    ODIN is a major god in Norse mythology and the ruler of Asgard.

    His role, like that of many of the Norse gods, is complex. Odin is a principal member of the Æsir (the major group of the Norse pantheon) and is associated with war, battle, victory and death, but also wisdom, Shamanism, magic, poetry, prophecy and the hunt. Odin has many sons, the most famous of whom is Thor.

    He was descended from one of the earliest gods, BOR and the giantess, BESTLA. From his throne, HLIDSKJALF, in the hall’s high tower, Odin could survey all nine worlds of Norse mythology.

    His ravens, HUGIN and MUNIN, brought Odin news. He gave his food to his two wolves, GERI and FREKI, for Odin needed nothing but the sacred Mead of nourishment. Odin’s eight-legged steed was called Sleipnir. Gungnir was Odin’s spear.

    On his arm Odin wore the marvelous ring Draupnir, from which dropped 8 other rings ever 9 nights. When he rode into battle he wore an Eagle helmet and armour. When he wandered peacefully on Earth (as he often did) Odin wore a sky-blue cape and a broad brimmed hat.

    Odin had only one eye asr he gave his other to Mimir in exchange for wisdom. Odin would compose poetry for he had drunk the Mead of Poetry.

    Odin was also thought of as a magician for he was a master of the magic songs known as GALDBRAR. He knew the secrets of the RUNES which he had obtained by hanging himself from YGGDRASIL, the World Tree. For this reason he is sometimes called Lord of the Gallows.

    Odin had another palace named VALHALLA where he entertained heroes who had fallen in battle and who would help him fight the Jotun at Ragnarok, the end of the world. But Odin and most of his warriors would be killed at Ragnarok – Odin by the monster-wolf Fenrir.

    Wolf ~ Faol ~ (pronounced Foil) ~ Intuition, Learning, The Shadow

    The card shows a wolf stalking in the forest near the source of the river Findhorn in Scotland. It is the time of Faoilleach, the Wolf-month, the last fortnight of Winter and the first of Spring, generally corresponding to February. In the foreground we see snowdrops, the flower of the Druid festival of Imbolc at the beginning of February.

    Faol brings a strong sense of family, faithfulness, inner strength, and intuition. But Wolf brings learning too. Sometimes you need to cross barriers, to take risks, to go beyond the limited compass of “normal” behaviour in order to learn and grow, although crossing these boundaries may seem unattractive, even painful. You need not fear the inner power and strength you feel when you spend time alone. Come to know your deepest self and even in the darkest places you will find courage and spiritual companionship.

    Noone would have suspected a path here.
    From a distance, if someone saw you on the path they would think you just wandering in the woods.

    But there is a direction, a journey, a destination here.

    Never let people tell you you are not in the right place – just because they don't see your path, it doesn't mean you are not exactly where you are meant to be and headed in the perfect direction.

    Blessings in Shadow and Light

    Charon is the grumpy old Ferryman who transports the souls of the dead into the Underworld by taking them across the River Acheron or the River Styx. Don't thank him quite yet: this was not a free service our man Charon was offering. You could only hitch a ride with the Ferryman if you had an obolus (a coin) to give him. Otherwise, you had to wait on the banks of the River Acheron for a hundred years until Mr. Grump would take you across. Make sure you bring exact change! You also weren't welcome on Charon's boat if you hadn't had a proper burial: in that case, you'd be doomed to wander the earth as a ghost, which the ancient Greeks thought was a fate worse than death. But the Greeks wised up: they were pretty obsessed with proper burial, and – don't forget about the fee – they would always place a coin under the tongue of the recently deceased.

    Sacred Space is:

    Any Space designated specifically for the interaction of Individuals and The Divine Forces of this Cosmos, including but not limited to Sites for Celebrations, Individual's Personal Altars, and other Physical, Mental and Spiritual Spaces.

