  1. Hi all! So I had a spooky encounter today with my Daemon Tarot deck. I've been using it as an oracle just because the creator did post on a website that it's more of an oracle and not a tarot deck. The artwork on the deck is beautiful. It's exactly my style, so I felt connected with it more than other decks. So I'm shuffling them very thoroughly and I draw three cards to represent three things for my question: what I'm ignoring, what I need, and what action should be taken. After I pulled my cards I just felt like something was weird, so i decided to just start over. This is mainly because I haven't used tarot cards in awhile and I just didn't feel like I knew oracle cards too well. So I reset myself, shuffled very thoroughly (I'm very picky about my shuffling... it has to be shuffled until I feel like it's "right"), and I drew three cards. The same three cards popped up in the same spots. Has anyone experienced something like this? I mean I really would've have expected all three of the same cards to pop up in the same spot. This must really be important! And I feel a little spooked about this because this is a new kind of deck to me. I'm used to all of the "magical" depictions.
  2. Hi all, I have recently been diagnosed with sensory processing disorder. i experience sensory overload very quickly. I work in Chicago and it's miserable. My senses are VERY heightened, so it's not just being more sensitive to these things, and it makes me agitated. When our dog barks, for example, I have to cover my ears. I have to cover my ears in the city when I forget my headphones, but to be honest, I can hear things over my headphones. Music doesn't bother me, but everything else does. Strange, right? Well anyway, does anyone have any idea of how to approach trance work with these issues? I have been avoiding doing so because of the agitation and instant irritability with sensory processing issues. I was thinking about ordering a trance aid tincture from a store online, but I'm not sure if it would make it worse or calm me down so I can focus on trance work. Thanks!
  3. I'm actually listening to the introductory audio on the Naturespace website: https://www.naturespace.com/ I'm loving the crow caws and how spooky everything sounds!! Also the Naturespace piece "Shaman vs Goddess" is amazing!
  4. Thank you for the list!! I'm especially loving Spirit Apothecary because they call belladonna! I've been meaning to make another flying ointment. Here are two great websites: Bouncing Bear Botanicals, Otherworld Apothecary. Both sell European mandrake root, belladonna, and others. I do prefer Bouncing Bear Botanicals, however, as it's cheaper.
  5. I am IN LOVE with the movie and that song!! My favorite part is of the song is "the cold never bothered me anyway" because I actually really love cold weather (I know, I'm a weird one). As of right now, I'm listening to trance music. I've been in the mood for it lately, which is a bit strange considering I'm a bigger fan of goth music.
  6. Thanks for the info! Interesting techniques. I am, however, arachnophobic, so I would probably start crying hysterically if I laid eyes on the spider(s)!
  7. I'm into goth music (darkwave, gothic metal, gothic rock, etc.) and I love Nox Arcana for that dark and dreary music style. :)
  8. I LOVE the American Folkloric Witchcraft blog!!
  9. Gypsy Sorcery and Fortune Telling, by Charles Godfrey Leland.
  10. Hello, Stacey! :) The Thoth tarot deck is my all-time favorite!! I connect with the artwork that has been done as it is my favorite kind of artwork.
  11. Great post! Very straightforward. I tend to always go with my initial feelings of what the symbols mean as well. Sometimes I have a feeling to just trust what I believe, trust what the symbol meanings are, or consider both and interpret them both with each other. I also go into a semi trance-induced state (as well as incorporating other practices) when doing any sort of divination so I can connect with the spirits/make sure I'm getting an accurate reading that is influenced by the spirits.
