Black Friday Weekend Sale

Well, it’s been quite the year, hasn’t it? After being laid off from my retail job back in March, I really thought I’d get a ton of work done at home (lots and lots of making!) to get my Etsy shop off life support, but it didn’t happen. Instead, I struggled with depression and anxiety for much of the year, and things only began looking up again for my shop when I added the Tarot readings back in again.

So, for now, the readings are my primary focus, and I’m making other things as I can. But still, as 2020 limps painfully towards its (hopefully not too shocking) series finale, I thought, why not have a sale? It’s the first one I’ve had all year, and it will be the last for at least another six months.

Readings are NOT on sale. However, everything else in my shop is! From now through midnight on Tuesday, you’ll get 25% off all ready-to-ship physical items in the store–no coupon code needed!

Reopening Wytch of the North and my Tarot services!

I haven’t made a big public announcement about this yet, but at least one person has noticed so I guess it’s time to say something: I am reopening Wytch of the North for business, AND I have a couple of listings up for my Tarot reading services! 

Thus far, I only have listings for one simple question and one complex question, because I had some sudden health issues in the middle of revamping the store and didn’t get any further with that project yet. But at least a couple more reading listings will be coming, along with some new products I’ve been envisioning, as soon as I get a chance to work on them again. 

The two new reading options have been priced low to start off with because I think that’s only fair considering that I’ve been out of practice, and out of circulation, for a while, and frankly I’d like to lure back some of my old customers, as well as some new folks. If you aren’t sure which reading would fit your situation, don’t be shy, go ahead and convo me at the shop and we’ll figure it out! Don’t worry at all about “bothering” me; I’m home more or less permanently for the foreseeable future due to COVID shutdowns and my (completely unrelated to COVID) health issues. I was laid off from my part time job back in March, and as a result pretty much my only option to contribute to the household right now (especially with my health issues) is to work on getting my online business flowing again.

Beth and Jo’s Emporium will remain open, and going forward it will become a sort of catch-all shop for whatever I make that doesn’t fit with the witchier vibe of WotN.

A brief statement (Black Lives Matter)

Corrections to the video: The conversation about race and equality has been happening within the Black community forever, obviously. What I meant is that now white people are starting to participate in it and challenge our own privilege. (Also, my adoptive father is unfortunately deceased. But my daughter and my ex-husband are both still Black–not past tense. 🙂 )

There will also be a new Limited Edition Spread debuting shortly, so stay tuned for that!

New batch of tiny totes + holiday shipping deadline!

20181202_150247For anyone who was like, “Wow, I blinked and missed all the tiny totes!”–don’t despair! There are now SIX of these adorable little bags available in the shop, featuring all new (and super high quality) fabric prints! (With more to come as I am able to make them.) These bags are perfect for a number of different uses (including ritual-on-the-go totes), but with the holidays coming, how cute would it be to use these to wrap a gift? It’s a greener choice than wrapping paper, and the bag then becomes part of the gift, as the recipient can keep it and use it for whatever they please!

I’m also at work on a batch of drawstring Tarot bags featuring the same assortment of new prints, so watch for those during the week ahead.

And finally, if you’re thinking of purchasing any of my items as part of your holiday gift-giving for this year, my holiday shipping deadline for estimated USPS delivery within the US only before 12/25 is Tuesday, December 18th. (This is the LAST day prior to Christmas that I will be shipping out orders, so your order needs to have been placed on or before Monday December 17th for it to go out on this date.) Also, if you are waiting til the 17th to pace your order and expecting it to go out on the 18th, I highly recommend upgrading to Priority mail. I try my best, but I’m only one person, and once the USPS has your package I have no further control over it, especially during this hectic time of year.

Stay safe, everyone, and I’ll be back with more soon!

Godspousery PSA: Please read this before you contact me

Because this is starting to become an issue again.

What I can offer you: a paid reading, which you can purchase via my Etsy shop. (Deity Communication is one of my most popular spreads, and I was a practicing seidhkona for many years. But keep in mind that I do NOT offer refunds if the answer is not what you wanted to hear, and I do not shy away from relaying harsh or blunt messages when they are needed.)

What I cannot offer you: correspondence or counseling, either paid or for free, on the topic of being a godspouse, or personal discussion concerning your own intimate experiences with Odin or any other god.

Why not?

First and most importantly, because I don’t want to. I tried to do this kind of thing for years, and it led directly to a three year period of burnout and spiritual crisis. So, I’m sorry but I’m not your girl for this. (I put as many of my older posts, which share parts of my own story, back up on the blog, and have even started to write NEW posts on related topics, because I DO want to help, and people have found my posts helpful.  BUT the fact that I am blogging again does NOT mean I am making myself available for personal counseling of any description. Sorry. Nope.)

Also, I am NOT either a trained spiritual counselor, or an ordained priestess. I’m a cardslinger, artist, crafter, and Witch. I’m also disabled (fibromyalgia and IBS), over fifty, and run a mostly product-based Etsy business. (In addition to, as mentioned, offering paid readings.) So honestly, I don’t have time to do THIS too, even if I wanted to, which I do not.

My best recommendation if you think you might be getting into this path and you don’t know where to turn? Well, for free you can search “godspousery” online and come up with a LOT of information in various locations. Some of it will no doubt vary in quality or usefulness, but honestly, that’s how it goes. Some of the people writing on the topic may (unlike me) even welcome personal correspondence and discussion about it.

If you are in crisis, I recommend you seek out a pagan priest or qualified spiritual counselor; you can find these by searching for “priest of [fill in the name of the god here]” or “spiritual counselor” online. Gather a few names that seem legit, look up some of their references and experience, and ask them for more references. (Legit priests and counselors WILL be willing to provide you with references.) Check on who vouches for them, whether they’ve written books or articles, how many people they’ve helped, what organizations they’re affiliated with, etc., etc. This process takes some time, but it really is not difficult.

If you are NOT in crisis, and you are okay with having a relationship with the god in question, honestly my best advice is to allow Them to lead the way, and let the relationship unfold organically over time. This is what I did. It isn’t a race or a contest. If you feel you aren’t receiving clear input from Them, you could always get a reading–but really, most of Them (especially in the Norse pantheon) will make Their intentions perfectly clear if you just wait.

Hopefully that helps. But again, I am not either qualified or inclined to offer personal one on one guidance on this subject, because trying to do that almost wrecked my own spiritual life. Sorry, but that won’t be happening again.

Happy full moon, everyone! If you’re currently a Patreon supporter at any level, you can find our Lunar Letter for the Taurus full moon here, and our one-card group energy reading here. If you’re a $5+ per month supporter, you can access a Tarot spread for this lunation (to perform for yourself at home, dealing with the themes of this lunation) here.

Not a supporter? If you’re interested, take a look at my Patreon page and see if you’d like to give it a go! All year long, we’ve been exploring the new and full moons as they travel through the Zodiac signs, with journaling and ritual prompts for each lunation. Since we’re almost at the end of the year (can you even believe it), at this point you can access a LOT of content on my Patreon blog for as little as $1 per month. (And there are some other pretty great rewards, too!)
