Garden of Life in Ruritania Font
Definitions, Premisses, and Info in Trinculo Font
Special Note: Garden of Life uses a large number of specially purposed English words, often spelled slightly differently than regular, to make their specific meaning more apparent. We also use a large number of neologisms, specifically constructed for Temple use. All of this type of terminology is defined in several places on the website, here in the Garden of Life website Definitions pages, in the Articles of Organization glossary, and such. If you are viewing this page in a browser which doesn't support full current Unicode coding or if you haven't installed current free Unicode fonts, such as Code2000 version 1.171 at FontSpace or Alphabetical List of Unicode Fonts, many of the phonetic characters, diacritical marks, and symbols in these pages will not show up or will show up as boxes. Availability changes so you may have to do a search. It's a free font for personal use, so we can send you a copy if you can't find it. And the display probably won't be perfect anyway, but it's getting closer all the time. At the risk of belabouring the extremely obvious, this page is a work in progress, with quite a distance to go before it sleeps. All of these Attributions are from our perspective. We are not putting them forward as objective fact. We welcome all feedback at Defs@gardenoflifetemple.com, though we do not guarantee to process such feedback other than for ascertainable accuracy and usefulness. Thanks.

L̅ēōñōç (nomenclature vulgaris: Leo)L̅ēōñōç is the name used in Garden of Life Astrological Terminology for the Astrological Sign on the Ecliptic in the Zodiac in reference from our local star system), referred to as "Leo" in the Western mainstream vernacular. Though this does not indicate where the Constellation from which it takes it's name is currently on the Ecliptic, since Signs in Tropical Astrology are determined in sections from where the Vernal Equinox occurs against the Ecliptic rather than by the Constellation's current position. These names may help to make the separation of the two concepts seem more intuitive. Garden of Life uses either terms from the earlier Ægean languages or words constructed from root words in those languages for all components of the Cosmos, or at least for those of the local Universe; partially due to a feeling that the earlier terms represent a more exact and purer resonance with the named object, force, and/or field, than the Latinate term commonly used (theory of deterioration of quality in a copy of a copy of a copy, etc.); and partially because, though we sometimes use, within the Temple, terms for these components derived from Ægyptian culture, and in some cases Sanatana Dharma and Sanskrit, and/or other ancient sources, those seemed a bit "over the top" for daily use (but we never can tell). Also there was a desire to rebalance the Feminine and Masculine Energies in the naming of the Planets and other components of the local star system.

La Belle Époque ― Le Beau Monde and La Belle Époque both terms are French and evoke a time of opulence and luxury. Le Beau Monde refers to fashionable society over a long period of time ( Le Beau Monde is thought to have entered common parlance in the 18th century i.e.: sometime during 1705 to 1715.) in different configurations; while the Belle Époque was a short specific period in European and American social history that began in the late19th century and lasted until World War I. It is considered a "Gilded Age" as peace prevailed among the major powers of Europe and a time of prosperity befell the United States. Sometimes people use the French term Martelé (which is a brand of fine hammered silver) as a time designation for La Belle Époque as well, in the way that some important component of a phenomena may be utilized to refer to the whole; a type of Synecdoche in Linguistic terminology, from the Greek Συνεκδοχή (Synekdoche) meaning simultaneous understanding.

La Vecchia Religione ― When used in reference to a MetaPhysical Orientation as to Tradition, Culture or Preferred Flavour, is primarily defined, usually selfdefined by its members and/or adherents holding a view that the religion that they follow surivived the christian occupation of Western Civilization as a primary or critical parameter of their Spiritual Paradigm. Italian Witchcraft, founded in the mid 14th century with the teachings of Aradia, the Holy Strega, and based upon the pre-Etruscan Italian belief system.

Labyrinth ― The Labyrinth whether considered as a design motif, or a tool for creating sacred space, or in any other manner, is an ancient and important Symbol in the Human Story. Representing a journeying inward and reconnecting with Earth and Sky, Made as a single winding path, folding back on itself, leading to the center. Unlike a Maze which may have multiple paths and dead ends, in a Labyrinth you leave by the same path which you enter (or you are assumed to have access to some non-physical means of egress). Many cultures have utilized the Labyrinth motif, evidently independently, examples abound from Africa, all over Europe and Asia, Australia, and North and South America (Antartica? Examples unknown at this time.) from very ancient periods; periods in which mainstream anthropology will countenance no possible contact between such cultures, . . . whether it may or may not have happened, being as always thought inconsequential by those folk. The extent to which these designs represented actual structures is in many cases unknown, and what exactly the symbol itself meant to the cultures drawing it is also unknown. If they had no contact, then perhaps they were representing something intrinsic to the Human Mind? The symbol, and the actual structures, where they are known, seem to always have some connection with the idea of meditation, and/or some sort inward Spiritual Questing.

