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.
(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.
