Summer Solstice 2003 –

This rite also occurred at the UUCE in Reynoldsburg, after we worked out some of our previous problems.

Anyway, the rite went pretty well, and we had a lot of fun doing the ritual. We used the altar again, and ran an alcohol fire, which worked very well.

At right, you can see the omens for this ritual.

Have our offerings been accepted?
Ehwaz
The Horse was first, indicating dialogue, and the dialogue here is the dialogue between the worshippers and the Shining Ones. I took this as a definite omen that the sacrifices had been accepted.

What do the Gods offer us in return?
Rađio  
The Journey, indicating further travel. It seems that the deities are giving us extensive, but safe, travel, which may correspond to our relations with the UUCE, which have been only lukewarm.

What further needs do the Gods have of us?
Kenaz
 
The torch, and also the ulcer. It seemed to me that the deities wanted us to be a shining example, but also the fire that is lit under people to get them to do stuff. It's also entirely possible that the Gods want us to be the fire in the Pagan community.

Synopsis:
I also spoke with someone who wanted to come to our ritual, but didn't make it because she got lost. Apparently, she was doing a lot of traveling, as well, so the deities may have been talking about that, too. 

-MJD, Senior Druid
