TAROT DECK REVIEW ~ Panda Tarot (video)



Next Millennium ~ http://magicalomaha.com
The Tarot Parlour ~ http://tarotreadingswithamythystraine.blogspot.com

During the editing sessions with this video, the 8 of Wands was accidently deleted. It's there, take my word for it. For me the eight of wands is an indicator of how fast things are going to happen, or how slow it's going to take for the scenario revealed in a reading to play out. This card is all about the speed of the draw. Welcome to my back porch.

 The mural that you see on the far wall was painted several years ago by my daughter. Her inspiration was the High Priestess tarot card.

The music is by Kevin McLeod, amazing as always, and I'm going to have to find the link I need to put here...bear with me!

Ask the Witch ~ Oh Boy, the Questions I Get!

The following are actual questions that are laced in the comments on this blog from various pages.  You would think some of the answers to these questions would be obvious to the people asking them, but it’s often hard for people caught up in negative circumstances, or a negative frame of mind, to view their situation honestly and to clearly see what’s needed to fix it.  I’m delighted that people feel comfortable enough at Magickal Connections to ask what they want to ask.  I sincerely try to think of the best answer, the most helpful answer, the most needed answer possible to each and every individual leaving a question.  If anyone else has some good advice to pass along to these people, please do so with a comment.  Fresh insight is always appreciated!  *Note:  I’m posting the questions unedited, as they appear in the original post.

Let the Magick Find You
 
#1 ~ Greeting Queen Amythyst, first of all I think your presence is so beautiful, well I have a trial that is suppose to start the 23rd of this month. It has been going for at least a year now and they have charged me with felon poss. of a firearm. Well I’m tired of going back and forth (which I know the universe is working) so I simply want the court cases to either disappear or for the case to get dismissed/not guilty. I have been to jail before and it’s something i never want to do again. I’m considering the beef tongue spell for the outcome I’m looking for along with something to help on me not ever going to jail again. If there’s anything else that you think you could shine some light on please feel free! Thanks in advance

My Reply ~

Just a quick note here before we get to the specifics… If you don’t want to ever go to jail again, one sure way to prevent this from happening is not to break the law. I know, this seems so obvious, but for some reason the universe insisted I say it.

One word of caution, and that is that the universe, the laws of karma, they all work towards justice and proper endings. There are spells out there that should not be cast if you’re actually guilty, because the energy will come back to bite you. Think about this before you resort to spell casting for this situation. If you’re actually not guilty, then go for it with a clean conscience and pure intentions.
This is my little light, and I hope it’s shining! Best wishes for your future.

#2 ~ My ex has decided to just come back into my life, use and discard my body and emotions and I was looking for a binding spell. I wanted to make sure #3 was the most appropriate for the occasion. I’m tired of him popping up whenever he feels like and then disappear like nothing ever happened.

My Reply ~

Excuse me…Your ex “decided” to come back into your life? You sound as though you don’t realize that You have a choice here, that You can make a decision about whether you want this individual to come back into your life or not. Spells are okay, and I’m not saying that you don’t need one, or could not successfully use one. But before we resort to spell casting, lets take a good look at the situation and what you could do mundanely to correct it.

If you’re tired of this man popping up in your life and using you: 1) Cut all ties, and I mean all ties. Sometimes, even without knowing it, we might send mixed signals to an ex… I’m done with you– but it’s okay if you still call and I’ll talk to you, or it’s okay if we still see each other occasionally, or it’s okay for you to interfere in my life. CUT ALL TIES 2) If your ex does not take this finality well, or still tries contacting you, and you’ve exhausted all efforts to stop this, like changing your phone number, blocking him on social sites, etc.; it’s time to get a restraining order and make it official. 3) Stop allowing someone to control you; find your inner strength; know that you are an adult, not a toy for this individual to play with at will.

First try the mundane way. If you do, and you’ve done all the important things you have to do to keep this individual away and they still wind up in your life…then pull out the magick.

#3 ~ PLEASE HELP ….. PLEASE!!!!
I’m Cuban we only do spells for health,wealth,luck,and cleanses. unable to go to Cuba I Was desperate So I got help from a very old Mexican lady we know to help bring me and my hubby together that PEOPLE SPENT YEARS doing voodoo to break us up. She took me to Bury our names on paper, birthdays,pics,and his socks in a grave yard with pins and very colorful ribbons i HEARD it’s for separation. Is it true please help.

