Plans: study, test in class
AM Prayer: Monday we pray to Mano/Manni, god of the moon, and lighting a white candle (symbolic of the moon):
Greetings to you Mano/Manni, silver messenger on high, as you fly silently on your way reflect into our souls the glory of the High Ones that we might aspire to the realms of the gods. Bathe our world in soft brightness, and whisper to our souls of joyous realms beyond our knowing. Mano/Manni let us see the goodness within us and without us, all the nights and days of our lives. MANO/MANNI, HAIL!!
Born of fire, born of ice
Life is lived at such a price
Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
Gebo (irreversible): The gift and giver, repay gift for gift, an exchange between people or gods and the Luck that accompanies it; freely exchanged, contracts, relationships, sometimes sexual, sacrifice, and hospitality.
Laguz (U): A body of water, life ever-flowing; seen and unseen, the leek (a healing herb) the feminine, Nirdu/Njord, Nerthus, Ing Fro/Freyr and Uualburga Frouwa/Freyja, potential for life, personal growth.
Laguz (R): A dried-up body of Water, the lack of respect for the feminine, emotions out of control, fear, deception, void of growth. Offset this with extra precautions.
Outcome: So there could be emotional issues with our relationship today…
Studied early AM: almost thought I had lost a paper that was due today but through diligence…found it! I think I did okay on the test.
It didn’t take long for the Gebo/Laguz thing to kick in.
Sharon’s Charter Country for lunch: everything was fine until about her third glass of wine when she started talking shit. I just can’t believe she still harps on some of the things she does, but because she does she really gets to the point she pisses me off.
Once at home she decided she was going to take a taxi to the bowling alley. At this point I don’t give a fuck because a real pattern is starting to form: we clash, she leaves via that big yellow taxi. Yep, that’s becoming her MO; her modus operandi.
Began prep for final that’s coming up on Thursday.
In the back yard: 109F/42C…scheese!
While Audie was off doing…who the hel knows what…I got my FIRST EVER chest/face time with her cat, Pyewacket. I’ve been looking for this a long time!
Meeka has been extremely affectionate, too.
Ya know, it’s early evening, I have no idea where Audie is: I’m putting away my study material and will watch The 13th Warrior for the…hmmmmm…lemesee…oh, that’s right…lost a lot of past blogs…I’m thinking this would be…the…95th time? I’ll try to confirm that somehow…Can’t seem to. I’ll back it up one and say it’s the 94th time: that sounds correct.
She came home around 8PM. She’s drunk…or something. We don’t have a thing to say to each other. I think she’s passed out in her chair on the porch. Gebo/Laguz (R)? Yeah…
PM Prayer: The Norns:
The Norns all three are present at birth
To weave our Fate from merriment to dearth.
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld, the dark queens renowned;
Glorious ladies ‘neath the Tree, work your mysteries in us now.
That which “was” we clearly see.
That which “is” formed now in our deeds.
That which “will be”, will yet be; but cannot see.
We celebrate the Norns, the Ladies Three, for eternity.
PM Rune: none
Comments: cared for animals, Meeka inside
Alaf Sal Fena!
