Logically Magical

The words seem to be banging around in my head, so I wanted to let them out. I want to take a moment to talk about How You View Divination. Or, more to the point, how I do, along with some other possibilities. I've made mention of this sort of thing in other posts, but … Continue reading Logically Magical

The Draw Before the Storm

Mostly when I speak to any of my divination tools I have a general ask of “What do you want me to know today?” It’s a great go-to – more so for the Tarot draws than a rune cast. Runes are like having a conversation with pictures. Which, as the runes are simple drawings themselves, … Continue reading The Draw Before the Storm

Meeting the Tools: Anglo-Saxon Runes

Full disclosure - much like with the Ogham, the Anglo-Saxon Runes are new to me. Unlike with the Ogham I was able to get a set that I wanted off the bat (Ogham rune sets are rare, and what I really want is a set where each piece is the corresponding kind of wood - … Continue reading Meeting the Tools: Anglo-Saxon Runes

Meeting the Tools: Shadowscapes Tarot

Then … Continue reading Meeting the Tools: The Wild Wood Tarot

Meeting the Tools: Tarot RWS

The Rider-Waite-Smith tarot deck is essentially the default setting for tarot card reading. (Maybe it's just me, but does it look like Matt Mercer modeled for The Magician to anyone else?) There's nothing wrong with default settings, just that most of us don't usually keep them. But they are, generally speaking, the best ways to … Continue reading Meeting the Tools: Tarot RWS

Meeting the Tools: Ogham

Before we begin on this challenge of daily posting, as I work towards both teaching and learning, I thought it best to introduce you - fair reader - to the tools I'm working with. Second on my list are the Ogham - Celtic in nature, my beginner-ness is going to show, because I'm still learning … Continue reading Meeting the Tools: Ogham