My Reply ~

First, Since you said that you’re Cuban and can’t do this type of spell (a love spell to reunite a couple), I’m trying to wrap my mind around the difference between just doing a love spell on your own, or participating with someone else to do a love spell. In any case, the fact that you participated with this lady means– you did the spell, honey. Second, how do you know that people were doing voodoo to break you up? Most of the time, people involved in this kind of activity are very discreet. And more often than not, when a couple’s relationship is just done and over, it’s just done and over naturally, all on it’s own. Not all relationships are meant to last forever.
About the spell, I’ve never heard of it. And again, trying to figure out why you would think that someone who did a spell for you (or with you) would be working a spell for the opposite outcome that you intended.

Beware of paranoia.

#4 ~ I have a question with binding. If someone is binding you would you have a dream off someone cutting you ooen and takes just your internal organs and sews you up. I also am an angelic being thats been reincarnated.

My Reply ~

I don’t do dream interpretations. The symbolism involved is so unique and personal to every individual that it’s hard to say what a dream like this might mean. It could mean that you’re afraid of showing your true inner-self to most people, or it could mean you watched a slasher movie before bed. Hard to say. I would say that if someone bound you, you would no longer be able to do, say, or indulge in whatever it is that they bound you from. That’s the whole purpose behind a binding.

#5 ~ Will burning these candles one timework do i have to burn them. Again suppose they turn black while they are burning do i to burn them a gain ehere does i get these herbs from can i put more than one person name in the can dle do i buried the glass to [*Note:  this question pertains to a spell on the “Command & Compel” page at this blog… https://wytchymystique.com/spells/command-compel-spells/ ]

My Reply ~

I’m killing two birds with one stone here ~ The answer is yes to both questions. When bringing something to you, keep the remnants from your spell in a safe place, or even in a place that is fitting the intention, that is the “stuff” from a love spell under your bed; a mojo bag filled with the remnants from a money spell in your purse; etc. Second question: not only is it okay to do a spell more than once on the same person for a different request; it’s also okay to repeat a spell on occasion, especially when you’d like to add a different twist to the outcome, for the same request…. also, I don’t really think the word “request” is quite right in these situations, but since this is how you worded your question, this is how I answered it, thinking it would be easier for you to understand. A spell by no means is a “request”. When you cast a spell you are deliberately and willfully manipulating energy in the universe to manifest a change, to move energy, and it certainly will. The word “request” implies that you are asking for something.

#6 ~ Is this spell white magic?  [*Note:  this question pertains to a spell on the “Command & Compel” page at this blog… https://wytchymystique.com/spells/command-compel-spells/ ]

My Reply ~

Depending upon the magickal practitioner you ask, you’d probably get a variety of different answers. Even in the occult world there are extremists at both ends. There are the fluffy bunnies who are ever in fear of getting their feet wet and doing some ballsy magic that’s got some in-your-face punch to it because they might offend someone or something, and at the other end of the spectrum are people who love the dark aspect of everything, the darker and more warped the better, and they are always searching for something darker. Personally, I would say this magic falls in the shady gray area. Follow your own moral guides. Cast at your own discretion.

#7 ~ Hello I am just curious about doing the command spell. I watched another witch video and she said to use the Black candle for yourself and the white candle for the person you want to command, but you’re saying do the opposite. So now I am really confused. Also can this command spell be used for a group of people or a entity, ie a company. No one specific person, name unknown.

My Reply ~

“Also can this command spell be used for a group of people or a entity, ie a company. No one specific person, name unknown.”
Yes to all of the above.  And to reiterate what I sent in the email– If you ask 5 witches how to do one particular spell, you’re going to get 5 different answers. Spell crafting is like cooking, and everyone does things just a bit differently and uniquely, suiting to them and their energy and their associations. As I said, “It’s okay if my potato salad is a little different than your potato salad. I’m betting that it’s all good

#8 ~ Does good magic really exist?

My Reply ~

Of course it exists. It exists in every healing spell, every spell to bring positive change to someone’s life. It exists in the form of unexplained miracles and connection with the Divine. Good magick can be found everywhere, even in the prayers of people who don’t believe in magick…It’s all “Magick”, honey.

