God of the Day – Odin

Odin Facts and Mythology from gods-and-goddesses.com

Odin is the Norse king of the Aesir, the principal race of Norse gods. He was considered the father of all the gods and was primarily associated with magic, wisdom, war, poetry, and the runic alphabet.

Mentioned frequently from the period of the Roman occupation to the Viking Age, Odin is a prominent figure in Norse mythology who continues to be acknowledged in modern popular culture. For instance, we are reminded of him every Wednesday, the weekday that was named after him; Odin is Woden in Old English, and Woden’s day became Wednesday.


In most Norse texts, Odin is depicted as a long-bearded, one-eyed man wearing a broad hat and a cloak. Odin lost his eye upon visiting a Norse god named Mimir. Mimir was known as an extremely wise god, and he had also possessed a well called Mímisbrunnr. The waters in the well contained substantial wisdom and knowledge, and if someone drank from the well they would also gain wisdom.

However, Mimir required the drinker to sacrifice one of their eyes in order to take a drink. Odin decided to make the trade. Because of this trade, he is traditionally shown as having a dark eye or with a patch over one of his eyes.


Odin had two brothers, named Vili and Ve. Myth has it that Odin created the universe after killing the primal frost giant Ymir with the help of his brothers. The three continued by making the first man and woman, Askr and Embla, from an ash tree and an elm tree.

Odin married Frigg, who is the mother of his sons Baldur, Hod, and Hermod.  With Jord, the earth goddess, he fathered Thor. He is believed to have had more sons by other wives, including Vidar from the giantess Grid.


The most common symbol associated with Odin is the Valknut symbol, which is made of three linked or interlocked triangles. This symbol appears in a number of places along with Odin or ravens, including the Tängelgårda stone in Sweden.

There are a number of interpretations about the meaning of the Valknut. Some believe it represented slain warriors, many of which went to stay with Odin in Valhalla. In fact, the word Valknut is derived from the words valr, which means slain warriors, and knut, which means knot. Others think that it may symbolize the heart of Hrungnir.

Another common symbol affiliated with Odin is his spear, called Gungnir, which he acquired from the trickster god Loki after he stole it from the dwarfs who made it.

The ravens Hugin (thought) and Munin (memory) were Odin’s companions. They traveled across the Nine Worlds in Norse cosmology and returned to their master’s shoulder with tales of what they saw.

Odin also had two pet wolves called Geri and Freki. He is said to have created them when he became lonely. Like ravens, they haunt battlefields and feast upon the dead. Odin, who only drinks wine, gave them all his food.

Powers & Duties

In Valhalla, Odin sat on his throne called Hlidskjalf from where he watched over the Nine Realms.

Odin sought further knowledge in the runes, the letters of the runic alphabet. To achieve this, he hung from a tree with a spear in his side for nine days and nights without food or drink. He often used runes to practice wizardry.

Together with Freya, the goddess of love and war, Odin possessed the souls of slain warriors. The half that belonged to him found a final resting place in Valhalla, his palatial home with 640 doors. They were brought here by Odin’s daughters, the Valkyries, who met them on the battlefield.

Odin had a never-ending quest for wisdom. Sometime after he sacrificed his eye, he also took possession of Mimir’s head when Mimir was decapitated by the Vanir, a rival tribe. The head would tell him secrets and give him advice.

Badb – The Celtic Goddess of War from symbolsage.com

The Norse Valknut: True Origins & Meanings of the Triangle Knotfrom nordicperspective.com

The symbol we today call Valknut, or Valknútr, has long captured the fascination of people interested in Norse mythology and Viking culture. With its distinctive interwoven triangles, this symbol has been found on a variety of ancient artifacts, and has been the subject of much speculation and study. But what does the Valknut actually mean? Was it actually called Valknútr? Where did it originally come from? And was it really used by the Vikings? Let’s delve into the mysterious origins and meanings of the Valknútr and explore its place in Norse mythology, as well as its links to other symbols and enduring legacy in our modern world.

