Today, I have the same issue as yesterday, I have nothing to say on the actual topic. I will, therefore, share a Homeric Hymn to Demeter. There are two of those, the long one that recounts the story of Persephone’s abduction, Demeter’s search, the founding of the Mysteries, etc. The short one is three lines total. I will be sharing the latter here, and link to the other one below.
Today, as per usual for this topic, I will be sharing the Orphic Hymn to Poseidon. This is because there is no instance that I am aware that I asked Poseidon for a specific thing, or that he helped me out – asked for or not.

I am supposed to share a time when Hera has helped me, yet I never had much of a relationship with her in the past, or really requested anything specific when praying to her. So, I don’t have an occasion to tell about, when Hera helped me (that I know of, perhaps she helped me beyond me knowing it). So instead I’ll just share the Orphic Hymn to Hera today.
My friend Galina is soliciting for donations for a novena project of hers, and depending on the amount of money you donate, you’ll get some goodies. Please consider donating to her project, because we need more polyteistic, devotional works out there.
Ok, folks, I’m reaching out for help for this project. I wrote the novena book “Honoring the Mothers’ (which will be available soon), because I kept feeling pushed by Hermes and Dionysos to do something for Their Mothers. Then I realized that while many of these women had cultus in the ancient world, we don’t […]
