Invocation to Skadi
Hail, Huntress of the snow and ice!
Hail, wife of Njord the sea-god
Who would not compromise with anyone,
Nor live on the shore near the sea-birds
Rather than your beloved snowy mountains.
We who struggle between the tracks
Left by Your winter sleigh,
We whose bloody marks You track,
Skillful in your cold eye,
We hail you, Mistress of Survival!
Etin-bride of winter, Your cloak
Spreads white over the fields,
The icy wind Your breath,
White wolf in the snow,
Lady of the crisp clean starry sky
Over the frozen tundra.
Teach us of the narrow edge between
Living and dying, and of that struggle,
And the cold, naked truth that it reveals.
Catch us naked in the snow, Lady,
We shall bare our throats to your wisdom
And count ourselves lucky.
– Pagan Book of Hours
Skadi – Winter Goddess of Scandinavia. Skadi rules the winter season and the darkness that comes with it. She bestows justice and vengeance as necessary on the wicked, and is the incarnation of righteous anger. As the mistress of the hunt, Skadi gave humanity the bow and arrow. Snow covered mountains are Her home, and Scandinavia is thought to be named for Her.
She is also the Goddess of skiing with many references and even origins of her name referring to skiing – the best way to get around on snowy mountains! Skadi is a Giantess and is also known for the impressive amount of weaponry that she is able to master, being also a warrior Goddess. Skadi is a lone Goddess with a few marriages under her belt, none of which last.
