A Thanksgiving Rededication - Awen Witch's Mark

A Thanksgiving Rededication - Awen Witch's Mark

With loving thanksgiving to and in honor of my Old European, Pre-Celtic, Celtic, Pictish and Druidic maternal genetic lineage, today I pulled out my Ogham stave sets and am working with them again. Ruis is the fid I drew in today's thanksgiving renewing and rededicating divination - it initiates my own transition and return to the Ogham as my primary divination tool. Ruis is the mark of the witch, elder wisdom and a fid of Awen. Blessed be the Disir, Ancestral Mothers, Guardians and Wise Women - to those of my own I personally and wholeheartedly give thanks this Thanksgiving.

Ruis, alternatively Ruadh (Scottish-Gaelic) and *Rowdo- (Proto-Celtic), is derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *h₁rewdʰ- (*h₁reudʰ-) and derived terms *h₁réwdʰ-it-os, *h₁rowdʰ-ós , *roudos (Celtic), *raudaz (Germanic).
