Carmentalia (Roman)

Color of the day:  White
Incense of the day:  Bayberry
Today the Romans honored Carmenta, goddess of prophecy and childbirth. Since April was a traditional Roman marriage month, many women visited Carmenta's temple nine months later, in January. Carmenta was a midwife and sibyl-she sang her prophecies and often told the fortunes of babies. Only vegetarian sacrifices were allowed at her altar. In honor of Carmenta, here is a spell to promote prophetic dreams: Mix equal parts dried rose petals and mugwort, wrap in cloth, and tie with a white ribbon. Place the bundle in your pillowcase.

Carmenta guide my dreams
each night,
Aid me with your gift of
Show me what I need to see,
As I will, so mote it be.
