Get Me To Many Gods West!

Okay! I really need to get to Many Gods West! Freyja’s Aett will be presenting our Facets of Freyja ritual again, and if at all possible, I want to be there to present with them!

I also really want to bring Lon Sarver with me, preferably with room for his family, who are also Pagan.

To do that, I need about $1200 for the rental car, room, and event fees, not counting what we’d need to spend on food and gas, and a plane ticket for D, whose disabilities preclude road trips. If my math is correct, the prices don’t change, and my usual sources of income follow their current pattern, I’ll have about $700 of that covered by the time the event takes place. Which means:

I need to raise about $500!

While my Zazzle store designs are a lot of fun, they don’t add up very fast at my end. What adds up faster is people paying full price for my readings, and people buying my crafts.

I do still have the original Sigdrifa’s Prayer Wooden Plate: Woodburning with painted accents. Two serpents entwined, inspired by Anglo-Saxon knotwork, with the text of the only complete Heathen prayer found in the Lore, transliterated from the original Old Norse into Elder Futhark Runes.

The plate started out looking like the floor behind it.

The plate started out looking like the floor behind it!

I will gladly sell it for $300+ Shipping to a fellow Norse Pagan or Heathen!

But that seems like a long shot just now. Towards more realistic fund raising options, I offer:

Tarot++ Readings via Email: [edit] 1$/minute.[/edit] Typical readings are 30-60 minutes. Payment follows receipt of writeup. Email Ember Outreach at Gmail dot Com

You email me your question or topic, and choose either the regular Tarot (Robin Wood, Universal Waite-Smith), and/or one of my Pantheon-Specific Tarot decks (Norse, Welsh, Orixa, Loa, Greek). If necessary I will help you figure out what your question needs to be.

I will then do a meditative Tarot reading with a layout customized to your question, making note of any special input from the spirit world. I will send you a detailed writeup of the results, including how long it took for the reading and initial writeup, within our negotiated time frame. If you have further questions, I will clarify within reasonable limits, or we can negotiate a follow-up reading.

Nine Worlds Map Prayer Necklaces: $60 for North American buyers. (International shipping would require a bit of research on the shipping costs.)

Hand-strung, blessed necklaces with marker beads representing each of the Norse 9 Worlds and 3 Great Wells, with 9 spacer beads between them. Most beads are semi-precious stone, and the wells are metal, but some necklaces have wood, seed, or fine glass elements to them.

Here’s the best part: When the strand is folded around itself according to the included instructions, the arrangement of World Beads along the axes functions as an abstract 3D map of Yggdrasil!

I’m about to make another batch of these. I will post pictures of the current stock for people to choose from in a subsequent post. πŸ™‚

Right now all I can take is PayPal via the button –>.

Because this is for a specific fund-raising purpose, right now I can’t accept barter, sorry. :/
