“Sometimes a wild god comes to the table. He is awkward and does not know the ways Of porcelain, of fork and mustard and silver. His voice makes vinegar from wine And brings the dead to life.
“ - Tom Hirons
Keep your fortunes from fortune cookies!
-put them on your altar as either prayers or offerings.
-burn them as spells
-turn them into Sigils.
-Sit them with an incense burner, so when the smoke flows throughout the room, the intent of the fortune goes with it.
Honestly there’s something deeply moving about reading something about a deity and feeling it resonate in your soul, and suddenly it’s as if this ancient being is there with you, helping you breathe, and you want nothing more than to lay under the stars and feel that presence.
Cernunnos is the conventional name given in Celtic studies to depictions of the “horned god” of Celtic polytheism. Cernunnos was a Celtic god of fertility, life, animals, wealth, and the underworld. The name itself is only attested once, on the 1st-century Pillar of the Boatmen, but he appears all over Gaul, and among the Celtiberians. Cernunnos is depicted with the antlers of a stag, sometimes carries a purse filled with coin, often seated cross-legged and often associated with animals and holding or wearing torcs, are known from over 50 examples in the Gallo-Roman period, mostly in north-eastern Gaul.
