I’m here with a fall recap/check-in. I did not get to write in the blog for September’s Walking With Mary Journey. But I did share about it over on my Instagram account. Halfway through, or maybe towards the beginning, I had a pretty bad cold that left me needing to rest a lot in order to recuperate. During the following weeks, reading about other’s journeys with Mary and Hettienne’s guidance over on her blog helped me continue the journey.
Now in October, I am not really doing a challenge on Instagram. I am just reading cards for myself when I need guidance. I am pulling my daily card using the Tarot of the Vampyres app and recording my daily card on my little monthly calendar. During my more involved readings, I am using the Rider-Waite Smith Centennial edition.
I am also reading through Benebell Wen’s Holistic Tarot (this was one of my Depth Year goals). And for the card of the week, I am using the Halloween Oracle. It is the only time of the year that I feel drawn to using that deck. I am glad I didn’t end up selling it. Today, I had fun looking at the cards with my girls.
This month, I have returned to working with my crystals. I started with amethyst to help me develop my intuition. Then I added labradorite for my magical workings. Most recently, I added a rough agate, that turned out to be a very special piece, for ancestral work.
I am also really enjoying the Priestess Podcast by Julie Parker. I am reading Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I am watching Inuyasha, a childhood favorite of mine, and I am geeking out over all the magical references the episodes have!
Last year, I found out about a calendar to work with the moon phases called The Moon is My Calendar by April Miller but was not able to get it. I recently preordered the 2020 edition as a birthday gift and I am so excited for it! I can’t wait to deepen my connection with the moon.
I also have a special mala that I use for connecting with the moon. I purchased it from the lovely @bruja_hozanek on Instagram.
It is made of black tourmaline, hematite, tourmalated (tourmalinated?) quartz, and clear quartz. I just love it so much!
