Saga Is A Goddess

Filed in INSPIRATION

Saga

Sága – Scandinavian Goddess of History. Sága resides in the Sokkyabek, a large hall located under a river, whose walls flow with mead. A Goddess of tales and myths, She would drink heavily from her walls and transcribe the important events of the day so that none would be forgotten. She is the patroness of seers and writers, and She records the history of the world as well as events to come. Known throughout Norse and Germanic societies, scrolls and mead are sacred to Her.
(text from Brandi Auset, The Goddess Guide)

So Saga is a Goddess — i had no idea that is where the word “saga” came from. It’s like how Sin is the Ancient Babylonian Moon God and Mensa (as in menstruation) is the Goddess of Measurement. There are thousands of other examples like this, of how the ancient deities are still woven into our very language.

I got Saga at 7° Virgo in 2H. About the 10th rock l found there. Adds to Virgosity/2 H influence.
I can bore ppl with the details (all in chorus: No way!!!).l so need to write. MM says l should write (NN 3H/Moon 7H/Abuntia11H, an in orb minor grand trine (my description)). I should…..

Anecdote

I rarely watch movies now bcos l ‘see’ movies when l play music (Moon Asc trine NepScorp4H).
Although l have seen “The Water Diviner” 7 times and it was not bcos of R Crowe…..

ah, Mars/Pluto?

I got Mars/Pluto conjunct so is that the attraction for me? Apart from her being Scorp.

supakaliMM Member

yeah, I think it’d be the signature of obsessive desire.

Aint that the truth. And that sextiles my Kat Asc and Pisces ruler in Scorp in KatHaus; itself a trine. I am a “V8 in car made of nails and wood” (Paul Kelly). I truly struggle. For me too much intimacy is not enough. I may as well be living 300ks north of Cook (west SA)

& all the fire in the sky AND Mars n Saturn aspecting. I have never felt intensity like l have had for the past astro season.

I hope the Orca like displacement of Jup hitting my Mars/Plut/Ven cjunct comes through (l can spell) soon enough.

I dunno how much l can take.

Saga conjunct Uranus/Pluto in Virgo first house. I do care about getting the details right 🙂
I think it’s really interesting that in order to make records of what happened, Saga drank mead first, which would have altered her perception somewhat. So the story of Saga is about the gap between what happened and the record of what happened, which interestingly is the debate that underscores contemporary discussion about ‘accuracy’ in history. Love it!

super cool. more reclaiming of goddesses from obscurity!
(speaking of goddessses, didja hear that instragram banned #goddess? my friends are in an uproar. i can’t imagine she’ll be held down for long. saga at 28 gem is squaring lilith at the end of virgo…)
mine’s in my 5th between ceres and pluto, trine lilith, square eros, and the tip of a venus-hekate yod. i feel like my embrace of the orpheus-eurydice saga fits here.

why did they do that? over the new age?

i don’t know! i haven’t actually researched it, but i’d guess that people were being ovely porny using it. probably not some patriarchal conspiracy though maybe if you pick it apart…

really? porny? well….I am an instagram virgin, so that’s news to me 🙂

Ummmm. Conjunct my second house Mars and first house Lilith and Calliope. I edit/proofread/publish for coin and write privately for pleasure. Wouldn’t turn down the walls of mead during some of my contracts….

Very cool!

I have Saga,12th House in Taurus.

My Mercury is in the 2nd and bull flavoured.
I imagine she has Mercury around for some Mead frequently.

i’m sorry to have not immediately addressed the language content.

i lost information on manas, a word that i had heard attributed to both the mars principle, which i think was a steiner phrase, and maybe
“the blood of the moon” which was how mania/moon cra became the thing.

when i was maybe 21? i got a tattoo with a full moon in it and balked at the last minute at having manas in the tattoo. but i might as well have.

Licking the walls ? Hmmm , trippy. Saga….baby…. remember those goblets Thor brought over for your birthday ? I’ll get one, please come and sit on the couch now.

I have a feeling you and Saga will get along just FINE.

i’ll take some mead now. my seer/writing gig is getting me thirsty, in the traditional sense. i’m concerned about the potential for ants at my house so i’ll keep it in a stein. when i move into my underground lapis cave though, i will install a mead fountain

Saga is exact conjunct my AC in Leo. What does this mean?

Electro

Do you have an affinity for writing or history? Drinking mead? I have Urania conjunct my ascendant and I love astrology, astronomy, and looking at the stars to relax. I also have Bacchus conjunct my ascendant but I don’t feel that as strongly.

Saga is in my 12th in between my Pluto and NN. Three degrees from Pluto and four from NN. Sweet.

Oh, you guys are going to *love* this…!

So thanks to Nono Sophia’s speedy research earlier in determining that Saga is asteroid #1163, while eating lunch I decided just to plug her in on a whim.

She’s currently @ 28GEM30, squaring goddess of the rainbow Iris @ 29VIR46; the other Mercurial sign, obviously.

What did I just write about last week with this duo aspecting my Sun? My own personal recent SAGA with RAINBOWS (Iris) – I kid you not!! You cannot make this shit up.

PS – FWIW, in my natal Saga & Iris are conjunct w/in minutes of arc.

That’s okay! I like hearing about this kind of stuff because I’m still a little bit fuzzy on the asteroids.

There’s an astro prize at the bottom of the box! 😉

guuurl, if you add saga and hypatia, you can fake left to urania or go right to moon/pluto and its an easy pass to wait, is that vesta> vesta is open, there’s neptune but he’s in square to himself yes its vesta, vesta and THERES PALLAS SHE’S BACKING UP VESTA, its a hand off , MIDHEAVEN OR NORTH NODE , which way will she go?
GOOOOOOOOAL

if i had access to, well assistive technology i might actually be able to make a real funny set of trading cards.i would totally do a podcast with someone calling out the transits like a game. i really love doing it in my head, but my family really thinks i sound totally off the rocker when i do it. “ARE YOU SEEING THIS?? DOHHHHH, MAKE THE PASS CHIRON! DON’T BOGART THE LESSON!”

if this mercury transit to uranus brings the goods then this will happen sooner than later.

by goods i mean either an unprecedented and/or unheard of set of software and hardware i could use AND/OR a huge amount of medical marijuana. ideally both, i mean, if we’re going for full on manifestation and such

i’ve had to go mostly analog. my collection of dusty astrological books and 70’s pamphlets is getting pretty fierce. i got an original zane stein chapbook in the mail the other day.

my big project is so analog it will require shipping trucks. but that’s tres hush hush

i may not be able to edit my comments but just yall wait.

i will say that the fact that my father hoarded close to 10,000 golf balls in his cellar has proven to be remarkably helpful

Electro

Woah. My father hoarded Scientific American mags for at least 2 decades. Golf ball collection is curiously fascinating.

Saoirse KirkeMM Member
Saoirse Kirke

my family is , special.

the mention of 2 decades of scientific american just got me into a hot flash i must admit
of course i’d just cut them up which is sacrilege but still. id probably roll around on them and do a reading info research bender. then cut them to bits

-Lil Kim. She was drinking heavily from her (prison) walls. Saga’d.
