Fire, My Spirit
Celtic Cross Spread… I fell to pieces at work and had to come home.

My ex emailed me. Haven’t spoken to him in oh, a year? I fell apart at work, spoke w/ my sup, and came home. Broke out some vanilla incense to help relax and lit my dragon’s blood candle. Then I broke out the tarot, and did a Celtic cross.

Everything made sense, except the Final Result, until I realised the specific question I had asked it was about why I was feeling the way I was.

Present Position - Justice

Immediate Influence - The Tower

Goal/Destiny - IX of Cups

Distant Past - X of Swords, reversed

Recent Past Events - VI of Pentacles

Future Influence - III of Cups, reversed

The Questioner - The Lovers

Environmental Factors - Judgment

Inner Emotions - IV of Pentacles, reversed

Final result - IX of Wands, reversed

Without shuffling further, I simply asked what would happen next. I got the X of Wands, reversed.

Clarified, as to what it meant for me, and/or how to go about reaching that burden lifting, and got Ace of Cups.

Sulis, the celtic goddess of the hot-springs in Bath.

From Wikipedia:
In localised Celtic polytheism practised in Britain, Sulis was a deity worshipped at the thermal spring of Bath (now in Somerset). She was worshipped by the Romano-British as Sulis Minerva, whose votive objects and inscribed lead tablets suggest that she was conceived of both as a nourishing, life-giving mother goddess and as an effective agent of curses wished by her votaries.[1] The tablets were often written in code, by means of letters or words being written backwards; word order may be reversed and lines may be written in alternating directions, from left to right and then right to left. While most texts from Roman Britain are in Latin, occasional texts may be in a Celtic language. Typically, the text on the tablets offered to Sulis relates to theft; for example, of small amounts of money or clothing from the bath-house. In formulaic, often legalistic, language the tablets appeal to the deity, Sulis, to punish the known or unknown perpetrators of the crime until reparation be made. Sulis is typically requested to impair the physical and mental well-being of the perpetrator, by the denial of sleep, by causing normal bodily functions to cease or even by death. These afflictions are to cease only when the property is returned to the owner or disposed of as the owner wishes, often by its being dedicated to the deity.[2] One message found on a tablet in the Temple at Bath (once decoded) reads: “Dodimedis has lost two gloves. He asks that the person who has stolen them should lose his mind and eyes in the temple where she appoint.”

44 Days of Witchery: Day 1

Day 1. What’s your witchy background?

Began looking at paganism/earth-based religions around 2010. Still learning and reading and discovering… been considering myself an “observing” pagan since around Imbolc 2011, but I’ve decided to officially start a year and a day (though I’m not Wiccan), and do a year and a day self-dedication to studying/working with Morgana this Litha.
