Oops, meant to post this yesterday. It’s a short post but meaningful so you get it for the first post of September instead!
August has been a hell of a month. With a ton of celestial events happening, it’s been a pretty awesome time to wander out and stare at the sky. But lots of scary things have been happening in the news. Remember to support those going through crisis right now, like the hurricane victims in Texas, the mudslide victims in Sierra Leone, and the victims of flooding in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Support those you can and if you can’t, reblog the above posts so the news gets to those who can help.
Things have been happening around here too. I published a book.
Spirit Walker is the first in a series. You can buy it in print or e-book on amazon or createspace. I’m really excited to finally be sharing this story with you all. It’s also a huge weight off my shoulders as I can now focus on other things.
When it comes to posts, it’s been pretty scarce. I spent a much of this month remodeling my mother’s kitchen (and we’re not done *cries*) and attending a ton of personal life events like birthdays and funerals. I had little time between book stuff, orders, and all that other personal stuff to write posts. I still managed to publish all four Spell Saturdays (which is an accomplishment I’m weirdly proud of) and a book review.
First, let’s cover the book review. The Creative Tarot by Jessa Crispin is a book I recommend you reading if you’re a creator and a tarot reader or if you’re a tarot reader looking for alternative views of the cards. I wouldn’t say it’s a tarot book, specifically, but rather a book about creativity and tarot. If that makes any sense at all.
This month’s Spell Saturdays was theme with celestial events! The luck in gambling spell By the Luck of the Moon is one that I quite like because there’s lots of association layers involved in the moon and gambling.
Star of the Apple’s Heart Faerie Love spell is such a mouthful but it’s a good love spell when you want to bring a lover into your life and you don’t much care the form they come in. It’s a tricky spell to perform, wording-wise, but worth it if you’re willing to give it a go.
The Sun’s Invitation is part of a series of spells that work the exact same way. All are invitation based spells using different planetary invocations. The Dark Moon’s Invitation was published back in January.
Finally, I wrote Cursed by the Stars which is, as the title may suggest, a curse. I really wanted to offer a curse this month due to all the hatred being spread so venomously right now and I also wanted to stick with the celestial theme. This spell’s based on another spell I wrote and haven’t shared but I like it.
Outside of that, it’s been a quite month. I’ve spent the last week trying to get my backlog of orders out to my beloved clients. September promises to be better, I hope.