Lady Day ― The name used within a variety of Pagan Traditions to indicate a HolyDay usually, though not universally Celebrated on the First of April, commemorating the first blooms of the blossoming trees and shrubs as well as of Love. Many of the Bower Traditions of Europe and Scandinavia are centered around this HolyDay. These Bower Traditions usually involved the young men going out into the surrounding forests and building the most beautiful bowers which they could achieve to attract their wished-for Beloved's attention in such a manner as to persuade them to take up at least temporary residence in said Bower. The motif of these Celebrations usually revolved around the idea of being Carefree, with frivolity being the order of the day.

Divination by water in a basin, performed by various means such as by dropping gems in the water, or by staring into the water's surface in order to see prophetic images.

One of the particular variants of Lecanomancy was developed by the Assyrians, they would take a skin full of water, upon which they put plates of gold and silver and precious stones written upon with certain images, names and characters. This may include the process where lead and wax, were melted and cast into the water, creating marks on the different substances which can then be interpreted in the divination. There is also a connection to certain Fountains that were utilized for prophecy such as the Water of Hera, located at Επίδαυρος (Epidavros), a small Πόλις (Polis) in ancient Greece, at the Saronic Gulf.

Ley Lines ― Ley Lines are thought to be lines of energy or force, which connect spots which have been consecrated by one or more Traditions as Sacred Spaces, including both intact places in Nature that have been recognized as Sacred, and places which have been created or modified by humanity. These Sacred Spaces may or may not contain Sacred Stones, Bætyli, and/or Menhirs, but many do, and the stones may be large or small. So the Sacred Spaces between which Ley Lines run are recognized as human-contributed phenomena. Ley Lines may be straight across neighborhoods and/or continents, they may also create various polygons when marked on a map. The lines may be felt and followed by those sensitive to their existence. Many of the Stones in question seem to have a high percentage of Quartz content, which gives a certain evidence to the idea that they contain and can hold charges of energy, which may be increased or decreased. If the Sacred Spaces involved are close together, and/or arranged in various geometric figures laid out on the countryside, it seems to increase the power of the lines and the ease of detection. For instance Ley Lines between Sacred Spaces which make a pentagon or septagon, will tend to partake partially of the energies symbolized by those figures. Opinions differ on whether the Lines appear spontaneously, or if effort was put into constructing them by earlier Werkings, or if it is some combination of the two. Some believe that the Charging of the places and especially Stones, as well as the Ley Lines may be increased consciously by Werkings planned by groups. Charging methods include heating, knocking with other stones, washing with Spring or other Sacramental Waters, and/or setting up vibrational changes through ranges of frequency by sounds such as chanting.

A Liminal state, event, and/or occurance may appear spontaneously, or be planned for, or be part of a regular functioning social cycle. Experiencing Liminality is most common for individuals and groups, though in some cases may apply to entire cultures or all of humanity, such as in the instances where a major paradigm shift is going on, within a culture, or now more frequently worldwide, there is a period during which the old paradigm fades and the new one takes hold. Liminality has both spatial and temporal dimensions, and can be applied to a variety of subjects: individuals, larger groups (cohorts or villages), whole societies, and possibly even entire civilizations.[43] The following chart summarizes the different dimensions and subjects of liminal experiences, and also provides the main characteristics and key examples of each category.

Linguistic Relativity Hypothesis ― The Linguistic Relativity Hypothesis may be usefully oversimplified into the statement: the language (or languages) which one learns, speaks, and thinks in, profoundly affect the consensus reality, worldview, and/or Weltanschauung which one perceives. The concept was most strongly supported by and explored by Benjamin Lee Whorf, a twentieth century Linguist. There are around 5000 languages in use today, and each is quite different from many of the others. Differences are especially pronounced between languages of different families, e.g., between Indo-European languages like English and Hindi and Ancient Greek, on the one hand, and non-Indo-European languages like Hopi and Chinese and Swahili, on the other. Many thinkers have urged that large differences in language lead to large differences in experience and thought. They hold that each language embodies a worldview, with quite different languages embodying quite different views, so that speakers of different languages think about the world in quite different ways. This view is sometimes called the Whorf-hypothesis or the Whorf-Sapir hypothesis, after the linguists who made it famous. But the label linguistic relativity, which is more common today, has the advantage that makes it easier to separate the hypothesis from the details of Whorf's views, which are an endless subject of exegetical dispute (Gumperz and Levinson, 1996, contains a sampling of recent literature on the hypothesis). The Linguistic Relativity Hypothesis is often defined as having two versions: a strong version that language determines thought and that linguistic categories limit and determine cognitive categories; and a the weak version that linguistic categories and usage influence thought and certain kinds of non-linguistic behavior. Obviously the words that we have for things do influence how we are able to think about them.

