The assignment was to lay down three cards, and then to create an object based on those cards – something to keep close by when i am reading, to remind me of my connection to the craft of divination.
What dropped? 6 Diamonds, 3 Spades, and 5 Hearts.
My idea was to use six jewels or beads (diamonds) to adorn something of metal (spades), then to charge it energetically with some kinda sexy mojo (five hearts).
I looked through my collection of charms and things, but nothing felt right.
For some reason brass was in my head — the metal needed to be brass.
The next day, a package arrived in the mail from a friend in my cartomancy community.
In it was a pack of playing cards, along with a lovely little brass bell.
I knew she was sending me a pack of cards, but the bell!! what a beautiful surprise.
…a brass object found its way to me, from someone right in my card reading community. ❤ i love these magical synchronicities.
so i took this new deck sent by my friend, and asked the cards; what will our work together be like? (i always ask a new deck of cards a question like this at first.)
Ace of Clubs, Ace of Spades, Four Hearts.
we’re getting right down to business. it’s a fresh start to be sure… digging in and piercing through… all resulting in love. (at least enough to have my corners covered.)
I decided to adorn the bell with these Rose Quartz beads, which i had tucked away in my jewelry-making stash.
…now i just need to add some sexy kind of mojo.
What synchronicities have happened in your life lately?
lots of love,
UPDATE: turns out the bell was used in an art installation at burning man last year called ‘Axis Mundi’. the mojo is real! she followed a last-minute instinct and threw it in the package with the cards. sometimes i love how this world works.
