Today (June 13), beginning at sundown, will coincide with the fifth day of Skirophorion
The fifth day of every month is regarded as a holy time, sacred to the Erinyes/Euminides (Alekto, Megaira and Tisphone), and Horkos (Oath)
"On a fifth day, they say, the Erinyes assisted at the birth of Horkos whom Eris bare to trouble the forsworn."
~ Hesiod, Works and Days
Pythagoreans associated the number five with Dike – goddess of justice, fair judgement and rights established by custom and law, so it is advisable to honour her on this day as well
"We have heard from the Pythagoreans that the number five is number of Dike, and among them are told the causes of this..as She punishes all those who stray from the divine law, as told by Plato (Laws IV, 716a)."
~ Scholia to Hesiod, Erga, 802-804
In Norse mythology, the wife of Odin and mother of Balder. She was a promoter of marriage and of fertility. In Icelandic stories, she tried to save her son’s life but failed. Some myths depict her as the weeping and loving mother, while others stress her loose morals. Frigg was known to other Germanic peoples as Frija (in German) and Frea; her name survives in English in the word Friday.

Geri and Freki – Odin's Wolves
It was once told that Odin and his brothers created the world. In loneliness while traveling, Odin created the First Wolves, Geri and Freki, to accompany him in his travels and to be partners in the hunt. The wolves became Odin's special companions. Wherever Odin went, the wolves went with him.
Odin traveled all over the world with the wolves. This explains why there are wolves in so many places in the world. As they traveled with Odin, Geri and Freki left their grown offspring behind to enjoy the riches of the New World. Geri and Freki cured Odin's loneliness. The way the wolves celebrated life filled Odin with joy.
Odin also created two Ravens, Hugin and Munin to help scout ahead as they traveled. Hugin and Munin were very good at finding game and were always hungry, giving meaning to the word "ravenous."
Hugin and Munin were not able to take game by themselves, but teamed up with Geri and Freki they were well fed. To this day, you will often find ravens in the company of their friends the wolves. The ravens still scout out the game for the wolves and the wolves leave a share of the meal for the ravens in thanks.
When Odin created the humans Embla and Ask (from whom all humans sprang), he instructed them to learn from the wolf The wolf could teach them how to care for their family, how to cooperate with each other in the hunt for food, and how to protect and defend their families.
The wolf gave much wisdom and skill to the early humans. In the old times the wolf was respected. To be Wolf Clan (Ulfhednar) was a great honor. A Wolf Brother.
Odin was said to have sired part human children known as the Volsungs/Wulfsungs (the double meanings in Old Norse/Old Germanic are Wolfs Young and Wolf's Song) who were great warriors. There are entire sagas of their lies.
The Volsungs were also said to be shape shifters. They were able to turn into wolves in battle and use this to their advantage, or at times to run with the wolves in the forest for the sheer joy and freedom of being a wolf. These are the Volsungs of the legends.
It is said that Odin's death was caused by a wolf, and that this death was the payment for oaths broken and deceptions done. This was an honorable death that Odin would have liked.

The Newton Stone – is an ancient pillar stone, found in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The stone contains two inscriptions, one identified as Ogham, but the second script has never been positively identified.
The Newton Stone has been known since 1804 when the Earl of Aberdeen George Hamilton-Gordon discovered the stone by the opening up of a new road near Pitmachie Farm, Aberdeenshire, after local shephards told him of a "curious monument" that sat there. The stone was later taken and planted in the garden of Newton House, in the Parish of Culsamond about a mile north of Pitmachie Farm by the antiquarian Alexander Gordon, alongside another stone found close by the Newton Stone at Pitmachie. George Hamilton-Gordon was indebted by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland for writing a letter describing the original position of the Newton Stone (and the other stone) since Alexander Gordon removed them from their original position which archeologists and historians at the time thought could have been of significance. Before being moved to the garden of Newton House and subsequently becoming known as the "Newton Stone", the stone was known by locals as the "Pitmachie Stone"
John Pinkerton first published the engravings of the Newton Stone in his Inquiry into the History of Scotland (1814) yet made no attempt to decipher the unknown script. George Hamilton-Gordon's son Arthur Gordon first took these published engravings to Cambridge University in 1849 and scholars first took an interest in attempting to decipher the unknown text. Various different theories regarding the decipherment or identification of the unknown script have been proposed since 1850's.
In 1864 antiquaran Alexander Thomson read a paper to the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland addressing six claims of alleged decipherment theories of the Newton Stone:
Phoenician (Rev. Nathan Davis)
Celtic (Dr. Padre)
Latin (Thomas Wright)
Greek (Constantine Simonides)
Egyptian Arabic (Dr. J. E Brown)
Hebrew-Bactrian (Dr. George Moore)
Richard Rolt Brash published a Gaelic interpretation of the Ogham part in 1873.
Laurence Waddell (1924) offered a detailed decipherment as Phoenician.
