Goddess Vac Image
VAC is the Hindu Goddess of speech. She is described in the Rig Veda as not only speech itself, but also as truth and perception, which allow us to turn divine knowledge into words. She is said to be the mother of the Vedas, having inspired sages to write them. Vac is depicted either as a golden-skinned woman or as a cow, a symbol of nourishment. She was eventually syncretized with the Goddess Sarasvati, ruler of knowledge. Vac's name, which means "speech," is also seen as VAK or VACH, and sacred texts give her the following names (some of which she shares with other Hindu Goddesses):

Anat The Great Goddess Of The Ancient Levant

Anat The Great Goddess Of The Ancient Levant Image
ANAT IS THE ANCIENT CANAANITE GODDESS OF LOVE AND WAR...THE MAIDEN WHO LOVES BATTLE, THE VIRGIN GODDESS OF SACRIFICE WHO, LIKE THE GREAT HINDU GODDESS, KALI, SUSPENDS HANGS SEVERED HEADS ABOUT HER PERSON. HER NAME MEANS "TO ANSWER" AND "STRENGTH OF LIFE". IN ART, SHE IS OFTEN DEPICTED AS A YOUNG WOMAN WEARING A HELMET AND ARMED IN A SHIELD, BATTLE AX, AND A SPEAR. SHE WAS BELIEVED TO BE THE DAUGHTER OF EL, THE RULER OF THE COSMOS...AND THE SISTER AND CONSORT OF BA'AL, THE GOD OF STORMS AND RAIN. THE CUNIFORM TEXTS DESCRIBE HER AS A RUTHLESS AND AGGRESS GODDESS WHO DESTROYS ALL THE ENEMIES OF BA'AL. INDEED, SHE WAS AN AGGRESSIVE ADVOCATE FOR HIM, AND ON HIS BEHALF, SHE RUTHLESSLY DESTROYED THE GOD OF DROUGHT, STERILITY, AND DEATH...MOT. IT HAS ALSO BEEN SAID THAT SHE THREATENED HER OWN FATHER ON BA'AL'S BEHALF.

ANAT WAS NOT TRULY A VIRGIN IN THE WAY WE INTERPRET THE WORD. RATHER, IN THOSE DAYS, A VIRGIN WAS A YOUNG, MARRIAGEABLE WOMAN WHO HAD YET TO BEAR A CHILD. IN FACT, SHE ACTUALLY HAD A FIERCE APPETITE FOR SEX AND BLOOD; HER FOLLOWERS PETITIONED HER FOR BOTH WAR AND FERTILITY. AND, AS THE GODDESS OF SEXUALITY, ANAT WAS CONSIDERED TO BE ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL OF ALL THE DEITY; AS A FERTILITY GODDESS, SHE PROTECTED THE PEOPLE, ANIMALS AND CROPS.

IT WAS IN EGYPT'S LATE BRONZE AGE, WHEN SHE BECAME AND EGYPTION WAR GODDESS, THAT SHE ATTAINED HER GREATEST STATUS. THE EGYPTIANS REGARDED HER AS THE DAUGHTER OF RA AND THE WIFE OF SET. RAMESES II ADOPTED HER AS HIS OWN PERSONAL GUARDIAN WHEN HE WENT INTO BATTLE, AND AFTER HE RESTORED TANIS, HE EXPANDED HER SHRINE.

ANAT IS CELEBRATED IN THE SPRING AND AT HARVEST FESTIVALS. IN TIME, MANY OF HER MYTHS AND ATTRIBUTES WERE ASSIMILATED INTO THE GODDESSES ASHERAH AND ASTARTE.

"EMPOWERMENT"

"I AM LOVE; I AM LOVER."I AM FREEDOM; I AM FREE."I AM PART OF THE BEAUTY"THAT LIVES ALL AROUND ME."MY FEET ARE FIRM UPON THE EARTH."MY HANDS RISE TOWARD THE SUN."I AM STRONG IN MY POWER"AND WITH ALL I AM ONE."

Horned Dandelion Alraun  

Posted by Stella Clark in , , , , ,

Horned Dandelion Alraun Image
"Horned Dandelion Alraun"

An alraun is a herbal root found in human form, or carved to be, and used as a magical talisman. The most famous of such roots being Mandrake, but many other roots have been used in history as well including bryony, dandelion, thistle, as well as tree roots. Don't snub humbler roots than Mandrake (whose reputation was significantly blown up by medieval herbalists to charge a large sum). Did you know the oft-hated dandelion belongs to the dark goddess Hecate and has powers of divination and summoning spirits?

