God and Goddess of the Week !

Good Morning CUPWA students, members and friends !

Seeing how we are getting ready to celebrate Yule and the birth of our *Sun* and where each passing day after that will remain light longer, I thought it appropriate to post about the Greek God of Darkness and the Greek Goddess of Daylight.
We are approaching the "Light Half" of the year and even though Yule is considered to be a Lesser Sabbat, it is still a rather important one and an important acknowledgement. After all, we would not know the Light without the Dark (and vice versa). It will be at the Summer Solstice when we shall acknowledge the "Dark Half" of the year and when the days become darker longer.

All CUPWA students who are under the 1st Degree Lesson Plan at CUPWA will receive extra credit for any research done on either of these Deities. If you have any further questions concerning this, please contact Willow.

Don't forget !!!! Tonight is the LUNAR ECLIPSE. It begins at 1:42 am. It will last approximately 72 minutes ! Don't miss it !!

I would like to take this time to personally tell all of you .. that I do hope that you all have a grand day today , a beautiful week , a warm and memorable Yule and Solstice .. a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanza ! May the Gods be with you now and always.

Blessed Be,
Rain Dove
