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.
