Here are the monologues from Freyja’s Aett’s first “Facets of Freya” ritual, PCon 2015. The specific facets that we covered were Freya in her Warrior/Chooser of the Slain aspect; Freya as the Bearer of Brisingamen; Freya as the Queen of Vanaheim; Freya who is the embodiment of Desire; and Freya as the one who sees the value and beauty in all things and shares that gift with us.
1. Ember: Vanadis
2. Freybjorg: Brisingamen’s Bearer
3. Meredith: Chooser of the Slain
4. Bella: Lady of Desire
5. Cara: Generous Giver
The basic script for the ritual is available here. Enjoy!
I’ve just found the coolest post! The author lists many (if not all) of the places in the Lore where Freya is mentioned. I do love a good bit of scholarship (especially if I’m not the one doing it! I’m too busy as it is.)
Long story short, I needed to reduce my blogging commitments, and Patheos has had some big changes in the way authors’ work is being used. It was time to go. Hopefully I’ll be able to get back to my personal blogging! Not being able to do as much of it as I used to has really sucked 😦
Farewell, ‘Til We Meet Again
And now, a follow-up to “Dat As” calendar: Dat Asynja!
Here is our beloved Freya:
But all of the other Goddesses kick ass, too.
I wrote a thing over at my polytheist blog, A Community of Gods Surround Me.
Time to catch up 🙂 A few things:
The Strong Roots and Wide Branches Indiegogo campaign was fully funded! We even hit our stretch goal. Yay! Almost time to fly back to Cali. It will be weird not leading an main program rituals, but I’m looking forward to finally having a polytheist shrine at PantheaCon!
There have been some changes at Patheos.com. The site was bought by a larger company and recently they laid down a new contract on all of the bloggers on the site that included being able to take bloggers’ content and change its format (for example, into a quiz). A lot of bloggers have been up in arms about it; a few have left. I will likely be leaving soon as well. I have been needing to cut down a bit on my public blogging regardless 😦 I will still be blogging at Huginn’s Heathen Hof either way.
Also, I think I will officially lay my “30Days of Njord” to rest. I did my best; time to move on.
