I must admit that I didn’t really know very much about Her until I read the chapter on Her in Visions of Vanaheim (pg 120 – 127). She just hadn’t been mentioned a lot, but I have been given clearance to interact with Her to help in bridge-building (it seems that the Aesir with Vanic connections are the easiest to connect with right now). For now, I’m to say a prayer to Her on the 3rd of the month during “the harvest season” (from Lights of the Phoenix to Lights of Remembrance, or from the summer solstice until 10.31). She’s confirmed the use of Sister Goldenhair by Ari (from Her northernpaganism.org shrine).
As with Sif, I’ve been given clearance to interact with Idunna in order to help with bridge-building. While She does have a chapter in Visions of Vanaheim (pg 128 – 134), I was first introduced through a devotional for Idunna and Bragi (Her husband) called Skalded Apples. I intended to introduce myself to Bragi, since I’m a writer who has spent some time with poetry and writing it (Bragi respectfully declined citing incompatibility). Idunna would also like me to say a prayer to Her on the 5th of each month during “the harvest season” (from Lights of the Phoenix to Lights of Remembrance, or from the summer solstice until 10.31). She’s confirmed the use of “Iduna’s Apple Tree” by Michael Schütz (pg 18 of the devotional).
While I knew earlier in this summer that Sif and Idunna were going to be added in on bridge-building reasons, I’m only finding out this round of updating Who I interact with and how that I’ve been given clearance to interact with Frigga. It’s a bit hard to get details right now, but Sovereignty and learning how to be a bridge for m’Lady will be involved (I’ll have lessons and potentially assignments, but it’s not neatly in the shadow work category). I’m sure I’ll find more out as I need to.
