Pagan Festival Shout Out: Festival Of Vejovis

Vejovis (sometimes spelt Vediovis) was an obscure Roman deity. ... He was celebrated with festivals on 1 January, 7 March, and 21 May, but the nature of these festivals, as with the rest of the god's cult, is unknown.

Vejovis (sometimes spelt Vediovis) was an obscure Roman deity. He is poorly attested in both written sources and archaeology, and his nature is debated by scholars. His name is related to Jove (Jupiter), and some authors described him as either a ‘little Jupiter’ or ‘anti-Jupiter.’ 

Vejovis was often invoked during times of war. One such invocation is preserved in Macrobius’ 5th century CE Saturnalia which was used by dictators or generals to devote enemy cities. and armies to destruction. Vejovis was portrayed as a young man, holding a bunch of arrows, pilum, (or lightning bolts) in his hand, and accompanied by a goat. Romans believed that Vejovis was one of the first gods to be born. He was a god of healing, and became associated with the Greek Asclepius. He was mostly worshipped in Rome and Bovillae in Latium.

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Iroquois Maple Ceremony

Iroquois Maple Ceremony:
In thanksgiving for the Maple tree and its sugar. Iroquois believe Awenhai/Sky Woman bore the twin brothers Thahonhiawakon/Order and Tawiskaron/Chaos.

The Maple Moon fell around the first month of the spring – early to mid March – in time for the maple trees to give plenty of the wonderful sap for the people to enjoy (Haudenosaunee people lived according to the lunar calendar, counting 13 moons of 28 days each). A Maple Sugar Festival was held in order to thank the Creators. People performed sacred dances and faith-keepers would give thanksgiving speeches, burn tobacco, letting the smoke rise to the world of the Sky Spirits, carrying the gratitude to the creators.


There is a common myth, with many tribal variations, that the Creator originally made life too easy for his People, with maple trees having a syrup that flowed year round. One day, Glooskap (this name has many variations) arrived at a village and found it strangely quiet. No children or dogs came to greet him, the gardens were over grown with weeds, and the cooking fires were dead. He found the villagers lying in the maple grove, with the delicious sap running into their mouths from the trees.
Glooskap had special powers. Using a birch bark bucket, filled with water from lake, he rose above the trees and filled the trees with water until the sap ran thin. Then he encouraged his People of the village with a fiery speech. In this exhortation, he berated them for being lazy, and said as punishment the Creator was going to have the sap run only in the late winter. But, he urged them to take heed that when this happened, they would still be able to enjoy this special sweet, though only at this special time of year.

But, they’ve all been specifically genre based. No series has yet attempted to blend horror, sci-fi, the supernatural, drama, suspense and thrillers under one series… that is until now. After years of developing this anthology project, we are excited to share it with the world, and Indiegogo is the best platform to help us share our project with the world.  We aim to gain support from a large audience and reach our goals, so that we can bring this project to life.  
Although this series is built around award winning and buzzworthy screenplays, it’s important to acknowledge the amazing crew of film makers behind this series. We also have great talent attached. Without this team of passionate and experienced film industry professionals, this project could not be a reality. 
Overall, The Dark Collection is the only new anthology series that’s based on screenplays that have ALL placed highly in film festivals & screenwriting competitions within the past two years. These stories are proven to be buzzworthy, and they have already attracted industry attention. This series offers a variety of chilling cinematic tales not available anywhere else.

Pagan Festival Shout Out: Feast Of Isis

Feast of Old Romano-Egyptian Goddess Isis, the Healer--recalls Set (God of Challenges and Chaos) poisoning child God Horus, and Isis intervening, defeating Set, and healing Horus. [Roman calendar]

Isis was a great enchantress, the goddess of magic, worshipped throughout the Greco-Roman world, venerated as inventor of agriculture, law and medicine, the Mother who placed the Sun God Ra in the sky.

Isis was also a goddess of healing and magic. She lived with her brother/husband Osiris until he was killed by his brother Set. Isis, with the help of her sister Nephthys, found a part of his body in Phoenicia in a tamarisk tree, and returned it along with the other parts to Egypt for a proper burial. After Set's second attempt to dispose of the body, Isis brought Osiris back to life and later conceived a child with him, Horus. In the Osiris legend she is seen as a dutiful wife, a grieving widow and as a protector of the dead. Together with Thoth, she taught mankind the secrets of medicine. She is often rendered on the foot of coffins with long wings spread to protect the deceased.


Her festivals are celebrated January 9, February 5, March 5, March 20, May 14, June 24, July 3, July 19, August 12, August 27, and October 28 - November 3, November 13 - 14, and December 22.

Two great Festivals are dedicated to Isis. The first was celebrated on the Vernal Equinox, to celebrate the return of life to the world. She was worshipped as the ideal mother, wife, the matron of nature and magic. She was the friend of slaves, sinners, artisans, the downtrodden, who also listened to the prayers of the wealthy, maidens, aristocrats and rulers. Isis worship was concerned about the acquisition of knowledge since knowledge could only be attained from the gifts of the gods.