In Germanic folklore, it was the local village wise woman who created alrauns. The word "alraun" itself is derived from "rune" which is an old Germanic and Celtic term for mystery, magic, and secrets (1). In 1700s Germany there were witches who called themselves Alrune believing it was the name of a goddess of the crossroads (3). Once an alraun is made it belongs solely to the maker or the receiver and is not to be seen by any other soul. It was once common in both Pagan and early Christian times for alrauns to be passed on within families at the owner's time of death. The alraun was considered the protector of the family. Alrauns, being made from chthonic roots, provide a link to the ancestors and deities of the underworld. They act as confidantes, advisers, seers, as well as familiar spirits. Alrauns are called upon for love, fertility, help during childbirth, divination, good health, prophecy, protection, as well as cursing and harm.

HOW TO MAKE AN ALRAUN

YOU WILL NEED:


* "A digging stick or gardening gloves"
* "A libation or offering"
* "A sharp ritual knife"

* A wand, staff, or a sigil powder

It is best to craft an alraun in winter or spring as that is the best time for transplanting without shocking the plant. To make a plant root alraun, seek out your intended plant after the new moon and draw a circle around it in the dirt with your finger, wand, or with a sigil powder. Let the plant know you are a witch and make your intent for it to come across strongly so it readily agrees. Then carefully dig up the whole plant without breaking any of the roots or bruising any leaves. If there are any separate root offshoots, carefully break them off and leave them behind leaving a live plant in place of the one you took. If not, leave a suitable offering. Some plants prefer whisky, wine, or mead while others may simply prefer water or a physical object. Pour the libation or bury the offering in the hole you've made without looking and walk away without looking back.

"Fresh Dandelion Roots"

You can either take the live plant home or take it to where you will be transplanting it. If your root doesn't already have a human shape to it, carve it into the opposite sex of yourself with your ritual knife. It can also be carved into a hermaphrodite. Be careful not to remove any of the small roots at this time and don't over carve the root or you will kill it. A rough semblance is good enough. Now it is time to transplant. It is best to plant an alraun near a crossroad, but if this isn't possible your garden or a pot will do (2). Water the plant after transplanting and leave it be for three weeks to a month or more. If the original leaves die, do not despair, it is because all its energy is going back to the root to heal from your carving - the root is still alive and growing. Once a week, before you dig it up again, feed it either a mixture of milk and honey or milk and a drop of your own blood if you will be keeping it for yourself.

On the next dark moon, dig up your root, and again leave an offering behind in the hole without looking. Now you can take your root home and wash it. Remove any excess hairs or growths that distort its human shape. Loosely wrap it in a cloth of natural fibre inside a paper bag and leave this somewhere warm and dry. In a month you should have a perfectly dried alraun. Wrap it in black, red, or white linen, wool, or silk and place it in a small box. The cloth is its funeral shroud and the box its coffin. Hide the alraun away in a dark place until you call upon it. When you do, offer it milk and honey, or wine, or blood depending on your purpose. Treat the alraun as a beloved child or family member. Speak to it sweetly. It is incredibly dangerous to throw one away or sell an alraun for less than you bought it for. It is a sentient familiar spirit and not a curio to be tossed aside. The alraun has the power to bless or curse its owner so think carefully on your intent before making one.

Goddess Eveningstar  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Eveningstar Image
EVENINGSTAR is the Wakaranga Goddess of animal life. She is the sister of Morningstar, Goddess of plant life, who had been sent to earth to be the wife of the only man who had been created, Moon. Morningstar was only allowed to stay with Moon for two years, and after she returned to the heavens, Moon was very lonely. The Creator promised to send him a new wife, Eveningstar, but warned Moon that if he accepted, he would only live for another two years. Moon was so lonely that he agreed, and Eveningstar came to him. After they made love, Eveningstar gave birth to cows, sheep, and other farm animals. After the second time they made love, she birthed the birds of the sky and the animals of the plains, such as antelope. After the third time, she gave birth to human children.

