New Tarot reading options available at my shop!

I’ve added a number of brand new Tarot spread options to my online store, and thought I’d share the new additions! To purchase one, just click over to my store; the images below are links to the listings. There are also a couple of new deck options! And after I noticed earlier today that there…

Odin and Herbs

(Previously published post from 2013) The Norse myths don’t really mention any sort of connection between Odin and herbs (unless you count the mistletoe that figures into the tale of Balder’s death) but the 10th century 2nd Merseburg Charm (written in Old High German) draws a connection between the continental Germanic Wodan and healing (in it, Wodan…

Still available: Elemental Beeswax Votives

Sharing these beauties here because there’ve been no takers for them yet and they were only posted to the old blog. They are scented with pure essential oils, and I have to tell you guys,  I’ve been burning a few of them myself and the scent throw is actually PHENOMENAL for beeswax. (Plus, you get…

Design your own soap or incense

That’s right–design your own! Because for those who aren’t on my email list or may have missed the email, Custom Incense and Custom Soap are back!! Not seeing exactly what you want in any of my incense scent blends? Design your own–or have me do it for you! With this listing, you can: 1. Order…

Some common misconceptions about Odin

(Previously published post from 2015, slightly reworked with a bit added at the end for 2017.) I have been putting off writing this because I really, really dislike telling anyone they are making a mistake in how they approach a particular deity, that their experiences and perceptions about a deity are incorrect, or in general that they are “doing…

Odin, Woden, and Wodan: a Comparison

(Previously published post from 2015.) Like many of His devotees, I mostly regard Odin, Woden, and Wodan as basically the same deity seen through different cultural lenses. However, the cultural lens DOES give each one a distinct “flavor”, so to speak, to the point where, if you wanted to, you could regard Them as being separate but…

Odin Ritual Perfume is back!!

Now available in my shop: Formulated in honor of the Norse God Odin, this blend evokes the deep woods through which the Wanderer loves to ramble. A base of rich oakmoss is layered with plant essences native to the northern forest, finishing with spiritually elevating sandalwood and a pinch of black pepper. This scent is…

Coming Soon!

It’s taking the packages longer to get here than I’d like, plus two essential oil bottles have arrived broken and awaiting replacement, while a third was not what I ordered and needs to be returned. So it will likely be at least another full week yet before I can go live with this. BUT I’m…

And so, here we are again

I don’t normally put a whole lot of stock in standard newspaper horoscopes, because astrology is a lot more complicated than that. But a couple of weeks back I got a Rob Brezsny horoscope for Virgo that included the following words: “Consider returning to an old fork in the road where you made a wrong…
