the valar | requested by @existentialposer

The Great among these spirits the Elves name the Valar, the Powers of Arda, and Men have often called them gods. The Lords of the Valar are seven; and the Valier, the Queens of the Valar, are seven also. These were their names in the Elvish tongue as it was spoken in Valinor, though they have other names in the speech of the Elves in Middle-earth, and their names among Men are manifold. The names of the Lords in due order are: Manwe, Ulmo, Aule, Orome, Mandos, Lorien, and Tulkas; and the names of the Queens are: Varda, Yavanna, Nienna, Este, Vaire, Vana, and Nessa. Melkor is counted no longer among the Valar, and his name is not spoken upon Earth.

hey there! I literally just stumbled upon your blog and your practise seems very intriguing and appealing! I've never heard of the faery queens, but I'm keen to learn more! Could you expand my knowledge or point me in the direction of more information? Thanks a bunch, dearie! 🌿🌟

Hello! 😊  I have a few resources on my blog here, and you can always search specific topics online, such as the Tuatha De Danann, Seelie and Unseelie, well known queens such as The Morrigan and Nicnevin, etc. For me, knowing the Queens can mean basing my recipes and activities around the current Court, and asking for their blessings.

Also, here are some books you might want to check out!
