Saint Sophia's Feast Day-The Three Fates
Goddess Sophia and her three daughter-The Three Fates-Hope, Charity and Faith came to me in a dream on Saturday. I looked up when her feast day was and it is this Wednesday! I am often visited in my dreams by spirits and deities and I respect and honor these messages dearly and vigilantly. I am holding a feast day vigil in honor of her and her three daughter's on the 17th.
Faith, Hope, and Charity are the three daughters of Sophia, Mother of Jehovah and Goddess of wisdom. They are also known as The Three fates, The Three Graces, and Pistis, Elpis, and Agape, among many other names. During the transition from Pagan Rome to Christian Rome these Goddesses were adapted into martyrdom and thus became saints.
Serving the Fates can bring you great blessings and provide powerful allies. They are known by many names in many cultures. Sors Istennok, "the destiny Goddesses", in Hungarian. The Parcae, "those who spare", in Latin. The Moirae; Clotho the spinner, Lachesis the disposer of lots, and Atropos the inevitable, in Greek. They are known as Urdh, Verdandi, and Skuld in Old Norse.
They are also known as Aglia (radiant), Euphrosyne (joy), and Thalia (flowering) who are companions of Aphrodite. When angered, they are the furies Alecto, Tisiphone, and Magaera. Or simply The Maiden, Mother, and Crone.
In Greek mythology, they are called the three goddesses of joy, charm, and beauty. The daughters of the god Zeus and the nymph Eurynome, they were named Aglaia (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Good Cheer). The Graces presided over banquets, dances, and all other pleasurable social events, and brought joy and goodwill to both gods and mortals. They were the special attendants of the divinities of love, Aphrodite and Eros, and together with companions, the Muses, they sang to the gods on Mount Olympus, and danced to beautiful music that the god Apollo made upon his lyre. In some legends Aglaia was wed to Hephaestus, the craftsman among the gods. Their marriage explains the traditional association of the Graces with the arts; like the Muses, they were believed to endow artists and poets with the ability to create beautiful works of art. The Graces were rarely treated as individuals, but always together as a kind of triple embodiment of grace and beauty. In art they are usually represented as lithe young maidens, dancing in a circle.
"Fate" is from the latin word "fatum", meaning "a divine utterance".
Working with the fates is not about working with yet another deity, it is about honoring the biggest power of all, the cosmos. This causes the Fate's to smile upon you and bless you with fortune. It is about accepting the cosmos' ebb and flow around you, seeing their is meaning in everything and that we are connected to everything. They are here to teach us to give, only then we will receive. Honor them and they will bestow fortune and grace upon you. Use this oil for transforming your life and for manifesting your goals and dreams!
