There are so many 'heresies' to contend with within the sphere of European religion that it makes efforts to meaningfully convert people mostly a joke. Even if you succeed initially, they can so easily be led astray and come into a position where apostasy is inevitable.
The truth is that calling our religio in its current state a "tradition" is at best mere rhetoric. Not because it can't become a tradition, but because what that tradition entails is an awful mess of disagreements and inconsistencies. Such cannot be meaningfully called tradition.
I'm not ignorant to there being a tinge of irony in my criticism, given I also am just one of many persons espousing a view I believe is true against others who believe their own version to be true; but so long we are in such a state of disorder, there'll be no lasting revival.
Theological chaos is corrosive and contrary to pax deorum. Those who embrace it, making out doctrine and dogma as 'evils' of Abrahamic religion, are merely analogical to modern liberal/pomo cultural attitudes. Orthopraxy was the ancient dogma. It was not ad hoc nor anachronistic.
"But we should restore orthopraxy, not establish doctrine/dogma."

The fact orthopraxy was not anachronistic means the very notion of 'restoration' when applied to orthopraxy is in itself a contradiction. There will be no success in being unconscious to the needs of the day.
In the face of today's chaotic individuated conceptualism, we MUST advance the universal truth that transcends all individuated ideation, the regimenting truth that disciplines our souls into righteous and proper communion with the whole of the cosmic and the divine.
Whatever little or great I can do to serve this end, I intend to do, but the deficit of sentiment for what should be viewed as a natural step of progression for us is bitter to face. May the Gods urge us towards loving harmony with them as much as we should, and yet do not.

You misunderstand.

Body resides within soul as its activity, so union necessarily cannot be accidental. Sense faculties are product of the soul's prior activity expressed through its body; it cannot be 'of the body' in and of itself as bodies do not intrinsically possess senses.
To say the sense faculties are a "necessary component" of an activity within its prior cause violates the principle of procession. As prior to sense faculties (SFs), intellect within soul gives rise to SFs alongside the rest of the body within which the SFs are integrally part.
It is not that intellect has adorned the body with sense, nor especially as you say that it has done so out of obliged necessity to complete its own essential act, but that the activity of soul achieved via intellect has integral to its bodily generation the SFs.

The process was a bit idiosyncratic. I begun with a simple Pythagorean assumption that 12 was a more complete number than 7, so it would be a better number of days in the week. From that, I begun to build the calendar just to see where it would take me.
Since giving each month an equal number of days would've meant splitting some weeks in half between the months, I followed the Pythagorean logic of identifying the dyad with the feminine and the triad with the masculine, so goddess months have two weeks and god months have three.
Thus goddess months have 24 days, which brought to its digital root (DR), 2 + 4, is 6. God months have 36 days, its DR 9. Basically 6 is a divine generative number while 9 is its completion because the primordial divine triad generates via serial magnitudes of itself.

It's a sad fact many "converts" abuse the lack of a native European religious moral authority to affirm their existing habits and vices. Usually ex-Christians totally incapable of controlling their vices, they convert to abuse every ambiguity to try justify their lives.
They treat apostasy as a liberation from chafing moral obligations, their "conversion" giving them licence to now indulge in every proclivity without guilt or circumspect. They treat the cultus deorum as a blank canvas they can use to paint whatever morality they desire.
They are in practice theologically indistinguishable from New Age religion, their only point of difference being what flavour of politics they've projected into their personalised, retrofitted cult. All "pagans" of this variant can simply be neatly labeled 'postmodern pagans'.

Much in the world makes sense when you realise that Judaism values a witness' observation of an event more highly than evidence for the event itself. Its judicial system relied on witnesses, the Torah stating two or more witnesses was enough to indict someone of a crime.
This attitude of legitimate truth via witness came to us in Christianity, whereby the whole of Europe observed the truth of Christ not by evidence but by witness, and so we embraced the authenticity of witnessed account over evidence. Hence forgiveness absolves evil by agreement.
This enough was sufficient to build a moral system of witness, a necessary consequence when you observe the most fundamental truth—that Christ was God—as being grounded in witness accounts and not by material evidence or reason. These are rejected, there is only witness truth.

It is more than mere preference. Platonism is Soul's divine science towards truth, so the judgement is in what can be argued as nearer to what is true rather than what best suits our sensibilities. Platonism emerges from tradition, but it has also been refined over centuries.
And this divine science gives us the means to perfect our traditions, an unprecedented capacity to not only know the true value of the inherited cultus deorum, but to also rectify its path should it be led astray and to help navigate it through the tumult of an unknown tomorrow.
Setting praise aside, the subject: goddess Sun & god Moon.

Why Platonists have argued against this tradition is from trying to justify them as principles. The Moon is a receptive sphere, truth of this most easily observed in the Moon's light being a reflection of the Sun's.

Why believe in many gods and goddesses?

Because the supremacy and glory of the Supreme is not to be thought compact or contained, but overflowing with an immeasurable magnitude. His court is not vacant, but filled with his divine godly vassals and holy retainers. Image
All the cosmos in its multitude of forms stand as testimony to the supremacy and beauty of their King- why should beauty be here in such grandness and magnitude, and not 'There'? Surely we may say, with certain confidence, that what we find grand here must be even grander there.
For all the things which are here, with their imperfections and partiality, there is a greater who rules them in Heaven. Even the things in nature which we say are dead, without life- surely these things in their highest heavenly perfection are filled with life and consciousness?
