Heathen New Year

As Sól’s light falls on the final day,
A year on Miðgarðr is washed away,
A brand new chance to show Óðinn my deed,
In Yggdrasil’s branches a new year takes seed,
Hail Frey, prosperity and virility,
Hail Freyja, lust and fertility,
Hail Þórr, strength and protection,
Hail Óðinn, wisdom and intention,
Hail Skaði, valour and redemption,
Hail to the powers as the days start to lengthen.

**When contacting spirits/deities, please take the necessary precautions (cleanse the room, salt circles, ground yourself.) At ANY time where you feel like the reading is out of your control or that you are in danger, politely end the reading and cleanse your space once again. Be safe, know your limits, and don’t feel bad for politely declining a deity/spirit in which you feel like you can’t serve with where you are at this point in your life. 

Make Me Choose ; Apollo or Artemis

In the classical period of Greek mythology, Artemis was often described as the daughter of Zeus and Leto, and the twin sister of Apollo. She was the Hellenic goddess of the hunt, wild animals, wilderness, childbirth, virginity and protector of young girls, bringing and relieving disease in women; she often was depicted as a huntress carrying a bow and arrows. The deer and the cypress were sacred to her.

ran · goddess of the sea 

In Norse Mythology, Rán is a Vanir sea goddess with an unpredictable and dangerous personality. Rán is married to Ægir, a sea-giant, and together they have nine daughters, who are waves. However, that marriage didn’t stop Ran from having all sorts of affairs. She has a net with which she tries to capture men who ventured out on the sea. The sea was also referred to as “Rán’s road”.
She is also associated with the practice of sailors bringing gold with them on any voyage, so that if they drowned while at sea, Ran would be pleased by their gift.

hel · goddess of the dead and the underworld 

Hel, in Norse mythology, originally the name of the world of the dead; it later came to mean the goddess of death. Hel was one of the children of the trickster god Loki, and her kingdom was said to lie downward and northward. It was called Niflheim, or the World of Darkness, and appears to have been divided into several sections, one of which was Náströnd, the shore of corpses. There stood a castle facing north; it was filled with the venom of serpents, in which murderers, adulterers, and perjurers suffered torment, while the dragon Nidhogg sucked the blood from their bodies. Mention is made in an early poem of the nine worlds of Niflheim. It was said that those who fell in battle did not go to Hel but to the god Odin, in Valhalla, the hall of the slain.
