A Pagan Dream

So I had a dream a couple of nights ago, and it was clearly of pagan character. The night before I had smudged the bed and hanged up my dreamcatcher.

The details are fuzzy now, but there was a cave lined with red roses, that I only could access in the company of the Tuatha dé Danann. Cernunnos was there, and there were some romantic (not sexual) moments. I put a lock of my hair by the cave so he could find me when I was away. Then there were some running and some deer and some golden lights sent by Cernunnos to me.

The cave could be the entrance to the underground to where the Tuatha dé Danann were banished, but symbolically I’m not so sure. It’s hard to figure out your own dreams. I’m good with others but not with my own.

Someone who has any ideas about my dream?

Symbols in my dream:

  • Cernunnos
  • Cave
  • Roses
  • Lock of hair
  • deer
  • golden lights

Consolation Picture

 

Since I’m kinda busy at the moment and don’t really have time to write any longer posts, here’s a consolation picture, so you know I’m still alive. ^^

Blessed Be!

Time For Some Roleplay

I know that lots of people in the pagan community loves to read fantasy, but how many of them that’s stuck in the world of (pen and paper) roleplay. I personally love it and tonight is my second time playing in Dungeons&Dragons as a feminine Warforged Artificer. More on this later, gotta run! 😀

A Little Bag of Magic

I’ve done myself a little “mojo”bag to carry around with me. I’ve gotten more interested in herbmagic and decided to try it out. I have now filled a little leather bag with Neem leaves, St. John’s Wort and Blackberry leaves. I’m going to have it with me in a pocket or a bag all the time, and see what happens. I don’t know if these really go good together, but they spoke to me and it felt like they had the properties I need in my life right now. There’s a lot of change right now, so the neem is the one I have the most of. What do you use in your little bags?

Neem

Neem is good for gaining happiness and power, can be worn for luck. It’s good when taking in changes in your life.

St. John’s Wort

It’s most known for it’s properties to sooth depression.
It’s also good for your overall health, protection, divination and love.

Blackberries Leaves

Blackberries most prominent abilities are healing, money magic and protection.

Days of Witchery: 37. A Famous Pagan/Witch!

I don’t know if this has been proved true or not, but it has been said that Viggo Mortensen (Aragon in LotR) is pagan, or “heathen”. Something that strengthens these rumours is his use of a thor’s hammer necklace as well as other assorted necklaces. It’s also been said he has some pagan tattoos. How true this really is about him being a “heathen” however I’m not so sure about. As I am swedish and we have close relations with Denmark, I know that the old religion is really strong as a national pride thing. A lot of young people have pagan or norse tattoos. They feel a bond with the religion but doesn’t necessary believe in it.

What do you think? Pagan or Not? 

Goddess of the “Week”

Hecate, goddess of magic, crossroads and also necromancy. She’s also associated with childbirth, doorways, dogs and lunar lore. she’s a triple goddess, either as three personalities or with three faces. She’s often called and prayed to as a crone goddess, although she’s often depicted as a beautiful woman and in antique days she was most often known as a virgin. The crone-association could be because of her alignment to the more dark and mystical which is associated with the crone.

She lives in the underworld and her typical symbols are paired torches, dogs and keys. She’s the only child of the titans Asteria, titan goddess of  prophetic dreams, astrology and necromancy and Perses, titan god of destruction. She is said wo also have her own children, Circe, Medea, Chalciope and Aegialeus.  Although they are only mentioned in certain texts.

36. Flower of your choice, and its magical properties.

I couldn’t find anything about my real favorite, the Linnea flower, so I chose Crocus instead. Crocus is a flower for spring and the spring equinox. It is said to bring new blooming love. A perfect flower for spring love, therefore.

And I thought I’d add a picture of the Linnea as well, look below.

Blessed Be

35. Something that I think people who don’t know much about paganism/witchcraft should know.

Phew, long title that’s probably going to be longer than the actual post… XD

What I want people who don’t know much about paganism to know, hmm.. It’s a difficult question, since I don’t know much either. But who does? I would probably like them to know foremost that we’re not satanists who run around naked in the forest, sacrificing newborn babies.

Also that most have their own beliefs, not one pagan have the same faith. What works for me can be very wrong for someone else. And that’s all I have to say about that.

What do you think?

Blessed Be

Busy, Busy

Sorry about my absence, it only shows I’m human though and have a life. I’m currently very busy in school and I’ve started on a new medication for my newly acquired diagnose of being bipolar. Life’s been tough the past couple of weeks, but I’m managing. Just a heads up that I’m still alive for ya. ^^

I’m probably going to post some more today and later this week, so don’t give up one me! ^^

If you have something you’d like me to blog about, feel free to tell me!

Cheers, Vaettr
