What Has Been Going on Lately…

It really has been quite a long time since I’ve written about something else than Tarot cards. (Just to let you know, yesterday we had our last Major Arcana card, and we shall continue with The Ace of Wands and the remaining 55 cards of the Minor Arcana for the next 56 Saturdays. :-)) I am really sorry I haven’t published any interesting articles lately. I maybe had this “writer’s block” (and a lack of time), but fortunately, I think it is now already pass me.

Some of you have told me that I don’t have to read reversed meaning of the Tarot cards. I admit I am just at the beginning of learning this skill, but I know that it isn’t mandatory for the cards to be read with the reversed meaning. Some readers prefer to do so, while others don’t. I prefer to use the reversed meaning, although I don’t read the cards really frequently. So, if any of you isn’t interpreting the cards with the reversed meaning, just ignore the Ill Dignified or Reversed section (or read it anyway if you are curious :-)).

We are already in the second half of October, and we all know what that means — Samhain is approaching soon. In only ten days, the Witches’ New Year shall begin. October really is my favourite month, not only because of this Major Sabbat, but also because of the autumnal weather I so very much admire, and how the leaves on the trees begin to yellow and then fall of on the ground.

I also have some news for you. I have my first school break from 27th October to 4th November, so my family and I decided we’ll go for a journey at that time, so unfortunately I won’t be home when the day of Samhain comes. I will absolutely tell you all about where I have been and how it was, as soon as I come back home.

Ayslyn and I have a special surprise for our readers that will be revealed on Samhain. Due to my traveling, I won’t be at home that time, so that special article will be scheduled to be published for you on the day of Samhain. I won’t be able to reply to any of the comments that may be created immediately, so know that I am not being disrespectful and ignoring your comments. I will respond to you as soon as possible! 🙂

Have a blessed rest of the day,
Cassandra.

    Hello Bright Girl,
    I hope you have a wonderful trip and I plan on reading and responding to your suprise post, I promise not to get angry when You don’t answer me right away. You should see my room. I’ve got orange and black lights in my ceiling fan light and I have a set of purple lights around my purple tapestry. I am in love with my sacred space. I let this reader do a card reading for me and usually I don’t bother because I don’t have money to spend when I can read my own cards. I know that it was silly of me but I did it anyway. She said that the ex is weighing me down and she is spot on about a few things that she really shouldn’t know because I asked about money not love and she said an ex-boyfriend is holding me back from moving foward in this transitional phase of my life. Not that she is wrong. She is really right but I found her on a black magic site. I know that is bad of me but I wondered what Bing considered black magic. I found the tarot. So I guess Bing thinks the tarot is evil. I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip honey. I can’t wait to hear all about it because I’ve never been to London or England I am dying to hear about the country side and everything that is going to be seen on your vacation. I am going to let you go now so Brightest Blessings Sweet Girl,
    Byrony.

      Merry meet Byrony!
      Thank you for replying to my article so soon!
      I don’t want to dissapoint you, but I am not going to London. I was there a year and a half ago, and I am not planning to go there very soon. Don’t get me wrong, London in an amazing and a very, very nice city, but that trip was quite expensive and going to London every year isn’t really an option for me. And that time when I went to London, I was nither a Witch, nor I had my blog to show my photos, so if I’ll go there some time soon, I will absolutely share the every detail of my trip.
      Just to give you a tip, I am going to the southeastern part of Europe. I will share all of my impressions and photos when I come back.
      Receive the brightest blessings,
      Cassandra.

        Merry Meet My Sweetie,
        I am just glad you get to take a vacation. I am not so lucky. I would love to go camping in my own back yard if it came down to it. I live in an apartment complex however and I don’t think the landlord would like that very much, I’m thinking about what I’m going to do for Samhein, and I think I’m going to bless my blank books, I’ve got five of them, One is a Phoenix rising from the flames and ashes to soar above the pain of the past at least that is what I think, One of my books is a huge Morrigan Blank Book, One is a Cletic Cross, One is an Antique Leather Blank Book, and one is a Fairy hanging from the moon Blank Book. I love each and every one of them. I am going to bless them. I am going to set my alter up and make a circle with sidewalk chalk upon my alter is going to be my offering dish of salt and my other offering dish of water, my incense and that will represent air and fire, and my athame. Then I will use the tip of my athame to put the sea salt into the water and I will walk the circle starting East and going Doesil. I will call my elements. East is the element of air, South is fire, West is Water, and North is Earth, I am going to use chime candles and silver for the goddess and gold for the god, yellow for air, red for fire, blue or purple for water, brown or green for earth. I am truly excited. I know that When I Go around my circle I shall state Let no one enter here that may harm me, Let nothing enter here that may harm me, and Let nothing remain here that may harm me. Then I shall light the candles and one white chime candle for spirit. I shall walk the circle three times and make sure my books are in the center stacked from largest on the bottom to the smallest on the top. I am going to concerate them with sea salt water three times, just a few splashes per book, run them through the incense smoke three times, and say my blessing. I am so excited about it I should send it to my friend Tom. Well I’ve bored you long enough my sweetest friend. Have a happy holiday and take lots of photos. Contact me at my yahoo.com email account if you will and I’ll give you my address and you can give me yours and we’ll send photos and letters to one another., I love to write. I would love to recieve a letter from you. I’ll send you the Theben Alphabet and you can decipher my letter. I won’t make it a long letter in Theban but I’m a writer so the rest of the letter will be long. I hope you are safe and happy, place a circle around your car, and drive safely. I expect to hear from you as soon as you can. Happy Samhein. Brightest Blessings. Byrony

    A trip to London? Oh, I hope you find some unexpected treats that you can bring back to show us. You may run across a witchy shop that has unexpected delights!

      Cassandra.
