One of my headmates turned 44 yesterday. Due to some other stuff going on I didn't get a chance to do a reading for him, so I'm doing his birthday reading today. He doesn't really want one, but I'm doing one anyway.

Deck: UFO
Spread: Birthday

I mentioned in a previous post that Tormund gives me Green Man feels. Part of it, I'm sure, is that he is a wildling, from beyond the wall, and my first GoT headmate who isn't a member of the noble class.

I'm hoping an oracle reading with the Heart of the Faerie oracle will help.

1. The Queen of the Golden Bough
Support, Soul healing, equilibrium
"This is the queen of all things spiritual, or healing, and of transformation"
This card represents deep, almost primal healing, a soothing spirit. This is actually really funny, because yesterday (and really throughout this whole weekend) I have a lot of family stuff to deal with and I'm pretty stressed out, and he has been a very calming presence. He's excellent. Last night in particular, he was great, even asking me what he could do to help.

2. The Hidden One
Awareness, Attention, self-absorption
This is a card for paying attention. Observing everything and absorbing it. Tormund is a natural tracker, very good with directions, and incredibly observant. He can spot details and patterns and he encourages me to do the same.

3. The Big Behind
New perspective, knowing your options, survival
Again, this feels a lot like just how he is. He's always looking at two or three options, planning for every eventuality, because that's how you survive beyond the wall.

Honestly everything is mostly pointing to the fact he's a wildling, he grew up more in tune with the forest and nature, especially since that far north always has snow and is cold. So I think I might be reading too much into it.

First Day!

Bit of a cool astrological event that lined up with my first day back in classes. I'm starting my second year of accounting.

Today, Mercury in retrograde ended. Mercury in retrograde tends to bring bad luck, or at least strange happenings. Ironically enough, this retrograde cycle started at my stepbrother's wedding shower not quite a month ago.

Mercury in retrogrades are things I don't often pay attention to, as I'm not very in tune with Mercury's energy. But for those people who are, Mercury in retrograde can make people feel just out of sorts, unable to really put their finger on why.

Mercury is associated with ideas and intellectual energy, so its particularly auspicious that it's back in it's regular function on a back to school day for my area, and for m e personally. I suspect it'll be a good symbol for the upcoming semester.

For Gemini's in particular, this is a really good day, as Mercury is strongly associated with the Twins.

Went to the psychic fair again! You can read about my previous experience here. I went with my sister in law and we had fun together. She loved the Moonology booth, which I went to last time.

I got my aura and chakras checked and they were pretty much the same as last time, so the guy didn't charge me, and Brittany got to have hers done instead. She and I have a lot of similarities, which is cool. It's probably why we get along. I get along better with her than my other stepbrother's girlfriend.

I didn't have another reading done, just because of money. The next fair is in January, so I'll save some birthday/Christmas money for that.

Only Thor came with us. The clones and Bran were supposed to go, but I suspect Thomas had a bad day with his recovery. Our newest headmate, a certain queer ginger I'm majorly crushing on, came with too.

I promised Tormund a card reading, so I'm gonna give him one. I think I'll do this reading for all my new arrivals.

The crystal place in town did a Chakra day, and it was fun. Not as much as I hoped, but it was good for their first event.

I won a 15 minute neurospa session, and this is my entry into the crystal grid contest:

I went in without any idea of what I'm doing, but my intuition guided me pretty well. This is the write up I included with my submission to the Rock Spa itself.
My crystal grid is a bit outside the box. The centrepiece is my pride and joy, an obsidian crystal ball. Surrounding it are four raw obsidian chunks with four Smokey quartz pyramids between. On the north and south ends of the grid are tumbled Jade. A row of three tektite flank the ball, and four quartz points direct energy inwards.

This grid is set up to help me as I transition back to school. I am attending Conestoga college from accounting, and I'm in my second (of three) years. I moved unto this program from bookkeeping, and it's brought new stresses and challenges. The intend of this grid is to give me a focal point, where I can focus my stressed out energy and accept harmony and tranquility. I plan on leave it set up until I am back at school in September.

