Today is exceptional in that We Rhinos are pretty sure We can expect a Full Moon. Not only is that a pleasure, but it means We can have a second Full Moon this month on ………wait for it……… Halloween! Oooooooo, Spooooky.
That one will be the Hunter’s Moon, possibly named for the urchins tracking down candy and hyperglycemia.
The Harvest Moon, which usually is slated for September, focuses on the harvest. Your Inner Rhino, always informative.
Freya was the Norse Goddess of Beauty, Love, and Fertility. She attended to Gold, Prosperity, and explored Mysteries. She also attended to those slain in battle. Freya was a popular Goddess; Friday is named to honor her.
Missing from the image is some of her Goddess Equipment, namely, Hildisvini, a large boar, Brisingamen, an enchanted necklace, and her feather cloak, which she used to fly around. (Her chariot and two blue Tomcats were a gift from Thor.)
Freya was a goddess who knew how to have a Good Time. And then had it. Repeatedly.
Today is National Cake Decorating Day, which is often a day of Mystery where Rhinos are concerned. We start out with both ingredients and good intentions, but when the time comes for putting it all together, both the cake and the frosting have disappeared.
Perhaps this is one of those Natural Paradoxes We hear about…?
Today is Thursday, named for the ancient Norse god, Thor. Thor attended to a number of areas, with Thunder and Lightening topping the list, oh, and Giant-Bashing. He was short-tempered.
Apparently everything Thor touched had a large name. Thor drove a chariot drawn by 2 goats named Tanngrisnir and Tanngnjostr. He wore magic bracelets, called Jarngreipr, needed to wield his hammer, Mojnir. (This hammer worked like a Norse boomerang.) He also wore a special belt called Megingjore. Thor had Red Hair, but if it had a particular name, We don’t know what it was, though it was probably hard to spell.
The ‘Your Inner Rhino’ research team is pooped. So much spelling, even without the diacritical markings!
Today has been Tuesday, named for the Anglo-Saxon god of War and Peace, Tiu (or Tiw, Tig,Ti, Tii, Tir and Tuu). Yes, really.
Tiu is best remembered for ramming his fist into the mouth of Famrir, a gigantic wolf, thus assisting his father, Wotan. Tiu was ambidextrous, which was a good thing as it turned out. His main task was making sure folk honored their treaties, easier said than done.
Rhinos only call our days Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.
