Stocking up

Greetings everyone,

I haven’t been active lately. I apologize greatly. Mainly it’s due to my mood and health issues. Not wanting to talk lately. Well I thought I would let you know that I have got the chance to stock up on some supplies, not a lot, but some that will keep me happy. We have a local store called Earth Magic down here near us and I went there for the first time. I got some Sandalwood incense (so can’t wait to burn it), a new incense holder, two candle holders, six candlesticks (two white, two green, two black), and a small statue of Lord Anubis in jackal form. I was very happy to say the least. I’m going to be doing some cleaning tomorrow or Sunday and have a whole new altar set up. I’ll take a picture and post when I’m set up. Thanks for hanging with me. Talk soon.

Is death to be afraid of?

In the past couple of weeks I had been practicing with my tarot cards and reading about them and my favorite card, believe it or not, is death. Now if you pull out that card from the Egyptian Major Arcana from Llewellyn, guess who represents Death? Anubis does. 🙂 That’s not why Death is my favorite card, but it is a major bonus. 🙂

There are many people who fear death in this world and when or if they get a reading that shows the Death card, they assume that a physical death is coming their way. Death means many things in this world, not just leaving the physical world to the next plane. It can be scary. Let’s continue with the Death card. Death is change. It is the continuing of going on into a next phase. So sometimes people may be to comfortable where they are, but they need to be somewhere else in life and this scares them or makes them very uncomfortable.

A non-physical death could be a loss of a job, new relationship, new home, etc… If people don’t accept this ‘death’ and change with it then they are being stagnant. Staying where you are is bad. It’s like being a ghost and not moving on to the other plane of existence. Who wants to do that?

So think about it like this, there are going to be changes in our lives and you can choose to roll with them or stay put and stagnate till some one forces you to move. Death aka change will probably have to force you off your ass at one point in time. Don’t fear Death, it’s not an enemy in any form it takes. Those are just my thoughts.

Found my BOS

Well I found my BOS. My original one that I had been working one when we were living in the house that were renting from. I’m happy because there is a lot of information that I had put in there and still need to put in there. I don’t have to refer back to the books. However, I will still work on the mini-BOS I have been working on to take with me. I’m especially happy because I have a lot of divination information and can work with my tarot cards and also regular deck cards. I was just beginning to work with regular deck cards before we left. Thank the Lord and Lady! Well, that’s it for now!

Book of Shadows

Wow! It’s been a while since I have written. Forgive me everyone. It’s one thing after another with the health and all. So we all know that the Book of Shadows (BOS) is one of the most important tool to the Witch. However, how many do you think you should have? Do you think there should be a set number? Should there be a certain way you should style it? What are your thoughts?

Well here are my thoughts. First, I think there is no set number on the BOS. You could have 50 if you wanted. It would be a lot to keep up with, but hey you’re the witch and if you want to work it that way, go for it. Second, no, there is no set number. So if there is someone saying that there is a set number, tell them they are wrong or just don’t talk to them. Third, there is no certain style. I watched a bunch of witch movies when I was young and I always loved the traditional black grimoire looking book. However, nowadays, the BOS can be a notebook till you can purchase something else, it can be a plain journal, a scrapbook, or any other things.

The reason why I wanted to start this conversation is because I am starting a smaller BOS. My bigger one is locked away somewhere and I am taking the time to make a small BOS because it is important to me to have the correspondences and all the information I need. It is small enough to fit in my purse so that it can come with me. It is a black journal and I am using black pen for it. For the correspondences, like the sun phases, I made a sun sign at the end.

So use your imagination. Let me know what you think.