As you will learn in this article, the symbol we call Valknut may have had a completely different name during the Viking Age, i.e. when it started appearing on stones, jewelry, and wooden objects in and around Scandinavia. What that name is we do not know, so for the sake of simplicity I will refer to it as the Valknut throughout the article.

Science & Origin of Bloodstone

Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope or Piedra Del Sol, is an opaque cryptocrystalline Quartz and member of the Chalcedony family. The green color found within this stone is caused by tiny inclusions of Chlorite and Pyroxene, while the red is small concentrated areas of iron oxide minerals, most commonly Hematite. The word Heliotrope derives from the Greek word meaning “to turn the sun”. In today’s age, the most abundant deposits of Bloodstone are found in India, China, Madagascar, Brazil, Australia, and the United States.

Indian Aphrodisiac

In Indian culture, Bloodstone is considered an aphrodisiac. Within the culture, Bloodstone would be ground up into a fine powder and sold for a high price. The price of this ground-up powder would oftentimes even be sold for a higher price than the raw Bloodstone material. This makes top-quality Bloodstone that much more valuable.

Historical Uses

Bloodstone has been revered through different cultures and history. The red spots were said to be a representation of Christ’s blood and thus used as an amulet for Christianity. It was often used to check for blood hemorrhages. It is said that the famous Italian painter Giorgio Vasari was afflicted by a violent hemorrhage and a piece of bloodstone was placed between his shoulder blades to stop the ailment. When this stone is placed into water it will add a reddish hue that will be intensified when the sun’s rays hit it. Ancient cultures believed that it was able to turn the sun itself, blood red.

Leyden Papyrus

The Leyden Papyrus, written in Greek at the end of the 3rd century A.D. states that Bloodstone will give the wearer whatever he may ask for and “whatever thou wearer says, he will be believed. Whoever bears this stone, which is a gem, and pronounces the name engraved upon it, will find all doors open, while bonds and stone walls will rent asunder”. – Kropatchek, 1907

Meaning & Energy

Bloodstone activates our inner strength, willpower, and courage that has been masked by fear. This crystal is a purifier of our negative energies and aids to convert these thoughts and feelings into positive ones. Bloodstone helps break the mold of our endless monotonous cycles by helping us aspirate to who we truly want to be. This crystal is a reminder that the only judge of our thoughts and actions should be no one other than ourselves. The direction you choose to go in this life will only be decided by you. Heliotrope provides us with the necessary confidence and fortitude to move past hard times and see the growth ahead.

Great Affirmation Tool

Bloodstone is a thought-provoking amulet that aids in the process of manifesting our subconscious ideas into reality. These thoughts and emotions have been vastly hidden from the open-world due to their true power and our own insecurities. Trusting in our intuition and allowing it to be channeled through experiences and moments will only lead us onto the path of revolution.

A Thought for Today – Elements Among Us

Elements Among Us by Magena on paganpoetry.tripod.com

Your cool breeze invites us out
With passion that burns like a raging fire
A gentle rush of the spring water
Shows your light amongst the land
The wind allows for playful games
While the campfire keeps us warm
Quiet splashes raise up from beyond
And children dance beneath the trees
The cool air blows about the smoke
As the fire crackles in the night
The ground grows cold as dewdrops form
Grass is soft upon our feet
We dance the rhythm of the wind
And move to the motion of the flames
Kicked about, the water on our toes
Among the earth, a pattern appears
Within our souls, your Spirit grows
Bringing the wind to take us forth
Lighting the fire to make us dance
Watering the grass to keep us cool
Giving us earth, in night were freed

A Laugh for Today

Spell for Today – 3 Sleep Spells

A Spell for While you Sleep

You will need the following items for this spell:

Four lengths of appropriately coloured ribbon
which can be easily tied
Four pins
Your bed

Knot magic has a particular effect in ‘binding’ or fixing a spell in place and with the addition of colour it is possible to use ribbons to bring about a desired outcome. By using your own bed as a focus, your magical work can be done while you sleep. This is a very personal way of working and one which can bring particularly positive results.

If your bed has bedposts, simply knot a length of the correct colour ribbon for your purpose around each post.

Each time you do this, say:

With this knot of coloured ribbon

Bring to me the power hidden. Grant me that right Throughout this night.

