Ergi.

In some contexts, described as the shamefulness of seidh magic. In other contexts, this word and its derivatives are usually translated as lust or lewdness, specifically in the sense of sexual receptiveness. “Desirous of penetration”. Men use the word as an insult, accusing a foe of having submitted sexually like a woman. What Loki accuses Odin of is not being “womanish”, but of “args athal” - acting in a sexually receptive way. The context makes it clear that he was working with women’s magic.

In Volsathattr, the term is used to describe the horse’s phallus, which is an overt sexual symbol. Magically its purpose might have been to enable the “luck” or spiritual power of prosperity/fertility to “penetrate” the physical realm.

These references may help us to understand how effeminacy and passive homosexuality became equated with magical power. Effective magic requires the practitioner to unite the powers of the conscious and unconscious, of intelligence and emotion. Upsetting ordinary gender assumptions loosens the psyche and allows one to perceive in a new way. (x)