    Sacred Space can be as small as the breath taken in during prayer, as large as a cathedral or as expansive as an ocean view.

    Unless you already have a special peaceful place set up in your home I suggest you challenge yourself to create a "sacred space" somewhere within your living area. Perhaps you are fortunate enough to have an extra room you can use to retreat to when you need some time to yourself. When it is time for a child to leave the nest consider converting the newly evacuated bedroom into a sacred space rather than making it into a guest room that is only used occasionally. Do not feel as if you must wait until you have a spare room to create this space. Consider opening up any corner and building an altar there, or empty a closet of its clutter and toss a couple of pillows upon the floor for use in quiet prayer or meditation.

    Once you have chosen the space, clear the entire room where your sacred space will exist (even if only a corner is being used). A fresh coat of paint on the walls might be nice. Incorporate household rules as to who is and who is not allowed into this space. Is this to be your space alone or can other family members use it when you aren't using it? Select pleasing visuals, kinesthetics, sounds, and scents for your Sacred Space surroundings.

    Once your space is in place you will likely want to honor it by doing some type of ritual, be it Wiccan, Native American, casting a gypsy spell, giving a prayer of gratitude, or blessing it in whatever way best aligns with your belief system. You will soon find yourself drawn to this sacred space more and more as you seek the solace and restfulness it provides. You begin to wonder how you ever lived without this Sacred Space that offers much healing, comfort and warmth.

    Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill. She was the favorite child of Zeus. She had sprung fully grown out of her father's head. Her mother was Metis, goddess of wisdom and Zeus' first wife. In fear that Metis would bear a son mightier than himself. Zeus swallowed her and she began to make a robe and helmet for her daughter. The hammering of the helmet caused Zeus great pain in the form of headaches and he cried out in agony. Skilled Hephaestus ran to his father and split his skull open and from it emerged Athena, fully grown and wearing her mother's robe and helmet. She is the virgin mother of Erichthnonius.

    Athena

    Athena and her uncle Poseidon were both very fond of a certain city in Greece. Both of them claimed the city and it was decided that the one that could give the finest gift should have it. Leading a procession of citizens, the two gods mounted the Acropolis. Poseidon struck the side of the cliff with his trident and a spring welled up. The people marveled, but the water was as salty as Poseidon's sea and it was not very useful. Athena's gift was an olive tree, which was better because it gave the people food, oil and wood. Athena named her city Athens.

    Athena's companion was the goddess of victory, Nike, and her usual attribute is the owl. Athena possessed the Aegis.

    1st Moon Day info:

    Symbols: Lamp, Light.
    Characteristics: Day of creative thinking, it's holy and magical, but sometimes it last just a few minutes. It is the first day of a lunar month, the beginning of a new moon cycle. This is a very clean (pure) day. All personal dreams and thoughts that we think on the first lunar day, good or bad, have the potential to become reality, sometimes without our further intervention.

    Recommendations: Analyzing the past and your place in the world, forgiving everyone will help clean soul and get rid of many mental problems. All thoughts have to be perfectly clear. Good for thinking, planning, and visualizing final results of what we want to achieve by the end of this lunar cycle. Meditation on burning candle flame, prayers and mantras, creative visualization of what's desired as the final result, work with mental energies and thought forms is essential.

    Precautions: Avoid personal contacts and group events. Physical strain and stress, exhaustion and fatigue, especially on brain and face. Be careful of what you think and make plans of, negative thoughts may have disastrous consequences. Beginning new and important actions (business) is not recommended. Just thinking, planning and visualization. Alcohol and hot, spicy food is not recommended. Sex should be avoided.

    Moon Day 1
    A day for making plans and 'symbolic beginnings'. Do not push forward too actively in a new direction while the Moon is still invisible in the sky. Instead, try to prioritise the activity which you know will be important for you during the coming month.

    Sit down at the table and work out what needs to be done. Draw up a plan and take the very first step forward. There will be other days for everything else.
