The Déanic Calendar consists of 13 Months and five Sacred Seasons. It is based upon the Madrian/Filianic Calendar and has been adapted for Deanic Christianity. (3)
The Reginite Calendar of Our Mother God is to be used alongside or in conjunction with the Christian liturgical calendar of your denomination.
Here you will find that each day is named after one of the Seven Sacred Symbols using the French ‘di’ for day (pronounced dee).
Please note that our Cardinal Directional system is different than that of other spiritual Traditions.
The Divine Feminine liturgical year begins with Spring and the month of Columbina. Our day begins at Dawn.
Dawn and Midnight are the symbolic times of the Holy Daughter, known, in our Tradition, as Jana Sophia. (Pronounced Yah-nah, a Roman name which means Gateway and Moon.) This is Lower or Daughter Sophia, also known as Zoe/Sophia). (Please see: Who is the Deanic Christian Sophia? link coming soon.)
Noontime is symbolic of Our Celestial/Heavenly Mother, known in our Tradition as Mari Sophia. (Mar-ee. Mar as in Mars). Mari is an ancient name meaning both Mother Sea and Mother Queen. It is also the Breton form of Mary. Mari Sophia is the Deanic Christian Form of Higher or Mother Sophia, also known as Pistis, which means Faith and Aletheia, which means Truth.
The Twilight and the Darkest Hour before the Dawn is symbolic of the Great Mother/Absolute Deity known in our Tradition as Mysteria Sige, (from the Valentinian Gnostic system.) We use the pronunciation Sy-gee.
Each season is sacred to us as it represents and inherent Mystery of Dea, Our Divine Mother God.

The Hamsa is an ancient, pre-Judaic, sacred symbol of the Goddess, although many think of it as simply a good luck charm.
It became sacred to the three main Abrahamic religions. In Judaism, it is known as the Hand of Miriam; in Islam, it is the Hand of Fatima and in Christianity, it is known as the Hand of Mary. In the modern era, it is becoming known as the Hand of Sophia. The Hand represents Her Protection and Presence.
