Today I recited my prayer to Lady Freyja strongly and with joy. I ran out of Her incense, so I offered rose petals instead. I have had good luck with these as an offering for Lady Freyja in the past. My rune draw reflected Her acceptance of my offering:
The rune on the left is Tiwaz, the rune of Tyr and justice. The middle rune is Mannaz, the rune of the self. The rune on the right is Sowilo, Lady Sunna’s rune. Justice will be done today in some form that will affect me. I will also be blessed with the gift of the Sun, strength and warmth.
Since I had fallen asleep early yesterday due to illness, I did my devotional to Lady Freyja first thing this morning after I got up. I first lit Her candle before praying to Her this prayer. I then lit a stick of incense made especially for Her from the candle before placing it in the holder. It felt good to pray to Lady Freyja first thing (even before my coffee). I may try to get up slightly earlier during the week to perform my devotionals in the morning instead of in the evening after work. (Note: I do perform Lady Sunna’s devotional in the morning on Sundays before I go to my Unitarian Universalist church service.) After I lit Her incense, I asked Her what blessings I would receive today.
Here was Lady Freyja’s answer:
The rune on the left is Hagalaz, the hail rune. It speaks of destruction and challenges that must be overcome. The middle rune is Sowilo, the sun rune. It speaks of strength and confidence. The rune on the right is Uruz, which is the aurochs or bull. It tells of the strength to manifest ideas in the real world. Taken all together, Lady Freyja says that I will face a challenge but will have the strength to overcome it. I’m not exactly sure what Uruz refers to.
This morning, shortly after I had breakfast, I honored Lady Sunna. I raised my hands above my head today and spoke Her prayer in a loud and clear voice. I was happy to praise Her on this bright and sunny morning. I then lit Her incense in offering.
While stirring my runes in my bag, I asked, “What blessings does Lady Sunna offer me today?”
Here’s my response:
The rune on the left is Sowilo, the rune of the Sun and Lady Sunna Herself! Getting this rune for Her devotional is a very good omen. The middle rune is Uruz, the rune of the aurochs (the bull). Uruz speaks of strength and manifestation. The rune on the right is Mannaz, the rune of humanity and the self. Lady Sunna is telling me that something will manifest for me in the near future, perhaps a dream or a goal.