Literature ― When the term Arts is used in the context of the various categories of Art, it normally refers to This Classification must do service to contain all Works of Language other than those of Poetry, Theatre and Spoken Word. Specifically, Prose Writings having excellence of form and/or expression and conveying and/or implying Ideas of timeless value and/or comprehensive interest to the Human Community are considered Literature. Of course, this type of taxonomy requires a multitude of subjective decisions, and variable rates of consensus among Humanity as a whole, so one person's List of Literature will normally not be the same as any other's.

Living Rock ― When the term Living Rock is used, especially in the context of various metaphysical, ritual, and/or spiritual occurrences, and spaces therefor, it normally refers to rock that is still part of the earth, like a mountain; especially still in the position that the interaction of natural earth forces has moved it to so far, and especially large unbroken volumes of rock. Contrast this to rock that has been quarried and moved somewhere; it is still rock, but no longer "living rock". Also, boulders or pebbles which have somehow become unattached from a mountain and rolled down into a valley, are also not considered "living rock", so human intervention is not required for the process. These are just a couple of instances, and there is a range of subjectivity as to what is considered Living Rock, in that there are areas which almost everyone who has an opinion would agree are living rock, across a sliding scale to areas that almost everyone who considers such things would agree are not living rock, and in between many shadings of concurrence. The unbrokenness vector having a lot to do with the solidity of definition. It's not that areas in order to be considered Living Rock, must have no broken parts, crack, fissures, but they need to be kept to a minimum for an area to be widely acclaimed as Living Rock The ones which do actually have no broken parts are in a special subcategory of their own. There is a range of allowable cracks and fissures, and some certainly, while not desirable, are permissible without a structure loosing its living rock categorization. Examples may clarify to some extent: If a chamber is carved out of living, massive, unbroken rock, then regardless of its purpose or utilization, ritual or mundane, it is a chamber out of living rock. Obviously, there is an enormous and very specific type of energy that becomes tapable in such a chamber, especially conducive to certain types of ritual Werkings. In a second example, there is an fundamental difference in feel between a staircase which is built out of some material and placed in a shaft or against an incline, and steps which are literally carved out of living rock and thus into the body of the planet itself.

Loebe ― Loebe as an Anglicized term from the actual Greek Λοιβή liquid offering or libation (specifically one where the entire offering is given to the Gods)

Logarithamancy and Logarithascopy ― When the term Logarithamancy is used in reference to a type of divination, it generally refers to divination utilizing logarithms or algorithms.

The term Logarithamancy is derived from the Greek words: Λόγος (Logos) meaning proportion, reckoning, computation, ratio, word, and Ἀριθμέω (Arithmos) meaning number (thus literally: ratio-number); and Μαντεία (Manteia), meaning divination.

Logic ― (as a sub-discipline of Philosophy): The study of correct reasoning. This is not as strict and unimaginative as it may sound, although it is here that the hard and dull work is done. Everyone employs logic all the time and everywhere (after all, calling someone by name is a categorical proposition!) but not everyone does it well. And it is possible to reason very poorly indeed. Logic helps us to identify and remove errors in our thinking.

Logical Positivist ― When used in reference to a point of view within the field of Ethical, Value and/or Behavioural Matters, this is a Point of View in which the prime parameter for effectuating a course of action is determined by choosing that which is Philosophical stance, Logical Positivism proposes that empirical science is the only source of true knowledge about anything. All propositions must make some reference to the observable world.

Logomancy and Logoscopy ― When the term Logomancy is used in reference to a type of divination, it generally refers to divination using words Logomancy divination using words.

The term Logomancy is derived from the Greek words: Λόγος (Logos) meaning word, proportion, reckoning, computation, ratio, and Μαντεία (Manteia), meaning divination.

-logy ― The suffix -logy is derived from the Greek word: , meaning 'study of' and/or 'love of studying'. The suffix -logy is from an Anglicized Greek word which creates a combining form meaning 'divination' mostly occurring along with other loanwords from Greek and used in combination with other elements of Greek origin,

Lotus Wand ― When the term Lotus Wand is used in reference to a Mægikal Implement, Sacred Object, Ceremonial Tool and/or Focus it generally refers to a a cylindrical or spiral wand or rhod topped with a representaion of a Lotus specifically made for general or particular Mægikal Werking, and/or consecrated to the same. The Lotus may be any of a wide range of colours, with Green, White, and Blue being the most common, occasionally one of the Red-Violet variety is seen. The colour of the Lotus, and the colour and design of the wand or rhod secondarily, determine the resonance of the particular Wand.

