Since beginning work with Cernunnos, he has subtly demanded that I have an altar for him and him only. So, Apollo's statue is going to end up moved to another shelf where I can put things for him and no one's feelings are hurt.
Ever since I was a child, from the first moment I ran across the name in a book, Cernunnos has always been in the back of my mind, always one step ahead, waiting for me to follow. Is it now, great Father, that I should follow you?
If you are still looking for information about foxes, I feel the need to mention Reynard who is not a god, but he is a figure of folklore spanning German, French, Dutch, and English literature. I believe he dates back to the 1100s. He is a trickster figure as is common for Foxes in folklore and mythology. Not sure that's what you're looking for, but it's the first thing that pops to mind when I hear about Foxes. :3
Thank you so much for this information! I hadnt actually heard about him, which makes this a lot of fun to learn about.
Wow people are jerks, you had a legitimate question :c
I sure did! 8D the funny thing is, learning and growing and evolving on my path is my favourite part of being Pagan. Its just a shame that so many people have resorted to snark and spite instead of being happy that people are genuinely interested in learning about new things.
I am continually astounded by not only the kindness of Pagans here on tumblr but also by the rudeness, the quickness to judge and the downright bitterness that many of them show towards ANYONE who isnt a walking encyclopaedia. Let me remind you that the only shame that comes from having questions is not asking them.
^ This. I hate when people ask dumb questions that a simple google search can answer, it’s seirously really lazy. Why…
dont be an ass, yes? a ‘quick google’ got me absolutely nothing but instances of FOX news being douchebags about pagan beliefs. so thanks for being a shining example of the kindness that tumblr has to offer to pagans looking for information 8D
Over the past year, I have felt myself growing away from Morpheus.
It makes me terribly sad, honestly, as I really cherish my time with him, but I no longer feel as drawn to him as I used to. Instead, I have grown closer to Nyx and Hekate has been persistently trying to get my attention. I imagine this is normal, as humans grow and evolve spiritually and emotionally over time and through rough events. I suspect my mother’s passing and the abuse I suffered at the end of last year has been what is pushing me towards Hekate as well as strengthening my bond with Nyx.
I cannot help but feel guilty, all of that aside, but it isn’t as if I am abandoning Morpheus, rather, that I feel I dont have much I can offer him at the moment that would be useful and vice versa.
I am going to do some meditating on Hekate and her wants from me, but it has been months and months since she first started to try and catch my attention.
I do wonder, however, is it normal to feel very strongly connected to three deities, instead of two?
