Like it says on the tin, I am opening tip-based tarot readings! They aren’t free, but there will not be a set price (at least not for the time being) meaning you can simply pay what you wish, be it $1 or $10.
I won’t be doing specialised readings, such as Past Life Readings, because they take too much time and energy to do, but any general readings, basic questions and spreads I will happily do.
Please DM me for details or email me @ “firstname.lastname@example.org”.
I will not be answering any free readings in my inbox, so please don’t send me asks with your questions anonymously.
Search the tag #reviews #tarot reviews or #review on my blog to see past feedback concerning my services!
The kotilunak are characters of the Basque traditional Mardi Gras, very similar to joaldunak.
They’re typical of Ustaritz, and this week they have started waking the earth up after winter by making the cowbells on their back sound. This also cast the bad spirits from the town, and announce Mardi Gras and spring are coming.
The Vitoria-Gasteiz council has begun marking the semi-pedestrian streets with Basque national flower eguzkilore:
I decided to start making some oracle cards based off of the Greek gods to use during my readings, and here are the first three: Zeus, Hera and Apollo! ✨
Hello! Hi witchblr! Baby Witch here!
I has a question for those working with deities and such.
How… do…? I’ve never SERIOUSLY done any witchy things but I want to do so and would like to work with a deity (i keep wanting to spell it like ‘diety'😫).
Should I not do that right away?… Should I start somewhere else and THEN try to work with a deity? IDK
I will say that I’d have to be kinda covert about this bc I’m not in an accepting environment for witchcraft/witchy things.
Also if you could provide some basic tips for a baby undercover witch that’d be great! I’d love to learn as much as I could even if I don’t think I’d vibe with it.
So idk who it is yet, but I’ve been getting a lot of BIG dad energy from a deity lately? Things like messages in dreams, protective feelings etc…
-I offer him moments where I go beyond the chains that binds me
-I offer him compassion when I find those chains to be too heavy to hold
-I offer him kindness in every stray dog I meet when I offer them safety and a meal before finding them a home
-I offer him my rage at the injustices I find in the world, my fight against them
-I offer him the taste of the first piece of meat, it may not satisfy his hunger but I hope it still feeds him
-I offer him my pain when I find myself crawling through life’s most excruciating moments, hoping for solace in a kindred soul
-I offer him my trust, my hand in his mouth that he will not bite it for he is not a monster but a keeper of his oath
-I offer him my honesty, he will know lies as soon as I tell them, so why hide myself from his eternal hunger
-I offer him my companionship, the eyes of an outsider looking in
-I offer him my emptiness, my head being silent as he speaks in his growls as they fill me with his wisdom
-I offer him my fullness, the breadth of my knowledge and will for him to test in ways he sees fit, so long as it is a lesson to learn
-I offer him my heart, in trust and faith beyond compassion. I accept his rage and pain, his wisdom and knowing, his emptiness and fullness, all as him. I accept not only the eye of the storm, but the storm he is in its entirety. He is no simple mindless monster.
Shamanism isnt some ascended spiritual thing, you dont suddenly become a shaman when you ‘unlock your third eye’ or 'ascend to 5D’ or whatever else. It’s not some woke spiritual thing to call yourself a shaman. I am so sick of people (usually white people, even more often americans) making shamanism like this ultimate goal of being spiritual and whatever. I’m sick of it being viewed as this ancient mystical knowledge that ’you too can unlock!’ and sick of seeing posts on tumblr that are like ’awake your inner shaman!’ 'shamans are shamans because they are one with the earth, be like a shaman and become one with mother nature’ 'shamans are these higher beings because of thing-thats-not-connected-to-shamanism-whatsoever’ It’s put on a pedestal of the ultimate spiritual goal and for a lack of a better word, being fetishized in the occult.
Yes shamanism is beautiful and mystical and its powerful but its not powerful because its shamanism. It’s just different. It’s just another form of belief. You know what happens when you have a powerful journey of spiritual awakenings? You become spiritually woke. You know what doesn’t happen? You don’t suddenly become a shaman. You know what you do tho? You appropriate closed practices
proving that you’re not actually spiritually woke. Why is it so difficult for some people to just be happy about their personal journey without using labels that absolutely don’t belong to them?

Periodically people tell me they’d love to learn magic, but they don’t know where to start so last month I wrote up a little introduction to the Elements of magic as many neopagans (and occultists) in the “Western World” view them. They…
I would never speak to my mom again if she did this to me.
