Oct 31 – Nov 6 Mid-Autumn / Day of the Dead / Hallowmas – Festival marking the transformation of life to death, the end of the agricultural year, departure of migrating and hibernating animals, and decay and death of vegetal and animal life.

Nov 7 – 9 Feast of Divine Justice – Source of just law, honoring Goddess-God as Maat-Thoth (Egyptian); Goddess as Themis (Greek), Justice (Christian), and God as Forseti (Norse).

Nov 8 –  Seven Holy Archangels Day (Orthodox Christian).  The seven original Archangels to the Eastern Orthodox Church are:  Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel, Raguel, Sariel, and the fallen Lucifer.  Lucifer lost his place to another Archangel but the various lists can’t make their minds up about the name of the new archangel.  Baracael, Ieadiel, Sealtiel, Peliel, and Gamael are some of the possibilities.  The Book of Enoch says:  The big four plus Raguel, Sariel, and Jerahmeel, while from other apocryphal sources we get the variant names Izidkiel, Hanael, and Kepharel instead of the last three.

Nov 11 Feast of Dionysus – Greek God whom Yeshua was “connected to” as the Cosmic Gnosis.
