believed that if you see a deer at a graveyard you should chant the name of
Cernunnos and he will lead you towards “new birth” in spiritual terms. Part
of the poem for Cernunnos was “Hail Cernunnos Stag of wood come to us we
pray you, cover us with Earthly faith and an adventurous love of life and that first
part is pretty inspiring. The last parts pretty nice it is “worship in the dark night of
mystery embrace Nema”. Cernunnos is also known as the lord of the Vertility and
Abundance.
