I plan on honoring Mani on this special night for all that he does for us. In Gylfaginning it says, " The moon did not know what might he had ." Well we know the might of the moon. We have lived for centuries by its cycles and we feel its powerful tug upon our oceans in the form of tides. He also pulls at our heart strings and is known for his spreading of love. Until I read this article on how close it will come to our Mother Earth, I didn't realize how much I have neglected Mani. I always sing the praises of Sunna, but have left Mani out of my rituals and my prayers. That will change as of this moment.
Mani will continue to cross our night sky, and affect our Goddess Jord, until the wolf catches him, and Surt with spoiler of twigs comes and destroys our nine worlds. Until then I will continue to marvel at him as he travels across our night skies and brings light and hope to all who seek his presence. Hail Mani, a beacon in the darkness !
P.S. I wrote a poem about him a few years ago. If I can find it I will print it soon.
Go with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love and Thor's protection !
