FYI - "The Month in Myth"


The third month of the year is sacred to Mars, the god of war. Mars usually traveled with his two sons, Deimos and Phobos, and still does to this day, as they are the names of the two moons which circle mars. March 1st is the birthday of Mars, was the Roman New Year's Day, and also heralded the beginning of spring.

March 15th is called 'The Ides of March.' This date is famous for being the day on which Julius Caesar was assassinated in 44 B.C.E. It is also the holy day of Rhea, Greek goddess of the earth, mother of Zeus and an aspect of the Great Mother. Howard Phillips Lovecraft died on March 15th, 1937.

The Vernal Equinox falls on March 20th, when the day and night are of equal length. For the next few months, each day will last a little longer and spring--life reborn-- will be upon the land.
