Scrying (I'm sure you know) is a type of divination where you gaze at a particular object or medium, such as water, and divine shapes and/or messages therein. This isn't something I've practiced much in the past. I prefer my tarot cards or my pendulum when it comes to divination. But staring at a fire has it's own unique rewards.
Aside from heat on a cold evening, the beauty of the flame has held people captive since fire was first harnessed. It's no wonder to me that the salamander is fire's elemental, because they are well represented in the way the flames wind around a log or lick the air. I had no problem seeing things in the fire - I just need a bit more insight as to what these things mean to me. Perhaps a bit more practice. Or a bit less Bailey's Irish Cream in my hot chocolate while scrying!
As for my October activities...after a weekend spent cooking, cleaning and eating Thanksgiving dinner repeatedly - I was done with all things turkey! I'm turning to things of a spookier sort. I decorated at work on Monday when no one was around. They were all very pleased yesterday when they came to work and spied spiders, pumpkins and skeletons!
Last night it was spooky things on the silver screen (but not too scary - I'm a big fraidy-cat!) Tonight it's taking some time to finally settle into the creepy "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" which I bought months ago, and still haven't read!
Tomorrow, I'm taking my neices shopping after school for some Halloween costume ideas. Little Witch wants to be a fairy, I think, but Drama Queen still doesn't know what she wants to be. It doesn't help that all the kids at school are wearing outfits that barely cover their parts! I wish she'd just go as a mummy. Or a ghost in a really long sheet.
If you know a way to keep 12 year old girls from growing up - please contact me right away! Maybe I should be scrying about this....
