Creating A Healing Bindrune

Creating A Healing Bindrune

I use a specific process when creating bindrunes. I could select them intentionally, but I prefer to let the runes decide the bindrune which is what I did today. I wanted the focus of the bindrune to be on healing. Many have been through so much lately with the recent hurricanes and senseless violence that […]

A Magickal Legacy Of Love And Light

A Magickal Legacy Of Love And Light

We lost a brother the other day. Raymond Buckland passed through the veil leaving a magickal legacy that witches, Wiccan or not, will embrace for years to come. His was a life well-lived and I confess to owning a couple of his books, Buckland’s Complete Book of Witchcraft as well as Wicca For One: The Path 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 […]

Witch Hunt?

Witch Hunt?

With our so-called president invoking the term witch hunt to describe all the investigations concerning him, I thought I’d discuss what a witch hunt really is. My ancestor, King James V of Scotland, a great-uncle, was convinced that Lady Janet Douglas of Glamis Castle, my 14th great-grandmother, used witchcraft in an attempt to poison him, seized […]

Tempering Priorities

Tempering Our Priorities

Temperance, the Son of Wands, 5 of Cups, Daughter of Wands, and the Mother of Pentacles comprise today’s tarot reading from the Wild Unknown Tarot. There is one card from the Major Arcana, one from the suit of Cups, and three Court cards, two from Wands and one from Pentacles. Missing from the spread is […]

A Serene Approach

A Serene Approach

We begin in ruin and end in catalytic change, with a serene Goddess in the middle of it all, prescient given the numerology of 1 or new beginnings and the development of the self. We come full circle with the number 1 and this reading indicates that process. Three cards from the Major Arcana along with […]

Emerging From The Inner Chrysalis Of Self

Emerging From The Inner Chrysalis Of Self

Whenever I get a numerology of thirteen in a tarot reading I consider it a Master Witch number. Not that numerologists would necessarily agree, but I’m a witch who was born on the 13th and it figures prominently in my ancestry and life. Sometimes I reduce it to 4 reflecting structure but today I prefer […]

Inner Mastery

The Inner Mastery of Self

We all seek the inner mastery of Self, even if we don’t realize we’re doing so. However, when it’s a focused experience the benefits of that level of self-discipline are maximal. Using the Wild Unknown Tarot deck I drew The High Priestess, The Chariot, and the Daughter of Pentacles to explore what influences contribute to […]

Radiating Our Eternal Presence ~ Runecasting for 17 July 2017

Radiating Our Eternal Presence ~ Runecasting for 17 July 2017

I’ve been working with runes for most of my life. Still, I always feel as if I’m beginning anew every time I cast them. I use runes for divination and create bindrunes for use in rune magick. I love Tarot, but runes are my go-to divination tool if I really need to understand or know […]

Allowing And The Illusion Of Control

Allowing And The Illusion Of Control

At first blush, Failure and Ruin don’t exactly portend a positive outcome with the Wheel of Fortune, but then that’s Tarot for you. Things aren’t always as they seem. Haindl uses Crowley’s titles for both the 7 of Stones (Disks in the Thoth Tarot) and the 10 of Swords respectively offering a negative connotation to […]
