T is for Tarot

Tarot cards have been used for divination purposes since the 18th century with existence of cards dating back to the 15th century. There are 78 cards in a tarot deck – including 22 major arcana cards and 56 minors. Just like in a deck of regular playing cards there are 4 suits and face cards. The three most common tarot card styles are the Rider-Waite-Smith, the Marseille, and the Thoth decks.

Today there are thousands of different and modern decks being created including some that revolve entirely around plants, moon cycles and even cats! Many are based on Rider-Waite-Smith, the Marseille, and the Thoth decks.

Examples of major cards include: The Empress, The Lovers, Death and The Sun. Each card has its own meanings. Cards can be interpreted to mean different things based on the reader, the spread of the cards, the orientation of the card, etc.

Tarot can be a large part of your magickal practice. It’s a huge part of mine. What deck are you using?

S is for Samhain

Samhain is a Gaelic festival that marks the end of harvest season and the beginning of winter. It begins on the evening of October 31 and ends the evening of November 1. It is widely observed in Ireland and Scotland but has now spread an includes neopagans and wiccans. Samhain originated as far back as the 9th century.

Samhain celebrations include lighting of bonfires, feasting and divination. Ancestors are honored more prominently during this holiday as well.

Samhain and Halloween are close in timing but are two very different celebrations. Halloween is always on October 31 whereas Samhain is the middle date between the fall equinox and the winter solstice. The thread which has run continually through both Samhain and Halloween is a connection to the dead and the supernatural. That connection was thought to be made possible by the thinning of the veil between worlds, which was at its thinnest at Samhain.

Samhain is pronounced a few different ways. Let us know how you say it in the comments 😉

N is for Necronomicon

Many people still believe the Necronomicon to be real, but it’s actually a work of fiction. Created my H.P. Lovecraft, the Necronomicon is a fictional grimoire often referred to as the Book of the Dead. It is referenced many times in Lovecraft’s books including it’s first appearance in the book “The Hound” in 1924.

It is a substantial text boasting over 700 pages. It has been referenced in many movies, books and television shows.

What’s your opinion of this magickal grimoire?

A is for Altar

Altars are used commonly but vary from practice/religion to practice/religion. We use altars as a physical representation of ones practice. This is a powerful tool for a witch to utilize as it houses your magickal space. Altars can also be seen as a sacred space for you to harness and access powerful source energies, the gods, ancestors and the rest of the spirit world and even our own higher self!

What’s on your altar?

On my own personal altar I have many crystals, objects that represent the four elements – air, fire, water and earth as well as candles, tarot cards, etc.
