08:58 am - Paradigm Shifts, Forbidden Names, and Six-Shooting Sigils
The past two to three weeks have probably been the most magically active of my life. I do know that the activity has always gone in spurts, of course, but everything I've done for the past couple of weeks has been centered around magic. The fact that I've been posting so lightly bears this out.

From studying palindromes to learning magical names; from preparing oaths to building relationships with spirits; from reading Lovecraft to fact-checking Starhawk; from examining servitors to creating six-shooter sigils, everything is centered on magic.

I've never studied so hard in my life.

Every altar piece is now cleaned and polished. Herbs are arriving. Journals are covered from front to back. Instructions are left behind. Wax figures are prepared.

And there's still so much to be done.

This is a time of magic, a time of wonder. Every waking moment is considering a new shift on reality. Every breath is uttering forbidden names and strange syllables. Every person is a potential apprentice or competitor.

Magical musical mutations, six-shooting sigils, disasterous desires denied, working will wakened.

Maybe it's the deadline that looms, but everything works faster and harder just now.

I wish :) "want" amd "can" are two different things at this point. I have to be in my office on Monday, August 1, hell or high water, or people will kill me. No joke :)

But more importantly, I have a ritual to run for the Grove on Sunday. I do expand my festival intake each year, though, so I'll certainly be putting it on the list of possibilities next year.

But I expect you to have fun. This is required. Go do it.

It's a project I'm working on. I'm hoping to get it taken care of this week, with a write-up. That may or may not happen, but really, it's just fun.

But don't worry, I'll have something shortly about it.

Why thank you :)

(of course, now that I've said I will, I have to write something up for sure)

I totally understand that! Who knows what will inspire me next or into what direction.

Inspiration should be a Virtue. Think maybe I'll write something about that for my DP. .....

It was in regards to your study of palindromes. Admittedly, it's nonsensical.

I kind of tie this kind of stuff up to Gath Pedmon. I create my own dead-line, after which, I know that things will change. Then I find all kinds of weird energy builds up around it, the pace quickens and maybe some things even actually gets resolved.

Its a fun time to be you, by the sound of it.
