VetrnŠtr the Viking's Samhain: the cycle of Fogmoon part 1

By Veigsidhe Karvgwenn 

VetrnŠtr the Viking's Samhain: the cycle of Fogmoon VetrnŠtrComes from Vetr who means winter, and nŠtr (The plural of Natt) which means at nights. The prayer at the time of the blˇt is Ars fri ­ ar OK, "for a good year and frith " We ask for the fertility, for a good health, for a good life   of the peace an harmony enters the people.

The exact term at "winter nights" is not mentioned in the saga Ynglinga by Snorri Sturluson where (in the chapter 8) In Brittany they were a Viking, t thought around the  Vikings settlements, Near Brest and Nantes,  and Viking raid of the church of LandÚvennec And into FinistŔre they are a name of Samhain "Noz Kala-Goa˝v" (Winter Nights = in Breton) it's close of the Norse language. So in the  Edda three great sacrifices of the year are banned: ź -Ůß skyldi blˇta Ý mˇti vetri til ßrs, en at my­jum vetri blˇta til grˇ­rar, press on ■ri­ja Ó sumri, ■at var sigrblˇt. ╗ 

(There should be a sacrifice at the beginning of the winter for a good year, and in the middle of the winter for a good harvest, the third in summer, it was the sacrifice for the victory.)

The rites of this next bl˛ts are inspired by those of Gythia/Godi Niele (She is French, from Alcase, Estern of France). I like really very much his texts always very beautiful, there I just have them one can adapt has those whom I already had. I has to say that the rite wins it in beauty. On the other hand one do not know if the sacrifice of VetrnŠtr took place has Yule or has Samhain, Asatruar and Odinistes generally making this party during the cycle of Samhain, from my part I did too. But I also make three toast for Nornes during my Rite of

12 Days of Yule. This one is my Cycle of Fogmoon (Northern ţsle Tradition): The Cycle on several days (has you to adapt them as you wish it): 28 in October 1st Night of Fogmoon at the beginning of Samhain or Samhuinn in the Scotland. Bl˛t for Odin and Skuld. 

29 in October: at 2nd Night of Fogmoon, rite of worship for the Scottish Goddess of the winter Cailleach Bheur. 

31 in October: at 3rd Night of Fogmoon, celebration of Samhain. The night of the Deaths, Valh÷llbl˛t, Bl˛t of Odin de Freya and Valhalla. Rite of Worship for the Goddess of the Death Morrig¨ ( Morrighan) I already have you to exchange these rites in my subjects to post for samhain.  -1er in November: Samhain, Celtic New Year, Fist day of Winter. Celebration of the Goddess Hel/day of Hel.

In November 2: Daudibl˛t or Daudrthing, Bl˛t of the All Souls' Day, made a rite of tribute for your deaths (I would post can you be above something later).

In November 3: Norse Rituel or Celebration of the Scandinavian strength. The meditation of Utiseta or then to do another shaman work. 

In November 4: at The end of Samhain/The end of the cycle of Fogmoon. Bl˛t in tribute has the Goddess Hel and has the Goddess Skadi.

28 Octobre:Toast in honor of Odin and in honor of Skuld for the first day of VetrnŠtr:

"-Ground falls composedly towards the dark horizon,
Take slowly in his curve its alive let us line,
Our nourishing earths become numb
Under the recent icy cover.
Intrusive sleep appropriates the most tenuous spirits,
Little dead reminds to the last homework:
Let us settle our owed completely before our big jump
In the ground depths of days without light,
Our unchanging hopes are engulfed a brief moment.
Odin, Lord of the Mysteries,
Shoulder we during the crossing of the long night,
Introduce we to the magic of life and death,
( Drink to Odin, then continue)

Skuld, Young Lady, Guard affectedly tense between your hands whites The thread of our uncertain future during these threatening days.
(Drink to Skuld, then continue)

(Pay some drops in earth; libation)

We let us offer this drink to the deaths,

-"Toast in honor of Urd for the third day of VetrnŠtr.
The last day sounds at the twilight dying person,
The translucent light on the calmed world goes out.
Let us seal our rigorous transactions exactly
In front of divine witness by sworn-in crowned oaths.
In order, let us enter righteous and honorable,
In the sinuous meanders of the imperturbable current.
On the past the informed eye returns justice,

Face the inevitable obstacles serenely light Heart of any debt, any claim.
Urd, Ancestral Queen, Admire attentively the fine work of my life, Admire well the results of the tests and the understandings received in my progress of solitary Druid. 
Of lengths hanks still remain to weave.
(Drink to Urd, then continue)
