Hail the Summer Sun!

A Blessed Summer Solstice to everyone! I’m honoring Aset as the Solar Eye for this festival along with Sekhmet-Mut for the Egyptian pantheon. Some friends are coming over to celebrate. We’ll offer our feast (also known as dinner) to Them and other offerings such as wines, tea, pastries, cookies and candles lit upon all the shrines so they blaze as fiercely bright as the summer sky.

Since this is also Midsummer Festival for the Northern Gods of Scandinavia and other Germanic Lands, I’ll also be honoring Frigga and other Northern Gods in my home. I’ll offer wines and tea and the others can bring their offerings for Them as well.

Hail the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt!

Hail the Gods and Goddesses of the Northern Lands.

May offerings be laid upon the shrines.
May prayers be spoken and heard.
May songs be sung in praise.
May blessings flow.
May the light shine brightly, fiercely glowing in our eyes and hearts.

I’m reminded that the only time our eyes glow is when we are smiling.

May Day or Walpurgisnacht

May Day was today so I gave my Northern Gods some offerings. Today I gave a glass of Riesling Wine, water and some bread to Frigga, red wine to Odin and Riesling Wine to Freyja. I gave Idunna a glass of red wine and Bragi a glass of Chardonnay. I gave Hela some red wine as well.

And by “glass” here I mean former candle holders that I re-purposed for small shot glasses. I also moved the Odin shrine (statue, offering and necklace) to Frigga’s shrine in the kitchen. I felt compelled to do that; I’m not sure if that was due to the holiday or for some other reason. So we’ll see if I move Him back to where He was before.

Hail the ancestors! Hail the Gods and Goddesses!

Blessed May Day everyone!
