Is there a connection between Loki and Lugh? Some scholars think so, others don’t.
I think there might be, due to a bit of personal gnosis I got during the weekend.
Loki visited me in my dreams on Friday night. He mentioned that this weekend there was a special occasion, which He seemed to want me to do a bit more extra out of. When I asked Him what kind of occasion this was, He seemed a bit miffed that I didn’t know. Of course He couldn’t just tell me straight out…
Me, being a newbie pagan, have no idea what kind of holy days or special occasions there are in the Northern
Tradition (I’m rather clueless about the Christian special days, too) – except for Yule, and well, I think Yule used to be celebrated earlier in pre-Christian times.
Anyways, when I awoke, I googled, and discovered that Sunday was Lughnasadh Eve, a fire festival. So, Loki wanted me to celebrate a bit extra on Lughnasadh? Interesting.
I lit several candles on Loki’s altar, and also some strawberry incense. It looked quite nice with all the candles.
Loki got a lollipop and an energy drink all to Himself. I had a taco pie with extra chilli spice for dinner, which I invited Loki to share with me.
It seems that Loki quite likes to share food and drink with me, so He has a standing invitation to do so whenever He wants to.
