Pan
By:
Post # 1

I have been having an exceptionally hard few days. Tonight I reached a sort of breaking point. I decided I was going to set an altar for the Morrigan and attempt to begin working with her. I set up the altar thinking of stones I could offer. I finished the altar. I looked at it satisfied with my work and then it hit me. The altar was decorated for Pan! I'm wondering if any of you have some good ideas on offerings for pan? Stones, herbs, flowers etc?

Thank you all for your time.

Blessings.

Pan, as far as I know, is the God of the Wild, shepherds and flocks of sheep, nature of mountain wilds, etc. He is also represented in the same way as a Satyr so maybe some images related to those. He is also thought to be the Companion of the Nymphs. He's the God of Nature, so perhaps some flowers and leaves could be placed on the altar. Maybe river-water as an offering, along with vegetables? I've never actually worked with Pan, so I can only say this much.

Traditional offerings were milk, honey, and honey cakes. Cows, lambs and rams were also traditional offerings, but I'm not suggesting animal sacrifice. Instead you might have small figurines of the animals instead. Musical instruments, particularly Pan's pipes are appropriate.

Thank you both very much.

Lark you mentioned honey. There is some what is called honey flavored syrup at the local dollar store. I wonder if that might be good?

I intend to keep my eyes out for sheep figurines, though I can be rather picky.

For now I've been going mostly off intuition. I read pan's colors are purple, brown, and green. I have some stones I intend to order. Among these are some green and purple varities. I have also offered yellow green cube shaped beads in a geometric form on the altar, and can picture using maroon candles. I've also offered septarian stone, a reddish jasper, and patchoulI incense.

Thank you for your suggestions. I will keep them in mind.

I would not use the honey-flavored syrup as there isn't actually any honey in it. I'd look for the genuine article. And if you can find it, the famous Hymettus honey from Greece would be fantastic. It is made by bees that feed on the wild thyme growing on the slopes of the mountains in Greece, including on Mt. Olympus. You may not find it locally, but there are places to order it on-line.

Thank you. The honey from Greece sounds absolutely amazing!
