Halloween Tarot for the Week–7 of Ghosts

Leave a comment
Uncategorized

For the upcoming week, I drew the 7 of Ghosts. This card parallels the non-Halloween version of this card, the 7 of cups. Picking this card couldn’t have been more timely, as I recently had an epiphany about how out of touch I’ve been with reality. I’ve become more conscious to how negative my thoughts are and how dark my reality can be in comparison to actual life. This is a card that represents avoiding […]

Halloween Party 2019–Viking

For this year’s soiree, the plan is to continue with the same theme as last year–viking. Viking is a tough theme for me to conceptualize and I tend to decorate in a theme of an old fantasy tavern. Lots of autumn tones and unusual knickknacks. My hope for this year is that I’ll be able to find the time to learn runes so that I’ll be able to do a reading for the guests. I […]

I figured now would be the perfect time to whip out my Halloween Tarot deck by Kipling West. This deck is full of inspiration for Halloween–a whirl of colorful and strange characters that suck you into their spooky world. It’s a place full of magic and intrigue. In terms of a question, I just asked the cards for a general overview card. I didn’t harbor a specific inquiry or have anything in particular that I […]

Tee hee hee, it’s only my favorite season of the year! Meh to winter, spring, and summer–autumn is my time. I delight in the cooling temperatures, pursuing the aisles for everything black and orange. In the wintertime, I like to listen to carols but for Halloween, I love to fall into the rhymes of a spooky verse. All Souls’ Night, 1917 Hortense King Flexner You heap the logs and try to fill The little room […]

Halloween Party 2018–Mostly thoughts on Last Year

One of my favorite aspects of Halloween is that it seems so much easier to get people together. I love mingling with old friends though sadly, this time of year seems like the only time I get to see some of them 😦 Each year, I start a little earlier when it comes down to planning for my epic Halloween party. My friends and I try harder each year to create a more mind-blowing spectacle. […]

The Best Halloween from Dollar Tree

I have to laugh at myself, because I keep thinking I don’t have a specific Halloween style. I must be “all over the place” but this isn’t true. I really go for the cheap, cutesy stuff. It’s my way of “rebelling” from the demands of society. In the professional world, I hate how everything has to be serious and organized. It’s so fucking boring. Everything has to be “a certain way” and “serious” and all […]

Bwhahaha…YES!! I am always so excited to shop for Halloween. This time of year is the only time you’ll see me shop for decorations. I probably own enough black and orange to completely design a house or two…yet I must purchase more *____*… This year at Target, I finally broke down and allowed myself to indulge in a few items that have been stuck on my wants list for the last few years: lighting. I […]

Yesterday I took a trip with my boyfriend to Spirit Halloween. We found ourselves in a bit of trouble–hauling a giant bag out of the store instead of window shopping *insert laughter* One of my finds was this cool sparkly LED face candle ^_^ It reminds me of an enchanted candle of a Disney movie. The candle flickers while the face changes from one vibrant color to another. Tee hee, I’m so ready for this […]
