Feronia/Juno, Minerva, and Jupiter/Tunic half-month of Nyd commences

At the Roman festival of Feronia the goddess of this name was worshipped along with Juno, Minerva, and Jupiter, the three Capitoline deities. The runic period of Nyd is a time to prepare for winter.” — The Pagan Book Of Days, Nigel Pennick


For heading into the dark of winter:

The Night


You darkness, that I come from,

I love you more than all the fires

that fence in the world,

for the fire makes

a circle of light for everyone,

and then no one outside learns of you.

But the darkness pulls in everything:

shapes and fires, animals and myself,

how easily it gathers them! –

powers and people –

and it is possible a great energy

is moving near me.

I have faith in nights.
