In honor of Goddess Cerridwen (journeyingtothegoddess.wordpress.com/2012/07/03/goddess-cerridwen/), I have created a bindrune. This rune will not only help one communicate with and honor the goddess, but should strengthen all of her aspects in life, inviting in inspiration, creativity, poetry, prosperity, the ability to transform and adapt, and the wisdom to face shadows and changes with the desire to chase down what you need. Placing it in a special container when you wish for a particular aspect or communion with the goddess will be a sign of good faith, that you are stirring your intuitive and magical energies and are ready to face what happens when the goddess’s magic and messages manifest.
The runes in this bindrune are the letters of Cerridwen’s name (with one ‘e’ Ehwaz and the other Eiwaz).
This rune is designed to emulate the wisdom and creativity potion Cerridwen created with her cauldron and intended for her son. The up and down line in Nied is expanded on to act as the spoon which stirs the goddess’s magic labors. I used the color yellow to simulate the grains and herbs Cerridwen is lady of and used in her potion. I added a crow as this magical bird also belongs to Cerridwen as well as being a carrier of messages between us and our spirit allies. All glory to the goddess!
I have also celebrated her today with eating grains and bacon. Perhaps my favorite thing though, is that in the Disney picture-a-day calendar I have for the year, the picture that turned up on Cerridwen’s day is the magical cauldron from “Black Cauldron.” So I am also staring at that and feeling pleasure in the small things the goddess can provide inspiration through. Happy and inspirational shapeshifting days to you!
