The Wild Willow Journal


Hello all, I am Radairc. I am Pagan, Scorpio, Artist, Writer, Witch, Tarot Reader, Reader in General, Librarian, History Lover, History Channel Corrector, and Acknowledge'er of Loki's position at the head of my diety pantheon table. That basically means that I obsessed with the occult, nature, spirtuality. I also have an obsession with doors, arches, lights espeically candles, foxes, and soooo much more. It will all come out here, I'm sure. Hoping to move from the NYC metropolitan area to Maine soonish. *Crosses fingers* Wish me luck! :D

The Goddess of the Day - Sheila-na-gig, the Celtic goddess of birth, protection, fertility, creativity, awakenings, and openings. Carvings and statues of the primitive goddess can be found over many church archways in Ireland, Britain, Wales, and Scotland. She wards off death and evil. Sheila-na-gig boldly, proudly, without a hint of shame exhibits herself to the world, and as such she is an icon to many feminists. Through her exhibitionism, Sheila invites others to rethink what obscene and proper is as well as to step outside their comfort zone and live life boldly. She reminds people to open yourself up to love, laugh, life, play, creation, change, etc …

While Sheila-na-gig was chosen randomly, I know it wasn’t coincidentally as she has been pulling up a chair to my own pantheon table.

God of the Day - Adad, the Akkadian god of weather, hurricanes, storms, thunder & lightning, and rain. God of divination through aruspicina (through entrails) and astragalomancy (through dice casting). In Sumerian he is Ishkur; Aramaic and Canaanite he is Hadad. We are definitely in his season know.

American History 101

truth. i honestly dont give a rats ass if you unfollow me for this. learn the truth, sometimes the truth hurts. 

^

Reblogging for the gif about shrinking Native American territories. Just look at the huge difference between 1860 and 1870. In just ten years.

This is one of the best posts on Tumblr.

you can pretend, but… well, thats all you can do because these are facts.

L

There are also accounts of Natives being enslaved and then used as indentured servants … so genocide AND slavery of one race …

So, I made a spread to go with my Deity Communication Spread! You can use them together or separately or not at all!
Card One is the deity — this is the equivalent to the first card in the Deity Communication Spread.
Card Two is one of the qualities/traits associated with them. I tend to read this as a more “negative” trait. Something that might seem scary or intimidating.
Card Three is another personality trait, but this one is usually read as being seen as more positive.
Card Four is what this deity rules over, or has power over.
Card Five will be for something that the deity is associated with, like a symbol or animal or something. (In my first test I got a Queen court card and the Queen itself was the answer there)
These things can be pieced together to try to get a fuller picture of who it is you might be dealing with. If you’ve already used the Deity Communication Spread, you can take Card One from that reading and place it here — and if you haven’t, you can put Card One from this reading into the communication spread, once you’ve identified them and want to know what they want.
This one has been working out pretty well for me, so hopefully y’all will like it!