Obsidian is a protective stone, and absorbs negative energies. Smokey quartz helps to elevate moods and manage stress. Jade encourages tranquility and harmony. Finally, tektite is a high vibrational stone, associated with expanded consciousness.

The best part of today though was the eclipse. It was only partial here, but it was an amazing experience.

There was a post going around, I think on Facebook, saying what the eclipse had in store for you based on your zodiac sign. Mine mentioned epiphanies and I shrugged it off and put it out of my mind.

After the eclipse, I was talking about how I remember my first eclipse, which was a lunar eclipse. I also remember Hale-Bopp. Between those two things....It was my first religious experience. I was six or seven.

And today really affirmed that. Space and planets...those are what matters most to me in my spiritual path. Crystals are great, and I want to like herbs. But space...thats the real core of things. And suddenly....there it is. The answer I was hunting for. I feel like i have a direction now. Space.

And in the car I realized, that's an epiphany. I did have an epiphany.

quetzalzotz: (Tarot)
I'm doing a tarot reading but I'm keeping it on my regular blog, [personal profile] enchanted_manit  because it's kinda intense and it feels more right to post it there.
quetzalzotz: (Tarot)
It's been an extra rough week on top of a rough life lol. I just wanted to get some insight into my life in general, with all four aspects looked at.

1. Physical situation-Queen of Swords
This card is about resilience. I like the shark imagery on the card, too. It's a powerful card, and to me it almost says that right now, physically, I'm pretty good. I'm pretty resilient to the stresses that are getting to me in other aspects of my life.

2. Emotional situation-King of Wands
This is a card of practicality, and encourages exploring passions. And I do think I've been doing that a little. I've been enjoying my bullet journal and I've been trying to write. But I've definitely struggled sometimes, as in my executive dysfunction makes me procrastinate and procrastinate.

3. Mental situation-Two of Pentacles
This card represents options, and specifically that there are choices on the horizons. That's been the main source of my stress: what my living situation will be like and what my schooling will look like. With my aunts potential health issues, I 
may end up being a full time caregiver and I'll have to delay my schooling. There's so many variables and this is a huge source of stress.

4. Spiritual situation-The Star
This card represents hope and following your heart. I do feel like I'm on the right path with my spiritual stuff, and that I'm going to reach that star, or goal, I have.

5. Physical self care-The Wheel
This is a card of luck and destiny and going with the flow. To me, this is saying that my self care for my physical self is in a good place. I'm working on eating food I make myself, and adding more variety, and that's good for right now. I can focus on other aspects.

6. Emotional self care-Three of Cups
This card can indicate a reunion. This is a friendship card and indicates spending time with people who make you happy and who you love. Let other's help you.

7. Mental self care-Eight of Wands
This card's keyword is travel and BOY OH BOY I WOULD LOVE TO TRAVEL. I would love to get away, for three or four days and just mentally recharge. Over the last few weeks I've looked at placed like Great Wolf Lodge and other hotels and destinations to just go to and unwind. If I had the money I'd be on vacation. I'd be doing something. Just me and my headmates. Peaceful. Not to mention day trips like to Playdium even though summer is the WRONG time to go.

8. Spiritual self care-The Angel of the Ocean (Temperance)
Healing. I need to spend some time healing and doing more spiritual healing either on myself or with someone else. This card also indicates being patient. My spiritual path isn't a sprint, it's a marathon.

New Deck!

Jul. 10th, 2017 06:31 pm
quetzalzotz: (Tarot)
I got two new tarot decks and I'm testing out the Oceanic Tarot. It's SO PRETTY

And it looks like it'll be straightforward. The cards are almost laid out like an oracle deck with keywords on the cards themselves.

I wanted some insight on what's going on with me and my xeno stuff. Like, I've always been into some aliens. Spock, Maul, and I went through a huge phase before Hex made me schedule my shit, where I was involved with a ton of different aliens from various Star Trek cultures including Klingon, Romulan, Vorta, Andorian,Ferengi, who knows...
It calmed down, but once I invited Dukat back, it's gotten more intense. I'm sure part of it is fangirling with my lizard fucker friends I met on Tumblr, but I doubt it's all them, because I'm also feeling things for Yondu.

