Hello, and a very happy 2013 Dearies!
I've been plotting feverishly these first 9 days of January. I've got my hands on Leonie Dawson's awesome planners and am working my way through listing my goals for the year. I've been out walking in the snow and mentally taking stock of what's working for me and what isn't. I've been puttering around the office getting year-end done, and organizing like a madwoman at home. And I'm napping like a queen.
I'm also stepping out. Or up. Or into myself. I'm rather done with trying to keep my daily life separate from my spiritual/magical pursuits. Something about being in the last vestiges of my thirties makes me realize that life is too short to hide who I am, no matter who disapproves. Plus, it's just damn tiring. So, even though I'm not a fan of self-photos, you'll see an occasional picture of me now and then (there's one on the About page if you really need to know that I'm a real, live girl - in a kitty hat no less,) and I'm also posting a contact email if anyone (who is not a crazy spammer, or just plain crazy) wants to ask a question or just say "hi."
There are some ongoing blog adjustments - I'm needing to organize the blogs/links page so you know who does what, and where you can find some of the cool finds I blog about, and pictures need to be reviewed. I'll be getting to all of this over the next few months, but there will still be plenty to post about while the behind-the-scenes things are happening. I'm already feeling a bit of Spring fever and have ordered seeds and am knee-deep in garden plotting.
In the meantime, I wanted to point out to you a few cool things available (some for free) on the interwebs this month:
~ Cory, from New World Witchery just released the first quarter of his free calendar filled with magical dates and other cool tidbits.
~ The super-magical Miss Bri from Milagro Roots is having a free Phone Fest on January 30th. She'll be chatting about "Magnetism & Mojo." I'll be there - come & chat!
~ Rowan Pendragon has released her digital 2013 Magical Datebook. In her words:
"2013 for the Wild Soul is the latest incarnation of my popular One Witch’s Way Datebook that has come out every year for the last few years. It is both a magickal recipe book of sorts along with a 52 week datebook/planner for the year. The planner pages are dated for the year along with all the important dates that you need to know for the year plugged right in for you! It is a simple but effective way to carry with you all the core information that you need to plan out your magick for the year while also keeping track of your life!"
~ Ciro Marchetti of The Gilded Tarot and Legacy of the Divine Tarot fame, is re-releasing his Lenormand deck for the last time tomorrow (January 10, 2013.) This is a limited run release and the final deck that Ciro has said he will do. This deck is just as stunning as his other creations and I'm really hoping to snap one up before they are all gone!