At this point, the Creator told Moon that he should not sleep with Eveningstar again, but Moon ignored him. This time, Eveningstar gave birth to lions, snakes, scorpions, and other dangerous animals. This scared Moon into leaving Eveningstar alone, and he turned his attentions to the daughters they had, who had grown into beautiful women. Eveningstar became jealous, and sent one of her snakes to bite Moon. Moon grew sick, and soon the land grew sick as well and the people were faced with famine. Blaming their suffering on Moon, they killed him and threw his body into the ocean. Moon's body rose out of the ocean and traveled to the heavens, where he continues to search for his first love, Morningstar.

Goddess Freyja  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Freyja Image
FREYJA (pronounced FRAY-ah) is the Norse Goddess of love and fertility. She is the chief Goddess of the Vanir, who were mainly fertility Gods. Freyja is similar to Frigg in that she is a love and fertility Goddess, but where Frigg's role was mainly as wife and mother, Freyja is seen more as a lover, the symbol of sexuality and passion. She was married to the God 'Odr, who is mentioned only briefly in Norse myths. He seems to have left her for a long journey and she searched the earth for him, crying tears that turned to gold.

Freyja is also Goddess of war, battle, death, and magic. She heads the Valkyries, and half of the chosen slain warriors she takes to her palace, Sessr'umnir, in particular the female warriors, bards, and craftsmen. Freyja also taught the mysteries of magic to Odin. She possesses many magical items, including a cloak that allows her to turn into a hawk or falcon and a golden necklace called Br'isingamen, and she travels either by riding her golden boar, Hildisvini, or in her chariot pulled by her sacred cats.

Freyja's name means "Lady," and is also seen as FRAUJA, FREA, FREIA, FREIJA, FREJA, FREO, FREYA, FREYJU, FRIIA, FRIJA, FR"oA, FR"oE, FROUWA, FROWA, FROYA, FRoYA, FRUE, and FRYA. She is also known as VANADIS (Goddess of the Vanir), MARD"oLL (sea-bright), H"oRN (flax, from her golden hair), GEFN (giver), and S'yR (sow, from her role as fertility Goddess). Epithets for Freyja include:

Greek Nymph Amaltheia  

Posted by Stella Clark

Greek Nymph Amaltheia Image
AMALTHEIA (pronounced a-mal-THEE-uh) is a Greek Nymph, who, according to some sources, fed the infant Zeus with the milk of a goat. Other sources say that she actually was the goat. As a nymph, she was the wife of King Melisseus of Crete, and mother of the nymphs Adrasteia and Ida, who helped her to nurse Zeus. Aside from feeding Zeus, Amaltheia also suspended him in a cradle from the branch of a tree, so that he could not be found in heaven, on earth, or in the sea. When her goat broke off one of its horns, she filled it with herbs and fruit and gave it to the baby--the first horn of plenty or cornucopia. Zeus later placed the goat and its horn among the stars, as the constellations Capra and Capricornus. Amaltheia's name, which means either "tender goddess" or "she who nourishes," is also seen as AMALTHEA or AMALTHIA.

Gabija The Lithuanian Goddess Of Fire  

Posted by Stella Clark

Gabija The Lithuanian Goddess Of Fire Image
"GABIJA" IS A SPIRIT OF FIRE IN LITHUANIAN MYTHOLOGY, A PRIMORDIAL FIRE GODDESS. SHE IS THE GODDESS OF THE FAMILY BONDS WHO PROTECTS THE HOME AND FAMILY, BRINGS FERTILITY AND HAPPINESS, AND STIMULATES CATTLE AND AND THE GROWTH OF THE CROPS. AS THE "MISTRESS OF THE HEARTH," SHE IS FAR FROM THE PASSIVE MAIDEN ARCHETYPE OF EITHER "VESTA" OR "HESTIA". FIRE WAS ONE OF THE MOST SACRED ELEMENTS TO THE LITHUANIANS; HENCE, "GABIJA" IS LOOKED UPON AS THE FLAMING SYMBOL OF ALL THAT WHICH IS TRULY ALIVE, A DEITY AND POWER THAT MUST BE TREATED WITH THE UTMOST RESPECT, FOR THE FIRE WAS BELIEVED TO BE THE CONNECTION WITH THE WORLD OF THE ANCESTORS WHO CONTINUED TO LIVE IN THE HEARTH FLAME.

