Live Long And Prosper

In honor of Leonard Nimoy, the Blessing card from mine and Katharine Clark's Graven Images Oracle:

The Symbol: On this headstone from the Jewish cemetery, the Cohanim Hands touch thumb-to-thumb, forefinger-to-forefinger. This is the sign of the old priestly tribe of Aaron, and appear on the markers of some of this tribe’s descendants. Holding the hands in this position forms an opening through which God’s radiance can reach down to the congregation. The stylized primrose surrounding the hands mean eternal love, memory and hope. 

Interpretation: Blessing is the “Divine” (fortune, God, Kismet) reaching down to bless you with a sudden unexpected turn of events. This turn is very positive but unpredictable and temporal. There is a chance here to fix a problem, say what went unspoken, and change the small details and nuances. Such actions will have surprising effects in a greater proportion than the initiating act. The time to move is now, however, before the Divine light fades.

Wandering Witchery ~ Mapping the Magic (and a giveaway!)

Over the last seven months I tossed around a few ways of making this announcement but now that the time has come at last I'm finding myself tongue tied--so let's just jump right in: I'm absolutely GIDDY that Llewellyn Worldwide is publishing my project--MAPPING THE MAGIC!

The book is about sacred sites in America (along with other related goodies) and will explore the magic of Washington, D.C. and the states of the Northeast: Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine--as you can see it will hopefully be the first of four books, each covering a different area of the country. I'm still pinching myself about this!

HUGE thanks goes to my amazing agent Natalie Lakosil for making this happen and to my editor Anne Niven over at BBI Media who's been publishing my Wandering Witch feature at Witches & Pagans magazine ♥ 

To celebrate and spread the news about Mapping the Magic here's an awesome GIVEAWAY! Win a TWO year subscription to Witches & Pagans magazine or one of four copies of the current issue of the magazine by entering the rafflecopter giveaway below:
