The Feast of Saint Pan

Tomorrow, January 1, is the Feast of Saint Pan. As the Invisible Basilica of Sabazius says:

Pan was a solitary god who wandered among the heaths and woods, and dwelt on mountains and in caves. As a spirit of Nature, Pan could inspire terror, especially in solitary wanderers in the wilderness at night; this is the origin of our word “panic.”

In Greek, the word pan means “all,” and the Orpheans conceived of Pan as a symbol of the Universal, a personification of Nature; both Pangenetor, “all-begetter,” and Panphage, “all-devourer.” In this aspect he is portrayed in Tarot Trump XV.
