An ADF Druid's trials, tribulations, musings, and victories

Today, the time that Sunna (the Norse Sun Goddess) and Máni (the Norse Moon God) spend in the time is equal.  They are in balance.  Personally, though, I find that since Sunna’s light is growing stronger each day, the focus is on new life and new beginnings.

I will officially celebrate with ritual tomorrow.  Idunna will be honored.  Idunna is the wife of Bragi, God of Poetry.  Idunna herself “guard[s] the apples of immortality which kept the gods for ever [sic] young” (Ellis Davidson 164).

I see Spring Equinox as the time when Idunna allows the Earth Mother (Nerthus in Norse tradition) to have one of her apples of immortality and again become young.  I will honor Idunna for her apples.

If you’re curious about the ritual I will perform, I posted it already here.

Have a blessed Spring Equinox, however you may celebrate!
