If there was anything more my friends needed to prove that I am a witch in disguise, they got it. I succumbed to Taro cards and spell books in a bookstore recently. They say that the Taro deck chooses you as much as you choose your deck. So while I did buy the standard Raider Whaite taro deck I was drawn to the Merlin Taro deck. I ended up buying beautiful Taro guide books as well.
Laying out and interpreting Taro cards is easy as it is difficult. I found that I can completely relate to the Merlin Taro. According to the Merlin Taro, I am the Queen of Serpents. Amazing coz her spiritual animal is the cat and I am a snake according to the Chinese calendar. Her personality also closely matches mine…..
Divination, Wicca , nature worship….all that has been called pagan is beautiful. Witchcraft is not the evil black art we imagine it to be. A witch is a wiccan…witch came about the the middle ages when they burnt any woman who they thought practiced black magic. Magic is magick….pure and white….and beautiful!
Here is an extract………
Contrary to what those who choose to persecute or lie about us wish to believe, Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of thinking and life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists.
Wicca is a deep appreciation and awe in watching the sunrise or sunset, the forest in the light of a glowing moon, a meadow enchanted by the first light of day. It is the morning dew on the petals of a beautiful flower, the gentle caress of a warm summer breeze upon your skin, or the warmth of the summer sun on your face. Wicca is the fall of colorful autumn leaves, and the softness of winter snow. It is light, and shadow and all that lies in between. It is the song of the birds and other creatures of the wild. It is being in the presence of Mother Earths nature and being humbled in reverence.
…………so if that is Wicca…….I am a Wiccan!
