The Chariot: Favorite witchcraft tools to use?
Is it a little too on the nose to say Tarot cards? *grin* While, yes, it is a little bit obvious, they’re my favorite tools. Thanks to a bit of a tarot renaissance and some truly awesome indie artists the world of Tarot cards is getting more and more diverse. While we still have a long way to go in getting more diverse representation in Tarot, I am delighted at the progress that’s being made. I can actually find queer witchy decks, years ago if I’d wanted that I would have had to create the deck myself from scratch and even if I had, I wouldn’t have had a way to share it. Now I can find a deck for just about any kind of energy I want to work with and that is amazing. Now, if I could only stop buying new ones…
Kidding. Mostly, I’m going to keep on collecting them like the tarot magpie that I certainly am. Even if I don’t get to read with all of them as often as would be great, I want to keep supporting deck creators by giving them my money in exchange for amazing decks.
I also like using herbs and plants, lavender is my absolute favorite plant ally. This year I’m hoping to harvest some of my own home grown lavender that is growing in my gardens.
I also get a lot of use out of candles in my work. I find the act of lighting a candle helps me clear and designate a space and time for sacred work. It gives me something to focus on when I’m getting started. Clear my thoughts, light the candle, and watch it flicker and dance. I also like the ritual of choosing the appropriate color for what I’m working on.
What are your favorite tools? What should I try next?