IN PRE-CHRISTIAN TIMES, THE LITHUANIANS HAD COMMUNAL SACRED FIRES WHICH WERE TENDED TO BY PRIESTESSES, BUT THE LAST LITHUANIAN FIRE WAS EXTINGUISHED IN 1413. THEN, THE TRADITION WAS MOVED INTO THE HOME AS THE "GABIJA", AND, BECAUSE ONLY WOMEN COULD CARE FOR HER, EVERY EVENING THE MISTRESS OF THE HOUSE CAREFULLY TENDED THE FIRE AND PRAYED TO IT TO ENSURE THE FAMILY'S GOOD FORTUNE. PEOPLE FED HER BY OFFERING BREAD AND SALT. SOMETIMES A BOWL OF CLEAN WATER WOULD BE LEFT NEAR THE HEARTH SO THAT SHE COULD WASH HERSELF. PROFANING FIRE IN ANY WAY WAS SACRILEGE, AND THERE IS MUCH FOLKLORE THAT DESCRIBES THE FATE OF THOSE WHO OFFENDED THE GODDESS. SOMETIMES, IT IS SAID, SHE WOULD "GO FOR A WALK" BURNING THE HOUSE.

THE SACRED CULT OF GABIJA WITH ITS PREHISTORIC ROOTS HAS SURVIVED TO THE PRESENT, AND THE HEARTH FIRE IS THE FOCUS DURING EVERY TRADITIONAL BALTIC HOLIDAY...A FIRE IS LIT, WHETHER SUCH IS IN AN ALTAR OR BONFIRE, OR BY CANDLE FOR ALL FAMILY RITUALS AND RITES OF PASSAGE. EACH RITUAL BEGINS WITH INVOKING HER PRESENCE WITHOUT WHICH RITES WOULD BE POSSIBLE. THIS FIRE GODDESS IS STILL HELD IN REVERENCE, AND, LIKE" BRIGID", SHE HAD SPECIAL FESTIVALS AT THE BEGINNING OF FEBRUARY DEDICATED TO THE HER AND THE RENEWAL OF FIRE.

Goddess Devaki  

Posted by Stella Clark

Goddess Devaki Image
DEVAKI is a Hindu mother Goddess. She was the daughter of Devaka and wife of King Vasudeva. Devaki's cousin, King Kamsa, had been told by a prophet that Devaki's eighth son would kill him. Kamsa wanted to kill Devaki outright, but instead imprisoned her and her husband and killed their children as they were born, six sons in all. When Devaki became pregnant with her seventh son, the baby was miraculously transferred to the womb on Vasudeva's other wife, Rohini, and was named Balarama when he was born. Devaki's eighth son was placed in her womb by Lord Vishnu, and he was secreted away from the prison before Kamsa learned of his existence--this child was Lord Krishna. He grew up in close proximity to his brother Balarama, and eventually fulfilled the prophecy and killed Kamsa. He then freed his mother and father from their prison.

The Many Faces Of Brigid  

Posted by Stella Clark

The Many Faces Of Brigid Image
THERE ARE COUNTLESS TALES THAT SPEAK OF BRIGID--OF THE GODDESS, OF THE SAINT, OF THE DEITY--AND SHE IS KNOWN BY MANY NAMES INCLUDING ST. BRIGID WHO WAS PERHAPS THE MOST POWERFUL RELIGIOUS FIGURE IN IRISH HISTORY. THERE IS:

"BRIGHID, BRIDE--SCOTLAND"

"BRID, BRIGIT, BRIDGIT, BRIGANTIA--ENGLAND"

"BRIGAN, BRIGANDO--GAUL"

"BRINGANDU, BRIGANDA"

TODAY WE WILL LOOK AT THE BRIGID OF MYTH AND THE GODDESS BRIGID.

THE BRIGID OF IRISH MYTH WAS ONE OF THE TUATHA DE DANANN. SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF THE DAGDA, THE GREAT FATHER GOD OF THE PAGAN IRISH. YET, SHE WAS ALSO KNOWN AS THE MOTHER OF THE THREE GODS OF DANU...WHICH MOST LIKELY REFLECTS ON AN EARLIER MATRIFOCAL TRADITION. IT IS SAID THAT SHE WAS BORN AT THE EXACT MOMENT OF DAYBREAK, AND HER MOTHER WAS STANDING IN THE DOORWAY WITH ONE FOOT INSIDE AND ONE FOOT OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE. IMMEDIATELY, BRIGIT'S HEAD WAS SURROUNDED BY FIRE, AND SHE ROSE INTO THE SKY WITH THE SUN RAYS OF FIRE BEAMING FROM HER HEAD.

