Partly Cloudy…

Woke up this morning and shopped at Whole Foods for veg and Kefir (goat’s milk, that is).  Went to woman’s workshop and studied “movement” that I would do willingly as opposed to that which I might have to will myself to do.  Sigh…not much of anything comes to mind.  I despise all activities that are…

Urban Dictionary

It is my opinion that the history in the better part of the 21st century will be written by the people (all people, and yes, that does include under-educated folks).  The thing I like about it is how dynamic our world has become — well, it has always been dynamic, but with the digital age…

Sweet Dreams in the New Year

Happy New Year to everyone!  On to a smashing-good 2010! 🙂 Sometimes the best divination is simple.  Pulling one card from any kind of deck can be magical and/or medicinal.  It all depends on if you are the type of person, like me, who seeks symbolism in everything. After a NYE dream of thousands of…

Snake Charm

It has been a while since I have had a moment to post.  The end of my work cycle has come and gone, but the new cycle has already begun (!).  Vacation will come soon, but not soon enough.  To keep me going, I decided I would take a couple of days before I had…

Unknown cards

One silly system that I have had for a long time and even used in the classroom for writing prompts isn’t a divination system, but a collection of oval shaped mini-cards. Each card descibes “you”. So really it is more like a self-help tool. I have no idea what these cards are called; I got…

The (Un)Knowable Universe

What is the extent by which the universe is knowable? My 5 year old told us the other day that “there is no last number.”  So it seems he has the most knowable fact right there at the tip of his cognition.  He can know that and feel comfortable even though the rest of the…

Predator or Prey?

I have been thinking about what separates humans from animals (if anything). I think about our connections to the animal kingdom literally almost everyday. Now that I have two sons this musing has only increased.  Lately, I think the only separation might be that humans have a crazy choice that we have to make multiple…

The Way

I randomly flipped to a page yesterday morning to see what little tidbit I could reflect upon in my favorite Taoist book called EVERYDAY TAO, by Deng Ming-Dao. It was awesome, and applied instantaneously to my life. That is the beauty of random magic and why I decided to make a blog with this theme….

There are no accidents, part II

Today’s daily draw was part of a non-accident. In other words, I was planning to come home from work today and find a system that I use for divination and pick a card, or throw a rune and see what came up. But instead, I went to an after work appointment with my awesome yoga…

Celtic Random

I will spare you the details on the history of St. Patrick’s Day.  Though I am super tempted to do it. 😉 For tonight’s random magic, I will be pulling from a Celtic Tarot in honor of the holiday.  One thing I have to say about this deck is that it has always been a…
