    Tarot Exhaustion is a very real thing. It can be from doing too many readings at once or having a reading being too intense. It can be you not wanting to pick up any of your tarot decks for an extended period of time. Thatโ€™s okay. Take whatever break you need!

    Free Tarot Readings

    As it could be seen on my Tumblr, recently I bought myself a new tarot deck - The Wildwood Tarot.

    I really want to upgrade my divination skills, especially because I have not actively done divination for a while. Also, I want to get closer to my deck and form a strong connection with it.

    So, first 15 people who send me their question in the question box or DM, will get their reading for free.

    I want to note that since this is actually an exercise, I could make some mistakes, but I promise I will try to be accurate as possible and give my best.

    Please, be sure to form your question well. Thank you for your help in advance!

    Samhain is my FAVORITE pagan holiday! Well, it might be tied with Beltane (for reasons) ๐Ÿ‘€

    Which is yours? Comment below!

    I bring you a spooky, yet mindful Samhain offering. This made to order crystal bracelet displays striking contrast due to the crystal accents of FIREY, fasceted Carnelian (representing hope in what is to come, desire, and passionate drive to live in alignment with values), clear Quartz (to heighten our awareness of "the other"), and fragrant, ebony Sandalwood (to remind us of the gifts in the mundane and the spiritual all around us, connect us with the lessons our ancestors provide, and instill us with a sense of honor when we bury those parts of us better left behind).

    This is a OOAK crystal bracelet. Only one lucky witch will wear this magickal offering reminiscent of transition and change. It will available at EXACTLY 8:00 pm ET (shop link in bio)

    It is MADE TO ORDER; Please measure your wrist and provide that measurement in inches in your check out notes.

    Andraste: Goddess of Lions

    I wanted to make a post in response to this. It reads, "I love the DA series, but as Celtic Pagan, I cringe at how the chantry is. To see the Goddess Andraste of was, so independent, be put in the role under a Maker unnerves me. In the game I can never support the chantry because of this. But Morrigan is the Celtic goddess of battle and death, and they got her description down to the crow feathers. I like to see these Goddess', but I wish they gave them more respect."

    For background: I've been playing the DA series since it came out, which was over a decade and about half my life ago. But more recently I've started connecting to the Iceni goddess and Dragon Age goddess Andraste as a single figure. It was something I had considered for two years before pursuing it.

    While I absolutely understand the poster's feelings about the Chantry, I think there's so much more to Andraste outside of the Chantry's canon. But right now I just want to touch on one specific theory.

    To start, Iceni Andraste was the goddess of Boudica and the latter was nicknamed the "Treacherous Lioness" by Gildas for the ways in which she fought against the Romans.

    Dragon Age Andraste was the daughter of an Alamarri chief and his Ciriane wife, enslaved under Tevinter Imperium and fought for their freedom. The the Ciriane were proto-Orlesian, which is now home of the Chantry and ruled by Empress Celene. Better known as "The Lioness," which I think goes to show the forethought of the creators, which I am always surprised and pleased by.

    Characters and fans have no clue if the Maker actually exists, who or what he might be, but there's plenty of theories about it. One theory, that is compatible with a large number of other theories regarding Andraste and the Maker, comes from Empress Celene. She believes that Andraste's motives were far more political, in wanting to free and protect her people, than religious. Followers of Chantry from officials to commoners also operate from that same perspective. Regardless of the Maker, the story of Andraste unites kingdoms and inspires the unfortunate.

    I think that all of this is true to the spirit of Boudica's Andraste as a highly political goddess of battle and freedom.

    There's lots more theories that I can talk about in the future and lots more coincidences between DA and Celtic lore that I would love to get into, but I'll end it here. I just think that the developers of DA did a phenomenal job at bringing these small details from history into the game.

    Samhain magicย ๐Ÿ‚

    Samhain rings in the dark half of the year. While it marks the transition from summer to winter, Samhain itself is "without time", a liminal space not only in between the realms of living and dead but also in between the seasons. Like all Celtic feasts, Samhain begins at nightfall taking place from the evening of October 31 to nightfall on November 1. Although, this most important Celtic festival used to last three days and three nights, and failure to take part in the celebrations was believed to result in divine punishment (sickness or even death).

    During the Samhain celebrations, hearth fires were left to burn out while the last of the harvest was brought in. Druids would light huge sacred bonfires from the remnants of which the fires in the homes were re-lit to ensure protection and warmth during the winter months. Another tradition was to sacrifice animals and toss their bones in to the flames of the sacred fires leading also to them being called bonfire ("bone fire"). Offerings for the fae were left outside the village, fortunes were told, debts were repaid, business matters settled and trials held.

    In the Middle Ages, the tradition of sacred bonfires changed. Now it was mostly families lighting smaller bonfires, so called Samghnagans . It was also during this time that the tradition of carving jack-o'-lanterns emerged, first using turnips and later pumpkins.

