Keys and crossroads,
In the secrets of two torch's flames,
Are mysterious codes
Even Zeus fears Her many names.
Obsidian ophidians and onyx wolves scatter,
And become dear guides,
To those She thinks matter.
In a voice like fog She confides,
To Her Witches, Priests, and Priestesses,
Trickles of Her mysteries,
Almost like pages of Her diaries.
I hear the wisdom of Hekate's soul,
Dragons confirm Her ancient truth,
In Her scrying bowl,
She sees me wild and uncouth,
She delights in my dancing to Her song in the center of the Crossroads.
So I came up with this spread because recently on tiktok witchtok drama, some 13 year old kids got tricked by something pretending to be the Greek Gods. These “gods” told them they are giving up their godly powers to mortals…like one named Katie…yeah. So I came up with this spread to see if a trickster is tricking you or are you actually talking to the deity you believe in?
So this spread is kinda funky…
This spread has no order to it. At least as mathematically as I can guess. But yes it is to bring your own chaos energy to show you mean business!
Tricky Trix Spread
- This card should represent said deity’s myth.
- Their favorite myth about themselves theme wise.
- Their least favorite myth about themselves theme wise.
- Their interest in you.
- What they intend to give you if you work with them.
- Qualities of their personality.
- The true them (their intentions).
- What to expect working with them.
I did this spread with Loki being the trickster of all tricksters I did it twice.
And it confirmed that Loki is Loki as I knew it would. So if you are questioning who you’re talking to and aren’t aware of a deity’s energy or energy signature this spread could really help you!
Thanks for reading and happy witching!
I wanted to do more devotional work with my deities so I came up with this spread to help get some prompts started for my devotional journal. So, here is the spread:
Deity Tarot Spread
- This is you in the relationship.
- This is your general need from said deity.
- This is what your relationship entails at the moment.
- This is Them and what They want you to know about how They’re feeling.
Here are my results with Artemis, Longmu, and Loki:
And of course I’ll translate my terrible handwriting. *note that reversals are also read with the right side up meanings.*
Cards: Light Seer’s Tarot – Page of Pentacles, 10 of Swords (r), 10 of Cups, Knight of Cups (r).
- New opportunities, earth magick, ambitions, beginnings plus good news, financial opportunities.
- Recovery, resisting the inevitable, finging hope, healing.
- Love, soulmates, harmony, divine connections, wholeness.
- Moodiness, protecting the heart, seeking connection, chivalry, romantic.
Overall it shows our divine connection as soulmates. Since I was 16 and did blood magick with Her, even when I ignored Her, She was always there for me. Together we make an unstoppable team. I am forever grateful She chose me and allows me to blossom under Her love and protection. Thank you my lovely Goddess!
Cards: Chinese Tarot – Ace of Staves (r), Ten of Coins, 4 of Cups (r), The Empress.
- Cloudy outlook, fortune, Adventure, decadence.
- Riches, safety, family, inheritance, ancestry, home.
- New possibilities, new knowledge, weariness, aversion.
- Feminine progress, fruitfulness, accomplishment, family, motivating.
This shows my warm and yet exciting relationship with my soul mother. We can be rather tired when it comes to work, but once we have our minds set on something we accomplish it. Home and family mean everything to Her, and I am glad I get to be a part of it!
Cards: The Dragon Tarot – Queen of Cups, Knight of Wands, 8 of Wands (r), King of Cups (r).
- Desire, lust, passion.
- Dynamic, wonderfully complicated, balanced opposites.
- Quickness, speed, haste.
- Open with emotions, blunt, honest.
I believe this is about our more private life. Nevertheless, it shows Loki and I have an unbreakable bond full of complex passion. We're quick to get on each other's nerves and quick to forgive. Our relationship is fun yet deep. I'm grateful Loki is mine.
Now on to my new daily practice. Rune of the day!
Today was Fehu, but I’m actually going to show you my first I started almost a week ago.
Also wanted to show how my spirituality is doing and to show off my lesbianflag manicure:
Alright well thank you for reading and happy witching!
I’m excited that though my shop hasn’t officially opened yet, I still have supportive friends! Here is a necromancer’s pendulum I made with obsidian, amethyst, cinnabar, glass, jade, and Tibetan silver.
Yes, there are dead flowers in the pendant.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned to see the grand opening of my shop! Happy witching!
So if you’re familiar with my blog you know I have this deck on digital form, but I loved it so much I got the physical copy…lol sorta. It did not come with a guidebook but I was able to download it from the link on the back of the box.
But yes I do love this deck being that I am a neo pagan and this deck just screams that. I did a light/shadow reading which shows your strengths and weaknesses more or less.
The Knight of Swords shows that I’m ambitious and strive for success in everything I do. Which is true I am a perfectionist and also a Slytherin so this card is very accurate.
My shadow card, the Seven of Wands, shows that I’m often misunderstood, defending my accomplishments, and need to erect energetic shields. Very true since I’m in tiktok and I’m sure I’ve pissed ppl off just by being me. Plus living in a house full of judgy Christians doesn’t help.
A very accurate reading indeed. Physical copy 9.8/10. Kinda wish the cards were slightly bigger but they are indeed travel size.
Now onto a little devotion to Loki.
For those who can’t read my handwriting:
Loki you are the love I was terrified of but once I opened my heart the most thrilling love came to me. Thank you for never giving up on me. May our journey together be eternal. You're beautiful soul never ceases to amaze me!
I don’t often write in my prayer journal (I should) but when I do it’s basically love letters or praise.
This one was inspired by last night when I just felt a deep connection to Loki. I often do, of course, but the intimate connections we have are like nothing else. Godspousing isn’t always about the glorious, sometimes it’s the mundane day to day romances that really make one feel appreciated. Loki makes me feel appreciated and I hope I can return the feeling as much as Loki has done for me. Mortals come and go in this life, but my beloved is eternal.
Alright, thanks for reading and happy witching!
For this Beltane I did a ritual for bringing abundance and creative fertility.
I used a green candle for the Green Man and a red candle for the May queen for their unification. I also used my teapot cauldron to burn my wishes this season.
With the candles I jumped over them 3 times saying this spell:
“Let abundance overflow and cease all my woes!”
I also did a few readings today as well as my daily tarot reading. I dont have pics, but they were from the Viking Oracle and the Dragonfae Oracle. The overall message? Trust the gods and goddesses and keep learning and growing without being stagnant and retarding (not meant towards those with special needs).
Also…to love and accept my divine feminine sexuality. Fitting for today. I came out this year as a lesbian so I’m all for the feminine sexuality indeed.
I also dedicated a green tea, apple and elderflower drink to the Fae. They were delighted even though They can taste everything I do from a spell I casted well over a year ago.
I also made lavender and rose honey pancakes. These are the perfect Beltane treats. Naturally the recipe is below. But these are delightful and a great treat to this beautiful day.
Beltane Lavender and Rose Pancakes
- In two separate small dishes put crushed rose buds in one and lavender in the other.
- 1 tbls for each.
- Add 2 tbls of sugar to each dish.
- Add 1/2 cup of boiling water to each dish.
- Steep for 5-7 mins.
- In a pyrex dish add 1 1/2 cups of self rising flour.
- Add a teaspoon of honey.
- Add a tsp of sugar.
- Add a tsp of poppy seeds.
- Once well steeped, strain the floral teas into the pyrex dish.
- Add petals from the mixtures as desired.
- In a pan use coconut oil to grease.
- After well stirred add to the pan.
- Cook on medium to medium high and cook until golden brown. Enjoy!
Thanks for reading yall and happy witching!
