the fact that my aesthetic changes everyday is a problem i think. part of me wants to go ghost hunting and dress very messy and dark, another part of me wants to be a forest god who dresses like a peasant boy, and another part of me wants to just disappear.
The Card of the Day for Wednesday, May 12, from White Numen Sacred Animal Tarot, is the Two of Cups. We see on this card a bright sun over a snow-capped mountain, and in the foreground two women dancing, their feet in the water and the wind dancing around them. The women hold one chalice in linked hands while the second floats above them; a serpent emerges from each chalice, their heads framed in front of the sun. One woman is dressed as if from ancient Greece or Rome, with a tunic, a stole, and a golden laurel crown; her red hair reaches down past her waist. Her counterpart wears a modern dress that is covered with six-pointed stars and circles, with golden anklets, bracelets, and necklaces; a golden crown sits on her beautiful dark brown hair.
Cups is the suit of emotion and relationships, and twos in tarot often refer to a balance or duality, sometimes a decision between two alternatives. The artist refers to a joyful ritual or magical union, and now I notice that both women have their eyes closed, expressions of deep concentration on their faces.
These two women come from very different places, even very different times; they appear to be different races. And yet the classical elements are lined up behind them: the fire of the sun, the earth of the mountain, the air skirling around them, the water around their feet. The ritual brings the women into a sacred unity, not only with each other, but with all that is.
I'm not sure exactly what this card is saying to me this morning. It may become clear later in the day, or it may be that I'll sit with the mystery for a while before I understand it. My sense is that I need some quiet reflection (like the last couple of cards have said!) to consider next steps. It's so easy to fill time with busy-work, with tasks that may not really even be productive. Not that I would ever embrace busy-work just to avoid spiritual lessons that I might need to learn ..................
è la fase lunare che vede l'astro d'argento rivolto verso la terra nel suo lato oscuro. È la luna dei nuovi inizi, delle speranze, dei sogni, dei desideri, della nascita e della cura. A questa fase è legata la dea anziana, come per esempio Cailleach.
la luna crescente
questa luna è legata alla crescita, all'ispirazione e all'abbondanza; é il momento per dare vita a nuovi progetti. È particolarmente indicata per incantesimi e magie relative all’accrescimento, la prosperità e la protezione ma anche rituali d’amore, di avvicinamento e di attrazione.
la luna piena
la luna piena è un momento estremamente importante in magia poiché rappresenta il culmine assoluto dell’energia lunare, pertanto sarà possibile effettuare qualsiasi tipo di magia. Inoltre durante questa fase è possibile effettuare incantesimi o rituali per propiziare la fortuna e la protezione.
la luna calante
questa fase è particolarmente indicata per tutti quei rituali volti al distacco, al bando, all’allontanamento delle negatività.
You are establishing a firm financial foundation through your savings and investments although it has not been easy. Part of the problem is the fear that all your shrewd efforts in getting ahead won’t be enough in the long term. Rather than get yourself tied up in a knot today about what may happen at some future point you should celebrate what you have achieved so far. By doing this there is a hint that it will alleviate your current fears.
You might be losing something significant for this New Moon.
You might be in a relationship or you're about to enter a new relationship. This connection promises passion and emotional satisfaction. This something significant you're going to lose might be your... virginity. This New Moon promises you sexual attraction and sensual fulfillment. However, also consider the consequences that this one-night fun might bring.
A completely new beginning is in store for you.
You've been handling a lot of responsibilities and it has been exhausting for you. For this New Moon, this efforts are going to pay off. You'll be able to receive an opportunity that you've been working for. Don't fret. You are well-prepared to accept this chance. This is meant for you to accept.
There is something that you've been waiting for. The time of waiting is almost over.
Someone (might be a Virgo, Capricorn, or Taurus) or you have been working on something for quite a while. Soon, you'll receive clarity about this, which would bring an end to your waiting. However, this might be a painful ending.
You are about to do some self-reflection.
Your theme for this New Moon is self-love. Someone (might be a Sagittarius, Aries, or Leo) or you did a... rash decision, which hurts you in the process. You may isolate yourself in order to heal from this. By the time that you realize where things went wrong, you've already healed and moved on.
Hello, I'd like to thank you for my reading. Considering that my father, cousin, and dog (had to include her lol) all have their birthday in the next few months, I find it highly likely that there'll be a celebration. I was actually surprised about that though because we weren't planning on actual celebrating (like with a party and so on) because of COVID restrictions where I live. It's nice to know we might be able to celebrate soon. (I'll try to stay more present as well~) Thanks again <3 <3
I'm glad it resonated. You're welcome and thank you for the trust✨
So I try to make it very clear that I make mistakes. As far as we all know, I’m only human (people have suspected I am an alien of some sort, idk why... my squidilly splooch is just the same as everyone else's, goddamnit) and I would like people to learn from my mistakes and then not do them. You know? Do better.
Read more- Witch History, Basic witch practices, read up about other culture and all that. It took me a hot minute on my journey to start doing it and I regret it. Its like rejecting the tutorial like oh it’s all the same and having to revisit the settings and control menu again and again.
Just focus on a couple things at a time- This is admittedly one of my biggest issues, because I’m like Well I want to learn about this and this and this and this and this and--you see where it gets bad. Calm thy nipples, Herfeffine Heferfefer! (If you understand that names reference, I like you.) You’ll get to learn what you want eventually. Have patience and learn to be well acquainted with a couple things before moving on to the next. Don’t spread yourself too thin.
There is not one way to read tarot- This is beyond learning meanings that your neat little booklet that you get with a deck. Not only should you try and focus on neutral meanings for each card and not associate them with good or bad meanings, but also how your intuition is working with what you see. Your cards are there to help you illustrate what a possible answer or path may be. Treat it as such. I’ve heard people say go through it as if it were a story being told and I really like that method. Tarot is a tool for your intuition and a tool of divine communication. It is an extension of the mind and methods to see become as individual as you are.
Just because you feel like you’re ready to move on, doesn’t mean that you are- Sometimes we get a little overzealous and that's fine. We’re excited, we want to learn, get better, wiser, stronger, etc. But just....hold your damn horses. Don’t force yourself to try and catch up with other witches that you may see. You’re gonna have a bad time if you’re more focused on being on someone else's level instead of just working within and focusing on yourself. I guarantee you, the witches we look up to suffered the same slow grind as you did. Respect that power crawl boo. We all go through it.
Not everything is a lesson or a point from the universe. - Be able to see the difference between a strange occurrence and coincidences and actual lessons. If you’re like me who thought damn near everything was some karmic lesson you’re gonna end up a paranoid mess trying to decode and decipher EVERYTHING. Whooo, just thinking back to it makes me tired. Relax some weird shit happens. The world is weird. Sometimes, you can even catch someone else’s karmic lesson, doesn’t mean you need to get involved, it just means you see some shit. And that's okay. Sometimes you just see a lot of shit and as long as you’re not seeing things you’ll be okay.
Your Health Takes Priority- Self explanatory. Mental and Physical damnit. Your mentor shouldn’t be draining you every time you’re with them. You do not need to harm yourself for a spell like Hollywood loves to do sometimes. Here, lemme supernatural style gash my fucking hand open for a spell that requires six drops of blood. NO. I swear to all that is holy and not I will bap you with rolled up magazines.
Just...be reasonable. I generally trust the lot of you, but there are reasons certain warnings exist you know? Also, I cannot stress this enough. Witchcraft does not have to be 24/7 I swear. You can take breaks. You can back out of things. Relax and recoup when you can. You owe it to yourself. Just fucking take care of yourself mkay!?
NEVER EVER be afraid to ask for help- Some of us (*cough cough* Me included *COUGH*) can be super prideful and stick with our problem like its fine when we know good and well we’re ill-equiped for whatever the fuck just happened. Swallow it and ask for help. Hell, I can tell you about a time where I was dealing with some awful spirit I had no experience with and was like I handled some growly bastards like this before and then it turned out to be nothing close to what I experienced before and got my ass handed to me before I limped back to a mentor like a dipshit. Don’t be like past me. Don’t be a dipshit. Just. Get. Help. Even if it’s just advice, just fucking do it. Whatever it is, take the L and get some reinforcements. Learned this the hard way. Learn from my mistakes please.
That’s all I have for you. Please be safe out there, love yourself and others and don’t do stupid shit.
