Original Message In ancient Roman religion, Lucina was a title or epithet given to the goddess Juno,[1] and sometimes to Diana,[2] in their roles as goddesses of childbirth who safeguarded the lives of women in labor.

The title lucina** links both Juno and Diana to the light of the moon, the cycles of which were used to track female fertility as well as measure the duration of a pregnancy. Priests of Juno called her by the epithet Juno Covella on the new moon.

** (from the Latin lux, lucis, "light")

Dec 13 – Feast of the Light-bringer – Honoring Goddess as Juno Lucina (Old Roman).
