Hello there!I'm something of an eclectic Pagan with a Heathen upbringing, and I have a hand in... well, a lot of things. I am reasonably skilled at divination through tarot cards, less so with runes,…Continue
"Thank you! Fortunately, Loki tends to lurk on the periphery for the most part, but when he does step in to meddle about, it's usually hilarious. Or mildly devastating - there doesn't seem to be much of a middle ground with Loki. :)"
I'm an anthropology student and a Pagan practitioner. I was raised Asatru/Vanatru, but found that my patrons were at home a little more to the south: Hermes, Anubis, and Loki.
I create Mojo bags, and apparently have some skill with such things, and have an interest in wort-cunning, rune-work, and several forms of divination. I have also had an adventure or two with respect to Shamanism, and I have a great deal of respect for my power animals.
Though, I too understand having a melting pot of beliefs, though it would seem vastly different from your own, I have a fusion of Taoism + Celtic/Slavic ideals bound together with Scientific Theory and when it comes to 'Gods' a completely Panvitalist view.
All life is sacred, and so small and minute, yet our actions have ripples unto the lives now and future.... sort of view...
I am a huge fan of balance, I also believe in the possibility of re-incarnation, and agree of the past life privacy quite highly ;)
I would love to hear more about some of what you're into, I know little about Asatru and have dabbled a bit in Shamanism over the years, but it's sort of trailed off...
I tend to know advise, and make heavy use of the I CHING to help guide people, I'll use other forms of divination if need be, but I personally like things with less concrete results and more open ended interpretations focusing on the spiritual outcome.
I find Tarot for example is too accurate when I deal with it, which doesn't allow most people to correctly accept the course of action their life is on and spins them short sighted into a new direction just because they don't like one aspect.
