Unlocking the Ancient Secrets: Exploring the Connections between the Lunar New Year and Mythology
The Lunar New Year, also known as the Chinese New Year, is a time of celebration and tradition for many cultures around the world. As we welcome in the Year of the Rabbit, it’s important to understand the connections between this holiday and various belief systems, including mythology, occultism, and paganism.
In many ancient cultures, the moon was seen as a powerful symbol of rebirth and renewal. The lunar calendar, which is based on the cycles of the moon, was used to mark the passage of time and to celebrate the changing of the seasons. The Lunar New Year, which falls on the first new moon of the lunar calendar, was seen as a time of new beginnings and a chance to start anew.
In mythology, the moon is often associated with goddesses and other female deities. The ancient Chinese goddess Chang’e, for example, is said to live on the moon and is celebrated during the Lunar New Year. The moon is also connected to witchcraft and occultism, as many ancient cultures believed that the power of the moon could be harnessed for magic and divination.
Paganism, which is a modern movement that seeks to revive ancient spiritual practices, also has a strong connection to the Lunar New Year. Many pagans celebrate the holiday by honoring the cycles of the moon and the turning of the seasons. They may also perform rituals and spells to bring good luck and prosperity in the new year.
In conclusion, Lunar New Year is deeply rooted in tradition, mythology, occultism and paganism, it’s a time of new beginnings, renewal and a perfect opportunity to honor goddesses and deities, and connect with the cycles of the moon. And we at Wicked Blood Clothing are excited to offer a variety of new designs for the Lunar New Year to help you celebrate in style.
