Quando in un bosco ne percepisci la bellezza e diventi tutt'uno con il bosco, allora, intuitivamente, sei in armonia e in pace con le Dee e con gli Dei. Essi sono parte della nostra vera natura, la nostra Natura Profonda, e quando siamo separati dalla nostra vera natura, viviamo nella paura. Percepire questa normalità vuol dire dare un senso reale al vivere che è insito in tutte le cose.

Intraprendere la Via Romana al Divino significa iniziare un percorso di risveglio: praticando l'attenzione e la consapevolezza continua ci incamminiamo lungo una strada sapendo che ciò che conta è il cammino per sè più che la destinazione.

When you, entering a forest, perceive the beauty of the forest and you feel to be in a complete harmony with it, then, intuitively, you are in peace with the Deities. They are an essential part of our real nature, our Deep Nature, and when we are separated by our real nature we live in the fear. Perceiving such normality means giving a real sense to our lives.

Undertaking the Roman Via to the Deities implies a path to awakening: with the practice of continuing consciousness and awareness we undertake our walking knowing that taking the path is more important than the destination itself

Precatio to Juno

June is a month entirely devoted to the female polarity sacralized by the Goddess Juno (Jupiter's female polarity). On June 2nd the Roman Matronae invoke Iuno Regina to obtain peace, health and benefits for the Roman Community. The Precatio Iunoni Reginae is part of the ancient public cults and rites. Today we have only private (individuals and familiy rites) and community cults: so I've tried to adapt the ancient Precation to a modern use. It must be made only by married women (matres familiae) - actually in a very broad sense being part of a family - to which a libatio can follow.

"Roman People" may mean today the community of Cultores of the Traditional Roman Religion as a whole.
"Quirites" may mean in particular those making activities related to the study, development and diffusion of cults and rites of the Traditional Roman Religion.
 "Res Publica" may mean those comunnities of Cultores and Families structured and organized around traditional cults and rites.


Precatio Iunoni Reginae

Iuno Regina, ast quid est quod melius siet p. R. Quiritibus
nos matres familiae, nuptae genibus nixae
te uti faxis, precamur, oramus obsecramusque
uti tu imperium maiestatemque p. R. Quiritium duelli domique auxis,
incolumitatem sempiternam uictoriam, ualetudinem populo Romano Quiritibus duis faueasque populo Romano, remque publicam p. R. Quiritium saluam serues maioremque faxis,
uti sies uolens propitia populo Romano Quiritibus, nobis domibus familiis.

Haec matres familias populi Romani
Quiritium nuptae genibus nixae, precamur, oramus obsecramusque


Juno Regina, if there is any better fortune that may attend the Roman people, the Quirites, 
we mistresses of households of the Roman people, the Quirites, married women on bended knee, 
pray that you bring it about, we beg and beseech that you increase the power and majesty of the Roman people, the Quirites in war and peace; 
that you may grant eternal safety, victory and health to the Roman people, the Quirites; 
and that you may protect the Roman people, the Quirites; 
and that you may keep safe and make greater the state community of the Roman people, the Quirites; 
and that you may be favourable and propitious to the Roman people, the Quirites, to us, to our houses, to our households. 
These are the things that we mistresses of households of the Roman people, the Quirites, married women on bended knee, pray, beg, and beseech.
