Tarot and Oracle Decks for Sale

As I mentioned in a recent Facebook post, I’m doing a little purging of my Tarot and oracle card collection, because there are a number of decks I don’t use and/or couldn’t connect with, and would love to see go to someone who will love them and get some use out of them. Part of the reason for this purge is to hopefully generate a bit of extra income, with the shop being so slow. Part of it, though, is that I’m feeling the need to unclutter right now on a number of levels–physically as well as spiritually.

So, here’s what I’ve got on offer! All prices are as listed OR best offer, but I WILL need to add shipping costs to them, which will  be $5 for US addresses, $20 for international addresses for the first deck, $2 added on for each additional deck to be shipped. (Sorry, but Tarot decks and books are heavy and  international postage has gone up significantly this year.) I will refund excess international postage that amounts to more than a dollar or two, just as I do on Etsy.

If you are interested in any of these, please comment to this post with your email, what you want to purchase, and what you are offering to pay, and if your offer is acceptable I will send you my Paypal address with your total amount due. EDITED TO ADD: PLEASE ALSO MENTION WHETHER OR NOT YOU ARE IN THE US SO I CAN CALCULATE YOUR POSTAGE, AND INCLUDE YOUR MAILING ADDRESS WHEN YOU SEND YOUR PAYMENT.

All comments to this post will be screened. The deck names are linked to Amazon so that you can see the decks as well as what they are currently going for new.

Decks will be put in order and smudged before sending them off to their new homes.

Vacation photos!

Recently, my daughter and her boyfriend visited for a week, and while I did work at least part time while they were here, for their last two days they rented a car and I took both days off to go with them and Jo (and the dog) on adventures! The first day, we went to the Cascades Raptor Center, one of my favorite places in Eugene, which is not easily accessible except by car. Most of the photos I took ended up being too blurry to share, but here are a few:

Osprey!

On the second day with the car, we took Corbie J. with us, and headed for the coast! Due to the fact that neither Jo nor I drive, this was his very first trip to the ocean.

Just in time for Father’s Day: Brand New Men’s Bracelets

I can’t believe I waited so long to do this! A few customers have commented from time to time that they would have bought a particular piece of jewelry if it hadn’t been so “femme” or “sparkly”; however, I will admit that the real kick-in-the-pants for me was my daughter and her boyfriend wondering (during a recent visit) why I didn’t have any jewelry for men in my shop.

Hmm, I thought to myself, why don’t I? Well, it’s time to fix that!

To celebrate the new product line, please enter the coupon code 10OFF2ORMORE to take 10% off any TWO or more bracelets, malas, witches’ ladders, and/or mini-malas in the shop! This includes the new men’s bracelets. The coupon may NOT be used on scented items; it applies to jewelry items only. (I suppose you could use it on earrings, but you’d have to purchase more than two pairs; there is a $40 minimum purchase required.)

And so, without further ado, here are the new additions, just listed today! If these do well, there will be more to come! Each bracelet is strung on super-strong 14 lb break/stretch strength stretchy cord, and each one measures 8″ (which will fit most men). Bracelets can be resized upon request.

Admin note: some changes underway

So, due to the fact that business has been extremely slow for the past couple of months, I am looking at some changes to make going forward more sustainable for me. I have been considering these changes for a while now, but just this morning received a big shove to finally go through with them. There are going to be some major overhauls to my product line, beginning with the candles.

This is historically the off-season for candle sales anyway (they seem to be a seasonal cold-weather purchase for most people–which makes sense, since pagans are typically outside enjoying nature in the spring and summer) so I am starting with the candles. The current line of candles I have offered to date is actually quite expensive for me to produce, between the essential oils and the containers used; it is also the product I historically have to issue replacements for most frequently and that costs the most to ship, so it makes sense to start here.

What this means for my customers is that for the time being, no candles will be available for sale in my shop while I work on overhauling my candle line. As of right now, my plan is that the candles WILL return, in some format; I just need to figure out in what format it makes the most sense for me to offer them, and then create a completely new line of stock samples to photograph for listings. This will take me some time, and I am at the point where it really does not make sense to have to replenish essential oils for the occasional candle order. (The fully scented candles I have been offering eat up teaspoonfuls of oil per candle, as compared to the much smaller amounts needed for incense and perfume oils.)

