Green Witchcraft Grimoire ~ What does this bring to mind for you?

This quote from Green Witchcraft Grimoire says a lot about green witchcraft and the green witch: “Not all of us face daunting danger every day, but sometimes we all face something that scares us. It’s okay to be scared but it’s not okay to flee in the face of something we need to confront. When something is coming up in life and you’re going to need a little extra courage to stand up to it, you can cast this spell…” ~ What does this bring to mind for you?

Astrological & Celestial Connections ~ Green Witchcraft Grimoire

One of the most important aspects of green witchcraft is its esoteric connection with astrology. Because of the strong association to the natural earth and its energies, the green witch’s connection to celestial energies is often overlooked. That’s why I included this helpful information in chapter five (Celestial Spells) of my new book Green Witchcraft Grimoire.

There are tons more tips and tricks like this all throughout Green Witchcraft Grimoire, so if you found this helpful, take a moment to go pre-order your copy on Amazon: https://amzn.to/2X7DGbk

Wheel of Fortune

The following is an excerpt from my book, The Ultimate Tarot Guide for Your Personal Tarot Journey.  You can purchase your copy at Amazon.

Wheel of Fortune 
Keywords: completion; a game plan; success; Lady Luck; the gambler; taking chances; all your eggs in one basket; winning the lottery

Archetypes: The Gambler (Kenny Rodgers); Robin Hood; race car drivers; politicians; business women

Correspondences:

Number/1

Planet/Jupiter

Element/Earth

Astrological Sun Sign/Aquarius

In a Nutshell: Luck

Upright Interpretation:

There is the immense relief of getting something accomplished, of meeting a deadline, of coming to the end of a monumental task, the satisfaction of having completed a job-well-done. This is a happy cat-chasing-it’s-tale card, but with a game plan, a touche to the world. If no one else understands where you’re coming from, or how you’re going to do what it is you’re planning to do, know that you– and the universe– will have it all straight.

Reversed Interpretation: The cat’s still chasing it’s tale, but this time it’s going in mindless circles with no game plan and not a clue as how to stop the merry-go-round to get off. You’re a long way from done, says the reversed Wheel of Fortune. Everything is left open, up in the air, with nary a solution or set date of completion in sight. Get a grip. Don’t let life, or unforeseen circumstances, rule the outcome of your day, your week, your month, or your life.

Study Questions:

1. What is your first impression of this card?

2. What does this card mean to You?

3. Are there details on this card that especially stand out for you? If so, write them down and explain.

4. How does this card define relationships?

5. How does this card define financial circumstances?

6. How is this card relevant to health issues?

Affirmations for Meditation:

1. I won’t be afraid to take a chance.

2. I won’t be afraid to take a chance while using Common Sense.

3. I won’t let an opportunity pass me by.

4. I will learn and live, love and grow, by grasping at Life’s impossibilities.

5. I can do it; I can do it; I can do it!

A Tarot Reading for The Wheel of Fortune:

Wheel of Fortune ~ The World ®; 10/pentacles; Queen/cups ®
Everything is spinning, including the Earth and human lives, spinning towards their destiny, spinning out of control, spinning onto other levels, spinning closer towards endings and beginnings. Your movement, Wheel of Fortune, is dizzy and off-center, a little tipsy maybe, as if you’ve had a glass or two of wine, or something even stronger. There comes with this movement a sense of closure or completion, a sense of fulfillment, a sense of relief. Are you playing with us, or with yourself, dear Wheel of Fortune, as from the center of your card, you boldly and firmly state, “What goes around, comes around.”

Lady Luck, they call you, and with this power you wield, you either drop golden coins on surprised recipients, or you empty the pockets of those daring enough to face off with you one too many times. It gives the world pause for thought. Is life just really one big chance? Are we here to fulfill a destiny, or are we nothing more than numbers spinning on some luminous game of chance in the center of this big black universe? And what is destiny, after all, and what constitutes riches and golden precious coins. All of these things may be something different for each individual, and it’s this glaring fact that you chase us with.

