The time of balance between light and dark is upon us.

A blessed Mabon to you all.

A time to harvest, and give thanks for your gifts and blessings from Mother Earth.

A time to release what no longer serves you.

A time for letting go.

A time to share with friends and family.

 

Embrace who you are,

Give gratitude.

Perhaps this coming year I will see if there is interest in my magical tools....for the serious practitioner.......

 

Let the winds and rains come, growing darkness settles upon us now

Wash away that which is spent, sweat has gone from labored brow

Colors scented spicy decay and waning sunbeams dance and play

For soon will come the blankets of snow

Inward run and shadows grow

Be not of gloom nor passing sorrow

Soon spring returns as if the morrow

 

Hail the great circle as it ever turns...........

 

I bid you all well......

 

A

I've no idea what that is; but it looks beautiful and fascinating!
Tell us about it please?

This is an altar sitting on a grapevine stand.........the red symbols on it are the 24 runes of the Elder Futhark (ancient pictographic alphabet of sorts but way more than just an alphabet)

 

There is a trifos (symbol of something tripled) for above and below and the web of wyrd...................the entire thing is based in (NEO) Northern European "traditional" paganism.................

 

At least my own understanding of it............(this is all reconstructed stuff in the new millennium) The big old church did a great job of eradicating my roots............I'm trying to forgive them......

 

The three serpents are Odin-Vili-Ve and the three spirals are Urthr-Verdandi-Skuld.......the serpent's heads mark the start of the Aerts.....a threefold division of the rune rows............... 

 

The runes are the underlying creative essence of everything...the God's of the God's so to speak..............

Very nice Arathu !!!

Your designs in threefold are beautiful. Is that inkwork, that is then protective coated? I love the runes. I was inspired after looking at this altar to go to my personal rune set and do a single pull, for a general description of the now and near future...............

 

I was please to see Fehu, and felt it was accurate and appropriate for the mood of the day.

 

Again, should you ever be inspired to finish the salamander and mushroom triad mandala, I will be first in line to purchase a copy.............................

I prepped a canvas...........it's black..............it's going to be a long road.....................  :meditate: 

 

But my time constrains are now very much eased and I will rejoin the rhythms of the sun and moon...................new job is dayturn with weekends off..............

 

The altar is carved, burned, and painted with red enamel and then clear coated........................it's definitely a solid piece of wood...................

 

Yes the elder Futhark runes comprise the web......Norns in swirls and Odin in serpents................A personal altar for my work is what it is...........a dance in the web..........