My incense and perfume oils are due for an eventual overhaul as well, since there doesn’t seem to be the demand for them that there once was (again, I am assuming this is a mostly seasonal issue, as they still receive consistent 5-star reviews)–but I take less of a loss if someone orders them while I am figuring that out, so we’re starting with the candles.

I truly apologize to anyone inconvenienced by this!

Travelling a path between Church and Circle

Right now I should be at my HEMA class, but seeing as I realised I forgot to pick the car up from the parents’ place just as I was walking out the door with all my gear, my Historical European Martial Arts will have to wait until next week, which is no end of annoying. (Interestingly enough, while I’ve been doing HEMA since I was 18 my prowess in swordfighting has nothing to do with my devotional relationship to Freyja, despite Her battle-woman status.)
So, instead of hitting people with swords and getting multiple bruises in return (I’m hideously out of practice) I thought I’d write up a few things that have happened over the past week, which while not deserving of a journal entry of their own can be lumped in together in a ‘this is what I’ve been up to recently’-type post.

Last Monday I went to Treadwell’s…

Also just added: four brand new wrist malas

These new wrist malas were also just added yesterday, on 5/17!

Carnelian wrist mala for courage, confidence, vitality, and enhanced sexual libido.

The simple yet elegant design of this bracelet allows the natural beauty of the deep orange-red faceted carnelian beads to shine through! There are 18 8mm carnelian rounds, with rhinestone and seed bead accents and a single carved golden hematite focal bead. Hematite is a talisman for grounding and manifestation–bringing spiritual achievements, energies and visions down to earth.

The beads are strung on super-sturdy, thick stretchy cord (1 mm thick, with a 14 lb stretch/break strength) and will comfortably fit a 6 1/2 – 7″ wrist.

Moonstone and aquamarine wrist mala for connecting to the energies of the divine feminine, opening to receive psychic gifts, and enhancing communication with the spiritual world.

There are 14 8mm moonstone rounds, with 4 8mm aquamarine rounds, rhinestone and seed bead accents, and a single carved silver hematite focal bead framed by 2 6mm aquamarines.

The beads are strung on super-sturdy, thick stretchy cord (1 mm thick, with a 14 lb stretch/break strength) and will comfortably fit a 6 1/2 – 7″ wrist.

Prosperity Yoga Bracelet: Citrine aids in manifestation and the strengthening of personal will; it is said to be the only gemstone that cannot absorb negative energy. Green aventurine attracts wealth and boosts optimism, confidence, and renewed vitality.

This radiant yoga bracelet was designed to invite the blessings of prosperity and abundance into your life and assist with money magick and manifestation. There are 14 glowing 8mm citrine rounds accented with metallic gold Toho seed beads. Six 6mm green aventurine beads frame a gold-plated pewter focal bead at the back of the bracelet, and two more 6mm green aventurine beads frame a 6mm citrine round in front. (The bracelet can be worn with either side facing the front of the wrist.)

The beads are strung on super-sturdy, thick stretchy cord (1 mm thick, with a 14 lb stretch/break strength) and will comfortably fit a 7 – 7 1/2″ wrist.

I designed this bracelet to emphasize the natural beauty of the orange sodalite, a gorgeous stone blending deep blues with swirls of peach, orange, and cream. There are 23 8mm orange sodalite rounds, accented by metallic saffron Toho seed beads and a single gold-plated pewter focal bead which can be worn either at the front or back of the bracelet.

The beads are strung on super-sturdy, thick stretchy cord (1 mm thick, with a 14 lb stretch/break strength) and will comfortably fit a 7 1/2 – 8″ wrist.

All four of these bracelets are only $25 each. You can browse my full selection of yoga/mala-style bracelets here.

Brand new 108-bead knotted malas in the shop!

These three beauties were just added yesterday, on 5/17!

IMG_6355 IMG_6356

Although designed with Loki in mind, this mala could be used with any other deity or spirit with whom the gemstones and symbolism work for you! It has not been consecrated to anyone specifically.