If your bed has no posts then carefully pin the knotted ribbon to each corner using the same words.
Each night for two further nights touch each ribbon knot in turn and repeat the words above.

Leave the ribbons in place until you no longer feel the need for them. You can expect to have some fairly vivid dreams over the following three nights, which may help you to develop the qualities you seek. This spell allows your unconscious self to work in a protected space without the chatter of day to day matters.


To Protect a Sleeping Mind

You will need the following items for this spell:


Sleep is the time of dreams and visits. The following incantation repeated aloud at one’s bedtime will aid in the discouraging of unwanted visitors in the dreaming mind.

Before retiring for the night, repeat the following incantation aloud:

”Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea,

Draw close and circle round

Mine mind I clear and lend to sleep.

That sleep will use to rest the weary world

Let not the world and those unfavorable things within it

Visit upon mine mind unheralded

Uninvited visitors be sent away

Turned back

Turned back to the dark depths

Turned back to the sender whose name is never spoken

That thus he may gain strength

Gain strength and threaten those unable

Unable or unknowing

Unknowing or innocent

Innocents in the world

Sleeping as I sleep

Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea

Find favor and protect mine mind

Find favor and protect the innocents”.

This is best repeated nightly so as to protect ones mind and allow peaceful sleep and promote quiet dreams.


To Drive Away Bad Dreams

You will need the following items for this spell:

Bowl of warm water
Your chosen sprigs of herbs

This spell uses herbal magick and correspondences to clear the bedroom of negative influence. It is often a good idea to use material that is easily available, so you might use sprigs of rosemary, sage, Lady’s bedstraw, maize silks or broom-corn. Since you want something taken away you should perform this magical working as the Moon wanes.

Dissolve the salt in the warm water.

Tie the herbs together.

Dip the sprigs in the water and sprinkle the corners of the room with the water.

Use the sprigs to sprinkle the salt water on your bedclothes, and particularly round the head and foot of the bed.

When you have done this, place the herbs under your pillow, or if you prefer, under the middle of the bed.

The next morning, discard the herbs at a crossroads if you can, either by burying them or allowing them to disperse to the four winds. Otherwise ensure that you have carried them well away from your home.
This carries all negativity away from your bedroom and bed. This spell uses rosemary which brings clarity, sage for wisdom, ladies bedstraw which is said to have lined the manger at Christs birth, and broom corn, which is used in worship of the Mexican goddess Chicomecohuatl. All these herbs bring cleansing, not just of the room but also of the occupants aura or subtle energy. On the basis that one should always replace negative with positive, you may like to use the following technique to bring about positive dreams.

Having prepared your environment, this next technique is of most use when there is a strong, deeply felt association with the issue or request being considered in magical terms, ideal conditions for spell working. It is like being able to consult an encyclopedia that contains a wealth of information in fact, the Higher Self.

The eighth ogham letter, Tinne corresponds to the holly tree and to the letter T. The name tinne is related to the Old Irish word teann, meaning strong or bold, and the Irish and Scots Gaelic word teine which means fire. Therefore, the ogham symbol is associated with strength and power. It’s also sacred to the Celtic smith god Govannon or Goibniu, and the Saxon smith god Weyland, who are associated with strength, endurance, and the attainment of skill.

Hexagram Twelve/12

Hexagram: 12

Name: P’i.

Keyphrase: Stagnation.

Formed By The Trigrams: Heaven over Earth.

General: Although this is a time of adversity you should remember that all things change and there is always hope.

Love: A lover or potential lover may not be what they seem. Beware of falling in love.

Business: New business ventures may be too good to be true. Examine them carefully.

Personal: Strengthen your moral and ethical senses. Don’t be led astray.

Overview: P’i relates to a time of stagnation and to the fragility of life. If the foundations are weak or unstable then a building will eventually fall. This analogy should also be applied to people. P’i often indicates a time when arrogant individuals come to power or occupy positions of authority. Their arrogance will eventually be their downfall. Beware of individuals trying to subvert your sense of ethics or the consequences will be far-reaching for you.

