Stormraven (aka Diranda) is a semi-retired professional science fiction writer and artist living in Arizona. (pen-name Tabitha Bradley)
I have been a pagan since 1992 and has been dedicated to Loki since 1995.
I have studied and practiced Asatru, Kemeticism, Wicca and general Paganism.
I have worked with Bast, Morgan leFay, Sekhmet, Thor, Odin and Sigyn as well. I am dedicated exclusively to Loki, but have a continual working relationship with Sigyn, Thor and (to a lesser extent) Odin.
I have a solid background in Egyptian Paganism, as I was dedicated to Bast from 1992 to 1999 and spent a lot of time studying Kemeticism and Egyptian Wicca. I have a friendly connection with the Sekhmet Goddess Temple in Nevada, although I no longer work with Bast or Sekhmet as a primary focus.
Thor and Odin have been with me my entire life and my relationship with them is warm (especially Thor). Thor’s always been a friend, and quite supportive. Though I’m not dedicated to him, nor plan to be, he’s such a sweetie and I love him dearly.
My relationships with Odin and Sigyn are complicated to explain. The one thing I can say is that they’re both dear to me. I am not dedicated to Odin and I respect deeply, those who are and who get how important that is. As a Lokean, Odin treats me a lot like he does Thor and Loki, and my experience with him is similar to that of a mysterious, wise and unpredictable mentor/teacher/wiseman with a rare sense of humor. (You can interpret that ‘rare’ however you wish–this is Odin we’re talking about).
Sigyn is… Sigyn. She’s even harder for me to describe than Odin. I have a prayer bead string I made for her on Loki’s altar and keys represent her to me. There’s not a lot else I can say as it’s very complex.
I am a professional psychic, my particular focus being Tarot. However I have been working with playing card divination, which seems to resonate to Loki much more. Also I have been drawn to digging out my pendulum to work with him as well.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
