Hello, World!... I'm going to be spending less time re-posting between Magickal Connections and Every Cat Has a Tale. This was suppose to be the blog I shared more of my Personal Stuff on, and I'm going to swing it back to that mode. For blog posts on witchcraft and tarot, you'll have to travel on over to Magickal Connections. And if you're not already, you might want to sign up at MC so that you'll receive an email when I post a new article.

I’ll be giving tarot readings at Next Millennium Friday, September 28th 3-7pm. This will be the last time I’m giving public tarot readings. Thank you to Next Millennium for hosting me all these years! In the future, I will be providing Audio or Video readings only, and those can be purchased at my tarot website:
Thank you to all the wonderful people who have come for readings over the past years, and especially to those of you who kept coming back! It’s been my pleasure reading for you.
If you haven’t experienced an audio reading, visit The Tarot Parlour and give it a spin. You’ll discover that these are a fast and easy way to obtain a uniquely personal reading. I read for people all over the world, and through the magick of technology we’ve made some amazing tarot connections.
In the wee hours of Sunday night (or early Monday morning), some of my kids and I will be headed for the Omaha airport where we’re flying out to Arizona. There are connections there now that I feel will grow with the years. I’m going to take advantage of this trip to immerse myself in Sedona for a few days and then go on to the Grand Canyon. I’m such an incurable home-body that this is a step away from my usual existence, ensconced in my old house and the busy rooms, enjoying the woodsy wild back yard, and just being surrounded by and appreciating our multitude of pets (mostly cats, 6 of them black), and all of this in perfect contentment.
But destiny calls.
I’ve been going through checklists of things to do, things to get, things to address, before leaving. The house-sitter is set with a loaded pantry and fridge and an abundance of pet supplies. Financial things are done, and strangely enough most of my monthly household bills have come in and been paid, so that’s one less thing to think about. I have to pack today (Saturday), and I have one more work-as-usual day coming up (Sunday). And then, we’re off!
I’ll be posting regular updates, photos, and video clips both at my Instagram and at my main Facebook page:
I’ve managed to get a few last minute witchy business things done, which were also on my list, including my Samhain Special at The Witch’s Corner: follow this link and scroll down, it’s right there http://amythystraine.blogspot.com
I’ve put together a charming little bag to celebrate Samhain and draw in the spirits, spirits of the season and spirits we wish to communicate with. Samhain is traditionally a time to connect with our ancestors and especially loved ones who have passed.
Honor your ancestors, and honor the spirit of Samhain, with these magickal items.
The Samhain Special:
a white spirit dollie, a bottle of Black Cat Oil, and a black votive candle
*Note:The Black Cat Oil included in this offer is safe for your skin, so feel free to wear it! It’s my own recipe, and it smells wonderful!
From The Tarot Parlour ~
With Samhain right around the corner, the end of the year coming, so many of us are questioning so many things about our lives. There’s relationships and the changes that come with them, the doubts, the questions, the mystery of it all. Some of us have reached pivotal points where jobs and careers are concerned.
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Is this it? Is this all there is to my life? Is this where I’m suppose to be?”… you’re more than ready for a reading to find some answers.
Follow this link and scroll down to order an Audio Reading
If you visit The Tarot Parlour, you’ll notice that a lot of options for readings through several types of mediums are no longer available. I’ll only be offering Audio Readings (in a wide variety of spreads & prices), and Video readings ($85) for a 9 card spread. You’ll also find a video on this page that was taped for a client so that you get an idea of what a personal video reading is like. (It’s a lot like sitting across the table from me, but you’ll be watching it on Youtube.)
I think this is called “semi-retirement”. I want to share my gift by doing what I love, and I love taping audio readings for my clients in the privacy of my home, usually ensconced at one of my patio tables in my wild and woodsy back yard. This is the most profound way that I connect with the cards and the cards connect with me. It’s magickal.
The video below is a promotional video I created for The Tarot Parlour, and I must admit I had a hoot playing with the special effects. Have a magickal day, and if Spirit is calling to you, book a reading with me so that we can get a clearer picture.
So, when someone tells you that you're practicing witchcraft the "wrong way", doing something "wrong", whether it's about what herbs you're using to make a particular oil, or what stone to use for what purpose, how do you respond?
Have you ever told someone that they're doing something the wrong way?
This blog post takes a hard look at superiority and opinionated ideas within the pagan community. It also takes a look at how a lot of us learn and practice the Craft. This blog post has a special place of honor at my OTHER BLOG, and that's where you'll have to go to read it. (click on the link in the big loud in-your-face caps)
