New Moon spread for 29th of November 2016

Hello moon childs and merry meet,

How are you and I hope you are doing great while we entering the last month of 2016.
I want to give you a new moon tarot spreead for December and I use Tarot Lenormand and it is refers to Marie Anne Lenormand.
Like the other reading I have done so take what resonate with you and leave the rest :)

This is not the best time of your life right now, you may experience some sort of loss where you are blaming yourself. Can it be loss of a loved one, a friendship? You feel it is difficult to move on and you have put youself in a mental prison where you think that you don't deserve to move on to happiness.


You need to leave behind the thing you can not change and that gives you a great opportunity to work on what you can change. If you know the reason for thing working for you? Was it really your fault or do you think you could do things differently? There always two sides to every story. And a question can be do you want to try to fix it or are you better off to leave it alone? Don't worry because you will land on your feet, the fog that was confusing you will go away and will grow from and you will learn from it.

Your intensions you need set to grow is to prioritize your life and starts with baby steps + give it time. If you are rushing too fast you may have to go back, do changes and mabe not learning a important lessons.
You may not see the finish result in the beginning, but that is ok because for every baby steps you take the closer you are the main goal. The first step can be the hardest and it will go easier for every step you take. The most important for you to do now is to be moving, it may not be fast, but at least you are moving

You may feel discouraged, but it is the perfect time for you to go inwards because you are the one who knows what actions you need to take resolve the issues.Are you true to your feelings? You must start to help yourself and not every one else. You need to be a star in your one life. You need to ask youself if this is important to me? If not, you need to leave it behind.

This moon phase it is a good time to see achievements and feel good about them, material and emotional achievements. This is a good time to let go of jealousy and mood swings and unrealistic goals or expections. Take actions right away you see it, cut them in the bud and you are better off.


Blessed be and merry see :)

Pagan challenge week 5 - what does this time of year means to you

Hello my lovely ones and merry meet :)

This week question in the PaganChallenge is What does time of year mean to you - What does Yule means to you?

So, this time for me means that I can calm down.. go into a semi hibernation if you like :) Like nature goes into a hibernation state in the autumn and stays there till the spring.
it is time to relax and recharge your batteries for the new year and reflect on the year that is almost behind us and think about the year is upon us and slowly plan out the new year.
December is also a special month for me and it is because it is my Birthday month :)

Advent is a Christian time, but for me it is a peaceful, soulful, thoughtful and a wonderful time. If it snowing it is a bonus:) In the these weeks before Yule I meditate a lot, I see alot of movies, I drink homemade mulled wine (not a diabetic best friend - but still). I spend these weeks on friends & family, me-time.

Like I have talked about in a previous post this is my first sabbath and I am somewhere in between Yule and Christmas. Although I don't believe in God I do find alot beautiful things in the Bible and Christianity. My husband and I was talking about the ten commandments the other day and how they hasn't nothing to do the Christianity, but it has all to do with way of life.. Let me sum up the ten commandments in two words: common sense.

Ok, I went off topic for a while, I am going to do few changes this year, it still going to be a mash of pagan and christian stuff, but I will not go bananas this year like the previous years.

Yesterday, it was the 1st sunday of advent and usually it is when I go into my semi hibernation and I am going to try something new this year and that is to really relax and I got this idea from RhomayRealm on YouTube and she had said that she take a month off and she also said turn off all notifications, so you have to send her a text or give her call. I was thinking that is a great idea, I will try this for the month of December ;)



Blessed be and merry see

we light a candle tonight

Hello little elves and merry meet :)

How are you all doing and I hope you are doing well. I hope you all have a peaceful time before yule/Christmas/Hanukka/Kwanzaa

I want to share a poem of Inger Hagerupand she was a Norwegian author, playwright and poet. She is considered one of the greatest Norwegian poets of the 20th century.
 She wrote a poem about advent, but I think this poem is so beautiful. It is four verses I will share them on each sunday before Yule :)



So we light a candle tonight, we light it for happiness.
It stands and shines for themselves and us who are present.
so we light a candle tonight, we light it for happiness.


Blessed be and merry see

Pagan Challenge week 4 - Your take on wheel of the year

Hello and merry meet,
How are you and I hope you are doing fine as we are heading towards December and yule/Christmas

This week question is my take on the wheel of the year and my take on it.

I always noticed the change of the seasons and I have always celebrated the christian holidays - I still do that, but I changed the names back to the pagan names.

I am a Norwegian pagan and what I can gather we celebrated summer solstice that isn't a christian  holiday.

Yule is my first sabbath and I am a bit iffy... Let me explain, I am the only pagan in my family and yule is 20th to 23rd of December and rest of the family celebrate Christmas and it is from 23rd till 27th of Christmas... On the other hand I am like "woohoo - extra celebration days" *fist bump*

When I came out of broom closet to my husband I said he wouldn't notice a whole lot of difference, better food at the sabbaths, the house will be decorated seasonly and honouring to the sabbaths. When it comes to my blessings, meditations, rituals and all the good stuff he will not see that - a) He don't want to see that (he is a christian, but he is very ok with me being a pagan ;) ) b) I don't let him see my rituals because it is very personal to me unless he is genuin interesting to learn more about paganism that he already knows.

