Nidhogg’s Blot

Invocation to Nidhogg

At the base of the great World Tree
Dwells a black dragon
Whose name is Nidhogg,
Whose sole task is gnawing
At the roots of Yggdrasil.
As quickly as it gnaws away,
New growth comes forth
In a never-ceasing spiral.
At the base of each soul
Dwells a black dragon
Whose name is Conscience,
Whose sole job is gnawing
On our blithe thoughtlessness.
As it gnaws and forces us
To do what should be done,
It clears away our disorder
And allows for new growth
In the tangle of our lives.
Teach us, gnawer at the roots,
How to listen and decide.

Chant:

Roots of the Tree,
Hidden, mysterious,
Reveal them to me,
Dragon of Earth.

(Each person shall snap a twig from the branches on the altar and take it with them, laying it under their pillow to remember Nidhogg and their own consciences. The mead is passed around and shared, and the remainder poured out as a libation to Nidhogg.)

Spell Of The Day for Jan. 26th – A Matter of Fate Spell (Wolf Moon)

A Matter Of Fate

The three most notable and powerful giant maidens in Norse mythology are the Norns, with their shape-shifting wolf companions called the Hounds of the Norns. These giant goddesses of fate are named Urd, who represents the past, Verdandi, who symbolizes the present, and Skuld, who signifies the future. Even gods cannot undo what the Norns weave into the fabric of fate.

As you drift off to sleep, give yourself the suggestion that you will meet the three Norns in your dreams. Repeat to yourself:

“I will meet the Norns in my dreams and remember the answer to my question when I wake up.”

If you have something specific you want to ask the, then feel free to ask it. Otherwise, leave it up to the Norns to tell you what you need to know. When you meet the Norns in your dreams, don’t be afraid to confront them and ask them what you want to know. When you awaken, be sure to make a note of any answers or information you receive in your journal.

Earth Spirits: Gnomes, Elves, Dwarves and Leprechauns

Earth Spirits: Gnomes, Elves, Dwarves and Leprechauns

 

It is recommended approaching earth spirits with caution. They are of the elemental race and inhabit a completely different realm, so it is hard to impossible for a human to understand how their minds truly work.

 

Gnome statues in the garden add a touch of whimsy to the décor, but the legend behind their popularity is quite intriguing. It was said that a single ray of sunshine would turn a dwarf to stone. Somehow, this myth crossed with information about gnomes, and the trendy garden gnomes statues came to be. Since gnomes are consider helpful to one’s garden, placing gnome statues there is tradition in a well-tended garden.

 

Gnomes are actually a dwarfish race of earth spirits. They are the guardians of the hidden treasure of the Earth. Some legends maintain that they can be playful and mischievous and love to pull pranks on unsuspecting humans.

 

Elves were originally considered to be of a small stature as well. They were thought to be fairly playful and helpful. The legends of elves run the gamut from Santa’s toy-making helpers to the more romantic portrayal popularized by the writings of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Dwarves are said to be the possessors of two types of magical stones: one that will make the owner invisible and one that will grant the owner great strength. Dwarves were well-known in Norse myths for their wisdom. On a least one occasion the gods themselves went to the dwarves for aid, due to their cleverness.

 

Leprechauns are known to be tricksters, because greedy humans are always trying to get their legendary pots of gold. Leprechauns are Irish in origin and are thought to be cobblers.

Deity of the Day for June 24 is FORSETI (Norse)

Deity of the Day

 

FORSETI (Norse)

Patron god of the Frisians and giver of their laws. Silence had to be kept while drinking from the spring on his holy island, which he had brought forth from the rock with his axe, and beasts on the island could not be harmed. In the Old Norse sources, he appears as the son of Balder, whose hall Glitnir, “Glistening”, is pillared with gold and thatched with silver; he is also a settler of lawsuits and quarrels. Frisian: Fosite, Foseti.

Today’s Rune for Monday, June 13 is Blank/the Unknowable

Odin/ the Unknowable

 

Blank is the beginning and the end. Surrender and total trust are the only aids when phoenix is burning and rising from the ashes. The circle of life is valid for humans as it is for all of nature. Accept your fate, the work of self-change is progressing in your life.
The empty rune is a challenge for your faith.