Love ― The English word Love makes for a particularily tricky definition (see - Stanford Encylopedia of Philosophy entry on Love). In spite of English's apparent willingness to absorb truckloads of Greek terms to allow extremely precise delineation between nuance of meaning in a wide variety of scientific and philosophic fields, there has been an apparent dearth of willingness to absorb the ~twenty-three or so basic root words from Greek which are translated as "Love". Leaving the English word Love to do much heavy lifting, including of course, the favoured category of Love in reference to Physical, Mental, and/or Spiritual Unification of Persons. However the term is also used for:
          Love as Robust Concern
          Love as Appraisal of Value
          Love as Bestowal of Value
          Love as Emotion Proper
          Love as Emotion Complex
and probably other categories of meaning, not even considering the idiomatic and slang expressions. Since we've rarely seen a Neologism that we didn't like, we create ~English words, with "total Abandon". For the Rose Recension Correspondences Codex, a large number of terms have been coined and/or harvested to allow more precise referrence to meanings of Love; such as: Deoagapeos (Love of and or by Divine Forms and/or Forces), Agapeos (Unbounded Love), Universal Love, (Love for One's Species, Birth Planet, and the Cosmos), Parental Love, Eros (Ardent Sexual Effectuated Desire), Anteros (Reciprocated Sexual Love), Sunaegaepaeos (Polyamorous Love, Love among more than two Lovers within the same context), Akseos (perception of balanced feelings reciprocated, deserving), Socratic Love, (Mentor-Student/Fellow Students Feelings and Romantic Relationships), Apfrodiseos (Sexual Attraction Arousal), Maneros (Highly Emotional Sexual based Love), Phileos (Friendship), Philallelos (Mutual Affection), Eromanea (Sexual Effectuated Desire Obsessive to the point of Madness), Philothereos (Romantic and/or Sexual Love based on the Appeal of the Chase), Philadelpheos (Sibling Love), Kyprideos (Love originating in Aesthetics), Ideros (Love from first sight), Amour (Romantic Love: per Troubadour, Trouveres Traditions: Courtly Love, with or without Sexual Components), Proskedes (general kindness, strong positive emotion of regard and affection, Simple Affection as with acquaintances or the general population), Storgos (Normal Natural Everyday Love and Affection between joined partners), Erototeros (Liking of things, inanimate objects, unable to reciprocate), Ludoeros (Sexual Love played as a game, the Game of Love, Playfulness), Love/Hate combination, Erotao (Lovesickness), Imeros (longing or yearning), Threneros (Romantic and Sexual Love characterized by an inability to get along out of bed), Kseinobekheos (Romantic and/or Sexual Love for Strangers and/or the Strange), Allelophileos (Loving one another as in a group bound by cultural and/or religious ties), Khorophileos (Love of a place), Pragmatos (Pragmatic Love, Marriages of Convenience). All of these and doubtless others will eventually be included in this definitions, premisses, and info index, if they aren't already.

Love/Hate combination ― Love/Hate combination

Luo Pan ― When the term Luo Pan is used in reference to the field of Divination, it generally refers to a Chinese magnetic compass, also known as a Feng Shui compass. It is used by a Feng Shui consultant to determine the optimum orientation of a structure or the arrangement of the furniture and other items within. Since the invention of the compass for use in Feng Shui, traditional Feng Shui has required its use.

Like a conventional compass, a Luo Pan is a direction finder. However, a Luo Pan differs from a compass in several important ways. The most obvious difference is the Feng Shui formulas embedded in up to 40 concentric rings on the surface. This is a metal or wooden plate known as the heaven dial. The circular metal or wooden plate typically sits on a wooden base known as the earth plate. The heaven dial rotates freely on the earth plate. A red wire or thread that crosses the earth plate and heaven dial at 90-degree angles is the Heaven Center Cross Line, or Red Cross Grid Line. This line is used to find the direction and note position on the rings. The schematic of earth plate, heaven plate, and grid lines is part of the two cords and four hooks geometrical diagram in use since at least the Warring States period. A conventional compass has markings for four or eight directions, while a Luo Pan typically contains markings for 24 directions. This translates to 15 degrees per direction. Interestingly, the Sun takes approximately 15.2 days to traverse a point. If you mark a series of 24 points on the ecliptic it creates a cycle of 365.25 days, which means that each degree on a Luo Pan approximates a terrestrial day. A Luo Pan does not point to the north pole of Earth. The needle of a Luo Pan points to the south magnetic pole (it does not point to the geographic pole). The Chinese word compass translates to "pointing-south needle."

