Good News from a Goddess

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored!" No time to tarry today -- just want to pass along some good news!

I've been declined an interview by a Goddess.

Well, not exactly declined, but postponed. Postponed because She is too busy with Her praise and worship team!

The Goddess in question is Freya, and I wanted to draw her attention to the fact that my daughter The Heir is summering in Her domain. When I called Freya for an interview, she said she will pencil me in for Monday (maybe), but she's especially busy just now.

I'm pretty doggone clueless about Freya's praise and worship, although I once drank a toast to her from a horn of mead. It's great to know that there are modern humans out there who not only love her but are treating her like a Goddess and not just a "myth."

I must fly now. Hopefully Freya and I will get together shortly. In the meantime, I had better get down the spelling of her following. I never do get it right without looking it up. Here's a cold read: Asratu. Goddess, I know that isn't correct, and she'll be offended if I mess up. So help me out here! Tell me what you know.

All I know is that Freya is Yellowdog Granny's Goddess of choice. Having YDG as a follower must keep Freya busy just in and of itself, let alone having many other devotees around the world.

I always remember how to spell it by thinking "that's true" in a horrible stereotypical Italian accent.

"Asa tru!"

I only know the basics about Freya but I've been looking lately because she decided to have a word with me as well, but unfortunately I haven't gotten the honor of an interview. I do know that those who follow Asatru also sometimes identify as Heathens so you might find some more info under Heathenry. I look forward to hearing what the Goddess has to say!

I found the book Essential Asatru by Diane Paxon very helpful when I was looking into if being a heathen would be a good fit for me.

There are also those who follow the Northern Pantheon in ADF. Here is linkage to a page of different articles written about by that group as well as different rituals people have done in ADF with the Norse Gods
