My altar is a mess these days. I have been working at it often, and I admit, I’m terrible about cleaning up mid project. Last night I was looking at it and decided this weekend I would take care of it.
Samhain is always a busy time of year. I did an office cleansing, 2 house protection spells and then my own divination and spell work. And in the spirit of being organized I actually wrote out one of the spells I did to put in my BOS. That is something else I am a bit terrible at, getting my notes collected and put into order in my book. Usually I just staple them together and put them in a binder, but I am making an effort to actually transcribe things nicely. Otherwise, years later I find random slips of paper with half a spell and I can’t remember what it was for.
I re-read my tarot reading from my birthday. I find it useful to go back and see what the cards were telling me and doing a check in with what is going on in the present. There was a note about going back to basics and starting at the beginning. So I wandered over to my bookshelf and let my fingers run over the spines of my books. One I had picked up in a thrift store and never read popped out.
So I plan to work on tarot with this book Around the Tarot in 78 Days. I’ll be sure to review it when I am done and let you know how the exercises are. Has anyone else read this one? What did you think of it?
