A.M. Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Uualburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Uualburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women admire you for your own inner glory and highest attainment as the self-made woman, men for your beauty, passion and strength. Praise to you for the gift of life, and for the love that makes life worth living. Remind us always that it is the strong who love the best and the most, and that only the mighty can truly be gentle. Fill our lives with passion and lust that we may live our lives to the fullest. HAIL UUALBURGA FROUWA/FREYJA!!
Ing Fro/Freyr, you are the god of “Ar”, the good harvest and prosperity: you are indeed the lusty enlarger of life. When the day to day wears us down, remind us of pleasures and joys. Help us recall the wonderful excesses that brought our lives into being and which sustain the human spirit during good times and bad. Without you, there would be no life and certainly little delight. Thank you, Ing Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. ING FRO/FREYR, 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
A.M. Rune: Ansuz (R): OHG: Ans: Outside the favor of Uuodan/Odin’s vital/divine breath and the ancestral wisdom, exercise caution with communication and dealings including intelligence; a lack of inspiration, the dark side of Uuodan. Offset this with extra precautions.
Outcome: Well that certainly didn’t take long: see yesterday’s entry
I made the attempt to start taking the down Yule lights. I got as far as rolling up the extension chord then the bitter cold drove me back into the warm house.
Did nothing but hole up all day
My brother surprised us with a visit. We were still jammie-ized
It was just a kick-back kind of day…all day: practically boring…
P.M. Prayer: Ostara/Idun:
Ostara/Idun, keeper of the golden apples of youth, keep us young inside. When we are starving for laughter, hungry for the lightness that comes with having few years on our shoulders, slip us one of those gleaming fruits that we may see the world through youthful eyes. Let springtime be in our steps, love in our hearts and a song on our lips. Change us to the core! Fill us with optimism and dreams for the future. HAIL OSTARA/IDUN!!!
P.M. Rune: none
