normally attributed to the (rather obscure) fertility goddess, Saeter (more correctly Saturn), we pray to Sibba/Sif and to Fro/Freyr, lighting green candles (for fertility):
Sibba/Sif let us see you in all the growing things that sustain our lives. Help us look beyond the packaging and promotion, to the richness of the Earth from which all bounty comes. When ordinary eyes see only corn, let us see your golden hair hid in its silk. When others see only bread, let us see the grain, beyond that, your smile and laughter. Feed our might and main, Holy Sibba/Sif, that we may do our work in the world. HAIL SIBBA/SIF!!
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, Fro/Freyr, for the rushing life spirit and the eternal play of passions that make our lives fruitful. FRO/FREYR, HAIL!!

Good calm day!
Work was okay, I guess. During shift my interview at Spirit AeroSystems came
up again and how they were expecting a woman. That brought up in me everything
I have wrestled with all my life in regards to my birth name. I guess it still
frustrates me to no end and it was evident in this conversation. There were two
female births: Jewel Faye and Beth Ann: fine (Jewel Faye deceased). Then there
were males: Michael Lynn, Dennis Boyd and Steven Ray: all reasonable male names.
Why the fuck…WHY THE FUCK did mother have to name me, a male, Caroll
(perception of a female name). That wasn’t bad enough, but she had to carry it
further: Caroll Dee! She couldn’t have placed an “n” on the end of Dee to
soften the blow: NO! I have often figured this debacle had some kind of
psychological satisfaction. Jewel Faye, first born of the family, killed in a
car accident at 3 months old. The comes Mike, Dennis and Steve. I can imagine
mom was desperate have her girl back so I got the label. After me, THEN comes
my sister. The Mennonite Deaconesses at the hospital wanted mom to name her
Carol, for a Christmas carol. Well, a little too late for that! Mother and I
went round and round about this before she died. Mom just said she thought it
was a pretty name. Well DAMN! Jep, Berkana (R) came screaming at me! It
brought up some very unpleasant memories.

PM Prayer: Paltar/Baldr
Blameless Paltar/Baldr, shining god, let your goodness and your reconciliation smooth our paths on Earth. When our days here are over, light up death’s darkness with the promise of rebirth. Help is to avoid evil, and seek the good. Inspired by you, we will keep our reputations spotless that our lives be proclaimed a victory of the Spirit, and our leaving this life a tragedy. PALTAR/BALDR HAIL!