Your birthday horoscope predicts that your ideas are somewhat evolutionary so they are likely to be challenging. Then, Aries, you do something unusual.

You tend to put distinctive projects on the table, start them and then move on to something else before finishing the first mission. Wow, who does that? An Arian, that’s who. It is a good thing you have the ability to laugh at life’s blunders because that is funny.

Aries born on March 23rd, you have very little patience for people’s trumped up stories and pretenses so you select your friends carefully. When it comes to communicating with friends or family, you prefer knowing the whole truth rather than hearing obscure answers.

If you have a birthday March 23, friendships are important to you. Arians will only confide their most intimate feelings with those closest to them.

What your birthday says about you is that you can give the impression that everything is fine and dandy but really, situations are not so good. When it comes to your children, Aries, you set an example for them but perhaps, it is with a nonchalant attitude.

You have loads of energy; you are smart as a whip and exceptionally good at organizing but Arians need plenty of stimulation to stay focused. Otherwise, boredom will set in and could cause some unexpected events to happen.

While in position of team lead, you are able to find the motivation to complete the task on time that you would otherwise leave on the table for someone else to complete. Because your team members look to you for guidance, you are likely to work harder at maintaining status quo.

Sometimes, you expect people to have the same dedication to the project that you do, however, it is not always the case. You cannot expect the same enthusiasm from people who do not necessarily support or understand your direction or purpose. Aries, try to be more sensitive to others and adopt a realistic approach when it comes to delegating authority and assignments.

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 1 PM to 3 PM EDT today (10 AM to noon PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Aries into Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Like Obi-Wan, today you might feel a great disturbance in the force as Pluto changes signs. This might signal that your friends will change. Likewise, you might decide that goals you have been pursuing are not worth pursuing. Shallow friendships will end.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

A major change taking place today will empower you to achieve your life goals and possibly change your life direction or your career path. (This is big stuff.) Take all the time that you need to contemplate this new direction. This will become more obvious by next year.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are starting to see that your overall view of the world is changing. Therefore, strive to learn everything you can because the knowledge you gain will be useful in the future. You might develop a strong belief or conviction in something.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your interest in the occult and hidden teachings might increase in the near future. This is because you want to know explanations that get to the bottom of things. Give serious thought to how you can reduce or get out of debt. Smart move. Don’t let debt control your future.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might start to feel that your relationships and partnerships are going to go through a profound and significant transformation because they will. As this unfolds, avoid power struggles with others. Very likely, you will redefine the nature of your close relationships and seek what is good for you.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A major shift that occurs today is a warning not to overdo things or over strain your body or your health. On the other hand, you might see ways to bring about a complete physical regeneration for the better. Examine your diet and your exercise regime. Be good to yourself.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For those of you who have children, you might see major changes taking place in the near future. Others might encounter star-crossed, intense romance. Be open to discovering activities where you can express your creative talents and explore new hobbies.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Major changes will be taking place at home and within your family dynamic in the near future. Your home life might change. Your residence might change. Relations to family members might change, especially relationships to parents.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

In a curious way, elements of your everyday life that you normally take for granted, especially relations with siblings, relatives and neighbours, might now become fraught with significance. Even the most casual conversation could seem profound or prophetic. (Interesting.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

In the next several years, your values will change, which might affect how you decide to earn your money and certainly how you decide to spend it. In fact, your attitude to property might change completely. Get ready for transformation that is inevitable.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today Pluto enters your sign for the first time in roughly 250 years. (It was last there in 1778-1798.) It will stay in your sign until mid-June, then return in January 2024 to stay until 2043. This will reshape your personality and make you want to control everything and everyone around you. (Wow.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You will begin to go through psychological changes as Pluto enters your 12th house urging you to get rid of hidden, psychic garbage. It’s time to let go of prejudices and attitudes that no longer serve your purpose. Many of these will be childish patterns that you must confront and deal with. (Pretty heady stuff.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Michelle Monaghan (1976) shares your birthday today. You are curious and adventurous, which means you want to learn as much as you can. You are an entertaining person and fun to be with. This year service to others is your theme. In order to benefit others, it’s important to take care of yourself. Time for a makeover?
