To dress a candle basically means to add extra stuff to your candle. You can add different ingredients. You can add oils and herbs and stones. Basically, it's a way of dressing it up for a specific purpose. Think of it like you would when you dress up to go on a date. Your normal clothes typically will work fine depending on what you're doing, but you can change the way that you dress to tailor your outfit to the specific event that you're going to.
This self-love tarot spread uses five cards laid out in the shape of an upward-pointing arrow. This shape is specific because you want your self-love to grow! As you shuffle your deck, really focus on what you want to achieve and how you feel about yourself. Be honest. That's very important. You can't expect to grow and get honest answers from your cards if you aren't honest with yourself.
This topic has been on my mind for at least a week now and I have honestly hesitated in writing this post. I know some people are going to be upset. Some people are going to scream but you have to be inclusive to EVERYONE and honestly, I'm just not here for it anymore. To be fair, this idea didn't just pop into my head. It was sparked by a tweet I saw from Oregon Wood Witch and from there it just spiraled into a mess of thoughts that I haven't quite been able to wrap my head around.
This book was refreshing to see because of the way it approaches learning tarot. This is not a book that you pick up to learn the meanings of the cards.
Journaling is a staple in my everyday life. It wasn't always like that but over the years I have come to realize the many benefits journaling has to offer. These benefits go beyond just helping you remember your day or keeping your thoughts straight. I wanted to share them with you because lately, journaling has taken up a large significance in my life.
Samhain is approaching and sometimes the kiddos like to get involved in the celebrations. Instead of letting the children walk around the home carrying an open flame, why not do arts and crafts instead?
A blue moon is not actually a blue moon. The moon doesn't turn blue -- even though that would pretty neat for a blue moon -- but there are two different definitions for the term "blue moon". The older definition says that a blue moon refers to the third full moon in a season with four full moons. It has something to do with correcting the lunar cycle and making sure that when people were planting and growing their crops by the moon calendar, that seasons didn't "come too early".
I created a new month tarot spread a while ago and I've been meaning to revisit the spread for a while now. This is a tarot spread that I use for myself every month. It is also a reading you can get from my shop or, if you're a patron, you get one free every month. So, why did I want to revisit this topic? Well, there are a few reasons. The first reason is that at the beginning of the month, this is the most-used search term that gets people to my site. The second is that, even though it is popular, people still have questions.
Recently I read an article on NPR about recycling that got me very...huffy? Angry? Frustrated? Hurt? Upset? I don't know exactly how to describe how it made me feel, but it wasn't a great feeling. It's called How Big Oil Misled The Public Into Believing Plastic Would Be Recycled, and I'm kind of embarrassed that it made me as upset as it did. Part of me feels like I should have known better (because I'm a cynic) and part of me feels silly for believing that anyone would try to make recycling an efficient process.
Magick sigil ink is simply that -- a special ink that you create using ingredients chosen with intention and correspondences that fit the sigil's purpose. Today on YouTube, I released a video detailing my very simple method for creating this ink and I wanted to share it with you here, too.
