts, we may find unique opportunities are ahead.
Pyrophorion (VII) – Jun. 14-Jul. 13, 2018
(M) Mu, (Ψ) Psi, (Δ) Delta
For the month of Pyrophorion, we are reminded of the merits of hard work. What we do in furtherance of our goals must be infused with our deepest, most profound enthusiasm, and so, we must also manifest this enthusiasm by way of the effort we put into our projects. But to balance our hard work, we must also be cunning, knowing when to apply the most pressure, in order to coax forth the desired outcome. The oracle also tells us that there is no getting out of the work, no matter which of the Theoi we might ask.
Karneion (VIII) – Jul. 14-Aug. 11, 2018
(Y) Upsilon, (E) Epsilon, (K) Kappa
The month of Karneion will bring with it the potential to enter into new and fruitful partnerships. Those whom we connect with on a spiritual, emotional, or physical level during this time, are likely to help feed and nurture our authentic selves, and the work which we are set to accomplish. That which these new partnerships produce will be well formed, indeed. The rightness of this oracle may prove to deter us from its completion, though we should know that attempts to avoid what is set in motion may result in unfavorable experiences.
Agetoreios (IX) – Aug. 12-Sep. 9, 2018
(Δ) Delta, (Z) Zeta, (T) Tau
During the month of Agetoreios we are told to be mindful of our timing. If we wish to alter our course, breaking away from long established traditions, customs, or friendships, it is suggested that we very carefully plan to avoid conflict. Bitterness and resentment between former associates only poisons the air between them. So, go with grace, but know that this parting is in many ways, unavoidable.
Lykeion (X) – Sep. 10-Oct. 9, 2018
(B) Beta, (H) Eta, (Ξ) Xi
For the intercalary month of Lykeion, we are reminded that when the time comes to move on, we should do just that. Apollon will assist us in letting go of what we once expected, while the truth in our hearts is overseen by the Gods. We must be honest with ourselves, as well as the Gods. Situations that do not work are not worth our time, and trying too hard to salvage them will only harm us in the long run.
Aegletion (XI) – Oct. 10-Nov. 7, 2018
(Ξ) Xi, (Y) Upsilon, (Δ) Delta
In the month of Aegletion, we are reminded that low quality material is not likely to produce high quality results. If it isn’t working, try something new. That which we choose to turn toward is more likely to lead us to the ends we seek. We need to recognize when it is best to exercise our will, choosing better for ourselves, and those we love.
Telchinion through Daphneion 2017/2018
Telchinion (XII) Oct. 20 – Nov. 18, 2017
(T) Tau, (Δ) Delta, (I) Iota
During the month of Telchinion, there is the warning of separation for one’s own betterment. If you now socialize with, or otherwise associate with individuals who do not share your own ethic of hard work and accountability, then you are better off without them. The Gods and circumstances will conspire to fulfill this promise, if you are unwilling to do it yourself. Things that may hold you back from taking this action may be tradition or customs, cherished and long-standing in your circle, but you must go your own way. Tradition is useless if you stagnate upon it’s corpse. What comes next will be determined by your tenacity.
Hyperboraios (XIII) Nov. 19 – Dec. 18, 2017
(N) Nu, (Θ) Theta, (Π) Pi
The month of Hyperboraios portends a great blessing to be bestowed by the Gods. It will make your life more difficult. This is not an easy blessing to bear, but the Divine Ones walk beside you, guiding and showing the way. You must remain focused, and stay upon the path They have laid out for you. Any attempt to set aside Their gift will result only in loss, pain and hardship. So struggle forward, and you will earn the righteous rewards for your efforts.
Perihelios (I) Dec. 19 – Jan. 17, 2017/2018
(K) Kappa, (M) Mu, (Δ) Delta
A great wave of motion will toss you within its twirling winds, during the month of Perihelios. It will sweep you up, and affect all that you have done up to this point. Do not fight change. Change is the constant. It will grind you down like a weathered stone if you try. And yet, through this change, it is possible to forge ahead on your journey, resting in far off places you never would have known had the great wind not taken you. Change is harrowing, but also a blessing in disguise. Do your work, and the timing for ascent out of the maelstrom with reveal itself to you. Strike then, with force, and be released.