    Some ideas to celebrate

    ๐Ÿ”ฎ On Samhain night the veil between the worlds is thin. Therefore it is the perfect time for spirit work and divination. Some say, that if you walk three times around the graves of a grave yard (sunwise) at midnight you might be able to get a glimpse of the future. If you'd rather not walk around a grave yard on Samhain night, you can use any other form of divination such as pendulums, tarot and scrying.

    ๐Ÿ‘ป One form of spirit work popular on Samhain are dumb suppers. During this medieval tradition, you set up an extra plate on your dinner table for (a) dead loved one(s) or ancestor(s) to invite them to join you that night. The dinner is held in silence and gives the participants to interact with the deceased guests. To guide the spirits through the night you can leave a candle burning in front of the window. (Make sure nothing can catch fire.) Burn a black candle or leave a jack-o'-lantern in front of your house to ward of negative energies and malevolent spirits.

    ๐ŸŽƒ One of my Samhain traditions is to make pumpkin soup, so here is my recipe... I used to make pumpkin soup with Hokkaido pumpkin, potatoes and cream which tastes great, but recently I got some kabocha squash and improvised with an amazing result.

    For approximately four people you will need a small kabocha squash, two to four potatoes and one or two apples, a piece of ginger, as well as water, vegetable broth, some oil (olive oil or alternatively sunflower or rapeseed), salt, nutmeg and mugwort.

    Begin by peeling and chopping your ginger into tiny pieces. Peel the squash, potatoes and apple(s) (you can eat the rind/peel of all of them but the colour of the soup will be nicer if you peel them) and cut them into pieces.

    Heat some oil in a pot and briefly fry the ginger, then add the squash, apple and potato. Pour enough water into the pot to cover them and add one cube of vegetable broth per 500ml of water. After a while add a few leaves of mugwort. You can also add them in the end, however, if you add them now they will be better integrated into the soup and you won't have fairly large bits of it floating in your soup.

    Once the squash and potato have become soft, take the pot off the heat and blend your soup until it has become a smooth, thick liquid.

    Put the pot back on the hob and let the soup boil up again seasoning it with salt and nutmeg. Serve with a sprinkle of pumpkin seed oil and/or pumpkin seeds.

    I find that this soup, like most others, tastes best prepared in advance and then re-heated. Here, nutmeg and mugwort serve two purposes: their taste and their properties which I list below along with the (Samhain-relevant) properties and magical uses of the other ingredients.

    apple: (love) divination, the Otherworld

    pumpkin/ squash: granting wishes, protection

    ginger: increases magical powers, break hexes

    potato: protection, connection to the Earth

    mugwort: protection, divination (psychic vision and prophetic dreams)

    nutmeg: luck in legal matters and for travelling, clairvoyance, encouraging visions

    salt: protection, purification

    ๐Ÿ”ฅ As Samhain marks the end of summer and the beginning of the cold and dark time of the year, it presents an opportunity to be thankful for what summer and the harvest have brought you and let go of what no longer serves you. You can write a list of what you are grateful for, or spend times with your loved ones. Finish any long-overdue projects, resolve any unresolved issues, write down what you want to banish and burn the paper. (Again, make sure nothing else can catch fire.)

    ๐Ÿ“– The dark half of the year is not only a time of reflection and recovery but also one of stories. So, how could it start better than with a good story in front of a fire - be it a bonfire or a simple candle? The Second Battle of Mag Tuired and The Adventures of Nera are two Celtic tales ideal for Samhain. Personally, I love to dig out my collection of Edgar Allan Poe's stories and poems to read for instance The Tell-Tale Heart, Ligeia and The Raven.

    Blessed Samhain!ย ๐Ÿ‚ย

    Valentinus Taken Prisoner by Otto van Veen 1613.

    In 1613, the Dutch parliament (States General) commissioned Otto van Veen to paint twelve paintings depicting the revolt of the Batavians against the Romans in AD 69 and 70. These were displayed in Binnenhof, the central government building in The Hague. In the early years of the Dutch Republic, many compared their own revolt against Spain to the Batavian uprising.

    "These circumstances moved Cerialis to prompter action: he despatched some officers to the Mediomatrici to direct the legions against the enemy by a more direct route, while he united the troops at Mainz with all the forces that he had brought with him; after a three days' march he came to Rigodulum, which Valentinus had occupied with a large force of Treviri. The town was naturally protected by hills or by the Moselle; in addition Valentinus had constructed ditches and stone ramparts. But these fortifications did not deter the Roman general from ordering his infantry to assault or from sending his cavalry up the hill, since he despised his foe, believing that his own men would have more advantage from their courage than the enemy's hastily collected forces could gain from their position. The Roman troops were delayed a little in their ascent while they were exposed to the enemy's missiles: when they came to close quarters, the Treviri were hurled down headlong like a falling building. Moreover, some of the cavalry rode round along the lower hills and captured the noblest of the Belgians, among them their leader Valentinus." -Tacitus, The Histories: Book 4, Chapter 71
