The summer solstice, deadline for litanies to many gods, slipped by without me being able to acknowledge it. I had just returned from Free Spirit Gathering, for one, and it always takes me a few days to settle back into a routine after a trip. This is also a busy time of year for me ritually, with an ancestor pilgrimage and the festival of lilies, and the Vigil for the Bulls coming up; why I selected this particular due date is beyond me.
Nevertheless, the submission period is now closed. There was a flurry of submissions at the beginning, and quickly realized how bloody much work I have bitten off. I am going to have to write a prayer for each of the gods named, and for some of them that’s going to require education.
What needs to be done soon is the selection of a winner. I have a post half-written about the divination systems I use and what I might do to determine which of them to use to divine that winner, but it’s languished for over the month for want of my attention. Since time is the overall theme here, my plan is to take the time to go to meeting for worship and open myself to the gods for an answer. It’s the most direct form of divination out there.
