AM Prayer: Friday, we pray to the glorious siblings, Walburga Frouwa/Freyja and Ing Fro/Freyr, and lighting a gold candle (for Freyja’s tears and Freyr’s golden boar, Gullinbursti).
Walburga Frouwa/Freyja, who could not love you? Women as their 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 WALBURGA 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!!

Holy Runes send my way
Advice on how to spend the day
AM Rune: Two Runes
Ansuz (U): In favor of the gods, Wodan/Odin specifically, Wodan/Odinic wisdom, the Athem - divine/vital breath, the force of creation, a higher source of inspiration, communication skills and divine ancestry, higher consciousness, mental stability, Wodan in his most favorable aspect.
Ansuz (R): Outside the favor of Wodan/Odin’s vital/divine breath and the ancestral/Odinic wisdom, separation from one’s true Spirit, spiritual imbalance, neurotic compulsive liar, exercise caution with communication and dealings including intelligence; a lack of inspiration, the shadow side of Wodan.
Outcome: Gotta give a HAIL to my god, Yngvi Frey, and also to Odin, the one who nurtured me into Heathenry more than 12 yrs ago.
Meeka for a before-the-crack-o-dawn walk…

Home for lunch
Back on campus to do community service hours as I assisted with the University’s blood drive in conjunction with the American Red Cross.
Oh yeah, fertility and communication…yep, works well for me! Got it!
The book situation has become a bit overwhelming; so, I moved all my heathen books out to a bookshelf in the Hof where they belong. Now there’s room for other books in the library.
PM Prayer: Wuldar/Ullr:
Wuldar/Ullr, god of ski and bow, you glide through the snow-clad forests bringing death to game and life to your people. Remind us that life feeds on life, and that the beauty of the prey is formed generation after generation by the culling ferocity of the predator. Let your Yew-bow be the great World-Yew under another guise, so that through the spirit of the hunter, we may climb its branched to ever higher levels of awareness. HAIL WULDAR/ULLR!!
PM Rune: none