I think I leave it here so far and I will come back when I come to each sabbaths :)

Blessed be and merry see

Pagan challenge week 3 - Do you have an altar or sacred place

Hello lovely people and merry meet

How are you and I hope you are well.

I was debating with myself if I should do this week question or not because this is personal to me. So I decided to do it, but I won't be included any photos.
This week is about altars and sacred places. I have a main altar in my bedroom and I have shelf in the bookcase in my livingroom that is my altar,

What is an altar? I believe it depends who you are asking... a Christian would say an altar is any structure upon which offerings such as sacrifices are made for religious purposes, and by extension the 'Holy table' of post-reformation Anglican churches.<------ according to wikipedia.
If you ask a pagan majority may say they have an altar because they want to honour the God and Goddess, honouring the wheel of the year, the elements and all the good stuff :)

My altar contains all the things that is important to me like my Buddha, lights that represent the elements, angels, I also have a stuffed "teddy" that my husband bought me when we visited Prague in 2014. Since I grew up with this show when I was a kid, I thought it was so sweet of him :)

Every once and a while my budgies will give me their long wing/tail feathers. I save them at my altar.
I also use my Osho Tarot as card of the day, I burn scent sticks.

I always had an altar, from I was a little girl without knowing it was an altar. Let me ask you - What is an altar to you? What does it mean to to you? How would it look like? What would you put on it?
Like I said I am putting things that are important to me. The reason I ask is because my mom used to put out things that was important to her, it could be things she bought, birtday presents or it could be the mutant shaped clay ashtray we used to make in the 1st - 3rd grade at school. Would you concider that as an altar? I would say yes.

I will end this blog when my husband found my altar :)  
I was talking to my husband and he asked where I wanted this item (i don't remember what it was) and I replied just put it on my altar for now and he looked at me so surprised. Do you have an altar? Where? Since when? I had a giggle and I showed him. Is that an altar? How about that... My husband and I have been together for five years and he haven't noticed it. I explained it to him I always had a altar of some sort without knowing it was an altar. Then he says: hmmm, funny age :) When I try to explain to him my latest project and/or interest and he doesn't "care" about or don't understand. he goes: hmmm, funny age (not in a mean way:) )


Blessed be,

Susann

Review of the Fairy Tales by Lisa Hunt and Arwen Lynch

Hello lovely ones,

How is everone? I hope you are doing great this Thursday/Friday.

I got some happy mail this week and I got Fairy Tale Lenormand by Lisa Hunt and Arwen Lynch.
 
The Lenormand comes in a super cute tin box and it will be great if I bring the cards with me without be worring if the box will hold up. Tin boxes is always a big plus. At home I don't keep the Tarot decks in their boxes, but in pouches :)

It also comes with the little white book :) But this is way better than many little books out there. This booklet has 125-ish pages with information.
The foreword is written by Donnaleigh de LaRose who is a international tarot & Oracle teacher.
With each card you get keywords + where you find the card in the playing cards. And you get a little history with each cards. In the back you will you will have 4 example spreads.
The back of these cards are beautiful and the colours is a bit off because of the light and the camera. The cards is a bit thin, but not it is not too floppy. on the other side it is very bendable.
I would prefer it was slightly thicker, hey ...it is just me :)
The color of the borders are the same on both sides..thankfully. I must say the eye have been on the details.
If you prefer smaller cards, these cards are perferct

The art is paintings and it is so beautiful.These cards are so detailed, but yet it is not to busy. The message in this deck really come through.
It can be difficult not to go into the tarot trap. In Lenormand is the message short and precise while in tarot you can go on and on and on for minutes. Another plus is that these cards is not collaged by a computer like many cards out there.


 
 A wonderful surprise as that L.Hunt did was to put in two extra cards, an extra man an extra woman.
I have missing this for my other Lenormand cards because I have given questions if there are another man/woman in their relationship. I think this gives more accurate reading.







I haven't worked with yet, but I can't wait till I do. I am doing a weekly series soon so I will be working with these and other oracle cards.



Blessed be

Susann

Pagan challenge week 2 - Are you in or out of the broom closet

Hello pips

How are you doing today, I hope you are doing well. It is this time for a blogpost about pagan challenge again. This week's question is: Am I in or out of broom closet? Well, I am out now haha :)

This is a difficult question to answer because no matter where you are in the public realm you may end up explaining, defending, debating, justify or talk about my path of pagan. Everyone thinks they have the right to say something about this, but like I say: if you don't sleep in my bed, live in my house or paying my bills you don't have a saying in my life at all!
As a human being we wear a lot masks when are out in the public realm and we are not always aware of it, but we do and sometime there are not appropriate to flaunt your rocking pagan/wiccan attitude:) So we have to use our antennas regardless religious/human skills and all that good stuff :)

Let me do this short and sweet: I am a pagan and deal with it, enough said :)
