Samhain 2003 Omen

Samhian 2003 –

This rite was held at the UUCE, and we expect that it will be the final rite we hold there. I did this ritual with as little help from the script as possible, and I think I did alright. I was absolutely terrified that I would mess up a few invocations, and I went back to the script towards the end because I was having problems, but in the end it all worked out.

Have our offerings been accepted?
Oðila –
Enclosure, property. Where property is involved, I always get a good feeling. I see this as the reception of things; gifts. This Rune shows long and continued prosperity very nicely.

What do the Gods offer us in return?
Nauðiz –
Need, poverty. Not usually a good Rune, and I hesitate to read it well, but I get the impression from this particular Rune that we have some turbulent times coming up, and that there will be tests. I don’t see this as taking away from us or hurting us, just as maybe being a bumpy road.

What further needs do the Gods have of us?
Tyr –
Justice, the right way. I see this as tying directly into the previous Rune, and the Gods having need of us to make good decisions and to consider what we do.

Synopsis:
In other words, the offerings were accepted, with caveat: we need to be very careful of the decisions that we make, because we, as humans, can make bad ones. I think that the Gods have confidence in us, though, and they know we’ll make the right choices.
