The door of Hades swings open for You

The Dead follow You down

You, who lead mighty Heracles to and from the depths

Bless the passing of the Dead

O fleet-footed God

Who blesses the limbs of thieves and pursuers

The hungry soul is fed and the greedy one is denied

Justice given from many ways

Whose eyes are full of stars

The grand cosmos uncoils

The beautiful dance of all things in the Starry Sky

You teach well to astronomer, astrologer, and seeker

Who sees and knows the smallest dance

The microscopic and subatomic in the deepest parts of Earth

The vibrating dance of all things

You teach well to the scientist, the engineer, and seeker

You who knows well the ways

The rivers of the body and the bending of disease to cure

The knitting of flesh, bone, mind, and spirit

You teach well to the doctor, nurse, medic, counselor, and seeker

Teacher, instructor, initiator

Wise and wily beyond reckoning

Counter and clever, ever-reaching for knowledge and wisdom

Hail to You, Hermes Poikilomêtês!

Seiðkona Who shakes in the throes of vaettir

Spákona Who hears the vaettir speak

Ginnregin Who embodies power

Whose mouth is full of blood

Whose hand hold the sacrificial knife

Whose spear is keen and wet

Whose sword is fierce and eager

Whose hair is braided for battle

Whose eyes pierce the foe

Whose wings cut the air

Whose words stir Urðr

Sigyn Project: Day 16

Venom-Tamer teach me

To know when my bowl is full

When my quaking limbs can take no more

And I must empty it

 

Incantation-Fetter teach me

To know how to set a curse

When best is the time to act

And how set to work

 

Victory-Bringer teach me

To know when the time is right

When my work and toil unfurl

And I must strike

 

Asynja teach me

To walk with feet in many Worlds

When to speak or be silent

And how best to act
