The Will And The Path Ahead

I like using non-traditional Tarot decks. They reflect the author’s perceptions and it’s interesting to see how their depictions correspond with traditional interpretations. My favorite is Crowley’s Thoth deck but the one I’m using today, The Wild Unknown Tarot deck, is hand-drawn, full of interesting lines, and replaces people with wildlife and I really like […]

Donald, Your Allegiance Is With The Wrong People

Donald, Your Allegiance Is With The Wrong People

Hate is such a destructive emotion. And when it’s put into action, people get hurt or worse. We’ve seen you, our current president, spread the blame around after a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville turned violent and a young woman was killed. The mother of that young woman refused to take your call because of […]

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

Protection Bindrune: Binding Our Will Into A Single Focus

For situations beyond our control, a protection bindrune might be necessary. They can protect the individual from harm or interrupt the behavior of another. For this bindrune, I decided to focus its energies into a sigil that helps and individual stand in their own power and more effectively communicate their needs and boundaries. As usual, I […]

And Then A Turtle Showed Up

Whenever I happen upon a new animal or insect on our property I take notice. Sometimes they’re just passing through, but sometimes they stay and yesterday we noticed a turtle sunning itself on a plank the geese and ducks use to access the dock in our pond. We’ve lived here for thirty-six years, raising our […]

The End Of A Presidency That Never Should Have Been

The End Of A Presidency That Never Should Have Been

Donald, you may have just ended your presidency today. You couldn’t stop yourself from one more unhinged rant and you may have sealed your coffin forever with your failure to simply denounce Nazis and white nationalists. Instead, you continued your sad attack on the so-called alt-left, whatever that is. Speaking with Joy Reid on MSNBC, […]

The Blessed Conduit

The Blessed Conduit

My first love in divination is rune divination and magick. So it’s nice when I can use a runic spread to define a tarot reading. Algiz is the rune I’ve used today and represents protection and a connection with Divine Presence. Known as a guardian rune, its top three branches represent Elemental Air, Fire, and Water […]

A Battle Of Wills At The Expense Of The World

A Battle Of Wills At The Expense Of The World

I had intended to do a really nice tarot reading with the 3 of Swords, The World, and the 3 of Cups but when Donald started taunting Lil’ Un with threats of war on social media, I decided that a Thoth reading was better followed by a runecasting. We need to know what we’re facing […]

Just Don't Start?

Just Don’t Start?

Here we go again. Donald, you’re channeling Nancy. Only now, instead of just say no, it’s just don’t start. Wow. That’s so easy. Donald, do you understand that a significant part of the opioid crisis involves prescriptions written by doctors? I’m certain that most doctors don’t want anyone to become addicted, but to ignore this aspect of the […]

Suffering The Biggest Fool Of All

Suffering The Biggest Fool Of All

It’s said that witches do not suffer fools gladly. And that’s true. We don’t. And I’m certain that it’s no doubt difficult for most witches to sit quietly while the biggest fool of all occupies the White House, least of all me. I spend some time on Twitter each day because it’s interesting to see […]

Transformation Within

Transformation Within

The 8 of Stones, The Tower, and the King of Wands comprise today’s general tarot influences. The Hanged Man is placed in the position of hidden influence and the 5 of Cups represents the outcome. Hexagrams are attached to both the 8 of Stones and the 5 of Cups involving the concept of the small with the preponderance of the small and […]