Wheel of Fortune, you inspire us to follow our dreams, to listen to our intuition, to open our arms to visions. You remind us of the connection we have with Spirit and the laws of physics, and the hard reality of life. You remind us that chances often come from the most unexpected direction and source, and you fill us with a sense of hope. If life is a game, you tell us, we all have an equal chance to win.

Tarot for Grownups ~ (Review)

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1780995997/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i4

This 126 page tarot how-to was probably one of the most entertaining books on the great 78 I have read in awhile. The author and her unique storytelling style held me captivated right from jump. She told it like it was and thought out of the box when it came to the meaning of the cards. It was like sitting down with someone over coffee as they explained the inner workings of the tarot. She absolutely delightfully is not by the book and it just felt so real and refreshing. I would recommend this special helper to anyone looking for an out of the box approach to divination. Thanks Amythyst, you do so rock, I will never look at the tarot quite the same way again.Love & Light, Riki Frahmann

Love & the Cups ~ from “The Ultimate Tarot Guide…”

[An Excerpt]…from “The Ultimate Tarot Guide for Your Personal Tarot Journey”:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1790491517/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i5

Ace/Cups ~ With the ace of cups you hold in your hand all of the visions, dreams, and love you will experience in this lifetime… every relationship that touches your existence, every dream-scape that you travel in your sleep, every vision you experience through Spirit spills from the ace of cups. You swim within this realm enveloped by the magic of it all. The real dilemma of this ace comes in managing all of the images, emotions, and depth that you experience with feeling, really FEELING, life.

With the ace of cups, you will learn the importance of filters and boundaries.

Reversed:
Beware. There is the danger of being entangled in fantasy, deluged with paranoia and narcissism, caught in the web of self-deceit.

Be prepared to sort out reality from delusion.

My Personal Connection:
The Ace of Cups has been my biggest challenge in life (me, the Libra, forever connecting in partnerships), forever pursuing love and a fairy tale ending, not anticipating what each encounter would bring to me, what I would learn from it, what I would suffer for it, what I would take away from it. The Libra in me has not been content unless I was one of a pair, from the time I was 15 years old. There has only been three years in my 20s and going on three years in my 60s that I have been a single entity. And I realize now, looking back in reflection, that these single years have been the largest periods of growth and development for me.

This beautiful cup full of promises and love, commitment and passion, had to throw the water it contains in my face to wake me up, in order for me to see and recognize destructive patterns in my life, in order for me to break these patterns. Does this mean that the belief in fairy tale endings has been washed away? The idea of love and passion that never dies? The idea of soul mates and magical connections? No, of course not, but it’s the realization that those things must be chosen carefully, that you can’t take such big steps at face value and wish for the best outcome. It’s also made me realize that if those things are not for me, or not for me at particular periods of life, that’s okay too.

It’s taken a lifetime, but I’m finally at peace with the Ace of Cups.

The Blood, Sweat, & Tears of Self-Publishing a Tarot Deck

This is an amazing lady with lots of insight, information, and priceless hindsight.  If you’re thinking of self-publishing a tarot deck, you may want to check out three articles she wrote on the topic.  And yes, they were written in a particular order and are meant to be read in order to be most helpful.

What Does it Cost to Self-Publish a Tarot Deck?

The Actual Cost of Self-Publishing a Tarot Deck

The Intangible Cost of Self-Publishing a Tarot Deck

In the last blog post, a lot of the mental doubt and fatigue and anxiety and exhaustion that she experienced goes with publishing or self-publishing books as well as tarot cards.  I so connected with this lady on so many points!  The idea of any aspect of your creation being flawed (which it probably is somewhere because we’re only human after all) is a nerve-wracking invasive thought that likes to eat away at your brain.

At some point, the creator has to stop tweaking his shit and just publish the damn thing!  You could spend an eternity editing and re-editing, trying to reach some unrealistic plateau of perfection, until you would drive yourself nuts.

Happy reading!  And Happy Creating to the artists and writers out there with works-in-progress!!
