It’s a good morning for “tingly” blog posts. Here’s another. Not only does Himself sing me stories to tell, They all do. Tales, Legends, Myths, they are all meant to die and be retold. Just like all of us.
In your mind’s eye see Cernunnos. No, younger than that. Younger still. See Him before time etched its wisdom into His face, before the long exile of the gods by the one god. When the world was full of his brothers and sisters, when they could be found in every river and stream, every mountain […]
They all play a role in my life. And it is always in flux. This is the general idea though.
Poseidon is my Lover, my Husband, my King.
Hermes is my Lover, my Husband, my King, a Hunting Partner, Fellow Warrior
Apollo is my Priest, a ‘Spirit Worker’, He helps to guide and teach in the ways of Readings.
Aphrodite is my Friend, my Mother, my Huntress, my Mirror, my Love
And there’s Loki, Who does not give me another name to call Him besides Coyote. He is a very dear friend of mine and a ‘business partner’ or sorts, I tend to do a lot of readings for Lokeans. And He loves and watches over my son.
Odin is my Father in Heaven. A solid Rock and Foundation I can rest upon.
The Morrigan is my previous Patroness, an Old and Dear Friend Who is with me Always.
Now…language and names are a complicated thing. At this point in my Path and Learning, Who and What the God(s) actually are is really wibbly wobbly (totally timey wimey Dr Who shit). Besides Their continued support in one form or another, nothing is constant. The names used are the ones They currently prefer.
I find inspiration, kennings, promptings of the Spirit in the strangest of places. Currently reading Dune by Frank Herbert; Saw the movie many years ago, my father instilling a love for the book even though I’ve never read it. Here is a passage that struck me. It rings true for ALL my spouses, mortal and otherwise.
Jessica spoke, shattering the moment. “Besides, Wellington, the Duke is really two men. One of them I love very much. He’s charming, witty, considerate…tender-everything a woman could desire. But the other man is…cold, callous, demanding, selfish-as harsh and cruel as a winter wind. That’s the man shaped by the father.”…
My arthritis and fibromyalgia are flaring pretty bad at the moment so my hands are feeling pretty tender. Since I can’t do a lot of typing you get photo’s instead.
Absolutely love the name “water star”, gives me a reason associated with Himself for my love of Wednesday’s(outside of Odin), and owls. I thought the owls were Freyja’s but there was the nagging feeling that it wasn’t her alone.
I’m really loving my 3am wake up calls from my Divine Family. I have learnt something new pretty much the whole week.
In ancient China, Mercury was known as Chen Xing (辰星), the Hour Star. It was associated with the direction north and the phase of water in the Wu Xing. Modern Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Vietnamese cultures refer to the planet literally as the “water star” (水星), based on the Five elements. Hindu mythology used the name Budha for Mercury, and this god was thought to preside over Wednesday. The god Odin (or Woden) of Germanic paganism was associated with the planet Mercury and Wednesday. The Maya may have represented Mercury as an owl (or possibly four owls; two for the morning aspect and two for the evening) that served as a messenger to the underworld.
