@Kapalika you could tie in what you have resolved to do with your anger as well. Further affirmation.

Lounge / A place to share Art

Thought that a thread to post all types of artwork, whether done by members or something you've found online, etc would be nice to have.

I've always been curious about angels. What are they, where do they come from? I find some of the modern graphic and digital designs to be pretty cool, and of course, classic statues.

This one caught my eye earlier...

I've gotten fired from two jobs just for being a little open about my Setianism.  One of the great influences in my life Dr. A. Brook, who was my music and piano instructor for about 8 years back in the 1990's, probably would have had a heart attack if she ever found out that one of her favorite students was "Satanic".  All of my immediate family, mother, father, brother, sister-in-law, are Christian.  They know about my religion, and over the years have come to accept me for what I am.  We just have one rule, never discuss religion.  ;)

AH, did you file for discrimination?

As usual, pure bliss and indescribable ecstasy filters in through my body. I open my eyes and everything appears through a different lense. Someone else is seeing through my vision.

The night before, I had caught a black scorpion type creature in my bed, it was large, the size of a lobster, with many legs like a lobster. Crustaceans show up in much of the tarot, mostly in the Water suite. This wasn't really scary. I have moments of sadness and pain, but they pass so quickly. My life is saturated with irrational bliss. The beautiful rooms and lands I am invited to are new to me. I love them all. Where do they exist? I struggle to find the right word. Aethyr? Etheric? Not astral. Astral is something else. I think I may need to structure a word for use. Pretty sure Regardie uses Etheric. Yet the Ether theory has long since been abandoned so it seems ill-suited to the true Body of Light phenomenon to pair it with something so outdated, old-fashioned, plain wrong.

I'll have to think of something.

I drew the Prince of Staves today, then I walked a couple of miles to the grocery store. The closest one! It wasn't so bad.

So, when I was 5 I heard this whisper in my ear as I held this piggy bank I had received as a gift - it was some family heirloom. The whisper said "Drop it, do it, do it!" and so I dropped it on the floor, a piece chipped off. My mother heard this and came in and looked and me and started yelling at me irrationally about it. Then the voice said "Tell her the devil made you do it"


Very distinctive voice I didn't really hear this sort of stuff ever again it was just a one time deal. I told her that and she flipped out. She smashed the bank on the floor, I think she was upset about some thing or another...

She doesn't remember it today but it stuck with me, especially considering I had no idea what the devil was...we were Hindu at the time, she had converted from Witchcraft of the Thelemic/New Aeon hybrid variety.

If you view the eclipse, be prepared with the proper eye protection. Even with that you should not look longer than 2-3 minutes at a time.

If it were me, just open yourself up and see what happens. You might come away totally changed...I can't wait to hear about your experience.  :)

And sometimes, experiences are just experiences in and of themselves, with no deeper meaning to be found. I don't know if I'd add anything outside of the experience, to bring about a greater one. (that's just me)

General Discussion / what to do eclipse totality

I got to where ill see it. Everything is set in place.

I brought a bunch of magical supplies Id thought id need.


one idea involves my dog who died on a new moon on the winter solstice and i did a big ritual for on a super blood moon. I got a bunch of his bones with me. I think I could use this event for something involving him. He seems to be tied to moon events.

Or I could do something totally different. That's the only idea I got so far other than some vague sense of something to do with Kali or my general concept of Darkness.

Or maybe just enjoy it and get lost in worship and hope to get some special spontaneous religious or spiritual insight.

Suggestions?
