Mission

Our mission is to provide a doorway to weekly New Age Pagan Goddess worship for beginners, for spiritual people who have been considering Paganism and are accustomed to a more traditional worship service, and for global Pagans who simply wish for an organized system of online worship.

Creed

Our Creed opens and closes each Worship Services podcast. We call the four directions while honoring the turning of Fortuna’s wheel in Latin and English language.

Online NeoPagan Goddess Worship Services

Temple of Fortuna online worship services podcasts were written, coordinated and recorded on Sunday mornings for more than a year by the organization founder. The podcasts feature a wide variety of wonderful guest speakers as well as permissioned music by many different talented performing artists and bands.

The recordings were created in a global outreach to form both an international, online Pagan congregation and an association for organized, spiritual New Age Pagan Goddess worship headquartered in Southern California, USA. These worship services can be attended at the convenience of the global online Pagan congregation, from the privacy of the home, or anywhere there is an internet connection and access to this website.

The Worship Services podcasts are available to the public for listening free of charge throughout the year. A library of programs and transcribed sermons from our worship services are archived for the convenience of Temple of Fortuna dot com subscribers.

*The Temple organization prohibits any activity, ritual tool, costume, decoration, or “acting out” of any ritual or temple-affiliated activity which depicts or is derived from abuse, exploitation or harm to animals, people or the environment.*

Rituals and activities shall be in compliance with local, national and international law.

Website

Work on the website of Temple of Fortuna dot com was started in 2009. Soon thereafter, the Temple website could be found organically on the first page of major search engines, for the search terms Pagan Worship Services and Temple Of Fortuna. We may infer that the blessings of the Goddess Fortuna, Herself, have been with us on this virtual, spiritual journey.

In 2014 a new banner and logo were designed by the organization founder. The design was inspired by photographs of a wonderful statue of the Goddess Fortuna, and the colors and detail of an altar decorated with vibrant frescoes of the Goddesses Fortuna and Ceres. The website was upgraded and decorated with matching colors.

Formal Shrine of Fortuna Huiusque Diei

November 11, 2017 (Year 17 Aquarius) an online Shrine of Fortuna Huiusque Diei was approved by the board of directors, as an aspect of the Temple of Fortuna dot com organization, in a spirit of cooperation between non-affiliated organizations that may share similar spiritual values at a beginner or first year level.

The Shrine was established with the intention that Temple of Fortuna dot com may include rituals performed in a Correllian Nativist style. People who have participated in first year coursework offered through Correllian Educational Ministries, and who would like to participate in ritual featuring the Goddess Fortuna, are welcome at Temple of Fortuna dot com. 

The Shrine was proposed after a thorough review of the first year program and mentoring offered by Correllian Education Ministries was completed by the President of Temple of Fortuna dot com, E. Sylvia Simpson, who was recognized by Correllian Nativist Tradition on April 5, 2017 as having completed a one year clergy training program with their ministries.

Several different aspects of Fortuna were discussed by the board, as well as by interested members of the public, and Fortuna Huiusque Diei (Fortune or Luck of the Present Day) was selected by the majority for the naming of the shrine. The shrine is not formally affiliated with the Correllian Nativist Church, and is sponsored by Temple of Fortuna dot com. 

To create a sigil for the shrine, a template was designed by board member and award-winning tarot artist, Robert Place, who gave Temple of Fortuna dot com permission to use and select colors for the sigil. Pluma Argenti, Keeper of the Santuario de Ereshkigal Correllian Witan Shrine, applied the colors and gave Temple of Fortuna dot com permission to use the colored sigil.
