    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    Crafts for Witches: DIY Oracle Cards     Merry meet. I have several oracle decks, but only one really speaks to me – the 41-card Lunar Nomad Oracle by Shaheen Miro that was based on the Lenormand deck. Some oracle cards are numbered with a word or two. Some come with a whole paragraph on them. Some have guidebooks explaining the creator’s intent. One of the best ways I can think of to really get to know the creator’s intent is to create your own deck. Think of it as art magic. Oracle cards can be a divination tool and a prompt for introspection. I find them helpful for answering…

    As Above So Below (How the Stars Became Our Hearts)

      The Roots of the Earth: Acknowledging Our Divine Heritage The moons of the previous month no doubt have you reeling in some way. Moons have always been the way the universe speaks directly to us. Even humans with no spiritual background whatsoever feel like a full moon does something to them. The reason for this is, it’s absolutely true. Spirit or no spirit, the moon exerts its gravitational force on every atom in your body, which of course subsequently effect brain chemistry. Though this can be explained scientifically, it doesn’t mean the universe isn’t awake, and communicating to you consciously. This is to say, regardless of you spiritual background,…

    Comparing the 4 of Cups and the 4 of Wands     Many Tarot cards can seem similar enough to each other that interpreting them when they both show up in a spread can be challenging. One way to achieve a deeper understanding of a card is to compare it to another card. This month we will compare two Minor Arcana cards, the 4 of Cups and the 4 of Wands. We will explore similarities between these two cards, and then we will look at the differences. I will be using card images from the Rider Tarot Deck for this analysis. The basic messages or traditional interpretations of these two…

    Book Review – You Already Know: How to Access Your Intuition and Find Your Divine Life Path by Helen Jacobs

    Book Review You Already Know How to Access Your Intuition and Find Your Divine Life Path by Helen Jacobs 344 Pages     I started this book just as the quarantine in the US began, so doing the exercise of creating silence and sacred space was comfortable. Easier than it would have been for me before the quarantine. I haven’t made this many notes for a book in a long time. Since it was an e-book, I had to have my spiral notebook close by to make my notes. I always stop reading and write what I want to remember right away; otherwise, I forget too quickly things that catch…

    Book Review – The Hidden Goddess: The Quest for the Divine Feminine in the Judeo-Christian Tradition-from Asherah to Mary Magdalene by Laurie Martin-Gardener

    Book Review The Hidden Goddess The Quest for the Divine Feminine in the Judeo-Christian Tradition-from Asherah to Mary Magdalene by Laurie Martin-Gardener 104 Pages   Evidence of Goddess worship goes back 25,000 years. In this book, Laurie Martin-Gardner presents well-researched evidence of the goddess’ wide worship among early Hebrew people citing archaeological and Biblical evidence. In the 1970s, evidence came to light that began to show that the mother Asherah was honoured alongside the father Yahweh. Although this evidence remains highly contested among traditional Hebrew scholars that view Yahweh as the one and true god, this makes sense when linked with what we know about ancient Hebrews who saw life…

    Page of Pentacles   (The Page of Pentacles card is from the artist Ciro Marchetti http://www.ciromarchetti.com/)**   Let’s continue our work with the Tarot “Royals” by examining the Page of Pentacles. As always, we will begin by reviewing some basic information. A Tarot deck has 78 cards.
