Fenrir

Post # 1
On northernpaganism.org in the shrine to Fenrir, it doesn't say any offerings to him. I want to give him a offering but I don't know what to give him. I think he should get meat, but I don't have the best variety of meat. I kind of like my blood. I'll give him some blood if I must, but want to know more offerings. As I said northernpaganism.org did not have any offering suggestions just hymns and invocations.

Be very careful when dealing Fenrir. He is a very angry and ruthless deity. He really isn't one for offerings but you can dedicate something outside such as a tree stump to him and leave offerings there. I have a field of tall grass dedicated to him.

Thank you dothraki. Why is Fenrir malicious.

Fenrir's behavior is likely due to his upbringing. You have to keep in mind that Fenrir was betrayed by his caretaker (Tyr), taken forcibly from his family (Loki) and locked away as punishment for being "scary" to the Aesir. He's got a lot of pent up anger due to this. He also has a ravenous hunger, and is beyond control due to his appetite.

However, that's not to say he isn't a deity you can learn from. He's one of the better deities to try and understand if you wish to learn more about your own primal, beastial side and the "darker" side of your persona. He is very much chaotic and uncontrollable. He will never be a friendly deity. He does not much care for offerings because he does not much care for anyone or anything else other than him and his needs.

Like suggested, you could leave him an offering outside. I have a tree stump I use. If you feel like leaving an offering, I suggest something you've hunted (skins of a rabbit, etc) or meat (bloodied and raw). It's also been said that pain, negative emotions, anger and blood are acceptable offerings to him. But don't expect any kind of show of gratitude or even mention from hiim just because you do something.

Why is Fenrir malicious? Because he was chained and imprisoned,being "out of control".He bit off the hand of Tyr, and killed Odin. He is, according to Norse myth, the giant wolf, devouring everything in his path.
A God not to be messed about with, old Fenrir!

How could the gods be so mean? :(. I think Fenrir should have been cared for the right way. I believe that if Fenrir was treated nicely he wouldn't be so hateful to the gods. If I was Fenrir I couldn't bear being betrayed by Tyr, as Tyr was the one who cared for Fenrir. I feel sorry for the wolf god.

I feel anger a lot. So I'll give him a offering. Besides wolves aren't the most kind type of animal. Also Fenrir is a rokkr god. So he is a deity. Just not the kindest one.

Odin knew the future, that one day Fenrir would be out of control and would be the cause of his death. This, and the fact that Fenrir grew rapidly and large and became powerful, caused fear within the Aesir. They bound him as a means of preventing the future Odin saw from occuring, however, it is because they found Fenrir that the future occurs as it does in Norse literature and Fenrir goes on to kill Odin after holding a grudge against him for many a year.

The definition of irony.

I do not recommend channeling Fenrir, since you are new to the practice and do not have a full understanding of Fenrir yet- but I have wrote about it before. I use this as a method of channeling anger out of myself and giving it up as an offering to him:

I also use the practice of berserkergangr to release anger and turn it into an offering:

Yeah that is true. Orin's son would kill Fenrir. His sons skoll and Hati, they don't have a fate right? Does that mean they would live after the ragnoroke?
