Tarot Reading

tumblr_ntybfhp5im1twbg8qo1_500

So, as I told you, there will be some new contents on this blog. Let’s start with a bi-weekly tarot reading for each sign of the horoscope.

I’ve always enjoyed reading tarots, sometimes for fun when you are with friends, other times for an in-depth different point of view on my life.

Another thing is that I love to do the reading with a bit of music in the background. Today I’ve picked Clap Hands by Tom Waits… just perfect.

ARIES: The Six of Swords just came out for you.

You’re about to take a journey, not necessarily a physical one, it might be a spiritual journey. You might feel lonely during this time, trying to avoid your loved ones but you really need some time for yourself. A slow process of healing is about to begin, because once the bottom has been reached there’s only one way then… and it is UP UP UP!

TAURUS: The Five of Pentacles is your card.

Life doesn’t seem very secure for you at the moment, it seems like you have doubts. It can be for some problems that you’re might facing, mainly financially speaking. You should consider your attitude towards money. It’s also a moment when you need support and being comforted from family and friends, otherwise you might have the impression of feeling ignored.

GEMINI: Four of Wands – Reversed

Given the upright Four of Wands reflects stability, the reversal of this card can indicate that you are going through a period of transition where there is little stability and security. Nevertheless you have to mantain a positive attitude and being grateful for all that you have as some good changes might come soon-

CANCER: The Hierophant

Well, my fellow Cancers (yes, I’m one of you). We need to shush and submit and be careful about “doing the right thing”, but what exactly is doing the “right” thing? The answers are within us. We have to be wise in taking some decisions but we are also supported by a strong figure (it might be a relative, partner or colleague), someone you can always count on.

LEO: The Emperor

This card shows stability and power. You have a strong figure by your side, but it might be you as well, supporting your family and loved ones and comforting those around you. Right now you need to be surrounded by loyal and trusty people and you’ll be able to change a situation that, at the moment, you’re not comfortable with.

VIRGO: Ten of Cups – Reversed

You’re not satisfied right now. A situation that you were really looking forward to is not showing up, so because of this you’re thinking that your loved ones are not supporting you. This is the right time to express your emotions as it is not healthy for you to keep everything inside and you might risk not to be true to yourself.

CAPRICORN: Five of Swords

You’re having a hard time, facing some obstacles that you were not thinking of. There might be some tension in the air but that doesn’t mean that you can’t overcome it. You just have to be strong and not too ambitious. Being humble is not always a bad thing and remember that, in certain situations, you can’t always win.

SAGITTARIUS: Seven of Cups

You’re  bit confused and, maybe, you’re daydreaming too much lately. This is the right moment for being more focused on a choice you have to make. You need to separate what it’s real from a future illusion and carefully evaluate the pros and cons of each option.

SCORPIO: Seven of Wands

You’re on top of your enemies and a winner. Nevermind the snakes that are surrounding you as they’re going to lose. You’re, slowly, overcoming obstacles and challenges thanks to your strong self-confidence. Expect to be challenged and be ready to win by showing the others how strong you are.

LIBRA: Knight of Cups

You will receive a visit soon, someone who will bring you a message, a surprise or some expected money. Maybe someone borrowed money from you and he/she is going to give it back to you. You might be invited to an event that will bring you joy and new acquaitances. This is also a great time to be more focused on your hobbies and interests.

AQUARIUS: Ace of Cups

‘Money makes the world go around’ and this is true for you guys! This is a moment of abundance, especially in the love field. You might also receive some recognition at work. This is also a time of giving and being thankful for everything you have and going to have. Step up your game!

PISCES: Page of Wands

Someone new is coming to your life, a free spirit who’s going to bring a thrill in your life. You have to be more enthusiastic towards life and let your creativity lead the way. You’re going to be involved in some new projects and activities. A trusted friend will be by your side, helping you to see the world under a new perspective.

That’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed the reading as much as I enjoyed doing it. If you have any question don’t hesitate to contact me at: sgtellepepper@yahoo.com

Witchcraft 101: Witch’s Ladder

As I’m starting a new “journey”, I’ve decided to share all the things I’m learning here on my beloved blog. I’ve always been interested in witchcraft but never really “gave it a go”, so I bought a few books (which I’m reading and I’ll probably review here if you’re looking for basic books) for the absolute beginner, like me! What I’m learning right now is to be more confident about me and the things I can do and achieve,  to stay more in contact with nature and everything that surrounds me. In this new section of the blog I’ll be mainly writing about what I’m experiencing and most of the topics will be focused on traditional witchcraft.

The first topic and kind of spell I came through is “knot magick” which is a very old form of magic and also requires minimal supplies, it’s mainly about the intention you have while tying the knots. It can be used for protection but it also has an evil dark side, as I wrote before it mainly depends on what your intention is.

One of the oldest form is known as the Witch’s Ladder, which I found interesting and visually stunning. A Witch’s ladder is a fetish made from knotted cord, yarn or hair and used in witchcraft as a curse but also in any kind of spell work, meditation or ritual working. It typically consists of a rope or cord with (usually) three, nine, thirteen or even forty knots. Feathers, bones or other trinkets are braided into the string, and special chants are spoken during the creation process to empower the talisman to do its creator’s bidding. It can be created a section at a time or all at once. The knots of the witch’s ladder enable a witch to concentrate on repetitive chants or incantation without having to keep count (similar to Christian Rosary beads), and enable the witch to focus will and energy on the desired goal. It was believed that witches of old could cast a death spell over a person by tying the knots and then hiding the cord, and the only way to undo the spell was to find the cord and untie each knot.

Nowadays the Witch’s ladder is primarily use in healing, binding and wish-granting, knot spells may be created for such diverse purposes as reducing pain, binding love, ensuring safe travel or creating a peaceful environment in the home. The string or cord can be made out of almost any material, but natural fibres (such as hair, wool, hemp and cotton) are preferred.

By knot of one, the spell’s begun.
By knot of two, the magic comes true.
By knot of three, so it shall be.
By knot of four, this power is stored.
By knot of five, my will shall drive.
By knot of six, the spell I fix.
By knot of seven, the future I leaven.
By knot of eight, my will be fate.
By knot of nine, what is done is mine.