So I found a spread called "What Just happened" so I'm going to do that.

1. What's happened?-Nine of Swords-Anxiety
Well, the last 24 hours have been super stressful because my my aunt is having some of the same issues that my mom had before she was diagnosed with bladder cancer. So it's been rough. On top of that, there's the regular panic I've been having in general with life. So I'm pretty much just always anxious.

2. What am I feeling?-Ace of Wands-Growth
The book specifies this can indicate spiritual growth, which is where I'm moving in my life. I'm trying to grow spiritually. But I'm surprised at this because I'm not actually feeling a lot of growth and currently I'm feeling more stagnant. Though, I am feeling like I'm growing in general. I'm cooking for myself, as best I can.
The card also mentioned pregnancy, which reminds me of the dream I had, and the seahorse, funnily enough, reminds me of a fanart I saw for Mermay with seahorse Yondu (his species are marsupials so of course pregnant seahorse fanart happened)

3. What do I need that I'm not receiving? -Eight of Swords-Restriction
I need to restrict myself? Well, this is probably true. I spend a lot of money all the time. Though the book says I'm being restricted, which also makes sense. Mentally I'm restricted for how much I can do, spoon wise. I can't make three meals a day for myself sometimes, so that leads to me having multiple cheese sandwiches as a meal. So I need energy and spoons. This is not surprising.

4. What am I asking for?-The Sun-Happiness
Jesus, hit the nail on the head why don't you? I honestly don't remember the last time I was truly happy, but I have been having fun with Dukat. So I guess I think that the xeno stuff will make me happy. That may or may not be true, but that's what I'm feeling.

I asked what would happen if I indulged and just went full alien orgy and the card I pulled was the Page of Pentacles, which represents opportunity.
To me it says It could go either way. If an opportunity presents itself, such as someone contacting me, or something, I can go for it and it could be okay.

quetzalzotz: (Tarot)
I am, once again, having problems with crushes. So I'm doing the same reading I did for Kaecilius, but this time for Yondu. Fitting that it's another Marvel problem.

1. The situation-Feather of Skulls (Knave of Wands)
Shaman of Fire. Abundance, ample resources, capacity for recovery, transformation. Fire is an action suit, which is interesting because I've been not acting.

2. Action-Horse of Crystals (Knight of Cups)
Ally of the Water. "A capacity to dream that can liberate the spirit or lose it amidst useless reveries. Importance of an oneiric life."
I don't know what this means.

3. Why am I struggling?-The Ancestral Shaman (The Magician)
The desire to modify reality with the strength of one's imagination. Initiation. Practical and dialectal skills. Great potential that has not yet been expressed

4. Outcome-The Upper World (The World)
Everything that is happening must happen. Full realization. Agreement. Renewal. Completeness. Desire for a new beginning.

I don't know what's happening here.
quetzalzotz: (Cthulu)
I had a dream last night that feels important, that I need to analyze.

Dream:

It's my first dream in a long time that feels like a narrative, and I woke up feeling urged to write about it.
I'm doing two forms of interpretation. One is using my dream dictionary, and one will build on that with a tarot reading. Since I'm not super comfortable analyzing dreams yet.

Symbols:

And onto the tarot reading, I'm using my Revelations tarot deck for this one. Spread from here.

I usually don't read reversals, even for this deck where the imagery actually represents something reversed and the card isn't just upside down, but I felt like I should. I find it interesting everything is reversed, because I do feel topsy turvy.
quetzalzotz: (Ma'at)
Tommen got really into Pinterest and bullet journaling. He wants to make one to help him manage his partners, make meal plans, and cleaning tasks, as well as schedule time to teach Hux and Kieran horseback riding, crafting with Myrci, all sorts of things.