Low Mægik ― Mægik practiced by people who are not trained in High Mægik and does not involve the ritualized summoning of spirits. Spells, incantations and concocted philters and potions are the lowest forms of Low Mægik.

Lucid Dreaming

Ludoeros ― Ludoeros as an Anglicized term from the actual Greek Λύδοἔρως meaning Sexual Love played as a game, the Game of Love, Playfulness. There seems to be a connection to the Lydians, in general, who introduced the typical Hellenic Games to the Etruscans and thereby the Romans. Possibly they had a reputation as excelling at this art? Or perhaps they tried to get this sport include in the Games as a special event?

See also: Λύδοἔρως, and Love

Lughnassad ― The name used within a wide variety of Pagan Traditions to indicate a HolyDay usually, though not universally Celebrated on August 1st - 2nd in the Northern Hemisphere. In reference to the Vegetal Cycle, Lughnassad is the time of the first harvest, when the plants of spring wither and drop their fruits or seed for our use as well as to ensure future crops. Though all parts of Vegetative Cycles vary according to the area and type of crops in the area in which they are Celebrated, this time is considered to reflect First Harvest. The Sun rises farther in the South each day and the nights grow longer. Bread is baked in honour of the first reapings of the grain harvest (there is some resonance with Cakes for the Queen of Heaven Traditions of Mesopotamia). Lughnasadh is Irish Gaelic for "festival of Lugh" (a major Irish deity) Lunsa is Anglo-Saxon for "festival of the loaves" ("hlaf-mass") Lug or Lugh (pronounced /'luː/; modern Irish Lú) is an Irish deity represented in mythological texts as a hero and High King of the distant past. He is known by the epithets Lámhfhada (pronounced /'la:wad̪ˠ?/, meaning "long arm" or "long hand", or "left hand"), for his skill with a spear or sling, Ildánach ("skilled in many arts"), Samhildánach ("Equally skilled in many arts"), Lonnbeimnech ("fierce striker" or perhaps "sword-shouter") and Macnia ("boy hero"), and by the matronymic mac Ethlenn or mac Ethnenn ("son of Ethliu or Ethniu"). He is a reflex of the pan-Keltic god Lugus, and his Welsh counterpart is Lleu Llaw Gyffes "Lugh Strong Hand". His attributes include being Patron of all the crafts and artesans, and Lughnassad reflects a cycle of events which contained Lugh somehow keeping the harvests for the people of the World, when forces of the Other Worlds were attempting to take them for themselves.

Lunar Cycles, Phenomena, and Eclipses ― Lunar Cycles, Phenomena, and Eclipses occur and are noted in various Astronomical and Astrological ways among a variety of Traditions, secular and religious. When Garden of Life uses the terms pertaining to Lunar Cycles, Phenomena, and Eclipses it typically refers to the Celebration of the event, however it might be determined, utilizing the forms and techniques which have become Sacred to our Tradition. Many of these we share in common with the wider Pagan community, ancient and modern; and may be Celebrated in numerous manners from simple personal acknowledgement, to a regular Werking Circle, all points in between and beyond.

Lycian Tradition ― When used in reference to a MetaPhysical Orientation as to Tradition, Culture or Preferred Flavour, is primarily defined, usually selfdefined by its members and/or adherents holding as a primary or critical parameter of their Spiritual Paradigm. In the Lycian Tradition the emphasis is placed directly on the individual.
Rights of Seekers in The Lycian Craft
            1. To question anything.
            2. To define the purpose of their lives, known as the Great Work, for themselves.
            3. To proceed in the Great Work as they see fit.
            4. To do as they will, knowing they alone bear the responsibility for all consequences proceeding there from.
            5. To hold any belief, though there may be no evidence whatsoever, as valid for themselves.
            6. To reject any belief, for any reason whatsoever, as invalid for themselves only.
The belief is that strong individuals make a strong cohesive group, not the other way around. We test each other constantly, much as individual members of a wolf pack test one another. We use techniques such as the "Wolf Exercise" to accomplish this rather than physical aggressiveness. In this way not only do we become more skilled in the Craft, but also those with the most experience and knowledge rise to the "Alpha Wolf" status of Priest or Priestess. In turn, if someone has achieved that status and no longer has any more to teach, then another more able person will take their place and continue the teachings. In this way the tradition adapts itself to the people of the current generation without losing its old ways.
