Devotional to Odin 3/23/17

I did this devotional in the morning.  I said my prayer joyfully and offered Lord Odin bay leaves because of their ability to produce visions.  I connected this with Odin’s vision of the runes while he hung on Yggdrasil.  However, I’m not sure it was well received based on my rune draw, which was:

3-23-17 Odin

The rune on the left is Perthro, the rune of fate.  The rune in the middle is Isa, the ice rune.  The rune on the right is Kenaz, torch (or ulcer depending on which rune poem you look at).  This draw seems really random, which leads to my thinking that the bay leaves weren’t well received.  Perhaps burning them as incense would produce better results, or I could always fall back on beer.

Devotional to Sunna, 3/12/17

Today I did my devotional after lunch.  I held my free hand up to the sky while the other held my prayer card.  I said my prayer joyfully and strongly.  After lighting a stick of incense in offering, I asked, “What blessings does Lady Sunna offer me today?”

Here was Her response:

3-12-17 Sunna

The rune on the left is Raidho, the journey rune.  It tells of literal and metaphorical journeys.  The middle rune is Isa, the ice rune.  It can refer to literal ice or the qualities of ice–beauty and danger.  The rune on the right is Algiz, the elk rune.  It generally speaks of protection.  Overall these runes are telling me that I am about to embark on a journey but I need to be careful, though I will have protection.

Devotional to Sunna 2/26/17

I’ve been trying to get into a better habit of doing more regular ritual and devotionals.  I’ve decided to do devotionals to Sunna every Sunday, Odin every Wednesday, and Freyja every Friday.  I will perform full ADF ritual once a month on the full moon.

Today was the first Sunday for my new ritual schedule.  After breakfast, I honored Sunna by reciting this prayer:

Hail the rising of the Sun.

Great Goddess, Bestower of all good things,

shining brightly You traverse the heavens

driving back the blanket of night.

Mighty Sunna, be my pace-setter.

Help me to structure my day rightly,

with time to work, and play, and pray.

Let me not lose myself in the hammering call

of all that has to be done.

Help me to follow Your rhythms,

for You are wise and practical

and Your presence blesses us all.

Hail Sunna.

(Prayer by Galina Krasskova)

I lit a stick of Sunna incense from an Etsy shop that no longer exists.  Then I drew three runes, asking, “What blessings does Lady Sunna have for me this day?”

This was my result:

The rune on the left is Isa, the ice rune.  It speaks of beauty and danger.  The middle rune is Dagaz, the day rune.  It speaks of new beginnings.  The rune on the right is Tiwaz, the rune of Tyr.  It speaks of justice and strength.

All together, I would say that if I can manage the danger foretold by Isa, I will have a new beginning that will bring strength.

Hail Sunna!

Blessings, Victoria
