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. Currently focusing on divinities placed in an atheist "graveyard".

I'm an eclectic polytheist whose main divinities are Heru-ur, Bast, Sobek, Yinepu Isis, Zeus-Serapis, and Yemaya. I'm a mother, wife and Librarian living in the Rocky Mountains stumbling on my path and wondering what the heck I'm doing. Blessed be.

 This is written to fulfil my promise to write on each divinity from the atheists' graveyard.  Prayer to Cardea, Roman Goddess of the Hinge, the Axis, the Pole

You wouldn't believe how long I've been trying to write this post.  I've tried to seperate who Diana is without relying upon the writings about Artemis but most everything that comes up is about Artemis.  I can list facts but do not feel like I can't evoke who she is.

I've been sitting on how to write about this divinity.  Of all the cultural deities I've written about, the Orishas of Vodun and Santeria, tend to give me the most pause.  I'm a child of the 80's, Angel Heart is alive in my subconscious I think.  I spend a lot of time searching for something that I could, should write about Ogun.  Today I stumbled upon a website that took me to my source.  I give you my ode.

I'm very far behind in my obligations for this blog so I thank all for their patience.  Today's offering is for the Mighty Dagda.

2017 was a rough year for many of us.  The year seemed to fly by and yet it seemed to crawl so slowly.
