Tricksterling Rune/Tarot Reading
July 22, 2014

Mannaz- The Self; the individual or the human race. Your attitude toward others and their attitudes towards you. Friends and enemies, social order.

Othala (Reversed)- Lack of order, bad karma, prejudice, unhappiness

Ansuz- Revealing message…

Yeah, apart from the ‘man’ bit this seems pretty much to hit the nail on the head. Thanks for the readings.

A while ago I heard a version of this story where Athena has pity on Medusa and turns her into the gorgon to protect her from all men. A gift instead of a punishment for her brother’s crimes.
It always stuck with me, so here’s a doodle.

This has come up on my blog a few times, and I REALLY really am struck by how beautiful this is. so.. reblogging it to you guys. Isn’t it lovely?


I can get behind this version of the story, so hard.

polyeucte-melitena:

Pierre-Narcisse Guérin (French, 1774-1833), Morpheus and Iris, 1811. Oil on canvas, 251 x 178 cm.

Iris is the goddess of rainbows and Hera’s attendant/messenger
Morpheus is the Titan god of dreams, leader of the Oneiroi, and grandson of Nyx, the personification of night.

THE ONEIROI were the dark-winged Daimones (Spirits) of dreams. They emerged each night like a flock of bats from their cavernous home in Erebos, the land of eternal darkness beyond the rising sun.

Giving out Free Tarot Readings (again)

theskepticwitch:

So! I’ve decided I’m giving free readings for the next hmm…. 4 days? I’ve just been in the mood to practice because I feel as though I’ve lost faith in my readings, being that I mainly read only for myself. Also, I’m on vacation so unlike last time, I’ll be quicker with responds. I really apologize for the last time did free readings. 

I’ll be doing three cards readings so you can choose a variation of themes such as past, present, future; good, bad, surprise; body, mind, sould; not to do, situation, to do; etc.

Also have the mini Waite Rider and Shadowscape if you have preference over which deck I choose.

You don’t have to follow me but that would be nice and I really do encourage giving feedback. Even though I get feedback from my friends and clients in real life, I got close to none last time and that made me sad because I felt like I wasn’t learning anything.

Well, that’s that so get those requests coming! Feel free to be anon, it’ll be nice to have a name though and if you don’t want me to publish it publicly, just let me know!

So, witchy/magic knitters, how many of you have done or are doing hexipuffs?

wittedknitch:

Otherwise known as The Beekeeper’s Quilt.

See I’m wondering about stuffing some of the puffs with protective, loving, calming etc. ingredients, but I’m worried about them just slipping through the stitches. Particularly if they’re spices.

Have any of you stuffed knitted things with spell/magic fillings before? What did you use? Have you made a hexipuff quilt before and did you spell the hexipuffs?

Could you stick little silken bags you get in craft shops into the hexipuffs with the ingredients inside them? That way they won’t fall through the holes, but they’re still be able to ‘breathe’ and won’t be shut away in plastic bags.

Sunday Spreads time!

Alright so I know these spreads are pretty basic BUT I really needed some straight shooters today for a very specific situation I wanted to ask about.

Anyway, I think some of you will find these useful. I’ve found the ‘Wires’ spread to be particularly useful in that sometimes it’s good to know where the other person thinks you stand, because that helps you determine if there are any misunderstandings between you.

I’m also thinking of making graphics for the spreads I’ve found while digging through the tarot forums (with full credit to the original creators of course). What do you guys think?
