R.I.P. Zelda

Poltergeist and Teen Witch star Zelda Rubinstein passed away early this morning. I adored Teen Witch so here’s a trailer clip with all the funny 80’s outfits and songs. Zelda was adorable in this movie!  I always saw her as a tarot/palm reader and she was such an unusual persona that she was always cast in clairvoyant & witchy roles.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to the blogosphere! I hope you enjoy the time you spend with your family and friends.

I will be giving thanks for my wonderful family that is always my backbone, my friends that are endless sources of fun and joy and to our health and happiness throughout the year.

My favorite blessing is from Halcyon and it is a modified version of a blessing his Grandpa used to give, he was such a bright star on this little planet:

“Dear universe, thank you for the miracles in every moment. Help me to be aware of all my blessings and be a loving presence in the world.”

What are you thankful for?

Blessed Be: Llewellyn & Bibliomancy

I visit Llewellyn‘s website pretty much weekly.  I love seeing what’s on sale, looking at tarot cards and I love reading the blog (I mean how else would I have found out about this creepy cloud in Moscow?) and of course I love checking out the free spell a day which isn’t always a “spell” per say, but sometimes something very cool like today’s on Bibliomancy:

Bibliomancy can be defined as “divination by means of a book.” This type of divinatory magic can be performed anytime, and it’s a fun way to receive spiritual messages from our immediate reality. You can even do this right now, with this book, if you wish! Either think about something that you want to gain insight about or approach the divination ready to receive whatever message the universe wants to deliver. Have on hand a sharp needle or pin. After meditating, hold the pin up high, open the book at random, and stab the pin into the pages. Afterward, write down the words (on both the front and back of each page) that the needle stabbed through. This will form a random string of words that can be interpreted by the divinator. Look for the messages being delivered; they’re not always easy to see but are profound once they are recognized!

I am looking forward to trying this today.  I think I have just the book to use too as it is a lovely work of fiction that has great meaning to me.  I’ll let you know how it goes.  😉


New Category posts

I’m going to expand out since my beats and books categories aren’t being posted to as often as I’d like.  Life has just thrown a little curve and my book reading has declined a little (although I do have a book that I will be posting soon….just not every two weeks like I wanted) and music is sort of letting me down right now and I am not as inspired to write about any of the new music I have gotten.  So….

Welcome new categories:

Buttons – these are links I’ll post.  Fun links or new obsessions.

Blessed Be – I just feel that the Pagan stuff doesn’t fall under the Butterflies category too well and I want to write more about it and the more I write about it the less I feel it belongs with nature-y stuff.  So I’m splitting it up a little and Butterflies will be only about butterflies and nature-y stuff.