IN THE MYTHOLOGICAL HISTORY OF THE TUATHA DE DANANN, BRIGIT WAS NOT ONLY THE DAUGHTER OF THE DAGDA, BUT ALSO THE WIFE OF HIS ENEMY, THE FOMARIAN KING, BRES. TOGETHER THEY PRODUCED THREE SONS, AND EACH OF THESE SONS BECAME A FAMOUS WARRIOR. NOW, EVEN THOUGH BRIGIT AND HER HUSBAND CAME FROM WARRING TRIBES, THEY HOPED THAT THEIR MARRIAGE WOULD END THE ENMITY BETWEEN THEIR KIN, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, IT HAD NO EFFECT, AND A MAJOR BATTLE BETWEEN THE TWO FAMILIES WAS ERUPTING...AND IT WAS ACTUALLY BRIGIT'S ELDEST SON WHO STRUCK THE FIRST BLOW. AS THE WARRIOR FELL TO HIS DEATH, HE MANAGED ONE LAST BLOW, SLAYING BRIGIT'S SON, RUANDAN.

BRIGIT'S GRIEF WAS SO STRONG AND HER LAMENTATIONS WERE SO LOUD THAT THEY WERE HEARD THROUGHOUT IRELAND ON THAT DAY. THE TWO SIDES, HEARING HER MOURNFUL CRIES, DROPPED THEIR WEAPONS AND MADE PEACE WITH EACH OTHER. IT IS IRONIC THAT IT WAS THE DEATH OF A SON THAT ENSURED BRIGID'S ROLE AS A GODDESS OF PEACE AND UNITY. THE GODDESS BRIGID WAS BORN FROM THE 'KEENINGS' OF A LOVING MOTHER.

"GODDESS SYMBOLS OF BRIGID"GENERAL: FIRE, HEARTH, LIGHT, CANDLES, SUNRISE, SPRINGS, WELLS, POETRY, THRESHOLDS AND DOORWAYS, BELLS, CLOAK, IMBOLC, ST. BRIGID'S CROSS"

"ANIMALS: LAMBS AND EWES, DAIRY COWS, BEES, OWLS, SERPENTS AND ALL HIBERNATING ANIMALS."

"PLANTS: OAK TREE, CORN, OATS, SAGE, SHAMROCK, RUSHES, STRAW, ACORNS, AND ALL FIELD FLOWERS."

"COLORS: WHITE, YELLOW, BLACK, AND RED"

THE GODDESS BRIGID IS THE IRISH GODDESS OF FIRE AND WAS ASSOCIATED WITH THE RITUAL FIRES OF PURIFICATION IN ANCIENT TIMES. SHE WAS HONORED AS A TRIPLE GODDESS:

"1. THE FIRE OF POETIC INSPIRATION: MUSE, POETRY, LEARNING, WITCHCRAFT, PROPHECY"2. THE FIRE OF THE FORGE: TRADITIONALY SMITHCRAFTING"3. THE FIRE OF THE HEARTH: HEALER, MEDIUM, MIDWIFE, FERTILITY"

THE GODDESS BRIGID WAS A WARRIOR, A SMITH, A HEALER, AND A POET. IN HER SMITH GUISE, SHE IS WHERE THE FIRE MEETS IRON...FORGING METAL FROM THE GROUND. SHE IS A FIRE GODDESS WHO IS BLESSED BY THE HEAVENLY FLAMES, AND SHE LIGHTS THE FIRES IN THE HEARTHS OF THE POOR PEOPLE JUST AS HER FOLLOWERS KEPT A PERPETUAL FIRE RUNNING AT HER SANCTUARY.

"A BRIGID RITUAL FOR HOPE AND INSPIRATION"

"TAKE SOME TIME FOR YOURSELF IN A WUIET AND PERFUMED SPACE. SELECT A NEW WHILTE CANDLE AND HOLDER. SIT COMFORTABLY AND MEDITATE ON THE FLAME. CLOSE YOUR EYES, SLOWLY, AND ALLOW THE FLAME TO CONNECT WITH YOUR INNER FLAME AND YOUR FIERY STRENGTH FROM BRIGID. SLOWLY OPEN YOUR EYES, BREATHE SOFTLY, AND FEEL BLESSE FOR THE COMING YEAR."
