A little over two years ago, when I first started down the Pagan path, I Googled “writers patron deities,” hoping to find someone I would connect with. I came across Taliesin, and in turn, Ceridwen. I thought the story interesting, but didn’t really feel much of anything besides passing interest.
Fast forward to about a week ago, when I stumbled upon Taliesin and Ceridwen again; I had forgotten about them. I read more about Ceridwen (as there is sadly a lack of information about Taliesin as a god), and her correspondences, almost obsessively, soaking in everything I could. Then, I started to notice things on my walk to work. **Live hens for sale, and pecking at ears of corn. Butchered pigs for sale, with the heads proudly displayed on vendor’s tables. And, two or three large, brown rabbits, which, while I know aren’t sacred to Ceridwen, still made me stop and go, “Huh.”
I don’t know if this is “thwapping,” or gentle nudging, or I’m reading into something that isn’t really there, but any advice would be great–whether it’s about Ceridwen, thwapping, whatever. My Tarot cards say it would be a positive and enlightening relationship to pursue, but I would still appreciate other’s opinions.
