Navigate 2020 Chaos with Loki

This year's world events seem so random it's like being a character in a role playing game subject to the dreaded random encounter dice. People have been making memes all year about the latest random event and "did you have x on your 2020 bingo card?" Usually when someone suggests a particular event is chaos I reflexively try to explain why it's actually the function of order, that is, the function of some understandable process in which causes lead to effects, much like the heathen concept of wyrd and orlog. This year, though, it really does appear to be full of totally random, causeless events all over the world. There is a popular theory circulating on social media that explains the phenomenon, sometimes shared seriously and sometimes humorously. It references CERN, the Mandela Effect, and a small, possibly curious or mischievous, weasel.

Assuming you're a regular human and not a time mage or a god or one of the physicists planning to crack open reality and punch through to another universe, how can you travel through this time, relentlessly moving forward one minute per minute whether you will or you nil? How better than to invoke the protection of a god known for working through chaos to bring about a better world?

A Rune for Samhain

Over the past year, my friend Darcy and I have been continuing to work away on our “prairie rune” project.  Starting from a bioregional adaptation of the Anglo-Saxon futhorc, or rune alphabet poem, we have been sharing reflections in poetry and prose as a way of gently unfolding some of the spiritual-cultural-linguistic mysteries hidden within each rune.

Samhain

The witches' new year. Time when the fields lie empty and the year lies down. The gates of life swing open, the dead lean in. Our world's veil is at its thinnest; we peer through the lace to find that growing edge. We meet in Deep Time, everywhere and nowhere, to greet the triple goddess who is the circle of rebirth. Over one shoulder lean the ancestors; over the other, unborn future beings peer. 

Remember this: we are 4 billion years old. It's taken evolution all this time to produce us, and our action will express that genius. We're an unfinished animal, fighting metaphysical battles in the physical world; flesh and breath in confrontation with abstractions. This is the battle of the human epic. Modern stories of our powerful vision express a reclaimed, authentic future, a remedy. Exalt in the never-ending journey of change. Seed becomes fruit. Fruit becomes seed. The beloved dead surround us, calling us to use our lives while we can in the service of the bigger life. The unborn future crowds 'round, waiting. It's up to us. This chaos is a seedbed for the future.

Death, the Creator

 

Classic depictions of Death personified include skeletons carrying an hourglass or a scythe, mummified persons extending leathery hands, armies of skeletal warriors mowing down the living, or Pale Horsemen laying waste to kings, priests and children, as in the Coleman-Waite "Rider" Tarot deck.

From the 'Protocols of the Elders of Paganistan'

On the Left, they've convinced themselves that QAnon is a hoax.

On the Right, they think that we're a worldwide pedophilia ring.

Mwahahahahaha!

Little do they know that the time of fruition has finally come to achieve the goals that we first publicly articulated as far back as 1981!

Haven't they ever seen Halloween III? It wasn't subtitled The Season of the Witch for nothing!

Silly cowans. Did they seriously think that it was nothing but the stupidest Witchsploitation film of all time, not to mention the world's most annoying advertising jingle?

Mwahahahahaha!

Yes, my friends: the witches of the world are finally going to get our own back!

Sex? Ha! Little do they realize that the real reason why we've kidnapped all those children is to sacrifice them!

Yes, indeed: Samhain 2020 will see the greatest mass human sacrifice in human history, guaranteed to bring about not just the election of Joe Biden, but the worldwide resurrection of the ancient age of Witchcraft!

Mwahahahaha!
