From the Oak: Let’s hear it for the God!

Many are those that focus on female divinities, leaving male divinities in the shadows if they get mentioned at all. This is a shame. Here I will share my thoughts, stories and prayers on male divinities.

I am a Hellenic Pagan, dedicated to Zeus, living in the Colorado mountains with my husband, our son, two cats and a yellow lab.  In the little bit of free time that I have, I enjoy reading and crafting.

Cupid, son of Venus, is the capricious god of love and desire and number 25 in my tribute to the Gods wrongfully placed in the atheists' graveyard.  He was more about the pursuit or spurning of love than about the actual relationship.  Often portrayed as a chubby child (only occasionally as a youth), it is no wonder that he was so temperamental.  Try being stuck in a child's body for ages, upon ages and see how even tempered you remain.

Below is my tribute to Freya, divinity #24 wrongfully placed the atheist's graveyard.  This is my continuing effort to learn about and post something on each divinity placed there.

Below is the tale of Baldr as it came to me while I conducted my research.  The purpose of this post is to continue to honor all the gods wrongly placed in the atheist’s graveyard.  I do not pretend that this is what the Eddas or any other ancient writings say.  This is my tale written to fulfill my promise.  No more, no less.

I live in an area where the winters are long. And cold.  And snowy.  Sometimes it seems like spring will never come again.  So 5 years ago I started making corn dollies out of corn husks and cotton embroidery floss, cotton twine or jute twine.  But these were not just ANY sort of corn dollies, these are SPRING corn dollies.

When your doubts overwhelm
When you act out your fears
When failure drags you down
Call on Magni, son of Thor
