Hail and Welcome 2013! It Hath Arrived!

2013 Circle of 13 Candles and Potted Rosemary

In the 13th hour, the above candles were lit to celebrate the arrival of 2013.  How awesome to be alive in the year which ends in the number "13". 

I find strength and power in the number 13.  It is sacred to me.  It is sacred because it is the number of Full Moons in a year.  I embrace the number 13 and honor it.

We can thank Pope Gregory XIII for 2013.  Without his embrace of the calendar that replaced the Julian Calendar, we wouldn't be counting years that led to 2013.  Hence the name "Gregorian Calendar". Actually, there are several calendars running in the World at all times.

Our New Year is a celebration of the Civil Calendar which actually runs on an agreement the Church made for tracking Easter!  Can you believe that one?  We're all running on a calendar made to design and track Easter!  Mind-boggling isn't it?!  As a Goddess Devotee, Earth worshipper, Nature Lover, I say we remove the veil from our eyes and realize the illusion and break it!

The Witches calendar actually started on October 31, 2012.  That was our New Year's Day.  The Chinese are still running their calendar and Chinese New Year doesn't begin until Feb. 10, 2013.  Of course there's the calendar of your solar return, your birthday, so there is another calendar that's running.  Orthodox Hebrews and Muslims also follow their own calendar for religious events.  So pretty much whatever time you're following is up to you!  Of course for business sake and to keep the world from going wonky the World agreed to follow the Gregorian Calendar.  But knowledge is power.  I know now from whence this calendar comes, so for me this is year 1!

May we all be Brightly Blessed whatever calendar and time we are following.

Blessed Be!
