Dionysos Bookmark Now Available

I was recently contacted to design a bookmark in honor of the Greek God Dionysos. The bookmark is a dual-sided design: each side with its own unique look developed from surviving archaeological depictions of this beloved Greek God, ranging from mosaic tiles to statuary. One side presents the Oration of Aristides (a powerful cleansing prayer to Dionysos) in English, and the other in ancient Greek. For those who are interested this bookmark is now available and being sold at WyrdCuriosities.

Sigdrifa’s Prayer Bookmarks Now Available For Sale

Sigdrifa’s Prayer is a rare remnant in our lore, as it’s the only non-Christianized, complete prayer that we have from the historical sources. In it’s short simplicity, the prayer found in the Sigdrifumal is a microcosm of the vast macrocosm of Northern Tradition cosmology. It holds a very special place in my heart.

Many of you are no doubt familiar with my long standing tradition of providing free Sigdrifa’s Prayer bookmarks to active duty and veteran members of the United States military. I’ve sent them off to pagan circles in the military, as well as individuals.

After years of receiving requests to do so, I’ve decided to let these bookmarks now be purchased by those who otherwise would not be eligible to receive it. WyrdCuriosities will be selling these on my behalf. Proceeds will help me continue to offer these for free to pagan and polytheistic veterans or active duty members of the U.S. military.

The Holy Tides – Charming of the Plough / Disting

For many pagans, this is the time of year where they honor and celebrate Imbolc one of the pagan holidays that comprise the Wheel of the Year. For those of us in the Northern Tradition however, we have our only celebrations known as holy tides (from the Old Norse hátíðir) that we may currently be celebrating instead: Charming of the Plough or Disting.

Exploring Our Gods and Goddesses – Sigyn

I’ve been a bit distracted, I meant to re-share this several days ago in celebration of the Sigyn Agon running over at Gangleri’s Grove. Click on the link for a thorough exploration into the Goddess Sigyn, from what we know about here from lore and the archaeological record, spotlighting various artistic depictions of Her, correcting common misperceptions that arise in connection with Her, and poetry in Her honor.