Prostaterias (II) Jan. 18 – Feb. 15, 2018
(T) Tau, (A) Alpha, (Ψ) Psi
During the month of Prostaterias, you will be called upon to release someone (or something– this could easily pertain to a project you have worked on for many months or years– something so dear to you, it is as a child parted from its mother’s arms) into the harsh world, where they may face struggles and criticisms that you can not shield them from. It must happen for the growth of the one you hold dear. Letting them (or it) go now will result in the most favorable outcome. To attempt to withhold them (or it) will likely be disastrous in the long term, though it may assuage your short term fears. The Gods are watching, and have concurred in this oracle.
Daphneion (III) Feb. 16 – Mar. 17, 2018
(O) Omicron, (Φ) Phi, (Ξ) Xi
In the month of Daphneion, we receive a warning. What we give to the Universe comes back to us. Our actions have consequence. When we receive the fruit of our labors, or our words, we must take full responsibility. The Gods are not at fault for what we do and say, and the criticisms or troubles we reap. If we wish to receive the good, we must first cultivate the good in ourselves, so we may send it forth to generate the profits we seek. If we do not, or we do nothing, we can not expect a prize fruit from a tree untended.
[Aegletia, Day 7, 2017]
Theoxenion through Aegletion, 2017
Theoxenion (IV) – Mar. 29-Apr. 26, 2017
(E) Epsilon, (Γ) Gamma, (Z) Zeta
In the month of Theoxenion, seeds which were sown in months past will come to bear fruit, and partnerships will coalesce into a cohesive and formidable whole. Spiritually, this could mean joining with a new Deity, or delving into a previously unexplored relationship or mode of worship, or deepening a relationship with a Deity you already know, love or serve. This new found cohesion will also come just in time for a great hardship, or test, which will shake loose the foundations of which we have become accustomed. Don’t fight against it. Do not be ridgid, or you will crumble into dust, like a pillar that believes it is strong, but in truth, is only as strong as the ground beneath it.
Pytheion (V) – Apr. 27-May 25, 2017
(Z) Zeta, (Ψ) Psi, (Ξ) Xi
In the month of Pytheion, the trial continues. But here is where we make our stand, cutting from our lives all that will no longer serve a purpose, all that hinders our growth, all that is no longer the truth of our hearts, all that no longer resonates with our lives and goals as we have determined them, and all for which progress is stagnant. Letting go will not be easy. We will want to hold onto the familiar, but the outcome can only be delayed, not changed. These things are leaving. This is fact. The forces that shall bring about the change are already in motion.
Batrachion (VI) – May 26-Jun. 24, 2017
(I) Iota, (O) Omicron, (Π) Pi
In the month of Batrachion, our rewards will be directly proportional to our efforts. While this is true at all other times, it is especially relevant to remember during this month. Only that which you have cultivated will mature, physically and spiritually. If you set a goal, work toward it a little at a time, be gradual with your efforts and this will help you to stay the course. In Divine relationships, kharis is a reciprocal obligation. You can not receive if you have not contributed. For your efforts, you will receive the prize of personal satisfaction, in addition to what rewards the Gods see fit to bestow. Never cease your striving, and you will never know a time without gain.
Pyrophorion (VII) – Jun. 25-Jul. 23, 2017
(Ω) Omega, (E) Epsilon, (Γ) Gamma
The month of Pyrophorion will bring discord to all manner of relationships, particularly, human relationships. When cultivating good will with our loved ones, we should try not to grasp at unripened fruits. Do not prod at a sensitive area or wound, lest your hand be bitten. Do not demand action or answers before it/they are ready to be given. However, for all our trying, sometimes the circumstances will not allow us the proper time to wait. In these instances, know that there will be a price to pay for moving things along before their natural time, whether the movement itself was intended. The situation should even out as the month draws to a close, and you are made aware of a previously unseen bounty.
Karneion (VIII) – Jul. 24-Aug. 21, 2017
(I) Iota, (K) Kappa, (Z) Zeta
The month of Karneion has the potential to bring crisis into our lives. The only way to see ourselves, and our families, through is to continue trudging forward. The path will be laden with obstacles, but we must remain surefooted. Keep working, and work hard. Keep building, and build high. For every tower that falls, a new one must be erected in its place. You are the weathered river stone, smooth to the currents of hardship. Don’t fight the river, though the river may insist on fighting you.
