What’s in the August Newsletter?

The August newsletter video:

As I was taping this episode the weather was becoming *Darker and Darker and Darker* and soon it began to rain, so during various sections of this video you may hear the rhythmic plunk, plunk plunk of water leaking around the sky-lights on my porch roof, you may hear the steady sound of rain, and occasionally the wind will rise. It’s all good. There’s a nice Q&A section at the beginning where I explain a little bit about my online coven experience and why I won’t do it again; you’ll also hear some court case questions, as well as other questions and answers dealing with Black Cat Oil and the use of Rosemary & Amythyst in the bedroom. The second portion of this video deals with my personal experience with Independent Publishing. I really believe that this is a new wave for the future. There’s also informal chatting about writing, deciding to write a book, and snippets of all kinds of ideas based around this topic. Hope you enjoy our visit though this video and the awesome summer weather!!

Gotta’ Love Those Landing Pages! ~ A Study in Self-Promotion

Do you have an online business? Are you trying to promote yourself online? This is such a tricky thing to do these days, so much has changed since the early internet days.  Being a witchy pagan person trying to promote The Witch’s Corner, my tarot readings, and later on my books, I use to join every Ning network connected with paganism and tarot.  Those were back in the days when Ning networks could be set up for free, and there was a plethora of sites to join with active people in those sites.  All that has changed.  So many of the pagan/tarot networks that are available out there now are really touchy about self-promotion, and they usually have all kinds of rules to read through before you join.  In all honesty, what do they think a lot of pagans are joining those sites for, if not for a platform to promote themselves, their website, their services, and their merchandise?  And unfortunately, I’ve recently ran into a number of social sites for pagans that were dead in the water with no activity at all.

My plan for shameless internet promotion, without spending any money mind you, is to set up as many pages about me, my websites, my books, and my tarot readings as I can through hosting companies that allow limited sized sites for FREE.  (If you really like a web-host and would like to expand your site, you can always upgrade later).   The following are links to “Landing Pages” that I’ve set up with the following companies, totally free:

 

Bravenet

Wix

Weebly

https://thewitchscorner.weebly.com/

Website Builder

https://the-witchs-corner.my-free.website/

About Me

https://about.me/amythystraine

 

I’m sure there must be more companies out there, but these are some that I’ve found and used to establish Landing Pages.  If anyone reading this knows of other sites, please let us know and leave a link in the comments below.

Blessings,
Amythyst

Tarot Insights ~ All 12 Signs ~ July 2018

WARNING: The extremely blunt assessment of some of the zodiac signs may be offensive to some people. These readings are channeled for the energy of a Zodiac Sign, Not An Individual. No disrespect is meant, I just communicated honestly what was coming through the cards for me. Also, this is an “F-Bomb” warning.

TIME STAMPS:
Pisces/4:43
Aquarius/7:27
Taurus/9:51
Virgo/11:26
Sagittarius/13:03
Libra/14:21
Cancer/15:53
Capricorn/17.00
Gemini/18:06
Scorpio/19:28
Aries/21:14
Leo/22:47

The first reading, for Pisces, is relatively tame. After that the energy becomes very pointed, outspoken, and often brutally honest. These readings are channeled for Sun Signs, Moon Signs, & Rising Signs.

If you enjoy these FREE readings, and you would like to support this reader so that she can continue to produce these videos, it might be nice if you would occasionally PURCHASE a PERSONAL reading from her tarot website: The Tarot Parlour

Spiritual Feminism ~ What’s it all about?

What’s it all about?… It’s about embracing the feminine divine.  It’s about matriarchal divinity and the mysteries revealed.  It’s about connecting with the feminine aspect of Spirit.  It’s about connecting with 45 goddesses from around the world!  — Cultural Appropriation… Bring it on!  I’m an American; I’m a blend of numerous cultures and peoples with every generational step back I take… from parents, to grandparents, to great-grandparents, great-great grandparents, and beyond.  It’s all about learning how to incorporate Spirit into our lives; it’s about learning to love ourselves and feed our egos with healthy affirmations.  It’s about self-empowerment; it’s about learning to empower and support each other!

Listen to the following radio interview for an in-depth discussion on these topics and more!

You’ll find all of this and more in my book,

Florida Water Recipe

Does anyone need a recipe to make their own Florida Water?  Yes?… Well, here it is:

Two cups of vodka or any alcohol of your preference
Two tablespoon of orange flower water
6 drops of essential oil of bergamot
6 drops of essential oil of rosemary
6 drops of essential oil of lavender
6 drops of essential oil of rose attar
3 drops of essential oil of sage
2 drops of essential oil of neroli

Mix all of these ingredients together and let it sit for a couple days.  Note that you can adjust any of the essential oils, strength-wise, to attain a scent that is to your liking.

If there’s anyone reading this who doesn’t know what Florida Water is used for, it’s mainly for cleansing and protection, but there are other uses I’m going to list below.  There is a company who produces a marketable brand of Florida Water, and you can find them online easy. (So I’m going to be lazy and not go searching for it right now.)

Here’s a list of uses for you, but that’s not saying that some of you might not think of a few new ways to use Florida Water:

1. Cleanse your house by adding salt and Florida Water to a bucket of water and mop the floors.
2. Cleanse your magical items and crystals with a cloth and Florida Water.
3. Cleanse your altar and your magical space before casting a circle.
4. Provide it as a thank you gift to the deities or energies you’re working with.
5. Use it in your bath by adding a few drops in the water to cleanse your aura and rejuvenate the senses.
6. Put Florida Water in your palms and clap them to raise vibrations and to give you a quick energy boost.
7. It can be used in your rooms for a Happy Home and to combat melancholy and depression.
8. Florida Water can replace Holy water in magical practices and rituals.
9. Add Florida Water and Van Van oil together in order to attract better clientele.
10. Use it to dress candles for magical spells and rituals for Protection, Communication with Spirits, Cleansing and Breaking Hexes, and to remove malevolent magic.
11. Add a few drops to a bottle of ink and use it to empower your written petitions.

"Earthing" is something we all need to do more often to "ground" us all !!! <<<Agreed. Yet another reason why I rarely wear shoes. Used to get in trouble quite a bit for frequently taking them off(especially at work). XD
