Thirty Day Talisman Challenge – Overall Thoughts #DoMagick

Day Thirty: Talismans – Protection #DoMagick
The Goddess Bastet and I go way back. Ever since we moved into this house over 18 years ago, I have called on Bastet to protect our home, and our cats, and she has been diligent. I find comfort, great comfort, with cats. It’s probably because I’m a cat person. I also think of things like Fun, and Relaxation when…
Day Twenty-Nine: Talismans – Freedom #DoMagick
I titled today’s talisman Freedom because I was talking to a friend earlier today about her birds. I’m not a huge bird fan, and have an aversion to flying things in small spaces.

Day Twenty-Six: Talismans – Intentions #DoMagick
For today’s talisman I decided to set my intentions using keywords. My word for 2019 is JOY. May major arcane card for 2019 is STRENGTH. But there were other things I wanted to incorporate, too, so I wrote down the words as they came to me. I was actually surprised by the words that stand out most, like HOME, LOVE,…

Day Twenty-Four: Talismans – Sigil Collage #DoMagick
I’m not sure why I felt like making a sigil collage today. I suppose it’s not so much a talisman as just an external expression of my inner feelings at this point.
Day Twenty-Three: Talismans – Lucifuge Variant, Strength #DoMagick
I’m still hung up on Lucifuge this month. This is a variant to invoke strength from within. I used bold, fiery colors to indicate action.
Day Twenty-Two: Talismans – Alchemy #DoMagick
Everything is alchemical in creation. It is filtered, synthesized, distilled, macerated, etc… depending on the work. This talisman draws awareness to the alchemy of creation.
