Three Shouts on a Hilltop: A blog of a most boastful nature

heelancoo:

This is a really good post from Sionnach Gorm, which I highly recommend mulling over. Ritual boasting is something that’s been largely overlooked by the wider CR community so far, I think, but Gorm raises some good and interesting points here. 




The Spaewife | Hag o' The Hills

A spaewife is a female prophetess, a seer, a diviner, one who sees. In Norse shamanism she was called a spákona or spækona – a seeress, and stories of such women are found throughout Norse mythology. The völva’s (Norse shamanic seeress) practice involved spá and in an account called Völuspá (Prophecy of the Völva) the first poem of the Poetic Edda, Odin, the father of the gods consulted a völva to find out what was in store for all the gods.

Witch curse blamed for Wirral Magazine pub fire - Liverpool Echo

THE landlords of a Merseyside pub which was almost destroyed by a fire believe a mysterious curse is to blame.

THE landlords of a Merseyside pub which was almost destroyed by a fire believe a mysterious curse is to blame.

The blaze at the 250-year-old Magazine Hotel in Wallasey caused £200,000 worth of damage and left managers Linda and Les Baxendale living in a caravan for three months.

A small fabric witch figure which hung from the ceiling of the main bar was stolen two nights before the fire.

And with a history of accidents befalling those who dared to touch it, the couple are convinced the two are connected.

An Cailleach

themodernsouthernpagan:

I really wanted to post this video, but I can’t get an embed code, so a link will have to work.  This is an art video about An Cailleach and her day (celebrated on March 25 by the modern calendar) and the end to winter.  It’s only about 8 minutes long, but it’s really lovely. image

The embed code can be found at Youtube:

Anyone out there know of any Irish Gaelic resources for beginners, preferably online? I’m wanting to delve into the language, I just don’t know where to start. It feels wrong, personally, to claim heritage from a people and not know their language. Any help is appreciated!
You could try the links posted by The Language Community. It’s been reblogged several times.
