Love is Eternal ~ A Poem

Hi everyone! I am back from my short little hiatus and hopefully that will be the end of inconsistent posting for a while. We are going to finish the week off with this post and Friday’s post. Next week we will get back to videos as well. I thought I would ease back in to the routine with a poem I wrote. Not quite sure if I am any good at poetry as my sister is the only one I’ve ever shown my work to. Hopefully it’s at least alright. I wrote this poem for Yule of 2017 just like my sister did for Apollo (link here to read her poem). Mine however is dedicated to Gaia.

Love is Everlasting

You’re earth around me

You make up soil beneath me

Wet, brown between toes

 

Birds in all the trees

The animals walking earth

The plants in the ground

 

Your scent in the air

It is crisp and brings me life

You are all I breath

 

I feel your presence

Your energy surrounds me

Coursing through bodies

 

I feel the beating

Drumming I feel in my heart

Your heart against mine

 

We are one together

Two halves of a whole united

Love is eternal

 

That is all I have for today. I’d love to hear any of your pagan/wiccan themed poems or see any of your art related to the subject as well. Feel free to send them to wiccans_arent_wicked@hotmail.com and if you want I’ll even post them to the blog with any info of yours you want attached.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Eight of Cups

Image result for eight of cups crystal visions

When pulled upright this card is about a time of change. In order for this change to occur there is something you need to walk away from. We all need to transform ourselves throughout our lives now and again. This is especially true when you’re tired of living your everyday life. Now is the time to go on a journey that will bring you to a better understanding on life in general. This card shows that you aren’t happy with the way your life is right now and you need to get in touch with your higher purpose. You may have been trying a bunch of things without committing yourself to try and see what it is you want from life but it is becoming exhausting. It seems like you need to step out of your comfort zone and get away from what is familiar. This card typically shows that one is tired of the material world and is getting reading to undergo a spiritual journey.

When pulled in reverse this card is about being really confused because you are not sure what direction you should be going in life. This confusion is usually caused because you are not sure what path is best for you. This can often lead to people moving aimlessly through life with no real goals. They just go with wherever their life takes them. It is also possible that you are aware of all this and that you need to pick your path a go with it. You likely haven’t been happy for a little while now but in order to achieve the happiness you want you need to go down a new path. Leaving everything you know behind to pursue something new can be really scary as you are not only experiencing change but you are also leaving the comfort you’ve grown accustom to. This is all however necessary to get where you need to go. This causes a lot of people to be stuck in this limbo of making an important decision. I think a good, common, example of this is when you’re unhappy in a relationship. Do you continue being with this person despite being unhappy because it is comfortable? Or do you break up to find happiness elsewhere but experience the extreme discomfort of starting over? It is important to have courage and to believe you deserve the happiness you crave. 

Here is a tarot spread to help you on your path to transformation. First I would take the eight of cups out of the deck and mediate on it while thinking about what isn’t making you happy anymore. Then put the card back in the deck and shuffle and pull using your preferred method.

Thyme

shutterstock_206465842_1024x1024

Thyme is an herb that is associated with the water element and the planet venus. The gods/goddesses it is connected to are Freya, Ares, and Aphrodite.

When it is used in spells it is used to increase strength and courage. If you’re working on something that seems unachievable you can use thyme in a spell to keep a positive attitude. If you find your home has a lot of melancholy, hopelessness, or only mellow negative energies you can wash your floors with thyme infused water or burn the thyme to smudge your home. If you find yourself having restless sleeps or nightmares you can put thyme under your pillow. You can wear or burn thyme to bring good health, increase psychic abilities and to make a woman more alluring. You can also take a ritual bath infused with thyme to cleanse any of your sorrows or regrets. Make sure to grow thyme in your garden for good wealth. It is said as thyme grows in your garden so does your wealth. Also, if you enjoy gambling then you want to make sure you have some thyme on you as it is thought to improve luck.

