Personally, I would ask the goddesses if it was all right with them - and Brigid first. This is just an assumption on my part, but I would be asking myself whether an Irish deity might still regard the Norse as an invading culture. That may not be the case at all, but I like to be sure about things like that, because I'm a worry wart.

For the ritual itself, I would likely incorporate a blot/sumble. The Irish loved a horn of mead as much as the Nords, and everyone in the ritual would be involved in the sharing of the cup and the making of toasts (and boasts!)


I honestly didn't think to ask first...a major "duh" on my part, but the ritual itself went fine, and seemed to "take root" with people.  We really didn't "invoke" the Goddesses (Brighid and Freyja) rather they were mentioned and given offerings of thanks. I think it was ok; the sky didn't fall down, etc.  I'll need to do that in the future if we plan to invite other Deities into the sacred space.  A side note: although these Goddesses are different beings, I believe they are very similar and would get along just fine.  Anyone with evidence to the contrary?

I appreciate all of your thoughts, especially since my next ritual is coming up soon. Smiley
