Our bathroom mirror just fell off the wall, and that thing is huge. My sister was in there, and thankfully it didn’t shatter, but fell against a clock on the wall and caught itself.
Weirdly enough, I heard a bang when that happened, and a moment later, my bedroom door blew open on its own. The wind’ll do that, but it was still odd. For a minute I was sure Val was outside of it, cracking it to talk to me, and when she wasn’t I kind of yelled, which is how “the mirror fell down” was revealed in the first place.
A little odd.
Day 5. A favourite Goddess.
Isis - Egyptian Goddess “Mother of the Gods”
A friend of my friend, who is 16, is in the hospital in critical condition. He was at the Dark Knight Rises premier, along with many kids his age. It’s a popular theatre in our area, because it doesn’t rack up prices for midnight showings. I’d like to ask for your thoughts and prayers in his favor, and for all the other people, young and old, who fell victim to this horrible and unforeseeable attack. Thank you.
I have a character that fits this description, and I wonder if maybe she wasn’t inspired by a myth I’ve since forgotten, and if that’s the case I’d like to know. Thanks!
I have a friend who has someone who she works with (or maybe”works with her” is the better term, she’ll have to correct me if I’m wrong,) and who seems to act as a protective influence. Who he could be, though, is something we can’t seem to figure out.
So, just out of curiosity, then, are any of you familiar with a deity, spirit, or anything which unites some or all of the following traits:
-Association with water
-Association with death
-Association with shape-shifting
- Association with dragons
Maybe he’s unique to her, but if any of you do know of anything that sounds like this, or think you know of somewhere we might look when researching, we’d both love to hear it. Thanks!!!!
Question for the masses:
Anyone know where the lunar association with Isis came into play historically? Is that a neo pagan/wiccan thing, or was that the Greeks and Romans? Because, according to everything I have ever read, she was a solar deity in Kemet.
I love to go to thrift stores and antique dealers, and I especially love when I can get the means to make something useful and meaningful while I am there. I purchased a wall thermometer for $2.00 just for the lenses off of it.
Today, I am going to show how to make a simple, easy divination tool from a curved lens. This tool is called a keek stane in Scotland, but I usually just call it a scrying disk.
Not many tools are needed. All we require is…
A curved lense…
…and a bottle of black nail polish. I got a funny look from the cashier when this was the only item I purchased. It was VERY amusing.
Now, we are simply going to paint one side of the lens with the nail polish. You want to paint the convex side (the side that is rounded outward). Take your time, it won’t come out right if you rush.
Just starting out.
As you can see here, painting the one side gives an inky dark pool of blackness on the other side. This is what we will be doing our scrying from.
Now, you got it all painted and you think you are done? Wrong, brothers and sisters!
As you can see here when we hold it up to the light, one layer will just not do. Go over it again, applying a little extra polish where you see thin spots.
A second layer fills in the gaps so we have that perfect black pool to scry on.
You scry from this disk just the same as you would from a crystal, black mirror or pool of water. I would give an in-depth account of the scrying process, but I am humble enough to admit that scrying is not a forte of mine and that explanation is left to more capable hands than mine. So do your research and practice practice practice!
This tool should be stored in a lined box or soft cloth bag to protect the paint.
Merry Meet to those who come.
Blessed Be to those who go.
Ahh, so that’s what these are for. Plus, a lovely DIY guide!
Question for anyone familiar with Celtic knots: can you tell me what this is? It looks almost like a trinity knot, but it has that extra loop on it. Is that just an aesthetic thing or is it actually a different knot?
Signal boost: do any of you know if there is a significance to this aside from aesthetics?
