How To Interpret the Tarot Cards

Before doing a reading, make sure you’ve brushed up on the Basics of Tarot and Preparing for a Reading.

Now that you’ve laid down your Tarot cards, in the spread of your choice, this is where the real fun begins. If someone has come to you as a Querent, it’s because they want to know what’s going on — what sorts of things will present obstacles to them, what positive outcomes they can expect, that sort of thing. But they also want it to be interesting. After all, anyone can flip open a book and read that the Ten of Cups means contentment and happiness. What they really want to know is how does it apply to them?

We come before you to ask for your help
Not for ourselves but for our brothers & sisters
Who now face disaster and devastation in the
Wake of Hurricane Florence.

You acknowledge their needs for a great Power

most dire hour of need.

to face and conquer the challenges
before them and to come.

Pagan Pride

Festivals are a large part of the Pagan year.  There isn’t a time of year that you can’t find some Pagan event going on somewhere in the country.  Some parts of the country are known for their large festivals, which are attended by hundreds of people within the diverse Pagan and magical community of North America.  There are thriving Pagan communities within the heartland of America living in places that on the surface are seen as largely Christian and conservative.  These are the places where Paganism thrives in its wild state.  Many practitioners in these areas are solitary practitioners for lack of a large enough community that gathers at regular times since many of us are spread across a wide area.  Pagan Pride Festivals in these areas are often the only time of the year that the Pagan community comes together, unless you want to travel to one of the larger festivals.  For some people who live in small towns far off the beaten path this is a special time of coming together.  If there is a place to gather and an event to attend the Pagan community seems to materialize from the many individual practitioners who come together for such occasions.

Amazonite

Amazonite also known as Amazonstone is a green tectosilicate mineral made from microcline.[2][3] It has the chemical formulaK(AlSi3O8).[1][4]

Its name is taken from that of the Amazon River, from which certain green stones were formerly obtained, but it is doubtful whether green feldspar occurs in the Amazon area.[5]

Because of its bright green color when polished, amazonite is sometimes cut and used as a cheap gemstone, although it is easily fractured, and loses its gloss due to its softness.

The Three Aettirs of the Elder Futhark Runes

Witches Of The Craft®

anglosaxonWhile Cooper refers to the “Elder Futhark”, he uses the names and meanings of the runes of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc. Traditionally only the first three rune rows (aettir) of the Anglo-Saxon Futhorc are used for divination, although the “extra” runes might be used for magick. Cooper discusses only the these first three rows.

The Aettir In Magick
By D. Jason Cooper

© 1994, D. Jason Cooper, Esoteric Rune Magic, pp. 48-63

There are three aettir (aett is singular, aettir is plural) of the Elder Futhark. This fact has often been mentioned In both occult and academic books on the runes, but no one has bothered to wonder what this division means.

The Enochian alphabet has no similar division; its only internal structure is its alphabetic order and numerology. The Hebrew alphabet has both these divisions and the division between single, double, and mother letters..

Perhaps this is why when…
