Prayers for Odin

Prayer for Wisdom

Harbard, Wise Ferryman,
Help me learn patience
Help me learn to answer well
Help me  find my wisdom
Greybeard, May it be so

 

Prayer for Abundance

Oski, Wish-giver, Will-worker,
I seek security and safety
I want my income to be sound
I am open to your guidance and gifts
May I find the blessings I seek
May my hard work be worthwhile
May my effort be rewarded
With abundance and prosperity

 

Invocation to Wodan*

Wodan, Wanderer, Wise one,
I call to you
Hanged one, Hidden one, High one,
I call to you
Yule father, All father, Victory father
I call to you
Mighty God, I invoke you
Ancient One, I offer to you
Wand-bearer, I honor you

United Pagans of Color – September Meeting

The United Pagans of Color will be hosting our monthly support group meeting in Long Beach, CA on Saturday September 12th, 12:30pm to 3pm.

This month we will be discussing Cultural Appropriation

United Pagans of Color is a fellowship of women and men coming together to discover the hidden community experience. A place for members of our community who self-identify as a person of color to come share their experiences and participate in discussions of diversity as part of the hidden community, reclaiming our voices and our rightful place amongst the greater Pagan circle.

Our vision is to create community healing working within sacred space helping to build safety and social networks that are healthy and sustainable for all Pagans.

We share our experience, strength, and hope with each other that we may grow on this common journey.

The only requirement for membership is the willingness to acknowledge the experiences of the Pagan of Color community.

This meeting is open to all allies (Pagan Friendly, and non-PoC) who wish to lend support to members of the Pagans of Color community.

Our primary purpose is to be seen, to be heard, and to be accepted; we are the Pagan community.

CC BY-ND 2.0 Fennica Protest CC BY-ND 2.0

This week I performed a trabajito in the form of sigil writing and spell casting to protect the protestors who, at the time of this writing, are dangling themselves across the St. John’s Bridge and floating in kayaks below it to stop the Shell icebreaker ship Fennica from leaving it’s port and heading to the Arctic to assist in drilling for oil.

Why did I do this? It’s because I feet obligated to be involved in the struggle to save our planet. Like I feel obligated as a person of color to march in Black Lives Matters protest. I use my education, my citizenship status, my economic privileges and my light-skin passing privileges to further various social justice causes. So why wouldn’t I use my craft?

Many people are abhorrent to getting involved in politics. This is true for pagan communities too. I don’t mean…

Richard Moll, the actor known to millions as the hulking but loveable 6 foot 8 bailiff on the 1980s television show Night Court, has become the new face of one of the most iconic bands in all of heavy metal. Starting in the Fall, Moll will be touring as the vocalist of legendary extreme metal outfit Napalm Death.

The news comes on the heels of the announcement by singer Barney Greenway that he’d be stepping away from the band to become the Northeast Regional Communication Director for American Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders. Greenway will rejoin the band after the election, but asked his close friend Moll to take over vocals until he’s ready to return.

Moll, who is a diehard Napalm Death fan and even worked an occasional reference to the album ‘Utopia Banished’ into several Night Court episodes, has been doing a good deal of voice acting work and…