The beads are individually hand-knotted on strong dark blue silk beading cord. Hand-knotting adds visual interest and durability, and makes the beads feel wonderful in your hands during meditation. There are 108 beads (6mm carnelian and 8mm orange sodalite rounds), with metallic navy iris Toho seed bead spacers. The 8mm orange sodalite rounds are placed at every count of nine beads. (If you use your bead to recite mantras, these larger beads will help you keep count of your repetitions, even with your eyes shut.) The mala finishes with a beautiful 12mm carnelian meru (or “mountain”) bead, framed by 6mm orange sodalite rounds, and a plush gold silk tassel.

Carnelian boosts courage, confidence, vitality, and sexual libido. Sodalite deepens intuition and enhances insight and mental agility, and acts as a guide during meditation and shamanic journeys, enabling deeper levels of trance.

This mala is $75.

Although designed with Freyja in mind, this mala could be used with any other deity or spirit with whom the gemstones and symbolism work for you! It has not been consecrated to anyone specifically.

The beads are individually hand-knotted on strong bright coral silk beading cord. Hand-knotting adds visual interest and durability, and makes the beads feel wonderful in your hands during meditation. There are 108 beads (6mm golden, red and blue tiger eye with 6mm black lava stone and 8mm citrine rounds), with metallic saffron, gold, and aluminum Toho seed bead spacers. The 8mm citrine beads are placed at numbers 27, 54 and 55, and 82. (If you use your bead to recite mantras, these larger beads will help you keep count of your repetitions, even with your eyes shut.) The mala finishes with a beautiful 12mm citrine meru (or “mountain”) bead framed by rough Baltic amber chips and a plush bright coral silk tassel.

Tiger eye supports the first through third chakras, facilitating confidence and enthusiasm and aiding in maintaining a balance between extremes–light and dark, mundane and spiritual, negative and positive. It assists one in making choices based on one’s own inner discernment. Lava stone has incredible grounding qualities and helps with calming emotions and shedding unwanted attachments. Citrine aids in manifestation and the strengthening of personal will; it is said to be the only gemstone that cannot absorb negative energy.

This mala is $65

IMG_6414

Although designed with Njord–the Norse god of the seacoast and patriarch of the Vanir–in mind, this mala could be used with any other deity or spirit with whom the gemstones and symbolism work for you! It has not been consecrated to anyone specifically.

The beads are individually hand-knotted on strong sandy taupe silk beading cord. Hand-knotting adds visual interest and durability, and makes the beads feel wonderful in your hands during meditation. There are 108 beads (8mm blue apatite with 8mm aquamarine and 8mm white rainbow moonstone rounds), with metallic saffron Toho seed bead spacers. The 8mm aquamarine beads placed at numbers 27, 54 and 55, and 82, are framed by seed beads to set them apart both visually and by touch. (If you use your bead to recite mantras, these larger beads will help you keep count of your repetitions, even with your eyes shut.) The mala finishes with a dazzling rainbow moonstone meru (or “mountain”) bead (measuring about 3/4″) and a plush gold silk tassel.

Blue apatite clears and stimulates the third eye chakra, boosting inner vision and psychic ability and helping one connect with spiritual guidance. Aquamarine enhances intuition and brings courage and clarity to inner knowledge. Rainbow moonstone grants purification and psychic protection.

This mala is $70.

You can wear your mala as a full-length necklace for a boho look (each of these measures about 39″ in diameter, and will come down to the solar plexus area on an average woman), doubled around your neck as a two-stranded statement necklace, or wrapped multiple times around your wrist as a bracelet.

Your new mala comes to you cleansed, charged, and wrapped, ready for gift-giving (or as a wonderful present for yourself). I make all of my malas with intent, positive energy, and loving attention to detail.

Traditionally, malas are used as prayer beads to help focus the mind during prayer or meditation, and if you like using them in this way you can let your fingers travel over each bead as you repeat a mantra or prayers of your own choosing. You can also simply hold the beads in your hands or over your heart as an aid to relaxation and prayer, or an aid to focus when setting your intentions, and place them on your shrine or altar when not in use or being worn.
