‘Tis all a myth that Autumn grieves,
For, watch the rain among the leaves;
With silver fingers dimly seen
It makes each leaf a tambourine.

Patheos-Pagan: 25 Forms of Banishing – A Versatile Tool in Witchcraft
I am not a magical purist. I do not see any classifications of magic types or tools as isolated bastions, to be used in their most pure state. Instead, I see them as distinct ingredients which can come in handy for accomplishing a wide variety of goals, especially when used together.

Inner Journey: Why are you here?

A Note from the Universe
So I was thinking… I know you know that there’s the “you” that you know you are — adventurous, good-looking, and fun to be around.
And I know you know that there’s another part of “you” in the unseen who you’ve kind of temporarily forgotten — who completes you, loves you, and knows what’s really going on.
Well, how’d you like it if I removed the veils? Just for a second? Gave you a glimpse of who that special, divine, otherworldly essence is, so that you might at last begin to comprehend how extraordinary, sublime, and divine you really are?

“Nature never repeats herself, and the possibilities of one human soul will never be found in another.”
-Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Our individuality is our strength. We don’t need to imitate. We don’t need to be anything other than who we are. We are blessed with unique gifts that can’t be duplicated. The more we get to know ourselves, the more we become self-aware, the more that we will find opportunities to use these gifts to make the world a better place.
Daily Tarot: The Fool
You may have the best of intentions today but it won’t be easy to stick to any of them. There’s a lot of randomness in the air and you won’t have very much control over anything. Don’t let this lull you into becoming thoughtless or not caring about what you’re doing. Do what you can and save some energy for tomorrow when things might be smoother.
