Half the time when I wonder if any of this is real, and I get a sign, it’s something wonderful and awe-inspiring.
The other half of the time, it’s humorous or exasperating in just how obvious it is.
I’ve talked before about how I associate several of my deities with the moon, and about how many mixed feelings I have about that symbolism now, because of the emotional fallout of Otherworld Drama that happened this summer.
The Madman and I were talking about what I could possibly do to help me heal and move on from all this, and he suggested I get a new set of prayer beads. The beads would be a symbol of a clean start for myself in my practice, and a symbol for my chosen Family, rather than something that held old memories.
So I started browsing Etsy.
*Varian finds a set of moon themed prayer beads*
*ravens outside start cawing*
*Varian goes to move away from the beads*
*ravens outside go fucking nuts*
*Varian debates over the beads some more*
*ravens will not shut up*
*Varian adds the beads to his cart and buys them*
*ravens go silent*
