I am back today, feeling sort of invigorated, and sort of disheartened. I did my first paid tarot readings last night (woot!) but I am still learning how to run a successful business. I have to adjust my pricing, and figure out how to best sell things at a craft fair.
I have another opportunity to sell at a booth soon in August, and I am thinking about setting up an Etsy store. I need to order some business cards! That’s on the agenda for the next few weeks.
First of all, another Grimoire Files!

Shocker: There is no Universal Threefold Law in Wicca First of all, I dislike how many people presume that Wiccan rules/greetings are the standard amongst pagans, even amongst groups of pagans! There seems to be an assumption that every Pagan celebrates the Wheel of the Year, follows the Threefold Law, and finishes every spell or blessing with “So Mote It Be”. I see it at conventions and festivals. When I saw this blog post, I felt drawn to it! Her literary analysis of the original Gardner novel is incredibly interesting!
“The idea is that the witch returns things triple, not the universe. The witch is herself the agent of a threefold response, not the universe. “

Recreating the Tarot Deck for the 21st Century These are SO GORGEOUS! This was a short show featuring over 70 different artists at a show in London. I, for one, am really hoping that they make a tarot deck of these, because I am really digging it!
