Weekly Readings from Wooly Witchy

Asali shares a review of the Welcome to Knight Vale tarot deck.

Beth from Little Red Tarot shares Simple Tips for Not So Simple Lives and the Ring of Fire tarot spread.

Northern Lights Witch shares A Tarot Spread for Values-Based Resistance.

Lavender Cream Scones, I desperately want to make some of these. Maybe with lemon in the icing.

Releasing into Norse practice: The beginning of a heathen’s journey.  This is the first in what’s going to be a series on Little Red Tarot.  It’s a fascinating invitation to join Abbie Plouff, in her own words,  on her journey and her “personal relationship to Norse practice, as well as what this means for my identity and my search for purpose.”

From Lavender Moon: What to do when spirituality becomes a struggle.

From Northern Lights Witch: a glimpse inside her studio.

Make this Soup!  Seriously: Roasted Cauliflower and Chickpea soup.  It’s vegetarian and you could easily make it vegan by omitting the heavy cream at the end.  And it was delicious.

 Check out the Fearless Girl Sculpture that just appeared on Wall Street.

A little late since it was Wednesday but: What to do if you can’t take off work for international Women’s Day.  I would have liked to call out of work, but since I didn’t hear about that idea until Tuesday I wasn’t able to.  I guess that means I need to get on some more mailing lists or something.

 What I’m reading: Big Magic – the title kept buzzing around me and I kept seeing it mentioned in important places, so I took the hint and I’m giving it a shot.
What I’m knitting: Pegasus Parade Socks
What I’m looking forward to: A local thrift store is having a 99 cent book sale this weekend, so my wife and I are going on a book date :3
What I’ve been up to: teaching a friend to wheel spin and playing a lot of Lego Jurassic World (we finally got a WiiU and the new Zelda game is on its way!)

I’m back from vacation!  It was tough to go from high 70’s and white sand beaches back to 20 degrees and windy in NH, but such is life.  I went back to work for Friday to get a handle on e-mail and all that rot, and then I had a weekend to get back into step with NH life.  With that, here are some things that caught my eye this week.

11 Crucial Organizations To Donate Your Money Or Your Time To.

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese: I love mac and cheese so very much, but being diabetic I shouldn’t indulge quite s0 much, but if there’s a lot of veggie to balance it… 😉

And speaking of things I shouldn’t eat… unicorn hot chocolate.  I actually probably wouldn’t have that one though, I don’t like white chocolate, but with that many sprinkles, marshmallows, and glitter to eat how could I not love it?

An online discussion of the Pink Pussyhat thing is happening.

A little girl and her mother recreate famous images of black women for Black History month.  It’s pretty awesome.  And gave me some new women to learn about.

From Autostraddle: This Is a Nightmare and a Genocide: Jaquarrius Holland is the Sixth Black Trans Woman Murdered This Year.

A Primer on Women and Civil Disobedience.

From Lavender Moon: What I wish people knew about Tarot.  She talks about predictive readings and why she doesn’t love them.  I feel very similarly.  Predictive readings don’t put the power in the hands of the querent.  I feel very strongly that my readings should empower you to take control of your life.  ❤

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors On Intersectionality In Activism: BUST Interview.

Bringing a little Woo into your workplace.  Love these ideas!!

I think I need to watch this:  When We Rise.

My wife and are participating in this #CreateThisOracleDeck challenge this month.  Are you?

Victorian Ladies Perfume Guide.

The FBI opted not to prosecute any of the Gamergate harrassers.  Shock, they decided it’s fine to threaten and harass women.  I mean, boys will be boys, right?  So funny when they threaten to blow up universities because women are speaking at them.  -_-

Nevertheless She Persisted tattoos.

from LRT: 10 ideas for your Tarot Blog/Journal – you’ll definitely be seeing my take on some of these ideas coming up 🙂

Reclaiming Rainbow Brite: A beautiful essay on Tarot by Hilary on rainbow hair and being yourself.  And Oh My God, I so very much identified with this piece.  Take out the bit about being a teenage witch because I came to my witchy-ness later in life, but so much of her experiences rang true for me too.  Middle school hell, the tentative hair coloring all the while wanting more.  ❤

From Sheep to Shawl – Knitting as a Political Act

A New York Legislator Is Sticking It To Mike Pence With Proposed Law Banning Conversion Therapy.

Holiday Self Care.

Talking through Conflict: Communicating with Loved Ones over the Holidays

From Vellamour: Confessions of a Witch – this is a lovely essay about the illusion of perfection and how it’s absolutely an illusion.  This is another one where I identified.  My altar is almost always a mess and I struggle really hard with doubting my intuition and trusting in the magic that I create.  There’s this huge ‘rational’ voice that tells me constantly that I’m making it all up and it’s a bunch of hogwash.  ❤ this little piece.

Hosted by LRT – a Review of the Linestrider Tarot – I have this deck but haven’t yet worked with it much, but it’s so beautiful!

And older post that I came up again and I feel is very timely:  Asali shares her after work Monday night ritual and it sounds like a perfect and relaxing thing that a lot of us could really use right now.

Why feminists (and women) need intergenerational friendships.

Check out this new indie Tarot deck: Dark Days Tarot – and if it’s your jam, it looks like mine, back the project on Kickstarter!

Joanna Powell Colbert shares a lovely piece on Entering the Dark, Sacred Silence. Very timely for me as we’ve had overcast grey skies for days and it’s making me feel weighted down and tired.

A post on oracle decks from Lavender Moon.  I just added a bunch to my wishlist.

From Autostraddle: Some healing magic and spells

What to do when a Tarot reading confuses the heck out of you.

What I’m Knitting:  Technically this was crochet, but I made chair socks!   Also I’ve picked up my cross stitching again and I’m working on my Frosted Pumpkin Stitch Along from last year.  I’m so behind!

What I’m watching: the New Gilmore Girls Episodes!  I am 80% happy and 20% WTF.

What I’m eating:  ZOMG YOU GUYS, this Okonomiyaki recipe is something insanely delicious that I wasn’t expecting to taste that amazing.  And I’m not even a big fan of cabbage.  But just thinking about it makes me want to eat it again.  And I’ve made two batches of this Thai cucumber salad in the last two days.  And I still want more.
