The Sun Wheel

Today marks the first day of the SunWheel. The Deanic SunWheel, created by ArchMatrona Georgia Cobb of the Lady of Light Chantry, is the Deanic version of the advent wreath, a custom which pre-dated Christianity. Instructions and links may be found here: https://deanic.com/the-sun-wheel/.

Calling All Translators:

The Society for Filianic Studies (http://www.filianicstudies.org/) is currently seeking volunteer translators to render the Clear Recital and associated texts into additional languages. Project teams have already been formed, at varying levels of activity and progress, for Spanish, Dutch, and Greek. All of these teams would benefit from additional participants and it is desired to form new teams for as many languages as possible. No prior translation experience is necessary.
“The project’s editor—a former freelance translator—supports all of the language teams by providing a computer-assisted ‘rough draft’ translation as a basis for the work. By eliminating a lot of the rote, bulk translation in this way, volunteers are able to focus on issues of word choice and style that require the sensitivities of a native speaker (or a speaker very close to native-level fluency). The editor also handles all ‘back end’ issues of typesetting and readying the completed translations for publication and distribution. With this workflow, the time commitment demanded of volunteers is kept to a minimum. Translators work at their own pace as they are willing and able to contribute, with no rush or arbitrary deadlines. Collaboration is usually through Google Docs, but other arrangements can be made if needed.

“Those interested in participating should contact the editor directly at racemochridhe@gmail.com“Thank you.

The Seven Sophias
There is a very interesting article to be found here: https://monasticmatrix.osu.edu/commentaria/transformations-sophia in which the Seven Forms of Sophia are mentioned.
For Sophian Deanists, I propose an alternate Seven Sophias:
1) The Gnostic Sophia
2) The Holy Spirit
3) The Virgin Mary
4) Lady Philosophy, Mother of the Seven Liberal Arts
5) The Goddess Natura
6) The World Soul/Holy Soul of the World
7) The Deanic Sophia.
