Final Jeopardy

Category for tonight, 17 Dec 2018: Norse Mythology

Relative: I don’t know if I know anything about this mythology.

Me, very aware that Idk a lot of the myths: It depends. I might know it, but I can’t guarantee anything.

Question: He turned into a mare —

Me, already yelling at the tv: Loki!

Q (not an exact quote due to me yelling): — and gave birth to an eight-legged horse who would go on to become Odin’s steed

Me, spelling His name out and debating if I should include surname: i s2g if anyone gets this wrong

Loki’s Hands

A Trickster's Path

Pagan’s of all flavors, even Heathen, tend to recognize the ideas of the Right and Left Hand Path. And it is a simple way to speak to the ideals of the faith you follow. But let us take a look at perceptions of these two paths. 

Right Hand Paths tend toward gentler natures, soft ways, healing with Light and Love. Hope drives them forward, Life empowers them and a prevalent idea is that these types would harm none. And for my part and experience this is more than an apt description. 

They are the SJW’s fighting the good fight, they are the ones you see out there, ignoring their own needs for those who have no voice. Soup kitchens, shelters, VA supporters and workers, the doctors who travel the world to use their skills. These are all Light workers and on the Right Hand Path whether they know it or…

The underground homes, often a
century old, are topped with gardens exploding with lush dune
grass, diamondleaf willows, and yellow wildflowers—a flash of color in
an otherwise gray landscape.

“They’re bright green and everything around them is just brown,” says Brian Person, a wildlife biologist for the North Slope Borough in Barrow, Alaska. “It pops”…

I can die happy now that I know this fact.

I am now picturing soft little foxes with watering cans and spades planting and tending to their Fox Gardens

Cherishing Monsters for Their Uniqueness

i promise i will stop talking monsters soon but like

i want to cherish monsters for their uniqueness not change them

i want to approach the monster who lives in the cave and instead of ~drawing them out into the light~ i want to learn what it’s like for them in the dark

i want black leather scale-plates oiled to a fine sheen to be respectable dinner attire without having to force the monster into a cravat

i want to learn love from them because soft-bodied warlike primates aren’t the sole keepers of understanding on love

July’s temple video to Loki Herself

The Road, the Walker, and What Comes Next

It’s live!

I was feeling quiet and contemplative this month and I think this video reflects that. I also finally got the Santa Fe incense to burn nicely. I really love this brand but sometimes I have a hard time keeping the blocks lit.

My mind has been quite occupied with several projects I have going on here at home (I’m helping out a local temple with some complicated sewing work) in addition to the rapidly-approaching Many Gods West. One session is prepped; the other still needs a bit of tidying up. I’m also preparing to start work at a house reader at a local metaphysical shop, so I’ve been making lots of marketing material for that. Oh, and I’ve been producing the Santa Muerte prayer cards! They’re now in the shop and ready to ship.

Love yourself, monster.

“You need no one’s permission to do so, and if you cannot yet, or have in the past but cannot tonight, you can still love yourself later.

Love yourself, monster, as often as your black heart can.”

Ever Changing Fire

Ever Changing Fire

Hail Loki

the match head
waiting to strike
and spark
a new idea

the flame
shifting, dancing
to its own tune
a flicker
of adrenaline
in changing

the searing
bonefire
that eats
and consumes
unnecessary
hindrances

the cooking fire
pilot light
that provides for
and warms the bellies
of the family

the gentle candle
light reaching for
Sigyn’s face
in the late hours
of finishing chores

the embers
of a love fire
that sputter
and wait
but will never die

Hail Loki

Sigyn + Family Shrine

tumblr_nzqnehjnwa1spsy9ko1_500

An updated version of the shrine for Sigyn, Loki, Vali, and Narvi last featured here.

A tall, thin glass with hearts and ladybugs on it for Sigyn (top left). A margarita glass filled with cinnamon candies for Loki (top right). A seashell for Narvi (bottom left). A sand art dinosaur for Vali (bottom right). A wooden bowl for Sigyn (center) in front of an index card with a prayer and heart shaped leaf on it.

A hole appears.

Everyone Who has left:

  • Hestia
  • Dionysus – No matter how hard it may seem, I can’t give up on trying to make a career out of theatre.
  • Wadjet
  • Sekhmet
  • Raphael
  • Lucifer – When I first encountered Him, I loved the idea of learning how to play the violin for Him, but He was hesitant to confirm it. The only thing He conveyed for the portion of the Questionnaire about any debts or obligations was that I should go ahead and do so.
  • Voldemort
  • Nagini
  • Unknown Spn Entity – I was able to find out that my suspicion was correct and this was Dean.
  • Baldur
  • Hoder
  • Nanna
  • Sif
  • Idunna
  • Kolga

I am closed off to the Family of Mountains, Family of Snow and Ice, and the Family of Fire (other than two plamen Who have already visited).

Rather than having People leave outright, I’ve simply had Some turn Faces away: Narvi (Older Face) and Loki (Mardi Gras and Harley Quinn World-Breaker Faces).

Some pages have been updated, consolidated (in the case of the Tribes), and just outright deleted to reflect these changes. However, with changes being conveyed daily and trying to update more than one online space, I can’t guarantee that all updates will filter to every page / blog for a little while.
