It's been a while since I've purchased a new tarot deck, but I found the Paulina Tarot the other day while gallivanting online and it spoke to be right away (it said, "buy me"... lol)
With all the back-to-school craziness that's been going on here I haven't had a (quiet) chance to sit down and get to know my new deck yet, but today I found myself (in the middle of screaming kids and barking dogs) sitting down with my deck and doing a reading for myself. I did a very small, three card, spread (I didn't really have time, or room for any more) that actually turned into a five card spread with a bit of confirmation from my favorite pendulum (I honestly couldn't believe how clear the answers were coming through from the deck itself, but they were spot on!)
The last card I pulled was the Magician.. She arrived in all her Enchanted Glory to remind me of who and what I am - a Knowledgeable Witch with Friends in the Spirit Realm who are here to help me any time I so ask.
It's easy to forget that, and so today I've taken to placing reminders around myself - to finding a bit of quiet to ground and center myself, to connect once again with my Patron Goddess who shines the Light of Beauty and Grace upon me anytime I wish. Today is a day filled with Spirit for me and with this heat I swear I feel as if I'm in Hades... which is exactly where I want to be! Chatting with the Queen of the Underworld, Persephone, and Her Hand-maiden, Hecate... listening to the words of Ancient Wisdom.
Samhain is coming and it's time for my art to take a turn into the darkness of the macabre world. I have several projects I'm working on that are a bit darker in nature, but honestly all my Witch-crafts tend to come out on the Lighter Side.. Francesca once told me I was very much a Girly Fae and I guess that just comes out with everything I do - be it fashion, art or magic!
Until next time...