If you enjoy working with faeries you should keep thyme around and grow it in your garden as faeries really like this herb. If you would like to communicate with faeries I recommend you incorporate thyme into a spell.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Queen of Wands

download (1)

When pulled upright this card is about a person who is very focused, has a lot of passion, is courageous, and individualistic. However these traits can sometimes come across as self-centered. This person is a positive person to be around. They will stay by your side and stand up for you when necessary. If this is a reading about work then the queen can show that you are going to accomplish a lot in a small amount of time. If you are looking for a job this card suggests that a woman will be a big part in your next career move. In general your career life is looking pretty good. When doing a reading of love the queen is a positive card to get. If you’ve been on the search for love this card is a sign that you may find it soon. In terms of money the queen can suggest you have been spending a lot of it and recommends you stay in control of your expenses or else you will come to regret it. When doing a reading in spirituality the queen can suggest you are hungry for more.

When pulled in reverse it could mean there is someone who could use your help. When doing a reading about work it can mean that you are going to face some obstacles. However, this card suggests that you should carry on and continue doing what you think is best. This card can also be a reminder for you to be a bit more rational. Sometimes you can become unbalanced by your chaotic energy. If you balance yourself out you will be more successful. 

Just in case, you’re doing a money reading and you got the queen of wands telling you you’re spending too much, here is a tarot spread to help you sort it out. First I would take the queen of wands out of your deck and meditate while thinking about your money situation. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

26c4ce10e0461c3f601a725c36ba8c9b

When pulled upright this card is about there being something within you, encouraging you to make discoveries, investments, or take new steps in life. Perhaps you have something you want to do but there is some sort of conflicting message keeping you from doing it. This card represents this conflict that is within you, keeping you from showing the world that you exist for a reason. If one is wise this card will encourage you to be courageous. It should make you get over your conflicts and inner turmoil so you can reach your goals. Get rid of all your fear and do something! Do everything your mind is set on. Show the world who you are and that you aren’t someone to mess with. This card shows you a level success that can only be reached by being courageous.

When pulled in reverse this card is about having a bunch of ideas but not being able to go anywhere with them. Here is an example that happens quite often. Maybe you have this idea for a blog and you start it and have super high hopes for it to take off but it just never does. In this situation you are likely to do a reading and get the page of wands. When you get this card in reverse take it as a sign that maybe you should put your time into other ventures.

Here is a tarot spread that can help you find your courage. First I would take out the page of wands and mediate on it while thinking about what it is you want more courage to do. Then shuffle and pull your cards using your preferred method.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Nine of Wands

b08535b96ee7a172e72ef110b09b5d3b

When pulled upright this card is about hope. When you see this card it is about your life and just how many troubling times you have overcome due to your determination and will. Despite how much you’ve already been through there are still some trials left but if you keep hope and approach your problems head on you will be successful. This card can also be about betrayal which has caused you to not trust others. Whatever the betrayal was it probably has happened a number of times and it seems hopeless. This however is not true. If you search deeper you will find that hope and courage. Someone or something may come into your life and change your whole viewpoint on your previous struggles.

When pulled in reverse this card is about not being a risk taker. They struggle making long term goals or commitments as they are afraid their decision is irreversible. They don’t trust others so they are putting barriers up between them and others. There is also a potential fear that they don’t have the resources to face the upcoming challenges which you may be considering running away from or just avoiding. Despite your desire to avoid this challenge you need to confront it. This challenge could be stopping you from growing. This card encourages you to be brave, however do not be careless or make impulsive decisions that will effect you in the future. Lastly, this card is about a mental/personal fear that is crucial to get past overcome so it doesn’t consume you or hold you back.

Considering that this card is about having challenges that require hope and not trusting others, I thought that this would be a good spread. When you do this spread meditate on the nine of wands. While you do this think about the challenges in your life that you could use some hope for. When you’re ready shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
