Patheos-Pagan: So you Want to Build a Grimoire
APRIL 21, 2023 BY MARSHALL WSL
It’s 1998. I’m 12 years old and watching Practical Magic for the first time. It’s the first 15 minutes of the movie and the Aunts are looking through a big old black tome. Not just a tome, but a double sided grimoire that’s been in their family for centuries.

TIME TO BLOSSOM
“The voice of our original self is often muffled, overwhelmed, even strangled, by the voices of other people’s expectations.”
— Julia Cameron
Many of us unconsciously believe that we’re unworthy or defective. We adopted this belief very early in our lives when the people we looked up to disapproved of our demands, wishes and behaviours. We concluded that we had to learn to be good.
Unfortunately, ‘being good’ usually meant giving up our own differences or uniqueness. We learned that we might get the love we wanted if we acted and felt like others wanted us to.
If we seek true joy and connection with life, we now need to remove these artificial masks and express our deep authentic nature.
“For all those years you’ve protected the seed. It’s time to become the beautiful flower.”
— Stephen C. Paul
A Note from the Universe
It hasn’t always been this easy being the Universe, Before you came along, I was a lot less.
Before you came along, there was no one who ever thought like you now think. No one who ever felt what you now feel. And what I treasure most, no one who’s ever possessed your view of reality.
And all of these things have been added unto me.
Thank you, you’ve done enough. You are enough.
I am so pleased, you have no idea.
With gratitude and adoration,

Daily Tarot Monday: The Wheel of Fortune
You may have made careful plans or scheduled everything to perfection, but there are too many variables today to allow most of your plans to play out. Things may come up, one after another, and make this a scattered day. This is temporary and probably will have little impact on tomorrow, so just flow with it best you can and don’t let the instability bother you.
Daily Tarot Tuesday:The Devil
You don’t want to spend the whole day trying to swim upstream. Work on your self-control and don’t let anyone or anything lure you into overreacting or flying out of control. Be practical and don’t get in your own way. You can have your silly fun later, and fantasize your revenge, at home in private with those who love you no matter what you do or say.