Since I don't have much of a work/life balance, because I don't work, I never got into bullet journaling. But Fireez is doing a creative one, so I thought I'd give that a try, too. For creative projects, for chores, self care, and for my pagan stuff!

I'm hopefully going to get it set up within the next few days and have it ready for July 1
quetzalzotz: (Ixchel)
Today is the solstice! In my personal mythology, this is when Quetzalcoatl is at his strongest, and after today, he transfers power back to Cama Zotz.

I don't have anything really planned for today, but I did stop at Chapters, and I got a new oracle deck. It's the Messages from your Animal Spirit Guides deck. I asked Dukat if he'd let me do a animal totem pull for him.

Pueo (Hawaiian Owl)

Omg they're adorable.

"Your ancestral spirit guides are offering you guidance now, so pay close attention to signs and omens from them."
I don't know much about Cardassian spiritual beliefs, but I do know family is hugely important to them. And Dukat has lost pretty much all of his family.

quetzalzotz: (Cthulu)
I think I'm getting more and more attached to reptiles, to the point I'm going to add some into my animal section of my BoS.

I also got some new books. Four are about beings and faeries and elementals, one is a sequel to a great crystal book, and another is about the akashic records, which is something I've been interested in, but never really looked into before.

I'm taking today to read those. I  had an emotional day yesterday so I'm doing this for now.

Tomorrow is the solstice, and I'll write about that tomorrow, lol.
quetzalzotz: (Quetzalcoatl)
Everyone talks about Mercury in Retrograde, probably because it has a tendency to fuck shit up. But other planets go in and out of retrograde too.

I didn't know that.

I bought the 2017 Witches Almanac, to go with my more generic (and Christian) Farmers Almanac. And it had all the retrogrades listed.

This retrograde lasts until November 22, and this retrograde affects the water signs a lot, most notably Pisces, and affects water animals, chemicals, and spiritual and psychic phenomena. 

This could be a particularly interesting time for me, as I am extremely drawn to water, and am pretty in tune to the spiritual and psychic worlds. Or at least I'm trying.

I'm not doing anything other than groceries and maybe a brow wax tomorrow, so I have time to chill out and make a big push. I've done some piddly things, like my wishlists. But nothing major yet. If I get some good work done, I'm going to get some books on spirits and beings.

We're in a couple other retrogrades too. Jupiter is retrograde and it affects large animals, education, and religion. Saturn is effecting the elderly, employment and natural resources. Pluto is affecting ecoloy, espionage, birth and death rares, and strongly affects Scorpios.
quetzalzotz: (Crystals)
So I don't even know how I got to the farmer's almanac site, but there I was and I found out it had some really cool and useful stuff for my practice.

It's very obvious I'm not the target market for these guys, but I'm looking forward to going through it and printing out relevant stuff, like moon charts, astrological "best days" and the like. It's even customized for my area code.

I definitely think I'll get a copy every year. I'm a little disappointed I can't "subscribe" for the digital copies and get it each year without needing to remember, but the digital is cheaper, and no shipping. You can with the physical, I believe.

It's okay though, I can probably put reminders somewhere, lol.

I took a friend to an appointment today and we did some shopping after. First was at this amazing hippy store called Grasshopper. It's got a lot of neat things. I got a Karimba finger piano, and a tie-dyed headband. We also picked up some tie dyed onesies for the twins and Shara. They had cute baby mukluks too, but it's too hot, obviously, and knowing mine and Kylo's genes, the girls will have GIANT feet so who knows what size they'd need for winter.

We also went to the crystal store. And they had some stuff hidden behind an 18+ curtain. So, being 18+, we looked.

Crystal dicks. SO MANY DICKS.

I got a small smokey quartz one in honor of my grey trash lord. (There is a relevant story about why this is extra funny, and I'll get it up on my regular blog)

Reading

My future sister-in-law is coming over in half an hour or so to get a tarot reading done and have some snacks, chill, chat. My apartment is still mostly a nightmare, but I have tried. I feel insecure about it but oh well. I really did try.

