Well, you could always volunteer for him…  *grins*  He’s one of my fave Tarot cards, to be honest.

A winner has been found!  Feel free to keep guessing though, just for the fun of it!

Riddles of the Arcana: Riddle #5

Ware the skies, for doom is nigh,
I am wrathful to the blind.
Where the lies make pride rise high,
Bolts of judgement are assigned.

WHO AM I?

Weird confession time:

I have a really hard time taking supernatural horror movies seriously.  I mean, I get the idea of avoiding the crazy psycho killers… but…

… demons and ghosts and things?  I think I’ve studied too much magic to be afraid of them anymore.  I’m watching a tv show wherein a girl is possessed by a demon, and she starts outing all the other characters’ “hidden terrible secrets.”  And my bf and I look at each other and laugh, cuz a) if she said anything about us, we’d be like “… and?”  And b) we’d probably have charmed the demon into a circle or something and turned it into a houseplant by the end of the first hour.

*sighs*

Hold up. What do you mean by shapeshifted???? O_O

Projecting your spirit from your body into a fetch-form.  In my case, a cat.

*chuckling*  Not “ZOMG TURN MY BODY INTO AMINAL I AM TEH SUPERHEROEZ”

Magickal Book Meme!

Name 10 books which have stuck with you- the magical version!

  1. Viridarium Umbris by Daniel Schulke- without this book, I would be completely useless at wortcunning.
  2. The Witches’ Qabala by Ellen Cannon Reed- without this book, I would know dick about the Qabala.  It got me started!
  3. Northern Mysteries and Magick by Freya Aswynn- because of this book, I spent an otherwise boring two weeks shapeshifted and wandering “out and about” the house as a black cat, making my mother think she was crazy!
  4. Rowan Tree and Red Thread by Thomas Davidson- useful not only because of its Scottish (and thus relevant to my practice) lore, but also because it was a gift from a very good friend.
  5. To Stir a Magick Cauldron by Silver Ravenwolf- I became ridiculously proficient at casting circle and boundary wards after reading this book, and also at working with spirits.  Say what you will (as if I can ever stop anyone) about Silver, that book was VERY handy to have as a baby witch of 14 years.
  6. A Treasure of Witchcraft by Harry Wedeck- I read this when I was 10 years old and cast my first weather spell with it!
  7. The Witch’s Familiar by Raven Grimassi- got me thinking about familiars as less an “animal” thing and more of a traditional “spirit-familiar” thing, which of course blossomed into a huge tradition.
  8. Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson- the absolute FUNNIEST book to read out loud with a coven in funny accents, I kid you not.
  9. The Azoetia by Andrew Chumbley- very hard to just sit and read, my coven worked through this book over the course of two years, and it really left an impact on my Craft.
  10. Spellcraft by Robin Skelton- his books are really good in general, and they lay out the practice of spellcasting in a very helpful and no-nonsense manner.  This will always be a book I associate with my time at Avalon’s Gate.

There are a LOT of other ones, but I was trying for books that have specific memories for me.  :)

Wanna play too?  Feel free!
