I am a Viking. I study almost every day and follow the old ways of Odinism. I had a very difficult time last year and was very alone and feeling depressed. My ancestors spoke to me and reminded me that their blood courses through my veins...their courage, love, and warrior mentality. My Gods and Goddesses do not ask anything of me except to hold my head up and walk amongst them, to do my best and love and support my family and protect them fiercely. Freya actually whispered in my ear and I felt so blessed that I became stronger every day and I read and studied every day, also. I joined a Clan of Vikings so I could educate myself even more and I promised my ancestors I would make them proud and I would be a warrior once again. Freya gave me her blessing to call myself Freya after her. She is my role model and I am determined to become that warrior/mother/healer/keeper of Seidr/Seer I once was. Skal!ImageImage

I could translate "barker" to mean "rankin" - have you heard of me? No you haven't. Basically, when I bark like a cat, I am happy, and when I rank like a pro, my cat is pleased. It's an inspired mind.

I've always been fond of moon magick, and when I started studying witchcraft one of the first things I learned about was the 13 month Celtic tree calendar. Ever since then I've had Hazel Moon as a username on various forums, because I was born in August during the time of the hazel moon.

I also go by Silver Star, this being a reference to the five pointed silver star pendant that I wear.

I have Native American ancestry. I broke my collar bone very early in life during a tornado. The first tarot reading I ever got from a witch described me as being dark in nature. Another tarot reader much later in life told me I was being followed by a black cloud. So I use the name Black Cloud.

I am Viking and follow Odinism, so I am a child of Odin. Most people call me Freya rather than my given birth name. She is my favorite Goddess and has pulled me through some very difficult times.[emoji3589][emoji3589][emoji3589]

Mine is a name of my own crafting. It is a combination of sylph which is a wind spirit and axiom which means something accepted without proof.

If I sit in the woods and feel the world around me the wind whispers to me. I've always felt close to these spirits as well as all elemental spirits and since nothing can be proven, I thought it would make a good name.

I wanted something with Moon in it since Moonchild is the name I got as a kid in my granny's coven. It is too much Never Ending Story nowadays,though. The idea for the name came as around our old place there was very bad energy at one time, so bad that even during the day but especially at night you got the creeps walking around there and most people and animals gave it a wide berth. When we got up there we got the impression of a spirit much like a werewolf. At one point, I had to use the big outdoors bathroom and as I was watering the nettles that saying popped into my head. Not too much later I registered here and so I stuck with it :-)

That's hilarious, :lol: I have often wondered how you arrived at such a name although it sounds like good advise anyway!

Well I am sure you all can guess how I got my name. Shortly after I met Lord Anubis and decided to become an Egyptian Wiccan, I felt that I needed a new magickal name. So it sort of came to me. He has a very comforting presence and it just felt right. I also go by Sat-Anubis which means daughter of Anubis in Egyptian. I have a tattoo of Anubis with both names in it.
