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.

Bi-Yearly Oracular Forecast

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.

The House of Lions

The House is full of lions;

ferocious and cunning and sleek

They lounge in rooms of plenty,

never wanting for fresh meat

 

Their coats and manes shine, splendid,

with the allure of those untouchable

And they are not offended,

so long as you’re unreachable

 

But, step foot inside their House,

and you will know them, surely

Not unlike the timid mouse,

you’ll die, or heed this warning

 

The House is full of lions;

savage and gentle and sweet

They are My finest weapons,

and against them none shall compete

Plans

Apollon looks down on the world from a place in the future.  His eyes see how human lives will be in tens of years, or more… or less.  Always scanning, is He, for attempts to derail His plans, along with minor accidents of Fate.

He has plans.  They all do.  Zeus, the Father, especially.  His plans are paramount. And so, the Far-shooter interrogates every moment that will ever be.  Each in its time.  Each in its proper place.

Why?

Why not?

Because He can.  Because the Power is His.  Because He, and Wise Zeus, and the many Gods and Goddesses, are ready to act.  Let us now be ready, to stand in this world, to let Them fill us in this world, to be the way toward Their just reclamation of this world.

In the future, from His Throne of Light, what does Apollon see?  We can not know our future.  Not until it is today.  So, what will we make of today?  How will we spend each potential moment?

I know not what you will do.  But I will live in honor of Him, to the very end of my days.
