OCTOBER 5th is Aura Placidus, the autumnal feast of Dionysus, deity of liberation and ecstatic transcendence over death as symbolized by divine intoxication.
Aura Placidus means "gentle breeze" and today is a day to simply enjoy a day of rest.
For Dionysus, it was a day of rest after the gathering of the grapes and preparing them for fermentation ... and maybe having a taste or two, just to see how it was getting on.
The Aura Placidus was celebrated with singing, dancing and games ... and with much feasting and drinking.
Antinous traditionally has been identified with Dionysus "Twice Born" of mortal woman and divine radiance.
Antinous/Dionysus reminds you that you are HOMOTHEOSIS ... Gay Man Godliness Becoming the Same in Divine Radiance.
Today we take a break, sit back, and toast Antinous/Dionysus the divine liberator!