Paranormal Monday ~ Black-Eyed Kids & Shadow People

I've been finding and watching Youtube videos on both Black-eyed Children and Shadow People, and let me warn you if you're easily spooked, watching these videos (or listening to these podcasts) when you're home alone on a dark and stormy night (or any night) might leave you more than a little uneasy. But it's fascinating.  For anyone who's never heard of either one of these paranormal phenomena, in a nutshell, here's what they are ~

Black-Eyed Children...(sometimes called Bek) are young people, often children, with eyes that are solid black with no differentiation between sclera, pupil, or iris, and are occasionally reported to have blue or bluish tinted skin like that of a corpse. Those who report encounters with them often feel that the children were somehow supernatural and extremely dangerous though they could not explain why.

Often they can be seen playing games and singing the nursery songs Old Man Long Legs or He Jumped into a Bramble Bush. They are usually near abandoned or deserted areas. Sometimes, the reports talk of them appearing at one's doorstep- usually alone or in a pair. They appear to be unusually confident, yet shy children who avoid your gaze and look down, hiding their eyes, but speaking with an eloquence far beyond their apparent age.

[Source: http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Black-Eyed_People ]

Shadow people appear just as their name describes them, as faceless human shadow forms. Some common features of shadow people are:
  • A shape that is generally male in appearance
  • They are aware of us and react to our observing them
  • The typical shadow person is tall, ranging from about 6′ to 7′
  • Very often they seem to be wrapped in a cloak or large old fashioned cloak
  • Hats are not uncommon
  • Their appearance has depth to it, unlike a shadow cast on a wall that is flat
  • Quite typically they have no visible eyes, but some will have glowing red eyes
  • Shadow people are rarely reported to have spoken or tried to communicate
  • Physical objects seem to not matter to them and they can walk through walls
  • Can have a demonic shape and demeanor
[Source: https://pararational.com/types-of-shadow-people/ ]

If you love creepy fascinating paranormal phenomena, I'm betting you're still with me after reading the definitions of these etheric mysterious creatures. Now the fun stuff. I'm posting some of the videos that I've been watching, and the two I'm posting here today are radio podcasts with Art Bell. I'd love to hear YOUR perspective on these topics! Feel free to leave comments below. Have you had a personal experience with either one of these entities? Do you have a theory about what they are?

Enjoy!... And keep the lights on. :)

Rainbows ~ Love ~ & Yellow Brick Roads

Today I stained my wooden staircase.  I’ve never stained anything in my life, and I discovered that wood stain is nothing like paint.  (Paint I know, paint I can handle.)  I practiced on a board in the garage a little while, playing around with it, until I felt comfortable enough to start on the double staircase that makes up the foyer in my split-level house.  This is the final product, still wet.
 
 
The result of having a staircase wet with wood stain is that we have to use the backdoor.  Following is the sign that I posted on my front door so that it would be made clear:
 
 
And yes, there really is a Yellow Brick Road:
 
 
 
I have another special gift box up and ready to go, and when it’s gone, it’s gone.  This one is geared to Love & Romance, with the sweet romantic energy of rose quartz, to the passion of the red rose, and the mystery of the Queen of Cups in a ravishing scented magickal oil.  Anoint the red love candle with this Queen’s oil and fan the flame of passion.
 
Special One-of-a-Kind Item
 
The Luv Box
 
 
Candles, Oils, & Herbs for LOVE
 
This special box includes:

1 red scented votive candle
1 large dried rose blossom
1 bottle of magickal oil — Queen of Cups
1 rose quartz crystal point pendant on a 36″ black-ball chain
1 rose quartz ring (size 8)
1 pair of crystal quartz point earrings
 
The Luv Box
 
 $38.99
 
 
 
Today has been a productive day magickally.  I’ve created sweet “Rainbow Mini-Poppets” that are small enough to carry in your purse or your coat pocket, small enough to tuck discreetly in an office drawer, or your glove compartment…
 
Rainbow Mini-Poppets
 
These colorful little dollies are charged with soothing peaceful energy to bring calm and emotional comfort.  They are aligned with the colors of the rainbow (and the chakras) to insure a positive flow of energy emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Because of their small size, you can easily tuck them in your purse, coat pocket, or glove compartment. Keep them with you to stay close to their energy.

Hello, Pisces!  Welcome to my back porch!  It's been a while since I've done one of these readings, and it looks like an exciting time coming up for Pisces.  I'm using the Pagans Way Tarot by Anna Franklin and the Celtic Cross Spread.

The music for this video is from Youtube's library, by the amazing Kevin McLeod...

Check it out at the Youtube music library for creator's.
