I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Marduk's Feast Day

Today, March 12th, is the Feast of Marduk, an ancient Babylonian God. Acknowledged as the creator of the universe and of humankind, the god of light and life, and the ruler of destinies, he rose to such eminence that he claimed 50 titles. His name literally means "bull calf of the sun".

Aside from being a fertility god and god of thunderstorms, Marduk's original character is obscure. Later he became connected with water, vegetation, judgment, and magic. He is normally referred to as Bel "Lord", also bel rabim "great lord", bêl bêlim "lord of lords", ab-kal ilâni bêl terêti "leader of the gods", aklu bêl terieti "the wise, lord of oracles", muballit mîte "reviver of the dead", etc....

... I am so sorry to do this to you, but this post has been edited and moved to my new website Pagan Calendar, and can be found here: Marduk's Feast Day ... More about Marduk can also be found on The Powers That Be, here's a direct link to that post: Marduk