I have a bunch of snacks, from some cheese and meats, fruit kebabs, and candy and chips and chocolate.

I'm not sure what kind of reading she's interested in, if it's something more general or more specfic. I'm not sure if we'll do any other readings but I have my runes and pendulums ready as well.

I'm sort of hoping she'll want a full "work up" as it were. Birth charts, animal totems, chakra reading, crystals. It would be nice to have someone actually in real life who is interested in this stuff.

We'll start with the reading for now and see how it goes. I need to put out the meat and cheese soon.
quetzalzotz: (Demeter)
So I cleaned my bathroom two days ahead of schedule, so I think I'm gonna reward myself with some of the being books I've looked at and put on my wishlist.

This is how adulthood works, right?

Beings

Jun. 5th, 2017 12:38 pm
quetzalzotz: (Crystals)
I think I want to do more work with beings. Faeries, angels, creatures, what-have-you. I did work with faeries briefly, but then that got sidetracked...

See, I'm terrified of grey-type aliens. Other aliens? Like, I don't know, Spock, or Darth Maul, or Gul Dukat, I am 1000000% into and extremely attracted to them. But greys, greys scare the bejesus out of me. Even those weird Vagina Mouth greys from Enterprise scare me.

When I was still talking to Hex, she claimed the greys were a type of faerie. And sure, I actually did like some of her arguments and evidence in that case (one of the few things I didn't mind in her cult) but it turned me away from being magic at all.

BECAUSE I WAS TERRIFIED

SO OF COURSE I DIDN'T DO ANY OF THAT

But I had an awesome experience with angels at the psychic fair, and a lot of books on beings caught my eye while making my Wishlist section of my BoS, so I'm thinking I'll get a couple books and do some reading.

quetzalzotz: (Default)
I'm at that point in my Book work where I'm panicking because I don't know how to keep everything consistent.  I want it to somehow look professional, and I don't really know why. This isn't a professional book. This is my book, and it's okay if it's not consistent. As long as I understand it and know what I'm talking about, and I do my best to make it neat, it's fine.

Ugh, make my weirdness about this stoppp.

I think I'm going to ease my way into it, somehow. I'll figure it out.

My Alphabet section was easy. I found a great chart I printed out with 17 different lettering systems, lining up with the alphabet we know. It includes Tengwar and Tolkien dwavish runes. If only it had Klingon!

Binder

Jun. 3rd, 2017 12:15 pm
quetzalzotz: (Skulls)
I've already got some stuff accomplished for my binder. I have 31 tabs, and 26 sections, so I have room for five more sections, should I need them.

My sections are as follows:
Part 1 (first five sections): "About"
1. About me/the practice
2. Soulbond stuff (their crystals, birth charts, etc)
3. Deities and spirits, may include mythology
4. Alphabets, fictional and magical
5. Wish list because I am someone who looooves the accessories of paganism lol

Part two (the next 9): "Practice"
6. Divination-runes, tarot, pendulum, etc
7. Dreams, including dream journaling
8. Healing and Shaman work
9. Holidays
10. Moon Magic-moon zodiac signs, moon meanings, eclipses, etc
11. Spells, curses, magical recipies
12. Rituals
13. Writings, personal or found
14. Yoga

Part three (the last 12): "Correspondences"
15. Animals
16. Astrology (sun signs)
17. Chakras
18. Colours
19. Crystals
20. Days and Times
21. Elements
22. Incense
23. Numerology
24. Oils
25. Planets
26. Plants

While I mentioned on my main blog that I'm sick, I'm going to do some work on this while I decide if I'll go see my family later (and subsequently wash my hair, do my makeup, etc). I'm hoping to get the alphabets section done. I plan on doing this while watching DS9 which is perfect and no one can tell me otherwise.

My only annoyance is that my clear sheet protectors, for things like my aura photo or my moon phase card, are longer than the tabs, so they hide tabs and I can't see them. There isn't much I can do, because I don't want to punch holes in these, and some of them I can't, but augh, it's so annoying.
