She to whom January 1st is dedicated and to whom is honored on this day is the Babylonian Goddess, Aa.
She is also known as:
Mother of All Things
Goddess of the Dawn
Goddess of the Light
While She is known as Aa in Babylonia, She is also known as Serida in Sumeria, and in Akkadian as Aya, which means “dawn” in Akkadian.
She is “the Beginning” and “The Mother of All Wisdom” and is associated with the eastern mountains which bring the sun into the sky.

Her symbol is an 8-rayed sphere representing the symbol of light. As the consort of Shamash, the god of the sun, She was also called Bride of the Sun. Her sacred marriage to Shamash brought all thing to grow and prosper.
Aa brings the energy from the dawning of the sun on a new day.
