Read an Excerpt

January 1



New Year's Day (Europe/United States)



Gamelia



Themes: Luck; Health; Prosperity; New Beginnings

Symbols: Two-sided Items, Representing the Old and New (like coins and hourglasses)

About Gamelia: Gamelia is a lucky aspect of the Greek goddess Hera, who brings good fortune (especially in love). On this day of new beginnings, Gamelia extends a helping hand by teaching about the cycles in your life and how to cope with them more effectively, adding a little luck to make things easier. In ancient times, people would wash Gamelia's statues on this day, symbolically wiping winter away. They would also hang bay, palm, dates, and figs around the house to inspire a year filled with Gamelia's blessings.

To Do Today: Remember Gamelia today to manifest her luck and joy in your life. Eat dates or figs (raisins are a handy substitute), leaving a little outside as an offering to her.

To encourage a fresh start, consider turning over an hourglass (or egg timer) as midnight tolls. As you turn the hourglass, recite this incantation:

The sands of time turn again; with them new life begins.
The old now departs; Gamelia, refresh my heart.


For prosperity in the new year, carry any silver-colored coin in your pocket the entire day, then use it to make a wish at any nearby fountain or water source. To foster Gamelia's help with the wish, burn a little myrrh incense.

    She Either Lies Or Has No Clue

    People...Telesco has made 2 errors in this book, and who knows - maybe more than that.

    On May 14, she talks about a Scandinavian Goddess called "Dag." Dag is a Scandinavian male GOD.

    On July 29th she talks about another Scandinavian Goddess, "Voluspa." Voluspa is a poem in a book called "The Poetic Edda" NOT A GODDESS!!

    Go find a copy of the Poetic Edda and look it up. The very first poem you find in that book is called "the Voluspa." It is Nordic prophecy; it is what a dead seeress (or "volva") said to Odin when he sought her out for information on the origins of the Nine Worlds and the Ragnarok, etc. "Voluspa" means "speech of the Volva," a volva being a prophetess/seer.

    If Telesco either lied about this or got it wrong, what else is wrong in this book??

    365 Goddess

    Being new to Goddess worship/studies this book is the foundation of a curriculum for Goddess studies that I am participating in. The layout is great; learn about a new Goddess each day and about what she represents and the culture that she comes from. My world is opening up like a beautiful flower.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not the best source

    There are many inaccuracies about different Goddesses in this book. In fact, some of the Goddesses are traditionally viewed as masculine spirits. Some are not deities and some are not feminine. It can be a good book for devotional purposes as long as some other source is used to verify the information on the particular deities/spirits. I would not use this book alone as an educational tool to learn about any particular deity you may not be familiar with.
