He Comes, Bearing the Fruit of Conquest

Today is Theoxenia on the Treasury’s calendar.  Theoxenia is the day when Apollon returns to us from His abode in Hyperborea, where His focus was no longer upon the everyday needs of mankind, but instead set upon the many, many deeply primal aspects of creation, over which He governs.  It is widely accepted that during this time, Apollon is absent from our world, yet, as many devotee’s of the god will know, He often is most keenly present in our lives during His Hyperborean stay.

This might be due to the nature of the connection that intimate devotees share with Him.  Not only are we in constant contact with Him, what we experience of Him during the Hyperborean season especially, is well below the surface of what He shows to many others.  He is Lykeios and Telkinios, the wolf and the wind, ripping and cutting away the weak, in nature.  He is the blizzard that whites out all before you, leaving you stranded yet totally enveloped by Him.  He is also the spark that dwells in your heart and never fades, its light always there to show the way through the darkness.  And in this darkness, in this reality of the Hyperborean season, we walk a path that He has laid out– a path that leads to Him.

So, as He does each year at the height of the winter darkness, Apollon seizes the hearts of many new devotees.  These will be led through the wilderness of the Hyperborean season, and out through the gates of coming spring.  And then they will know Him in His completeness, as the light grows with the passage of time.

When He arrives at the doors of the House of Apollo, made up of the households and individuals dedicated to Him, He carries the enthusiastic and unfiltered love and adoration of those whose hearts He won in winter, who will be added to the glorious collection of souls that greet Him on Theoxenia.  For, as befits a conqueror, Apollon comes bearing the fruit of His conquest.

May we all celebrate the inclusion of our new fellows among the blessed of Apollon.  May we welcome them openly, and share what we have to share without hesitancy.  And, may we love them under the light of Apollon, as the members of His family that we all are.  For some, walking an Apollonian path may be difficult, and they may desire varying amounts of guidance.  May we be gentle in our interactions with them, remembering always, that once, many of us were conquests, too.

Hail Apollon!  Blessed Theoxenia!


Bi-Yearly Oracular Forecast

New forecast for the next eight Treasury lunar months.

Treasury of Apollon

Theoxenion through Aegletion, 2018

Theoxenion (IV) – Mar. 18-Apr. 16, 2018

(Ρ) Rho, (Σ) Sigma, (Λ) Lambda

During the month of Theoxenion, we are warned not to take any drastic action, or make any abrupt or life-altering decisions, at this time.  Though we may be eager to make changes, and those changes may even be correct in the long run, we are cautioned to wait, to stop, to hold still until the eminent event passes.  In it’s wake, opportunities will be uncovered that we may well make use of to further our own goals.

Pytheion (V) – Apr. 17-May 15, 2018

(Β) Beta, (Ω) Omega, (Χ) Khi

For the month of Pytheion, the main theme of the oracle is hope and diligence.  It begins by telling us that we are not alone in our lives and endeavors, that indeed our…

CLOSED – Last Call for Oracle

Happy Prostateria (Lunar)!  This is the second and last call for the second Hyperborean Oracle session of the season.  Two people chosen by Apollon will receive oracle.

Please use this Contact Form, and begin your comment with “Hyperborean Oracle”, and you will be added to the list for the next upcoming ritual for the Hyperborean season.

Do not send your actual inquiry in the comment.  If you are chosen, I will ask for your inquiry when I inform you of your status, via email.  All entries will go through the process of choosing by Apollon, regardless of if they are the only entry received.

I will not receive oracle request at any time other than the Hyperborean season, for the two ritual sessions in question.  Also, I am fully aware that the historical Oracle of Delphi was closed to querents during the Hyperborean season, but my services are not based upon the Delphic Oracle, or any historic Oracular site.  I am not an ancient Greek, and I form my practices at the direct instruction of Apollon Loxias.

Please follow the above instructions if you wish to be considered for the ritual.  Donations are now MANDATORY, to be given upfront before the ritual, as this is an exhausting service to my religious community.  These donations are for my time and energy, not payment for the answer/results received.  Please respect these requirements set down by Apollon.

Thank you.

Unrelenting (Devotional Acrostic Challenge)

Week 12 prompt – Destroying, Plague, Death Gods or Spirits

[For Apollon, who is the Destroyer.]

Unrepentant and unrestrained, is my Lord;
Never wavering and never faltering, is He.
Relentless is His pursuit, you will
Endure His wrath.  And as the
Last arrow pierces through, you will know true
Ecstasy; that which is unpleasant, can be understood as
Necessary.  What may be unkind, does
Tear down arbitrary walls of separation, freeing those
Imprisoned by falsehood, or by vanity.  Accept the
Nuance of His destruction; He means you no true harm, only
Glory, and your truest self as revealed, through pain.
