Happy Monday everyone. I hope you have had a lovely Monday. It's been snowing here all day, and everything is covered in fluffy white snow. It makes it hard to get motivated as I'd rather curl up with a book, blanket, and some tea, but I'm committed, so let's do this thing!! It's time once again for our weekly omen.
This week's divination comes from the Mythic Oracle by Carisa Mellado and illustrated by Michele-lee Phelan. Below is our message for this week:
Prometheus - Sacrifice
Dionysus - Freedom
Pan - Nature
Prometheus is a symbol of sacrifice. In mythology, Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to humankind, but for this gift he was severely punished by the gods. He gave this gift selflessly, even though it lead to hardship for himself. Not all sacrifice has to be that harsh, but it is giving something of ourselves to those around us. Sometimes we have to make sacrifices to move forward.
Dionysus is the god of theater, wine, and ecstasy, which all bring with them some form of freedom. His rituals often involved large celebration, dancing, and libations.
Pan is the god of the wild and a companion to the nymphs. He was found in the wild mountains, and among the flocks and shepherds. Overall, he was tied directly to nature and the wild, free forms of life found within it.
To summarize, we may have to make sacrifices that are not easy to make, but in those sacrifices we can find freedom and a connection to nature that we may otherwise miss.
If this message speaks to you, or if you have some other interpretation, I would love to hear from you! I hope you all have a wonderful week.
