Theodish Thoughts

Musings on Theodism, religion, mythology, history, and contemporary Heathenry

New Moon October 2018

Little in the way of change from last month. The wind rising is such a standard effect at this point that I’m almost surprised it isn’t mentioned someplace in the lore.

Although fun fact having nothing to do with the offering, in researching the ON vindr in Cleasby-Vigfusson (because of course I would), I discovered that there exists a thing called a “wind-egg”. It’s a fully-formed egg that doesn’t have a yoke. Neat!

Nothing on a gust of wind being associated with land-wights, seidr, or anything like that, though, except for the seidr practice of raising storms, which I don’t think is quite the same thing.

At this point, I’m only going to post about the New Moon offering if there’s something particularly interesting or new to report.

A Personal Note

Although I’ve been eschewing active participation in Heathen groups, events, and group practices for many months now, I just formally left the last Heathen group to which I still belonged. It was a fairly easy decision, as it was clear that the group had changed radically in its mission and purpose since I originally founded it.

My plan to concentrate inwards, and focus on my own practice and researches, is unaffected, except perhaps in the sense that I have one less distraction in that facet of my life. It’s a liberating feeling.

I don’t rule out some sort of group activity at some point in the future, but it’ll be very carefully done.
