Merry Meet All,
There are fourteen more days till Winter Solstice. I hope you are all excited! The moon is in the waning crescent phase. The waning moon is a time of for study, meditation, and to do magick to banish harmful energies. The next Full Moon occurs on December 28, 2012.
I bought the Wild Wisdom of Faery Oracle Guidebook by Lucy Cavendish. The artwork is by Selina Fenech. This deck is AMAZING! As soon as I took it home with me, I felt a connection to the deck. The artwork is beautiful. I love this deck because I feel it really does reflect faerys’ essence. The images on the cards are stunning. At the top of each card is a number, a regular number, not a Roman numeral. The theme of the card is written at the bottom of each card and a few keywords. For instance, card number 4 is the StoryKeeper card. The keywords are “Tell your story, Legacy, Write your wisdom”. The image is of a faery seated on a throne. The face of the Green Man looks out at you from the top of the throne. The faery is writing her wisdom in a thick book. She looks relaxed and dreamy. Her long dark curly hair trails past her feet. Bare trees stand in the background. How can you not be inspired? A book accompanies the deck. This book too reflects faery wisdom and is quite thick. The artwork is beautiful. The artist survived cancer and completed the artwork for the deck. That must not have been an easy feat. I would highly recommend purchasing and using this deck. You will not regret it.
Speaking of magick, here are some ‘cool’ spells to cast this winter. Build a snowman as a poppet. Empower the snowman with the magickal task of being a guardian at the entrance to your property.
Channel your bad energy or bad luck into snowballs and throw them as far away as you can. The snowballs will banish the bad energy.
I love this spell! If someone is bothering you and won’t leave you alone, write their name on a slip of paper, and put the paper in an ice cube tray. Add camphor to the ice water and put the ice cube tray in the freezer. Leave the tray there and do not remove it till the person “chills” out. It does not hurt anyone and it does work.
Go for a walk in the woods. Watch the snow falling softly and listen to the silence. You might receive a message from the Divine.
