Happy almost Thanksgiving!

Rita schory's picture

Hello everyone and happy Monday!!  As promised, before I make a new tarot spread blog for the week, I'm making an entry with all the links for the individual card readings for my last tarot spread.  Click on them if you'd like, or not, or feel free to ask me to pull a card for you for a specific question/day.  And then a new tarot spread for the week!

Why Are We Hurting More People To Prove We're Right? What's your take on this?

Explain this to me... please? 

I dont understand why our trust has gotten so poor. Trust in the system is gone.. certainly theres some "skepticism" about our president elect. Facebook marks thousands of people "dead" on their profiles. So we protest. Our right as Americans, and then we break window of stores, burn cars, and even our shoot Americans.

Elder Futhark .. The Viking Runes

​The Elder Futhark is one of the oldest forms of the runic alphabets. It contains 24 letters or runes. Its runes are found carved on artifacts such as jewelry, amulets, tools, weapons, and stones from the 2nd to 8th centuries. Today it is often used in Cleromancy, a form of divination using the, casting of lots, or casting bones or stones.

How NOT To Do Activism

On November 1st, Arianna Nason posted the following description on Facebook regarding a situation that occurred at the North Dakota Access Pipeline protest. Her impassioned post perfectly describes how a misguided approach to activism can unintentionally exacerbate the situation.

Soap Painting for All Ages

Beat powdered soap and water with egg beater to consistency of thick whipped cream.  For color add food coloring.

Paint on news print, wrapping paper, paper bags, or art papers.

Paint with thick brush, fingers, spoon, stick, etc.

Pieces of other paper (colored?) can be cut or torn and pressed into place on soap paint and will stick.

When dry, paintings will last indefinitely.

Ogham Tree Runes

Ogham Tree Rune oracle, wood burnt on wooden acorns. They have been cured with oil and stored with dry herbs recognized for their cleansing and protective properties. -All items are handcrafted by myself. They arrive in a small bag with a booklet containing a description of runes with common divination meanings. -

National Popular Vote

National Popular Vote. http://www.nationalpopularvote.com 

Sounds simple. Sounds fair - like... every vote would actually COUNT! However - it's not like it sounds... some hate the Electoral College. But the two can co-exsist.  

Did you know...? ( Taken from their website...) again we can make  difference. Logon and if you agree - find a way to help.

excert...

 

Happy Autumn - great time to rake up so friends!

Results and Feelings of This Spread as a Whole

Rita schory's picture

So… we finally come to the end of this spread and today we’ll be starting up a new one.  In addition to focusing on this card, I’m going to give the rundown of all the cards and what I thought of the reading as a whole.  And if anyone would like me to do this for them with all the cards, please let me know.

Will I enjoy the process?

Rita schory's picture

This is a good question.  So many times we focus so much on getting things done and worrying about the outcome that we forget to enjoy the process and take time out of each day to appreciate the blessings that come along with the journey.  Today I picked the two of pentacles.   This card assures me that my many interests, such as: yoga, tarot, photography, travel, crafts, anything creative, etc; adds up to one very satisfying life path.

Happy Monday!!

Rita schory's picture

Hello everyone!!  I know I was supposed to be doing this every day, but the last few days have been so busy that by the time I have a little bit of time to myself to write, I'm just exhausted. So, on this Monday morning, before I do anything else, I'm taking the time out to finish what I've been working on so I can move onto the next spread and next week of self-discovery.

Burners Without Borders

Updates on Louisiana Relief efforts by the BWB extended community for survivors of the Great Flood:

Current count is over 50 Burners who have directly contributed their labor, time, or resources to any one of a dozen different projects!

And now you can, too..

Redefining Billionaire

I highly recommend Jason Silva's "Shots of Awe" series overall, but this video does a pretty good job capturing what I hope to achieve with this blog.  

Key phrases from the video that help outline what I intend to discuss here:
