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

April - Venus

April is a month enterely dedicated to the Nature and to the Nature's Beauty. Many Goddesses are celebrated during this month, above all Venus.

Venus is a very complex and difficult Divne Force: some additional details can be found in this post and in this post.

Venus is the sacralization of Beauty: in particular she is "The Revealed and Disclosed Beauty".

Her sacred trees and plants are: cherry tree, myrtle, daisy, rose, lime and apple tree.
Her sacred animals are: stork, sparrow, frog, dolphin, swan, hare, turtle and dove.

A Venus' fundamental symbol is the shell.

Venus is also identified as:
  • Venere Pandemia: physical love
  • Venere Urania: spiritual love
  • Venere Murcia: she-mitigating
  • Venere Verticordia: passion

Venus is symbolized by a cone dark stone.

Other important Gods/Goddesses celebrated in April are:
  • Ceres: "the nuorishing land". She is also named "Flavia" (blonde, clear), "frugifera" (giving fruits), she is the sacred symbol of corn cultivation. Spike, poppy, pig and heifer are sacred to Ceres.
  • Tellus: the Earth, symbol of stability and solidity (Tellus Stabilita), she-generating energy. She is represented surrounded by children. Sacred animal: veal
  • Pale: ancient Goddess of pastures and herds.
  • Robigo: "Rust". Negative God provoking inactivity and many plant, animal and human deseases.
  • Flora: Goddess of Flowers. She is the symbol of spring. Seeds and honey are sacred to Flora. She is represented by a wicker basket full of flowers she will put on trees.

It is possible to provide some brief and simple considerations about a deeper meaning and sense of the cult and symbology of Venus.
Venus represents the Generating Force hidden inside the Nature, in particular the generating and purificating force of Water. It is important ot note that the letter "V" as initial of her name and the symbol of Venus are linked to the hermetic symbol of Water however connected to the feminine sexuality. The purificating power of Water-Venus is also evidenced by the Goddess' nudity: I will discuss this complex topic in another post.
Venus contains in the same time Life and Death: she is defined also "mortis et vitae locus". 
Venus symbolizes, in hermetic terms, the passivity, contraction, the Original Primigenial Force, the "Wet Path", "the Green Path", copper, sexuality, the lumbar region.

Venus is also somehow linked to the secret name of Rome.

 The roman grafito in Pompeii
 The importance of the cult of Venus in Rome is extremely well known and the realtion between the name of Rome and Venus is also evidenced by the famous grafito in Pompeii.
