O o! I am blessed today ( and feel it too )! No 24. ALPHA OF ALCYONE
In the myths of ancient Greece, Alcyone was so in love with her husband, Ceyx, that she referred to him as 'Zeus', and he referred to her as the 'divine wife of Zeus', 'Hera'. Zeus was so irritated by such grandiosity that when Ceyx was at sea, Zeus struck his ship with a lightening bolt. In her grif, Alcyone threw herself into teh sea. Moved by mercy, the gods transformed the lovers into kingfishers. These birds embody the spiritual medicine of abundance, love, prosperity, peace and happiness, bringing blessings of hope and healing to humanity.
The Halcyon Days take their name from this goddess turned kingfisher. They are the seven days on either side of the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice. During this time, there are said to be no storms, only peaceful weather. Legend has it that the god of the winds calms all storms during this period so Alcyone can nest safely. The term now symbolizes a period of luminous grace amidst a challenging time, during which one can test in tranquillity. It is also an omen of more peaceful days of love and prosperity ahead.