Agetoreios (IX) – Aug. 22-Sep. 20, 2017
(X) Khi, (A) Alpha, (Π) Pi
The month of Agetoreios brings with it a turn in fortune. After several months of inexplicable hardship, at last, we begin to see the true rewards of our labors. We will see our goals clearly, and obstacles that hindered us before will be swept aside, either by our hands or by Another. These goals are mainly physical in nature, and they will be attained through the maintenance of kharis with our Gods, especially Apollon. Although, in a spiritual sense, kharis itself may be the attainable goal. Respect the Gods, respect yourself, and respect the path, even the troubles which came before, because they have tempered you into a fine metal, and soon, a golden mantle will be placed upon your shoulders. Rejoice, yet understand that with it comes deeper responsibility.
Aegletion (XI) – Sep. 21-Oct. 19, 2017
(Γ) Gamma, (N) Nu, (M) Mu
In the month of Aegletion, an unexpected gift will yield both favorable and unfavorable surprises. Like a double-edged blade or a tool with two purposes, it cuts the stalks for harvest, but also cuts the enemy in battle. And now is the time to fight, for yourself, for your desires, and for the Gods. They have set this path upon you, and you upon this path, for only you will bring it, and Their Will, to its completion. You will have all that you need to fulfill this oracle when the time comes, for the Earth is rich and provides much, so never shirk your destiny.
Aegletion through Daphneion 2016/2017
Aegletion (XI) Oct. 2 – Oct. 30, 2016
(Μ) Mu, (Ο) Omicron, (Ζ) Zeta
Aegletion looks to be a difficult month, one which compels us to lay strong foundations to rest upon for the coming year. All that we do has its purpose, and we will reap what we sow. But, for the trials ahead, it may be best for us to stockpile our energies for the time when they will be most effective. When we are in the midst of the turmoil is not the proper time to set our will against it.
Telchinion (XII) Oct. 31 – Nov. 29, 2016
(Ρ) Rho, (Θ) Theta, (Ξ) Xi
In Telchinion, we may wish to bide our time. It is fruitless to try to force action, especially of others, at this time. If they do not come around to your position, know that the Gods are with you and will support your endeavors. Do not become bogged down by the irreverence or bad attitudes of the people around you. There is a time for everything, and when it comes, with the help of the Gods, you will be ready.
Hyperboraios (XIII) Nov. 30 – Dec. 29, 2016
(Λ) Lambda, (Ω) Omega, (Ε) Epsilon
In Hyperboraios, things may be more than what they seem. There will be difficulties, but it is up to us to see what positive effects are brought about by change. We will not want to see these things, for we will prefer to hold onto the status quo. We may also only see the negative impact of change, instead of acknowledging the great benefit of unnecessary barriers crumbling to the ground. We must not leap to ‘fix’ things too quickly, lest we undermine the reordering which is necessary. We will not enjoy this time, and yet, what is right is right.
Perihelios (I) Dec. 30 – Jan. 28, 2016/2017
(Ζ) Zeta, (Ι) Iota, (Ο) Omicron
Perihelios has the potential to be a frustrating month, but if we remain steadfast, we may achieve our goals. Keep a check on your temper, never stop working for what you want, and know that the fruits of your labors will be ripe and sweet when you remember to take the proper care.
Prostaterias (II) Jan. 29 – Feb. 26, 2017
(N) Nu, (Ω) Omega, (M) Mu
In Prostaterias, harsh truths will be spoken, but they are necessary. Uncomfortable words will gather on your tongue, and you will afflict loved ones and strangers alike. Do not pretend, and do not cloud your meaning behind empty platitudes. Truth is the gift of Apollon, meant to be spread amongst deserving ears. This may make for a hard road in the immediate aftermath, but when the dust clears, the way forward will be unmistakable.
Daphneion (III) Feb. 27 – Mar. 28, 2017
(Z) Zeta, (Π) Pi, (Χ) Khi
Daphneion seems to be when the trials of the previous months come to a head in success. At this time, we will ride the waves of fruition, being brought ashore by the tide. Keep your head low, avoiding all controversy, surfacing only to complete your tasks and to claim hard-won rewards. The end is propitious, and to be savored.
[Aegletia, Day 7, 2016]
