Voluspa

 
Theme: Foresight, history, perspective, divination, time.
Symbols: Stories or storybooks.
 
About Voluspa: An old festival in Iceland known as the Isledingadagurinn
preserves Voluspa’s energy by recounting local heritage and custom in
public forum including theater, singing, writing and costumes.

For our adaptation, I suggest taking out or working on a family tree or
perhaps a personal journal. Read over the chronicles of people from your
ethnic background and honour their lives in some appropriate manner (
perhaps by lighting a candle ). Voluspa lives in these moments and at
any time that we give ourselves to
commemorating the past.
 
Alternatively, get out some good storybooks and read! Turn off the TV
for a while and enrich your imagination with the words of the bards who
keep Voluspa’s power alive in the world. Especially read to children, so
they can learn of this Goddess of Wonders.

Goddess Meditation

The summer clouds are beautiful,
yes they are. Yes, they are.
The summer clouds are like flowers,
yes they are. Yes, they are.
The clouds blossom in the sky,
yes they do. Yes, they do.
The blossoming clouds are coming here,
yes they are. Yes, they are.
~  Zuni “Song of the Blue Corn Dance”
 
Summer is, indeed, a beautiful season. Yet it is also a busy one.
Vacations, social engagements, outdoor concerts, and the usual press of
work and laundry and errands and …
 
Summer whirls by. It is July already, when May seems to have been
yesterday. How can we enjoy our lives when they are led at such a pace?
What will you remember of this summer? If you are too tired to watch a
firefly on a sultry night, too busy to notice that a favorite flower has
bloomed, too much in transit to enjoy conversation with a friend what
will you have to hold, to treasure, in winters to come?

For we cannot savor what we rush through. Let some things slide this
summer. Don’t worry about them.
You will never remember if you did the laundry and you will never forget
the fragrance of new roses.
