Reminder: Remainder of April Festivals and Aset of Pharos

Here are the festivals for the rest of the month of April.

1 Shomu/Pachons/April
21-Sacred Festival of Aset of Pharos (Isis Pharia)
25 of April-Sacrifice to Aset of Pharos (Isis Pharia)/Sacrum Phariae and Serapia
26-Festival of Roses/Rhodophoria
26 of April-Harvest Festival

Today is the Sacred Festival of Aset of the Pharos Lighthouse (Isis Pharia). I see the analogy here as the Lighthouse guiding ship through troubled waters, dispelling the darkness and showing the way with the brightest of lights.

I see Her as Fiercely Bright here. I see Her as a goddess who guides, who leads, who nurtures and provides, when asked.

I see the brightest of stars over the waters. I see Her ships filled with offerings on the waves–filled with offerings of bread, milk, water, meat, vegetables and fruits. I see the tresses of the ships adorned with roses–bright red, yellow and blue.

I see Her festival as a Goddess who weaves, who commands all things. She is the Goddess who knows Her spells and weaves them well. For the devotees. For Her Shemsu. For Her son and husband. For Herself.

I see the Lady of the Rivers, the Goddess of the Rains and the Lady of the Primordial Ocean as the Goddess invoked here. And I see Isis, Goddess of the Sea.

I see the Brightest of Lights and the Brightest of Stars. I see the Mourner and the Widow as She searches for Her husband.

Most of all, I see a fiercely bright, radiant Lady who stands with Her arms out, blessing those who leave offerings and call Her name.
