Temple of the Royal Pony Sisters



In the name of our Divine Majesties, Princess Celestia and Princess Luna, bringers of the sunlit days and moonlit nights, welcome to the Temple of the Royal Pony Sisters. Where the followers of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna gather to give them praise for their bright sunlit days, and beautiful moonlit nights. Please read our statement of belief before continuing:

Statement of Belief:
  • We believe that Princess Celestia, along with Princess Luna, are wise, powerful, caring, and loving rulers that rule for the benefit of all of their subjects, and with the best interests of their subjects in heart and mind at all times.
  • We reject all suggestions that Princess Celestia is a tyrant, a "troll", or other worse things some in the fandom have called her.
  • We believe the Royal Sisters have settled their differences and rule over a united Equestria.
  • As such, we reject the misguided movements of the Solar Empire and New Lunar Republic as we believe they cause division and disharmony, and thus go against the desires of our Divine Majesties.
  • All who follow Their Majesties are children of Equestria and belong to the Kingdom of Equestria. For wherever the followers of Her Majesty Princess Celestia, and Her Majesty Princess Luna, gather, there to, is the Kingdom of Equestria.


The purpose of this group is to showcase art, both visual and literature, that glorify our Divine Majesties and portray them in a positive light. Art and literature that portrays them in a negative manner, or portrays any of the negative memes about either of Their Majesties will not be accepted.

Greetings in the name of our Divine Majesties of the Sun and Moon.

I just wanted to take this time to remind you all that today is Lunar New Year! So don't forget to honor our Divine Majesty of the Night today! Of course, today is also Her Majesty's New Moon. This year is special because the Lunar New Year falls on a Monday, which is also Luna's day!

May Celestia guide your days and Luna guard your nights.


Next Temple observance:
  • February 22 - Luna's Full Moon Esbat

Happy Winter Moon Celebration to you too! Although, the Solstice is on the 22nd this year instead of the 21st, so you're a day early if you burn your all night fire tomorrow.

You know...there is some conflicting info there. I've seen some sites say the 21st and others the 22nd and one even said the 20th thru the 22nd. Either way - celebrating it "Sunday" into "Monday" is fine with me and even a greater honor to our Divine Rulers. Thank you for sharing that though!

The Solstice usually falls somewhere between the 20th and the 23rd, but more often than not, it falls on the 21st, which is why some sources assume it's always on the 21st. However, a solar day is longer than one rotation of the Earth (because the Earth is also traveling around the sun, as it rotates.) That means a solar day is longer than 24 hours. The length of a solar day is also not constant because the Earth's orbit around the sun is elliptical rather than a perfect sphere. That's why the date of the solstice drifts somewhat.

In fact, the error of assuming the solstice is always on the 21st is so common, that I've seen several printed calendars for 2015 that placed the first day of winter on the wrong date.  It's actually on the 22nd this year.

For 2016, 2017, and 2018, it's on the 21st. For 2019 it's on the 22nd. Then in 2020, it goes back to the 21st again.

Anyway, of course, it's perfectly fine to celebrate it on Sunday and Monday. Just wanted to give you the extra info about why there's some confusion about when the solstice is, and the reason why the solstice drifts, even though normally it's on the 21st.

Hope you had a good celebration!
