Before studying the calendar below, we invite you to be come acquainted with our basic concepts and beliefs: https://reginite.com/introduction-to-our-basic-beliefs/
(To go straight to the calendar, scroll down to the Sacred Season of Spring)
Our Reginite liturgical calendar, which may be used in conjunction with a Divine Masculine Calendar such as Christian or Jewish, is comprised of thirteen months and five Seasons. Each Season is considered sacred because of it’s inherent Divine Feminine Mystery.
Our year begins with the Reginite Eastre, which celebrates the Holy Daughter, Zoe Sophia/the Shekinah as the Holy Soul of the World or World Soul.
(Both Sophia and the Shekinah share a very similar Mythos. Many believe Them to be One and the Same Being, others do not. We leave that up to our devotees to decide for themselves. Scroll down to the Shekinah plays another very important role: http://www.universalkabbalah.net/Shekinah ..)
She is our Pure Dove of Peace and the Lily of the World. Our day begins at Dawn, which is the time of the Holy Daughter. (For those who are Christian, this feast day does not take the place of the Christian Easter. As the Divine Son raises us to the Father, the Holy Daughter restores us to Our Heavenly Mother.)
We use a different Cardinal/Elemental directional systems. Our system is: East/Water; South/Fire; West/Earth and North/Air.
Times of Day:
Dawn is the Time of the Holy Daughter, Zoe Sophia.
Noontide is the Time of the Heavenly Mother, Mari Sophia,
Twilight (Evensong/Vespers) is the time of the Great Mother, Sige Mysteria.
As with the Archangels, each day is ruled over by one of the Seven Janae of Sophia. (For the days of the Archangels, please see: https://reginite.com/the-correspondences-of-the-seven-archangels-2/).
